Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Melon Mambo!!!  This was one of the first colours I purchased through Stampin Up almost 6 years ago, I just love it.

This card uses the Needlepoint Nook suite of products from the upcoming Occasions catalogue, which will be available to purchase in January 2019. If you would like to get these earlier, you can join my team and purchase them in December (one of the perks of being a demonstrator)!

I have used Melon Mambo, Mango Melody and Pool Party as my colour combination.

I love when a stamp set has coordinating framelits, it makes it so much easier than fussy cutting images. I also love the faux stitching die used as the background on the Pool Party card, don’t you?!!!

On the inside I’ve added the sentiment in Pool Party ink and I can think of many recipients I could give this card too at this moment in time. I love the mixed fonts; it gives it a little something extra!

Colour Creations: Lovely Lipstick in a Beautiful Bouquet

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Lovely Lipstick and this is my photo inspiration. How gorgeous are the colours of these flowers?! My dear friends gave me this following a couple of weeks of poor health and they certainly cheered me up!

What Stampin’ Up! colours do you see?  Apart from Lovely Lipstick, I see Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape!

I was so inspired by these flowers that I had to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with coordinating Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies!

There is very little stamping on this card, only the sentiment and the Green flowers. Everything else is die cut using the framelits and glued to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive. I did add some Wink of Stella to the bow!

Blog Hop, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Colour Creations: Highland Heather in Abstract

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Highland Heather!!! This is a new colour this year and it is very pretty.

My first thought was, “oh what the heck will I feature?” and so I starred at all of my stamp sets for ages. I selected Abstract Impressions, as I haven’t used it very much but I adore the Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies that are part of the bundle saving 10%.

My colour combination is:

I glued the layers of Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather together then ran it through the Big Shot with the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the flower images onto whisper white card. The Grapefruit Grove I stamped off once before stamping, as I wanted a softer look. The Highland Heather is stamped in full strength. I then cut the banner at the bottom with paper snips. This was glued to the embossed layers.

The features across the centre has a Highland Heather banner, some Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim. The Vellum die cut with the large floral die and some Gold Metallic Thread sits behind the purple banner. Then I added the die cut butterfly with glue and added a ribbon bow to finish it off. I also added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls across the white banner.

Here’s a close-up so you can see all those layers!

With so much going on with this card, I didn’t think it needed a sentiment, as it would take away the butterfly focal point. What do you think?

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.

Blog Hop, Challenges, feminine, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Colour Challenge Blog Hop: Pink!

October-blog-hop-Think Pink.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the colour pink. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative with the various shades of pink that Stampin’ Up! offer in our collection of 53 different colours available.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from my good friend, Sharon Davern. 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 I am using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with heat embossing and watercolouring. With October being Breast Cancer awareness month, this was the perfect stamp set to use!

 I stamped the image multiple times with Versamark ink, applied White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Then I used the AquaPainter to apply water and some ink starting with Lovely Lipstick at the top and Flirty Flamingo at the bottom until they mixed in the centre. Once these dried, I added a wash of Smoky Slate ink over the entire background.

Blog Hop- Pink! Ribbon of Courage Watercolouring Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

The sentiment is heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. Look at that gorgeous Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around 3 times and tied in a bow with a small piece of Gold mini sequin trim!

I adore this sentiment for the inside of the card.

My second project is very much a girly card, using the stamp set, Flourishing Phrases and lots of “Stella”!

Can you see the Wink of Stella on the flower and leaves? It is also around the edges of the sentiment! Oh yes, I really do love my “Stella”!!! I also added some small pearl jewels for an extra feminine touch.

This is all I have done on the inside of this card, as I’m not sure whether it will be used for a wedding card, special big ‘0’ birthday or something else as yet. When I know, I can add the appropriate sentiment.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Granny Apple Green!!!

I have paired it with Mango Melody and Poppy Parade for this card with the Tropical Chic bundle and coordinating designer paper.

Colour Creations Blog Hop Granny Apple Green in Tropical Chic Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

I die cut the leaf image in Granny Apple Green card and placed some vellum behind it to soften the background designer paper pattern. The flowers were inked with Mango Melody and then I used a sponge dauber to add some Poppy Parade around the edges before stamping onto white card.

Look at that gorgeous textured weave ribbon bow, so pretty!

Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Mother's Day, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

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).

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

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.

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!!!

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

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.
