The Heart of Christmas - Week 2


Hi there

Welcome to week 2 of our new weekly inspiration all about Christmas, from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. This week I wanted to bring you a simple layout for a Christmas card that lends itself to mass production. Mass production means different things to each of us; it could be 5 or 50 or somewhere in between! I find it pretty hard not to tweak or change the design, so having a layout that accommodates that, makes it easier. This layout is perfect for combining different designer papers, greetings and embellishments.

Stampin' Up! Be Merry DSP & Merry Mistletoe - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

I picked up my box of new goodies from the post office today and broke open the new 'Be Merry' designer paper. It has a nice range of light and solid designs in Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and white and I've used two of the designs for the background of my card. I added the designer paper to a piece of Whisper White card stock as I think it makes it easier to position all the elements and wrap the ribbon around, before mounting the panel onto the thick Whisper White card base.

The lovely greeting is from the new 'Merry Misteltoe' stamp set, cropped with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the ribbon is the new silver Metallic-Edge. The reindeer from 'Santa's Sleigh' was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake card stock. I added some subtle highlights with Crumb Cake ink and a Blender pen and popped him up on dimensionals.


For the inside I have used another greeting from the 'Merry Mistletoe' stamp set and added a strip from the new Decorative Ribbon Border punch at the bottom, for a simple finish. I love that there is a greeting for the inside of the card too.


 All of the products used in this card are now available in my Online Store. Click on the product links below.

CASE-ing the Catty - Everyday Occasions


Hi there

Welcome to the new 2017-18 Annual Catalogue! I hope you are enjoying browsing the new products and samples as much as I am. There is so much to take in and I keep seeing new things I didn't notice the first or second time. This week the Crew are taking inspiration from the Everyday Occasions section of the catalogue, which is very extensive.

You may have come from visiting Julia's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.


I have chosen the sample above to CASE this week. I love the layout and the lovely background using the new 'Burlap' background stamp and the Garden Trellis embossing folder, which are in my first order, currently in transit. I decided to make a masculine card using the layout and products I already have, plus some of the new Eastern Palace Speciality Designer paper. I hope the end result qualifies as masculine, lol, as it is pretty bright!

Stampin' Up! Super Duper meets Eastern Palace for CASE-ing the Catty - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

My base card is Pacific Point and I've added a layer of Lemon Lime Twist that I have stamped with the cross-hatch stamp from the 'Best Birds' stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink. It adds interest without taking over, in the same way the Burlap backgrounds does in the sample. I have used two of the designs from the Eastern Palace Speciality DSP for my banners. To make them more robust, I adhered them to Very Vanilla card stock first, before cutting them with the Banner Triple punch. 


I have used the stamp set 'Super Duper' that carried over from the Occasions Catalogue, for my greeting. I'm glad it did carry over, as I haven't inked it up until now. It is stamped in Pacific Point with the smaller greeting in Lemon Lime Twist and then cropped with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. This closeup shows the background and the greeting more clearly and the silver metallic stars that I added for the finishing touch. 

Stampin' Up! Super Duper meets Eastern Palace for CASE-ing the Catty - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

For the inside, I have a Lemon Lime Twist mat and a small strip of the matching DSP at the bottom. I stamped the large greeting from the 'Super Duper' stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist on the writing panel and then again in Pacific Point on a separate piece. I fussy cut the 'super duper' banner and adhered it over the top of the stamped image.
