Beautiful Bouquet in Pinks

Dear Crafters,

Wow, can you believe it is the end of June and the end of the financial year? It feels like we only just did our tax returns 😉

Today I am featuring the Beautiful Bouquet bundle, one of my favourite bundles in the new Annual Catalogue. By purchasing this stamp set and coordinating framelits together as a bundle, you can save 10%.

Check out the new Dynamic Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Isn’t it stunning! What do you think?

The Powder Pink ribbon is so pretty and I have matched it with the flowers; Berry Burst and Powder Pink. I just love these tones combined with Tranquil Tide.

This is my own design and I still haven’t seen a lot of projects with this bundle, so it’s been fun creating with it. What do you think of my card?

Favourite Retiring Products Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 annual and 2017 occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You have come to me from the talented, Rachel Palmieri!

Now let’s get started!

For my first project, I have used my favourite suite, Cupcakes and Carousels!

Carousel Birthday Card using Stampin Up Cupcakes & Carousel Birthday DSP, Up & Away thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Melbourne. #Occasions2017 3D

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper. It is so bright and colourful and definitely in my colours that I really love to work with. Don’t the layers look wonderful?!

The carousel is gold embossed twice. The bottom layer was directly onto the square white card and the second was die cut with the circle die. Not sure if you can see that lovely gold shine?

The cupcakes are stamped and die cut and added with dimensionals.

I cased this from a card I saw browsing Pinterest by Crafty Little Peach.

My favourite products from the annual catalogue would have to be the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. This was the very first Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I purchased in my starter kit and has always been a favourite. I’m not sure I will ever be able to give it up!

In this card, I have also used the retiring Elegant Butterfly punch, Lovely Lace TIEF, the Subtles Designer Series Paper and the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon.

and those gorgeous mini pearls… they won’t be around any more either, but don’t fear, the packs have been reconfigured and will return in a different format!

This card is the same design as the one above, however, I have used the retiring Happy Hearts TIEF (this really was one of my favs!).

Bird Cage with Succulents

Dear Crafters,

Have I told you how much I am loving the Succulent Garden Designer Series paper?

But this time I have teamed it up with the Builder Birdcage stamp set. I just love how well it coordinates!

Feminine Bird Cage card using Stampin' Ups Builder Birdcage & Succulent Garden DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia. Occasions 2017 DIY

Designer paper is so quick and easy to use to create an interesting background to your cards and scrapbook pages. By placing one sheet onto the card base and then a small strip across the centre behind the focal image is stunning!

Avant Garden

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you one of the FREE Sale-a-bration products that you can choose with any $90 order!

Now, I have to mention that this was not one of the first items in the Sale-a-bration brochure that I added to my list, in fact, it was one of the last. I’m not sure why it didn’t appeal to me straight away, maybe because I already have a few floral stamps…. BUT, when I made this card with it, I was very happy 🙂

The Avant Garden stamp set should now be on your list too!

Hula Hoop Girl

Dear Crafters,

Well it is nearly the end of 2016 and in a way, I am glad to see this year over and very much looking forward to a happier and healthier 2017.

Now that Christmas is over, I am now focusing on the brand new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues available from 4th January!

Today I have the Beautiful You stamp set. When I first saw this particular image, I just knew she had to have a hula hoop swinging around!

hula-hoop-girl-using-stampin-ups-beautiful-you-by-kate-morgan-occasions2017

The background was sponged using the Seasonal Decorative Masks which are currently on sale for $7.00. You get 4 masks for that price too. It’s a bargain!!!

To draw the Hula Hoop, I used the inside of the smallest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits using a black Sharpie pen!!!

hula-hoop-girl-using-stampin-ups-beautiful-you-by-kate-morgan-close-up-occasions2017

I love these Watercolour Pencils, they make colouring super easy and you can use either the Blender Pen or AquaPainter to blend the colour. I have also added some Wink of Stella to her hat!

Designer Series Paper, feminine, Stampin' Up!

One Wild Ride

Dear Crafters,

Oh, my how pleased I am with this card! This is my first time using this stamp set, One Wild Ride and instead of creating a masculine card, which would be my first instinct with motorbikes, I have created a feminine card!

What? you may be thinking, how do you make something so masculine, into a feminine card? Well read on to check it out!!!

Colours used are: Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

I used Blushing Bride only to stamp that background splatter image for a bit of a grungy look. I used Black Momento ink for the rest of the stamping. The strip of Designer Series Paper is from the Pop of Pink pack with a small strip on Silver Glimmer card.

Don’t you love these amazing Layering Ovals Framelits? They make it so quick to add layering to your projects. I popped them up with dimensionals.

born-to-ride-feminine-card-using-stampin-ups-one-wild-ride-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-craft-with-kate-classes-available-in-rowville-diy

I also added some Black Metallic thread behind the ovals for a little extra interest.
