Week 21 – Fresh Freesia

Today I have a fun fancy fold design called a Suspended Book Fold card. It looks complicated, but in fact it is fairly easy to create. I am focusing on the Hues of Happiness DSP, with it’s gorgeous purples and floral images.

Fresh Freesia Gorgeous Grape Basic White

and here is my card – look at those layers?!!

There are two hinges attached to the 5″ x 7″ card base and the top book fold panels, giving it the ‘suspended’ name.

The top card layer has a strip of Window Sheet which curves to the front and the focal panel is attached to this. I took a scrap piece of white card, approximately 2½” x 2″ and covered it with the die cut (Happiness Abounds dies) images from the Hues of Happiness papers. A simple sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink onto basic white card and glued to the flowers. I added some Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish!

This card does fold flat, but because it is 5″ x 7″, you will need a larger envelope. You may be wondering where to place your written message, well the back of the card has a large space for that!

Week 17 – Daffodil Delight

At first, I was going to use the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, but I wanted to challenge myself a little more by using the Vintage Bottle Punch with the Effervescent Elements inside the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome.

So here is my card…

Shaker Card using Pansy Patch and Vintge Bottle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

A Daffodil Delight card base with a layer of Basic White and then some patterned paper, from the  Wonderful World Bundle that is one of the Sale•a•bration offerings with a $180+ product order until 31 August or while stocks last!

159918

The Vintage Bottle Punch was used to punch this patterned paper ready to insert the dome. Before gluing any of the layers, I stamped a couple of the stems in Soft Succulent ink onto the white card layer so it looks like they are in the bottle. Next I stamped all the images using the following inks; Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen before die cutting them with the coordinating dies. Once I worked out the placement, I glued the leaves and stems in place and added 3 of the flowers with Dimensionals. Now was the scary part, trying to put those Effervescent Elements into the dome without spilling them 😉 You may notice a slight blue tinge to the dome – I actually coloured the inside of it with the Dark Pool Party Stampin Blends Marker!

Pansy Posy in a Vintage Bottle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is stamped onto one of the Tailor Made Tags dies in Soft Succulent ink and threaded through some Linen Thread. I tied some Soft Succulent Satin Ribbon in a bow and added it to the top of the bottle with two Glue Dots. I finished it off with some Brushed Brass Butterflies.

On the inside I added a white layer with a small strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock to the bottom edge and added another stem and flower.

Sunshine Hippo Splash

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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

Week 16 – Crushed Curry

Crushed Curry is certainly not my favourite yellow colour, as I find it a bit dark and hard to use. I wanted to add some much needed sunshine to our lives, as it’s been very cold and wet Winter here in Melbourne. Using the Rays of Light stamp set with the Stamparatus, I began inking and stamping onto Basic White card a couple of times to get a more even coverage. I felt it was a little too big and so cropped it with one of the Deckled Rectangle dies and another to cut the Crushed Curry matt layer. These are glued together and adhered to the card base (Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes).

Just look how much fun this hippo is having, splashing water everywhere!!!

Sunshine Hippo Splash card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The hippo is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Smoky Slate & Medium Combo. The snorkel and water are die cut from Tahitian Tide cardstock. The sentiment (Charming Sentiments Bundle) is stamped and die cut using the coordinating dies. This is added with Dimensionals, as it the Tub, cut from Distressed Gold Specialty paper. Doesn’t it give a lovely rusty/distressed look?!!

I couldn’t resist adding some bubbles spilling over the side and I did this using the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics White.

Hippos in Love!

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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

Week 13 – Cherry Cobbler

Tonight I have lots of Sale•a•bration items to share in this cute Hippos in Love card. I began with a Cherry Cobbler card base and I added the dots by creating a template with the Dots & Spots die. I lay this over the card front and used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker. The only problem was that it bled through to the inside of the card, oops. You’ll see how I fixed that later. The white layer is cut with the Deckled Rectangle Dies, then I put my Wink of Stella into my Cherry Cobbler inkpad and using the lid, flicked it onto the card. It gives a beautiful shimmer effect. Using the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper, I die cut the poles and string (Tree Lot dies, SAB item #159938) and glued them to the card.

Hippest Hippos Saleabration card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Heart of Christmas 2022

The banner is created using the Alphabest Bundle (Alphabest stamp set and coordinating Best Label Punch) and added each one on a Dimensional.

The Hippest Hippos stamp set (SAB item #159921) are stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the following Blends Combo Markers; Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite and the Colour Lifter. These are die cut using the coordinating Hippo dies (Saleabration item #159928) and added with Dimensionals. The solid hearts are also in this die set and cut from Cherry Cobbler card.

Remember I said how the spots bled through from the front of the card, well I fixed it by creating a pop up and added the 3rd Hippo from the set holding another heart! I almost feel like he should be winking!!!!

Happiness Abounds with Calypso Coral

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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

Week 12 – Calypso Coral

Tonight’s card is using the Happiness Abounds Bundle as the focal point, with the Charming Sentiments Bundle and the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper. I started with a piece of Pretty Prints DSP and cut a 1″ strip off the left side. This was flipped over and both pieces glued onto a scrap piece of white card. I ran this through the Stampin Cut & Emboss machine with the Fern 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a strip of Gold Shimmer Ribbon down the join of the Patterned paper and secured the ends on the back. I punched each corner with the Very Best Trio Punch before gluing it to a Basic Black card base. (Oops, look at those punched corners… they are not identical. Apparently we need to turn one side upside down to punch to get the same result). I must remember that for next time as I didn’t even notice until someone pointed it out to me!

Next, I stamped the flowers and leaves in Memento ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies. These are coloured with Blends Combo Markers; Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron & Petal Pink. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres but unfortunately it is really hard to photograph. The flowers and leaves are added to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue and Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted the powder using the Heat Tool. The coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes dies cut out the sentiment and this was added with a Black Dimensional.

I tied a Gold Ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots and finished off with a few Brushed Brass Butterflies.

On the inside I placed a strip of DSP down the side of the White insert and some leaves.

Week 11 – Cajun Craze

This double Z Fold card is simply a piece of 6″ x 12″ He’s the Man Designer Series Paper scored at 2″, 4″, 8″, 10″. Measure from the bottom up 3″ on each side and cut up to the 4″ scoreline removing the triangle. Repeat this on the opposite side. Glue these triangles to the bottom of the inside.

He's The Man Double Z Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I die cut a circle in black card using the Labels Aglow dies. Adhere this to one side of the opening. Some Linen Thread is added then the “You’re a Classic” is added on dimensionals. On the inside I added some Basic White card with a couple more of the elements from the DSP pack.

I added a piece of Basic Black card (6¼” x 4¼”) to the back for it to be a little more sturdy.

Week 10 – Blushing Bride

Tonight I have a feminine floral card using the Wonderful World DSP (part of the Saleabration Free item with a qualifying order). The Basic White layer is die cut with the Split Textures die and a piece of the DSP placed behind it. Some Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow on the front. This is glued to the Blushing Bride card base. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut the floral arrangement from a piece of the patterned paper and add it with dimensionals.

Week 5 – Tahitian Tide

Tonight we showcase our fifth new 2022-2024 In Colors, Tahitian Tide!

How do you pronounce Miura? [MEE] + [OOR] + [UH]. When I Googled it, I found that in 1985, Japanese astrophysicist Koryo Miura proposed a form of rigid origami, a style of folding paper (or other materials) that allows each section to remain flat—a necessary condition for stiff materials.

I have been fascinated by this fold style for a while and it was time to give it a go!

Miura Fancy Fold Card using Stampin Up In Color Tahitian Tide for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2022 closed

My card base is the Thick Basic White card and decorated with patterned papers from the new 2022-2024 In Color DSP pack and the Tea Boutique DSP pack. The Scalloped Contour dies was used to cut the white layer and then I used the fancy die from the Happiness Abounds Bundle to create that lovely pattern (notice it doesn’t cut everything out – so pretty). The flowers and leaves are stamped and die cut. The flowers are coloured using the Wink of Stella, taking some ink directly from the inkpad, to add some darker colour. The leaves are coloured with the Parakeet Party Light Stampin’ Blends marker. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This was fussy cut with Paper Snips and added on Dimensionals.

This is the card fully open so you can see all the beautiful patterned papers.

Miura Fancy Fold Card using Stampin Up In Color Tahitian Tide for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2022 flat

The feature on the inside is one flower white embossed and the other stamped on white. Both coloured the same way as the front. This sentiment was done using the Stamparatus. I inked only the word ‘birthday’ with Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Place it back in the Stamparatus (ensure you clean the stamp with your Shammy) and ink up the word ‘happy’ with the Tahitian Tide ink and stamp. I actually inked it a second time (benefits of using this amazing tool) to ensure I had enough ink transferred to the card before adding Clear Emboss Powder and heat setting. Fussy cut and glue across the flowers. I love how this looks against the two flowers!

I finished the card by adding some Basic Pearl Jewels!!!

There are quite a few YouTube videos of this fold (search Iced Images or Sam Calcott). I liked how there is a second piece of card added behind so it can stand up to be displayed. I mean who wouldn’t want to display a card like this?!!!!

There is plenty of room on the back of the card to write your message! It fits into a standard envelope for posting, but it may depend on how much dimension you add, if postage may be slightly higher.

Would you give this fancy fold design a go?

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Balmy Blue!

Tonight we showcase our fourth of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Sweet Sorbet!

This colour reminds me a bit of a retired colour, Strawberry Slush (2013-2015 In Color) although this is slightly darker. I have used Sweet Sorbet with Parakeet Party, another new in Color this year. The Bottled Happiness Bundle (Bottled Happiness stamp set and coordinating Vintage Bottle punch) features on my card, along with two designs from the In Color Designer Series Paper 6×6 Pack.

Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut two in Parakeet Party and Basic White card, and stamping the feature images on the white layer. These stamps are photopolymer, so you can stamp the first layer in Sweet Sorbet and easily line up the next leafy image in Parakeet Party and the bottle.

Week 3 – Starry Sky

Tonight we showcase our third of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Starry Sky!

I have created a Masculine card using the Brewed For You Bundle. Starting with a Starry Sky card base, dry embossed with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. A strip of the plaid pattern InColor 6×6 DSP is added to the left. Another dotty piece is die cut with the Dots & Spots die and then layered onto a piece of Very Vanilla card, cut slightly smaller and adhered to the back. Isn’t that a cool effect?!!

Brewed for You card for CCBH Starry Sky using Reverse stamping technique by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The glasses are stamped in Starry Sky and Mango Melody inks. and die cut. The one on the left is a mirror image of the same stamp as the right, using the Reverse stamping/Mirror stamping technique. How did I do that?

I used my Stamparatus and placed the Silicone Mat inside and placed the stamp on the acrylic plate. I inked the stamp and pressed down on the Silicone Mat, repeating this 3 times to get enough ink transferred, then place a piece of Basic White cardstock on top of the Silicone Mat and close the Stamparatus. This will also leave the stamped image so you know where to place the die to cut out the image. Once you run it through the Cut & Emboss machine, turn it over and you will have a perfect reverse stamped image!!! I added Wink of Stella over the Mango Melody ink.

The sentiment is stamped onto Basic White card and cut out using the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies. All the stamped elements are popped up on Dimensionals.

I added some InColor Matte Decorative Dots to finish off the front of the card.

On the inside, I glued a strip of both Designer Papers and stamped another glass, but this time I used the embossed die (Basic White card) for the beer and coloured it with Mango Melody ink using my blending brush. This was die cut and glued to the card.
