Artistic Collage

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the Collage technique with the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.

I embossed the island indigo base card with the Floral Affection TIEF.

Next, I cut a piece of whisper white card to 2.5″ x 3.5″ and stamped the You’ve Got This background stamp across one corner.

Then I stamped the Awesomely Artistic images layering them in a collage format, using mint macaron, island indigo and bermuda bay inks.

I stamped the sentiment and border onto whisper white card and cut it out with paper snips. I added some rhinestones for a little bling!

I added silver glimmer ribbon by stapling it to the top then adding the tag with dimensionals!

My style is not in the form of collage stamping, but I was happy with this!

What do you think of this card?

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, feminine, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

World Chocolate Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today is World Chocolate Day and what better way to celebrate than with a card in its honour!!!

I LOVE chocolate, no I mean I REALLY LOVE and this card is probably going to stay in my stash as I really love it also!!!

There is a lot of work in this card, in that there are lots of little pieces to cut and glue together. You will need some patience for this one if you are to make it!

World Chocolate Day, Floral Affection TIEF, Suite Sayings, #stampinup @cardsbykate @cardsbykate morgan

The black card base is A5 (21cm x 14.8cm) scored in the centre at 10.5cm.

Sweet Sugarplum layer is 10cm x 14.3cm (sponge the edges)

Black layer is 9cm x 13.3cm

12 x Chocolate pieces (chocolate chip cardstock) are 2cm x 2.5cm (sponge edges) & top layer is 1.5cm x 2cm (sponge edges then embossed with Floral Affection Embossing folder). Glue each piece down with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

Make sure you do sponge the edges of all the cardstock as it gives it the depth needed to make it look real. Yes, it is a lot of work but how cool is it though?

Cut a piece of DSP to 11cm x 8cm. At each side I folded it over and glued to the back so the block actually looks wrapped.On the right side it is cut at 6cm up to the left side to get that angle.  Before gluing it down, add some aluminium foil.

How beautiful is this colour combination too? I love the Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Black together.

I even added another piece of chocolate to the bottom right inside of the card and the envelope (although I didn’t take photos of these, oops!)

What do you think? Will you give it a try?

Flowers, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

For all the thoughtful things you do

Dear Crafters,

Here’s a classic navy and white colour combination with a hint of colour!

Floral Phrases, Floral Boutique DSP, #stampinup, DIY, Floral Affection TIEF, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I adore this new designer series paper, Floral Boutique. I have teamed it together with the coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases and the new Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Once I embossed the white card, I die cut it with the Oval framelits. I began by colouring the navy flowers with the aquapainter, but decided to use the Stampin’ Write Markers for a more solid colour. I went over the flowers only with the Wink of Stella.

Floral Affection

Dear Crafters,

Last week I shared some cards using the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape and today I have a card using the DSP and the Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the same suite!

So here is my card!

Affectionately Yours DSP, Thoughtful Banners, Layering Squares Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Floral Affection TIEF, DIY, #stampinup

The sentiment is a new stamp set, Thoughtful Banners that will be available from 1st June in the brand new 2016-2017 Annual catalogue. It can also be purchased in a bundle with the Duet Banners punch, saving you 10%. It is a photopolymer set, so it is completely clear and pliable. As you can see, I have shaped the sentiment to the shape of the banner!

Affectionately Yours DSP, Thoughtful Banners, Layering Squares Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Floral Affection TIEF, DIY, #stampinup

The embossing folder is also a new product and I jazzed it up by adding some Wink of Stella on the raised image. I’m not sure if you can see that clearly in the photos?!

Some people commented that by placing the banner upside down (so to speak) it looks like my card is smiling!

Do you like my design?
