2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Vase of Daisies for a 40th birthday

I just love these daisy punches and today’s card is simply stunning with a vase full of them! The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foils are gorgeous and you need to get them before they are gone. Just look at these colours together!!!

Simply punching daisies in both sizes and layering a couple of them, adds depth to the card. I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones around the card and some of the larger gold faceted gems to the centres of the daisies.

I embossed the card base with the Subtles Dynamic TIEF which gives it a lovely textured background.

This card was made for a dear friend of mine who turned 40 this week and I used my retired little number dies which I adore…. but there could be a similar product returning to the new catalogue in a couple of weeks, so exciting!!!!

Easy Daisy Slider Card

Tonight’s Slider card is very easy to create without too much fuss and measurements and link are below.

I am using the Daisy Lane suite for my card. The stamp set and mini daisy punch are available as a bundle saving you 10% and there is a special offer below so make sure you keep reading to take advantage of the 11 free tutorials.

Easy Slider Card using Stampin Up Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

I’m using 3 of my favourite new In Colours; Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.

The fern image is stamped in Purple Posy on Seaside Spray cardstock. The medium daisy is all Seaside Spray (ink & card) and the smaller daisies are stamped in the 3 colours on white card and fussy cut. The leaf punch is used with vellum for a softer look.

The circle punch was used to punch the top of the card so you can pull the white card up to reveal the message inside.

Of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the main daisy and over the Smile sentiment.

Water-colouring with Pigment Sprinkles and Daisy Lane

Wow, look at this bright background I’ve created with the new Pigment Sprinkles?!!!

Pigment Sprinkles are watercolour pigment crystals in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. Mix them with water to make watercolour backgrounds and washes and use them for other water-colouring techniques.  You get 6 jars – 1 of each of these colours: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo.

I used the new Fluid 100 water colour paper (amazing quality) and I went it quite liberally with the Stampin’ Spritzer before sprinkling some of the Pigment Sprinkles on top. TIP: make sure you are light handed as a little goes a long, long way…. jut ask me how I know?!!! Then sit back and watch the instant magic happen! You can also spritz a little more water on if you want a more watercolour look (like the daisies).

Daisy Lane stamp set & Pigment Sprinkles, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2019

The daisies were also created using this same technique but in 2 colours for each size. Allow the water-colour paper to dry completely before trying to punch them out.  The same with the background piece. I actually used my heat tool to quicken up the drying process as I was a little impatient and wanted to keep going. I stamped the stem in Gorgeous Grape ink so it would stand out on the bright background 😉

Use a bone folder to help curve the petals of the daisies before gluing to the card; just gives a bit more life to them.

How gorgeous are those Perennial Essence Centres? So fussy and they are nice and bright to match perfectly with this card.

Floating Balloons

I shared this technique on Tuesday in the Terracotta Tile and Mosaic Mood DSP, and this one was a little easier that I taught at my last class.

We just used the Balloon Bouquet Punch in cardstock colours; Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point & Poppy Parade.

This was a lovely bright colour scheme to suite either feminine or masculine occasions. Wouldn’t any child love this one?!!

Once we had the balloons all stuck down, we covered them with the Wink of Stella for that gorgeous shimmer.

The sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set and inked in Pacific Point.

Here we are with our 2nd last Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Tonight we are featuring our 49th colour; Soft Suede.

I have decided to pull out the new Daisy Lane stamp set which will be available to purchase from 4th June 2019. I also feature the Fable Friends stamp set, one of my favourites that is carrying over into the new catalogue, yippee!!

My background is soft suede with another layer of the same colour stamped with the fern image from Daisy Lane in coordinating ink. I also sponged the edges with a dauber and glued it to the base card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The bunny image (Fable Friends) is stamped in soft suede on the same colour card and fussy cut with Snips. Check out the jacket, ears, eyes and nose which are all glittery, as I used my Wink of Stella for some glitz!

On each side of the hands, I cut a small sit for the stem of the daisy to slide through. Doesn’t it look like he’s holding it?!!! He is adhered with Dimensionals.

The daisy is stamped with the new  2019-2021 In Colour, Rococo Rose ink on Rococo Rose card stock and cut using the Daisy Punch. I used my bone folder to gently curve the petals up before gluing it to the card and placing a Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Colour Creations: Pumpkin Pie makes for a glorious sunset

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 41st colour; Pumpkin Pie.

As we near the end of March it also means we near the end of Sale-a-bration and for you to earn FREE product. So don’t let this be you!

000 Saleabration ending soon.jpg

Today’s project was inspired by Michelle Zindorf from Ohio who is the absolute master of colouring. I admire her work and try to recreate similar effects, but I have a long way to go!!!

Pumpkin Pie is certainly one of my least used colours and so it stumped me when it came time to use it for this blog hop, although I do love a glorious sunset and so that is where the idea began. I also hadn’t inked up this Happy Tails stamp set nor used the coordinating Dog Builder punch, so perfect time to get it out and get creating.

Happy Tails Dog Stampin Up Sponging by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

The background is created by sponging Mango Melody at the top, then some Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I used my AquaPinter with some Garden Green ink and swiped it across the centre of the card to create the horizon. I then sponged from the bottom with Garden Green ink and swished up with the sponge dauber to get the grassy effect.

Happy Tails Dog Builder PunchStampin Up Sponging by Kate Morgan Australia

The dog is punched from basic black card and I used a HB pencil to draw the lines for the shadow. Don’t look too closely at my wobbly hands LOL

On the inside I sponged the edges and stamped the dog house in Pumpkin Pie and the Mango Melody solid layer is stamped off once for a lighted tone.

The paw prints were not going to appear as part of the card, but guess what… I got a couple of tiny smudge marks and these paws are there to cover them up!!! LOL. Have you ruined a card at the final step too, and needed to embellish, rather than starting over?

Thanks Coach for a wonderful netball season!

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a Double Z Fold Card made for my kids’ netball coaches… yep, there are 2 coaches so I had to make 2 of them!!!

I must admit, it did take quite a while to come up with creating the whole team on the one card, but I think this works quite well. The goals at either end and then all the players on the court, even with the centre circle! The team colours are a Gold and Burgundy, so the closest colours were Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry. I used Balmy Blue for the background, even thought most of the season I could have used Basic Gray or Smoky Slate (being the winter competition)!!!!

Thanks Netball Coach card using Stampin Up Punch Art by Kate Morgan Australia.

The net is made by stamping the image from the Sea of Textures stamp set and then die cut with the Pretty Pines, small pine cone thinit and trimmed. The players are all punch art using the Cookie Cutter punch, Fox Builder punch and the retired Owl builder punch. The centre circle was 2 circle punches; cut the smaller one, then line up the bigger one over where the smaller one was punched!

The bibs with the positions are stamped using the new Make a Difference stamp set!
