Handmade Feminine card using Stampin Ups Oh So Eclectic by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

As you can see in the image above, the pretty colour combination for this card!

I have to thank my lovely friend, Kimberly Hern who came to stamp with me last weekend and she let me borrow this bundle to play with. I am trying to resist buying it, but it is just such a gorgeous artistic set and so different to lots of the usual Stampin’ Up! style. Thanks Kim for inspiring me!

Masculine Birthday Card using Stampin’ Up!s Guy Greetings

Hello Friends,

Who struggles creating Masculine cards for the men in your life? Well, I know I certainly do and so I have made some cards to store away for when I need them!

This card uses the Guy Greetings stamp set in the current Annual catalogue. I quite like these shoes and feel that they can be used for anyone who may be a businessman who wears a suit for their day job, or anyone with a little style! lol

Favourite Colour Combination for the Art with Heart Team Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-current

Dear Crafters,

The Art with Heart Team ladies are selecting their favourite colour combinations to share with you tonight. Choosing the right colour scheme can be essential to your design and with Stampin’ Up!s stunning collection, there are 50 colours to choose from. There’s sure to be some combinations that work really well together and you can take inspiration from.

Now sit back and enjoy some time out of your day to cruise through our blog hop and soak up some colour explosion eye candy!

Blog Hop July 2017 - Favourite Colour Combination.jpg

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 may have come to me from my lovely team member, Amie McIlroy.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite colour combinations and I certainly do love these colours together. In fact, any colour with black can be so striking!

Favourite Colour Combination Blog Hop for Art with Heart Team by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia. TAMS Color Builder

I am using the amazing new embossing paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Favourite Colour Combination using Stampin Ups Sweet Cupcake & Embossing Paste by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia for Art with Heart Team Blog Hop.

I mixed a small drop of Berry Burst ink into the paste and mixed it around thoroughly. I placed the die of the icing from the cupcake Framelits onto white cardstock. Holding it carefully, I applied a liberal amount of the paste, swirling it around to create the icing. I then used a thinner layer on the black card using the mask to create the background, hence it looks lighter in colour. Set these aside to dry.

Favourite Colour Combination using Stampin Ups Sweet Cupcake by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia for Art with Heart Team Blog Hop 3D Embossing Paste.JPG

I die cut the circles using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. The sentiment was using the stamps from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, but you may notice that the word “wishes” is not there. I thought it looked a bit silly saying Sweet Birthday Wish and needed to make it plural, so I carefully inked up the “ess” from the “you happiness” stamp, placed a piece of paper over the last “s” so it didn’t stamp on my card to create wishes!

Favourite Colour Combination using Stampin Ups Sweet Cupcake & Embossing Paste by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia for Art with Heart Team Blog Hop 3D.JPG

The cupcake wrapper was stamped in Soft Suede (2nd and 3rd layers stamped off once, then twice) before being die cut and added below the icing. Once the icing was dry, I used paper snips to cut around the whole cupcake and added it to the Berry Burst circle with dimensionals.

I love the touch of gold glimmer to die cut the sentiment and the golf metallic thread added behind the circle layers.

At the very end once all of the layers were stuck down, I went back with the palette knife and added a tiny bit more of the white paste across the raised edges of the icing to add some highlighting and a swirl effect. I just want to eat it!!! At least this cupcake is better for the figure, hehe!

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!

Fancy Fold card with Lots of Labels

Hello Crafters,

Today I am featuring the Lots of Labels framelits to create this Fancy Fold card inspired by Dawn Griffith. I love to try different fancy folds and this one we did in my class on Saturday and the ladies loved it, although at first took fright wondering if it was going to be difficult to create!

I added a piece of ribbon to the left of the label die, which is an addition to the original creator. I just thought it helped show that is where to pull to open this style of card.
