Bench Fold card with Varied Vases Bundle

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a bench fold card that uses the Varied Vases bundle from the brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. This is a wonderful bundle which has 34 photopolymer stamps in the set and a coordinating punch to cut out the images. The best part is that it’s only $68.25 for the bundle!

The Wood Textures DSP is also carrying over into this new catalogue, which is wonderful news. This rarely happens but it has been so popular and it coordinates with so many of our wonderful products.

This was the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day this year ♥

Masculine Card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle with Sheet Music

Dear Crafters,

Here is another Masculine card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle, Sheet Music and Rose Wonder stamp sets, Wood Textures DSP and the Copper Metallic Foil!

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

I love the simplicity of this card, although it uses many different products. The Copper gives it a gorgeous shine and I love how the Sheet Music stamp is directly stamped onto the Wood Textures DSP! Can you see that under those leaves? I actually stamped it off once before stamping onto the paper so it was a little more subtle.

I copper embossed the Early Espresso card with the large maple leaf and heat set it before die cutting the shape. The sentiment is actually from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

I also stamped the large maple leaf on the inside of the card and on the envelope to tie it all together.

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!!!

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.

Farewell, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Masculine Farewell using Wood Textures DSP & Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Hello Friends,

My project today features the gorgeous Wood Textures DSP and isn’t it stunning?!!

I was asked to make quite a few masculine farewell cards and this is a style that I struggle with immensely, but I actually love this. I saw a similar card by Jo Anne Hewins on Pinterest and went from there.

Colour Palette: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Tranquil Tide & Cajun Craze

I added a piece of white card to the back to write your message on and stamped a couple more tulips!

Here are the instructions:

Coloured Base: 4⅛″ x 10⅞″ (10.5cm x 29.7cm). Score at 6″, 7⅛″, 9″ and 10⅛″ (15cm, 18cm, 23cm and 26cm)

White Backing: 3¾″ x 5⅝″ (9.5cm x 14.3cm)  White Card Front: 2¾″ x 4⅛ (7cm x 10.5cm)

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS:
Burnish the score lines of the Base card. Add the DSP with glue. Add Adhesive to the smaller tab and fold up to adhere to the front.
Fold each of the score lines of the front panel. Add adhesive to the small scored section at the top.  Before sticking it down, turn the cardstock over and place it on the front of the card to see where to place the adhesive on the lower panel. Add adhesive then flip it over, holding the card flat and adhere this panel.
Stamp the two white piece of cardstock and add them to the card with adhesive. Stamp the sentiment on white card and punch out. Punch two further pieces from the coloured card to use as a matt layer. Adhere to the card.

Christmas, Stampin' Up!

The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 4

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Foxy Friends & Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with the Wood Textures DSP!

Heart of Christmas Card using Foxy Friends & Seasonal Layers Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I just love this little reindeer stamped in Crumb Cake and Glimmer Red nose! The Fox Builder Punch was used to punch out his little head to pop up on dimensionals.

The Wood Textures DSP is so amazing and it can be used for nearly any style card, including Christmas! Who would have thought?!!!

Those snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits are super cute and add the perfect embellishments to this card, along with the sentiment using the Classic Label Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.
