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

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

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.

Goodbye Succulents

Dear Crafters,

Wow, can you believe it is already May?!!! Neither can I and that means it’s the month for celebrating our wonderful mums!

So, today I am sharing two cards that I have made for Mother’s Day, using the retiring Succulent Garden Suite 😦 I know I am not the only one who is upset by this suite retiring, I think nearly every Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is also sad.

If you also love this suite, be quick, as it is only while stocks last.

Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the Hostess stamp set, Floral Wings which also coordinates with our Bold Butterfly Framelits.

I have no idea what this style is called, but I find it quite effective. I cut down a piece of Whisper White card by 5mm on each side. I stamped the butterfly image in the centre and then measured in the same distance from each side towards the centre and drew a line down, but not across the wings. I then cut out that centre portion leaving the butterfly intact.

My colour scheme: Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

I then stamped the floral images along each edge and added the sentiment.

I embossed the base card with the Elegant Dots TIEF using the Big Shot machine, before adhering the stamped piece.

Tea with flowers

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card that I created with Mother’s Day in mind!

It isn’t too far away and we need to start thinking about this very special day we celebrate in honour of our mums who have done so much for us to raise us into beautiful human beings.

My colour scheme: Daffodil Delight, Lost Lagoon, Perfect Plum & Whisper White.

IMG_5633

I stamped the Petite Petals images multiple times on Whisper White card stock before punching them out with the coordinating punch. The tea cup and spoon are from the Cups & Kettle Framelits dies in the Occasions 2016 catalogue.

I cut a doily into quarters and only used 1 piece. The spoon is Smoky Slate card stock with a little Wink of Stella added to the tip.

A small pearl embellishment was added to each flower to finish it off.
