Awesomely Artistic with a bee!

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am mixing up a couple of stamp sets; Dragonfly Dreams, Awesomely Artistic along with the Window Box thinlits dies.

The white card is sponged along the edges with Crushed Curry ink to soften them.

Next I stamped the flower image with Smoky Slate ink and used my AquaPainter with inks to colour the flowers and leaves.

A small strip of glimmer paper was then added. The vellum is die cut with the Window Box Framelits die and attached to a circle of crushed curry cut with the 2″ circle punch. I embossed it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also added some gold metallic thread behind the circle before adhering to the vellum with Fast Fuse to hold it all in place firmly. The little bee was added last!

I decorated the inside of the card with some of the embossed card and two more little bumble bees!

Dragonfly Dreams

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a sneak peek of some new products arriving in January 2017 from the Occasions catalogue, the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-ups-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

I love the blues and purples in this card. I’ve used Marina Mist with Elegant Eggplant!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-ups-sragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

Below the purple die cut, I also die cut some vellum and glued it down with Tombo glue. Are you wondering why you can’t see the glue? Well, if you gently sponge it to the back of the vellum evenly, you won’t have any visibility of how you have adhered it! Same with the sentiment!

dragonflies-card-using-stampin-up-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

The top layer of the dragonfly was run through the Big Shot with a tan embossing mat so it didn’t cut through completely, but left the embossed look.

I also added some Wink of Stella to the body of the dragonfly some some added sparkle.

Watercolour Dragonflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another sneak peek of the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, but this time using the emboss resist technique.

dragonfly-dreams-card-using-stampin-up-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

I love how simple but effective this technique is!

Begin by stamping the images in Versamark ink, then add clear embossing powder and heat set.

dragonfly-dreams-card-using-stampin-ups-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

Using the AquaPainter and ink, brush on the colour blending the two together in the centre. I’ve used Calypso Coral and Marina Mist.

dragonfly-dreams-using-stampin-ups-dragonfly-dreams-bundle-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-classes-available-in-rowville-stampinup-craftwithkatemorgan

To get those dots, I dropped tiny amounts of water from the AquaPainter, let it sit for a minute or two, then dabbed off with some paper towel. This lifts the colour already added.

I also added a vellum dragonfly and some pearls to the body.
