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.

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.

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.

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?

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Mango Melody!!!

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.

Christmas, Pens for Colouring, Stampin' Up!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 23: Beachy Little Christmas with Stampin Blends!

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 23 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is using the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and the brand new Stampin’ Blends Markers which are released today for you to purchase!!!

You can purchase these markers singularly or in a combo pack of two. Or if you are like me and need the entire set, you can also purchase all of them (see below)!!!

Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers 2017.jpg

Here is my Christmas card using these amazing new blending markers.

IMG_6842

My card base is Fresh Fig and I used the Thick Whisper White for the centre panel.

To use the Stampin’ Blend Markers, you need to stamp your images with the Black Memento ink pad, allowing it to dry for a few minutes before you begin colouring. I add the darker shade first and then blend with the lighter shade.

IMG_6844

I used some of the Red Ribbon across the top and bottom of the white card and added a bow, just to add a little red to make it extra Christmassy!!!

IMG_6846

Watch the video on using the Stampin’ Blends Markers!

A full list of product can be found at the end of this post!

I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.

Elf time

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using that cute little elf from the stamp set, Christmas Cuties. This is one of my favourites in the new Holiday Catalogue and you will see plenty more in the months ahead using this stamp set!!!

My base is Mossy Meadow card stock with a layer of Real Red card stock.

The Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack is so cute with it’s polka dot pattern. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad onto Whisper White card stock and coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to die cut the image and another, one size larger to frame it. The amazing Triple Banner punch was used once again with the gold foil card layered behind the framelits. To finish off, I added some Gold Dazzling Details to the 4 bells and left to dry. Cute hey?!!!!

Did you notice I don’t have a sentiment? I actually didn’t think I needed one. This jolly little fellow screams Christmas to me!!!!

The Season of Cheer Designer Washi Tape is so quick and easy to use and helps to create cards in no time. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

I think this stamp set will get great use, as it can be coloured any way you like, whether using Blendabilities, water colour or markers. And check out the sentiment!!!!

I have used Blendabilities to colour the images.
