Blog Hop: In Colours 2018-2021

Blog Hop InColour

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring In Colour theme. Check out the new 2019-2021 In Colours and lets not forget the current 2018-2020 In Colours.

If you would like a copy of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Ros Davidson. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbook page and each of the daisies [Daisy Lane stamp set] in one of the 10 current In Colours. I kept this page very simple in design as I wanted the colours to shine through. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder applied and heat set. I cut it in half with scissors, so I had an even balance above and below the photo. The centres of the daisies is silver glimmer paper and I love that sparkle!

My next project is a card using the Wonderful Moments stamp set and the Mosaic Mood DSP and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the image in Soft Suede as it’s not as harsh as the black ink which most people stamp images with.

Tip: when using Stampin’ Blends markers (alcohol markers) you can actually stamp your images using any of the Stampin’ Up! Classic inks (water based).

This card uses Terracotta Tile as the base and this colour is also in the Mosaic Mood designer papers. Did you see the scallop shaped DSP on the right? I cut around the scallop edge with Paper Snips for extra detail.

The Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers used are: Mint Macaron, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler.

My last project uses the Bird Ballad stamp set, Woven Threads designer series paper and the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing folder. The Frame is the new Seaside Spray card with a strip of Rococo Rose card behind layered with some Very Vanilla Scallop Lace Trim.

The birds are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and some Wink of Stella applied to the chest of each bird for added sparkle.

Mosaic Mood Masterpiece

When we were in New Zealand for the Stampin’ Up! conference, OnStage Live in April, this Specialty Designer Series paper, Mosaic Mood was an all attendee give-a-way and wow, you need to see it to appreciate its beauty. It has shiny accents just like mosaic tiles and it’s super pretty.

I was so tired the other night, I had no brain power to think about stamping and designing a card, so I at down and cut up 2 of the sheets of the Mosaic Mood paper into all the flowers, butterflies and hummingbirds to use later when I was ready and this is what I came up with.

Mosaic Mood & Woven Heirlooms Birthday card, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan

I embossed the Blushing Bride base card front with the Subtles Dynamic TIEF and then die cut the window with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies in Very Vanilla cardstock. I glued the flower image to the centre of the card and placed the frame over the top with Foam Adhesive Strips for height.

I stamped the sentiments in the new Terracotta Tile ink as it coordinates with this DSP!

I placed some more flowers that were cut from the edges of the paper and placed them in the corner. Make sure you don’t waste them by throwing them out, thinking they are not complete images, they are perfect for this reason!!!

Dear Crafters,

Look what I’ve done to mine ~ added a few tabs so I can find the section I want quickly and easily to save me time. These are created with the Circle Tab punch and a computer to print the file!

2018-2019 Annual Stampin Up Catalogue tabs.JPG

With all the excitement of the new catalogue, today I want to share some cards with a handy tip on using the new Pearl Doilies.

This card below looks like it uses a doily behind the circle sentiment, doesn’t it?!!

Share What You Love & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Well, it does, but I have actually cut out the centre of it before adding the sentiment to the card, because it would be a waste to actually use the entire doily and cover most of it up, right?

Share What You Love DSP & Make a Difference by Kate Morgan, Australia

Check out this card! Yes, it is that inside part of the doily above, so we were able to get 2 cards from the one doily!!!

Now, I also promised to share how I made this sentiment with the Make a Difference stamp set and the Stamparatus. Click here for the written tutorial!

Love What You Do & Share What You Love Designer Paper cards

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some cards that we made at my craft class on Saturday, where we made 6 cards each!

From 1 sheet of Speciality Designer Series Paper, you can make 8 of these cards. This double sided paper is stunning on both sides, you want to make the most of it, so by making cards in this style, you get to see both sides and enjoy the shimmer it has on the patterns.

I got my inspiration for these from Creating Success with Rhonda Wade on FB, but I changed up the measurements to suit our Australian card format to fit into our C6 envelopes.

Love What You Do &amp; Share What You Love Specialty DSP Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia

Cut the Designer Paper at 5-7/8″ and then cut that piece into 4 equal parts, 3″ wide each so you end up with 4 pieces of 5-7/8″ x 3″. Ensure if there is a design on the paper that is directional, you cut it the correct way and be sure to check the reverse side!

Next, take an A4 sheet of coordinating card stock and place it in your trimmer with the short side to the top and cut it at 5-1/2″. Place that strip to the side for later. Rotate the card 90 degrees and cut at 5-7/8″. Place the 5-1/2″ side to the top of the trimmer or Simply Scored and score at 4-1/8″. Cut a strip of black card measuring 5-7/8″ x 3/4″. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the inside flap of the main card and add the strip of black making sure you line it up straight to show the right amount of black you would like showing. Place the DSP on the card lining it up with the card base on the right had side. Add a strip of Tear & Tape down the left side and holding it all firmly in place so it doesn’t move, fold over the card flap and press to seal and there you have your card. Now decorate as you wish. I have used the Starburst punch and the 2″ circle punch and stamped on it.

Here is that same card open to see the reverse side of the paper. How could you stick that to a card and not see it?!!! This is the perfect card style to show it off!

Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

Varied Vases &amp; Stamparatus 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Varied Vases punch lining up by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!

The vase was stamped off once with the Blueberry Bushel ink to get that lighter look!

Stamparatus Storage for your craft desk

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a project that I have created to store my brand new Stamparatus in while it sits on my craft desk!!!

Yes, I got mine early in the first release, but never fear, it will soon be in the upcoming Annual catalogue to purchase. When you see it in action, believe me, it will be at the top of your shopping list. It is awesome!

Stamparatus storage using Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstator, Australia.

The Designer paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack and I hadn’t used it as the print is very bold and large, but I do actually like it and think it is a very happy design and makes me smile. So what better way to use it, than cover this box/storage for my Stamparatus. I just cut down the box that it came in, and covered it with the DSP.

Here is the back with the stand I made out of some of the cardboard backings which come with the foil sheets! Waste not, want not!!!

I cut it down to 6″ x 6″ and then scored one side at 2½” & 3½”. Using a pencil, I marked ½” from each scoreline.

Then I rotated 90 degrees and marked 1″ at the opposite end with a pencil on the top and bottom. From this mark to the v” mark cut both sides so you end up with a triangle type shape. Place the largest of the Lots of Labels framelits dies 2½” from the top, lining it up inside the centre of the scorelines. Place it in the Big Shot, but don’t run it all the way through, just about 1½” or so. Where you stop cutting with the framelit, use scissors to cut to the scorelines on each side, then you can fold on the scorelines and glue together.

Not sure if this makes sense, but you can probably see what I mean from the picture below.

Christmas Scrapbooking

Dear Crafters,

Well, it’s almost Christmas…. only 2 more sleeps until Santa arrives! Who is excited?!!

Today I have my completed scrapbooking pages that I had started and shared with you back in October. You can see that post here.

I have added my photos of my girls making our gingerbread, which has become our family tradition at the beginning of December each year.

Did you also notice the mini calendar? Well, there’s a story behind that!

Each year, I purchase about 25 of these mini calendars to make Calendar Easel Cards and I always have one or two left over. So this year, I have incorporated the individual pages into my scrapbooking pages!!!!

A great idea to use them up without feeling guilty throwing them in the bin. Just circle the date the photos were taken for a quick and fun way to add a date to your page.

And here is another page, this time celebrating my daughter receiving her Green Certificate at swimming, which took over 12 months to achieve. We didn’t think we would ever see this day, so certainly a memorable moment to scrapbook!

What do you think of this neat idea to use up those mini calendars?

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas and I’ll be back on Monday with some new products!!!!

Handy Tips

Handy Tip to save cardstock

Today’s Tip:

I have a cool tip for you this week!

Imagine this….. You plan on making a card and you take out a certain colour from your scrap pile. You have a perfectly sized piece of card stock…….but oh no, it has a circle shape already punched out of it.

Tuesday Tip

See the photo above…..I have a perfectly sized layer I would like to use on my card front, but it has a Circle punched out of it. Why wouldn’t you be able to use this? Keep scrolling….

Tuesday Tip

I layered my Designer paper over a Primrose Petals card front and then….

Tuesday Tip

I covered it with another larger scallop circle punch. Hang on, where did the circle punch hole go? It is hidden under the top punch layer! Would anyone ever know?………No. This is a great way to save some card stock.

Another tip….before you glue all your layers together when setting up your card, if you decide you are going to use a sentiment and a punch, punch that sentiment layer out of one of your layers so it’s hidden and then glue your layers in place!

Handy Tip     Handy Tip

I ended up using this card as a birthday card and not a get well card which I had stamped sentiment for, so I flipped it over and stamped again. Another example of never wasting any card!

And this is what I came up with!

Papillon Potpourri     Papillon Potpourri

Tada! No wasting precious cardstock!!!!

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s handy tip.
