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 am using this cute Sweet Stockings Designer Papers. These papers do all the work for you, in making some quick and super easy cards this Christmas.

Along with the sentiment stamp set, Christmas to Remember, heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder on the Label Me Lovely punch. Two small strips of Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic ribbon was added to the card, before the label was added with dimensionals.

The Pampered Pets stamp set is used on the inside in Soft Suede ink and a sentiment from the Peaceful Deer stamp set.

The next card is the same, however the placement of the sentiment is in a different position, so as not to cover up all the gorgeous kitty images.

HOC Week 9 – Whimsy Wonder Peaceful Deer

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 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.

Decorate the inside of your card, leaving room to write your message.

HOC Week 6 – Loving Peaceful Deer for quick 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!

For each of my cards tonight, I have used a Thick Basic White card base. I do this often so I don’t need to add extra layers inside my cards to write my messages, as it is already white. I do add some embellishments and stamping but it’s easy when it’s a white card!

Peaceful Deer Quick Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The Peaceful Prints DSP is one of the Sale·a·bration items that can be selected free with any $90+ order between 3 Aug – 30 Sept. The best part is that it coordinates with the Peaceful Deer Bundle (#156391) which is fantastic value at only $62 for the Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set (#156891) and the Deer Builder Punch (#156390).

The Stitched Rectangle Dies have made an appearance again. I just love these dies and use them all the time. Some of the stitched layers have been matted onto Evening Evergreen cardstock. I just thought it went so well with this suite and it is a little more subtle than Basic Black. The deer images are punched with the Deer Builder Punch from the patterned paper and adhered with dimensionals!

The Tasteful Labels dies have been used to cut out the sentiments.

The Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper is also a Sale·a·bration item and wow, this is stunning! Just check out that gorgeous glittery effect it gives, but it is even better in real life.

The Real Red Sheer Ribbon (#153535) is added behind the sentiment on this card.

On the inside, I added a narrow strip of DSP and a sentiment. I added Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to each of the cards to finish them off.

HOC Week 4 – Sneak Peek of Christmas Season

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 am using some of the products from the Painted Christmas Suite.

Painted Christmas DSP JD21

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

Christmas Season Bundle, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.
