Heart of Christmas Week 6


Welcome to week 6 of the Art With Heart Heart of Christmas blog hop. Did you know that there are only 14 weeks until Christmas as of this week? I am so sure that those weeks are going to fly by but luckily I will at least have made all of my Christmas cards hopefully by the start of December this year! Here's hoping hey?

This week I have chosen my inspiration from the Dashing Deer bundle. The bundle consists of matching dies to the stamp sets which for me is heaven as it means no fussy cutting! The stamp set also includes some great stamps that can be used for the inside of the card to make it easy as well. 


 Once again I have used yet another paper from the Joyous Noel DSP. The paper is so versatile and every sheet if gorgeous.
I have also chosen copper foil  to edge the corners of the card, and not sure if you can see it from the photo but the deer is actually embossed with copper powder and finally a trim of Tranquil tide ruffled ribbon and a couple of pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan pearls.
I have also stamped off the small flower as a background for the deer but it is so feint it's hard to see.
I hope you like my latest Christmas creation and that you take the time to visit all of the other lovely members participating in the blog this week. You can do that by returning to Claire Daly's blog.
Hope you have a wonderful week

Heart Of Christmas Week 5






Welcome to week 5 of the Art with Heart Heart of Christmas blog hop for week 5. The weeks just seem to be flying by at the moment so it's great that by participating in this blog hop I'm actually getting a great start on my Christmas cards for the upcoming season.

This week I have chosen to once again use the stunning Joyous Noel DSP. I find that this paper has so many different looks to create some beautiful cards. I'm not sure if you can see the detail from the photo but I have actually embossed the paper with the Subtle embossing folder just to add a bit of texture. I'm also loving teaming it with Merry Merlot. For the edges I have used the Delicate Details edgelits from the Annual Catalogue. The sentiment is from Timeless Tidings which you can purchase individually or purchase the Timeless Tidings project kit for some lovely easy to make cards.


I hope that you like my latest card and are enjoying the inspiration for your cards this coming Christmas. For even more inspiration you can see the rest of the teams creations by visiting Claire Daly's blog
Thanks again

Heart of Christmas Week 4 2018







Welcome to Week 4 of The Art with Heart, Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2018. Once again I hope that you are enjoying the inspiration from all of the other members.

Yay! from today everyone is able to purchase some of the beautiful new products from our brand new Holiday catalogue. So if you don't already have a demonstrator to help you and you are in Australia and would like to purchase any of the Stampin Up! products then please contact me via my Facebook tab at the top of this page.

I have to confess that this week I have been very time poor after having a flying visit interstate for Father' Day, so I have chosen to CASE a card previously made by Angelique Nederpel that I found on Pinterest. Hope you like it.


It features the DSP, Under the Mistletoe which is in our Annual Catalogue, as well as some framelits and thinlits from the same. I have also trimmed the envelope with the same DSP in an endeavour to use as much of it as possible.Oh and the embossing folder is also from there too! In fact the only items from the new Holiday catalogue are the sentiment, from Peaceful Noel and the bling!


 As always one has to have some bling for Christmas.

I hope that you like my latest card and are enjoying the inspiration for your cards this coming Christmas. For even more inspiration you can see the rest of the teams creations by visiting Clare Daly's blog

Once again I have chosen to feature the gorgeous Joyous Noel DSP and added some bling with the Tranquil Tide glimmer paper and the Detailed Baubles thinlits dies as well as a bit more bling with silver mini sequin trim. Nothing like a bit of bling at Christmas!

Heart of Christmas Week 2 2018





Welcome to week 2 of the Art With Heart, Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2018.
Today's card features some of the gorgeous new products from our upcoming Holiday catalogue which you will be able to purchase from September 1st. As a demonstrator I have the lucky chance to get my hands on the new products before everyone who is not a demonstrator. 


My card features the gorgeous Joyous Noel DSP, the Joyous Glimmer paper, the Merry Merlot and Copper reversible ribbon and the Snowflakes and Stars wire elements. These are all from the Joyous Noel suite which is my favorite in the catalogue. The sentiment however is from Snowflake Sentiments in the Annual catalogue.



Don't you love that Copper glimmer paper? I've used the Swirly Snowflake thinlits dies, also from the Annual catalogue to cut the snowflakes. Not sure whether you can also see it but I have decorated the envelope with matching paper. This Christmas I am determined to use as much of the paper as I can, even though it's hard cut such gorgeous paper.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and you see the rest of the team's creations by visiting  Claire Daly's blog. 

Have a great day

Heart of Christmas Week 1 2018






Welcome to the first week of the Art With Heart, Heart of Christmas Blog Hop for 2018. We hope that you enjoy hopping around and get some inspiration for your Christmas cards for this year.

I have to admit that this is my first ever time participating in a blog hop but hopefully the first of many!

For my first week I have chosen to focus on the Under The Mistletoe bundle from the Annual Catalogue. Hope you like it!


The benefit of this card is that if anything takes your fancy you can already order it rather than having to wait for the new Holiday catalogue to be released next month.
I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo but I have also embellished the berries with some of the red rhinestone basic jewels. Here is a closer look.




 As always if you are interested in purchasing any Stampin Up! products or would just like to know more about Stampin Up! then please contact me via my Facebook tab at the top of this page.
Enjoy the rest of the hop.

Mother's Day



Today I would like to share with you the card I shall be giving my Mother tomorrow for Mother's Day. I think it is fairly to safe to say that she won't be seeing it on either here or my Facebook page before I give it to her. You see she turned 96 just last week and although she is in very good health, computers and the like are now beyond her.
I have chosen to use the beautiful new Share What You Love Specialty DSP which is now available for you to order as part of one of our great bundles. If you want to know more why don't you click on the link and watch the following video.

Now for the card I have made.





For all the Mothers out there, I hope that you have a lovely day tomorrow. x
