Happy birthday, Gorgeous

I made this card for a dear friend who was a work colleague for many years, but left a couple of years ago. It was her 60th birthday which also happened to fall on Father’s Day, so happy birthday Sarah!

Did you see the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the front? It is from the new Holiday catalogue, but it looks fab on this non-Christmassy card. It will be one we can use on lots of different projects, thanks Stampin’ Up!

The lady is stamped in Petal Pink ink and her dress is coloured with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen and the hat was dipped in some Melon Mambo ink to pick up a bit of coordinating colour! The sentiment is stamped over the top afterwards in Melon Mambo ink so it didn’t smudge.

As you open this card, it reveals more of the Garden Impressions Designer Paper which coordinates so well with this elegant lady, don’t you think?!! I can see her at a wonderful garden party!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. It is perfect for the fabulous Sarah.

Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy

The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-craft-with-kate

The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy-craft-with-kate

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville

The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Make a Wish

Dear Crafters,

 

Who doesn’t love cupcakes? I know my family love them and what better way to say happy birthday, than with a cupcake!

So today I have a bright and cheery cupcake card using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White.

cupcake-wish-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-diy-classes-in-rowville

The ‘wish’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits, but here’s a tip for you…

See the background card stock, emboss it first and then die cut the centre to save on card stock (see below). You will then cover it up with the Peekaboo Peach layer!!!! Adhere this to  the front of an A5 card.

Birthday, feminine, Stampin' Up!

Sweet Cupcake

Dear Crafters,

Yesterday was my birthday and I also share it with my daughter’s friend, Mia who turned 10! I won’t tell you how old I am, but let’s just say and few more years than that but I only feel 21! lol

Anyway, here is the card I made for Mia. I mean, what little lady doesn’t love sweet pink cupcakes right?!

Cards by Kate, Sweet Cupcake, Pink Frosting, DIY #stampinup, @cardsbykatemorgan

I love the stars embossing on the background and the Curvy Corner Trio punch. The coordinating ruched ribbon is stunning to use also. They don’t call it Sweet Sugarplum for no reason and it certainly looks amazing in this cupcake!!!

Cards by Kate, Sweet Cupcake, Pink Frosting, Wink of Stella, DIY #stampinup, @cardsbykatemorgan  Cards by Kate, Sweet Cupcake, Wink of Stella Pink Frosting, DIY #stampinup, @cardsbykatemorgan

Check out the frosting too, it has Wink of Stella added to make it even more delectable. YUM!

Butterflies, feminine, Stampin' Up!

Butterfly with Detailed Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Do you love butterflies like me? Yes? I find I am always drawn to butterflies for many different types of cards, from sympathy to birthday to Thanks or even just a Thinking of You card!

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup, DIY @cardsbykate

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Very Vanilla embossed with the Fluttering textured impressions embossing folder. Each of these butterflies has a shimmer, which was added by brushing some Wink of Stella over each one.

The layered squares framelits were used to create the square layer and some lace trim added to the bottom of this layer before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I die cut a piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer paper with the Bold Butterfly framelit.

I die cut the larger of the Detailed Floral Thinlits in Very Vanilla card, then placed the bold butterfly framelit over the top and die cut it. Leaving it in the framelit and not removing it just yet, I added small dobs of Tombo glue to the back and then placed the Designer Series Paper butterfly over it, easily lining it up using the edges of the framelit!

I added Wink of Stella to the Vanilla pattern on the butterfly.

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup DIY @cardsbykate

Tie some gold cording trim around the body of the butterfly and two small pieces for the antennae. I also tied a bow around the front of the trim, before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I haven’t added a sentiment, because it really doesn’t need one, but it can then be used for any occasions!!!

Flowers, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

For all the thoughtful things you do

Dear Crafters,

Here’s a classic navy and white colour combination with a hint of colour!

Floral Phrases, Floral Boutique DSP, #stampinup, DIY, Floral Affection TIEF, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I adore this new designer series paper, Floral Boutique. I have teamed it together with the coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases and the new Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Once I embossed the white card, I die cut it with the Oval framelits. I began by colouring the navy flowers with the aquapainter, but decided to use the Stampin’ Write Markers for a more solid colour. I went over the flowers only with the Wink of Stella.

Painter’s Palette Shaker Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some more new products from the upcoming 2016-2017 Annual catalogue which goes live on 1st June!

This is the new Painter’s Palette stamp set in a shaker card.

Painter's Palette, Shaker Card, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

The sentiment is coloured using the Wink of Stella directly into some Emerald Envy ink and applied directly to the sentiment. This ink is one of the new In Colours, isn’t it pretty?

Painter's Palette, Shaker Card, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

The easel is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink (another of the new In Colours) and the Layered Square Framelits was used to cut out the inside to create the shaker card. I have used some retired in colour sequins which I thought actually went quite well with these new in colours.

Painter's Palette, Shaker Card, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

The star image is also stamped in Emerald Envy and the Medium Star punch was used to cut it out before adding it with a dimensional. The shaker card uses another new product of foam adhesive strips which makes it much easier. Be sure to check them out on 1st June!

Designer Series Paper, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Floral Affection

Dear Crafters,

Last week I shared some cards using the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape and today I have a card using the DSP and the Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the same suite!

So here is my card!

Affectionately Yours DSP, Thoughtful Banners, Layering Squares Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Floral Affection TIEF, DIY, #stampinup

The sentiment is a new stamp set, Thoughtful Banners that will be available from 1st June in the brand new 2016-2017 Annual catalogue. It can also be purchased in a bundle with the Duet Banners punch, saving you 10%. It is a photopolymer set, so it is completely clear and pliable. As you can see, I have shaped the sentiment to the shape of the banner!

Affectionately Yours DSP, Thoughtful Banners, Layering Squares Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Floral Affection TIEF, DIY, #stampinup

The embossing folder is also a new product and I jazzed it up by adding some Wink of Stella on the raised image. I’m not sure if you can see that clearly in the photos?!

Some people commented that by placing the banner upside down (so to speak) it looks like my card is smiling!

Rose Wonder White Wash

Dear Crafters,

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

This is such a gorgeous stamp set and who doesn’t love roses?

So here is my card!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

The technique used to create this card is called the white wash technique. Simply, the image is stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, then a white wash applied to the image with an Aquapainter and then coloured using the Aquapainter and inks. There are many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest if you would like to have a go!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

Once I coloured the image using rose red ink, I added some Wink of Stella ~ how gorgeous and sparkly does that look?!!!! Oh I love some sparkle!!! lol
