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.

Bargello Technique with Fable Friends & All My Love DSP

Today, my card uses some left over strips from the Bargello Technique from an ATC card swap share I took part in during January with the Art With Heart Team.

How stunning is this colour combination of Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lpstick and White?!!!

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

I stamped the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set in Memento black ink and coloured her using Stampin’ Blends markers. I cut her out with paper snips and popped her up on dimensionals on the layering ovals. I added two little pearls to her coat. Isn’t she the cutest?!!!

The pearls in the top corner were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card. I adore this Lovely Lipstick ribbon which is part of the All My Love Combo pack.

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!

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.

Hello Beautiful, Butterfly Gala

Hi, if you follow my blog, you will be seeing loads of butterflies as this is one of my favourite suites in the Occasions catalogue. I also love how so many products coordinate with the Gingham Gala DSP, Gingham Gala adhesive backed Sequins, Organdy Ribbon Pack and the Botanical Butterfly DSP. It really does make card making so easy and takes the stress away and just allows you to create. This is the reason I became a demonstrator almost 6 years ago!

Butterfly Gala & Gingham Gala DSP Stampin Up Occasions Saleabration by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

The Stitched Rectangle Framelits dies are not really suited for our Australian card stock sizes, however, I love them and will try anything to make them work for us Aussies! As you can see, I cut a piece of Gingham Gala DSP to the same A5 card size and placed the framelit towards the top and cut it out. I glued this to my card base. I cut a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP and then cut it in half and placed it inside the frame. I used some of the Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon across the top and added a bow.

I stamped the butterflies, punched them out and added a sentiment to the top section of the card. I also added some sequins and then finished with Wink of Stella on the butterflies, including the ones on the DSP!

Masculine Origami Window Card

Today, I have a masculine card for you using the Classic Garage Designer series paper. I don’t have any of the other products from this suite, so I had to come up with a design using only the paper.

Classic Garage DSP & Butterlfy Gala Origami Window Masculine card Stampin Up Occasions by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

My colour combination is Tranquil Tide, Crushed Curry and Real Red.

classic garage dsp & butterlfy gala origami window masculine card stampin up occasions by kate morgan australia 2019.

The top section I used the Origami Window Fold and then layered it onto some coordinating colours as mat layers. The sentiments are from the Butterfly Gala stamp set stamped in Tranquil Tide ink. I love those Rectangle Stitched Framelits which I used on the front of the card and layered it over some of the Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon tide in a knot. Can you see the spine of the card where I threaded the ribbon through? I used the 1/2″ circle punch to make a small notch in the spine. This is a clever way of adding ribbon and when you look at the front of the card, you don’t even notice the punched notch!

On the inside I added a piece of Crushed Curry card and a small strip of the DSP down one side, then stamped the sentiment.

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.

Square Note card with Butterfly Gala

Today, I have a square notecard using the Butterfly Gala stamp set, coordinating Dual Butterfly punch & the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (can be earned free with a qualifying order!)

Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala DSP Stampin Up Occasions Saleabration Square card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019

I have also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies even though I have made a square card. You may be wondering how I did that? Well, I cut two pieces of DSP with the one framelit and then cut a third of the Butterfly piece from the bottom and two thirds of the Gingham Gala DSP from the top and joined them together. I then placed some of the Grapefruit Grove ribbon across the join!

Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala DSP Stampin Up Occasions Saleabration Square card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

I stamped the butterfly in black ink and used Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight to colour them before adding, you guessed it, Wink of Stella! I joined the two butterflies with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment onto the Gingham section with Black ink.

Amazing Life for this Birthday

Today, I have the small note card that we made at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event last November. It was one of the Make & Takes, but I didn’t get around to finishing it on the day… we may have been talking too much and catching up with friends!!!!

Amazing Life Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

It was just some basic stamping and colouring and the hardest part was die cutting the circles!

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.

Lasting Lily Saleabration Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

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!
