STAMPIN' UP! TRANQUIL TIDE CHRISTMAS CARD

While I had out all the supplies to make yesterday's card, I came up with another Tranquil Tide and white design, using the awesome Card Front Builder dies that will be available for you to purchase in a few short days (they're out 1st August).

This card is a bit sparklier in real life than I've captured in the photo, thanks to the trees cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Isn't the delicate framing of the sentiment and tree tops pretty?  I am loving these dies!




I've listed below all the products available to purchase from my online store.  Unfortunately I can't link to the Card Front Builder dies until they are available to purchase, but it's not long to wait!

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope I've inspired you to use these gorgeous new Christmas products, from next month.

THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS #9: STAMPIN' UP! CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS




I'm back, with a Christmas card made with Stampin' Up! products, after a couple of weeks' break.  I took a short holiday the first week, and have been grappling with all that goes along with selling a house the following week.  I am hopeful that this week is the week my house sells!

Claire Daly (who heads the Art With Heart team) has a list on her blog of all our team members who are sharing Christmas cards today.  We hope you visit all the blogs, and leave a bit of comment love. :)

This card is, I think, my favourite of all the Christmas cards I've made so far!  I decided to stick to a simple colour scheme, of Tranquil Tide and Whisper White, with just a touch of glimmer (and a small, sweet, deer).  The new Carols of Christmas stamp set, and Card Front Builder thinlits dies, made it super-easy to make this striking card.  Stampin' Up! demonstrators have been able to get our hands on these goodies this month, but they will be available for everyone to buy in August.




How sweet are the details die-cut from the Designer Series Paper?



To complement the Glimmer Paper scalloped circle, I added some liquid glue, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, to the die-cut trees along the bottom of the card:




I hope you like this card, and feel inspired to play with the Carols of Christmas bundle of products (if you buy the stamp set and dies together, you save 10%).  These products are available from 1st August, as an early release before the Holiday Catalogue comes out in September.  I can't yet link to these items in my online store, but everything else I've used is available; just click on one of the thumbnail images below, to go shopping!  After having my first play with these products this weekend, I absolutely love them.  Without too much effort, you can come up with gorgeous Christmas cards!  I'll be sharing a couple more in the days to come.

STAMPIN' UP! BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET WITH EMBOSSING PASTE BACKGROUND

I used Embossing Paste, and the brick patterned mask, from Stampin' Up! to create the background piece for my card today.

Normally I'd stick to two or three colours on a card, but I went a little overboard with this one!







Listed below are all the Stampin' Up! products used to make this card.  If you would like to buy them for yourself, clicking on one of the thumbnail images below will take you direct to my online store.  I hope this bright, happy, card puts a smile on your face.  I had a lot of fun making it!
