Happy birthday, Gorgeous

I made this card for a dear friend who was a work colleague for many years, but left a couple of years ago. It was her 60th birthday which also happened to fall on Father’s Day, so happy birthday Sarah!

Did you see the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the front? It is from the new Holiday catalogue, but it looks fab on this non-Christmassy card. It will be one we can use on lots of different projects, thanks Stampin’ Up!

The lady is stamped in Petal Pink ink and her dress is coloured with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen and the hat was dipped in some Melon Mambo ink to pick up a bit of coordinating colour! The sentiment is stamped over the top afterwards in Melon Mambo ink so it didn’t smudge.

As you open this card, it reveals more of the Garden Impressions Designer Paper which coordinates so well with this elegant lady, don’t you think?!! I can see her at a wonderful garden party!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. It is perfect for the fabulous Sarah.

Colour Creations: Coastal Cabana with Bella & Friends

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Coastal Cabana!!! I have to say, I was so excited that it returned with the colour revamp this year. I just adore it ♥

I got inspiration from Tina Rappe for this card, but changed it up to suit our Australian paper sizes. I also made one for my daughter’s 12th birthday with the Pretty Kitty which you can see here. This was one of the cards I taught at my last card class too!

Today I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP which is a stack of 6″ x 6″. This pack doesn’t actually have Coastal Cabana as one of its colours, but I thought this coordinated quite well anyway.

The front panel is embossed using the Basket Weave TIEF. I thought it was perfect for this card, as I imagine most puppies having a basket to sleep in!

The puppy is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils; Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Real Red then used the Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colour.

I had a small strip of the Designer Paper left over, so I added it the centre layer where I will add my message. The ribbon is a retired one from a Sale-a-bration freebie from a few years back!

Lip Balm Box

Hello Crafters,

Today, I have a cute Lip Balm Box that The Paper Pixie shared on her blog on 30 July. You can get the instructions here. I made one to just see how easy it was, and yes, Julie was right!

Lip Balm Holder for Happy Birthday Gifts by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018.JPG

I have used Highland Heather card for the base, some retired DSP and the Tropical thilnlits die for the leaf. The Itty Bitty Greetings, Happy Birthday stamped and added with mini dimensionals for some added height.

I think these would make fantastic party loot… pity I didn’t come across it a little earlier for my own kids parties!

Petals & More Memory Keeping

Hello Crafters,

As you know, July 30 – August 30 is a busy month for us and we have 2 birthdays done and another to go just in our immediate family!

Here is the Project Life page I did for my eldest who turned 12 using up some of the retired Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. It is is important to me to record these milestones and my kids often get out my albums and browse through them. They love looking back on the memories they have made so far ♥

The Large Number Framelits dies are also retired, but I will forever use them for my scrapbooking and memory keeping albums. Here I have cut them out with Black Glimmer paper.

I will share some more pages soon of my 9 year olds special day!

Do you create a scrapbook album or a form of Memory Keeping for your family to look back on in years to come? Life is too short and I love to have these memories for the future generations.

Colour Creations: Cherry Cobbler

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cherry Cobbler!!!

I am using this colour combination with the Cake Soiree stamp set and coordinating dies.

I Gold Embossed the cake and the edges of the Gorgeous Grape layer.

The sentiment on top of the cake is also embossed, but with White Embossing Powder. The photo doesn’t do the cake justice, because the gold embossing looks very dull, when in fact it is quite shiny. I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers in the 3 coordinating colours and the white pencil to add some highlight. The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in full colour and stamped off once for the lighter shade.

Unicorns for a special birthday girl!

Hello Crafters,

Yesterday it was my little girls birthday and she turned 9! She has this fascination like every other 9 year old girl, with unicorns, so check out this card I made especially for her. She loved it! I got loads of inspiration from various Pinterest pages.

Unicorn birthday card using Stampin Up Tropical Chic by Kate Morgan Australia.

The Tropical Chic bundle was perfect for the flowers and I stamped them in the gorgeous bright colours of the inkpads shown in the image above onto Shimmery White card for that added sparkle. The coordinating dies made it super easy to cut them out.

The eyes I cheated and printed off the internet. I have to admit, I did try and failed twice trying to draw them by hand, so I went to the trusty old computer and found these cute whimsical eyelashes! The ears I cut out by hand too as was the Gold Glimmer horn, but these were much easier to do. I added some Wink of Stella to the pink centres of the ears.

The two small hearts were punch from a heart border punch from my retired stock, but it’s so handy for these types of projects. The sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and inked with Powder Pink ink before cutting with the Classic Label punch and trimmed at one end. I added it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I’ve used 3 different stamp sets for this card; Itty Bitty stamp set ‘for you’, the flower is from Accented Blooms stamp set and Varied Vases stamp set for the inside sentiment. The Wink of Stella was used to colour the floral image next to the sentiment!

This card opens up so you can see the gorgeous Tea Room Specialty Designer paper with the kitty image. This is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils and then I used a Blender Pen to add some shading. This image is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added with dimensionals to a piece of Rich Razzleberry Layering Ovals Scallop die which is glued down to the DSP. Open this flap to reveal another layer for your message.

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there 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!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.
