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 20 – Granny Apple Green

Today’s card has a very general, but pretty theme, and could be used for so many different occasions, as there are no sentiments or DSP on it!

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink. Anyway, enough mumbling on, here is my card!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The narrow strip at the bottom of the Granny Apple Green Stitched Greenery layer, is some of the ‘darker’ Silver Foil sheet. The bear was stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the Crumb Cake & Polished Pink Blends Marker Combo Packs, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The Gold Thread wrapped around the card has retired (oops), I was sure it was still available. Anyway, you could use any metallic thread you may have. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the larger flowers for more sparkle.

I finished it off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels that I adore and almost finished my pack. I might have to add some more to my next order!

I love how the piercing in the background and the Pierced Blooms die cut images go together so well. This card was inspired by Nikki Spencer who used different flowers and colour combination, but I loved the layout!

Layering Circles cards

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 19 – Gorgeous Grape

Today I have two cards using the Layering Circles Dies that I have been wanting to try for a while now. But let’s talk about this gorgeous purple tone and the colour combination I have chosen, inspired from the Hand-Penned Suite!

Colour Combination - Gorgeous Grape Blushing Bride Mint Macaron

By cutting the following Layering Circles Dies, two cards can be made:
1⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)
1⅞” (2 x Blushing Bride)
2⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)

Each of these circles are cut in half and then layered on top of each other to create these simple designs. This first card is put back together in a circle shape!

Layering Circles card 1 with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Cover the join with a sentiment (stamped on Tasteful Labels dies) and some Gold & Mint Macaron ribbons. I also added some die cuts in Gold Shimmer Vellum to add for a little extra shine.

Layering Circles cards with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My second card is pretty much the same, but I have offset the two half layered circles. I love the effect this gives and a totally different look.

Layering Circles card 2 with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Add the sentiment across where the two halves join and I also added a stamped flower and ribbon bow.

CCBH Garden Green – Unique Corner Punch Layout

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 18 – Garden Green

Tomorrow is the last chance to earn FREE product as the Saleabration period ends. Tonight I am using one of these products, the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, my favourite SAB item!

Be Dazzling Specialty Paper Saleabration 2021 Kate Morgan Australia

The Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the coordinating Hand-Penned DSP have been favourite products from the 2021-22 Annual catalogue.

Unique Corner Punch Layout using Stampin Up Hand-Penned by Kate Morgan, Australia 2021 SAB

I started with a Thick Basic White Card base, 10.5cm x 28cm folded in half at 14cm. The next Garden Green layer is 13.5cm x 10cm.

The Hand-Penned DSP is 13cm x 9.5cm. Take the Label Me Lovely punch, and insert it into one corner of the DSP with the point meeting in the centre of the punch.

Label Me Lovely Punch

Now do the same on the opposite corner. Flip your punched designs over and place back where you punched them from. Now glue these to the Garden Green layer before decorating with a centre piece.

This is the largest of the Stitched So Sweetly dies with a Be Dazzling die cut from the Penned Flower dies. The sentiment, Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, is fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

It was a difficult decision to decide which way to glue down my DSP design, so I repeated the process, but the opposite papers. So here is my second card.

Unique Corner Punch Layout using Stampin' Up Hand-Penned by Kate Morgan, Australia 2021 SAB

I decorated this one very similar to the first, but added some Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and a different sentiment. This sentiment and the background image on the Garden Green die cut, are both from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

The Be Dazzling leaves and scallop border are also from the coordinating dies.

Which one is your favourite?

CCBH Flirty Flamingo – Triple Point fancy fold 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 17 – Flirty Flamingo

Tonight I have a Triple Point fancy fold card with the In Symmetry stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry DSP. This looks quite complicated, but in actual fact it wasn’t that hard to create. I wanted my card to fit into my envelopes that I make (see Tutorials page), so I made my card base 10.5cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm. I also used two pieces of DSP 10cm x 10cm.

Triple Point Fancy Fold card using Sweet Symmetry DSP 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

I made this into a birthday card for my close friend, Angela, hence the sentiment on the front of the card!

When the card is open, there is plenty of space to write your message. I stamped this sentiment using the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

CCBH Early Espresso – Blackberry Beauty Pop Up Card & 3D Dahlia Sympathy 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 16 – Early Espresso

Early Espresso is a very dark brown and not one that I tend to go to often, so I had to really think about what I was going to create. I received a sample of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP as part of a team share and noticed that Early Espresso was one of the colours! Winning!

So tonight, I have projects using the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper. These papers are gorgeous with the gold foil accents. I am also using the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack which has these lovely gold foil embellishments, including the tag.

Blackberry Beauty DSP Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 CCBH.

The sentiment (Forever Fern stamp set) is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which coordinate perfectly.

But open this card and a surprise awaits!

Pieces of the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack were used on the inside pop up box as well as the Meadow Dies to cut some of the stunning Be Dazzling Specialty paper (free choice during SAB).

My next card is a Sympathy card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

The Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder is used on the base card. The Stitched Rectangle Dies cut from some In Good Taste DSP was placed on an angle in the corner.

Sympathy card using Delicate Dahlias SAB by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The vase is created from the cloche image from Sweets & Treats stamp set, stamped onto Basic White card. The Blending Brushes with Early Espresso ink was applied over one of the stencils from Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks. Once the pattern was on the cloche, I removed the mask and lightly brushed more colour so the white wasn’t so stark. Using Paper Snips, cut it out, turn it upside down and glue to the card. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool. This was then cut into three separate words and added with Mini Dimensionals.

The flower was stamped four times and the leaves twice with Black Memento ink onto Basic White. These were fussy cut (see below image) and then coloured using the Blending Brushes and Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia inks. I also used the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Markers on the petals, before adding some Wink of Stella. Next was to add dimensionals behind the petals and lining them up on top of each other!

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 15 – Daffodil Delight

The Hand-Penned Petals Bundle is the focus of tonight’s card, along with the very pretty Hand-Penned DSP. As you can see my card base is Daffodil Delight.

Hand-Penned DSP

Inlay Technique Fancy Fold card using Hand-Penned Bundle for Daffodil Delight CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Penned Flower dies which are part of this bundle, were used to die cut the floral images. The Gold Foil one is adhered behind the front panel and the Basic Black background adhered to the front of the panel. I die cut the intricate die in Basic White card, as well as Blushing Bride,Daffodil Delight & Gold Foil. I removed the inside pieces and placed them inside the white die cut for the inlay technique. I used my Blends Markers (Highland Heather, Mint Macaron), to colour the leaves and smaller flowers.

The Word Wishes dies are are used to cut the sentiment on the card front. I cut it multiple times, 4 times in Basic Black card and once in Gold Foil and glued them all together.

Stamp the floral image on the white panel with Daffodil Delight ink and the sentiment in Memento Black ink. You can place the white panel on the back or the inside of the card. I chose to glue it to the back to cover up where my panel joined the card base. The flowers have Wink of Stella on them for a gorgeous shine!

CCBH Crumb Cake – Delicate Dahlias and Feels Like Home

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 13 – Crumb Cake

I have chosen a soft colour palette for tonight’s card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This is one of the free items in Sale•a•bration brochure with any $180+ order. This stamp set has the outline for the flower and also a full image stamp to colour inside the lines. I found using the Stamparatus was much easier to line the stamps up!

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

Colour Combination - Crumb Cake

My card base is Blushing Bride, embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the outline of the dahlia flower onto a post-it note and cut it out with Paper Snips, on the inner edge of the stamping. Then I took an A5 piece of Basic White cardstock and stamped one of the dahlia flowers then placed the post-it note over the top and stamped the second flower and the third flower using the same process.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the outline of the flowers in Crumb Cake and the centres are Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card and cut out with Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is smaller than the punch, so I placed it back in the punch and took more off each end. I used a sponge dauber to softly add ink around the edges.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

The wood frame is the In Good Taste DSP and die cut using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the smaller Stitched Rectangle Die again to cut out the stamped flowers to insert into the frame. The frame and the sentiment are all added to the card base on dimensionals.

Card 2 is for Father’s Day! Have you made your cards yet?!!! Father’s Day is not far away, as in Australia, we celebrate it on 5th September. As I need to mail my cards (possibly both this year if we are still in lockdown), I needed to get them in the mail this week. So for my card tody, I am creating a fancy fold with the Feels Like Home stamp set.

Open the front of the card to begin revealing your centre message panel.

and the next to reveal the message inside with some In Good Taste DSP on the side panels. These sentiments are from the Hats Off stamp set.

Here is a close up of the image on the card front, stamped with Versamark Ink with White Emboss Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool. I was thinking of colouring it, but I loved the crispness of the white against the Crumb Cake, so I left it. The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Basic measurements:

Update: Want to hear a funny story? Actually, it’s not funny at all and I want to cry. We have a 5 month old puppy, Arlo, who loves to chew… well, he got to my card (that was in an envelope) and this is all that’s left of it, along with the chewed up paper/envelope 😢 Back to the drawing board to create another one for my dad, grrr. Lucky I still have a week to get it made and that I had photographed this one already!!!

CCBH Cinnamon Cider – Post It Note Holder, matching Card and Envelope

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 11 – Cinnamon Cider

This week I have more Hand-Penned Petals Bundle projects, starting with a Post It Note Holder! These are great little gifts to have on hand to give to family and friends and Cinnamon Cider happens to be one of the colours in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Hand-Penned DSP

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped with Versamark, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set with a Heat Tool. I coloured it with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider. I also used the Colour Lifter to dot on the Cinnamon Cider bloom to give it a little extra texture. Then I die cut it using the coordinating Penned Flower Dies. Some Genial Gems are added as I always love some gems!

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

4 pieces of DSP are placed on the front, the back and two on the inside; one under the post it notes and the other you can see below. A strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper is added to the front and inside panel.

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 open

Basic Instructions
Cardstock – 7″ x 3¼”, score each end at 3¼” & 2 pieces 3¼” x ¾” for reinforcement.
DSP – 3″ x 3″ (4 pieces).
Ribbon – 10″ cut in half for the handles.

Card & Envelope – I started with a Thick White card base of 28cm x 10.5cm and fold in half at 14cm. The patterned paper layer measures 13.5cm x 10cm and is adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Hand-Penned Bundle card & envelope for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut the two dies at once with Cinnamon Cider cardstock, as the intricate die fits neatly inside the border one. I also used the border die (usually to die cut the stamped image) with the Gold & Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper. I placed some Seal+ on the back and wrapped some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon across. Dimensionals were added and adhered to the cardbase. Glue the Cinnamon Cider border die cut onto the Gold die cut.

Next I die cut the inticate die in Basic White card and used my Blends markers to colour the leaves and flowers. Glue this inside the border die cut. I also fussy cut some smaller flowers from another sheet of DSP and glued them to the card. I added some Genial Gems to the centres of the fussy cut flowers and on the DSP card base layer.

To finish, I added a strip of DSP inside the card and the Cinnamon Cider intricate die cut.

Then I needed to make a coordinating envelope using  single piece of 12″ x 6″ DSP. How cool is it to have coordinating items?!!!

CCBH Bumblebee – Pierced Blooms in a natural arc

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 7 – Bumblebee

I really love the layout of this card, its simplicity, but also the natural wood textured paper (In Good Taste DSP – which is on sale this month)!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Thick Basic White card was die cut using the Basic Borders die to create that gorgeous stitched curve. Two pieces of A6 DSP were glued together and placed behind the curve to create the card front. By doubling up the DSP, it not only made it more sturdy, but the inside compliments the front of the card! Just Jade and Magenta Madness are the other two card stocks for the floral images. The sentiment is stamped in Bumblebee on some scrap card and die cut using the die from the Pierced Blooms dies. While the card is still in the die, turn it over and use the stylus from the Simply Scored to run around the inside edge. This gives that gorgeous raised edge around the sentiment!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

To create the splatters, I placed some Bumblebee ink onto an acrylic block and squeezed my Wink of Stella into it, to make it juicy then tapped it against my fingers to get the splatters, of course with an extra glitter effect.

I made some faux resin dots with a hole punch and some fine tip glue.

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

On the inside you can see the same DSP as the front. I also added two small different size strips of card for extra colour and some more Stitched Blooms!

I saw this idea from The Paper Papillon and decided to case it but changed up the colours and papers to make it my own.
