Pampered Pets for Christmas, yay or nay?

The Playful Pets Suite is the perfect product for a card for my dear friend who has her own dog walking business. I had to put a little doggy on her Christmas card!

Pampered Pets for Christmas by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

A card base of Whisper White, stamped with Real Red ink. The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the Cherish the Season stamp set and the rest is from the Pampered Pets stamp set.

The Stitched Stars dies are used to cut some Vellum which is sits behind the focal image.

The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is so cute and the Pets Dies cut out the images from the paper. Yes, this dog is cut directly from the paper!

Mini Dimensionals help pop up the dog die cut.

Summer Theme for our final Monthly Creative Showcase 2020

AWHT Creative Showcase

Monthly Creative Showcase: Summer Theme

Tonight’s card is based on what Summer time means to me – hot days, school holidays, lazy days at home and boy, am I looking forward to the end of the school year!!!

This card is a bit of a mix of Melbourne and our holiday to Hanuama Bay, Hawaii, where we snorkelled with turtles!

The bright beach boxes are a true Melbourne icon and I have made mine in Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point and Real Red. The sand is So Saffron card as my base, with the wave patterned paper glued at the bottom and the top section is Shaded Spruce with Coastal Cabana behind for the palm trees. This was cut using the Friendly Silhouette dies.

That little turtle is cut out of the Whale of a Time DSP and the waves are also part of this paper stack. The Whale of a Time Sequins & shells are added with a glue dot.

While in isolation, it has been wonderful to have our travel memories, and to dream of one day going on another fantastic holiday.

Final Heart of Christmas for 2020

Heart of Christmas image

Welcome back to our final Heart of Christmas with the Art with Heart Team for 2020. Each month we have shared Christmas inspiration with you using current Stampin’ Up! products. Have you been inspired to make your Christmas cards & projects this year? It has been a good time while in lockdown due to COVID-19, to stay busy.

Tonight I have a fun Christmas card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set with the Snowflake Splendor DSP.

My card base is Purple Posy with the ribbon wrapped around the DSP panel. A separate bow is tied and glued at the top of the die cut (Tasteful Labels).

The little mice are stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Blends Markers; Pool Party, Ivory, Purple Posy. I added some Shimmery Chrystal Effects to the bauble. This die cut is popped up on dimensionals and the bow added.

Please head over to Judy’s blog to see the full list of participants in this month’s Heart of Christmas. We would love for you to visit each one and leave some comments if you feel inspired.

Warm and Toasty Christmas meets Curvy Christmas

How cute is this Christmas scene with the stunning Snowflake Spendor paper in the background and snow scene in front created with the new Curvy dies. The sentiment is from the Curvy Christmas stamp set which is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. It is stamped in Pool Party ink, as are the snowflakes. The trees (In the Pines) are stamped in Highland Heather and Pool Party ink.

The bunnies in the sleigh are stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

How fun is this card?!!!

Scenes under the Sea

Now it is October, we have a new Tutorial Bundle for you – some of the Art with Heart team ladies, including myself have put together 8 step by step tutorials to give you loads of fabulous ideas for using current Stampin’ Up! product. Each bundle contains 8 tutorials combined into a PDF package including colour photos, a supply list, measurements and comprehensive step by step instructions. Click here for more details. This bundle is $12AUD worldwide or free with a minimum $50 order from me in October 2020 (Australia only).

Scenes under the Sea

Here is another Whale of a Time Suite card which is very simple, just adding a couple of elements.

My card base is Balmy Blue with a piece of the designer paper creating the backdrop. This paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

The whale is punched from another sheet of DSP with the Whale Builder Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper is added above the whale spout and also some of the seaweed at the bottom. It just reminds me of looking down into a clear blue ocean with the element of shine and sparkle the water gives. I used the Forever Flourishing dies for these – who would have thought!!

This is such a simple card but this DSP creates the scene for you!

Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

3D Waves for a Whale of a Time

Having lived in Warrnambool many years ago, I have fond memories of heading out to Logan’s beach to see the whales between May – September each year. There is now a much bigger and better viewing platform as it has become quite a tourist destination.

So my card today was inspired from my childhood memories.

Whale Waves card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The designer paper pack has this full page of waves, but I cut along two lots of the waves to give me a 3D effect and for the whales to look like they are actually in the water. Placing dimensionals or foam adhesive sheets behind the layers, helps create this.

These whales were punched with the Whale Builder Punch from another sheet of the designer paper. I love how the punches can cut out images directly from the paper!

The only stamping was the fish and I haven’t added a sentiment, as I am waiting for the right occasion before doing that!

Colour Creations Showcase – Calypso Coral

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Calypso Coral!

I love the Whale of a Time Bundle and on this card, I have teamed it up with the High Tide & Well Said stamp sets and the Well Written Dies!

I used the Rock n Roll technique to stamp the whale on whisper white card before cutting it out with the Whale builder punch. The other image were stamped on the Nested Stitched Label die cut and the whale added with dimensionals!

Calypso Coral CCS Card using Whale of a Time & High Tide stamps by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

To create the background, I used the “light beam” stamp from the High Tide stamp set and repeatedly stamped in different colours, cleaning the stamp quickly on the Simply Shammy between colours.

Whale Wobble card

I just love how quickly this card came together!

Predominantly using the patterned paper, this is the main feature of this card, with very little stamping. In fact, the only stamping is the sentiments, fish and a little bit on the anchor!

Whale Wobble card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Whale Builder punch was used to punch out the whale from a piece of the patterned paper and a wobble element was placed behind it to create the 3D effect. Click here to see the whale wobbling!

I also used the Smooth Sailing dies to cut some extra seaweed/plants to add to the scene and the Brass Foil anchor.

Decorating the inside with some more designer paper, seaweed die cuts and a sentiment completes the card!
