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.

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.

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.

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

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. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Monika. 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!

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.

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 sure will miss these products but I am looking forward to sharing some new items soon.

Now let’s get started!

Today I share my favourite Sale-a-bration product, and hands down, it has to be this bright and colourful Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz. Here are the colours:

Bubbles & Fizz DSP.jpg

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

Bubble Over Suite Bubbles & Fizz DSP Stampin Up Saleabration 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia..jpg

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.

Bubble Over Suite Bubbles &amp; Fizz DSP Stampin Up Saleabration 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

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.

Blog Hop: Add Texture with Embossing!

Hello Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some creative projects by adding texture with embossing. Embossing can add a lovely dimension, and with our wonderful Stampin’ Up! products, we can create many different looks. These include Heat embossing using embossing powder, dry embossing using our textured folders or by adding embossing paste!

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 today features some new products you may not have seen yet, from the soon to be released Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure. This stamp set, Party Pandas is going to be very popular as one of the FREE stamp sets when you spend $90+ during Sale-a-bration! I have also featured the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Blog Hop with Party Pandas & Scattered Sequins by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia.JPG

I have added some Wink of Stella to each sequin, but I’m not sure if you can this in the photos? The Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and the Adhesive Backed Tutti Fruitti Sequins are also new products.

Blog Hop with Party Pandas & Scattered Sequins by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia.jpg

For my next project, I have used the Embossing Paste with Pattern Party Decorative Masks and then quickly added some gold embossing powder and heat set it. This showcases two embossing techniques in one, and look at that amazing effect!!!! I’ve also dry embossed the background, so all three embossing techniques are used on this one card!

I’ve also used the Stampin Blends Markers to colour the flower!

The embossing paste adds a wonderful texture to your projects. The best thing about it, is that you can colour it with your reinkers to change the colour, you can add embossing powder before it dries and heat set it, but you can also mix in some fine glitter!

Now let’s get started!

Project #1

The Wood Textures DSP is awesome, especially for masculine cards and projects. Here is an example where I have used it as a feature at the bottom of the card. To me, it acts a bit like a fence with the hot air balloons travelling above!

Project #2

This is the Petal Garden DSP, isn’t it stunning?!!! I just love this one. You can do so much with these papers and both sides of every double sided page is worthy of use. Here I have created two very simple cards showcasing the gorgeous floral patterns with the shimmer ribbon, Pretty Label punch and the sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Project #3

I have created some 3D boxes as gift wrapping for some very special birthdays coming up this week. These boxes are very easy to create using the Envelope Punch Board and some of our stunning DSPs. The one on the left uses a pattern from the Delightful Daisy DSP. The top one is from the Coffee Break DSP and one underneath, is from the Naturally Eclectic DSP. I have decorated them with the new mini sequin trim and the burlap ribbon.

Project #4

Here is a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbooking page using the gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. This was a gorgeous day trip during our recent driving holiday up to Sydney. One of our favourite places to visit, is the Licorice and Chocolate Factory in Junee. As you can see, we did stock up just a little at the shop on our way out!!! I also used some gold foil with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and the Birthday Blossoms & Brushwork Alphabet stamp sets.

Dear Crafters,

Tonight some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available on 1st September until 2nd January 2018. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You may have come to me from the very talented, Rachel Palmieri.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects today I am using the Musical Season Bundle with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

My projects are fairly simple, using Black, Silver and White! Not my usual Christmas style, but it is classic and I wanted to try something different to what I always use and this Designer Paper just has to be a focal point. #cutitnothhoardit

Check out that Black Shimmer ribbon too, it is just gorgeous and coordinates so well with my cards tonight.

My second card is stepped up with a some extra die cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing using the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The sentiment is silver embossed and heat set on some black card with a piece of Silver Foil behind. The French Horn is also die cut from the Silver Foil.

and the inside of both cards I stamped the same sentiment in Black ink with the Lyre behind stamped in Smoky Slate!

This card uses the same Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies, Card Front Builder Thinlits. The border frame is die cut using these thinlits.

The trees and the deer on the front are die cut with the Silver Foil. The black ribbon bow adds a touch of softness to the card. Behind the raised sentiment is a layer of silver glimmer. Not sure if you can see that clearly in the picture.

Here is the inside of my card with the tiny deer and the glimmer Christmas tree set to the bottom right hand side.

 

and for my last card today, I have paired these up with the new Mini Ornaments Embellishments, to hang in the centre of this card with the fine silver metallic thread!

Handmade Christmas Card using Stampin Ups Merry Music DSP, Musical Season & Mini Ornaments by Craft with Kate, Independent Demonstrator Australia 2017.jpg

I die cut the Lots of Labels framelits in 3 sizes to use to frame the mini ornament embellishment adding dimensionals behind the frames for added layering. The inside of the card I wanted to remain black behind the ornament, however that is not great for writing a greeting, so I cut a square out of the white layer and stamped the sentiment below it.

Favourite Colour Combination for the Art with Heart Team Blog Hop

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-current

Dear Crafters,

The Art with Heart Team ladies are selecting their favourite colour combinations to share with you tonight. Choosing the right colour scheme can be essential to your design and with Stampin’ Up!s stunning collection, there are 50 colours to choose from. There’s sure to be some combinations that work really well together and you can take inspiration from.

Now sit back and enjoy some time out of your day to cruise through our blog hop and soak up some colour explosion eye candy!

Blog Hop July 2017 - Favourite Colour Combination.jpg

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You may have come to me from my lovely team member, Amie McIlroy.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite colour combinations and I certainly do love these colours together. In fact, any colour with black can be so striking!

Favourite Colour Combination Blog Hop for Art with Heart Team by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia. TAMS Color Builder

I am using the amazing new embossing paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Favourite Colour Combination using Stampin Ups Sweet Cupcake &amp; Embossing Paste by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia for Art with Heart Team Blog Hop.

I mixed a small drop of Berry Burst ink into the paste and mixed it around thoroughly. I placed the die of the icing from the cupcake Framelits onto white cardstock. Holding it carefully, I applied a liberal amount of the paste, swirling it around to create the icing. I then used a thinner layer on the black card using the mask to create the background, hence it looks lighter in colour. Set these aside to dry.

I die cut the circles using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. The sentiment was using the stamps from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, but you may notice that the word “wishes” is not there. I thought it looked a bit silly saying Sweet Birthday Wish and needed to make it plural, so I carefully inked up the “ess” from the “you happiness” stamp, placed a piece of paper over the last “s” so it didn’t stamp on my card to create wishes!

The cupcake wrapper was stamped in Soft Suede (2nd and 3rd layers stamped off once, then twice) before being die cut and added below the icing. Once the icing was dry, I used paper snips to cut around the whole cupcake and added it to the Berry Burst circle with dimensionals.

I love the touch of gold glimmer to die cut the sentiment and the golf metallic thread added behind the circle layers.

At the very end once all of the layers were stuck down, I went back with the palette knife and added a tiny bit more of the white paste across the raised edges of the icing to add some highlighting and a swirl effect. I just want to eat it!!! At least this cupcake is better for the figure, hehe!

AWHT Blog Hop June 2017 - Favourite New Bundle.jpg

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post 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!

Today, it’s all about our favourite new bundle and it’s a no-brainer that I am loving this Beautiful Bouquet Bundle!!! I have a bright and cheery 3D posy card to share with you.

I am just loving these products and will be using them so much over the coming months for sure. Coordinating products are the best, and when you purchase them together as a bundle, you even save an extra 10%! Ask me how!

As you can see, I have used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo as my ink colours as well as Tranquil Tide for the stems and leaves and Whisper White for the background.

Check out this new embossing folder too. It’s the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which gives an even deeper impression and 3D effect.

Look at all the layers and I’m super happy that my framelits arrived so I didn’t have to fussy cut all of these… can you imagine, lol 😉

 

The little sentiment ‘For You’ is cut out using the Classic Label punch and added with the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Oh and those 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows are adorable, and you get 4 of each of the 5 new In Colors. It’s also super exciting, especially for me who is bow-challenged, as these come already made and with a mini dimensional on the back so you just stick it onto your project!!!

I also thought that this would look pretty cool stamped onto a candle as a coordinating gift!
