Versamark Resist Technique with Paint Play

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Versamark resist technique. It is really simple but effective. Start with glossy white card and stamp the flowers with Versamark ink. Let it sit for a few minutes, while you score your Night of Navy card and cut a strip of Berry Burst and Powder pink. Glue these together and then stamp the sentiment for the retiring Butterfly Basics stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

Now the glossy card has had a bit of time to rest, it will still be sticky, but you can now go and ink up the sponge brayer and apply across the entire gloss card. Once you have the desired coverage, using a piece of paper towel, rub in circular motions to remove the ink from the versamark images. Cut the glossy card down to size and glue to the base card. Add the sentiment strip.

To finish it off, I added some of the Glitter enamel dots, they are so divine and add that little bit of sparkle. I also added a Berry Burst Bitty Bow.

Both of the stamp sets and the embellishments will be retiring and are only available while stocks last. Be sure to add them to your shopping cart now.

Stamparatus Storage for your craft desk

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project that I have created to store my brand new Stamparatus in while it sits on my craft desk!!!

Yes, I got mine early in the first release, but never fear, it will soon be in the upcoming Annual catalogue to purchase. When you see it in action, believe me, it will be at the top of your shopping list. It is awesome!

Stamparatus storage using Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstator, Australia.

The Designer paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack and I hadn’t used it as the print is very bold and large, but I do actually like it and think it is a very happy design and makes me smile. So what better way to use it, than cover this box/storage for my Stamparatus. I just cut down the box that it came in, and covered it with the DSP.

Here is the back with the stand I made out of some of the cardboard backings which come with the foil sheets! Waste not, want not!!!

I cut it down to 6″ x 6″ and then scored one side at 2½” & 3½”. Using a pencil, I marked ½” from each scoreline.

Then I rotated 90 degrees and marked 1″ at the opposite end with a pencil on the top and bottom. From this mark to the v” mark cut both sides so you end up with a triangle type shape. Place the largest of the Lots of Labels framelits dies 2½” from the top, lining it up inside the centre of the scorelines. Place it in the Big Shot, but don’t run it all the way through, just about 1½” or so. Where you stop cutting with the framelit, use scissors to cut to the scorelines on each side, then you can fold on the scorelines and glue together.

Not sure if this makes sense, but you can probably see what I mean from the picture below.

Blossoming Basket Bundle & Hello Stamparatus

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the new Level 2 items in the latest release Sale-a-bration brochure (see below). This is a bundle with any $180+ order that you can select for FREE. It is the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the coordinating Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder which are just stunning!

I am so excited, my Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) which will be available in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, arrived this week just in time to create this card.

Stamparatus

I was able to stamp the basket using the right side plate and then the sentiment, butterfly and the tag on the top plate, stamping all 3 images at once!!! How cool is that?!!!

The images were stamped with Archival Black ink onto Shimmery White card.  I used the blender pen with inkpads to colour the images, to allow for the required shading I wanted.

I loved how this card turned out, so I wanted to share it with my class ladies on Saturday. They were stunned with the Stamparatus and also loved this bundle. I allowed them to colour their image with whatever tones they liked. They chose Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder & Perfect Plum.  Which one is your favourite?

Stunning Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick and easy card using the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit & Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalogue.

The blue punched detail behind the Designer Series Paper is Marina Mist card cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and only a small amount showing, as I only wanted a hint of blue.  The floral image is some of the vellum embellishments from the kit, which has been coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers.

The Stitched Shapes Framelits are cut in glossy white card and added with dimensionals. The metal embellishments are from the Petal Passion Suite and are added with a glue dot. The Berry Burst Metal Edged ribbon was added with a small staple before the DSP was glued to the front of the card.

Blooms of Heartfelt Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sympathy card using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

It is never easy to create a sympathy card when you need one, but having some on hand makes the journey so much easier when it is required. So today, I have this quick and easy card for that very occasion.

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, Saleabration 2018.jpg

This card is 4¼” x 4¼” in Rich Razzleberry, layered with Whisper White.

Look at the detail in this stamp!!!! When I opened the stamp case, I took one look at this floral stamp and thought it was so flat and wouldn’t have very much detail, it even felt  flat and smooth to touch, but I was so glad to be proven wrong. Check it out!

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia Saleabration 2018

The images are stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink and then I coloured it lightly with my Watercolour Pencils. Oh and I adore the font in the sentiment, it is so pretty!

Triple Time Technique with Petal Palette

Dear Crafters,

Today I share these wonderful cards that the ladies made at my first class for 2018 last Saturday, using the Petal Palette stamp set in the Occasions catalogue. They were amazed at this technique and were happy to be able to take home a written tutorial to be able to recreate them in their own time (one of the perks of attending my classes).

We made two cards, one was the centred layers and the other was a side step layer. We started with the side step layer card to show them the basics of how it works, then the next card I allowed them to choose which stamps they would like to use from the set. You can see that they chose different combinations, which was fantastic to see what they came up with. I also had one of the Saleabration stamp sets, Heartfelt Blooms, which they could use the sentiment, Thinking of You in that pretty font.

We stamped the images on Whisper White card with Archival Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Write markers.
