Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

My project today uses the brand new Carols of Christmas stamp set and the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits (purchased together as a bundle, you save an extra 10%). These will be available in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue released in September but if you join my team, you can get them now. Ask me how!

So here is my card for this week using this stamp set.

Heart of Christmas Week 9 using Stampin Ups Carols of Christmas by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia AWHT Handmade card 3D DIY.JPG

I have used Tranquil Tide and Silver as my colour combination for this card.

Those little deer are stamped in Basic Grey on Whisper White, as I originally die cut them in the silver foil, but it was just too much silver!

The sentiment is embossed in Silver and that ribbon is new in the Annual catalogue too. Isn’t it pretty?

The sentiment inside the card is from the Star of Light stamp set and few more die cuts at the bottom. The green piece was on off cut from another project where I used the Lots of Labels Framelits (a full product list is below).

I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.

Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 8

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 8 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the new At Home with You stamp set and the coordinating At Home Framelits (purchased together as a bundle, you save an extra 10%)!

Heart of Christmas card using Stampin Ups At Home with You by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia.JPG

The Brick Wall Textured impressions embossing folder was used to create the background with Crumb Cake card and I sponged the edges and across the grout lines with a sponge dauber and coordinating ink.

Check out the red door? Yes, it actually opens! This is super cool and there is a die in the set that actually creates this. I love the wreath and the holly above the door; it really gives that Christmas feel. I can almost imagine a warm fire glowing inside the door!

The red glimmer paper was punched with the 1/8th Handheld Circle punch and adhered to the little trees with Tombo multipurpose glue. I think these baubles look so pretty in the glimmer! I love the door mat too, which I stamped Merry Christmas in Versamark ink and gold embossed it.

Goodbye Succulents

Dear Crafters,

Wow, can you believe it is already May?!!! Neither can I and that means it’s the month for celebrating our wonderful mums!

So, today I am sharing two cards that I have made for Mother’s Day, using the retiring Succulent Garden Suite 😦 I know I am not the only one who is upset by this suite retiring, I think nearly every Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is also sad.

If you also love this suite, be quick, as it is only while stocks last.

Favourite Retiring Products Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 annual and 2017 occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You have come to me from the talented, Rachel Palmieri!

Now let’s get started!

For my first project, I have used my favourite suite, Cupcakes and Carousels!

Carousel Birthday Card using Stampin Up Cupcakes & Carousel Birthday DSP, Up & Away thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Melbourne. #Occasions2017 3D

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper. It is so bright and colourful and definitely in my colours that I really love to work with. Don’t the layers look wonderful?!

The carousel is gold embossed twice. The bottom layer was directly onto the square white card and the second was die cut with the circle die. Not sure if you can see that lovely gold shine?

The cupcakes are stamped and die cut and added with dimensionals.

I cased this from a card I saw browsing Pinterest by Crafty Little Peach.

My favourite products from the annual catalogue would have to be the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. This was the very first Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I purchased in my starter kit and has always been a favourite. I’m not sure I will ever be able to give it up!

In this card, I have also used the retiring Elegant Butterfly punch, Lovely Lace TIEF, the Subtles Designer Series Paper and the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon.

and those gorgeous mini pearls… they won’t be around any more either, but don’t fear, the packs have been reconfigured and will return in a different format!

This card is the same design as the one above, however, I have used the retiring Happy Hearts TIEF (this really was one of my favs!).

Masking Technique with Superman!

Dear Crafters,

Following all the excitement of OnStage, today I am sharing a card that we made at my Masculine class last week.

Masking Technique using Stampin Ups Everyday Hero Superman Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I love the buildings in this stamp set, but having just the one layer of buildings, just didn’t seem to do my card justice, so I added many layers using the masking technique!

Most of the ladies just looked at me as though, “you have to be kidding”, when I showed them what we were about to make, especially with the fussy cutting around the character, but I think they actually were very impressed with their final works!

What do you think of this card?

Products Used:

Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Basic Black
Stamp Sets: Everyday Hero
Inks: Basic Black, Crushed Curry
Other: Tombo Multipurpose Glue, Trimmer, Stampin’ Scrub, Paper Snips, Clear Block, Bone Folder, Dimensionals, Stampin Write Markers

Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card using the Succulent Garden Suite. I have to say, I was very happy with how this turned out, as it was reasonably quick to create and I can see myself making loads more in this simple, but effective layout. The flower was what took the time, but once you have made one, you can put them together quite fast.

Succulent Garden Suite by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia. #occasions2017 DIY 3D Glimmer 1

The succulent is made of 2 of each of the 3 largest petals and 2 of the smaller daisy type dies. I sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink using a sponge dauber. A bone folder was used to curl the edges under before joining the flowers together. I found by putting the flowers together in pairs first and then each of the 4 pairs together to make the one giant flower was the easiest!

The Designer Series Paper is double sided, so I cut one piece to be 14.5cm x 10cm, then I cut it through the centre at about 8cm, turned one piece over and joined them together on the card! This is a very quick and effective way to decorate the background. Then I added a strip of glimmer paper over the join.
