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.

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?

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!

Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

Sip Sip Hooray!

Tonight I have used the Sip Sip Hooray Bundle from the Holiday catalogue. I purchased this bundle because it will be so handy for many different occasions; Christmas, Birthdays, Weddings, Engagements, any form of celebration!

Navy and Gold also is very rich and coordinates so well. Behind those bubbles is Gold Foil which really shimmers, but is so hard to photograph. The images of the glasses are stamped in the new Delicata Metallic Golden Glitz ink.

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?

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!

Magnolia Blooms in Shimmer White

Tonight’s card is using the Magnolia Blooms stamp set which can be found in the Beginner Brochure and it also coordinates with the Magnolia Suite in the Annual catalogue. This card is reasonably simple to create with a couple of layers of Designer paper adhered to a card base of Petal Pink.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and a small piece of ribbon added above it. The flower is stamped in Versamark ink on Basic Black card, Shimmer White Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool and watch the magic happen!

Can you see that gorgeous Shimmer White Embossing Powder sparkling?!!! Oh my gosh, it looks even better in real life, just stunning. I cut out the image with Paper Snips and popped it up on some dimensionals so it really stands out.

Yikes, a teenager in the house!

Thirteen years ago my first born arrived (after a 30+ hour labour and 9lbs) into our home turning us into a family!

I cannot believe where the time has gone, but she has been such a joy and gorgeous girl, growing into an amazing teenager. Her favourite colour is Aqua and she is not a girly, girl who likes dresses, pink or sparkles. So today’s card has been quite challenging to create.

All I knew was I needed to start with the colour palette and put 13 somewhere on the card. I got out Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pretty Peacock and thought about doing an ombre effect.

I grabbed the Piece of Cake stamp set…. I mean, who doesn’t like cake for their birthday, right?!!!

13th Birthday Card using Stampin Up Piece of Cake by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019  Handmade.JPG

To line up all those 13 cakes, yep, I managed to stamp 13 cakes, did you count them?!! The Stamparatus was the tool to use, because it was the perfect size for the clear plates to move across one notch at at time and re-stamp again and again.

Once I had stamped all those cakes and cut the white card to size, I die cut the numbers into the centre of the cake tower. I layered up the base card of Pretty Peacock, with a layer of the Noble Peacock Foil and then glued the white card front to it. The numbers were left out and Mini dimensionals were used, doubled up for the height, and added so that the foil could shine through.

I finished by adding some Wink of Stella to the numbers as well as the cake at the top!

Silhouette Birthday Sprinkled with Pigment!

Tonight I have used the new Pigment Sprinkles and created a real mess 🤣

Pigment Sprinkles

 

I began with some of the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, added some sprinkles and spritzed with water…. wow, does it take you by surprise with the brightness of the colours, amazing! I put it aside and while waiting for it to dry, I got out the Silhouette Scenes bundle, Garden Green and Night of Navy cardstock and got started creating the card.

I knew I was going to die cut the tree from the watercolour paper so I worked out where I was going to stamp the image of the girl on the swing and place the sentiment (Magnolia Blooms). I did this in Night of Navy ink using the Stamparatus, so I could re-ink the images multiple times for a darker image.

Once the watercolour paper was dry, I die cut it with the tree die and glued it to the card. Check out the colours on it – you couldn’t get that sort of colouring without these pigment sprinkles. You need to get them and play, but a little tip, buy some disposable gloves!!!
