Masculine Offset 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 7 – Basic Gray

Tonight we showcase Basic Gray, a colour I don’t use a lot of, but in actual fact goes well with most colours!

I have made a gatefold card, but scored in different positions so one side is shorter than the other. The Brewed for You Bundle, (Brewed for You stamp set and coordinating Brewed dies) are awesome and I know I will get loads of use from them.

The 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper was used to decorate the front panels. The sentiment and beer glass are stamped in Basic Gray ink and Crushed Curry ink for the beer! I placed three Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels on the feature panel.

Brewed for You with Reverse Stamping Technique

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 3 – Starry Sky

Tonight we showcase our third of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Starry Sky!

I have created a Masculine card using the Brewed For You Bundle. Starting with a Starry Sky card base, dry embossed with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. A strip of the plaid pattern InColor 6×6 DSP is added to the left. Another dotty piece is die cut with the Dots & Spots die and then layered onto a piece of Very Vanilla card, cut slightly smaller and adhered to the back. Isn’t that a cool effect?!!

Brewed for You card for CCBH Starry Sky using Reverse stamping technique by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The glasses are stamped in Starry Sky and Mango Melody inks. and die cut. The one on the left is a mirror image of the same stamp as the right, using the Reverse stamping/Mirror stamping technique. How did I do that?

I used my Stamparatus and placed the Silicone Mat inside and placed the stamp on the acrylic plate. I inked the stamp and pressed down on the Silicone Mat, repeating this 3 times to get enough ink transferred, then place a piece of Basic White cardstock on top of the Silicone Mat and close the Stamparatus. This will also leave the stamped image so you know where to place the die to cut out the image. Once you run it through the Cut & Emboss machine, turn it over and you will have a perfect reverse stamped image!!! I added Wink of Stella over the Mango Melody ink.

The sentiment is stamped onto Basic White card and cut out using the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies. All the stamped elements are popped up on Dimensionals.

I added some InColor Matte Decorative Dots to finish off the front of the card.

On the inside, I glued a strip of both Designer Papers and stamped another glass, but this time I used the embossed die (Basic White card) for the beer and coloured it with Mango Melody ink using my blending brush. This was die cut and glued to the card.

Soft Suede Blog Hop ~ Two different techniques using the Stamparatus!

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 46 – Soft Suede

Tonight I have two cards for you, both using the Stamparatus to show you how wonderful this product is and if you like things perfect, this is the tool for you!

Card 1 – is a masculine card using For The Record stamp set. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Soft Suede which has two sentiments stamped down the right side using the Stamparatus and the hinged stamping technique. This means you stamp once, move the acrylic plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat to have a uniform pattern. I stamped these in Soft Suede and Memento Black inks.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022.

The record image is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black card. I added Clear Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles dies. I added a few Dimensionals to the back of the record but didn’t take off the Dimensional backings. Leave them on so the record spins. I pierced a hole through the centre of the record and the Suede layer using the Take Your Pick Tool and added a brad, gently closing it at the back. These layers are added to the card base with Dimensionals. Now the record spins!!!

The heart is Real Red card and cut using the Give It a Whirl dies and added to the brad with a glue dot.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and partially stamped the record three times across the bottom in Soft Suede ink.

For the Record Masculine card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 side

Card 2 – uses the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies.

My card base is Thick Basic White with layers of Soft Suede and Symbols of Fortune Specialty DSP. The stamped top layer is created using the Stamparatus and the Wreath Builder technique or Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique. The cookie outline is Soft Suede ink and the solid fill image is Crumb Cake ink. It reminds me of a plate of cookies sitting on a marble benchtop 🙂

Nothing's better than SITR card for Soft Suede Colour Creations blog hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

You can see the die cut word ‘cookies’ has a 3D raised look – I applied an Adhesive Foam Sheet to the back of the Soft Suede layer and die cut this word in the centre, before gluing the white stamped layer on top to cover it up! This also gave this top section some extra depth.

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

Six cards inspired by my recent holiday!

Today’s cards are inspired by my recent week long holiday to Phillip Island. It was great to get away from the city and enjoy the slower pace of seaside living, sound of the ocean and fresh air!

When I got home after not taking any craft with me, I was inspired to get creating. So are you ready to see my projects?!!!

Here are some of the items; Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves dies, Waves of the Ocean Designer 12×12 Papers, 12×12 Blue Foil Specialty Pack, and the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. The stamp and die bundle will be in the new Annual catalogue released on 3 May, however the other items are limited and available until 3 May if not sold out prior.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

I have also used the Paradise Palms Bundle (Paradise Palms stamp set and Palms dies).

PARADISE PALMS BUNDLE 157719

Card 1 – a simple design with some DSP, then a ring/circle of the Blue Foil cut using the new Stylish Shapes dies #159183 (available 3 May) and popped up on Foam Adhesive Strips. The wave is cut in Basic White card and adhered behind the circle.

Masculine birthday card using Waves of the Ocean DSP and Waves of Inspiration by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point ink and cut out using Paper Snips.

Card 2 – uses the DSP on a matt layer of Calypso Coral card on a Thick Basic White card base. I stamped the birds and grass (On the Horizon) directly onto the DSP in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment and pelican onto Basic White and die cut. Some Pebble Enamel Shapes were added along with some Rhinestone Wave Jewels.

Card 3 – a Pacific Point card base, the wave die cut in the same colour adhered across the centre of the card. The Scalloped Contours dies cut out the DSP which is popped up on Dimensionals. The stamping is again in Soft Suede ink and the clouds and birds die cut in Basic White. Rhinestone Waves Jewels to finish it off.

Waves of the Ocean by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

Card 4 – Coastal Cabana card base, layer of Pacific Point then DSP. The Green and Silver Foil from the Blue Foils Specialty Pack were used to cut the moon, grass and the Palm trees. The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point ink on White card and cut using the new Stylish Shapes dies #159183 (available 3 May).

Here is the stamping on the inside of this card.

Card 6 – using all the same products as the previous cards, although I did stamp the Palm fronds in Saddle Brown Stazon ink onto the green foil as I knew it would dry being a permanent ink!

Pillar Pop Up Fancy Fold card with Waves of the Ocean

It’s the Labour Day long weekend here in Victoria, so I’ve had an extra day to play with my new goodies that arrived on Saturday!

Today’s card is inspired by Rachel Tessman and you can see her video here. I changed mine up a bit by just using a normal A5 card, rather than the stand she creates. I just adore this style and I can see myself making many more, they just have a real wow and still fit into an envelope to post!

Waves of the Ocean Pillar Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin up Australia 2022

My card base is Night of Navy 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Navy frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding one wave in front and one wave behind and trimming the excess.

Stitched Rectangle Dies Numbers

The pillars are created using a piece of the same DSP. These need to be 3″ tall, so start with a 6″ piece and score at ⅜”, ¾”, 1⅛”, 1½” and cut at 1¾” – then cut in half at 3” to have 2 pieces. Fold these to create the pillars and adhere them to the back of the frame. Rachel lines hers up with the edge of the card, however because I was using an A5 metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

Waves of the Ocean Pillar Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin up Australia 2022 top

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set before die cutting and adhering to the card.

When adhering the frame to the card, Rachel lines it up with the edge of the card, however because I was using a metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

It folds flat to fit in an envelope and can be folded to the right…

…or to the left, it doesn’t matter!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and some birds.

Under the Sea card

Today’s card is all about the sea!

While I was on a zoom craft & chat session with my fellow demonstrators last week, I wanted to play with the New Horizons Suite. Well, that was the plan, but it didn’t quite eventuate like that. I got out the New Horizons 6″x6″ DSP, and die cut a full sheet with the two soft edged mountain dies (the ones under the snowy peaks below).

New Horizons Suite 157782 Craft with Kate

My card base is Evening Evergreen. I then had a piece of card 5mm smaller than the card base, and started layering the die cut pieces starting at the top of the card. It doesn’t matter if they overhang off the card, as once it’s complete, I cut around the edges of the card so it’s neat and tidy. Doesn’t it create an amazing background?! Glue this to the card base.

Horizon dies, Whale of a Time & Plentiful Plants card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022.

I stamped the whale (Whale Done stamp set) in Coastal Cabana ink and punched it out with the Whale Builder Punch. The foliage is from the Plentiful Plants bundle and I used Old Olive, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen inks for variation. These are cut out with the coordinating dies and added with Dimensionals.

I stamped the fish and the larger reeds directly onto the patterned paper background.

Horizon dies, Whale of a Time & Plentiful Plants card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 close up

On the inside I added more of the patterned paper in the same way as the front and stamped the sentiment.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

My card is using the Waves of Inspiration Bundle (stamps & dies) and is a fairly simple design aimed at the casual crafter. I first stamped the wave in Pacific Point ink, then used basic white & the supple shimmer card to die cut two of the intricate layers. I glued the white layer on first and took my blending brush with some pool party ink and blended some colour across the wave. The clouds are created using the Basic Borders dies and gently brushing ink starting at the top of the card and working down to the wave.

Waves of Inspiration by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 Sneak Peek

I then glued the (Pool Party) Supple Shimmer layer on top to get that gorgeous sparkle for the breaking wave. The pelican image is inked by placing Crumb Cake ink for the pelican and Soft Suede ink for the posts before stamping down onto the white card. Die cut this and place on the card with mini dimensionals. The sentiment and birds flying off into the distance are also stamped in Soft Suede ink. Lastly, I added some Wink of Stella to the feathers of the pelican.

CCBH Pacific Point: Masculine cards

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 33 – Pacific Point

Firstly I acknowledge the traditional owners of Australia and the sadness that today brings. We need to come together as a nation and in doing so we can not forget the past, but be reminded that we are now the lucky ones to live in and share this great land.

Australia Day is an important day in my families calendar and I give a big shout out to my dear dad who happens to also celebrate his birthday every year on this public holiday!

Card 1 I am using the Home & Garden Bundle (Home & Garden stamp set & Garden dies). I began with a Thick Basic White card base, then a layer of Pacific Point card before adhering a layer of the brick design from the In Good Taste DSP.

Home & Garden masculine birthday card for Pacific Point CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auatralia 2022

I used Soft Suede card to stamp the shovel and two ladders with Early Espresso ink and I die cut the wood shelf which also embosses! The broom is stamped in the same ink but onto Basic White card and before the ink dried, I used the Wink of Stella to lightly colour it. The spades were diecut in silver foil and I gave them a bit of a curve using my fingers to bend the foil.

Home & Garden masculine birthday card for Pacific Point CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auatralia 2022.

The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point ink and cut into idividual words. Old Olive is used for the grass and vine. The grass is embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and some ink gently applied with a sponge dauber. I also did this with the vine. Basic Black card was used for the hooks.

Card 2 – I have wanted to try the floating strip technique for a while and so while I had plenty of time over the past to weeks while in isolation (my youngest daughter tested positive to Covid), I had fun trying this out. I have gone for the primary colours for my strips; Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight & Poppy Parade.  I cut my strips to 1cm wide and glued them to a piece of Window Sheet before die cutting with the Scalloped Contours die.

Floating Strip Technique & Stitched Stars Masculine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

My card base is randomly stamped in Pacific Point ink with the small star from the All For Baby stamp set. The next layer is the new Mother of Pearl Specialty paper. It looks so amazing in real life 😉

I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round two corners to mimic the scallop edging before adhering to the card base. The Stitched Stars are die cut from the Mother of Pearl paper.

The sentiment* (Special Moments stamp set) is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder was added and heat set with my Heat Tool before bring fussy cut with Paper Snips. All these are added to the strips with Multipurpose Glue.

Placing dimensionals on the back of the window sheet, behind the strips so you cannot see them through the front of the card. Remove the backings and place to the cente of the card.

On the inside I added a Basic White panel and placed three stips to the bottom with another small Stitched Star to the centre of the blue one! Doesn’t it look so cute?!!!

CCBH Crumb Cake – Delicate Dahlias and Feels Like Home

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 13 – Crumb Cake

I have chosen a soft colour palette for tonight’s card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This is one of the free items in Sale•a•bration brochure with any $180+ order. This stamp set has the outline for the flower and also a full image stamp to colour inside the lines. I found using the Stamparatus was much easier to line the stamps up!

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

Colour Combination - Crumb Cake

My card base is Blushing Bride, embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the outline of the dahlia flower onto a post-it note and cut it out with Paper Snips, on the inner edge of the stamping. Then I took an A5 piece of Basic White cardstock and stamped one of the dahlia flowers then placed the post-it note over the top and stamped the second flower and the third flower using the same process.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the outline of the flowers in Crumb Cake and the centres are Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card and cut out with Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is smaller than the punch, so I placed it back in the punch and took more off each end. I used a sponge dauber to softly add ink around the edges.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

The wood frame is the In Good Taste DSP and die cut using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the smaller Stitched Rectangle Die again to cut out the stamped flowers to insert into the frame. The frame and the sentiment are all added to the card base on dimensionals.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia.

Card 2 is for Father’s Day! Have you made your cards yet?!!! Father’s Day is not far away, as in Australia, we celebrate it on 5th September. As I need to mail my cards (possibly both this year if we are still in lockdown), I needed to get them in the mail this week. So for my card tody, I am creating a fancy fold with the Feels Like Home stamp set.

Open the front of the card to begin revealing your centre message panel.

and the next to reveal the message inside with some In Good Taste DSP on the side panels. These sentiments are from the Hats Off stamp set.

Feels Like Home Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up SAB Australia 2021 open

Here is a close up of the image on the card front, stamped with Versamark Ink with White Emboss Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool. I was thinking of colouring it, but I loved the crispness of the white against the Crumb Cake, so I left it. The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Feels Like Home Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up SAB Australia 2021

Basic measurements:
Crumb Cake Card: 10.4cm x 14cm & 9cm x 9cm
Crumb Cake Card: 10.5cm x 28cm, scored at 10.5cm & 21cm
Thick White card: 13.5cm x 10cm & 10cm x 10cm
In Good Taste DSP: 10cm x 10cm & 10cm x 6.5cm (2)

Update: Want to hear a funny story? Actually, it’s not funny at all and I want to cry. We have a 5 month old puppy, Arlo, who loves to chew… well, he got to my card (that was in an envelope) and this is all that’s left of it, along with the chewed up paper/envelope 😢 Back to the drawing board to create another one for my dad, grrr. Lucky I still have a week to get it made and that I had photographed this one already!!!

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.
