HOC Week 5 – Penguin Playmates Peekaboo card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-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!

It’s almost time that the 2021 July-August Mini catalogue is available to purchase from tomorrow, 3rd August 2021, and tonight I have another sneak peek of some new product and free Sale•a•bration items.

The Penguin Place Bundle (#156789) is under $55AUD and has the stamp set and coordinating punch as part of the bundle.

The Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (#158420) is one of the items you can select from the Sale•a•bration brochure with any $90+AUD order.

It was one of the first items I selected and with the coordinating Penguin Builder Punch (#156452), you can punch out these little fellas from the paper without having a stamp set – although I did use the Penguin Place (#156410) stamp set for the sentiment! I have also used the Picture This Dies (#155559) which cuts out all these circles in one pass through my dfie cutting machine, for the penguins to peek through! The fox & rabbit were cut from the DSP with the Picture This Dies so they were the same size, but popped up on dimensionals. Behind each penguin head, I placed a dimensional for added depth.

On the inside, I have decorated it with the cute polar bear. See how he is half off the card, well he was fussy cut from the edge of the DSP. Just because he wasn’t a full image, don’t throw them out, you can still use them! Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for some sparkle to finish off.

HOC Week 3 – Sneak Peek to the coolest friend ever, Penguins!

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021-22

Each Monday evening until mid-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 share another sneak peek of some new products, the Penguin Place bundle ($54.75AUD). This is a punch bundle and it is adorable. I’m not normally into the cutesy type sets, but this one is cute and can also be used for birthdays with a balloon and bithday sentiments included, so a win-win. In the Sale•a•bration brochure, you can also earn a full pack of 12″ x 12″ Pengiun Playmates DSP that coordinates with this bundle for any order over $90+!

Penguin Place, SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan Australia

The snow hills are stamped in Balmy Blue ink onto the new Snowy White Velvet Sheets ($8.75AUD) and then I used Paper Snips to cut along the edge. The Stitched So Sweetly dies cut out the sentiment. The Penguins were stamped in Black Memento ink using the Stamparatus to ensure I got a nice dark tone by stamping twice. I penguin on the front is fussy cut, but the one on the inside is cut using the Penguin Builder punch! The feet and beak are stamped in Calypso Coral ink and the hat and scarf in Polished Pink ink (fussy cut).

How cute is the inside?!!!

Card 2 – This card predominantly uses the upcoming Sale•a•bration item, Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ DSP, that can be selected for FREE with any $90+ order from 4 August 2021!

The background panels, cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the three cute images are all cut from the DSP! The sentiment is the same one as on the above card, but this time I cut it into three separate sections to glue to each of the three panels.

The Balmy Blue Gems added an extra touch of glimmer and I thought went really well with this colour combination. The White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

Pampered Pets for Christmas, yay or nay?

The Playful Pets Suite is the perfect product for a card for my dear friend who has her own dog walking business. I had to put a little doggy on her Christmas card!

Pampered Pets for Christmas by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

A card base of Whisper White, stamped with Real Red ink. The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the Cherish the Season stamp set and the rest is from the Pampered Pets stamp set.

The Stitched Stars dies are used to cut some Vellum which is sits behind the focal image.

The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is so cute and the Pets Dies cut out the images from the paper. Yes, this dog is cut directly from the paper!

Mini Dimensionals help pop up the dog die cut.

Early Release Quite Curvy Bundle for Christmas

Curvy Classic Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Patterned Paper has some stunning designs, including this pretty one with the sprigs. The Curvy dies has this stunning curved border – one side has the small holes and the other plain. You can use the offcut on another card (see below)!

A card base of Shaded Spruce with a Cherry Cobbler punched 2-1/4″ circle. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, stamped in Shaded Spruce ink, a must have in your craft stash! This is stamped onto Whisper White card and cut out with the Tailed Tag punch.

The sprigs are cut using the Curvy dies, part of the Quite Curvy Bundle. The little bird is stamped in Sahara Sand ink and some Blushing Bride ink added with a Blender Pen. Mini Dimensionals help pop up some of the elements.

This next card looks almost identical, but I have used the ‘other side’ of the curvy die offcut and placed the bird in a slightly different position. Did you notice that?!!!

Colour Creations Showcase – Misty Moonlight – Origami folding and a simple Triangle Christmas card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 28 – Misty Moonlight

This is such a gorgeous rich blue and I think my favourite blue tone in the Stampin’ Up! colours. I am naturally drawn to blue, being my favourite colour!

Tonight I have two cards for you – the first being a card that I had a bit of fun learning to fold some of our Flowers for Every Season DSP in Origami. It isn’t perfect, but I will practice some more to get those nice clean, crisp folds.

This floral paper is perfect for this fold and I was happy with the final look. The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I mounted it onto some white card to frame it on the Misty Moonlight woodgrain patterned paper from the In Color DSP Pack. How beautiful are those Beaded Pearl centres?!!  They finish it off nicely.

My next card is a simple Christmas card using the Snowflake Splendor DSP, Stitched Triangle dies and the Christmas Layers dies for the snowflakes.

The Copper Star Designer Elements on top of the trees add a touch of elegance.

Please head over to Cathy’s blog to see the full list of participants in this week’s Colour Creations Showcase. We would love for you to visit each one and leave some comments if you feel inspired.

Jaded Gold Pines for the Christmas season

The In the Pines Bundle coordinates perfectly with the In Good Taste patterned papers. I also used some of the Just Jade sheets from the 2020-2022 In Color Paper Pack, behind the large tree cutout and also die cut a couple of the smaller trees, as well as a Gold Foil one and Just Jade one.

The layer of Just Jade card is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder before I brushed the edges with the Versamark inkpad. Some Gold emboss powder is added and heat set. This adds the look of an extra layer, without the bulk of extra card. The sentiment is also Gold Embossed and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

Die cut the fancy tree (largest) in the centre top of the woodgrain patterned paper and place some of the Just Jade patterned paper behind it. I selected that stripy patterned piece, as it looks a little like a string of lights or tinsel wrapped around the tree.

The Just Jade Ribbon is tied around the woodgrain layer, and in a bow, before it is adhered to the Just Jade card layer. Then add the smaller trees last.

Some Gold Faceted Gems were added to the tops of the trees.

On the inside, I added some leftover strips of card and patterned paper an another small tree.

I can’t believe I am still finishing off my Christmas cards – I normally have them all done, written messages inside and in the mail by 1 December, eek! Have you mailed your Christmas cards yet?

Partridge in a Pear Wreath

Arrange a Wreath Bundle

My colour combination: Rich Razzleberry – Bermuda Bay – Bumblebee – Whisper White

Using Blending Brushes or a foam sponge roller, add colour directly from the inkpads of each of the feature colours onto a Whisper White strip of cardstock. This will create a beautiful soft background. Before adhering it to the front of your card base, flick some drops of Wink of Stella over it and allow it to dry for a few minutes.

Stamp 4 or 5 pears by inking them up on the Bumblebee inkpad, then take a Sponge dauber to add a little Bermuda Bay ink around the edges to get that two tone colour. Give your stamp a huff of breath to re-activate the ink before stamping onto white card, then cut them out with the coordinating die. Repeat the same process for the bird, starting with Bermuda Bay, then sponge Rich Razzleberry.

Die cut 3 wreaths in each of the colours and glue them together. Add the stamped images with dimenionals, so they pop up a little. Stamp your sentiment and add some Elegant Faceted Gems.
