Ornate garden in black!

What inspires you?

That may sound like an odd question. But, stop and think about it.

Where do you get ideas from? What sparks the creative thoughts flowing? Have you been feeling in a slump lately?

With everything going on right now, I am sure that many are not feeling like their peppy selves or are maybe finding a hard time feeling “creative”.

Keep looking for that creative spark!

The good news is there is only 1 more sleep until the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue goes live and you can look at all those gorgeous pages of amazing and inspirational photos of new projects!

What are you most looking forward to seeing? I cannot wait to get the new In Color Inkpads!!!!

Tonight’s card features the Ornate Garden Suite of products. I stamped the large image on black card with Versamark ink and heat set it with White Emboss Powder.

Then I coloured the entire image with the White Chalk Marker and let it dry before colouring with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Doesn’t it give a cool effect?!!!

The Designer Paper is so colourful, I actually cut it about a third of the way down, flipped it over to reveal the other side and glued them to the card base. The white ribbon is wrapped around to cover the join! The image was then added with dimensionals.

On the inside, I placed another image in the bottom corner to carry the theme over.

Hello, Ornate Garden Suite

Tonight’s card was made for my mother in law to say Hello during this crazy time in isolation, using the new items from the upcoming Annual catalogue starting 3 June. However, these items are available now as an early release!

Ornate Garden SDSP

Ornate Garden card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and white emboss powder added and heat set. This sentiment is from the Seriously The Best stamp set which is retiring, along with the Leaf Punch 😦

Ornate Garden card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020.

On the inside, I just placed the simple sentiment and a flower image in the corner, leaving plenty of room for my message.

TIP: The Whisper White Seam Binding ribbon was a little too much for this card, so I simply coloured it with my Stampin’ Blends Marker to colour it Old Olive to match the card base!

Creative Showcase Sketch

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the May Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase May 2020 Sketch

Now let’s get started!

Today’s card uses the Ornate Garden Suite and the Peaceful Poppies Suite of
Products, all which will still be available in the new Annual catalogue starting 3 June!

Olive Balmy Navy White Flirty

The front of the Balmy Blue card base is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, before a layer of Old Olive card, die cut with the Ornate Layers dies. A Piece of DSP is added, long with other elements you can see.

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

This centre feature is the ornate style stamp set image stamped onto some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and die cut in a circle. I’ve coloured the image, gently in a dabbing motion so as not to ruin them, with Stampin’ Blends Markers. How pretty does it look?!!

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

On the inside I have the same image stamped on Whisper White card stock, coloured the same way and fussy cut. This is glued to the Champagne Foil Sheet, die cut with the gorgeous Ornate Layers dies. The Navy card is embossed with the new Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

But then you open it again to reveal the inside of the card!

How did I do that? The card consists of 2 standard card bases, but the Navy one is flipped over and opens in the opposite direction and is glued behind the Balmy Blue card base!
