Colour Creations: Highland Heather in Abstract

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Highland Heather!!! This is a new colour this year and it is very pretty.

My first thought was, “oh what the heck will I feature?” and so I starred at all of my stamp sets for ages. I selected Abstract Impressions, as I haven’t used it very much but I adore the Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies that are part of the bundle saving 10%.

My colour combination is:

I glued the layers of Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather together then ran it through the Big Shot with the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the flower images onto whisper white card. The Grapefruit Grove I stamped off once before stamping, as I wanted a softer look. The Highland Heather is stamped in full strength. I then cut the banner at the bottom with paper snips. This was glued to the embossed layers.

The features across the centre has a Highland Heather banner, some Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim. The Vellum die cut with the large floral die and some Gold Metallic Thread sits behind the purple banner. Then I added the die cut butterfly with glue and added a ribbon bow to finish it off. I also added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls across the white banner.

Here’s a close-up so you can see all those layers!

With so much going on with this card, I didn’t think it needed a sentiment, as it would take away the butterfly focal point. What do you think?

Red Roses are so delightful

Today’s card is a very simple project using Stampin’ Up!s Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits, Petals & more!

This card does not have a sentiment on it as yet, but it could be used for so many different occasions; Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Easter, the options are endless!

Petal Palette & Tin Tile TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

The Real Red card base is embossed using the Big Shot and the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The flowers are stamped onto Shimmery White card with Memento Black ink and coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I find it much easier to colour them first before cutting them out! I added some dimensionals to the back of the die cut and then some of the Copper Metallic Thread before placing onto the front of the card (even my nails match the card, lol).

The 1/8″ solid Real Red ribbon at the top was wrapped around the card. A tip here is to start tying the knot, but before completing the bow, place a glue dot under the join to help hold it tight and in place, then finish to tie the bow! It really does help in getting that perfect bow to sit nicely, rather than adding a bow separately.

The inside is decorated simply with another of the smaller flower bud images and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Masculine Thank You with the Nature’s Poem Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a couple of cards using the new Nature’s Poem Suite; Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits, Nature’s Poem DSP. I am so excited this stamp set has coordinating framelits to cut out the images. No more fussy cutting!

I love how the background piece of DSP brings so much dimension to a card. I stamped some of the leaves on it with Crumb Cake ink and wow, it brings it to life.

Rooted in Nature Thank You Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

The tree image is stamped in Shaded Spruce, a new colour arriving on 1 June. This particular image is stamped off once, but you will see the full strength image in my next card (no wasting from me!!!). I love the large banner behind with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing on it. A piece of vellum, sponged with ink gives an antique look and is punched with the Starburst punch.

Rooted in Nature Thank You Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

This card uses a darker piece of Designer Series Paper from the Nature’s Poem pack. With the full strength tree image, I felt it needed a darker base. I added a thin banner of Shaded Spruce card behind the larger banner.

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 17: Bridge Fold card with FREE tutorial

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 17 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the At Home with You stamp set, the coordinating At Home Framelit dies and the Detailed Gate Thinlits die to create this Bridge Fold Christmas card!

Heart of Christmas Inspiration Bridge Fold card with TUTORIAL using Stampin Up At Home with You & Detailed Gate thinlits die by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia. #cutitnothoardit #stampinup.JPG

I started by die cutting the gate in the new Champagne Foil sheet and I was surprised how gorgeous it was. Then I had to come up with a card to use it on… and because it is quite wide, I thought it was perfect for using on a bridge fold card, but I had to come up with a solution to make it sturdy and solid, so I added some Window Sheet behind the detailed gate and because it is clear, you don’t see it! Winner!!!

I love the red front door with the Christmas wreath on it, I think it really pops behind the front gate! I’ve really tried to set the theme here with the gorgeous front gate and looking through to the front door of the house!

Happy 1st Year Anniversary, Deb

Dear Crafters,

Last week one of my gorgeous team members celebrated her 1st year with Stampin’ Up! and I sent her this card.

As you know, myself and a couple of my team went to Brisbane a few weeks ago for the OnStage Live event and these were some of the products I was fortunate to purchase on a premier pre-purchase order. You too can get your hands on these earlier than 2017 if join my team!!

This new designer series paper is called Carried Away and you can get it for free with any $90 order from January 4th 2017.

It coordinates with the stamps set, Lift Me Up and the Up and Away Thinlits.

Check out this balloon cut out with the thinlits. Isn’t it adorable?

Here is the inside on the card, which I also stamped with some more smaller hot air balloons in the coordinating Mint Macaron ink.

I also loved this sentiment and thought it was very appropriate for celebrating Deb’s 1st year anniversary!

I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the words ‘another year’ in the sentiment, but I’m not sure it photographed so well.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries, Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

Sugarplum Sweetness

Dear Crafters,

Oh my, how I do love this colour combination of Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

Floral Phrases, Detailed Floral Thinlits, #stampinup, Thank you, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card, DIY

I have needed to make some thank you cards for some very special people who have been very supportive in helping me out since I had ankle surgery over 4 weeks ago now. I am starting to get up and walk again, but its a huge process. I certainly have a real empathy for those who struggle with any form of disability with the legs. I still have a cast on, but have a special shoe that I wear over the cast to be able to put some weight on it. Anyway, enough of me, lets get back to this stunning card!

I cut a piece of sweet sugarplum card down to fit inside the base card, before using the Detailed Floral Thinlits to die cut the floral images at both ends on the big shot machine using the precision plate. To get all the intricate bits out, I used the new die brush! This was adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The sentiment was stamped and punched out with the Word Window punch.

I even stamped a coordinating image on the inside of the card and on the back of the envelope.
