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!).

Baby Wipe Technique

Dear Crafters,

I had a card making class on 8th October where we I taught the baby wipe technique!

If you need to make a few cards at a time, this technique is a great way to start. I have used the same technique, but multiple stamp sets for a different look!

baby-wipe-technique-bloomin-love-happy-heart-tief-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

The ink colours I have used are: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Dapper Denim & Island Indigo!

There are loads of tutorials on YouTube if you have never tried this technique before.

baby-wipe-technique-bloomin-love-happy-heart-tief-cards-by-kate-feminine-thank-you-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

This cards uses the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the Happy Heart Textured Impression Embossing Folder.

This next card uses the Floral Phrases stamp set.

Don’t you just love that colour variation as the inks blend together on the baby wipe?!!

And my 3rd and final card for this post, is a sweet cupcake card!

Just check out that frosting and the ribbon I’ve tied in a knot rather than a bow if I was making a feminine card!

Stacked With Love

Hello Crafters,

I am getting in a day early to wish my mother-in-law a very happy birthday for tomorrow! You may think “terrible MIL”, but I actually get along very well with mine and we share similar interests, as she is also in my Stampin’ Up! team!!!!

Anyway, I have a very pretty card for you today, using the Happy Hearts TIEF, Stacked With Love DSP stack and the cute Sweetheart punch.

Stacked With Love

I just love these soft tones and patterns in these papers are just perfect for this style of card. In fact, I love everything about this card, from the ribbon, to the texture, so much yumminess!!!!!

This would be a perfect Valentine’s Day card lol.

I have used Pink Pirouette and Real Red throughout this card and I didn’t add a sentiment, as I thought with all the hearts it was obvious enough.

Stacked With Love

The ribbon and layering give added texture and dimension, not to mention gorgeousness!!!

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card and your envelope. This time I have glued some of the DSP and a punch rather than stamping!

Stacked With Love

It’s a Girl!

Dear Crafters,

With loads of my friends and work colleagues who are pregnant at the moment, I thought I had better stock up on some baby cards. Not knowing if they are having a boy or a girl, I thought I had better do a few of each!!!!

I just love this cute Happy Heart embossing folder, so needed to include some on my baby cards. I have used the colours Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Real Red along with some of the Stacked With Love DSP.

Baby Girl

I stamped the jumpsuit with one of the images from Something For Baby, and die cut it with the coordinating Baby’s First Framelits. These two products can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15%.

Baby Girl

I added a heart punched from some Real Red Core’dinations card stock using the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Baby Girl

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.
