A shaker card for Mum!

Dear Crafters,

Today, I have the Mother’s Day card that I made for my mum, featuring the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper from the soon to be released Annual catalogue. My new motto is going to be #cutitnothoardit

I have also used the Large Letter framelits that you can get in a bundle saving you 10% but this is only until 31st May. They will be in the new Annual catalogue, but you cannot get it as a bundle, so get yours today by clicking here, you won’t be disappointed!

Anyway, are you ready to see my shaker card?!!!

I am absolutely in love with the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper which will be available to order on 1 June 2017.

The sequins on the inside are the old 2013-2015 In Colour sequin pack, but they actually coordinate quite well with the colours in this DSP!

The large letter framelits were used to create the negative image for the front of the card, creating the shaker section…. but I also used the positive images for the inside of the card! No waste in this house!!!! lol

The sentiment, Happy Mother’s Day is from the Crazy About You stamp set and the flowers stamped on the MUM dies cuts is from brand new Colourful Seasons stamp set.

AWHT Blog Hop: Designer Series Paper

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

You have come to my blog from the lovely, Monika O’Neill.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

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.

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.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries, Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

Happy Birthday Ang!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project with you that I made for a friends birthday yesterday, that uses some retired DSP along with Daffodil Delight card stock. My friends favourite colour is Blue, so I had to make it with these colours for her birthday.

#stampinup Gift Bag     #stampinup crazy About You Birthday

This cute bag uses only 1 sheet of DSP and A4 card stock.  How cute is it? It is so sturdy and quite large, so it will easily hold a gift.

Here is the coordinating card that I made to go with it.

Totally Crazy About You

Dear Crafters,

Here are some cards I made which are very simple and very quick to make.

I have used the Crazy About You stamp set with the coordinating 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch.

Crazy About You

The base card is Strawberry Slush with a layer of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper down the centre.

The flowers are stamped in Strawberry Slush ink on Whisper White card stock and a vellum scallop circle is cut using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I used a brad to join the flowers together, then glued them to the card.

Crazy About You

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Crazy About You

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

Challenges, feminine, JAI, Techniques & Tutorials

Crazy Ovals

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is Just Add Eggs or OvalsJAI#255.

My immediate reaction to this would be Easter Eggs with only 2 weeks until the Easter Bunny arrives, but I was sure many others will head in this direction, so I have done something completely different!

I have never made a Spinning Card, so this was the perfect chance to try it.

Crazy About You

I love this Crazy About You bundle with the coordinating framelits. I wanted something fun so I chose a base card of Coastal Cabana with some Melon Mambo and Whisper White.

First, I cut the 2 ovals together before stamping the flower in coordinating ink. I also did it again on some scrap card and I used the 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch to cut it out. 

I punched two circles of cardstock with the 1/2″ circle punch and joined them together with 2 dimensionals, one on top of the other. Glue this to the centre back of the flower. Slide it into the gap between the ovals of the card so it will slide around the oval.

This is the spinning part. Move the large flower around the oval!

Crazy About You

I added the sentiment Bravo and some coordinating candy dots and a rhinestone to the centre of the flower. I used double dimensionals (one on top of the other) to sit the layers up so that the flower will spin easily around the oval.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope. I never send a “nude” envelope!

Crazy About You

This was such a fun card to make and not as difficult as I thought it was going to be!

Please leave a comment below, if you think my card met this challenge.

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.

Crazy About You

Dear Crafters,

I am going to share a card with you today of a colour combination that I don’t usually put together, but in fact, I have fallen in love with!

I have used two Bundles from the Occasions Catalogue and with each bundle you can save 15%.

The 1st bundle is Crazy About You stamp set and the Hello You Thinlits, and the 2nd bundle is Petal Potpourri stamp set and the coordinating Flower Medallion punch.

Flowers make me happy and this card certainly is a bright and happy card.

Petal Potpourri Crazy About You Stampin' Up!

The base card is Hello Honey with a layer of Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper.

The flowers are stamped in Hello Honey ink on the coordinating card stock and punched out using the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch. I used dimensionals to add the flowers to the card, slightly overlapping them, after adding some Hello Honey ribbon and bow.

Petal Potpourri Crazy About You Stampin' Up!

I added the “happy” die cut from the Hello You Thinlits and added it with Tombo Glue. The “birthday” sentiment is stamped and punched with the Word Window punch.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Crazy About You

Dear Crafters,

Crazy About You & Hello You Thinlits Bundle  

I received this bundle with my order on Tuesday and couldn’t wait to have a play.  I love that this stamp set is available in wood, clear and photopolymer and has wonderful sentiments for all occasions.  I got this in photopolymer for only $72.95 for all of these items below:

 

Anyway, this is what I created with the stamp set, using the leaves and one of the  flowers. I also used a stamped flower from the Flower Shop stamp set and Petite Petals stamp set with the coordinating punches to add some dimension to my card.

Crazy About You

The first layer of card stock is Rose Red and I embossed it with the Spring Flowers TIEF.

I also added some Pear Pizzazz ribbon and a pearl and sponged the edges of the layers of card stock to give a softer feel.

Crazy About You

Make sure you finish by stamping one of the flowers on the inside to the tie the card together!
