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.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite new bundle and it’s a no-brainer that I am loving this Beautiful Bouquet Bundle!!! I have a bright and cheery 3D posy card to share with you.

I am just loving these products and will be using them so much over the coming months for sure. Coordinating products are the best, and when you purchase them together as a bundle, you even save an extra 10%! Ask me how!

As you can see, I have used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo as my ink colours as well as Tranquil Tide for the stems and leaves and Whisper White for the background.

Check out this new embossing folder too. It’s the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which gives an even deeper impression and 3D effect.

Look at all the layers and I’m super happy that my framelits arrived so I didn’t have to fussy cut all of these… can you imagine, lol 😉

 

The little sentiment ‘For You’ is cut out using the Classic Label punch and added with the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Oh and those 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows are adorable, and you get 4 of each of the 5 new In Colors. It’s also super exciting, especially for me who is bow-challenged, as these come already made and with a mini dimensional on the back so you just stick it onto your project!!!

I also thought that this would look pretty cool stamped onto a candle as a coordinating gift!

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it  would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June.

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

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.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects, I have used the Colorful Seasons suite, Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (page 147 of new annual catalogue). I love how this bundle has so many items to be able to create a project for any season. There are 24 stamps in this stamp set; sentiments, flowers, leaves, branches, snowflakes and more!

Autumn – I have used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip. The material of the sun chair was stamped using the kissing technique with the wavy stamp from the set, Work of Art! I stamped the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, but it needed something, so I also stamped in Pumpkin Pie, but slightly offsetting it for a shadow effect.

Autumn - Colourful Season & Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

Spring – I have used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. The blossoms were stamped with Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum inks and die cut. The second one is a stamped off version of Sweet Sugarplum! I just love this colour combination and I could certainly see myself sitting on this chair enjoying a drink under the cherry blossoms 🙂

Spring - Colourful Season & Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

Winter – I have used Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Whisper White with some Silver Glimmer of course! The snowflakes are stamped in Dapper Denim and stamped off a 2nd and 3rd time to get the gradient in the colour. I have also used some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots; how stunning are they?!!!!

Favourite Retiring Products Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 annual and 2017 occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

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 have come to me from the talented, Rachel Palmieri!

Now let’s get started!

For my first project, I have used my favourite suite, Cupcakes and Carousels!

Carousel Birthday Card using Stampin Up Cupcakes & Carousel Birthday DSP, Up & Away thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Melbourne. #Occasions2017 3D

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper. It is so bright and colourful and definitely in my colours that I really love to work with. Don’t the layers look wonderful?!

The carousel is gold embossed twice. The bottom layer was directly onto the square white card and the second was die cut with the circle die. Not sure if you can see that lovely gold shine?

The cupcakes are stamped and die cut and added with dimensionals.

I cased this from a card I saw browsing Pinterest by Crafty Little Peach.

My favourite products from the annual catalogue would have to be the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. This was the very first Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I purchased in my starter kit and has always been a favourite. I’m not sure I will ever be able to give it up!

In this card, I have also used the retiring Elegant Butterfly punch, Lovely Lace TIEF, the Subtles Designer Series Paper and the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon.

and those gorgeous mini pearls… they won’t be around any more either, but don’t fear, the packs have been reconfigured and will return in a different format!

This card is the same design as the one above, however, I have used the retiring Happy Hearts TIEF (this really was one of my favs!).

Hoppy Easter: Art with Heart Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some Easter projects, seeing as Easter is only about 3 weeks away!

Sale-a-bration continues, but must end on 31st March, so to earn your free item, just place a minimum $90 order – ask me how!

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 have come to me from our team leader, Claire Daly!

Now let’s get started!

For my projects, I have used the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Hey Chick!

IMG_4790.JPG

Here is another little Easter Treat Basket using the Window Box thinlits dies. I adore how versatile these thinlits are for so many projects, from gift boxes to these cute little baskets which hold three hollow eggs!

Easter Treat Basket using Stampin Ups Window Box thinlits & Any Occasion stamp set by Kate Morgan Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia 3D DIY Occasions 2017 Saleabration 2017

To create this one, you cut two of the box shapes and join them together, but then you only need half of the hexagon shape, so cut these in half. I also removed the tabs from either end (top and bottom of pic). Then cut a strip for the handle. Super easy to create! The sentiment is from the Saleabration, Any Occasion stamp set.

This next one is using the same idea but I die cut the stripes into the side and used those strips to create a basket weave effect.

Easter Basket using Stampin' Ups Window Box Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia. Occasions 2017 3D DIY

The card uses the Circle of Spring stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Wreath framelits dies from the Annual catalogue. To create the background,I inked up one side of the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, placed the Sahara Sand cardstock inside, closed it and rubbed over the top to create the pattern. I also sponged the edges and die cut a circle behind the wreath so the sentiment would shine through!

The Stampin’ Write Markers (Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo & Peekaboo Peach) were used to colour the wreath for a bold and bright look!

Sale-a-bration continues and this week we have three new additional items you can earn for free with a $90 order – ask me how!

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with some of the products in the Occasions catalogues.

For my projects, I have used the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set, Balloon Pop-up Thinlits and the Sunshine Wishes Dies.

I used some of the Designer Series Paper stacks to create these cute little napkin fold treat holders. The sentiment was perfect too!

And what party is complete without cake, right?!!! Making these cupcake toppers with a stamp, punch and tooth pick, creates a wonderful suite for any party! (and yes, I baked these chocolate cupcakes just to take the photos for you!)

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Judy May.

For my projects, I have used the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set, Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper and the Any Occasion stamp set (FREE Sale-a-bration item).

carousel-birthday-gift-and-card-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

Are you wondering what is in that box? Well, read on to find out!

carousel-birthday-card-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

This 4″ x 4″ card uses the gorgeous Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series paper stack and the coordinating Carousel Birthday Stamp set. The card base is Calypso Coral with a piece of the DSP. I’ve used the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies for the oval. The Bermuda Bay Stitched satin ribbon goes so well with this DSP pack.

horse-carousel-birthday-card-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

The horse was stamped on Very Vanilla card and fussy cut. It’s coloured with the new Watercolour Pencils and mounted to the oval with Dimensionals.

Now for the Box! This was a trial and error project, to come up with the correct size for gift inside! Instructions for this will be listed below.

horse-carousel-birthday-candle-box-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

I stamped the images onto White Tissue Paper and coloured it with the Watercolour Pencils, then added it to the candle using my heat gun and some baking paper. I was surprised at how well it transferred!!!

Here’s a close up!

carousel-birthday-candle-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

And here is the little tag I made for the front of the box, using the oval die cut from the window section of the gift box! I also used the same Any Occasion stamp set for this sentiment.

carousel-birthday-tag-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

So if you purchased the Carousel Birthday stamp set, DSP and framelits, you can then choose the Any Occasion stamp set for FREE! What a great offer.

I reckon this makes a lovely happy birthday gift set for that someone special in your life.

horse-carousel-birthday-card-and-candle-box-by-kate-morgan-independent-stampin-up-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-saleabration-2017

Here’s how I made the box:
I started with a piece of card measuring 9-1/8″ x 8-1/4″.
Score on long edge at 2″ & 7-1/8″, rotate 90 degrees and score at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″.
Cut away sections below.

candle-box-template-1

Place it in the Big Shot with the Stitched Framelit Oval. Fold in the 2 flaps before putting the top plate on so it fits through the machine.

candle-box-template-2

I placed a piece of acetate behind the oval and using scissors, cut up each of the two centre score lines to the first fold, then you can glue the box together and decorate as desired!

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

Now let’s get started!

I have a double spread scrapbook layout using the Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Bundle & Star of Light stamp set.

candy-cane-lane-dsp-cookie-cutter-bundle-gingerbread-man-diy-double-layout-scrapbooking-memory-keeping-holiday-catalogue-2016-cards-by-kate-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I haven’t done any journalling, as I have created this ready for Christmas this year, and it really isn’t that far away!

Every December, my girls and I make gingerbread men and tiny gingerbread houses and we decorate them. It takes us the whole weekend but we have made it our annual tradition.

My next project features the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I adore the colours in this paper pack; Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum & Whisper White.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set. The flower is from the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating punch, Flower Medallion.

This card uses the same Blooms & Bliss DSP, but in the blue tones!

 

The next DSP to feature is from the Holiday catalogue, Presents & Pinecones. This has been my favourite paper pack this season! This is a shaker card using the Delicate Ornament thinlits.

My final project for today features the Floral Bouquet DSP with the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating Medallion punch.

I love the classic blue and white of these papers.
