Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Basic Gray

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today is the second hop, as I missed the first one last week which featured the new colour, Balmy Blue (love it), however this week is Basic Gray and I am featuring both colours to get me started!!!

I am featuring the Best Bunny Bundle; stamp set and coordinating punch. It is fantastic value at just $53 for both items!

Best Bunny Photopolymer Bundle

I stamped the bunny on basic gray card with basic gray ink and punched out the pieces. I added some Wink of Stella to the centre of his ears, nose, tail and belly. His head has a mini dimensional behind for some added height. Behind him is the Tailored Tag Punch in Whisper White with Balmy Blue ink sponged around the edges and added with dimensionals.

Check out that gorgeous polka dot tulle ribbon wrapped around the card and tied in a bow. It is so soft and easy to tie in a bow.

Did you notice the embossed background? This is the brand new Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. It is simply stunning and reminds me of a baby blanket, perfect for this card.

On the inside, I have simply stamped some stars in both coordinating colour inks and sponged the edges.

Really going to miss this little bunny…

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using mainly products that will be retiring on 31 May and will be selling fast over the coming weeks.

Here is one of my favourite colour combinations and two of these will be retiring 😦

I was a bit sad that this cute little bunny stamp set was retiring, but it is one that I will be hanging on to. It is so versatile, it is great for baby cards as well as Easter!

Sweet Little Something Bunny card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.JPG

It may be easier to tell you what product isn’t retiring (not including tools, eg Big Shot): whisper white cardstock, classic label punch and the sahara sand, crumb cake & soft suede inks. That’s all, everything else is only available while stocks last!

I am really going to miss those Lots of Labels dies too, I use them loads 😦

I did use the Stamparatus to stamp the bunny as I made a few of these cards. It’s so much quicker to have the stamps lined up and then you just change the plates each time to stamp. More on that though once the Stamparatus is available on 1 June 🙂

The sponging around the edge of the die cut was done with Pink Pirouette and then a lighter layer of Rose Red just on the edges. Isn’t is pretty?!!!

Colour Inkspiration Challenge with Sweet Little Something

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Little Something stamp set that I created for a colour challenge on a fb page, Colour Inkspiration! I just love this set and I have made a few bunny rabbit cards already and you can see them again here & here!

26195845_10209659186471375_3083422403049567311_n

I stamped the bunny with only one colour, Night of Navy. It is a 3 step stamping process, so the first image is stamped in the full tone, the second image is stamped off once and the third image is stamped off twice! I really love the effect.

Sweet Little Something Bunny, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia.

The Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates the perfect background texture for this fluffy little bunny with his gingham ribbon bow.

You may or may not notice that the Lots of Labels Framelits dies look a little shorter? Well, I wanted it to frame the bunny a bit closer, so once I stamped him, I lined up the framelit in the big shot closer to his head and cut. I then moved the diecut in the same die closer to his feet and ran it though the big shot again just at that end, not all the way through. I then did the same with the Lemon Lime Twist piece behind!

Hip Hip Hooray for this cute little bunny!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Sweet Little Something stamp set again but in blues! You may remember last week I did one in pinks. You can see it again here!

I stamped the bunny with the same colours; Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Crumb Cake stamped off! This is my favourite neutral colour combination for this rabbit.

Sweet Little Something, Scattered Sequins TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia #Occasions2018

The Scattered Sequins Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates the perfect background texture for this fluffy little bunny with his gingham ribbon bow.

You may or may not notice that the Lots of Labels Framelits dies look a little shorter? Well, I wanted it to frame the bunny a bit closer, so once I stamped him, I lined up the framelit in the big shot closer to his head and cut. I then moved the diecut in the same die closer to his feet and ran it though the big shot again just at that end, not all the way through. I then did the same with the Night of Navy matt piece behind!

Sweet Little Something, Scattered Sequins TIEF Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #Occasions2018 Hip Hip Hooray

The sentiment was stamped and cut out but it was the same colour as the background, so I used my sponge dauber and sponged the edges and it makes all the difference, as well as raising it up on dimensionals!

Isn’t it just the cutest?!! You almost want to reach out and touch her!

Foxy, Peekaboo Peach

Dear Crafters,

Today I have challenged myself to make a card using the new In Color, Peekaboo Peach. Now I have to tell you, it was my least favourite of the 2016-2018 in colors, but after completing this card, I think differently of it, lol. It just works so well for the colour of the fox!

I am so happy that this stamp set is carrying over into the new annual catalogue 🙂

I haven’t added a sentiment to this card, because I want to add a “number” when the time comes, to give it to someone with their birthday year!!!!

Thoughtful Branches, Hedgehog

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card I saw on Pinterest but I’ve changed it up to use products that I have. It’s using the Thoughtful Branches dies along with a few others that you will be able to identify!

So here is my cute little hedgehog!

thoughtful-branches-hedgehog-cable-knit-dynamic-tief-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

Oh my, have you seen this stunning Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder? You have to get it! This is the first time I’ve used it and WOW, doesn’t it give a great effect!!!!

Can you tell that the spikes are created from the tree (less the trunk!) die?

thoughtful-branches-hedgehog-cable-knit-dynamic-tief-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I have used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Black card, along with Soft Sky.

I was super happy with the look of this one!

Baby Bear double Z fold

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is a double Z fold card which you will find all over the internet, on Pinterest, YouTube, everywhere!!!

Baby Bear, Double Z fold Card #stampinup Cards by Kate @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY  Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY

They are really quite simple to create once you know how. It’s just a matter of having a card measuring 4-1/8″ x 11-5/8″, scored on the long edge at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″.

Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate, @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY

Then I took a 1″ x 11-5/8″ piece of card and scored it at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″ then added a piece of DSP the same length, but 3/4″ wide. Glue this strip onto the card.

Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate, @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan, DIY

The bear is stamped and fussy cut and added to the 1″ strip with tombo glue. Check out his cute little glimmer bow!

I haven’t added any sentiments to this card as yet, as I don’t have anyone to give it to, but I was thinking of maybe adding a brand new babies name to the front panel. I think that would look very cute!

Just Add “S”

Dear Crafters,

It has been quite a few months since I have entered any challenges, but today I enter the Just Add Ink challenge, “Just Add S” to your project (#318).

So I have chosen to add a Sunburst!

Love Blooms Baby Bear Sunburst Feminine handmade card #stampinup, DIY, @cardsbykate #stampinupaustralia

I love making this style of card, not only does it showcase so many of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! papers, but it can also use up some smaller scraps left over from previous projects.

I also adore this new Baby Bear stamp set. Isn’t it just adorable? I have stamped it with Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, as it is a two-step stamp, although there are 3 parts to it, hence the 3 colours!

Love Blooms Baby Bear Sunburst Feminine handmade card #stampinup, @cardsbykate DIY

I also wanted to show you some cards with the new Affectionately Yours DSP using the same Sunburst technique. They are so bright and cheery. This time the little cat is created using the Foxy Friends bundle (purchase both items together to save $$).

Check out his little bell around his neck…. it actually does make a sound too!!!
