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!

Window Box flower pot

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a very pretty birthday card using the Window Box Thinlits dies.

I cased this from Tina Rappe, who made one in pinks!

I adore Pool Party, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip as a colour combination!

The sentiment is from the Cool Treats stamp set. Don’t you just love the font? I love how the ‘Happy’ is capitalised and the ‘Birthday’ is italics!

Happy 1st Year Anniversary, Deb

Dear Crafters,

Last week one of my gorgeous team members celebrated her 1st year with Stampin’ Up! and I sent her this card.

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event and these were some of the products I was fortunate to purchase on a premier pre-purchase order. You too can get your hands on these earlier than 2017 if join my team!!

This new designer series paper is called Carried Away and you can get it for free with any $90 order from January 4th 2017.

It coordinates with the stamps set, Lift Me Up and the Up and Away Thinlits.

Check out this balloon cut out with the thinlits. Isn’t it adorable?

Here is the inside on the card, which I also stamped with some more smaller hot air balloons in the coordinating Mint Macaron ink.

I also loved this sentiment and thought it was very appropriate for celebrating Deb’s 1st year anniversary!

I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the words ‘another year’ in the sentiment, but I’m not sure it photographed so well.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

Sugarplum Sweetness

Dear Crafters,

Oh my, how I do love this colour combination of Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

Floral Phrases, Detailed Floral Thinlits, #stampinup, Thank you, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card, DIY

I have needed to make some thank you cards for some very special people who have been very supportive in helping me out since I had ankle surgery over 4 weeks ago now. I am starting to get up and walk again, but its a huge process. I certainly have a real empathy for those who struggle with any form of disability with the legs. I still have a cast on, but have a special shoe that I wear over the cast to be able to put some weight on it. Anyway, enough of me, lets get back to this stunning card!

I cut a piece of sweet sugarplum card down to fit inside the base card, before using the Detailed Floral Thinlits to die cut the floral images at both ends on the big shot machine using the precision plate. To get all the intricate bits out, I used the new die brush! This was adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The sentiment was stamped and punched out with the Word Window punch.

I even stamped a coordinating image on the inside of the card and on the back of the envelope.

Bright Florals

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the brand new Detailed Floral thinlits dies, another of my must have on my first annual catalogue order!

Detailed Floral Thinlits, 2016-2018 In Colour Markers, Floral Phrases, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by die cutting the black card with the thinlits and glued them to the top and bottom of the card, then stamped the sentiment and added the enamel dot.

Using the new 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, I coloured all the flowers and leaves. Because the borders of the thinlits are black, it doesn’t matter how well you colour in as it doesn’t show on the black card!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy, Thinlits Dies

You’re in my thoughts

Dear Crafters,

It is always tough to come up with a card design for someone who may have lost a loved one, so I always like to have some on hand to be able to grab when required.

Today, I share a card using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits die.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

I have used Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, purple being the colour of love and I think it is lovely in this sympathy card.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

Notice I have glued the heart die cut behind the top layer, framing part of the heart but also so it gives that gorgeous shadow behind once the layer is adhered with dimensionals.

Always remember to stamp the envelope and the inside of your cards!
