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.

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.

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?

Colour Creations Showcase – Coastal Cabana

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Coastal Cabana!

This is such a beautiful colour and it always makes your projects beam with happiness. Today is my youngest daughter’s birthday, and I made this card for her. This is birthday #2 in lockdown!

I used Coastal Cabana as my card base and Coastal Cabana features heavily in the Playing with Patterns Designer Paper.

Playing with Patterns & Stitched Triangles for CCS Coastal Cabana by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

This is my first time creating with these Stitched Triangle dies and I just love them, especially with this patterned paper. Die cutting many triangles in each of the 3 designs and placing them onto the card with dimensionals so they have some extra height.

I also used the Well Written dies for the sentiment, banners and the butterfly which are glued on top of the triangles on the front of this card.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside with a strip of coordinating patterned paper and in this case, a wonderful sentiment using the Family Party stamp set! I also added a couple of the Purple Posy Butterfly Gems for added interest. Aren’t they sweet?!!!

Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique with Timeless Tulips

This is not a colour combination I would usually choose, but I got my inspiration from the patterned paper, Plaid Tidings DSP.

Colour Combination - MM MM GAG WW

Timeless Tulips Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Technique: rub your inkpads onto your craft mat, next to each other but not touching, covering about the same size area as your paper. Spritz with water. You can used a bone folder or palette knife to blend the colour into each other. Place a piece of White tissue paper on top and let it absorb the colour. Carefully lift the tissue paper and place it onto some paper towel to dry.

Place some adhesive sheet onto a piece of white cardstock and remove the wax layer so the entire sheet is sticky. Scrunch up the tissue paper, open it up and stick it to the card. Punch out your tulips with the Tulip Builder Punch.

The Mango Melody card is embossed with the Wrapped in Texture TIEF and the Melon Mambo card base is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The white circle is cut using the Stitched Shapes dies, stamped and added to the card with dimensionals for some height.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set, before fussy cutting it out and adding it with Mini Dimensionals. Add some glittered enamel dots and a ribbon bow to finish.

Colour Creations Showcase – Cherry Cobbler

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cherry Cobbler!

I am using the Prized Peony Bundle for this card, with the Dainty Diamonds and Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folders for beautiful textural interest.

A classic colour combination often used for Christmas, but also works with anything floral related.

Colour Combination - CC OO VV

Just look at the texture from those embossing folders in the background and on the leaves, and the gold heat embossing on the petals for gorgeous shine!!!! The addition of the scalloped lace trim adds a touch of softness.

Peony Peek-a-boo card

Today I have created a fancy fold card using the Prized Peony Suite. These stunningly soft colour tones are so feminine and appealing to the eye, especially with the vellum square doilies for added texture.

I coloured the blooms with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Petal Pink and Old Olive.

Forever Fern with the Baby Wipe Technique

AWHT Creative Showcase

The Art With Heart Team are back with another Creative Showcase, this time featuring different colouring techniques. The Stampin’ Up! range contains a bevy of functional and effective colouring tools; Blends Markers, Water Painters, Inks, Daubers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers and more. Enjoy the amazing projects our team members have to share with you, demonstrating these products.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight I am sharing the baby wipe technique featuring the Forever Fern Bundle. To get started setting up your technique, you will need a couple of baby wipes folded in half on a plate. Take your chosen ink refill bottles, and place a few drops of each colour randomly so you have different colours next to each other, leaving a little space between the colours so they can spread and merge. This is now your inkpad, stamp your image right into the baby wipes. When using this technique, you want to make the most of the ink, so expect to make loads of projects with stamped images from the one batch. I stamped lots of sheets of A4 Shimmery White card to make the most of it!

Bumblebee Jade Magenta

I stamped the background with the one image. The foliage behind the sentiment is stamped in Just Jade ink and die cut and another of the leaf images stamped the same way as the background.

How gorgeous does that sentiment look in all those pretty merged colours?!

My next card I used the inlay technique. The foliage is stamped using the baby wipe technique and then the Just Jade layer is die cut with only the dies randomly placed before being embossed with the Greenery embossing folder. This is glued to the Magenta Madness layer and then the foliage glued inside! The sentiment is stamped on white card and die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies.

The gold hoop embellishment is added and some more foliage is die cut out of card stock and popped up on dimensionals on the edge of the hoop. To finish off I added a bumblebee gingham bow, In Color Enamel dots and some of the gold thread.

My final card tonight is my favourite. I love the background image in these colours. It is a more delicate leaf image and very feminine.

The Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack has this gold thread and when you cut it in small pieces, it unravels and you get these delicate threads. I placed them behind the die cut images for a softer look.

Of course, with some left over images, I added these die cuts to the inside of each card!

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight &amp; Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blushing Bride

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blushing Bride!

Oh how I love this Arrange a Wreath Bundle 🤍 and especially with this colour combination of Blushing Bride, Magenta Madness and Whisper White.

Blushing Bride Magenta Madness Whisper White

White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, scored at 12.5cm
Blushing Bride Layer: 11.5cm x 11.5cm, embossed with the Greenery Embossing folder

Arrange a Wreath Feminine Handmade Birthday Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The 3 x wreaths are die cut in each of the coloured cardstock. The Magenta Madness and White wreaths are glued together and the Blushing Bride wreath is added on top with mini dimensionals. Add some Wink of Stella to the Blushing Bridge wreath.

Stamp 8 x hearts in Magenta Madness ink and die cut them out. These are added with mini dimensionals and a ribbon bow added with Multipurpose glue.  

The sentiment is stamped onto white card and cut using the Everyday Label Punch and added to the centre with dimensionals. Are you wondering why the punched piece doesn’t look like the punch shape? Well, I needed a smaller shape but I liked the shape of the side of this punch, so when placing the sentiment into the punch, I punched it closer to the top of the sentiment, then turned it around and put it back into the punch from the inside and slid it in until I was happy with the position and punch!!! Tada!!!
