Is that a bear in there?!

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 20 – Granny Apple Green

Today’s card has a very general, but pretty theme, and could be used for so many different occasions, as there are no sentiments or DSP on it!

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink. Anyway, enough mumbling on, here is my card!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The narrow strip at the bottom of the Granny Apple Green Stitched Greenery layer, is some of the ‘darker’ Silver Foil sheet. The bear was stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the Crumb Cake & Polished Pink Blends Marker Combo Packs, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The Gold Thread wrapped around the card has retired (oops), I was sure it was still available. Anyway, you could use any metallic thread you may have. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the larger flowers for more sparkle.

I finished it off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels that I adore and almost finished my pack. I might have to add some more to my next order!

I love how the piercing in the background and the Pierced Blooms die cut images go together so well. This card was inspired by Nikki Spencer who used different flowers and colour combination, but I loved the layout!

HOC Week 13 – Lots of Penguin Playmates Cards

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

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!

My cards tonight are all quite easy to create using the Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ Designer Papers. Many of the images on the patterned papers can be cut using the Penguin Builder Punch or fussy cut with Paper Snips to create some gorgeous cards this Christmas.

These two cards are easily made with two pieces of patterned paper, cut diagonally in both directions, then pieced together so you have two patterns on each card. This is such an effective way to create multiples of the same design, but by changing up the card base (Fresh Freesia & Soft Sea Foam) and embellishments, can bring a different look!

Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 1   Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2

The Just Jade card base and stamped sentiment really brings out the scarf of the penguin. How gorgeous are these Wonderful Snowflakes too?!!!

IMG_6757

The Fresh Freesia card base is stamped with the snowflakes stamp from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. Four squares measuring 4cm x 4cm are glued in place and a circle (Layering Circles Dies) cut from another sheet of the patterned paper has some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon behind it before being added with dimensionals. A penguin is also popped up and some faux resin dots added. The sentiment (Christmas to Remember) is cut out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and some ink added around the edges with sponge daubers.

IMG_6749

This card heavily features the Scalloped Contours dies cut with different patterned papers an layered. The spotty layer has some slits around the edges, which I have threaded the ribbon through to help hold it in place.  The sentiment is from the Penguin Place stamp set.

This next card use some of the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty Paper; a must have item during SAB!

Be Dazzling Specialty Paper Saleabration 2021 Kate Morgan Australia

This card was created using up some strips of patterned paper that were off cuts from other projects. The Christmas Trees die cut, Scalloped Contours die cut and the gingham bow were also sitting on my desk and I was determined to use them up, so that is how this card came together. I had the strips of DSP sitting across the card behind the dotty layer, but I felt it needed something else, so out came the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper and cut a few narrow strips. Wow, adding them made all the difference. I was actually quite pleased with the outcome!

Penguin Playmates Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 6

The Penguin Builder Punch cut these little cuties directly from the patterned paper. I did stamp the scarves (Fresh Freesia, Misty Moonlight, Soft Seam Foam) and fussy cut them with Paper Snips before gluing to each penguin. I then added some Fine Tip Glue for a glossy finish, but it reacted with the ink  and once dry it doesn’t look great, but hey, hopefully the recipient won’t mind. The penguins are popped up on dimensionals to create my penguin tree! Finally I added some Faux Resin Dots.

IMG_6732

Are you sick of all these cards yet?!!!

This will be the last one for today, I promise.  This card uses the Encircled in Beauty Dies to create that gorgeous medallion which was my starting point for this card. I then used some layers of DSP that left over from other projects (can you tell I am determined to use up every piece?). The Stitched Rectangles dies was used to create the narrow dotty border to create a frame. The fussy cut images are added with dimensionals and some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems added to finish it off.

All of these cards were made over the past couple of days. I am currently on annual leave and seeing as we are still in lockdown with not much else to do, I have been busy crafting, can you tell?!! But I have been able to really build up my stash of cards ready to send out to my family and friends early this Christmas!!!

Are you loving Counting Sheep?!

Today’s project features two of the Saleabration items that can be selected free with qualifying orders, and the best part is, they coordinate!!! The Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep dies to cut them out and the extra fence, sun, balloon, clouds, flag and party hat!

Counting Sheep Cling Stamp set (156591) Saleabration 2021   Sheep Dies (156600) Saleabration 2021

Here is my card – I’ve used the Basic Borders Dies to cut the clouds (Basic White) and the rolling hills (Mint Macaron). The Blending Brushes adds some extra colour to the hills, using Mint Macaron and Pacific Point inks. The sky is also coloured with the Blending Brushes and Pacific Point ink.

Count on Me Sheep card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2021

The Balloon is die cut on Poppy Parade card, the sun and party hat on Daffodil Delight card. The hat is stamped first with the Pacific Point ink and the dots coloured with Wink of Stella. The sheep is stamped in Gray Granite ink, but I stamped off once for a lighter shade!

CCBH Crushed Curry – You can Count on Me

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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

Count on Me Rainbow Be Dazzling

Today’s project is so colourful and uses a couple of different colouring techniques. The Be Dazzing Specialty Paper is used and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are alcohol based, so it dries quickly when applied to this paper!

I cut the six strips to 14cm x 1.5cm and then coloured them. I applied them to the card base with Seal+.

The Highland Heather scallop circle element is die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies as is the Gold Heart that the bear is holding. The bear is from the Count on Me stamp set, stamped in Memento ink on Basic White card coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pens, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The ‘happy’ is cut from Highland Heather card with some Foam Adhesive Sheet on the back using the Word Wishes dies.

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’s card is a Fancy Fold card called the Pinwheel Tower card. These have been popular lately and I thought it was about time to give it a go! You will find many tutorials online for this style of card.

The card bases are Evening Evergreen, but the centre is actually made from a piece of the Evening Evergreen sheet from the 2021-2023 InColor 6″ x 6″ DSP pack.

HOC Week 5 – Penguin Playmates Peekaboo card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

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!

It’s almost time that the 2021 July-August Mini catalogue is available to purchase from tomorrow, 3rd August 2021, and tonight I have another sneak peek of some new product and free Sale•a•bration items.

The Penguin Place Bundle (#156789) is under $55AUD and has the stamp set and coordinating punch as part of the bundle.

SAB Penguin Playmates DSP Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

The Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (#158420) is one of the items you can select from the Sale•a•bration brochure with any $90+AUD order.

Penguin Playmates DSP JD21

It was one of the first items I selected and with the coordinating Penguin Builder Punch (#156452), you can punch out these little fellas from the paper without having a stamp set – although I did use the Penguin Place (#156410) stamp set for the sentiment! I have also used the Picture This Dies (#155559) which cuts out all these circles in one pass through my dfie cutting machine, for the penguins to peek through! The fox & rabbit were cut from the DSP with the Picture This Dies so they were the same size, but popped up on dimensionals. Behind each penguin head, I placed a dimensional for added depth.

SAB Penguin Playmates DSP Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia close up

On the inside, I have decorated it with the cute polar bear. See how he is half off the card, well he was fussy cut from the edge of the DSP. Just because he wasn’t a full image, don’t throw them out, you can still use them! Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for some sparkle to finish off.

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.

Penguin Playmates DSP SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

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.
