Thanks Coach for a wonderful netball season!

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a Double Z Fold Card made for my kids’ netball coaches… yep, there are 2 coaches so I had to make 2 of them!!!

I must admit, it did take quite a while to come up with creating the whole team on the one card, but I think this works quite well. The goals at either end and then all the players on the court, even with the centre circle! The team colours are a Gold and Burgundy, so the closest colours were Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry. I used Balmy Blue for the background, even thought most of the season I could have used Basic Gray or Smoky Slate (being the winter competition)!!!!

Thanks Netball Coach card using Stampin Up Punch Art by Kate Morgan Australia.

The net is made by stamping the image from the Sea of Textures stamp set and then die cut with the Pretty Pines, small pine cone thinit and trimmed. The players are all punch art using the Cookie Cutter punch, Fox Builder punch and the retired Owl builder punch. The centre circle was 2 circle punches; cut the smaller one, then line up the bigger one over where the smaller one was punched!

The bibs with the positions are stamped using the new Make a Difference stamp set!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project created as an Easel style card, but using the mini calendar tabs and post it notes and yes, it folds reasonably flat!

This makes such a perfect gift for your loved ones or work colleagues this Christmas, adding a festive twist. We will be making one of these at my next Christmas Card Class on 21 November at 10.30am.

Flower Patch with a twist!

Hello Crafters,

First of all today, I want to wish my gorgeous girl, Annika a very happy 8th birthday. I can’t believe we are so blessed to have had you for 2920 days in our lives already!

To commemorate this special day, I wanted to share with you some of her favourite colours and they can be found on one very beautiful bird that I grew up with in our neighbourhood living so close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

No, I don’t live in Tassie anymore, but I still have the most vivid memories as a child growing up in such a gorgeous environment and these stunning birds wandering around.

Yes, it is the peacock!

Flower Patch Peacock

I have created this using the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the Flower Fair framelits dies which can be purchased as bundle saving you a huge 15%.

I also used the Owl punch.

I should have photographed him before I put it into the frame to stop the glare off the glass, but I think you can see him clearly enough.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used Pool Party as the base of the feathers, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point cardstock and I sponged the edges with the same colour ink and a sponge dauber. The circles are punched from Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and a Pacific Point heart with a tiny Bermuda Bay dot.

c

Rhinestones were added to the feathers for a bit of bling as these birds are such a showy animal!

Please leave a message to let me know what you think of my design.

Owl Punch Art

Hello Crafters,

Morning everyone and what a wonderful time of year it is, with the cooler mornings and lovely days. I am thankful for the cooler change!

I know I am not the only one who loves owls at the moment, so I wanted to share with you today a gorgeous card I made which was case’d from Deb Raymer of Debzhouse Stamping.

So here it is!

Owl Punch Art

I used the Venetian Romance DSP with the coordinating card stock of Soft Suede, Pistachio Pudding, Tangerine Tango & Crisp Canteloupe.

The background is embossed with the Woodgrain TIEF. The white markings on the beak and eyes was using a White Uniball Signo Gel Pen.

Owl Punch Art

The punches used to make this cute baby owl are:

I added some green feather that I found lying around in my kids craft area and it matched perfectly for my owl!

Card in a Box Style, feminine, Owl Punch

Explosion Box Card

Morning Stampers,

I want to share with you today, a card that a fellow demonstrator showed us last weekend ~ an explosion box card!

How cool are these?

I am loving this new card style and can see myself creating lots of them over the coming months.

This first one we made for my hubby’s birthday last Wednesday and he was super impressed when he pulled it out of the envelope…. yes you heard right, it folds flat and fits in an envelope!!!!

And you see those little monsters popping up out of the box, they are made with the owl punch!

Explosion Box Card

This next card I made for a dear friend of mine who lives in Tasmania and is a very talented lady, especially with her photography. I couldn’t send her any old card, so I thought she would appreciate something a little more special. I have used the Flower Shop Stamp Set and coordinating Pansy punch and the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and coordinating punches (Bitty & Elegant Butterfly) to create this one.

Explosion Box Card

I have had some interest in how these are made and so I am willing to do a class to show you just how quick and easy these are to make. If you would like to come along to a class, please comment below what day and times best suit.

Yesterday’s Craft Class

Hello Stampers,

We had an epic Craft Class yesterday with 4 ladies thoroughly enjoying themselves and we had many many laughs along the way!

Here was the first card that we made ~ a Twisted Easel Tea Light Candle Card.

Tea Light Candle Card

and don’t fret, the tea light candle is battery operated, so no homes will burn down!!!

The next card we made included a mini calendar and post it note

Mini Calendar & Post it note Card

Then we some spare time at the end and the ladies were having so much fun, they wanted to make another mini calendar card but this time, a smaller one that I created myself. It also folds flat to be able to be mailed!

One of the ladies who attended said “I don’t have a crafty bone in my body” but she was so proud of her achievements and so were the rest of us. So next time I hold a craft class, be sure to come along!

Happy Stamping,

Kate

 

 

Calendar Card, Owl Punch

Easel Calendar & Post-it Card

Hello Stampers,

This is a project I have made for some upcoming craft markets and Christmas gifts. It is easy but also very useful! It is perfect as a gift for someone’s office or desktop. It has a pad of post-it notes on the bottom and the top part of the card sits behind the post-it notes and has a calendar which can be displayed all year round.

Mini Calendar Card

To create this you start with one piece of card stock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″; score it at 5½” and 2¾”.

Mini Calendar Card

Fold as shown above and add adhesive to the easel section.  Cut one more layer at 4¼” x 5½”.  Adhere the bottom of this piece to the area with glue on it so that it folds flat. This will make them easier to put in the post!

Mini Calendar Card

I hope you like this cute but simple project.

Masculine, Owl Punch

Owl Builder Punch

Morning Crafters,

Today I want to share the Owl Builder Punch.

Punches are so easy to use, cheap to purchase and can be used all the time with different cardstock and papers to create a totally different look!

I embossed the crumb cake cardstock and adhered it to the whisper white card, then punched the circle out of the front of the card. The owl is glued to the inside of the card, centred behind the circle. Doesn’t he look cute, as though he is peeking out of a tree trunk!
