Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share 4 cards that are quick and easy to create using the Picture Perfect Party 6×6 Designer Series Paper stack. For these 4 cards, I have only used 2 of the sheets of DSP. One side of these papers are photographic shots and they are so life-like!

This card uses Peekaboo Peach for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add two strips of the Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Berry Burst for the card base and the sentiment. Glue a 3″ strip of DSP across the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set onto the balloon. Add a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon and tie a bow!

This card uses Basic Black for the card base. Glue a piece of 3¾” x 5½” DSP to the centre of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Number of Years stamp set onto the 4″ x 1½” vellum in Berry Burst ink. Die cut the number 9 using the Large Numbers dies in Berry Burst card. Using a sponge dauber, apply a thin layer of Tombo Multipurpose glue. This is the only way to add vellum without the glue showing through! Add the 9 with mini dimensionals.

This card uses Lemon Lime Twist for the card base. Use a 2½” strip of DSP across the centre of the card, but add the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch out behind before gluing to the card. Add a piece of Berry Burt Metallic edged ribbon across the bottom of the DSP then tie a bow and glue it on! Die cut the numbers using the Large Numbers dies from Silver Glimmer card and add with mini dimensionals.

I cannot believe that the Number of Years stamp set and the coordinating dies are about to retire 😦 I use them all the time for kids birthday cards and if you too haven’t purchased them yet, make sure you add them to your shopping cart before they are gone!

Dream Catcher card using Mini Embroidery Hoops

Dear Crafters,

Well, I’m back from OnStage in Sydney and boy, what an exciting catalogue is coming our way in June! You are going to love it and there are so many awesome new products, I don’t know what will be at the top of my shopping list, I want it all 🙂

Today I have a card for a friend who loves Dream Catchers and I had a couple of these Embroidery Hoops that I bought because they were cute but I didn’t know how to use them! Have you done that? Bought something and then struggle to use it?

I know the doily and the baker’s twine have retired, but I need to start using up some of these products before they retire next time. I keep buying and storing product away for a special card, but I need to stop and use them now…. lol

I cut the doily down to fit the mini embroidery hoop, as it was much bigger and then I added strands of baker’s twine and one of the cute tassels from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (Occasions 2018 catalogue).

Heart of Happiness

Dear Crafters,

It’s getting exciting now, as many Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are heading away this week for the OnStage events around the country. I am heading to Sydney on Friday afternoon for Saturday’s event at Luna Park. We will be honoured to have Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up! at our event, so we are very lucky to have her host our event.

I won’t be able to share any of the fun until Tuesday 10th April when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but this event is where we get to see lots of new product that will be in the upcoming Annual catalogue. It is such an exciting time of year!

Today I share some more hearts from the Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You Bundle in the Occasions catalogue. Even though Sale-a-bration is over for another year, the Occasions catalogue still runs through to the end of May!

I love how these stamp sets coordinate and can be used for so many different things, not just Valentines Day. Today’s card can be used for a Birthday or a thank you…. with the sentiment, Just for you, it can be anything you want it to be.

I love this colour combination of Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Whisper White together. By just adding some simple layers, you can create a wonderful effect. The tiny hearts are stamped to create a more interesting background.

and that Decorative Ribbon Border Punch adds extra interest.

I have used Basic Black as my card base for a striking effect. Using coordinating colour card as a square behind the DSP brings the colours all together. along with the stunning ribbons, tied with a bow.

Heart Happiness meets Springtime Foils

Dear Crafters,

Today is all about hearts, with the Heart Happiness stamp set, the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and the Springtime Foils DSP!

I have used Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White as my colour combination.

Heart Happiness with Springtime Foils, Occasions 2018 Saleabration Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I coloured the Springtime Foils DSP with the Powder Pink ink pad, swiping it across the paper to add the colour quickly. I cut it down to the required size and placed it on the bottom section of the white card. I stamped the small hearts with Powder Pink ink to the top half. I added some ribbon and a double bow, before gluing it to the front of the card.

All the hearts were stamped and die cut and then added across the centre of the card with dimensionals.

I added some basic pearl jewels for some added bling!

The inside of the card was also decorated with another heart at the top and a slice of the coloured Springtime Foils DSP at the bottom.

Sweet scene on the Waterfront

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the Waterfront Stamp set in the Occasions catalogue 2018. I don’t actually have this set, but a few team members got together recently and we love to share stamps sets on the day, that we may not own ourselves. It’s a great way for team bonding and getting to try sets we may not appreciate until you have a go!

Naturally, I opened it up and wondered where to start, so I turned to the iPad and Pinterest and I was inspired by Sarah Fleming from the USA. Thank you Sarah!

Congratulations Petal Palette in Copper & Marble

Dear Crafters,

Wow, is it really the last day of February? Where did those 2 months go???

Today I share a Congratulations card using the Petal Palette Bundle & the Marbled background stamp.

Last Wednesday I shared a card using this same technique, you can see it here; however, this one uses darker colours. I’ve used Bermuda Bay instead of Pool Party, for a richer colour. I also used Copper instead of gold!

Marbled meets Petal Palette Stampin Up Occasions 2018 by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia.jpg

I love the richness of the copper embossing powder and the leaves die cut in the copper foil add some extra shine to the card. The bird is stamped in Perfect Plum ink on coordinating card and die cut. The same with the sentiment on Bermuda Bay card.
