Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Nailed It with Urban Underground

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing the last of the four cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the Nailed It stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nailed It Urban Underground Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kelly Kent created that I saw on Pinterest.  I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging, so I often find myself scouring Pinterest for ideas.

This card really messes with my OCD too, stamping in such a random pattern, is something that I truly struggle with. We started with a square, stamped the images, then cut into 3 equal strips.

The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

And I always stamp the inside too!!!

Celebrate, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Let’s Celebrate Copper!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the Window Box Thinlits dies to create a card!

 

stampin-up-window-box-thinlit-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017

I love copper metallic thread wound around the card. I tied another small piece through the centre in a knot to tie them together.

stampin-up-window-box-thinlit-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017-flat

The sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

I just love the shine of the copper through the black!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have joined the very 1st Colour INKspiration Challenge!

15873544_10207165624893894_525200285262560348_n

These colours are so delicious I used every single one of them in my interactive card today!

I’ve used the cute Tasty Trucks stamp set (Sale-a-bration freebie) along with the Balloon Adventures and Day at the Beach stamp sets.

shaker-and-slider-card-using-stampin-up-tasty-trucks-day-at-the-beach-balloon-adventures-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions-2017

Yes there is a lot going on in this card!!!!

I have used the image from the colour challenge and created some cute little shrinky dink icypoles and put them up in the sun to create the shaker card. And who can go past some Wink of Stella to make the sun sparkle!!!!

Oh, and check out the slider part. Pull the orange tab and the truck moves along!

I used my blender pen with inks to colour the truck on Watercolour paper.
