“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 31st July 2014


Thursday was my beautiful daughter JorjaRose’s 11th birthday, in between Classes, we had family time, and as a treat the kids are allowed to choose their own take-a-way dinner, this time JR chose Burger King, and I of course chose #17 “Honey Chicken Noodles” from Noodle Canteen – my fav!
My Mom-In-Law made the B’Day cake, and I decorated it … what do you think?!!!


1 pack of Maltesers and 1 pack of Pink M&Ms and the kids went crazy!!!
We had 7 little girls come for a sleepover Saturday night, so had a house full, what with our 2 + 7 extra!

Now on to craft …
Woop woop ... I made a video this week ...


Our first card made this week is called a “Magic Window Card”, and the structure of the Magic Window is a case via Teri Pocock, click here to view Teri's video Tutorial, however the card design and artistic elements are all my own idea.
The  second card made this week features the “Flower Patch” stamp set, and the layout is a case via Meg Holland and features the Baby Wipe Technique.
Using the baby Wipe Technique makes the petals of the flowers so realistic and multi-tonal in colour - ♥♥♥

Coastal Cabana + Daffodil Delight Blendabilitites


Aqua Painters used with Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush and Melon Mambo Ink Pads + Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilitites,

Adhere to base card side panels.
Stamp the Window Mechanism{s} with the “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set in Crumb Cake.
Flip the pieces over and draw a line in pencil at the half way point at 1 ½”
Measure from the edge 1 1/8” and make a pencil mark.
On the opposite side score down at 1/4”
Cut the cardstock to form the Aperture, cut at the centre line to the pencil mark, cut in from each corner to the pencil mark, to make a Pennant shape.
Do the same with both 3’x3’ Window Mechanism pieces.
Complete the centre section; layer the paper mat on to the cardstock.
Mark the centre point.
Using the “Circles” or “Starburst” Framelits, cut a circle in the centre of the card, ensuring that the circle is completely centred.
On the Base Card, measure ½” down on each side, ready to add the Aperture.
Line the Window Mechanism up 1/8” in from the side.
Apply Tombow Glue to the Aperture lightly put in place, on the edge of the DSP, but do not press down yet, repeat for the other side.
Close the card and check that the lines are horizontal, that the lines are continuous and one side is not high than the other.
If it looks okay, press down with your bone folder and smooth down.
Stamp the word “My Friend" from the “Six-Sided Sampler” stamp set in the centre of the circle of Whisper White cardstock.
Check that the words will fit inside the Aperture.


Use plenty of Tombow Glue {so you get some wiggle time} and adhere to the card. Move around to ensure you can still see the words through the Aperture.
Add the centre section of the card. This fits over the Aperture is and adhered with Tombow Glue.
Before pressing it down make sure that the Diamond or Aperture is central.
When you’re happy, give it a good press.


Wah-lah Magic Window Card” done!

Project 2 “Flower Patch” Card Featuring Baby Wipe Technique



The card-base is Strawberry Slush, with a layer of Crumb Cake which has been embossed with the “Honeycomb” Embossing Folder.
A second piece of Crumb Cake has been layered over Strawberry Slush.
Take a piece of Soft Suede, and punch with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch and layer this between the Acetate {which has been stamped with White StazOn and the words “Be You (tiful)”}, and the above layer.
Place the flowers as prepared below on to this layer, and adhere with Dimensionals and Tape.
Baby Wipe Technique - on a single baby Wipe {I used Pam’s brand}, drop single drops of “Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills” in Calypso Coral, Real Red and Strawberry Slush.
You may need to drop a couple of drops of each colour, until the colours bleed into one another.
Using the big flower from the “Flower Patch” stamp set, use the baby wipe like an ink pad and stamp on the baby wipe, ensure that the whole stamp is covered in ink, then stamp down onto the Whisper White cardstock.
You will need to stamp 3 flowers, and allow to dry.
Keep one flower as the base flower {and cut with the “Flower Fair” Framelits}.
On the 2nd flower cut the first row of petals off of the flower.
On the 3rd flower, cut 2 rows of petals off.
Layer flowers up and secure with an Antique Bard.
The yellow flower is stamped in Daffodil Delight, allow to dry then stamp the centre of the flower with Black StazOn.
For the smallest flower, stamp with Crisp Cantaloupe, then stamp with Calypso Coral to the centre, and add some black crystals for the finishing touch.
The leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz as the first layer and Old Olive as the second layer.
Use the “Flower Fair” Framelits to cut the flowers and leaves – the Big Shot makes life so much easier!
For the inside of the card, take a piece of Naturals White cardstock and stamp the words “Happy Blooming Birthday” using the Calypso Coral and Strawberry Slush Stampin’ Write Markers.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp butterflies from the “Papillion Potpourri” stamp set in Calypso Coral and Strawberry Slush and punch using the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly Punches.
Layer the butterflies and wrap a piece of Linen Tread around to form the antennae, and adhere with the tape to the inside of the card.
