Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Wishes

Dear Crafters,

Today I am featuring one of the new Bundles in the annual catalogue, Beautiful Bouquet. By purchasing this stamp set and coordinating framelits together as a bundle, you can save 10%.

The sentiment is from the new Tabs for Everything stamp set and cut using the Classic Label Punch.

Although the Designer Paper is suited to the Delightful Daisy Suite, I think it still coordinates quite well with any of the other floral suites! What do you think?

Unfortunately, these doilies have retired, but I still love them 😉

This is my own design and I haven’t seen too much done with this bundle as yet, so I wanted to have a play and get creative. How do you think I have gone with this one?

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.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite new bundle and it’s a no-brainer that I am loving this Beautiful Bouquet Bundle!!! I have a bright and cheery 3D posy card to share with you.

I am just loving these products and will be using them so much over the coming months for sure. Coordinating products are the best, and when you purchase them together as a bundle, you even save an extra 10%! Ask me how!

As you can see, I have used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo as my ink colours as well as Tranquil Tide for the stems and leaves and Whisper White for the background.

Check out this new embossing folder too. It’s the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which gives an even deeper impression and 3D effect.

Look at all the layers and I’m super happy that my framelits arrived so I didn’t have to fussy cut all of these… can you imagine, lol 😉

 

The little sentiment ‘For You’ is cut out using the Classic Label punch and added with the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Oh and those 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows are adorable, and you get 4 of each of the 5 new In Colors. It’s also super exciting, especially for me who is bow-challenged, as these come already made and with a mini dimensional on the back so you just stick it onto your project!!!

I also thought that this would look pretty cool stamped onto a candle as a coordinating gift!

The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 4

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Foxy Friends & Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with the Wood Textures DSP!

Heart of Christmas Card using Foxy Friends &amp; Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I just love this little reindeer stamped in Crumb Cake and Glimmer Red nose! The Fox Builder Punch was used to punch out his little head to pop up on dimensionals.

The Wood Textures DSP is so amazing and it can be used for nearly any style card, including Christmas! Who would have thought?!!!

Those snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits are super cute and add the perfect embellishments to this card, along with the sentiment using the Classic Label Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous & Petal Garden

Dear Crafters,

This week my team received their shares that we organised, including Designer Series Papers and some ribbons from the new Annual catalogue, and boy, they are just stunning in real life! Here is mine 😉

2017-2018-stampin-up-annual-catalogue-dsps-and-ribbons.jpg

So, today I have a very simple, but pretty card using loads of new Annual catalogue product, including the Petal Garden DSP, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Pretty Label Punch and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

I just adore this paper! I love every pattern in the pack and that is rare for me, but they are just stunning. I can’t wait to create some more projects with these papers. Here they are:

Oh and that shimmer ribbon is divine and adds a touch of softness. You know, I would never have put Pool Party and Old Olive together as a colour combination, but somehow, it just works!

The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 3

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 3 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Cookie Cutter Christmas & Christmas Pines stamp sets, which have been carried over into the new annual catalogue. I am so happy, as I already had both of these sets and I am excited to be able to continue sharing Christmas projects with you!

I have use Tranquil Tide and Cherry Cobbler and I think these will be my ‘go to’ Christmas colours this year. The teddy bear is stamped in Crumb Cake with Early Espresso features.

This card uses the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes which make card-making very quick and easy and you can create multiples of these cards in a short period of time. We all like that at Christmas time, right?!! And these packs are such great value at $10.50 for 20 notecards and 20 envelopes!

I decorated the envelope with the bear on the front and some of the pine needle branches on the back seal.

Check out the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch; it was one of the first things on my wish list!

Faux Wood Grain with Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a new technique that I haven’t tried before and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

I am using the Daisy Delight Bundle and the Faux Wood Grain Technique.

Can you tell I am just loving this bundle?!!! It is unbelievable value at under $55 for the stamp set and coordinating punch!

Anyway, here is my card. I love the look and simplicity of this. I haven’t added a sentiment, because truthfully, I don’t think it needs one and I can just write inside the card.

Daisy Delight with Faux Woodgrain Technique by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Rowville. 3D Handmade card.JPG

I love how the vellum adds a touch of softness, rather than a solid colour and that ribbon, wow, it is gorgeous to work with!

To see how to create the faux wood grain technique, head over to YouTube to see Carolyn Bennie demonstrate this amazing technique. I just love how every time you try it, it looks so different.

Make a Wish with Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card we made at my class last Saturday using the Daisy Delight stamp set and the Stamping Block Technique!!! As I mentioned, it is unbelievable value at under $55 for the bundle; stamp set and coordinating punch!

The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and I love the font.

I adore this colour combination too!

For best results with the Colour block, ensure you have a clean clear D block and a pierce mat under the cardstock when stamping.

I saw a similar card on Pinterest by Rachel Durtschi, but changed up the colour combination.
