Best Dressed Arrow Fold Card

This Best Dressed Suite is so pretty and the Designer Paper is absolutely stunning. I love all the colours in it and today I have created an arrow fold card. I searched the internet for many different types of fancy fold cards and came up with this one. I couldn’t find one with instructions for Australian measurements, but it was pretty easy to work out!

Aren’t these new Stitched So Sweetly dies gorgeous? I just love the stitching and the different shapes in the one set for beautiful layering. They were one of the first items into my shopping bag!

On the inside, I used the extra pieces of the DSP and some white card for adding a sentiment when required.

Beautiful Moments in Grace’s Garden

I just adore this bundle of Grace’s Garden. Maybe it is because it’s my daughters name, but also I love cottage gardens full of flowers! I also wanted to use the Beautiful Moments stamp set, as it has the image of two little girls holding hands, another reminder of my own two girls ♥

Beautiful Moments & Grace's Garden Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.jpg

The image of the two little girls with the sand buckets was used in my card, however I didn’t need them carrying buckets into the garden. I just wanted them holding hands, so I coloured the lines of the image I wanted with my Black Stampin’ Write Marker, gave it a huff of hot air before stamping it onto some white card. Then I fussy cut the image before colouring it.

For the path under the rose arbour, I used the Tasteful Textures stamp set with Crumb Cake ink. I also sponged it a little to blend the colour better.

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tropical

Tonight I have another sneak peek for some Tropical goodness available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

The Tropical Oasis Suite is one not to miss. You can see loads of this suite used on this card; the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Topics dies, Coastal Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Tropical Oasis Trinkets and the Braided Burlap Trim!

Tropical Oasis Suite by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia. Mini catalogue 2020

How gorgeous is that Coastal Weave embossing folder?!!! Oh my, I just adore it! I sponged the edges of this layer with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

The Braided Burlap Ribbon is soft and at the ends, I pulled it gently so that it started to unravel for a more coastal feel. I tied one of the trinkets to it with some Linen Thread.

The Hibiscus flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink and then I used a Blender Pen to gently move some of the colour around. This method was also used on the leaves (Garden Green ink). The centre of the flower is coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker with some Wink of Stella on the stamen.

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tulips

One week to Christmas, where has this year gone? It has flown by so quickly and the kids finish school on Friday, so they will be around to help out prior to Christmas Day celebrations and my brother-in-laws home. What are you doing for Christmas?

Tonight I have a sneak peek of the Stamp set we received at OnStage last month, Timeless Tulips. It also has a coordinating punch, so no need to fussy cut the tulips, yay!

This is a Pear Pizzazz card base and then stamping onto Whisper White with Pear Pizzazz and Rococo Rose ink. Stamp 3 extra large tulips and 2 leaves and punch out. Add these with dimensionals once the card is put together. Linen thread is wrapped around twice and tied in a bow. The sentiment is also from the same set and added with mini dimensionals.

I hope you are ready for Christmas, then early next year, Stampin’ Up!s Sale-a-bration begins!

Silhouette Scenes with the Rice Background Technique

Tonight I have a card that is created using the Rice Background Technique. Really it is a watercolour wash on the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper and while it’s still very wet, sprinkle some rice (or rock salt) over it and allow it to dry without moving it. Once it is dry, the rice draws the colour from the paper. Brush off the rice and you are left with this lovely effect. Mine is used to look like rain at sunset!

I stamped the image (Silhouette Scenes) with Versamark ink and applied the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

Heirloom texture and embossing

When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.

Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.

I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!

I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

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!

Another milestone with Double figures!

Today we had another milestone in our house; my baby turned 10 and it is truly a bit of a shock to us! How did that happen…. a teenager and a 10 year old in two weeks?!!! LOL

Anyway, she wanted a card with flowers on it, so of course my go to floral stamp set at the moment is Beautiful Friendship, so that it what was used.

Beautiful Friendship – $38.00 (#149252)

Here is her card!

10th birthday card feminine using Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship stamp set by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019..JPG

I used the retired Little Numbers dies (I’ll never get rid of them!) and the wishes is from the Well Written Dies. How awesome does this look with the glittery black organdy ribbon and the black border of the Nested Labels dies?!! I added some Wink of Stella to the number 10 too.

My daughter loves aqua, so I thought the Coastal Cabana cardstock was a good choice for the base card. On the inside, I stamped the rose and leaves and then added the gorgeous and perfect sentiment from the same stamp set to the centre. I was really happy with how this card turned out and she loved it!

I’m using 3 of my favourite new In Colours; Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.

The fern image is stamped in Purple Posy on Seaside Spray cardstock. The medium daisy is all Seaside Spray (ink & card) and the smaller daisies are stamped in the 3 colours on white card and fussy cut. The leaf punch is used with vellum for a softer look.

The circle punch was used to punch the top of the card so you can pull the white card up to reveal the message inside.

Of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the main daisy and over the Smile sentiment.

Colour Creations: Daisies in Pretty Peacock

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

So today I am featuring Pretty Peacock, and what a stunning colour it is. I have used it with Very Vanilla, the 2019-2021 In Colour 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Daisy Lane stamp set. This also coordinates with the Daisy punch and a new Medium Daisy punch is also available now, but of course mine hasn’t arrived yet, so I fussy cut the small daisy images for now!

I used my bone folder to give the petals more dimension, gently curling them up.

Do you notice that gorgeous new In Colour scalloped linen ribbon too? It’s so gorgeous. I also love the font of the sentiment and how cleanly it stamped. WOW! The new Stitched Nested Label dies are a great addition to your die cutting collection.
