The Heart of Christmas - Week 13


Hi there

Welcome to week 13 of Christmas inspiration from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. This week I had my first play with products from the Quilted Christmas Suite, available in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.  I enjoyed patchwork and quilting in a past life (the one before I got hooked on papercraft with Stampin' Up!, lol), so I have used one of my favourite quilts as a prop. It has the same star at the centre and colours similiar to the Real Red and Pool Party in my card. I'm sure I will go back to it at some point as I still have many boxes of fabric stashed away.

Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs

My base card is thick Whisper White and I added the stitched holly design from the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" designer paper stack. My embellishment begins with 4 stitched squares in Real Red and Pool Party on a Whisper White base. The next layer is a silver Foil Snowflake which is the perfect size for the stitched squares. I created the quilted star with the Quilt Builder Framelits. It includes a die for the solid shape and for the outline, plus another that creates the stitching around the parallelograms in the star, allowing you to create a range of different effects. To finish my star I added a small Whisper White stitched circle in the centre, topped with a smaller Real Red circle and a popped up heart in Silver Glimmer.

The Stitched Shapes Framelits complement the Quilted Christmas bundle really well. I have stamped the greeting from the 'Hearts Come Home' stamp set and cropped it with a stitched oval to continue the theme. It is popped up on a flagged banner and trimmed with a silver bow. You can see the details in this closeup.


My card is slightly larger than normal, so I have used both Real Red and Pool Party to border my writing panel. I have stamped the stitched star from the 'Christmas Quilt' stamp set in Pool Party and then the greeting from 'Season Like Christmas' over the top. The font in this greeting is very similiar to the 'home' in the greeting on the front of the card.  To finish, I have added a strip of (retired) washi at the base of the greeting panel.

Finally, here is a view from the top.
