Sweet Sorbet Dutch Fold 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 4 – Sweet Sorbet

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.

I was inspired by Jan B (UK demonstrator) and followed her measurements, although I used different products, but I like the way the centre feature sits between the Dutch fold doors to stand up to display.

Brewed for You with Reverse Stamping Technique

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 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.

Faceted Diamond Vertical Easel card for Parakeet Party Blog Hop

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 2 – Parakeet Party

Tonight we showcase our second of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Parakeet Party!
This fancy fold is called a Faceted Diamond Vertical Easel card… try saying that quickly 3 times!!!!
Here is my bright and cheery colour combination for this card, which I gave to my dear mum for Mother’s Day and she loved it! Her favourite colour is green!!

Parakeet Party

This is a card of many angles and yes, it took a little while to create, but it was fun. It just looks like a square card when it is folded flat, measuring 14.5cm x 14.5cm. I have used two designs from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paperv (DSP) in Parakeet Party. Polished Pink cardstock was used to matt the DSP. The leaf is stamped ink Parakeet Party ink and fussy cut with Snips.

and here it is when standing up – the front sits inside the Designer Paper panel on the inside (right) which is raised up on a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet to create the Easel.

The diamond feature is really cool and looks impressive, doesn’t it?! Can you see the strip of Window Sheet across the diamond where the ladybug on her leaf sit? This gives the image a wonderful floating effect when the card is open and lays flat to post.

Orchid Oasis Blog Hop

2022-23 CCBH Logo

We are back with the new 2022-2023 CCBH, but we are going to start our showcase with the FIVE new In Colors first, then continue alphabetically through our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 1 – Orchid Oasis

Today we begin our new Colour Creations Blog Hop and we are starting the first 5 weeks with the new 2022-2024 In Colors. Today features Orchid Oasis!

I have used the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing dies with loads of new Orchid Oasis products.

My card base is Orchid Oasis. The next layer is Basic White with a piece of 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper. These layers are added to the card base on Dimensionals.

Forever Fern in Orchid Oasis for colour creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I stamped some of the Forever Fern images onto basic white card and die cut them. Others are die cut directly from cardstock and the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper (this has an Ombre effect and is stunning). The sentiment (Biggest Wish stamp set) is stamped onto Basic White card and cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies. This is added with Dimensionals. These dies are going to get loads of use, as they have Squares, banners and circle dies. I finished it off with a few of the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots and an Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Woven Metallic Ribbon bow.

On the inside I added some white card with a left over piece of the DSP and a bow tied in 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack. added with a rolled up Glue Dot.

Soft Suede Blog Hop ~ Two different techniques using the Stamparatus!

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 46 – Soft Suede

Tonight I have two cards for you, both using the Stamparatus to show you how wonderful this product is and if you like things perfect, this is the tool for you!

Card 1 – is a masculine card using For The Record stamp set. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Soft Suede which has two sentiments stamped down the right side using the Stamparatus and the hinged stamping technique. This means you stamp once, move the acrylic plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat to have a uniform pattern. I stamped these in Soft Suede and Memento Black inks.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022.

The record image is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card. I added Clear Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles dies. I added a few Dimensionals to the back of the record but didn’t take off the Dimensional backings. Leave them on so the record spins. I pierced a hole through the centre of the record and the Suede layer using the Take Your Pick Tool and added a brad, gently closing it at the back. These layers are added to the card base with Dimensionals. Now the record spins!!!

The heart is Real Red card and cut using the Give It a Whirl dies and added to the brad with a glue dot.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and partially stamped the record three times across the bottom in Soft Suede ink.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 side

Card 2 – uses the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies.

My card base is Thick Basic White with layers of Soft Suede and Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP. The stamped top layer is created using the Stamparatus and the Wreath Builder technique or Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique. The cookie outline is Soft Suede ink and the solid fill image is Crumb Cake ink. It reminds me of a plate of cookies sitting on a marble benchtop 🙂

Nothing's better than SITR card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

You can see the die cut word ‘cookies’ has a 3D raised look – I applied an Adhesive Foam Sheet to the back of the Soft Suede layer and die cut this word in the centre, before gluing the white stamped layer on top to cover it up! This also gave this top section some extra depth.

Irresistible Fancy Z-Fold card

Today’s card is an irresistible Z-fold design using the gorgeous Misty Moonlight cardstock (which is retiring on 2 May). I am really sad about this, but we need to look at the positives and to the 5 new colours we will gain with the new Annual catalogue. The patterned paper is the Heart & Home 12×12 DSP and the image is from the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home stamp set and Flowers of Home dies).

Blessings of Home Z Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 closed

This entire card uses only 1 sheet of A4 Misty Moonlight cardstock. I share all the Metric measurements at the end of this post so you can make one too!

The image is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and then I coloured the image using my Wink of Stella and the following ink pads; Bumblebee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. It is really hard to photograph the glimmer this gives, but by using the Wink of Stella like a paint brush to gently add colour directly from the inkpad, gives the entire image a glorious shine!

New 2022-2024 In Colors

It’s the Anzac Day public holiday meaning a long weekend here in Victoria, and my hubby has gone to the footy, so I’ve had an extra day to play with the new In Colors!!!  Have you seen them yet? Let me introduce you to them:

2022-2024 In Colors

What do you think? Do you have a favourite colour? I fell in love with Orchid Oasis initially, but now I have them all together on one card, it is hard to choose a favourite, they are all stunning and coordinate so well together!

So here they are, all on one card – Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Tahitian Tide for the rainbow and the background DSP and stamped sentiment (On the Horizon stamp set) is the Starry Sky! This 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP pack has some great new patterns too. Even the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots match perfectly (see them at the top of each rainbow colour).

Rainbow of Happiness In Color card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The clouds are cut using the Cloud Punch with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. This paper is amazing and the photos don’t do it justice, it is so sparkly!!!!

Now that I’ve seen the cardstock colours, here they are stamped on the inside in each of the ink colours! Aren’t they bright and happy?!!!

Six cards inspired by my recent holiday!

Today’s cards are inspired by my recent week long holiday to Phillip Island. It was great to get away from the city and enjoy the slower pace of seaside living, sound of the ocean and fresh air!

When I got home after not taking any craft with me, I was inspired to get creating. So are you ready to see my projects?!!!

Here are some of the items; Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves dies, Waves of the Ocean Designer 12×12 Papers, 12×12 Blue Foil Specialty Pack, and the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. The stamp and die bundle will be in the new Annual catalogue released on 3 May, however the other items are limited and available until 3 May if not sold out prior.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

I have also used the Paradise Palms Bundle (Paradise Palms stamp set and Palms dies).

PARADISE PALMS BUNDLE 157719

Card 1 – a simple design with some DSP, then a ring/circle of the Blue Foil cut using the new Stylish Shapes dies #159183 (available 3 May) and popped up on Foam Adhesive Strips. The wave is cut in Basic White card and adhered behind the circle.

I stamped the birds and grass (On the Horizon) directly onto the DSP in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment and pelican onto Basic White and die cut. Some Pebble Enamel Shapes were added along with some Rhinestone Wave Jewels.

Soft Sea Foam Blog Hop ~ Interactive Pansy Patch

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 45 – Soft Sea Foam

Tonight’s card features the Pansy Petals DSP, Pansy Patch Bundle and the Give It a Whirl dies.

My card base is Soft Sea Foam (tent fold design). The top layer is two pieces of the Pansy Petals DSP. I placed them in my Cut & Emboss Machine and placed the large die over the top to work out where the join would be in the centre. After die cutting this large piece, I then used the circle piece from the dies to cut the window.

Turning the scallop circle mechanism (where you see the arrow), turns to feature other stamped images! Starting with the happy birthday sentiment, then next is a flower ready to bloom.

Then rotate again, you have this gorgeous pansy. The stems and leaves are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and the petals are Fresh Freesia (1st an 2nd generation stamping). The DSP layer is adhered with Dimensionals to allow space behind for the mechanism to turn. I added a small strip of Soft Sea Foam card across the centre join of the DSPs for a neater look.

Here you can see the mechanism better. The brad which the mechanism spins on, is hidden behind the scallop circle on the front (behind the Brushed Brass Butterfly). This is popped up on Mini Dimensionals.
