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.

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.

OnStage 2019 in Sydney

Wow, what a wonderful time I had last weekend in Sydney for OnStage, the Annual event for demonstrators!

I flew up on Friday, leaving cold Melbourne (16 degrees) and arriving in Sydney to 30+ degrees. Thankfully I was picked up by a wonderful team member, Cathy and she drove me back to her home north of Manly. She and her hubby needed to head out for a short time, so I was more than comfortable sitting with her gorgeous dog, Superman, on the back deck over looking the pool with a lovely sea breeze.

Saturday we were up and gone by 7am to head into Darling Harbour to the ICC. The event began and here is our view of the stage with 600+ other demo friends.

Early on in the morning, we received our new Mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure to ogle over. It sure is an amazing catalogue and our first comments were, after picked our jaws up off the floor, “we are in trouble!”.

During the day, after some of the product demonstrations, we get to create 4 x Make N Takes. Here are a couple of them. The first one uses the Peaceful Poppies Suite, absolutely gorgeous 💗

This one is the Parisian Blossoms Suite, I adore the Champagne Rhinestones!

and these are the 3″ x 3″ Notecards & envelopes from the Best Dressed Suite

Here is a photo of Cathy & I at the event, I love this pic of us!

Our backpack we received when arriving for Registration, with lots of goodies inside, including a Stamp Set, pens, notebook and more!

Another part of attending these events is, we are able to place a Product Purchase Premiere order. A select group of products can be purchased within 3 days of the event for those who attended. Mine arrived late yesterday!!!! Here’s a sneak peek of what I ordered!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of what being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator can bring. Attending these events is definitely a highlight for me, catching up with so many like-minded people and making life long friends. If you have ever thought about joining, do it, you won’t be disappointed xx

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.

Birthday Goodness for a masculine birthday celebration

Tonight I am saying Hi from Sydney!

Yes, I flew here this morning in time for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event tomorrow for demonstrators. I am so excited because my dear friend, Catherine, picked me up from the airport and has invited me to stay with her and her family for two nights 🥰 We are going to have SO MUCH FUN!!!

I’ll share more information about OnStage early next week when I get home, but for now I share the card I made for my husband’s birthday on Wednesday. Let me start by saying I adore this sweet stamp set, Birthday Goodness, however it was best to make a card rather than bake the images for him, although I know he would have loved a stack of donuts!

Masculine Birthday card using Stampin Up Birthday Goodness & Stampin Blends Markers by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.jpg

Look at the gorgeous shimmery glimmer of the icing. This is the Shimmery Crystal Effects added last for that gloriously inviting glaze!!!

The cake stand was coloured using the Wink of Stella and the Delicata Celestial Copper Ink Refill. I did this by dropping 1 small drop of ink refill onto a clear block and by swirling the Wink of Stella through it, I was able to get a lovely soft coppery shine to apply to the stand. Initially I was going to colour the entire stand, but I think just using it as a feature trim and leaving the main part white, gives it more class!, don’t you think?!

The inside is also stamped and coloured in the same colours as the front.

Tis the Season for Roses

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight’s Heart of Christmas card is using the Christmastime is Here Suite available until the end of November. It is a really beautiful suite of products, especially if you love roses!

This image is actually die cut from one of the sheets of the Designer Paper. That certainly makes things easier, although I do enjoy colouring, but sometimes you just need to get things done in a hurry, right?!!

The card base is Mossy Meadow with another piece of card cut 5mm shorter to layer on top. This piece is embossed with the Scripty 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Glue a piece of DSP to the left and wrap the ribbon around and tie is a knot. Now glue this layer to your card.

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

The sentiment is stamped in metallic ink onto a frame from the Ornate Frames Dies, which you can find in the Holiday catalogue (pg53). So many sentiments fit into these dies and they are a must have addition to your craft room!

Add some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and you have a wonderful card to send a loved one this Christmas.

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!!!

Brightly Gleaming with Dashing Deer, Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2019 Art with Heart Christmas Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Australia

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.

Brightly Gleaming Bookmark Card

Tonight’s card is a gift and card all in one; a bookmark card!

Bookmark Card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite 2019 Holiday catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia..jpg

I used this particular piece of Designer Paper, so the bookmark can be used all year round and doesn’t just reflect Christmas!

Card base: 10¾” x 5¾”, score at 4¼”. Rotate 180o and score again at 2¼” then perforate this line. Insert the smaller end into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch so the edge lines up with the perforation. Trim off the excess. Then decorate with Designer Paper, stamps, punches, ribbons and trims!

Heart of Christmas is the Most Wonderful Time

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 39 in the Holiday catalogue is featured again tonight.  

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.JPG

I cannot tell you how quick it has been to create cards with this medley. You can pretty much cut up different pieces of DSPs from the pack to different sizes and just add them to your cards as they all coordinate. I start doing this and then work out what size I want the feature piece to be. In this first card, I wanted a square and because I chose the DSP with the trees, I thought it would be perfect to stamp the smaller tree and add the reindeer.

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue..jpg

The banner stickers make adding sentiments super fast too!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

This next card I kept the DSP to one larger piece and added the feature in the centre with some ovals. The tree in the centre is a sticker and I just added some of the tinsel trim around it and a Copper Star Element on top.

The sentiment is stamped in the Golden Glitz Delicata metallic ink on Thick Whisper White card.

Sip Sip Hooray in a Buckle Fold card

Tonight I share a Buckle Fold card that I made for one of my team members who recently promoted. I think she is a star and I know she loves to party, so you will understand the products used!!!

I have used the Brightly Gleaming DSP and the Sip Sip Hooray stamp set from the Holiday catalogue. Who said this Designer Paper needed to be for Christmas projects?!!

This card looks very fancy, but really it was so quick and easy to create. Here it is open and you can see how the belt tucks into the buckle!

I stamped the wine glass in Delicata Celestial Copper metallic ink and then used the Petal Pink for the drink with some Wink of Stella over the top.
