I just added some of the pencils in a row from top to bottom and then swished the AquaPainter from left to right and down the page. So simple and so effective!

Oh, and check out those Black Glimmer Dragonflies!!!

I love these Watercolour Pencils, they make colouring super easy and you can use either the Blender Pen or AquaPainter to blend the colour. I I have used the AquaPainter!

Dear Crafters,

Begin by stamping the image in Basic Black ink and let it dry.

Using the AquaPainter and inks, watercolour the sky from the top, getting slightly lighter as you get to the bottom of the page.

Using the new Watercolour Pencils, colour the image and use the Blender Pen to blend the colour! These are just a fabulous product I can see myself using lots and lots!

I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and added it with Tombo glue.

I added some Wink of Stella to the umbrella.

Swaps for OnStage

Dear Crafters,

Now that I am in Brisbane for the OnStage Live Stampin’ Up! event for 3 days, I can share with you my swaps!

When we attend live events, we make card fronts only to swap with our demonstrator friends for the hour or so before it all begins. The excitement is rich and full of chatter as we meet new people and swap to gain ideas that we may not have thought of creating.

Anyway, here is what I created for this year’s event.

I am not a confident creator of the vintage style, but I do love it and wanted to have a go seeing as this stamp set has the lacy style stamp.

The floral image is coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and the white flowers are coloured using the AquaPainter filled with bleach and dipped into a little White Craft Ink just for something a little bit different!

Birthday Blooms in water colour

Dear Crafters,

I have a different type of card today that can also be used as a gift. It has a card on the top and a little pull out box underneath to place a gift!

I have used the Birthday Blooms stamp set and the water colouring technique. Yes, I know, I have a long way to go with my water colouring, but hey, I had a go!

birthday-blooms-in-water-colour-cards-by-kate-feminine-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

I also didn’t have any water colour paper, so I used the Shimmery White card stock, so maybe that didn’t help.

The ink colours I have used with my Aqua Painter were: Melon Mambo, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Delightful Dijon, Dapper Denim, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green!

Oh and here is another one I made with the gorgeous Rudolf on the front!

Basket For You

Dear Crafters,

Tell me, who doesn’t love flowers? said no one ever!

Today’s card uses the Hostess Set, Basket For You. I have to admit, I didn’t really look twice at this set until I saw a card by one of my downline, Kimberly, who made a stunning card with this set.

Basket For You, Petal Burst TIEF, #stampinup, DIY,  2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I started by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Petal Burst Textured Impression Embossing folder. Next I stamped the basket image and coloured it with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markers and the basket was watercoloured using the Aquapainter.

I used the oval framelits for the main image (and paper pierced the edge) and deco label framelits to die cut the Peach behind it. These were adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with paper snips!

I even stamped a small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope (which I forgot to put in the photo!) oops.

Basket for You

Dear Crafters,

Is your product list growing as fast as mine with the excitement of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue going live on Wednesday?

Here is a card that was created using one of the Hostess stamp sets, Basket for You.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The image was stamped and die cut with the oval framelits, before water colouring with an Aqua Painter and ink pads in the new 2016-2018 In Colours. The basket is coloured using Sahara Sand and Tip Top Taupe.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The card base is the new Sweet Sugarplum, embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Marina Mist Designer Series paper and a layer of Silver Glimmer paper edged with the Banner Triple punch.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The sentiment was stamped in coordinating ink and seeing as I don’t have the new Bunch of Banners Framelits yet, I had to fussy cut the sentiment! Poor me!!!!

I added the oval and the sentiment with dimensionals.

Rose Wonder Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

This watercolouring technique is very easy and effective. The image is stamped with Veramark ink onto Watercolour paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then using an Aqua painter, coloured with inks.

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

Once dry, I fussy cut the image out and added it to the brick wall background with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I think it is lovely for a sympathy card.

Rose Wonder White Wash

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits!

This is such a gorgeous stamp set and who doesn’t love roses?

So here is my card!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

The technique used to create this card is called the white wash technique. Simply, the image is stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, then a white wash applied to the image with an Aquapainter and then coloured using the Aquapainter and inks. There are many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest if you would like to have a go!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

Once I coloured the image using rose red ink, I added some Wink of Stella ~ how gorgeous and sparkly does that look?!!!! Oh I love some sparkle!!! lol

Christmas, Designer Series Paper

Holiday Catalogue is almost here!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a Sneak Peek card using some of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue that goes live tomorrow!!!! Be sure to check back in the morning to view the catalogue online and write up your Christmas Wish List. There is sure to be plenty of products that you are going to love!

Anyway, here is my first card to share with you.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

This stamp set is called Christmas Cuties, and this little angel was the very first one from the set that I had to ink up!

I used the brand new Black Archival ink which is also new in this catalogue. It can be used to stamp and then water colour the image and it doesn’t bleed. Wahoo, it’s amazingly awesome!

The next product is the Designer Series Paper stack that I have used for the banners. This pack is called Merry Moments DSPS.

I layered the DSP banners (made using the Triple Banner Punch) and then embossed the whole front of the card using the Elegant Dots TIEF before adding the glitter banner.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

The Angel was die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits and the next largest framelit for the Cherry Cobbler layer.

I coloured the image using the Aqua Painter and ink pads, before adding some Dazzling Diamonds to her wings and some Gold Metallic Thread behind.
