Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share 4 cards that are quick and easy to create using the Picture Perfect Party 6×6 Designer Series Paper stack. For these 4 cards, I have only used 2 of the sheets of DSP. One side of these papers are photographic shots and they are so life-like!

This card uses Peekaboo Peach for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add two strips of the Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Berry Burst for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Basic Black for the card base. Glue a piece of 3¾” x 5½” DSP to the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Number of Years stamp set onto the 4″ x 1½” vellum in Berry Burst ink. Die cut the number 9 using the Large Numbers dies in Berry Burst card. Using a sponge dauber, apply a thin layer of Tombo Multipurpose glue. This is the only way to add vellum without the glue showing through! Add the 9 with mini dimensionals.

This card uses Lemon Lime Twist for the card base. Use a 2½” strip of DSP across the centre of the card, but add the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch out behind before gluing to the card. Add a piece of Berry Burt Metallic edged ribbon across the bottom of the DSP then tie a bow and glue it on! Die cut the numbers using the Large Numbers dies from Silver Glimmer card and add with mini dimensionals.

I cannot believe that the Number of Years stamp set and the coordinating dies are about to retire 😦 I use them all the time for kids birthday cards and if you too haven’t purchased them yet, make sure you add them to your shopping cart before they are gone!

Really going to miss this little bunny…

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using mainly products that will be retiring on 31 May and will be selling fast over the coming weeks.

Here is one of my favourite colour combinations and two of these will be retiring 😦

I was a bit sad that this cute little bunny stamp set was retiring, but it is one that I will be hanging on to. It is so versatile, it is great for baby cards as well as Easter!

It may be easier to tell you what product isn’t retiring (not including tools, eg Big Shot): whisper white cardstock, classic label punch and the sahara sand, crumb cake & soft suede inks. That’s all, everything else is only available while stocks last!

I am really going to miss those Lots of Labels dies too, I use them loads 😦

I did use the Stamparatus to stamp the bunny as I made a few of these cards. It’s so much quicker to have the stamps lined up and then you just change the plates each time to stamp. More on that though once the Stamparatus is available on 1 June 🙂

The sponging around the edge of the die cut was done with Pink Pirouette and then a lighter layer of Rose Red just on the edges. Isn’t is pretty?!!!

I have used Basic Black as my card base for a striking effect. Using coordinating colour card as a square behind the DSP brings the colours all together. along with the stunning ribbons, tied with a bow.

Happy Dino-rrific 6th Birthday!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a 6th birthday card using the No Bones About It stamp set from the Annual catalogue. This is a photopolymer set, so it is completely clear to see exactly where you are stamping, which you need to create this card!

You see the card base is Emerald Envy with a large circle die cut in the centre.

Next I decorated the inside of the card with washi tape, and glued the layer down. Then I closed the card and stamped the solid image of the dinosaur through the circle to centre it.

I then die cut a large circle of window sheet, slightly bigger than the one used on the front of the card and glued it to the front. I then die cut the black scallop circle using 2 of the Layering Circles Framelits dies to create a border which is glued on top again to hide the edges of the window sheet.

Then I stamped the skeleton of the dinosaur on the window sheet with Archival black ink, so as to line it up perfectly.

Here you can see the layers of how the card opens with the window sheet on the front and the solid image stamped on the inside of the card!

The sentiment was stamped on white card and I used the Everyday Label punch to cut it out. It was too big, so I cut it down further by placing it back in the punch and making it smaller. The Leaf punch was used and added with mini dimensionals.

Here’s the inside of the card. I added the large number 6 die cut in silver foil. I used up some of my retired washi tape with the current Myths and Magic washi tape for some added sparkle!

Today I share my favourite Sale-a-bration product, and hands down, it has to be this bright and colourful Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz. Here are the colours:

Bubbles & Fizz DSP.jpg

I wanted to show you all the different designs, so what better way to do it, than with the herringbone technique!

Bubble Over Suite Bubbles & Fizz DSP Stampin Up Saleabration 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia..jpg

I sliced the DSP into 1/2″ x 12″ strips. I took a piece of scrap card cut to 4″ x 5-5/8″ and covered it in Fast Fuse. Then I began placing the strips starting with the Lemon Lime Twist bubbles one across the centre. I kept adding strips in different directions, cutting them off at the edge of the card. This creates an amazing background!

The Stitched Shapes Circle Framelits, break up all the straight lines and helps take the eye to the feature of the bottle like a target.

I die cut the large bottle in white card from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies. I used a sponge dauber to add some Lemon Lime Twist ink to it, applying more at the bottom and lighter at the top. Check out those gorgeous Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes on the bottle. I even used some of the extra strips to decorate the inside of the card!

For my next card, I have used the same Designer Series Paper with the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure with the Trifold Shutter card technique.

I coloured the images using a blender pen and ink pads; Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate. The Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to die cut the shoes image.

As you can see, this DSP can be used in many different ways, not just with the Bubble Over Suite!

Epic Celebrations in Triple Time

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a masculine kids card using the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

I really struggle to create masculine cards, but when we used the Triple Time Stamping Technique in my last class, I thought this stamp set would be perfect.

The images are stamped in Basic Black ink and then coloured lightly with Watercolour Pencils and blended with Blender Pens.

Colour Inkspiration Challenge with Sweet Little Something

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Little Something stamp set that I created for a colour challenge on a fb page, Colour Inkspiration! I just love this set and I have made a few bunny rabbit cards already and you can see them again here & here!

26195845_10209659186471375_3083422403049567311_n

I stamped the bunny with only one colour, Night of Navy. It is a 3 step stamping process, so the first image is stamped in the full tone, the second image is stamped off once and the third image is stamped off twice! I really love the effect.

Sweet Little Something Bunny, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia.

The Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates the perfect background texture for this fluffy little bunny with his gingham ribbon bow.

You may or may not notice that the Lots of Labels Framelits dies look a little shorter? Well, I wanted it to frame the bunny a bit closer, so once I stamped him, I lined up the framelit in the big shot closer to his head and cut. I then moved the diecut in the same die closer to his feet and ran it though the big shot again just at that end, not all the way through. I then did the same with the Lemon Lime Twist piece behind!
