Heart of Christmas: Inlaid Technique with Dashing Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, for our very last Heart of Christmas blog hop post for 2018, I am sharing a very simple card using the Dashing Deer bundle. But don’t worry, I still have plenty more Christmas projects to share with you over the coming weeks!

My card base is the lovely Merry Merlot. The Sparkle glimmer layer was die cut with the deer die and removed and glued to the front of the card. I die cut another of that same deer in the Merry Merlot glimmer from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper pack from the 2018 Holiday catalogue.

I glued the Merlot deer into the place where the Sparkle glimmer deer was removed. This creates that inlaid look and makes the card entirely flat (apart from the bow)! It was a bit hard to photograph.

I stamped the sentiment on the inside with another smaller deer and a strip of the same Glimmer paper.

Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.

Square Easel Card with Dashing Deer and the rich Joyous Noel papers

Today I share a card that my ladies made in yesterday’s Christmas class!

It’s an Easel card that measures 4⅛” x 4⅛” when closed. I made it this size so that I could get 2 cards from 1 sheet of card stock.

I stamped the reindeer image and the floral image on the front of the card in Tranquil Tide ink as well as the sentiment on the inside. This is how the card looks when laying flat to fit into an envelope.

The Starburst Punch was used the cut some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper behind the deer. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous sparkle?!!

When the card is open and laying flat it looks like this from the front

and this on the inside. You can see the scoreline of the front and how it folds to sit up to display. I placed some Gray Granite card on the inside with a strip of the DSP and some more glimmer paper. The sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and sits on dimensionals so the front of the card forms the Easel!

Heart of Christmas: The Shrinking Deer!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a fancy fold card which opens on the diagonal!

I am using the Dashing Deer Bundle with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and some Shrinky dinks plastic. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal. I sponged the edges with Memento Black ink before adhering to the card.

Dashing Deer Shrinky Dinks card Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

The two deer dies were used to die cut some black shrinky dinks plastic which I then heat with my heat tool to shink them. How cute are they? The were a little tricky to shrink as they turned out so small, but it was worth it!

I sponged some Sahara Sand ink across the bottom of the Very Vanilla oval and stamped the edge with the flower image from the Dashing Deer stamp set. The ovals are die cut using the Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits dies.

When the card is open it looks like this. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and the flower image in Sahara Sand ink and added a strip of the DSP.

To make this card, you simple score an A4 sheet down the centre and across the centre. Then cut the A4 sheet on the diagonal from one corner to the other. This will give you two cards to make from the one sheet. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal and glued on.

Twinkling Christmas Lights

Today I have another card using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, CASE’d directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. You may remember seeing my post on Wednesday using this same bundle, you can see it here.

My Real Red card base is embossed in the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A layer of Call Me Clover card is added down the centre.

The Whisper White card is stamped with the sprigs from the Christmas Pines stamp set. Then I added the strings for the lights, however, I forgot to stamp these last week when Andrea was here so I’ve had to improvise and so I used the line stamp from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set! I stamped it in Gray Granite ink, but 2nd generation stamping so it isn’t so dark.

The Christmas lights are stamped in Real Red, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Pool Party. The tops are Gray Granite ink on coordinating card stock. Before I added each light with a dimensional, I used a sponge dauber to lightly add some ink for the light’s glow!

Can you see those Pretty Pines die cuts on top of the stamped ones? These just added an extra bit of dimension.

Heart of Christmas: Making Christmas Bright

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing some cards CASEd directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. To case is to Copy and Share Everything, and it is a great way to get started, especially if you are struggling to come up with your own ideas!

I had a team member come and spend a day stamping and we share stamp sets that we may not own ourselves, but we spent way too much time chatting and not enough stamping, lol. Does that happen when you get together with your crafty friends??!!!!

Anyway, I borrowed Andrea’s Making Christmas Bright stamp set and coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch to create these cards.

This is a 4-1/4″ square card in Call Me Clover card stock. The patterned paper is Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped on Gray Granite card stock and added with dimensionals, with some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim behind it. The Christmas light is stamped in Pineapple Punch!

This next card uses the same products but it is an A5 sized card. The sentiment is stamped and cut out using the Layering Circle Framelits dies and the Big Shot. The strings of Christmas lights are coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers; Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover and Read Red!

Heart of Christmas: Kissing Technique meets Festive Farmhouse & Dashing Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a card using the Kissing Technique along with the Festive Farmhouse designer paper and the Dashing Deer bundle!

I added a layer of designer paper then another two strips across the centre with a small strip of Silver Glimmer.

Festive Farmhouse meets Dashing Deer Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018 Holiday catalogue.JPG

The deer is inked in Gray Granite and the Sheet Music stamp is inked in Night of Navy ink and they are stamped together (just like kissing the two stamps) before onto the white card. Then I die cut the deer and added it to the vellum cut out with the Starburst Punch. I added some dimensionals to the back of the vellum behind the deer and added some Silver Metallic Thread across the dimensionals being placing it onto the card. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, added some White Emboss Powder and heat set it.

I repeated the stamped image with the kissing technique again on the inside and added another die cut to the top corner.

Heart of Christmas: Santa’s Workshop

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a couple of quick Christmas card ideas using the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper. You need to check this out, because if you look closely, can you see the flocking? It is on the snowflakes and looks quite velvety, so pretty!

You can see it better here

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop Santas Workshop SDSP Holiday Catalogue 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia.

The sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set with coordinating Dies to cut them out instead of fussy cutting with scissors. You’ve got to love that!!!!

On the inside I cut the sign post from a sheet of the paper.

This next card also uses the same products, but I embossed over the Designer Paper with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this lady image (also cut from the paper) she reminds me of a grandma who loves baking Christmas cookies!!!

For her to stand out a bit more from the background papers, I added a piece of Vellum cut with the Starburst Punch. Look at that flocking on her apron!!!

I placed this little elf on the inside. He reminds me of a little kid running inside to the smell of the cookies baking, yummy!!

Frame with Interchangeable ‘O’

Today I am sharing the project we made at my class on Thursday and the ladies had a great time making them. I allowed them to make up to 5 each and choose their own colours. Below are all the examples I had for them to choose from!

I got the frames from KMart and started by removing the glass. I cut a piece of Whisper White card to 8″x6″ and scored it across the page at every 1/2″. Not sure if you can see that in the photo? I placed this back in the frame, then the glass and the other pieces that it came with before putting the backing piece in. Having the scored lines allowed me to line up the H, M, E, leaving a space for the interchanging ‘O’. These were die cut using the Large Letters Framelits dies. Each of the ‘O’s were die cut using either the Layering Circle Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits or the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. Behind the ‘O’ is a magnet glued to the white card. Behind each ‘O’ I have added some Magnet tape.

Under each photo below I will list the decorating products and colours used.

Heart of Christmas: Simply Elegant

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing another card focusing heavily on this stunning Joyous Noel Designer paper and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer.

I was inspired by a card created by Amy Koenders and it really caught my eye. I used the same piece of DSP (because it is my favourite!) but I changed up the top section and the card base.

Joyous Noel DSP & Glimmer handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Holiday catalogue 2018

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamp set and the Classic Label punch to cut it out.

Here’s the inside using another strip of this DSP, Glimmer strip and another glimmer sprig!
