Masculine Origami Window Card

Today, I have a masculine card for you using the Classic Garage Designer series paper. I don’t have any of the other products from this suite, so I had to come up with a design using only the paper.

Classic Garage DSP & Butterlfy Gala Origami Window Masculine card Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

My colour combination is Tranquil Tide, Crushed Curry and Real Red.

The top section I used the Origami Window Fold and then layered it onto some coordinating colours as mat layers. The sentiments are from the Butterfly Gala stamp set stamped in Tranquil Tide ink. I love those Rectangle Stitched Framelits which I used on the front of the card and layered it over some of the Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon tide in a knot. Can you see the spine of the card where I threaded the ribbon through? I used the 1/2″ circle punch to make a small notch in the spine. This is a clever way of adding ribbon and when you look at the front of the card, you don’t even notice the punched notch!

On the inside I added a piece of Crushed Curry card and a small strip of the DSP down one side, then stamped the sentiment.

Colour Creations: Pacific Point – Butterfly Gatefold card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 34th colour; Pacific Point.

I’m using three of the Sale-a-bration items, Botanical Butterfly DSP, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack & Hello Cupcake stamp set which can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I have also used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Duet Butterfly punch!

Starting with a piece of cardstock measuring 8″ x 5⅞”, score the long edge at 2″ & 6″. Fold in to create the gatefold! I glued two strips of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front. The butterflies are stamped in Memento Black ink for the outline and Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist to colour the wings. As you can see below, my Wink of Stella had a good workout too! Oh how I love my “Stella”!!!

The Layering Circle Framelits were used to cut both of the circles and once I joined the belly band together, I covered the join with scallop circle. I  wrapped some of the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon, joining it in the centre of the circle. Add the Green circle over the top to hide the join and them add the butterfly to the centre with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White card with a strip of DSP and stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink.

Square Note card with Butterfly Gala

Today, I have a square notecard using the Butterfly Gala stamp set, coordinating Dual Butterfly punch & the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (can be earned free with a qualifying order!)

Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala DSP Stampin Up Occasions Saleabration Square card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019

I have also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies even though I have made a square card. You may be wondering how I did that? Well, I cut two pieces of DSP with the one framelit and then cut a third of the Butterfly piece from the bottom and two thirds of the Gingham Gala DSP from the top and joined them together. I then placed some of the Grapefruit Grove ribbon across the join!

Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala DSP Stampin Up Occasions Saleabration Square card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

I stamped the butterfly in black ink and used Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight to colour them before adding, you guessed it, Wink of Stella! I joined the two butterflies with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment onto the Gingham section with Black ink.

So in love with Peter Rabbit of Fable Friends

Today, I have one of the cutest stamp sets in the new Occasions catalogue, Fable Friends. It has Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle duck images and these absolutely take me back to my childhood. My Nanna (who passed away in 1980) even cross-stitched both of these for my sister and myself when we were young children. I still have it and it’s so precious to me, so when I saw this in the catalogue it was straight on my list!

Fable Friends & Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

My card base is Balmy Blue, embossed using the new Lace Dynamic TIEF. The So Saffron circle is die cut using the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and the leaves are from the same set, cut in Soft Sea Foam. The flower is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set which coordinates with these framelits.

Peter Rabbit is stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut him so he sat on top of the yellow die cut. I added a couple of little pearl embellishments for his buttons.

The Organdy Balmy Blue ribbon can be earned for FREE with any $90 order and it comes with 4 other coloured rolls of ribbon in the one pack!!! Great value freebie!

I love Sale-a-bation time and the Occasions catalogue launches today too; the start for both of these stunning catalogues and this year, they are even better!

2019 Occasions Cover    2019 Saleabration Cover

If you are like me and have missed the butterflies that retired in the previous Annual catalogue, you will adore the new butterflies suites. There are so many and the Sale-a-bration free product of Butterfly Basics DSP will not disappoint. Be sure to earn this for free with any $90+ order.

And this inspired me to ink up my Butterfly Gala stamp set between Christmas and New Year and I stamped, stamped and stamped and punched all of these beauties!!! So, be sure to watch this space over the next couple of months for how I use them.

Blog Hop, Butterflies, Christmas, Designer Series Paper, feminine, Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Beauty Abounds with stunning Monarch Butterflies for the start of Sale-a-bration!

Tomorrow is the start of Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue 2019!!!

Are you excited? There are so many gorgeous new products and I’d love to know what will be first on your shopping list. I must confess, I loved so much, but I had to have some self control and started with the butterflies. I just cannot live without them!

Some of our lovely team ladies took part in a card swap, which meant we made 11 of the same card, sent them to Claire who divided them up and returned 11 cards to us. The variety is amazing and to see what this talented group of ladies came up with was awe-inspiring!

Here is the one I made using the Beauty Abounds bundle; Beauty Abounds Stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies. I love how there are 2 dies and they overlap for that stunning two tone look.

This colour palette; Black, White & Pumpkin Pie, reminds me of the most common monarch butterflies we have here in Australia and we have had plenty of them this spring and summer!

I used my Stamparatus to setup all the stamp images to make it so much quicker and easier when making multiples of the one card – awesome!

The inside I stamped the sentiment and butterfly and rounded 2 corners of the Whisper White card stock using the Envelope Punch Board!

Paper Loop Decorations

Today, I have some cute Paper Loop Decorations that I have made with some retired Stampin’ Up! products, but I have a link below for our current DSPs that will only be available until 2 January, so get in quick.

They are so pretty and more flower-like than many other tutorials out there, which are mainly snowflakes shapes.  I made these for my close friends who catch up most Fridays for coffee!

A sugar hit for Boxing Day!

What a busy Christmas Day we had with all the family and extended family coming to our house to celebrate. I love seeing all the kids, cousins and our newest member, Conor who is 5 weeks old, join us! It is a time for no one being excluded and I love that everyone came who we had invited. The relaxed atmosphere and everyone helping themselves and feeling comfortable, made my day.

I can now share with you a couple of the kids gifts for my nieces and nephews. As they are getting older and they have everything they need, I find it difficult to buy for them, so we give them each a gift card. But this year, I wanted to make it a bit different to the usual gift card holder or just putting it in an envelope with a card, so I found these glass jars, placed the gift card inside and filled them up with lollies. I mean, what kid doesn’t love some extra sugar on Christmas Day, right?!!!

Gift Card Ideas for Christmas Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.jpg

To decorate the tops, I tied some ribbon around each one and added a monogram of their name (luckily they are all different initials) in glimmer paper, with a starburst punch of Christmas DSP and a circle die cut of coordinating card. How beautiful do they look?
