Regrowth after the devastating fires

Wow, it’s April already and what a year it has been! We started the year here in Australia with those terrible bushfires raging across our country and now the coronavirus has taken over the world 😦  Thank goodness it is school holidays now and we can isolate in safety at home, meaning plenty of time to craft! Who doesn’t love a good reason for that?!!!

We need to go on and stay positive, so tonight’s card is bright and cheery and has lots of poppy flowers reminding me of the regrowth happening following the devastating fires!

Peaceful Poppies Suite Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper is amazing and you don’t need to do too much to your cards to make the most of the gorgeous designs. Adding a few embellishments from the Peaceful Poppies Elements pack made creating this card so quick to make. I love the vellum element behind the pre-printed one and that black circle really makes the poppies pop!

On the inside I added some white card with some extra triangles of DSP left over from a previous project.

A great tip to save on cardstock – stamp & die cut in the centre of your layer of cardstock. You will cover it up by gluing it to your card front and then with the layer of Designer Paper over the top!!!!

Peaceful Moments Double Gate Fold Card with Instructions

Tonight’s card is a Double Gate Fold design to show off this gorgeous designer paper!

Cut a piece of 12″ x 12″ DSP down to 5½” x 12″ and score it at 2″, 4″, 8″, 10″.
From each of the top corners, measure down 2¾” and mark with a pencil. From that pencil mark, up to the first scoreline, cut the corner off and glue it to the bottom right corner of the card (flipping the design over). Repeat this on the other side!

Gently fold your scorelines (mountain fold, valley fold, valley fold, mountain fold) to create this card.

Whisper White card – 4¾” x 3¼”
Stamp your sentiment in Black ink and add the poppies elements.

The poppy and elements are added last (be careful to add glue on the left side only!)

Masculine Creative Showcase with the Art with Heart Team

AWHT Creative Showcase Masculine

Welcome to our new Monthly Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Masculine themed projects. We have many masculine themed products in the Stampin’ Up! range including Stamp Sets and coordinating Dies, Designer Series Papers, Embellishments and Embossing Folders. The Art With Heart Team have a wonderful selection of projects to inspire you to create Masculine Masterpieces.

Now let’s get started!

This set of cards were very quick to create and I shared this style with my class ladies to help them cut into their Designer Series Papers. Starting with a simple card base, then cut one piece of DSP slightly smaller (5mm). Take the DSP and cut about a third off the bottom, then flip that piece over to the reverse design. Glue these to your card then add a strip of Tear & Tape across the join. Add some of the Braided Burlap Trim. Punch some 2″ Circles and stamp a sentiment and add a trinket with a glue dot!

This is a wonderful way to use your pretty DSPs without covering too much of the pattern with other elements. You can whip up a whole bunch of these in minutes.

My next project is a pop up box card or some call it a Card in a Box, but I wanted a longer length than usual. I needed it to be a landscape style for my golf scene, and it still fits into a C6 envelope!

Masculine card using Stampin Up Clubhouse Golf by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

Did you know that the golf ball can be cut out using your 1″ circle punch?!! Yep, it’s the perfect fit!!!

I stamped the entire image in Garden Green and die cut it out, then stamped the image again in Smoky Slate. Instead of die cutting, punch the golf ball and glue it to the die cut!

I also glued some of the grass die cuts in front and some behind the centre section for more depth. How cool are these wooden elements too?!

The back of the card is where you write your message and I have decorated it with some more of the DSP and a sentiment.

A tip: when gluing in the golfer, it is best to place your card on top of your envelope to ensure that all the images fit within the size of the envelope!

Feminine A-line dress card

Tonight’s card uses the gorgeous Dressed to Impress Bundle. As you know, I love this suite of products with some of my favourite colours in the DSP.

I used the bag die and only cut out a portion of it with some of this stunning DSP to create an A-line dress with a string of pearls!

Feminine card using Best Dressed Suite & Peaceful Poppies DSP, Stampin Up 2020 Mini by Kate Morgan, Australia.

My base is Blackberry Bliss card, also with a layer of the same card embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder. I wiped the edges along the Versamark Inkpad, added Gold Emboss Powder and heat set it. The dress is glued to the card and a string of pearls added. The sentiment is also gold embossed.

The lipstick was inked with Blackberry Bliss onto Whisper White card, die cut and coloured with Blends and the tip of the lipstick, using the Wink of Stella in the inkpad. The shoe is stamped on Flirty Flamingo card and I just used Wink of Stella to add some glimmer.

On the inside I simply stamped a shoe, then masked it and stamped the second shoe above so it appears to be behind!

PostIt Note holder with Stitched Nested Label dies using Stampin Up Best Dressed Suite 2020 Mini by Kate Morgan, Australia.

This idea was CASED from Jeanette Cobb (USA), however I used different size label dies and I added extra length to the 2″ strip, so it could fold down into the box to hold the pen in place!

I used the two largest dies and the 2nd smallest one for the sentiment. My strip was 2″ x 11⅝”, scored at 1½”, 3″, 6⅜”, 7⅞”, 9⅜”. The score down the length at ½” on both sides. The rest of the instructions see Jeanette’s YouTube instructions.

Birthday Bonanza Shaker card

Do you love a shaker card? Here is a cute one using the Birthday Bonanza DSP and the Birthday Goodness stamp set!

The shaker part of the card is created like a window box so there is no stickiness like when using Foam Adhesive Strips, for the sequins to stick to. This way they move freely inside the box.

Shaker Card using Stampin Up Birthday Bonanza DSP & Birthday Goodness 2020 Mini by Kate Morgan, Australia.jpg

I had some star & heart sequins left over from a few years ago so they are not the exact colours as used in the card, however they are a similar but lighter tones, so they work well!

Shaker Card using Stampin Up Birthday Bonanza DSP & Birthday Goodness 2020 Mini by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the cake tower in Grapefruit Grove ink then added a strip of the same DSP as the front of the card. Both of these stamps are from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.
