Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Nailed It with Urban Underground

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing the last of the four cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the Nailed It stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nailed It Urban Underground Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kelly Kent created that I saw on Pinterest.  I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging, so I often find myself scouring Pinterest for ideas.

This card really messes with my OCD too, stamping in such a random pattern, is something that I truly struggle with. We started with a square, stamped the images, then cut into 3 equal strips.

The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

And I always stamp the inside too!!!

Did you notice some new images today? Yes, I thought it was time to update my ‘branding’ and add some watercolour flowers in some of my favourite colours. What do you think of them? I love it!

Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Born to Ride

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing another of the cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the One Wild Ride stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kylie Bertucci created that I saw on Pinterest. It just stuck out to me as a quick and easy card to create but so masculine at the same time! I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging.

Masking Technique with Superman!

Dear Crafters,

Following all the excitement of OnStage, today I am sharing a card that we made at my Masculine class last week.

Masking Technique using Stampin Ups Everyday Hero Superman Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I love the buildings in this stamp set, but having just the one layer of buildings, just didn’t seem to do my card justice, so I added many layers using the masking technique!

Most of the ladies just looked at me as though, “you have to be kidding”, when I showed them what we were about to make, especially with the fussy cutting around the character, but I think they actually were very impressed with their final works!

Birthday, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Hope your day is on cloud nine

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am flying to Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event to be held tomorrow at Luna Park!  I am very excited, as this is the launch of the brand new Annual Catalogue, and only those demonstrators who attend the event, get to see the catalogue before anyone else. Also, I have a little secret to share… I am also one of the display stampers! Yes, I have been busy creating for the past couple of weeks with brand new catalogue items that no one has seen. I am very nervous about displaying my projects, but I am sure they will be okay 😉

When I return home, I will be able to share some pics of my displays with you, but not until Tuesday 11th April, so make sure you tune in then!

So today’s card with the sentiment Hope your day is on cloud nine, is kind of appropriate, as that is how we will be feeling tomorrow as we get that catalogue in our hands!!!!!

Lift Me Up Hot Air Balloons Masculine card by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Australia. Occasions 2017

I love the simplicity of this card and the colours coordinate so well. We made this in my class on Saturday and the ladies loved it.

The colours are: Dapper Denim, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky & Very Vanilla

I wasn’t sure about adding a bow to this card, seeing as it was masculine, so we added a little linen thread tied in a knot…. perfect!

What do you think of this card?

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Nailed It Masculine Card

Dear Crafters,

Yesterday saw the release of 3 brand new Sale-a-bration items. Did you add any or all of them to your order? I had to have the glimmer paper, I just couldn’t go without some extra glitter!

Today, I have a masculine card using the Nailed It stamp set and coordinating Build It Framelits. I am certainly not a confident creator of masculine cards and I honestly don’t have too many boys or men in my life who I need to get creative for, but when I saw this one in the Occasions catalogue, I knew it was definitely one to add to the shopping cart!

The Specialty Designer Series Paper, Urban Underground, is the perfect compliment.

nailed-it-masculine-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions2017-side

I love the little sentiments and stamps and small enough to embellish the background of the white circle layer.

I made a second card, to show how you can step it up for a more advanced stamper. Can you see the differences?

nailed-it-masculine-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions2017

The second card has a lot of sponged edges and extra embellishments!

nailed-it-masculine-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions2017-stepped-up

On this close up, you can see that I sponged the edges of the hammer the white circle, gray banner and the Designer Series Paper.

I have to admit, I am not a fan of the colour Delightful Dijon and as an In Colour that is retiring in June, I won’t be sad to say goodbye, BUT I do actually like it with this card 😉 It has certainly surprised me and I will be making many more masculine cards with it!

What do you think of these cards? For the stamper who cannot afford to have all the products, the first card is very achievable, however with a few extra dollars to buy the embellishments and some sponge daubers, you can add that extra touch.
