Art Gallery and Gilded Leafing for faux scrappy strip technique

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 37 – Pretty Peacock

These projects tonight use the Art Gallery bundle and some of the coordinating products from the suite.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 1

The Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is so pretty and I really wanted to use some but wasn’t sure where to start. I layered it over some of the Fine Art Floral DSP, but this is the reverse side that was less patterned so the gold of the acetate really shines. I cut the acetate to the same size as the DSP.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia sq

The flower is stamped in So Saffron ink and then Versamark for the second layer, heat and stick powder added, melted gently with the heat tool and then the Gilded Leafing added. I have started using a sponge dauber to rub off the excess gold leafing, as I found the oils in my fingers were leaving it a little dull. The leaves are stamped off once in Pretty Peacock so it isn’t so dark. Die cut these images with the coordinating dies. Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Add dimensionals on the back of the stamped images.

Place the square vellum doilies at an angle in the centre of the acetate then stick the flower and leaves on. Turn the acetate layer over and place Tear & Tape only behind where the flower and sentiment are, so it’s not visible from the front. Now place the acetate onto the DSP.

Wrap the ribbon around both layers of DSP & Acetate and tie in a bow. Add glue to the back and adhere it to the card base. Finally add some of the Butterfly Gems to finish it off.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

For my next card I have used the Gilded Leafing to simulate the technique many call, scrappy strip. By simply cutting the DSP to size, then placing 4 strips of Tear & Tape at angles down the paper. Take off the backing paper and add the Gilded Leafing. I use a sponge dauber to brush off the excess.

The Double Oval Punch makes it so easy to create a sentiment and matt layer for your cards; one an oval and the other a slightly larger scallop oval in the one punch!

Sweet Strawberry SITR card

I’m back with more cards using this gorgeous patterned paper. Make sure you place an order to get it for free (with the stamp set too) with any $180 product order. Sale-a-bration is only on for another week until 28 February, so make sure you place your order to reap the rewards.

Did you see my blueberry card last week? Click here to see it now. This strawberry card is created in the exact same way, but I also dry embossed the stamped wreath layer with the Subtles 3D TIEF for added texture, after I had finished stamping.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia cl

I stamped the strawberry & flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink and the outline in Poppy Parade ink. Granny Apple Green was used for the stem, leaves & sentiment.

I added an extra strip of the patterned paper onto Poppy Parade card, then glued it into the inside.

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!, Watercolour

Watercoloured Hummingbird

Hummingbirds are the most fascinating little birds and this stamp set, A Touch of Ink [155233], free to choose with a $180 product order this month during Sale-a-bration, has these gorgeous images.

My card base is Soft Sea Foam with a layer of Champagne Foil. Another layer of Basic White card is stamped with the flowers image multiple times in the same colour ink. The Blending Brushes were used to add colour of Soft Sea Foam from the top and down the sides of the card. This is a great way to colour without being so precise in just colouring the images alone.

Hummingbird card using Saleabration, A Touch of Ink from Stampin Up Australia 2021 by Kate Morgan

I stamped the bird in Sahara Sand ink and coloured it using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pens. The Layered Circles Dies were used to cut it out and then a matt layer of Champagne Foil in the next size up with the scalloped edge die. This was die cut out of the first layer of the card; so you don’t even notice it when you place the stamped white layer on top!

I added some Wink of Stella to the Hummingbird for that extra glimmer!

Sympathy card using Stampin Up Painted Poppies by Kate Morgan Australia 2021.

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

The poppy is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Poppy Parade & Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Linen Thread is wrapped around three times the patterned paper layer and tied in a bow, before gluing it to a Basic White Thick cardstock base.

Berry Blessings Wreath builder Card

I love the patterned paper that can be earned free during Sale-a-bration 2021 with a $180AUD product order. You also get this stamp set too!!!

I love blueberries and this was the first card I had to make with the Stamp in the Round or Wreath builder technique using the Stamparatus.

Berry Blessings Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia

The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green and the Blueberries are Pacific Point with Night of Navy outline.

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink to coordinate with the matt layers. The Double Oval Punch is a fantastic addition to my craft supplies and I know I will use it heaps, especially when you can cut both ovals at once!

Monthly Creative Showcase: Forever and Always

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is using the Forever & Always Bundle and the coordinating Specialty Paper, Love You Always.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Creations Showcase using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021

I love using black as a background, giving such a dramatic effect with the bright images and layers and the white square scalloped frame, really pops. The Subtle 3D Embossing Folder adds a soft touch of texture.

With Love card for AWH Monthly Showcase 2021 using Stampin Up Forever & Always Bundle by Kate Morgan Australia

Inking up a sponge dauber with Magenta Madness, I started in the centre of each flower and swiped the dauber to the outer edge of the petals to get that brushed look. Doesn’t it look amazing?!!!

The centres are sponged with Bumblebee ink and the leaves stamped in Just Jade.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

I stamped some extra flowers and leaves and added them to the inside of the card.

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.

Golden Art Gallery

Oh how I love this Gold Gilded Leafing, it looks stunning on projects and I cannot wait to play some more with it!

Art Gallery Bundle with Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Just look at the texture of the flowers on that Designer Paper – those flowers look like they are painted on with acrylic/oil paint. Well that is because the paper is photographed from an actual painting before being printed!

Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

This card is very simple, letting the patterned paper do all the work. The only stamping is the flower, leaves and sentiment!

The gilded leafing is added last, just before adding the die cut flower to the card with dimensionals.

Love You, Kangaroo

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 34 – Petal Pink

This is such a pretty, peachy pink tone and I actually quite like it.

So for this card, I first selected one of the sheets from the Subtles 6″x6″ DSP that you can get as part of the joining special at the moment.

I used my snips by opening them up and using one blade to rough up the edges of the patterned paper and fold over the top corner, before gluing it to the Petal Pink card base.

I chose the Kangaroo & Company Bundle next, as I hadn’t inked it up since buying it last year, and it was time to have a play with this cute bundle.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to colour the kangaroo, so I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and dragged the Petal Pink inkpad across it. I watched a Facebook Live recently over @theCraftyCarrotCo where they used this technique. I then stamped the Kangaroo image in Soft Suede ink 3 times, using the Stamparatus to get a nice, deep, rich colour, before die cutting it.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hearts in the pouch are also stamped twice using the Stamparatus in Petal Pink on Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies.

I used Stampin’ Seal+ to add the Square Vellum Doilies, then used Dimensionals behind the kangaroo.

The “love’ and ‘you’ are from the Love You More Than dies, cut in Shimmery White cardstock and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Last, I added three of the Elegant Faceted Gems, then decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. I stamped in Petal Pink first using the Stamparatus, then moved the cardstock slightly, and stamped again in Soft Suede ink, twice. Doesn’t it give a fantastic offset stamping shadow effect?!!! I added a strip on the same patterned paper down the side, that I used on the front of the card.
