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!

Colour Creations Showcase – Pacific Point – Many Messages

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 32 – Pacific Point

The Many Messages stamp set is just that – 19 messages in one stamp!!!

Use the Stamparatus to get the perfect imprint and then cut them all out in one go using the Message Die.

Many Messages Bundle for Pacific Point Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Once you die cut the stamped image, you are left with a negative piece that I keep and place over my card base to use as a template to insert the pieces back onto my card!

Using the die, I also cut some plain white and Pacific Point card, so I had plain die cuts to insert back onto my card. In the next image you can see I placed 3 of the stamped dies first, then placed some of the blue and white ones around it.

Many Messages Bundle by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

I added a few of the sequins from the Whale of a Time Suite with a glue dot for some extra embellishment.

Many Messages Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The background was created with four 2cm strips of DSP and one in Pacific Point card.

The Brights 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper [155228] will be available in the next Annual catalogue (June 2021), but you can get a pack of each of the colour families DSP packs with your starter kit if you join my team during Sale-a-bration on top of the already great value starter kit!

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.

Daisy Flower and Field

Daisy with Flower & Field DSP and Many Messages by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The Flower & Field DSP is one of the free items you can select with any $90+ order until 28 February 2021. It has loads of different patterns on black backgrounds, making the colour really pop!

This particular sheet was perfect for the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch, which I have used the same colour cardstocks to replicate the printed image.

Daisy with Flower & Field DSP and Many Messages by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The Bumblebee Ribbon is wrapped around the Granny Apple Green layer and tied in a bow at the front. The sentiment is one of the Many Messages stamp and I used the Stamparatus to stamp them all as they are 1 stamp, before die cutting them all at one. You get loads of variety in the one stamp to use later on other projects!

Colour Creations Showcase – Old Olive – Love You Always

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 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.

Lastly, I stamped the ‘with’ sentiment in Old Olive ink and added some Basic Pearls.

I love the 2 step stamping of this large flower and using the Stamparatus makes it super easy to line up and get the perfect inked image.

The coordinating dies cut out the images so you can get that perfect border around the edge of the stamped image. The bloom is popped up on dimensionals, as is the sentiment.

Colour Creations Showcase – Night of Navy – Masculine Well Suited Birthday

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 30 – Night of Navy

This is our first colour for 2021, as we continue with the remainder of the SU colour range!

Tonight’s card is very masculine in appearance with some brand new products from the new Jan-Jun Mini catalogue!

The background patterned paper is the Well Suited DSP and the stamp set is called You are Amazing. This is a brilliant stamp set with awesome sentiments for any birthday card.

Masculine Birthday using Well Suited & You are Amazing stamp set by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Layering Squares Dies were the perfect size to cut out the sentiment and the scalloped matt layer. This is popped up on Black Dimensionals. The 3 smaller squares below the sentiment are the very smallest of the scalloped Layering Squares die, and gluing them to create diamonds.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the images, so I could get that perfect even depth of colour. This image below I inked twice, so the Stamparatus is perfect for this technique.

Pampered Pets for Christmas, yay or nay?

The Playful Pets Suite is the perfect product for a card for my dear friend who has her own dog walking business. I had to put a little doggy on her Christmas card!

Pampered Pets for Christmas by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

A card base of Whisper White, stamped with Real Red ink. The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the Cherish the Season stamp set and the rest is from the Pampered Pets stamp set.

The Stitched Stars dies are used to cut some Vellum which is sits behind the focal image.

The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is so cute and the Pets Dies cut out the images from the paper. Yes, this dog is cut directly from the paper!

Mini Dimensionals help pop up the dog die cut.

Finish off with a red bow from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack adhered with a glue dot.

Early Release Quite Curvy Bundle for Christmas

Curvy Classic Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Patterned Paper has some stunning designs, including this pretty one with the sprigs. The Curvy dies has this stunning curved border – one side has the small holes and the other plain. You can use the offcut on another card (see below)!

A card base of Shaded Spruce with a Cherry Cobbler punched 2-1/4″ circle. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, stamped in Shaded Spruce ink, a must have in your craft stash! This is stamped onto Whisper White card and cut out with the Tailed Tag punch.

The sprigs are cut using the Curvy dies, part of the Quite Curvy Bundle. The little bird is stamped in Sahara Sand ink and some Blushing Bride ink added with a Blender Pen. Mini Dimensionals help pop up some of the elements.

This next card looks almost identical, but I have used the ‘other side’ of the curvy die offcut and placed the bird in a slightly different position. Did you notice that?!!!

Finish off with some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a gorgeous sparkle.

Colour Creations Showcase – Mossy Meadow – Basket of Blooms

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 29 – Mossy Meadow

This is our last colour for 2020, but we will continue mid-January 2021 with the remainder of the SU colours, after a much deserved break!

I really struggled coming up with something using Mossy Meadow – I think it is the darkness of it that throws me, but that is the challenge with this showcase. We all have our preferred colours and some we don’t warm to as much, and this is one of mine 😁

When I can’t figure out what to do, I head to the Stampin’ Up! colour coach for ideas and I selected the middle combination: Mossy Meadow – Flirty Flamingo Coastal Cabana

Mossy Meadow

I haven’t created too much with the Basket of Blooms stamp set so I thought that might be a good place to start, seeing as there is foliage for Mossy Meadow! I started by stamping the foliage once, then again without reinking, and instead of using markers to colour it, I used the Blending Brushes to add a softer layer of this dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out. Using the Decorative Mask, I sponged the background and the edges.

Basket of Blooms for CCS Mossy Meadow by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Of course the blooms had to be Flirty Flamingo for that lovely pop of colour and I used the coordinating punch to cut them out. They also have Wink of Stella on them and some faceted gems in the centres.

Basket of Blooms for CCS Mossy Meadow by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020 close up

The pot is stamped in Coastal Cabana on white card and coloured with blending brushes
(coming soon) before being fussy cut. I also sponged the ink behind where the pot would sit for some shading. I splattered Wink of Stella across the Masked Mossy Meadow layer before adding the centre panel. It really gives the card that extra sparkle!
