CCBH Balmy Blue – Feminine Hats Off

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 2 – Balmy Blue

The Hats Off stamp set and coordinating dies are fantastic value at only $61. Not only can you create masculine cards for the men and boys in your life, but you can create feminine cards too!

Tonight I have made a feminine version in Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape and Basic White.

Colour Combination - BB GG BW

Stamping the stars directly on the card base in Gorgeous Grape ink creates some interest. The top section is the 6″ x 6″ Subtles DSP in Balmy Blue, that I cut down to A6 size then die cut it with the Basic Borders Dies. Keep the offcut piece for the inside of the card!

The hat is stamped and die cut and then the brim is bent up gently along the scoreline to give that realistic look of a cap. Place dimensionals only behind the hat (not the brim) and add to the card. 

Hats Off Bundle for Balmy Blue CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021

On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday using the images from the Biggest Wish stamp set and added the DSP offcut from the front piece. I die cut a small hat in Balmy Blue to add to the corner.

A fresh new look Blog Hop featuring the New InColors 2021-2023

CCS Logo 2021-22

With the release of the new Annual catalogue, each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration and showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

With a fresh new look and returning to the traditional blog hop style, we hope you join us each Wednesday for some colour inspiration!

Week 1 – All the new In Colors

Tonight we are showcasing all the 5 new In Colors that have been released for the two year period, 2021 – 2023! 

2021-2023 InColors Stampin Up

I have managed to incorporate all of the colours in my card tonight.

My card base is Polished Pink with a layer of Pale Papaya and then a Basic White layer. This is the layer that has that pretty lacy pattern. How did I create it? I took one of the Square Vellum Doilies and the Blending Brushes with Pale Papaya ink and moved it across the white card. Some spots I used a little more ink and faded it out. Once I was happy with the look, I splattered some Wink of Stella across it with some Pale Papaya ink using the Water Painters. Put this aside to dry.

Pansy Patch Pale Papaya card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the new Pale Papaya Blends Combo Markers, I coloured the Vellum Doilie. The pansies are stamped and stamped off in the same colours but to get that varied tone. Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen. All of the new InColors are used on this card. The sentiment is stamped 3 times in Pale Papaya ink using the Stamparatus for perfect placement. I made some faux resin dots to match. A Bumblebee Trinket is added.

The sentiment on the inside is stamped in Polished Pink and another pansy added. The leaf is die cut from the Pansy Petals DSP.

Hats Off for the Biggest Wish

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Wow, we have come to the end of the colours and what a wonderful year it was, with some amazing inspiration from our team!

Week 50 – Soft Suede

Soft Suede is from the Neutrals collection.

Colour Combination - Soft Suede Real Red Crushed Curry Basic White

I randomly stamped the background images (Biggest Wish stamp set) onto a Soft Suede card base in the same colour ink. The cap (Hats Off stamp set) is stamped onto Real Red card in Soft Suede and die cut with the coordinating Hat Builder dies. The patch is Soft Suede card and the lightening bolt is Crushed Curry card.

The patch is added with dimensionals, as is the cap to the card base.

On the inside I stamped with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede ink and added a Real Red Star die cut to carry over the colours from the front!

To finish off the front, I added some Crushed Curry faux resin dots to incorporate a little more interest.

Nothings Better Than a Cocktail!

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 49 – Soft Sea Foam

Soft Sea Foam is from the Subtles collection. Today I have combined it with two of the new InColors for a really beautiful combination.

Soft Sea Foam Soft Succulent Polished Pink Basic White

I have used a Thick Basic White card base, as I find this much easier as a starting point and then I can have a white panel inside to write my message on and stamp any extra smaller images.

Next I cut a piece of Polished Pink card to A6 size and glue it to the front.  The next layer is a Strip of the new 6″ x 6″ InColor DSP in Soft Succulent. I selected this piece as it almost resembles bubbles which went with my theme!

The top layer is Soft Sea Foam which is stamped with the glasses in Soft Succulent ink and the stars in Soft Sea Foam ink. This is adhered with dimensionals.

Nothings Better Than Cocktails card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The sentiments and the glasses are stamped in Black Memento ink onto white card and die cut.

Nothings Better Than Cocktails card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

On the inside, I stamped another cocktail, doesn’t it look delicious?!!!

I was super pleased with how this card turned out. As much as I cased it from a photo in the annual catalogue, I changed up the sentiments and colours. Case-ing (Copy & Share Everything) is a wonderful way to get inspiration for your projects if you don’t have an idea floating around in your head already. The catalogues are a wonderful source for inspiration!

Smoky Slate – Very Versailles

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 47 – Smoky Slate

Smoky Slate is from the Neutrals collection. This is another colour I don’t use a lot of, and I really did struggle as to what stamp set to choose. As I was looking through my stamp sets, Very Versailles was one that hasn’t seen much love. I actually really like it, but for some reason, I cannot do the vintage style that comes naturally to so many. Challenge time!

Craft with Kate Colour Combination

This card is very simple and not a lot to it. I embossed a piece of Rich Razzleberry card with the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder and glued it to a Basic White Thick card base.

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I cut the white panel in my Cut & Emboss Machine.

Very Versaille card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The script image is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and the leaves in Bermuda Bay ink. The sentiment stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a strip of Smoky Slate card. This was glued to the white card with Multipurpose Glue and then I used my Paper Snips to trim the edges so they were overhanging slightly. The panel was then added to the card base with Dimensionals and a little gold Bumblebee Trinket added with a Glue Dot.

Very Versaille card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

On the inside, I stamped the scripty image again in the bottom corner in Smoky Slate ink.

Very Versaille card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

I love the font of this sentiment and it could be used for so many different occasions; Birthdays, Sympathy, etc and it is not overly feminine or masculine – I love this!

Sweet Strawberry Birthday

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 46 – Shaded Spruce

Shaded Spruce is from the Regals collection. It isn’t a colour I use very often, so it was very challenging and it may not look it, but this card took me ages to create. I even had to go to the Colour Coach swatch for inspiration.

Shaded Spruce

I chose the third combination and went for the Sweet Strawberry Bundle that is carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue, yay!

My card base is Shaded Spruce and I randomly stamped a single image onto Gray Granite cardstock in the one colour. Once it was dry, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I sponged the edges with Shaded Spruce ink to soften the edges when on the card base.

Sweet Strawberry pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and fussy cut it. The strawberry was stamped in Melon Mambo ink; the outline was stamped twice using the Stamparatus to get a deeper tone. Cut it out using the Strawberry Builder punch. I wrapped the White Crinkle Seam Binding around the Granite layer and tied in a bow. I placed a Square Vellum Doilie under the ribbon and added the strawberry and sentiment on dimensionals.

Sweet Strawberry pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

On the inside, is the surprise! I had planned to use this apron on the front, but couldn’t get it work, so decided to create a pop up card! I used the All Dressed Up dies to cut the apron out of the In Good Taste DSP. The Melon Mambo trim is cut using the new Basic Borders dies and trimmed down to fit. More of the same ribbon/binding, is added for the straps.

Sweet Strawberry pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021 inside

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the larger leaf placed in the corner.

This is how it looks when attached to the pop up mechanism. Do you think it looks like an apron?

Farewell Purple Posy

With the new Annual catalogue launching on 4th May, we will say farewell to 5 InColors.

2019 - 2021 In Colours

Following on from Monday’s post, I am sharing my love with the Pansy Patch Bundle again. Purple Posy is a brilliant trio with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. You may notice some of the new In Colors too, in Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya!

I was inspired by the pansies that I have growing in pots in my outdoor area. I love the pops of colour these gorgeous, delicate blooms provide.

IMG_4407

My card base is Gorgeous Grape, the layer is Purple Posy and the Layering Circles dies are Highland Heather. The white layer is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Farewell Purple Posy, Pansy Patch by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The large pansy is die cut from the three purples and a Pale Papaya centre. The smaller pansies are stamped in the Pale Papaya using the Stamparatus. The outline is stamped twice to get that lovely darker tone and the centre is stamped off once for a much lighter tone. The leaves are done the same way with Soft Succulent ink.

On the inside a single pansy is stamped and a small strip of Purple Posy card down the left side, with plenty of room to write a birthday message.

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 45 – Seaside Spray

Seaside Spray is from the 2019-2021 In Color collection. It is one of my favourites and I am sure going to miss it when it retires on 3 May.

Pierced Blooms Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Hydrangea Hill DSP is embossed with the Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and glued to a white card base. I die cut a variety of flowers and leaves using the Pierced Blooms dies in Seaside Spray, Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy cardstock. The vellum layer is die cut using the Flowering Vine dies.

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment panel is stamped (Beautiful Friendship stamp set) and die cut. After cutting, turn it over still in the die and run a stylus around the edge to give it that extra embossed edge. Fold some ribbon behind the sentiment and add some dimensionals at either end to adhere it to the card.

To finish, I added some Faux Resin dots, Rhinestone Jewels and Butterfly Gems.

Love You Rococo Rose

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 42 – Rococo Rose

Rococo Rose is another one of the InColors which will sadly retire soon when the new Annual catalogue is released and 5 new InColors will be introduced. I really like this soft blush colour and it works beautifully with the colours I’ve used today.

Pierced Blooms Love You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut many of the flowers with the Pierced Blooms dies in the various colours before working out exactly how I was going to put this card together. Once I had all the pieces, I thought it would look pretty cool in a wreath style, but as they are fairly large blooms, I needed to have a larger Thick Basic White square card (12.5cm²).

The flowers are placed on dimensionals and then I went back and added some foliage underneath.

Pierced Blooms Love You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

The ‘Love You’ is from the Forever & Always Bundle. I stamped them in Rococo Rose on white card and die cut the ‘love’ with the coordinating die and the ‘You’ I just used paper snips.

You can see I added more of those cute Butterfly Gems and some Wink of Stella to the So Saffron die cuts for a little sparkle.

Rich Razzleberry Perennials

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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

Week 41 – Rich Razzleberry

Rich Razzleberry is from the Regals collection and a colour I used to use a lot of, but not so much recently. It was lovely to get it out again and get creative!

Today I went with the Pretty Perennials Bundle. This is my first time using these products and I thought they would look lovely in Rich RazzleberrySeaside SprayMisty Moonlight.

I began randomly stamping the background card in Rich Razzleberry ink for a lovely tone on tone effect. Then I took a 2″ strip of basic white card and used the thick brush from the Water Painters pack and watercoloured the stripes. Once it was dry, I cut it down to 1½” wide and glued it to the card front. The extra strip was glued inside the card!

Pretty Perennials by Kate Morgan, Stmapin Up Australia 2021.

Next, I stamped the flowers in various sizes and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I sat them on the card to see how I was going to place them. Once I was happy, I glued down some of the smaller ones, with the larger ones slightly layered over the top. The only one I popped up on a dimensional, was the large flower above the sentiment. The six leaves were also embossed in the Subtles TIEF and run through the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

The sentiment was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink on Seaside Spray card and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The happy is popped up on dimensionals. I also coloured the Basic Pearls with my Seaside Spray Dark Blends Marker.
