Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Happy 50th Birthday to my hubby!

Well, today my hubby turns 50 – eek, when did that happen?!!!

When I met him 22 years ago, he had this red Mini in his garage that was in need of major work to get it back on the road again, but he just didn’t have the time or money and when we moved in together it had to go. However, he always wanted to get another one in the future… do you think this card will suffice?!!! I don’t think so, but it’s a little reminder of his dream (maybe one day when he retires!).

This card uses some retired product (Designer Paper) and the car image is not Stampin’ Up! and boy did I know that when I inked it up. Eek, I’ll be sticking to my SU supplies for their superior quality to this one, it was a horror to get a clean image and it took several goes 😦

The Happy Birthday image on the front is from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set, inked in Versamark and Silver Emboss Powder added and heat set. The car is popped up on a wobble element so it moves around and is very cute!

Check out the personalised number plate!!! I used the Make a Difference stamp set. The image is coloured with Real Red/Smoky 
Slate & Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. Shimmery Crystal Effects is used on the car lights for a bit of shine.

Family Party was the perfect stamp set for the inside sentiment and the silver foil numbers are the Playful Alphabet dies, sitting on a black die cut from the Tasteful Labels dies. The stars are stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

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.

Please head over to Cathy’s blog to see the full list of participants in this week’s Colour Creations Showcase. We would for you to visit each one and leave some comments if you feel inspired.

Scenes under the Sea

Now it is October, we have a new Tutorial Bundle for you – some of the Art with Heart team ladies, including myself have put together 8 step by step tutorials to give you loads of fabulous ideas for using current Stampin’ Up! product. Each bundle contains 8 tutorials combined into a PDF package including colour photos, a supply list, measurements and comprehensive step by step instructions. Click here for more details. This bundle is $12AUD worldwide or free with a minimum $50 order from me in October 2020 (Australia only).

Scenes under the Sea

Here is another Whale of a Time Suite card which is very simple, just adding a couple of elements.

My card base is Balmy Blue with a piece of the designer paper creating the backdrop. This paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

The whale is punched from another sheet of DSP with the Whale Builder Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper is added above the whale spout and also some of the seaweed at the bottom. It just reminds me of looking down into a clear blue ocean with the element of shine and sparkle the water gives. I used the Forever Flourishing dies for these – who would have thought!!

This is such a simple card but this DSP creates the scene for you!

Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

Monthly Creative Showcase: Masculine Theme

Tonight’s card is a fancy fold Cube Card that is so popular right now. You can find instructions all over the internet to create these.

Masculine Cube Card using Stampin Ups World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I have kept mine fairly simple and straight forward with the decorating. The World of Good Specialty DSP has the gorgeous Gold Foil through it, so I didn’t want to go covering it up with loads of embellishments.

Colour Creation Showcase: Cinnamon Cider in Nature

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cinnamon Cider!

This new brown tone is a rich and slightly more rusty colour than the other browns, but you will see how warm it is with the right colour combination.

Paired with Petal Pink, it certainly adds a feminine touch, along with the addition of some Scalloped Lace Trim.

The Saddle Brown Stazon Ink coordinates beautifully with Cinnamon Cider. The 6″ x 6″ 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper is the perfect background with this stamp set.

Colour Creations Showcase – Basic Gray

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour to showcase is Basic Gray!

The Beautiful World Bundle is just the perfect product for Masculine cards, or even using with your travel photos in a memory album.

The Basic Gray card base (10.5 x 29.7cm) is folded in half, then I glued some die cut globes in the same cardstock as my feature background. The Very Vanilla layer (6 x 10cm) is stamped with the globe then glued to the Basic Gray layer (6.5 x 10.5cm) and run through the embossing machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Now you can add the Silver stand.

A World of Good

Now that you have seen the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue, what are your top products that you want to buy or have already purchased? If you are anything like me, I couldn’t wait for 3 June to arrive!!!! 💜

This World of Good Suite was top of my list (along with a few others, hehe) and I love that we have a few more masculine products to select from this year. I really struggle creating masculine cards, but this suite is just fantastic with all the coordinating products to choose from!

The designer paper I have used today is from the one sheet. I just cut one third off, flipped it over and glued it to my card! This is a great way of seeing both sides of the papers.

World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Do you see that feather? Well the die doesn’t emboss all that detail on it, so I just used the stylus from my Simply Scored and added all those lines, freehand!

The sentiment is stamped on Early Espresso card in Verssmark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is new and it is fantastic. You can make 3 different width sizes and 2 different fancy shapes at the ends of the labels and you can make any length, all from the one punch!!!

It is hard to see in this picture below, but the Brass Foiling on the paper is so bright and shiny; it’s a real wow!

Colour Creations Showcase – Balmy Blue

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Today is the first day we begin this new adventure of the Colour Creations Showcase. You may recall we did one of these with the last colour refresh a year or two ago, and it was loads of fun, so every Wednesday we will bring to you, projects showcasing one particular Stampin’ Up! colour. There are 50 colours in the collection and today we begin with Balmy Blue!

For today’s card I am using the stamp set, A Good Man and some of the new designer series paper, World of Good, along with some other new products available in the Annual catalogue.

The designer paper is given that aged look with the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. It is just perfect for this project, don’t you think?

A Good Man masculine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020 s

The image is stamped with Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies. I ran the Saddle Brown Stazon ink pad around the edges of this die cut image (and the Designer Paper) to add that aged look.

On the inside of the card, I added a layer of Balmy Blue and Whisper White card and stamped the sentiment and a heart in coordinating inks.

Breathtaking Bouquet with Pigment Sprinkle water colours!

Have you ever tried water colouring with the Pigment Sprinkles? No, well check out these vibrantly coloured cards!

I placed a tiny amount of pigment sprinkles onto a clear block and used my AquaPainter to add water and start colouring. You can also mix the colours to get a huge variety of colour.

This one has been done the same way, but swapping the flower colours, changes it up so much, along with a different card base.
