Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 38 – Polished Pink

Dandy Designs DSP

Just look at the fun patterns on those papers and you get 48 sheets which is double the amount of most packs!

Adorable Owls stamp set

My first card today is a Polished Pink card base with three strips of the Dandy Designs papers. The middle piece is the reverse pattern of the other two!

The Adorable Owl is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with alcohol Blends Combo Markers; Pale Papaya, Pool Party, Medium Combo, Medium Deep, Polished Pink & Fresh Freesia. It is die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits dies and the edge sponged with Fresh Freesia ink using a dauber. A Polished Pink banner from the Stylish Shapes dies is glued to the card. Some Metallic Woven Ribbon (Sweet Sorbet) was added then the circle added with Dimensionals.

Some Wink of Stella is added to the party hat and eyes of the owl. Polished Pink In Color Jewels were added for more sparkle. The Basic White insert is stamped with Polished Pink ink and a narrow strip of DSP added across the bottom.

My next card also uses the Adorable Owls along with the Dainty Delight Bundle. The Basic Border Dies were used the cut the edge of the front of the card, before dry embossing it with the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder.

I die cut the Polished Pink flowers and the Gold Foil centres and the leaves. Two of these were cut and joined together to create the wreath effect. The flowers are popped up on Mini Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted using the Heat Tool. Then it was die cut using the banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. This was also added on Dimensionals. The owl is stamped and fussy cut using Paper Snips and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Markers; Pool Party (Dark), Pale Papaya (Dark), SU500, SU600 & SU700. Some of the Fine Tip Glue was added to the eyes for extra shine!

Share a Milkshake Pop Out Gatefold card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 37 – Petal Pink

This fancy Fold design is very easy to create with a few scorelines and two cut lines to create the card base (template at the end of the post).

The belly band holds the card closed and the Something Fancy dies have these 2 nesting dies which were perfect to layer for the front of my card, with the Share a Milkshake stamp set and coordinating dies. The Gingham Cottage DSP is so pretty to decorate the panels and the Country Floral Lane DSP on the belly band and inside the card.

The spoon and the bowl are die cut from Silver Foil, perfect for serving this sweet treat.

When the Belly Band slides off, you get a beautiful surprise inside. It opens right up and the centre pops forward. The thinner central panels at the top and bottom can either fold backwards…

or forward like this (which I prefer) but I guess the recipient can decide 😉

Look at the textured white centre panel with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder? How pretty is that?!!!

Here is the template

I was initially inspired by a similar card by Mixed Up Crafts on YouTube, but hers was a much bigger style. I wanted mine to fit into our C6 envelope, so set about making my own template.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using Polished Pink.

Love Cats Tunnel Card

If you saw my Seaside Bay card on Saturday (click here), I said I’d share another card with an extra layer. Well here it is!

The Love Cats stamp set and the Dandy Designs DSP (Level 2 SAB item) are perfect for this fun tunnel card. The cats are stamped in Petal Pink, but before stamping onto Basic White card, I inked up the zigzag stamp from the Stitchery stamp set and stamped it with Calypso Coral ink directly onto the cat image then stamped the cat onto the white card. This is called the Kissing technique, kissing the two stamps together, and can be really effective. Once I stamped the 3 cats, I fussy cut them with Paper Snips.

Love Cats Tunnel card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, SAB 2023

The sentiment inside the tunnel is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle.

Here is how it looks from the top, once constructed and it folds flat to fit into our C6 envelope!

Love Cats Tunnel card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023 top

On the back of the card, I used the die cut circles from the front design, plus the Alphabet A La Mode dies (with Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting) and the ‘birthday’ from the Art Gallery stamp set. I also used a Sponge Dauber to add some ink around the White circle.

Don’t these cats look awesome in this tunnel – just like cats really are playing!

Seaside Bay and Adorable Owls

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 34 – Pacific Point

Tomorrow the excitement continues with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb), where you earn free product with every $90 that you spend! Do you have a list of products that you have your eyes on? Tonight, I’ll share a suite that I fell in love with straight away when I saw this new catalogue we received at our event in Sydney in mid-November.

The By The Bay Suite has a Seaside Bay stamp set & dies bundle, Balmy Blue & White Ribbon, Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls embellishments and some stunning By the Bay SDSP with gold foiling and Pearl Coating on it!

My card tonight, I’m using the designer papers and the Seaside Bay Bundle.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

I started with a Pacific Point 29cm x 10.5cm card base, folded in half at 14.5cm. I cut 3 strips of different papers that measure 14cm x 3cm and glued them to the card front.

Seaside Bay card for Pacific Point CCBH by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023

I die cut the shell twice in Gold Foil and glued them together. The sentiment is stamped on Basic White card and a banner cut on the left using Paper Snips, before sponging Pacific Point ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. This was glued to the card and the shell on top with a Flat Adhesive-backed Pearl added.

On the inside, I added a Basic White card insert, sponged the edges and added an offcut of the DSP and some Pacific Point card to the bottom edge, along with a couple of smaller Gold Foil shells.

Fitting Florets meets Adorable Owls

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have recovered from the festive season and are looking forward to a big 2023! With the excitement looming with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb) on 5 January, I thought I’d pop by and share some cute cards I’ve made using the Adorable Owls stamp set (Level 1 SAB offering).

The images are stamped in Black Memento ink on Basic White card and coloured with Pool Party, Pale Papaya, Light SU900 & Medium SU500 Combo Blends Markers. They are die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits dies and the scallop circle layer is cut in card.

Fitting Florets meet Adorable Owl by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023.

The Fitting Florets DSP which I’ve used in the background, will be retiring tomorrow, so if you need it (like I did), you’ll need to get moving and place your order 😆  I adore this particular sheet with the Night of Navy and Polished Pink design. I cut a Basic White layer slightly smaller than the card front, then the DSP slightly smaller again. I cut 4cm off the bottom of the DSP and flipped it over to have the reverse pattern showing. Glue these to the white layer then wrap a piece of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon around and across where the DSP joins. Now it can be glued to the card base.

Masculine Soccer card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 24 – Granny Apple Green

When it was time to create with Granny Apple Green, the colour reminds me of freshly cut grass.
I recently purchased the Beautiful Shapes dies which includes this tiny hexagon, and it reminded me of a soccer ball, perfect for my masculine card!!

Birthday Soccer Card with Beautiful Shapes Granny Apple Green CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The hardest part in creating this card, was cranking the cardstock/die through the machine multiple times until I had enough hexagons to create my soccer ball pattern. These were added with Stampin’ Seal to a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock. Once they were all adhered with a small gap between them, I cut it down to size to fit onto the Basic Black layer which was glued to the card base.

Although the twine is Parakeet Party, it works well on this card. The sentiment from Charming Sentiments stamp set is stamped and cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered with Mini Dimensionals.

Dancing Gnomes

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

My Slimline card today has a fun trio of dancing Gnomes!

I layered some Mint Macaron card on the Thick White card base, then a layer of the snowflake design from the Storybook Gnomes DSP.

Dancing Gnomes Slimline card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The mechanism for the feet to swing, is simply a piece of 2cm x 3cm white card with a hole in the centre. See the nose of the Gnome, well that same die was used to cut the hole (keep these die cut pieces to use for the nose by colouring with the Dark Petal Pink Blends Marker). Glue the mechanism to the back of the feet. Place the feet onto the card and hold the gnome above to work out where you need the feet to be. Add a Mini Dimensional in the centre. Remove the backing paper.

Dancing Gnome mechanism by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022    Dancing Gnome by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

Put together the rest of the Gnomes. Flip them over and add 4 x Mini Dimensionals to the back of the Gnome’s hat (as shown), allowing plenty of room for the mechanism to swing behind the beard. Remove the paper backings and add the Gnome over the mechanism and feet. Ta-da, dancing Gnomes!!! I added some arms to each Gnome later, as I felt they were missing. To create those I used the small mushroom die for the sleeves with the nose for the hands.

Decorate the inside to match the front.

Measurements
Card base: 21cm x 20cm, score short edge @ 10cm
Mint Macaron: 20.5cm x 9.5cm (2)

Sunshine Hippo Splash

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 16 – Crushed Curry

Crushed Curry is certainly not my favourite yellow colour, as I find it a bit dark and hard to use. I wanted to add some much needed sunshine to our lives, as it’s been very cold and wet Winter here in Melbourne. Using the Rays of Light stamp set with the Stamparatus, I began inking and stamping onto Basic White card a couple of times to get a more even coverage. I felt it was a little too big and so cropped it with one of the Deckled Rectangle dies and another to cut the Crushed Curry matt layer. These are glued together and adhered to the card base (Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes).

Just look how much fun this hippo is having, splashing water everywhere!!!

Sunshine Hippo Splash card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The hippo is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Smoky Slate & Medium Combo. The snorkel and water are die cut from Tahitian Tide cardstock. The sentiment (Charming Sentiments Bundle) is stamped and die cut using the coordinating dies. This is added with Dimensionals, as it the Tub, cut from Distressed Gold Specialty paper. Doesn’t it give a lovely rusty/distressed look?!!

I couldn’t resist adding some bubbles spilling over the side and I did this using the Pearlized Enamel Effects Basics White.

Happy Forest Friends card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 15 – Crumb Cake

Tonight we focus on the colour, Crumb Cake, a lovely neutral tone that goes with every colour in the Stampin’ Up! range.

I adore this Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper, and although it doesn’t have Crumb Cake in it, I felt that it worked well with the bear and trees. My card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of So Saffron card, then another Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Stitched Greenery die.

Happier Than Happy card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The patterned paper is cut using the Deckled Rectangles die and layered onto So Saffron card. I trimmed a piece of the Natural 1/2″ Woven Ribbon and added it with glue dots across the card. The top panel is added with dimensionals. I die cut three acorns from Crumb Cake card and glued them to the trees. The sentiment (Happier Than Happy Bundle) is stamped onto So Saffron card and die cut with this cute little banner and added with dimensionals. A Linen Thread bow is added with a glue dot.

I made this card for my youngest daughter’s birthday this Friday – welcoming her TEENAGE-HOOD! Yikes, when did that happen?!!! This suite was the Number 1 item she added to our ‘must have’ list when we first browsed through the Annual catalogue together, so it was appropriate I used it for her 13th birthday card!

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Crushed Curry.
