Vine Design card with a handy tip for your die cut sentiments

This Vine Design bundle is rather cute and I’m glad I purchased it recently.

I used some of the Paper Blooms DSP (free during Saleabration with qualifying order – ends tonight) as the background. I die cut the leaves in Night of Navy cardstock and stamped 8 of the flowers in Night of Navy ink onto Rococo Rose card, then die cut them out.

The sentiment is stamped in Rococo Rose ink and die cut. Can you see that extra embossed edge around the sentiment? I share my handy tip below:

The sentiment and flowers are popped up on dimensionals and placed some retired metallic pearls in the centres of each flower. The Butterfly Gems are super pretty and I had to add a few of them too!

Art Gallery and Gilded Leafing for faux scrappy strip technique

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 37 – Pretty Peacock

These projects tonight use the Art Gallery bundle and some of the coordinating products from the suite.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 1

The Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is so pretty and I really wanted to use some but wasn’t sure where to start. I layered it over some of the Fine Art Floral DSP, but this is the reverse side that was less patterned so the gold of the acetate really shines. I cut the acetate to the same size as the DSP.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia sq

The flower is stamped in So Saffron ink and then Versamark for the second layer, heat and stick powder added, melted gently with the heat tool and then the Gilded Leafing added. I have started using a sponge dauber to rub off the excess gold leafing, as I found the oils in my fingers were leaving it a little dull. The leaves are stamped off once in Pretty Peacock so it isn’t so dark. Die cut these images with the coordinating dies. Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Add dimensionals on the back of the stamped images.

Place the square vellum doilies at an angle in the centre of the acetate then stick the flower and leaves on. Turn the acetate layer over and place Tear & Tape only behind where the flower and sentiment are, so it’s not visible from the front. Now place the acetate onto the DSP.

Wrap the ribbon around both layers of DSP & Acetate and tie in a bow. Add glue to the back and adhere it to the card base. Finally add some of the Butterfly Gems to finish it off.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

For my next card I have used the Gilded Leafing to simulate the technique many call, scrappy strip. By simply cutting the DSP to size, then placing 4 strips of Tear & Tape at angles down the paper. Take off the backing paper and add the Gilded Leafing. I use a sponge dauber to brush off the excess.

The Double Oval Punch makes it so easy to create a sentiment and matt layer for your cards; one an oval and the other a slightly larger scallop oval in the one punch!

Sympathy card using Stampin Up Painted Poppies by Kate Morgan Australia 2021.

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

The poppy is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Poppy Parade & Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Linen Thread is wrapped around three times the patterned paper layer and tied in a bow, before gluing it to a Basic White Thick cardstock base.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Forever and Always

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is using the Forever & Always Bundle and the coordinating Specialty Paper, Love You Always.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Creations Showcase using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021

I love using black as a background, giving such a dramatic effect with the bright images and layers and the white square scalloped frame, really pops. The Subtle 3D Embossing Folder adds a soft touch of texture.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Showcase 2021 using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan Australia

Inking up a sponge dauber with Magenta Madness, I started in the centre of each flower and swiped the dauber to the outer edge of the petals to get that brushed look. Doesn’t it look amazing?!!!

The centres are sponged with Bumblebee ink and the leaves stamped in Just Jade.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

I stamped some extra flowers and leaves and added them to the inside of the card.

Birthday, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Golden Art Gallery

Oh how I love this Gold Gilded Leafing, it looks stunning on projects and I cannot wait to play some more with it!

Art Gallery Bundle with Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Just look at the texture of the flowers on that Designer Paper – those flowers look like they are painted on with acrylic/oil paint. Well that is because the paper is photographed from an actual painting before being printed!

Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

This card is very simple, letting the patterned paper do all the work. The only stamping is the flower, leaves and sentiment!

The gilded leafing is added last, just before adding the die cut flower to the card with dimensionals.

Fine Art Floral Suite with Gilded Leafing

The Fine Art Floral Suite is stunning and all these gorgeous products coordinate to make your crafting experience more pleasurable.

I love this particular piece of patterned paper, with all the pink tones. I have used the Petal Pink 5/8″ organdy striped ribbon, just a hit of it between the two DSPs.

Fine Art Floral Suite with Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo/Mossy Meadow ink. Then I used Versamark ink, added Heat & Stick Powder and used the Heat Tool to melt it, before applying the Gilded Leafing.

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Flowers, Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Just Want to Say, Happy Birthday!

How pretty is the Flirty Flamingo sentiment die cut on this card?!! So bright and cheery, especially with the daisy!

The Flower and Field patterned paper can be earned for FREE with a $90AUS order during Sale-a-bration (until 28 Feb). This is a gorgeous pack of bright flowery papers with black backgrounds to make the colours really pop.

Daisy with Flower & Field DSP and Art Gallery by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

Initially I cut the Flirty Flamingo sentiment, but it didn’t really pop as much as I would have liked, so I die cut it in black as well and offset them slightly to give that shadow look and it was perfect.

Daisy with Flower & Field DSP and Art Gallery by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

I added a couple of narrow strips of black card either side of the stamped ‘happy birthday’ and a black heart (Dog Builder Punch) in the centre of the daisy.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is simply stunning with the addition of the gold gilded leafing – WOW, this stuff is just to die for!!!

The Art Gallery Bundle has this gorgeous two step stamped flower which I have inked in Pool Party and then the second layer is stamped in Versamark. Add Heat and Stick Powder, shake off the excess, then heat it with a Heat Tool. This melts the powder so you can then add some of the Gilded Leafing flakes. I use my finger to rub it around over all the sticky powder. I find this the most effective way of adding it efficiently. A little tip with the Gilded Leafing – do not use when you have a fan on, the windows open if it’s breezy outside or it you are about to sneeze. Ask me how I know, LOL. It is so light, it flies everywhere!!!

Art Gallery Bundle and Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment is from the Many Messages Bundle – a wonderful stamp set (all sentiments on 1 stamp) and the die cuts out each one individually in one pass on the Cut & Emboss Machine! Use your Stamparatus to ink up the stamp for a perfect impression.

The stem is inked in Just Jade ink to coordinate with the Gingham Ribbon, part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

The gorgeous floral patterned paper is one of the items you can choose for FREE with a $90+ order. This 12″x12″ paper is called Flower & Field, and check out the other patterns in the pack!

Flower & Field paper is glorious

Love You Always with Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021.

A Basic Black card base adds to the dramatic and colourful card.

Yes, another of the patterned pieces from the Flower & Field DSP (earn free during Saleabration 2021). This one really does remind me of a lovely field of flowers, and I chose the Poppy Parade card to add some stamped images, finished off with Gilded Leafing!

The DSP is glued to the Bumblebee matt layer before some of the Bumblebee Ribbon is tied around the layers. A double bow of Bumblebee ribbon and the Gingham ribbon is added. This layer is then glue to the card front.

Love You Always with Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

To apply the Gilded Leafing, I stamped the floral images using Versamark ink, added Heat & Stick Powder, shook off the excess before melting the powder with my Heat Tool. Add some Gilded Leafing Flakes over the now sticky Versamark and rub it around with your fingers. Many people use a paint brush, but I find my fingers get a much better effect! Die cut the images and add them to the card with Glue.

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.

Week 31 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card is using some of the new Jan-Jun Mini catalogue products, the Forever & Always Bundle!

Old Olive – Rococo Rose – Whisper White

Elegant Love You Always for Old Olive Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

My card base is Rococo Rose with a matt layer of Old Olive. I cut a strip of Love You Always Specialty DSP and the same in the True Love DSP (coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers). These were adhered to the Old Olive layer and some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon attached at the join using Tear & Tape. The ribbon is folded over the edges and behind the Olive layer. Now this is glued to the card base. I tied a ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots.

The ‘Love’ is die cut in Old Olive card and Whisper White card for the finer layer, adhered with Multipurpose Glue.
