Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

No matter who we are, we are all the same on the inside!

Today’s card is a small token (with a big bunch of bright pink gerbera flowers) of thanks for a dear friend of mine who has been so supportive of me in my fight with MS. She’s wanted to support and help me in easing the pressure of learning to drive again (using hand controls) to regain some independence. She setup a Go Fund Me page and  I cannot thank everyone enough with how generous they have been. Yesterday I had another driving lesson which took us through busy Dandenong, learning to park and drive through unpredictable and unknown areas. I am so determined to do this and with Lisa’s help it is feeling closer than ever. Thank you xxx

Here is the card I made her using the Artfully Aware stamp set from pg46 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This is the perfect stamp set, don’t you think?!

I stamped the ribbon image multiple times in the background in Petal Pink and used the Wink of Stella to colour each one (the photo doesn’t do it justice).

The image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

How good does the layering of the different punched pieces look? I also dry embossed them with different embossing folders for extra texture. The embellishment of the ladies wrist is a retired Glitter Epoxy Shape, but I thought is was cute.

You know friends really are so supportive and being International Women’s Day, it was the absolute perfect time to share this.

Masculine Thank You with the Nature’s Poem Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a couple of cards using the new Nature’s Poem Suite; Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits, Nature’s Poem DSP. I am so excited this stamp set has coordinating framelits to cut out the images. No more fussy cutting!

I love how the background piece of DSP brings so much dimension to a card. I stamped some of the leaves on it with Crumb Cake ink and wow, it brings it to life.

The tree image is stamped in Shaded Spruce, a new colour arriving on 1 June. This particular image is stamped off once, but you will see the full strength image in my next card (no wasting from me!!!). I love the large banner behind with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing on it. A piece of vellum, sponged with ink gives an antique look and is punched with the Starburst punch.

This card uses a darker piece of Designer Series Paper from the Nature’s Poem pack. With the full strength tree image, I felt it needed a darker base. I added a thin banner of Shaded Spruce card behind the larger banner.

Thank You, Petal Palette

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a thank you card using the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP). The stamp set and coordinating dies are carrying over into the new annual catalogue, however, they will be single items and not sold as a bundle, so if you want to save 10%, add it to your order now!

This DSP is not carrying over, so if you want it, get it now! The designs are black and white, but you will see how adding a bit of colour changes everything!

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

This is coloured using the Stampin’ Blends before gluing it to the centre of the card. I then added two strips of the Rich Razzleberry washi tape to either side and then a thin gold strip of washi tape over the join.

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and the two flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink (stamped off once) for a lighter shade. Notice the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon? Yes, that is new and will be available in the annual catalogue. It is so luscious and it was the perfect accent for this card. The 2″ circle punch was used to punch out the sentiment and added with dimensionals.

The Petal Palette Bundle is carrying over as individual items, so I would advise you to get it now as a bundle and save the extra 10%.

I added a couple of small basic pearls to the centre of the flowers in the circle.

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!!!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP, Painted Harvest & Seasonal Layers thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DI

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.

Team Tulips

Dear Crafters,

On Saturday morning it was my eldest daughters last game of netball for the season.  Yes, no more early mornings out in the cold for at least a month until next season starts!

Their coach Sharon, was fantastic with each and every one of them, mentoring them to new heights. So as a thank you, I made this card on behalf of the team to give to her along with a beautiful bunch of flowers.

Pop of Pink, Love is Kindness, Tulips Handmade card #stampinup @cardsbykate

I chose this retired stamp because the team were called the “Tulips” and I felt it as appropriate for the occasion.

I love this Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series paper. I added some Wink of Stella onto the tulips. Not sure if you can see it in the photo?

Bright Florals

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the brand new Detailed Floral thinlits dies, another of my must have on my first annual catalogue order!

Detailed Floral Thinlits, 2016-2018 In Colour Markers, Floral Phrases, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by die cutting the black card with the thinlits and glued them to the top and bottom of the card, then stamped the sentiment and added the enamel dot.

Using the new 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, I coloured all the flowers and leaves. Because the borders of the thinlits are black, it doesn’t matter how well you colour in as it doesn’t show on the black card!

Colouring with Blender Pens

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a pretty card created with the stamp set, You’ve Got This.

You've Got This #stampinup Blender pen flower

I stamped the image on watercolour paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.

I coloured the image using the Blender pens with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink pads. I started by colouring all the petals and then going back over the bottom part of each petal and making it darker! Isn’t it pretty?!!!

You've Got This #stampinup Blender pen flower

I layered the watercolour paper onto a piece of vellum, then Blushing Bride card stock then onto the base card of Pear Pizzazz. I added the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink and 2 candy dots.

You've Got This #stampinup Blender pen flower

Don’t you just love how this coordinates with the envelope by stamping the flower image again?!
