Birthday, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Birthday Blast

Dear Crafters,

Today my youngest daughter has a birthday party to attend and this little 7 year old loves pink apparently. That was the first step in deciding what colours to use, and next decision was what stamps and/or dies to use.

I haven’t yet inked up my Birthday Blast stamp set, so I got that our and the coordinating edgelits, Star Blast.

Oh, and check out the Blushing Bride Glimmer Star Blast!!!

See the stars scattered around the card? Well those came out of the edgelits and I wasn’t going to waste them!  I added some Wink of Stella to the stamped stars.

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Beautiful You Bokeh

Dear Crafters,

 

Today I have the Beautiful You stamp set featuring once again! Do you think I like this stamp set? No, I adore it!!!

I also love this Designer Series Paper, Falling in Love.

The Watercolour Pencils make colouring very easy with the AquaPainter.

and those sentiments, they are just adorable! I have stamped them onto vellum and glued them to the card using Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive.

Those Stitched Shapes Framelits add the extra touch, especially with the scallop circle die behind in vellum!

Birthday, feminine, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Delicate Lace

Dear Crafters,

 

Well as you know, I attended the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live event in Brisbane 2 weeks ago and my team had a blast of a time! It was a time where we receive a copy of the brand new Occasions catalogue and Saleabration brochure. Woohoo!

As a demonstrator who attends these live events, we also get to pre-purchase some of the new products before anyone else. Well, my order arrived this week and I had to have a little play.

Are you ready to see what I made?

I have used Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla. I stamped the background using the brand new Delicate Details stamp set, a Saleabration item. This means that when you purchase product to the value of $90, you can choose this stamp set for FREE!

Check out these new Stitched Shapes Framelits which are also new. These are a pre-released and will definitely be in the next Annual catalogue. So exciting, I just adore them!

This sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, also from the new Occasions 2017 catalogue. I tied a bow with silver metallic thread and placed a pearl in the centre.

Pop out Swing card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another new card technique that I haven’t tried before, the Pop Out Swing card.

Number of Years Pop out Swing card #stampinup Occasions 2016 @cardsbykate

There are loads of Youtube tutorials on this style card, and I can’t remember which one I actually followed. Mind you, I didn’t use the same card size, so in a way, I had to work it out for myself!

I used the Number of Years stamp set for the flowers and the sentiment.

Ink colours used: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Rose Red, Perfect Plum, So Saffron.

I love the soft colours of this card and I also stamped some more flowers on the inside of the card!

Origami Star card

Dear Crafters,

I am posting this early today, as I’m on my way to the airport for a mini break in Queensland for a few days, but don’t fear, you will still be hearing from me!

Today, I share a fancy fold card, called an Origami Star Triangle card. Yes it does look rather fancy, but it is actually quite simple to create.

Here it is closed and then opened up!

Origami Star Triangle Fold card #stampinup     Origami Star Triangle Fold card #stampinup

It’s quite simple as long as you follow the steps on closing it in the correct order.

Firstly close up the bottom right hand side, then the left and then the top folds down and the RHS slips underneath.

Origami Star Triangle Fold card #stampinup  Origami Star Triangle Fold card #stampinup  Origami Star Triangle Fold card #stampinup

I added the DSP to the front and the back so when the star is closed, you get that gorgeous pattern.

I die cut some stars and mounted them to the finished card, being careful to only have the dimensionals on the upper LHS of the star so it only sticks to the top flap of the triangle!

Girly girl

Dear Crafters,

Hey Girl #stampinup

Today I share another card I made using the Hey Girl stamp set! I have used Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and Silver as my colour combination.

Hey Girl #stampinup

I stamped the image on the Whisper White card stock and then fussy cut it out with paper snips.  I coloured her using my Stampin’ Write Markers. Check out that Metallic Foil Doilie. Isn’t it cute? Well you get 24 in a pack and they come in 2 sizes in gold and silver for only $7.00. Check them out here.

The image is added using dimensionals and some twine holding the balloon. A very simple card, but it doesn’t need anything else!

#stampinup Gift Bag & Cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project with you that uses some recently retired card stock and DSP, but I love these colours and miss them lots.

Coastal Cabana is the main colour here, with Smoky Slate and Silver Glimmer card, but these projects can be made with anything you may already have at home!

#stampinup Gift Bag

This cute bag uses only 1 sheet of DSP and A4 card stock.  Ho cute is it? Inside you can see some A5 cards and matching C6 envelopes. It is so sturdy and quite large, as it will hold 10-12 cards depending on the amount of embellishments on the cards.

Here are two of the coordinating cards that I made to go inside.
