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!

Farewell, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Sympathy for a beloved pet

Hello Friends,

My project today is with a touch of sadness for a teacher colleague who lost her beloved best friend during the recent school holidays 😦

This is the card I made for her, in the hope that it may bring some comfort and lasting memories of her loved, Becks (named after David Beckham)!

He was a little white fella, so I obviously had to use the Bella & Friends stamp set. I stamped the image in black ink and then used my blender pen with some smoky slate ink to add some highlighting. Of course I needed to add a red collar with the red heart with a touch of Wink of Stella on top!

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist, then White. The floral image is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist on the front and the inside panel is stamped off once before stamping on the card.

Bella & Friends

Dear Crafters,

Well I can tell you that I placed my pre-order for brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue product yesterday!!! You can do this too, but only if you are a demonstrator or join today so you can get product earlier. Ask me how!

So here are the new 2017-2019 In Colours. Which one is your favourite?

2017-2019 In Colours by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I have some cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are the first two I started with from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, which I will show you shortly.

Watercolouring images of Pretty Kitty

I used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Isn’t this image just the cutest? I love the sentiment ‘You’ve got a friend in me’.

I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

This next one is using Marina Mist and the clouds and sentiments are from the Life Me Up stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It coordinates so well with this puppy floating away tied to a balloon!

and the last one for today is using some of the new copper trim that is a new product available from 1st June. It can be used like ribbon or it can be opened up to look a bit like a mesh bag or netting. I thought it looked a bit like the puppy had chewed it!!! lol

These cards could be used for any occasion, so I tend to leave off sentiments and add them later if I want them for a specific event.

What do you think about these cute cards?

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Techniques & Tutorials

Faux Iris Twist Technique

Dear Crafters,

Well the school holidays are well and truly over and back to work hasn’t been the easiest, but today I share this card that is quite the opposite. It is an easy technique but super effective!

I have used the stunning Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper (Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White).

cards-by-kate-faux-iris-fold-technique-pop-of-pink-feminine-birthday-card-stampinupautralia-cardsbykatemorgan-diy

I stamped the sentiment ‘Enjoy’ from the Bella & Friends stamp set and the ‘It’s Your day’ sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set.

I saw this idea on Julie Davison’s YouTube channel, so thank you Julie!

I just love how with a couple of double sided DSP pages, you can create such a stunning card. This is a great technique to use up those scrap pieces you have saved for that special project!
