HOC Week 3 – Sneak Peek to the coolest friend ever, Penguins!

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021-22

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I share another sneak peek of some new products, the Penguin Place bundle ($54.75AUD). This is a punch bundle and it is adorable. I’m not normally into the cutesy type sets, but this one is cute and can also be used for birthdays with a balloon and bithday sentiments included, so a win-win. In the Sale•a•bration brochure, you can also earn a full pack of 12″ x 12″ Pengiun Playmates DSP that coordinates with this bundle for any order over $90+!

Penguin Place, SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan Australia

The snow hills are stamped in Balmy Blue ink onto the new Snowy White Velvet Sheets ($8.75AUD) and then I used Paper Snips to cut along the edge. The Stitched So Sweetly dies cut out the sentiment. The Penguins were stamped in Black Memento ink using the Stamparatus to ensure I got a nice dark tone by stamping twice. I penguin on the front is fussy cut, but the one on the inside is cut using the Penguin Builder punch! The feet and beak are stamped in Calypso Coral ink and the hat and scarf in Polished Pink ink (fussy cut).

How cute is the inside?!!!

Card 2 – This card predominantly uses the upcoming Sale•a•bration item, Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ DSP, that can be selected for FREE with any $90+ order from 4 August 2021!

The background panels, cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the three cute images are all cut from the DSP! The sentiment is the same one as on the above card, but this time I cut it into three separate sections to glue to each of the three panels.

The Balmy Blue Gems added an extra touch of glimmer and I thought went really well with this colour combination. The White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

CCBH Balmy Blue – Feminine Hats Off

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 2 – Balmy Blue

The Hats Off stamp set and coordinating dies are fantastic value at only $61. Not only can you create masculine cards for the men and boys in your life, but you can create feminine cards too!

Tonight I have made a feminine version in Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape and Basic White.

Colour Combination - BB GG BW

Stamping the stars directly on the card base in Gorgeous Grape ink creates some interest. The top section is the 6″ x 6″ Subtles DSP in Balmy Blue, that I cut down to A6 size then die cut it with the Basic Borders Dies. Keep the offcut piece for the inside of the card! 

Hats Off Bundle for Balmy Blue CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The hat is stamped and die cut and then the brim is bent up gently along the scoreline to give that realistic look of a cap. Place dimensionals only behind the hat (not the brim) and add to the card. 

Hats Off Bundle for Balmy Blue CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021

On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday using the images from the Biggest Wish stamp set and added the DSP offcut from the front piece. I die cut a small hat in Balmy Blue to add to the corner.

Wow, we have come to the end of the colours and what a wonderful year it was, with some amazing inspiration from our team!

Week 50 – Soft Suede

Soft Suede is from the Neutrals collection.

Colour Combination - Soft Suede Real Red Crushed Curry Basic White

I randomly stamped the background images (Biggest Wish stamp set) onto a Soft Suede card base in the same colour ink. The cap (Hats Off stamp set) is stamped onto Real Red card in Soft Suede and die cut with the coordinating Hat Builder dies. The patch is Soft Suede card and the lightening bolt is Crushed Curry card.

The patch is added with dimensionals, as is the cap to the card base.

On the inside I stamped with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede ink and added a Real Red Star die cut to carry over the colours from the front!

To finish off the front, I added some Crushed Curry faux resin dots to incorporate a little more interest.

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Icypoles are a favourite in my house!

Today’s card is very simple to create, as the background DSP does all the work for you! This is the reverse side of one of the sheets in the Ice Cream Corner 12″ x 12″ patterned paper pack.

Who doesn’t love an icypole on a warm day?!!! Well it’s a long weekend in Melbourne this weekend and the weather is warming up again, so I’m sure my kids will be wanting some icypoles to cool down.

Sweet Ice Cream card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auaralia 2021

The icypoles are stamped in Mango Melody and Magenta Madness and the stick is Crumb Cake ink. Once I stamped both the icypoles, I fussy cut them and adhered them with dimensionals. The same is done with the sentiment stamped in Bermuda Bay to match the background.

The Square Vellum Doilies add some softness to the bold background so the icypoles stand out more.

Abundance of Butterflies

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 38 – Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is one of my least used colours in the Stampin’ Up! range. I haven’t used much of it in my card today, but I actually love how it looks with Misty Moonlight.

I took a piece of the patterned paper from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP pack. I cut the piece to fit my White card base.

Floating & Fluttering Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

I stamped the butterfly image twice in Memento Black ink using the Stamparatus, then die cut them both. Placing them on the card I wanted to add a sentiment through the centre at an angle, so I cut a strip out of the centre of the DSP before gluing the two pieces at either end of the card base.

The butterflies are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight & Granny Apple Green. They are add with dimensionals to the card.

This sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set, is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I coloured some pearls with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Week 35 – Pool Party

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.

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.

Pampered Pets for Christmas, yay or nay?

The Playful Pets Suite is the perfect product for a card for my dear friend who has her own dog walking business. I had to put a little doggy on her Christmas card!

Pampered Pets for Christmas by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

A card base of Whisper White, stamped with Real Red ink. The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the Cherish the Season stamp set and the rest is from the Pampered Pets stamp set.

The Stitched Stars dies are used to cut some Vellum which is sits behind the focal image.

The Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is so cute and the Pets Dies cut out the images from the paper. Yes, this dog is cut directly from the paper!

Mini Dimensionals help pop up the dog die cut.

Summer Theme for our final Monthly Creative Showcase 2020

AWHT Creative Showcase

Monthly Creative Showcase: Summer Theme

Tonight’s card is based on what Summer time means to me – hot days, school holidays, lazy days at home and boy, am I looking forward to the end of the school year!!!

This card is a bit of a mix of Melbourne and our holiday to Hanuama Bay, Hawaii, where we snorkelled with turtles!

The bright beach boxes are a true Melbourne icon and I have made mine in Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point and Real Red. The sand is So Saffron card as my base, with the wave patterned paper glued at the bottom and the top section is Shaded Spruce with Coastal Cabana behind for the palm trees. This was cut using the Friendly Silhouette dies.

That little turtle is cut out of the Whale of a Time DSP and the waves are also part of this paper stack. The Whale of a Time Sequins & shells are added with a glue dot.

While in isolation, it has been wonderful to have our travel memories, and to dream of one day going on another fantastic holiday.

Final Heart of Christmas for 2020

Heart of Christmas image

Welcome back to our final Heart of Christmas with the Art with Heart Team for 2020. Each month we have shared Christmas inspiration with you using current Stampin’ Up! products. Have you been inspired to make your Christmas cards & projects this year? It has been a good time while in lockdown due to COVID-19, to stay busy.

Tonight I have a fun Christmas card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set with the Snowflake Splendor DSP.

My card base is Purple Posy with the ribbon wrapped around the DSP panel. A separate bow is tied and glued at the top of the die cut (Tasteful Labels).

The little mice are stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Blends Markers; Pool Party, Ivory, Purple Posy. I added some Shimmery Chrystal Effects to the bauble. This die cut is popped up on dimensionals and the bow added.

Please head over to Judy’s blog to see the full list of participants in this month’s Heart of Christmas. We would love for you to visit each one and leave some comments if you feel inspired.
