Little Ladybug & Bee

How adorable are these little ladybugs and bees?!!! Did you notice I have a bee on my card? I’ll explain how I made this ladybug into a tree shortly.

The card base is an A5 white card. The next layer is Shimmery White card stock, simply stamped and coloured. Shimmery White card is really beautiful for colouring with the Blends and it has that added shimmer!!! The background was done last with the Light Pool Party Blends Marker.

Okay, so you are wondering how I did the bee? Well, I used the Black Stampin’ Write Marker and coloured the image except the dots on the wings. Gave it a huff of breath and stamped onto the card. How cute!!!!

Best Dressed Ladybug!

Oh my, look at this background, how beautiful is the embossing? This is the new Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Again I have used the Little Ladybug stamp set and a strip of the Best Dressed DSP.

I stamped the ladybug first, then used a mask over her and then stamped the flower so that it looks as though she is sitting on it. Then I coloured them before fussy cutting to add to the card on dimensionals.

The flower petals were covered with Petal Pink Blends Markers and then the Light Flirty Flamingo blends was used as well to give that extra shade of pink. I really love how it turned out! The centre is coloured with Daffodil Delight Blends Markers then Shimmery Crystal Effects added.

On the inside I stamped the row of ladybugs and coloured them in with a simple Happy Birthday sentiment.

Best Dressed Arrow Fold Card

This Best Dressed Suite is so pretty and the Designer Paper is absolutely stunning. I love all the colours in it and today I have created an arrow fold card. I searched the internet for many different types of fancy fold cards and came up with this one. I couldn’t find one with instructions for Australian measurements, but it was pretty easy to work out!

Aren’t these new Stitched So Sweetly dies gorgeous? I just love the stitching and the different shapes in the one set for beautiful layering. They were one of the first items into my shopping bag!

On the inside, I used the extra pieces of the DSP and some white card for adding a sentiment when required.

Beautiful Moments in Grace’s Garden

I just adore this bundle of Grace’s Garden. Maybe it is because it’s my daughters name, but also I love cottage gardens full of flowers! I also wanted to use the Beautiful Moments stamp set, as it has the image of two little girls holding hands, another reminder of my own two girls ♥

Beautiful Moments & Grace's Garden Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.jpg

The image of the two little girls with the sand buckets was used in my card, however I didn’t need them carrying buckets into the garden. I just wanted them holding hands, so I coloured the lines of the image I wanted with my Black Stampin’ Write Marker, gave it a huff of hot air before stamping it onto some white card. Then I fussy cut the image before colouring it.

For the path under the rose arbour, I used the Tasteful Textures stamp set with Crumb Cake ink. I also sponged it a little to blend the colour better.

Best Dressed in town!

How cute is this Best Dressed Suite of Products?!! Find them on page 54 of the new Mini catalogue!

This card is fairly easy to create. A simple A5 card with a layer of card stock and Designer Paper. A ribbon tied in a bow around the two layers, then glued to the card base.

Some vellum was punched with the Starburst punch and the two stamped images onto white card and cut out with their coordinating dies.

But check out the tassel – you get 18 tassels in 3 coordinating colours in the pack for only $14. Great value and saves trying to make them yourself! I attached it to the parfum with some white baker’s twine. I also coloured the shoe with some Wink of Stella for some glitz (although it doesn’t photograph well).

Life is short, buy the shoes – well, what a great sentiment for many of my friends. They sure know how to shop for shoes!!!

Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

The Stampin’ Up Sale of the Year has started and hello to the beginning of a new adventure!!!

Hello 2020 and the beginning of a brand new decade! However it has been a devastating end to 2019 and start to 2020 with the bushfires raging across Australia. I have family very close to the fires in East Gippsland, so I have been keeping a watchful eye on the news. I am trying to remain positive and staying indoors, as Melbourne is covered in a blanket of thick smoke, which is quite an eerie feeling. I can only image how bad it would be in the affected areas. In the hope that they are under control soon, I remain strong and want to share some inspiring news.

With Sale•A•Bration well under way and the release of the new Mini catalogue, what better time to start a new adventure with some of the awesome Art with Heart Team ladies.

Have you wanted to learn some new techniques, but don’t know where to begin? We have the answer for you!

We have created a series of written Tutorials, including instructions, measurements and full colour pictures, using current Stampin’ Up! products. These tutorial bundles are available free (for the month they become available) with any $50+ order from me or each bundle can be purchased for $15.

Rainbow Cake without the calories!

Reminder: today is the last day to purchase any last minute Holiday catalogue items as well as the Year End Clearance Close Out for retiring Holiday Catalogue items. The Clearance Rack also has some heavily reduced items, so check them out too!

Who doesn’t love cake?!!! Check out this amazing rainbow cake of glorious colour without the calories!!!

This white card fits into a DL business size envelope, so it is larger than the normal A5 card, but hey, it needed to be to fit all those layers of cake!

I took 7 colours of card stock and cut them into 1/2″ strips and glued them to a piece of scrap card, butting each one up against the other.  Then I cut off the overhanging pieces with scissors.

Once I had the right size, I then added some Snowfall Accents Puff Paint between each layer and used the Heat Tool to puff it up. How cool does it look, so realistic like icing oozing out!!!

Using the Leaf & Classic Label punches I was able to create the candles.

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Do you know someone who loves golf?

Wow, it’s almost the end of another decade 😲 Where has the year gone? Did it disappear as fast for you too?!!!

Tonight’s card is another sneak peek of the Country Club Suite – but this is a quick and easy one to recreate. Simply using a piece of the Country Club Designer Series Paper, cover the front of the card.

Masculine card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front

To make the collar, I used the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle dies, and placed it on an angle so the bottom section of the die is at the corner of the card and the centre. Once you have this piece cut, use it as a template to cut the other side exactly the same size. The centre piece with the buttons, I just used the same die cutting a couple of times to get a narrow piece. Glue this piece down before the collar. The buttons are the small golf ball dies in Whisper White card stock!

The gold clubs are die cut in Garden Green card stock.
