Piece of Cake for Colour Creations Mango Melody Blog Hop, Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

My card base is Mango Melody and I randomly stamped the cake image on the same ink colour across the front of the card. I stamped the same image on Whisper White card and punched it out with the Cake Builder punch. I also stamped the flowers and fussy cut them to add to the top of the cake. I applied Wink of Stella to the flowers and the flowers on the cake. Not sure if you can see that in the photo?!

The stand is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold emboss powder. I coloured part of it with the Stampin Write Marker. I layered some Coastal Cabana card and white card with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. These layers were all sponged around the edges with a dauber.

The sentiment is stamped and the Classic Label Punch to cut it out and add with a dimensional.

Quick & Simple Square card using Tea Room Specialty DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick and easy square card using the pretty Tea Room Specialty DSP. This designer paper really does it all for you in creating such a simple card! The only thing I have done is add some ribbon and the sentiment onto a white die cut Stitched Labels Framelit and mounted the designer paper onto cardstock.

I’ve used 3 different stamp sets for this card; Itty Bitty stamp set ‘for you’, the flower is from Accented Blooms stamp set and Varied Vases stamp set for the inside sentiment. The Wink of Stella was used to colour the floral image next to the sentiment!

Colour Creations: Around the Corner with Blackberry Bliss

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. This week we are featuring a returning colour, Blackberry Bliss!!!

How pretty are these Delicate Lace Edgelits dies?!!! I have die cut them in Blackberry Bliss card stock and glued them to the front of the Balmy Blue card. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner, Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

The Animal Outings bundle is so Australian with its choice of animals, but today I’m using the cute little rhino. Those lace edgelits remind me of the skin of the rhino so I felt it appropriate to stamp it and cut it with the coordinating Animal Friends thinlits. Loving that there are coordinating thinlits for this stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner & Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.

I coloured the rhino and the little bird with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then added it with an action/wobble accessory… it’s like a spring and it makes him move. These are very easy to make by punching 2 small circles of card stock and wrapping some thin craft wire around a pen/marker 3 or 4 times. Remove the wire from the pen, cut the wire from the roll and using some tape, add each end of your coil to a circle. Place the action wobble behind your rhino with some glue and add it to your card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too. Here is have used the sentiments from Around the Corner, perfect detail for a birthday card.

Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Bermuda Bay with Accented Blooms

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today we are featuring one of my favourite colours, Bermuda Bay!!!

Today I’ve used the Accented Blooms stamp set with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch. I stamped the image with Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I coloured the images with Stampin’ Write Markers; Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay. Then I added some Wink of Stella to the Bermuda Bay flowers to add some shine and highlight the colour.

Accented Blooms Birthday card Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.jpg

Using the Trio punch, I took out a notch on the spine of the card to thread the new gorgeous grape mini striped ribbon through and tie it in a bow!

The sentiment is from the Best Bunny stamp set. I used the Stamparatus to create this. I had the sentiment on one plate and the solid image on another. I stamped the sentiment first with Versamark and then add the white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I placed it back in the Stamparatus and inked the solid image with Bermuda Bay ink and stamped it a couple of times to get a deep, rich colour. Then I used a tissue to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed sentiment. This was then punched out and added with dimensionals.

Sweet scene on the Waterfront

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the Waterfront Stamp set in the Occasions catalogue 2018. I don’t actually have this set, but a few team members got together recently and we love to share stamps sets on the day, that we may not own ourselves. It’s a great way for team bonding and getting to try sets we may not appreciate until you have a go!

Naturally, I opened it up and wondered where to start, so I turned to the iPad and Pinterest and I was inspired by Sarah Fleming from the USA. Thank you Sarah!

Gorgeous Sweet Soiree birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalogue. I just adore the hand-painted designs and the silver foil accents.

Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP

Oh I love the colours in this…. Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Silver Foil & Whisper White.

For my card base, I used Berry Burst and Marina Mist then the layer of DSP. The sentiment is from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and cut out with the Classic Label Punch. Some silver glimmer paper is cut into a banner with paper snips and some of the ribbon from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit behind.

The Silver Baker’s Twine bow is coloured using a sponge dauber and Marina Mist ink and adhered with a glue dot.

Celebrate the New Year with colour!

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2018 brings you much joy, love, health and happiness.

Today’s card is a fun card to celebrate the New Year, with some Birthday Ribbon bows, using the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 2 days time!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia DIY

I have used some pretty bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This is a photopolymer stamp set, so it is quite easy to line up the two-step stamping for the bows. Check out those gorgeous Tutti-fruitti Adhesive-backed Sequins too, they will also be available and I’m sure they will be a huge hit when the catalogue goes live. These were one of the first embellishments I added to my order.

The fringing on the edges of the panel where the sentiment is, was created by many little paper snips along the edges of the Flirty Flamingo paper. Doesn’t it look cool?!!!

Celebrate with Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

Don’t look too closely at the Old Olive stamping… I recently reinked my stamp pad and it was a little too juicy!!!

The “celebrate” sentiment was only part of a stamp in the set, so I actually used a Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up just that one word before stamping!

Happy Birthday, Panda (Sneak peek)

Dear Crafters,

Today I have the cutest little birthday card with some pandas. Aren’t they just adorable? They are one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can select for FREE with any $90+ order starting 3rd January!

Birthday card using Stampin Ups Party Pandas & Special Celebrations, Saleabration 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia.

You can see the panda in the middle has a shadow, that is because I stamped it and then cut it out and adhered it to the card on dimensionals for a 3D effect. The same with the balloons!

Here’s the sentiment on the inside of the card with another cute panda.

You know when you finish a card and then you pick up the inkpad to close it and you drop it on your project? Argh, well I did that and I was so annoyed with myself. Have you ever done this too?

See this picture below, it was on the front of the card. I had spent so much time on it, I couldn’t bare to throw it away and start again, so I embellished it. Yep, I drew the string by hand and then added another gold glitter balloon!!! Problem solved. Have another look at the finished card and you would never have known ♥
