Create With Kathe for Thursday 20th November 2014




How to we top last week’s Class?!!!
This week we made a gift box with the new “Gift Box Punch Board”, and 4 mini 3 ½” x 3 ½” cards, featuring the “Get Your Santa On” stamp set, and alos a card in shades of Purple {Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant}, featuring the “Corner Garden” stamp set and ALL the Blendabilities …


Project 1 Gift Box With 4 Mini 3 ½” x 3 ½” Cards


We made the Gift Box using an 8”x8” piece of Early Espresso cardstock, and followed the instructions for making the 4” square box.
This was my first time demonstrating the new “Gift Box Punch Board” {available for only $38.95}, and the ladies mastered it beautifully.
Like last week, I was demonstrating how one stamp set can make so many cute and different cards, and this week we made 4 mini cards, and ALL with the same stamp set “Get Your Santa On” …






Wah-lah …  Gift Box With 4 Mini 3 ½” x 3 ½” Cards done!

Project 2 “Corner Garden” Stamp Set + Blendabilities


Very excited to re-hash this idea that I first visited, just after the Blendabilities came out.
This effect is created by first heat embossing in White, then colouring the heat embossed image with the Blendabilities pens.


Because you are colouring onto the Basic Black cardstock, you can not see when you go outside the edges … brilliant!

My upline demonstrated a similar card recently with the “Corner Garden” stamp set, at out recent Nelson Christmas Extravaganza, and I re-fell-in-love with this technique.


The ladies got to choose their own sentiment from the “Wetlands” stamp set, but as I had a wedding on this past weekend, I chose stamps that specifically went with a wedding theme.


I made a card for the Bride and Groom, and also one for my Auntie and Uncle, as a “Congratulations” as their son was getting married.

Wah-lah …  “Corner Garden” Stamp Set + Blendabilities done!



Ummm … and a final note on the "Blendabilities", my last two colours arrived today {Crumb Cake and Smokey Slate}, so I now have the whole set of …
Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night Of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate, Wisteria Wonder + Skin Tone … omg … that’s $350 + of Pens!!!

"Create With Kathe" for Thursday 13th November 2014



This week we made 5 projects!!!
Well actually, a decorated card holder with 3 cards, featuring the “White Christmas” stamp set, and a 4th card featuring the colours Blackberry Bliss, Basic Gray and Whisper White.

Project 1 “White Christmas” Gift Card Set


This week’s feature stamp set was “White Christmas”, my favourite from the current Seasonal Catalogue.
I wanted to demonstrate to the ladies 3 very different cards, all featuring the same stamp set, “White Christmas”.
Each card also features matching embellished envelopes, with stamping and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders of “Lucky Stars” and “Northern Flurry”.
The idea for this card box is a case via Jacque Williams, who case’d it via Kristine McNickle and Kirstie Goldfinch.
The gift box is made with the “Gift Card Enclosure Pack”, and the cards and envelopes come in a handy pre-made pack, called “Note Cards & Envelopes”.


I drew inspiration for the second card from Lisa Young  ...


And the last card with the sponging technique via Michelle Zindorf ...


But as always added my own artistic interpretation!
Wah-lah … “White Christmas” Gift Card Set done!

Project 2 “Gorgeous Grunge” + “Petite Petals” Card


This card idea is a case via Heather Van Looy who in turn cae’s it via Sam Donald from Pootles Papercraft  


As always I added my own twist, adding the Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon bow, tied with the Linen Thread, and also making two versions of my interpretation of this card, the first with Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and the second with Pearl Basic Jewels.


I also layered up the card insert with Blackberry Bliss, Basic Gray and Whisper White.


Wah-lah …”Gorgeous Grunge” + “Petite Petals” Card done!

What Have I Missed?!!!


“What Have I Missed?!!!”



One of my crafty ladies returned last night after being away for a month on leave … and yes I do grant “leave”!!!
She was super excited to see what we got up to over the past month at my “Create With Kathe” Craft Classes ...


Her first ? when she arrived last night was … “What have I missed?!!!”.


I had a wee surprise planned for her, I had made ALL her projects over the past 4 weeks, and had them ready to present to her last night as a welcome back gift.


To say she was super surprised is an understatement!!!


She went home with a wee skip to her step AND super delighted, + she couldn't wait to share her haul with her hubby!

Create With Kathe” For Thursday 6th November 2014


Last weeks Class, we made two projects {well actually 3!}, an xtra cute Purse, made from the “Top Note” Bigz Die, in a lovely floral pattern, with a matching 3”x3” card, and a Christmas card featuring the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and matching “Wonderful Wreath” Framelits…

Project 1 “Top Note” Purse + Matching 3”x3” Card


This xtra cute Purse is made from the “Top Note” Bigz Die, and cut 3x in Soft Suede, and 1x in a patterned cardstock {I chose the “All Abloom” Designer Series Paper Stack}.
The patterned cardstock is cut back to the faux stitch line, and adhered to one of the Soft Suede Top Notes.


The inside of the purse or gusset comes from a mini paper bag, which is cut to 3” in height.
The flower is made by using the “Blossom” Punch, x4 in Strawberry Slush {or Pool Party, or Naturals White}, and then crimped x10 times in the Paper Crimper. The fibres of the cardstock are then broken down, so you can split each Blossom into 2, petal by petal {take it slowly!} = 8 Blossoms.


The Blossoms are then placed furry side up, adhered with a Mini Brad, then a Very Vintage Designer Button is threaded with Linen Thread, a bow tied, and adhered to the Blossom, over the Mini Brad.
The Blossom is then adhered to the Purse.
The closures for the Purse{s} are self-adhesive Velcro Dots.
For the mini card, Soft Suede cardstock is cut 3”x6” and folded in half.
Two pieces of Naturals White cardstock are cut to 2, 7/8”x2, 7/8”, then corner rounded with the Project Life Corner Punch.
The smudge or watermark stamp from the “Work Of Art” stamp set, and is stamped in Strawberry Slush {or Coastal Cabana}, and without re-inking the stamp, it is stamped again a second time on the cardstock to form two different shades of  pink.


Repeat this step for the inside of the card, by first stamping the stamp off to remove the bright colour ink, then restamping on the card insert.
The words “Just For You” are stamped in early Espresso.
A Heart is punched with the “Sweetheart” Punch, using matching pattered Designer Series Paper, and is backed with contrasting cardstock {Strawberry Slush}, and adhered with Dimensionals. A small Heart in contrasting cardstock is punched using the Heart from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
The small Heart is then adhered to the Sweetheart Heart, and a small Pearl Basic Jewel is added to the centre of the Heart.
I have added a small Heart to the card insert as well, along with a small Pearl Basic Jewel.


Wha-lah … “Top Note” Purse + Matching 3”x3” Card done!

Project 2 “Wondrous Wreath” Christmas Card


I wanted to demonstrate to my ladies, how one stamp set can be used to make an entire card, and the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and matching “Wonderful Wreath” Framelits is perfect for this.
We created a faux door by stamping the Naturals White cardstock with the “Hardwood” stamp in Sahara Sand, a separate smaller piece is also stamped, then cut into 4 rectangles to form the panels of the door.
A Brad from the Antique Brads is used to make the door handle.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, the Wreath is first stamped in Old Olive, then Garden Green, then Real Red to make the glorious multi coloured Christmas Wreath, which is placed on the door.
Some yummy Real Red Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around the Wreath and tied with a bow.
The sentiment “Happy Wonderful Christmas” is coloured using Early Espresso and Real Red Stampin’ Markers, and stamped onto Naturals White cardstock.
The sentiment is then cut using the “Apothecary Accents” framelits, and 2 pieces of Real Red cardstock are also cut using the same Framelits, and placed behind the sentiment to give a red border.
Adhered with Dimensionals, the final touch is my now signature Glimmer Paper Candy Dots in a lovely sparkling Red.


As the cardbase is Naturals White, there is no need for a lining, so for the card insert, the words “May happy moments & cherished memories surround you with joy this season” is stamped in Early Espresso directly onto the Naturals White cardstock.
The “Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border” Punch is used to cut a strip of Red Glimmer Paper, and is placed as a border on the bottom of the insert, for a bit of bling!


Wah-lah … “Wondrous Wreath” Christmas Card done!
