Colour Creations: how about Early Espresso for Christmas?!

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

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

I have made a Christmas card, which I guess is a strange option using Early Espresso, but I think it actually works quite well, as I have used lots of metallic embossing that screams Christmas to me!

Star of Light with Stampin Ups Tin Tile TIEF by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

The Star of Light stamp set and coordinating framelits can be found in the Annual Catalogue and are still a wonderful option along with the Holiday catalogue.

Don’t you just love all the shine of the metallics on this card?

I used the Tin Tile Embossing folder with some Copper Foil before I sponged some Early Espresso ink onto it. I then sprinkled on some Gold Embossing Powder in small sections and heat set it. I repeated this process with the Silver and then the Copper Embossing Powders and finished with some Clear Embossing Powder over the Early Espresso ink that may not have been covered, otherwise it would rub off.

The star was die cut in Early Espresso card and the smaller fancy die in Copper foil.

Look at just how shiny this background is!!! So pretty. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and copper embossing powder. I used my paper snips to create the banner, but you could also use the Triple Banner Punch. I send Christmas cards to some of my friends who are male and live alone, so this is the perfect card choice for one of them this Christmas!

Heart of Christmas: Joyous Noel is divine

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am sharing more stunning product from the new Holiday Catalogue, which started today! Be sure to request your own copy of the catalogue.

Joyous Noel Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2018

I adore this Joyous Noel Designer Series paper with its hints of copper foil, just stunning. My base card is Merry Merlot, embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. A strip of the Joyous Noel DSP is added to the top and some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon… yes, reversible ribbon, is tied in a loose knot and added. I tied the copper star wire element to the ribbon with a small piece of copper metallic thread so it dangles down.

Joyous Noel Merry Christmas to All Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan, 2018

I embossed the sentiment using Versamark ink and Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it. I die cut it out using the Merry Christmas Thinlits die before dragging the edges across the Versamark ink pad and dipping them in the copper embossing powder. How pretty does it look?!

This stamp set is photopolymer, so they are easy to line up perfectly every time, and look how crisp the sentiment is, just perfect!!!

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!

Masculine Card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle with Sheet Music

Dear Crafters,

Here is another Masculine card using the Colourful Seasons Bundle, Sheet Music and Rose Wonder stamp sets, Wood Textures DSP and the Copper Metallic Foil!

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Seasonal Layers thinlits & Wood Textures DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup #cutitnothoardit DIY

I love the simplicity of this card, although it uses many different products. The Copper gives it a gorgeous shine and I love how the Sheet Music stamp is directly stamped onto the Wood Textures DSP! Can you see that under those leaves? I actually stamped it off once before stamping onto the paper so it was a little more subtle.

Masculine Thank You card using Stampin Up Seasonal Layers thinlits & Wood Textures DSP with copper by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia DIY #stampinup #cutitnothoardit

I copper embossed the Early Espresso card with the large maple leaf and heat set it before die cutting the shape. The sentiment is actually from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

I also stamped the large maple leaf on the inside of the card and on the envelope to tie it all together.

Today I have used the Window Box Thinlits dies to create a card!

I love copper metallic thread wound around the card. I tied another small piece through the centre in a knot to tie them together.

The sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set, is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

Birthday, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Carousel Birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another gorgeous suite from the Occasions 2017 catalogue, Cupcakes and Carousels. 

carousel-birthday-card-using-stampin-ups-carousel-birthday-and-cupcakes-carousels-dsp-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwith

I love how simple this card is with just stamping directly onto the Designer Series paper, but then adding a little dimension with the cupcake tops!

Begin by stamping all the images in Black ink. Then stamp the carousel again with versamark ink onto whisper white card and adding copper embossing powder and heat setting it. This set coordinates with the Up & Away thinlits, which were used to die cut the cupcake icing. Add each one with 1/2 a dimensional.

Copper Star

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about the new Star of Light Bundle.

I adore the copper coordinating with the Night of Navy and white stars in the background!

star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with copper.

star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate  star-of-light-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

The stars background was inked with White Craft ink but stamped off before applying to the Night of Navy card.

star-of-light-copper-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate  star-of-light-copper-christmas-2016-diy-stampinup-cardsbykate

I die cut some vellum with the full star before die cutting the copper foil sheet with the intricate die. Then I glued them together and added it to the card with dimensionals.

I just love how shiny that copper foil is!!!

Pine cones for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

I am officially addicted to the Christmas Pines Bundle! Because today I have another project using this amazing set. I also adore this Designer Series Paper, Presents & Pinecones. You can see two different designs here, but it is actually 1 sheet with each design on either side!!!

Christmas Pines, Presents & Pinecones DSP, Copper, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016, DIY, @cardsbykate

and the copper embossing powder is simply stunning, so much better than I was expecting it to be and it works perfectly on these pine cones!

And once again, I have coloured the rhinestones this time, with a red Sharpie pen to create little berries!

Add a little copper

Dear Crafters,

Well, what a busy weekend we had, netball grading games, 3 birthday parties, and Father’s Day celebrations… I think I need a holiday. lol

Anyway, let me start with the Holiday catalogue which is now available to everyone. I am showcasing my favourite set again, the Christmas Pines.

Kids Cards, Punch Art, Stampin' Up!, Thinlits Dies

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries, Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.
