Art Gallery and Gilded Leafing for faux scrappy strip technique

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 37 – Pretty Peacock

These projects tonight use the Art Gallery bundle and some of the coordinating products from the suite.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 1

The Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is so pretty and I really wanted to use some but wasn’t sure where to start. I layered it over some of the Fine Art Floral DSP, but this is the reverse side that was less patterned so the gold of the acetate really shines. I cut the acetate to the same size as the DSP.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia sq

The flower is stamped in So Saffron ink and then Versamark for the second layer, heat and stick powder added, melted gently with the heat tool and then the Gilded Leafing added. I have started using a sponge dauber to rub off the excess gold leafing, as I found the oils in my fingers were leaving it a little dull. The leaves are stamped off once in Pretty Peacock so it isn’t so dark. Die cut these images with the coordinating dies. Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Add dimensionals on the back of the stamped images.

Place the square vellum doilies at an angle in the centre of the acetate then stick the flower and leaves on. Turn the acetate layer over and place Tear & Tape only behind where the flower and sentiment are, so it’s not visible from the front. Now place the acetate onto the DSP.

Wrap the ribbon around both layers of DSP & Acetate and tie in a bow. Add glue to the back and adhere it to the card base. Finally add some of the Butterfly Gems to finish it off.

For my next card I have used the Gilded Leafing to simulate the technique many call, scrappy strip. By simply cutting the DSP to size, then placing 4 strips of Tear & Tape at angles down the paper. Take off the backing paper and add the Gilded Leafing. I use a sponge dauber to brush off the excess.

The Double Oval Punch makes it so easy to create a sentiment and matt layer for your cards; one an oval and the other a slightly larger scallop oval in the one punch!

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

The poppy is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Poppy Parade & Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Linen Thread is wrapped around three times the patterned paper layer and tied in a bow, before gluing it to a Basic White Thick cardstock base.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Forever and Always

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is using the Forever & Always Bundle and the coordinating Specialty Paper, Love You Always.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Creations Showcase using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021

I love using black as a background, giving such a dramatic effect with the bright images and layers and the white square scalloped frame, really pops. The Subtle 3D Embossing Folder adds a soft touch of texture.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Showcase 2021 using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan Australia

Inking up a sponge dauber with Magenta Madness, I started in the centre of each flower and swiped the dauber to the outer edge of the petals to get that brushed look. Doesn’t it look amazing?!!!

The centres are sponged with Bumblebee ink and the leaves stamped in Just Jade.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

I stamped some extra flowers and leaves and added them to the inside of the card.

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 35 – Pool Party

This birthday card is so much fun, with the donkey kicking up the pile of presents… I can almost hear it laughing!!!

Darling Donkeys Birthday card for Pool Party Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the Darling Donkeys stamp set (FREE product during Saleabration with $90+ order) and the Kangaroo & Company stamp set, where I have used the presents image. I also stamped this image across the background of my card in Pool Party ink.

The donkey and presents are stamped in Memento ink onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus to line them up perfectly, then die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

The images are coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Real Red. The rhinestones are also coloured with the Pool Party Blends to coordinate with the cardstock. The present at the front, is also stamped with little star type images from the Darling Donkeys set.

Love You, Kangaroo

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 34 – Petal Pink

This is such a pretty, peachy pink tone and I actually quite like it.

So for this card, I first selected one of the sheets from the Subtles 6″x6″ DSP that you can get as part of the joining special at the moment.

I used my snips by opening them up and using one blade to rough up the edges of the patterned paper and fold over the top corner, before gluing it to the Petal Pink card base.

I chose the Kangaroo & Company Bundle next, as I hadn’t inked it up since buying it last year, and it was time to have a play with this cute bundle.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to colour the kangaroo, so I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and dragged the Petal Pink inkpad across it. I watched a Facebook Live recently over @theCraftyCarrotCo where they used this technique. I then stamped the Kangaroo image in Soft Suede ink 3 times, using the Stamparatus to get a nice, deep, rich colour, before die cutting it.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hearts in the pouch are also stamped twice using the Stamparatus in Petal Pink on Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies.

I used Stampin’ Seal+ to add the Square Vellum Doilies, then used Dimensionals behind the kangaroo.

The “love’ and ‘you’ are from the Love You More Than dies, cut in Shimmery White cardstock and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Last, I added three of the Elegant Faceted Gems, then decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. I stamped in Petal Pink first using the Stamparatus, then moved the cardstock slightly, and stamped again in Soft Suede ink, twice. Doesn’t it give a fantastic offset stamping shadow effect?!!! I added a strip on the same patterned paper down the side, that I used on the front of the card.

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 33 – Pear Pizzazz

This is a Diorama fancy fold card that will fold into a C6 envelope, however because of the thickness, it is better in a 16cm² envelope.

The base is Thick White cardstock and the front is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

The Forever Greenery patterned paper is perfect for the feature background with the Champagne Foil butterflies [Butterfly Beauty Thinlits]. The Layering Ovals Framelits were used to cut the window and the frame.

The bubbles [Beauty Abounds] are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and the sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. This was stamped 3 times using the Stamparatus to get that darker tone.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is simply stunning with the addition of the gold gilded leafing – WOW, this stuff is just to die for!!!

The Art Gallery Bundle has this gorgeous two step stamped flower which I have inked in Pool Party and then the second layer is stamped in Versamark. Add Heat and Stick Powder, shake off the excess, then heat it with a Heat Tool. This melts the powder so you can then add some of the Gilded Leafing flakes. I use my finger to rub it around over all the sticky powder. I find this the most effective way of adding it efficiently. A little tip with the Gilded Leafing – do not use when you have a fan on, the windows open if it’s breezy outside or it you are about to sneeze. Ask me how I know, LOL. It is so light, it flies everywhere!!!

Art Gallery Bundle and Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment is from the Many Messages Bundle – a wonderful stamp set (all sentiments on 1 stamp) and the die cuts out each one individually in one pass on the Cut & Emboss Machine! Use your Stamparatus to ink up the stamp for a perfect impression.

Art Gallery Bundle and Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The stem is inked in Just Jade ink to coordinate with the Gingham Ribbon, part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

The gorgeous floral patterned paper is one of the items you can choose for FREE with a $90+ order. This 12″x12″ paper is called Flower & Field, and check out the other patterns in the pack!

Colour Creations Showcase – Pacific Point – Many Messages

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 32 – Pacific Point

The Many Messages stamp set is just that – 19 messages in one stamp!!!

Use the Stamparatus to get the perfect imprint and then cut them all out in one go using the Message Die.

Many Messages Bundle for Pacific Point Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Once you die cut the stamped image, you are left with a negative piece that I keep and place over my card base to use as a template to insert the pieces back onto my card!

Using the die, I also cut some plain white and Pacific Point card, so I had plain die cuts to insert back onto my card. In the next image you can see I placed 3 of the stamped dies first, then placed some of the blue and white ones around it.

Many Messages Bundle by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

I added a few of the sequins from the Whale of a Time Suite with a glue dot for some extra embellishment.

The background was created with four 2cm strips of DSP and one in Pacific Point card.

Week 31 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card is using some of the new Jan-Jun Mini catalogue products, the Forever & Always Bundle!

Old Olive – Rococo Rose – Whisper White

Elegant Love You Always for Old Olive Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

My card base is Rococo Rose with a matt layer of Old Olive. I cut a strip of Love You Always Specialty DSP and the same in the True Love DSP (coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers). These were adhered to the Old Olive layer and some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon attached at the join using Tear & Tape. The ribbon is folded over the edges and behind the Olive layer. Now this is glued to the card base. I tied a ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots.

Colour Creations Showcase – Night of Navy – Masculine Well Suited 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 30 – Night of Navy

This is our first colour for 2021, as we continue with the remainder of the SU colour range!

Tonight’s card is very masculine in appearance with some brand new products from the new Jan-Jun Mini catalogue!

The background patterned paper is the Well Suited DSP and the stamp set is called You are Amazing. This is a brilliant stamp set with awesome sentiments for any birthday card.

Masculine Birthday using Well Suited & You are Amazing stamp set by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Layering Squares Dies were the perfect size to cut out the sentiment and the scalloped matt layer. This is popped up on Black Dimensionals. The 3 smaller squares below the sentiment are the very smallest of the scalloped Layering Squares die, and gluing them to create diamonds.

Masculine Birthday using Well Suited & You are Amazing stamp set by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the images, so I could get that perfect even depth of colour. This image below I inked twice, so the Stamparatus is perfect for this technique.
