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.

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.

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!

Watercolour Orchids

Hello Friends,

Today I share another card using the amazing, Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, and by purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

This card, I did something a bit backwards…. I die cut all the pieces first before colouring or stamping! Yes, I know it sounds a little weird but you will see why in a minute.

Watercolour Climbing Orchid card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia

I love the softness of the watercolouring of these flowers. I used an Aquapainter to apply ink to each of the petals allowing each colour to dry before adding the next.  The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The centre is a little dark so I added some Wink of Stella to glimmer it up!

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, but I think “hello” can be used for so many occasions, I went with that!

What do you think of this watercolour look? Will you give it a try???

A full list of product can be found at the end of this post!

I stamped the flamingo in Flirty Flamingo and Berry Blast ink, however I think I need to go a bit lighter in my colours next time. But hey, it still gives some great effect of maybe a flamingo in the evening! lol

Awesomely Artistic with a bee!

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am mixing up a couple of stamp sets; Dragonfly Dreams, Awesomely Artistic along with the Window Box thinlits dies.

Awesomely Artistic, Dragonfly Dreams, Window Box thinlits by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up demonstrator Melbourne #Occasions2017 Saleabration2017

The white card is sponged along the edges with Crushed Curry ink to soften them.

Next I stamped the flower image with Smoky Slate ink and used my AquaPainter with inks to colour the flowers and leaves.

A small strip of glimmer paper was then added. The vellum is die cut with the Window Box Framelits die and attached to a circle of crushed curry cut with the 2″ circle punch. I embossed it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also added some gold metallic thread behind the circle before adhering to the vellum with Fast Fuse to hold it all in place firmly. The little bee was added last!

I decorated the inside of the card with some of the embossed card and two more little bumble bees!

Birthday Blooms

Dear Crafters,

What a stunning flower this is and with the image embossed in white embossing powder on water colour paper and then coloured with the Aqua painter and inks, it is such a stunning bloom!

I have used Blushing Bride & Mint Macaron with a touch of Delightful Dijon in the centre to colour the bloom.

The sentiment is gold embossed and some blushing bride sequins & cotton ribbon added.

The card base is Watermelon Wonder.

Farewell, Holiday Catalogue, Watercolour

The Journey Begins

Dear Crafters,

Well, we come to the end of another year. Personally I am glad it is over, even though it went so fast, but it was not one of my best years with a broken ankle and many deaths in the family. Here’s hoping that 2016 will be much brighter and happier xxx

I love new products and today is no exception. As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, we have early access to brand new products from the Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure which go live on 5th January 2016! Here is a project using the Beautiful Ride stamp set.

Beautiful Ride VW Bug #stampinup

I thought this was a perfect card as our Journey Begins leading into a brand new year of 2016!

I stamped the images onto watercolour paper with Memento black ink and used the Aqua Painter brush and inkpads to colour.

Colours I’ve used are: Marina Mist, Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate and Tangelo Twist.

How cute is the little puppy looking out the window?!!!

Beautiful Ride VW Bug #stampinup

Many years ago, the Volkswagon Beetle was my first ever car and when I saw this stamp set in the catalogue, I knew I just had to have it!

Beautiful Ride VW Bug #stampinup

I would like to end by wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and crafty 2016!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Colouring with Blender Pens

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a pretty card created with the stamp set, You’ve Got This.

You've Got This #stampinup Blender pen flower

I stamped the image on watercolour paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.

I coloured the image using the Blender pens with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink pads. I started by colouring all the petals and then going back over the bottom part of each petal and making it darker! Isn’t it pretty?!!!

You've Got This #stampinup Blender pen flower

I layered the watercolour paper onto a piece of vellum, then Blushing Bride card stock then onto the base card of Pear Pizzazz. I added the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink and 2 candy dots.

Don’t you just love how this coordinates with the envelope by stamping the flower image again?!
