Colour Challenge Blog Hop: Pink!

October-blog-hop-Think Pink.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the colour pink. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative with the various shades of pink that Stampin’ Up! offer in our collection of 53 different colours available.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from my good friend, Sharon Davern. 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 first project I am using the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with heat embossing and watercolouring. With October being Breast Cancer awareness month, this was the perfect stamp set to use!

 I stamped the image multiple times with Versamark ink, applied White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Then I used the AquaPainter to apply water and some ink starting with Lovely Lipstick at the top and Flirty Flamingo at the bottom until they mixed in the centre. Once these dried, I added a wash of Smoky Slate ink over the entire background.

The sentiment is heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. Look at that gorgeous Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around 3 times and tied in a bow with a small piece of Gold mini sequin trim!

I adore this sentiment for the inside of the card.

My second project is very much a girly card, using the stamp set, Flourishing Phrases and lots of “Stella”!

Can you see the Wink of Stella on the flower and leaves? It is also around the edges of the sentiment! Oh yes, I really do love my “Stella”!!! I also added some small pearl jewels for an extra feminine touch.

This is all I have done on the inside of this card, as I’m not sure whether it will be used for a wedding card, special big ‘0’ birthday or something else as yet. When I know, I can add the appropriate sentiment.

Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Bella & Friends

Dear Crafters,

Well I can tell you that I placed my pre-order for brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue product yesterday!!! You can do this too, but only if you are a demonstrator or join today so you can get product earlier. Ask me how!

So here are the new 2017-2019 In Colours. Which one is your favourite?

2017-2019 In Colours by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I have some cute cards that I started last Thursday while I was in hospital having my infusion. It is a couple of hours of down time, so I often take some stamped images and colour them, making good use of my time. Here are the first two I started with from the Pretty Kitty stamp set, which I will show you shortly.

Watercolouring images of Pretty Kitty

I used the Watercolour pencils and the blender pens.

Isn’t this image just the cutest? I love the sentiment ‘You’ve got a friend in me’.

I am also using some of the designer series paper stacks which are retiring and won’t be carrying over into the new catalogue.

Bella &amp; Friends by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia close up

This next one is using Marina Mist and the clouds and sentiments are from the Life Me Up stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. It coordinates so well with this puppy floating away tied to a balloon!

and the last one for today is using some of the new copper trim that is a new product available from 1st June. It can be used like ribbon or it can be opened up to look a bit like a mesh bag or netting. I thought it looked a bit like the puppy had chewed it!!! lol

Bella &amp; Friends by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator, Australia

These cards could be used for any occasion, so I tend to leave off sentiments and add them later if I want them for a specific event.

What do you think about these cute cards?

Birthday Blooms in water colour

Dear Crafters,

I have a different type of card today that can also be used as a gift. It has a card on the top and a little pull out box underneath to place a gift!

I have used the Birthday Blooms stamp set and the water colouring technique. Yes, I know, I have a long way to go with my water colouring, but hey, I had a go!

birthday-blooms-in-water-colour-cards-by-kate-feminine-handmade-card-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan-diy-stampin-up-australia

I also didn’t have any water colour paper, so I used the Shimmery White card stock, so maybe that didn’t help.

The ink colours I have used with my Aqua Painter were: Melon Mambo, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Delightful Dijon, Dapper Denim, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green!

Oh and here is another one I made with the gorgeous Rudolf on the front!

Basket For You

Dear Crafters,

Tell me, who doesn’t love flowers? said no one ever!

Today’s card uses the Hostess Set, Basket For You. I have to admit, I didn’t really look twice at this set until I saw a card by one of my downline, Kimberly, who made a stunning card with this set.

Basket For You, Petal Burst TIEF, #stampinup, DIY,  2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I started by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Petal Burst Textured Impression Embossing folder. Next I stamped the basket image and coloured it with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markers and the basket was watercoloured using the Aquapainter.

I used the oval framelits for the main image (and paper pierced the edge) and deco label framelits to die cut the Peach behind it. These were adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with paper snips!

I even stamped a small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope (which I forgot to put in the photo!) oops.

Basket for You

Dear Crafters,

Is your product list growing as fast as mine with the excitement of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue going live on Wednesday?

Here is a card that was created using one of the Hostess stamp sets, Basket for You.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The image was stamped and die cut with the oval framelits, before water colouring with an Aqua Painter and ink pads in the new 2016-2018 In Colours. The basket is coloured using Sahara Sand and Tip Top Taupe.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The card base is the new Sweet Sugarplum, embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Marina Mist Designer Series paper and a layer of Silver Glimmer paper edged with the Banner Triple punch.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The sentiment was stamped in coordinating ink and seeing as I don’t have the new Bunch of Banners Framelits yet, I had to fussy cut the sentiment! Poor me!!!!

I added the oval and the sentiment with dimensionals.

Rose Wonder Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

This watercolouring technique is very easy and effective. The image is stamped with Veramark ink onto Watercolour paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then using an Aqua painter, coloured with inks.

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

Once dry, I fussy cut the image out and added it to the brick wall background with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I think it is lovely for a sympathy card.

Rose Wonder White Wash

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits!

This is such a gorgeous stamp set and who doesn’t love roses?

So here is my card!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

The technique used to create this card is called the white wash technique. Simply, the image is stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, then a white wash applied to the image with an Aquapainter and then coloured using the Aquapainter and inks. There are many tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest if you would like to have a go!

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, Wink of Stella, #stampinup, 2016 Annual catalogue

Once I coloured the image using rose red ink, I added some Wink of Stella ~ how gorgeous and sparkly does that look?!!!! Oh I love some sparkle!!! lol

I am Robot

Dear Crafters,

Robot Boys will be Boys #stampinup

Today I share a card for the boys using the stamp set, Boys Will Be Boys!

My base is Tip Top Taupe card stock with a layer of Whisper White card stock, then some Go Wild DSP.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad onto Watercolour paper and coloured with an Aquapainter and Inkpad. I rounded only 2 diagonal corners of the watercolour paper and the opposite on the Tip Top Taupe card behind it!

Robot Boys will be Boys #stampinup

I added some Candy Dots and ribbon for detail.

Sprinkles of Life

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you another sneak peek of some new product in the Annual Catalogue which starts 2 June!

This stamp set I use today is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set for this year. Stampin’ Up! donates time and money to support RMHC. To date, we’ve contributed over $1,000,000 to RMHC and their network of local RMHC Chapters. RMHC keeps families together and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home.

Buy the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 from every sale to RMHC.

But the bonus is that there is a coordinating punch!

Who doesn’t love ice-cream, right?!!!  It is certainly a special treat in our house and my kids love this card I am about to share with you today.

This stamp set is photopolymer, so it is completely clear so you can stamp exactly where you want it to be! Love, love, love my photopolymer stamps!!!

Sprinkles of Life

The base card is Pool Party with a layer of Strawberry Slush, then a layer of Watercolour paper. I stamped the ice-cream scoops onto Watercolour paper in the above inks and used my Aqua-painters to water colour the centres.

I used the coordinating Tree Builder Punch to cut them out. This makes cardmaking so easy!

Now, you know when your order of Stampin’ Up! goodies arrives at your door in a Big Brown Box and all that extra brown paper, well….. that brown paper does come in handy some times! Check out the cone – I scrunched up some of that brown paper and then flattened it slightly and put it on some card that has lots of rows of Fast Fuse on it. It sticks really well. Then I stamp the cone image and cut it out!

Sprinkles of Life

I added the ice-cream scoops and the happy birthday banner with dimensionals. The small pole is just a toothpick!

I absolutely love this set and know that you will too, especially once I share some other projects over the next few months as I am sure to make plenty with this set!

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.

Don’t forget that the Retired Product List is still available so click here to shop online 24/7!

I also want to remind you that the end date for the 2014-2015 annual catalogue has changed from 30 June to 2 June! So be prepared for this change and get those orders in before the items run out.
