Tonight I am taking part in a monthly Heart of Christmas showcase, co-ordinated by Judy May.  My friends and I hope to inspire you to use Stampin' Up! products for your Christmas projects.  

The colours I chose to use on my Christmas card were taken from Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper - some of my favourite paper this festive season, and it's on sale until the end of October.

My card features some new products, that are coming out next month.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I was able to purchase them in advance of general release ... and they're lovely!  The Curvy Christmas stamp set was used to stamp the row of small trees, in Mossy Meadow ink on Pear Pizzazz card.  I used Pear Pizzazz ink to fill space below the trees with the dotty stamp (that is probably meant to be snow, but that doesn't generally apply to us in the Southern Hemisphere at Christmas).  The sentiment is also from this stamp set.  I stamped it in Versamark ink, on some of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper, sprinkled white embossing powder over the ink, and heat embossed it with my heat tool.

I have used one of the new Curvy Dies (also out next month) to cut the decorative edge on the Pear Pizzazz card panel.  This piece has also been embossed using the beautiful Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.

Here's a closer look at the embossed background, and the lone die-cut tree that was created using the In the Pines bundle.  On a scrap of Pear Pizzazz card, I stamped the tree outline in Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped the "fill in" foliage in Pear Pizzazz ink.

Listed below are the current products I used to create this card.  The Curvy Christmas stamp set and Curvy Dies are not available to purchase until 3rd November, but if you would like to shop with me for any of the other products I've used, you can get to my online store by clicking on any of the thumbnail images below.  NB:  My store is for Australian residents only.

  7. Christine I adore all the detail in your lovely card. I really love the way you have combined the tree from the In the Pines bundle and the Evergreen Forest embossing folder with the new 'curvy' products to create so much texture and interest.
