A Little Note with Butterfly Gala

Today’s card uses the Butterfly Gala Bundle and the stunning Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder with some Sale-a-bration products; Botanical Butterfly DSP & the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack! These can be selected during January – March 2019 with each $90+ order.

I love Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White together. It is a stunning combination.

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

Just check out that Botanical Butterfly DSP. It is just so pretty and I think this piece is my favourite in the pack. By using a small strip of it like this down one side of the card, you can make plenty of cards with one sheet!

I added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly for some added shine. A piece of the Organdy ribbon was placed behind the circles for a little more interest and texture.

On the inside, I added the simple sentiment which can be used for many occasions, and a couple more of the smaller butterflies.

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.

Beauty Abounds in bright bold colours!

Today, I share a card that uses some new products from the Occasions catalogue, Beauty Abounds Bundle.

Beauty Abounds with Stampin Up Embossing Mats by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

What do you think of this colour palette; Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Melon Mambo? I think it is gorgeous!!!! The above photo looks a little dark (sorry about that) and the Melon Mambo butterflies look more like Lovely Lipstick… oops, bad photography.

Beauty Abounds with Stampin Up Embossing Mats by Kate Morgan Australia 2019..JPG

I used the Embossing Mats with the large butterflies die and ran it through the Big Shot with the Highland Heather Heather cardstock. Then I die cut the Melon Mambo butterflies die and glued it with Tombo Multipurpose over the top.

The bubbles were stamped off once before stamping on the Highland Heather cardstock for a lighter colour.

I added some of the Glitter Enamel dots for some sparkle and they really gave it a gorgeous, bright, lift of colour.

On the inside, I simply stamped the image in Coastal Cabana ink ad coloured the flowers with the Wink of Stella.

Colour Creations: Mint Macaron for Easter Greetings with Jemima & her Fable Friends

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.

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!

Oh deer, Vanilla & Gold!

Today, is the last day of school for 2018 for my girls and the final day of primary school for my eldest daughter :0  It has been a big week, with her Graduation night on Tuesday evening and half day of school today to end the year.

Anyway, I have another Christmas card for you before my in-laws arrive tomorrow for the start of our Christmas celebrations. This one is simply some DSP, Gold Foil and the Detailed Deer die cut.

All is Bright DSP & Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Australia. Christmas 2018.JPG

The sentiment is stamped on strips of card with Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder applied and set with the heat tool. Then I cut the words up and added with dimensionals. These are quite simple and you could mass produce them with not too much trouble.

Colour Creations: Melon Mambo in Needlepoint

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

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!

Sketch Challenge for our last Art with Heart Blog Hop for 2018!

Blog Hop Card Sketch Nov 18

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring a card sketch. We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on this sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share your projects with us!

Blog-hop-sketch

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from our hop organiser, 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 first project tonight uses the stamp set, Enjoy Life with a technique called the Floating Window. The card base is Tranquil Tide with a Square die cut out of the front. I placed a small piece of Berry Burst Metallic Edged Ribbon, cut on angles, below the square to act a bit like a window shelf.

Enjoy Life 2018 Handmade Card using Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia

On the inside of the card, I used my D size clear block and tapped it onto the Pool Party Inkpad, then spritzed it with some water and stamped it onto the Whisper White card for a cool watercolour effect. You must wait for this to dry before stamping the images over the top in Stazon Black ink and the female image in Berry Burst ink. By using the Stamparatus, I could then keep the figure in the same position to be able to ink the window sheet in the exact same place so it lays over the top of the image on the inside of the card when you open and close it.

Enjoy Life 2018 Handmade Card using Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia.

A piece of window sheet is stamped with Stazon Black ink with the grass and the female image only.  Using the Stamparatus, I could get a nice dark image, by re-inking the stamps a couple of times. You may be able to see the two images layered in this photo!

My second project is a quick Christmas card, using some of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper with some Frost White Shimmer Paint sponged over the top. The sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink and silver embossing powder applied, then heat set with a heat tool. I also added a square of Silver Foil and some Silver Glimmer cut with the Triple Banner Punch.

Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

Dry Embossed Christmas Card using Stampin Up Dashing Deer & Joyous Noel by Kate Morgan Australia Christmas 2018..JPG

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

Dry Embossed Christmas Card using Stampin Up Dashing Deer & Joyous Noel by Kate Morgan, Australia Christmas 2018

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.
