AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is the NEW In Color, Bumblebee!

I have two cards for you and they feature all the New In Colors and the gorgeous Flowers for Every Season Designer Paper.

Bumblebee Cinnamon Cider Whisper White

Bumblebee card using Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season DSP & Well Written dies by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

To create this bow, I cut a length of ribbon (approximately 9″) and tied the bow in the centre so you have two long tails. Glue these tails at the back of the card before adding this entire layer to your card base. I did place a glue dot behind the bow, just to hold it in place.

My next card is a Peek a boo window card!

Peek a Boo Window 14th birthday card using Stampin Up Prized Peony by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

To create the window, simply place your die over the card in your machine, but place the top clear plate only over the section of the die that you want to cut, leaving part of it exposed, then run through your machine. Score a line straight across so the two cut edges meet to create the window opening.

I cut an extra oval from white card to place on the front of the window to stamp on.

I also cut a slightly larger oval to place behind the front layers to stamp on. This is glued down before adhering the top layers. This allows for the card base to be a normal A6 card with a sentiment and for your written message inside.

When the card is open, I have  stamped a message using the Family Party stamp set. It is a wonderful set for personalising your message.

Arrange a Wreath this Christmas

Can you believe it is July already? Where has this year gone?!

Tonight you may not quite be ready for what I am about to share with you, but I have my first Christmas card!

I know it is always a panic towards the end of the year, to be ready for Christmas, as it comes around so fast when we are super busy. I start in July and make one or two cards a week, so by the time 1 December comes, I have a nice little stash of cards to send out in the post.

Anyway here goes!

I  using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty. I have created a square card with a layer of the new In Color, Just Jade textured with the Greenery embossing folder, love it. Then a layer of designer paper from the Flowers for Every Season paper pack.

Christmas card using Arrange a Wreath in Just Jade by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The wreath is die cut in Just Jade and the flowers in Poppy Parade to coordinate with the designer paper. The signage is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Black ink. I attached some Linen Thread so it is hanging from the wreath and added a little bow at the top. These die cut elements are added with dimensionals for that real wreath effect.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blushing Bride

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blushing Bride!

Oh how I love this Arrange a Wreath Bundle 🤍 and especially with this colour combination of Blushing Bride, Magenta Madness and Whisper White.

Blushing Bride Magenta Madness Whisper White

White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, scored at 12.5cm
Blushing Bride Layer: 11.5cm x 11.5cm, embossed with the Greenery Embossing folder

Arrange a Wreath Feminine Handmade Birthday Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The 3 x wreaths are die cut in each of the coloured cardstock. The Magenta Madness and White wreaths are glued together and the Blushing Bride wreath is added on top with mini dimensionals. Add some Wink of Stella to the Blushing Bridge wreath.

Stamp 8 x hearts in Magenta Madness ink and die cut them out. These are added with mini dimensionals and a ribbon bow added with Multipurpose glue.  

The sentiment is stamped onto white card and cut using the Everyday Label Punch and added to the centre with dimensionals. Are you wondering why the punched piece doesn’t look like the punch shape? Well, I needed a smaller shape but I liked the shape of the side of this punch, so when placing the sentiment into the punch, I punched it closer to the top of the sentiment, then turned it around and put it back into the punch from the inside and slid it in until I was happy with the position and punch!!! Tada!!!

Blended Peony on Just Jade

Here I am back again with another card using the Prized Peony bundle and another 60th birthday card!

This time I have stamped the large image and coloured it with Blends Combo Markers; Magenta Madness, Petal Pink and Just Jade.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

Look at that incredible embossed Just Jade layer, using the Greenery Textured Embossing Folder. The Vanilla layer is also embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder for a more subtle look. I love the addition of the lace trim, giving it a lovely feminine touch, to tie in the background layer.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

154056o02  154056o01

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony Magenta Madness by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Colour Combination Prized Peony Magenta

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blackberry Bliss

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blackberry Bliss!

My card tonight was inspired by Jennifer Frost who shared this background technique, although I need lots more practice at it!!!! 😉

It was a fun way of creating a more abstract background to my card.

Colour Creations Showcase - Blackberry Bliss - Dressed to Impress by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I started with some Purple Posy card stock and began swiping the Highland Heather inkpad across the card, top to bottom, mainly around the edges. Then to build up the colour, I went over it with Rich Razzleberry then Blackberry Bliss ink.  It creates such a fun texture and I’m sure it will look different every time.

Then I stamped the parfum and flowers in Memento ink onto Purple Posy card, die cut them out and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella.

The larger leaves are die cut with the new Forever Flourishing dies, but I stamped the floral image across the leaves in coordinating colour to give it some interest. This same floral image has been stamped in the top left and bottom right corners of the background card in Blackberry Bliss ink for a subtle impact.

I stamped the dots in Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set them. I tie in the white, I also added two smaller leaf dies and a white bow. The perfum and roses are popped up on dimensionals.

Just Jade Birthday

Just Jade, one of the 5 new In Colors, is so pretty and I can see that I will be using it lots over the coming months. It is a true green and will go with almost every other colour in the Stampin’ Up! collection. Here is how it compares to the other greens:

Just Jade Comparison

I ordered the new In Color Designer Paper pack and thought I would show you all the different patterns available in the one pack of paper. I have cut 4 strips and adhered them to a layer of white card.

Just Jade

I took a length of ribbon, tied a bow in the centre of it and then wrapped the ends around the card and glued them behind. This layer was then glued to the Just Jade card base, then decorated with the die cut word sentiments, sprig punches and a stamped fussy cut bird. This image is coloured with Blends Markers and popped up on dimensionals.

For my card tonight, I am using the lovely new In Color, Just Jade along with a couple of other colours from the patterned paper I have selected.

Favourite Stampin Up AC 2020-21 products Craft with Kate

I started with a white square card base and layered some Just Jade card & patterned paper before stamping on the white card using the Stamp in the Round (SITR) technique.

The centre circle features can be cut from the centre of the two larger layers before gluing them down to the base card to get the most out of your products. The sentiment can also be stamped on the larger Jade card and fussy cut. This was stamped in Versamark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set before fussy cutting. This circle feature in the centre is popped up on dimensionals and a couple of 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots scatted across the card to finish it off.

Colour Creations Showcase – Bermuda Bay

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is the gorgeous, Bermuda Bay!

I just love this stunning colour and I was very happy with how my card turned out. This Beautiful Moments stamp set is so sweet and I am super happy that it carried over into the new Annual catalogue.

Beautiful Moments watercolour wash background fancy fold pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I did a water colour wash on some Water colour paper with Bermuda Bay ink mixed with some Frost White Shimmer White Paint and applied it with an AquaPainter. After it dried, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the paper down to size and used my sewing machine to add some crazy stitching around the edges as a border. I roughed up the edges with my scissors and then glued it to my card front.

The image is stamped and coloured, also with Shimmer Paint added. Cut out the image and I used my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker around the edges so it blended into the background better. This is popped up on dimensionals.

On the inside I wanted to create a pop up card with the stamped image of the two girls. I coloured them the same way.

This photo shows them a little closer, popped up (especially with the shadow)!

It is very easy to create – simply cut the insert and score it in half. Here is a template:

Pop up Card Template

When you fold this insert in half (valley fold), the two small sections need to pop into the card (mountain fold) to create the small sections. I think you can see it better on this angle. I just measured exactly where these cut lines needed to be and how wide, to sit behind the image of the girls.

Lovely You SIP card

Oh how I love a quick and easy card and this one is just that using Stamps, Ink & Paper (SIP)!

Some simple stamping to create the background and then a punch to create the sentiment.

The Lovely You Bundle is awesome – I love these smaller floral images.

Lovely You Bundle by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I cut my stamps in half between the stem and the bloom so that I can stamp even faster. By spacing the stamps on the blocks you can have two ink pads open and ink the stamps in different colours at the same time!
