Heart of Christmas: Santa’s Workshop

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a couple of quick Christmas card ideas using the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper. You need to check this out, because if you look closely, can you see the flocking? It is on the snowflakes and looks quite velvety, so pretty!

You can see it better here

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop Santas Workshop SDSP Holiday Catalogue 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia.

The sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set with coordinating Dies to cut them out instead of fussy cutting with scissors. You’ve got to love that!!!!

On the inside I cut the sign post from a sheet of the paper.

This next card also uses the same products, but I embossed over the Designer Paper with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this lady image (also cut from the paper) she reminds me of a grandma who loves baking Christmas cookies!!!

For her to stand out a bit more from the background papers, I added a piece of Vellum cut with the Starburst Punch. Look at that flocking on her apron!!!

I placed this little elf on the inside. He reminds me of a little kid running inside to the smell of the cookies baking, yummy!!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Gorgeous Grape!!!

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

Colour Creations Blog Hop Gorgeous Grape Jar of Love Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Heart of Christmas: Simply Elegant

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing another card focusing heavily on this stunning Joyous Noel Designer paper and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer.

I was inspired by a card created by Amy Koenders and it really caught my eye. I used the same piece of DSP (because it is my favourite!) but I changed up the top section and the card base.

Joyous Noel DSP & Glimmer handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Holiday catalogue 2018

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamp set and the Classic Label punch to cut it out.

Here’s the inside using another strip of this DSP, Glimmer strip and another glimmer sprig!

This reversible Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon is so soft and stunning and I love it! How pretty does that bow look?!!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Garden Green!!!

I think this Designer Paper is so pretty and lifelike, that I didn’t want to cover it up too much and let it be the hero of this card. I did add a strip of Gold Glimmer and a piece of Cherry Cobbler that has the Stitched Labels framelits die (those little crosses) down one side.

Those berries are the basic pearls coloured with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. The spigs have Wink of Stella on them for that gorgeous glimmer and the Starburst punch is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Merry was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

On the inside, I’ve added two strips; one of DSP and some gold glimmer.

Heart of Christmas: All is Bright this Christmas

Today’s card is simple and easy to create multiples of, in a short space of time. Cutting a strip of the All is Bright Designer series paper, layering it on some Gold Foil and gluing it to a card, it’s that simple!

Merry Christmas to All & All is Bright DSP handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Holiday catalogue 2018.

I also stamped the sentiment in one colour and added some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

This took me all of about 5 minutes to make and if you are time poor leading up to this festive season, it could be the answer for you too!

I’m pretty much just using Fresh Fig and Whisper White today, although I did add a hint of other colours with the Artisan Pearl Embellishments. Oh and check out the champagne foil background!!! I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and look what it created… doesn’t it look like Champagne rain? So pretty!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a cute paper angel that I have made using the Dashing Along designer series paper.

Isn’t she cute?!

These would look amazing hanging on the Christmas tree or even hanging from a bottle of Champagne to give as a gift to someone this festive season!

Colour Creations: Flirty Flamingo

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Flirty Flamingo!!!

I have seen lots of people using the Buffalo Check stamp and adding some lines to look like Plaid and I had to give it a go. How good does it look?!!! Just reminds me of a check shirt and it’s perfect with these trees!

Colour Creations Blog Hop using Flirty Flamingo, Buffalo Check & Rooted in Nature by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up, Australia..JPG

By using the Stamparatus to ink the stamps, if you don’t get a good coverage the first time or you want a darker colour, you can re-ink and stamp again as many times as required. I did this multiple times with the Buffalo Check stamp and twice with the sentiment. Once I got the right colour with the Buffalo Check, I used a ruler and the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker to rule some lines to look more like Plaid. Using both the thick end down the centre of each white strip of the check and then the thin end of the marker across the check pattern. Can you see that?

The trees are inked and stamped a couple of times before re-inking and stamping again to get that depth of a forest.

The iridescent sequins are the perfect colour tones to coordinate with my colour palette. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to add them to my card. It is such a cool new tool and saves so much time! I also added some Wink of Stella to the trees for extra glisten!

The copper trim added some darker interest between the image and the plaid and the bow helps to soften it and add a feminine touch.

Blog Hop: My favourite products in the Holiday catalogue!

September blog hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from June Kempster. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I am using some of my favourite products from this catalogue; Dashing Deer Bundle and the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with its stunning copper foil accents. I also love the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in 6″ x 6″ and in 3 colours; Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide. I have used 2 of these in my projects today!

My first project is a card using Gray Granite as the base. I would never think to use this colour for Christmas, but in fact, it looks amazing and it is one of the colours in the DSP.

Check out the inside of this card though! I have made a banner at the top with some more of this gorgeous Designer Paper by scoring it in the centre and 1″ either side so it folds in to the card with a metal snowflake embellishment hanging from it with copper metallic thread.

My next project is a small gift box that I cased from Pootles in the UK. This stunning reversible ribbon is featured again wrapped around it, tied in a bow, to hold the box closed. This box measures 3¾” high x 3” wide x 1½” deep. You could fit lots of little Christmas chocolates inside, yummy!

I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide Sprigs from the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and added the copper star embellishment with some copper metallic thread hanging down the front.

Heart of Christmas: Dashing Along Reindeer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am using the Dashing Along DSP which can be earned for FREE with a qualifying order. Ask me how!

This paper pack coordinates beautifully with the Dashing Deer Bundle. I have some very simple cards using these products to share tonight. This is a great way to use up some of your left over pieces of Designer paper and to show off all the different designs in the pack!

Dashing Along with Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia, Holiday 2018

First, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark using the Stamparatus then added some Silver Embosing powder and heat set it. Next, I cut 1/2″ strips of Designer paper and glued them to the front of the card, offsetting them slightly. The reindeer is die cut in Silver Glimmer paper and added with dimensionals.

Here is the same card but in Cherry Cobbler!

Dashing Along with Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Holiday 2018.

Did you notice that the reindeer is facing the other way too? Well, I found it was better to place the die on the back of the glimmer paper rather than the glitter side, as it cuts so much easier!

Which one do you like best, the Red or the Green card?
