Is that a bear in there?!

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 20 – Granny Apple Green

Today’s card has a very general, but pretty theme, and could be used for so many different occasions, as there are no sentiments or DSP on it!

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink. Anyway, enough mumbling on, here is my card!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The narrow strip at the bottom of the Granny Apple Green Stitched Greenery layer, is some of the ‘darker’ Silver Foil sheet. The bear was stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the Crumb Cake & Polished Pink Blends Marker Combo Packs, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The Gold Thread wrapped around the card has retired (oops), I was sure it was still available. Anyway, you could use any metallic thread you may have. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the larger flowers for more sparkle.

I finished it off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels that I adore and almost finished my pack. I might have to add some more to my next order!

I love how the piercing in the background and the Pierced Blooms die cut images go together so well. This card was inspired by Nikki Spencer who used different flowers and colour combination, but I loved the layout!

CCBH Coastal Cabana – All For Baby card with Decorative Mask background

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 12 – Coastal Cabana

Tonight’s card is using the All for Baby Bundle, which is a recent addition to my supplies. I don’t actually have a lot of baby style stamp sets, but this one is rather cute with the distinctive stamps that create the shading/tone when you stamp the image – how clever is that?!!

All For Baby CCS Coastal Cabana Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Coastal Cabana card base is covered with the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks, new in the Annual Catalogue. They are a great way to add patterns with the Blending Brushes and inkpads without using DSP. I also used the same technique on the Basic White card cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. Although, this time, I left the card in the die and placed the Mask over the top so that it left the gorgeous, crisp, white scallop border. I wrapped around some White 3/8″ (1cm) Glittered Organdy Ribbon and tied it in a bow, before adding the centre panel on dimensionals. The images are stamped in Fresh Fressia and Soft Suede inks, die cut and added on dimensionals. The pegs are die cut from the new Silver Foil 12×12 Specialty Pack and also added on some cut-down dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped another bodysuit and die cut the little pocket in Coastal Cabana card and added it to the corner with a lovely stamped sentiment.

Sneak Peek of Buffalo Check with Baby Bear & Copper accents

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Crumb Cake!!!

I am using the Baby Bear stamp set with the new Buffalo Check background stamp (available 5 September in the Holiday catalogue). I have only used two colours; Crumb Cake and Copper… can you believe that?!!!

Baby Bear is a photopolymer 3-step stamp and I used it with the Stamparatus to get the darkest colour I could for the 3rd image. The 2nd image is inked a couple of times and the 1st image only once, to get the colour variation. The Buffalo Check background stamp I also did with the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour, reinking about 7 or 8 times!

Baby Bear & Buffalo Check with Copper for Colour Creations Crumb Cake Challenge by Kae Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.JPG

I used the Versamark inkpad and wiped it along the edges of the checked layer and dipped it in copper embossing powder and heat set. I love how it gives a jagged look and not the perfect layer. I added a copper foil layer using the Layering Squares Scallop framelit before adding the baby bear layer with dimensionals. I love the copper trim bow too. Those metallic brass brads you’ll find on page 198 of the Annual catalogue!

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018..JPG

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

Annual Catalogue Stampin Up 2018 Pg48.JPG

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.

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

Best Bunny Baby Boy card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2018.JPG

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.

Best Bunny Baby Boy card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up, Australia 2018

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!

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!
