Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Gorgeous Grape!!!

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

Colour Creations Blog Hop Gorgeous Grape Jar of Love Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Garden Green!!!

I think this Designer Paper is so pretty and lifelike, that I didn’t want to cover it up too much and let it be the hero of this card. I did add a strip of Gold Glimmer and a piece of Cherry Cobbler that has the Stitched Labels framelits die (those little crosses) down one side.

Those berries are the basic pearls coloured with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. The spigs have Wink of Stella on them for that gorgeous glimmer and the Starburst punch is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Merry was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

On the inside, I’ve added two strips; one of DSP and some gold glimmer.

I’m pretty much just using Fresh Fig and Whisper White today, although I did add a hint of other colours with the Artisan Pearl Embellishments. Oh and check out the champagne foil background!!! I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and look what it created… doesn’t it look like Champagne rain? So pretty!

Colour Creations: Flirty Flamingo

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Flirty Flamingo!!!

I have seen lots of people using the Buffalo Check stamp and adding some lines to look like Plaid and I had to give it a go. How good does it look?!!! Just reminds me of a check shirt and it’s perfect with these trees!

Colour Creations Blog Hop using Flirty Flamingo, Buffalo Check & Rooted in Nature by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up, Australia..JPG

By using the Stamparatus to ink the stamps, if you don’t get a good coverage the first time or you want a darker colour, you can re-ink and stamp again as many times as required. I did this multiple times with the Buffalo Check stamp and twice with the sentiment. Once I got the right colour with the Buffalo Check, I used a ruler and the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker to rule some lines to look more like Plaid. Using both the thick end down the centre of each white strip of the check and then the thin end of the marker across the check pattern. Can you see that?

The trees are inked and stamped a couple of times before re-inking and stamping again to get that depth of a forest.

The iridescent sequins are the perfect colour tones to coordinate with my colour palette. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to add them to my card. It is such a cool new tool and saves so much time! I also added some Wink of Stella to the trees for extra glisten!

The copper trim added some darker interest between the image and the plaid and the bow helps to soften it and add a feminine touch.

Colour Creations: Daffodil Delight

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Daffodil Delight!!!

I made this card for my nephew who turned 4 last week. Happy Birthday Mitchell ♥

I love Daffodil Delight with Blueberry Bushel together. I also love this new Buffalo Check stamp! How good does it look? I reckon it makes the perfect shirt for my pocket. I don’t have the Pocket Framelits, so I had to make my own. Once I got the shape right, I embossed it with the Subtles TIEF and then used my paper piercing tool to create the stitching. How good does it look? I wonder why there is a tab to pull with “LOOK’ on it?

4th Birthday Buffalo Check Pocket card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018.JPG

I would have loved to see his face when he pulled the tab! Unfortunately I couldn’t be there to see him as they live in Paynesville, Gippsland, but I’m assured he was amazed to find some cash!

4th Birthday Buffalo Check Pocket card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up, Australia 2018

I think this sentiment is perfect for a 4 year old… isn’t every birthday the biggest occasion when you are a kid?!

Sneak Peek of Buffalo Check with Baby Bear & Copper accents

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Crumb Cake!!!

I am using the Baby Bear stamp set with the new Buffalo Check background stamp (available 5 September in the Holiday catalogue). I have only used two colours; Crumb Cake and Copper… can you believe that?!!!

Baby Bear is a photopolymer 3-step stamp and I used it with the Stamparatus to get the darkest colour I could for the 3rd image. The 2nd image is inked a couple of times and the 1st image only once, to get the colour variation. The Buffalo Check background stamp I also did with the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour, reinking about 7 or 8 times!

Baby Bear & Buffalo Check with Copper for Colour Creations Crumb Cake Challenge by Kae Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.JPG

I used the Versamark inkpad and wiped it along the edges of the checked layer and dipped it in copper embossing powder and heat set. I love how it gives a jagged look and not the perfect layer. I added a copper foil layer using the Layering Squares Scallop framelit before adding the baby bear layer with dimensionals. I love the copper trim bow too. Those metallic brass brads you’ll find on page 198 of the Annual catalogue!

Colour Creations: Coastal Cabana with Bella & Friends

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Coastal Cabana!!! I have to say, I was so excited that it returned with the colour revamp this year. I just adore it ♥

I got inspiration from Tina Rappe for this card, but changed it up to suit our Australian paper sizes. I also made one for my daughter’s 12th birthday with the Pretty Kitty which you can see here. This was one of the cards I taught at my last card class too!

Today I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP which is a stack of 6″ x 6″. This pack doesn’t actually have Coastal Cabana as one of its colours, but I thought this coordinated quite well anyway.

The front panel is embossed using the Basket Weave TIEF. I thought it was perfect for this card, as I imagine most puppies having a basket to sleep in!

The puppy is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils; Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Real Red then used the Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colour.

I had a small strip of the Designer Paper left over, so I added it the centre layer where I will add my message. The ribbon is a retired one from a Sale-a-bration freebie from a few years back!

Colour Creations: Cherry Cobbler

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cherry Cobbler!!!

I am using this colour combination with the Cake Soiree stamp set and coordinating dies.

I Gold Embossed the cake and the edges of the Gorgeous Grape layer.

Colour Creation with Cherry Cobbler using Stampin Up Cake Soiree by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.jpg

The sentiment on top of the cake is also embossed, but with White Embossing Powder. The photo doesn’t do the cake justice, because the gold embossing looks very dull, when in fact it is quite shiny. I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers in the 3 coordinating colours and the white pencil to add some highlight. The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in full colour and stamped off once for the lighter shade.

Colour Creations: Diorama card featuring Calypso Coral and Sea of Textures

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Calypso Coral!!!

I am using the Sea of Textures bundle to create this Diorama card. Calypso Coral is the perfect colour for the fish, coral and starfish!

I have also used Pool Party for the background and embossed it with the Seaside TIEF. Crushed Curry makes wonderful bright coral and Bermuda Bay, well it’s just a stunning colour for almost anything!

Wonderful Adventure Diaorama card using Stampin Up Sea of Textures by Kate Morgan Australia.

The measurements to make this card, I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 5⅞” x 11¾” and scored at 3½”, 4”, 7½”, 8, 11½”. Burnish all the scorelines, and die cut the circle . Remember, before you adhere the short end to the centre of the card, make sure you do all the decorating first, it makes it much easier. 😉

And here’s the inside of the card. I stamped off the netting image with Crushed Curry for a more subtle background effect on the white card, but stamped it full strength on the Pool Party card behind the circle cutout. The octopus is stamped tone on tone in Calypso Coral. The border around the die cut circle is a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP.

I love the layers of this with the Diorama style card acting like a port hole of a sunken ship.

Colour Creations: Enjoy Life, Call Me Clover

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Call Me Clover!!!

Today’s card was inspired from watching the Tour de France on TV this month. I am totally in awe of how they ride such huge distances; over 3,500 kms in 23 days.  I also love seeing all the gorgeous countryside of France. It reminds me of my trip through some of these same areas, back in 2001!

I have used the Enjoy Life stamp set with some of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper as a layer behind the cyclists. The bike image is stamped in the full colour, then stamped again as a second generation stamping to get the lighter shade and even again a third time. Don’t you think it looks just like a Peloton?!!!

The inside of the card, I have placed a layer of Very Vanilla card, stamped simply with some of the grass in Call Me Clover ink.
