Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 36th colour; Petal Pink.

This colour has more of an apricot tone and it is one of the many colours in the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I have gone with the Bargello Technique again to create the background. You may have seen me use this Technique in last Friday’s post.

My Colour Combination is: Petal Pink, Berry Burst, Old Olive

I die cut a Vellum oval and embossed it with the Needlepoint Elements Framelit. I did this so it didn’t totally hide that gorgeous Bargello background.

Colour Creations: Pear Pizzazz for an Amazing Life

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 35th colour; Pear Pizzazz.

I am using the Amazing Life Stamp set with the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. The card base is Pear Pizzazz, stamped with the same ink with the floral image. The centres of each of these flowers has some Wink of Stella for some shine!

amazing life & floral romance sdsp by kate morgan stampin up australia, occasions 2019

I die cut the stitched rectangle and stamped the images. I added the two strips of DSP then the white rectangle to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. The flower in the corner was stamped with Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz card and some of the DSP in Petal Pink ink, then fussy cut out. These were added with a dimensional.

The open words “cake” and “YAY” have some Wink of Stella applied to colour them in!

On the inside of the card, I simply stamped the 3-tiered birthday cake and sentiment. The flame has some Wink of Stella, but it doesn’t really show in the photos.

Colour Creations: Pacific Point – Butterfly Gatefold card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 34th colour; Pacific Point.

I’m using three of the Sale-a-bration items, Botanical Butterfly DSP, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack & Hello Cupcake stamp set which can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I have also used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Duet Butterfly punch!

butterfly gala for colour creations pacific point occasions stampin up by kate morgan australia 2019

Starting with a piece of cardstock measuring 8″ x 5⅞”, score the long edge at 2″ & 6″. Fold in to create the gatefold! I glued two strips of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the front. The butterflies are stamped in Memento Black ink for the outline and Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist to colour the wings. As you can see below, my Wink of Stella had a good workout too! Oh how I love my “Stella”!!!

The Layering Circle Framelits were used to cut both of the circles and once I joined the belly band together, I covered the join with scallop circle. I  wrapped some of the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon, joining it in the centre of the circle. Add the Green circle over the top to hide the join and them add the butterfly to the centre with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White card with a strip of DSP and stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink.

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 33rd colour; Old Olive.

I cased today’s card from page 18 of the Sale-a-bration brochure. This is a really great way of getting ideas when using a new stamp set!

Lasting Lily pg18.JPG

My card base is actually Thick Whisper White which I have glued to an A5 piece of Old Olive card stock. But first, I embossed it with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also die cut the large circle and stamped the Lily stems behind onto the white card. I wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the Old Olive card, tied it in a bow to the right before gluing the entire piece to the card base.

I stamped the lilies in Daffodil Delight onto spare white card and fussy cut around them before adding them with dimensionals.

lasting lily saleabration stampin up by kate morgan australia 2019.

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card and used the Triple Banner punch on each end, and added with dimensionals. The inside of the card is simply stamped, but I did fussy cut the lily so it was the same as the front of the card!

2019 Occasions Catalogue Blog Hop

Blog Hop_January 2019.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects using product from the Occasions catalogue. The Occasions catalogue is current now until 3 June 2019. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today (along with the Sale-a-bration brochure). Did you know that Sale-a-bration is also a great time to join our fabulous team. Ask anyone on the blog hop if you’d like more details. 

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 projects tonight use the Floral Romance Suite. Card 1 uses the Wonderful Romance stamp set, Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The card base is Fresh Fig with a piece of the printed vellum adhered using Tombo Multipurpose Glue and lightly sponging it onto the back of the vellum so the glue doesn’t show through. Some Whisper White card was glued on the inside with a  2″ strip of the same printed vellum glued on the right hand side so it shows through the front of the card.

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

The main floral image was stamped with Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card. I applied White Embossing Powder and heat set it. I lightly coloured the entire image with my White Watercolour pencil first, then used my Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour over the top! I added some wink of Stella to the flowers. Some extra die cuts of the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow were cut and glued behind. A small basic pearl was added to the centres of the flowers. I tied a small piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon around the stems.

My next project uses the same suite, but with a totally different, softer look!

The Petal Pink card lightens it up and that gorgeous Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds so much interest. The leaves and flowers are fussy cut from the piece of printed vellum and glued behind or on top of the Whisper White oval with the sentiment.

The sentiment is stamped in Fresh Fig. I added one of the Floral Romance Wax Seals and some die cuts in Petal Pink for some contrast interest to the green leaves.

And my last project tonight is a gift purse with a belly band!

This uses an A5 piece of card, so you can make two purses from one sheet of A4 card, plus some off cuts you may have lying around.

The sides have the accordion fold so you can fit more cash inside!

Colour Creations: Night of Navy – Incredible Like You

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 32nd colour; Night of Navy.

Night of Navy.PNG

My card tonight uses the colour combination: Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay & Mossy Meadow.

We received this stamp set, Incredible Like You, at OnStage as an all attendee giveaway and I really wasn’t sure about it. But, the only thing to do is open it up, find some coordinating colours and stamp and it turned out okay!

Incredible Like You Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

I do love the Flirty Flamingo/Calypso Coral combination of the flowers. Don’t they look great?!! I stamped them on Whisper White and fussy cut them. The bottom one I added with dimensionals rather than glue and I placed a small piece of the Flirty Flamingo ribbon behind it.

Incredible Like You Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019..JPG

On the inside I added the sentiment in Night of Navy and some more flowers in the corner.

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.

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!

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.

Fable Friends, Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019..JPG

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.

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.

Beauty Abounds in Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2018..JPG

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!
