Colour Creations Showcase – Bermuda Bay

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is the gorgeous, Bermuda Bay!

I just love this stunning colour and I was very happy with how my card turned out. This Beautiful Moments stamp set is so sweet and I am super happy that it carried over into the new Annual catalogue.

Beautiful Moments watercolour wash background fancy fold pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I did a water colour wash on some Water colour paper with Bermuda Bay ink mixed with some Frost White Shimmer White Paint and applied it with an AquaPainter. After it dried, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the paper down to size and used my sewing machine to add some crazy stitching around the edges as a border. I roughed up the edges with my scissors and then glued it to my card front.

The image is stamped and coloured, also with Shimmer Paint added. Cut out the image and I used my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker around the edges so it blended into the background better. This is popped up on dimensionals.

On the inside I wanted to create a pop up card with the stamped image of the two girls. I coloured them the same way.

This photo shows them a little closer, popped up (especially with the shadow)!

It is very easy to create – simply cut the insert and score it in half. Here is a template:

Pop up Card Template

When you fold this insert in half (valley fold), the two small sections need to pop into the card (mountain fold) to create the small sections. I think you can see it better on this angle. I just measured exactly where these cut lines needed to be and how wide, to sit behind the image of the girls.

Creative Showcase Sketch

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the May Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase May 2020 Sketch

Now let’s get started!

Today’s card uses the Ornate Garden Suite and the Peaceful Poppies Suite of
Products, all which will still be available in the new Annual catalogue starting 3 June!

Olive Balmy Navy White Flirty

The front of the Balmy Blue card base is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, before a layer of Old Olive card, die cut with the Ornate Layers dies. A Piece of DSP is added, long with other elements you can see.

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

This centre feature is the ornate style stamp set image stamped onto some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and die cut in a circle. I’ve coloured the image, gently in a dabbing motion so as not to ruin them, with Stampin’ Blends Markers. How pretty does it look?!!

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

On the inside I have the same image stamped on Whisper White card stock, coloured the same way and fussy cut. This is glued to the Champagne Foil Sheet, die cut with the gorgeous Ornate Layers dies. The Navy card is embossed with the new Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

But then you open it again to reveal the inside of the card!

How did I do that? The card consists of 2 standard card bases, but the Navy one is flipped over and opens in the opposite direction and is glued behind the Balmy Blue card base!

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.

Poppy Parade card – 5” x 3½”
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!)

Best Dressed Arrow Fold Card

This Best Dressed Suite is so pretty and the Designer Paper is absolutely stunning. I love all the colours in it and today I have created an arrow fold card. I searched the internet for many different types of fancy fold cards and came up with this one. I couldn’t find one with instructions for Australian measurements, but it was pretty easy to work out!

Colours: Purple Posy, Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow & Old Olive

Aren’t these new Stitched So Sweetly dies gorgeous? I just love the stitching and the different shapes in the one set for beautiful layering. They were one of the first items into my shopping bag!

On the inside, I used the extra pieces of the DSP and some white card for adding a sentiment when required.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

AWHT Blog Hop - Gift Boxes and Bags.jpg

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Tina Gillespie. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

On Saturday 16 November I attended OnStage in Sydney, an event for demonstrators only,  and I created this box for my dear friend Cathy, who picked me up from the airport and allowed me to stay with her and her family on the north shore for 2 nights. We have become wonderful friends through our love of Stampin’ Up! over the last few years and I knew her love for Haigh’s Chocolates, so I wanted to get some for her as a thank you!

IMG_0337.jpg

I knew it had to be fairly large to fit a couple of packs of chocolates inside, so I started with the base of the box. I placed it on the Simply Scored and placed one pack of the chocolates in the centre to see where the scorelines needed the be. I used a piece of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper, 12″ x 11¼” and scored each side at 3¾”. Cut as shown below and add Tear N Tape.

Haighs Gift Box measurements.jpg

The lid is a piece of Silver Foil, 6¾” x 7½” and scored on all 4 sides at 1½”. I love the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and it coordinated perfectly with the blues of this project and I know Cathy loves these colours too!

My next project is a Twist N Close Box, inspired by Sam Hammond, UK. I love how this closes up, it is so clever. I’ve used the Daisy Lane Bundle (pg.23 of Annual Catalogue) to decorate it with the Woven Threads DSP.

Here’s what it looks like open and closed from the top view. I plan on sharing these in my 2020 classes.

A full list of products can be found at the end of this post.

Now it’s time to follow the blog hop to our next participant, the lovely, Kathryn Mangelsdorf.

Look at the gold lines of the petals!!! It is super shiny and adds so much class to the richness of the colours in these roses.

Heart of Christmas – Week 3 with a Bookmark card and instructions!

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Today has been a big start to the release of the Holiday catalogue – click the image to download your copy and start shopping – you won’t be disappointed!

2019 Holiday catalogue image Craft with Kate

Tonight I have a 4″ x 4″ bookmark card using the Brightly Gleaming Suite. 

Bookmark card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming suite by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

Start with a Mossy Meadow card base 10¾” x 4⅛”.
Score at 4¼” then turn the card 90o and score again at 2¼” and then perforate this line.
Insert the smaller end into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch so the edge lines up with the perforation, punch, then trim off the excess.

Bookmark card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming suite by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue open

To decorate:
1 x DSP to 3⅞” x 3⅞”.
1 x DSP 2” x 4” and punch with the scallop tag topper punch and glue to the bookmark.
1 piece 3” x 3” for the front and 1 piece 4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla card for the inside. Rub the edges of the 3″ x 3″ card with the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink pad.
Stamp the holly images (Mossy Meadow ink) and fussy cut before adhering to the Very Vanilla square with dimensionals. Punch 2 x small baubles from DSP and 1 x larger one in Copper Foil, then emboss it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Stamp the sentiments in the Celestial Copper ink. On the inside of the card, the string is actually created by running the edge of a metal ruler on the Celestial Copper ink pad and using it as a stamp!
Finish off with a coordinating piece of ribbon. I used a bambi stapler to hold it.

and here’s a coordinating bon bon but slightly smaller than the one I shared in last week’s Christmas Blog Hop (you can see the instructions here). The only difference is that I made this one shorter starting with 8″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. All the other instructions are the same!
