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.

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.

The Heart of Christmas: Quilted Christmas

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 24 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is a quick and easy card using the Quilted Christmas DSP. Where, you say? Look at those 3 little Christmas trees. They are cut from the Designer paper!

The background is embossed using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. A doily is added, then the oval stitched framelit in whisper white. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, from the At Home with You stamp set (oops, forgot the add that to the product list at the bottom of this post)!

A small piece of the Red Ribbon was attached behind each tree before adding each one to the stitched oval with a dimensional. A rhinestone was added to the top of each tree!

Check out the new Dynamic Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Isn’t it stunning! What do you think?

The Powder Pink ribbon is so pretty and I have matched it with the flowers; Berry Burst and Powder Pink. I just love these tones combined with Tranquil Tide.

This is my own design and I still haven’t seen a lot of projects with this bundle, so it’s been fun creating with it. What do you think of my card?

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Foxy Friends & Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with the Wood Textures DSP!

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.

feminine, Flowers, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

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!

final (Edited).jpg

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!

Pretty Kitty by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia Glimmer

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!!!

Pretty Kitty by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

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!
