Quick & Simple Square card using Tea Room Specialty DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick and easy square card using the pretty Tea Room Specialty DSP. This designer paper really does it all for you in creating such a simple card! The only thing I have done is add some ribbon and the sentiment onto a white die cut Stitched Labels Framelit and mounted the designer paper onto cardstock.

I’ve used 3 different stamp sets for this card; Itty Bitty stamp set ‘for you’, the flower is from Accented Blooms stamp set and Varied Vases stamp set for the inside sentiment. The Wink of Stella was used to colour the floral image next to the sentiment!

Three-fold card with Share What You Love SDSP and instructions

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another style card that uses the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is available now as part of the early release to customers. Click here to see more!

This is a three fold card, and you can make two cards from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Cut your sheet to 12″ x 6″, then score at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾”. You also need some white card 2¾” x 3¾” and black card 3” x 4” for the front. Ensure you stamp, then mount the layers and only add glue to the back of the card on one side before adding to the centre of your card. You don’t want to glue all the functioning layers together!

As you open the first fold, you then add the next sentiment and so on.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2

I used the 2″ circle punch and the starburst punch which is the perfect size to layer. The sentiments are from the coordinating Love What You Do stamp set.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 3

The sentiment on the back of the card is from the Picture Perfect Birthday set which is going to carryover into the new annual catalogue!

I just adore the pearly shine on this DSP, so I actually added a layer on the back for where I will write my birthday message.

Merry Christmas! Impossible Gift Box

Dear Crafters,

Merry Christmas to everyone! It may not quite be Christmas Day where you are, but here in Australia it is Christmas morning, my kids are up and going through their Christmas stockings, waiting patiently (haha) for all the adults (we have my inlaws staying here too) to wake so they can open the rest of the presents under the tree! It’s such a magical time of the year ♥

Today I can finally share this little gift box idea inspired by Julie DiMatteo of The Paper Pixie. I made one following Julie’s video tutorial, but it wasn’t tall enough to fit in a gift card, so I played with the measurements and came up with one that was slightly taller, and you know what, I did it!!!

This box is called the Impossible gift box and when you see it, you think, how on earth do you make that? But, once you have made one, you will be quite surprise and fall in love with it too!

So, the one on the right is using Julie’s measurements, and the one on the left are my altered measurements!

I wrote the names of my niece’s on the letter held by the pandas, so no need for additional gift tags!!! Winning!!!!

What I love most about these boxes, is that the lid isn’t a separate piece which can get lost. It is all in one and you lift the top of the box to open it and fill it up. See the pictures below as to the mechanism of how it opens, just so clever! I was able to fit a gift card, lip gloss and some Christmas chocolates into each one before closing it up again.

Unfortunately, I cannot supply a full list of product used, as many are retired and this is the perfect time to use them up when making Christmas gifts, however, the Panda stamp set is going to be available from 3rd January as one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets, along with the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper used on that same project! The Lemon Lime Twist ribbon will also be available on 3rd January in the Occasions catalogue!

Be sure to download a copy of the Occasions catalogue and the Sale-a-bration brochure on my SU Catalogue Library page on 3rd January 2018.

Click here to watch how Julie made her impossible gift box!

My measurements for the taller box are:
Base card 9” x 8¼”
Score on 9” side at 2”, 6”, 7”, 8”
Score on 8¼” side at 2”, 4”, 6”, 8”

Christmas Star Gift Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I have the cutest little gift box in the shape of a Christmas Star! But you could use it for any occasion really. I have used the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This box doesn’t even require any glue to hold it together, it is such a clever project and is actually much easier than it looks!

I got the inspiration for this from a lady in the USA, Julie DiMatteo of The Paper Pixie. She has some amazing tutorials for the most stunning projects and I happened to catch this one as she was doing a live video and immediately got crafting to make one before I forgot the measurements. You too can watch her video by clicking on her name above.

Rustic Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today I continue my Christmas inspiration from the Holiday catalogue using the Musical Season Bundle and the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I wanted to do a more rustic Christmas card, but still using some traditional colours for Christmas. I have gone with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake!

Christmas card using Stampin Ups Musical Season Bundle & Merry Music DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. DIY

I love how this sentiment stamped in the Black Memento ink looks with the stamped off Cherry Cobbler Lyre behind! I sponged the edges of this piece with a sponge dauber and crumb cake ink to soften the edges. It is mounted up on Cherry Cobbler card with the ribbon running between them.

Again, I couldn’t leave the little drummer boy off the card, so I stamped him on the inside and on the envelope!

Peace on Earth

Dear Crafters,

Whoa, can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas?!!!!

On Monday I shared some quick and easy Christmas cards, and this is another one using similar products, but instead I’m using the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Some glimmer paper is added a a banner behind the sentiment for some Christmas sparkle and the enamel embellishments are actually left over from last years catalogue, but are the perfect accents.

The inside of the card is stamped with the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set. A strip of Silver glimmer paper is added at the bottom.

Masculine Card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle with Sheet Music

Dear Crafters,

Here is another Masculine card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle, Sheet Music and Rose Wonder stamp sets, Wood Textures DSP and the Copper Metallic Foil!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Seasonal Layers thinlits & Wood Textures DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DIY

I love the simplicity of this card, although it uses many different products. The Copper gives it a gorgeous shine and I love how the Sheet Music stamp is directly stamped onto the Wood Textures DSP! Can you see that under those leaves? I actually stamped it off once before stamping onto the paper so it was a little more subtle.

I copper embossed the Early Espresso card with the large maple leaf and heat set it before die cutting the shape. The sentiment is actually from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

I also stamped the large maple leaf on the inside of the card and on the envelope to tie it all together.

Masculine Thank You Card

Dear Crafters,

Are you like me and struggle with Masculine cards? Well, I have been on a bit of a roll lately with lots of requests for Masculine cards, and this Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is perfect to use!!!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP, Painted Harvest & Seasonal Layers thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DI

I have obviously gone for the earthy tones and the Seasonal Layers thinlits are the perfect match, along with some of the burlap ribbon. The sentiment is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set as I wanted a fairly large image to stamp onto the Oval Stitched Shapes framelits die cut.
