Farewell, feminine, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

She believed she could… so she did!

Hello Friends,

My project today is a quick and easy card using the This Little Piggy stamp set with the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the image.

I have only used the Pink Pirouette Combo pack of blends markers ($15.50) for this card to colour and blend the pig. Such great value! I did add some Wink of Stella to her wings though for a little extra sparkle!!!

Make a Wish Eclipse card using Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hello Friends,

My project today is a another Eclipse card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!

I love to personalise these cards, but sometimes it is also great to have some birthday cards on hand to use at the last minute, so I made this one for that occasion.

I love this colour combination of Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy!

The easiest way I found to get the letters lined up without them moving, was by putting some washi tape across the letters to hold them in place before die cutting. This also made it easier in the class setting to save time!

Personalised Birthday Eclipse card with Painted Harvest

Hello Friends,

My Eclipse card today uses the Painted Harvest stamp set and Large Letters Framelits dies, with the following colour combination.

TAMS Color Builder - Soft Suede, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie.jpgI made this card for one of my favourite teachers from my school days, whom I also ended up working with until her Retirement, Patsy.  She is such an amazing person who has so much to deal with but gets on with life, without any fuss. She was such an inspiration to me back in the 80s when she taught me Home Economics; cooking and sewing in Tasmania!

I still keep in touch with Patsy and every year I send her a card for her Birthday and Christmas. So here is her card for this year. I wish you all the best health and love today and always, Patsy. Happy Birthday!

The Eclipse card is a very popular technique at the moment and it works beautifully with this stamp set. The ribbon is retired but it was the perfect 1/4″ cotton ribbon in Pumpkin Pie to coordinate perfectly!

Watercolour Orchids

Hello Friends,

Today I share another card using the amazing, Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, and by purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

This card, I did something a bit backwards…. I die cut all the pieces first before colouring or stamping! Yes, I know it sounds a little weird but you will see why in a minute.

Watercolour Climbing Orchid card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia

I love the softness of the watercolouring of these flowers. I used an Aquapainter to apply ink to each of the petals allowing each colour to dry before adding the next.  The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The centre is a little dark so I added some Wink of Stella to glimmer it up!

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but I think “hello” can be used for so many occasions, I went with that!

What do you think of this watercolour look? Will you give it a try???

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!

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.

I have used: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Old Olive
