Week 32 – Night of Navy

Today, I have some very simple masculine cards for you to show how you can create three card bases from three pieces of different DSPs. I’m using the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper with a Night of Navy card base and Basic White matt layer (5mm smaller than the card base).

IMG_8737

Take three different patterns of paper and cut down to 12.5cm x 9.5cm.  Place all 3 pieces together in your Trimmer at an angle. There are no right or wrong measurements here. Just as long as you cut twice holding the patterned papers together. Once they are cut you can place them down ensuring one piece of each pattern is on each card. Glue them to your white layer.

I am sharing a sneak peek of some new alphabet dies, Alphabet A La Mode, that are coming in the New Year and they are a must have item!

Craft with Kate Morgan tip for using Alphabet dies, Stampin Up Australia 2023I placed some Adhesive Sheet behind some Navy and White card scraps to allow the die cuts to become stickers without the mess of using glue. Using the H, B, 2 & U dies, place them in a row together – grab some washi tape to hold them in place. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s easier this way when cutting 3 times!

Peel the backings off the dies to reveal the sticky side and place them onto your cards.

IMG_8739

Finally I added some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. There were 3 colours, so I grouped them on each card. I think these are more masculine than many of the other embellishments.

On the inside, I placed a Basic White piece of card with a strip of the DSP across the bottom.

Here they are side by side

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 31 – Mossy Meadow

The front of this card has a simple layout of Polished Pink Matt behind the Awash in Beauty DSP. These two layers are glued together, run them through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn 3D Textured embossing Folder, before gluing to the Mossy Meadow card base. The sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added before being Heat set and cut out with the coordinating dies. The Black Mini Dimensionals are added and a Sweet Sorbet Ribbon Bow placed behind it. Silver Festive Pearls added last to tie in with the Silver embossing!

Framed & Festive Christmas Shaker Card

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoThe Heart of Christmas Blog Hop has been brought to you by the Art With Heart team each Monday for 22 weeks when we started in July. Tonight is our final Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2022 and it’s a little sad it’s over. I hope you have enjoyed all the magnificent projects and built up your stash of Christmas cards too!

For our final Christmas blog hop this year, I’ve created a Shaker card!

The Thick Basic White card base with a layer of Storybook Gnome DSP that has been inked around the edges with Night of Navy ink and a Dauber. Doesn’t it give the paper depth and a beautiful edge?!!!

Christmas Shaker card using Stampin Up Storybook Gnomes DSP, Framed Florets dies by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

Next, I die cut 3 of the ovals (Framed Florets dies) in Thick Basic White card. I also used this die to cut the snow hill. I glued the snow hill behind one of the frames and then glued another frame behind it so the hill is wedged between 2 layers. I cut a piece of window sheet using the largest decorative frame and another in Thick Basic White. I only needed the inner pieces from these die cuts. Using my Blending Brushes, I inked the White oval starting with Pool Party, Balmy Blue then Night of Navy inks. To get that snow effect, I placed some Craft White ink refill onto an acrylic block and used my Water Painter to add some water and then tap it across the oval. Put it aside to dry. I used Tear & Tape to glue the window sheet behind the ovals, before adding some Foam Adhesive Strip around the frame. I placed some of the small Effervescent Elements inside the frame before peeling the backing paper off the Foam Adhesive Strips and immediately place the blended coloured oval on top. The shaker element is now secure.

I stamped the ‘Merry Christmas’ in Versamark ink onto Night of Navy card, added White Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool. The Framed and Festive stamp set is used for both sentiments. The trees are cut using the Happy Forest dies and glued to the front of the oval. Wink of Stella was added to the centre tree. Some Starry Sky Baker’s Twine was placed behind the oval which is adhered to the card with Seal+.

On the inside I stamped a Night of Navy sentiment and added some DSP to a white insert.

To finish off, I added some Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels to the centre of the snowflakes.

Pop Up Z Fold Block Card

This Pop Up Z Fold Block card uses the Sending Smiles Bundle with the retired Rings of Love DSP, a Level 1 SAB patterned paper pack from Jan-Feb 2022.

I saw a card by Lisa Curcio, which is where I got this idea and you can see her imperial measurements here. My metric measurements are listed below and mine fits into a C6 envelope!

Pop Up Z Fold Block Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

My card base is Night of Navy with Mint Macaron matt layers and the Rings of Love DSP. The Sending Dies were used for the ‘sending’ die cut which I used Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting, so it acts as a sticker! This is so much easier than getting glue everywhere with such intricate dies. I used a Sponge Dauber to apply some Mint Macaron ink around the Basic White layer to soften the edges before adding the stamp/die cut sentiment. Some Festive Pearls were added to finish it off.

Beautifully Happy Sneak Peek

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 30 – Mint Macaron

Initially I created a fancy fold card for this post, but as I began to type, I realised I had used a retired SAB designer paper, oops. I’ll share that card with you tomorrow!

Today’s card is created using a new stamp set, Beautifully Happy, that I received at our recent demonstrator event, OnStage. This stamp set is a Sale•a•bration item that can be earned free with a qualifying order in Jan/Feb 2023. It is a distinktive stamp, meaning it gives a photo realistic style with lot of depth and dimension without needing two or three step stamping.

A Mint Macaron card base with a layer of Gingham Cottage DSP which has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die through my die cutting Machine. The Framed Florets die is cut in Basic White and Orchid Oasis ink applied with a Blending Brush. A double bow of Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon is added with a Glue Dot.

The floral image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Mint Macaron, Orchid Oasis and Mango Melody inks. I used Paper Snips to fussy cut the image and applied Mini Dimensionals to add it to my card. The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut also and added the same way with Mini Dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the flowers (it doesn’t show in the photos). Some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels are added for some extra sparkle!

On the inside I added a Basic White layer with an offcut of the Stitched Greenery embossed Gingham Cottage DSP.

Framed & Festive with Framed Florets by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 early release

With a Soft Succulent card base, I added a piece of the DSP that was dry embossed with the Fern 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the berries coloured with my Real Red Blends Marker. I also sponged some Evening Evergreen ink around the edges with a Dauber.

Week 29 – Merry Merlot

Today’s card was inspired by Amy Shihinski (in Canada), but I needed to change it up to suit our Metric measurements here in the South Pacific. If you wish to see Amy’s measurements, there will be a link at the end of this post.

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday on Sunday. He accompanied me to Sydney so I could attend OnStage on Saturday with 500 crafty friends, he spent the day wandering around Sydney by himself and had a wonderful time. Not sure why he wouldn’t attend OnStage with me, LOL!

Anyway, I carefully carried this card all the way to Sydney in my luggage to surprise him on Sunday morning.

I have used the Brewed for You Bundle and the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Brushed Metallic Foil.

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 front.

The stamping is all done in Black Memento, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot inks and die cut using the coordinating Brewed dies. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint was added to the beer glasses and heated with the Heat Tool to activate.

Here is the real wow of this card when you open it!

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

You may notice that the sentiments and the beer glass look a little different on the inside, as they were not going to fit on the card. Never fear, I just adapted. The glass wasn’t going to fit as it was too tall, so I cut the top off down to the beer level and added the froth! The sentiments across the centre panels, I had to carefully ink up individual words, covering the ones I didn’t want, covered with some washi tape (remember to remove the tape before stamping onto the card though!).

Here are my measurements (metric):
Merry Merlot A5 card base: 14.8cm x 21cm, scored in half @ 10.5cm
Basic White Card insert: 20cm x 14cm (see image below)
Merry Merlot Matt layers: 4.5cm x 4.5cm (8), 2cm x 3.5cm (4), 4.5cm x 3.5cm (2)
Lights Aglow SDSP layers: 4cm x 4cm (4)
Gold Foil layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 1.5cm x 3cm (4)
Basic White layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 4cm x 3cm (2)

Cottage Wreaths with scored backgrounds

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoWow, I’m back from Sydney where I attended the in-person OnStage event for demonstrators. It was awesome to catch up with everyone after a 3 year hiatus thanks to Covid, and we got to play with new product and receive a copy of the Jan-Jun Mini 2023. More about this event later, as tonight we focus on our 20th week of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team.

These cards are very simple in their design, using the Cottage Wreaths Bundle, but the background scoring is slightly different on each card. The Simply Scored is a fantastic addition to any craft room. Have you ever played with different scoring patterns?

Cottage Wreaths with scored diamond background Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2022

This first one is a cross hatch design. The card base and scored layer are Thick Basic White card with a layer of Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock.

Cottage Wreaths with scored diamond background Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2022 close up

The inside of my card is quite simple with a single layer wreath with a gold foil strip across the centre and a small sentiment in the centre.

The Soft Succulent and Gold Foil Wreath with some Red Festive Pearls for the berries. A Red Glimmer bow is added, because every wreath needs a bow, right?!

Cottage Wreaths with scored diamond background Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2022 side

This wreath card uses the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July-December Mini catalogue. I have stamped the smaller images in a wreath using the Stamparatus and the stamp in the round (SITR) technique. Once the wreath was stamped, the Layering Circles dies cut it out.

Cottage Wreaths with scored diamond Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

How did I create the background? I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and on the back, I drew two lines, horizontally and vertically (centred). Place it in the Simply Scored and score the lines from one centre point to the next. Then I added another 3 scorelines at 1/8″ intervals on each side (towards the corners). When complete, turn it over and adhere to the Evening Evergreen card base.

Cottage Wreaths with scored diamond Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022.

The Layering Circles dies were used to cut the Very Vanilla circles and the scallop circles in Soft Succulent card to coordinate with the stamped fronds in the same colour ink. The holly and sentiment are Evening Evergreen ink and the berries are Poppy Parade ink. The big red bow is cut from Red Glitter paper and some of the Red & Green Festive Pearls were added. The berries also have some Wink of Stella on them for a little extra shine!

Week 28 – Melon Mambo

The excitement is really growing now, as I am heading to Sydney on Friday to see all my SU friends at our OnStage event for demonstrators. This is the first time for 3 years (thanks Covid) that we will be able to be there in person, yippee. There’s nothing like getting together in a huge room with 500 fellow crafters – can you imagine the hype?!!!

Anyway, more about that next week, but for now we need to focus our minds on Melon Mambo.

The Sending Smiles Bundle is a beauty. The flowers are stamped with the aid of the Stamparatus, in Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry inks. The leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. Using a Sponge Dauber to add the Rich Razzleberry ink to the edges of the flowers as the final step, gives it a lovely tone. The same was done with the leaves and the Evening Evergreen ink.

Sending Thanks card for Melon Mambo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2022

The white stamped layer is die cut using the Deckled Rectangle dies. This is adhered to a Gold Brushed Metallic Stitched Rectangle die and this glued onto a Melon Mambo layer on the dramatic, Basic Black card base.

The ‘thanks’ is die cut in Basic Black card and Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock. Before die cutting the Gold, I remembered to add Adhesive Sheet so it can be adhered like a sticker to the black layer. This is glued to the card. Some Glossy Dots Assortment were added at the end.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Merry Merlot.

This Gatefold card has the most beautiful Christmas Tree as the main feature.

This is a larger card and will need a bigger envelope, but I think I will just leave it on top of a present, under the ribbon bow. Why would I want to enclose it in an envelope, right?!!!
