If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, 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!

Project #1 This Woven Threads DSP is just stunning and features the new In Colours. I have chosen the piece with Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile. By punching the pieces of DSP and gluing them down with a small gap between them, creates this wonderful effect. The ribbon and the Ornate Frames Dies are from the Holiday catalogue and coordinate perfectly. These dies are part of the Halloween suite, however I love them on their own with other stamped sentiments.

Project #2 The Perennial Essence DSP is stunning and reflects Monet’s artworks. Having studied art at school, this was the first DSP added to my list. The Floral Essence Bundle coordinates with it and I added the flower to the bottom corner, so the DSP is the showcase.

Here is a closer look at the Delicata Golden Glitz inkpad on the vellum. I wasn’t sure how well it would dry and I was impatient, so I added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I was amazed that the glimmer still showed through so well!

Project #3 This card is a CASE (Copy & Share Everything) from a card on page 132 of the Annual Catalogue, although I have changed up lots of the products. The See a Silhouette DSP is so bold and bright and I found this pattern very overpowering, but by cutting the images out, you produce something wonderful! I adore these Heirloom 3D Frames too for the embossed background.

Heart of Christmas: Week 6

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

This week I am taking a break from the Brightly Gleaming Suite and using some of the products from the Annual catalogue, and they are not even Christmas sets!

Can you believe this is the Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating Nature’s Roots dies?

Christmas card using Stampin Up Rooted in Nature by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.jpg

It is simply stamped images loads of times and then a few extras which I die cut and added with Tombo glue and/or dimensionals. I also added the new Shimmery Crystal Effects to four of the trees (the two Seaside Spray ones & two Night of Navy ones).

How gorgeous is that Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon? It is super soft and pliable to create the bow and has a silver thread through it. Wrap the ribbon around the card layer and where you are going to tie the bow, place a glue dot under it to hold it knot while you have your hands free to tie the bow. A really great tip I’ve learned along the way!

I haven’t put any sentiments on these as yet, as I am waiting on an order to arrive with more appropriate Christmas greetings.

Wildly Happy Collage with Pigment Sprinkles

Tonight I have a collage scene using the fox image from the Wildly Happy stamp set. I have also used the Pigment Sprinkles on the Fluid 100 Water colour paper to create that textured background of the grass. Simply wet the paper with an AquaPainter and carefully sprinkle a very small amount of colour onto the paper. You will see it spread instantly and such vibrant colour. I also added a little water in the Stampin’ Spritzer to add a little more water to spread the colour. Leave it to dry completely before cutting the hill shape with scissors. The smaller hill is Mossy Meadow card, cut with the Layering Oval framelits and embossed with the Suble Dynamic Embossing Folder for extra texture.

The tree is cut using the Sweet Silhouettes dies in Early Espresso card. I added this with mini dimensionals to add some height above the foxes.

The foxes are coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers and fussy cut before adding them to the card. I love how they are curled up resting under the tree!

Silhouette Scenes with the Rice Background Technique

Tonight I have a card that is created using the Rice Background Technique. Really it is a watercolour wash on the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper and while it’s still very wet, sprinkle some rice (or rock salt) over it and allow it to dry without moving it. Once it is dry, the rice draws the colour from the paper. Brush off the rice and you are left with this lovely effect. Mine is used to look like rain at sunset!

I stamped the image (Silhouette Scenes) with Versamark ink and applied the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

Heirloom texture and embossing

When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.

Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.

I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!

I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

Christmas Blog Hop with the Art with Heart Team

Art With Heart Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on 4 September.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday 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 talented, 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!

I have made a card and a coordinating Christmas Bon Bon for tonight’s hop using the Brightly Gleaming Suite of products from the new Holiday catalogue.

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

My Night of Navy card base (29.7cm x 10.5cm) is folded in half. I added a piece of DSP and then a piece of vellum. I stamped the holly in Mossy Meadow ink onto Very Vanilla card twice. I coloured the leaves with the AquaPainter and Mossy Meadow ink. The berries are coloured by putting a bit of the Celestial Copper ink pad onto a clear block and used my Wink of Stella to pick up some of the colour to add to the berries (the photo doesn’t do it justice). The Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements are used for the leaves behind for extra interest.

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan,Australia..JPG

The sentiment is also stamped with the Celestial Copper ink onto Very Vanilla card and cut out using scissors. It is added with dimensionals. Each of the baubles is created using 6 of the small ornament punched pieces, scored in half and joined together with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. A small copper star element is added at the top of each bauble. I used a Copper Sharpie to hand draw the strings.

This next image is directly from the Holiday catalogue and I loved that we can use this amazing specialty paper and the punch to make Christmas Bon Bons. So of course I had to make one too!

2019_HOL_P31_A-11.jpg

So here is mine to coordinate with my card!

AWH Christmas Blog Hop 2019 using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming Suite by Kate Morgan, Australia..JPG

To make my Christmas Bon Bon with the Brightly Gleaming Suite
I used a piece of 12″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.
Place the 8½” side into the Simply Scored and score at 1¾”, 3½”, 5¼”, 7″.
Gently fold on each scoreline.
Using the smaller of the two ornament punches, push the punch all the way into the DSP, centring it on each scoreline and punch on both sides (Keep these punched pieces to make a card).
Place the 12″ side in the Simply Scored, and carefully score both ends at 1½”.

Gently fold on the scorelines so that the short ends are folded back onto the side you want showing.
Fold the Bon Bon into the tube shape and push it down flat with the shorter end on the inside.
Place a strip of Tear & Tape along the edge, and join them together (you may need to insert the punch again to punch out the 1/2 punched shapes).
Push in the ends and tie some of the ½” Classic Weave Ribbon into a bow, but remember to add your treats before you do!

Another milestone with Double figures!

Today we had another milestone in our house; my baby turned 10 and it is truly a bit of a shock to us! How did that happen…. a teenager and a 10 year old in two weeks?!!! LOL

Anyway, she wanted a card with flowers on it, so of course my go to floral stamp set at the moment is Beautiful Friendship, so that it what was used.

Beautiful Friendship – $38.00 (#149252)

Here is her card!

10th birthday card feminine using Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship stamp set by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019..JPG

I used the retired Little Numbers dies (I’ll never get rid of them!) and the wishes is from the Well Written Dies. How awesome does this look with the glittery black organdy ribbon and the black border of the Nested Labels dies?!! I added some Wink of Stella to the number 10 too.

My daughter loves aqua, so I thought the Coastal Cabana cardstock was a good choice for the base card. On the inside, I stamped the rose and leaves and then added the gorgeous and perfect sentiment from the same stamp set to the centre. I was really happy with how this card turned out and she loved it!

Tonight’s card is a fancy trifold card using the Sailing Home bundle. Purchase this stamp set and coordinating dies together and save 10%.

don’t you just love these colours together? I sure do and they are Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate and a Soft Suede wheel!

I love using Designer paper as the card base. When they are double sided, you want to show off both sides of the paper and this is a great fold to do this. Don’t you agree?

I popped up the lighthouse and the anchor on dimensionals for added depth and tied a little piece of twine through the anchor.

Colour Creations: Tranquil Tide with Cling Wrap Technique

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 50th and final Stampin’ Up! colour; Tranquil Tide.  I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this blog hop each week and thank Catherine for coordinating it all year long! xx

This card uses the Cling Wrap technique and the Rooted in Nature Suite of products.

The cling wrap technique is using some cling wrap or even an old plastic bag from the supermarket, scrunch it up and drab it into an inkpad and then dab onto the cardstock. Repeat this process with a couple of other colours. I have used Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana & Soft Sea Foam onto a small piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Once I had the coverage I wanted, I stamped the image & sentiment in Black ink.

Rooted in Nature for Colour Creations Tranquil Tide Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019..

Then I placed the card into my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it on the diagonal. No special measurement, just sliced it twice. I glued it onto some tranquil tide card leaving a small gap between each section, before mounting onto some black cardstock. Doesn’t it give a great effect?!!!

The 1/2″ Woven Ribbon (retired) was the perfect addition for my Tranquil Tide card.

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

Rooted in Nature for Colour Creations Tranquil Tide Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019.

Once the card was finished, I added some Wink of Stella (my favourite product!) over the tree image and added a couple of rhinestones.

On the inside I had to add a layer of tranquil tide then some whisper white to be able to write on. It looked a little plain, so I added a small strip of the same DSP.

AWH Blog Hop featuring new Annual Catalogue items!!

Blog Hop May 2019.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new 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 talented, Kimberly Hern. 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 I am focusing on the Floral Essence Bundle: Floral Essence Stamp Set & Perennial Flower Punch. I am also using the coordinating Perennial Essence DSP, Perennial Essence 12″x 12″ Vellum & Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

Would you believe, the Leaf Punch also coordinates perfectly with this stamp set!!!

I got out 1 sheet of each design of the DSP and cut each one up into 6 equal pieces measuring 10cm x 14.3cm, so I could make the most of the stunning Monet inspired designs.

I made all of these cards to gift to my mum for Mother’s Day. She just loves receiving my cards to use for her own gifts.

This first card I used a base of Petal Pink and created the frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I adhered it using the Foam Adhesive Strips. I stamped the flower and leaves on the vellum and punched them out. A tip with stamping on the vellum: there is a smooth side and slightly rougher side. Make sure you stamp on the rough side for better results.

The flower I also used my stylus tip of the Take Your Pick Tool to create the white lines, resting it on the Pierce Mat.

Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss & Petal Pink feature in this one and those flowers were stamped and fussy cut.

This card uses Blueberry Bushel and I think it is my favourite of all of these. Pity I couldn’t find my Embossing Buddy before I stamped and embossed the sentiment 😦

Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry features with a Versamark stamped sentiment which is heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Here are some of those flowers close up. How cute are those fluffy floral centers?!!!

You may think these cards are fairly simple, but I sure didn’t want to cover up that stunning DSP!

I have one more card using a few of the new 2019-2021 In Colours. Here I stamped off the larger solid flower in Seaside Spray, then stamped the smaller flower over the top in full strength with Rococo Rose for the centres. The leaves are stamped off in Pretty Peacock ink and then I used the Wink of Stella to colour them, lightly blending some of the ink colour. The 1/2″ scallop Line Ribbon in Rococo Rose was wrapped across the front. I folded some extra ribbon into a flower shape and added a Perennial Essence Center on top.
