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

Week 28 – Mint Macaron

I just adore this gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper with it’s shiny accents and I have used it in different ways on this card. A strip matted on some Polished Pink cardstock down the centre then a die cut piece behind the sentiment. Both of these are cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The presents are cut from the patterned paper too!

The word Joy was stamped multiple times and I just eyeballed it. You could probably use the Stamparatus to line them up properly if you wanted to.

Here are a few more designs using this same suite of products; the first few are the same design with various patterned papers from the same pack. Very easy for making multiples of and just add different embellisments.

Week 27 – Merry Merlot

Tonight we are featuring this gorgeous deep tone, which reminds me so much of a rich glass of red wine!!

Poinsettia Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My card base and poinsettia flowers are Merry Merlot with Evening Evergreen leaves (these are die cut with the same die). The twigy pieces are cut from the Snowy White Velvet Sheets and the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Papers. I used the White Chalk Marker to add dots to the petals.

The background layer is Shimmery White cardstock (for extra sparkle), dry embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D TIEF in the Cut & Emboss Machine. Two corners rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.

The Tailor Made Tag dies cut out the sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) and I curled it around a pen before adhering it to the card on dimensionals.

The inside is decorated in a similar way with two corners rounded, a simple sentiment stamped with a poinsettia in the bottom corner.

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening since early July, I have taken part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along for the final time this year and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team. I cannot believe where these last 22 weeks have gone, but I have enjoyed every minute of creating Christmas projects for you.

Do you love gingerbread cookies at Christmas time? I do, and that is exactly what I have added to my card… well, not the real thing, but what looks like the cookies I make and ice with my children every year!!!

Gingerbread Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Gingerbread dies and Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with some Heartwarming Hugs DSP create some cute cards for the festive season. The Kraft paper creates the perfect cookie with some Basic White and Real Red icing on top!

The sentiment (Peaceful Deer stamp set) is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink to coordinate with the card base.

Sneak Peek of 2022 Mini catalogue product, In The Moment!

Week 26 – Melon Mambo

Tonight I have a little sneak peek of a new stamp set available in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, called In the Moment Cling Stamp Set.

In the Moment stamp set for Melon Mambo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers. I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper (the same piece as the scalloped frame), fussy cut it and glued it to the stamped image. This technique is called Paper Piecing. Once this was done, I felt it needed a lovely blue sky, so I used the Blending Brushes with the Pool Party ink and the cloud shape from the Basic Borders dies to create the sky. I continued this to the bottom of the white card, as this lady is on a top balcony of a Gold Coast highrise apartment on holidays, enjoying a 5 o’clock wine (are you with me?!!) I think all this time in lockdown has me yearning for a holiday 😉

This is the inside with more clouds at the top, a sentiment and some scalloped edging at the bottom using the two patterned papers and the Scalloped Countours dies.

Sneak Peek Blessings of Home

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 25 – Mango Melody

Tonight I am sharing a sneak peek of the new Heart & Home Collection; including the Blessings of Home stamp set, Flowers of Home dies, Heart & Home DSP and Classic Matte Dots which will be available in the new January–June 2022 Mini Catalogue available early in the new year. I was very fortunate to attend the OnStage (virtual) event last weekend for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators only. This was one of the Collections that we could preorder last month to use during the event. Mango Melody is not one of the colours in the suite, but I thought it actually worked quite well with this particular patterned paper.

IMG_7050

Mango Melody is a very bright colour and not one I use a lot, but by using it with the watercolour technique, can create a softer tone. This is the only ink colour I used on these petals and Garden Green for the leaves and stem. The outline is stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Watercolour Paper. Some Wink of Stella was added to the centre of each flower.

IMG_7052

On the inside I added a layer of Mango Melody card under the white layer with an offcut of the same DSP from the front.

IMG_7053

The Square Vellum Doilies over the Garden Green die cut centre piece (Scalloped Contours dies) adds a layer for the image to really stand out. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody ink on white card and end ends cut at an angle before popping up on Mini Dimensionals.

Eden’s Garden Collection for Christmas cards

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am featuring the new exclusive early release Eden’s Garden Collection from the upcoming 2022 Mini catalogue but these are available to purchase now! In this collection there is the Eden’s Garden Cling stamp set and Eden dies (can be purchased as a bundle to save more), the Ever Eden Specialty DSP, Garden Gems and Ever Eden Cotton Paper.

Card 1 – starting with a white card base, I added two strips of the Ever Eden Specialty DSP on each side. I cut the darker centre strip to 3″ wide and added Gold Metallic paper strips on both sides, before glueing to the centre of the card.

Eden's Garden Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

Some Eden die cuts were added behind the sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) in Evening Evergreen ink on a Label Me Lovely punched piece of Soft Succulent card. Some Garden Gems compete be card.

Card 2 – An Evening Evergreen card base with a layer of Soft Succlent card, stamped randomly with the leaves from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This was then embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing folder and I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber and same colour ink. I stamped the larger image on Basic White card and die cut (Seasonal Labels dies).

Eden's Garden NOEL Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Three strips of the Ever Eden SDSP were added then the die cut stamped image. A Gold Foil die cut was then added with the Playful Alphabet “NOEL”. I added some Foam Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Evening Evergreen card before diecutting each letter. This makes it easy to remove the backing paper and add to the card!
