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.

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 25 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

Sometimes we get so crazy with the Holiday catalogue, that we forget about the Christmas products in the Annual catalogue, so today, my project uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and the coordinating Pretty Pines thinlits with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper!

All those beautiful pine needles layered together with the red glimmer berries just scream Christmas to me! I can almost smell the scent of pine lol

The background is embossed using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. A doily is added, then the oval stitched framelit in whisper white. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, from the At Home with You stamp set (oops, forgot the add that to the product list at the bottom of this post)!

A small piece of the Red Ribbon was attached behind each tree before adding each one to the stitched oval with a dimensional. A rhinestone was added to the top of each tree!

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!!!

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!

Fancy Folds for the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop!

AWHT Blog Hop September 2017 Fancy Folds.jpg

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art with Heart Team blog hop where we are focusing on fancy folds. You will find loads of creative inspiration tonight, showcasing different folding techniques and projects. Don’t be afraid of trying some Fancy Fold cards; they may look intimidating, but in fact, they are not that difficult to create.

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!

For my projects today I am using the Best Birds stamp set with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I love how striking this Designer Paper is too and I knew it had to be a focal point. #cutitnothhoardit

Fancy Fold Card #1

For my first card today, I am sharing a fairly simple fancy fold card, a Double Z Fold.

The card base is Pool Party card = 11⅜” x 5⅛” and score at 2¾” & 5½”. Trim off a 1″ strip from the bottom of the card which will create the double z fold. You just flip that strip over, so the shorter end is on the right as shown. Then you decorate as you like.  Here is my colour combination using the coordinating colours in the Designer Paper!

Fancy Fold Card #2

For my second one, I have a more advanced fancy fold card. I am sharing a style that I think is amazing, but I’ve never found it in Australian cardstock sizes, so I created my own A5 Gatefold Shutter card. It took quite a bit of time to figure out all the correct measurements, but I am super happy with the outcome. Now I have mastered it, I can whip them up in no time at all!

When you take off the belly band, the centre diamond opens to reveal a secret message inside!

Kids love this style of card, they think it’s like magic when it opens up. They look difficult to make, but if you follow the instructions, they are actually quite easy.

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 17: Bridge Fold card with FREE tutorial

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 17 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the At Home with You stamp set, the coordinating At Home Framelit dies and the Detailed Gate Thinlits die to create this Bridge Fold Christmas card!

Heart of Christmas Inspiration Bridge Fold card with TUTORIAL using Stampin Up At Home with You & Detailed Gate thinlits die by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. #cutitnothoardit #stampinup.JPG

I started by die cutting the gate in the new Champagne Foil sheet and I was surprised how gorgeous it was. Then I had to come up with a card to use it on… and because it is quite wide, I thought it was perfect for using on a bridge fold card, but I had to come up with a solution to make it sturdy and solid, so I added some Window Sheet behind the detailed gate and because it is clear, you don’t see it! Winner!!!

I love the red front door with the Christmas wreath on it, I think it really pops behind the front gate! I’ve really tried to set the theme here with the gorgeous front gate and looking through to the front door of the house!
