Welcome to week nine of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
Sale-a-bration ends this Wednesday 31st of August so I’ve created four more Christmas cards that showcase the gorgeous Rings of Love DSP.
The first three “simple stamping” cards don’t require a die cutting machine or a punch.
My fourth Christmas card uses the dies from the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Timber Embossing Folder (both free with a $90 order), paired with the coordinating Ringed With Nature bundle.
For the simple stamping cards the “Merry Christmas” sentiment stamp from the Ringed With Nature has been stamped in Crumb Cake to match the cardstock base.
The simplicity of this design lets the DSP really shine – all I’ve added for the embellishments is a bow of linen thread tied around the Basic White layer before it is adhered to the card base.
A large gold Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequin adds a tiny touch of bling for each of the cards.
The colour scheme for my fourth card comes from another sheet of the Rings of Love DSP. Poppy Parade and Mint Macaron are a lovely combination and a fresh take on the traditional red and green for Christmas.
I ran my Early Espresso ink pad inside the top of the Timber Embossing Folder (it has Stampin’ Up! logo on the outside) before embossing the Crumb Cake cardstock – I love the realistic effect this gives.
The little twigs and sprigs are die cut in Basic White before being coloured in using Soft Suede, Poppy Parade and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.
The tree rings are die cut from the Rings of Love DSP using the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder.
The gorgeous heart is a stamp from the Ringed With Nature stamp set that I fussy cut out, as is the “Merry Christmas” sentiment, stamped in Soft Suede.

Welcome to week twelve of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Cherry Cobbler.
I love Cherry Cobbler on Christmas cards so I’ve paired it with the FREE (with $90 order) Rings of Love DSP to make a Christmas card for this week.
The gorgeous Rings of Love DSP and other Sale-a-bration products are only available until August 31, or when sold out – the Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes have already sold out.
I’ve used the tree ring pattern from the Rings of Love DSP for my card because the tree rings on this patterned paper can be die cut and embossed using the all-in-one Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder.
I love the realistic texture this Hybrid Embossing Folder gives to the tree rings and I don’t have to stamp a thing!
This is how I lined up the tree ring images on the DSP with the all-in-one Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. Using a glue dot really helps.
The Timber embossing folder on the Basic white card stock layer was the perfect match for the embossed tree rings.
I used my light and dark Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to colour in the twigs, branches and berries, all die cut using the smaller dies from the Tree Rings dies.
The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler and die cut using the Seasonal Labels die.
The Cherry Cobbler pearls come from the Festive Pearls and a linen thread bow completes the card.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Tina Gillespie – I can’t wait to see what Tina has made this week!
