Birthday, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

It’s a piece of cake for a 21st!

Today, I am sharing a card that I was asked to make for friend’s friend. The brief was Black, Silver & Gold, 21st birthday of a young lady named Lia. I like to try and use all the info when making these special occasion cards and I think I have met the brief. What do you think?

The black card base has a layer of Gold Foil with another black card layer over the top. A silver square layer with another smaller black layer with a 1-3/4″ circle punched out of the centre. The 21 are cut with the retired Little Numbers dies which are still so handy to have! The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Holiday catalogue was the perfect finishing touch.

I have used the new Piece of Cake stamp set and coordinating Cake Builder punch from the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue. The cake stand is punched in gold foil and the cake is stamped in Versamark and gold emboss powder added and heat set. I then added some Wink of Stella over the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and added LIA using the large letter framelits dies in black card with a wash of Champagne Mist Shimmer paint applied with an AquaPainter.

Colour Creations: Melon Mambo in Needlepoint

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Melon Mambo!!!  This was one of the first colours I purchased through Stampin Up almost 6 years ago, I just love it.

This card uses the Needlepoint Nook suite of products from the upcoming Occasions catalogue, which will be available to purchase in January 2019. If you would like to get these earlier, you can join my team and purchase them in December (one of the perks of being a demonstrator)!

I have used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody and Pool Party as my colour combination.

I love when a stamp set has coordinating framelits, it makes it so much easier than fussy cutting images. I also love the faux stitching die used as the background on the Pool Party card, don’t you?!!!

On the inside I’ve added the sentiment in Pool Party ink and I can think of many recipients I could give this card too at this moment in time. I love the mixed fonts; it gives it a little something extra!

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

Tonight I’m sharing a sneak peek of one of the bundles in the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue; Piece of Cake stamp set with coordinating Cake Builder punch!

If you would like to get your hands on some of these new products before next year, you can do so by joining my team and adding this to your starter kit. Ask me how!

Piece of Cake for Colour Creations Mango Melody Blog Hop, Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

My card base is Mango Melody and I randomly stamped the cake image on the same ink colour across the front of the card. I stamped the same image on Whisper White card and punched it out with the Cake Builder punch. I also stamped the flowers and fussy cut them to add to the top of the cake. I applied Wink of Stella to the flowers and the flowers on the cake. Not sure if you can see that in the photo?!

The stand is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold emboss powder. I coloured part of it with the Stampin Write Marker. I layered some Coastal Cabana card and white card with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. These layers were all sponged around the edges with a dauber.

The sentiment is stamped and the Classic Label Punch to cut it out and add with a dimensional.

Designer Series Paper, feminine, Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

Thank You, Petal Palette

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a thank you card using the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP). The stamp set and coordinating dies are carrying over into the new annual catalogue, however, they will be single items and not sold as a bundle, so if you want to save 10%, add it to your order now!

This DSP is not carrying over, so if you want it, get it now! The designs are black and white, but you will see how adding a bit of colour changes everything!

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

This is coloured using the Stampin’ Blends before gluing it to the centre of the card. I then added two strips of the Rich Razzleberry washi tape to either side and then a thin gold strip of washi tape over the join.

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and the two flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink (stamped off once) for a lighter shade. Notice the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon? Yes, that is new and will be available in the annual catalogue. It is so luscious and it was the perfect accent for this card. The 2″ circle punch was used to punch out the sentiment and added with dimensionals.

The Petal Palette Bundle is carrying over as individual items, so I would advise you to get it now as a bundle and save the extra 10%.

I added a couple of small basic pearls to the centre of the flowers in the circle.

Celebrate Amazing You for another Silver Promotion!

Dear Crafters,

Wow, it’s the last day of April, where is this year going?!! I need time to slow down so we can enjoy the last month of the current Annual catalogue and the Occasions catalogue before they are gone. Plus, today I have another team member who has promoted to Silver this month!

Here is the gift I made for Andrea, who has promoted to Silver! I am so proud of her and all of her achievements.

Silver Promotion earrings using Petal Passion Embellishments by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up, Australia.

I made these Silver earrings using the Petal Passion Embellishments. Then I made this gift holder using the Envelope punch board and put the earrings inside. When you open it up, the earrings slide up. The silver ribbon is retired, but it was perfect for my project, as was the Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the Dapper Denim circle (one of Andrea’s favourite retiring colours). The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink. The Petal Palette Bundle is carrying over, however you would be advised to get it now as a bundle and save the extra 10% then you could add that saving towards these stunning embellishments!

Here are these embellishment earrings up close… too cute!

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Retiring Products 2018

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Monika. 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!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing our favourite retiring products and mine is definitely the Watercolour Wings stamp set and coordinating dies, Bold Butterfly framelits & Butterflies thinlits. 

Butterfly card using retiring Stampin Up Watercolour Wings, Butterflies Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Australia..JPG

I have also used 3 of my favourite retiring colours; Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and I will miss them, however there are some new stunning colours to replace them. Yay!

The 1/8″ metallic gold ribbon is also retiring, so make sure you get some of that added to your shopping cart. I have used it on the Rose Red card above in horizontal stripes. I also added Versamark ink to the centre of the butterfly as well as sponged it around the edges of the Rose Red card, added some Gold embossing powder and heat set it for added shine. I used my Fine Tip glue pen to add to the dots on the butterfly, gold embossing powder and heat set!

My next card uses the same products but I have teamed it up with the stunning Painted with Love DSP which will also retire on 31st May. It has this amazing gold through it. This card is a pop through card, where the butterfly slides through the slit when you open it!

I sure will miss these products but I am looking forward to sharing some new items soon.

Thanks for visiting today.

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!

Quick Birthday Cards using Stampin Up Picture Perfect Party DSP, Rose Wonder by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018 Occasions

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!

Quick Birthday Cards using Stampin Up Picture Perfect Party DSP, Rose Wonder by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018 Occasions.

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.

Quick Birthday Cards using Stampin Up Number of Years, Large Numbers, Picture Perfect Party DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018 Occasions

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!

Petal Passion Embellishment Earrings for a Silver Advancement

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a gift I made for one of my team members, Amie, who promoted to Silver last month! I am so proud of her and all of her achievements.

Petal Passion Embellishment earrings for Silver promotion Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Craft with Kate, Australia.

I made these Silver earrings using the Petal Passion Embellishments. Then I was thinking, how am I going to send them across to the other side of the country safely. So I made this gift holder using the Envelope punch board and put the earrings inside. When you open it up, the earrings slide up. The silver ribbon is retired, but it was perfect for my project.

Heart of Happiness

Dear Crafters,

It’s getting exciting now, as many Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are heading away this week for the OnStage events around the country. I am heading to Sydney on Friday afternoon for Saturday’s event at Luna Park. We will be honoured to have Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up! at our event, so we are very lucky to have her host our event.

I won’t be able to share any of the fun until Tuesday 10th April when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but this event is where we get to see lots of new product that will be in the upcoming Annual catalogue. It is such an exciting time of year!

Today I share some more hearts from the Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You Bundle in the Occasions catalogue. Even though Sale-a-bration is over for another year, the Occasions catalogue still runs through to the end of May!

I love how these stamp sets coordinate and can be used for so many different things, not just Valentines Day. Today’s card can be used for a Birthday or a thank you…. with the sentiment, Just for you, it can be anything you want it to be.

Heart Happiness & Sure Do Love You Bundle Stampin Up Occasions 2018 by Kate Morgan, Craft with Kate, Australia.

I love this colour combination of Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Whisper White together. By just adding some simple layers, you can create a wonderful effect. The tiny hearts are stamped to create a more interesting background.

and that Decorative Ribbon Border Punch adds extra interest.
