Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Mother's Day, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Red Roses are so delightful

Today’s card is a very simple project using Stampin’ Up!s Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits, Petals & more!

This card does not have a sentiment on it as yet, but it could be used for so many different occasions; Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Easter, the options are endless!

Petal Palette & Tin Tile TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

The Real Red card base is embossed using the Big Shot and the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The flowers are stamped onto Shimmery White card with Memento Black ink and coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I find it much easier to colour them first before cutting them out! I added some dimensionals to the back of the die cut and then some of the Copper Metallic Thread before placing onto the front of the card (even my nails match the card, lol).

The 1/8″ solid Real Red ribbon at the top was wrapped around the card. A tip here is to start tying the knot, but before completing the bow, place a glue dot under the join to help hold it tight and in place, then finish to tie the bow! It really does help in getting that perfect bow to sit nicely, rather than adding a bow separately.

The inside is decorated simply with another of the smaller flower bud images and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Gorgeous Grape!!!

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

Colour Creations Blog Hop Gorgeous Grape Jar of Love Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Bench Fold card with Varied Vases Bundle

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a bench fold card that uses the Varied Vases bundle from the brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. This is a wonderful bundle which has 34 photopolymer stamps in the set and a coordinating punch to cut out the images. The best part is that it’s only $68.25 for the bundle!

The Wood Textures DSP is also carrying over into this new catalogue, which is wonderful news. This rarely happens but it has been so popular and it coordinates with so many of our wonderful products.

This was the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day this year ♥

Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

Varied Vases & Stamparatus 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Varied Vases punch lining up by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!

The vase was stamped off once with the Blueberry Bushel ink to get that lighter look!

This Lavender stamp set is going to get lots of use; not only for birthday cards, but also for Sympathy, Mother’s Day, Thinking of You and I have lots of ideas to incorporate it into some traditional scrapbook pages.

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last 

Climbing Orchid by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!

Bundle of Love meets Ribbon of Courage

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and coordinating framelits dies, with the stunning Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

TAMS Color Builder - blushing bride, gold, vanilla, wild wasabi.jpg

Ribbon of Courage meets Bundle of Love by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia #cutitnothoardit #cancer.jpg

I love how there are so many uses for this stamp set which was designed by Patty Bennett, a US Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and million dollar sales achiever!!! Yes, you heard it, she has sold over $1 million of Stampin’ Up! products in her career, and because of that massive achievement, Stampin’ Up! recognise & reward those amazing people with a trip to the home office in Utah and to design their own stamp set. How cool is that?!!! I’m sure there are many other things they also receive, but this is what I love about this wonderful company we work for!

The ribbon image was stamped in versamark ink, gold embossed and heat set before being die cut with the Support Ribbon framelits and popped up with some dimensionals. The flowers and leaves are also from the same framelits set and I added them behind for a little bit of colour!

Using this sentiment, you could give this card to anyone who is going through a tough time and this bundle is perfect for creating cards for those having treatment, whether it be for cancer or any other disease. I know in the future I will be creating some cards for those suffering with Multiple Sclerosis, just like myself 😦  You know, there is nothing better than going to the mailbox and finding some happy mail to cheer you up 🙂

Look at all that gold shining on this card, who wouldn’t want to open an envelope to see this inside?!!!!

The sequins on the inside are the old 2013-2015 In Colour sequin pack, but they actually coordinate quite well with the colours in this DSP!

The large letter framelits were used to create the negative image for the front of the card, creating the shaker section…. but I also used the positive images for the inside of the card! No waste in this house!!!! lol

The sentiment, Happy Mother’s Day is from the Crazy About You stamp set and the flowers stamped on the MUM dies cuts is from brand new Colourful Seasons stamp set.
