AWH Blog Hop: Holiday Catalogue


Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 4th January 2016.  I decided to go with the Home For Christmas DSP as the basis for my card.  I love the retro images in the paper!

As you can see, I paired the DSP with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies.  The dies are a great way to add instant Christmas to any card.

Everyone loves a bit of 'shiny' when it comes to Christmas, so I die cut my bauble from the new Red Foil Sheets.  It's so pretty - and I love how easy the intricate bauble is to cut using my Precision Plate in my Big Shot.

The holly leaves are stamped in Mint Macaroon that has been stamped off once.  I really like how it adds a subtle 'oomph' to the sentiment on the inside of the card.

The next blog in the hop belongs to my fellow South Australian, Kathryn Mangelsdorf.  She's bound to have some Holiday gorgeousness on her blog!
