Welcome to Week 9 of the Heart of Christmas Blog hop! Each week on a Monday up until the end of November the Art with Heart team will bring you some Christmas Inspiration to help you will getting ready for Christmas card making and writing, tag making, decorations, packaging and so much more! Make sure you join us each week for all the fun.

This week I have a quick stamp and a few die cuts for you to make a card, oh and of course I couldn't forget the embossing folder. I needed to do a quick card as I only started my card 2.5 hours before the blog hop went live.

So here goes.
For the base of the card I started with a thick Basic White card

To the base card I have added a layer of Basic White card which I have embossed with the Merry Melody 3D embossing folder. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of Basic White card so you could still see the music of the embossed card stock and using the words from the Hope and Peace stamp I stamped in Mossy Meadow the sentiment. I then used Soft Sea Foam to lay down the solid leaf and the darker outline leaf is stamped in Mossy Meadow. I really like the contrast in these 2 colours on the leaf. It doesn't matter either if you don't get them quit in the right spot to stamp.

I then just started to build the holly flourish of leaves over the stamped leaves. 2 small and 2 large of the outline leaves in Mossy Meadow and the little pine needles are in crumb cake. Of course my bling this week comes to you with the red glimmer paper cut out over my cherry cobbler stamped berries! All is topped off with the Gold and Vanilla satin Edges ribbon. 

If you have any questions or need the supplies for this quick card do not hesitate to contact me.

Great card Sharon, especially with your time constraints! I love the music embossing folder in the background

Cathy Proctor said...

That's a fantastic card, Sharon, to have been made just hours before the hop went live. I love the combination of greens you have used for your holly leaves and the red glimmer paper on the cherry cobbler stamped berries is a lovely touch of bling!

Tina said...

Wow, I never would have known that your threw this together so quickly! The card is gorgeous, and the layering is perfection.

CHRISTINE BLAIN said...

I'm super-impressed that you were able to construct such a beautiful card in a short amount of time, Sharon. You give me hope for Wednesday's blog hop, for myself! Great step-by-step instructions, showing how you made this beauty. It's just lovely.

Rosa Leyden said...

Sharon you have put together a fabulous card in a short time. The lovely greens look great along with the CC pine needles and the beautiful gold ribbon.

Carussell Crafts said...

Love, love, love it! Lots of white space, and the stamping, die cut leaves and embossing all work so beautifully together.

Such a lovely card Sharon especially with the proportion of white space. If you wouldn't have told us we wouldn't have known that it was created in such short time.

Andrea said...

Sharon, you are amazing. I love your holly card and then to have blogged the step by step process. Your layering of ink and die cuts is beautiful. I repeat, you are a special person and so amazing. xxx

Kate Morgan said...

Whoa, now that is not leaving much time to create and blog! I'm totally impressed and your card is not exactly basic. I love that you stamped some holly before adding die cut layers, and the embossed background is perfect!

Michele said...

I love it Sharon. You were cutting it fine but your card is the perfect example of just how fabulous Stampin' Up! products are. The coordination makes it so easy to create stunning cards, just like yours.
