Under the Mistletoe this Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card that is so easy to create. It’s just cutting some strips of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and gluing them to the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiments in Shaded Spruce using the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and used the coordinating framelits to cut it out and sponged around the edges, before adding it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I also used the 1/2″ circle punch to take a tiny bit from the centre spine of the card to thread through some red ribbon and tie it in a bow at the front. I added some Sprigs of Mistletoe punched from some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper pack for some added sparkle!

Dashing Deer meets Delicate Lace for a bright Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card using the Dashing Deer framelits and the Delicate Lace edgelits with some Designer Series Paper and gold!

I cut and folded my Poppy Parade card base and used the Delicate Lace edgelit along the side. This then helped determine the size and placement of the banners.

The Starburst punch was used to cut some Garden Green card which was the embossed using the Big Shot and the Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This was added with dimensionals and the Gold Foil reindeer added last.

A 1″ strip of DSP was added to the inside of the card, behind that gorgeous lace border.

Christmas Wreath Punch Art

Today, I am sharing a Christmas wreath card created using the Sprig Punch!

This punch is in the Holiday catalogue and has been super popular, so I’m crossing my fingers it may roll over into the next Annual catalogue.

I have a Thick Whisper White card base with a layer of Garden Green card and some DSP from the Santa’s Workshop DSP pack. I punched about 20 sprigs in Garden Green card and began layering them in a circle shape and building it up until it looked reasonably full.  I added a few Poppy Parade berries using the 1/8″ handheld circle and adhered them with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green on Poppy Parade card and die cut and added with dimensionals. The bow was some of the Tea Room ribbon combo pack from the Annual catalogue. The HAPPY was die cut in Gold Glimmer and added with Tombo glue. Doesn’t it look pretty across the wreath?!!!

Christmas made easy with DSP!

Today, I am sharing a couple of very quick and easy Christmas cards using predominantly Designer Series Paper!

Both of these are using the Santa’s Workshop DSP, a really cute stack of papers and if you look closely, you can see that some of it has flocking on it. The white of that striped background, has a velvety feel to it, as does the apron, and hat trims of those little elves!!!

These cards use Garden Green card bases with layers of Designer paper. Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping on these cards?! The words are die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

Card making does not have to only be for the avid crafter, and I hope by sharing these quick and easy cards, you too can be inspired to create your own cards this Christmas!

Heart of Christmas: Inlaid Technique with Dashing Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, for our very last Heart of Christmas blog hop post for 2018, I am sharing a very simple card using the Dashing Deer bundle. But don’t worry, I still have plenty more Christmas projects to share with you over the coming weeks!

My card base is the lovely Merry Merlot. The Sparkle glimmer layer was die cut with the deer die and removed and glued to the front of the card. I die cut another of that same deer in the Merry Merlot glimmer from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper pack from the 2018 Holiday catalogue.

I glued the Merlot deer into the place where the Sparkle glimmer deer was removed. This creates that inlaid look and makes the card entirely flat (apart from the bow)! It was a bit hard to photograph.

I stamped the sentiment on the inside with another smaller deer and a strip of the same Glimmer paper.

Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

Dry Embossed Christmas Card using Stampin Up Dashing Deer & Joyous Noel by Kate Morgan Australia Christmas 2018..JPG

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.

Square Easel Card with Dashing Deer and the rich Joyous Noel papers

Today I share a card that my ladies made in yesterday’s Christmas class!

It’s an Easel card that measures 4⅛” x 4⅛” when closed. I made it this size so that I could get 2 cards from 1 sheet of card stock.

I stamped the reindeer image and the floral image on the front of the card in Tranquil Tide ink as well as the sentiment on the inside. This is how the card looks when laying flat to fit into an envelope.

The Starburst Punch was used the cut some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper behind the deer. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous sparkle?!!

When the card is open and laying flat it looks like this from the front

and this on the inside. You can see the scoreline of the front and how it folds to sit up to display. I placed some Gray Granite card on the inside with a strip of the DSP and some more glimmer paper. The sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and sits on dimensionals so the front of the card forms the Easel!

Heart of Christmas: The Shrinking Deer!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a fancy fold card which opens on the diagonal!

I am using the Dashing Deer Bundle with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and some Shrinky dinks plastic. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal. I sponged the edges with Memento Black ink before adhering to the card.

Dashing Deer Shrinky Dinks card Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

The two deer dies were used to die cut some black shrinky dinks plastic which I then heat with my heat tool to shink them. How cute are they? The were a little tricky to shrink as they turned out so small, but it was worth it!

I sponged some Sahara Sand ink across the bottom of the Very Vanilla oval and stamped the edge with the flower image from the Dashing Deer stamp set. The ovals are die cut using the Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits dies.

When the card is open it looks like this. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and the flower image in Sahara Sand ink and added a strip of the DSP.

To make this card, you simple score an A4 sheet down the centre and across the centre. Then cut the A4 sheet on the diagonal from one corner to the other. This will give you two cards to make from the one sheet. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal and glued on.

Colour Creations: Gray Granite Pocket Card with a hidden surprise inside!

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Tonight we are featuring Gray Granite!!!

I have made a Pocket card, but it’s no ordinary Pocket card as it has a hidden surprise inside. Read on to find out more!

The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is the feature, along with the Dashing Deer bundle. You may recognise that deer from a recent card I made. I had stamped a few extra and it was perfect for this card too.

The full instructions are written below, but I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this and added the Circle Tab Punch pull tab to the card inside.

Can you see what may be inside?!! Yes a gift card.

The belly band is created with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and held together with White Baker’s Twine. I stamped the sentiment in Gray Granite on white card and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut it out, but it was too big, so I cut it down at the top and bottom! A piece of Whisper White card is added to the back of the insert to add your message.

I can see I will make quite a few of these for Christmas gifts this year!

Instructions on how to make your own Pocket card:
To make your own pocket card with secret gift card inside, use the envelope punch board and make an envelope using 7½” x 7½” card, scored at 3” on EPB.
Cut off the top flap. Do not glue it together until the card insert is made and inserted.
Card insert: 3½” x 7” score a 2”.
Place Tear & Tape along the side edges of the flap only and fold up to create the pocket for the gift card.
Using the Circle Tab Punch cut x 1 in the same cardstock colour.
Using the ¾” circle punch, cut 2 x DSP. Glue these to the circle tab punch piece.
Fold in half and glue it to the top, centre of the card insert.
Now that the card insert is inside the envelope, you can glue the flap to hold it together.
Cut a piece of DSP 7½” x 2” and punch both ends with the scallop tag topper punch.
Wrap it around the card and tie together with a piece of 11” baker’s twine.
Decorate as desired.
You can leave it loose like a belly band or glue it to the envelope to hold it in place!

Twinkling Christmas Lights

Today I have another card using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, CASE’d directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. You may remember seeing my post on Wednesday using this same bundle, you can see it here.

My Real Red card base is embossed in the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A layer of Call Me Clover card is added down the centre.

The Whisper White card is stamped with the sprigs from the Christmas Pines stamp set. Then I added the strings for the lights, however, I forgot to stamp these last week when Andrea was here so I’ve had to improvise and so I used the line stamp from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set! I stamped it in Gray Granite ink, but 2nd generation stamping so it isn’t so dark.

Christmas card using Stampin' Ups Making Christmas Bright Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia. Holiday catalogue 2018.JPG

The Christmas lights are stamped in Real Red, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Pool Party. The tops are Gray Granite ink on coordinating card stock. Before I added each light with a dimensional, I used a sponge dauber to lightly add some ink for the light’s glow!

Can you see those Pretty Pines die cuts on top of the stamped ones? These just added an extra bit of dimension.
