Pretty Kitty Fancy Fold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a fancy fold card using the Pretty Kitty stamp set, Tea Room Specialty Designer paper and Watercolour Pencils!

From 1 August, a new 10 pack of Watercolour Pencils will be available in the following colours: Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy. These can be used by themselves or with our Blender Pens or Aqua Painter.

I made this card for my eldest daughter who turns 12 today. She loves cats (we have 2) and she loves butterflies, so this was perfect for her.

The front piece of cardstock is embossed with the new Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.

This card opens up so you can see the gorgeous Tea Room Specialty Designer paper with the kitty image. This is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils and then I used a Blender Pen to add some shading. This image is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added with dimensionals to a piece of Rich Razzleberry Layering Ovals Scallop die which is glued down to the DSP. Open this flap to reveal another layer for your message.

When fully open, you have this Whisper White piece with the sentiment stamped (Happy Birthday Gorgeous) in the centre where you can write your message.

Pretty Kitty

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more of the cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are all of the images I coloured!

I stamped the images with Stazon Black ink onto Watercolour paper and used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Again, I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

This next one I added small strips of gold glimmer paper to the top and bottom edge of the red polka dot paper!

I adore these paper doilies and this one below, I covered up the centre of it, so before I glued it down, I cut out the centre of the doilie and that is what is forms the shape of the one to the right. No point covering the whole thing up, may as well use what I can!!!

Not one of these cards has a sentiment, did you notice that?!!! You don’t always need to add a sentiment to a card, sometimes you just want the images to be the focus.

I was very pleased with my watercolouring efforts, especially while sitting in a chair colouring on my lap!

Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Bella & Friends

Dear Crafters,

Well I can tell you that I placed my pre-order for brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue product yesterday!!! You can do this too, but only if you are a demonstrator or join today so you can get product earlier. Ask me how!

So here are the new 2017-2019 In Colours. Which one is your favourite?

2017-2019 In Colours by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I have some cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are the first two I started with from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, which I will show you shortly.

Watercolouring images of Pretty Kitty

I used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Isn’t this image just the cutest? I love the sentiment ‘You’ve got a friend in me’.

I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

This next one is using Marina Mist and the clouds and sentiments are from the Life Me Up stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It coordinates so well with this puppy floating away tied to a balloon!

and the last one for today is using some of the new copper trim that is a new product available from 1st June. It can be used like ribbon or it can be opened up to look a bit like a mesh bag or netting. I thought it looked a bit like the puppy had chewed it!!! lol

These cards could be used for any occasion, so I tend to leave off sentiments and add them later if I want them for a specific event.

What do you think about these cute cards?

Birthday, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Happy 7th Birthday to my baby girl!

Dear Crafters,

Today we celebrate my baby girl’s birthday as she turns 7. Even better, they have a curriculum day at school, so a day at home to celebrate with a party with her school friends this afternoon!

I don’t know where those years have gone as she is growing up so fast. All she wanted for her birthday was a ginger kitten so guess what? Yes, she got her ginger kitten for her birthday! He was a very scared kitty when we first met him and he reminded us of Puss in Boots from the movie Shrek… you know that cute scared face! Well, this little kitty is now called BOOTS!

Anyway, he is slowly settling in now. The card I want to share with you today is also for the birthday girl and I had to make a card with the new Pretty Kitty stamp set!!!

Pretty Kitty & Little Numbers, Handmade Birthday Card 7 Copic, Ovals Framelits  #stampinup DIY @CardsbyKate

I coloured the image with Copic markers and yes, it had to be ginger.

I just love this stamp set and the new Oval Framelits are perfect to layer the image onto the card.
