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.

Prized Peony for a 50th Wedding Anniversary

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration and to feature our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 14 – Daffodil Delight

This week I have a card for a very special 50th Wedding Anniversary using the Prized Peony bundle.

Here’s how I inked the Peonies: die cut each of the 4 pieces that make up each Peony, two times in Daffodil Delight card. Then I sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink (Step 1). Take the Decorative Mask (dot design), lay it over the petals and sponge on some Mango Melody ink (Step 2). The final ink colour is Poppy Parade (Step 3).

Tip: to get the nice sponged colour on the inside petal of each piece, place a piece of scrap card or dsp inside before sponging.

Glue the petals together starting with the smallest and inserting it into the next size petal. Continue until you have them all glued together. The stamen is Daffodil Delight card sponged with Mango Melody ink. The leaves are simply stamped and die cut in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody on Daffodil Delight card and added with a small strip of Adhesive Foam Sheet or you could use dimensionals.

Because this is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, I die cut the 50 in Gold foil with the Adhesive Foam Sheet behind it for extra height.

Oh and did you wonder how I got those dots on the white card base? I used placed the decorative mask on top of the card and ran it through my cut & emboss machine!

The layers behind the flowers are Daffodil Delight (Stitched Rectangle dies) and Poppy Parade card.

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?

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.

Bright Magenta Birthday

Tonight I am featuring this stunning Designer Paper, Flowers for Every Season with the NEW in Color, Magenta Madness. Oh my, the bright and cheery colours here make my heart so happy!!!!

Magenta Madness Feminine Handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Well Written dies were cut multiple times and glued together to add some depth and so they pop up from the card a little. Those butterflies are die cut in Brass Foil and add a gorgeous shine. The centres of the flowers have the Bumblebee coloured Enamel Dots!

Behind the die cut images, you can see the whisper white layer, but can you also see the vellum layer behind it? I felt it was needed so the sentiment didn’t get too lost on that amazing designer paper.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

154056o02  154056o01

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.

Favourite Stampin Up AC 2020-21 products Craft with Kate

I started with a white square card base and layered some Just Jade card & patterned paper before stamping on the white card using the Stamp in the Round (SITR) technique.

The centre circle features can be cut from the centre of the two larger layers before gluing them down to the base card to get the most out of your products. The sentiment can also be stamped on the larger Jade card and fussy cut. This was stamped in Versamark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set before fussy cutting. This circle feature in the centre is popped up on dimensionals and a couple of 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots scatted across the card to finish it off.

Lovely You SIP card

Oh how I love a quick and easy card and this one is just that using Stamps, Ink & Paper (SIP)!

Some simple stamping to create the background and then a punch to create the sentiment.

The Lovely You Bundle is awesome – I love these smaller floral images.

Lovely You Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

I cut my stamps in half between the stem and the bloom so that I can stamp even faster. By spacing the stamps on the blocks you can have two ink pads open and ink the stamps in different colours at the same time!

Smile for Lovely You

This Lovely You Bundle was also added to my shopping cart as soon as I was able to order it during our demonstrator pre-order period. I just love the smaller floral images, especially because they are perfect for creating the Stamp in the Round style of card (SITR).

By creating a template to use in your Stamparatus, you can stamp an image, rotate the cardstock 90o and stamp again. Continue this process and you end up with a stunning design all in perfect position.
