Blended Peony on Just Jade

Here I am back again with another card using the Prized Peony bundle and another 60th birthday card!

This time I have stamped the large image and coloured it with Blends Combo Markers; Magenta Madness, Petal Pink and Just Jade.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

Look at that incredible embossed Just Jade layer, using the Greenery Textured Embossing Folder. The Vanilla layer is also embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder for a more subtle look. I love the addition of the lace trim, giving it a lovely feminine touch, to tie in the background layer.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony Magenta Madness by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Colour Combination Prized Peony Magenta

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blackberry Bliss

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blackberry Bliss!

My card tonight was inspired by Jennifer Frost who shared this background technique, although I need lots more practice at it!!!! 😉

It was a fun way of creating a more abstract background to my card.

Colour Creations Showcase - Blackberry Bliss - Dressed to Impress by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I started with some Purple Posy card stock and began swiping the Highland Heather inkpad across the card, top to bottom, mainly around the edges. Then to build up the colour, I went over it with Rich Razzleberry then Blackberry Bliss ink.  It creates such a fun texture and I’m sure it will look different every time.

Then I stamped the parfum and flowers in Memento ink onto Purple Posy card, die cut them out and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella.

The larger leaves are die cut with the new Forever Flourishing dies, but I stamped the floral image across the leaves in coordinating colour to give it some interest. This same floral image has been stamped in the top left and bottom right corners of the background card in Blackberry Bliss ink for a subtle impact.

I stamped the dots in Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set them. I tie in the white, I also added two smaller leaf dies and a white bow. The perfum and roses are popped up on dimensionals.

Smile for Lovely You

This Lovely You Bundle was also added to my shopping cart as soon as I was able to order it during our demonstrator pre-order period. I just love the smaller floral images, especially because they are perfect for creating the Stamp in the Round style of card (SITR).

By creating a template to use in your Stamparatus, you can stamp an image, rotate the cardstock 90o and stamp again. Continue this process and you end up with a stunning design all in perfect position.

I used the retired wood grain papers on this card, but I have some of the new In Good Taste papers arriving very soon, which are out of this world, amazing! I cannot wait to share some projects with you using those new papers.

Ornate garden in black!

What inspires you?

That may sound like an odd question. But, stop and think about it.

Where do you get ideas from? What sparks the creative thoughts flowing? Have you been feeling in a slump lately?

With everything going on right now, I am sure that many are not feeling like their peppy selves or are maybe finding a hard time feeling “creative”.

Keep looking for that creative spark!

The good news is there is only 1 more sleep until the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue goes live and you can look at all those gorgeous pages of amazing and inspirational photos of new projects!

What are you most looking forward to seeing? I cannot wait to get the new In Color Inkpads!!!!

Tonight’s card features the Ornate Garden Suite of products. I stamped the large image on black card with Versamark ink and heat set it with White Emboss Powder.

Ornate Garden SDSP

Then I coloured the entire image with the White Chalk Marker and let it dry before colouring with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Doesn’t it give a cool effect?!!!

The Designer Paper is so colourful, I actually cut it about a third of the way down, flipped it over to reveal the other side and glued them to the card base. The white ribbon is wrapped around to cover the join! The image was then added with dimensionals.

On the inside, I placed another image in the bottom corner to carry the theme over.

Hello, Ornate Garden Suite

Tonight’s card was made for my mother in law to say Hello during this crazy time in isolation, using the new items from the upcoming Annual catalogue starting 3 June. However, these items are available now as an early release!

Ornate Garden SDSP

Ornate Garden card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and white emboss powder added and heat set. This sentiment is from the Seriously The Best stamp set which is retiring, along with the Leaf Punch 😦

Ornate Garden card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020.

On the inside, I just placed the simple sentiment and a flower image in the corner, leaving plenty of room for my message.

TIP: The Whisper White Seam Binding ribbon was a little too much for this card, so I simply coloured it with my Stampin’ Blends Marker to colour it Old Olive to match the card base!

Farewell Beautiful Bouquet

I am very sad to be saying farewell to quite a few of the products in today’s card; the gorgeous Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set, the Best Dressed DSP and the In Color, Lovely Lipstick 😦

I have teamed these up with the Beauty Abounds stamp set, but this one is staying in the new catalogue.

Stamp in the Round card featuring Beautiful Bouquet & Beauty Abounds stamp sets & Best Dressed DSP from Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I placed a piece of 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ white card stock in the Stamparatus and stamped in a circle using a template. You can find loads of video tutorials on this technique, Stamp in the Round on YouTube. The mat layers are Lovely Lipstick placed on a White card base.

Have you tried this technique? It is such a fun way to create a card and especially if you like to be precise with your layouts 😉

For the Lady Golfer

Most golfing cards that you see are usually of a masculine theme. Well tonight, I have made a feminine version for all those ladies out there!

Feminine Golf card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

My mum plays golf and she has made lots of friends through her golf club, so I’m sure they will appreciate this one.

The DSP layer is embossed with the Absolute Argyle embossing folder for extra texture. The image is actually one of sheets of DSP. It has multiple line images which can be coloured and I love that they include a lady image.

The wooden elements are a lovely touch and I stamped it with the Stazon Black ink so it doesn’t bleed into the wood.

On the inside, simply stamp a sentiment and add a strip of DSP.
