Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 46th colour; Smoky Slate.

I have gone with a Monotone card using this gorgeous Wonderful Romance stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Floral Framelits (both products are retiring on 3 June unless sold out prior) so make sure you add them to your shopping cart now!

The card base is Smoky Slate with a layer of Whisper White with 1″ panels in the above colours.

Then I stamped the images in Stazon ink and used the AquaPainter to watercolour the images with ink refills. I also added Wink of Stella to the flowers and those tiny leaves. I love those black embossed die cut leaves behind for a dramatic effect!

I added some bling with basic rhinestones to the centre of each flower!

Colour Creations: Shaded Spruce for a Tropical Chic Thank you!

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop  featuring our 45th colour; Shaded Spruce. Wow, can you believe there are only 5 more colours to go?!

How cool is this tropical card using lots of the Tropical Escape DSP, some simple stamping and some embossing to add some shine!

That large leaf is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and then I used a sponge dauber to add some extra tone with Shaded Spruce ink around the edges before stamping it onto some White card.

Tropical Chic for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

How beautiful does that copper embossed flower look on the Petal Pink card stock? It looks even better in real life, as the card stock has similar tones! I have popped these stamped pieces up on dimensionals.

and because that copper embossed flower looked so good, I did another one for the inside with some more DSP!

I love that Braided Linen Thread which is super soft and very easy to tie in a knot.

On the inside of the card I added the simple sentiment, which is so true for why I have made this card. It’s going to be one of the many thank you cards I am needing to make at the moment to send to people who have been so generous in helping me regain my independence.

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

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.

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: Real Red Fancy Fold with Tea Together

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 42nd colour; Real Red.

Today’s card was one of the projects at my recent craft class. The front of the card is stamped in Versamark ink multiple times, with Copper Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool.

The square window is die cut and the Story Label Punch is used to cut the punched piece behind the sentiment from this scrap square piece of card stock. The Classic Label punch was used with Copper Foil and the sentiment is stamped on White card in Real Red ink and punched out with the circle punch.

Tea Together Mother's Day card for Colour Creations Blog Hop Stampin Up Occasions 2019 by Kate Morgan Australia.

When you open the card, the tea pot is glued to a square hinge that moves as though it’s pouring tea into the cup below! The teapot is stamped using the Mirror Image technique, by using the Stamparatus to stamp the image 3 times onto the Silicone mat, then placing some white card in carefully and stamping the image down again. Carefully remove the card, turn it over and you have the image reversed on the back! Now you can die cut it out using the coordinating framelits.

Here is another version in Night of Navy & White emboss!

I cased this idea from Cheryl Algie who did a video using a different stamp set Very Vintage.

Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 In Colours

I adore the Fable Friends stamp set and just had to use it for my Easter projects. This card is created using the paper piecing technique. This is where you stamp onto some pretty designer paper and then cut sections of it out and glue to another stamped image. You can see I’ve done it with the ducks jacket and top of her hat! I used the pretty Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. I love the Rectangle stitched framelits and the Silver Glimmer edging was cut with the Decorative Border Punch. The sentiment is created using the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written framelits (purchase these together as the bundle to save 10%).

Easter Blog Hop with Fable Friends Occasions 2019 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up, Australia..jpg

Here’s a closer look!  I used my Blender Pen with the inkpads to add some Gray Granite to her feathers, Pineapple Punch for her beak and feet and Powder Pink for the hat and ribbon around her neck. The grass is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist and then I sponged some of the same colour using a sponge dauber. I also did this for the sky with Balmy Blue ink.

My next project is a Divided Gift Box with 3 sections in it and a window in the top to entice you inside!  The tag was simply created using the Well Said bundle as used in the first project. I had to tie some of this gorgeous variegated ribbon around it too.

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?

Colour Creations: Powder Pink & watercolour in Tea Together

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Our Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop features our 40th colour; Powder Pink. This is one of the In Colours that will retire in June, so make sure you purchase anything Powder Pink now while they are still available!

I have had this stamp set, Tea Together with the coordinating Tea Time Framelits dies for a little while now but this is my first time inking it up. Why did I wait so long???!!!

My colour palette: Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam & Fresh Fig

The images were all stamped with Versamark ink on Watercolour Paper, Gold Emboss Powder added and Heat set. Then I coloured using the AquaPainter and ink from the stamp pads. I did all this and let them dry before die cutting each of the images out.

Mother's Day Card using Stampin Up Tea Together, Watercolouring by Kate Morgan, Australia..jpg

I embossed the Fresh Fig layer with the Tin Tile Embossing folder before using the Versamark pad around each of the edges, just swiping gently across the pad then dipping each edge in the Gold Emboss Powder & heat set. I also did this on the Powder Pink layer inside the card!

I sprinkled some extra gold emboss powder gently over the embossed Fresh Fig card and heat set it from behind so the powder didn’t blow away and stayed where I needed it.

I gold embossed the doily as well and placed some Gold Metallic Thread behind the tea pot, which is adhered with dimensionals.

I love the watercolour effect of this rose, super pretty.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and Gold embossed it also. Do you think I have enough Gold??!!!

Our AWHT Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop features our 39th colour; Poppy Parade. This Wishing You Well card was  one of the cards we made in my class on Saturday. Check out how vibrant it looks against the Tin Tile Embossed black background!!!!

I know I am probably pushing the boundaries in the use of Poppy Parade, but I think it is this pop of colour in adding Poppy Parade that makes all the difference to this card!

Lasting Lily Stampin Up Saleabration 2019 Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia

The Lasting Lily stamp set is one of the Sale-a-bration items you can choose for free with a $90 order this month. Also available for March only, are the coordinating framelits to cut out these images, making life so much easier.

LILY

The flowers are inked in Mango Melody and then I used a sponge dauber with Poppy Parade ink and gently added ink to the edges of the stamp before stamping onto the paper. It gives such a wonderful two tone depth to the image.

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 38th colour; Pool Party.

My colour combination: Pool Party, Highland Heather and Whisper White

Beauty Abounds for Pool Party Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.JPG

The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used on the Pool Party and Whisper White layers and I left the Highland Heather layer flat. The Rectangle Stitched Framelits were the perfect fit for this image which is stamped in Pool Party ink. I coloured the flowers and leaves using a Blender Pen & coordinating inkpads for a more subtle, feminine look.
