And now, to my projects for this blog hop.
I am featuring the Power of Hope Bundle today.
The white layer in the background of my cards has been embossed using the Stone 3D Embossing folder from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue, then the top two layers have been die cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies, the middle layer in Pretty Peacock.
I have stamped the image onto some of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-Bration) and cut out the dress, before adhering to the stamped image on the white cardstock.
Here is the inside of my card:
And then I have made a second one in Melon Mambo and using the same Designer Series Paper.
The next demonstrator to share their Sale-a-bration inspiration with you is Sujatha Harding
I hope you enjoy hopping through all of the inspiration.

I think I could really do with spending some time in a Tropical Oasis after all that we have been through with the bushfires over the last few weeks, and undoubtedly difficult times still to come.
Instead, I have actually made a card!!
My card features products from the Tropical Oasis Suite by Stampin’ Up! from the new mini catalogue, and available until 2nd June 2020.
The background features a new Embossing Folder called Coastal Weave – I love this one, and a strip of the lovely bright Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.
The beautiful frangipanis (my favourite flower of all) are from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and dies, have been stamped and then lighted coloured using a blender pen.
I am going to pop my card up on the current Case This Sketch challenge.
Welcome back to the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.
This week I have combined the Detailed Bells Dies with the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. I love this paper, and it is so versatile, it doesn’t have to be used just for Christmas. But I have, I’ve made two Christmas cards with this combination.
Did you notice, there’s no stamping on these cards?
I have used the gorgeous Classic Weave Ribbon, instead of stamping.
To see all of the other Christmas inspiration, make sure you hop over the Judy’s blog where you can find links to everyone who is taking part.
You may have noticed that I have been missing in action for the past month.
I have been rather unwell and finding it difficult to craft and blog along with everything else I need to do in my life.
Today has been a pretty good day, although I am starting to feel like it’s time to rest, so I will keep my post short and sweet.
My card today features the Let it Snow Designer Series Paper, and all of the cute Christmas trees on my card have been cut from the DSP.
For the background I have used the Stylish Scroll embossing folder which was inked up before putting it through the Big Shot. And I have also used the versatile Ornate Frames Dies for the sentiment panel.
I hope to be back soon with some more creations but in the meantime, you can see all of the inspiration from today’s Heart of Christmas blog hop here.
Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing amazing projects featuring Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, most of which is in the current promotions where you can buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper and receive a pack for free! Only available until the 30th of September.
All three of my cards today, feature the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, and very little stamping.
The birds and flowers on my cards have all been cut from the DSP.
For my second card, I have used some of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP, and overlaid a piece of embossed Vellum, making the DSP more subtle. Again, the bird and flowers were cut from the Bird Ballad DSP.
And my third card is one I have shared before in a previous post, but I thought I would go nicely as a set with these two.
This is a masculine card which combines the fussy cut bird from the Bird Ballad DSP, with some of the woodgrain and music note DSP from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Don’t forget, the fantastic promotion is only available until the 30th September 2019.
For more information about the promotion, contact any of the ladies on the blog hop and we will be happy to help you.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely and talented, Vicki Boucher.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping,

Our new challenge at Cardz4Guyz is to create a project featuring Trees, Leaves or both of those.
It’s spring here in Australia, so the leaves are just starting to shoot on the trees, however, for my card, I have used some of the gorgeous Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.
I love the Autumn colours in this paper, and it’s fantastic for masculine cards.
I have also run the Vanilla panel through the Big Shot with the Woodland Embossing Folder, so there are some trees in there behind the leaves.
The leaves have all been fussy cut from the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.
And the sentiment is from the #Elfie stamp set.
Join us at Cardz4Guyz and share your projects, we love to see what you have been doing.
Another week of Christmas inspiration with Week 5 of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.
Eventually, I will surpise you with a non-traditional coloured Christmas card, but not this week…..
I have used some of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper for my card, and have coloured part of it using a Blender pen.
I have only coloured the part that is inside the frame, made using the Heirloom Frames Dies and Embossing Folders, using the same colours as the DSP, Garden Green and Real Red, with a touch of Soft Suede for the branches.
I have also used Stampin’ Write markers to colour the finer areas rather than the Blender Pen, which I have used on the larger areas.
The sentiment comes from the #Elfie stamp set which has been die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies….. perfect fit!!
And a very small piece of the Real Red Curly Ribbon to finish off, which has been knotted in the centre and the ends frayed.
Tammy is joining us again this week with another of her gorgeous cards, this time a great fancy fold card featuring the Jolly Seasons Dies.
I love Santa with his reindeer, such a great die.
Did you notice Rudolf, with his red nose?
Thanks for sharing again, Tammy. Gorgeous card!!
If you would like to see what the rest of the Heart of Christmas team did for this week’s hop, you can find all the names on Claire’s blog here.
