Stampin’ Up! Merry & Bright Christmas Card

Stampin’ Up! Merry & Bright Christmas Card

Are you ready for 17 weeks of Christmas inspiration?

Yes, I know it’s still 20 weeks today until Christmas, however time does fly and it’s also less than a month until the Stampin’ Up! 2023 September-December Mini Catalogue (AKA the Christmas Catty) goes live on 6 September.

So, beginning tonight, our Art with Heart team will be sharing Christmas inspiration, tips and tricks every Monday night for 17 weeks right up until November 27th.

If you haven’t already received your paper copy of the Stampin’ Up! 2023 September-December Mini Catalogue in the post, here’s a sneak peek of the cover. Isn’t it stunning?

Luckily, as a demonstrator, I already have a copy of the catalogue and I was able to place an order last week which I received just in time to make a card for our very first 2023 Heart of Christmas blog hop.

I’ve decided to start my 17 weeks of Christmas card making using a one of the brightest, boldest and happiest bundles in the catalogue – the Merry & Bright bundle.

We’re not permitted to share the inside pages of the catalogue until September 6, however I can show you my own photos of the products I’ve already bought.

Introducing the fun and fabulous Merry & Bright bundle!

My card’s colour scheme is basically an assortment of scraps of bright and happy cardstock colours that were lying around on my craft table.

TOP TIP – The silver foil was adhered to an adhesive sheet before die cutting. This makes it super easy to position and reposition the die cut pieces on the card without any glue mess. The die cuts basically become a repositionable sticker!

After adhering all of the light bulbs and strings, the “Merry & Bright” sentiment was stamped in Memento, fussy cut with Paper Snips and adhered to the card from using foam adhesive strips for extra dimension.

I’ve added impact to the sentiment using the “sparkle” stamp (actually designed to be used with the light bulbs) and some of the tiny silver offcuts from the inside of the light filaments.

The card inside is decorated with leftover die cut pieces as well as a mix of sentiment stamps from the Merry & Bright stamp set.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rosa Leyden. I can’t wait to see what Rosa has made this week.

If at any time you find a broken link, you can find the complete list of all participants on Sharon’s blog.

If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.

I’ll be back on Wednesday with the AWH Colour Creations blog where we will be showcasing Cajun Craze.

Wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
