Welcome to week 7 of Christmas inspiration from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. This week I'm using one of my other favourite colour combinations - blues with silver. I had a little play with the new 'Carols of Christmas' stamp set and coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits (that's a bit of a mouthful, lol). This bundle will be available to purchase from 1 August, which is a month in advance of the release of the Holiday Catalogue, just so you can get a head start on your holiday cards. If you join this month as a Demonstrator you will get the 'Carols of Christmas' stamp set in your starter kit as an extra bonus on top of lots of other extra goodies - such a fabulous time to join! Contact me if you are interested in becoming a member of my team.
Now, back to the card. There are so many possibilities with this new bundle, but I wanted to keep it simple. I have inked up the lovely 'peace on earth' greeting in Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Dapper Denim and die cut it with the largest of the Stitched Shapes square to make it the focus of my card.
The background of the art piece is Dapper Denim and I've silver embossed a starry sky using the stamp from the 'Christmas Pines' set. There is a stamp with stars in the 'Carols of Christmas' set, but it looked a bit busy for what I wanted. The trees and deer are just a few of the many dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits set - so much yet to try out. I popped up the two trees in front with the deer behind. The single tree is flat and I popped up the deer in front. The panel has a mat of Silver foil for a bit more bling and the whole panel is popped up on the Bermuda Bay card base.
For the inside, I have Dapper Denim mat and I've stamped the lovely greeting from the 'Merry Mistletoe' stamp set in the centre in Bermuda Bay ink. The swag underneath is silver embossed for keep the bling factor going! At the bottom I have some Bermuda Bay stripes, topped with the cute Dapper Denim spotted washi from the Basics Pack 3 washi set. Wondering where the Bermuda Bay striped DSP came from? I stamped a panel using the 'Diagonal Stripe' background stamp and then cut off a strip. This will be my go-to option from now on, when I need some stripes.
Finally, here is a view from the top.
