Most Wonderful Time for Beginner Stampers

Do you sometimes get a bit overwhelmed with product choice, especially when you are starting out?

Well fear no more, because this product medley, has most of the product included in the kit. Just add cardstock, adhesive and inks to complete your projects.

  • The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes these exclusive products:
  • Most Wonderful Time photopolymer stamp set – 11 stamps; suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, d, g)
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
  • 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
  • 7 sticker sheets
  • Gold/white tinsel trim, 10 yards (9.1m)
  • 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
  • 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, AC p. 170)

Product colours: Basic Black, Old Olive, Real Red, White, Gold foil

This card I have kept very simple, aimed at the beginner stamper. A Real Red card base folded in half with a strip of the patterned paper down the centre. This paper has a gold foil accent on the trees, which adds a classy look.

The banner and the deer are both stickers, so very easy to add. Stamp the tree onto a Stitched Oval in Old Olive ink then using the Wink of Stella pen, colour the image while the ink is still wet. This will pick up some of the colour and blend beautifully (I don’t think you can see the glittery look in the photos). Add one of the gold stars to the top of the tree to finish off.

A full list of products can be found at the end of this post.

My Aug-Dec Mini catalogue favourite products

Have you had a chance to flip through the new 2020 August-December Mini catalogue and make a list of your favourite Christmas products?

Some of my favourite products are:

Dove of Hope Bundle  – I think this one is a great bundle for our current COVID situation to give hope to all. We are currently in Stage 4 lock-down in Melbourne, we have a curfew of not being out after 8pm and only allowed out to exercise for 1 hour per day. So this bundle gave me comfort and I will be using it heaps.

Fancy Fold Christmas card and the New Aug-Dec Mini catalogue is now live!

My card today is a fancy fold design using the Trimming the Town Designer Paper and the Dove of Hope Bundle.

Dove of Hope Bundle

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Place the Old Olive card in the Trimmer with the 13cm side at the top and score at 2.5cm. Fold this over and burnish with a bone folder. This creates the top of the card.

For the inside of the card, take the Whisper white card and glue the 2 pieces of Designer Paper to each side, then glue to the inside of the card base. Stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 i

For the front of the card, place the Poppy Parade piece on the inside in the centre and line it up with the bottom of the card. Holding it carefully in place, add some glue to the top only and fold down the Old Olive flap. Now you can add the Designer Paper (I sponged the edges with Poppy Parade ink).

Trimming the Town DSP

Die cut the pieces of the dove in Whisper White card and glue a small section so the filigree part of the wings sits up a little and is not glued down. Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card. On a small piece of white card, stamp the bauble in Versamark ink, add White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Colour the bauble with Water Painters and ink pads before cutting it out with scissors and gluing it to the card.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 c

Add 3 small rhinestones to the bauble and tie some white ribbon around the top flap and tie in a bow. I placed a glue dot behind the bow to hold it in place.

Measurements:
Old Olive card base – 14.8cm x 13cm
Whisper White card (inside) – 14.3cm x 10cm
Designer Paper (inside) – 10cm x 2.5cm (2 pieces)
Poppy Parade card – 10.3cm x 9.5cm
Designer Paper (front) – 9cm x 7.2cm

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!!! 😉

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
