Sketch Challenge for our last Art with Heart Blog Hop for 2018!

Blog Hop Card Sketch Nov 18

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring a card sketch. We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on this sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share your projects with us!

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from our hop organiser, Ros Davidson. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!

My first project tonight uses the stamp set, Enjoy Life with a technique called the Floating Window. The card base is Tranquil Tide with a Square die cut out of the front. I placed a small piece of Berry Burst Metallic Edged Ribbon, cut on angles, below the square to act a bit like a window shelf.

On the inside of the card, I used my D size clear block and tapped it onto the Pool Party Inkpad, then spritzed it with some water and stamped it onto the Whisper White card for a cool watercolour effect. You must wait for this to dry before stamping the images over the top in Stazon Black ink and the female image in Berry Burst ink. By using the Stamparatus, I could then keep the figure in the same position to be able to ink the window sheet in the exact same place so it lays over the top of the image on the inside of the card when you open and close it.

A piece of window sheet is stamped with Stazon Black ink with the grass and the female image only.  Using the Stamparatus, I could get a nice dark image, by re-inking the stamps a couple of times. You may be able to see the two images layered in this photo!

My second project is a quick Christmas card, using some of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper with some Frost White Shimmer Paint sponged over the top. The sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink and silver embossing powder applied, then heat set with a heat tool. I also added a square of Silver Foil and some Silver Glimmer cut with the Triple Banner Punch.

Colour Challenge Blog Hop: Pink!

October-blog-hop-Think Pink.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the colour pink. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative with the various shades of pink that Stampin’ Up! offer in our collection of 53 different colours available.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from my good friend, Sharon Davern. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project I am using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with heat embossing and watercolouring. With October being Breast Cancer awareness month, this was the perfect stamp set to use!

 I stamped the image multiple times with Versamark ink, applied White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Then I used the AquaPainter to apply water and some ink starting with Lovely Lipstick at the top and Flirty Flamingo at the bottom until they mixed in the centre. Once these dried, I added a wash of Smoky Slate ink over the entire background.

Blog Hop- Pink! Ribbon of Courage Watercolouring Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.

The sentiment is heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. Look at that gorgeous Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around 3 times and tied in a bow with a small piece of Gold mini sequin trim!

I adore this sentiment for the inside of the card.

My second project is very much a girly card, using the stamp set, Flourishing Phrases and lots of “Stella”!

Can you see the Wink of Stella on the flower and leaves? It is also around the edges of the sentiment! Oh yes, I really do love my “Stella”!!! I also added some small pearl jewels for an extra feminine touch.

This is all I have done on the inside of this card, as I’m not sure whether it will be used for a wedding card, special big ‘0’ birthday or something else as yet. When I know, I can add the appropriate sentiment.

Blog Hop: My favourite products in the Holiday catalogue!

September blog hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I am using some of my favourite products from this catalogue; Dashing Deer Bundle and the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with its stunning copper foil accents. I also love the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in 6″ x 6″ and in 3 colours; Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide. I have used 2 of these in my projects today!

My first project is a card using Gray Granite as the base. I would never think to use this colour for Christmas, but in fact, it looks amazing and it is one of the colours in the DSP.

Dashing Deer &amp; Joyous Noel Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2018

Check out the inside of this card though! I have made a banner at the top with some more of this gorgeous Designer Paper by scoring it in the centre and 1″ either side so it folds in to the card with a metal snowflake embellishment hanging from it with copper metallic thread.

Dashing Deer &amp; Joyous Noel Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018

My next project is a small gift box that I cased from Pootles in the UK. This stunning reversible ribbon is featured again wrapped around it, tied in a bow, to hold the box closed. This box measures 3¾” high x 3” wide x 1½” deep. You could fit lots of little Christmas chocolates inside, yummy!

I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide Sprigs from the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and added the copper star embellishment with some copper metallic thread hanging down the front.

Dear Crafters,

We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin Blends Markers or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps. Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially the limited edition colour your season products.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Claire Daly. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My projects tonnight are a sneak peek into the upcoming Holiday catalogue available from 5 September and I’m using the Cauldron Bubble Bundle.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Cauldron Bubble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia
I have used Gorgeous Grape for the card base and a layer of Call Me Clover. I stamped the stars in Gorgeous Grape ink before adding the spider web, die cut in Basic Black card. The little spider trinkets are also part of this suite and add that extra touch! The cat, broomstick and the witch are stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured in with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Call Me Clover, Highland Heather, Basic Black, Ivory and Bronze. Then these were die cut and added to the card with dimensionals.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Cauldron Bubble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018

For my next card, I have used Basic Black as my card base with a layer of Highland Heather, and a strip of the Toil & Trouble DSP. Under this is a piece of the stunning Black Glitter Organza ribbon! It is so sparkly and pretty. I have used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in these images and blended the colour with a Blender Pen.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Stampin Up Cauldron Bubble Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018
Can you see how sparkly the caudron is and the spider web?!!! Well, to create these, I used the new Champagne Glimmer Paint and an AquaPainter to cover a piece of Basic Black card. Once it is dry, you can die cut the cauldron. I stamped the cauldron again in Granny Apple Green and Real Red, coloured them with Watercolour pencils, before fussy cutting the flames and the bubbles and gluing them to the cauldron. The stars are also created in a similar way, with Champagne Glimmer Paint of Black and Gold Shimmer Paint on whisper white card.

I also coloured the hat and used the Granny Apple Green watercolour pencil to create the band across the hat, gluing it on with Tombo Multipurpose glue. Make sure you purchase your Watercolour Pencils Assortment 2 pack now, as they won’t be available after 31st August. They really are awesome for anyone who loves to colour!

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.

with the card fully open, I have added some stamping to coordinate with the design on the front!

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018..JPG

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

Animal Outings Rhino die_2018.jpg

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

Annual Catalogue Stampin Up 2018 Pg48.JPG

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.

Blog Hop: In Colors

Blog Hop In Colour.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring “in color” theme. Check out the new 2018 – 2020 in colors and lets not forget the current 2017 – 2019 in colors. If you would like a copy of the 2018-2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Rebecca Jacovou. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I am so excited about the new upcoming in colors, they are just so bright and cheery and I love them all. They are just like a rainbow of colour and that makes me happy, so my first two cards use the 2018-2020 in colors!

This first card I have just cut panels of card and glued them to a piece of Very Vanilla card then glued it to the front of the Lovely Lipstick (my favourite in colour!) card base. A piece of Dotted Ribbon was placed across the centre. The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added with dimensionals.

Sentiment of My Heart In Color Blog Hop 2018 Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

This stamped sentiment is the Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart and it says everything to me and everyone else on this blog hop, what crafting means to us. Isn’t it beautiful??!

This next one is also using these same in colors; Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch. The new Handwritten background stamp was placed in the Stamparatus to get this 3-toned effect. The Stampartus made it so much easier to ink up the sections starting with the lightest to the darkest, lining up the image perfectly. And if you haven’t got the crisp image and miss a little, you can ink it up again and re-stamp!

2018 In Color Blog Hop Handwritten Love What You Do Thank You card Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

The sentiment and flower image are from the Love What You Do stamp set. Can you see the Wink of Stella on those petals? So pretty! I added some gingham ribbon and Faceted Dots.

2018 In Color Blog Hop Handwritten Love What You Do Thank You card Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia.

This next card uses Berry Burst & Powder Pink, 2017-2019 in colors, paired with Whisper White. Again I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment, but stamping it in Powder Pink, then using the Berry Burst Stampin’ Write marker to apply ink to the bottom of the sentiment end re-stamping for that dual tone.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan Australia

I have used the new Abstract Impressions bundle which will be available on 1st June. I was worried when the Butterflies thinlits were retiring, so this bundle was a must have for me!  I really wanted the butterfly to be the feature, so I die cut the image in Berry Burst card and the floral image in Whisper White, the same as the card base.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out the centre of the butterfly. Can you see what I’ve done? It’s like a handmade bead! I cut a 4½” strip of DSP, tapered off at one end. Add some glue and roll it up around a skewer. Leaving the bead on the skewer, I then added some Fine Tip glue over the entire thing to make it shiny (a bit hard to tell in the photo) and let it dry overnight across the top of a bowl before adding it to my butterfly. I glued a little twine in the top for its antennae.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Retiring Products 2018

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing our favourite retiring products and mine is definitely the Watercolour Wings stamp set and coordinating dies, Bold Butterfly framelits & Butterflies thinlits. 

Butterfly card using retiring Stampin Up Watercolour Wings, Butterflies Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Australia..JPG

I have also used 3 of my favourite retiring colours; Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and I will miss them, however there are some new stunning colours to replace them. Yay!

The 1/8″ metallic gold ribbon is also retiring, so make sure you get some of that added to your shopping cart. I have used it on the Rose Red card above in horizontal stripes. I also added Versamark ink to the centre of the butterfly as well as sponged it around the edges of the Rose Red card, added some Gold embossing powder and heat set it for added shine. I used my Fine Tip glue pen to add to the dots on the butterfly, gold embossing powder and heat set!

My next card uses the same products but I have teamed it up with the stunning Painted with Love DSP which will also retire on 31st May. It has this amazing gold through it. This card is a pop through card, where the butterfly slides through the slit when you open it!

I wanted to show you all the different designs, so what better way to do it, than with the herringbone technique!

I sliced the DSP into 1/2″ x 12″ strips. I took a piece of scrap card cut to 4″ x 5-5/8″ and covered it in Fast Fuse. Then I began placing the strips starting with the Lemon Lime Twist bubbles one across the centre. I kept adding strips in different directions, cutting them off at the edge of the card. This creates an amazing background!

The Stitched Shapes Circle Framelits, break up all the straight lines and helps take the eye to the feature of the bottle like a target.

I die cut the large bottle in white card from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies. I used a sponge dauber to add some Lemon Lime Twist ink to it, applying more at the bottom and lighter at the top. Check out those gorgeous Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes on the bottle. I even used some of the extra strips to decorate the inside of the card!

For my next card, I have used the same Designer Series Paper with the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure with the Trifold Shutter card technique.

I coloured the images using a blender pen and ink pads; Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate. The Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to die cut the shoes image.

As you can see, this DSP can be used in many different ways, not just with the Bubble Over Suite!

Today I share my favourite suite in the new Occasions catalogue as I have previously mentioned and I just love how many items are in this Petal Passion Suite.

Petal Passion Suite

I am using Pool Party as my base card with a layer of the Petal Passion DSP. Yes, these papers are black and white and can look quite harsh at first, but wait until you see them with some colour!

I coloured the DSP with my Stampin’ Blends; Calypso Coral Combo, Old Olive Combo and Pool Party Light for the background. What a difference it makes!!!

I also coloured the bird with the Pool Party Combo blends pack and the Colour Lifter.  I die cut some vellum circles using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies and glued them down by lightly sponging on some Tombo Multipurpose glue, so you can’t see it. I then added some of the gold metallic ⅛” ribbon and tied another piece in a bow and added it with a glue dot.

The sentiment is heat embossed with gold embossing powder and it looks stunning on that framelit.

The gold strips down each side of the DSP is some Washi tape.
