Best Dressed Ladybug!

Oh my, look at this background, how beautiful is the embossing? This is the new Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Again I have used the Little Ladybug stamp set and a strip of the Best Dressed DSP.

I stamped the ladybug first, then used a mask over her and then stamped the flower so that it looks as though she is sitting on it. Then I coloured them before fussy cutting to add to the card on dimensionals.

The flower petals were covered with Petal Pink Blends Markers and then the Light Flirty Flamingo blends was used as well to give that extra shade of pink. I really love how it turned out! The centre is coloured with Daffodil Delight Blends Markers then Shimmery Crystal Effects added.

On the inside I stamped the row of ladybugs and coloured them in with a simple Happy Birthday sentiment.

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.

Feminine Best Dressed Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia

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.

Merry Christmas with a twist!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday and you were able to have a quieter day today to recover!

Tonight I have another sneak peek for you with the Country Club Suite available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

My parents have been very keen golfers for many years and all my Dad wanted for Christmas was a handmade card. So, when this suite arrived just before Christmas, I knew I had to use it, but with a twist to make it a Christmas card.

No the tees, golf balls and grass are not upside down LOL, they were deliberately placed like this to look like Christmas baubles hanging down from some greenery!!!

See those golf balls? They are wood elements and I embossed them! Yes, I ran them through my machine using the large golf ball die to get those dimples on the balls!!! Give it a go, the outcome is so cool.

Colours: Garden Green, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy

On the inside, I carried the theme through and added the golf image by colouring it with Stampin’ Write Markers direct to the stamp to get the colouring of the grass, tee and ball!

Sneak Peek of Tropical Oasis

Tonight I am sharing some new product that will be available in January in the upcoming Mini catalogue. This is the Tropical Oasis Suite and it is super cool and will be very popular!

Just check out this amazing Designer series paper!

Tropical Oasis Suite by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia. Mini catalogue 2020...jpg

The flesh of the pineapple I die cut in Crushed Curry card stock and used a sponge dauber to add some Mango Melody ink to it to give that extra tone. The sentiment is also stamped in the same ink and I daubed the edges with the ink too! The pineapple top is cut in Garden Green card stock and vellum and layered together, slightly offset.

Pool Party card stock is used for the card base and the die cut for the sentiment.

Brightly Gleaming Ornaments meet a Product Medley!

How are coping with the silly season? I am finding it super busy and so tonight I have a very quick and easy card for you!

I love how we can mix and match so many of our products and they still work – the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley meets Brightly Gleaming Ornaments!

This card is super simple, but I love how these ornaments shine above the background. The Real Red ribbons I have used are retired product, but how good do they look? The 1/8″ ribbon that the ornaments are hanging from is added with a glue dot behind each ornament and folded over the top of the white/gold star layer before gluing it to the card. The thicker red ribbon is wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.

The ornament punches are used with the Designer paper and again with a little gold foil for the top of each one. Then they are added with dimensionals for some height.

This card was made in about 5 minutes, but looks a million dollars!!! 😉

Deer with gold foil antlers is divine

Yikes, only two weeks until Christmas Day 😲 🎄🎁

Have you finished your Christmas cards yet? I have already got mine in the mail, but I still have a couple left to do for people nearby. Thank goodness for the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to make is super easy!

I adore this paper of the deer with their gold foil antlers, and I didn’t want to cover it up or cut into it too much; it needs to shine!

The Stitched Nested Label dies in Gold Foil added enough glitz with the Starburst circle on top and the deer sticker. The tinsel behind these elements adds the extra Christmas sparkle.

This one is a simple design with the layered circles in foil, designer paper and embossed card for added interest. The tree with those gorgeous gold stars finishes it off nicely.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

AWHT Blog Hop - Gift Boxes and Bags.jpg

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Tina Gillespie. 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!

On Saturday 16 November I attended OnStage in Sydney, an event for demonstrators only,  and I created this box for my dear friend Cathy, who picked me up from the airport and allowed me to stay with her and her family on the north shore for 2 nights. We have become wonderful friends through our love of Stampin’ Up! over the last few years and I knew her love for Haigh’s Chocolates, so I wanted to get some for her as a thank you!

IMG_0337.jpg

I knew it had to be fairly large to fit a couple of packs of chocolates inside, so I started with the base of the box. I placed it on the Simply Scored and placed one pack of the chocolates in the centre to see where the scorelines needed the be. I used a piece of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper, 12″ x 11¼” and scored each side at 3¾”. Cut as shown below and add Tear N Tape.

Haighs Gift Box measurements.jpg

The lid is a piece of Silver Foil, 6¾” x 7½” and scored on all 4 sides at 1½”. I love the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and it coordinated perfectly with the blues of this project and I know Cathy loves these colours too!

My next project is a Twist N Close Box, inspired by Sam Hammond, UK. I love how this closes up, it is so clever. I’ve used the Daisy Lane Bundle (pg.23 of Annual Catalogue) to decorate it with the Woven Threads DSP.

Here’s what it looks like open and closed from the top view. I plan on sharing these in my 2020 classes.

A full list of products can be found at the end of this post.

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.

Birthday card using Christmastime is Here Suite, Stampin Up Holiday catalogue 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia..jpg

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.
