Baby wipe Texture

Dear Crafters,

Today I have used the baby wipe technique with the Touches of Texture stamp set.

I die cut the Layered Squares framelits into the front of the A5 Emerald Envy card.

Next, I stamped the leaves (emerald envy) onto whisper white card stock and then the outline of the flower with dapper denim ink. I used the large splatter stamp with crushed curry ink and put that behind the flower.

I squirted some drops of crushed curry, blushing bride & soft sky onto some baby wipes that are sitting on a plastic plate, then pressed the stamp into it and then onto the flower!

I added a gold glimmer sentiment, hello from the Hello you thinlits and some emerald envy thick baker’s twine in a double bow!

I was super happy with the look of this one!

Thoughtful Branches, Hedgehog

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card I saw on Pinterest but I’ve changed it up to use products that I have. It’s using the Thoughtful Branches dies along with a few others that you will be able to identify!

So here is my cute little hedgehog!

Oh my, have you seen this stunning Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder? You have to get it! This is the first time I’ve used it and WOW, doesn’t it give a great effect!!!!

Can you tell that the spikes are created from the tree (less the trunk!) die?

thoughtful-branches-hedgehog-cable-knit-dynamic-tief-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I have used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Black card, along with Soft Sky.

AWH Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop!

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the lovely, Rebecca Jacovou.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects today I am using the Cookie Cutter Bundle (Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch). By purchasing these items together you save an extra 10%.

Who doesn’t think of Rudolf when you think of Christmas? Well, Santa has to get here somehow and guess who is the leader of the gang?!!!! So today I begin with a card with Rudolf being the focus!

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016, DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

Having a stamp and coordinating punch, makes cards so easy to create. By stamping the background with multiple of the same image, you don’t necessarily need designer paper to get started. Stamp the image again onto the same colour card and punch it out and centre it to the card on dimensionals.

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer, Rudolph, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

I added some of the new copper metallic thread behind for a little bling and a shiny red nose with some Dazzling Details and a bright red sentiment in the bottom corner.

Next is a similar card, but stepped up with an embossed background with copper embossing powder.

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Reindeer, Copper, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

The Real Red card was die cut with the Layering Squares framelits and I used the copper metallic thread wrapped around it multiple times for an effective pattern.

Also in this bundle, is a teddy bear (cute hey?!) and the sentiment Have yourself a beary merry Christmas!

Cards by Kate, Cookie Cutter Teddy, Beary Christmas, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 DIY @cardsbykatemorgan

This time I have used some Designer Series Paper, Pinecones and Presents and I selected the piece with the little bows to coordinate with the bow on my teddy bear.

The Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon is tied in a knot with some gold sequin trim.

And now for some cute little Santa earrings, made with this bundle and using some Shrink Plastic! How cool that you can use your stampin’ stuff to create these gorgeous accessories!!!

Copper Star

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about the new Star of Light Bundle.

I adore the copper coordinating with the Night of Navy and white stars in the background!

star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with copper.

star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate  star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

The stars background was inked with White Craft ink but stamped off before applying to the Night of Navy card.

star-of-light-copper-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate  star-of-light-copper-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate

I die cut some vellum with the full star before die cutting the copper foil sheet with the intricate die. Then I glued them together and added it to the card with dimensionals.

I just love how shiny that copper foil is!!!

Santa’s Sleigh

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about the new Santa’s Sleigh Bundle, but this time in a Z fold card!

cards-by-kate-santas-sleigh-thoughtful-branches-diy-christmas-reindeer-holidaycatalogue2016-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I love how when you open the card, the sleigh is being towed by multiple reindeer!!

On the inside of the Z fold, I also added another piece like when you make the Card in a Box style, where I added some trees stamped on acetate/window sheet. The moon behind was punched using the 1-3/8″ circle punch.

The clouds were inked with White Craft ink and stamped off before applying to the Night of Navy card.

I added some thick baker’s twine around the neck of each reindeer. It looks a bit like a scarf, don’t you think?!!!

Woodland Sleigh

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about Christmas and the new Santa’s Sleigh Bundle, combining it with the Woodland TIEF.

cards-by-kate-santas-sleigh-christmas-pines-woodland-diy-christmas-reindeer-holidaycatalogue2016-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I love the sleigh in the glimmer card and the reindeer is super cute!

cards-by-kate-santas-sleigh-christmas-pines-woodland-diy-christmas-reindeer-holidaycatalogue2016-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

The sentiment was added as a banner but it needed some dimension, so I curled it with the bone folder to create extra interest.

I was super happy with the outcome. What do you think of this card?
