Merry Christmas with a twist!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday and you were able to have a quieter day today to recover!

Tonight I have another sneak peek for you with the Country Club Suite available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

My parents have been very keen golfers for many years and all my Dad wanted for Christmas was a handmade card. So, when this suite arrived just before Christmas, I knew I had to use it, but with a twist to make it a Christmas card.

No the tees, golf balls and grass are not upside down LOL, they were deliberately placed like this to look like Christmas baubles hanging down from some greenery!!!

See those golf balls? They are wood elements and I embossed them! Yes, I ran them through my machine using the large golf ball die to get those dimples on the balls!!! Give it a go, the outcome is so cool.

Colours: Garden Green, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy

On the inside, I carried the theme through and added the golf image by colouring it with Stampin’ Write Markers direct to the stamp to get the colouring of the grass, tee and ball!

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tropical

Tonight I have another sneak peek for some Tropical goodness available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

The Tropical Oasis Suite is one not to miss. You can see loads of this suite used on this card; the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Topics dies, Coastal Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Tropical Oasis Trinkets and the Braided Burlap Trim!

Tropical Oasis Suite by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia. Mini catalogue 2020

How gorgeous is that Coastal Weave embossing folder?!!! Oh my, I just adore it! I sponged the edges of this layer with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

The Braided Burlap Ribbon is soft and at the ends, I pulled it gently so that it started to unravel for a more coastal feel. I tied one of the trinkets to it with some Linen Thread.

The Hibiscus flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink and then I used a Blender Pen to gently move some of the colour around. This method was also used on the leaves (Garden Green ink). The centre of the flower is coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker with some Wink of Stella on the stamen.

Sneak Peek of Tropical Oasis

Tonight I am sharing some new product that will be available in January in the upcoming Mini catalogue. This is the Tropical Oasis Suite and it is super cool and will be very popular!

Just check out this amazing Designer series paper!

Tropical Oasis Suite by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia. Mini catalogue 2020...jpg

The flesh of the pineapple I die cut in Crushed Curry card stock and used a sponge dauber to add some Mango Melody ink to it to give that extra tone. The sentiment is also stamped in the same ink and I daubed the edges with the ink too! The pineapple top is cut in Garden Green card stock and vellum and layered together, slightly offset.

Pool Party card stock is used for the card base and the die cut for the sentiment.

Check back next week for some more ideas using this suite.

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tulips

One week to Christmas, where has this year gone? It has flown by so quickly and the kids finish school on Friday, so they will be around to help out prior to Christmas Day celebrations and my brother-in-laws home. What are you doing for Christmas?

Tonight I have a sneak peek of the Stamp set we received at OnStage last month, Timeless Tulips. It also has a coordinating punch, so no need to fussy cut the tulips, yay!

This is a Pear Pizzazz card base and then stamping onto Whisper White with Pear Pizzazz and Rococo Rose ink. Stamp 3 extra large tulips and 2 leaves and punch out. Add these with dimensionals once the card is put together. Linen thread is wrapped around twice and tied in a bow. The sentiment is also from the same set and added with mini dimensionals.

I hope you are ready for Christmas, then early next year, Stampin’ Up!s Sale-a-bration begins!

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!!! 😉

Deer with gold foil antlers is divine

Yikes, only two weeks until Christmas Day 😲 🎄🎁

Have you finished your Christmas cards yet? I have already got mine in the mail, but I still have a couple left to do for people nearby. Thank goodness for the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to make is super easy!

I adore this paper of the deer with their gold foil antlers, and I didn’t want to cover it up or cut into it too much; it needs to shine!

The Stitched Nested Label dies in Gold Foil added enough glitz with the Starburst circle on top and the deer sticker. The tinsel behind these elements adds the extra Christmas sparkle.

This one is a simple design with the layered circles in foil, designer paper and embossed card for added interest. The tree with those gorgeous gold stars finishes it off nicely.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

AWHT Blog Hop - Gift Boxes and Bags.jpg

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Tina Gillespie. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

On Saturday 16 November I attended OnStage in Sydney, an event for demonstrators only,  and I created this box for my dear friend Cathy, who picked me up from the airport and allowed me to stay with her and her family on the north shore for 2 nights. We have become wonderful friends through our love of Stampin’ Up! over the last few years and I knew her love for Haigh’s Chocolates, so I wanted to get some for her as a thank you!

IMG_0337.jpg

I knew it had to be fairly large to fit a couple of packs of chocolates inside, so I started with the base of the box. I placed it on the Simply Scored and placed one pack of the chocolates in the centre to see where the scorelines needed the be. I used a piece of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper, 12″ x 11¼” and scored each side at 3¾”. Cut as shown below and add Tear N Tape.

Haighs Gift Box measurements.jpg

The lid is a piece of Silver Foil, 6¾” x 7½” and scored on all 4 sides at 1½”. I love the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and it coordinated perfectly with the blues of this project and I know Cathy loves these colours too!

My next project is a Twist N Close Box, inspired by Sam Hammond, UK. I love how this closes up, it is so clever. I’ve used the Daisy Lane Bundle (pg.23 of Annual Catalogue) to decorate it with the Woven Threads DSP.

Here’s what it looks like open and closed from the top view. I plan on sharing these in my 2020 classes.

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

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.

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.
