My card today is a fancy fold design using the Trimming the Town Designer Paper and the Dove of Hope Bundle.

Dove of Hope Bundle

Christmas Dove of Hope Bundle Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Place the Old Olive card in the Trimmer with the 13cm side at the top and score at 2.5cm. Fold this over and burnish with a bone folder. This creates the top of the card.

For the inside of the card, take the Whisper white card and glue the 2 pieces of Designer Paper to each side, then glue to the inside of the card base. Stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.

For the front of the card, place the Poppy Parade piece on the inside in the centre and line it up with the bottom of the card. Holding it carefully in place, add some glue to the top only and fold down the Old Olive flap. Now you can add the Designer Paper (I sponged the edges with Poppy Parade ink).

Trimming the Town DSP

Die cut the pieces of the dove in Whisper White card and glue a small section so the filigree part of the wings sits up a little and is not glued down. Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card. On a small piece of white card, stamp the bauble in Versamark ink, add White Emboss Powder and heat set it. Colour the bauble with Water Painters and ink pads before cutting it out with scissors and gluing it to the card.

Add 3 small rhinestones to the bauble and tie some white ribbon around the top flap and tie in a bow. I placed a glue dot behind the bow to hold it in place.

Measurements:
Old Olive card base – 14.8cm x 13cm
Whisper White card (inside) – 14.3cm x 10cm
Designer Paper (inside) – 10cm x 2.5cm (2 pieces)
Poppy Parade card – 10.3cm x 9.5cm
Designer Paper (front) – 9cm x 7.2cm

Cherish the Season in 2020

Oh how I love these Christmas bells!!! The Cherish the Season Bundle includes the Cherish the Season stamp set and coordinating Sounds of the Season dies. Purchase as a bundle saves you 10%.

My background paper is from the 2020-2022 In Colour 6×6 paper pack with a white Stitched Rectangle die cut placed in the centre. The bells are two different sizes; the centre one is slightly larger than the other two. Once these were die cut, I added a little bit of Adhesive sheet to the back to place the holly and berries.

Cherish the Season Christmas Bells Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

I cut the bells again in Just Jade card and Magenta Madness card, so I could remove the holly and berries and glue them into the silver foil bells. The two smaller bells are adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue and the larger centre bell is adhered to the card with dimensionsls

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool, before fussy cutting and adding it with Mini Dimensionals. Three bows are tied in Misty Moonlight Ribbon and adhered with Mulitpurpose Adhesive Glue. To finish off I added a few Blue Gems, which are stunning!

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.

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.

Peony Peek-a-boo card

Today I have created a fancy fold card using the Prized Peony Suite. These stunningly soft colour tones are so feminine and appealing to the eye, especially with the vellum square doilies for added texture.

I coloured the blooms with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Petal Pink and Old Olive.

3D Waves for a Whale of a Time

Having lived in Warrnambool many years ago, I have fond memories of heading out to Logan’s beach to see the whales between May – September each year. There is now a much bigger and better viewing platform as it has become quite a tourist destination.

So my card today was inspired from my childhood memories.

Whale Waves card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The designer paper pack has this full page of waves, but I cut along two lots of the waves to give me a 3D effect and for the whales to look like they are actually in the water. Placing dimensionals or foam adhesive sheets behind the layers, helps create this.

These whales were punched with the Whale Builder Punch from another sheet of the designer paper. I love how the punches can cut out images directly from the paper!

The only stamping was the fish and I haven’t added a sentiment, as I am waiting for the right occasion before doing that!

Colour Creations Showcase – Calypso Coral

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Calypso Coral!

I love the Whale of a Time Bundle and on this card, I have teamed it up with the High Tide & Well Said stamp sets and the Well Written Dies!

I used the Rock n Roll technique to stamp the whale on whisper white card before cutting it out with the Whale builder punch. The other image were stamped on the Nested Stitched Label die cut and the whale added with dimensionals!

Calypso Coral CCS Card using Whale of a Time & High Tide stamps by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

To create the background, I used the “light beam” stamp from the High Tide stamp set and repeatedly stamped in different colours, cleaning the stamp quickly on the Simply Shammy between colours.

Whale Wobble card

I just love how quickly this card came together!

Predominantly using the patterned paper, this is the main feature of this card, with very little stamping. In fact, the only stamping is the sentiments, fish and a little bit on the anchor!

Whale Wobble card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Whale Builder punch was used to punch out the whale from a piece of the patterned paper and a wobble element was placed behind it to create the 3D effect. Click here to see the whale wobbling!

I also used the Smooth Sailing dies to cut some extra seaweed/plants to add to the scene and the Brass Foil anchor.

Decorating the inside with some more designer paper, seaweed die cuts and a sentiment completes the card!

Forever Fern with the Baby Wipe Technique

AWHT Creative Showcase

The Art With Heart Team are back with another Creative Showcase, this time featuring different colouring techniques. The Stampin’ Up! range contains a bevy of functional and effective colouring tools; Blends Markers, Water Painters, Inks, Daubers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers and more. Enjoy the amazing projects our team members have to share with you, demonstrating these products.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight I am sharing the baby wipe technique featuring the Forever Fern Bundle. To get started setting up your technique, you will need a couple of baby wipes folded in half on a plate. Take your chosen ink refill bottles, and place a few drops of each colour randomly so you have different colours next to each other, leaving a little space between the colours so they can spread and merge. This is now your inkpad, stamp your image right into the baby wipes. When using this technique, you want to make the most of the ink, so expect to make loads of projects with stamped images from the one batch. I stamped lots of sheets of A4 Shimmery White card to make the most of it!

Bumblebee Jade Magenta

I stamped the background with the one image. The foliage behind the sentiment is stamped in Just Jade ink and die cut and another of the leaf images stamped the same way as the background.

How gorgeous does that sentiment look in all those pretty merged colours?!

My next card I used the inlay technique. The foliage is stamped using the baby wipe technique and then the Just Jade layer is die cut with only the dies randomly placed before being embossed with the Greenery embossing folder. This is glued to the Magenta Madness layer and then the foliage glued inside! The sentiment is stamped on white card and die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies.

The gold hoop embellishment is added and some more foliage is die cut out of card stock and popped up on dimensionals on the edge of the hoop. To finish off I added a bumblebee gingham bow, In Color Enamel dots and some of the gold thread.

My final card tonight is my favourite. I love the background image in these colours. It is a more delicate leaf image and very feminine.

The Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack has this gold thread and when you cut it in small pieces, it unravels and you get these delicate threads. I placed them behind the die cut images for a softer look.

Of course, with some left over images, I added these die cuts to the inside of each card!

Colour Creations Showcase – Cajun Craze

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cajun Craze, a real deep rusty brown colour!

I will admit it right now, it is my least favourite colour in the Stampin’ Up! range, but when used in small doses, it can be effective!

Tonight’s card features Cajun Craze, Pool Party and Whisper White.

The Pool Party card base is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The next layer is die cut with the Ornate Layers Dies and white layer is cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Arrange a Wreath Bundle for Crajun Craze Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The wreath stamp is inked up with Cajun Craze ink and I stamped this onto scrap paper before onto my card layer. This is called stamping off or 2nd generation stamping. The full colour was just too dark for what I was wanting.

To create the die cut wreath, I first took a clear block, placed some Cajun Craze ink on it and a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint. Using the Water Painter, add some water and mix the ink & paint together and brush it across a piece of white card. Once dry, cut the wreath and glue it on top of the stamped wreath. Cut the edges off from around the overhanging edges. Glue the white layer to the Pool Party layer and add the sentiment in 2nd generation stamping. These layers are added to the card base with dimensionals.

Die cut the small and large flowers and glue them to the front and inside card. Place a  Champagne Rhinestone in the centre of each flower and add a pretty Pool Party Sheer ribbon bow.

Some Wink of Stella is added to the flowers on the front of the card and also to the sentiment.

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight &amp; Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.
