Tickled Pink Flamingo

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another sneak peek of this cute stamp set, Fabulous Flamingo, which we created at my craft class on Saturday and the ladies loved it!

The flamingo is stamped with Memento Black, Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink inks.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out using the new Pretty Label punch. Then we cut 2 more of the punch pieces in Flirty Flamingo card and off set them behind the white one to create the layered effect.

Fabulous Flamingo

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another sneak peek of this cute stamp set, Fabulous Flamingo, which was an all attendee giveaway at OnStage in Sydney last month!

I stamped the flamingo in Flirty Flamingo and Berry Blast ink, however I think I need to go a bit lighter in my colours next time. But hey, it still gives some great effect of maybe a flamingo in the evening! lol

Pretty Kitty

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more of the cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are all of the images I coloured!

final (Edited).jpg

I stamped the images with Stazon Black ink onto Watercolour paper and used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Again, I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

This next one I added small strips of gold glimmer paper to the top and bottom edge of the red polka dot paper!

I adore these paper doilies and this one below, I covered up the centre of it, so before I glued it down, I cut out the centre of the doilie and that is what is forms the shape of the one to the right. No point covering the whole thing up, may as well use what I can!!!

Not one of these cards has a sentiment, did you notice that?!!! You don’t always need to add a sentiment to a card, sometimes you just want the images to be the focus.

I was very pleased with my watercolouring efforts, especially while sitting in a chair colouring on my lap!

Bella & Friends

Dear Crafters,

Well I can tell you that I placed my pre-order for brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue product yesterday!!! You can do this too, but only if you are a demonstrator or join today so you can get product earlier. Ask me how!

So here are the new 2017-2019 In Colours. Which one is your favourite?

2017-2019 In Colours by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I have some cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are the first two I started with from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, which I will show you shortly.

Watercolouring images of Pretty Kitty

I used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Isn’t this image just the cutest? I love the sentiment ‘You’ve got a friend in me’.

I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

This next one is using Marina Mist and the clouds and sentiments are from the Life Me Up stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It coordinates so well with this puppy floating away tied to a balloon!

and the last one for today is using some of the new copper trim that is a new product available from 1st June. It can be used like ribbon or it can be opened up to look a bit like a mesh bag or netting. I thought it looked a bit like the puppy had chewed it!!! lol

Bella & Friends by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

These cards could be used for any occasion, so I tend to leave off sentiments and add them later if I want them for a specific event.

What do you think about these cute cards?
