Make a Wish Eclipse card using Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hello Friends,

My project today is a another Eclipse card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!

I love to personalise these cards, but sometimes it is also great to have some birthday cards on hand to use at the last minute, so I made this one for that occasion.

I love this colour combination of Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy!

The easiest way I found to get the letters lined up without them moving, was by putting some washi tape across the letters to hold them in place before die cutting. This also made it easier in the class setting to save time!

Eclipse card with Watercolour Wings

Hello Friends,

My project today is a card I made for my niece’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. Her favourite colours are aqua and pinks, so I’ve used Pool Party, Dapper Denim, Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum.

I’m not sure if you can see the Wink of Stella on the body of each butterfly, but it is so pretty in real life!

This was another card we did at my last class and the ladies thought it was so clever and so much easier to create than they imagined!

Who loves donuts or cookies?

Hello Friends,

My project today is was inspired by Connie Tumm from the USA.

Personally, when I first saw this card, I saw those yummy, sweet, fancy jam biscuits, but so many others just saw donuts, so I’m happy to go with either!!!!

This is my version of the card and we made this at my last class with a lovely group of ladies who loved it! They had so much fun making them and they are made donuts!!!

I personally don’t eat donuts, but I do know they come with chocolate, vanilla & strawberry icing with sprinkles on top, so that is what we made.

The card base is chocolate chip, with Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette for the other layers. We used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the oval from the centre of the card.

Some of these punches have retired, but I will always keep them as they come in handy for so many projects just like this! The 3/8″ circle punch was also used for the centre of the each donut!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Personalised masculine birthday card using Sweet Cupcake!

Hello Friends,

My project today is for a little boy turning 8! I am terrible with creating cards for boys as I don’t have any boys in my family, especially not at this age anyway! It was Joel’s birthday during the recent school holidays and he had a party at Timezone which my daughter was so excited about. This is the card I finally came up with!

The icing on this cupcake was meant to look like choc-mint and the cupcake represents the O in his name. I also embossed the card base with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF for some extra texture.

I stamped another cupcake and placed it inside the card with the sentiment from the same stamp set, Sweet Cupcake.

The reason I chose to use Lemon List Twist for the card base is because it matched the gift bag that we had put the present in!!!

Personalised Birthday Eclipse card with Painted Harvest

Hello Friends,

My Eclipse card today uses the Painted Harvest stamp set and Large Letters Framelits dies, with the following colour combination.

TAMS Color Builder - Soft Suede, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie.jpgI made this card for one of my favourite teachers from my school days, whom I also ended up working with until her Retirement, Patsy.  She is such an amazing person who has so much to deal with but gets on with life, without any fuss. She was such an inspiration to me back in the 80s when she taught me Home Economics; cooking and sewing in Tasmania!

I still keep in touch with Patsy and every year I send her a card for her Birthday and Christmas. So here is her card for this year. I wish you all the best health and love today and always, Patsy. Happy Birthday!

The Eclipse card is a very popular technique at the moment and it works beautifully with this stamp set. The ribbon is retired but it was the perfect 1/4″ cotton ribbon in Pumpkin Pie to coordinate perfectly!

Watercolour Orchids

Hello Friends,

Today I share another card using the amazing, Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, and by purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

This card, I did something a bit backwards…. I die cut all the pieces first before colouring or stamping! Yes, I know it sounds a little weird but you will see why in a minute.

Watercolour Climbing Orchid card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia

I love the softness of the watercolouring of these flowers. I used an Aquapainter to apply ink to each of the petals allowing each colour to dry before adding the next.  The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The centre is a little dark so I added some Wink of Stella to glimmer it up!

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but I think “hello” can be used for so many occasions, I went with that!

What do you think of this watercolour look? Will you give it a try???

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last 

Climbing Orchid by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!
