Masculine Thank You Card

Dear Crafters,

Are you like me and struggle with Masculine cards? Well, I have been on a bit of a roll lately with lots of requests for Masculine cards, and this Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is perfect to use!!!

I have obviously gone for the earthy tones and the Seasonal Layers thinlits are the perfect match, along with some of the burlap ribbon. The sentiment is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set as I wanted a fairly large image to stamp onto the Oval Stitched Shapes framelits die cut.

Designer Series Paper, Farewell, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Earthy tones for a Masculine card

Hello Friends,

My project today is a Masculine Farewell card using the Wood Textures Designer Paper, Painted Harvest stamp set and the Seasonal Layers thinlits.

I initially had the Lemon Lime Twist panel on the left plain, but then i decided to stamp those little acorns and I think it looks great. I also stamped one on the envelope!

The sentiment was printed using my computer, but look at that detail in the Wood Textures DSP?!!! It has so much detail and it looks so real! I love these detailed leaves too.

On the inside of the card I used some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and a small piece of the Wood Textures DSP.

Farewell, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Masculine Farewell using Wood Textures DSP & Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Hello Friends,

My project today features the gorgeous Wood Textures DSP and isn’t it stunning?!!

I was asked to make quite a few masculine farewell cards and this is a style that I struggle with immensely, but I actually love this. I saw a similar card by Jo Anne Hewins on Pinterest and went from there.

Watercolour Orchids

Hello Friends,

Today I share another card using the amazing, Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, and by purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

This card, I did something a bit backwards…. I die cut all the pieces first before colouring or stamping! Yes, I know it sounds a little weird but you will see why in a minute.

I love the softness of the watercolouring of these flowers. I used an Aquapainter to apply ink to each of the petals allowing each colour to dry before adding the next.  The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The centre is a little dark so I added some Wink of Stella to glimmer it up!

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but I think “hello” can be used for so many occasions, I went with that!

What do you think of this watercolour look? Will you give it a try???

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!

Heart of Christmas Card using Foxy Friends & Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I just love this little reindeer stamped in Crumb Cake and Glimmer Red nose! The Fox Builder Punch was used to punch out his little head to pop up on dimensionals.

The Wood Textures DSP is so amazing and it can be used for nearly any style card, including Christmas! Who would have thought?!!!

Those snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits are super cute and add the perfect embellishments to this card, along with the sentiment using the Classic Label Punch.
