Peony Peek-a-boo card

Today I have created a fancy fold card using the Prized Peony Suite. These stunningly soft colour tones are so feminine and appealing to the eye, especially with the vellum square doilies for added texture.

I coloured the blooms with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Petal Pink and Old Olive.

When you open the card, the peek-a-boo layer comes down to reveal a second image or sentiment!

When the card is fully open, the original image you saw, is covered up!

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight & Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Colour Creations: Terracotta Tile Floating Frame

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Tonight’s AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop features Terracotta Tile, the 3rd of our new 2019-2021 In Colours.

This is the Floating Frame Technique that you may have seen everywhere, as it’s been the most popular technique since earlier this year (Google it and you’ll find loads of videos on how to make them).  I was also fortunate enough to have some fellow demonstrator team mates in Auckland early for OnStage Live who were able to purchase a roll of the Glad Press & Seal product to make these projects (it’s not easy to get here in Australia).

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019

I decided to fussy cut all the images of a sheet of the Mosaic Mood DSP one evening during our family movie time 🙂

I love the fact that we actually get 2 cards from this technique too!

Doesn’t it look effective?! I love this technique but make sure you have time and not be in a rush. I added some rhinestones and glitter enamel dots to the spaces for some extra sparkle and interest.

This second card doesn’t have a sentiment yet, as I will add the appropriate one at the right time.

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.

If you are going to have a go at this technique, be warned, you need to have loads of dimensionals and patience! Getting those backings off the dimensionals takes time, hehe.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set, inked with Terracotta Tile.

Colour Creations: Tranquil Tide with Cling Wrap Technique

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 50th and final Stampin’ Up! colour; Tranquil Tide.  I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this blog hop each week and thank Catherine for coordinating it all year long! xx

This card uses the Cling Wrap technique and the Rooted in Nature Suite of products.

The cling wrap technique is using some cling wrap or even an old plastic bag from the supermarket, scrunch it up and drab it into an inkpad and then dab onto the cardstock. Repeat this process with a couple of other colours. I have used Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana & Soft Sea Foam onto a small piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Once I had the coverage I wanted, I stamped the image & sentiment in Black ink.

Rooted in Nature for Colour Creations Tranquil Tide Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019..

Then I placed the card into my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it on the diagonal. No special measurement, just sliced it twice. I glued it onto some tranquil tide card leaving a small gap between each section, before mounting onto some black cardstock. Doesn’t it give a great effect?!!!

The 1/2″ Woven Ribbon (retired) was the perfect addition for my Tranquil Tide card.

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

Once the card was finished, I added some Wink of Stella (my favourite product!) over the tree image and added a couple of rhinestones.

On the inside I had to add a layer of tranquil tide then some whisper white to be able to write on. It looked a little plain, so I added a small strip of the same DSP.

Thank You Petal Promenade

Tonight’s card is using some soon to retire products from the Annual catalogue. This stunning Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is glorious and makes me smile with all all those gorgeous blooms. I can almost smell them!

The colours are also soon to retire, so if you love them too, you need to get them before they are gone. Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink are three of the In Colours of 2017-2019. I just love the 3 of them together.

This Dotted Tulle ribbon will also retire and it has been super popular with its softness and dotted pattern. The sentiment is stamped on white card and the 2″ circle punch to cut it out. Then I layered it onto a Fresh Fig Starburst punched piece.

This card is a Trifold card which Ronda Wade shared recently, but I have altered the measurements for our Australian card sizes. You can see how it opens here:

I just love how pretty this paper is, so I didn’t want to cover it up! Even the marble pattern on the inside gives it extra glamour!

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 46th colour; Smoky Slate.

I have gone with a Monotone card using this gorgeous Wonderful Romance stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Floral Framelits (both products are retiring on 3 June unless sold out prior) so make sure you add them to your shopping cart now!

The card base is Smoky Slate with a layer of Whisper White with 1″ panels in the above colours.

Then I stamped the images in Stazon ink and used the AquaPainter to watercolour the images with ink refills. I also added Wink of Stella to the flowers and those tiny leaves. I love those black embossed die cut leaves behind for a dramatic effect!

Colour Creations: Shaded Spruce for a Tropical Chic Thank you!

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop  featuring our 45th colour; Shaded Spruce. Wow, can you believe there are only 5 more colours to go?!

How cool is this tropical card using lots of the Tropical Escape DSP, some simple stamping and some embossing to add some shine!

That large leaf is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and then I used a sponge dauber to add some extra tone with Shaded Spruce ink around the edges before stamping it onto some White card.

Tropical Chic for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

How beautiful does that copper embossed flower look on the Petal Pink card stock? It looks even better in real life, as the card stock has similar tones! I have popped these stamped pieces up on dimensionals.

Tropical Chic for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2019..JPG

and because that copper embossed flower looked so good, I did another one for the inside with some more DSP!

Sending All My Heartfelt Thanks

Tonight’s card is the same style as the one I showed you recently. You can see it here. However this one opens in landscape, rather than portrait, but it is the same concept!

I began with Poppy Parade card: 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half.
The DSP Layer: 10cm x 14.3cm is glued to the card front and then the circle punch is used to punch the window. The sentiment is stamped and a few different punches were used to layer it. The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder was used for added interest on the Poppy Parade Story Label punched piece.

Heartfelt Thanks with Stampin Up Painted Seasons Bundle, Well Said, Well Written by Kate Morgan, Australia, Occasions 2019.JPG

The inside panel is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 3/4″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″. Before adhering it into the card, I added a little die cut bird and ‘thanks’ and stamped Heartfelt in Poppy Parade ink. I also stamped the leaves directly onto the insert card. Then I stamped two of the flower images and die cut them before gluing them down.

Here is another angle so you can see how the inside works. I love how the sentiment sits on that panel when you open the card!
