Welcome to this week's Heart of Christmas.
This week I really wanted to use the cute bear stamp from the Happiest of Happy stamp set, which is part of the Happy Forest Friends product suite on pages 46-47 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I had in mind that the paper contained a sheet with pine trees on it and I thought I could easily convert it to a Christmas card.
Turns out there is no pine tree image in that paper pack. The whimsical trees from the Trees For Sale stamp set suited the style, so I decided to stamp some instead.
To tie it in with the Christmas theme, I pulled out and sorted through the Santa Express Memories & More card pack to find some backgrounds and sentiments.
I found the cute bow die-cut in the Santa’s Train die set from our July to December mini catalogue. I cut three of them in Poppy Parade card to match the red in the Memories & More cards.
I really like the way the bear stamped in the Soft Suede ink - it's a beautiful watercoloury effect with a crisp outline.
These are very, very simple cards. But I think they are a bit fun and whimsical and would make great cards to send to some favourite nieces and nephews.
