Interlocking Gatefold cards using different designer papers for different looks!

Hello Crafters,

These are some of the cards we made during my class last Thursday. The first card uses the Petal Promenade DSP, it is stunning! This creates a very soft and feminine card with the Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride colour palette.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls coordinate so well with these papers and the Share What You Love stamp set. The flower images are coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella for added shine. This sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. Wouldn’t this be the perfect wedding card?

The next card is using the Garden Impressions DSP; making a bright and bold Interlocking card.

This is such a fun card to make and I love how different DSPs can make the same style card, look so different.

Tissue Box cover with Share What You Love SDSP

Dear Crafters,

Sniff sniff, I’m back to work today after 2 weeks of holidays at home, so lucky I have a beautiful tissue box to make things better!

Today I share a tissue box cover that I created using a 12″ x 12″ piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. You are probably going to ask me for the measurements, but to be honest, I just measured around a tissue box to get a rough guide; so approximately 3-7/8″, 8-1/8″ and then rotate 90º and score at 1-3/4″ from either end. The ends, once you cut the tabs to create the box, do not make it all the way down the box, so I just covered both ends with a larger piece of DSP and you wouldn’t even know!

I wasn’t really happy with the top where the tissues come through the box, so I added some strips of scallop edging to the underside!

This fits really snug over the tissue box and it is open at the bottom for easy access.

WARNING: I found mine in the recycle bin last night, as hubby used the last tissue and threw it away, so ensure you tell ALL the family members that you have created a masterpiece and not to throw it in the bin… be warned!!! LOL

Pretty Petal Promenade with an Interlocking Gatefold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP. Have you seen these papers? They are actually just like a photo, which is how Stampin’ Up! created them!

I love the softness of the petals and the colouring of these roses, but I also think it may be overpowering as a full layer on a card. So I have cut it into 2 panels to adhere to the front of the card in this fancy fold style.

Petal Promenade DSP with Share What You Love by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.

It is a gatefold card, but when you open it, the oval layers interlock!

I saw Dawn Griffiths make one of these, but of course I needed to alter the paper sizes for A4, rather than US sizing, so went back to my trusty file to find a gatefold card that I had made many years ago and adapted it.

Here it is open. I have stamped the image again and coloured the petals with the Wink of Stella, the same as the front!

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.

Yay, it’s new catalogue time!

Dear Crafters,

Yay, it’s finally the day I can share with you, the amazing 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue! Click the image to download your PDF copy now!

Look what I’ve done to mine ~ added a few tabs so I can find the section I want quickly and easily to save me time. These are created with the Circle Tab punch and a computer to print the file!

2018-2019 Annual Stampin Up Catalogue tabs.JPG

With all the excitement of the new catalogue, today I want to share some cards with a handy tip on using the new Pearl Doilies.

This card below looks like it uses a doily behind the circle sentiment, doesn’t it?!!

Share What You Love & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Well, it does, but I have actually cut out the centre of it before adding the sentiment to the card, because it would be a waste to actually use the entire doily and cover most of it up, right?

Share What You Love DSP & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out this card! Yes, it is that inside part of the doily above, so we were able to get 2 cards from the one doily!!!

Now, I also promised to share how I made this sentiment with the Make a Difference stamp set and the Stamparatus. Click here for the written tutorial!

Share What You Love SDSP Gift Box with card hanger

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project that I saw Rhonda Wade create on her FB page and I immediately fell in love with it. It uses 2 sheets of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and that gets you the box and the card!

With this Specialty DSP being so thick, it makes this box super sturdy and so big, that you could fit so much into it; a beautiful scarf, clothing, 2 bottles of wine, whatever you really like!

And how cool it is to have that card hanger on the front to hang your coordinating card!

I also used the Make a Difference Stamp set with the Stamparatus for the sentiment and I will show you how that was made in a separate post on Friday!

The inside of the card looks like this! I love both sides of this DSP that you don’t want to hide it by gluing it to the front of a card base, so folding it in half and adding a piece of A6 cardstock to the back as the base, you get to see both sides!

On Saturday, I spent the day in the city at our Art With Heart Team Day!

It was a fantastic event for our wider team with 45 ladies attending, including Clare Langsford, Demonstrator Development Manager for Stampin’ Up!

It was just like a mini OnStage event!

We even had our own Instagram board for photos ♥
