Brightly Gleaming Dashing Deer

Tonight is a copper detailed deer from the Annual catalogue. I’m really pleased it carried over from last Christmas, as it has been a favourite of mine. I am teaming it up tonight with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer paper from the current Holiday catalogue. Don’t you just love all those foil elements?!

Did you notice these Ornate Frames dies in the Halloween section? Here in Australia, Halloween is not as big as in the USA, and I don’t create for the occasions, but these really looked fabulous and I got them to use for sentiments. You wouldn’t believe how many different stamp sets fit into them!!!

The Delicata Celestial Copper ink looks fab on dark card as do the leafy foil elements behind the sentiment. On the inside, I simply added some more of the ribbon wrapped around a strip of Night of Navy card and adhered it all to some Very Vanilla card stock.

Heart of Christmas is the Most Wonderful Time

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 39 in the Holiday catalogue is featured again tonight.  

Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.JPG

I cannot tell you how quick it has been to create cards with this medley. You can pretty much cut up different pieces of DSPs from the pack to different sizes and just add them to your cards as they all coordinate. I start doing this and then work out what size I want the feature piece to be. In this first card, I wanted a square and because I chose the DSP with the trees, I thought it would be perfect to stamp the smaller tree and add the reindeer.

The banner stickers make adding sentiments super fast too!

This next card I kept the DSP to one larger piece and added the feature in the centre with some ovals. The tree in the centre is a sticker and I just added some of the tinsel trim around it and a Copper Star Element on top.

The sentiment is stamped in the Golden Glitz Delicata metallic ink on Thick Whisper White card.

42462393_10157770663928098_1262209167951659008_n

I’m pretty much just using Fresh Fig and Whisper White today, although I did add a hint of other colours with the Artisan Pearl Embellishments. Oh and check out the champagne foil background!!! I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and look what it created… doesn’t it look like Champagne rain? So pretty!

And who can forget to stamp some more images on the inside with the sentiment and another cute reindeer die cut.

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?

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: Dashing Deer

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.

AWH Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop!

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the lovely, Rebecca Jacovou.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects today I am using the Cookie Cutter Bundle (Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch). By purchasing these items together you save an extra 10%.

Who doesn’t think of Rudolf when you think of Christmas? Well, Santa has to get here somehow and guess who is the leader of the gang?!!!! So today I begin with a card with Rudolf being the focus!

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016, DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

Having a stamp and coordinating punch, makes cards so easy to create. By stamping the background with multiple of the same image, you don’t necessarily need designer paper to get started. Stamp the image again onto the same colour card and punch it out and centre it to the card on dimensionals.

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer, Rudolph, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

I added some of the new copper metallic thread behind for a little bling and a shiny red nose with some Dazzling Details and a bright red sentiment in the bottom corner.

Next is a similar card, but stepped up with an embossed background with copper embossing powder.

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer, Copper, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

The Real Red card was die cut with the Layering Squares framelits and I used the copper metallic thread wrapped around it multiple times for an effective pattern.

Also in this bundle, is a teddy bear (cute hey?!) and the sentiment Have yourself a beary merry Christmas!

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Teddy, Beary Christmas, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

This time I have used some Designer Series Paper, Pinecones and Presents and I selected the piece with the little bows to coordinate with the bow on my teddy bear.

The Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon is tied in a knot with some gold sequin trim.

And now for some cute little Santa earrings, made with this bundle and using some Shrink Plastic! How cool that you can use your stampin’ stuff to create these gorgeous accessories!!!

Woodland Sleigh

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about Christmas and the new Santa’s Sleigh Bundle, combining it with the Woodland TIEF.

I love the sleigh in the glimmer card and the reindeer is super cute!

cards-by-kate-santas-sleigh-christmas-pines-woodland-diy-christmas-reindeer-holidaycatalogue2016-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

The sentiment was added as a banner but it needed some dimension, so I curled it with the bone folder to create extra interest.

Christmas

Merry Christmas

Dear Crafters,

I hope you were all good little boys and girls and the man in the big red fat suit paid a visit!!!!

He certainly did find our home and left loads of goodies for us all.

Anyway, while the Turkey is cooking away, I thought I would drop by with the cute little cards I made for my daughter’s prep class mates. I needed something that was reasonably quick and not too time consuming, as I had to make 20 of them, so I came up with this.

Rudolf Reindeer #stampinup

It is a simple white card base and using the Dots & Stripes Decorative Mask, I sponged 8 circles in Soft Suede ink for each of Santa’s reindeer and then 1 in Real Red ink (no guessing who this is for!!!)

The antlers are the top part of a branch from the No Bones About It stamp set (you know, the one with all those dinosaurs!)

Rudolf Reindeer #stampinup

I stamped the sentiment from the Jingle All the Way stamp set at the bottom.

Aren’t they cute?!!!

I hope you all enjoy your Christmas Day and eat as much delightful food and yummy drinks as you like, I know we sure will!
