Frame with Interchangeable ‘O’

Today I am sharing the project we made at my class on Thursday and the ladies had a great time making them. I allowed them to make up to 5 each and choose their own colours. Below are all the examples I had for them to choose from!

I got the frames from KMart and started by removing the glass. I cut a piece of Whisper White card to 8″x6″ and scored it across the page at every 1/2″. Not sure if you can see that in the photo? I placed this back in the frame, then the glass and the other pieces that it came with before putting the backing piece in. Having the scored lines allowed me to line up the H, M, E, leaving a space for the interchanging ‘O’. These were die cut using the Large Letters Framelits dies. Each of the ‘O’s were die cut using either the Layering Circle Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits or the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. Behind the ‘O’ is a magnet glued to the white card. Behind each ‘O’ I have added some Magnet tape.

Under each photo below I will list the decorating products and colours used.

Heart of Christmas: Joyous Noel is divine

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am sharing more stunning product from the new Holiday Catalogue, which started today! Be sure to request your own copy of the catalogue.

Joyous Noel Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018

I adore this Joyous Noel Designer Series paper with its hints of copper foil, just stunning. My base card is Merry Merlot, embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. A strip of the Joyous Noel DSP is added to the top and some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon… yes, reversible ribbon, is tied in a loose knot and added. I tied the copper star wire element to the ribbon with a small piece of copper metallic thread so it dangles down.

Joyous Noel Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan, 2018

I embossed the sentiment using Versamark ink and Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it. I die cut it out using the Merry Christmas Thinlits die before dragging the edges across the Versamark ink pad and dipping them in the copper embossing powder. How pretty does it look?!

This stamp set is photopolymer, so they are easy to line up perfectly every time, and look how crisp the sentiment is, just perfect!!!

Colour Creations: Coastal Cabana with Bella & Friends

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Coastal Cabana!!! I have to say, I was so excited that it returned with the colour revamp this year. I just adore it ♥

I got inspiration from Tina Rappe for this card, but changed it up to suit our Australian paper sizes. I also made one for my daughter’s 12th birthday with the Pretty Kitty which you can see here. This was one of the cards I taught at my last card class too!

Today I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP which is a stack of 6″ x 6″. This pack doesn’t actually have Coastal Cabana as one of its colours, but I thought this coordinated quite well anyway.

The front panel is embossed using the Basket Weave TIEF. I thought it was perfect for this card, as I imagine most puppies having a basket to sleep in!

Bella & Friends Fun Fold card using Stampin Up Garden Impressions DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2018

The puppy is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils; Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Real Red then used the Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colour.

I had a small strip of the Designer Paper left over, so I added it the centre layer where I will add my message. The ribbon is a retired one from a Sale-a-bration freebie from a few years back!

There’s so much to love about…

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Garden Impressions Suite; Garden Impressions designer series paper with the coordinating Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions thinlits dies.

Abstract & Garden Impressions by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

My colour combination is Melon Mambo, Petal Pink & Shaded Spruce. Check out that pretty Metallic ribbon bow and you may notice I’ve also used the metal leaf trinket that also coordinates with the Petal Passion suite! The stamping of the Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce were stamped off first, to give that lighter tone.

Tissue Box cover with Share What You Love SDSP

Dear Crafters,

Sniff sniff, I’m back to work today after 2 weeks of holidays at home, so lucky I have a beautiful tissue box to make things better!

Today I share a tissue box cover that I created using a 12″ x 12″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. You are probably going to ask me for the measurements, but to be honest, I just measured around a tissue box to get a rough guide; so approximately 3-7/8″, 8-1/8″ and then rotate 90º and score at 1-3/4″ from either end. The ends, once you cut the tabs to create the box, do not make it all the way down the box, so I just covered both ends with a larger piece of DSP and you wouldn’t even know!

Tissue Box Cover using Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

I wasn’t really happy with the top where the tissues come through the box, so I added some strips of scallop edging to the underside!

Tissue Box Cover using Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018

This fits really snug over the tissue box and it is open at the bottom for easy access.

WARNING: I found mine in the recycle bin last night, as hubby used the last tissue and threw it away, so ensure you tell ALL the family members that you have created a masterpiece and not to throw it in the bin… be warned!!! LOL

Tiffany style gift bag for a special birthday celebration!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a special gift for a special team member who is celebrating a milestone birthday. Stampin’ Up! have the best products, but to be honest, what I also love is the amazing friends we meet along the journey. I have to admit, I love my little team of ladies who also share my passion of Stampin’ Up! but we have this amazing friendship that will be ever lasting too!

I was inspired by Connie Stewart of Simply Simple Stamping who shared a video on how to make this gorgeous Tiffany & Co style gift bag, and I thought it was the perfect size for the gift I had purchased for this special milestone birthday.

I used Pool Party cardstock and the Gold Metallic edged ribbon. The sentiment from the Best Bunny stamp set, was stamped in Memento Black ink. Here is the gift I purchased… see, they fit inside the bag perfectly!

Anzac Day broach made from paper!

Dear Crafters,

Anzac Day is a time for the community to come together to remember and recognise the service and sacrifice of members of the Australian Defence Force. Originally a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces on Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, Anzac Day is a public expression of gratitude and reflection resonates to the present day.​

Anzac-day.jpg

So today, in memory of the ANZACs, I have made my own Red Poppy to pin on my top!

ANZAC poppy broach using Stampin Up Pansy punch by Kate Morgan, Australia

I used the Pansy punch, which unfortunately is retiring soon, and punched 3 x Real Red flowers. I used my bone folder to curl the petals and to loosen the fibres of the card so it becomes more pliable. I then used a retired punch (cannot remember what set it was from) for the black centre. I used the Piercing mat and tool to put a hole through the centre then joined them together with a black split pin. I glued a small magnet to the back so I could then add it to my top without piercing the material, by adding a magnet inside my top to hold it on!

Here’s s closer look!

Sweet scene on the Waterfront

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the Waterfront Stamp set in the Occasions catalogue 2018. I don’t actually have this set, but a few team members got together recently and we love to share stamps sets on the day, that we may not own ourselves. It’s a great way for team bonding and getting to try sets we may not appreciate until you have a go!

Naturally, I opened it up and wondered where to start, so I turned to the iPad and Pinterest and I was inspired by Sarah Fleming from the USA. Thank you Sarah!

Bird Banter on our 12th Wedding Anniversary!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card I made for my hubby. It’s our 12th Wedding Anniversary today and what better stamp set to use, than the Bird Banter! lol

Unfortunately he is working today, even though it is a public holiday here in Melbourne for Labour Day long weekend, but we will go out for dinner today to celebrate.

We aren’t the mussy, lovey dovey type, more typical of the bird banter type, so I got out my unloved Bird Banter stamp set and got to work. I really haven’t used this stamp set much at all, so it needed some love.

For a masculine card, I selected Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and added some Peekaboo Peach for a fun look.

Bird Banter for our 12th Wedding Anniversary, Stampin Up Occasions 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstator, Australia.

On the inside of the card, I sponged the edges with a dauber with Lemon Lime Twist ink and stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink. This sentiment is from the Best Birds stamp set.

I have coloured the images using a Blender Pen and inkpads. No surprises there, as I think you all know my love of shading that I get with this technique!
