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!

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.

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.

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.

Happy 5 Year Stampiversary to me!

5th anniversary celebration.png

Dear Crafters,

Today is my 5 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! Wow, who would have thought that I would still be a demonstrator all this time?!! Certainly not me, but here I am, loving these amazing products as much as ever!

Why do I love being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!? Here are a few reasons why:

  • the high quality of the products
  • everything coordinates; cardstock, accessories, stamps and dies. No more taking my projects to the stores to find a ribbon that matches the colours in my project!
  • Being a demonstrator, I save a minimum of 20% on every order
  • Being able to purchase products before they are released to the general public
  • Attending live events and trying new products before everyone else
  • I can order from the comfort of my home and have it delivered to my door!
  • part of the largest team in Australia, Art with Heart, who are so supportive, helpful and encouraging
  • the amazing friends I have made and continue to meet within our team and at live events
  • building a beautiful team, called Craftalicious, who I  share amazing times with
  • and most of all, sharing my love of craft with others

Well, that’s enough about me and my amazing journey so far. I hope I can continue to share it with you, or better still, join my team and it may just be the start of a whole new life for you too!

I want to share a couple of the Easter Treat Boxes that I’ve made for the kids!

Today I share some 4″ x 4″ birthday cards with the yummy Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper. This paper stack is 6″ x 6″ and one side has photographic images, like these delicious looking donuts! These 4 cards that I have made today, use only one piece of the designer paper, so you can create heaps of cards using just a small amount of designer series paper.

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.

Heart Happiness meets Springtime Foils

Dear Crafters,

Today is all about hearts, with the Heart Happiness stamp set, the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and the Springtime Foils DSP!

I have used Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White as my colour combination.

Heart Happiness with Springtime Foils, Occasions 2018 Saleabration Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I coloured the Springtime Foils DSP with the Powder Pink ink pad, swiping it across the paper to add the colour quickly. I cut it down to the required size and placed it on the bottom section of the white card. I stamped the small hearts with Powder Pink ink to the top half. I added some ribbon and a double bow, before gluing it to the front of the card.

All the hearts were stamped and die cut and then added across the centre of the card with dimensionals.

I added some basic pearl jewels for some added bling!

The inside of the card was also decorated with another heart at the top and a slice of the coloured Springtime Foils DSP at the bottom.

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

Sweet scene on the Waterfront

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the Waterfront Stamp set in the Occasions catalogue 2018. I don’t actually have this set, but a few team members got together recently and we love to share stamps sets on the day, that we may not own ourselves. It’s a great way for team bonding and getting to try sets we may not appreciate until you have a go!

Waterfront Birthday card Occasions 2018 using Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

Naturally, I opened it up and wondered where to start, so I turned to the iPad and Pinterest and I was inspired by Sarah Fleming from the USA. Thank you Sarah!
