Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

No matter who we are, we are all the same on the inside!

Today’s card is a small token (with a big bunch of bright pink gerbera flowers) of thanks for a dear friend of mine who has been so supportive of me in my fight with MS. She’s wanted to support and help me in easing the pressure of learning to drive again (using hand controls) to regain some independence. She setup a Go Fund Me page and  I cannot thank everyone enough with how generous they have been. Yesterday I had another driving lesson which took us through busy Dandenong, learning to park and drive through unpredictable and unknown areas. I am so determined to do this and with Lisa’s help it is feeling closer than ever. Thank you xxx

Here is the card I made her using the Artfully Aware stamp set from pg46 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This is the perfect stamp set, don’t you think?!

I stamped the ribbon image multiple times in the background in Petal Pink and used the Wink of Stella to colour each one (the photo doesn’t do it justice).

The image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

How good does the layering of the different punched pieces look? I also dry embossed them with different embossing folders for extra texture. The embellishment of the ladies wrist is a retired Glitter Epoxy Shape, but I thought is was cute.

You know friends really are so supportive and being International Women’s Day, it was the absolute perfect time to share this.

My 2nd card has a softer, feminine look. I have used Soft Sea Foam, Powder Pink, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. The coordinating dies to cut out the Painted Seasons images will be available to purchase in March and they are an amazing addition and a must have to save on fussy cutting!

Gingham, Origami & Butterflies.. what more could you want?!!

Today is my mum’s 70th birthday, and we will have a lovely celebration this weekend for her but in the meantime, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! I can’t share her card with you just yet either, so I have a design we made at my recent class using the Butterfly Gala Suite.

This Gingham Gala paper is super versatile, you can use it for any type of project; masculine or feminine!

butterfly gala origami window card by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

On the inside I simply glued a piece of gingham paper and another small stamped butterfly. I would also add a sentiment of Happy Birthday or Thinking of You, but I haven’t worked out who I am giving it to just yet.

Colour Creations: Pineapple Punch Window card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 37th colour; Pineapple Punch.

I love this vibrant and bright colour and it is one of the many colours in the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper and so I had to use this in my project today.

Window card using Stampin Up Butterfly Gala, Happiness Blooms Occasions 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

First, I glued the DSP to the front of the card before using the layering squares framelits to cut the window. Then I used that same die with the larger scallop die to cut out the Pineapple Punch frame to glue on top of the DSP around the window.

I stamped and punched out the large butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.

Inside the card, I added a smaller white card, folded in half. I placed glue only on the bottom panel, so the top panel could stay like this when you open the card. Once this was in place, I closed the card and glued the butterfly onto the white card through the window so I could centre it perfectly.

When the card is fully open, it looks like this!

I added another butterfly to the corner of the card and will add a sentiment when the time is right for the occasion. I tied a piece of the Pineapple Punch Grosgrain ribbon through the centre of the card and tied it in a bow at the front.

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 36th colour; Petal Pink.

This colour has more of an apricot tone and it is one of the many colours in the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I have gone with the Bargello Technique again to create the background. You may have seen me use this Technique in last Friday’s post.

My Colour Combination is: Petal Pink, Berry Burst, Old Olive

I die cut a Vellum oval and embossed it with the Needlepoint Elements Framelit. I did this so it didn’t totally hide that gorgeous Bargello background.

Bargello Technique with Fable Friends & All My Love DSP

Today, my card uses some left over strips from the Bargello Technique from an ATC card swap share I took part in during January with the Art With Heart Team.

How stunning is this colour combination of Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lpstick and White?!!!

Fable Friends Bargello Technique by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

I stamped the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set in Memento black ink and coloured her using Stampin’ Blends markers. I cut her out with paper snips and popped her up on dimensionals on the layering ovals. I added two little pearls to her coat. Isn’t she the cutest?!!!

The pearls in the top corner were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card. I adore this Lovely Lipstick ribbon which is part of the All My Love Combo pack.

Colour Creations: Pear Pizzazz for an Amazing Life

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 35th colour; Pear Pizzazz.

I am using the Amazing Life Stamp set with the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. The card base is Pear Pizzazz, stamped with the same ink with the floral image. The centres of each of these flowers has some Wink of Stella for some shine!

amazing life & floral romance sdsp by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

I die cut the stitched rectangle and stamped the images. I added the two strips of DSP then the white rectangle to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. The flower in the corner was stamped with Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz card and some of the DSP in Petal Pink ink, then fussy cut out. These were added with a dimensional.

The open words “cake” and “YAY” have some Wink of Stella applied to colour them in!

On the inside of the card, I simply stamped the 3-tiered birthday cake and sentiment. The flame has some Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t really show in the photos.

Hello Beautiful, Butterfly Gala

Hi, if you follow my blog, you will be seeing loads of butterflies as this is one of my favourite suites in the Occasions catalogue. I also love how so many products coordinate with the Gingham Gala DSP, Gingham Gala adhesive backed Sequins, Organdy Ribbon Pack and the Botanical Butterfly DSP. It really does make card making so easy and takes the stress away and just allows you to create. This is the reason I became a demonstrator almost 6 years ago!

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

The Stitched Rectangle Framelits dies are not really suited for our Australian card stock sizes, however, I love them and will try anything to make them work for us Aussies! As you can see, I cut a piece of Gingham Gala DSP to the same A5 card size and placed the framelit towards the top and cut it out. I glued this to my card base. I cut a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP and then cut it in half and placed it inside the frame. I used some of the Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon across the top and added a bow.

I stamped the butterflies, punched them out and added a sentiment to the top section of the card. I also added some sequins and then finished with Wink of Stella on the butterflies, including the ones on the DSP!

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

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.

classic garage dsp & butterlfy gala origami window masculine card stampin up occasions by kate morgan australia 2019.

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.
