In Good Taste for Forever Flourishing

I love the classic colours of blues and whites and this card in no exception. I also added some gold for added bling, sparkle and texture!

Embossing the card base and the navy die cut, brings more interest to the card, along with the wood element and tiny Butterfly Gems.

On the inside I placed some more strips of patterned paper, flipping one over to see the wood design for added texture. The banner was created using the Tailored Tag Punch.

Colour Creation Showcase: Cinnamon Cider in Nature

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cinnamon Cider!

This new brown tone is a rich and slightly more rusty colour than the other browns, but you will see how warm it is with the right colour combination.

Colour Combination - CC PP VV

Paired with Petal Pink, it certainly adds a feminine touch, along with the addition of some Scalloped Lace Trim.

The Saddle Brown Stazon Ink coordinates beautifully with Cinnamon Cider. The 6″ x 6″ 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper is the perfect background with this stamp set.

My Aug-Dec Mini catalogue favourite products

If you haven’t seen the catalogue yet, click the image to download your own PDF copy!

Some of my favourite products are:

Dove of Hope Bundle  – I think this one is a great bundle for our current COVID situation to give hope to all. We are currently in Stage 4 lock-down in Melbourne, we have a curfew of not being out after 8pm and only allowed out to exercise for 1 hour per day. So this bundle gave me comfort and I will be using it heaps.

Fancy Fold Christmas card and the New Aug-Dec Mini catalogue is now live!

Today is the day for the new 2020 August-December Mini catalogue becoming available and you can now grab all those amazing Christmas products! Click the image to download a PDF copy of the catalogue.

2020_AUGDEC_FRONT_COVER

My card today is a fancy fold design using the Trimming the Town Designer Paper and the Dove of Hope Bundle.

Dove of Hope Bundle

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Place the Old Olive card in the Trimmer with the 13cm side at the top and score at 2.5cm. Fold this over and burnish with a bone folder. This creates the top of the card.

For the inside of the card, take the Whisper white card and glue the 2 pieces of Designer Paper to each side, then glue to the inside of the card base. Stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 i

For the front of the card, place the Poppy Parade piece on the inside in the centre and line it up with the bottom of the card. Holding it carefully in place, add some glue to the top only and fold down the Old Olive flap. Now you can add the Designer Paper (I sponged the edges with Poppy Parade ink).

Trimming the Town DSP

Die cut the pieces of the dove in Whisper White card and glue a small section so the filigree part of the wings sits up a little and is not glued down. Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card. On a small piece of white card, stamp the bauble in Versamark ink, add White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Colour the bauble with Water Painters and ink pads before cutting it out with scissors and gluing it to the card.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 c

Add 3 small rhinestones to the bauble and tie some white ribbon around the top flap and tie in a bow. I placed a glue dot behind the bow to hold it in place.

Measurements:
Old Olive card base – 14.8cm x 13cm
Whisper White card (inside) – 14.3cm x 10cm
Designer Paper (inside) – 10cm x 2.5cm (2 pieces)
Poppy Parade card – 10.3cm x 9.5cm
Designer Paper (front) – 9cm x 7.2cm

Cherish the Season in 2020

Oh how I love these Christmas bells!!! The Cherish the Season Bundle includes the Cherish the Season stamp set and coordinating Sounds of the Season dies. Purchase as a bundle saves you 10%.

My background paper is from the 2020-2022 In Colour 6×6 paper pack with a white Stitched Rectangle die cut placed in the centre. The bells are two different sizes; the centre one is slightly larger than the other two. Once these were die cut, I added a little bit of Adhesive sheet to the back to place the holly and berries.

Cherish the Season Christmas Bells Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

I cut the bells again in Just Jade card and Magenta Madness card, so I could remove the holly and berries and glue them into the silver foil bells. The two smaller bells are adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue and the larger centre bell is adhered to the card with dimensionsls

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool, before fussy cutting and adding it with Mini Dimensionals. Three bows are tied in Misty Moonlight Ribbon and adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue. To finish off I added a few Blue Gems, which are stunning!

What do you think of this design? I love it and you will see a similar card on page 73 of the new catalogue where I cased this idea from!

Colour Creations Showcase – Cherry Cobbler

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cherry Cobbler!

I am using the Prized Peony Bundle for this card, with the Dainty Diamonds and Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folders for beautiful textural interest.

A classic colour combination often used for Christmas, but also works with anything floral related.

CCS Cherry Cobbler, Prized Peony Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Just look at the texture from those embossing folders in the background and on the leaves, and the gold heat embossing on the petals for gorgeous shine!!!! The addition of the scalloped lace trim adds a touch of softness.

Peony Peek-a-boo card

Today I have created a fancy fold card using the Prized Peony Suite. These stunningly soft colour tones are so feminine and appealing to the eye, especially with the vellum square doilies for added texture.

I coloured the blooms with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Petal Pink and Old Olive.

3D Waves for a Whale of a Time

Having lived in Warrnambool many years ago, I have fond memories of heading out to Logan’s beach to see the whales between May – September each year. There is now a much bigger and better viewing platform as it has become quite a tourist destination.

So my card today was inspired from my childhood memories.

Whale Waves card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The designer paper pack has this full page of waves, but I cut along two lots of the waves to give me a 3D effect and for the whales to look like they are actually in the water. Placing dimensionals or foam adhesive sheets behind the layers, helps create this.

Whale Waves card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020.

These whales were punched with the Whale Builder Punch from another sheet of the designer paper. I love how the punches can cut out images directly from the paper!

The only stamping was the fish and I haven’t added a sentiment, as I am waiting for the right occasion before doing that!

Colour Creations Showcase – Calypso Coral

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Calypso Coral!

I love the Whale of a Time Bundle and on this card, I have teamed it up with the High Tide & Well Said stamp sets and the Well Written Dies!

I used the Rock n Roll technique to stamp the whale on whisper white card before cutting it out with the Whale builder punch. The other image were stamped on the Nested Stitched Label die cut and the whale added with dimensionals!

Calypso Coral CCS Card using Whale of a Time & High Tide stamps by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

To create the background, I used the “light beam” stamp from the High Tide stamp set and repeatedly stamped in different colours, cleaning the stamp quickly on the Simply Shammy between colours.

Whale Wobble card

I just love how quickly this card came together!

Predominantly using the patterned paper, this is the main feature of this card, with very little stamping. In fact, the only stamping is the sentiments, fish and a little bit on the anchor!

Whale Wobble card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Whale Builder punch was used to punch out the whale from a piece of the patterned paper and a wobble element was placed behind it to create the 3D effect. Click here to see the whale wobbling!

I also used the Smooth Sailing dies to cut some extra seaweed/plants to add to the scene and the Brass Foil anchor.

Decorating the inside with some more designer paper, seaweed die cuts and a sentiment completes the card!
