Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalogue Art With Heart Team Blog Hop Week 4

Hello and welcome,

I'm so excited to be back with the Heart of Christmas blog hop for week 4 and we will be sharing products from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

This week's card is all about Melon Mambo and Gold, using the Perfectly Plaid Bundle which comes with the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Coordinating Pine Tree Punch. I just love pink and gold together it just gives you that pop of fun when creating a Christmas card.

I've used the Pigment Sprinkles in Melon Mambo and the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I've used this technique before when I created the Daisy Lane card in the same colours a few weeks ago. I've spritzed water onto a piece of Watercolor Paper, adding a few sprinkles of the Pigment Sprinkles and blending ink with the Aqua Painter. Dry it with the Heat Tool and add a few more Pigment Sprinkles.

I've used one of the tree stamps from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, stamped in Versamark Ink, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Punch out three Christmas trees with the Pine Tree Punch and place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back on the tree.

Using a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock I've spritzed water and add a little of the Melon Mambo Pigment Sprinkles onto a Clear Block. Then with a Aqua Painter lightly brush the colour onto the Cardstock and I also added a few splatter effects with the Painter too.

I've only used part of the greeting for the sentiment by covering up the words that I didn't want to use with a posted note, ink up with Versamark Ink and remove posted note before stamping onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Sprinkle Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

The card base is Melon Mambo Cardstock, layered with a sheet of Gold Foil, add the inked up Shimmery White Cardstock, place the three trees and snipped out greeting.

  1. Beautiful Vicki! Love the different colour scheme in this one. You have showcased the pigment sprinkles beautifully. Thanks for playing along in week 4 of Heart of Christmas.

  2. What a cool colour combo for Christmas, Vicki! I must be brave and dust off the pigment sprinkles!

  3. I adore the effect of the pigment powder but am way too scared to use it. Your card with the gorgeous alternative Christmas colour scheme is stunning Vicki.
