Heart of Christmas begins for 2022!

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

July is a great time to start making those Christmas cards before the year gets away from us, and it’s Christmas before we know it!

When I first saw the JD Mini catalogue, I fell in love with the Storybook Gnomes Suite (#159630) and they were the first items to drop into my shopping cart!

Storybook Gnomes Suite 159630

I love how the images on the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper can be cut out using the Gnomes dies. The trees are from a Saleabration product Tree Lot dies, that can be earned free with a qualifying order). The are cut from the Parakeet Party colour in 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer papers and the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series paper. The gnomes hat and feet are die cut from the left over paper around the sheet I die cut the gnomes from. His nose is also the Glimmer paper (Tahitian Tide). The beard is Shimmery White cardstock. The Fabulous Frames dies was used to cut the oval in the centre of the DSP. The stamping inside the oval uses Pacific Point ink.

This next card uses some DSP and then I stamped/die cut the mushroom and gnome. These are coloured with alcohol Blends Combo markers. then added with dimensionals to the card. The sentiment is stamped in Balmy Blue ink.

These next two cards can be made in multiples as they are created using the Storybook Designer Paper. No sign of stamps or ink, just the paper and Gnome dies! Some Simply Elegant Trim and 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots were added for some bling.

Bermuda Bay Fancy Fold

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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

Week 8 – Bermuda Bay

Tonight’s fancy fold card features the Count on Me stamp set, Perfectly Penciled DSP and the Butterfly Kisses DSP. The Perfectly Penciled DSP has Black & White images that can be coloured. I have used Bermuda Bay and Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers.

Count on Me Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

First step is to stamp the outline of the bear onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus and Crumb Cake ink. Re-ink and stamp a second time to get a darker colour, then take the rectangle stamp from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set, ink it up with Crumb Cake ink and stamp over the entire image. This gives the bear a wonderful colour. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut close to the outline stamping. The circle is stamped with the round shape from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink, then cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies. The heart is cut using the Give it a Whirl dies in the same Butterfly Kisses DSP. Linen Thread and the In Color Gems are added for extra texture and sparkle!

The Deer Builder Punch is so easy to use with the Silver Foil. I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind it on two strips of the Whimsy and Wonder Specialty DSP (unfortunately this has sold out, but you could use any patterned paper really).

The word Joy was stamped multiple times and I just eyeballed it. You could probably use the Stamparatus to line them up properly if you wanted to.

Here are a few more designs using this same suite of products; the first few are the same design with various patterned papers from the same pack. Very easy for making multiples of and just add different embellisments.

My card base and poinsettia flowers are Merry Merlot with Evening Evergreen leaves (these are die cut with the same die). The twigy pieces are cut from the Snowy White Velvet Sheets and the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Papers. I used the White Chalk Marker to add dots to the petals.

Eden’s Garden Collection for Christmas cards

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 featuring the new exclusive early release Eden’s Garden Collection from the upcoming 2022 Mini catalogue but these are available to purchase now! In this collection there is the Eden’s Garden Cling stamp set and Eden dies (can be purchased as a bundle to save more), the Ever Eden Specialty DSP, Garden Gems and Ever Eden Cotton Paper.

Card 1 – starting with a white card base, I added two strips of the Ever Eden Specialty DSP on each side. I cut the darker centre strip to 3″ wide and added Gold Metallic paper strips on both sides, before glueing to the centre of the card.

Card 2 – An Evening Evergreen card base with a layer of Soft Succlent card, stamped randomly with the leaves from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This was then embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing folder and I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber and same colour ink.
