Scenes under the Sea

Here is another Whale of a Time Suite card which is very simple, just adding a couple of elements.

My card base is Balmy Blue with a piece of the designer paper creating the backdrop. This paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

The whale is punched from another sheet of DSP with the Whale Builder Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper is added above the whale spout and also some of the seaweed at the bottom. It just reminds me of looking down into a clear blue ocean with the element of shine and sparkle the water gives. I used the Forever Flourishing dies for these – who would have thought!!

This is such a simple card but this DSP creates the scene for you!

Cherish the Season meets Trimming the Town

Today’s Christmas card is another Bridge Fold card that will fold flat to fit into a C6 envelope!

These bells are super pretty when cut in Silver Foil and hanging from the top of the card with some of the green foliage. These are actually glued to the front of the window sheet to show the Designer Paper behind.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and I used the Stamparatus so I could ink the image multiple times to achieve a nice dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out.

I die cut the bells a second time in Old Olive card and replaced the holly inlaid in the bells. The red strip across the bells is Poppy Parade cardstock.

Measurements
Card base: 15cm x 14.8cm, score (landscape) at 2.5cm, 4.5cm, 10.5cm, 12.5cm
DSP: 2.2cm x 14.8cm (2 pieces), 6cm x 14.8cm
Window Sheet: 9cm x 14.8cm

Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

CCS Garden Green – Birthday Wreath with a pop of colour

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.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 17 – Garden Green

Yes, I know, another wreath card… but you know what, I just love them and they are so easy and effective. The only stamping is the sentiment.

The flowers are die cut in Magenta Madness and Highland Heather and each has a small rhinestone in the centre. The Magenta Bow just adds that extra touch for a wreath. I love how this wreath sits on the Brick & Mortar embossed background, as though it’s hanging on a wall.

The wreath has 3 layers; bottom layer is Soft Sea Foam, the middle is the same DSP as the background and the top layer is Garden Green. The middle layer was cut from the centre of the background layer so not the waste this gorgeous paper and the hole is covered up with the White Bricks layer anyway! I glued the bottom layer direct to the white bricks. The top two layers are glue together but then these are popped up on mini dimensionals to give it some height.

Please head over to Cathy’s blog to see all the other participants in this week’s Colour Creations Showcase!

2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a fun fancy fold card. It is a landscape bridge fold design but in the slimline style, which is all the rage right now. I love this Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. You may remember it from last year, as it was part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite and it was super popular so it stayed, yay!!!

The only stamping is the two holly leaves which were fussy cut and coloured with the Wink of Stella to pick up a little of the wet Mossy Meadow ink.

The letters are die cut in Pretty Peacock card and added to the sheet of acetate which covers the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I then added Fine Tip Glue to the holly berries and each of the letters for that lustrous shine! A couple of Star Designer Elements are added either side of the Merry.

This card folds flat to fit into a standard DL Business Size envelope!

Measurements:
Card Base: 8¼” x 5½” score short edge at 1”, 1¾”, 3¾”, 4½”
DSP: 8¼” x ⅞” (2) and 8¼” x 1⅞”
Window Sheet: 8¼” x 3¾”

Monthly Creative Showcase: Masculine Theme

Tonight’s card is a fancy fold Cube Card that is so popular right now. You can find instructions all over the internet to create these.

Masculine Cube Card using Stampin Ups World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I have kept mine fairly simple and straight forward with the decorating. The World of Good Specialty DSP has the gorgeous Gold Foil through it, so I didn’t want to go covering it up with loads of embellishments.

This shows yo the hinges on the back of the elements, to give them that floating look on the folds.

Double Fan Fold 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.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 15 – Early Espresso

Do you immediately think masculine when you see the colour, Early Espresso?! I usually do, but when I looked at the patterned papers and saw that Early Espresso is in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and it being the start of Spring, I had to go with flowers for tonight’s card!

Colour Combination - BB OO EE GF

This Double Fan Fold card was inspired by Sam Calcott, UK. I did change up my measurements slightly, but the design is practically the same. I do love a fancy fold for its wow factor and I think this really makes a statement.

The card base is Early Espresso as is the centre background layer, embossed with the Greenery TIEF. There is also a Gold Foil layer behind it.

Double Fan Fold card using Stampin Ups Ornate Garden & Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I love the three medium daisies down the front of the card and each one is made up of 3 layers; Early Espresso, stamped Bumblebee and plain Bumblebee with a Gold Foil accent in the centre from the Poppy Moments dies. The leaves are also from this die set.

Double Fan Fold card using Stampin Ups Ornate Garden & Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Classic Label Punch was used to cut it out and then it is popped up on black dimensionals. 

You may me wondering where you write a message to send this to someone? I cut a piece of white card to the same size as the Gold Foil layer on the front, then glued it to the back of the card.  This card also folds flat to fit into an envelope.

   

Here it is open flat so you can see all the angles.

Peace on Earth this Christmas

With everything that is going on in the world this year with Covid and in Melbourne we are still in lock-down, I thought this was a rather appropriate card for Christmas 2020.

Dove of Hope & World Map by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Old World Paper 3D embossing folder in the background on the Misty Moonlight card gives a beautiful soft texture and an almost water effect behind the globe.

The globe is die cut from the World of Good DSP which has gold foil accents on it which shine through the layer. I also used some Brushed Foil along the sides of the Seaside Spray panel.

The dove is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink on white card and die cut, then popped up on dimensionals, and check out those gorgeous Blue Gems!!!

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, One Sheet Wonder, Stampin' Up!

Playful Pets 6″ x 6″ one sheet wonder

I have 4 cards for you today that are created from one piece of 6″ x 6″ designer paper (beware of directional designs).

Simply place the designer paper in your trimmer with the top right corner lined up with the 3cm (from the left) and the bottom right corner lined up at the 3cm mark on the right side of the trimmer and cut. Then holding the two pieces of paper together, carefully rotate it and line it up again in the same position and cut (see below).

You should then have 4 pieces like this 

So now that you have your 4 x pieces, you can cut your 4 x card bases in accordance with what orientation best suits. I have done 2  landscape and 2 portrait. I glued the patterned paper to the cards first, then embossed the card fronts with different patterned folders. Next I die cut some of the images from the patterned paper with the coordinating dies and some of the images are stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

All the sentiments on these cards are stamped using the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set and cut with the Classic Label Punch.

This black cat is simply punched using the Cat Punch and adhered with dimensionals.

This next one has a die cut Flirty Flamingo piece behind the cat and you can see the white border drawn around it.  This is done by leaving the die on top of the die cut piece and using the White Chalk Marker, trace around the inside of the die twice!

On the inside, I stamped them all the same – using the Stamparatus made this super easy and quick. Once the stamps are setup on the stamparatus all together, ink them all at once and stamp on 4 separate inserts!

CCS – Nothing’s Better than Chocolate!

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour for our Colour Creations Showcase is Crumb Cake!

Nothing’s Better Than Chocolate during lockdown 2.0, so tonight I have a yummy card to share with you!

Nothing's Better Than Chocolate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020 Colour Creations Showcase Crumb Cake

Whether you like dark, milk, white or some other variety, there is usually some flavour that you can enjoy when it comes to chocolate. Well, my preference is dark, but this card features more of a Top Deck style block! Using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for my chocolate layers and the Dainty Diamonds TIEF to give a bit of a classy and more exclusive effect to my block. Every piece of card to create this chocolate has been sponged around the edges to give a real depth to it. Yes, it took some time, but it is so much more effective and pleasing on the eye.

Nothing's Better Than Chocolate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020, Colour Creations Showcase Crumb Cake

The inside is also decorated with a piece of chocolate as well as some stamping and more layered die cutting!

The piece of foil adds to the authenticity of a real block of chocolate being ripped open.
