Blossoming Basket Bundle & Hello Stamparatus

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the new Level 2 items in the latest release Sale-a-bration brochure (see below). This is a bundle with any $180+ order that you can select for FREE. It is the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the coordinating Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder which are just stunning!

Blossoming Basket & Basket Weave TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia.

I am so excited, my Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) which will be available in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, arrived this week just in time to create this card.

Stamparatus

I was able to stamp the basket using the right side plate and then the sentiment, butterfly and the tag on the top plate, stamping all 3 images at once!!! How cool is that?!!!

The images were stamped with Archival Black ink onto Shimmery White card.  I used the blender pen with inkpads to colour the images, to allow for the required shading I wanted.

I loved how this card turned out, so I wanted to share it with my class ladies on Saturday. They were stunned with the Stamparatus and also loved this bundle. I allowed them to colour their image with whatever tones they liked. They chose Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder & Perfect Plum.  Which one is your favourite?

Blooms of Heartfelt Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sympathy card using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

It is never easy to create a sympathy card when you need one, but having some on hand makes the journey so much easier when it is required. So today, I have this quick and easy card for that very occasion.

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, Saleabration 2018.jpg

This card is 4¼” x 4¼” in Rich Razzleberry, layered with Whisper White.

Look at the detail in this stamp!!!! When I opened the stamp case, I took one look at this floral stamp and thought it was so flat and wouldn’t have very much detail, it even felt  flat and smooth to touch, but I was so glad to be proven wrong. Check it out!

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia Saleabration 2018

The images are stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink and then I coloured it lightly with my Watercolour Pencils. Oh and I adore the font in the sentiment, it is so pretty!

Farewell, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Sympathy for a beloved pet

Hello Friends,

My project today is with a touch of sadness for a teacher colleague who lost her beloved best friend during the recent school holidays 😦

This is the card I made for her, in the hope that it may bring some comfort and lasting memories of her loved, Becks (named after David Beckham)!

Sympathy card for a pet using Stampin Ups Bella & Friends, Flourishing Phrases by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

He was a little white fella, so I obviously had to use the Bella & Friends stamp set. I stamped the image in black ink and then used my blender pen with some smoky slate ink to add some highlighting. Of course I needed to add a red collar with the red heart with a touch of Wink of Stella on top!

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist, then White. The floral image is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist on the front and the inside panel is stamped off once before stamping on the card.

Thoughtful Branches, Beautiful Branches, Sympathy card #stampinup DIY @cardsbykate

This first one is a sympathy card that I made for a work colleague who lost her father last week following a short illness. I wanted to make it feminine but also added some Dapper Denim in memory of her dad!

How sweet is the little bird? I love that!

I decorated the inside of the card and the envelope to match!

This next card is amazingly using the same stamp set and just shows the versatility of this bundle. A Christmas card using the gorgeous Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler.

This card was looking a little plain and needed something else, so I added the twine bow to finish the card. It was just what it needed. I love this sentiment too!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Flourish with Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

You know those sad occasions when you need to send someone a sympathy card and you don’t have some already made? Well today I have made one for that very day when unfortunately we need one.

This card is white with Rich Razzleberry and what a stunner colour combination!

IMG_5814

I love all the textures in this card, from the Petal Burst embossed background, to the Flourish Framelit to the Pansy and Petite Petals flower.

I also added some of the new Copper Metallic thread behind the Pansy, not sure if you can see it, as it is so fine.

Blooms & Wishes

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card that could be used for many different occasions, as it is so veratile. You have to check out the designer paper too, it is my favourite in this annual catalogue!

Blooms & Wishes, Blooms & Bliss DSP, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by adding a piece of designer paper to the card base and cut a strip of Island Indigo to the same length. A piece of white card was cut slightly smaller and then I randomly stamped the floral images and the sentiment before gluing them all together.

Blooms & Bliss DSP, Blooms & Wishes, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade Feminine card, Stampin Up 2016

I added a strip of crumb cake which was punched with a retired border punch under the decorated strip. I punched the flowers in coordinating cardstock and added rhinestones. I love the watercolour look of these stamps!

Blooms & Bliss DSP, Blooms & Wishes, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I adore this Designer Series Paper, it is certainly my favourite pack in this new annual catalogue. Be sure to visit over the next few weeks as I share many more projects with these papers.

Sympathy Rose

Dear Crafters,

Last week I shared some cards using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits. Here is another Sympathy card using this same bundle, but yet this is very simple and elegant.

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, DIY, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

This White and Pool Party card doesn’t need to be anything fancy. It is simple, elegant and stylish. The image of white on white is beautiful and noting over rated.

The only colour is the sentiment and a glitter pool party bow ribbon.

Rose Wonder Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

This watercolouring technique is very easy and effective. The image is stamped with Veramark ink onto Watercolour paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then using an Aqua painter, coloured with inks.

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

Once dry, I fussy cut the image out and added it to the brick wall background with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I think it is lovely for a sympathy card.

Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Lovely as a Tree

Dear Crafters,

Today I focus on the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, as it is always a point of discussion when a new catalogue is made available to demonstrators!

I wasn’t able to attend the recent Stampin’ Up! event on the weekend and so I have no idea if this set has made it into the new annual catalogue or not.

Anyway, I am going to give it a plug anyway as it has been around for many years and is such a versatile stamp set for so many occasions, but today a masculine theme for some sympathy cards.

Here we go!

My colour scheme for this one is very monotone in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate!

and this next one is using Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke.

 

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card & envelope too!

I can’t wait to find out if this has made it into the new catalogue, but I guess I will find out tomorrow when, we as demonstrators, can view it online before everyone else!!!! I can’t wait to see what is new and what is retiring, one of the benefits of being a demonstrator, is finding out first!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy, Thinlits Dies

You’re in my thoughts

Dear Crafters,

It is always tough to come up with a card design for someone who may have lost a loved one, so I always like to have some on hand to be able to grab when required.

Today, I share a card using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits die.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

I have used Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, purple being the colour of love and I think it is lovely in this sympathy card.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

Notice I have glued the heart die cut behind the top layer, framing part of the heart but also so it gives that gorgeous shadow behind once the layer is adhered with dimensionals.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

Always remember to stamp the envelope and the inside of your cards!
