Let’s Celebrate Copper!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the Window Box Thinlits dies to create a card!

 

stampin-up-window-box-thinlit-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017

I love copper metallic thread wound around the card. I tied another small piece through the centre in a knot to tie them together.

stampin-up-window-box-thinlit-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017-flat

The sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

I just love the shine of the copper through the black!

Hula Hoop Girl

Dear Crafters,

Well it is nearly the end of 2016 and in a way, I am glad to see this year over and very much looking forward to a happier and healthier 2017.

Now that Christmas is over, I am now focusing on the brand new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues available from 4th January!

Today I have the Beautiful You stamp set. When I first saw this particular image, I just knew she had to have a hula hoop swinging around!

hula-hoop-girl-using-stampin-ups-beautiful-you-by-kate-morgan-occasions2017

The background was sponged using the Seasonal Decorative Masks which are currently on sale for $7.00. You get 4 masks for that price too. It’s a bargain!!!

To draw the Hula Hoop, I used the inside of the smallest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits using a black Sharpie pen!!!

hula-hoop-girl-using-stampin-ups-beautiful-you-by-kate-morgan-close-up-occasions2017

I love these Watercolour Pencils, they make colouring super easy and you can use either the Blender Pen or AquaPainter to blend the colour. I have also added some Wink of Stella to her hat!

Happy 1st Year Anniversary, Deb

Dear Crafters,

Last week one of my gorgeous team members celebrated her 1st year with Stampin’ Up! and I sent her this card.

hot-air-balloon-card-using-stampin-up-lift-me-up-up-and-away-thinlits-occasions-2017-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-craft-with-kate

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event and these were some of the products I was fortunate to purchase on a premier pre-purchase order. You too can get your hands on these earlier than 2017 if join my team!!

This new designer series paper is called Carried Away and you can get it for free with any $90 order from January 4th 2017.

It coordinates with the stamps set, Lift Me Up and the Up and Away Thinlits.

Check out this balloon cut out with the thinlits. Isn’t it adorable?

Here is the inside on the card, which I also stamped with some more smaller hot air balloons in the coordinating Mint Macaron ink.

I also loved this sentiment and thought it was very appropriate for celebrating Deb’s 1st year anniversary!

I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the words ‘another year’ in the sentiment, but I’m not sure it photographed so well.

Birthday, Celebrate, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Star Celebration

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a very busy balloon card!

I love using balloons for birthday cards and I’m sure it is the first thing you also reach for when creating projects for birthdays. As I have probably mentioned many times, this was the very first stamp set and Punch Bundle that I added to my cart when we were able to purchase from the Occasions catalogue.

My colour scheme: Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.

IMG_5522

I stamped the balloons first and punched them out and then placed them on the white card to see where to stamp the strings. I added the sentiment and then all the stars, and lots of them!!!! lol

I felt something was missing, so I grabbed my Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Marker and drew by hand, the little dashes around the edge to create a border.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card too! You can see I have stamped the stars again and drawn the border in little dashes on the inside!

IMG_5523

Lastly, I added some rhinestones for a little glimmer!

Bloomin’ Heart at JAI

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is from Rochelle who has suggested we all “Just Add Something New”.

rosepolkapaper2

With the new Occasions catalogue going live on 5th January, we have plenty of new yummy products to choose from.

Anyway, lets get rolling!

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and added a piece of the new Birthday Bouquet DSP. A piece of dotted lace trim in Mint Macaron was added across the centre.

Next I die cut the Bloom’ Heart Framelit from Blushing Bride card stock and glued it to some vellum and then cut around the edges with paper snips. This just gave it a more subtle and frosted background.

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments #stampinupaustralia

I stamped the flower images (Bloomin’ Love stamp set) with Blushing Bride ink onto coordinating card stock and die cut them out, before adding with a glue dot and then a pearl into the centre of each one!

The Bow Paper Clip Embellishment was added (how cute are they?!!!)

On the back of the vellum, a dimensional was placed under each of the 5 flowers and added to the card.

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments

 

I stamped the “celebrate” sentiment (from Beautiful Ride stamp set) in Mint Macaron onto Whisper White card stock and used the banner punch at one end.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside panel along with a coordinating envelope!

Pop up Slider Card

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year to you all, I hope that your celebrations were safe and wonderful and your year ahead is full of love, laughter, happiness & of course loads of crafting!

Today I share with you, a new technique that has been around for many years, but I have not made until now. It’s the pop up slider card.

Slider Card Balloon Celebration Bouquet #stampinup

I love new products and today I have used a few of them lol. These are from the Occasions catalogue and a couple of the FREE sets from the Sale-a-bration brochure which goes live on 5th January 2016!

I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch. This punch has 2 size balloons on it, so it is fantastic value!  I also used the Hello stamp set and Perfect Pairings stamp set, both of which can be earned FREE during Sale-a-bration. All you have to do is spend $90 and choose 1 FREE item, spend $180 and choose 2 FREE items and so on.

Here’s how it works. As you pull the ribbon tab at the top, the middle section of the card opens up to reveal hidden messages.

Push the tab back in and the card closes up.

Colours I’ve used are: Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Melon Mambo & Whisper White.

How cute is this technique??!!! I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a go, but I can see myself making many more of these fun cards.

Balloons galore

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an Inspiration Challenge JAI#265.

What better way to celebrate the birth of a baby girl, than with balloons and hearts. Yes I know, everyone will probably do birthday cards with the balloon inspiration photo, but I wanted to mix it up!

And besides, my cousin had a baby girl last week and it inspired me to try this.

Balloon Framelits Stampin' Up!

I also wanted to share with you something else I have been practicing, and that is my little Sailor’s Knot in the thick baker’s twine. You can see it at the bottom of the card, cute hey!!!!

Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon

Sorry they have a bit of reflection, but I seal them into plastic bags so they stay nice and clean and don’t get ruined in my bag travelling.

Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon  Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon  Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon

I have embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock with the Large Polka Dot TIEF. The balloons are die cut from the Balloon Framelits which are still available in the Occasions Catalogue. These are embossed with the Lucky Stars TIEF or Decorative Dots TIEF. The sentiments are stamped from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon  Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon

The owl is made using the Owl Builder Punch and Sahara Sand card stock and coordinating Designer Series Paper. His wings are made using the wings from the Bird Builder Punch. Don’t you love the way I have folded his left wing to hold the twine?!!! So damn cute! The owl is attached to the card with dimensionals.
