AWH Christmas Blog Hop


Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls have created some amazing Christmas projects to inspire you with the theme, It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have tags, gift bags, teacher gift ideas, decorations and many more fun projects to create this holiday season.

I have decided to use Merry Mice for my projects. It's my absolute favourite set out of the Holiday Catalogue, and it's also been a favourite among my customers - especially as it's currently 25% off in the Stitched From The Heart promotion. It's a ripper bargain for just $22.50!

I stamped the singing mouse on Shimmery White cardstock and coloured him using Dapper Denim, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party.

I love the subtle little scalloped border the Layering Circles Thinlits provide. In this case, a cute touch of Real Red that doesn't overwhelm the rest of the card.

I love the cute little star stamps in this set. They give a nice finishing touch to your card.

I had a bit of extra time up my sleeve and some extra stamped images, so I decided to make a set of tags using the Merry Mice. I masked the little mice so that I could stamp them as individual images. My Stitched Shapes Framelits finally arrived, so I kind of went a little nuts with them!

I hope you've been inspired by my Merry Mice projects, but now you're off to be dazzled by the lovely Kathryn Mangelsdorf.

Bye for now,
