Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Grapefruit Grove!!! This is one of the current 2018-2020 In Colours.

I just adore this Petal Promenade Designer Series paper and using the black card, makes it even more dramatic!

How beautiful does it look with the Delicate Lace Edgelit down the right hand side?!!

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set was perfect for the sentiment and the flowers stamped in Grapefruit Grove. The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was the perfect embellishment to tie it all together.

I added another strip of the designer paper on the inside which shows through the delicate lace edgelit when the card is closed.

Red Roses are so delightful

Today’s card is a very simple project using Stampin’ Up!s Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits, Petals & more!

This card does not have a sentiment on it as yet, but it could be used for so many different occasions; Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Easter, the options are endless!

Petal Palette & Tin Tile TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

The Real Red card base is embossed using the Big Shot and the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The flowers are stamped onto Shimmery White card with Memento Black ink and coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I find it much easier to colour them first before cutting them out! I added some dimensionals to the back of the die cut and then some of the Copper Metallic Thread before placing onto the front of the card (even my nails match the card, lol).

The 1/8″ solid Real Red ribbon at the top was wrapped around the card. A tip here is to start tying the knot, but before completing the bow, place a glue dot under the join to help hold it tight and in place, then finish to tie the bow! It really does help in getting that perfect bow to sit nicely, rather than adding a bow separately.

The inside is decorated simply with another of the smaller flower bud images and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Gorgeous Grape!!!

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

Colour Creations Blog Hop Gorgeous Grape Jar of Love Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Frame with Interchangeable ‘O’

Today I am sharing the project we made at my class on Thursday and the ladies had a great time making them. I allowed them to make up to 5 each and choose their own colours. Below are all the examples I had for them to choose from!

I got the frames from KMart and started by removing the glass. I cut a piece of Whisper White card to 8″x6″ and scored it across the page at every 1/2″. Not sure if you can see that in the photo? I placed this back in the frame, then the glass and the other pieces that it came with before putting the backing piece in. Having the scored lines allowed me to line up the H, M, E, leaving a space for the interchanging ‘O’. These were die cut using the Large Letters Framelits dies. Each of the ‘O’s were die cut using either the Layering Circle Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits or the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. Behind the ‘O’ is a magnet glued to the white card. Behind each ‘O’ I have added some Magnet tape.

Under each photo below I will list the decorating products and colours used.

Happy birthday, Gorgeous

I made this card for a dear friend who was a work colleague for many years, but left a couple of years ago. It was her 60th birthday which also happened to fall on Father’s Day, so happy birthday Sarah!

Beautiful You & Garden Impressions Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018..JPG

Did you see the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the front? It is from the new Holiday catalogue, but it looks fab on this non-Christmassy card. It will be one we can use on lots of different projects, thanks Stampin’ Up!

The lady is stamped in Petal Pink ink and her dress is coloured with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen and the hat was dipped in some Melon Mambo ink to pick up a bit of coordinating colour! The sentiment is stamped over the top afterwards in Melon Mambo ink so it didn’t smudge.

As you open this card, it reveals more of the Garden Impressions Designer Paper which coordinates so well with this elegant lady, don’t you think?!! I can see her at a wonderful garden party!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. It is perfect for the fabulous Sarah.

Colour Creations: Coastal Cabana with Bella & Friends

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Coastal Cabana!!! I have to say, I was so excited that it returned with the colour revamp this year. I just adore it ♥

I got inspiration from Tina Rappe for this card, but changed it up to suit our Australian paper sizes. I also made one for my daughter’s 12th birthday with the Pretty Kitty which you can see here. This was one of the cards I taught at my last card class too!

Today I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP which is a stack of 6″ x 6″. This pack doesn’t actually have Coastal Cabana as one of its colours, but I thought this coordinated quite well anyway.

The front panel is embossed using the Basket Weave TIEF. I thought it was perfect for this card, as I imagine most puppies having a basket to sleep in!

The puppy is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils; Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Real Red then used the Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colour.

I had a small strip of the Designer Paper left over, so I added it the centre layer where I will add my message. The ribbon is a retired one from a Sale-a-bration freebie from a few years back!

Lip Balm Box

Hello Crafters,

Today, I have a cute Lip Balm Box that The Paper Pixie shared on her blog on 30 July. You can get the instructions here. I made one to just see how easy it was, and yes, Julie was right!

Lip Balm Holder for Happy Birthday Gifts by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018.JPG

I have used Highland Heather card for the base, some retired DSP and the Tropical thilnlits die for the leaf. The Itty Bitty Greetings, Happy Birthday stamped and added with mini dimensionals for some added height.

I think these would make fantastic party loot… pity I didn’t come across it a little earlier for my own kids parties!

Petals & More Memory Keeping

Hello Crafters,

As you know, July 30 – August 30 is a busy month for us and we have 2 birthdays done and another to go just in our immediate family!

Here is the Project Life page I did for my eldest who turned 12 using up some of the retired Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. It is is important to me to record these milestones and my kids often get out my albums and browse through them. They love looking back on the memories they have made so far ♥

The Large Number Framelits dies are also retired, but I will forever use them for my scrapbooking and memory keeping albums. Here I have cut them out with Black Glimmer paper.

I will share some more pages soon of my 9 year olds special day!

Do you create a scrapbook album or a form of Memory Keeping for your family to look back on in years to come? Life is too short and I love to have these memories for the future generations.

Colour Creations: Cherry Cobbler

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cherry Cobbler!!!

I am using this colour combination with the Cake Soiree stamp set and coordinating dies.

I Gold Embossed the cake and the edges of the Gorgeous Grape layer.

Colour Creation with Cherry Cobbler using Stampin Up Cake Soiree by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.jpg

The sentiment on top of the cake is also embossed, but with White Embossing Powder. The photo doesn’t do the cake justice, because the gold embossing looks very dull, when in fact it is quite shiny. I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers in the 3 coordinating colours and the white pencil to add some highlight. The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in full colour and stamped off once for the lighter shade.

Birthday, Flowers, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Unicorns for a special birthday girl!

Hello Crafters,

Yesterday it was my little girls birthday and she turned 9! She has this fascination like every other 9 year old girl, with unicorns, so check out this card I made especially for her. She loved it! I got loads of inspiration from various Pinterest pages.

Unicorn birthday card using Stampin Up Tropical Chic by Kate Morgan Australia.

The Tropical Chic bundle was perfect for the flowers and I stamped them in the gorgeous bright colours of the inkpads shown in the image above onto Shimmery White card for that added sparkle. The coordinating dies made it super easy to cut them out.

The eyes I cheated and printed off the internet. I have to admit, I did try and failed twice trying to draw them by hand, so I went to the trusty old computer and found these cute whimsical eyelashes! The ears I cut out by hand too as was the Gold Glimmer horn, but these were much easier to do. I added some Wink of Stella to the pink centres of the ears.

Unicorn birthday card using Stampin Up Tropical Chic by Kate Morgan, Australia.

The two small hearts were punch from a heart border punch from my retired stock, but it’s so handy for these types of projects. The sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and inked with Powder Pink ink before cutting with the Classic Label punch and trimmed at one end. I added it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
