Orchid Oasis Blog Hop

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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.

Forever Fern in Orchid Oasis for colour creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

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.

On the inside I added some white card with a left over piece of the DSP and a bow tied in 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack. added with a rolled up Glue Dot.

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).

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.

I finished with adding three Brushed Brass Butterflies and three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

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?!!!

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.

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 39 – Real Red

Tonight’s card features the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set & Penned Flowers dies) from the Annual catalogue.  I stamped this image four times (3 for the front and 1 inside) in Memento Black ink and coloured them using Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs (Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Just Jade).

My card base is Thick Basic White with a smaller layer dry embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I added a small strip of the All Together 6″x6″ DSP, and die cut the bottom with the scallop border die from the Penned Flowers dies.

The sentiment panel is cut with one of the Tasteful Labels dies and stamped in Black Memento ink. This sentiment is from the Catching Butterflies stamp set (Saleabration item which can be select for free with a $90 product order). Saleabration ends on 16 March in Australia. This panel is popped up on Dimensionals and a Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon bow is added with a Glue Dot and some of my favourite, Brushed Brass Butterflies Embellishments.

CCBH Pumpkin Pie: Garden Greenhouse

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 38 – Pumpkin Pie

Tonight’s colour is one I am really not a fan of. I find orange a really tough colour to work with, but I guess that is part of our challenge, right?!!! I have used the Garden Greenhouse Bundle for my card tonight.

Garden Greenhouse Bundle card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The Pumpkin Pie card base is 21cm x 14.8cm, scored in half. I dry embossed the front with the Pretty Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). The next layer is Basic White and I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Using my Blending Brushes and Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks I gently added Pumpkin Pie ink (although I think a little Poppy Parade was still on my brush). I wrapped some Soft Succulent Satin Shimmer Ribbon across the front and adhered to the back of this layer with Stampin’ Seal, then glued it to the card front.

I die cut the scalloped layer in Basic White card using the Scalloped Contour dies. I stamped the greenery in Soft Succulent ink in the background and some flowers in Pumpkin Pie. The greenhouse is die cut in Basic White for the top and Vellum underneath. This was adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

TIP: with liquid glue, apply a small amount as it goes a long way. Let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes translucent before adhering to your card. It will still be very sticky but avoids glue oozing out and going where you don’t want it!

I die cut some of the foliage in Basic White card and coloured them with Soft Succulent Blends Combo Markers. I stamped some flowers and used the coordinating die to cut them out. These are all glued to the front of the greenhouse.

Here is a closer look.

The sentiment is stamped on Pumpkin Pie card with Versamark ink. White Emboss Powder was added then melted with my Heat Tool. I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut it out.

The scalloped layer and sentiment are added to the card on Dimensionals.

On the inside, I simply added some Basic White card and stamped some foliage and orange flowers in the bottom corner. The envelope was stamped the same!

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 37 – Poppy Parade

Tonight I have a fancy fold card using the Tulip Fields and Flowering Tulips Bundles. This tapering Trifold design gave me the idea to stamp the field on the inside as though in the distance, and then die cut the gorgeous tulips in the foreground.

Flowering Fields Tulips Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The card base is 21cm x 14.8cm, scored in half. One side is scored in half again and folded back on itself. I measured 5cm from the bottom and marked with a pencil. Then cut from the mark up to the centre fold at the top! This gave my design an extra layer to show off this gorgeous DSP!

Here is the card fully open to show the white panel on the inside for your written message. What a cute scene, hey?!!!

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 35 – Petal Pink

Tonight’s card focuses on the Saleabration double item, Friendly Hello stamp set and 12″ x 12″ Designer Papers. Both of these items can be selected free with a $180 product order!

SAB Friendly Hello 159990

Card 1 – I have used the Basic Borders dies to cut the lovely scalloped edging and the Scalloped Contours dies for the white centre panel. The stamping is done in Black Stazon, Petal Pink and Pool Party with the same inks used to colour the bird using Blender Pens.

Friendly Hello SAB card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I added Wink of Stella to all the flowers for extra shine. The sentiment and the bird image were fussy cut using paper snips before adding with mini dimensionals.

Friendly Hello SAB card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, 2022

Card 2 – pretty much uses the same products, but I have stamped directly onto the DSP background in Misty Moonlight ink. The new Vellum Layering Designs adds a softness to the background and I have die cut it with the Scalloped Contour dies. The Misty Moonight layer is cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies and then the smaller of the Scalloped Contour dies in Petal Pink card. This is stamped in Versamark ink with the same stamp as the background. White Emboss powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Friendly Hello Bundle SAB by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2022 Petal Pink, Misty Moonlight

The bird image is stamped in Misty Moonlight, fussy cut and colour using Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers (Petal Pink & Pool Party). A few extra leaves were stamped and glued behind the main image, added with dimensionals. This gave some extra depth.

The sentiment is also White Heat Embossed onto Misty Moonlight card and fussy cut with Paper Snips. Two pieces of the new 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon Combo pack were tied in a bow and added with a Glue Dot.
