Hippest Hippo U Fold Window card

Today’s fancy fold card is a ‘U Fold Window’ style card using the Sale•a•bration items, Hippest Hippo stamp set (#159921), Hippo dies (#159928) and Silver & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159941). Each of these items can be earned free with any $90+ product order. Select all 3 items with a $270 product order during Sale•a•bration (now through to 31 August 2022)!

I adore the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and this particular piece reminded me of those beautiful curtains at the theatre! I also added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card at the top opening of the window (Basic Borders dies).

Thick Basic White Card Base: 19.5cm x 10.5cm; score at 2.5cm & 5cm from each end.
Thick Basic White Card Front: 14.5cm x 10.5cm Adhere the DSP before cutting the window (the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes dies). The card base scorelines need to be folded as mountain fold then valley fold from each end. This creates the U shape. The card front piece is then glued to the top. Start by gluing one side, then fold the card flat to glue the other side, making sure the edges meet.

The Silver & Gold Specialty DSP was cut for the interior with a small piece of the wood grain paper (retired In Good Taste DSP) at the bottom acting as the stage floor for my little ballerina.

Memento Black ink was used to stamp the hippo image and she’s coloured using the Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Gray Granite, Melon Mambo, 900/1000 Light Combo.

The hippo is raised with a small strip of window sheet folded into a square and mounted behind. This allows for her to appear in mid-air, and so the card can fold to the right so it folds flat to fit in a standard C6 envelope!

The sentiment is white heat embossed onto a label die cut with one of the Fabulous Frames dies.

Week 10 – Blushing Bride

Tonight I have a feminine floral card using the Wonderful World DSP (part of the Saleabration Free item with a qualifying order). The Basic White layer is die cut with the Split Textures die and a piece of the DSP placed behind it. Some Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow on the front. This is glued to the Blushing Bride card base. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut the floral arrangement from a piece of the patterned paper and add it with dimensionals.

Cut it out with the coordinating, Sentiment Silhouettes dies and add with Mini Dimensionals. Finish off with some Iridescent Rhinestones Jewels.

On the inside I repeated the process with the DSP and Split Textures dies and added a single bloom that was fussy cut with Paper Snips from the designer papers. Isn’t it pretty?!!

Week 39 – Real Red

Tonight’s card features the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set & Penned Flowers dies) from the Annual catalogue.  I stamped this image four times (3 for the front and 1 inside) in Memento Black ink and coloured them using Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs (Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Just Jade).

My card base is Thick Basic White with a smaller layer dry embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I added a small strip of the All Together 6″x6″ DSP, and die cut the bottom with the scallop border die from the Penned Flowers dies.

Flowering Tulips

Today I have the pretty Tulip Fields Bundle [Tulip Fields stamp set & Windmill Fields dies]. Purchase this bundle and you can select an item for FREE during Saleabration!

As soon as I saw this bundle, I knew I had to have it. It reminds me of our day trips to Tesselaar Tulip Festival in Silvan.

My card base is Mint Macaron with some Basic White cloud die cuts. The tulips layers are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather with dimensionals between the layers for depth.

The windmill is cut from the Cork specialty paper for the base and then Soft Suede card for the top layer and the blades. The blades are attached with a brass brad so they can spin!

On the inside, I added a white insert with a simple sentiment (Flowering Tulips stamp set) and some more of the same colour smaller tulip border dies. The sentiment on the front is from the Flowering Tulips set also and cut with the Dual Oval Punch.

Tulip Fields Birthday card

Today I have a gorgeous field of tulips on my card that I think will be extremely popular when the new January – June Mini catalogue becomes available on 4 January! During the first couple of months, Saleabration will also begin where you can earn FREE items with any $90+ product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

How amazing is this field of tulips card?!!! The clouds are actually some of the Simply Marbleous DSP that is one of the free items you can choose during Saleabration. If you purchase the Tulip Fields Bundle and the Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments, you can get this DSP FREE!

The rows of tulips are stamped in Pale Papaya, Fresh Freshia and Polished Pink and cut with my Trimmer. I glued these to some Crumb Cake card and then cut it down to 7cm x 13.5cm to fit on the card front (10.5cm x 27cm, scored at 13.5cm), leaving a small gap at the bottom to create the illusion of a bike path.

Tulip Fields birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is actually from another new set which is part of the Flowering Fields Suite, called Flowering Tulips. The full sentiment is stamped on the inside of the card, which you can see below, but I wanted to say happy birthday on the front, rather than happier birthday, so I carefully inked up the first part of the sentiment to happ and stamped it onto white card. Then I cleaned the stamp well with my Simply Shammy and inked up the ‘y’ only from the word birthday and because they are clear photopolymer stamps, I could see through it to place it closely to the happ to create happy!!! Once I stamped the full image again, I fussy cut each word with paper snips, before adding with dimensionals to the card.

The fence and bike are die cut from Early Espresso card and adhered with Multipurpose Glue. How pretty are those Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments which are self-adhesive to make them even easier to use!

This is the inside of the card where the full sentiment is stamped and the windmill and trees are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

Otterly Awesome

Today I want to share one of the cutest stamp sets that will be availableto earn for FREE from 4th January 2022 during Saleabration with a $90 product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

Awesome Otters is a cling set of 6 stamps; 4 images and 2 sentiments. I have also used another SAB item in the patterned paper, Simply Marbellous 6″ x 6″ DSP. It was perfect for the water effect I wanted on this card!

Awesome Otters card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The Picture This die was used to die cut the circles. I sat it over the white base card to work out where to stamp the otters. Once I had stamped and coloured them (Watercolor Pencils & Blender Pen), I glued the DSP to the card front. The smaller circles I replaced but on a dimensional rather than gluing.

Aren’t they otterly adorable?!!!

Awesome Otters feature card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

On the inside, I stamped and coloured another adorable otter and placed a strip of DSP down one side.
