Die cutting this element in black card and placing it over some of the beautiful DSP creates an amazing effect. The elements water coloured and placed in the corner are so bright against the black!

Bright Poppies for a Happy Birthday

Tonight’s card is a bright and bold card using the Painted Poppies stamp set, coordinating Elements and Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the card front with the poppy stamp in Versamark ink as I wanted that watermark look. Strips of the designer paper were added before I added the black circle element. I watercoloured the poppy and leaf from the elements pack and once dry, placed them on with dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink on black card and Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut this and added it with dimensionals. I love how bold it is and the gold adds some class and shine!

Wildly Happy Collage with Pigment Sprinkles

Tonight I have a collage scene using the fox image from the Wildly Happy stamp set. I have also used the Pigment Sprinkles on the Fluid 100 Water colour paper to create that textured background of the grass. Simply wet the paper with an AquaPainter and carefully sprinkle a very small amount of colour onto the paper. You will see it spread instantly and such vibrant colour. I also added a little water in the Stampin’ Spritzer to add a little more water to spread the colour. Leave it to dry completely before cutting the hill shape with scissors. The smaller hill is Mossy Meadow card, cut with the Layering Oval framelits and embossed with the Suble Dynamic Embossing Folder for extra texture.

The tree is cut using the Sweet Silhouettes dies in Early Espresso card. I added this with mini dimensionals to add some height above the foxes.

The foxes are coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers and fussy cut before adding them to the card. I love how they are curled up resting under the tree!

Super Simple water-coloured Magnolias

Tonight’s card focuses on the Magnolia embossing folder and how to colour the flowers with an AquaPainter and some inkpads. By squashing the inkpad into the lid before opening it, gives you enough of a colour palette to work with. Squeezer the AquaPainter to get a drop or two of water into the ink to get the brush going, swirl it around and then gently add the colour to the flower.

The colour will lighten as it dries. Wait for it to dry completely before gluing the layer to your card. The sentiment (Very Versailles stamp set) is stamped in Soft Seam Foam ink on the same colour card and added with dimensionals.

I added some Wink of Stella to the stamen for a bit of glimmer and extra interest.

Slider card and Smooshing with watercolour technique with Instructions

Tonight I have a couple of techniques with some watercolour smooshing and a slider card!

I taught this to my class ladies earlier this month and they loved it. It’s always great having a masculine themed class and we focused on this bundle mainly. It reminded me that I must do more masculine themed classes in the future.

To create the watercolour background, I put a couple of drops of re-inker, reasonably close together onto a sheet of acetate, spritzed it with water and then lay the Fluid 100 watercolour paper on top and gently pressed down with the finger tips (don’t rub). You don’t want the colours to mix together, just gently blend. You may need to place the paper down again so you cover the entire piece, as the excess we cut away, will be used later. I then put this aside to dry while I stamped the images and the inside of the card.

Slider card & Smooshing Technique using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019.

The lighthouse is stamped in Soft Suede and coloured with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo pack to get the darker and lighter shading. The boats are stamped in Night of Navy ink and coloured with Combo Blends of So Saffron and Poppy Parade. I added some Wink of Stella to the water below the boats rather than colouring it.

Slider card & Smooshing Technique using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019

On the inside I stamped the sentiment, add a Copper Foil anchor and the rope is part of the leftover pieces from the excess watercolour paper! The straight piece of rope is from the slider mechanism from the front!!!

Slider card & Smooshing Technique using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019

To create the slider card mechanism:slider card mechanism.JPG

Score 2 lines on card, punch 2 circles with lines through the centre. Fold them into a taco shape. Place glue on the bottom of one and glue them together to create the H shape.

Cut the watercolour piece down to the size you require and die cut the rope die across the front where you want the sliding sailing boat to be. With the strip of left over water-coloured paper, glue this to the card base behind where the die-cut rope was so it still looks great and not having the Navy card show through. I did this by placing the paper down the watercolour paper roughly where I wanted it centred on the card and used a pencil to mark on the card base, either end of the rope, as a guide.

Add glue to the flat side and adhere to the larger sailing ship, ensuring that it is the right orientation (scorelines horizontal). Slide this into the slot so each side is facing toward the top and bottom of the card. It is easiest to do this step before you adhere the front panel to the card base. I used Adhesive Foam Strips around the edges of the watercolour layer and then two more strips either side of the mechanism, but ensure you allow enough space for the circles to slide along.

slider card mechanism.

This is not a spinner card, but a slider card, as I didn’t want the sailing boat doing circles on the ocean. If you want it to spin, you would use some washers from the hardware store joined together by a mini dimensional.

I hope these instructions make sense.

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.

Purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle from me (only $61.00 for the stamp set and medium daisy punch) and I’ll personally email you 11 step-by-step full colour picture Tutorials created by our AWHT ladies, to help you recreate some amazing cards.

The four tiny Rich Razzleberry die cut flowers and the sentiment have Wink of Stella on them, can you see it? Then I placed a small Pearl into the centre of each flower. I also added some of the Velvet Ribbon behind the Tea Cup.

Colour Creations: Powder Pink & watercolour in Tea Together

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Our Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop features our 40th colour; Powder Pink. This is one of the In Colours that will retire in June, so make sure you purchase anything Powder Pink now while they are still available!

I have had this stamp set, Tea Together with the coordinating Tea Time Framelits dies for a little while now but this is my first time inking it up. Why did I wait so long???!!!

My colour palette: Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam & Fresh Fig

The images were all stamped with Versamark ink on Watercolour Paper, Gold Emboss Powder added and Heat set. Then I coloured using the AquaPainter and ink from the stamp pads. I did all this and let them dry before die cutting each of the images out.

Mother's Day Card using Stampin Up Tea Together, Watercolouring by Kate Morgan, Australia..jpg

I embossed the Fresh Fig layer with the Tin Tile Embossing folder before using the Versamark pad around each of the edges, just swiping gently across the pad then dipping each edge in the Gold Emboss Powder & heat set. I also did this on the Powder Pink layer inside the card!

I sprinkled some extra gold emboss powder gently over the embossed Fresh Fig card and heat set it from behind so the powder didn’t blow away and stayed where I needed it.

I gold embossed the doily as well and placed some Gold Metallic Thread behind the tea pot, which is adhered with dimensionals.

I love the watercolour effect of this rose, super pretty.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and Gold embossed it also. Do you think I have enough Gold??!!!
