Cherry Cobbler Christmas Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

Cherry Cobbler Christmas Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

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!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week two of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

Tonight I have three more cards to share with you that use the FREE (with any order over $90) SALE-a-bration Rings Of Love designer series paper that I also used last week to make a Crumb Cake Caravan card.

Tonight’s cards use different patterns from the Rings Of Love DSP that feature mainly Night of Navy and Mint Macaroon. I love this combination of moody blues and aquas!

As well as the Rings Of Love designer series paper, these three cards all use a new punch bundle that I love for its versatility, affordability and ease of use: the Handmade Wishes Bundle.

The Handmade Wishes Bundle includes the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set and the Handmade Tag Punch and it’s ideal for making both tags and cards for Christmas as well as for other occasions too.

The inspiration for card one came from the bottom left card sample (image above) on page 21 of the July -December mini catalogue.

I loved the look of the Wonderful Snowflakes sitting behind the punched homemade tag shape with the words “love, peace & joy” on top.

I used the handmade tag punch to punch out a tag from Mint Macaron card stock and then used a blending brush to add Night of Navy ink around the edges.

The inside uses more stamps from the Handmade Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy and Mint Macaron.

Card two uses a stunning medallion pattern from the “Rings Of Love” designer series paper, made to look more “Christmasy” with the white heat embossed “Merry Christmas” sentiment that pairs together two of the sentiments from the Handmade Wishes stamp set.

I’ve used some of the smaller stamps for the inside of this card.

Card three uses the DSP with the little houses. This time I white heat embossed the punched out tag as well as the Christmas sentiment.

My cards also feature the new Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems! (I used the Coastal Cabana coloured gem), Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, silver Simply Elegant Trim and the Wonderful Snowflakes.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Amie McIlroy – I can’t wait to see what Amie has made this week!

Stampin’ Up! Tree Lot Dies Card – AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Tree Lot Dies Card – AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week one of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

That’s right, our Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop is back for another exciting year of Christmas fun and creativity. We will continue to share weekly Christmas creations every Monday at 8pm, finishing up on November 28th.

SALE-a-bration only runs from 1 July – 31 August, so I’m sharing a card tonight that features my absolute favourite SALE-a-bration item, the adorable Tree Lot dies. These dies are free when you purchase $180 or more in a single order and you get 24 dies in the set.

There are so many scenes you can make with the Tree Lot Dies and they also coordinate with a gorgeous new stamp set from the July-December 2022 catalogue, the Trees For Sale Stamp Set.

The colour scheme for my card is quite unusual for a Christmas card, however it was inspired by the tree pattern in the Rings Of Love designer series paper – this is my second favourite SALE-a-bration item!

I loved the idea of a little caravan, parked in the middle of nowhere, celebrating Christmas by stringing up some fairy lights in the forest and adding some sparkly gold stars to one of the trees.

I’ve used the tiny star dies, the wreath die and the bow dies to die cut the sparkly stars in the tree, the wreath on the caravan door and the bows on the poles from the new Glimmer 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Paper. 

Metallics, glimmer paper and foils can be really hard to photograph inside so I took this photo outside to try to better capture all of the the shimmer and sparkle on my card!

The string of lights is stamped in Soft Suede with little gold lights created with the new Festive Pearls (they come in Cherry Cobbler, gold, silver and Soft Succulent).

The caravan base is Crumb Cake card stock with the ribbed metal section of the caravan die cut from gold foil. The curtain is Soft Suede card stock. I just love all these tiny detailed dies!

A couple of extra gold stars decorate the trees I stamped on the inside of my card.

I felt there was more than enough happening on the front of this card, so I didn’t add a sentiment to the front, but I may well change my mind and add one before I post it.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Amie McIlroy – I can’t wait to see what Amie has made this week!
