Triple Time Technique with Petal Palette

Dear Crafters,

Today I share these wonderful cards that the ladies made at my first class for 2018 last Saturday, using the Petal Palette stamp set in the Occasions catalogue. They were amazed at this technique and were happy to be able to take home a written tutorial to be able to recreate them in their own time (one of the perks of attending my classes).

We made two cards, one was the centred layers and the other was a side step layer. We started with the side step layer card to show them the basics of how it works, then the next card I allowed them to choose which stamps they would like to use from the set. You can see that they chose different combinations, which was fantastic to see what they came up with. I also had one of the Saleabration stamp sets, Heartfelt Blooms, which they could use the sentiment, Thinking of You in that pretty font.

We stamped the images on Whisper White card with Archival Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Write markers.

Bubble Over Bookmark

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a cute little project I came up with when a customer placed a fairly large order and I wanted to make something to thank her. It got me thinking, and knowing that she is an avid reader and as part of her Sale-a-bration freebies with her order, she chose the Bubbles & Fizz DSP. So I came up with this cute bookmark idea!

Bubble Over & Bubbles & Fizz DSP Bookmark by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia

I cut 2 bottles from Thick Whisper White card.  I also die cut one of the bottles from the Bottles and Fizz DSP using the same die and glued it to one of the bottles.

How did I put it together? well … the bottle behind has been scored at the top and folded over and the bottle on the front has been glue to it to create the A frame.

The bottle top is die cut from the copper foil and glued to the top. Check out those drips down the front of the bottle… they are the cute Glitter Epoxy Shapes embellishments!

I also stamped the Thank you over the top in Bermuda Bay ink!

Masculine Card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle with Sheet Music

Dear Crafters,

Here is another Masculine card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle, Sheet Music and Rose Wonder stamp sets, Wood Textures DSP and the Copper Metallic Foil!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Seasonal Layers thinlits & Wood Textures DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DIY

I love the simplicity of this card, although it uses many different products. The Copper gives it a gorgeous shine and I love how the Sheet Music stamp is directly stamped onto the Wood Textures DSP! Can you see that under those leaves? I actually stamped it off once before stamping onto the paper so it was a little more subtle.

I copper embossed the Early Espresso card with the large maple leaf and heat set it before die cutting the shape. The sentiment is actually from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

I also stamped the large maple leaf on the inside of the card and on the envelope to tie it all together.

Masculine Thank You Card

Dear Crafters,

Are you like me and struggle with Masculine cards? Well, I have been on a bit of a roll lately with lots of requests for Masculine cards, and this Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is perfect to use!!!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP, Painted Harvest & Seasonal Layers thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DI

I have obviously gone for the earthy tones and the Seasonal Layers thinlits are the perfect match, along with some of the burlap ribbon. The sentiment is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set as I wanted a fairly large image to stamp onto the Oval Stitched Shapes framelits die cut.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event here in Melbourne!

Hello Friends,

On Saturday, I attended the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event here in Melbourne at the Melbourne Park Function Centre. We were lucky it was here in our home town and I was even more excited that four members of my team were able to join me!!! (Unfortunately, Amie wasn’t able to attend and we sure did miss her, and hopefully she may be able to make it to the next one).

Here are the name tags that I made for each of us to wear on our lanyards. I made them using Photoshop Elements on the computer and printed them using our team floral logo. Then I die cut them using the Stitched Shapes framelits, mounted them onto a Melon Mambo circle (Layering Circle framelits) and then laminated them. Then I die cut them again (Layering Circle framelits). I added a small hole punch in the top and added the cords (purchased on ebay).

I also made these cute little boxes using some current and retired Stampin Up colours and DSPs. I actually asked on our team forum what their favourite colour is and went from there (aren’t I sneaky?!!!). The gift tags were made using the coordinating cardstock and the butterfly is from the Move Me thinlits.

and I bet you are wondering what was inside the box?!!! No, not chocolates… I would have eaten them all!!! lol

I actually purchased some bone folders and had them engraved with each of their names on it along with our team name, Team Craftalicious!

Aren’t they adorable???

For demonstrators who attend this event, it coincides with the release of the Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure! So yes, I have a copy in my hot little hands but unfortunately I cannot share it with you just yet, but it won’t be long and you will see lots of new yummy products!

Painted Harvest is spectacular!

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Painted Harvest & Beautiful Bouquet stamp sets and coordinating Leaf punch. Purchase the Painted Harvest stamp set and the punch together as a bundle, and you save 10%.

I had a crafting day at a friends house with 4 of us making all different types of cards. Some were concentrating on Christmas, while I needed some Thank you cards and wasn’t sure what to take, so decided on the Painted Harvest bundle!

I have used: Berry Burst, Sweet Sugarplum, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Here is another one in blues – I just love the country feel that the gingham ribbon gives to this card, but then again, I do love blue, so maybe I am bias!

I have used: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Faux Wood Grain with Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a new technique that I haven’t tried before and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

I am using the Daisy Delight Bundle and the Faux Wood Grain Technique.

Can you tell I am just loving this bundle?!!! It is unbelievable value at under $55 for the stamp set and coordinating punch!

Anyway, here is my card. I love the look and simplicity of this. I haven’t added a sentiment, because truthfully, I don’t think it needs one and I can just write inside the card.

I love how the vellum adds a touch of softness, rather than a solid colour and that ribbon, wow, it is gorgeous to work with!

To see how to create the faux wood grain technique, head over to YouTube to see Carolyn Bennie demonstrate this amazing technique. I just love how every time you try it, it looks so different.
