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.

Colour Creations Showcase – Misty Moonlight – Origami folding and a simple Triangle Christmas card

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 28 – Misty Moonlight

This is such a gorgeous rich blue and I think my favourite blue tone in the Stampin’ Up! colours. I am naturally drawn to blue, being my favourite colour!

Tonight I have two cards for you – the first being a card that I had a bit of fun learning to fold some of our Flowers for Every Season DSP in Origami. It isn’t perfect, but I will practice some more to get those nice clean, crisp folds.

This floral paper is perfect for this fold and I was happy with the final look. The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I mounted it onto some white card to frame it on the Misty Moonlight woodgrain patterned paper from the In Color DSP Pack. How beautiful are those Beaded Pearl centres?!!  They finish it off nicely.

My next card is a simple Christmas card using the Snowflake Splendor DSP, Stitched Triangle dies and the Christmas Layers dies for the snowflakes.

The Copper Star Designer Elements on top of the trees add a touch of elegance.

AWHT Colour Creations ShowcaseEach 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 27 – Mint Macaron

This is a really easy gift box to put together, even though it looks quite fancy!

It stands at 14cm tall x 13cm wide and can fit gift card, chocolates, jewellery – lots of different gifts for this Christmas.

It uses a full sheet of A4 cardstock with some scoring and minimal cutting to create the base.

The free template can be found over on my Tutorial page.

The Ornate Garden DSP is super elegant with the touch of gold foil swirls.

The Small Blooms punch was used to cut the gold foil and some Gilded Gems added to the centres.

The tag is cut with the Label Me Fancy punch and some Linen Thread tied through to attach it to the Mint Macaron ribbon at the top.

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

Heart of Christmas: Brightly Gleaming Slimline Bridge Fold design

Heart of Christmas image

Welcome back to our second Heart of Christmas post with the Art with Heart Team. Each month we are sharing Christmas inspiration with you using current Stampin’ Up! products.

Do you have a copy of the new catalogue yet? You can view it online or Email Me to request a copy be mailed to you!

2020_AUGDEC_FRONT_COVER
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.

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.

Arrange a Wreath Slimline Bridge Fold Card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Crushed Curry and I have a fun fancy fold fold card to share with you in the slimline format that is very popular right now. This card fits into a DL envelope for posting!

I must admit, I was really happy with how this card turned out and I like the Crushed Curry, but I don’t usually go to this particular shade for my first choice of yellow. The Garden Green wreaths are glued to the side panels, as is is the sentiment. There is a panel of White White behind the bridge in the background and this is stamped with another image from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set before being glued in place.

The flowers are stamped in Crushed Curry ink and then I used the fine tip end of my Stampin’ Write Marker to add the details. Some Wink of Stella is added to the centre of each flower and then I die cut them all before adhering to the card.

Using the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp the sentiment easily and get the dark depth of colour I wanted by stamping multiple times and lining it up perfectly. I inked the entire sentiment with Crushed Curry, then used my Marker to colour the “happy birthday”. 

Adding some Champagne Rhinestones adds some sparkle!

Dressed to Impress Fancy Fold 3D Pop Up card

Today is a fun 3D fancy fold design that I saw on YouTube with limited instructions, so I went about making my own with metric measurements.

The Dressed to Impress stamp set and coordinating All Dressed Up dies are fabulous products and I still had plenty of this gorgeous patterned paper left and it was perfect to use for this card. This would look great with the Flowers for Every Season DSP too! Maybe that will be my next one, now I have the measurements figured out. 😉

The Stitched Shapes dies are awesome for creating a frame for this centre piece on the front of my card. The stamped images are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and the sentiment, I have used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

Open the card and this pops out with two windows – how cool is that?

My card today is a fancy fold design using the Trimming the Town Designer Paper and the Dove of Hope Bundle.

Dove of Hope Bundle

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Place the Old Olive card in the Trimmer with the 13cm side at the top and score at 2.5cm. Fold this over and burnish with a bone folder. This creates the top of the card.

For the inside of the card, take the Whisper white card and glue the 2 pieces of Designer Paper to each side, then glue to the inside of the card base. Stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020 i

For the front of the card, place the Poppy Parade piece on the inside in the centre and line it up with the bottom of the card. Holding it carefully in place, add some glue to the top only and fold down the Old Olive flap. Now you can add the Designer Paper (I sponged the edges with Poppy Parade ink).

Trimming the Town DSP

Die cut the pieces of the dove in Whisper White card and glue a small section so the filigree part of the wings sits up a little and is not glued down. Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card. On a small piece of white card, stamp the bauble in Versamark ink, add White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Colour the bauble with Water Painters and ink pads before cutting it out with scissors and gluing it to the card.

Add 3 small rhinestones to the bauble and tie some white ribbon around the top flap and tie in a bow. I placed a glue dot behind the bow to hold it in place.

Measurements:
Old Olive card base – 14.8cm x 13cm
Whisper White card (inside) – 14.3cm x 10cm
Designer Paper (inside) – 10cm x 2.5cm (2 pieces)
Poppy Parade card – 10.3cm x 9.5cm
