CCBH Basic Gray – Hand-Penned Petals and Floating Butterflies

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 3 – Basic Gray

Tonight I am using the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle for this card, but I am not using the colours in the Designer Paper that coordinates in the suite. I have created my own colour combination and isn’t it super pretty?!!!

Colour Combination - Basic Gray

Card 1 – My card base, first layer and the die cut pieces are all Basic Gray card. The layer has those stripes across it and I created that by scoring every 2cm on my Trimmer with the scoring blade!

Once I had them done, I used the Basic Gray inkpad and ran it around the edges to get that depth of colour.

Hand-Penned Bundle for Basic Gray CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set) in Basic Gray ink and filled in using the other coloured inkpads. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This is fussy cut with Paper Snips and added to the card with dimensionals.

On the inside, I added another stamped image and die cut the top and bottom with that pretty scallop edge die in the same Penned Flowers Dies. To finish off I added some faux resin dots in coordinating colours that I made using a hole punch and Fine Tip Glue (allow to dry overnight on a Silicone Mat before adding to your card with Multipurpose Glue)!

Card 2 – Many of the products on this card are about to retire and are on sale! If you want to get these items, be quick, because once they are gone, they are gone. The Floating & Fluttering Bundle and this gorgeous Love You Always Specialty DSP are both heavily reduced in price.

Sweet Strawberry Birthday

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 46 – Shaded Spruce

Shaded Spruce is from the Regals collection. It isn’t a colour I use very often, so it was very challenging and it may not look it, but this card took me ages to create. I even had to go to the Colour Coach swatch for inspiration.

Shaded Spruce

I chose the third combination and went for the Sweet Strawberry Bundle that is carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue, yay!

My card base is Shaded Spruce and I randomly stamped a single image onto Gray Granite cardstock in the one colour. Once it was dry, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I sponged the edges with Shaded Spruce ink to soften the edges when on the card base.

Sweet Strawberry pop up card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and fussy cut it. The strawberry was stamped in Melon Mambo ink; the outline was stamped twice using the Stamparatus to get a deeper tone. Cut it out using the Strawberry Builder punch. I wrapped the White Crinkle Seam Binding around the Granite layer and tied in a bow. I placed a Square Vellum Doilie under the ribbon and added the strawberry and sentiment on dimensionals.

On the inside, is the surprise! I had planned to use this apron on the front, but couldn’t get it work, so decided to create a pop up card! I used the All Dressed Up dies to cut the apron out of the In Good Taste DSP. The Melon Mambo trim is cut using the new Basic Borders dies and trimmed down to fit. More of the same ribbon/binding, is added for the straps.

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the larger leaf placed in the corner.

This is how it looks when attached to the pop up mechanism. Do you think it looks like an apron?

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray

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 45 – Seaside Spray

Seaside Spray is from the 2019-2021 In Color collection. It is one of my favourites and I am sure going to miss it when it retires on 3 May.

Pierced Blooms Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Hydrangea Hill DSP is embossed with the Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and glued to a white card base. I die cut a variety of flowers and leaves using the Pierced Blooms dies in Seaside Spray, Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy cardstock. The vellum layer is die cut using the Flowering Vine dies.

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment panel is stamped (Beautiful Friendship stamp set) and die cut. After cutting, turn it over still in the die and run a stylus around the edge to give it that extra embossed edge. Fold some ribbon behind the sentiment and add some dimensionals at either end to adhere it to the card.

To finish, I added some Faux Resin dots, Rhinestone Jewels and Butterfly Gems.

Vine Design Feminine card

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 44 – Sahara Sand

Sahara Sand is from the Neutrals collection.

I have used the very pretty Vine Design Bundle for my card tonight and teamed Sahara Sand with Rococo Rose and White. Rococo Rose is one of the outgoing InColors and I sure will miss it. How gorgeous does it look with Sahara Sand?!!!

I love to use a white card base, so I designed my card front onto a Rococo Rose A6 piece of card.

I die cut the large rectangle die (Flowering Vine Dies) in Sahara Sand and cut it in half so I could glue half at the top section of the card front and half at the bottom.

Vine Design Sahara Sand Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The leaves are stamped onto a piece of white card. I stamped the small flowers onto some scrap white card and die cut them with the coordinating dies, adding a small rhinestone to the centres.

I glued the stamped white layer onto some Rococo Rose card and then onto some Sahara Sand card to add some layers. Once these were glued together, I wrapped around some Rococo Rose scalloped trim at one end and tied in a knot. I added the edges from the dimensionals pack around the back and placed it in the centre of the card.

Vine Design Sahara Sand Colour Creations Showcase Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 sq

I stamped and die cut the sentiment, trimming off the left edge with Paper Snips so it could slide in under one of the flowers.

Each of the small flowers are added with a mini dimensional and I also added some of the cute Butterfly Gems that coordinate perfectly.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Mother’s Day

AWHT Creative Showcase

For tonight’s showcase, we are featuring Mother’s Day which is celebrated in Australia on 9th May!

Mother's Day card for Monthly Showcase, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2021

A Gorgeous Grape card base with some of the Hydrangea Hill DSP was the perfect start for my Mother’s Day card. I remember having Hydrangea’s in our garden growing up and these colours remind me of mum!

Gorgeous Grape Purple Posy Basic White

I stamped off the hydrangea image from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set (unfortunately it has sold out since I made this card) before stamping it onto Basic White card. Then I die cut the panel and used the stylus (from the Simply Scored) around the edges on the back while it was still in the die. This gives that beautiful embossed edge. Stamp the ‘you’ in the same ink at full strength. The butterflies are from the Floating & Fluttering Bundle and die cut in Purple Posy card. The Forever & Always Bundle has the dies to create the ‘love’ which is popped up on Black Dimensionals.

On the inside I added a 1″ strip of DSP down the side and some basic white card to write my message. I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape and added some Purple Posy die cut flowers.

The Butterfly Gems are on the retirement list and at a reduced price, so be quick if you want them!

Love You Rococo Rose

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 42 – Rococo Rose

Rococo Rose is another one of the InColors which will sadly retire soon when the new Annual catalogue is released and 5 new InColors will be introduced. I really like this soft blush colour and it works beautifully with the colours I’ve used today.

Pierced Blooms Love You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut many of the flowers with the Pierced Blooms dies in the various colours before working out exactly how I was going to put this card together. Once I had all the pieces, I thought it would look pretty cool in a wreath style, but as they are fairly large blooms, I needed to have a larger Thick Basic White square card (12.5cm²).

The flowers are placed on dimensionals and then I went back and added some foliage underneath.

The ‘Love You’ is from the Forever & Always Bundle. I stamped them in Rococo Rose on white card and die cut the ‘love’ with the coordinating die and the ‘You’ I just used paper snips.

You can see I added more of those cute Butterfly Gems and some Wink of Stella to the So Saffron die cuts for a little sparkle.

Rich Razzleberry Perennials

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 41 – Rich Razzleberry

Rich Razzleberry is from the Regals collection and a colour I used to use a lot of, but not so much recently. It was lovely to get it out again and get creative!

Today I went with the Pretty Perennials Bundle. This is my first time using these products and I thought they would look lovely in Rich RazzleberrySeaside SprayMisty Moonlight.

I began randomly stamping the background card in Rich Razzleberry ink for a lovely tone on tone effect. Then I took a 2″ strip of basic white card and used the thick brush from the Water Painters pack and watercoloured the stripes. Once it was dry, I cut it down to 1½” wide and glued it to the card front. The extra strip was glued inside the card!

Pretty Perennials by Kate Morgan, Stmapin Up Australia 2021.

Next, I stamped the flowers in various sizes and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I sat them on the card to see how I was going to place them. Once I was happy, I glued down some of the smaller ones, with the larger ones slightly layered over the top. The only one I popped up on a dimensional, was the large flower above the sentiment. The six leaves were also embossed in the Subtles TIEF and run through the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

The sentiment was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink on Seaside Spray card and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The happy is popped up on dimensionals. I also coloured the Basic Pearls with my Seaside Spray Dark Blends Marker.

Week 40 – Real Red

Real Red is lovely bright red, but it is not a colour I use a lot of. My first instinct was to stamp and colour a rose, but wanted to try something completely different. I had a sample of this Snail Mail DSP which has Real Red listed as one of the colours. Because I don’t have anything else from this suite, I decided to really focus on the papers. One sheet has lots of larger snails, so I cut one out with my paper snips.

My card base is Real Red with a Basic White layer. The patterned paper is one sheet, but I cut a third off and flipped it over for a bit of contrast and I quite like the sentiments in the speech bubbles. The Ornate Borders die is used to add some interest between the two pieces of DSP.

Snail Mail card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Once again I used a Square Vellum Doilie to soften the bold patterned paper.

Are you wondering where I got the mushroom? I made it myself using the Ice Cream Builder Punch for the hood (Real Red & Blushing Bride), a 1/8″ circle punch for the dots and cut the white stem by hand!

The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is stamped in Real Red and I used my electric cutting machine to cut it out or you can use paper snips to fussy cut.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Sketch challenge

AWHT Creative Showcase

For tonight’s showcase, we were given a card sketch as a starting point for inspiration. This is something that I really struggle with, but really wanted to challenge myself to have a go at.

Sketch Challenge

This card is for my Father-in-law birthday so I started with the Well Suited DSP. I chose Pacific Point as my card base and then layered two patterns of the DSP, joining them under the Seaside Spray Scallop Ribbon Trim. The stitched triangles are embossed using the Scripty 3D, Tasteful Textile 3D & Hammered Metal 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The Happy Birthday (Sweet Ice Cream stamp set) is stamped in Night of Navy ink, fussy cut with Paper Snips then added with Dimensionals.

Well Suited Triangles for Monthly Showcase Sketch Challenge by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2021.

Thanks to Ros Davidson, I had a go at making some of my own Faux Resin Dots. Using a standard hole punch, I punched some cardstock, placed them onto the Silicone Mat and added some Fine Tip Glue piled up on top. Allow them to dry fully (a few hours), before adding them to your card with a glue dot.

Well Suited Triangles for Monthly Showcase Sketch Challenge by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

On the inside, I added an offcut of the DSP and stamped the sentiments with Night of Navy ink and the stars with Pacific Point ink.

Pierced Blooms on Painted Texture

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 39 – Purple Posy

Purple Posy is lovely soft purple and one of the InColors which will sadly retire in the next few months when 5 new InColors will be introduced.

I cannot stop using these Pierced Blooms dies. They are just fabulous!

My card base is Purple Posy with a layer of Highland Heather then a Basic White piece, dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D TIEF.

Vine Design Thinking of You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

I love this colour combination: Rococo Rose – Purple Posy – So Saffron – Soft Sea Foam

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink and cut out with an electronic cutting machine if you have one, or simply fussy cut with Paper Snips. The sentiment and the flowers are popped up on dimensionals and everything else is glued with Multipurpose Glue.

How cute are those little Butterfly Gems – they come in all the 2019-2021 InColors.

On the inside I added another flower die cut and strips of card like on the front of the card!
