Best Dressed Arrow Fold Card

This Best Dressed Suite is so pretty and the Designer Paper is absolutely stunning. I love all the colours in it and today I have created an arrow fold card. I searched the internet for many different types of fancy fold cards and came up with this one. I couldn’t find one with instructions for Australian measurements, but it was pretty easy to work out!

Aren’t these new Stitched So Sweetly dies gorgeous? I just love the stitching and the different shapes in the one set for beautiful layering. They were one of the first items into my shopping bag!

On the inside, I used the extra pieces of the DSP and some white card for adding a sentiment when required.

Best Dressed in town!

How cute is this Best Dressed Suite of Products?!! Find them on page 54 of the new Mini catalogue!

This card is fairly easy to create. A simple A5 card with a layer of card stock and Designer Paper. A ribbon tied in a bow around the two layers, then glued to the card base.

Some vellum was punched with the Starburst punch and the two stamped images onto white card and cut out with their coordinating dies.

But check out the tassel – you get 18 tassels in 3 coordinating colours in the pack for only $14. Great value and saves trying to make them yourself! I attached it to the parfum with some white baker’s twine. I also coloured the shoe with some Wink of Stella for some glitz (although it doesn’t photograph well).

Life is short, buy the shoes – well, what a great sentiment for many of my friends. They sure know how to shop for shoes!!!

Do you know someone who loves golf?

Wow, it’s almost the end of another decade 😲 Where has the year gone? Did it disappear as fast for you too?!!!

Tonight’s card is another sneak peek of the Country Club Suite – but this is a quick and easy one to recreate. Simply using a piece of the Country Club Designer Series Paper, cover the front of the card.

Masculine card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front

To make the collar, I used the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle dies, and placed it on an angle so the bottom section of the die is at the corner of the card and the centre. Once you have this piece cut, use it as a template to cut the other side exactly the same size. The centre piece with the buttons, I just used the same die cutting a couple of times to get a narrow piece. Glue this piece down before the collar. The buttons are the small golf ball dies in Whisper White card stock!

The gold clubs are die cut in Garden Green card stock.

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tulips

One week to Christmas, where has this year gone? It has flown by so quickly and the kids finish school on Friday, so they will be around to help out prior to Christmas Day celebrations and my brother-in-laws home. What are you doing for Christmas?

Tonight I have a sneak peek of the Stamp set we received at OnStage last month, Timeless Tulips. It also has a coordinating punch, so no need to fussy cut the tulips, yay!

This is a Pear Pizzazz card base and then stamping onto Whisper White with Pear Pizzazz and Rococo Rose ink. Stamp 3 extra large tulips and 2 leaves and punch out. Add these with dimensionals once the card is put together. Linen thread is wrapped around twice and tied in a bow. The sentiment is also from the same set and added with mini dimensionals.

I hope you are ready for Christmas, then early next year, Stampin’ Up!s Sale-a-bration begins!

Red Roses for Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

We are back for another week of Heart of Christmas and again I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite.  

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are super pretty and as you will see, when coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, you can create some amazing Christmas projects. You can also purchase the Stamp set and dies as a bundle saving 10% (#153947), but they are only available while stocks last.

I really love the richness of this card and the pop of colour of the featured rose.

Christmastime is Here, Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia...jpg

Coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake and Colour Lifter. The berries also have some Glittery Crystal Effects for added shine.

Christmas product for a rosey birthday

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Even thought this is a Christmas suite of products, it doesn’t have to necessarily be used for Christmas cards. I am sharing a card tonight that I have made for a family member who loves flowers, especially roses and as soon as I saw this paper I knew it had to be used for her birthday card. This card is super simple and for the Beginner Stamper in mind, as it is mainly using the gorgeous Designer Paper as the focus.

Using another of the Ornate Frames Dies adds a gorgeous filigree pattern for the sentiment to be stamped in metallic ink.  Wrapping some Gold ribbon around the centre over the paper joins and adding a bow in the same ribbon.

The inside of the card has some more of the same Designer Paper glued to a strip of Cherry Cobbler card and glued to some Whisper White card.

Birthday Goodness for a masculine birthday celebration

Tonight I am saying Hi from Sydney!

Yes, I flew here this morning in time for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event tomorrow for demonstrators. I am so excited because my dear friend, Catherine, picked me up from the airport and has invited me to stay with her and her family for two nights 🥰 We are going to have SO MUCH FUN!!!

I’ll share more information about OnStage early next week when I get home, but for now I share the card I made for my husband’s birthday on Wednesday. Let me start by saying I adore this sweet stamp set, Birthday Goodness, however it was best to make a card rather than bake the images for him, although I know he would have loved a stack of donuts!

Masculine Birthday card using Stampin Up Birthday Goodness & Stampin Blends Markers by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.jpg

Look at the gorgeous shimmery glimmer of the icing. This is the Shimmery Crystal Effects added last for that gloriously inviting glaze!!!

The cake stand was coloured using the Wink of Stella and the Delicata Celestial Copper Ink Refill. I did this by dropping 1 small drop of ink refill onto a clear block and by swirling the Wink of Stella through it, I was able to get a lovely soft coppery shine to apply to the stand. Initially I was going to colour the entire stand, but I think just using it as a feature trim and leaving the main part white, gives it more class!, don’t you think?!

The inside is also stamped and coloured in the same colours as the front.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: featuring Embossing Folders

AWHT Enmbossing folder Blog Hop 2019.jpg

Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin’ Up’s! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin’ Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Sujatha Harding. 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 uses many of the Stampin’ Up! Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders all in the one card. By just using 5 panels embossed with a different folder, gives loads of interest and texture to this card. On top of that, I have added the Heirloom Frames & 3D Embossing Folder!

The Purple Posy ink is now in stock and it is such a glorious colour. I have stamped the daisy four times with the ink before punching with the Medium Daisy Punch. Then I punched a couple of scallop circles from a retired punch and cut into each of the scallops to create petals, using fingers to create the curl. I added a pearl to the centre and a velum leaf underneath. The sentiment (Woven Heirloom stamp) is stamped onto White Vellum and glued behind the frame.

My next project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page using the Pigment Sprinkles; the perfect product for this particular page. My 10 year old had so much fun at the recent Colour Explosion Fun Run held at her school. Look at that smile, it says it all!

The pigment Sprinkles can be quite messy to use and you need the smallest amount to create vibrant backgrounds. I sprinkled all the different colours onto the page and then used the Spritzer to add water and spread the colour.

Here is a close up of the embossed frame. I just had to create a page for her to remember the day in future years to look back on and have fond memories.

For best results when using the Stampin’ Up! 3D Embossing Folders; use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate; it adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich to make those 3D designs pop.

Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

Sip Sip Hooray!

Tonight I have used the Sip Sip Hooray Bundle from the Holiday catalogue. I purchased this bundle because it will be so handy for many different occasions; Christmas, Birthdays, Weddings, Engagements, any form of celebration!

Navy and Gold also is very rich and coordinates so well. Behind those bubbles is Gold Foil which really shimmers, but is so hard to photograph. The images of the glasses are stamped in the new Delicata Metallic Golden Glitz ink.
