Soft Suede Blog Hop ~ Two different techniques using the Stamparatus!

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 46 – Soft Suede

Tonight I have two cards for you, both using the Stamparatus to show you how wonderful this product is and if you like things perfect, this is the tool for you!

Card 1 – is a masculine card using For The Record stamp set. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Soft Suede which has two sentiments stamped down the right side using the Stamparatus and the hinged stamping technique. This means you stamp once, move the acrylic plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat to have a uniform pattern. I stamped these in Soft Suede and Memento Black inks.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022.

The record image is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card. I added Clear Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles dies. I added a few Dimensionals to the back of the record but didn’t take off the Dimensional backings. Leave them on so the record spins. I pierced a hole through the centre of the record and the Suede layer using the Take Your Pick Tool and added a brad, gently closing it at the back. These layers are added to the card base with Dimensionals. Now the record spins!!!

The heart is Real Red card and cut using the Give It a Whirl dies and added to the brad with a glue dot.

On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and partially stamped the record three times across the bottom in Soft Suede ink.

Card 2 – uses the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies.

My card base is Thick Basic White with layers of Soft Suede and Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP. The stamped top layer is created using the Stamparatus and the Wreath Builder technique or Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique. The cookie outline is Soft Suede ink and the solid fill image is Crumb Cake ink. It reminds me of a plate of cookies sitting on a marble benchtop 🙂

You can see the die cut word ‘cookies’ has a 3D raised look – I applied an Adhesive Foam Sheet to the back of the Soft Suede layer and die cut this word in the centre, before gluing the white stamped layer on top to cover it up! This also gave this top section some extra depth.

Irresistible Fancy Z-Fold card

Today’s card is an irresistible Z-fold design using the gorgeous Misty Moonlight cardstock (which is retiring on 2 May). I am really sad about this, but we need to look at the positives and to the 5 new colours we will gain with the new Annual catalogue. The patterned paper is the Heart & Home 12×12 DSP and the image is from the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home stamp set and Flowers of Home dies).

Blessings of Home Z Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 closed

This entire card uses only 1 sheet of A4 Misty Moonlight cardstock. I share all the Metric measurements at the end of this post so you can make one too!

The image is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and then I coloured the image using my Wink of Stella and the following ink pads; Bumblebee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. It is really hard to photograph the glimmer this gives, but by using the Wink of Stella like a paint brush to gently add colour directly from the inkpad, gives the entire image a glorious shine!

New 2022-2024 In Colors

It’s the Anzac Day public holiday meaning a long weekend here in Victoria, and my hubby has gone to the footy, so I’ve had an extra day to play with the new In Colors!!!  Have you seen them yet? Let me introduce you to them:

2022-2024 In Colors

What do you think? Do you have a favourite colour? I fell in love with Orchid Oasis initially, but now I have them all together on one card, it is hard to choose a favourite, they are all stunning and coordinate so well together!

So here they are, all on one card – Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Tahitian Tide for the rainbow and the background DSP and stamped sentiment (On the Horizon stamp set) is the Starry Sky! This 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP pack has some great new patterns too. Even the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots match perfectly (see them at the top of each rainbow colour).

The clouds are cut using the Cloud Punch with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. This paper is amazing and the photos don’t do it justice, it is so sparkly!!!!

Now that I’ve seen the cardstock colours, here they are stamped on the inside in each of the ink colours! Aren’t they bright and happy?!!!

Six cards inspired by my recent holiday!

Today’s cards are inspired by my recent week long holiday to Phillip Island. It was great to get away from the city and enjoy the slower pace of seaside living, sound of the ocean and fresh air!

When I got home after not taking any craft with me, I was inspired to get creating. So are you ready to see my projects?!!!

Here are some of the items; Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves dies, Waves of the Ocean Designer 12×12 Papers, 12×12 Blue Foil Specialty Pack, and the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. The stamp and die bundle will be in the new Annual catalogue released on 3 May, however the other items are limited and available until 3 May if not sold out prior.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

I have also used the Paradise Palms Bundle (Paradise Palms stamp set and Palms dies).

PARADISE PALMS BUNDLE 157719

Card 1 – a simple design with some DSP, then a ring/circle of the Blue Foil cut using the new Stylish Shapes dies #159183 (available 3 May) and popped up on Foam Adhesive Strips. The wave is cut in Basic White card and adhered behind the circle.

Soft Sea Foam Blog Hop ~ Interactive Pansy Patch

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 45 – Soft Sea Foam

Tonight’s card features the Pansy Petals DSP, Pansy Patch Bundle and the Give It a Whirl dies.

My card base is Soft Sea Foam (tent fold design). The top layer is two pieces of the Pansy Petals DSP. I placed them in my Cut & Emboss Machine and placed the large die over the top to work out where the join would be in the centre. After die cutting this large piece, I then used the circle piece from the dies to cut the window.

Turning the scallop circle mechanism (where you see the arrow), turns to feature other stamped images! Starting with the happy birthday sentiment, then next is a flower ready to bloom.

Then rotate again, you have this gorgeous pansy. The stems and leaves are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and the petals are Fresh Freesia (1st an 2nd generation stamping). The DSP layer is adhered with Dimensionals to allow space behind for the mechanism to turn. I added a small strip of Soft Sea Foam card across the centre join of the DSPs for a neater look.

Here you can see the mechanism better. The brad which the mechanism spins on, is hidden behind the scallop circle on the front (behind the Brushed Brass Butterfly). This is popped up on Mini Dimensionals.

I finished with adding three Brushed Brass Butterflies and three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

So Saffron Blog Hop ~ Pierced Daisies

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 44 – So Saffron

As a child growing up in Tasmania, I loved making daisy chains and this memory was my inspiration for tonight’s card featuring many retiring products from the 2021-22 Annual catalogue. The Pierced Blooms dies have been an absolute favourite of mine and I know I will be keeping these forever!

Some of the other products used are the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) and the Tasteful Textiles TIEF, Timeless Tulips stamp set (sentiment) and the Ornate Layers dies. Misty Moonlight is one of the In Colors that will also be retiring, but how beautiful does it look with So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Basic White?!!!

Daisy card using Pierced Blooms, ornate frames, ornate floral, tasteful textiles by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2022

I stamped the sentiment multiple times (stamped twice before reinking) down the left side of the white panel before embossing it with the Tasteful Textile 3D TIEF. The Misty Moonlight layer is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF.

I stamped the sentiment again on a small offcut of white card and layered it with Misty Moonlight and popped it up on two Dimensionals with a little piece of the Cotton Ribbon Trim behind. Four of the daisies are popped up on Dimensionals and the other two adhered with liquid glue directly to the card.

Smoky Slate Blog Hop ~ Double Pop Up Gatefold card

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 43 – Smoky Slate

Tonight’s fancy fold design has been around for a while now, and I’ve finally had a go creating one! I am using the What’s Cookin’ Bundle (soon to retire 😢) so if you want it buy it, be sure to do so asap.

Double Pop Up Gatefold card using Stampin Up What's Cookin by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

I started with a Smoky Slate card base for my Double Pop Up Gatefold design. Now that my card has a baking theme, and it is something I love doing with my girls, I thought it appropriate to use the heart pattern (Sweet Talk designer paper) from the 2022 Jan-June Mini catalogue. Real Red is one of the colours in these papers, so that is what I have used for my matt layers.

Firstly, I folded and glued the mechanisms into the card, one at top left and one at bottom right.

Double Pop Up Gatefold card using Stampin Up What's Cookin by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022 mechanism

Once I had all the cardstock layers cut (you can find the measurements below), I stamped the images in Smoky Slate and Real Red ink and die cut some out with the coordinating Cookin’ dies, before gluing all the layers together and placing them onto my card.

I love how these stamps have that distinctive look to them!

Shaded Spruce Blog Hop ~ Paradise Palms Fancy Fold card

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 42 – Shaded Spruce

Tonight’s Pillar Pop Up fancy fold card is fast becoming my favourite! You may have seen my other version on 14 March using Waves of the Ocean.

This is a standard A5 card, but it has a layer at the front reminding me of a diorama, sitting up on two pillars which fold flat for the card to fit into our C6 envelopes.

Paradise Palms Pillar Pop Up Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022, fancy fold

My card base is Shaded Spruce 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Shaded Spruce frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding the palm tree in front and the grass behind. I also stamped and cut out the trio of palms to glue to the inside.

There are two of these pillars at either end behind the front frame, which are created with the same DSP. These allow the frame to sit flat, leaning to the left or the right.

The New Horizons Designer Paper was the perfect choice with the Paradise Palms Bundle.

Sahara Sand Blog Hop ~ For the Record, who loves donuts?!!!

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 41 – Sahara Sand

Tonight’s sweet donut card is made using the For The Record stamp set. I stamped the record in Sahara Sand ink onto the same colour card and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. I cut a second circle the same size for the icing. I used snips to fussy cut the edges to create a more natural icing then stamped the sprinkles from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I used the ‘O’ from the Playful Alphabet dies to cut out the centre. I used the Stitched with Whimsy dies on the card base, running it through the Cut & Emboss Machine, then used my Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw over the marks to create faux stitching!

For the Record Donut and FAux Stitching by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I stamped the sentiments in Sahara Sand ink onto Basic White card and used my paper snips to cut the banners on each end. These were popped up on Dimensionals. Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels are added to finish it off.
