Tissue Box cover with Share What You Love SDSP

Dear Crafters,

Sniff sniff, I’m back to work today after 2 weeks of holidays at home, so lucky I have a beautiful tissue box to make things better!

Today I share a tissue box cover that I created using a 12″ x 12″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. You are probably going to ask me for the measurements, but to be honest, I just measured around a tissue box to get a rough guide; so approximately 3-7/8″, 8-1/8″ and then rotate 90º and score at 1-3/4″ from either end. The ends, once you cut the tabs to create the box, do not make it all the way down the box, so I just covered both ends with a larger piece of DSP and you wouldn’t even know!

Tissue Box Cover using Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

I wasn’t really happy with the top where the tissues come through the box, so I added some strips of scallop edging to the underside!

Tissue Box Cover using Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018

This fits really snug over the tissue box and it is open at the bottom for easy access.

WARNING: I found mine in the recycle bin last night, as hubby used the last tissue and threw it away, so ensure you tell ALL the family members that you have created a masterpiece and not to throw it in the bin… be warned!!! LOL

Tiffany style gift bag for a special birthday celebration!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a special gift for a special team member who is celebrating a milestone birthday. Stampin’ Up! have the best products, but to be honest, what I also love is the amazing friends we meet along the journey. I have to admit, I love my little team of ladies who also share my passion of Stampin’ Up! but we have this amazing friendship that will be ever lasting too!

I was inspired by Connie Stewart of Simply Simple Stamping who shared a video on how to make this gorgeous Tiffany & Co style gift bag, and I thought it was the perfect size for the gift I had purchased for this special milestone birthday.

I used Pool Party cardstock and the Gold Metallic edged ribbon. The sentiment from the Best Bunny stamp set, was stamped in Memento Black ink. Here is the gift I purchased… see, they fit inside the bag perfectly!

Colour Creations: Blueberry Bushel with Bike Ride

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring the new In Colour, Blueberry Bushel!!!

I am getting organised for the end of year when my eldest daughter graduates from her primary years of schooling and one of her closest friends is a boy who I’m sure she will miss next year as they head off to different High Schools. I’ve made this card for him!

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper, Best Route. It is the perfect choice to go with this Bike Ride stamp set. This young man loves his bike; I guess it gives them their independence at this age. The two of them often head out for a bike ride on the weekends, so I thought it was appropriate to use a bike for this card as they will head off in different directions next year.

The bike is stamped and die cut and the wheels are attached with small split pins so they actually spin! The bike frame is mounted to the card with dimensionals to allow the wheels to move.

The inside of the card I stamped this cute little dog, as the recipient has recently acquired a new puppy and I think he will love this touch!

Pretty Petal Promenade with an Interlocking Gatefold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP. Have you seen these papers? They are actually just like a photo, which is how Stampin’ Up! created them!

I love the softness of the petals and the colouring of these roses, but I also think it may be overpowering as a full layer on a card. So I have cut it into 2 panels to adhere to the front of the card in this fancy fold style.

Petal Promenade DSP with Share What You Love by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.

It is a gatefold card, but when you open it, the oval layers interlock!

I saw Dawn Griffiths make one of these, but of course I needed to alter the paper sizes for A4, rather than US sizing, so went back to my trusty file to find a gatefold card that I had made many years ago and adapted it.

Here it is open. I have stamped the image again and coloured the petals with the Wink of Stella, the same as the front!

Springtime with Garden Impressions designer paper

Hello Crafters,

Have you seen the DSP sale, buy 3 get 1 free? This month I will focus on projects using some of these stunning papers!

DSP Buy 1 Get 1 Free

I love navy and yellow together and so when I grabbed this piece of designer paper, I knew straight away I would use these two colours together. When there are flowers, there are always butterflies, so I used the Springtime Impressions thinlits die to add this stunning So Saffron butterfly. The sentiment is from the Cake Soiree stamp set stamped in Night of Navy ink and punched out with a 1″ circle punch. I wrapped some Linen thread around 3 ties added the sentiment and tied in a bow! The candy dots in the butterfly are retired but they were the perfect accent to finish this card.

Under the Sea Textures

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card with more of a masculine theme. As you know, I struggle with these types of cards, but this Sea of Textures bundle had me excited when I first saw it. In conjunction with the new Embossing Mats, it gives so many more options to add texture with the cutting dies!!!

Sea of Textures Under the Sea card Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

See that white coral die cut piece in the bottom corner? Well, I used that same die with the new embossing mats to create the embossed section on the Soft Sea Foam card.

The octopus was inked with Grapefruit Grove and then I used Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Markers using the thumping technique to add that extra bit of colour to the tentacles.

I love how the wood textures Designer Series Paper adds the perfect texture for the port hole!

Colour Creations: Around the Corner with Blackberry Bliss

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. This week we are featuring a returning colour, Blackberry Bliss!!!

How pretty are these Delicate Lace Edgelits dies?!!! I have die cut them in Blackberry Bliss card stock and glued them to the front of the Balmy Blue card. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner, Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

The Animal Outings bundle is so Australian with its choice of animals, but today I’m using the cute little rhino. Those lace edgelits remind me of the skin of the rhino so I felt it appropriate to stamp it and cut it with the coordinating Animal Friends thinlits. Loving that there are coordinating thinlits for this stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner & Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.

I coloured the rhino and the little bird with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then added it with an action/wobble accessory… it’s like a spring and it makes him move. These are very easy to make by punching 2 small circles of card stock and wrapping some thin craft wire around a pen/marker 3 or 4 times. Remove the wire from the pen, cut the wire from the roll and using some tape, add each end of your coil to a circle. Place the action wobble behind your rhino with some glue and add it to your card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too. Here is have used the sentiments from Around the Corner, perfect detail for a birthday card.

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. 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!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018..JPG

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

Animal Outings Rhino die_2018.jpg

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

Annual Catalogue Stampin Up 2018 Pg48.JPG

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.
