A Little Note with Butterfly Gala

Today’s card uses the Butterfly Gala Bundle and the stunning Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder with some Sale-a-bration products; Botanical Butterfly DSP & the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack! These can be selected during January – March 2019 with each $90+ order.

I love Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White together. It is a stunning combination.

Butterfly Gala & Botantical Butterfly DSP Stampin Up Occasions, Saleabration by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

Just check out that Botanical Butterfly DSP. It is just so pretty and I think this piece is my favourite in the pack. By using a small strip of it like this down one side of the card, you can make plenty of cards with one sheet!

I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly for some added shine. A piece of the Organdy ribbon was placed behind the circles for a little more interest and texture.

On the inside, I added the simple sentiment which can be used for many occasions, and a couple more of the smaller butterflies.

Colour Creations: Mossy Meadow in a Floral Romance

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 31st colour; Mossy Meadow. This was one of the 2014-2016 In Colours and it is back and into the Neutrals Collection!

Mossy Meadow

My colour combination is: Mossy Meadow, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake & Flirty Flamingo. The Floral Romance Suite; Wonderful Romance Stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Floral framelits dies were used to create this card. This was the stamp set I won in Prize Patrol at OnStage in November, so naturally I had to purchase the framelits to make life easier!!!

Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the images; Dark Crumb Cake, Light & Dark Flirty Flamingo, Light & Dark Mint Macaron. The outline of the image was stamped in Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. It was easy to cut out with the dies and I added it to the card with dimensionals. The 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim was tied in a bow and added to the stems for a natural feel.

Beauty Abounds in bright bold colours!

Today, I share a card that uses some new products from the Occasions catalogue, Beauty Abounds Bundle.

Beauty Abounds with Stampin Up Embossing Mats by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

What do you think of this colour palette; Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Melon Mambo? I think it is gorgeous!!!! The above photo looks a little dark (sorry about that) and the Melon Mambo butterflies look more like Lovely Lipstick… oops, bad photography.

Beauty Abounds with Stampin Up Embossing Mats by Kate Morgan Australia 2019..JPG

I used the Embossing Mats with the large butterflies die and ran it through the Big Shot with the Highland Heather Heather cardstock. Then I die cut the Melon Mambo butterflies die and glued it with Tombo Multipurpose over the top.

The bubbles were stamped off once before stamping on the Highland Heather cardstock for a lighter colour.

I added some of the Glitter Enamel dots for some sparkle and they really gave it a gorgeous, bright, lift of colour.

On the inside, I simply stamped the image in Coastal Cabana ink ad coloured the flowers with the Wink of Stella.

So in love with Peter Rabbit of Fable Friends

Today, I have one of the cutest stamp sets in the new Occasions catalogue, Fable Friends. It has Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle duck images and these absolutely take me back to my childhood. My Nanna (who passed away in 1980) even cross-stitched both of these for my sister and myself when we were young children. I still have it and it’s so precious to me, so when I saw this in the catalogue it was straight on my list!

Fable Friends & Floral Romance Suite Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

My card base is Balmy Blue, embossed using the new Lace Dynamic TIEF. The So Saffron circle is die cut using the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and the leaves are from the same set, cut in Soft Sea Foam. The flower is from the Wonderful Romance stamp set which coordinates with these framelits.

Peter Rabbit is stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. I had to fussy cut him so he sat on top of the yellow die cut. I added a couple of little pearl embellishments for his buttons.

The Organdy Balmy Blue ribbon can be earned for FREE with any $90 order and it comes with 4 other coloured rolls of ribbon in the one pack!!! Great value freebie!

Colour Creations: Mint Macaron for Easter Greetings with Jemima & her Fable Friends

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop and our first for 2019. Today we are featuring our 30th colour; Mint Macaron. This was a previous 2015-2017 In Colour which retired but it has returned with the revamp in June, to the Subtles Collection.

I have made an Easter card today with the gorgeous Fable Friends stamp set. What a pretty colour combination of Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo & Whisper White with some waterclouring.

Check out those Stitched Rectangle Dies with the Subtle Embossing Dynamic TIEF. The ducks are stamped with Stazon ink using the Stamparatus for perfect positioning. I have then coloured the images with Watercolour Pencils and used my Blender Pen to blend the colour. The gorgeous Flirty Flamingo ribbon is part of the All My Love Ribbon Combo pack and coordinated perfectly with this card.

And this inspired me to ink up my Butterfly Gala stamp set between Christmas and New Year and I stamped, stamped and stamped and punched all of these beauties!!! So, be sure to watch this space over the next couple of months for how I use them.

Beauty Abounds with stunning Monarch Butterflies for the start of Sale-a-bration!

Tomorrow is the start of Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue 2019!!!

Are you excited? There are so many gorgeous new products and I’d love to know what will be first on your shopping list. I must confess, I loved so much, but I had to have some self control and started with the butterflies. I just cannot live without them!

Some of our lovely team ladies took part in a card swap, which meant we made 11 of the same card, sent them to Claire who divided them up and returned 11 cards to us. The variety is amazing and to see what this talented group of ladies came up with was awe-inspiring!

Here is the one I made using the Beauty Abounds bundle; Beauty Abounds Stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies. I love how there are 2 dies and they overlap for that stunning two tone look.

This colour palette; Black, White & Pumpkin Pie, reminds me of the most common monarch butterflies we have here in Australia and we have had plenty of them this spring and summer!

I used my Stamparatus to setup all the stamp images to make it so much quicker and easier when making multiples of the one card – awesome!

The inside I stamped the sentiment and butterfly and rounded 2 corners of the Whisper White card stock using the Envelope Punch Board!

Paper Loop Decorations

Today, I have some cute Paper Loop Decorations that I have made with some retired Stampin’ Up! products, but I have a link below for our current DSPs that will only be available until 2 January, so get in quick.

They are so pretty and more flower-like than many other tutorials out there, which are mainly snowflakes shapes.  I made these for my close friends who catch up most Fridays for coffee!

I got my inspiration from Dawn Griffiths and you can see her tutorial here.

A sugar hit for Boxing Day!

What a busy Christmas Day we had with all the family and extended family coming to our house to celebrate. I love seeing all the kids, cousins and our newest member, Conor who is 5 weeks old, join us! It is a time for no one being excluded and I love that everyone came who we had invited. The relaxed atmosphere and everyone helping themselves and feeling comfortable, made my day.

I can now share with you a couple of the kids gifts for my nieces and nephews. As they are getting older and they have everything they need, I find it difficult to buy for them, so we give them each a gift card. But this year, I wanted to make it a bit different to the usual gift card holder or just putting it in an envelope with a card, so I found these glass jars, placed the gift card inside and filled them up with lollies. I mean, what kid doesn’t love some extra sugar on Christmas Day, right?!!!

Gift Card Ideas for Christmas Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.jpg

To decorate the tops, I tied some ribbon around each one and added a monogram of their name (luckily they are all different initials) in glimmer paper, with a starburst punch of Christmas DSP and a circle die cut of coordinating card. How beautiful do they look?
