Monochrome Creative Showcase

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the March Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a masculine card predominantly using the Waterfront stamp set and Night of Navy and White. The sentiment is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

My next card is a sneak peek at some new product coming soon for my feminine Rococo Rose Monochrome card. This is the Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Border Dies & Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. (All these items will be available in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June, or now if you wish to join and add them to your starter kit).

Emboss the Rococo Rose card base with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Die cut the border die in the same colour card once, then line it up on the opposite side to achieve the strip of fancy border.

Stamp the floral image in Versamark ink onto whisper white card, added clear emboss powder and heat set it. Then I used a sponge dauber and roughly inked the entire image, before fussy cutting.

Using the Rococo Rose Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, colour the image. I also used the Light marker to outline the entire image. I used the dark maker to colour the rhinestones and the Whisper White Ribbon.

On the inside, I used the Ornate Border die to create that floral die cut down the right side. The rhinestones are the perfect size to sit in the centre of the flower. The sentiment is stamped using the Family Party Stamp set.

Elegant Wedding card

Tonight’s card is a Wedding card for my cousin who recently got married. Using the gorgeous Happy Birthday to You stamp set I created this very feminine wedding card. This stamp set can be earned FREE with any $90 order during Sale•a•bration!!!

The embossed background (Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Embossing Folder) adds a touch of elegance for such a special occasion.

The Stitched So Sweetly dies were used to die cut the scallop rectangle in Shimmery White card stock. This gives a gorgeous shimmer to the image when coloured. The image is stamped in Sahara Sand ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The sentiment is stamped using the Stamparatus with Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool before fussy cutting around it! The Petal Pink 1/4″ (6.4mm) Metallic-edge Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

Breathtaking Bouquet to Impress

Tonight’s card is using the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set with the Best Dressed Suite and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

All images are stamped with Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. The floral image is fussy cut from the background stamp, Breathtaking Bouquet. The card layer is embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects in small droplets once the card was complete, so it had time to dry.

Masking Little Ladybugs

Have a look at this single layer card often known as Simple Stamping! It has loads of colour and doesn’t necessarily need lots of layers, just simple colouring.

However, if you look a little closer, you may see that I have used the Masking Technique with the flowers to give the feeling of depth in the images.

The inside has a sentiment and some more of the little ladybugs stamped across the bottom and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Little Ladybug & Bee

How adorable are these little ladybugs and bees?!!! Did you notice I have a bee on my card? I’ll explain how I made this ladybug into a tree shortly.

The card base is an A5 white card. The next layer is Shimmery White card stock, simply stamped and coloured. Shimmery White card is really beautiful for colouring with the Blends and it has that added shimmer!!! The background was done last with the Light Pool Party Blends Marker.

Okay, so you are wondering how I did the bee? Well, I used the Black Stampin’ Write Marker and coloured the image except the dots on the wings. Gave it a huff of breath and stamped onto the card. How cute!!!!

Now let’s get started!

My chosen Sale-a-bration product to showcase tonight is the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, free with any $90 order. I just love the images in this 5 piece stamp set. The font of the sentiments is so feminine and it is so versatile for any occasion.

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up Saleabration 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia p

This card is a lovely monotone in Crumb Cake and White. The layer is a piece of Crumb Cake card, cut 5mm smaller than the card front. I used the stunning Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the layer before gluing it to the card front.

The image is stamped twice onto Crumb Cake card in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut the entire image out and then the second one, I just fussy cut the flowers & leaves, so I could layer them on top for extra dimension.

In the past I would have coloured the flowers with the Craft White Ink and an AquaPainter, however, I used the White Chalk Marker. It was so much easier!

I added a few Rhinestones for some bling!

The inside I stamped the image in second generation stamping (stamped off once on plain paper before onto the card). The sentiment is stamped full strength.

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up Saleabration 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia inside

This next card is created exactly the same way, however, I added some colour with Stampin’ Blends Markers to the flowers for a beautiful spot of colour. I changed up the Rhinestones with Champagne ones!

I even coloured the cake stand on this one to help it stand out more.

Here are both the cards, side by side. Which one is your favourite?

Even better news, is that there will be coordinating dies for this stamp set which will be available next month!!! Yay, no more fussy cutting all those small flowers 😆

Best Dressed Ladybug!

Oh my, look at this background, how beautiful is the embossing? This is the new Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Again I have used the Little Ladybug stamp set and a strip of the Best Dressed DSP.

I stamped the ladybug first, then used a mask over her and then stamped the flower so that it looks as though she is sitting on it. Then I coloured them before fussy cutting to add to the card on dimensionals.

Best Dressed DSP & Little Ladybug Hostess Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia 1

The flower petals were covered with Petal Pink Blends Markers and then the Light Flirty Flamingo blends was used as well to give that extra shade of pink. I really love how it turned out! The centre is coloured with Daffodil Delight Blends Markers then Shimmery Crystal Effects added.

Best Dressed DSP & Little Ladybug Hostess Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia m

On the inside I stamped the row of ladybugs and coloured them in with a simple Happy Birthday sentiment.

Free as a Bird

Now you’ve had a couple of days to look through the catalogue, what are your must have items? Any of the ones I shared with you on Tuesday?

I am loving the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards & Tin. Here I have used it with some of the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper behind the laser cut card.

Bird Ballad Suite & Laser Cut Tin, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan

 

Then I stamped the image & sentiment onto whisper white card and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I placed some Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon behind the die cut and adhered them to the card with dimensionals.

Bird Ballad Suite & Laser Cut Tin Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan.

How gorgeous is this bird image? I stamped quite a few one day and then on a Saturday night, usually it’s family movie night in our house, and I wasn’t so interested in watching their choice of movie, so I sat with them and coloured the images. Great use of time I reckon!!!

Will you be adding any of these products to your collection?

Piece of Cake for Colour Creations Mango Melody Blog Hop, Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

My card base is Mango Melody and I randomly stamped the cake image on the same ink colour across the front of the card. I stamped the same image on Whisper White card and punched it out with the Cake Builder punch. I also stamped the flowers and fussy cut them to add to the top of the cake. I applied Wink of Stella to the flowers and the flowers on the cake. Not sure if you can see that in the photo?!

The stand is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold emboss powder. I coloured part of it with the Stampin Write Marker. I layered some Coastal Cabana card and white card with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. These layers were all sponged around the edges with a dauber.

The sentiment is stamped and the Classic Label Punch to cut it out and add with a dimensional.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Lemon Lime Twist!!!

I am giving you a sneak peek of a new stamp set that will be available in the 2019 Occasions catalogue. I won this as my Prize Patrol set at the OnStage event for demonstrators last Saturday! It is called Wonderful Romance.

My card base is Old Olive with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist and then I have stamped the image in Sahara Sand on Whisper White card. The sentiment is also stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.

wonderful-romance-sneak-peek-2019-occasions-by-kate-morgan-australia

I don’t think the photo does it justice, but the larger leaves are coloured with Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker and then a layer of the Fine Tip Glue added for the shiny look. The other leaves are coloured with Soft Sea Foam & Old Olive and the flowers are Lovely Lipstick! Each flower has an enamel dot in the centre (these are new too!) and the bow is Linen Thread.
