Christmas Season Pinecones & Berries

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!

I was pleased with this card as it came together. I adore that pretty patterned DSP with the berries (Painted Christmas), so that was my starting point for this card, as I built up the background layers.

Christmas Season Seasons Greetings by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped some of the berries (Real Red & Evening Evergreen ink) to compliment the patterned paper and some greenery (Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen inks), but it still needed more, so I stamped four pinecones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

Christmas to Remember Tag 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!

Tonight I have a card very similar to one Michele shared recently. I got these Tailor Made Tags dies for my birthday at the end of August and couldnt wait any longer to get them out and have have a play.

christmas-to remember-tailored-tags-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-australia-2021.png

This gorgeous patterned paper, Painted Christmas, is beautiful on both sides of each sheet. I used the red foil from the Red & Green Foil Sheets pack along the top and bottom edges of the paper behind the tags. One tag is cut with the pincecone paper and the top tag just has a small section across the bottom, leaving room for the stamped sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) in Evening Evergreen ink. The Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and small piece of retired gold thread are placed through the top of the tags.

One the tags were tied together, I added some dimensionals and adhered them to the card, before adding some 2021–2023 In Color Jewels to complete my card.

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 am using the Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper and the Christmas Season Bundle and that beautiful White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

Christmas Season & Tidings of Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The label is die cut in Sahara Sand, one of the colours in this Designer Paper and before removing the card from the die after running through the machine, I flipped it over and ran a stylus around thr edges to get that lovely embossed border. The leaf images are stamped in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. Check out that gorgeous shiny silver foil star (Stitched Stars dies)! A few Rhinestone Jewels were dotted around.

HOC Week 13 – Lots of Penguin Playmates Cards

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!

My cards tonight are all quite easy to create using the Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ Designer Papers. Many of the images on the patterned papers can be cut using the Penguin Builder Punch or fussy cut with Paper Snips to create some gorgeous cards this Christmas.

Penguin Playmates DSP Saleabration 2021 Kate Morgan Australia

Penguin Playmates DSP JD21

These two cards are easily made with two pieces of patterned paper, cut diagonally in both directions, then pieced together so you have two patterns on each card. This is such an effective way to create multiples of the same design, but by changing up the card base (Fresh Freesia & Soft Sea Foam) and embellishments, can bring a different look!

Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 1   Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2

The Just Jade card base and stamped sentiment really brings out the scarf of the penguin. How gorgeous are these Wonderful Snowflakes too?!!!

IMG_6757

The Fresh Freesia card base is stamped with the snowflakes stamp from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. Four squares measuring 4cm x 4cm are glued in place and a circle (Layering Circles Dies) cut from another sheet of the patterned paper has some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon behind it before being added with dimensionals. A penguin is also popped up and some faux resin dots added. The sentiment (Christmas to Remember) is cut out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and some ink added around the edges with sponge daubers.

IMG_6749

This card heavily features the Scalloped Contours dies cut with different patterned papers an layered. The spotty layer has some slits around the edges, which I have threaded the ribbon through to help hold it in place.  The sentiment is from the Penguin Place stamp set.

IMG_6754

This next card use some of the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty Paper; a must have item during SAB!

Be Dazzling Specialty Paper Saleabration 2021 Kate Morgan Australia

This card was created using up some strips of patterned paper that were off cuts from other projects. The Christmas Trees die cut, Scalloped Contours die cut and the gingham bow were also sitting on my desk and I was determined to use them up, so that is how this card came together. I had the strips of DSP sitting across the card behind the dotty layer, but I felt it needed something else, so out came the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper and cut a few narrow strips. Wow, adding them made all the difference. I was actually quite pleased with the outcome!

Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 6

The Penguin Builder Punch cut these little cuties directly from the patterned paper. I did stamp the scarves (Fresh Freesia, Misty Moonlight, Soft Seam Foam) and fussy cut them with Paper Snips before gluing to each penguin. I then added some Fine Tip Glue for a glossy finish, but it reacted with the ink  and once dry it doesn’t look great, but hey, hopefully the recipient won’t mind. The penguins are popped up on dimensionals to create my penguin tree! Finally I added some Faux Resin Dots.

IMG_6732

Are you sick of all these cards yet?!!!

This will be the last one for today, I promise.  This card uses the Encircled in Beauty Dies to create that gorgeous medallion which was my starting point for this card. I then used some layers of DSP that left over from other projects (can you tell I am determined to use up every piece?). The Stitched Rectangles dies was used to create the narrow dotty border to create a frame. The fussy cut images are added with dimensionals and some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems added to finish it off.

Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 9

All of these cards were made over the past couple of days. I am currently on annual leave and seeing as we are still in lockdown with not much else to do, I have been busy crafting, can you tell?!! But I have been able to really build up my stash of cards ready to send out to my family and friends early this Christmas!!!

My card base is Fresh Freesia and the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty paper was added in two small strips down each side on the front of the card.

The images on the front of this card have been fussy cut from one of the sheets of the DSP. The penguin on the right side has been punched out of the sheet of DSP using the Penguin Builder Punch. I also punched out another penguin in Thick Basic White card and glued it behind to add more strength before placing three dimensionals behind it and adding it to the card. This is how the card sits up, by placing the edge of the card behind the penguin.

The Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments was coloured on the shiny side using the Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Marker and glued to the card.

The sentiments are from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. I fussy cut a fox to place on the inside with the sentiment.

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 have got my inspiration from one of my team members, Amie McIroy, Eager to Stamp who lives in Western Australia.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP meets Peaceful Deer Handmade Christmas Card HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Christmas 2021

I just adore this Specialty paper; the colours and the extra sparkle!

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

My card base is Mint Macaron with a layer of the DSP. A strip of card was cut to size and some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon wrapped across and secured behind, before it was glued to the card. The Label Me Lovely punch was used to punch out the Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card. The pink layer I cut in half horizontally and glued behind the green punch to create the border. Then I ran it through my embossing machine in the Evergreen Forest 3D TIEF and added it to my card on dimensionals. The deer is punched from the Silver Foil and added with dimensionals also.

The holly (Whimsical Trees Bundle) is stamped, die cut and coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.

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 have made cards using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is just stunning with the holographic accents and the non-traditional colours for Christmas.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

These colours really appeal to me and I couldn’t wait to add them to my order.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies with Misty Moonlight card, I die cut the background label, then added a piece of Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon with some Stampin’ Seal, then one of the Wonderful Snowflakes on a dimensional, then a stamped Mint Macaron tree.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021 inside

Card 2 – For this card, I covered the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal around the edges and a big X through the centre, before I cut 5/8″ x 6″ strips of the patterned paper. I added them from the top of the card and worked my way down using the extra length on either side to help place them and line them up perfectly. Don’t worry that they overhang, as once all the strips are adhered, cut off the excess using the Trimmer or Paper Snips. This is a great way to show all the patterns in a pack of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 1 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

The trees are die cut in Basic White, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron. The stars are Blushing Bride and the tinsel is some of the new 12″x12″ Silver Foil. This comes in 3 shades snd this is the middle one, that has a slightly pinkish/purple shade to it.
