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

Thanks a bunch card using Stampin Up Painted Harvest, by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. #makeacardsendacard pinks

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

Thanks a bunch card using Stampin Up Painted Harvest, by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. #makeacardsendacard Blues

and if you are more of a traditionalist and like to see these sunflower images in yellows and oranges, I have this one so you are not disappointed!!!

I have used: Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, 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.

Daisy Delight with Faux Woodgrain Technique by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Rowville. 3D Handmade card.JPG

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.

We made these in my class yesterday and the ladies loved the colour combination!

I saw a similar card and for the life of me, I cannot find the original creator anywhere. I will keep looking and be sure to update this post when I find it. UPDATE: I found her, Lavinia Gruizinga from the UK, but it was on a private FB Group so I cannot link to her card!

Team Tulips

Dear Crafters,

On Saturday morning it was my eldest daughters last game of netball for the season.  Yes, no more early mornings out in the cold for at least a month until next season starts!

Their coach Sharon, was fantastic with each and every one of them, mentoring them to new heights. So as a thank you, I made this card on behalf of the team to give to her along with a beautiful bunch of flowers.

Pop of Pink, Love is Kindness, Tulips Handmade card #stampinup @cardsbykate

I chose this retired stamp because the team were called the “Tulips” and I felt it as appropriate for the occasion.

I love this Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series paper. I added some Wink of Stella onto the tulips. Not sure if you can see it in the photo?
