Country Floral with Blends, wow!

Today’s card is super simple, with some dry embossing using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and colouring with Stampin’ Blends Markers. This Country Floral Embossing Folder is part of the 2nd release Sale-a-bration items and can be earned for FREE with any $90 order. You have to see it in real life to believe how awesome it is! You won’t be disappointed.

Highland Heather Card Base: 29.7cm x 10.5cm, scored @ 14.8cm
Lovely Lipstick layer: 13.7cm x 9.5cm
White layer: 13.4cm x 9.1cm

Once you emboss the white layer with the embossing folder through the Big Shot, use the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the raised flowers.

Adhere all the layers together and add the punched pieces. The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set and I sponged the edges of the circle with a sponge dauber in the same Petal Pink ink. This circle is adhered with a dimensional. The bow is added and two pearls coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends marker.

Bargello Technique with Fable Friends & All My Love DSP

Today, my card uses some left over strips from the Bargello Technique from an ATC card swap share I took part in during January with the Art With Heart Team.

How stunning is this colour combination of Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lpstick and White?!!!

Fable Friends Bargello Technique by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019 Occasions.JPG

I stamped the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set in Memento black ink and coloured her using Stampin’ Blends markers. I cut her out with paper snips and popped her up on dimensionals on the layering ovals. I added two little pearls to her coat. Isn’t she the cutest?!!!

The pearls in the top corner were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card. I adore this Lovely Lipstick ribbon which is part of the All My Love Combo pack.

Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Coloured in Images

AWH Blog Hop Colouring.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring stamp sets that you can colour in. We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin Blends Markers or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps. Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially the limited edition colour your season products.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Claire Daly. 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!

My projects tonnight are a sneak peek into the upcoming Holiday catalogue available from 5 September and I’m using the Cauldron Bubble Bundle.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Cauldron Bubble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia
I have used Gorgeous Grape for the card base and a layer of Call Me Clover. I stamped the stars in Gorgeous Grape ink before adding the spider web, die cut in Basic Black card. The little spider trinkets are also part of this suite and add that extra touch! The cat, broomstick and the witch are stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured in with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Call Me Clover, Highland Heather, Basic Black, Ivory and Bronze. Then these were die cut and added to the card with dimensionals.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Cauldron Bubble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018

For my next card, I have used Basic Black as my card base with a layer of Highland Heather, and a strip of the Toil & Trouble DSP. Under this is a piece of the stunning Black Glitter Organza ribbon! It is so sparkly and pretty. I have used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in these images and blended the colour with a Blender Pen.

Colouring In Blog Hop with Stampin Up Cauldron Bubble Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018
Can you see how sparkly the caudron is and the spider web?!!! Well, to create these, I used the new Champagne Glimmer Paint and an AquaPainter to cover a piece of Basic Black card. Once it is dry, you can die cut the cauldron. I stamped the cauldron again in Granny Apple Green and Real Red, coloured them with Watercolour pencils, before fussy cutting the flames and the bubbles and gluing them to the cauldron. The stars are also created in a similar way, with Champagne Glimmer Paint of Black and Gold Shimmer Paint on whisper white card.

I also coloured the hat and used the Granny Apple Green watercolour pencil to create the band across the hat, gluing it on with Tombo Multipurpose glue. Make sure you purchase your Watercolour Pencils Assortment 2 pack now, as they won’t be available after 31st August. They really are awesome for anyone who loves to colour!

Thank You, Petal Palette

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a thank you card using the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP). The stamp set and coordinating dies are carrying over into the new annual catalogue, however, they will be single items and not sold as a bundle, so if you want to save 10%, add it to your order now!

This DSP is not carrying over, so if you want it, get it now! The designs are black and white, but you will see how adding a bit of colour changes everything!

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.JPG

This is coloured using the Stampin’ Blends before gluing it to the centre of the card. I then added two strips of the Rich Razzleberry washi tape to either side and then a thin gold strip of washi tape over the join.

Thank you card using Stampin Up Petal Palette 2018 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink and the two flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink (stamped off once) for a lighter shade. Notice the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon? Yes, that is new and will be available in the annual catalogue. It is so luscious and it was the perfect accent for this card. The 2″ circle punch was used to punch out the sentiment and added with dimensionals.

The Petal Palette Bundle is carrying over as individual items, so I would advise you to get it now as a bundle and save the extra 10%.

I added a couple of small basic pearls to the centre of the flowers in the circle.

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Wow, Petal Passion DSP meets Stampin’ Blends!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card focusing on the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper in the Occasions catalogue. This pack of papers are all black and white and very bold prints. But wait until you see what I have done to them!!! You won’t believe it’s the same pack of paper!

Petal Passion DSP

I started colouring the floral images with the Stampin’ Blends Markers and it looked great, but then I coloured the background of the DSP with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends marker and it just looked amazing!

The shading in the images is part of the DSP, so it makes it even easier to colour and get the shading effect.
