Welcome to week eighteen of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
From tomorrow, November 1, the Fitting Florets Collection from the upcoming January – June Mini Catalogue will be available to order and it includes two products only available for limited time: the Framed & Festive Stamp Set and the Fitting Florets DSP.
The Framed & Festive stamp set is a really versatile Christmas sentiment stamp set that works with any Christmas products. I’ve paired it with the Christmas Season stamp set and the coordinating Seasonal Labels dies for this week’s Heart of Christmas card.
The Basic White layer has been die cut an angle using the largest of the stitched rectangle dies. This adds visual interest and draws your attention to the bunch of holly berries and leaves.
My traditional red and green colour combination uses Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake and Basic White. Fine tipped glue has been added to the holly berries to make them shine.
The sentiment has been die cut and framed using the middle two square Stylish Shapes dies. I really like the mix of fonts in the Christmas sentiments in the Framed & Festive stamp set.
Another sentiment from the Framed & Festive stamp set has been used for the inside of the card – I think I will be using this sentiment a lot for my Christmas cards this year.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Woollard – I can’t wait to see what Rachel has created today!

Welcome to week eighteen 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 Early Espresso, the darkest of our neutrals family.
Early Espresso is such a dark colour I normally only use a little of it to make trees, wood and branches, however, for this card I decided to totally embrace this deep rich brown colour, using it with the darkest of the Brushed Metallic Cardstock to create a plethora of pine cones for my monochromatic card.
I seem to be permanently on a default button that is set to using Basic White and I always forget to use Very Vanilla, but not this week!
This card was super quick to make because the Early Espresso layer and the Brushed Metallic Cardstock layer are each cut using these two enormous dies in the Christmas Pinecones dies.
The Early Espresso faux suede trim is threaded through a Seasonal Label Dies stamped with the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Christmas to Remember Stamp Set and embellished with a Natural Woven Ribbon bow.
Although it doesn’t say it on the Stampin’ Up! website, this ribbon is actually Very Vanilla.
With all the foil and the dark colours this was a super hard card to photograph, however, if you look closely you can see the Very Vanilla Classic Matte Dots that finish my Early Espresso card off.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Michele Taylor – I can’t wait to see what Michele has made this week!
