Colour Creations: Cherry Cobbler

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cherry Cobbler!!!

I am using this colour combination with the Cake Soiree stamp set and coordinating dies.

I Gold Embossed the cake and the edges of the Gorgeous Grape layer.

The sentiment on top of the cake is also embossed, but with White Embossing Powder. The photo doesn’t do the cake justice, because the gold embossing looks very dull, when in fact it is quite shiny. I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers in the 3 coordinating colours and the white pencil to add some highlight. The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in full colour and stamped off once for the lighter shade.

Colour Creations: Diorama card featuring Calypso Coral and Sea of Textures

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Calypso Coral!!!

I am using the Sea of Textures bundle to create this Diorama card. Calypso Coral is the perfect colour for the fish, coral and starfish!

I have also used Pool Party for the background and embossed it with the Seaside TIEF. Crushed Curry makes wonderful bright coral and Bermuda Bay, well it’s just a stunning colour for almost anything!

The measurements to make this card, I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 5⅞” x 11¾” and scored at 3½”, 4”, 7½”, 8, 11½”. Burnish all the scorelines, and die cut the circle . Remember, before you adhere the short end to the centre of the card, make sure you do all the decorating first, it makes it much easier. 😉

And here’s the inside of the card. I stamped off the netting image with Crushed Curry for a more subtle background effect on the white card, but stamped it full strength on the Pool Party card behind the circle cutout. The octopus is stamped tone on tone in Calypso Coral. The border around the die cut circle is a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP.

I love the layers of this with the Diorama style card acting like a port hole of a sunken ship.

Colour Creations: Enjoy Life, Call Me Clover

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Call Me Clover!!!

Today’s card was inspired from watching the Tour de France on TV this month. I am totally in awe of how they ride such huge distances; over 3,500 kms in 23 days.  I also love seeing all the gorgeous countryside of France. It reminds me of my trip through some of these same areas, back in 2001!

I have used the Enjoy Life stamp set with some of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper as a layer behind the cyclists. The bike image is stamped in the full colour, then stamped again as a second generation stamping to get the lighter shade and even again a third time. Don’t you think it looks just like a Peloton?!!!

The inside of the card, I have placed a layer of Very Vanilla card, stamped simply with some of the grass in Call Me Clover ink.

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.

Colour Creations: Cajun Craze and Animal Outings

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cajun Craze!!!

You may not have seen a lot of this colour on my projects, as I am not a big fan of the colour, but I think it works well for this lovable big ‘Red Kangaroo’, a true colour of the worlds largest mammal and Australia’s biggest marsupial!

I used the Nature’s Poem DSP and did my own fancy fold that I sure am loving using with the different DSPs. Instructions & measurements can be found here!

Colour Creations: Blueberry Bushel with Bike Ride

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring the new In Colour, Blueberry Bushel!!!

I am getting organised for the end of year when my eldest daughter graduates from her primary years of schooling and one of her closest friends is a boy who I’m sure she will miss next year as they head off to different High Schools. I’ve made this card for him!

Graduation card using Stampin Up 2018 Bike Ride, Best Route DSP by Kate Morgan Australia F

Oh how I love this Designer Series Paper, Best Route. It is the perfect choice to go with this Bike Ride stamp set. This young man loves his bike; I guess it gives them their independence at this age. The two of them often head out for a bike ride on the weekends, so I thought it was appropriate to use a bike for this card as they will head off in different directions next year.

The bike is stamped and die cut and the wheels are attached with small split pins so they actually spin! The bike frame is mounted to the card with dimensionals to allow the wheels to move.

The inside of the card I stamped this cute little dog, as the recipient has recently acquired a new puppy and I think he will love this touch!

Colour Creations: Around the Corner with Blackberry Bliss

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. This week we are featuring a returning colour, Blackberry Bliss!!!

How pretty are these Delicate Lace Edgelits dies?!!! I have die cut them in Blackberry Bliss card stock and glued them to the front of the Balmy Blue card. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner, Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia..JPG

The Animal Outings bundle is so Australian with its choice of animals, but today I’m using the cute little rhino. Those lace edgelits remind me of the skin of the rhino so I felt it appropriate to stamp it and cut it with the coordinating Animal Friends thinlits. Loving that there are coordinating thinlits for this stamp set.

Animal Outings, Around the Corner &amp; Delicate Lace Edgelits, Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.

I coloured the rhino and the little bird with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then added it with an action/wobble accessory… it’s like a spring and it makes him move. These are very easy to make by punching 2 small circles of card stock and wrapping some thin craft wire around a pen/marker 3 or 4 times. Remove the wire from the pen, cut the wire from the roll and using some tape, add each end of your coil to a circle. Place the action wobble behind your rhino with some glue and add it to your card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too. Here is have used the sentiments from Around the Corner, perfect detail for a birthday card.

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018..JPG

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

Animal Outings welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

Animal Outings Rhino die_2018.jpg

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

Annual Catalogue Stampin Up 2018 Pg48.JPG

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.
