Birthday Bonanza Shaker card

Do you love a shaker card? Here is a cute one using the Birthday Bonanza DSP and the Birthday Goodness stamp set!

The shaker part of the card is created like a window box so there is no stickiness like when using Foam Adhesive Strips, for the sequins to stick to. This way they move freely inside the box.

I had some star & heart sequins left over from a few years ago so they are not the exact colours as used in the card, however they are a similar but lighter tones, so they work well!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the cake tower in Grapefruit Grove ink then added a strip of the same DSP as the front of the card. Both of these stamps are from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

Masking Little Ladybugs

Have a look at this single layer card often known as Simple Stamping! It has loads of colour and doesn’t necessarily need lots of layers, just simple colouring.

However, if you look a little closer, you may see that I have used the Masking Technique with the flowers to give the feeling of depth in the images.

The inside has a sentiment and some more of the little ladybugs stamped across the bottom and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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.

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.

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.

Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

Masculine Trifold card to sail home

Tonight’s card is a fancy trifold card using the Sailing Home bundle. Purchase this stamp set and coordinating dies together and save 10%.

don’t you just love these colours together? I sure do and they are Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate and a Soft Suede wheel!

Trifold card using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019 Fancy Folds

I love using Designer paper as the card base. When they are double sided, you want to show off both sides of the paper and this is a great fold to do this. Don’t you agree?

Trifold card using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019 Fancy Folds open

I popped up the lighthouse and the anchor on dimensionals for added depth and tied a little piece of twine through the anchor.

This card was inspired by Jackie Bolhuis however, I used different measurements. You can see her video here.

What I used:
Come Sail Away DSP – 6″ x 12″, score at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾”.
Whisper White card – 2¾” x 4″ and 3¾” x 5½”

Yikes, a teenager in the house!

Thirteen years ago my first born arrived (after a 30+ hour labour and 9lbs) into our home turning us into a family!

I cannot believe where the time has gone, but she has been such a joy and gorgeous girl, growing into an amazing teenager. Her favourite colour is Aqua and she is not a girly, girl who likes dresses, pink or sparkles. So today’s card has been quite challenging to create.

All I knew was I needed to start with the colour palette and put 13 somewhere on the card. I got out Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pretty Peacock and thought about doing an ombre effect.

I grabbed the Piece of Cake stamp set…. I mean, who doesn’t like cake for their birthday, right?!!!

13th Birthday Card using Stampin Up Piece of Cake by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019  Handmade.JPG

To line up all those 13 cakes, yep, I managed to stamp 13 cakes, did you count them?!! The Stamparatus was the tool to use, because it was the perfect size for the clear plates to move across one notch at at time and re-stamp again and again.

Once I had stamped all those cakes and cut the white card to size, I die cut the numbers into the centre of the cake tower. I layered up the base card of Pretty Peacock, with a layer of the Noble Peacock Foil and then glued the white card front to it. The numbers were left out and Mini dimensionals were used, doubled up for the height, and added so that the foil could shine through.

I finished by adding some Wink of Stella to the numbers as well as the cake at the top!

Simple Stamping for the AWHT Blog Hop

Simple Stamping Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring Simple Stamping, which means our projects feature only paper, stamps and ink. It’s a great way to create a quick and easy card for new stampers or for when you need a card at short notice. These projects highlight how Stampin’ Up! ink, paper and card stock coordinates perfectly.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Christina Barnes. 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!

Card 1: This doesn’t have a lot of stamping, just the one sentiment stamped onto vellum, but it showcases some of the stunning Designer papers Stampin’ Up! produce. Just one piece of DSP cut twice evenly and glued to the card. A very simple way to use stamps, ink & paper!

Card 2: created using the Clear Stamp Block ‘E’ as a stamp, pressing it directly onto the stamp pad. I used Daffodil Delight in the centre and then added Balmy Blue at one end and Pear Pizzazz at the other. Then I spritzed it with some water before stamping the block directly onto the Shimmery White card.

Simple Stamping using Stampin Up Silhouette Scenes & Colourful Seasons by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019

While waiting for this to dry, go ahead and fold your Pear Pizzazz card base in half and add a layer of Basic Black card. Now that the ink has dried, stamp the branch & flowers (Colourful Seasons stamp set) and the girl on the swing and sentiment (Silhouette Scenes stamp set) all in Memento Black ink. Glue this layer to the card.

Don’t you just love swinging on a swing? This was one of my “perfect places to be” when I was a kid!!!

Card 3: uses the gorgeous stamp sets, Beautiful FriendshipI had a piece of paper in the shape of an oval sitting on my desk, so I placed it in the centre of the card and stamped the floral images around it, creating that central focus point.

Then I stamped the sentiment using the new Kindness & Compassion stamp set.

Cards 4&5: are some Thank you cards for my daughter’s netball coaches. Their team are called the ‘Roses’, so I thought Beautiful Friendship was the perfect stamp set to use. The images are stamped in Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Purple Posy, Granny Apple Green for the leaves, sentiment and card base.

I adore this one with the roses stamped in Mango Melody and Calypso Coral. The other colours are the same as the previous card. The sentiment is from the

Silhouette Birthday Sprinkled with Pigment!

Tonight I have used the new Pigment Sprinkles and created a real mess 🤣

Pigment Sprinkles

 

I began with some of the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, added some sprinkles and spritzed with water…. wow, does it take you by surprise with the brightness of the colours, amazing! I put it aside and while waiting for it to dry, I got out the Silhouette Scenes bundle, Garden Green and Night of Navy cardstock and got started creating the card.

I knew I was going to die cut the tree from the watercolour paper so I worked out where I was going to stamp the image of the girl on the swing and place the sentiment (Magnolia Blooms). I did this in Night of Navy ink using the Stamparatus, so I could re-ink the images multiple times for a darker image.

Silhouette Scenes Bundle using Stampin Up Pigment Sprinkles by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019 Handmade Birthday Card.JPG

Once the watercolour paper was dry, I die cut it with the tree die and glued it to the card. Check out the colours on it – you couldn’t get that sort of colouring without these pigment sprinkles. You need to get them and play, but a little tip, buy some disposable gloves!!!
