Heart of Christmas: Simply Elegant

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing another card focusing heavily on this stunning Joyous Noel Designer paper and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer.

I was inspired by a card created by Amy Koenders and it really caught my eye. I used the same piece of DSP (because it is my favourite!) but I changed up the top section and the card base.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamp set and the Classic Label punch to cut it out.

Here’s the inside using another strip of this DSP, Glimmer strip and another glimmer sprig!

This reversible Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon is so soft and stunning and I love it! How pretty does that bow look?!!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Garden Green!!!

I think this Designer Paper is so pretty and lifelike, that I didn’t want to cover it up too much and let it be the hero of this card. I did add a strip of Gold Glimmer and a piece of Cherry Cobbler that has the Stitched Labels framelits die (those little crosses) down one side.

Those berries are the basic pearls coloured with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. The spigs have Wink of Stella on them for that gorgeous glimmer and the Starburst punch is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Merry was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

On the inside, I’ve added two strips; one of DSP and some gold glimmer.

Heart of Christmas: All is Bright this Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today’s card is simple and easy to create multiples of, in a short space of time. Cutting a strip of the All is Bright Designer series paper, layering it on some Gold Foil and gluing it to a card, it’s that simple!

Merry Christmas to All & All is Bright DSP handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Holiday catalogue 2018.

I also stamped the sentiment in one colour and added some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

This took me all of about 5 minutes to make and if you are time poor leading up to this festive season, it could be the answer for you too!

I’m pretty much just using Fresh Fig and Whisper White today, although I did add a hint of other colours with the Artisan Pearl Embellishments. Oh and check out the champagne foil background!!! I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and look what it created… doesn’t it look like Champagne rain? So pretty!

Blog Hop: My favourite products in the Holiday catalogue!

September blog hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the 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 June Kempster. 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 am using some of my favourite products from this catalogue; Dashing Deer Bundle and the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with its stunning copper foil accents. I also love the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in 6″ x 6″ and in 3 colours; Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide. I have used 2 of these in my projects today!

My first project is a card using Gray Granite as the base. I would never think to use this colour for Christmas, but in fact, it looks amazing and it is one of the colours in the DSP.

Check out the inside of this card though! I have made a banner at the top with some more of this gorgeous Designer Paper by scoring it in the centre and 1″ either side so it folds in to the card with a metal snowflake embellishment hanging from it with copper metallic thread.

My next project is a small gift box that I cased from Pootles in the UK. This stunning reversible ribbon is featured again wrapped around it, tied in a bow, to hold the box closed. This box measures 3¾” high x 3” wide x 1½” deep. You could fit lots of little Christmas chocolates inside, yummy!

I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide Sprigs from the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and added the copper star embellishment with some copper metallic thread hanging down the front.

Heart of Christmas: Joyous Noel is divine

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am sharing more stunning product from the new Holiday Catalogue, which started today! Be sure to request your own copy of the catalogue.

Joyous Noel Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018

I adore this Joyous Noel Designer Series paper with its hints of copper foil, just stunning. My base card is Merry Merlot, embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. A strip of the Joyous Noel DSP is added to the top and some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon… yes, reversible ribbon, is tied in a loose knot and added. I tied the copper star wire element to the ribbon with a small piece of copper metallic thread so it dangles down.

I embossed the sentiment using Versamark ink and Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it. I die cut it out using the Merry Christmas Thinlits die before dragging the edges across the Versamark ink pad and dipping them in the copper embossing powder. How pretty does it look?!

This stamp set is photopolymer, so they are easy to line up perfectly every time, and look how crisp the sentiment is, just perfect!!!

Merry Christmas to All

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I have more sneak peek products from the new Holiday Catalogue, starting on 5th September. I feature the Merry Christmas to All Bundle, a stamp set and the coordinating Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

You will notice loads of other new product too; the Festive Farmhouse DSP and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint used on the Christmas die cut… can you see that stunning shimmer?!!! It’s also on the Sprig Punch. I used the AquaPainter to apply the Shimmer Paint directly to the Mossy Meadow cardstock. Such a fun way to add a glittery shine, and while I was punching the sprig, I also punched some from the Champagne Foil to coordinate with the paint.

The Christmas die cut is cut twice, once in Very Vanilla and then in the Mossy Meadow with the Shimmer Paint wash. I slightly offset them when gluing down for the light shadow effect to really make it pop on the dark background.

I coloured the rhinestones with the Darker shade of a Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker. On the inside of the card, I added two small strips of the same Designer Paper down the left side and stamped the words in the centre. Isn’t it a lovely sentiment and the font is divine! I am so impressed with this bundle, it has so many combinations you can choose.

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!

Christmas card using Stampin Ups Musical Season Bundle & Merry Music DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. DIY

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!
