9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Highland Heather!!! This is a new colour this year and it is very pretty.

My first thought was, “oh what the heck will I feature?” and so I starred at all of my stamp sets for ages. I selected Abstract Impressions, as I haven’t used it very much but I adore the Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies that are part of the bundle saving 10%.

My colour combination is:

I glued the layers of Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather together then ran it through the Big Shot with the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the flower images onto whisper white card. The Grapefruit Grove I stamped off once before stamping, as I wanted a softer look. The Highland Heather is stamped in full strength. I then cut the banner at the bottom with paper snips. This was glued to the embossed layers.

The features across the centre has a Highland Heather banner, some Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim. The Vellum die cut with the large floral die and some Gold Metallic Thread sits behind the purple banner. Then I added the die cut butterfly with glue and added a ribbon bow to finish it off. I also added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls across the white banner.

Here’s a close-up so you can see all those layers!

With so much going on with this card, I didn’t think it needed a sentiment, as it would take away the butterfly focal point. What do you think?

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Grapefruit Grove!!! This is one of the current 2018-2020 In Colours.

I just adore this Petal Promenade Designer Series paper and using the black card, makes it even more dramatic!

How beautiful does it look with the Delicate Lace Edgelit down the right hand side?!!

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set was perfect for the sentiment and the flowers stamped in Grapefruit Grove. The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was the perfect embellishment to tie it all together.

I added another strip of the designer paper on the inside which shows through the delicate lace edgelit when the card is closed.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Granny Apple Green!!!

I have paired it with Mango Melody and Poppy Parade for this card with the Tropical Chic bundle and coordinating designer paper.

Colour Creations Blog Hop Granny Apple Green in Tropical Chic Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

I die cut the leaf image in Granny Apple Green card and placed some vellum behind it to soften the background designer paper pattern. The flowers were inked with Mango Melody and then I used a sponge dauber to add some Poppy Parade around the edges before stamping onto white card.

Look at that gorgeous textured weave ribbon bow, so pretty!

Red Roses are so delightful

Today’s card is a very simple project using Stampin’ Up!s Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits, Petals & more!

This card does not have a sentiment on it as yet, but it could be used for so many different occasions; Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Easter, the options are endless!

Petal Palette & Tin Tile TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

The Real Red card base is embossed using the Big Shot and the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The flowers are stamped onto Shimmery White card with Memento Black ink and coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I find it much easier to colour them first before cutting them out! I added some dimensionals to the back of the die cut and then some of the Copper Metallic Thread before placing onto the front of the card (even my nails match the card, lol).

Petal Palette & Tin Tile TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

The 1/8″ solid Real Red ribbon at the top was wrapped around the card. A tip here is to start tying the knot, but before completing the bow, place a glue dot under the join to help hold it tight and in place, then finish to tie the bow! It really does help in getting that perfect bow to sit nicely, rather than adding a bow separately.

The inside is decorated simply with another of the smaller flower bud images and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Happy birthday, Gorgeous

I made this card for a dear friend who was a work colleague for many years, but left a couple of years ago. It was her 60th birthday which also happened to fall on Father’s Day, so happy birthday Sarah!

Did you see the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the front? It is from the new Holiday catalogue, but it looks fab on this non-Christmassy card. It will be one we can use on lots of different projects, thanks Stampin’ Up!

The lady is stamped in Petal Pink ink and her dress is coloured with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen and the hat was dipped in some Melon Mambo ink to pick up a bit of coordinating colour! The sentiment is stamped over the top afterwards in Melon Mambo ink so it didn’t smudge.

As you open this card, it reveals more of the Garden Impressions Designer Paper which coordinates so well with this elegant lady, don’t you think?!! I can see her at a wonderful garden party!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. It is perfect for the fabulous Sarah.

There’s so much to love about…

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Garden Impressions Suite; Garden Impressions designer series paper with the coordinating Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions thinlits dies.

Abstract & Garden Impressions by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

My colour combination is Melon Mambo, Petal Pink & Shaded Spruce. Check out that pretty Metallic ribbon bow and you may notice I’ve also used the metal leaf trinket that also coordinates with the Petal Passion suite! The stamping of the Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce were stamped off first, to give that lighter tone.

Pretty Petal Promenade with an Interlocking Gatefold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP. Have you seen these papers? They are actually just like a photo, which is how Stampin’ Up! created them!

I love the softness of the petals and the colouring of these roses, but I also think it may be overpowering as a full layer on a card. So I have cut it into 2 panels to adhere to the front of the card in this fancy fold style.

Petal Promenade DSP with Share What You Love by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.

It is a gatefold card, but when you open it, the oval layers interlock!

I saw Dawn Griffiths make one of these, but of course I needed to alter the paper sizes for A4, rather than US sizing, so went back to my trusty file to find a gatefold card that I had made many years ago and adapted it.

Here it is open. I have stamped the image again and coloured the petals with the Wink of Stella, the same as the front!

Springtime with Garden Impressions designer paper

Hello Crafters,

Have you seen the DSP sale, buy 3 get 1 free? This month I will focus on projects using some of these stunning papers!

DSP Buy 1 Get 1 Free

I love navy and yellow together and so when I grabbed this piece of designer paper, I knew straight away I would use these two colours together. When there are flowers, there are always butterflies, so I used the Springtime Impressions thinlits die to add this stunning So Saffron butterfly. The sentiment is from the Cake Soiree stamp set stamped in Night of Navy ink and punched out with a 1″ circle punch. I wrapped some Linen thread around 3 ties added the sentiment and tied in a bow! The candy dots in the butterfly are retired but they were the perfect accent to finish this card.
