Easy Tidings of Christmas card

Tonight is a very simple card with Tidings of Christmas designer paper, Red and Green Foil die cuts and a stamped sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. Sorry about the fuzzy/rough edges of my cardbase, think I may need a new blade on my Paper Trimmer 😜

Holly Jolly Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Seasonal Labels dies have both these fancy layering labels and the Red Foil one was die cut from the centre of the large background Red Foil layer so as not to waste it (it gets covered up)!

Plentiful Plants Thank you card

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Did you have a win on the Melbourne Cup yesterday? I don’t follow the horse racing but I am thankful for the day off work and yesterday’s weather was glorious!

Week 23 – Just Jade

This card is created using the product suite, Bloom Where You’re Planted. The Basic Border dies were used to cut either end of the Gray Granite card to create a panel. I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to create the pattern with the same colour ink.

Plentiful Plants Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hanging basket is die cut from the Silver Foil and the bow is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribobn Combo Pack. The foliage is stamped in Just Jade and Soft Succulent. The front plant has Wink of Stella on it, but it doesn’t show very well in the photo. The pot in the hanging basket is stamped in Gray Granite.

On the inside a piece of the DSP is added along the bottom and die cut pot and plant from the patterned paper were added with a stamped sentiment.

Each Monday evening, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight’s cards feature some pinecones again, which coordinte beautifully with the patterned paper in the background! Pinecone hunting was one of my childhood memories, who could find the biggest one to put in the open fire place of our home.

Christmas Season Tis the Season by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Christmas Season bundle and Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper are heavily featured in these cards.

The card base, stamped branches and sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) are Evening Evergreen. The pinecones are stamped in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

The Soft Succulent layer is embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. These pinecones are stamped off once in the background and full strength on the top layer in Early Espresso for a darker look.

On both cards I added some of the Evening Evergreen In Color Jewels.

CCBH Highland Heather – Sparkly Playful Alphabet

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 22 – Highland Heather

Tonight I am focusing on using the Playful Alphabet dies as my focus. I chose the Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers and the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP pack, which is the purple in the background. The Pale Papaya panel lightens the card up a little more with the coordinating colour ribbon.

Playful Alphabet Feminine Handmade card for Highland Heather CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I just adore this piece of floral paper and the Scalloped Rectangle die is perfect for gorgeous feminine cards.

Before die cutting the letters, I placed some adhesive foam sheet on the back of the Highland Heather cardstock before running it through with the dies. This way, you just peel the backing off the foam and adhere each letter to the card (lining them up with a ruler). I really like how they are right justified and it also makesd it easier to get the spacing just right 😉

As you can sort of see in this photo, I added some Wink of Stella for extra sparkle to each of the letters.

On the inside, I added the extra piece of the floral paper (which I did cut the centre out of for the front). Then I added some white card to write my message.

Encircled in Beauty Christmas Bauble

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am using the Encircled in Beauty dies to create my Christmas bauble.

Encircled in Beauty Christmas Bauble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the various dies in this pack, I alternated the sizes between Basic White and Silver Foil (the purple toned sheet).  There is also one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind the sentiment layer, can you spot it?!!

Encircled in Beauty Christmas Bauble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 small

The sentiment is from Peaceful Deer stamp set and is stamped in Smoky Slate ink to coordinate with the card base. I used a Sponge Dauber to add ink around the edges of the patterned paper layer, Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Soft Succlent ribbon tied in a double bow with some Genial Gems finished my project off beautifully.

CCBH Gray Granite – Plentiful Plants

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 21 – Gray Granite

Tonight I am using the Plentiful Plants Bundle which I got for my birthday recently! I don’t have any of the patterned papers that coordinate with it, but I found some leafy designs in the Christmas papers, Painted Christmas DSP that was perfect, along with the In Good Taste DSP.

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The macrame hanging basket was die cut using the In Good Taste DSP. The same pattern is in the background across the card. The pot is stamped in Gray Granite ink and the plants in Soft Succulent ink. The scallop border die is from the Contours dies, set to be a firm favourite!

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 detail

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with my Heat Tool. I added a gorgeous Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon bow and In Color Jewels.

On the inside, I added some more coordinating plants in a plant stand in the bottom corner.

Christmas Season Pinecones & Berries

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

I was pleased with this card as it came together. I adore that pretty patterned DSP with the berries (Painted Christmas), so that was my starting point for this card, as I built up the background layers.

Christmas Season Seasons Greetings by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped some of the berries (Real Red & Evening Evergreen ink) to compliment the patterned paper and some greenery (Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen inks), but it still needed more, so I stamped four pinecones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

Christmas to Remember Tag Card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have a card very similar to one Michele shared recently. I got these Tailor Made Tags dies for my birthday at the end of August and couldnt wait any longer to get them out and have have a play.

christmas-to remember-tailored-tags-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-australia-2021.png

This gorgeous patterned paper, Painted Christmas, is beautiful on both sides of each sheet. I used the red foil from the Red & Green Foil Sheets pack along the top and bottom edges of the paper behind the tags. One tag is cut with the pincecone paper and the top tag just has a small section across the bottom, leaving room for the stamped sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) in Evening Evergreen ink. The Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and small piece of retired gold thread are placed through the top of the tags.

Christmas Season & Tailored Tags by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 sq

One the tags were tied together, I added some dimensionals and adhered them to the card, before adding some 2021–2023 In Color Jewels to complete my card.
