Today I am joining with some other Stampin' Up! demonstrators, in Claire Daly's Art With Heart team, to share Christmas creations made with Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous products.

I am thrilled to now be in possession of a whole lot of new goodies, that I was able to pre-order ahead of the Holiday Catalogue release on 1st September.  My shares today are very simple designs, all about the metallics.  There is a gorgeous suite of products, called Year of Cheer, in the upcoming catalogue, incorporating copper, champagne, gold and silver elements.  Stunning!

Here's the design I have chosen as one that will be easy to make multiples of.  The design on the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so lush ... not much more is needed!

Here's a close-up, that better shows the copper-embossed sentiment, which is from a new stamp set called Every Good Wish:

The scalloped circle peeking out from behind the sentiment circle is (despite looking rather silver!) the new Champagne Foil sheet.  It is beautiful, and perfectly complements the champagne-coloured berries on the Designer Series Paper.  I have laid two strips of copper washi tape across the card, before adhering the circular elements.

While I had these supplies out, I made a slight variation of the above design.  I used different washi tape from the Year of Cheer Designer Washi assortment ... this one has a bit of a holographic look, with copper, silver, gold and champagne in the patterns.  I worked some Copper trim out into a webbed look ... I was going for a stylised representation of holly, with rhinestones as berries.

.... and a close-up of the ribbon treatment:

We'd love for you to visit all the blogs in this week's Heart of Christmas share, and we welcome your comments!  Hopefully you'll come away with lots of inspiration for your own Christmas cards.  You will find a comprehensive list of everyone taking part, on Claire's blog.

I can't yet link, to my online store, to the newest products (you'll be able to order them from 1st September), but I have listed below the current Stampin' Up! products used on my cards.
