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.

Monochrome Creative Showcase

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the March Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a masculine card predominantly using the Waterfront stamp set and Night of Navy and White. The sentiment is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

My next card is a sneak peek at some new product coming soon for my feminine Rococo Rose Monochrome card. This is the Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Border Dies & Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. (All these items will be available in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June, or now if you wish to join and add them to your starter kit).

Monochrome Ornate Style Feminine card Stampin Up 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Emboss the Rococo Rose card base with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Die cut the border die in the same colour card once, then line it up on the opposite side to achieve the strip of fancy border.

Stamp the floral image in Versamark ink onto whisper white card, added clear emboss powder and heat set it. Then I used a sponge dauber and roughly inked the entire image, before fussy cutting.

Using the Rococo Rose Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, colour the image. I also used the Light marker to outline the entire image. I used the dark maker to colour the rhinestones and the Whisper White Ribbon.

Monochrome Ornate Style Feminine card Stampin Up 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia s

On the inside, I used the Ornate Border die to create that floral die cut down the right side. The rhinestones are the perfect size to sit in the centre of the flower. The sentiment is stamped using the Family Party Stamp set.

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.

Elegant Wedding card

Tonight’s card is a Wedding card for my cousin who recently got married. Using the gorgeous Happy Birthday to You stamp set I created this very feminine wedding card. This stamp set can be earned FREE with any $90 order during Sale•a•bration!!!

The embossed background (Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Embossing Folder) adds a touch of elegance for such a special occasion.

The Stitched So Sweetly dies were used to die cut the scallop rectangle in Shimmery White card stock. This gives a gorgeous shimmer to the image when coloured. The image is stamped in Sahara Sand ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Happy Birthday to You Feminine Wedding card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The sentiment is stamped using the Stamparatus with Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool before fussy cutting around it! The Petal Pink 1/4″ (6.4mm) Metallic-edge Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

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.

Masking Little Ladybugs

Have a look at this single layer card often known as Simple Stamping! It has loads of colour and doesn’t necessarily need lots of layers, just simple colouring.

Little Ladybug Hostess Stampin Up Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia

However, if you look a little closer, you may see that I have used the Masking Technique with the flowers to give the feeling of depth in the images.

The inside has a sentiment and some more of the little ladybugs stamped across the bottom and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.
