Dear Crafters,

The Art with Heart Team ladies are selecting their favourite colour combinations to share with you tonight. Choosing the right colour scheme can be essential to your design and with Stampin’ Up!s stunning collection, there are 50 colours to choose from. There’s sure to be some combinations that work really well together and you can take inspiration from.

Now sit back and enjoy some time out of your day to cruise through our blog hop and soak up some colour explosion eye candy!

Blog Hop July 2017 - Favourite Colour Combination.jpg

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You may have come to me from my lovely team member, Amie McIlroy.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite colour combinations and I certainly do love these colours together. In fact, any colour with black can be so striking!

I am using the amazing new embossing paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Favourite Colour Combination using Stampin Ups Sweet Cupcake & Embossing Paste by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia for Art with Heart Team Blog Hop.

I mixed a small drop of Berry Burst ink into the paste and mixed it around thoroughly. I placed the die of the icing from the cupcake Framelits onto white cardstock. Holding it carefully, I applied a liberal amount of the paste, swirling it around to create the icing. I then used a thinner layer on the black card using the mask to create the background, hence it looks lighter in colour. Set these aside to dry.

I die cut the circles using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. The sentiment was using the stamps from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, but you may notice that the word “wishes” is not there. I thought it looked a bit silly saying Sweet Birthday Wish and needed to make it plural, so I carefully inked up the “ess” from the “you happiness” stamp, placed a piece of paper over the last “s” so it didn’t stamp on my card to create wishes!

The cupcake wrapper was stamped in Soft Suede (2nd and 3rd layers stamped off once, then twice) before being die cut and added below the icing. Once the icing was dry, I used paper snips to cut around the whole cupcake and added it to the Berry Burst circle with dimensionals.

I love the touch of gold glimmer to die cut the sentiment and the golf metallic thread added behind the circle layers.

At the very end once all of the layers were stuck down, I went back with the palette knife and added a tiny bit more of the white paste across the raised edges of the icing to add some highlighting and a swirl effect. I just want to eat it!!! At least this cupcake is better for the figure, hehe!

Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy

The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-craft-with-kate

The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville-diy-craft-with-kate

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!

cupcake-wish-easel-calendar-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-classes-in-rowville

The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Make a Wish

Dear Crafters,

 

Who doesn’t love cupcakes? I know my family love them and what better way to say happy birthday, than with a cupcake!

So today I have a bright and cheery cupcake card using Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White.

cupcake-wish-card-using-stampin-up-sweet-cupcake-confetti-2016-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-diy-classes-in-rowville

The ‘wish’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits, but here’s a tip for you…

See the background card stock, emboss it first and then die cut the centre to save on card stock (see below). You will then cover it up with the Peekaboo Peach layer!!!! Adhere this to  the front of an A5 card.

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect!

Birthday, feminine, Stampin' Up!

Sweet Cupcake

Dear Crafters,

Yesterday was my birthday and I also share it with my daughter’s friend, Mia who turned 10! I won’t tell you how old I am, but let’s just say and few more years than that but I only feel 21! lol

Anyway, here is the card I made for Mia. I mean, what little lady doesn’t love sweet pink cupcakes right?!

Cards by Kate, Sweet Cupcake, Pink Frosting, DIY #stampinup, @cardsbykatemorgan

I love the stars embossing on the background and the Curvy Corner Trio punch. The coordinating ruched ribbon is stunning to use also. They don’t call it Sweet Sugarplum for no reason and it certainly looks amazing in this cupcake!!!

Check out the frosting too, it has Wink of Stella added to make it even more delectable. YUM!

And the sentiment says it all really. It looks so good I could eat this cupcake now!
