Bottled Happiness Fancy Fold

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 9 – Blackberry Bliss

Tonight’s Fancy Fold card colours was inspired by the Awash in Beauty DSP. Using the stamp set, Bottled Happiness, the leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow, the flowers in Calypso Coral and I used a sponge dauber to add some Blackberry Bliss ink to a few flowers before pressing the Stamparatus to the card.

The Vintage Bottle Punch was used to cut the vase with Blackberry Bliss card. I found it was too big so I placed it back in the punch and took more off the bottom. It was still too big, so I repeated that step again and it was just right (sounds like a Goldilocks story, LOL)!

Bermuda Bay Fancy Fold

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 8 – Bermuda Bay

Tonight’s fancy fold card features the Count on Me stamp set, Perfectly Penciled DSP and the Butterfly Kisses DSP. The Perfectly Penciled DSP has Black & White images that can be coloured. I have used Bermuda Bay and Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers.

Count on Me Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

First step is to stamp the outline of the bear onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus and Crumb Cake ink. Re-ink and stamp a second time to get a darker colour, then take the rectangle stamp from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set, ink it up with Crumb Cake ink and stamp over the entire image. This gives the bear a wonderful colour. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut close to the outline stamping. The circle is stamped with the round shape from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink, then cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies. The heart is cut using the Give it a Whirl dies in the same Butterfly Kisses DSP. Linen Thread and the In Color Gems are added for extra texture and sparkle!

Here is the card opening up – the right hand side cardstock is adhered under the White insert.

Triangle Patchwork Card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 6 – Balmy Blue

Tonight we showcase Balmy Blue, and I have teamed it with Night of Navy and the gorgeous Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP.

I love this easy design using the gorgeous Abstract Beauty patterned papers as a patchwork style background. Using 4 rectangles of DSP measuring 6.9cm x 4.5cm and then cut each one on the diagonal so you have 8 triangles. Lay them out in your desired pattern.

Triangle patchwork Card using Stampin Up Abstract Beauty DSP & Balmy Blue for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2022 sq

The sentiment is stamped onto Basic White card and die cut using the Stylish Shapes dies. A Navy banner in the next size up was cut to place behind. I felt there was something missing, so I used the Give it a Whirl dies to cut a heart from the new In Color Glimmer card. Don’t you think it makes all the difference?!!!

On the inside a piece of Basic White card is added with another Glimmer heart in the smaller size.

Tahitian Tide Miura card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 5 – Tahitian Tide

Tonight we showcase our fifth new 2022-2024 In Colors, Tahitian Tide!

How do you pronounce Miura? [MEE] + [OOR] + [UH]. When I Googled it, I found that in 1985, Japanese astrophysicist Koryo Miura proposed a form of rigid origami, a style of folding paper (or other materials) that allows each section to remain flat—a necessary condition for stiff materials.

I have been fascinated by this fold style for a while and it was time to give it a go!

Miura Fancy Fold Card using Stampin Up In Color Tahitian Tide for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2022 closed

My card base is the Thick Basic White card and decorated with patterned papers from the new 2022-2024 In Color DSP pack and the Tea Boutique DSP pack. The Scalloped Contour dies was used to cut the white layer and then I used the fancy die from the Happiness Abounds Bundle to create that lovely pattern (notice it doesn’t cut everything out – so pretty). The flowers and leaves are stamped and die cut. The flowers are coloured using the Wink of Stella, taking some ink directly from the inkpad, to add some darker colour. The leaves are coloured with the Parakeet Party Light Stampin’ Blends marker. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This was fussy cut with Paper Snips and added on Dimensionals.

This is the card fully open so you can see all the beautiful patterned papers.

Miura Fancy Fold Card using Stampin Up In Color Tahitian Tide for Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan Australia 2022 flat

The feature on the inside is one flower white embossed and the other stamped on white. Both coloured the same way as the front. This sentiment was done using the Stamparatus. I inked only the word ‘birthday’ with Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Place it back in the Stamparatus (ensure you clean the stamp with your Shammy) and ink up the word ‘happy’ with the Tahitian Tide ink and stamp. I actually inked it a second time (benefits of using this amazing tool) to ensure I had enough ink transferred to the card before adding Clear Emboss Powder and heat setting. Fussy cut and glue across the flowers. I love how this looks against the two flowers!

I finished the card by adding some Basic Pearl Jewels!!!

There are quite a few YouTube videos of this fold (search Iced Images or Sam Calcott). I liked how there is a second piece of card added behind so it can stand up to be displayed. I mean who wouldn’t want to display a card like this?!!!!

There is plenty of room on the back of the card to write your message! It fits into a standard envelope for posting, but it may depend on how much dimension you add, if postage may be slightly higher.

Would you give this fancy fold design a go?

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Balmy Blue!

Sweet Sorbet Dutch Fold Card

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 4 – Sweet Sorbet

Tonight we showcase our fourth of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Sweet Sorbet!

This colour reminds me a bit of a retired colour, Strawberry Slush (2013-2015 In Color) although this is slightly darker. I have used Sweet Sorbet with Parakeet Party, another new in Color this year. The Bottled Happiness Bundle (Bottled Happiness stamp set and coordinating Vintage Bottle punch) features on my card, along with two designs from the In Color Designer Series Paper 6×6 Pack.

Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut two in Parakeet Party and Basic White card, and stamping the feature images on the white layer. These stamps are photopolymer, so you can stamp the first layer in Sweet Sorbet and easily line up the next leafy image in Parakeet Party and the bottle.

We are back with the new 2022-2023 CCBH, but we are going to start our showcase with the FIVE new In Colors first, then continue alphabetically through our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 1 – Orchid Oasis

Today we begin our new Colour Creations Blog Hop and we are starting the first 5 weeks with the new 2022-2024 In Colors. Today features Orchid Oasis!

I have used the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing dies with loads of new Orchid Oasis products.

My card base is Orchid Oasis. The next layer is Basic White with a piece of 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper. These layers are added to the card base on Dimensionals.

I stamped some of the Forever Fern images onto basic white card and die cut them. Others are die cut directly from cardstock and the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper (this has an Ombre effect and is stunning). The sentiment (Biggest Wish stamp set) is stamped onto Basic White card and cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies. This is added with Dimensionals. These dies are going to get loads of use, as they have Squares, banners and circle dies. I finished it off with a few of the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots and an Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Woven Metallic Ribbon bow.

Irresistible Fancy Z-Fold card

Today’s card is an irresistible Z-fold design using the gorgeous Misty Moonlight cardstock (which is retiring on 2 May). I am really sad about this, but we need to look at the positives and to the 5 new colours we will gain with the new Annual catalogue. The patterned paper is the Heart & Home 12×12 DSP and the image is from the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home stamp set and Flowers of Home dies).

Blessings of Home Z Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 closed

This entire card uses only 1 sheet of A4 Misty Moonlight cardstock. I share all the Metric measurements at the end of this post so you can make one too!

The image is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and then I coloured the image using my Wink of Stella and the following ink pads; Bumblebee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. It is really hard to photograph the glimmer this gives, but by using the Wink of Stella like a paint brush to gently add colour directly from the inkpad, gives the entire image a glorious shine!

Soft Sea Foam Blog Hop ~ Interactive Pansy Patch

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 45 – Soft Sea Foam

Tonight’s card features the Pansy Petals DSP, Pansy Patch Bundle and the Give It a Whirl dies.

My card base is Soft Sea Foam (tent fold design). The top layer is two pieces of the Pansy Petals DSP. I placed them in my Cut & Emboss Machine and placed the large die over the top to work out where the join would be in the centre. After die cutting this large piece, I then used the circle piece from the dies to cut the window.

Turning the scallop circle mechanism (where you see the arrow), turns to feature other stamped images! Starting with the happy birthday sentiment, then next is a flower ready to bloom.

Then rotate again, you have this gorgeous pansy. The stems and leaves are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and the petals are Fresh Freesia (1st an 2nd generation stamping). The DSP layer is adhered with Dimensionals to allow space behind for the mechanism to turn. I added a small strip of Soft Sea Foam card across the centre join of the DSPs for a neater look.

Here you can see the mechanism better. The brad which the mechanism spins on, is hidden behind the scallop circle on the front (behind the Brushed Brass Butterfly). This is popped up on Mini Dimensionals.

So Saffron Blog Hop ~ Pierced Daisies

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 44 – So Saffron

As a child growing up in Tasmania, I loved making daisy chains and this memory was my inspiration for tonight’s card featuring many retiring products from the 2021-22 Annual catalogue. The Pierced Blooms dies have been an absolute favourite of mine and I know I will be keeping these forever!

Some of the other products used are the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) and the Tasteful Textiles TIEF, Timeless Tulips stamp set (sentiment) and the Ornate Layers dies. Misty Moonlight is one of the In Colors that will also be retiring, but how beautiful does it look with So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Basic White?!!!

Daisy card using Pierced Blooms, ornate frames, ornate floral, tasteful textiles by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2022

I stamped the sentiment multiple times (stamped twice before reinking) down the left side of the white panel before embossing it with the Tasteful Textile 3D TIEF. The Misty Moonlight layer is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF.

I stamped the sentiment again on a small offcut of white card and layered it with Misty Moonlight and popped it up on two Dimensionals with a little piece of the Cotton Ribbon Trim behind. Four of the daisies are popped up on Dimensionals and the other two adhered with liquid glue directly to the card.

Smoky Slate Blog Hop ~ Double Pop Up Gatefold 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 43 – Smoky Slate

Tonight’s fancy fold design has been around for a while now, and I’ve finally had a go creating one! I am using the What’s Cookin’ Bundle (soon to retire 😢) so if you want it buy it, be sure to do so asap.

Double Pop Up Gatefold card using Stampin Up What's Cookin by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

I started with a Smoky Slate card base for my Double Pop Up Gatefold design. Now that my card has a baking theme, and it is something I love doing with my girls, I thought it appropriate to use the heart pattern (Sweet Talk designer paper) from the 2022 Jan-June Mini catalogue. Real Red is one of the colours in these papers, so that is what I have used for my matt layers.

Firstly, I folded and glued the mechanisms into the card, one at top left and one at bottom right.

Double Pop Up Gatefold card using Stampin Up What's Cookin by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022 mechanism

Once I had all the cardstock layers cut (you can find the measurements below), I stamped the images in Smoky Slate and Real Red ink and die cut some out with the coordinating Cookin’ dies, before gluing all the layers together and placing them onto my card.
