Carousel Birthday Spinner Card with Glimmer

Dear Crafters,

Today I sharing a sneak peek of 1 of the 3 new Sale-a-bration items that will be available from tomorrow!

I just adore this Carousel Birthday suite with the coordinating Designer Series paper. The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiment stamp set, and is such a fun font for this card.

I love this ferris wheel, but I felt that it needed to be spinning around, so I used the Layering Circle Framelits to die cut the wheel and make it into a spinner card using a brad in the centre.

This set also coordinates with the Up & Away Thinlits, so I was able to die cut the glimmer paper easily. In the glimmer paper pack, you get 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ in 3 colours; Bermud Bay, Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron.

Popping Box Card

Dear Crafters,

Recently I saw an amazing Tutorial by Gemma Clarke, a UK Demonstrator, who made this awesome popping box card and I have been wanting to make it ever since! She also has a link to her YouTube videos in two parts on her blog.

I have used the stunning Lift Me Up Bundle from the Occasions catalogue. I just love the brightness of the colours in these papers.

As you can see, it is a long box that is decorated with the Carried Away DSP.

Pull the ribbon tab and out pops this box!!! Amazing, right?!!!

But the thing is, this popping box folds flat to fit inside the long box. It has a rubber band mechanism to make it pop!  If you want to see a short video of it opening click here, for the link on my Facebook page.

I also decorated the inside of the box.

On each of the 4 sides I decorated the popping box with stamps, DSP and die cuts.

Birthday, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Carousel Birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another gorgeous suite from the Occasions 2017 catalogue, Cupcakes and Carousels. 

carousel-birthday-card-using-stampin-ups-carousel-birthday-and-cupcakes-carousels-dsp-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwith

I love how simple this card is with just stamping directly onto the Designer Series paper, but then adding a little dimension with the cupcake tops!

Begin by stamping all the images in Black ink. Then stamp the carousel again with versamark ink onto whisper white card and adding copper embossing powder and heat setting it. This set coordinates with the Up & Away thinlits, which were used to die cut the cupcake icing. Add each one with 1/2 a dimensional.

Memory Keeping/Project Life/Scrapbooking, Stampin' Up!

Falling in Love, 12″x 12″

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a 12″ x 12″ traditional scrapbooking layout using some brand new product which will be available in the Occasions 2017 catalogue! But if you can’t wait to get your hands on these stunning new products, why not join my team and you can pre-order these items in December (a whole month before anyone else)!!

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event for demonstrators. We had a ball and so I had to scrapbook a couple of photos from our time away. It was Kim’s first Stampin’ Up! event and she was totally stunned with the amount of product we received as well as the information shared and new friendships made. We certainly have many memories to giggle about, especially with Bev’s multiple mishaps, from forgetting her boarding pass for the plane, finding out she wasn’t registered when we arrived and losing her sunnies on the last day. She certainly kept us entertained!!!

We would also like to thank Judy (far right) for being our room mate for a few days.

These new designer series papers are called Falling in Love and yes, my favourite Blushing Bride colour makes its appearance. I think they made these papers for me!

The font was printed using my computer using Blushing Bride onto Very Vanilla card!

And the new Very Vanilla ribbon is just beautiful, especially teamed with the Very Vanilla Lace Trim we currently have in the Annual catalogue.
