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.

Varied Vases with the Stamparatus!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card we made at my recent classes. This was a simple design to show my ladies how to use the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool).

Varied Vases Stampin Up Feminine Card by Kate Morgan, Australia

We inked the floral outlines in Basic Gray, stamping it once, moved the hinged plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat. On another plate we had the shelf inked in Smoky Slate ink. Then on the reverse of the first plate, we inked up the flowers in 3 different colours; Petal Pink, Coastal Cabana & Highland Heather. We punched out some vases in 3 of the new in colours; Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch and added them with dimensionals.

Dear Crafters,

Yay, it’s finally the day I can share with you, the amazing 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue! Click the image to download your PDF copy now!

Look what I’ve done to mine ~ added a few tabs so I can find the section I want quickly and easily to save me time. These are created with the Circle Tab punch and a computer to print the file!

2018-2019 Annual Stampin Up Catalogue tabs.JPG

With all the excitement of the new catalogue, today I want to share some cards with a handy tip on using the new Pearl Doilies.

This card below looks like it uses a doily behind the circle sentiment, doesn’t it?!!

Share What You Love & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Well, it does, but I have actually cut out the centre of it before adding the sentiment to the card, because it would be a waste to actually use the entire doily and cover most of it up, right?

Share What You Love DSP & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out this card! Yes, it is that inside part of the doily above, so we were able to get 2 cards from the one doily!!!

Now, I also promised to share how I made this sentiment with the Make a Difference stamp set and the Stamparatus. Click here for the written tutorial!

Share What You Love SDSP Gift Box with card hanger

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project that I saw Rhonda Wade create on her FB page and I immediately fell in love with it. It uses 2 sheets of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and that gets you the box and the card!

With this Specialty DSP being so thick, it makes this box super sturdy and so big, that you could fit so much into it; a beautiful scarf, clothing, 2 bottles of wine, whatever you really like!

And how cool it is to have that card hanger on the front to hang your coordinating card!

I also used the Make a Difference Stamp set with the Stamparatus for the sentiment and I will show you how that was made in a separate post on Friday!

The inside of the card looks like this! I love both sides of this DSP that you don’t want to hide it by gluing it to the front of a card base, so folding it in half and adding a piece of A6 cardstock to the back as the base, you get to see both sides!

Blog Hop: In Colors

Blog Hop In Colour.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring “in color” theme. Check out the new 2018 – 2020 in colors and lets not forget the current 2017 – 2019 in colors. If you would like a copy of the 2018-2019 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 Rebecca Jacovou. 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 am so excited about the new upcoming in colors, they are just so bright and cheery and I love them all. They are just like a rainbow of colour and that makes me happy, so my first two cards use the 2018-2020 in colors!

This first card I have just cut panels of card and glued them to a piece of Very Vanilla card then glued it to the front of the Lovely Lipstick (my favourite in colour!) card base. A piece of Dotted Ribbon was placed across the centre. The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added with dimensionals.

Sentiment of My Heart In Color Blog Hop 2018 Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

This stamped sentiment is the Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart and it says everything to me and everyone else on this blog hop, what crafting means to us. Isn’t it beautiful??!

This next one is also using these same in colors; Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch. The new Handwritten background stamp was placed in the Stamparatus to get this 3-toned effect. The Stampartus made it so much easier to ink up the sections starting with the lightest to the darkest, lining up the image perfectly. And if you haven’t got the crisp image and miss a little, you can ink it up again and re-stamp!

2018 In Color Blog Hop Handwritten Love What You Do Thank You card Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

The sentiment and flower image are from the Love What You Do stamp set. Can you see the Wink of Stella on those petals? So pretty! I added some gingham ribbon and Faceted Dots.

This next card uses Berry Burst & Powder Pink, 2017-2019 in colors, paired with Whisper White. Again I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment, but stamping it in Powder Pink, then using the Berry Burst Stampin’ Write marker to apply ink to the bottom of the sentiment end re-stamping for that dual tone.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan Australia

I have used the new Abstract Impressions bundle which will be available on 1st June. I was worried when the Butterflies thinlits were retiring, so this bundle was a must have for me!  I really wanted the butterfly to be the feature, so I die cut the image in Berry Burst card and the floral image in Whisper White, the same as the card base.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out the centre of the butterfly. Can you see what I’ve done? It’s like a handmade bead! I cut a 4½” strip of DSP, tapered off at one end. Add some glue and roll it up around a skewer. Leaving the bead on the skewer, I then added some Fine Tip glue over the entire thing to make it shiny (a bit hard to tell in the photo) and let it dry overnight across the top of a bowl before adding it to my butterfly. I glued a little twine in the top for its antennae.

Thanks for visiting today.

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 &amp; 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!

Stamparatus Storage with Monogram Tag

Dear Crafters,

I’m popping in this morning for this brief post, as I’m heading to Sydney this morning for the OnStage event tomorrow at Luna Park!

I won’t be able to share all the excitement until Tuesday when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but I’m certain there will be lots of new product and gorgeous goodies in the upcoming Annual catalogue, a copy of which I will get my hands on tomorrow!

Today I share something I have created for Bev who is going to Sydney with me. We usually make swaps (card fronts) to take to these events to swap with other demonstrator friends, but I completely ran out of time with work being so busy and with Easter on top of that 😦

You may remember I posted earlier in the week with a different form of storage for the Stamparatus to sit on your desk, you can see it here if you missed it, but today I have this idea for travelling with your Stamparatus!

Luckily I managed to get my hands on a couple of these toiletry bags from Kmart which are the perfect size and storage idea to fit our new Stamparatus. I’m guessing there will be many others who rush out and purchase one, and they only come in black, so I needed to find a way to make them our own, and what better way than with a Monogram tag!

Shrink plastic Monogram tag for Stamparatus storage using Stampin Up Large Letters, Bloomin Love by Kate Morgan, Craft with Kate, Australia.JPG

First of all, I die cut the 3rd largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits and cut the shape from Shrink Plastic (or shrinky dinks), then punch a hole at one end. It’s critical you do this before heating and shrinking it! Next, stamp your images. I’ve used Basic Black archival ink for the large letter and Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp the heart from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. Then let the magic begin as you heat it with your heat tool and watch it shrink!

Here’s a closer look.

and here is the toiletry bag open…. it actually could hold 2 Stamparatus if you had them, as an easier way to transport them to Workshops outside of your home!

and once I made Bev’s, I had to make one for myself, of course!  I love butterflies, so I stamped them in Bermuda Bay ink. The small mobile phone lanyards were purchased on eBay.
