The Heart of Christmas: Quilted Christmas

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 24 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is a quick and easy card using the Quilted Christmas DSP. Where, you say? Look at those 3 little Christmas trees. They are cut from the Designer paper!

The background is embossed using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. A doily is added, then the oval stitched framelit in whisper white. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, from the At Home with You stamp set (oops, forgot the add that to the product list at the bottom of this post)!

A small piece of the Red Ribbon was attached behind each tree before adding each one to the stitched oval with a dimensional. A rhinestone was added to the top of each tree!

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 20: Carols of Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Carols of Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia

When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!

Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 18

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 18 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Merry Little Labels stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label punch to create this Christmas card!

Here I have embossed the background card using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, before adding a large banner of the Quilted Christmas Designer paper with a piece of the black lace trim tied around it.

The sentiment, No Peeking is stamped with Versamark ink and silver embossed on the black card. The new Everyday Label punch is the perfect match to punch it out and adhere with dimensionals.

The sentiment inside the card, is exactly what we do on Christmas day; eat, drink and be merry! lol

A small piece of silver glimmer and the 3 little rhinestones just finish it off, don’t you agree?

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 17: Bridge Fold card with FREE tutorial

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 17 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the At Home with You stamp set, the coordinating At Home Framelit dies and the Detailed Gate Thinlits die to create this Bridge Fold Christmas card!

Heart of Christmas Inspiration Bridge Fold card with TUTORIAL using Stampin Up At Home with You & Detailed Gate thinlits die by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. #cutitnothoardit #stampinup.JPG

I started by die cutting the gate in the new Champagne Foil sheet and I was surprised how gorgeous it was. Then I had to come up with a card to use it on… and because it is quite wide, I thought it was perfect for using on a bridge fold card, but I had to come up with a solution to make it sturdy and solid, so I added some Window Sheet behind the detailed gate and because it is clear, you don’t see it! Winner!!!

I love the red front door with the Christmas wreath on it, I think it really pops behind the front gate! I’ve really tried to set the theme here with the gorgeous front gate and looking through to the front door of the house!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 16

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 16 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Merry Little Labels stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label punch to create a wine bottle tag! I find that giving a bottle of wine or champagne as a Christmas gift so much easier, and what a perfect way to dress it up with a beautiful handmade tag.

I used some retired Core’dinations card for the tag, but you can just switch it out for Pool Party cardstock. The Designer Paper is the Quilted Christmas 6″ x 6″ pack in the Holiday catalogue. The stamping of the images are done using Stampin’ Write Markers. This is a great way of using markers directly on the stamp to get different colours in the one impression!

The Banner Triple punch is awesome for creating those perfect banners!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 14

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Sorry I missed doing a Christmas themed post last week, but things were a bit busy and I was in hospital having my infusion on the Thursday and didn’t have such a pleasant experience and took a little longer to recovery (long story, but not my usual nurse to put in the cannula!). Anyway, I am back, so welcome to Week 15 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Musical Season the stamp set and the coordinating dies, Musical Instruments Framelits, Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Bridge Fold Technique.

Wow, this Specialty Designer Series Paper is so striking! It has this gorgeous shine when you catch it in the light.

Here is the back of the card, where you can write your message. I have added the harp stamped in smoky slate and die cut.
