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.

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.

Feels Like Home Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up SAB Australia 2021

Basic measurements:
Crumb Cake Card: 10.4cm x 14cm & 9cm x 9cm
Crumb Cake Card: 10.5cm x 28cm, scored at 10.5cm & 21cm
Thick White card: 13.5cm x 10cm & 10cm x 10cm
In Good Taste DSP: 10cm x 10cm & 10cm x 6.5cm (2)

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!!!

Glittered Birthday Penguins in Tuxedos

I have more penguins for you, but today they are heading to a birthday!!!

The Penguin Place Bundle is such great value at $54.75 for the Penguin Place stamp set and Penguin Builder punch, and when you spend $90+AUD you can also select the gorgeous Designer Series Paper, Penguin Playmates, which I have used on this card. The dotty panel is die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

HOC Week 5 – Penguin Playmates Peekaboo card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

It’s almost time that the 2021 July-August Mini catalogue is available to purchase from tomorrow, 3rd August 2021, and tonight I have another sneak peek of some new product and free Sale•a•bration items.

The Penguin Place Bundle (#156789) is under $55AUD and has the stamp set and coordinating punch as part of the bundle.

SAB Penguin Playmates DSP Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

The Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (#158420) is one of the items you can select from the Sale•a•bration brochure with any $90+AUD order.

Penguin Playmates DSP JD21

It was one of the first items I selected and with the coordinating Penguin Builder Punch (#156452), you can punch out these little fellas from the paper without having a stamp set – although I did use the Penguin Place (#156410) stamp set for the sentiment! I have also used the Picture This Dies (#155559) which cuts out all these circles in one pass through my dfie cutting machine, for the penguins to peek through! The fox & rabbit were cut from the DSP with the Picture This Dies so they were the same size, but popped up on dimensionals. Behind each penguin head, I placed a dimensional for added depth.

On the inside, I have decorated it with the cute polar bear. See how he is half off the card, well he was fussy cut from the edge of the DSP. Just because he wasn’t a full image, don’t throw them out, you can still use them! Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for some sparkle to finish off.

Week 35 – Pool Party

This birthday card is so much fun, with the donkey kicking up the pile of presents… I can almost hear it laughing!!!

Darling Donkeys Birthday card for Pool Party Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the Darling Donkeys stamp set (FREE product during Saleabration with $90+ order) and the Kangaroo & Company stamp set, where I have used the presents image. I also stamped this image across the background of my card in Pool Party ink.

The donkey and presents are stamped in Memento ink onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus to line them up perfectly, then die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

The images are coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Real Red. The rhinestones are also coloured with the Pool Party Blends to coordinate with the cardstock. The present at the front, is also stamped with little star type images from the Darling Donkeys set.

Elegant Wedding card

Tonight’s card is a Wedding card for my cousin who recently got married. Using the gorgeous Happy Birthday to You stamp set I created this very feminine wedding card. This stamp set can be earned FREE with any $90 order during Sale•a•bration!!!

The embossed background (Parisian Flourish 3D Textured Embossing Folder) adds a touch of elegance for such a special occasion.

The Stitched So Sweetly dies were used to die cut the scallop rectangle in Shimmery White card stock. This gives a gorgeous shimmer to the image when coloured. The image is stamped in Sahara Sand ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Happy Birthday to You Feminine Wedding card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The sentiment is stamped using the Stamparatus with Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool before fussy cutting around it! The Petal Pink 1/4″ (6.4mm) Metallic-edge Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

OnStage 2019 in Sydney

Wow, what a wonderful time I had last weekend in Sydney for OnStage, the Annual event for demonstrators!

I flew up on Friday, leaving cold Melbourne (16 degrees) and arriving in Sydney to 30+ degrees. Thankfully I was picked up by a wonderful team member, Cathy and she drove me back to her home north of Manly. She and her hubby needed to head out for a short time, so I was more than comfortable sitting with her gorgeous dog, Superman, on the back deck over looking the pool with a lovely sea breeze.

OnStage2019 Sydney

Saturday we were up and gone by 7am to head into Darling Harbour to the ICC. The event began and here is our view of the stage with 600+ other demo friends.

OnStage2019 Sydney November

Early on in the morning, we received our new Mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure to ogle over. It sure is an amazing catalogue and our first comments were, after picked our jaws up off the floor, “we are in trouble!”.

During the day, after some of the product demonstrations, we get to create 4 x Make N Takes. Here are a couple of them. The first one uses the Peaceful Poppies Suite, absolutely gorgeous 💗

Another part of attending these events is, we are able to place a Product Purchase Premiere order. A select group of products can be purchased within 3 days of the event for those who attended. Mine arrived late yesterday!!!! Here’s a sneak peek of what I ordered!

Today I can also finally share some of the excitement from the Sydney OnStage event held at Luna Park last Saturday. Here is a photo of Catherine and I at the entrance to Lunda Park and the stunning Ferris Wheel with the Harbour Bridge behind! We had perfect sunny weather for the 2 days we were in Sydney.

We were lucky enough to get a table right up the front and here are a few of us from our Art With Heart Team. We had a fantastic time and loved receiving new product and of course, the brand new annual catalogue!!!!

I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a display stamper and here are my projects!

#onstage2017 display stamper samples by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up demonstrator Australia

A few weeks ago, I received a big brown box with 3 of the new In Colour Ink Pads, 2 stamp sets (Beautiful Bouquet & Paint Play), Lovely Laurel thinlits, ribbons, embellishments, In Colour card stock, Pretty Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack to name a few, to create these projects!

Over the next few months I’ll be able to show you more about my projects and better close up pictures, but what do you think of my display? Did you attended the event in Sydney, and did you see my display?

And here is the view from our hotel room which was absolutely stunning and I just had to share it with you!
