AWH September Blog Hop: Holiday Catalogue

September blog hop banner

I'm very excited to be joining in our team's monthly blog hop this month. It has been on my list for a while and I finally got organised to join the fun.

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.


My card tonight features the Winter Woods bundle.  I've stamped the tree twice in Shaded Spruce ink.  There are two framelits to cut it out with.  One does the outline and another one you can layer over the top.  It has some branch parts that you can lift with a bone folder (or fingernail) to give a little more texture.  I glued the top tree onto the bottom with glue dots after curling the lift up parts. 


The card base is Whisper White thick, the trims are Shaded Spruce and I've used some of the All Is Bright DSP.  Some red rhinestones to finish it off.  The greeting is cut with the Bunch Of Banners framelits.  One of the framelits cuts that banner and also cuts a frame for it.  Nifty.


I quite like this slightly 3D tree and look forward to using it again soon at the craft desk.  Thanks for stopping by. 

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, our talented team leader,  Claire Daly

Just lovely Sue! That tree really jumps out at me. The baubles and the 3D effect add real wow.

I love the 3D effect on the tree. A great WOW card with not a lot of effort. Thanks for taking part in the holiday catalogue blog hop.

Sue, what a gorgeous card! I'm so glad to see that pattern from the All is Bright DSP as I wasn't sure how to use it myself on a project, and it looks fantastic here with your design!

Sharon Davern

Great 3D effect on your tree and I love how you used the DSP to mirror the red rhinestones on the tree. Lovely card!

Catherine Proctor
