Metallic Deer for a Masculine Christmas card

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 29 – Misty Moonlight

This would have to be my all time favourite blue in the history of Stampin’ Up! colours. It goes with everything and it happens to be my dad’s favourite colour, so this card will be for him!

The Deer Builder Punch is so easy to use with the Silver Foil. I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind it on two strips of the Whimsy and Wonder Specialty DSP (unfortunately this has sold out, but you could use any patterned paper really).

The sentiment is stamped on an offcut piece of Basic White cardstock and and snip the ends to reflect a banner.

A Basic White card insert on the inside is decorated with some Misty Moonlight cardstock and a narrow strip of the holigraphic striped DSP.

Week 28 – Mint Macaron

I just adore this gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper with it’s shiny accents and I have used it in different ways on this card. A strip matted on some Polished Pink cardstock down the centre then a die cut piece behind the sentiment. Both of these are cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The presents are cut from the patterned paper too!

The word Joy was stamped multiple times and I just eyeballed it. You could probably use the Stamparatus to line them up properly if you wanted to.

Here are a few more designs using this same suite of products; the first few are the same design with various patterned papers from the same pack. Very easy for making multiples of and just add different embellisments.

Eden’s Garden Collection for Christmas cards

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am featuring the new exclusive early release Eden’s Garden Collection from the upcoming 2022 Mini catalogue but these are available to purchase now! In this collection there is the Eden’s Garden Cling stamp set and Eden dies (can be purchased as a bundle to save more), the Ever Eden Specialty DSP, Garden Gems and Ever Eden Cotton Paper.

Card 1 – starting with a white card base, I added two strips of the Ever Eden Specialty DSP on each side. I cut the darker centre strip to 3″ wide and added Gold Metallic paper strips on both sides, before glueing to the centre of the card.

Some Eden die cuts were added behind the sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) in Evening Evergreen ink on a Label Me Lovely punched piece of Soft Succulent card. Some Garden Gems compete be card.

Card 2 – An Evening Evergreen card base with a layer of Soft Succlent card, stamped randomly with the leaves from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This was then embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing folder and I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber and same colour ink. I stamped the larger image on Basic White card and die cut (Seasonal Labels dies).

Eden's Garden NOEL Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Three strips of the Ever Eden SDSP were added then the die cut stamped image. A Gold Foil die cut was then added with the Playful Alphabet “NOEL”. I added some Foam Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Evening Evergreen card before diecutting each letter. This makes it easy to remove the backing paper and add to the card!

Easy Tidings of Christmas card

Tonight is a very simple card with Tidings of Christmas designer paper, Red and Green Foil die cuts and a stamped sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. Sorry about the fuzzy/rough edges of my cardbase, think I may need a new blade on my Paper Trimmer 😜

Holly Jolly Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Seasonal Labels dies have both these fancy layering labels and the Red Foil one was die cut from the centre of the large background Red Foil layer so as not to waste it (it gets covered up)!

Using the various dies in this pack, I alternated the sizes between Basic White and Silver Foil (the purple toned sheet).  There is also one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind the sentiment layer, can you spot it?!!

The sentiment is from Peaceful Deer stamp set and is stamped in Smoky Slate ink to coordinate with the card base. I used a Sponge Dauber to add ink around the edges of the patterned paper layer, Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Soft Succlent ribbon tied in a double bow with some Genial Gems finished my project off beautifully.
