Arrange a Wreath this Christmas

Can you believe it is July already? Where has this year gone?!

Tonight you may not quite be ready for what I am about to share with you, but I have my first Christmas card!

I know it is always a panic towards the end of the year, to be ready for Christmas, as it comes around so fast when we are super busy. I start in July and make one or two cards a week, so by the time 1 December comes, I have a nice little stash of cards to send out in the post.

Anyway here goes!

I  using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty. I have created a square card with a layer of the new In Color, Just Jade textured with the Greenery embossing folder, love it. Then a layer of designer paper from the Flowers for Every Season paper pack.

The wreath is die cut in Just Jade and the flowers in Poppy Parade to coordinate with the designer paper. The signage is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Black ink. I attached some Linen Thread so it is hanging from the wreath and added a little bow at the top. These die cut elements are added with dimensionals for that real wreath effect.

Merry Christmas with a twist!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday and you were able to have a quieter day today to recover!

Tonight I have another sneak peek for you with the Country Club Suite available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

My parents have been very keen golfers for many years and all my Dad wanted for Christmas was a handmade card. So, when this suite arrived just before Christmas, I knew I had to use it, but with a twist to make it a Christmas card.

No the tees, golf balls and grass are not upside down LOL, they were deliberately placed like this to look like Christmas baubles hanging down from some greenery!!!

See those golf balls? They are wood elements and I embossed them! Yes, I ran them through my machine using the large golf ball die to get those dimples on the balls!!! Give it a go, the outcome is so cool.

Colours: Garden Green, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy

On the inside, I carried the theme through and added the golf image by colouring it with Stampin’ Write Markers direct to the stamp to get the colouring of the grass, tee and ball!

Brightly Gleaming Ornaments meet a Product Medley!

How are coping with the silly season? I am finding it super busy and so tonight I have a very quick and easy card for you!

I love how we can mix and match so many of our products and they still work – the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley meets Brightly Gleaming Ornaments!

This card is super simple, but I love how these ornaments shine above the background. The Real Red ribbons I have used are retired product, but how good do they look? The 1/8″ ribbon that the ornaments are hanging from is added with a glue dot behind each ornament and folded over the top of the white/gold star layer before gluing it to the card. The thicker red ribbon is wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.

The ornament punches are used with the Designer paper and again with a little gold foil for the top of each one. Then they are added with dimensionals for some height.

This card was made in about 5 minutes, but looks a million dollars!!! 😉

Deer with gold foil antlers is divine

Yikes, only two weeks until Christmas Day 😲 🎄🎁

Have you finished your Christmas cards yet? I have already got mine in the mail, but I still have a couple left to do for people nearby. Thank goodness for the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to make is super easy!

I adore this paper of the deer with their gold foil antlers, and I didn’t want to cover it up or cut into it too much; it needs to shine!

The Stitched Nested Label dies in Gold Foil added enough glitz with the Starburst circle on top and the deer sticker. The tinsel behind these elements adds the extra Christmas sparkle.

This one is a simple design with the layered circles in foil, designer paper and embossed card for added interest. The tree with those gorgeous gold stars finishes it off nicely.

Red Roses for Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

We are back for another week of Heart of Christmas and again I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite.  

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are super pretty and as you will see, when coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, you can create some amazing Christmas projects. You can also purchase the Stamp set and dies as a bundle saving 10% (#153947), but they are only available while stocks last.

I really love the richness of this card and the pop of colour of the featured rose.

Coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake and Colour Lifter. The berries also have some Glittery Crystal Effects for added shine.

Peachy tones for Christmas time

Tonight I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite, only available while stocks last, so make sure you add it to your cart now if you are thinking of purchasing it. My card tonight is not so Chrismassy though and I wanted to show you that it can be used for other occasions!

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are available as a bundle saving 10% (#153947) or individually.

I deliberately haven’t added a sentiment to this card, as I was experimenting with different colours. I used to love the Just Joey roses at my mums house as they were this very soft peachy pink colour. I have used Petal Pink for mine.

Christmastime is Here, Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2019 by Kate Morgan, Australia..jpg

Can you see all the glitter on the roses? It’s a little hard to see in the photo, but when I was adding the Wink of Stella to the purple berries and the pine cones, my Wink of Stella got flowing a bit too quickly and I ended up with glitter on my fingers. So I just rubbed my fingers over the rose petals! I love the soft effect it adds.

Christmas product for a rosey birthday

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Even thought this is a Christmas suite of products, it doesn’t have to necessarily be used for Christmas cards. I am sharing a card tonight that I have made for a family member who loves flowers, especially roses and as soon as I saw this paper I knew it had to be used for her birthday card. This card is super simple and for the Beginner Stamper in mind, as it is mainly using the gorgeous Designer Paper as the focus.

Using another of the Ornate Frames Dies adds a gorgeous filigree pattern for the sentiment to be stamped in metallic ink.  Wrapping some Gold ribbon around the centre over the paper joins and adding a bow in the same ribbon.

The inside of the card has some more of the same Designer Paper glued to a strip of Cherry Cobbler card and glued to some Whisper White card.

Brightly Gleaming Dashing Deer

Tonight is a copper detailed deer from the Annual catalogue. I’m really pleased it carried over from last Christmas, as it has been a favourite of mine. I am teaming it up tonight with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer paper from the current Holiday catalogue. Don’t you just love all those foil elements?!

Did you notice these Ornate Frames dies in the Halloween section? Here in Australia, Halloween is not as big as in the USA, and I don’t create for the occasions, but these really looked fabulous and I got them to use for sentiments. You wouldn’t believe how many different stamp sets fit into them!!!

The Delicata Celestial Copper ink looks fab on dark card as do the leafy foil elements behind the sentiment. On the inside, I simply added some more of the ribbon wrapped around a strip of Night of Navy card and adhered it all to some Very Vanilla card stock.
