Let the Good Times Roll on Australia Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share this card using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue. You may remember I shared one earlier in January that was a feminine one, but today is my dads 70th birthday and I thought this was an appropriate card for him, as it brought back wonderful memories of the times he would take me on the rides at the theme parks while my mum & sister looked on in terror!!!! Dad & I loved them!!!

The base card measures 8¼” x 5⅞” and is folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Are you ready to see the magic happen as you open up the card to reveal the 3D pop up inside?

Who wouldn’t get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out so no more fussy cutting! I have used lots of colour as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Remember, here are the tips I found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Birthday card for the boys!

Dear Crafters,

Can you believe there are only 2 more days left of 2017?

Where on earth did this year go??? It all happened so fast and with Christmas done and dusted, it’s time to start thinking about Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue.

Today’s card is full of fun colour and uses the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 3rd January!

What kid doesn’t love a party blower on their birthday? I know for sure that they are a hit amongst my girls and I’m sure little boys are no different!

Masculine card using Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

I have used some beautiful bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This stamp set is photopolymer, so lining up the stamps to create the party blowers is actually not as hard as it may seem. I just love this colour combination for boys and all the stamps in this set, make it so easy to create such a fun card.

I have made this card with my nephew in mind. His birthday is in January and he loves blues and greens, so perfect for him.

It’s a Roller Coaster Ride!

Dear Crafters,

Who doesn’t love a bright and colourful kids birthday card?!!! Today I am using the Let the Good Times Roll stamp set, with the coordinating Thrill Ride Pop-up Thinits dies (available in a bundle) from the upcoming Occasions catalogue due for release in January, and check them out!

Here is the front of the card. These little roller coaster cars are so cute with the birthday balloons hanging from them as they travel along the track.

but open the card and this is where the magic happens….

Check out the pop up on the inside!! Isn’t it amazing?! I have to admit, this card did take a bit of time to create, as it was quite fiddly and time consuming, but it is so worth it. You just need to take your time and keep manipulating the pieces to get it right. Make sure you score along the bottom of the roller coaster and along the edges on either side of the tracks with your bone folder, to make it easier too.

This card does fold flat to fit into a C6 envelope and can be mailed!!!

You’re sweet!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more cards using the Cool Treats Suite.

There is nothing better than an ice cold treat when the sun is shining, especially today…. a public holiday in Melbourne!!!

I love how the framelits cut inside the stamped image, so as not to leave a white border around the edges of the ice treats.

And here is another card with an ice cream using the same colour combination!

I love how quick and easy these cards are to make using a little stamping, die cutting and some Designer Papers!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Punch Art, Stampin' Up!

Meerkat birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I just have to share with you a card that my 10 year old daughter made for her friend’s birthday on Wednesday. Our initial conversation was that her friend loves Meerkats and my instant reaction was, how the heck do we do that???! Anyway, this is what she created all by herself and I am so proud of her!

Isn’t it amazing??! I love it!

She even stamped the balloon and the age of her friend!

And my heart almost melted when I read inside the card ♥

Kids Cards, Masculine

Dinosaur Roar

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a new stamp set from the annual catalogue that I fell in love with the minute I saw it.

I don’t have any other stamp sets like this one and although I have two girls of my own, they adore dinosaurs!!!

Let’s get started!

Stampin' Up! No Bones About It Dinosaurs

My base card is Old Olive, then a layer of Whisper White. I stamped the leaves around the edge in Old Olive and Wild Wasabi ink. The dinosaur is stamped in Real Red ink and then I stamped the skeleton with Craft White ink onto Basic Black card before adding it with dimensionals.

Don’t you think it looks like an x-ray machine with the skeleton?!!! I love it!!!

Stampin' Up! No Bones About It Dinosaurs

I stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Stazon ink. The little heart was punched from the Heart Border Punch in Real Red card stock.

Stampin' Up! No Bones About It Dinosaurs

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of your card too.

Please leave a comment to let me know what you think of my card!!!
