The Heart of Christmas - Week 7




Welcome to Week 7 of sharing our Heart of Christmas inspiration from Claire's Art With Heart Team Australia.
How quickly is this year flying by?!
It will be Christmas before we know it!

For this weeks card I decided to use the same background stamp as I did on last weeks card.
(Click here if you missed seeing it.)
I have stamped all of the images with Whisper White pigment ink onto Night of Navy cardstock. I love this effect and I think it would look great stamped onto any of our darker colours.


'Lovely as a Tree' with presents all around - another quick and easy card to put together.

As soon as I saw the Gingham Ribbon in the new Annual Catalogue I just had to have it! Isn't it fabulous?! It's also available in Smokey Slate. See page 198 in the catalogue. I think it gives a great country look to the design, especially teamed with our Layering Ovals Framelits. The greeting is from 'Santa's Sleigh', as is the verse inside the card, pictured below. I inked up the tree with Night of Navy and stamped off 3 times to get the final lighter shade and then the wording is full strength. Oops!, I almost forgot to mention, the curly cues on either side of the card front greeting are from 'Eastern Beauty' stamp set. And the Christmas baubles are our Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

The lovely and talented Judy May has a list of our equally lovely and talented team members who are sharing their Christmas projects with us this week. Click here for Judy's blog.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great week everyone!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting! 😊
