Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Personalised masculine birthday card using Sweet Cupcake!

Hello Friends,

My project today is for a little boy turning 8! I am terrible with creating cards for boys as I don’t have any boys in my family, especially not at this age anyway! It was Joel’s birthday during the recent school holidays and he had a party at Timezone which my daughter was so excited about. This is the card I finally came up with!

Masculine birthday card using Stampin Ups Large Letters dies & Sweet Cupcake stamp set by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia 2017

The icing on this cupcake was meant to look like choc-mint and the cupcake represents the O in his name. I also embossed the card base with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF for some extra texture.

I stamped another cupcake and placed it inside the card with the sentiment from the same stamp set, Sweet Cupcake.

The reason I chose to use Lemon List Twist for the card base is because it matched the gift bag that we had put the present in!!!

30th birthday card for an AFL Richmond Tigers fan!

Hello Friends,

Today I share a card that was a customer request for a 30th birthday, but the brief was to have it in the Richmond Tigers colours of the AFL team.

I started with a black card and added a strip of Daffodil Delight card diagonally across the card front. I did have to google the image and print it for the logo!

The Gold glimmer was used for the sentiments and die cut using the Happy Birthday thinlits die and the retired Little Numbers dies.

on the inside I placed another piece of Daffodil Delight card with a strip of black across the bottom.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

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

Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Lovely as a Tree

Dear Crafters,

Today I focus on the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, as it is always a point of discussion when a new catalogue is made available to demonstrators!

I wasn’t able to attend the recent Stampin’ Up! event on the weekend and so I have no idea if this set has made it into the new annual catalogue or not.

Anyway, I am going to give it a plug anyway as it has been around for many years and is such a versatile stamp set for so many occasions, but today a masculine theme for some sympathy cards.

Here we go!

My colour scheme for this one is very monotone in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate!

and this next one is using Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke.

 

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card & envelope too!

I can’t wait to find out if this has made it into the new catalogue, but I guess I will find out tomorrow when, we as demonstrators, can view it online before everyone else!!!! I can’t wait to see what is new and what is retiring, one of the benefits of being a demonstrator, is finding out first!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Make a wish

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a very quick and easy card to create, using some DSP, banners, sentiment, punch and twine!

IMG_4434

I love this dandelion designer paper which you can earn for FREE with any $90 order. It is the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper available during Saleabration 2016. 12 sheets of 12×12 double sided designs.

IMG_4436

The sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and is perfect with this paper. As kids we always grabbed those dandelions and blew them to make a wish, didn’t you?! Maybe you still do!!!!

IMG_4435

Anyway, the sentiment was stamped and cut out using the Note Tag Punch. The banners were made using the Banner Triple Punch and layered behind the tag. Some gorgeous two-tone baker’s twine was added.

I love the simplicity of this style of card. What do you think?

Sympathy with Sheltering Tree

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some more sympathy cards following my recent posts earlier this month, where I said I would make some in advance to make it easier for when the time comes to send one out to a loved one during their difficult time.

But, this time I have done a more masculine card. You don’t want to be sending a pretty pink one to a male friend, but I will include one of those too!

Crazy About You

Dear Crafters,

I am going to share a card with you today of a colour combination that I don’t usually put together, but in fact, I have fallen in love with!

I have used two Bundles from the Occasions Catalogue and with each bundle you can save 15%.

The 1st bundle is Crazy About You stamp set and the Hello You Thinlits, and the 2nd bundle is Petal Potpourri stamp set and the coordinating Flower Medallion punch.

Flowers make me happy and this card certainly is a bright and happy card.

Petal Potpourri Crazy About You Stampin' Up!

The base card is Hello Honey with a layer of Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper.

The flowers are stamped in Hello Honey ink on the coordinating card stock and punched out using the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch. I used dimensionals to add the flowers to the card, slightly overlapping them, after adding some Hello Honey ribbon and bow.

Petal Potpourri Crazy About You Stampin' Up!

I added the “happy” die cut from the Hello You Thinlits and added it with Tombo Glue. The “birthday” sentiment is stamped and punched with the Word Window punch.

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

Petal Potpourri Crazy About You Stampin' Up!

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