So in love with Peter Rabbit of Fable Friends

Today, I have one of the cutest stamp sets in the new Occasions catalogue, Fable Friends. It has Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle duck images and these absolutely take me back to my childhood. My Nanna (who passed away in 1980) even cross-stitched both of these for my sister and myself when we were young children. I still have it and it’s so precious to me, so when I saw this in the catalogue it was straight on my list!

Fable Friends & Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

My card base is Balmy Blue, embossed using the new Lace Dynamic TIEF. The So Saffron circle is die cut using the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and the leaves are from the same set, cut in Soft Sea Foam. The flower is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set which coordinates with these framelits.

Peter Rabbit is stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut him so he sat on top of the yellow die cut. I added a couple of little pearl embellishments for his buttons.

The Organdy Balmy Blue ribbon can be earned for FREE with any $90 order and it comes with 4 other coloured rolls of ribbon in the one pack!!! Great value freebie!

Beauty Abounds with stunning Monarch Butterflies for the start of Sale-a-bration!

Tomorrow is the start of Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue 2019!!!

Are you excited? There are so many gorgeous new products and I’d love to know what will be first on your shopping list. I must confess, I loved so much, but I had to have some self control and started with the butterflies. I just cannot live without them!

Some of our lovely team ladies took part in a card swap, which meant we made 11 of the same card, sent them to Claire who divided them up and returned 11 cards to us. The variety is amazing and to see what this talented group of ladies came up with was awe-inspiring!

Here is the one I made using the Beauty Abounds bundle; Beauty Abounds Stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies. I love how there are 2 dies and they overlap for that stunning two tone look.

This colour palette; Black, White & Pumpkin Pie, reminds me of the most common monarch butterflies we have here in Australia and we have had plenty of them this spring and summer!

I used my Stamparatus to setup all the stamp images to make it so much quicker and easier when making multiples of the one card – awesome!

The inside I stamped the sentiment and butterfly and rounded 2 corners of the Whisper White card stock using the Envelope Punch Board!

Paper Loop Decorations

Today, I have some cute Paper Loop Decorations that I have made with some retired Stampin’ Up! products, but I have a link below for our current DSPs that will only be available until 2 January, so get in quick.

They are so pretty and more flower-like than many other tutorials out there, which are mainly snowflakes shapes.  I made these for my close friends who catch up most Fridays for coffee!

I got my inspiration from Dawn Griffiths and you can see her tutorial here.

A sugar hit for Boxing Day!

What a busy Christmas Day we had with all the family and extended family coming to our house to celebrate. I love seeing all the kids, cousins and our newest member, Conor who is 5 weeks old, join us! It is a time for no one being excluded and I love that everyone came who we had invited. The relaxed atmosphere and everyone helping themselves and feeling comfortable, made my day.

I can now share with you a couple of the kids gifts for my nieces and nephews. As they are getting older and they have everything they need, I find it difficult to buy for them, so we give them each a gift card. But this year, I wanted to make it a bit different to the usual gift card holder or just putting it in an envelope with a card, so I found these glass jars, placed the gift card inside and filled them up with lollies. I mean, what kid doesn’t love some extra sugar on Christmas Day, right?!!!

Gift Card Ideas for Christmas Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.jpg

To decorate the tops, I tied some ribbon around each one and added a monogram of their name (luckily they are all different initials) in glimmer paper, with a starburst punch of Christmas DSP and a circle die cut of coordinating card. How beautiful do they look?

Oh deer, Vanilla & Gold!

Today, is the last day of school for 2018 for my girls and the final day of primary school for my eldest daughter :0  It has been a big week, with her Graduation night on Tuesday evening and half day of school today to end the year.

Anyway, I have another Christmas card for you before my in-laws arrive tomorrow for the start of our Christmas celebrations. This one is simply some DSP, Gold Foil and the Detailed Deer die cut.

All is Bright DSP & Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Australia. Christmas 2018.JPG

The sentiment is stamped on strips of card with Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder applied and set with the heat tool. Then I cut the words up and added with dimensionals. These are quite simple and you could mass produce them with not too much trouble.

It’s almost Christmas & no time for fancy cards now!

With less than a week until Christmas today, I needed some quick last minute, easy designs for my Christmas cards.

This one uses a piece of the Joyous Noel DSP placed on the card base with some of the stunning Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon tied around it in a bow to look like a present. Such a simple but effective design.

The Merry Christmas to All stamp set has the erfect sentiments, stamped in Merry Merlot ink and another strip of the DSP is added inside with a strip of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. Doesn’t it tie the card together perfectly?!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 29th colour; Merry Merlot. This is also our final colour for 2018, but we will be back to continue on the 8th January 2019 with Mint Macaron!

Today’s card is another quick and easy Christmas card using strips of the Joyous Noel DSP and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in Merry Merlot.

Joyous Noel with Stampin Up Detailed Deer by Kate Morgan Australia Christmas 2018.JPG

I love this simple design and the sentiment stamped onto strips of Thick Whisper White card and cut up, then added with dimensionals creates that extra touch of class. I also love the hints of copper foil in the DSP and copper edging on the ribbon. The pearls also finished the card off nicely!

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.

Under the Mistletoe DSP Stampin Up Christmas 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

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.
