Heart of Christmas 2022 - Week 17

Hi fellow stampers! Welcome everyone to Week 17 of the Heart of Christmas blog hop. I’m hopping along with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators on the Art With Heart team to showcase some wonderful Christmas projects every week until the end of November. That’s another 5 weeks to go!

This weeks featured stamp set is found in the Window Wishes bundle. The matching dies to the miniature houses and evergreen trees are adorable and help create lovely village scenes.

To my Sahara Sand card base I adhered a layer from the Host Celebrate Everything DSP pack. The bright and bold papers can be used for just about any occasion including Christmas. Next I die cut a rectangle layer using the Deckled Rectangles die set and embossed this with the Whimsical Trees EF.

The die cut houses are built using two pieces - the roof and the building, so that you can mix and match any colours to suit your design. I have stamped the roof using Shaded Spruce ink on Sahara Sand card stock and also stamped the buildings in VersaMark and heat embossed with White embossing powder.

The various fir trees were die cut from Evening Evergreen Glimmer specialty paper and adhered with dimensionals together with the houses. The sentiment is stamped with Shaded Spruce ink and die cut using a Fabulous Frames die.

The sentiment inside the card is from the Brightest Glow stamp set and stamped using Shaded Spruce ink onto Basic White card stock. This was die cut with a Deckled Rectangle die. I adhered the rectangle to a DSP layer and the card base.

Please head on to the next participant for more Christmas inspiration, our very generous and talented hostess Sharon Davern.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead everyone!


  1. Oh, Rosa, I love this to bits! Your colour choices, the background paper, those adorable little houses, and the glimmery trees ... so many gorgeous elements on your card. Beautiful job. x

  2. This card is SO adorable Rosa!! Like Christine said, all those lovely elements work so well together! I hadn’t even noticed that pattern in the DSP, and it is such a lovely base for your design!

  3. This card is just lovely Rosa. I love your little snowy village scene with its embossed trees background and gorgeous glimmer trees. The inside is just as gorgeous as the front of the card. Caroline.

  4. Oh Rosa, you have created a delightful village scene on your card. I love your choice of colours, the embossed background, the embossed little houses and gorgeous glimmer trees. All so beautiful. Your card inner is delightful too. Xxx

  5. Rosa I love everything about your card......your choice of patterned paper, the Sahara Sand card base and embossed panel, the sparkly trees and your gorgeous white embossed houses. And I love that the inside of your card is so perfect too.

  6. Such a lovely card Rosa. Embossing the Sahara Sand background has added a lovely dimension and those trees cut from the glimmer paper are great idea.

  7. What a magical scene you have created, Rosa. Those little houses are beautiful against the dry embossed background and the snow slope. The glimmer trees are fabulous and that background DSP is stunning!

  8. Oh I love this so much I can't stop looking at it! Love the little scene you have created! Love the colour choice and the embossing and the houses and the DSP! Love all there is about it! Perfect! Stunning card!
