Christmas, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Peace on Earth this Christmas

With everything that is going on in the world this year with Covid and in Melbourne we are still in lock-down, I thought this was a rather appropriate card for Christmas 2020.

Dove of Hope & World Map by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Old World Paper 3D embossing folder in the background on the Misty Moonlight card gives a beautiful soft texture and an almost water effect behind the globe.

The globe is die cut from the World of Good DSP which has gold foil accents on it which shine through the layer. I also used some Brushed Foil along the sides of the Seaside Spray panel.

The dove is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink on white card and die cut, then popped up on dimensionals, and check out those gorgeous Blue Gems!!!

On the inside I simply stamped the sentiment and a couple of the baubles for extra Christmas cheer!

Tonight I have a Christmas Angel for you using the Dove of Hope bundle and the Stitched Triangle dies. The card base is White with a layer of Misty Moonlight, then some of the In Good Taste DSP. Check out that texture – it really looks like a painted canvas background!!!!

The Peace, Joy, Love is White heat embossed on Misty Moonlight card, fussy cut and added with mini dimensionals.

To create the Angel – her head is cut out using the 1-1/4″ circle punch which I then put into the Gleaming Ornaments punch to take the top part off for her hair. I coloured this with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends Marker and then glued it back onto the head!

I am terrible at drawing faces, so I used some punches to add some detail. The eyes are punched using the Whale Builder Punch, and her halo is using the Vases Builder Punch in Gold Foil. I did need to draw her tiny mouth using the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.

A simple sentiment stamped in Misty Moonlight and a strip of patterned paper and gold foil adhered to the bottom, finishes the card nicely.

My Aug-Dec Mini catalogue favourite products

Have you had a chance to flip through the new 2020 August-December Mini catalogue and make a list of your favourite Christmas products?

If you haven’t seen the catalogue yet, click the image to download your own PDF copy!

Some of my favourite products are:

Dove of Hope Bundle  – I think this one is a great bundle for our current COVID situation to give hope to all. We are currently in Stage 4 lock-down in Melbourne, we have a curfew of not being out after 8pm and only allowed out to exercise for 1 hour per day. So this bundle gave me comfort and I will be using it heaps.

My card today is a fancy fold design using the Trimming the Town Designer Paper and the Dove of Hope Bundle.

Dove of Hope Bundle

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Place the Old Olive card in the Trimmer with the 13cm side at the top and score at 2.5cm. Fold this over and burnish with a bone folder. This creates the top of the card.

For the inside of the card, take the Whisper white card and glue the 2 pieces of Designer Paper to each side, then glue to the inside of the card base. Stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 i

For the front of the card, place the Poppy Parade piece on the inside in the centre and line it up with the bottom of the card. Holding it carefully in place, add some glue to the top only and fold down the Old Olive flap. Now you can add the Designer Paper (I sponged the edges with Poppy Parade ink).

Trimming the Town DSP

Die cut the pieces of the dove in Whisper White card and glue a small section so the filigree part of the wings sits up a little and is not glued down. Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card. On a small piece of white card, stamp the bauble in Versamark ink, add White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Colour the bauble with Water Painters and ink pads before cutting it out with scissors and gluing it to the card.

Add 3 small rhinestones to the bauble and tie some white ribbon around the top flap and tie in a bow. I placed a glue dot behind the bow to hold it in place.

Measurements:
Old Olive card base – 14.8cm x 13cm
Whisper White card (inside) – 14.3cm x 10cm
Designer Paper (inside) – 10cm x 2.5cm (2 pieces)
Poppy Parade card – 10.3cm x 9.5cm
Designer Paper (front) – 9cm x 7.2cm
