Window pop up card with Painted Seasons

Tonight I have this pretty Lemon Lime Twist card created with the Painted Seasons Bundle. The paper is so beautiful with all the succulents. I created the window in the front using the 1 3/4″ circle punch and then framed it with Powder Pink scallop circle, die cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.

Lemon Lime Twist card: 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half.
Powder Pink Layer: 10cm x 14.3cm
DSP Layer: 9.5cm x 13.8cm

The succulent flower is inked with Lemon Lime Twist and then I used the Flirty Flamingo and Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Markers to add some detail to the stamp before stamping it onto the white card. The one on the inside left of the card was initially stamped with Pool Party ink and the same markers to add the detail. The sentiment is die cut 3 times and layered together slightly offsetting each one, then adding some Wink of Stella on top!

When you open the card it has this fancy fold inside!

The inside panel is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 3/4″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″. I added a strip of DSP down the right side and stamped the leaves and added the succulent so it appears through the circle window on the front.

Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 In Colours

I adore the Fable Friends stamp set and just had to use it for my Easter projects. This card is created using the paper piecing technique. This is where you stamp onto some pretty designer paper and then cut sections of it out and glue to another stamped image. You can see I’ve done it with the ducks jacket and top of her hat! I used the pretty Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I love the Rectangle stitched framelits and the Silver Glimmer edging was cut with the Decorative Border Punch. The sentiment is created using the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written framelits (purchase these together as the bundle to save 10%).

Here’s a closer look!  I used my Blender Pen with the inkpads to add some Gray Granite to her feathers, Pineapple Punch for her beak and feet and Powder Pink for the hat and ribbon around her neck. The grass is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist and then I sponged some of the same colour using a sponge dauber. I also did this for the sky with Balmy Blue ink.

My next project is a Divided Gift Box with 3 sections in it and a window in the top to entice you inside!  The tag was simply created using the Well Said bundle as used in the first project. I had to tie some of this gorgeous variegated ribbon around it too.

Country Floral Dynamic TIEF coloured with Blends Saleabration 2019 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.JPG

Once you emboss the white layer with the embossing folder through the Big Shot, use the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the raised flowers.

Adhere all the layers together and add the punched pieces. The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set and I sponged the edges of the circle with a sponge dauber in the same Petal Pink ink. This circle is adhered with a dimensional. The bow is added and two pearls coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends marker.

Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Painted Seasons for a special birthday

On Sunday it was my mother-in-law, Bev’s birthday and this was the card we sent her. She lives 6 hours drive away from us, so we don’t get to visit them often, but we are very close. Bev is even a team member and we are going to Auckland together next month for OnStage Live event… the biggest Stampin’ Up! event of the year, and we cannot wait!!!

Painted Seasons Feminine birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.JPG

These distinctive stamps make creating so easy. These flowers look so real and they are only stamped in one colour and one impression!!! What a great background it makes, and doesn’t it look like designer paper?!!!

Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam are a delightful colour combination, don’t you think? I adore it together.

Bev lives 6 hours drive away from us and so I thought this was the perfect sentiment for the inside of the card xx

My 2nd card has a softer, feminine look. I have used Soft Sea Foam, Powder Pink, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. The coordinating dies to cut out the Painted Seasons images will be available to purchase in March and they are an amazing addition and a must have to save on fussy cutting!

All the images I placed up on dimensionals and some Wink of Stella to the Powder Pink flower (but I don’t think you can see that in the picture).

My final card is for my mum’s birthday yesterday and it was a very special occasion.

This background is created using simple stamping of Highland Heather and Soft Seam Foam. I stamped another of the images and die cut it out to place on top of the ribbon with some Wink of Stella for added shine!
