Bright Magenta Birthday

Tonight I am featuring this stunning Designer Paper, Flowers for Every Season with the NEW in Color, Magenta Madness. Oh my, the bright and cheery colours here make my heart so happy!!!!

Magenta Madness Feminine Handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Well Written dies were cut multiple times and glued together to add some depth and so they pop up from the card a little. Those butterflies are die cut in Brass Foil and add a gorgeous shine. The centres of the flowers have the Bumblebee coloured Enamel Dots!

Behind the die cut images, you can see the whisper white layer, but can you also see the vellum layer behind it? I felt it was needed so the sentiment didn’t get too lost on that amazing designer paper.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blushing Bride

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blushing Bride!

Oh how I love this Arrange a Wreath Bundle 🤍 and especially with this colour combination of Blushing Bride, Magenta Madness and Whisper White.

Blushing Bride Magenta Madness Whisper White

White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, scored at 12.5cm
Blushing Bride Layer: 11.5cm x 11.5cm, embossed with the Greenery Embossing folder

The 3 x wreaths are die cut in each of the coloured cardstock. The Magenta Madness and White wreaths are glued together and the Blushing Bride wreath is added on top with mini dimensionals. Add some Wink of Stella to the Blushing Bridge wreath.

Stamp 8 x hearts in Magenta Madness ink and die cut them out. These are added with mini dimensionals and a ribbon bow added with Multipurpose glue.  

The sentiment is stamped onto white card and cut using the Everyday Label Punch and added to the centre with dimensionals. Are you wondering why the punched piece doesn’t look like the punch shape? Well, I needed a smaller shape but I liked the shape of the side of this punch, so when placing the sentiment into the punch, I punched it closer to the top of the sentiment, then turned it around and put it back into the punch from the inside and slid it in until I was happy with the position and punch!!! Tada!!!

Vase of Daisies for a 40th birthday

I just love these daisy punches and today’s card is simply stunning with a vase full of them! The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foils are gorgeous and you need to get them before they are gone. Just look at these colours together!!!

Simply punching daisies in both sizes and layering a couple of them, adds depth to the card. I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones around the card and some of the larger gold faceted gems to the centres of the daisies.

I embossed the card base with the Subtles Dynamic TIEF which gives it a lovely textured background.

This card was made for a dear friend of mine who turned 40 this week and I used my retired little number dies which I adore…. but there could be a similar product returning to the new catalogue in a couple of weeks, so exciting!!!!

Golfer with Lipstick!

Tonight’s project is another feminine golfer card using the gorgeous colour, Lovely Lipstick. I am going to be so sad when this colour retires in June 😪

Feminine Golf card 2 using Stampin Up Country Club Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

Colour the line image on the reverse side of the DSP with Stampin’ Blends Markers. The wood element I initially stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink but it bled so bad and I was thinking that I had ruined it. Easy fix: colour with the the blend marker and then stamp the sentiment in Stazon Black ink! Phew!

Regrowth after the devastating fires

Wow, it’s April already and what a year it has been! We started the year here in Australia with those terrible bushfires raging across our country and now the coronavirus has taken over the world 😦  Thank goodness it is school holidays now and we can isolate in safety at home, meaning plenty of time to craft! Who doesn’t love a good reason for that?!!!

We need to go on and stay positive, so tonight’s card is bright and cheery and has lots of poppy flowers reminding me of the regrowth happening following the devastating fires!

Peaceful Poppies Suite Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper is amazing and you don’t need to do too much to your cards to make the most of the gorgeous designs. Adding a few embellishments from the Peaceful Poppies Elements pack made creating this card so quick to make. I love the vellum element behind the pre-printed one and that black circle really makes the poppies pop!

On the inside I added some white card with some extra triangles of DSP left over from a previous project.

Peaceful Moments Double Gate Fold Card with Instructions

Tonight’s card is a Double Gate Fold design to show off this gorgeous designer paper!

Cut a piece of 12″ x 12″ DSP down to 5½” x 12″ and score it at 2″, 4″, 8″, 10″.
From each of the top corners, measure down 2¾” and mark with a pencil. From that pencil mark, up to the first scoreline, cut the corner off and glue it to the bottom right corner of the card (flipping the design over). Repeat this on the other side!

Gently fold your scorelines (mountain fold, valley fold, valley fold, mountain fold) to create this card.

My chosen Sale-a-bration product to showcase tonight is the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, free with any $90 order. I just love the images in this 5 piece stamp set. The font of the sentiments is so feminine and it is so versatile for any occasion.

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up Saleabration 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia p

This card is a lovely monotone in Crumb Cake and White. The layer is a piece of Crumb Cake card, cut 5mm smaller than the card front. I used the stunning Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the layer before gluing it to the card front.

The image is stamped twice onto Crumb Cake card in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut the entire image out and then the second one, I just fussy cut the flowers & leaves, so I could layer them on top for extra dimension.

In the past I would have coloured the flowers with the Craft White Ink and an AquaPainter, however, I used the White Chalk Marker. It was so much easier!

I added a few Rhinestones for some bling!

The inside I stamped the image in second generation stamping (stamped off once on plain paper before onto the card). The sentiment is stamped full strength.

This next card is created exactly the same way, however, I added some colour with Stampin’ Blends Markers to the flowers for a beautiful spot of colour. I changed up the Rhinestones with Champagne ones!

I even coloured the cake stand on this one to help it stand out more.

Here are both the cards, side by side. Which one is your favourite?

Best Dressed in town!

How cute is this Best Dressed Suite of Products?!! Find them on page 54 of the new Mini catalogue!

This card is fairly easy to create. A simple A5 card with a layer of card stock and Designer Paper. A ribbon tied in a bow around the two layers, then glued to the card base.

Feminine Best Dressed Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia

Some vellum was punched with the Starburst punch and the two stamped images onto white card and cut out with their coordinating dies.

But check out the tassel – you get 18 tassels in 3 coordinating colours in the pack for only $14. Great value and saves trying to make them yourself! I attached it to the parfum with some white baker’s twine. I also coloured the shoe with some Wink of Stella for some glitz (although it doesn’t photograph well).

Feminine Best Dressed Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia s

Life is short, buy the shoes – well, what a great sentiment for many of my friends. They sure know how to shop for shoes!!!

Beautiful Friendship is a wonderful thing

Tonight I have a card that I cased from the Creativity Cave. I just loved the bright colours with the splash of black!

This stamp set, Beautiful Friendship, would have to be one of my favourites from the Annual catalogue this year. The Subtle 3D embossing folder would have to be my favourite of all the embossing folders too.
