Stampin' Up!

Sailing Home in Feminine style

Tonight I have something a little different that is using the Sailing Home Bundle. I think most people tend to create masculine projects with this bundle, but I was determined to try something feminine. My sister has recently moved to Paynesville, a small seaside town in Gippsland, and it got me thinking about all the sail boats on the canals down there.

I also entered this into a colour challenge over at Colour Inkspirations on Facebook and I placed in the Top 5 picks (equal second)!!!

Colour Inkspirations Top5 Badge.jpg

The colours are: Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, White and Gold Foil.

Feminine Handmade card using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle for #CI58 by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.

I actually used Shimmery White card stock and did a Blushing Bride Watercolour wash in the background to get that gorgeous shimmery look.

I also used the large seaweed die to stamp the background. Can you see it? I just placed the die onto a clear block with a glue dot and tapped it gently onto the ink pad before stamping onto the card. What a cool effect!

The Crumb Cake frame is created using the new Heirloom Frames and 3D Embossing folders. I sponged over the top afterwards with a dauber and crumb cake ink to give it a little more definition.

Is there a new technique or product here that you would like to try?

Easy Daisy Slider Card

Tonight’s Slider card is very easy to create without too much fuss and measurements and link are below.

I am using the Daisy Lane suite for my card. The stamp set and mini daisy punch are available as a bundle saving you 10% and there is a special offer below so make sure you keep reading to take advantage of the 11 free tutorials.

Easy Slider Card using Stampin Up Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

I’m using 3 of my favourite new In Colours; Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.

The fern image is stamped in Purple Posy on Seaside Spray cardstock. The medium daisy is all Seaside Spray (ink & card) and the smaller daisies are stamped in the 3 colours on white card and fussy cut. The leaf punch is used with vellum for a softer look.

The circle punch was used to punch the top of the card so you can pull the white card up to reveal the message inside.

Of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the main daisy and over the Smile sentiment.

Water-colouring with Pigment Sprinkles and Daisy Lane

Wow, look at this bright background I’ve created with the new Pigment Sprinkles?!!!

Pigment Sprinkles are watercolour pigment crystals in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. Mix them with water to make watercolour backgrounds and washes and use them for other water-colouring techniques.  You get 6 jars – 1 of each of these colours: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo.

I used the new Fluid 100 water colour paper (amazing quality) and I went it quite liberally with the Stampin’ Spritzer before sprinkling some of the Pigment Sprinkles on top. TIP: make sure you are light handed as a little goes a long, long way…. jut ask me how I know?!!! Then sit back and watch the instant magic happen! You can also spritz a little more water on if you want a more watercolour look (like the daisies).

Daisy Lane stamp set & Pigment Sprinkles, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2019

The daisies were also created using this same technique but in 2 colours for each size. Allow the water-colour paper to dry completely before trying to punch them out.  The same with the background piece. I actually used my heat tool to quicken up the drying process as I was a little impatient and wanted to keep going. I stamped the stem in Gorgeous Grape ink so it would stand out on the bright background 😉

Use a bone folder to help curve the petals of the daisies before gluing to the card; just gives a bit more life to them.

How gorgeous are those Perennial Essence Centres? So fussy and they are nice and bright to match perfectly with this card.

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Here we are at the end of the AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hops showcasing every Stampin’ Up! colour, ending with the 5th new In Colour; Purple Posy.

This is a centre step fold card using the Floral Essence Bundle (stamp set and punch) and Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

I love a bundle; not only does it save you 10% purchasing the 2 products together, but punch bundles make it very affordable and easy to use without the added expense of a die cutting machine.

and the inside looks like this:

Because this is the final Colour Creations blog hop, I’ve made a second card!

This one uses the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. The front of the card is quite simply stamped on whisper white cardstock, some Purple Tricolour ribbon wrapped around, layered on top of some Petal Pink card embossed with the Subtle dynamic TIEF on a Purple Posy card base.

Blog Hop: In Colours 2018-2021

Blog Hop InColour

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring In Colour theme. Check out the new 2019-2021 In Colours and lets not forget the current 2018-2020 In Colours.

If you would like a copy of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, 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 is a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbook page and each of the daisies [Daisy Lane stamp set] in one of the 10 current In Colours. I kept this page very simple in design as I wanted the colours to shine through. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder applied and heat set. I cut it in half with scissors, so I had an even balance above and below the photo. The centres of the daisies is silver glimmer paper and I love that sparkle!

My next project is a card using the Wonderful Moments stamp set and the Mosaic Mood DSP and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the image in Soft Suede as it’s not as harsh as the black ink which most people stamp images with.

Tip: when using Stampin’ Blends markers (alcohol markers) you can actually stamp your images using any of the Stampin’ Up! Classic inks (water based).

Mosaic Mood & Wonderful Moments for 60th Birthday by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

This card uses Terracotta Tile as the base and this colour is also in the Mosaic Mood designer papers. Did you see the scallop shaped DSP on the right? I cut around the scallop edge with Paper Snips for extra detail.

The Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers used are: Mint Macaron, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler.

My last project uses the Bird Ballad stamp set, Woven Threads designer series paper and the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing folder. The Frame is the new Seaside Spray card with a strip of Rococo Rose card behind layered with some Very Vanilla Scallop Lace Trim.

The birds are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and some Wink of Stella applied to the chest of each bird for added sparkle.

Floating Balloons

I shared this technique on Tuesday in the Terracotta Tile and Mosaic Mood DSP, and this one was a little easier that I taught at my last class.

We just used the Balloon Bouquet Punch in cardstock colours; Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point & Poppy Parade.

This was a lovely bright colour scheme to suite either feminine or masculine occasions. Wouldn’t any child love this one?!!

Once we had the balloons all stuck down, we covered them with the Wink of Stella for that gorgeous shimmer.

The sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set and inked in Pacific Point.

Colour Creations: Terracotta Tile Floating Frame

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Tonight’s AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop features Terracotta Tile, the 3rd of our new 2019-2021 In Colours.

This is the Floating Frame Technique that you may have seen everywhere, as it’s been the most popular technique since earlier this year (Google it and you’ll find loads of videos on how to make them).  I was also fortunate enough to have some fellow demonstrator team mates in Auckland early for OnStage Live who were able to purchase a roll of the Glad Press & Seal product to make these projects (it’s not easy to get here in Australia).

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019

I decided to fussy cut all the images of a sheet of the Mosaic Mood DSP one evening during our family movie time 🙂

I love the fact that we actually get 2 cards from this technique too!

Doesn’t it look effective?! I love this technique but make sure you have time and not be in a rush. I added some rhinestones and glitter enamel dots to the spaces for some extra sparkle and interest.

This second card doesn’t have a sentiment yet, as I will add the appropriate one at the right time.

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.

If you are going to have a go at this technique, be warned, you need to have loads of dimensionals and patience! Getting those backings off the dimensionals takes time, hehe.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set, inked with Terracotta Tile.

Mosaic Mood Masterpiece

When we were in New Zealand for the Stampin’ Up! conference, OnStage Live in April, this Specialty Designer Series paper, Mosaic Mood was an all attendee give-a-way and wow, you need to see it to appreciate its beauty. It has shiny accents just like mosaic tiles and it’s super pretty.

I was so tired the other night, I had no brain power to think about stamping and designing a card, so I at down and cut up 2 of the sheets of the Mosaic Mood paper into all the flowers, butterflies and hummingbirds to use later when I was ready and this is what I came up with.

Mosaic Mood & Woven Heirlooms Birthday card, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan

I embossed the Blushing Bride base card front with the Subtles Dynamic TIEF and then die cut the window with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies in Very Vanilla cardstock. I glued the flower image to the centre of the card and placed the frame over the top with Foam Adhesive Strips for height.

Mosaic Mood & Woven Heirlooms Birthday card, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan.

I stamped the sentiments in the new Terracotta Tile ink as it coordinates with this DSP!

I placed some more flowers that were cut from the edges of the paper and placed them in the corner. Make sure you don’t waste them by throwing them out, thinking they are not complete images, they are perfect for this reason!!!

Will you be adding this paper to your next order?
