You Can Do Anything!

You know, when I saw this stamp set, I like it, but I wasn’t keen to have to fussy cut around those little froggy limbs, if you know what I mean?!!

Until Stampin’ Up! told us that they were bringing out framelits for a limited time only during March 2019 to coordinate with many of the Sale-a-bration items, and guess what, this set was added to my very next order!!!!

If you want to get these framelits though, they are only available while stocks last and believe me, they are worth their weight in gold!!!

HOPAROUND

We made this card at my latest techniques class and the ladies loved it. The white layer and Soft Seam Foam layer we embossed with the Subtle TIEF. Each layer is glued down flat, but the die cut images are added with diminsionals.

We used the Stampin’ Blends markers to colour the images – how cute is it?

The strip of designer paper is now retired from the Holiday catalogue, but I had just the right amount left over and it coordinates perfectly with this stamp set.

Painted Seasons for a special birthday

On Sunday it was my mother-in-law, Bev’s birthday and this was the card we sent her. She lives 6 hours drive away from us, so we don’t get to visit them often, but we are very close. Bev is even a team member and we are going to Auckland together next month for OnStage Live event… the biggest Stampin’ Up! event of the year, and we cannot wait!!!

These distinctive stamps make creating so easy. These flowers look so real and they are only stamped in one colour and one impression!!! What a great background it makes, and doesn’t it look like designer paper?!!!

Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam are a delightful colour combination, don’t you think? I adore it together.

Bev lives 6 hours drive away from us and so I thought this was the perfect sentiment for the inside of the card xx

Gingham, Origami & Butterflies.. what more could you want?!!

Today is my mum’s 70th birthday, and we will have a lovely celebration this weekend for her but in the meantime, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! I can’t share her card with you just yet either, so I have a design we made at my recent class using the Butterfly Gala Suite.

This Gingham Gala paper is super versatile, you can use it for any type of project; masculine or feminine!

butterfly gala origami window card by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

On the inside I simply glued a piece of gingham paper and another small stamped butterfly. I would also add a sentiment of Happy Birthday or Thinking of You, but I haven’t worked out who I am giving it to just yet.

Happiness Blooms in a W Fold card

Today, I have a W Fold card which I cased from Jan B in the UK!

I am using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Duet Butterfly Punch with the bright and cheery, Happiness Blooms DSP.

The card base is Call Me Clover, 11¾” x 4⅛”, scored at 5⅞”. I cut a 20″ piece of the ribbon and placed it around the card so ties closed with a bow on the opening. By placing a bit of snail across the centre helps hold it in place until you adhere the 2 pieces of DSP (5⅝” x 3⅞”) over the top to hold it in place.

butterfly gala & happiness blooms stampin up occasions 2019 by kate morgan australia

I used the Starburst & 2″ circle punch and stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy ink. The butterflies were stamped five times in Night of Navy ink and then stamped with Calypso Coral and Call Me Clover ink before covering with my favourite product, Wink of Stella!!

Do you see that Metallic Silver thread… yes it was silver, but now it is green, because I coloured it with my Dark Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blend Marker!!!!

butterfly gala & happiness blooms stampin up occasions by kate morgan australia 2019.

On the inside I placed two more pieces of the Happiness Blooms DSP then a strip of Calypso Coral card measuring 11¼” x 1⅛”, scored at 2⅞”, 5⅝”, 8⅜”. I also die cut some squares using the Layering Squares Framelits dies (3rd smallest square & 4th smallest scallop square) and glued them together and to the centre of the strip.

Before gluing each butterfly to the squares, look at where you want them placed and stamp the antennae, then glue down the butterflies. It’s easier doing that first, rather than after.

Colour Creations: Petal Pink with Needlepoint Nook Bargello Technique

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 36th colour; Petal Pink.

This colour has more of an apricot tone and it is one of the many colours in the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I have gone with the Bargello Technique again to create the background. You may have seen me use this Technique in last Friday’s post.

My Colour Combination is: Petal Pink, Berry Burst, Old Olive

Needlepoint Nook Suite Stampin Up Bargello Technique by Kate Morgan Australia, Occasions 2019.JPG

I die cut a Vellum oval and embossed it with the Needlepoint Elements Framelit. I did this so it didn’t totally hide that gorgeous Bargello background.

Colour Creations: Pear Pizzazz for an Amazing Life

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 35th colour; Pear Pizzazz.

I am using the Amazing Life Stamp set with the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. The card base is Pear Pizzazz, stamped with the same ink with the floral image. The centres of each of these flowers has some Wink of Stella for some shine!

amazing life & floral romance sdsp by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

I die cut the stitched rectangle and stamped the images. I added the two strips of DSP then the white rectangle to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. The flower in the corner was stamped with Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz card and some of the DSP in Petal Pink ink, then fussy cut out. These were added with a dimensional.

The open words “cake” and “YAY” have some Wink of Stella applied to colour them in!

On the inside of the card, I simply stamped the 3-tiered birthday cake and sentiment. The flame has some Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t really show in the photos.

Masculine Origami Window Card

Today, I have a masculine card for you using the Classic Garage Designer series paper. I don’t have any of the other products from this suite, so I had to come up with a design using only the paper.

Classic Garage DSP & Butterlfy Gala Origami Window Masculine card Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

My colour combination is Tranquil Tide, Crushed Curry and Real Red.

classic garage dsp & butterlfy gala origami window masculine card stampin up occasions by kate morgan australia 2019.

The top section I used the Origami Window Fold and then layered it onto some coordinating colours as mat layers. The sentiments are from the Butterfly Gala stamp set stamped in Tranquil Tide ink. I love those Rectangle Stitched Framelits which I used on the front of the card and layered it over some of the Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon tide in a knot. Can you see the spine of the card where I threaded the ribbon through? I used the 1/2″ circle punch to make a small notch in the spine. This is a clever way of adding ribbon and when you look at the front of the card, you don’t even notice the punched notch!

On the inside I added a piece of Crushed Curry card and a small strip of the DSP down one side, then stamped the sentiment.

Colour Creations: Pacific Point – Butterfly Gatefold card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 34th colour; Pacific Point.

I’m using three of the Sale-a-bration items, Botanical Butterfly DSP, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack & Hello Cupcake stamp set which can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I have also used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Duet Butterfly punch!

butterfly gala for colour creations pacific point occasions stampin up by kate morgan australia 2019

Starting with a piece of cardstock measuring 8″ x 5⅞”, score the long edge at 2″ & 6″. Fold in to create the gatefold! I glued two strips of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front. The butterflies are stamped in Memento Black ink for the outline and Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist to colour the wings. As you can see below, my Wink of Stella had a good workout too! Oh how I love my “Stella”!!!

The Layering Circle Framelits were used to cut both of the circles and once I joined the belly band together, I covered the join with scallop circle. I  wrapped some of the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon, joining it in the centre of the circle. Add the Green circle over the top to hide the join and them add the butterfly to the centre with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White card with a strip of DSP and stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink.

Amazing Life for this Birthday

Today, I have the small note card that we made at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event last November. It was one of the Make & Takes, but I didn’t get around to finishing it on the day… we may have been talking too much and catching up with friends!!!!
