Final Heart of Christmas inspiration for 2019

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Here we are at Week 16 and our final Heart of Christmas weekly Hop. I hope you have enjoyed everything we have shown you and you have been inspired to create this festive season.

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley has been such amazing value to create masses of Christmas cards. I love this golden glitz metallic tree with the angel on top!

These gorgeous berry sprigs are stickers and I love how they coordinate with the designer paper. The stitched squares dies make layering easy and here I have raised them up on dimensionals on the angle in a diamond shape!

I adore these little deer stickers and the gold star embellishments. They just add that extra sparkle to your cards.

Red Roses for Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

We are back for another week of Heart of Christmas and again I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite.  

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are super pretty and as you will see, when coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, you can create some amazing Christmas projects. You can also purchase the Stamp set and dies as a bundle saving 10% (#153947), but they are only available while stocks last.

I really love the richness of this card and the pop of colour of the featured rose.

Coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake and Colour Lifter. The berries also have some Glittery Crystal Effects for added shine.

Christmas product for a rosey birthday

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Even thought this is a Christmas suite of products, it doesn’t have to necessarily be used for Christmas cards. I am sharing a card tonight that I have made for a family member who loves flowers, especially roses and as soon as I saw this paper I knew it had to be used for her birthday card. This card is super simple and for the Beginner Stamper in mind, as it is mainly using the gorgeous Designer Paper as the focus.

Using another of the Ornate Frames Dies adds a gorgeous filigree pattern for the sentiment to be stamped in metallic ink.  Wrapping some Gold ribbon around the centre over the paper joins and adding a bow in the same ribbon.

The inside of the card has some more of the same Designer Paper glued to a strip of Cherry Cobbler card and glued to some Whisper White card.

Tis the Season for Roses

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight’s Heart of Christmas card is using the Christmastime is Here Suite available until the end of November. It is a really beautiful suite of products, especially if you love roses!

This image is actually die cut from one of the sheets of the Designer Paper. That certainly makes things easier, although I do enjoy colouring, but sometimes you just need to get things done in a hurry, right?!!

The card base is Mossy Meadow with another piece of card cut 5mm shorter to layer on top. This piece is embossed with the Scripty 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Glue a piece of DSP to the left and wrap the ribbon around and tie is a knot. Now glue this layer to your card.

Christmastime is Here Suite, Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia.jpg

The sentiment is stamped in metallic ink onto a frame from the Ornate Frames Dies, which you can find in the Holiday catalogue (pg53). So many sentiments fit into these dies and they are a must have addition to your craft room!

Add some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and you have a wonderful card to send a loved one this Christmas.

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.

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!

Heart of Christmas: Week 2

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Here we go – Week 2 of the Heart of Christmas for 2019!

Brightly Gleaming Suite again – sorry, but I adore this suite and you will be seeing loads of projects with these amazing products. This card is so super simple and easy to make in multiples.

The A5 card base (4-1/8″ x 11-11/16″) is Pretty Peacock with two strips of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP; 2″ x 5-7/8″ and 3/4″ x 5-7/8″. Glue these to the front starting with the larger one, lining it up, flush on the left side.

Now you can add the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements (two branches) and the bauble. Tie a small piece of copper metallic thread through the top of the bauble and place the ends in the centre of the branches before adding the Star Designer Element to hold it in place. 

Stamp the sentiment (Christmas Gleaming) on Very Vanilla card with the Celestial Delicata Copper ink pad and cut it out with scissors and adhere to the card with dimensionals.

This Designer paper really is the star of the card and you really don’t need to be an avid crafter to create these projects. This is a wonderful card for the Beginner stamper.

Heart of Christmas: Week 1

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Here we go again! If you have been following my blog for a while, you may recall the Heart of Christmas weekly inspiration we did last year. Well, we are starting it again here with Week 1 of the Heart of Christmas for 2019!

This is a brilliant way to start creating those cards for Christmas, as so often we think we have loads of time later on, but time just passes by and then we struggle to create in bulk before the big day. Starting earlier and join us, being inspired by the amazing creations of our team ladies and start your journey today.

Tonight I am sharing a sneak peek of some new product coming in the Holiday catalogue available to purchase in 2 weeks! These were the very first products added to my shopping cart when I browsed the catalogue; I just loved the entire suite and had to have it all.

I am beginning with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper, Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements, Star Designer Elements, along with the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.

Christmas card 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

This paper has gorgeous copper foil accents on one side of each of the sheets of paper and it is stunning. I was drawn to the colours in this pack; Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, Very Vanilla, Copper Foil.

I  love the embellishments that also come in this suite. The tiny stars and the foil elements that you just add to your project with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

So in love with Peter Rabbit of Fable Friends

Today, I have one of the cutest stamp sets in the new Occasions catalogue, Fable Friends. It has Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle duck images and these absolutely take me back to my childhood. My Nanna (who passed away in 1980) even cross-stitched both of these for my sister and myself when we were young children. I still have it and it’s so precious to me, so when I saw this in the catalogue it was straight on my list!

Fable Friends & Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

My card base is Balmy Blue, embossed using the new Lace Dynamic TIEF. The So Saffron circle is die cut using the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and the leaves are from the same set, cut in Soft Sea Foam. The flower is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set which coordinates with these framelits.

Peter Rabbit is stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut him so he sat on top of the yellow die cut. I added a couple of little pearl embellishments for his buttons.

The Organdy Balmy Blue ribbon can be earned for FREE with any $90 order and it comes with 4 other coloured rolls of ribbon in the one pack!!! Great value freebie!

Paper Loop Decorations

Today, I have some cute Paper Loop Decorations that I have made with some retired Stampin’ Up! products, but I have a link below for our current DSPs that will only be available until 2 January, so get in quick.

They are so pretty and more flower-like than many other tutorials out there, which are mainly snowflakes shapes.  I made these for my close friends who catch up most Fridays for coffee!
