Foxy, Peekaboo Peach

Dear Crafters,

Today I have challenged myself to make a card using the new In Color, Peekaboo Peach. Now I have to tell you, it was my least favourite of the 2016-2018 in colors, but after completing this card, I think differently of it, lol. It just works so well for the colour of the fox!

I am so happy that this stamp set is carrying over into the new annual catalogue 🙂

I haven’t added a sentiment to this card, because I want to add a “number” when the time comes, to give it to someone with their birthday year!!!!

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Make a Wish

Dear Crafters,

 

Who doesn’t love cupcakes? I know my family love them and what better way to say happy birthday, than with a cupcake!

So today I have a bright and cheery cupcake card using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White.

The ‘wish’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits, but here’s a tip for you…

See the background card stock, emboss it first and then die cut the centre to save on card stock (see below). You will then cover it up with the Peekaboo Peach layer!!!! Adhere this to  the front of an A5 card.

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect!

Don’t forget to stamp inside your card and on the envelope!

Baby wipe Texture

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the baby wipe technique with the Touches of Texture stamp set.

I die cut the Layered Squares framelits into the front of the A5 Emerald Envy card.

Next, I stamped the leaves (emerald envy) onto whisper white card stock and then the outline of the flower with dapper denim ink. I used the large splatter stamp with crushed curry ink and put that behind the flower.

I squirted some drops of crushed curry, blushing bride & soft sky onto some baby wipes that are sitting on a plastic plate, then pressed the stamp into it and then onto the flower!

babywipe-technique-touches-of-texture-hello-glitter-feminine-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I added a gold glimmer sentiment, hello from the Hello you thinlits and some emerald envy thick baker’s twine in a double bow!

I was super happy with the look of this one!

Butterflies, feminine, Stampin' Up!

Butterfly with Detailed Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Do you love butterflies like me? Yes? I find I am always drawn to butterflies for many different types of cards, from sympathy to birthday to Thanks or even just a Thinking of You card!

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup, DIY @cardsbykate

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Very Vanilla embossed with the Fluttering textured impressions embossing folder. Each of these butterflies has a shimmer, which was added by brushing some Wink of Stella over each one.

The layered squares framelits were used to create the square layer and some lace trim added to the bottom of this layer before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I die cut a piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer paper with the Bold Butterfly framelit.

I die cut the larger of the Detailed Floral Thinlits in Very Vanilla card, then placed the bold butterfly framelit over the top and die cut it. Leaving it in the framelit and not removing it just yet, I added small dobs of Tombo glue to the back and then placed the Designer Series Paper butterfly over it, easily lining it up using the edges of the framelit!

I added Wink of Stella to the Vanilla pattern on the butterfly.

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup DIY @cardsbykate

Tie some gold cording trim around the body of the butterfly and two small pieces for the antennae. I also tied a bow around the front of the trim, before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I haven’t added a sentiment, because it really doesn’t need one, but it can then be used for any occasions!!!

Baby, Stampin' Up!

Baby Bear

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a card that I couldn’t wait to create using the brand new Baby Bear stamp set. Check him out, how cute is he?

Baby Bear, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016, Layered Square Framelits

I started by embossing the background of the card using the new Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next I stamped the baby bear 3 times starting with Sahara Sand ink, Crumb Cake and then Soft Suede for the final layer.

Baby Bear, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I used the largest of the plain squares from the new Layered Squares framelits to cut the white layer and then the largest of the scallop squares in Island Indigo card and joined them together with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. Isn’t this just the most adorable baby bear?!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Confetti Art

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another Shaker card using lots of new products from the Annual Catalogue. This one has more of a masculine feel to it, using the gorgeous Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy In Colours.

 Playful Palette, Sprinkles Punch, Thoughtful Banners, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup

The base card I stamped first with the little lights at the top and then the stars all over the card, leaving a blank space where the easel is to go. The easel is stamped and then I die cut the centre using the Layered Square framelits and then fussy cut the easel.

The sentiment is from the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the coordinating Dual Banner punch.

 Playful Palette, Sprinkles Punch, Thoughtful Banners, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup

The bits inside the shaker are created using the new Sprinkles punch. The new foam adhesive strips make creating shaker cards so much easier, be sure to get some in your next order.

And check out that gorgeous ruched ribbon. Can you see the Wink of Stella on the little stars?! You know me, even though it’s a masculine card, a little sparkle on the stars was a must! lol
