Today I can also finally share some of the excitement from the Sydney OnStage event held at Luna Park last Saturday. Here is a photo of Catherine and I at the entrance to Lunda Park and the stunning Ferris Wheel with the Harbour Bridge behind! We had perfect sunny weather for the 2 days we were in Sydney.

We were lucky enough to get a table right up the front and here are a few of us from our Art With Heart Team. We had a fantastic time and loved receiving new product and of course, the brand new annual catalogue!!!!

I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a display stamper and here are my projects!

#onstage2017 display stamper samples by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator Australia

A few weeks ago, I received a big brown box with 3 of the new In Colour Ink Pads, 2 stamp sets (Beautiful Bouquet & Paint Play), Lovely Laurel thinlits, ribbons, embellishments, In Colour card stock, Pretty Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack to name a few, to create these projects!

Over the next few months I’ll be able to show you more about my projects and better close up pictures, but what do you think of my display? Did you attended the event in Sydney, and did you see my display?

And here is the view from our hotel room which was absolutely stunning and I just had to share it with you!

Dragonfly Dreams

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sneak peek of some new products arriving in January 2017 from the Occasions catalogue, the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-ups-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

I love the blues and purples in this card. I’ve used Marina Mist with Elegant Eggplant!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-ups-sragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

Below the purple die cut, I also die cut some vellum and glued it down with Tombo glue. Are you wondering why you can’t see the glue? Well, if you gently sponge it to the back of the vellum evenly, you won’t have any visibility of how you have adhered it! Same with the sentiment!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-up-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

The top layer of the dragonfly was run through the Big Shot with a tan embossing mat so it didn’t cut through completely, but left the embossed look.

I also added some Wink of Stella to the body of the dragonfly some some added sparkle.

What do you think of this card?

Ice-cream with a cherry on top!

Dear Crafters,

Oh, what a messy technique, but the outcome has such a variation and you can get so many designs from one go!

The Shaving Cream technique is one that I do not use regularly but it was part of a challenge for some swaps in our team and I didn’t want to waste the extra pieces that I printed, so I came up with another card to share with you, using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder Punch.

shaving-cream-technique-sprinkles-of-life-ice-creams-petal-burst-tief-tree-builder-handmade-card-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I used Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum reinkers into the shaving cream and swirled them around. I used shimmery white card to place into the shaving cream, lift it up and scrape the excess cream off with my pastry scraper (yes, it works great for this technique). Then I used some paper towel to buff it up and see the shimmer of the card.

shaving-cream-technique-sprinkles-of-life-ice-creams-petal-burst-tief-tree-builder-handmade-card-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

Don’t these ice-creams look so yummy?!!! They remind me of the Sara Lee Blueberry Cheesecake ice-cream that is a favourite in our house. You really must try it, it is awesome!

shaving-cream-technique-sprinkles-of-life-ice-cream-petal-burst-tief-tree-builder-handmade-card-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

And are you wondering how I did the cone?

Well, when we receive our Stampin’ Up! orders in a Big Brown Box, there is all that brown paper protecting our products…. it comes in handy, let me tell you!

You can scrunch it up and then glue it (or use JAC paper) to a piece of card and squash it flat. Stamp the image on it and then cut out the cone with paper snips.  Such a great way to add extra dimension to the cone!

What do you think of today’s projects?

Why don’t you give the baby wipe technique a go!

Now let’s get started!

I have a double spread scrapbook layout using the Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Bundle & Star of Light stamp set.

candy-cane-lane-dsp-cookie-cutter-bundle-gingerbread-man-diy-double-layout-scrapbooking-memory-keeping-holiday-catalogue-2016-cards-by-kate-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I haven’t done any journalling, as I have created this ready for Christmas this year, and it really isn’t that far away!

Every December, my girls and I make gingerbread men and tiny gingerbread houses and we decorate them. It takes us the whole weekend but we have made it our annual tradition.

My next project features the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I adore the colours in this paper pack; Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum & Whisper White.

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set. The flower is from the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating punch, Flower Medallion.

This card uses the same Blooms & Bliss DSP, but in the blue tones!

 

The next DSP to feature is from the Holiday catalogue, Presents & Pinecones. This has been my favourite paper pack this season! This is a shaker card using the Delicate Ornament thinlits.

My final project for today features the Floral Bouquet DSP with the Crazy About You stamp set and coordinating Medallion punch.

I love the classic blue and white of these papers.

I love how glamorous the Gold embossing looks and the gold glimmer bow adds that extra touch of class!

Attaching it with dimensionals gives it the added height and those red berries bring the wreath to life!

Baby Wipe Technique

Dear Crafters,

I had a card making class on 8th October where we I taught the baby wipe technique!

If you need to make a few cards at a time, this technique is a great way to start. I have used the same technique, but multiple stamp sets for a different look!

baby-wipe-technique-bloomin-love-happy-heart-tief-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

The ink colours I have used are: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Dapper Denim & Island Indigo!

There are loads of tutorials on YouTube if you have never tried this technique before.

baby-wipe-technique-bloomin-love-happy-heart-tief-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

This cards uses the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the Happy Heart Textured Impression Embossing Folder.

baby-wipe-technique-bloomin-love-happy-heart-tief-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

This next card uses the Floral Phrases stamp set.

baby-wipe-technique-floral-phrases-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

Don’t you just love that colour variation as the inks blend together on the baby wipe?!!

And my 3rd and final card for this post, is a sweet cupcake card!

baby-wipe-technique-sweet-cupcake-confetti-tief-cards-by-kate-masculine-birthday-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

Just check out that frosting and the ribbon I’ve tied in a knot rather than a bow if I was making a feminine card!
