CCBH Bermuda Bay – Stained Glass Technique

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 4 – Bermuda Bay

Both my cards today use the same colour combination but using different products!

Colour Combination - Bermuda Bay

Card 1 – This single layer card ins just stamping and a little bling, as you always need a little bling! This card uses the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and the Biggest Wish stamp set for the sentiment.

Hand-Penned Petals & Biggest Wish single layer card #simplestamping by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The images are stamped onto Basic White card layer. Once I finished stamping, I ran the edges of the card along the Night of Navy inkpad for an instant border. Glue this to the card base then finish off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Card 2 – I had a go at a Stained Glass Window Technique – simply using alcohol markers (Stampin’ Blends) to colour the back of the window sheet that has been stamped on the front with Stazon Black ink with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set! The card base has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die.

The frame is die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies a few times and gluing them together for some depth. Then using some Foam Adhesive Strips to add space from the Shimmery White card behind.

Birthday, Blog Hop/Creative Showcase, feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Markers for Colouring, Stampin' Up!

A fresh new look Blog Hop featuring the New InColors 2021-2023

CCS Logo 2021-22

With the release of the new Annual catalogue, each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration and showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

With a fresh new look and returning to the traditional blog hop style, we hope you join us each Wednesday for some colour inspiration!

Week 1 – All the new In Colors

Tonight we are showcasing all the 5 new In Colors that have been released for the two year period, 2021 – 2023! 

2021-2023 InColors Stampin Up

I have managed to incorporate all of the colours in my card tonight.

My card base is Polished Pink with a layer of Pale Papaya and then a Basic White layer. This is the layer that has that pretty lacy pattern. How did I create it? I took one of the Square Vellum Doilies and the Blending Brushes with Pale Papaya ink and moved it across the white card. Some spots I used a little more ink and faded it out. Once I was happy with the look, I splattered some Wink of Stella across it with some Pale Papaya ink using the Water Painters. Put this aside to dry.

Pansy Patch Pale Papaya card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the new Pale Papaya Blends Combo Markers, I coloured the Vellum Doilie. The pansies are stamped and stamped off in the same colours but to get that varied tone. Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen. All of the new InColors are used on this card. The sentiment is stamped 3 times in Pale Papaya ink using the Stamparatus for perfect placement. I made some faux resin dots to match. A Bumblebee Trinket is added.

The sentiment on the inside is stamped in Polished Pink and another pansy added. The leaf is die cut from the Pansy Petals DSP.

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.

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

Week 31 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card is using some of the new Jan-Jun Mini catalogue products, the Forever & Always Bundle!

Old Olive – Rococo Rose – Whisper White

Elegant Love You Always for Old Olive Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

My card base is Rococo Rose with a matt layer of Old Olive. I cut a strip of Love You Always Specialty DSP and the same in the True Love DSP (coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers). These were adhered to the Old Olive layer and some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon attached at the join using Tear & Tape. The ribbon is folded over the edges and behind the Olive layer. Now this is glued to the card base. I tied a ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots.

Christmas, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Handmade Cards, Markers for Colouring, Stampin' Up!

Curvy Christmas in Classic Christmas Colours

Here is a quick background using the new Classic Christmas DSP and the Curvy dies & Curvy Christmas stamp set.

The card base is Thick Whisper White and the DSP added to the top. The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce to match, using the Stamparatus for that perfect image.

I just love this little reindeer – stamped in Memento ink and coloured with alcohol Blends Markers and some Wink of Stella added to his nose and bow. I fussy cut him out and popped him up on dimensionals.

This card is so simple and you could whip up loads of these in time for Christmas if you haven’t started your cards yet!

Colour Creations Showcase: Mango Melody is a Whisky Business

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 24 – Mango Melody

This is a super bright colour and not one I use a lot of, but I recently purchased this stamp set, Whiskey Business during the sale and wanted to ink it up!

I used the Misty Moonlight pages from the 2020–2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper pack and the In Good Taste DSP to create a bench for the images to sit on.

The images are stamped in Gray Granite on White card and coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo. They are fussy cut and added to the card on dimensionals. The ice cubes have Shimmery Crystal Effects added for texture. The sentiment is stamped in the Mango Melody ink on the same colour card and cut up then glued directly to the card.

On the inside I simply added off cuts of the DSP and stamped a simple sentiment.

The flower is stamped in Gray Granite ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Blends. The leaves I left uncoloured.

The sentiment is die cut in white and then I traced the outside of the die onto Gray Granite card and fussy cut it out to get that layered look and it really pops!

I added the gold hoop with some gold thread before placing the flower on top. I added the beautiful white bow and some rhinestones round the card for some extra sparkle.

The inside I coloured an offcut of the DSP with Pool Party and Petal Pink Blends to tie in with the front of the card.

01-10-20_DSP_SALE

Using the Stamparatus, and a template I created myself, I placed the 4″ x 4″ piece of white card on top of the template. Starting with the house image, stamp it once, rotate the card 90o, stamp again and repeat the process. The I placed the tree and the stars in position and repeated the process.

Stampin Up Coming Home & Trimming the Town DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

Once all the stamping is done, I then coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Greetings stamp set and cut out with the 1½” circle punch and layered onto a Misty Moonlight die cut from the Tasteful Labels dies.
