CCBH Flirty Flamingo – Triple Point fancy fold card

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 17 – Flirty Flamingo

Tonight I have a Triple Point fancy fold card with the In Symmetry stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry DSP. This looks quite complicated, but in actual fact it wasn’t that hard to create. I wanted my card to fit into my envelopes that I make (see Tutorials page), so I made my card base 10.5cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm. I also used two pieces of DSP 10cm x 10cm.

I made this into a birthday card for my close friend, Angela, hence the sentiment on the front of the card!

When the card is open, there is plenty of space to write your message. I stamped this sentiment using the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

CCBH Crushed Curry – You can Count on Me

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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

Count on Me Rainbow Be Dazzling

Today’s project is so colourful and uses a couple of different colouring techniques. The Be Dazzing Specialty Paper is used and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are alcohol based, so it dries quickly when applied to this paper!

I cut the six strips to 14cm x 1.5cm and then coloured them. I applied them to the card base with Seal+.

The Highland Heather scallop circle element is die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies as is the Gold Heart that the bear is holding. The bear is from the Count on Me stamp set, stamped in Memento ink on Basic White card coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pens, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The ‘happy’ is cut from Highland Heather card with some Foam Adhesive Sheet on the back using the Word Wishes dies.

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!

CCBH Blackberry Bliss – Pansy Petals 60th Birthday

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 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.

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.

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 Balmy Blue – Feminine Hats Off

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! 

Hats Off Bundle for Balmy Blue CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

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.
