Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.

Heart of Christmas: The Shrinking Deer!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a fancy fold card which opens on the diagonal!

I am using the Dashing Deer Bundle with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and some Shrinky dinks plastic. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal. I sponged the edges with Memento Black ink before adhering to the card.

Dashing Deer Shrinky Dinks card Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

The two deer dies were used to die cut some black shrinky dinks plastic which I then heat with my heat tool to shink them. How cute are they? The were a little tricky to shrink as they turned out so small, but it was worth it!

I sponged some Sahara Sand ink across the bottom of the Very Vanilla oval and stamped the edge with the flower image from the Dashing Deer stamp set. The ovals are die cut using the Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits dies.

When the card is open it looks like this. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and the flower image in Sahara Sand ink and added a strip of the DSP.

To make this card, you simple score an A4 sheet down the centre and across the centre. Then cut the A4 sheet on the diagonal from one corner to the other. This will give you two cards to make from the one sheet. The DSP on the front measures 5¾” x 3¾” and is cut on the diagonal and glued on.

Heart of Christmas: Making Christmas Bright

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing some cards CASEd directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. To case is to Copy and Share Everything, and it is a great way to get started, especially if you are struggling to come up with your own ideas!

I had a team member come and spend a day stamping and we share stamp sets that we may not own ourselves, but we spent way too much time chatting and not enough stamping, lol. Does that happen when you get together with your crafty friends??!!!!

Anyway, I borrowed Andrea’s Making Christmas Bright stamp set and coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch to create these cards.

Christmas card using Stampin Up Making Christmas Bright Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia. Holiday catalogue 2018

This is a 4-1/4″ square card in Call Me Clover card stock. The patterned paper is Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped on Gray Granite card stock and added with dimensionals, with some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim behind it. The Christmas light is stamped in Pineapple Punch!

This next card uses the same products but it is an A5 sized card. The sentiment is stamped and cut out using the Layering Circle Framelits dies and the Big Shot. The strings of Christmas lights are coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers; Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover and Read Red!

Heart of Christmas: Kissing Technique meets Festive Farmhouse & Dashing Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing a card using the Kissing Technique along with the Festive Farmhouse designer paper and the Dashing Deer bundle!

I added a layer of designer paper then another two strips across the centre with a small strip of Silver Glimmer.

Festive Farmhouse meets Dashing Deer Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018 Holiday catalogue.JPG

The deer is inked in Gray Granite and the Sheet Music stamp is inked in Night of Navy ink and they are stamped together (just like kissing the two stamps) before onto the white card. Then I die cut the deer and added it to the vellum cut out with the Starburst Punch. I added some dimensionals to the back of the vellum behind the deer and added some Silver Metallic Thread across the dimensionals being placing it onto the card. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, added some White Emboss Powder and heat set it.

I repeated the stamped image with the kissing technique again on the inside and added another die cut to the top corner.

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!!!

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

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!
