Tonight I have a fun fancy fold card. It is a landscape bridge fold design but in the slimline style, which is all the rage right now. I love this Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. You may remember it from last year, as it was part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite and it was super popular so it stayed, yay!!!

The only stamping is the two holly leaves which were fussy cut and coloured with the Wink of Stella to pick up a little of the wet Mossy Meadow ink.

The letters are die cut in Pretty Peacock card and added to the sheet of acetate which covers the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I then added Fine Tip Glue to the holly berries and each of the letters for that lustrous shine! A couple of Star Designer Elements are added either side of the Merry.

This card folds flat to fit into a standard DL Business Size envelope!

Measurements:
Card Base: 8¼” x 5½” score short edge at 1”, 1¾”, 3¾”, 4½”
DSP: 8¼” x ⅞” (2) and 8¼” x 1⅞”
Window Sheet: 8¼” x 3¾”

Cherish the Season SITR

Christmas is definitely going to be a different Christmas this year. With the pandemic causing chaos, we are still not out of Stage 4 isolation here in Melbourne. Luckily the weather was rather cold, windy and raining for much of the weekend, so it kept us indoors. Thankfully I have lots of hobbies to keep me occupied 😉

This card uses the Stamparatus and the Cherish the Season stamp set in this lovely combination of colour.

I set up the largest of the bells in the Stamparatus, stamped it once in Gray Granite, before rotating the 4″ x 4″ card 90 degrees and stamping it again, continuing this process of stamping in the round (SITR). Then I added the smaller bell and repeated the process.

Once the stamping was complete, I used the Wink of Stella to colour all the bells (unfortunately the photos don’t show the amazing glimmer it gives). Then I added some colour with Gray Granite and Merry Merlot, picking up some colour from the inkpad using the Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and then heat set. It was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched dies. The tiny bell is die cut in Silver Foil and added with a dimensionals and a little white twine bow added.

The mat layer of Merry Merlot card was embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder before being glued to the card base and the centre layer glued on top.

Most Wonderful Time for Beginner Stampers

Do you sometimes get a bit overwhelmed with product choice, especially when you are starting out?

Well fear no more, because this product medley, has most of the product included in the kit. Just add cardstock, adhesive and inks to complete your projects.

  • The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes these exclusive products:
  • Most Wonderful Time photopolymer stamp set – 11 stamps; suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, d, g)
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
  • 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
  • 7 sticker sheets
  • Gold/white tinsel trim, 10 yards (9.1m)
  • 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
  • 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, AC p. 170)

Product colours: Basic Black, Old Olive, Real Red, White, Gold foil

This card I have kept very simple, aimed at the beginner stamper. A Real Red card base folded in half with a strip of the patterned paper down the centre. This paper has a gold foil accent on the trees, which adds a classy look.

The banner and the deer are both stickers, so very easy to add. Stamp the tree onto a Stitched Oval in Old Olive ink then using the Wink of Stella pen, colour the image while the ink is still wet. This will pick up some of the colour and blend beautifully (I don’t think you can see the glittery look in the photos). Add one of the gold stars to the top of the tree to finish off.

A full list of products can be found at the end of this post.

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.

Christmas Angel by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020 Aug-Dec Mini catalogue Dove of Hope

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!

Christmas Angel by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020 Aug-Dec Mini catalogue Dove of Hope Bauble punch

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 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.

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

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

Cherish the Season in 2020

Oh how I love these Christmas bells!!! The Cherish the Season Bundle includes the Cherish the Season stamp set and coordinating Sounds of the Season dies. Purchase as a bundle saves you 10%.

My background paper is from the 2020-2022 In Colour 6×6 paper pack with a white Stitched Rectangle die cut placed in the centre. The bells are two different sizes; the centre one is slightly larger than the other two. Once these were die cut, I added a little bit of Adhesive sheet to the back to place the holly and berries.

Cherish the Season Christmas Bells Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

I cut the bells again in Just Jade card and Magenta Madness card, so I could remove the holly and berries and glue them into the silver foil bells. The two smaller bells are adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue and the larger centre bell is adhered to the card with dimensionsls

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool, before fussy cutting and adding it with Mini Dimensionals. Three bows are tied in Misty Moonlight Ribbon and adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue. To finish off I added a few Blue Gems, which are stunning!

The 2020 August-December Mini Catalogue will be available to customers early in August, but as a demonstrator, we get an extra month early to order before anyone else. So tonight I am sharing some of the new products I have had fun creating with!

The colours I will be using in tonight’s projects are:

Balmy Blue Misty Moonlight Old Olive White

For my first two cards, I am using only the Designer Paper, no stamping, die cutting or embossing! Two very quick and simple cards using this amazing paper. The designs definitely need little else added to create fantastic Christmas cards. The sentiment is another full sheet of small sentiments and I simply cut the sentiments apart and added then to the card with mini dimensionals. Some of the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems have been used on each of my cards tonight.

Trimming the Town DSP Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

This next card uses the Stamparatus to line up the trees for super easy stamping. The top row of trees were stamped 3 times each before moving the plate on the stamparatus across 2 notches and stamping again. The bottom row was stamped once each to get that look of depth. Some of the coordinating dies were used at the bottom for the snow hills. The sentiment was placed on the clear block and because they are photopolymer, they can be curved on the block to go with the curve of the snow.

In the Pines Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

Have I said how much I love this designer paper?!! The patterns are so beautiful and this card shows off another two of the designs perfectly. The one behind the tree has a diagonal pattern and I thought it was perfect, like the tinsel wrapped around the tree!

In the Pines & Trimming the Town DSP Olive Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

This final card tonight is similar to the previous one, although I have placed some Balmy Blue Glimmer paper behind the die cut image and a small strip across the centre. I also used the new embossing folder on the Balmy Blue panel.

Arrange a Wreath this Christmas

Can you believe it is July already? Where has this year gone?!

Tonight you may not quite be ready for what I am about to share with you, but I have my first Christmas card!

I know it is always a panic towards the end of the year, to be ready for Christmas, as it comes around so fast when we are super busy. I start in July and make one or two cards a week, so by the time 1 December comes, I have a nice little stash of cards to send out in the post.

Anyway here goes!

I  using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty. I have created a square card with a layer of the new In Color, Just Jade textured with the Greenery embossing folder, love it. Then a layer of designer paper from the Flowers for Every Season paper pack.

Christmas card using Arrange a Wreath in Just Jade by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The wreath is die cut in Just Jade and the flowers in Poppy Parade to coordinate with the designer paper. The signage is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Black ink. I attached some Linen Thread so it is hanging from the wreath and added a little bow at the top. These die cut elements are added with dimensionals for that real wreath effect.

Merry Christmas with a twist!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday and you were able to have a quieter day today to recover!

Tonight I have another sneak peek for you with the Country Club Suite available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

My parents have been very keen golfers for many years and all my Dad wanted for Christmas was a handmade card. So, when this suite arrived just before Christmas, I knew I had to use it, but with a twist to make it a Christmas card.

Christmas card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front.jpg

No the tees, golf balls and grass are not upside down LOL, they were deliberately placed like this to look like Christmas baubles hanging down from some greenery!!!

See those golf balls? They are wood elements and I embossed them! Yes, I ran them through my machine using the large golf ball die to get those dimples on the balls!!! Give it a go, the outcome is so cool.

Colours: Garden Green, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy

On the inside, I carried the theme through and added the golf image by colouring it with Stampin’ Write Markers direct to the stamp to get the colouring of the grass, tee and ball!
