Once you emboss the white layer with the embossing folder through the Big Shot, use the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the raised flowers.

Adhere all the layers together and add the punched pieces. The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set and I sponged the edges of the circle with a sponge dauber in the same Petal Pink ink. This circle is adhered with a dimensional. The bow is added and two pearls coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends marker.

Colour Creations: Powder Pink & watercolour in Tea Together

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Our Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop features our 40th colour; Powder Pink. This is one of the In Colours that will retire in June, so make sure you purchase anything Powder Pink now while they are still available!

I have had this stamp set, Tea Together with the coordinating Tea Time Framelits dies for a little while now but this is my first time inking it up. Why did I wait so long???!!!

My colour palette: Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam & Fresh Fig

The images were all stamped with Versamark ink on Watercolour Paper, Gold Emboss Powder added and Heat set. Then I coloured using the AquaPainter and ink from the stamp pads. I did all this and let them dry before die cutting each of the images out.

I embossed the Fresh Fig layer with the Tin Tile Embossing folder before using the Versamark pad around each of the edges, just swiping gently across the pad then dipping each edge in the Gold Emboss Powder & heat set. I also did this on the Powder Pink layer inside the card!

I sprinkled some extra gold emboss powder gently over the embossed Fresh Fig card and heat set it from behind so the powder didn’t blow away and stayed where I needed it.

I gold embossed the doily as well and placed some Gold Metallic Thread behind the tea pot, which is adhered with dimensionals.

I love the watercolour effect of this rose, super pretty.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and Gold embossed it also. Do you think I have enough Gold??!!!

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

You Can Do Anything!

You know, when I saw this stamp set, I like it, but I wasn’t keen to have to fussy cut around those little froggy limbs, if you know what I mean?!!

Until Stampin’ Up! told us that they were bringing out framelits for a limited time only during March 2019 to coordinate with many of the Sale-a-bration items, and guess what, this set was added to my very next order!!!!

If you want to get these framelits though, they are only available while stocks last and believe me, they are worth their weight in gold!!!

HOPAROUND

We made this card at my latest techniques class and the ladies loved it. The white layer and Soft Seam Foam layer we embossed with the Subtle TIEF. Each layer is glued down flat, but the die cut images are added with diminsionals.

We used the Stampin’ Blends markers to colour the images – how cute is it?

The strip of designer paper is now retired from the Holiday catalogue, but I had just the right amount left over and it coordinates perfectly with this stamp set.

Colour Creations: Poppy Parade with a vibrant colour combination

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Our AWHT Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop features our 39th colour; Poppy Parade. This Wishing You Well card was  one of the cards we made in my class on Saturday. Check out how vibrant it looks against the Tin Tile Embossed black background!!!!

I know I am probably pushing the boundaries in the use of Poppy Parade, but I think it is this pop of colour in adding Poppy Parade that makes all the difference to this card!

Lasting Lily Stampin Up Saleabration 2019 Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia

The Lasting Lily stamp set is one of the Sale-a-bration items you can choose for free with a $90 order this month. Also available for March only, are the coordinating framelits to cut out these images, making life so much easier.

LILY

The flowers are inked in Mango Melody and then I used a sponge dauber with Poppy Parade ink and gently added ink to the edges of the stamp before stamping onto the paper. It gives such a wonderful two tone depth to the image.

I was so inspired by Emma Goddard, one of the Artisan Design Team members, and had to case this design.

Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

No matter who we are, we are all the same on the inside!

Today’s card is a small token (with a big bunch of bright pink gerbera flowers) of thanks for a dear friend of mine who has been so supportive of me in my fight with MS. She’s wanted to support and help me in easing the pressure of learning to drive again (using hand controls) to regain some independence. She setup a Go Fund Me page and  I cannot thank everyone enough with how generous they have been. Yesterday I had another driving lesson which took us through busy Dandenong, learning to park and drive through unpredictable and unknown areas. I am so determined to do this and with Lisa’s help it is feeling closer than ever. Thank you xxx

Here is the card I made her using the Artfully Aware stamp set from pg46 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This is the perfect stamp set, don’t you think?!

I stamped the ribbon image multiple times in the background in Petal Pink and used the Wink of Stella to colour each one (the photo doesn’t do it justice).

Artfully Aware Thank you by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.jpg

The image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

How good does the layering of the different punched pieces look? I also dry embossed them with different embossing folders for extra texture. The embellishment of the ladies wrist is a retired Glitter Epoxy Shape, but I thought is was cute.

Artfully Aware Thank you card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

You know friends really are so supportive and being International Women’s Day, it was the absolute perfect time to share this.

Painted Seasons for a special birthday

On Sunday it was my mother-in-law, Bev’s birthday and this was the card we sent her. She lives 6 hours drive away from us, so we don’t get to visit them often, but we are very close. Bev is even a team member and we are going to Auckland together next month for OnStage Live event… the biggest Stampin’ Up! event of the year, and we cannot wait!!!

Painted Seasons Feminine birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.JPG

These distinctive stamps make creating so easy. These flowers look so real and they are only stamped in one colour and one impression!!! What a great background it makes, and doesn’t it look like designer paper?!!!

Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam are a delightful colour combination, don’t you think? I adore it together.

Colour Creations: Pool Party with a Subtle look

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 38th colour; Pool Party.

My colour combination: Pool Party, Highland Heather and Whisper White

Beauty Abounds for Pool Party Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.JPG

The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on the Pool Party and Whisper White layers and I left the Highland Heather layer flat. The Rectangle Stitched Framelits were the perfect fit for this image which is stamped in Pool Party ink. I coloured the flowers and leaves using a Blender Pen & coordinating inkpads for a more subtle, feminine look.

I added some of the small pearl jewels to the centres of the flowers and the Pool Party Shimmer ribbon bow to finish off the softness of this card.

Gingham, Origami & Butterflies.. what more could you want?!!

Today is my mum’s 70th birthday, and we will have a lovely celebration this weekend for her but in the meantime, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! I can’t share her card with you just yet either, so I have a design we made at my recent class using the Butterfly Gala Suite.

This Gingham Gala paper is super versatile, you can use it for any type of project; masculine or feminine!

butterfly gala origami window card by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

On the inside I simply glued a piece of gingham paper and another small stamped butterfly. I would also add a sentiment of Happy Birthday or Thinking of You, but I haven’t worked out who I am giving it to just yet.

Colour Creations: Pineapple Punch Window card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 37th colour; Pineapple Punch.

I love this vibrant and bright colour and it is one of the many colours in the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper and so I had to use this in my project today.

Window card using Stampin Up Butterfly Gala, Happiness Blooms Occasions 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

First, I glued the DSP to the front of the card before using the layering squares framelits to cut the window. Then I used that same die with the larger scallop die to cut out the Pineapple Punch frame to glue on top of the DSP around the window.

I stamped and punched out the large butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.

Window card using Stampin Up Butterfly Gala, Happiness Blooms Occasions 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

Inside the card, I added a smaller white card, folded in half. I placed glue only on the bottom panel, so the top panel could stay like this when you open the card. Once this was in place, I closed the card and glued the butterfly onto the white card through the window so I could centre it perfectly.

window card using stampin up butterfly gala, happiness blooms occasions 2019 by kate morgan, australia

When the card is fully open, it looks like this!

window card using stampin up butterfly gala, happiness blooms occasions 2019 by kate morgan, australia.

I added another butterfly to the corner of the card and will add a sentiment when the time is right for the occasion. I tied a piece of the Pineapple Punch Grosgrain ribbon through the centre of the card and tied it in a bow at the front.
