I have chosen Metallics and Balloons for my card, along with some brand new products from the upcoming 2017-2018 annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue. I know you love a sneak peek to see some new items coming soon 😉

I have used two of the new In Colours; Lemon Lime Twist & Powder Pink. Aren’t they just stunning together?!!! The stamp set is called Happy Birthday Gorgeous and I randomly stamped the flowers over the top layer of white card.

the happy birthday sentiment is die cut from the Happy Birthday Thinlits die in the gold glimmer paper.

Favourite Retiring Products Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 annual and 2017 occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You have come to me from the talented, Rachel Palmieri!

Now let’s get started!

For my first project, I have used my favourite suite, Cupcakes and Carousels!

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper. It is so bright and colourful and definitely in my colours that I really love to work with. Don’t the layers look wonderful?!

The carousel is gold embossed twice. The bottom layer was directly onto the square white card and the second was die cut with the circle die. Not sure if you can see that lovely gold shine?

The cupcakes are stamped and die cut and added with dimensionals.

My favourite products from the annual catalogue would have to be the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. This was the very first Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I purchased in my starter kit and has always been a favourite. I’m not sure I will ever be able to give it up!

In this card, I have also used the retiring Elegant Butterfly punch, Lovely Lace TIEF, the Subtles Designer Series Paper and the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon.

and those gorgeous mini pearls… they won’t be around any more either, but don’t fear, the packs have been reconfigured and will return in a different format!

This card is the same design as the one above, however, I have used the retiring Happy Hearts TIEF (this really was one of my favs!).

Nailed It with Urban Underground

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing the last of the four cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the Nailed It stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nailed It Urban Underground Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kelly Kent created that I saw on Pinterest.  I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging, so I often find myself scouring Pinterest for ideas.

This card really messes with my OCD too, stamping in such a random pattern, is something that I truly struggle with. We started with a square, stamped the images, then cut into 3 equal strips.

The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

And I always stamp the inside too!!!

Born to Ride

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing another of the cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the One Wild Ride stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

One Wild Ride Urban Underground Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kylie Bertucci created that I saw on Pinterest. It just stuck out to me as a quick and easy card to create but so masculine at the same time! I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging.

And this is the inside of the card. I always stamp the inside too!!!

Masking Technique with Superman!

Dear Crafters,

Following all the excitement of OnStage, today I am sharing a card that we made at my Masculine class last week.

Masking Technique using Stampin Ups Everyday Hero Superman Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I love the buildings in this stamp set, but having just the one layer of buildings, just didn’t seem to do my card justice, so I added many layers using the masking technique!

Most of the ladies just looked at me as though, “you have to be kidding”, when I showed them what we were about to make, especially with the fussy cutting around the character, but I think they actually were very impressed with their final works!

What do you think of this card?
