Week 45 – Shaded Spruce

Today’s card started off a little shaky to be honest. I find this green a little tricky to create with, but I knew I wanted to use this pretty vellum with the leaf pattern. The Shaded Spruce card base was folded in half then I cut the Scallop edge on the front. I took another piece of card and die cut the edge again a little further in so it created the double scallop edge and adhered it to the card front.

I took a Blending Brush and applied Shaded Spruce ink to the reverse side of the Vellum. I needed to have some white card behind it but it can be tricky when it comes to gluing to the card, without the glue showing through. I managed to do it by adding glue to the right side and placing a thin strip of Gold Foil over the top. I then glued it onto the card front butting it up too the edge of the Scallop Contours die. The left side of the vellum doesn’t have any glue behind it, so I notched the top and bottom with my 1/8″ circle punch (this helps hold the ribbon/twine in place) and wound some gold Simply Elegant Trim around and tied in a bow. A glue dot was placed under the bow to hold it in place.

The Something Fancy dies were used to cut the Regency Park DSP and frame behind the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment (Charming Sentiments) onto Night of Navy card in Versamark Ink, added Gold Emboss Powder and melted it with my Heat Tool. It was die cut using the coordinating dies (Sentiment Silhouettes) and popped up on Mini Dimensionals.

On the inside I placed a strip of the Regency Park Designer Series Paper down the right side and placed a smaller piece of white card with some gold foil.

I find this all really dark and it did not exactly please me, so I went about creating a softer and more subtle, feminine card.

I made a card a couple of weeks ago with a similar effect, but this week I have cut the card to create more of a picket fence look. I am using a couple of the In Colours that are due to retire at the end of May; Fresh Freesia & Polished Pink.

Framed Florets on a picket fence by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023

The Framed Florets Bundle was used to stamp many flowers in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted with the Heat Tool. I water coloured them with Shaded Spruce, Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia inks. I watered down some Shaded Spruce ink and added it to some Thick Basic White paper. Once dry, I die cut some leaves. Some Open Weave Polished Pink Ribbon and White Crinkled Ribbon was cut in half and added between the layers of flowers. The sentiment is embossed in white onto Fresh Freesia card. Some Iridescent Basic Pearls were added for that extra feminine touch!

Sahara Sand: Trifold Birthday card

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 44 – Sahara Sand

Today I have chosen a trifold card, that folds flat to fit into a standard DL envelope. This is a simple ‘fancy fold’ design, and perfect for any occasion.

Starting with an A4 sheet, I cut it down to 27cm x 21cm and scored the long edge at 9cm & 18cm. I marked with a pencil at 7.5cm on the short edge and cut from that mark up to the opposite corner.

Trifold birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 Like an Animal DSP, Happier Than Happy Bundle.

I wanted to use the Like an Animal DSP which has Sahara Sand listed as one of the colours. I used this to decorate the front panel and the inside panel. The centre panel I embossed some Sahara Sand card with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture.

Trifold birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 Like an Animal DSP, Happier Than Happy Bundle

I took some Sweet Sorbet Glimmer Paper and punched 2 balloons. Adding some White Baker’s Twine for the string.

The bear (Happier Than Happy stamp set) was stamped twice using the Stamparatus to get a darker tone before die cutting it with the coordinating Happy Forest dies.

The Stylish Shapes circle die was used to cut some Vellum Basics Specialty Designer Series Paper which the bear is glued to, then some Dimensionals added behind the bear to pop it up a little on the card front.

On the inside centre panel, using the Stamparatus again, I stamped the ‘happy’ 3 times using the hinge stamping technique and then the ‘birthday’ in Sweet Sorbet ink across the centre.

On the inside back panel, another circle of Vellum was cut with the returning 2″ Circle Punch and the fox added on dimensionals with white baker’s twine wrapped around his tail to a smaller balloon. The fox was stamped the same way as the bear, but I also added a little Sweet Sorbet ink with a dauber directly to the stamp for a little extra shading.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using Shaded Spruce.

Dainty Delight Trellis card

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 43 – Rich Razzleberry

Today I have a trellis card and features the beautiful Dainty Delight bundle.

Dainty Delight Trellis card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

Take your card and cut 5 x 1.5cm strips off the bottom of the front panel. Place a large post it note upside down, behind the remaining card front and to the bottom of the card and place the strips back in place. I put an inkpad on the top portion to hold it down.

Trellis card front by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

Now take 2 more strips and where the dots of glue are, adhere the strips to each side. Once dry you can safely remove the post it note and trim the edges overhanding at the bottom of the card.

The images are stamped in Black Memento ink and die cut. The flowers are coloured with the Wink of Stella directly to the ink on the lid of the Rich Razzleberry inkpad for that gorgeous instant sparkle. The leaves are coloured with Mint Macaron ink and a Blender Pen and the die cut foliage is Basic White card and coloured using the Blending Brushes with Mint Macaron ink.  The stamped flowers are added with Mini Dimensionals and the rest with multipurpose glue. A single bow of white bakers twine is added with a rolled up glue dot.

On the inside, I added another stamped & die cut flower image. I’ve left this card without a sentiment, until I know who will be receiving it. It could be used for many different occasions.

Cottage Rose Corner Tuck card

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 42 – Real Red

Today’s Corner Tuck card uses the Cottage Rose Bundle with the Regency Park DSP & Gingham Cottage DSP (retired). Although there isn’t any Real Red in the Regency Park DSP, it is Sweet Sorbet, but it looks like Real Red to me!

The top right corner is some DSP cut into a triangle and glued along the top and right edges only. When the feature panel closes, pop it under this triangle to keep it closed. Isn’t that nifty?!!!

Cottage Rose Feminine fancy fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

I stamped and die cut the Cottage Rose image and coloured it using my Wink of Stella with ink from the ink pads (Real Red, Shaded Spruce & Mango Melody). This is like water colouring, but with extra sparkle! This is added to the feature panel with Dimensionals.

You can see the Wink of Stella in this image – it is so sparkly!

Cottage Rose Feminine fun fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

On the inside, I added a simple sentiment and a die cut flower.

Pumpkin Pie’s Greatest Journey

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 41 – Pumpkin Pie

Today I’m using the Greatest Journey Bundle with the coordinating Enjoy the Journey 12″ x 12″ DSP. I started with a Thick White card base and took a piece of the DSP, placed it in my Trimmer on different angles and cut, placing them on the side of the card. Once I was happy with the layout, I added Mini Dimensionals to each one and adhered them to the card.

Greatest Journey masculine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023

The clouds were die cut from So Saffron card and using a sponge Dauber, I added Pumpkin Pie ink around the edges. The Soft Succulent oval was sitting on my desk from a previous project (Framed Florets dies). I stamped the trees in the same colour ink and then die cut the Evening Evergreen section and trimmed off the excess around the oval. A Basic Black silhouette was die cut and glued to the side. The oval has Dimensionals behind the left side and glue on the right side. The top cloud is glued to the card and the other two are added with Mini Dimensionals. I stamped the stars, added the moon and stamped the simple sentiment from the Thanks a Bunch stamp set (Level 1 SAB item).

On the inside I have cut a strip of the DSP and cut it on angles to space them apart slightly, like I did on the front.

Week 40 – Poppy Parade

Today I’ve created a masculine card using the Legendary Ride Bundle and the Ready to Ride Specialty DSP.

This specialty designer paper has a gorgeous shine. Look at the black and silver squares of the background paper, the black squares are super shiny. I then layered some of the Soft Suede pattern across the centre.

Legendary Ride masculine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023

The bike is stamped in Black Memento ink onto Basic White card and die cut. The features on top are die cut pieces in Poppy Parade card and Silver Foil. Who doesn’t love a shiny chrome bike?! The flame is stamped in Poppy Parade and the smaller flame die cut from the same colour card. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set, before die cutting with the Stitched Rectangle die. The bike is popped up on dimensionals.

Fancy Two-tone Flora card

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 39 – Pool Party

Today’s card shows off the large background die that is part of the Two-tone Flora Bundle. I die cut if from a piece of Fancy Flora DSP which also coordinates as part of this suite of products. I did add Adhesive Sheet to the back of the DSP before die cutting, so I could easily add it to my Night of Navy card base.

Two Tone Flora and Fancy Flora DSP card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

Because the background is so busy (a good busy!!) I added some Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty DSP, die cut with the square from the Stylish Shapes dies and added with Dimensionals. With the lovely shine, it also draws the eyes to the focal flowers stamped in Pool Party and Night of Navy inks. The leaves are stamped off once and then onto white card with the Navy ink and the others are stamped in Versamark on Navy card and White Emboss Powder added & set with my Heat Tool. Some of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim was pulled apart to have those curly pieces for a little extra texture.

On the inside, a white insert with some navy card and the DSP from the front of the card. I haven’t added any sentiments to my card, as it could be used for many occasions. I’ll add that when I know who will be receiving this card!

Week 37 – Petal Pink

This fancy Fold design is very easy to create with a few scorelines and two cut lines to create the card base (template at the end of the post).

The belly band holds the card closed and the Something Fancy dies have these 2 nesting dies which were perfect to layer for the front of my card, with the Share a Milkshake stamp set and coordinating dies. The Gingham Cottage DSP is so pretty to decorate the panels and the Country Floral Lane DSP on the belly band and inside the card.

The spoon and the bowl are die cut from Silver Foil, perfect for serving this sweet treat.

When the Belly Band slides off, you get a beautiful surprise inside. It opens right up and the centre pops forward. The thinner central panels at the top and bottom can either fold backwards…

or forward like this (which I prefer) but I guess the recipient can decide 😉

Dainty Flowers Cascading Gatefold Card

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 36 – Pear Pizzazz

Today I have a really fun fancy fold card for you; the Cascading Gatefold card!

The Dainty Flowers DSP is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) reward, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order during SAB (5 Jan- 28 Feb ’23). I have also used the Framed Florets Bundle, so if you purchase this bundle, you can get the papers for free. Believe me, you are going to want these frame dies!!!

Slide the belly band off the card to reveal this cascading feature. The Pear Pizzazz embossed pieces are the Fern 3D textured impressions embossing folder.

You can pull the cascading section forward to sit nicely to display.

Are you wondering where to write your message? Well, on the back there’s plenty of room when you use a White card base!

Cascading Gatefold card Dainty Flowers DSP SAB 2023 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia back

Handy Tip – if you want to heat emboss in a colour that you don’t have the powder for, use the Stamparatus to firstly ink the stamp in Versamark then the ink pad colour of choice, then add Clear Emboss Powder and melt it with your Heat Tool. This also helps when colouring with Blends Combo (alcohol) markers and prevents bleeding!

The sentiment on the front was stamped three times using the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour. Using Blending Brushes to add ink to the feature oval on the front of the card gives a softer touch.

The Thanks a Bunch stamp set is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) item, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order.

This card idea was case’d from a card by Mikaela Titheridge (UK). I just loved her design and thinking outside the box and turning those carrots upside down to create trees! Here in Melbourne, we sort of missed our Spring season, as it was very wet and cooler than normal. We now have Summer arrive with some crazy heatwaves.

Thanks a Bunch alternate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023.

I took a piece of Thick Basic White card and die cut it using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I did my Balmy Blue watercolour wash for the sky and and stamped the grass in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. The flowers are Poppy Parade. The trees are stamped in Shaded Spruce and the trunks are Soft Suede, using the tip of the smaller carrot stamp! I took two smaller dies and placed them over the image and added a little washi tape to the smaller one to hold it in place. Carefully remove the larger one and run the card through your die cutting machine.

With that slightly larger die, cut a Pear Pizzazz layer. I adhered the centre piece to the Pear Pizzazz layer and then both onto the main stamped panel, before adhering it to a Shaded Spruce card base. On the inside and the envelope, I stamped some grass, flowers and a couple of the smaller carrots for trees! The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut with Snips and added with Mini Dimensionals. I coloured some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Poppy Parade Blends Marker and added them amongst the flowers. Do you see them?
