Christmas, Designer Series Paper, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

Rustic Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today I continue my Christmas inspiration from the Holiday catalogue using the Musical Season Bundle and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I wanted to do a more rustic Christmas card, but still using some traditional colours for Christmas. I have gone with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake!

I love how this sentiment stamped in the Black Memento ink looks with the stamped off Cherry Cobbler Lyre behind! I sponged the edges of this piece with a sponge dauber and crumb cake ink to soften the edges. It is mounted up on Cherry Cobbler card with the ribbon running between them.

Again, I couldn’t leave the little drummer boy off the card, so I stamped him on the inside and on the envelope!

Peace on Earth

Dear Crafters,

Whoa, can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas?!!!!

On Monday I shared some quick and easy Christmas cards, and this is another one using similar products, but instead I’m using the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Some glimmer paper is added a a banner behind the sentiment for some Christmas sparkle and the enamel embellishments are actually left over from last years catalogue, but are the perfect accents.

The inside of the card is stamped with the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set. A strip of Silver glimmer paper is added at the bottom.

It’s a Musical Season this Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more Christmas inspiration for you from the Holiday catalogue using the Musical Season Bundle and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I just adore this little drummer boy and the instruments die cut with silver foil are just perfect. I added some ribbon across both corners, almost like wrapping a present!

I love how this sentiment stamped in the rich Cherry Cobbler looks with the stamped off Smoky Slate Lyre behind! I stamped this same thing on the inside of both these cards.

The washi tape and the ribbon are both retired, but you can swap them for any other coordinating products you may have in your stash!

The sentiment below was created on a banner using the Triple Banner Punch.

Quick cards so close to Christmas!

Dear Crafters,

Who can believe it is already mid-December? Not me and I am not ready for Christmas to  be here just yet. So I still want to share some of my quick and easy cards for those who still haven’t had time to make them. I’m using the Quilted Christmas DSP and the Merry Little Labels stamp set.

These cards are basic cutting, stamping and layering.

The Heart of Christmas, Week 27: At Home with You

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 27 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team! This is our final post of Christmas Inspiration for the Heart of Christmas. I hope you have enjoyed my projects each Wednesday for the past 27 weeks! It sure was fun and a great way to build up my stash of Christmas cards. Now to write in them all and post them off with my yearly newsletter!

My project today focuses on the At Home with You stamp set and coordinating framelits.

Christmas Card using Stampin Up At Home with You by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

I embossed the crumb cake card with the Brick Wall TIEF and then used a sponge dauber with coordinating ink to give the wall some texture. I added a small piece of Basic gray cardstock to the bottom to look like pavement. I think it worked really well. The door is stamped with Black Memento ink onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock and die cut.

The pot plants are coloured with the new Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside of the card I added a small piece of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi tape with another pot plant image.

I love these cute little Boxwood Wreath embellishments and the Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched ribbon, tied in a bow, to finish it off.

Welcome to Week 22 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Don’t you just love the layers and texture of this card? I love how the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured impressions embossing folder gives such a deep impression as the background and then coordinates so well with the black and white leaf layer of dsp!

The Triple banner punch makes creating banners so quick and easy and perfect. I certainly cannot get them so perfect without this punch!

Adding the layer of silver glimmer adds a touch of class, as does the two little black rhinestones!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 21: Beachy Little Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Beachy Little Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

I began by stamping the shell images on the base card with the coordinating Crumb Cake ink. Next I added a small strip of the Merry Little Christmas Designer series paper and a piece of burlap ribbon.

I stamped the tree image in crumb cake ink and coloured it with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush before die cutting it with the oval and sponging the edge.

The sentiment is also stamped in Crumb Cake ink and sponged the edges before adding it with dimensionals. I think using predominantly crumb cake on this card, resonates with me as being the sand at the beach.

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 20: Carols of Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Carols of Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia

When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!

Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

The Heart of Christmas, week 19 – Christmas Pines & Painted Harvest

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 19 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Painted Harvest & Christmas Pines stamp sets to create this Christmas card!

Heart of Christmas - Color Builder - Artichoke, olive, vanilla, cherry cobbler.jpg

Look at me using Always Artichoke, a colour I very rarely use…. in fact, I think it is the 2nd time ever, that it’s been opened and you know what, I actually don’t mind it for a Christmas colour!

Christmas card using Stampin Up Painted Harvest & Christmas Pines, by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. Fancy #makeacardsendacard

I have stamped the sunflower image in Always Artichoke, and twice with Old Olive. The berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. How pretty is that coordinating double stitched ribbon bow?!!! So pretty!

The Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder just finishes this card off perfectly. I just love that added texture.

I love how versatile our stamp sets can be. Who would have thought to use a sunflower image for a Christmas wreath?!!! Not me…. but there are plenty of amazingly creative people out there on Pinterest who inspired me.
