Brightly Gleaming Dashing Deer

Tonight is a copper detailed deer from the Annual catalogue. I’m really pleased it carried over from last Christmas, as it has been a favourite of mine. I am teaming it up tonight with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer paper from the current Holiday catalogue. Don’t you just love all those foil elements?!

Did you notice these Ornate Frames dies in the Halloween section? Here in Australia, Halloween is not as big as in the USA, and I don’t create for the occasions, but these really looked fabulous and I got them to use for sentiments. You wouldn’t believe how many different stamp sets fit into them!!!

The Delicata Celestial Copper ink looks fab on dark card as do the leafy foil elements behind the sentiment. On the inside, I simply added some more of the ribbon wrapped around a strip of Night of Navy card and adhered it all to some Very Vanilla card stock.

Brightly Gleaming Bookmark Card

Tonight’s card is a gift and card all in one; a bookmark card!

I used this particular piece of Designer Paper, so the bookmark can be used all year round and doesn’t just reflect Christmas!

Card base: 10¾” x 5¾”, score at 4¼”. Rotate 180o and score again at 2¼” then perforate this line. Insert the smaller end into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch so the edge lines up with the perforation. Trim off the excess. Then decorate with Designer Paper, stamps, punches, ribbons and trims!

Heart of Christmas is the Most Wonderful Time

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 39 in the Holiday catalogue is featured again tonight.  

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.JPG

I cannot tell you how quick it has been to create cards with this medley. You can pretty much cut up different pieces of DSPs from the pack to different sizes and just add them to your cards as they all coordinate. I start doing this and then work out what size I want the feature piece to be. In this first card, I wanted a square and because I chose the DSP with the trees, I thought it would be perfect to stamp the smaller tree and add the reindeer.

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue..jpg

The banner stickers make adding sentiments super fast too!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

This next card I kept the DSP to one larger piece and added the feature in the centre with some ovals. The tree in the centre is a sticker and I just added some of the tinsel trim around it and a Copper Star Element on top.

The sentiment is stamped in the Golden Glitz Delicata metallic ink on Thick Whisper White card.

The Most Wonderful Time is Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 39 in the Holiday catalogue is awesome and you get all of these items to create as many projects that you can come up with. It is wonderful value with a full stamp set, coordinating dies, as well as all the papers and embellishments.

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.JPG

The only extra things you need are ink, glue, card bases and clear blocks for your stamps, but I’m sure you have these things at home already!

You won’t believe how quick and easy it is to make cards – I was able to make 7 cards in one morning! I stamped and die cut lots of the trees and presents and then had them on hand ready to add to my cards. Sometimes it’s easier to do this and then you have spares on hand to add to future projects and same time inking and cleaning in between.

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

Look how shiny and bright that gold foil star is, atop the tree!

I just adore the gold foil accent on all of the pieces of Designer Paper in this pack. It is simply stunning.

For this card I added some of the Snowfall Accent Puff Paint to the tree!

Merry Christmas Star for Heart of Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight I have a gorgeous, sparkling copper star for you using the Brightly Gleaming suite again. Yes, I love it and how can you not love this copper foil in the Designer Paper?! The large Foil Element Star is glued to some Night of Navy card stock and I cut it out with paper snips, as I didn’t want the small stars on the DSP to show through. I added it with dimensionals to lift it up and placed another small Star Designer Element in the centre. Do you see that very thin strip of Copper across the card? Well that is cut from the edging of the sheet that the Foil Element Star came off!

How gorgeous does the stamped image look behind the sentiment? I reckon it is the perfect length for it and the copper on navy is so rich.

Christmas is the Most Wonderful Time of the year

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Oh wow, have you seen the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 39 in the Holiday catalogue? You need to check it out!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.JPG

The only extra things you need are ink, glue, card bases and clear blocks for your stamps, but I’m sure you have these things at home already!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue

I lashed out and purchased the Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic ink pad as well, which you can see I have used for the stars, ribbons on the presents and also around the edges of the Red & gold star card stock. Initially this was white with gold starts, but I found it way to bright, so I sponged it with Real Red ink.  The star on top of the tree was cut from this same piece of card before I sponged it, and the hole is hidden by the tree!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, 2019 Holiday catalogue

This one uses more gold with the foil frame and the white background is embossed with the Scripty Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.

The lighting wasn’t great getting that sentiment but it’s the Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic ink.

This card has a piece of DSP cut 5mm short of the card size and I used the circle punch to cut the circle out before gluing the DSP to the card for the featured candy canes to sit in. How cute is that tinsel?!!!

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue..jpg

Even though the candy canes and the banner are stickers, you can still add dimensionals to pop them up for extra dimension. You wouldn’t think these were even stickers, as the quality is amazing!

Heart of Christmas: Week 6

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

This week I am taking a break from the Brightly Gleaming Suite and using some of the products from the Annual catalogue, and they are not even Christmas sets!

Can you believe this is the Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating Nature’s Roots dies?

Christmas card using Stampin Up Rooted in Nature by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.jpg

It is simply stamped images loads of times and then a few extras which I die cut and added with Tombo glue and/or dimensionals. I also added the new Shimmery Crystal Effects to four of the trees (the two Seaside Spray ones & two Night of Navy ones).

How gorgeous is that Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon? It is super soft and pliable to create the bow and has a silver thread through it. Wrap the ribbon around the card layer and where you are going to tie the bow, place a glue dot under it to hold it knot while you have your hands free to tie the bow. A really great tip I’ve learned along the way!

I haven’t put any sentiments on these as yet, as I am waiting on an order to arrive with more appropriate Christmas greetings.

Heart of Christmas: Week 4

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight’s Heart of Christmas card is a very simple one cased from Linda Dalke. 

The holly image is stamped twice in Pretty Peacock ink in two corners before adding the centre piece over the top on dimensionals.

The Night of Navy card layer under the Designer Series Paper with the two baubles stamped in copper ink and punched out, also added with dimensionals. I love the knots of ribbon added to each one. The sentiment is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink on Very Vanilla card and added with Tombo Mulitpurpose glue.

Heart of Christmas – Week 3 with a Bookmark card and instructions!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Today has been a big start to the release of the Holiday catalogue – click the image to download your copy and start shopping – you won’t be disappointed!

2019 Holiday catalogue image Craft with Kate

Tonight I have a 4″ x 4″ bookmark card using the Brightly Gleaming Suite. 

Bookmark card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming suite by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

Start with a Mossy Meadow card base 10¾” x 4⅛”.
Score at 4¼” then turn the card 90o and score again at 2¼” and then perforate this line.
Insert the smaller end into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch so the edge lines up with the perforation, punch, then trim off the excess.

Bookmark card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming suite by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue open

To decorate:
1 x DSP to 3⅞” x 3⅞”.
1 x DSP 2” x 4” and punch with the scallop tag topper punch and glue to the bookmark.
1 piece 3” x 3” for the front and 1 piece 4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla card for the inside. Rub the edges of the 3″ x 3″ card with the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink pad.
Stamp the holly images (Mossy Meadow ink) and fussy cut before adhering to the Very Vanilla square with dimensionals. Punch 2 x small baubles from DSP and 1 x larger one in Copper Foil, then emboss it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Stamp the sentiments in the Celestial Copper ink. On the inside of the card, the string is actually created by running the edge of a metal ruler on the Celestial Copper ink pad and using it as a stamp!
Finish off with a coordinating piece of ribbon. I used a bambi stapler to hold it.

and here’s a coordinating bon bon but slightly smaller than the one I shared in last week’s Christmas Blog Hop (you can see the instructions here). The only difference is that I made this one shorter starting with 8″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. All the other instructions are the same!

Christmas Blog Hop with the Art with Heart Team

Art With Heart Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on 4 September.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Claire Daly. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I have made a card and a coordinating Christmas Bon Bon for tonight’s hop using the Brightly Gleaming Suite of products from the new Holiday catalogue.

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

My Night of Navy card base (29.7cm x 10.5cm) is folded in half. I added a piece of DSP and then a piece of vellum. I stamped the holly in Mossy Meadow ink onto Very Vanilla card twice. I coloured the leaves with the AquaPainter and Mossy Meadow ink. The berries are coloured by putting a bit of the Celestial Copper ink pad onto a clear block and used my Wink of Stella to pick up some of the colour to add to the berries (the photo doesn’t do it justice). The Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements are used for the leaves behind for extra interest.

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan,Australia..JPG

The sentiment is also stamped with the Celestial Copper ink onto Very Vanilla card and cut out using scissors. It is added with dimensionals. Each of the baubles is created using 6 of the small ornament punched pieces, scored in half and joined together with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. A small copper star element is added at the top of each bauble. I used a Copper Sharpie to hand draw the strings.

This next image is directly from the Holiday catalogue and I loved that we can use this amazing specialty paper and the punch to make Christmas Bon Bons. So of course I had to make one too!

2019_HOL_P31_A-11.jpg

So here is mine to coordinate with my card!

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan, Australia..JPG

To make my Christmas Bon Bon with the Brightly Gleaming Suite
I used a piece of 12″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.
Place the 8½” side into the Simply Scored and score at 1¾”, 3½”, 5¼”, 7″.
Gently fold on each scoreline.
Using the smaller of the two ornament punches, push the punch all the way into the DSP, centring it on each scoreline and punch on both sides (Keep these punched pieces to make a card).
Place the 12″ side in the Simply Scored, and carefully score both ends at 1½”.

Gently fold on the scorelines so that the short ends are folded back onto the side you want showing.
Fold the Bon Bon into the tube shape and push it down flat with the shorter end on the inside.
Place a strip of Tear & Tape along the edge, and join them together (you may need to insert the punch again to punch out the 1/2 punched shapes).
Push in the ends and tie some of the ½” Classic Weave Ribbon into a bow, but remember to add your treats before you do!
