I just love the Carousels and Cupcakes Product Suite in the Occasions Catalogue, so it figured that I would go kind of crazy this past week or so with some creations using this gorgeous stamp set and Designer Series Paper Stack. The three cards you see at the top were all cased from Pinterest and my stamp club ladies enjoyed making them last week, to get our mojo into gear for 2017.

Here are some close ups.

2017-01-20 13.00.41 (346x550)

2017-01-20 13.02.12 (363x550)

2017-01-20 13.01.58 (344x550)

But what I really wanted to do, and something I started planning a couple of weeks ago, was an actual carousel using the gorgeous carousel horses. My birthday is coming up, and I thought, how amazing to make my own cake topper with these gorgeous products!

2017-01-25 20.42.18 (600x338)

This one is seriously just a prototype because it's kind of wonky and I used a stack of glue with the hot glue gun, but how gorgeous, gorgeous is it??

2017-01-25 20.41.43 (432x550)

2017-01-25 20.41.32 (440x550)

2017-01-25 20.42.04 (392x550)

I was more than happy last night to discover the Global Design Project theme this week is 3D projects so I'm waving the #GDP071 flag too, along with the Case-ing the Catty Team who have Cupcakes & Carousels as their inspiration this week!

Hey Chick Paper Piecing Video

 

On the 29th of November I posted some Paper Piecing ideas using the delicious Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack which was in the Holiday Catalogue and was discounted heavily in the Year End Clearance. I encouraged all those I came in contact with to buy the paper stack ASAP so they could do this project (See it here).

A couple of people commented on my blog post, requesting a video of how to do it, and since the Christmas Holidays and that busy December period are now over, I finally had some time yesterday to do a Facebook Live recording, showing you how I cut and coloured the cute hens from Hey Chick Sale-a-bration stamp set. 

Click on the video below to learn how quick and simple this technique is! 

Hey Chick Paper Piecing

Posted by Katlo Designs - Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator on Monday, January 9, 2017

The Hey Chick stamp set is one of the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp sets you can select with each $90 product order, between now and March 31st.

There are lots of other exciting products to choose from too. If you'd like to see the new Occasions Catalogue online, click here. If you would like a hard copy in the mail, please let me know via email so I can see if I still have your current snail mail address.

See you soon!

 


Swirly Bird Card Making Ideas

Just a really quick post today, to share a rebuild of an old favourite!

When the latest Stampin' Up! annual catalogue came out in June, I think just about every demonstrator pre-ordered Swirly Bird Stamp Set and Thinlets.

I've seen a few variations of this card now, and this is the 4th or 5th one I have made, but it never ceases to be a fun card to make, and to get a great reaction from the recipient.

Welcome Swirly Bird Minnie!

Swirly Bird Minnie Mouse

Featuring Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper and Ruched Ribbon, Petite Pansy Punch and Bow Builder Punch, this is a fun card to make, and easy to do with the 8-12 year old girls who would probably most love it!

Give it a try today!

Buy Swirly Bird Online Here.


Fashion Design in Cardmaking!

So, I really felt like I was in the Chanel studios lately, knocking out some sample sheets with colours and patterns!

And that is the one utterly amazing thing about Stampin' Up!s product range! They make it so darn easy to feel like a real artist, someone with a real flair for amazing combinations of colours, shapes, patterns . . . 

Take a look at my fashion spread!

Beautiful You cards (3)

Seriously, you just can't create an ugly card when you put Stampin' Up!s co-ordinating products together!

Beautiful You cards (2)

The recipients of these two beautitul copper based cards are actually two of my team members who recently advanced in title from Bronze to Bronze Elite. We don't have bronze in our colour pallet at the moment, but I'm sure you'll agree that the Copper Foil makes an awesome substitute.

I've used the Layering Squares Framelits, Copper Foil Card, Beautiful You Stamp Set and Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with a touch of Cajun Craze ink to finish these cards, which I think are just really lovely!

I can see myself doing lots of these types of cards in classes early next year. What do you think? Would you like to come along and get your haute couture hat on?


Warmth & Cheer Card Making Ideas

When I saw the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack, my first thought was kind of along the lines of what am I ever going to do with daggy old knitted tartan print patterns??

Well, if you saw my Angel cards using the Wonder of Christmas stamp set a couple of months back, you will know I soon got over that negative thought! I had olde worlde patchwork quilt patterns popping up every where!

But that wasn't the end of it!

No way!

Because then we went to Stampin' Up!s famous global get together - On Stage Live, in Brisbane and saw the amazing products that are coming in Sale-a-bration in January and one of the stamp sets sang to my heart, and to my Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack!

Hey Chick Christmas (2)

Oh My Gosh!

How beyond cute are these fat hens from the "Hey Chick" stamp set which is one of the stamp sets you can receive free with your qualifying order in January through March! You can't buy this set, but you can receive it as a gift.

I just love, love, love it!

And of course, the paper stack is available to purchase now - in fact, if you want to recreate these cards, you will need to order the paper stack now because it's in the Holiday Catalogue and won't be available to purchase after January 3rd.

I have been absolutely loving the Candy Cane Lane Product Suite and all the gorgeous projects I have seen made with it, but as usual, I haven't made nearly enough time to use it myself - so tonight's blog hop was ideal.

2016-11-24 21.28.48 (499x431)

And you know how much I adore those little gift bags with the 5"x 3 1/2" note cards in them?  So quick and so cute!

2016-11-24 21.28.58 (499x349)

I've used the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp set, the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I can see myself making many more variations of these!

Centre Step Card Ideas

I love it when I get asked to make a really special card for someone's significant birthday.

Firstly, it's a compliment that someone loves my work enough to invite me to craft something beautiful for them to give to someone they really care about, and secondly, it allows me a chance to extend myself beyond my normal everyday cards.

I was recently asked to make a 90th Birthday Card for a much loved Mum - something bright and floral and larger than standard size.

Blooms & Bliss Botanical Centre Step Card (5)

I teamed Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper with Botanical Blooms Thinlet Dies and the Numbers of Years and Letters for You stamp sets and framelits to create this centre step card. I love it! And so did the lady who asked me to create it.

Here's a couple of the steps.

The base card is full A4 Shimmer White card, scored in half and then the centre step scorelines and cuts made at 3cm in from each edge.

The mats of Rich Razzleberry and the DSP were then cut to fit inside each panel (lots of measuring with a clear ruler).

Blooms & Bliss Botanical Centre Step Card (1)

I then cut stacks (more than I would need) of flowers and leaves from the Botanical Blooms Thinlets in Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and stamped the lines on the leaves.

Blooms & Bliss Botanical Centre Step Card (2)

The numbers and letters were stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Shimmery White and cut out and it was all adhered together with a mix of mini gluedots, Stampin' Dimenionals and Fast Fuse Tape.

Blooms & Bliss Botanical Centre Step Card (3)

I love that it was big enough to put MUM on the inside with still plenty of space to write.

Blooms & Bliss Botanical Centre Step Card (4)

A few people have commented to me that the Numbers of Years and Letters for You bundles of stamps and framelits are just too expensive. However, I have used them so much already that they have certainly paid for themselves! And they are in our Annual Catalogue which means they are available to order for another seven (7) or so months, so you can certainly get your money's worth!

Or, consider getting them as part of a Stampin' Up! starter kit, where you select $235 of product but only pay $169 for it. Bargain!

Ask me about it today!
