Now let’s get started!

My chosen Sale-a-bration product to showcase tonight is the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, free with any $90 order. I just love the images in this 5 piece stamp set. The font of the sentiments is so feminine and it is so versatile for any occasion.

This card is a lovely monotone in Crumb Cake and White. The layer is a piece of Crumb Cake card, cut 5mm smaller than the card front. I used the stunning Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the layer before gluing it to the card front.

The image is stamped twice onto Crumb Cake card in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut the entire image out and then the second one, I just fussy cut the flowers & leaves, so I could layer them on top for extra dimension.

In the past I would have coloured the flowers with the Craft White Ink and an AquaPainter, however, I used the White Chalk Marker. It was so much easier!

I added a few Rhinestones for some bling!

The inside I stamped the image in second generation stamping (stamped off once on plain paper before onto the card). The sentiment is stamped full strength.

This next card is created exactly the same way, however, I added some colour with Stampin’ Blends Markers to the flowers for a beautiful spot of colour. I changed up the Rhinestones with Champagne ones!

I even coloured the cake stand on this one to help it stand out more.

Here are both the cards, side by side. Which one is your favourite?

Even better news, is that there will be coordinating dies for this stamp set which will be available next month!!! Yay, no more fussy cutting all those small flowers 😆

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.

Best Dressed DSP & Little Ladybug Hostess Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia 1

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.

Best Dressed DSP & Little Ladybug Hostess Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia m

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.

Beautiful Moments in Grace’s Garden

I just adore this bundle of Grace’s Garden. Maybe it is because it’s my daughters name, but also I love cottage gardens full of flowers! I also wanted to use the Beautiful Moments stamp set, as it has the image of two little girls holding hands, another reminder of my own two girls ♥

Beautiful Moments & Grace's Garden Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.jpg

The image of the two little girls with the sand buckets was used in my card, however I didn’t need them carrying buckets into the garden. I just wanted them holding hands, so I coloured the lines of the image I wanted with my Black Stampin’ Write Marker, gave it a huff of hot air before stamping it onto some white card. Then I fussy cut the image before colouring it.

For the path under the rose arbour, I used the Tasteful Textures stamp set with Crumb Cake ink. I also sponged it a little to blend the colour better.

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!!!

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

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.

Christmas card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front.jpg

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 Timeless Tropical

Tonight I have another sneak peek for some Tropical goodness available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

The Tropical Oasis Suite is one not to miss. You can see loads of this suite used on this card; the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Topics dies, Coastal Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Tropical Oasis Trinkets and the Braided Burlap Trim!

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

How gorgeous is that Coastal Weave embossing folder?!!! Oh my, I just adore it! I sponged the edges of this layer with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

The Braided Burlap Ribbon is soft and at the ends, I pulled it gently so that it started to unravel for a more coastal feel. I tied one of the trinkets to it with some Linen Thread.

The Hibiscus flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink and then I used a Blender Pen to gently move some of the colour around. This method was also used on the leaves (Garden Green ink). The centre of the flower is coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker with some Wink of Stella on the stamen.
