Sweet Strawberry clean design

Today’s project is a simple and clean design with loads of white space, which I love!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set hasn’t seen a lot of love this year and it was time to ink it up again.

Sweet Strawberry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The only cardstock I have used is Thick Basic White. the first layer has an embossed border which was created using the Simply Scored. The fancy layer is cut using the Contours Dies and the circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the image onto the Contour die with Sahara Sand ink, then onto the circle. This was coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent and Flirty Flamingo. Then I placed the circle facedown onto the Simply Scored and scored every 1/8″ to add some texture. Glue this to the card. I stamped one of the flowers again, coloured it then fussy cut it and added it to the card with a mini dimensional and a coloured rhinestone. The sentiment was also fussy cut and added on mini dimensionals. To finish I added a double linen thread bow and extra rhinestone jewels.

Here is a closer look at the centrepiece

The owl is one of the preprinted pieces from the Pack and it is popped up on dimensionals. A small tag is die cut and ‘thanks’ stamped on it and placed just below, as though the owl is delivering an important message!

Peaceful Place card using half sheet of DSP

Today’s card uses the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Silver accents are stunning for Christmas sparkle. The tree on the front is die cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP using the Christmas Trees dies!

Peaceful Place DSP & Whimsical Trees card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021 front

For this card, I used a 12″ x 6″ piece of the DSP and scored it in half at 6″ and then from each end at 1-7/8″. Fold these ends into the card and adhere.  This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

The Basic White insert measures 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″, folded in half lengthwise. Adhere this to the centre of the card and this also gives the card a little more strength, as the patternd papers are quite thin.

The sentiments, from the Christmas to Remember stamp set are stamped in Mint Macaron ink. The presents are fussy cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP!

Sweet Symmetry Criss Cross Card

Today’s project uses In Symmetry stamp set and the coordinating Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  This is called a Criss Cross card, a fancy fold design that is fun and quite easy to put together.

Sweet Symmetry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Take a piece of the Sweet Symmetry DSP and cut it in half (beware of your pattern). Place in your Trimmer and score at 3-3/4″ and 8-1/4″. Work out which side of the paper you want on the inside or outside and fold as desired. I wanted the brighter pattern on the outside for this one!

Sweet Symmetry card

Now place some Multipurpose Glue along the bottom sides and up the sides to the cut edge. Fold these over to seal your envelope.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow at the front.

The Tasteful Labels dies were used to cut a piece of the DSP for the matt layer behind the sentiment. The Label Me Lovely Punch was used to cut some Basic White card.  I placed the punched piece back in the punch but with the straight sides now at the fancy end, so I got the fancy border all the way around!

The Basic White insert measures 4″ x 5-5/8″. All the stamping is done using Bumblebee & Just Jade inks. Some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the stamped flower to embellish.

Count on Me Rainbow Be Dazzling

Today’s project is so colourful and uses a couple of different colouring techniques. The Be Dazzing Specialty Paper is used and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are alcohol based, so it dries quickly when applied to this paper!

I cut the six strips to 14cm x 1.5cm and then coloured them. I applied them to the card base with Seal+.

The Highland Heather scallop circle element is die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies as is the Gold Heart that the bear is holding. The bear is from the Count on Me stamp set, stamped in Memento ink on Basic White card coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pens, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The ‘happy’ is cut from Highland Heather card with some Foam Adhesive Sheet on the back using the Word Wishes dies.

HOC Week 8 – Whimsy and Wonder Christmas

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 made cards using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is just stunning with the holographic accents and the non-traditional colours for Christmas.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

These colours really appeal to me and I couldn’t wait to add them to my order.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies with Misty Moonlight card, I die cut the background label, then added a piece of Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon with some Stampin’ Seal, then one of the Wonderful Snowflakes on a dimensional, then a stamped Mint Macaron tree.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021 inside

Card 2 – For this card, I covered the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal around the edges and a big X through the centre, before I cut 5/8″ x 6″ strips of the patterned paper. I added them from the top of the card and worked my way down using the extra length on either side to help place them and line them up perfectly. Don’t worry that they overhang, as once all the strips are adhered, cut off the excess using the Trimmer or Paper Snips. This is a great way to show all the patterns in a pack of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 1 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

The trees are die cut in Basic White, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron. The stars are Blushing Bride and the tinsel is some of the new 12″x12″ Silver Foil. This comes in 3 shades snd this is the middle one, that has a slightly pinkish/purple shade to it.

A Whimsy Christmas

Today’s card uses the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. I just love the holographic accents and the non-traditional colour scheme for Christmas.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

I have used a Thick White card base, then cut a piece of DSP the same size as the card front. I cut approx. 2″ off one end and flipped it over, then adhered them to the card. This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes, but I still wasn’t happy with the join of the patterned papers, so I cut the edge of the sheet surrounding the Wonderful Snowflakes and used that – waste nothing when it is so pretty!

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

The sentiment and pink tree are stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. The two small thin trees are die cut from Silver Foil and the trees either side are die cut from the Designer Paper and the present is fussy cut from the papers!

The sentiment is die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and added with Dimensionals over a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
