Hearts Come Home Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

I am sharing this beautiful snowy Christmas scene with you today made using the Hearts Come Home Bundle in the new Autumn/Winter seasonal catalogue.

This week at the Global Design Project we are casing the super talented, hugely funny and well just simply huge hearted Brian King, a fellow demo based in the US.  Brian works full time but still manages to have a very successful Stampin Up business whilst making the most adorable cards, pop over to his blog to see more of his work….

Hearts Come Home Bundle

These dies are to die for, seriously there are so many possibilities with the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies but when paired with the coordinating stamp set Hearts Come Home it takes it to another level.

I have completely fallen in love with the mixed fonts used and the little houses and santa on his sleigh, just stunning!

I am using this bundle in my upcoming October technique class and have 3 very different cards to create using this one bundle.  Pop to this sneak peek in the class post to see more ideas.

How I created this card
  • I cut the buildings in whisper white using the precision base plate as there are lots of intricate cut outs and if you want them to pop out easy then I’d definitely recommend the precision base place.
  • I embossed the card front with the softly falling embossing folder.
  • The mat for the front of the card measures 11.5 x 8.5cm (silver glimmer paper) the whisper white layer is 8 x 11cm.
  • Line up your die cuts to that they are overlapping but not cutting out too much detail and then trim to 8x11cm
  • Stamp your chosen sentiment in the white space at the base of the card.
  • Add tiny dimensionals to layer the die cuts to give them dimension and add a sparkly heart.

I allowed the church spire to overlap the top of the card but be sure to check the card will fit an envelope otherwise you could trim it down a little.

Here is the card of Brian’s that we are casing this week, why not join us this week and share your entry over at the Global Design Project?  Let’s go and see what the other design team members have made using Brian’s card as inspiration…

Hearts Come Home Christmas Card

I have a Christmas card to share today using my favourite stamp set called Hearts Come Home.

I simply adore the contemporary font and images in this set and it is set to become your favourite too!

Hearts Come Home from Stampin Up

The tree’s are from the Season Like Christmas stamp set and stamped onto whisper white cardstock in black ink.

I then created a Northern Lights technique for the nights sky which was inspired by my good friend and fellow demonstrator Georgia Giguere, she has a blog post and video here on how to create the Northern Lights Technique.

You may be wondering how I created the silver foil scallop border?  I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and simply tucked the more decorative part behind the card so as to only reveal the smaller smaller edge.

I am emailing the instructions on how to make this card to all my newsletter subscribers tomorrow, so be sure that you have signed up to receive my newsletter by clicking this button (on the right sidebar or image below) and filling out the contact form (customers only based in the UK please, no demonstrators).Newsletter sign up with Michelle LastAll the items I used to make this card are shared below and if you wish to purchase any items simply click any of the images below to go direct to that item in my Stampin’ Up! shop.  Don’t forget to use the monthly hostess code to receive a free thank you gift when ordering with me.

Hearts Come Home Christmas Card

I am sharing one of the first Christmas Cards I’ve made.  I have used the ever so gorgeous Hearts Come Home Stamp set and matching Hometown Greetings Edgelits from Stampin Up for the sketch challenge with the Global Design Project.

Hearts Come Home from Stampin' Up!

You are absolutely going to love this bundle including the dies as there are so many house/building combo’s and limitless possibilities.

I wanted to go bright and cheery and had a blast using lots of colour, ink, ribbon and paper.  I still had my sewing machine out from last weeks card so I added some stitching too!

The trees are from the Card Front Builder Thinlits and add some height to the background.  I did ink the trees with the Old Olive Ink and a sponge brayer to add a little texture and the greeting is heat embossed in white.

Global Design Project #GDP106

I added lots of texture and dimension using ribbon, stitching, patterned paper and dimensionals.

We would love to see what you can make using this sketch challenge and enter your projects to be in with a chance of being selected as one of the 3 winners!

Let’s go over to the Global Design Project Website and see what the other design team members have made using the same sketch.
