Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 33rd colour; Old Olive.

I cased today’s card from page 18 of the Sale-a-bration brochure. This is a really great way of getting ideas when using a new stamp set!

My card base is actually Thick Whisper White which I have glued to an A5 piece of Old Olive card stock. But first, I embossed it with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also die cut the large circle and stamped the Lily stems behind onto the white card. I wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the Old Olive card, tied it in a bow to the right before gluing the entire piece to the card base.

I stamped the lilies in Daffodil Delight onto spare white card and fussy cut around them before adding them with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card and used the Triple Banner punch on each end, and added with dimensionals. The inside of the card is simply stamped, but I did fussy cut the lily so it was the same as the front of the card!

Today, I have made a sympathy card using the Lasting Lily stamp set, available to select as your free gift when you place a $180 order during Sale-abration, January – March 2019!

It is a Distinktive stamp set, giving you that beautiful depth with one stamped image.

This colour combination is stunning; Berry Burst, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White.  The Textured Weave Ribbon coordinates perfectly for this card. Just tied the ends in a knot and wrapped it around the card layers.

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.

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: Flirty Flamingo

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

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

I have seen lots of people using the Buffalo Check stamp and adding some lines to look like Plaid and I had to give it a go. How good does it look?!!! Just reminds me of a check shirt and it’s perfect with these trees!

Colour Creations Blog Hop using Flirty Flamingo, Buffalo Check & Rooted in Nature by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up, Australia..JPG

By using the Stamparatus to ink the stamps, if you don’t get a good coverage the first time or you want a darker colour, you can re-ink and stamp again as many times as required. I did this multiple times with the Buffalo Check stamp and twice with the sentiment. Once I got the right colour with the Buffalo Check, I used a ruler and the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker to rule some lines to look more like Plaid. Using both the thick end down the centre of each white strip of the check and then the thin end of the marker across the check pattern. Can you see that?

The trees are inked and stamped a couple of times before re-inking and stamping again to get that depth of a forest.

The iridescent sequins are the perfect colour tones to coordinate with my colour palette. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to add them to my card. It is such a cool new tool and saves so much time! I also added some Wink of Stella to the trees for extra glisten!

The copper trim added some darker interest between the image and the plaid and the bow helps to soften it and add a feminine touch.

Thinking of You Fancy Fold with Nature’s Poem DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share my own design Fancy Fold card using Designer Series Paper!

No more hoarding DSP in my house this year, I need to use it and this style is perfect. You can use any of the Designer papers in the Stampin’ Up! range to create all types of cards and the best part is you can get 2 cards from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″!

Each card measures 12″ x 6″ scored at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾” and it fits into our C6 envelopes.

Fun Fold Nature's Poem DSP, Rooted in Nature Stampin Up Thinking of You Card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018

Here it is fully open. The first fold is glued down to the front of the card. Depending on the reverse design of your paper, it can give a striking effect as seen here. This also makes the card stronger. I didn’t want to put a large piece of card in the centre to write the message for two reasons, I didn’t want to cover up that gorgeous paper and secondly I cut it down to fit behind the large sentiment when the card is closed.

Just look at those leaves ♥ I am so in love with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats! Not only did I emboss the leaves on the white message piece, but also embossed them in coordinating coloured card and then die cut them to add even more texture to the front of the card.

Blossoming Basket Bundle & Hello Stamparatus

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the new Level 2 items in the latest release Sale-a-bration brochure (see below). This is a bundle with any $180+ order that you can select for FREE. It is the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the coordinating Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder which are just stunning!

Blossoming Basket & Basket Weave TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia.

I am so excited, my Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) which will be available in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, arrived this week just in time to create this card.

Stamparatus

I was able to stamp the basket using the right side plate and then the sentiment, butterfly and the tag on the top plate, stamping all 3 images at once!!! How cool is that?!!!

The images were stamped with Archival Black ink onto Shimmery White card.  I used the blender pen with inkpads to colour the images, to allow for the required shading I wanted.

I loved how this card turned out, so I wanted to share it with my class ladies on Saturday. They were stunned with the Stamparatus and also loved this bundle. I allowed them to colour their image with whatever tones they liked. They chose Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder & Perfect Plum.  Which one is your favourite?

I love the Petal Pair Embossing folders and using them across one section of the So Saffron card, especially coordinating with this Designer Paper!

Marbled with Gold!

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses a few different stamp sets; Marbled, Lots of Lavender & Ribbon of Courage. Lots of Lavender is available in the Sale-a-bration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

This card was inspired by a picture posted on our Art with Heart Team FB Forum.

colour challenge.jpg

I hadn’t inked up my Marbled background stamp yet, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so. My colour combination is Pool Party, Perfect Plum & Wisteria Wonder with Gold embossing.

The sentiment is from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and the flowers from the Lots of Lavender stamp set.

To create the background, I inked up the entire Marbled stamp with Pool Party ink, then tapped a small amount of Wisteria Wonder & Perfect Plum inks in spots, and applied it to the Shimmery White card stock. Then I used the Wink of Stella pen to add a bit more ink across the entire background. I also went over it with a sponge dauber, especially around the edges. I sprinkled some gold embossing powder over and heat set it. Check out all that shine!

Wink of Stella was also applied over the flowers after I coloured them with Stampin’ Write Markers in coordinating colours.

Blooms of Heartfelt Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sympathy card using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

It is never easy to create a sympathy card when you need one, but having some on hand makes the journey so much easier when it is required. So today, I have this quick and easy card for that very occasion.

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, Saleabration 2018.jpg

This card is 4¼” x 4¼” in Rich Razzleberry, layered with Whisper White.

Look at the detail in this stamp!!!! When I opened the stamp case, I took one look at this floral stamp and thought it was so flat and wouldn’t have very much detail, it even felt  flat and smooth to touch, but I was so glad to be proven wrong. Check it out!

Heartfelt Blooms Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia Saleabration 2018

The images are stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink and then I coloured it lightly with my Watercolour Pencils. Oh and I adore the font in the sentiment, it is so pretty!
