Birthday, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

It’s a piece of cake for a 21st!

Today, I am sharing a card that I was asked to make for friend’s friend. The brief was Black, Silver & Gold, 21st birthday of a young lady named Lia. I like to try and use all the info when making these special occasion cards and I think I have met the brief. What do you think?

The black card base has a layer of Gold Foil with another black card layer over the top. A silver square layer with another smaller black layer with a 1-3/4″ circle punched out of the centre. The 21 are cut with the retired Little Numbers dies which are still so handy to have! The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Holiday catalogue was the perfect finishing touch.

I have used the new Piece of Cake stamp set and coordinating Cake Builder punch from the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue. The cake stand is punched in gold foil and the cake is stamped in Versamark and gold emboss powder added and heat set. I then added some Wink of Stella over the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and added LIA using the large letter framelits dies in black card with a wash of Champagne Mist Shimmer paint applied with an AquaPainter.

Under the Mistletoe this Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card that is so easy to create. It’s just cutting some strips of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and gluing them to the front of the card.

Under the Mistletoe DSP Stampin Up Christmas 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the sentiments in Shaded Spruce using the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and used the coordinating framelits to cut it out and sponged around the edges, before adding it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I also used the 1/2″ circle punch to take a tiny bit from the centre spine of the card to thread through some red ribbon and tie it in a bow at the front. I added some Sprigs of Mistletoe punched from some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper pack for some added sparkle!

Colour Creations: Melon Mambo in Needlepoint

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Melon Mambo!!!  This was one of the first colours I purchased through Stampin Up almost 6 years ago, I just love it.

This card uses the Needlepoint Nook suite of products from the upcoming Occasions catalogue, which will be available to purchase in January 2019. If you would like to get these earlier, you can join my team and purchase them in December (one of the perks of being a demonstrator)!

I have used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody and Pool Party as my colour combination.

I love when a stamp set has coordinating framelits, it makes it so much easier than fussy cutting images. I also love the faux stitching die used as the background on the Pool Party card, don’t you?!!!

On the inside I’ve added the sentiment in Pool Party ink and I can think of many recipients I could give this card too at this moment in time. I love the mixed fonts; it gives it a little something extra!

Dashing Deer meets Delicate Lace for a bright Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card using the Dashing Deer framelits and the Delicate Lace edgelits with some Designer Series Paper and gold!

I cut and folded my Poppy Parade card base and used the Delicate Lace edgelit along the side. This then helped determine the size and placement of the banners.

The Starburst punch was used to cut some Garden Green card which was the embossed using the Big Shot and the Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This was added with dimensionals and the Gold Foil reindeer added last.

A 1″ strip of DSP was added to the inside of the card, behind that gorgeous lace border.

Christmas Wreath Punch Art

Today, I am sharing a Christmas wreath card created using the Sprig Punch!

This punch is in the Holiday catalogue and has been super popular, so I’m crossing my fingers it may roll over into the next Annual catalogue.

I have a Thick Whisper White card base with a layer of Garden Green card and some DSP from the Santa’s Workshop DSP pack. I punched about 20 sprigs in Garden Green card and began layering them in a circle shape and building it up until it looked reasonably full.  I added a few Poppy Parade berries using the 1/8″ handheld circle and adhered them with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

Sprig Christmas Wreath by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2018

The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green on Poppy Parade card and die cut and added with dimensionals. The bow was some of the Tea Room ribbon combo pack from the Annual catalogue. The HAPPY was die cut in Gold Glimmer and added with Tombo glue. Doesn’t it look pretty across the wreath?!!!

Piece of Cake for Colour Creations Mango Melody Blog Hop, Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

My card base is Mango Melody and I randomly stamped the cake image on the same ink colour across the front of the card. I stamped the same image on Whisper White card and punched it out with the Cake Builder punch. I also stamped the flowers and fussy cut them to add to the top of the cake. I applied Wink of Stella to the flowers and the flowers on the cake. Not sure if you can see that in the photo?!

The stand is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold emboss powder. I coloured part of it with the Stampin Write Marker. I layered some Coastal Cabana card and white card with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. These layers were all sponged around the edges with a dauber.

The sentiment is stamped and the Classic Label Punch to cut it out and add with a dimensional.

Blog Hop, Christmas, Designer Series Paper, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

Christmas made easy with DSP!

Today, I am sharing a couple of very quick and easy Christmas cards using predominantly Designer Series Paper!

Both of these are using the Santa’s Workshop DSP, a really cute stack of papers and if you look closely, you can see that some of it has flocking on it. The white of that striped background, has a velvety feel to it, as does the apron, and hat trims of those little elves!!!

Santas Workshop Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

These cards use Garden Green card bases with layers of Designer paper. Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping on these cards?! The words are die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

Card making does not have to only be for the avid crafter, and I hope by sharing these quick and easy cards, you too can be inspired to create your own cards this Christmas!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Lovely Lipstick and this is my photo inspiration. How gorgeous are the colours of these flowers?! My dear friends gave me this following a couple of weeks of poor health and they certainly cheered me up!

What Stampin’ Up! colours do you see?  Apart from Lovely Lipstick, I see Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape!

I was so inspired by these flowers that I had to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with coordinating Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies!

Beautiful Bouquet for Lovely Lipstick Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018.JPG

There is very little stamping on this card, only the sentiment and the Green flowers. Everything else is die cut using the framelits and glued to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive. I did add some Wink of Stella to the bow!

Sketch Challenge for our last Art with Heart Blog Hop for 2018!

Blog Hop Card Sketch Nov 18

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring a card sketch. We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on this sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share your projects with us!

Blog-hop-sketch

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from our hop organiser, Ros Davidson. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!

My first project tonight uses the stamp set, Enjoy Life with a technique called the Floating Window. The card base is Tranquil Tide with a Square die cut out of the front. I placed a small piece of Berry Burst Metallic Edged Ribbon, cut on angles, below the square to act a bit like a window shelf.

Enjoy Life 2018 Handmade Card using Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia

On the inside of the card, I used my D size clear block and tapped it onto the Pool Party Inkpad, then spritzed it with some water and stamped it onto the Whisper White card for a cool watercolour effect. You must wait for this to dry before stamping the images over the top in Stazon Black ink and the female image in Berry Burst ink. By using the Stamparatus, I could then keep the figure in the same position to be able to ink the window sheet in the exact same place so it lays over the top of the image on the inside of the card when you open and close it.

A piece of window sheet is stamped with Stazon Black ink with the grass and the female image only.  Using the Stamparatus, I could get a nice dark image, by re-inking the stamps a couple of times. You may be able to see the two images layered in this photo!

My second project is a quick Christmas card, using some of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper with some Frost White Shimmer Paint sponged over the top. The sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink and silver embossing powder applied, then heat set with a heat tool. I also added a square of Silver Foil and some Silver Glimmer cut with the Triple Banner Punch.
