Fancy Tree & Brightly Gleaming Ornament

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

I am using the Brightly Gleaming DSP from the Holiday catalogue again for tonight’s projects. I have simply punched the smaller ornament 6 times from different papers in this pack and glued them to the card in a tree shape. Even the sentiment was perfect for the trunk. The background is embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and I used the Delicata Copper Metallic ink pad around the edges and placed a copper star element on top of the tree. I also added some of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones for extra sparkle.

My next project also uses the Brightly Gleaming DSP, but this time a Christmas decoration to hang on your Christmas Tree! It is simply made using the 2″ circle punch with 12 circles folded in half and glued together. The Copper Trim coordinates perfectly and is 12″ folded in half with a knot at one end. Place it through the centre before gluing the final circles together. This one looks a little battered as my cat decided she wanted to tap it off my craft table and chase it around the room 😯

Colour Creations: Purple Posy Fancy Fold

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Here we are at the end of the AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hops showcasing every Stampin’ Up! colour, ending with the 5th new In Colour; Purple Posy.

This is a centre step fold card using the Floral Essence Bundle (stamp set and punch) and Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

I love a bundle; not only does it save you 10% purchasing the 2 products together, but punch bundles make it very affordable and easy to use without the added expense of a die cutting machine.

and the inside looks like this:

Because this is the final Colour Creations blog hop, I’ve made a second card!

This one uses the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. The front of the card is quite simply stamped on whisper white cardstock, some Purple Tricolour ribbon wrapped around, layered on top of some Petal Pink card embossed with the Subtle dynamic TIEF on a Purple Posy card base.

The inside of the card is also stamped to reflect a couple of the same images from the front of the card.

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.

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: Daisies in Pretty Peacock

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

So today I am featuring Pretty Peacock, and what a stunning colour it is. I have used it with Very Vanilla, the 2019-2021 In Colour 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Daisy Lane stamp set. This also coordinates with the Daisy punch and a new Medium Daisy punch is also available now, but of course mine hasn’t arrived yet, so I fussy cut the small daisy images for now!

I used my bone folder to give the petals more dimension, gently curling them up.

Do you notice that gorgeous new In Colour scalloped linen ribbon too? It’s so gorgeous. I also love the font of the sentiment and how cleanly it stamped. WOW! The new Stitched Nested Label dies are a great addition to your die cutting collection.

The stems was stamped on Pretty Peacock cardstock in the same ink and fussy cut.

Are you going to add the Daisy Lane stamp set to your order? You should, it is amazing and can be used for so many different projects.

Colour Creations: Daisy Lane in Rococo Rose

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

I’m a little sad that our AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop has finished, but never fear, we are going to continue for the another 5 weeks showcasing the 5 new In Colours!!!

So tonight we are starting with Rococo Rose, and at this stage I think this one is my favourite colour.

I am loving the Daisy Lane stamp set and I have paired it with loads of new product from the Annual catalogue which started today!!! Yay!!!

My card base is Rococo Rose cardstock with a layer of Whisper White embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.

The 2019-2021 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack is awesome for creating cards and here I have used it by cutting it out with the 1-3/4″ circle punch in each of the designs in the 6″ x 6″ paper stack. The Scalloped Linen Thread is super pretty and I just had to add it to my card.

Daisy Lane in Rococo Rose Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan.JPG

The daisy is stamped twice in Rococo Rose ink on the same colour cardstock and punched out using the Daisy punch. I joined them together with Tombo Multipurpose glue and used the bone folder to gently curl the petals for a more realistic look. That gorgeous iced rhinestone in the centre is retired unfortunately, but I love it. The stem was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on whisper white card and fussy cut.

Don’t forget the add some stamped images and/or DSP to the inside of your card!

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.

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

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.

Here we are with our 2nd last Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Tonight we are featuring our 49th colour; Soft Suede.

I have decided to pull out the new Daisy Lane stamp set which will be available to purchase from 4th June 2019. I also feature the Fable Friends stamp set, one of my favourites that is carrying over into the new catalogue, yippee!!

Daisy Lane Fable Friends Stampin Up Australia Kate Morgan 2019 Colour Creations Blog Hop...JPG

My background is soft suede with another layer of the same colour stamped with the fern image from Daisy Lane in coordinating ink. I also sponged the edges with a dauber and glued it to the base card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The bunny image (Fable Friends) is stamped in soft suede on the same colour card and fussy cut with Snips. Check out the jacket, ears, eyes and nose which are all glittery, as I used my Wink of Stella for some glitz!

On each side of the hands, I cut a small sit for the stem of the daisy to slide through. Doesn’t it look like he’s holding it?!!! He is adhered with Dimensionals.

The daisy is stamped with the new  2019-2021 In Colour, Rococo Rose ink on Rococo Rose card stock and cut using the Daisy Punch. I used my bone folder to gently curve the petals up before gluing it to the card and placing a Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 48th colour; Soft Sea Foam. Wow, only a couple more weeks to go!

I’m using the Note cards & Envelopes for this card, with the lovely Wood Textures DSP which will be retiring shortly, so if you love it too, you need to get it now before it’s gone.

This stamp set from the Occasions catalogue, Let it Ride will be carrying over into the new Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty!

I glued the Wood Textures DSP to the front of the Note card and the flap of the envelope.

Let it Ride for Colour Creations Soft Sea Foam Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019..JPG

I started with a piece of 2.5″ x 3.5″ white card and stamped the images in Memento Black ink. I used a sponge dauber to add the sky (Balmy Blue) and the grass (Soft Sea Foam). The horse was coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Once it was all coloured, I rubbed all 4 edges along the Versamark inkpad and added Gold Emboss powder before heat setting it. If you follow my blog, you will notice I use this technique quite a bit, I just love the look!

I then mounted it onto some Soft Sea Foam card and glued it onto the note card. I stamped the trees on the back of the envelope and on the inside of the card.

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 47th colour; So Saffron.

I have gone with a patchwork design this week, using up some soon to retire Designer series paper, Garden Impressions.

I was inspired by a bag that my gorgeous Mother-in-law made for me recently. Isn’t is stunning?!!! I’m such a lucky girl.

I have used the Around the Corner stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP. It is just some simple squares and cutting to put it all together. The Night of Navy ink looks fab with So Saffron!

The background of the card base, I actually embossed with the Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing folder through the Big Shot.

On the inside I added some Whisper White card and cut a couple of squares of the DSP and then cut them in half again on the diagonal to glue into each corner.
