Christmas Wreath Punch Art

Today, I am sharing a Christmas wreath card created using the Sprig Punch!

This punch is in the Holiday catalogue and has been super popular, so I’m crossing my fingers it may roll over into the next Annual catalogue.

I have a Thick Whisper White card base with a layer of Garden Green card and some DSP from the Santa’s Workshop DSP pack. I punched about 20 sprigs in Garden Green card and began layering them in a circle shape and building it up until it looked reasonably full.  I added a few Poppy Parade berries using the 1/8″ handheld circle and adhered them with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green on Poppy Parade card and die cut and added with dimensionals. The bow was some of the Tea Room ribbon combo pack from the Annual catalogue. The HAPPY was die cut in Gold Glimmer and added with Tombo glue. Doesn’t it look pretty across the wreath?!!!

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

Tonight I’m sharing a sneak peek of one of the bundles in the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue; Piece of Cake stamp set with coordinating Cake Builder punch!

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.

Thanks Coach for a wonderful netball season!

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a Double Z Fold Card made for my kids’ netball coaches… yep, there are 2 coaches so I had to make 2 of them!!!

I must admit, it did take quite a while to come up with creating the whole team on the one card, but I think this works quite well. The goals at either end and then all the players on the court, even with the centre circle! The team colours are a Gold and Burgundy, so the closest colours were Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry. I used Balmy Blue for the background, even thought most of the season I could have used Basic Gray or Smoky Slate (being the winter competition)!!!!

Thanks Netball Coach card using Stampin Up Punch Art by Kate Morgan Australia.

The net is made by stamping the image from the Sea of Textures stamp set and then die cut with the Pretty Pines, small pine cone thinit and trimmed. The players are all punch art using the Cookie Cutter punch, Fox Builder punch and the retired Owl builder punch. The centre circle was 2 circle punches; cut the smaller one, then line up the bigger one over where the smaller one was punched!

The bibs with the positions are stamped using the new Make a Difference stamp set!

Varied Vases Bundle is a favourite!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Varied Vases bundle but this time with the gorgeous Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and the new Pearlized Doilies.

Varied Vases Stampin Up Basket Weave TIEF by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

On the vases after I had stamped them and cut them out, I added some fine tip glue to them for that added shine to look wet like water! I added them to the card with dimensionals. The tulips are also popped up with mini dimensionals. With the stamp set being photopolymer, it is very easy to line up the solid image to colour the flowers!

I’m pleased the lace trim has also been included again in this catalogue.

Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

Varied Vases & Stamparatus 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Varied Vases punch lining up by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!

The vase was stamped off once with the Blueberry Bushel ink to get that lighter look!

Meerkat birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I just have to share with you a card that my 10 year old daughter made for her friend’s birthday on Wednesday. Our initial conversation was that her friend loves Meerkats and my instant reaction was, how the heck do we do that???! Anyway, this is what she created all by herself and I am so proud of her!

Isn’t it amazing??! I love it!

And my heart almost melted when I read inside the card ♥

Thoughtful Branches, Hedgehog

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card I saw on Pinterest but I’ve changed it up to use products that I have. It’s using the Thoughtful Branches dies along with a few others that you will be able to identify!

So here is my cute little hedgehog!

Oh my, have you seen this stunning Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder? You have to get it! This is the first time I’ve used it and WOW, doesn’t it give a great effect!!!!

Can you tell that the spikes are created from the tree (less the trunk!) die?

I have used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Black card, along with Soft Sky.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Happy 7th Birthday Nicola!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another project using the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle and the Large Number Framelits. Sorry for the reflection, it has been quite gloomy here in Melbourne and very difficult to photograph!

This card was made for a gorgeous little girls 7th birthday party that we attended on Saturday.

Foxy Friends, Kitty Cat, 7th Birthday, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade

I started by applying some of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to the background of the card and then a grass was added. I cut a strip of cucumber crush card and used the fringe scissors to create this.

I stamped the cat & punched the pieces out with the Fox builder punch. The stump and the mushrooms were stamped and fussy cut.

Can you see the Stampin’ Write Marker lines on the Banner and the 7? How did I draw that line so evenly around them, you ask? Well, when I die cut the images, before I took them out of the die, I traced that line around the inside of the die and did small dots, then I removed the card from the metal dies. Clever hey?!!!!!

I had great fun creating this card for Nicola’s 7th Birthday party on Saturday!

Foxy Friends Shadow Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a Shadow Box with the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle. I had so much fun playing with this bundle that I wanted to incorporate as many of the little animals in one project, but they wouldn’t fit on a card so I made a shadow box to display!

Sorry for the reflection, it is quite difficult to photograph without it and it didn’t look the same not in the frame!

Shadow Box, Foxy Friends, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade, 2016

I started with a whisper white background and cut it to size to fit into the 8″ x 8″ frame.

I stamped all the animals, punched them out with the Fox builder punch and some I had to fussy cut. I created an extra head for each one. Once I glued them together, I added the second head piece with a dimensional for that true 3D effect.

Here are each of the animals closer up!

Check out this little kitty cat with the bell tied around its neck, super cute!
