Memory Keeping Layout with Tea Room Specialty DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a double spread layout of some 12″ x 12″ scrapbook pages using the pretty Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This first page fits one photo, 6″ x 4″ on the green mat. I love all the die cut embellishments around the page. The butterfly, flowers and the pretty delicate lace edging above and below where the photo will sit. It all coordinates so well.

Here’s the second page of the double layout with some more pretty embellishments and this one has 3 spaces for 3″ x 3″ photos. I love the celebrate thinlit and the stitched Labels framelit for added embellishments.

Celebrate with Cake Soiree

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the 3rd card we made at my class last Saturday using the Cake Soiree Bundle & Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Because we had some late cancellations, we ended up with a smaller class, so for this final card, I allowed the ladies to choose their own Designer Paper pattern and colours. I made this first card and then let them get their creativity on!!!!

this first one was made with an engagement in mind (the DSP is the retired, Bundle of Love Specialty DSP)

The ladies were enjoying colouring using the Blender Pens and ink pads, where I showed them how you can get some great shading and depth with the variation of colour, by adding more when needed.

Lots of Lavender during Saleabration

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the pretty, Lots of Lavender stamp set which can be earned free with any $90+ order.

My card base is Sweet Sugarplum, embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Each of the leaves has then been highlighted with the Wink of Stella.

Lots of Lavender by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia #Saleabration2018

The lavender image is stamped with Black Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blenders markers. I must say, I’m not overly happy with my fussy cutting and nearly pulled it all apart to start again 😦

I love Celebrate You thinlits dies too, especially cut in the silver foil. These dies are also a Sale-a-bration free product with a $180 order. If you place a $270 order, you can get both the thinlits dies and the Lots of Lavender stamp set for FREE.

Celebrate the New Year with colour!

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2018 brings you much joy, love, health and happiness.

Today’s card is a fun card to celebrate the New Year, with some Birthday Ribbon bows, using the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 2 days time!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I have used some pretty bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This is a photopolymer stamp set, so it is quite easy to line up the two-step stamping for the bows. Check out those gorgeous Tutti-fruitti Adhesive-backed Sequins too, they will also be available and I’m sure they will be a huge hit when the catalogue goes live. These were one of the first embellishments I added to my order.

The fringing on the edges of the panel where the sentiment is, was created by many little paper snips along the edges of the Flirty Flamingo paper. Doesn’t it look cool?!!!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

Don’t look too closely at the Old Olive stamping… I recently reinked my stamp pad and it was a little too juicy!!!

The “celebrate” sentiment was only part of a stamp in the set, so I actually used a Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just that one word before stamping!

Bokeh Balloons

Dear Crafters,

Tomorrow is the last day to get your Sale-a-bration orders in and take advantage of earning free product with every $90s.

So I share today another of my favourite bundles in the Occasions Catalogue, Celebrate Today!

The bundle is Celebrate Today stamp set and the coordinating Balloon Framelits Dies.

Celebrate Today

The base card is Tempting Turquoise card with a layer of Basic Black card.

The background has been created using the Bokeh Technique (pronounced like “bouquet” of flowers). I started with a piece of Whisper White card and sponged on some inks; Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist & Wisteria Wonder. Then using a template I created (circle punch holes in a piece of Window Sheet), I used the Craft White Inkpad to add the different size circles randomly.

The balloon is die cut from black card and the banner from Tempting Turquoise card.

Be sure to stamp the inside panel of your card with another banner and even the top of the envelope!

Celebrate Today

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.

Celebrate Today at JAI

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an inspiration challenge JAI#250.

My immediate reaction to this image was Valentine’s Day, but that was celebrated yesterday, so I changed to a birthday theme. There are so many birthday celebrations, so I know this card won’t last too long in my stash!

I have also had this idea of making an interactive moving card for so long now, that today was the day to give it a go. I didn’t know the mechanics of it, but gave it a shot of trial and error. Simply pull the flag tab and the balloons move across the card from left to right. Push it back in and the balloons drift back! I have no idea what the name of this technique is, but it was fun to make.

Celebrate Today

I have this Celebrate Today stamp set in photopolymer and it is the ideal type for 2-step stamping, as the stamp is completely clear and you can see exactly where to stamp the second image! Awesome!

The base card is Black with a layer of balloons stamped in Strawberry Slush ink and then stamped again with Blackberry Bliss ink. The hearts on the left balloon were sponged with a dauber using the Heart Mask. The banner is die cut from Glimmer paper as are the tassels.

The sentiment is inked with Versamark and silver embossing powder applied and heat set.

Celebrate Today

Be sure tho decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together!

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

Hot Air Balloon

Dear Crafters,

My last post was all about travel and today is no exception!

I have never been in a hot air balloon, but I can only imagine how it must be to fly up in the sky above everything and be so free. Who knows, one day I may get that chance!

Celebrate Today is such a versatile set and can be purchased as a Bundle (stamps & coordinating dies) saving you 15% off.

Celebrate Today

The background is embossed using the Decorative Dots TIEF. I used the Celebrate Today stamps for the sentiment.

The balloons are die cut using the Big Shot and I made 5 images all exactly the same. Fold each balloon in half and then glue to each other. Very simple but so effective!

Stamp the bottom part of the balloon using Stampin’ Write Markers.

I tied a piece of twine at the bottom of the balloon before using Tombo Glue to adhere to the card.

Celebrate Today

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too!

Celebrate Today ~ Travel

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!!!!

Seeing as it is holiday time here in Australia, although we are not going anywhere, I wanted to make some cards for those who may be heading off for their annual break.

I have a new product from the Occasions catalogue (on sale from 6th January) called Celebrate Today, and I wanted to incorporate the balloons into this card. Not only can these balloons be used for birthday celebrations, but I also imagined them as hot air balloons!

Celebrate Today

I used the World Map stamp as the background and sponged it with Soft sky ink.

The balloons are inked with soft sky, but before stamping, I kissed it against the World Map stamp, then onto the paper! What a great effect!!!! Next use the Big Shot to die cut the images.

Celebrate Today

I tied a piece of twine at the bottom of each balloon and stamped the sentiment from our Project Life range, Remember This stamp set. I added these with dimensionals.

Celebrate Today

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too!

Birthday, feminine

Celebrate Today

Dear Crafters,

I cannot believe this is the last day of 2014 and tomorrow is a New Year!!!!

I wish everyone a safe and happy time tonight as we enter into 2015 and see you on the other side.

It was a very close friends birthday last Sunday and I wanted to share the card I made for her. She loves purple, but I really wanted to try something different.

Celebrate Today

I have used Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Whisper White with the coordinating card stock.

I stamped the balloons, banner and tassels onto Whisper White card and used the coordinating dies (you can purchase the Celebrate Today stamp set and dies together to save and extra 15% off).

Celebrate Today

The designer paper is some of the Moonlight DSP. The Celebrate Today bundle will be available from 6th January.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card ~ it really does finish the project off nicely.

Tuesday’s Tip

Dear Crafters,

Do you find that you are forever searching for the coordinating products when making your projects?

Well, I have an easy way to store your coordinating framelits. Just get some magnetic sheet and adhere it inside the cover of your stamp set. You will always have your dies and stamps together!!!!
