You Make Me Happy, Little Pig

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the This Little Piggy stamp set and the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

This Little Piggy by Kate Morgan, Indpendent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia. #cutitnothoardit.JPG

The image was stamped in Early Espresso ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and heat set. Then I coloured it with Stampin’ Write Markers and added a tiny pearl to the centre of the flower. Some copper metallic thread was added behind the main image and check out the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, isn’t it stunning? It is just so pretty!

The Stitched Shape Framelits add extra texture behind the main image with the stunning Designer Series Paper as the background.

Happy Stamping,

Rock N Roll with Beautiful Bouquet

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing my June ATC Swap that I made as part of our wider Art With Heart Team monthly ATC swaps. I have used Stampin’ Up!s Beautiful Bouquet Bundle which as you know is my favourite bundle in the Annual catalogue and this challenge was to use the Rock N Roll technique. The Rock and Roll technique is a great way to add a variation of colour to your stamped images!

Rock N Roll Technique using Stampin Ups Beautiful Bouquet by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia @craftwithkate.JPG

ATC Swaps are 2½” x 3½” cards. Each month a different technique is chosen and for every participant, you make that number of cards, exactly the same. We send them all to the organiser with a stamped self addressed envelope and once she has them all from each participant, she sends one of each back in our envelope! It’s a wonderful way of learning new techniques without having to create full size cards.

Click here to watch a video tutorial on this technique.

What do you think of this technique? Would you give it a try?!

Happy stamping!

Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 8

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 8 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the new At Home with You stamp set and the coordinating At Home Framelits (purchased together as a bundle, you save an extra 10%)!

The Brick Wall Textured impressions embossing folder was used to create the background with Crumb Cake card and I sponged the edges and across the grout lines with a sponge dauber and coordinating ink.

Check out the red door? Yes, it actually opens! This is super cool and there is a die in the set that actually creates this. I love the wreath and the holly above the door; it really gives that Christmas feel. I can almost imagine a warm fire glowing inside the door!

The red glimmer paper was punched with the 1/8th Handheld Circle punch and adhered to the little trees with Tombo multipurpose glue. I think these baubles look so pretty in the glimmer! I love the door mat too, which I stamped Merry Christmas in Versamark ink and gold embossed it.

Wow, embossing paste is so much fun!

Hello Friends,

Today I am featuring the Embossing Paste with the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle to create this For You card. As you already know, this is my favourite new bundle, but now combined with the Embossing Paste, WOW, I am totally loving it!

Oh, and a tip using the embossing paste, it dries really fast, so be sure to wash your mask straight after you take if off the card! I added a tiny drop of reinker to my paste to colour it. Isn’t it pretty?

Petal Garden Multiplies

Hello Crafters,

Today I am featuring the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper to create lots of very simple cards, using the same design, but many different papers from the one pack together to get different looks. These are the beautiful colours in this pack:

Petal Garden DSP Colours.jpg

I cannot tell you how much DSP I have sitting in my house that is retired and hasn’t been touched, because it’s too pretty and I’ll use it for another project!!!! Do you say this too?!!!! LOL  So this year, my motto is #cutitnothoardit.

I added some of the stunning Shimmer ribbon to the cards with this simple knot (easier than bows) and I even used the beautiful border punch, Decorative Ribbon Border. With this punch, you can use the whole thing, or just have part of the punch showing to give different looks too!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 7

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 7 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is a Fancy Fold card (instructions below) using the Star of Light, Cookie-Cutter Christmas & Tabs for Everything stamp sets and the brand new Embossing Paste!

Wow, this embossing paste is fabulous! I loved playing with it, but just a warning, you need to work fairly fast and ensure you clean up straight away before it dries hard onto your masks. The design was completely dry within a few minutes!

Here I have mixed in a tiny drop of reinker to colour the paste to coordinate with my colour scheme.

The Santa was stamped in Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here is the side view so you can see how it folds flat to fit into a standard C6 envelope for posting!
