Dear Crafters,

I have obviously gone for the earthy tones and the Seasonal Layers thinlits are the perfect match, along with some of the burlap ribbon. The sentiment is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set as I wanted a fairly large image to stamp onto the Oval Stitched Shapes framelits die cut.

Designer Series Paper, Farewell, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Earthy tones for a Masculine card

Hello Friends,

My project today is a Masculine Farewell card using the Wood Textures Designer Paper, Painted Harvest stamp set and the Seasonal Layers thinlits.

I initially had the Lemon Lime Twist panel on the left plain, but then i decided to stamp those little acorns and I think it looks great. I also stamped one on the envelope!

The sentiment was printed using my computer, but look at that detail in the Wood Textures DSP?!!! It has so much detail and it looks so real! I love these detailed leaves too.

On the inside of the card I used some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and a small piece of the Wood Textures DSP.

Project #1

The Wood Textures DSP is awesome, especially for masculine cards and projects. Here is an example where I have used it as a feature at the bottom of the card. To me, it acts a bit like a fence with the hot air balloons travelling above!

Project #2

This is the Petal Garden DSP, isn’t it stunning?!!! I just love this one. You can do so much with these papers and both sides of every double sided page is worthy of use. Here I have created two very simple cards showcasing the gorgeous floral patterns with the shimmer ribbon, Pretty Label punch and the sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Project #3

I have created some 3D boxes as gift wrapping for some very special birthdays coming up this week. These boxes are very easy to create using the Envelope Punch Board and some of our stunning DSPs. The one on the left uses a pattern from the Delightful Daisy DSP. The top one is from the Coffee Break DSP and one underneath, is from the Naturally Eclectic DSP. I have decorated them with the new mini sequin trim and the burlap ribbon.

Project #4

Here is a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbooking page using the gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. This was a gorgeous day trip during our recent driving holiday up to Sydney. One of our favourite places to visit, is the Licorice and Chocolate Factory in Junee. As you can see, we did stock up just a little at the shop on our way out!!! I also used some gold foil with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and the Birthday Blossoms & Brushwork Alphabet stamp sets.

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 20: Carols of Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Carols of Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia

When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!

Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

Year of Cheer Suite with Large Letters

Hello Friends,

My project today has no stamping, can you believe that?!!! When you see it, you will see why!

I am using the Large Letters Framelits dies, and the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper & Washi Tape. #cutitnothoardit

With this DSP, you don’t need to do a lot, as it is simply stunning with its metallic patterns. It is my niece’s birthdays coming up next month, so I was needing to make some cards for their special day. Here is one I was going to make using the Eclipse technique, but I loved how the letters stood out so much with some black cardstock behind the DSP, I didn’t want to put the letters back on top!

Just check out that metallic shine!!!! And the copper trim is just the perfect match and finishing touch with the bow.

The Heart of Christmas, Week 18

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 18 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Merry Little Labels stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label punch to create this Christmas card!

Here I have embossed the background card using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, before adding a large banner of the Quilted Christmas Designer paper with a piece of the black lace trim tied around it.

The sentiment, No Peeking is stamped with Versamark ink and silver embossed on the black card. The new Everyday Label punch is the perfect match to punch it out and adhere with dimensionals.

The sentiment inside the card, is exactly what we do on Christmas day; eat, drink and be merry! lol
