Week 29 – Merry Merlot

Today’s card was inspired by Amy Shihinski (in Canada), but I needed to change it up to suit our Metric measurements here in the South Pacific. If you wish to see Amy’s measurements, there will be a link at the end of this post.

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday on Sunday. He accompanied me to Sydney so I could attend OnStage on Saturday with 500 crafty friends, he spent the day wandering around Sydney by himself and had a wonderful time. Not sure why he wouldn’t attend OnStage with me, LOL!

Anyway, I carefully carried this card all the way to Sydney in my luggage to surprise him on Sunday morning.

I have used the Brewed for You Bundle and the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Brushed Metallic Foil.

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 front.

The stamping is all done in Black Memento, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot inks and die cut using the coordinating Brewed dies. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint was added to the beer glasses and heated with the Heat Tool to activate.

Here is the real wow of this card when you open it!

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

You may notice that the sentiments and the beer glass look a little different on the inside, as they were not going to fit on the card. Never fear, I just adapted. The glass wasn’t going to fit as it was too tall, so I cut the top off down to the beer level and added the froth! The sentiments across the centre panels, I had to carefully ink up individual words, covering the ones I didn’t want, covered with some washi tape (remember to remove the tape before stamping onto the card though!).

Here are my measurements (metric):
Merry Merlot A5 card base: 14.8cm x 21cm, scored in half @ 10.5cm
Basic White Card insert: 20cm x 14cm (see image below)
Merry Merlot Matt layers: 4.5cm x 4.5cm (8), 2cm x 3.5cm (4), 4.5cm x 3.5cm (2)
Lights Aglow SDSP layers: 4cm x 4cm (4)
Gold Foil layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 1.5cm x 3cm (4)
Basic White layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 4cm x 3cm (2)

Week 25 – Gray Granite

Today’s masculine card features the Brewed for You Bundle and He’s the Man DSP. I started with a Gray Granite card base 21cm x 14cm scored @ 6.5cm, 10.5cm. I stamped the ‘hey, there!’ (Charming Sentiments stamp set) multiple times down the left hand side using the Stamparatus. I was going to use the hinge technique, but it was going to be too far apart, so I placed some grid paper under the card and used the Squares to line up my stamping. I moved the card up 2 more squares and stamped again and repeat. Open the card flat and die cut the circle (Stylish Shapes die), centred along the first scoreline. Now you can glue the left panel to the inside of the card.

Cut another circle in Basic White card and glue it to fit inside the front of the card. The He’s The Man DSP is used on right side and the reverse of this side. I cut a very thin strip of Brushed Metallics card in the Gold and glued it down the edge of the DSP on the front.

The wine glasses are stamped and die cut and the red wine is created by using a Blending Brush and Merry Merlot ink. The glass on the inside is empty with the sentiment ‘Another round for your birthday’!

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.

Masculine card: Aspen Trees

Week 18 – Early Espresso

Today is the final day of Sale•a•bration for 2022.

The largest die from the Aspen Trees dies is used to cut the Early Espresso card front. Behind this, I glued a piece of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper. I stamped the dots/speckles in the same colour ink around the edges of the card front.

Aspen Trees for Early Espresso CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Bundle is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set, before using the coordinating die to cut it out. This was added with Black Mini Dimensionals. I die cut two leaves in the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper, and one in Early Espresso card and these are adhered with glue. A small piece of Linen Thread is added behind the sentiment. To finish off I added some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Aspen Trees for Early Espresso CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 close up

On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and repeated the dots/speckles around the edge, but I stamped off before onto the white card, so it toned it down. I placed two more of the leaves to the bottom corner.

Week 14 – Coastal Cabana

Tonight’s card was created in a hurry as I had little time this week to be too creative. Covid got me good and I spent 6 days in hospital, so I was left time poor. Anyway, I’m slowly recovering and this scene is inspired by somewhere I would like to be right now, relaxing and recovering by a lake with stunning views across the water to the mountains!

Watercolour Oceanfront Landscape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White card and stamped the water image multiple times using Coastal Cabana ink and the Oceanfront stamp set. The mountains are stamped with an image from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Orchid Oasis ink. Using the large Water Painter brush, I gently added the Crumb Cake section between the water and the mountains. I also used the tips of the pine trees from the Peaceful Deer stamp set along the waters edge. The birds in the soft Tahitian Tide sky were also stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

Watercolour Oceanfront Landscape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sand and rocks at the bottom of the card are stamped in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks and then very gently blended with the large Water painter brush. The grasses are Mossy Meadow ink and some Faux Sea Glass Shapes added. This panel was adhered to a Coastal Cabana card base.

The inside white panel has some rocks, sand and grasses added along the bottom.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Crumb Cake.

Week 11 – Cajun Craze

This double Z Fold card is simply a piece of 6″ x 12″ He’s the Man Designer Series Paper scored at 2″, 4″, 8″, 10″. Measure from the bottom up 3″ on each side and cut up to the 4″ scoreline removing the triangle. Repeat this on the opposite side. Glue these triangles to the bottom of the inside.

He's The Man Double Z Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I die cut a circle in black card using the Labels Aglow dies. Adhere this to one side of the opening. Some Linen Thread is added then the “You’re a Classic” is added on dimensionals. On the inside I added some Basic White card with a couple more of the elements from the DSP pack.

I added a piece of Basic Black card (6¼” x 4¼”) to the back for it to be a little more sturdy.

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.

Brewed for You Fun Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

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.

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.

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

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

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.
