Heart of Christmas: Santa’s Workshop

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a couple of quick Christmas card ideas using the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper. You need to check this out, because if you look closely, can you see the flocking? It is on the snowflakes and looks quite velvety, so pretty!

You can see it better here

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop Santas Workshop SDSP Holiday Catalogue 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia.

The sentiments are from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set with coordinating Dies to cut them out instead of fussy cutting with scissors. You’ve got to love that!!!!

On the inside I cut the sign post from a sheet of the paper.

This next card also uses the same products, but I embossed over the Designer Paper with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this lady image (also cut from the paper) she reminds me of a grandma who loves baking Christmas cookies!!!

For her to stand out a bit more from the background papers, I added a piece of Vellum cut with the Starburst Punch. Look at that flocking on her apron!!!

I placed this little elf on the inside. He reminds me of a little kid running inside to the smell of the cookies baking, yummy!!

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.

Joyous Noel DSP & Glimmer handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Holiday catalogue 2018

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?!!

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!

Heart of Christmas: Dashing Along Reindeer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am using the Dashing Along DSP which can be earned for FREE with a qualifying order. Ask me how!

This paper pack coordinates beautifully with the Dashing Deer Bundle. I have some very simple cards using these products to share tonight. This is a great way to use up some of your left over pieces of Designer paper and to show off all the different designs in the pack!

Dashing Along with Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia, Holiday 2018

First, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark using the Stamparatus then added some Silver Embosing powder and heat set it. Next, I cut 1/2″ strips of Designer paper and glued them to the front of the card, offsetting them slightly. The reindeer is die cut in Silver Glimmer paper and added with dimensionals.

Here is the same card but in Cherry Cobbler!

Dashing Along with Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Holiday 2018.

Did you notice that the reindeer is facing the other way too? Well, I found it was better to place the die on the back of the glimmer paper rather than the glitter side, as it cuts so much easier!

Which one do you like best, the Red or the Green card?

Colour Creations: how about Early Espresso for Christmas?!

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

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

I have made a Christmas card, which I guess is a strange option using Early Espresso, but I think it actually works quite well, as I have used lots of metallic embossing that screams Christmas to me!

Star of Light with Stampin Ups Tin Tile TIEF by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

The Star of Light stamp set and coordinating framelits can be found in the Annual Catalogue and are still a wonderful option along with the Holiday catalogue.

Don’t you just love all the shine of the metallics on this card?

I used the Tin Tile Embossing folder with some Copper Foil before I sponged some Early Espresso ink onto it. I then sprinkled on some Gold Embossing Powder in small sections and heat set it. I repeated this process with the Silver and then the Copper Embossing Powders and finished with some Clear Embossing Powder over the Early Espresso ink that may not have been covered, otherwise it would rub off.

Star of Light using Stampin Ups Tin Tile TIEF by Kate Morgan Australia 2018

The star was die cut in Early Espresso card and the smaller fancy die in Copper foil.

Look at just how shiny this background is!!! So pretty. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and copper embossing powder. I used my paper snips to create the banner, but you could also use the Triple Banner Punch. I send Christmas cards to some of my friends who are male and live alone, so this is the perfect card choice for one of them this Christmas!

Heart of Christmas, Week 5: Merry Christmas to All

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

How are you enjoying our weekly Heart of Christmas blog hop? Isn’t it a fantastic way of building up a stash of Christmas cards?!! I enjoyed it last year, but I am loving it even more this year.

Today’s card is a very simple one. I just love this piece of Designer paper from the All is Bright DSP pack. Because it’s a fairly busy piece and I didn’t want to chop it up and cover it too much, I decided to make a 5″ square card. I placed a layer of Gold Foil behind the DSP and glued it to a Merry Merlot card base. I stamped “Christmas” first and then die cut the “Merry” and glued it onto the card.

I adore this reversible Copper and Merry Merlot Ribbon and had to add a pretty bow!

I covered the “Merry” with the Wink of Stella Brush for some added glitter to match the ribbon.

The inside of this card continues with the use of some DSP, Gold Foil and this wonderful sentiment!

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.

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

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.

Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018.JPG

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.

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

The Art With Heart Team ladies had so much fun creating Christmas projects for our weekly Heart of Christmas blog hop last year, that we are returning with weekly Chrissy festivities for you! Once a week we will have Christmas inspiration until the end of November.

Today, I am sharing a sneak peek of some of the lovely products in the new Holiday Catalogue, which starts on 5th September.

I’m using the Dashing Deer Bundle; Dashing Deer stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits dies. Who doesn’t love a Reindeer?!!! I also feature the Dashing Along DSP. You can earn this exclusive Dashing Along Designer Series Paper pack for free (in addition to Stampin’ rewards) when hosting a holiday catalogue event with $400 in sales from 1st – 30th September.

The Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is used on the Crumb Cake base card. Three panels; Gold Foil, Cherry Cobbler and the Dashing Along DSP are cut to different lengths with the Banner Triple Punch and layered on each other. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and Gold Embossing Powder applied, then heat set.

The deer being the main feature, had to be sparkly, so I cut it in Gold Glimmer of course!!!

The inside of the card has another sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler and the two swirly dies are also part of this same bundle, finishing off the inside nicely.
