Night of Navy Blog Hop: Amazing Silhouettes

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 31 – Night of Navy

Tonight I am using the new Amazing Silhouettes Bundle [Amazing Silhouettes stamp set & Amazing Thanks dies].

My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of the Sweet Symmetry DSP from the Annual catalogue. Using the Stamparatus, I inked up the stamp with Pool Party ink and stamped onto Basic White card. I repeated the inking and stamping process to get a slightly darker image. I used a sponge dauber with the same ink around the edges of the white panel.

I took one of the Heart & Home Doilies and cut it in half and placed them either side so they met the edge of the card base with glue, before adding some ribbon and adhering the white panel with dimensionals.

I took the Amazing Thanks die and cut the background in Night of Navy card and the top layer in the Iridescent Pool Party piece of Supple Shimmer Specialty DSP. Glue them together with Multipurpose Glue or use the Adhesive Sheets before die cutting to turn them into a sticker. I like to use glue to allow me a little wriggle room in getting it into place. Doesn’t it look gorgeous and sparkly?!!! Finally, I added some of the Brushed Brass Butterflies, because I adore them and I am using them on so many project, my favourite embellishments and you get 80 in a pack!

On the inside I stamped one of  the smaller images from the set in the bottom right corner.

Bouquet of Love

Tonight’s focus is on the amazing Bouquet of Love Hybrid Folder which also includes a heart die and sits inside the folder to cut at the same time as embossing the cardstock!!! Yes, it is amazing!

This first card is very dramatic – it started off being a Blushing Bride card, but I found it a little underwhelming. I placed the embossed piece back into the folder and inked the opposite side of the folder with Black Memento ink. Carefully, I closed the folder and ran it back through my machine and wow, what a result. I wanted it a little darker though, so repeated the process and here is the result.

I glued it to a layer of Basic Black card, which is how I got that black heart in the centre. Then I glued it to the Blushing Bride card. Next I added the gingham ribbon bow, die cut the flowers/leaves and stamped a sentiment. These were all added with Mutipurpose Glue and the ribbon with a Glue Dot. Oops, I just realised that one of the Irridescent Rhinestone Jewels has fallen off the larger flower.

On the inside, I added a white panel and simply glued the heart to the centre which was the piece that cut out in the first run through the die cutting & embossing machine.

This next card is just simply embossed and die cut and then I placed a piece of the Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP behind the heart. Then I mount this onto a piece of Blushing Bride card. I added a small piece of white ribbon from the top of the heart snd up over the top of the card and adhered it behind before gluing onto the Thick Basic White card base.

I tied a bow with the same ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. Basic Rhinestone Jewels were the last to be added to finish it off with a bit of bling! The inside was decorated the same as the previous card. I deliberately left a sentiment off this card, as it could be used for so many different occasions from Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday to Mother’s Day!

Mossy Meadow Blog Hop: Daffodil Daydream

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 30 – Mossy Meadow

Tonight as we enter the new 2022 year, we are returning to continue our Stampin’ Up! colours with Mossy Meadow.  As the new January – June Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration began yesterday, this Daffodil Daydream Bundle is one that will surely be popular!

Daffodil Daydream card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

My card base is Basic White with a layer of the Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP, then a layer of the Vellum Layering Designs that come in 12″ x 12″ sheets. The daffodil image is placed in the Stamparatus and I used my Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight & Mossy Meadow) direct to the red rubber image. You can repeat this process to get the desired colour and if you have missed any section of the image. To colour the centre of the image, I used the Wink of Stella with Mossy Meadow ink for the leaves and Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blends Combo packs for the flowers.

The image is die cut using the coordinating dies and popped up on Dimensionals. I die cut a smal butterfly in Mossy Meadow card and lifted the wings with my fingers so it looks as though it is fluttering. A Gold Shimmer Ribbon bow is added with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

On the inside, I simply added the small offcut of DSP from the front layer. I just love how this Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP is almost the perfect size for our card layers!

Tulip Fields Birthday card

Today I have a gorgeous field of tulips on my card that I think will be extremely popular when the new January – June Mini catalogue becomes available on 4 January! During the first couple of months, Saleabration will also begin where you can earn FREE items with any $90+ product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

How amazing is this field of tulips card?!!! The clouds are actually some of the Simply Marbleous DSP that is one of the free items you can choose during Saleabration. If you purchase the Tulip Fields Bundle and the Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments, you can get this DSP FREE!

The rows of tulips are stamped in Pale Papaya, Fresh Freshia and Polished Pink and cut with my Trimmer. I glued these to some Crumb Cake card and then cut it down to 7cm x 13.5cm to fit on the card front (10.5cm x 27cm, scored at 13.5cm), leaving a small gap at the bottom to create the illusion of a bike path.

Tulip Fields birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is actually from another new set which is part of the Flowering Fields Suite, called Flowering Tulips. The full sentiment is stamped on the inside of the card, which you can see below, but I wanted to say happy birthday on the front, rather than happier birthday, so I carefully inked up the first part of the sentiment to happ and stamped it onto white card. Then I cleaned the stamp well with my Simply Shammy and inked up the ‘y’ only from the word birthday and because they are clear photopolymer stamps, I could see through it to place it closely to the happ to create happy!!! Once I stamped the full image again, I fussy cut each word with paper snips, before adding with dimensionals to the card.

The fence and bike are die cut from Early Espresso card and adhered with Multipurpose Glue. How pretty are those Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments which are self-adhesive to make them even easier to use!

This is the inside of the card where the full sentiment is stamped and the windmill and trees are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

Otterly Awesome

Today I want to share one of the cutest stamp sets that will be availableto earn for FREE from 4th January 2022 during Saleabration with a $90 product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

Awesome Otters is a cling set of 6 stamps; 4 images and 2 sentiments. I have also used another SAB item in the patterned paper, Simply Marbellous 6″ x 6″ DSP. It was perfect for the water effect I wanted on this card!

Awesome Otters card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The Picture This die was used to die cut the circles. I sat it over the white base card to work out where to stamp the otters. Once I had stamped and coloured them (Watercolor Pencils & Blender Pen), I glued the DSP to the card front. The smaller circles I replaced but on a dimensional rather than gluing.

Aren’t they otterly adorable?!!!

On the inside, I stamped and coloured another adorable otter and placed a strip of DSP down one side.
