Designer Series Paper, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

There’s so much to love about…

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Garden Impressions Suite; Garden Impressions designer series paper with the coordinating Abstract Impressions stamp set and Springtime Impressions thinlits dies.

Abstract & Garden Impressions by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

My colour combination is Melon Mambo, Petal Pink & Shaded Spruce. Check out that pretty Metallic ribbon bow and you may notice I’ve also used the metal leaf trinket that also coordinates with the Petal Passion suite! The stamping of the Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce were stamped off first, to give that lighter tone.

Pretty Petal Promenade with an Interlocking Gatefold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP. Have you seen these papers? They are actually just like a photo, which is how Stampin’ Up! created them!

I love the softness of the petals and the colouring of these roses, but I also think it may be overpowering as a full layer on a card. So I have cut it into 2 panels to adhere to the front of the card in this fancy fold style.

Petal Promenade DSP with Share What You Love by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.

It is a gatefold card, but when you open it, the oval layers interlock!

I saw Dawn Griffiths make one of these, but of course I needed to alter the paper sizes for A4, rather than US sizing, so went back to my trusty file to find a gatefold card that I had made many years ago and adapted it.

Here it is open. I have stamped the image again and coloured the petals with the Wink of Stella, the same as the front!

Bench Fold card with Varied Vases Bundle

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a bench fold card that uses the Varied Vases bundle from the brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. This is a wonderful bundle which has 34 photopolymer stamps in the set and a coordinating punch to cut out the images. The best part is that it’s only $68.25 for the bundle!

The Wood Textures DSP is also carrying over into this new catalogue, which is wonderful news. This rarely happens but it has been so popular and it coordinates with so many of our wonderful products.

This was the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day this year ♥

Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Bermuda Bay with Accented Blooms

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today we are featuring one of my favourite colours, Bermuda Bay!!!

Today I’ve used the Accented Blooms stamp set with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch. I stamped the image with Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I coloured the images with Stampin’ Write Markers; Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay. Then I added some Wink of Stella to the Bermuda Bay flowers to add some shine and highlight the colour.

Accented Blooms Birthday card Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.jpg

Using the Trio punch, I took out a notch on the spine of the card to thread the new gorgeous grape mini striped ribbon through and tie it in a bow!

The sentiment is from the Best Bunny stamp set. I used the Stamparatus to create this. I had the sentiment on one plate and the solid image on another. I stamped the sentiment first with Versamark and then add the white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I placed it back in the Stamparatus and inked the solid image with Bermuda Bay ink and stamped it a couple of times to get a deep, rich colour. Then I used a tissue to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed sentiment. This was then punched out and added with dimensionals.

Varied Vases Bundle is a favourite!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Varied Vases bundle but this time with the gorgeous Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and the new Pearlized Doilies.

Varied Vases Stampin Up Basket Weave TIEF by Kate Morgan Australia 2018.JPG

On the vases after I had stamped them and cut them out, I added some fine tip glue to them for that added shine to look wet like water! I added them to the card with dimensionals. The tulips are also popped up with mini dimensionals. With the stamp set being photopolymer, it is very easy to line up the solid image to colour the flowers!

Blog Hop: In Colors

Blog Hop In Colour.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring “in color” theme. Check out the new 2018 – 2020 in colors and lets not forget the current 2017 – 2019 in colors. If you would like a copy of the 2018-2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Rebecca Jacovou. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I am so excited about the new upcoming in colors, they are just so bright and cheery and I love them all. They are just like a rainbow of colour and that makes me happy, so my first two cards use the 2018-2020 in colors!

This first card I have just cut panels of card and glued them to a piece of Very Vanilla card then glued it to the front of the Lovely Lipstick (my favourite in colour!) card base. A piece of Dotted Ribbon was placed across the centre. The sentiment is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added with dimensionals.

Sentiment of My Heart In Color Blog Hop 2018 Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

This stamped sentiment is the Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart and it says everything to me and everyone else on this blog hop, what crafting means to us. Isn’t it beautiful??!

This next one is also using these same in colors; Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch. The new Handwritten background stamp was placed in the Stamparatus to get this 3-toned effect. The Stampartus made it so much easier to ink up the sections starting with the lightest to the darkest, lining up the image perfectly. And if you haven’t got the crisp image and miss a little, you can ink it up again and re-stamp!

2018 In Color Blog Hop Handwritten Love What You Do Thank You card Stampin Up Annual catalogue by Kate Morgan Australia

The sentiment and flower image are from the Love What You Do stamp set. Can you see the Wink of Stella on those petals? So pretty! I added some gingham ribbon and Faceted Dots.

This next card uses Berry Burst & Powder Pink, 2017-2019 in colors, paired with Whisper White. Again I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment, but stamping it in Powder Pink, then using the Berry Burst Stampin’ Write marker to apply ink to the bottom of the sentiment end re-stamping for that dual tone.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan Australia

I have used the new Abstract Impressions bundle which will be available on 1st June. I was worried when the Butterflies thinlits were retiring, so this bundle was a must have for me!  I really wanted the butterfly to be the feature, so I die cut the image in Berry Burst card and the floral image in Whisper White, the same as the card base.

Abstract Impressions Stampin Up 2018 Butterfly with handmade bead by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out the centre of the butterfly. Can you see what I’ve done? It’s like a handmade bead! I cut a 4½” strip of DSP, tapered off at one end. Add some glue and roll it up around a skewer. Leaving the bead on the skewer, I then added some Fine Tip glue over the entire thing to make it shiny (a bit hard to tell in the photo) and let it dry overnight across the top of a bowl before adding it to my butterfly. I glued a little twine in the top for its antennae.

Thanks for visiting today.

Three-fold card with Share What You Love SDSP and instructions

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another style card that uses the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is available now as part of the early release to customers. Click here to see more!

This is a three fold card, and you can make two cards from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Cut your sheet to 12″ x 6″, then score at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾”. You also need some white card 2¾” x 3¾” and black card 3” x 4” for the front. Ensure you stamp, then mount the layers and only add glue to the back of the card on one side before adding to the centre of your card. You don’t want to glue all the functioning layers together!

As you open the first fold, you then add the next sentiment and so on.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2

I used the 2″ circle punch and the starburst punch which is the perfect size to layer. The sentiments are from the coordinating Love What You Do stamp set.

Share What You Love Suite 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 3

The sentiment on the back of the card is from the Picture Perfect Birthday set which is going to carryover into the new annual catalogue!

I just adore the pearly shine on this DSP, so I actually added a layer on the back for where I will write my birthday message.

Love What You Do & Share What You Love Designer Paper cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some cards that we made at my craft class on Saturday, where we made 6 cards each!

From 1 sheet of Speciality Designer Series Paper, you can make 8 of these cards. This double sided paper is stunning on both sides, you want to make the most of it, so by making cards in this style, you get to see both sides and enjoy the shimmer it has on the patterns.

I got my inspiration for these from Creating Success with Rhonda Wade on FB, but I changed up the measurements to suit our Australian card format to fit into our C6 envelopes.

Love What You Do &amp; Share What You Love Specialty DSP Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia

Cut the Designer Paper at 5-7/8″ and then cut that piece into 4 equal parts, 3″ wide each so you end up with 4 pieces of 5-7/8″ x 3″. Ensure if there is a design on the paper that is directional, you cut it the correct way and be sure to check the reverse side!

Next, take an A4 sheet of coordinating card stock and place it in your trimmer with the short side to the top and cut it at 5-1/2″. Place that strip to the side for later. Rotate the card 90 degrees and cut at 5-7/8″. Place the 5-1/2″ side to the top of the trimmer or Simply Scored and score at 4-1/8″. Cut a strip of black card measuring 5-7/8″ x 3/4″. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the inside flap of the main card and add the strip of black making sure you line it up straight to show the right amount of black you would like showing. Place the DSP on the card lining it up with the card base on the right had side. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the left side and holding it all firmly in place so it doesn’t move, fold over the card flap and press to seal and there you have your card. Now decorate as you wish. I have used the Starburst punch and the 2″ circle punch and stamped on it.

Here is that same card open to see the reverse side of the paper. How could you stick that to a card and not see it?!!! This is the perfect card style to show it off!

Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

Varied Vases &amp; Stamparatus 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Varied Vases punch lining up by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!
