AWH Heart Of Christmas: Week 3

Heart of christmas blog hopBack with you again for our AWH Heart Of Christmas Week 3.  

Each Wednesday night we're bringing you a Christmas creation. 

Check the link at the bottom for projects from the rest of the crew.

I thought I'd give Cross Stitched Christmas stamp set a whirl this week.


Now the stamparatus is very handy for this card.  It helped me get the 3 layers of tree lined up nicely and I could try out a few colour variations while it was all set up. For my first attempt my two greens were a bit too alike so I tried again with this one using Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce with Poppy Parade for the highlights.  The beauty of the stamparatus is that once you've gotten the reading glasses out and done the work of getting it lined up nicely, you can do a bunch of cards before you pop it back in its case.

The gorgeous DSP is All Is Bright with some really lovely designs.  The Holiday Catalogue goes live on September 5th if you've got your eye on these or other products. 


I liked the greeting from this set.  Stamped in Poppy Parade and some red rhinestones to finish. 

I've used the Stitched Seasons framelits again to cut out the tree panel.  Don't forget we're on the very last days for this one.  Once Friday is over and August is done - you won't be able to order this anymore. 

Keen for some more festive inspiration.  Head on over to Claire Daly's blog for the full list and links to this week's Heart of Christmas crew.  Claire Daly's Blog Post

Happy stamping!

Lovely card, Sue. Great to see how realistic the Cross Stitched Christmas set is.

Wow Sue, great card! It looks like real cross-stitching on the tree and such a lovely dsp choice for your background.

Kate Morgan

Oh wow, that stamp set looks amazing, so clear and precise. It really does look like a hand stitched card!

Claire Daly

Goodness me Sue, the layers on that tree are lined up so perfectly! Looks great. Snap on the choice of background DSP this week! Thanks for participating in week 3 of Heart of Christmas.

Sue your tree looks so realistic like it has actually been stitched! And those 2 greens look amazing together.
