HOC Week 4 – Sneak Peek of Christmas Season

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-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 using some of the products from the Painted Christmas Suite.

Painted Christmas DSP JD21

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

Christmas Season Bundle, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.

Nothing’s Better Than Coffee and Chocolate!

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 8 – Cajun Craze

Well, here we are at Cajun Craze, my least used colour in the range! I really struggle with this colour and to me it would be great tone for Terracotta pots, but of course I do not have any stamp sets of this kind!

My next idea is chocolate or coffee, I mean who doesn’t love either of these?!!!! The Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies were the go, along with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment to be stamped on. I had all these done but nothing in the background. I tried lots of different papers, but nothing seemed to work, then I stumbled across this paper from the In Good Taste papers (on sale this month!) and I think it works beautifully, a bit like a tablecloth.

Check out those fancy chocolates with the gold gilded leafing on them. Yep, very fancy chocolates!

HOC Week 3 – Sneak Peek to the coolest friend ever, Penguins!

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021-22

Each Monday evening until mid-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 share another sneak peek of some new products, the Penguin Place bundle ($54.75AUD). This is a punch bundle and it is adorable. I’m not normally into the cutesy type sets, but this one is cute and can also be used for birthdays with a balloon and bithday sentiments included, so a win-win. In the Sale•a•bration brochure, you can also earn a full pack of 12″ x 12″ Pengiun Playmates DSP that coordinates with this bundle for any order over $90+!

Penguin Place, SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan Australia

The snow hills are stamped in Balmy Blue ink onto the new Snowy White Velvet Sheets ($8.75AUD) and then I used Paper Snips to cut along the edge. The Stitched So Sweetly dies cut out the sentiment. The Penguins were stamped in Black Memento ink using the Stamparatus to ensure I got a nice dark tone by stamping twice. I penguin on the front is fussy cut, but the one on the inside is cut using the Penguin Builder punch! The feet and beak are stamped in Calypso Coral ink and the hat and scarf in Polished Pink ink (fussy cut).

How cute is the inside?!!!

Card 2 – This card predominantly uses the upcoming Sale•a•bration item, Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ DSP, that can be selected for FREE with any $90+ order from 4 August 2021!

The background panels, cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the three cute images are all cut from the DSP! The sentiment is the same one as on the above card, but this time I cut it into three separate sections to glue to each of the three panels.

The Balmy Blue Gems added an extra touch of glimmer and I thought went really well with this colour combination. The White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

CCBH Bumblebee – Pierced Blooms in a natural arc

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 7 – Bumblebee

I really love the layout of this card, its simplicity, but also the natural wood textured paper (In Good Taste DSP – which is on sale this month)!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Thick Basic White card was die cut using the Basic Borders die to create that gorgeous stitched curve. Two pieces of A6 DSP were glued together and placed behind the curve to create the card front. By doubling up the DSP, it not only made it more sturdy, but the inside compliments the front of the card! Just Jade and Magenta Madness are the other two card stocks for the floral images. The sentiment is stamped in Bumblebee on some scrap card and die cut using the die from the Pierced Blooms dies. While the card is still in the die, turn it over and use the stylus from the Simply Scored to run around the inside edge. This gives that gorgeous raised edge around the sentiment!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

To create the splatters, I placed some Bumblebee ink onto an acrylic block and squeezed my Wink of Stella into it, to make it juicy then tapped it against my fingers to get the splatters, of course with an extra glitter effect.

I made some faux resin dots with a hole punch and some fine tip glue.

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

On the inside you can see the same DSP as the front. I also added two small different size strips of card for extra colour and some more Stitched Blooms!

I saw this idea from The Paper Papillon and decided to case it but changed up the colours and papers to make it my own.

HOC Week 2 – Gingerbread and Peppermint Sneak Peek

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-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 sharing some of the products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. These Memories and More Cards & Envelopes make cardmaking easy. Along with the new Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper, you can get some Christmas cards done in no time at all!

Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia mit

These cards are pre-printed with the brown scallop border and splatters!

I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut the DSP layer. I did have to run one end through a second time with the die to remove one scalloped end so it fit perfectly inside the pre-printed scallop rectangle. Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut the images from the patterned Papers and added them with dimensionals to the card. The sentiments and the images stamped on the envelopes are from the new Sweets & Treats stamp set.

Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for bling!

CCBH Blushing Bride – Panel Tower Fold Card & more!

Week 6 – Blushing Bride

Card 1 – I finally opened my pack of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper (on sale this month) and the Gold 6″x6″ Metallic Specialty Paper for this fancy fold card.

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The image I initially stamped in Memento ink in the Stamparatus. I coloured it with Blends Combo Markers (Daffodil Delight & Mint Macaron), however they don’t come in Blushing Bride, so I used the stamp and Blushing Bride Inkpad to colour the main bloom and filled in the missing area with the Wink of Stella while the ink was still damp. Then I placed it back into the Stamparatus in the same position and inked the stamp with Versamark ink and stamped over the top of the Memento outline. Then I added Heat & Stick Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. Next, add some Gilded Flakes and rub around with your finger to remove the excess before die cutting the image. Doesn’t it look gorgeous?!!!

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

The scallop squares are cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. These are rectangular, however once you cut one, I then placed the die partially over the rectangle to cut it down to a square!

The back of the card is where you write your message to the recipient!

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 back

Here is how it fits into the Very Vanilla C6 envelope for posting!

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 envelope

I cased this idea from Samantha Clayton (Mixed Up Craft), but used different products and I altered my measurements so this card would fit into our Very Vanilla C6 envelope!

Basic Instructions
Misty Moonlight card base: 8¼” x 6”, score (landscape) at 1″, 2″, 3″ from each end.
Rotate 90° with edge of card at 1″ mark – cut from first scoreline to third scoreline only. Lift the blade and cut from the next scoreline down to the last scoreline only. Repeat this on the other side.
Blushing Bride cardstock: 4⅛” x ⅞” (2) and 5⅞” x ⅞” (2)
DSP layers: 4″ x ¾” (2) and 5¾” x ¾” (2)
Basic White cardstock for back: 5¾” x 2¼”
The folds can be worked out from the photo images above.

Card 2 – this card also uses similar products to the previous card, with the addition of this gorgeous Stitched Greenery Die used on the Basic Black layer. The patterned paper is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies giving that pretty scallop edge and stitched border. I also used the smaller rectangle die in vellum (behind the flower).

Hand-Penned Bundle for Blushing Bride CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

The banner is actually made of cardstock – I cut  2cm strip and folded it in half lengthwise and glued it, so I had the same design on both sides. Then I folded it in a ‘z’ and cut the ends as banners with my paper snips. The main floral image and the sentiment are stamped with Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and gently heat set this with the Heat Tool so the powder just melts, then add Gilded Leafing. Using a sponge dauber, gently rub in small circular motions to remove the excess gilding.

Using the Penned Flower dies to cut it out, I coloured the image with Water Painters and ink directly from the Soft Succulent, Blushing Bride & Pale Papaya inkpads.

Hand-Penned Bundle with Gilded Leafing for Blushing Bride CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I repeated the process for the main image twice and placed the second one on the inside of the card, after I added some Soft Succulent ink with a Blending Brush.

HOC Week 1 – Evergreen Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Welcome to Week 1 of the 2021 Heart of Christmas Blog Hop!

I had a tough week trying to work out what to create for this first week as I do not have any current Christmas products and I’m still waiting on my order to arrive, eeek. So, back to the drawing board and thinking outside the box, I first went to my Evergreen Forest Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This card is very simple but sometimes this is what we want when creating our Christmas cards, right?!

My card base is Evening Evergreen, with a layer of Soft Succulent and the Soft Sea Foam layer is embossed with the Evergreen Forest TIEF. Glue the top two layers together, wrap around some In Color Ribbon and tie in a bow. This can now be glued to the card base. The sentiment (Many Messages) is stamped in Soft Succulent ink and die cut (Messages die) and added with dimensionals.

Evergreen Christmas card for HOC blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My second card I used the Stitched Triangles dies to create my retro trees. This card also uses the five new 2021-2023 In Colors; the non-traditional Christmas colours to make the faux resin dots for the garland! Again I used a sentiment (Many Messages) stamped in Soft Succulent ink and die cut (Messages die) and added with mini dimensionals. The largest tree is also popped up on dimensionals. The Pansy Petals designer series paper used in this card is on sale this month (find all the details below)!

I haven’t added a sentiment to the inside yet, but did add a couple more stitched triangle trees.

Week 5 – Blackberry Bliss

Today I am using the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to show how it can be used with the Pansy Dies to cut out the images, rather than stamping the pansies.

60th birthday cards using Pansy Petals for Blackberry Bliss CCBH 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

My card base is Blackberry Bliss as is the stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment (Sweet Ice cream stamp set) and fussy cut. Behind this is some Gold Foil embossed with the Stitched Greenery Die and added on the diagonal in the centre of the card. The die cut pansies and leaves are placed over the joins to cover them, some on dimensionals for height. Some In Color Jewels are added and the Playful Alphabet dies were used to cut the ’60’ also in Blackberry Bliss so as not to stand out too much (the recipient wouldn’t like that!). Although I did add some Wink of Stella to them!

The white layer on the inside of the card is also decorated with a strip of card and a gold embossed strip like on the front.

Week 4 – Bermuda Bay

Both my cards today use the same colour combination but using different products!

Colour Combination - Bermuda Bay

Card 1 – This single layer card ins just stamping and a little bling, as you always need a little bling! This card uses the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and the Biggest Wish stamp set for the sentiment.

Hand-Penned Petals & Biggest Wish single layer card #simplestamping by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The images are stamped onto Basic White card layer. Once I finished stamping, I ran the edges of the card along the Night of Navy inkpad for an instant border. Glue this to the card base then finish off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Hand-Penned Petals & Biggest Wish single layer card #simplestamping by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

Card 2 – I had a go at a Stained Glass Window Technique – simply using alcohol markers (Stampin’ Blends) to colour the back of the window sheet that has been stamped on the front with Stazon Black ink with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set! The card base has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die.

Butterfly Brilliance Stained Glass Window Technique for Bermuda Bay CCBH 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

The frame is die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies a few times and gluing them together for some depth. Then using some Foam Adhesive Strips to add space from the Shimmery White card behind.

CCBH Basic Gray – Hand-Penned Petals and Floating Butterflies

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 3 – Basic Gray

Tonight I am using the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle for this card, but I am not using the colours in the Designer Paper that coordinates in the suite. I have created my own colour combination and isn’t it super pretty?!!!

Colour Combination - Basic Gray

Card 1 – My card base, first layer and the die cut pieces are all Basic Gray card. The layer has those stripes across it and I created that by scoring every 2cm on my Trimmer with the scoring blade!

Once I had them done, I used the Basic Gray inkpad and ran it around the edges to get that depth of colour.

Hand-Penned Bundle for Basic Gray CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set) in Basic Gray ink and filled in using the other coloured inkpads. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This is fussy cut with Paper Snips and added to the card with dimensionals.

On the inside, I added another stamped image and die cut the top and bottom with that pretty scallop edge die in the same Penned Flowers Dies. To finish off I added some faux resin dots in coordinating colours that I made using a hole punch and Fine Tip Glue (allow to dry overnight on a Silicone Mat before adding to your card with Multipurpose Glue)!

Card 2 – Many of the products on this card are about to retire and are on sale! If you want to get these items, be quick, because once they are gone, they are gone. The Floating & Fluttering Bundle and this gorgeous Love You Always Specialty DSP are both heavily reduced in price.
