CCBH Flirty Flamingo – Triple Point fancy fold card

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 17 – Flirty Flamingo

Tonight I have a Triple Point fancy fold card with the In Symmetry stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry DSP. This looks quite complicated, but in actual fact it wasn’t that hard to create. I wanted my card to fit into my envelopes that I make (see Tutorials page), so I made my card base 10.5cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm. I also used two pieces of DSP 10cm x 10cm.

I made this into a birthday card for my close friend, Angela, hence the sentiment on the front of the card!

When the card is open, there is plenty of space to write your message. I stamped this sentiment using the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

HOC Week 12 – Bay Window Fancy Fold Card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have a Bay Window fancy fold card. It may look quite complicated but it is actually very easy to make and doesn’t it look impressive?!!!

I am using the Penguin Playmates DSP & Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. Each can be earned for FREE with any $90+ order during Saleabration (ends 30 September) or select both for a $180+ order!

My card base is Fresh Freesia and the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty paper was added in two small strips down each side on the front of the card.

The images on the front of this card have been fussy cut from one of the sheets of the DSP. The penguin on the right side has been punched out of the sheet of DSP using the Penguin Builder Punch. I also punched out another penguin in Thick Basic White card and glued it behind to add more strength before placing three dimensionals behind it and adding it to the card. This is how the card sits up, by placing the edge of the card behind the penguin.

The Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments was coloured on the shiny side using the Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Marker and glued to the card.

The sentiments are from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. I fussy cut a fox to place on the inside with the sentiment.

CCBH Early Espresso – Blackberry Beauty Pop Up Card & 3D Dahlia Sympathy Card

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 16 – Early Espresso

Early Espresso is a very dark brown and not one that I tend to go to often, so I had to really think about what I was going to create. I received a sample of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP as part of a team share and noticed that Early Espresso was one of the colours! Winning!

So tonight, I have projects using the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper. These papers are gorgeous with the gold foil accents. I am also using the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack which has these lovely gold foil embellishments, including the tag.

Blackberry Beauty DSP Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 CCBH.

The sentiment (Forever Fern stamp set) is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which coordinate perfectly.

But open this card and a surprise awaits!

Pieces of the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack were used on the inside pop up box as well as the Meadow Dies to cut some of the stunning Be Dazzling Specialty paper (free choice during SAB).

My next card is a Sympathy card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

The Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder is used on the base card. The Stitched Rectangle Dies cut from some In Good Taste DSP was placed on an angle in the corner.

Sympathy card using Delicate Dahlias SAB by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The vase is created from the cloche image from Sweets & Treats stamp set, stamped onto Basic White card. The Blending Brushes with Early Espresso ink was applied over one of the stencils from Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks. Once the pattern was on the cloche, I removed the mask and lightly brushed more colour so the white wasn’t so stark. Using Paper Snips, cut it out, turn it upside down and glue to the card. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool. This was then cut into three separate words and added with Mini Dimensionals.

The flower was stamped four times and the leaves twice with Black Memento ink onto Basic White. These were fussy cut (see below image) and then coloured using the Blending Brushes and Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia inks. I also used the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Markers on the petals, before adding some Wink of Stella. Next was to add dimensionals behind the petals and lining them up on top of each other!

Sweet Symmetry Criss Cross Card

Today’s project uses In Symmetry stamp set and the coordinating Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  This is called a Criss Cross card, a fancy fold design that is fun and quite easy to put together.

Sweet Symmetry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Take a piece of the Sweet Symmetry DSP and cut it in half (beware of your pattern). Place in your Trimmer and score at 3-3/4″ and 8-1/4″. Work out which side of the paper you want on the inside or outside and fold as desired. I wanted the brighter pattern on the outside for this one!

Sweet Symmetry card

Now place some Multipurpose Glue along the bottom sides and up the sides to the cut edge. Fold these over to seal your envelope.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow at the front.

The Tasteful Labels dies were used to cut a piece of the DSP for the matt layer behind the sentiment. The Label Me Lovely Punch was used to cut some Basic White card.  I placed the punched piece back in the punch but with the straight sides now at the fancy end, so I got the fancy border all the way around!

The Basic White insert measures 4″ x 5-5/8″. All the stamping is done using Bumblebee & Just Jade inks. Some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the stamped flower to embellish.

CCBH Crumb Cake – Delicate Dahlias and Feels Like Home

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 13 – Crumb Cake

I have chosen a soft colour palette for tonight’s card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This is one of the free items in Sale•a•bration brochure with any $180+ order. This stamp set has the outline for the flower and also a full image stamp to colour inside the lines. I found using the Stamparatus was much easier to line the stamps up!

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

Colour Combination - Crumb Cake

My card base is Blushing Bride, embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the outline of the dahlia flower onto a post-it note and cut it out with Paper Snips, on the inner edge of the stamping. Then I took an A5 piece of Basic White cardstock and stamped one of the dahlia flowers then placed the post-it note over the top and stamped the second flower and the third flower using the same process.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the outline of the flowers in Crumb Cake and the centres are Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card and cut out with Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is smaller than the punch, so I placed it back in the punch and took more off each end. I used a sponge dauber to softly add ink around the edges.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

The wood frame is the In Good Taste DSP and die cut using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the smaller Stitched Rectangle Die again to cut out the stamped flowers to insert into the frame. The frame and the sentiment are all added to the card base on dimensionals.

Card 2 is for Father’s Day! Have you made your cards yet?!!! Father’s Day is not far away, as in Australia, we celebrate it on 5th September. As I need to mail my cards (possibly both this year if we are still in lockdown), I needed to get them in the mail this week. So for my card tody, I am creating a fancy fold with the Feels Like Home stamp set.

Open the front of the card to begin revealing your centre message panel.

and the next to reveal the message inside with some In Good Taste DSP on the side panels. These sentiments are from the Hats Off stamp set.

Here is a close up of the image on the card front, stamped with Versamark Ink with White Emboss Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool. I was thinking of colouring it, but I loved the crispness of the white against the Crumb Cake, so I left it. The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Basic measurements:
Crumb Cake Card: 10.4cm x 14cm & 9cm x 9cm
Crumb Cake Card: 10.5cm x 28cm, scored at 10.5cm & 21cm
Thick White card: 13.5cm x 10cm & 10cm x 10cm
In Good Taste DSP: 10cm x 10cm & 10cm x 6.5cm (2)

Update: Want to hear a funny story? Actually, it’s not funny at all and I want to cry. We have a 5 month old puppy, Arlo, who loves to chew… well, he got to my card (that was in an envelope) and this is all that’s left of it, along with the chewed up paper/envelope 😢 Back to the drawing board to create another one for my dad, grrr. Lucky I still have a week to get it made and that I had photographed this one already!!!

CCBH Cinnamon Cider – Post It Note Holder, matching Card and Envelope

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 11 – Cinnamon Cider

This week I have more Hand-Penned Petals Bundle projects, starting with a Post It Note Holder! These are great little gifts to have on hand to give to family and friends and Cinnamon Cider happens to be one of the colours in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Hand-Penned DSP

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped with Versamark, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set with a Heat Tool. I coloured it with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider. I also used the Colour Lifter to dot on the Cinnamon Cider bloom to give it a little extra texture. Then I die cut it using the coordinating Penned Flower Dies. Some Genial Gems are added as I always love some gems!

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

4 pieces of DSP are placed on the front, the back and two on the inside; one under the post it notes and the other you can see below. A strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper is added to the front and inside panel.

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 open

Basic Instructions
Cardstock – 7″ x 3¼”, score each end at 3¼” & 2 pieces 3¼” x ¾” for reinforcement.
DSP – 3″ x 3″ (4 pieces).
Ribbon – 10″ cut in half for the handles.

Card & Envelope – I started with a Thick White card base of 28cm x 10.5cm and fold in half at 14cm. The patterned paper layer measures 13.5cm x 10cm and is adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Hand-Penned Bundle card & envelope for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut the two dies at once with Cinnamon Cider cardstock, as the intricate die fits neatly inside the border one. I also used the border die (usually to die cut the stamped image) with the Gold & Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper. I placed some Seal+ on the back and wrapped some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon across. Dimensionals were added and adhered to the cardbase. Glue the Cinnamon Cider border die cut onto the Gold die cut.

Next I die cut the inticate die in Basic White card and used my Blends markers to colour the leaves and flowers. Glue this inside the border die cut. I also fussy cut some smaller flowers from another sheet of DSP and glued them to the card. I added some Genial Gems to the centres of the fussy cut flowers and on the DSP card base layer.

To finish, I added a strip of DSP inside the card and the Cinnamon Cider intricate die cut.

Then I needed to make a coordinating envelope using  single piece of 12″ x 6″ DSP. How cool is it to have coordinating items?!!!

CCBH Blushing Bride – Panel Tower Fold Card & more!

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 6 – Blushing Bride

Card 1 – I finally opened my pack of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper (on sale this month) and the Gold 6″x6″ Metallic Specialty Paper for this fancy fold card.

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The image I initially stamped in Memento ink in the Stamparatus. I coloured it with Blends Combo Markers (Daffodil Delight & Mint Macaron), however they don’t come in Blushing Bride, so I used the stamp and Blushing Bride Inkpad to colour the main bloom and filled in the missing area with the Wink of Stella while the ink was still damp. Then I placed it back into the Stamparatus in the same position and inked the stamp with Versamark ink and stamped over the top of the Memento outline. Then I added Heat & Stick Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. Next, add some Gilded Flakes and rub around with your finger to remove the excess before die cutting the image. Doesn’t it look gorgeous?!!!

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

The scallop squares are cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. These are rectangular, however once you cut one, I then placed the die partially over the rectangle to cut it down to a square!

The back of the card is where you write your message to the recipient!

Here is how it fits into the Very Vanilla C6 envelope for posting!

Panel Tower Fold Card using Hand-Penned Petals by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 envelope

I cased this idea from Samantha Clayton (Mixed Up Craft), but used different products and I altered my measurements so this card would fit into our Very Vanilla C6 envelope!

Basic Instructions
Misty Moonlight card base: 8¼” x 6”, score (landscape) at 1″, 2″, 3″ from each end.
Rotate 90° with edge of card at 1″ mark – cut from first scoreline to third scoreline only. Lift the blade and cut from the next scoreline down to the last scoreline only. Repeat this on the other side.
Blushing Bride cardstock: 4⅛” x ⅞” (2) and 5⅞” x ⅞” (2)
DSP layers: 4″ x ¾” (2) and 5¾” x ¾” (2)
Basic White cardstock for back: 5¾” x 2¼”
The folds can be worked out from the photo images above.

Card 2 – this card also uses similar products to the previous card, with the addition of this gorgeous Stitched Greenery Die used on the Basic Black layer. The patterned paper is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies giving that pretty scallop edge and stitched border. I also used the smaller rectangle die in vellum (behind the flower).

Hand-Penned Bundle for Blushing Bride CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

The banner is actually made of cardstock – I cut  2cm strip and folded it in half lengthwise and glued it, so I had the same design on both sides. Then I folded it in a ‘z’ and cut the ends as banners with my paper snips. The main floral image and the sentiment are stamped with Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and gently heat set this with the Heat Tool so the powder just melts, then add Gilded Leafing. Using a sponge dauber, gently rub in small circular motions to remove the excess gilding.

Using the Penned Flower dies to cut it out, I coloured the image with Water Painters and ink directly from the Soft Succulent, Blushing Bride & Pale Papaya inkpads.

I repeated the process for the main image twice and placed the second one on the inside of the card, after I added some Soft Succulent ink with a Blending Brush.

Sweet Strawberry Birthday

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 46 – Shaded Spruce

Shaded Spruce is from the Regals collection. It isn’t a colour I use very often, so it was very challenging and it may not look it, but this card took me ages to create. I even had to go to the Colour Coach swatch for inspiration.

Shaded Spruce

I chose the third combination and went for the Sweet Strawberry Bundle that is carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue, yay!

My card base is Shaded Spruce and I randomly stamped a single image onto Gray Granite cardstock in the one colour. Once it was dry, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I sponged the edges with Shaded Spruce ink to soften the edges when on the card base.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and fussy cut it. The strawberry was stamped in Melon Mambo ink; the outline was stamped twice using the Stamparatus to get a deeper tone. Cut it out using the Strawberry Builder punch. I wrapped the White Crinkle Seam Binding around the Granite layer and tied in a bow. I placed a Square Vellum Doilie under the ribbon and added the strawberry and sentiment on dimensionals.

On the inside, is the surprise! I had planned to use this apron on the front, but couldn’t get it work, so decided to create a pop up card! I used the All Dressed Up dies to cut the apron out of the In Good Taste DSP. The Melon Mambo trim is cut using the new Basic Borders dies and trimmed down to fit. More of the same ribbon/binding, is added for the straps.

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the larger leaf placed in the corner.

This is how it looks when attached to the pop up mechanism. Do you think it looks like an apron?

Diorama Fancy Fold card with Forever Greenery and Butterfly Beauty

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 33 – Pear Pizzazz

This is a Diorama fancy fold card that will fold into a C6 envelope, however because of the thickness, it is better in a 16cm² envelope.

The base is Thick White cardstock and the front is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

The Forever Greenery patterned paper is perfect for the feature background with the Champagne Foil butterflies [Butterfly Beauty Thinlits]. The Layering Ovals Framelits were used to cut the window and the frame.

The bubbles [Beauty Abounds] are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and the sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. This was stamped 3 times using the Stamparatus to get that darker tone.
