So, as you can see, there is whole range in this suite of stunning coordinating products to make it easier to create the projects you dream of!

I haven’t used all of the above products in today’s card, but I will use more of them over the coming weeks as I make loads more with this stunning suite.

My chosen colour palette today is using Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive and Pink Pirouette. The floral image is coloured with Stampin’ Blends and it has the coordinating die to cut them out! Don’t be like me and start fussy cutting it out before you realise there is a coordinating die 😉

Hip Hip Hooray for this cute little bunny!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Sweet Little Something stamp set again but in blues! You may remember last week I did one in pinks. You can see it again here!

I stamped the bunny with the same colours; Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Crumb Cake stamped off! This is my favourite neutral colour combination for this rabbit.

Sweet Little Something, Scattered Sequins TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia #Occasions2018

The Scattered Sequins Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates the perfect background texture for this fluffy little bunny with his gingham ribbon bow.

You may or may not notice that the Lots of Labels Framelits dies look a little shorter? Well, I wanted it to frame the bunny a bit closer, so once I stamped him, I lined up the framelit in the big shot closer to his head and cut. I then moved the diecut in the same die closer to his feet and ran it though the big shot again just at that end, not all the way through. I then did the same with the Night of Navy matt piece behind!

The sentiment was stamped and cut out but it was the same colour as the background, so I used my sponge dauber and sponged the edges and it makes all the difference, as well as raising it up on dimensionals!

Bubble Over with a Birthday Brew

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a masculine card using the new Bubble Over Bundle. I love that we have a new masculine set available to us!

Check out that Designer Series Paper too. It’s called Bubbles & Fizz DSP and it is one of the FREE items you can choose with any $90 order during Sale-a-bration. I love that we can add this to our order and that it coordinates with a bundle.

And those Glitter & Clear Epoxy shapes are the perfect embellishment to finish off the coolness of these drinks. After the heat wave of over 40°C in Melbourne over the past few days, I sure could have done with some of these lol

The bottle caps are die cut in silver foil, which gives a realistic look to the tops. To see more on this bundle check out this short video.

Let the Good Times Roll

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a card that took a little while to create and understand how it actually worked when putting it together. When you see it, you will be amazed, but I have to admit there was some frustration at the beginning!

I’m using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue.

I started with an A5 piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock = 8¼” x 5⅞” folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Firstly, I will share with you the inside of the card before the front, and you will see why in a second. This is the most amazing 3D pop up card you will have seen in a while!

Let the Good Times Roll Feminine inside

What kid would not 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. I have lots of colours as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Here is the front of the card:

Let the Good Times Roll Feminine

Now a few tips I have 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!

When you spend $90+ during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose 1 free item from the Sale-a-bration brochure below. Go on, have a look, you know you want to!!!

Birthday, Celebrate, feminine, Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Celebrate the New Year with colour!

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2018 brings you much joy, love, health and happiness.

Today’s card is a fun card to celebrate the New Year, with some Birthday Ribbon bows, using the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 2 days time!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I have used some pretty bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This is a photopolymer stamp set, so it is quite easy to line up the two-step stamping for the bows. Check out those gorgeous Tutti-fruitti Adhesive-backed Sequins too, they will also be available and I’m sure they will be a huge hit when the catalogue goes live. These were one of the first embellishments I added to my order.

The fringing on the edges of the panel where the sentiment is, was created by many little paper snips along the edges of the Flirty Flamingo paper. Doesn’t it look cool?!!!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

Don’t look too closely at the Old Olive stamping… I recently reinked my stamp pad and it was a little too juicy!!!

The “celebrate” sentiment was only part of a stamp in the set, so I actually used a Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just that one word before stamping!

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.

You can see I have used the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders above in the background, as well as the stamp set and the thinlits dies. There are also some lovely sentiments in this stamp set, so you won’t be disappointed.

On the inside of the card, I just placed some of the smaller die cuts in the corner.
