So in love with Peter Rabbit of Fable Friends

Today, I have one of the cutest stamp sets in the new Occasions catalogue, Fable Friends. It has Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle duck images and these absolutely take me back to my childhood. My Nanna (who passed away in 1980) even cross-stitched both of these for my sister and myself when we were young children. I still have it and it’s so precious to me, so when I saw this in the catalogue it was straight on my list!

Fable Friends & Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

My card base is Balmy Blue, embossed using the new Lace Dynamic TIEF. The So Saffron circle is die cut using the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and the leaves are from the same set, cut in Soft Sea Foam. The flower is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set which coordinates with these framelits.

Peter Rabbit is stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut him so he sat on top of the yellow die cut. I added a couple of little pearl embellishments for his buttons.

The Organdy Balmy Blue ribbon can be earned for FREE with any $90 order and it comes with 4 other coloured rolls of ribbon in the one pack!!! Great value freebie!

Paper Loop Decorations

Today, I have some cute Paper Loop Decorations that I have made with some retired Stampin’ Up! products, but I have a link below for our current DSPs that will only be available until 2 January, so get in quick.

They are so pretty and more flower-like than many other tutorials out there, which are mainly snowflakes shapes.  I made these for my close friends who catch up most Fridays for coffee!

A sugar hit for Boxing Day!

What a busy Christmas Day we had with all the family and extended family coming to our house to celebrate. I love seeing all the kids, cousins and our newest member, Conor who is 5 weeks old, join us! It is a time for no one being excluded and I love that everyone came who we had invited. The relaxed atmosphere and everyone helping themselves and feeling comfortable, made my day.

I can now share with you a couple of the kids gifts for my nieces and nephews. As they are getting older and they have everything they need, I find it difficult to buy for them, so we give them each a gift card. But this year, I wanted to make it a bit different to the usual gift card holder or just putting it in an envelope with a card, so I found these glass jars, placed the gift card inside and filled them up with lollies. I mean, what kid doesn’t love some extra sugar on Christmas Day, right?!!!

To decorate the tops, I tied some ribbon around each one and added a monogram of their name (luckily they are all different initials) in glimmer paper, with a starburst punch of Christmas DSP and a circle die cut of coordinating card. How beautiful do they look?

Oh deer, Vanilla & Gold!

Today, is the last day of school for 2018 for my girls and the final day of primary school for my eldest daughter :0  It has been a big week, with her Graduation night on Tuesday evening and half day of school today to end the year.

Anyway, I have another Christmas card for you before my in-laws arrive tomorrow for the start of our Christmas celebrations. This one is simply some DSP, Gold Foil and the Detailed Deer die cut.

All is Bright DSP & Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Australia. Christmas 2018.JPG

The sentiment is stamped on strips of card with Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder applied and set with the heat tool. Then I cut the words up and added with dimensionals. These are quite simple and you could mass produce them with not too much trouble.

It’s almost Christmas & no time for fancy cards now!

With less than a week until Christmas today, I needed some quick last minute, easy designs for my Christmas cards.

This one uses a piece of the Joyous Noel DSP placed on the card base with some of the stunning Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon tied around it in a bow to look like a present. Such a simple but effective design.

The Merry Christmas to All stamp set has the erfect sentiments, stamped in Merry Merlot ink and another strip of the DSP is added inside with a strip of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. Doesn’t it tie the card together perfectly?!

Under the Mistletoe this Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card that is so easy to create. It’s just cutting some strips of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and gluing them to the front of the card.

Under the Mistletoe DSP Stampin Up Christmas 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the sentiments in Shaded Spruce using the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and used the coordinating framelits to cut it out and sponged around the edges, before adding it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I also used the 1/2″ circle punch to take a tiny bit from the centre spine of the card to thread through some red ribbon and tie it in a bow at the front. I added some Sprigs of Mistletoe punched from some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper pack for some added sparkle!

Christmas made easy with DSP!

Today, I am sharing a couple of very quick and easy Christmas cards using predominantly Designer Series Paper!

Both of these are using the Santa’s Workshop DSP, a really cute stack of papers and if you look closely, you can see that some of it has flocking on it. The white of that striped background, has a velvety feel to it, as does the apron, and hat trims of those little elves!!!

These cards use Garden Green card bases with layers of Designer paper. Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping on these cards?! The words are die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

Card making does not have to only be for the avid crafter, and I hope by sharing these quick and easy cards, you too can be inspired to create your own cards this Christmas!

Quick card using Delightful Daisy DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick card using up some Designer Series Paper that will be retiring at the end of the month. This is the Delightful Daisy DSP!

Delightful Daisy DSP Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

This particular pattern is very bright and bold, but it looks great cut into a large rectangle, mounted with a white border along 2 sides and placed in one corner leaving the Old Olive card base to show. A white banner is added with the sentiment (from Petal Palette) stamped in Old Olive ink. A ribbon bow is added to finish it off!

I was asked to make quite a few cards for my workplace and what better way to use up some DSP!

Peace on Earth

Dear Crafters,

Whoa, can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas?!!!!

On Monday I shared some quick and easy Christmas cards, and this is another one using similar products, but instead I’m using the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Some glimmer paper is added a a banner behind the sentiment for some Christmas sparkle and the enamel embellishments are actually left over from last years catalogue, but are the perfect accents.

The inside of the card is stamped with the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set. A strip of Silver glimmer paper is added at the bottom.
