AWH Blog Hop featuring new Annual Catalogue items!!

Blog Hop May 2019.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new 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, Kimberly Hern. 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!

Tonight I am focusing on the Floral Essence Bundle: Floral Essence Stamp Set & Perennial Flower Punch. I am also using the coordinating Perennial Essence DSP, Perennial Essence 12″x 12″ Vellum & Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

Would you believe, the Leaf Punch also coordinates perfectly with this stamp set!!!

I got out 1 sheet of each design of the DSP and cut each one up into 6 equal pieces measuring 10cm x 14.3cm, so I could make the most of the stunning Monet inspired designs.

I made all of these cards to gift to my mum for Mother’s Day. She just loves receiving my cards to use for her own gifts.

This first card I used a base of Petal Pink and created the frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I adhered it using the Foam Adhesive Strips. I stamped the flower and leaves on the vellum and punched them out. A tip with stamping on the vellum: there is a smooth side and slightly rougher side. Make sure you stamp on the rough side for better results.

The flower I also used my stylus tip of the Take Your Pick Tool to create the white lines, resting it on the Pierce Mat.

Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss & Petal Pink feature in this one and those flowers were stamped and fussy cut.

This card uses Blueberry Bushel and I think it is my favourite of all of these. Pity I couldn’t find my Embossing Buddy before I stamped and embossed the sentiment 😦

Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry features with a Versamark stamped sentiment which is heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Here are some of those flowers close up. How cute are those fluffy floral centers?!!!

You may think these cards are fairly simple, but I sure didn’t want to cover up that stunning DSP!

I have one more card using a few of the new 2019-2021 In Colours. Here I stamped off the larger solid flower in Seaside Spray, then stamped the smaller flower over the top in full strength with Rococo Rose for the centres. The leaves are stamped off in Pretty Peacock ink and then I used the Wink of Stella to colour them, lightly blending some of the ink colour. The 1/2″ scallop Line Ribbon in Rococo Rose was wrapped across the front. I folded some extra ribbon into a flower shape and added a Perennial Essence Center on top.

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 47th colour; So Saffron.

I have gone with a patchwork design this week, using up some soon to retire Designer series paper, Garden Impressions.

Patchwork card using Around the Corner & Garden Impressions DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

I was inspired by a bag that my gorgeous Mother-in-law made for me recently. Isn’t is stunning?!!! I’m such a lucky girl.

Patchwork Bag for Craft with Kate.JPG

I have used the Around the Corner stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP. It is just some simple squares and cutting to put it all together. The Night of Navy ink looks fab with So Saffron!

The background of the card base, I actually embossed with the Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing folder through the Big Shot.

On the inside I added some Whisper White card and cut a couple of squares of the DSP and then cut them in half again on the diagonal to glue into each corner.

Tomorrow I fly out to New Zealand for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live Event in Auckland; a 3 day event full of fun and catching up with my other demonstrator friends, who are like family to me and I can’t wait!

But in the meantime, we still have a Colour Creations blog hop to share with you and tonight we are featuring our 43rd colour; Rich Razzleberry and it is one of my favourites.  

I have used the stunning, Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Annual catalogue and coordinated it with the Tea Together stamp set.

Colour Creations Blog Hop Rich Razzleberry with Stampin Up Tea Together, Well Written, Watercolouring by Kate Morgan Australia Occasions 2019.

The tea cup and flower images were stamped lightly in Sahara Sand ink onto Whisper White card and then I coloured them using the Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.

The four tiny Rich Razzleberry die cut flowers and the sentiment have Wink of Stella on them, can you see it? Then I placed a small Pearl into the centre of each flower. I also added some of the Velvet Ribbon behind the Tea Cup.

Colour Creations: Pumpkin Pie makes for a glorious sunset

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 41st colour; Pumpkin Pie.

As we near the end of March it also means we near the end of Sale-a-bration and for you to earn FREE product. So don’t let this be you!

000 Saleabration ending soon.jpg

Today’s project was inspired by Michelle Zindorf from Ohio who is the absolute master of colouring. I admire her work and try to recreate similar effects, but I have a long way to go!!!

Pumpkin Pie is certainly one of my least used colours and so it stumped me when it came time to use it for this blog hop, although I do love a glorious sunset and so that is where the idea began. I also hadn’t inked up this Happy Tails stamp set nor used the coordinating Dog Builder punch, so perfect time to get it out and get creating.

Happy Tails Dog Stampin Up Sponging by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

The background is created by sponging Mango Melody at the top, then some Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I used my AquaPinter with some Garden Green ink and swiped it across the centre of the card to create the horizon. I then sponged from the bottom with Garden Green ink and swished up with the sponge dauber to get the grassy effect.

Happy Tails Dog Builder PunchStampin Up Sponging by Kate Morgan Australia

The dog is punched from basic black card and I used a HB pencil to draw the lines for the shadow. Don’t look too closely at my wobbly hands LOL

On the inside I sponged the edges and stamped the dog house in Pumpkin Pie and the Mango Melody solid layer is stamped off once for a lighted tone.

The paw prints were not going to appear as part of the card, but guess what… I got a couple of tiny smudge marks and these paws are there to cover them up!!! LOL. Have you ruined a card at the final step too, and needed to embellish, rather than starting over?

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!!!!

So Hoppy Together Frogs by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia..jpg

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?

So Hoppy Together Frogs by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

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.

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.

Bev lives 6 hours drive away from us and so I thought this was the perfect sentiment for the inside of the card xx

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.
