Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Basic Gray

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today is the second hop, as I missed the first one last week which featured the new colour, Balmy Blue (love it), however this week is Basic Gray and I am featuring both colours to get me started!!!

I am featuring the Best Bunny Bundle; stamp set and coordinating punch. It is fantastic value at just $53 for both items!

Best Bunny Photopolymer Bundle

I stamped the bunny on basic gray card with basic gray ink and punched out the pieces. I added some Wink of Stella to the centre of his ears, nose, tail and belly. His head has a mini dimensional behind for some added height. Behind him is the Tailored Tag Punch in Whisper White with Balmy Blue ink sponged around the edges and added with dimensionals.

Check out that gorgeous polka dot tulle ribbon wrapped around the card and tied in a bow. It is so soft and easy to tie in a bow.

Did you notice the embossed background? This is the brand new Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. It is simply stunning and reminds me of a baby blanket, perfect for this card.

On the inside, I have simply stamped some stars in both coordinating colour inks and sponged the edges.

Varied Vases with the Stamparatus!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card we made at my recent classes. This was a simple design to show my ladies how to use the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool).

Varied Vases Stampin Up Feminine Card by Kate Morgan, Australia

We inked the floral outlines in Basic Gray, stamping it once, moved the hinged plate down one notch and stamp again and repeat. On another plate we had the shelf inked in Smoky Slate ink. Then on the reverse of the first plate, we inked up the flowers in 3 different colours; Petal Pink, Coastal Cabana & Highland Heather. We punched out some vases in 3 of the new in colours; Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch and added them with dimensionals.

Varied Vases Bundle is a favourite!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Varied Vases bundle but this time with the gorgeous Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and the new Pearlized Doilies.

On the vases after I had stamped them and cut them out, I added some fine tip glue to them for that added shine to look wet like water! I added them to the card with dimensionals. The tulips are also popped up with mini dimensionals. With the stamp set being photopolymer, it is very easy to line up the solid image to colour the flowers!

I’m pleased the lace trim has also been included again in this catalogue.

Varied Vases, blooms with happiness

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue; Varied Vases Bundle plus the Stamparatus!

I have used the new InColors, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick with Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

Varied Vases & Stamparatus 2018 Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia

I love a punch bundle (10% discount) and this one has so many options.

Handy tip when using this bundle: Punch a template from some scrap card to use to be able to line up all the stamp images on your acrylic block so you can stamp them all and then punch them all out at once! Keep your template in the stamp case for your next project.

Varied Vases punch lining up by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.

Using the Stamparatus to get those straight line images and spacing makes it so much easier. Just place your 2 line image stamps on the acrylic plate at the top using the lines on the plate to ensure they are straight. Then place your cardstock down with the magnet, and once you stamp the first images, lift the plate off, move the plate down one notch to stamp the next image… perfect placement every time!

The vase was stamped off once with the Blueberry Bushel ink to get that lighter look!

A list of products can be found at the end of this post, but there are some missing as they are not available to purchase yet!

Who loves donuts or cookies?

Hello Friends,

My project today is was inspired by Connie Tumm from the USA.

Personally, when I first saw this card, I saw those yummy, sweet, fancy jam biscuits, but so many others just saw donuts, so I’m happy to go with either!!!!

This is my version of the card and we made this at my last class with a lovely group of ladies who loved it! They had so much fun making them and they are made donuts!!!

Donut birthday card using Stampin Ups Layering Ovals Framelits, Sweet Cupcake stamps & punches by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia 2017.JPG

I personally don’t eat donuts, but I do know they come with chocolate, vanilla & strawberry icing with sprinkles on top, so that is what we made.

The card base is chocolate chip, with Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette for the other layers. We used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the oval from the centre of the card.

Some of these punches have retired, but I will always keep them as they come in handy for so many projects just like this! The 3/8″ circle punch was also used for the centre of the each donut!

Meerkat birthday

Dear Crafters,

Today I just have to share with you a card that my 10 year old daughter made for her friend’s birthday on Wednesday. Our initial conversation was that her friend loves Meerkats and my instant reaction was, how the heck do we do that???! Anyway, this is what she created all by herself and I am so proud of her!

Isn’t it amazing??! I love it!

She even stamped the balloon and the age of her friend!

And my heart almost melted when I read inside the card ♥

Thoughtful Branches, Hedgehog

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card I saw on Pinterest but I’ve changed it up to use products that I have. It’s using the Thoughtful Branches dies along with a few others that you will be able to identify!

So here is my cute little hedgehog!

Oh my, have you seen this stunning Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder? You have to get it! This is the first time I’ve used it and WOW, doesn’t it give a great effect!!!!

Can you tell that the spikes are created from the tree (less the trunk!) die?

thoughtful-branches-hedgehog-cable-knit-dynamic-tief-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I have used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Black card, along with Soft Sky.

Burger & Fries

Dear Crafters,

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day and this year, we are very fortunate to still be able to celebrate it. My dear dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago, which gave us all a big fright, but thankfully they caught it early and they are saying he will make a full recovery. He is still having some problems, but we are very hopeful that he will be back to his usual happy and fit self in no time.  Keep him in your prayers for me 😉

Anyway, this year I thought I would do some good old punch art (die cutting really) and make a card with something I reckon every dad loves, a burger and fries!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

All the layers of the burger are using the Layering Oval Framelits and a slice of cheese!!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day, Burger & Fries Punch Art, DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

How cool are the fries? I used my crimping tool to create them. Fries aren’t the same unless they are crinkle fries!!!

Cards by Kate, Happy Father's Day Burger & Fries, Punch Art DIY #stampinup @cardsbykatemorgan

And check out the sentiment. I die cut the Happy in real red and stamped the Father’s Day in Versamark and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It is so shiny and looks awesome on the Early Espresso card base.

What do you think of this card?

And did you see my new watermark on my photos? Yes, I am creating these and selling them. Be sure to check them out if you don’t already have one. Click here to order!

Foxy Friends Shadow Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a Shadow Box with the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle. I had so much fun playing with this bundle that I wanted to incorporate as many of the little animals in one project, but they wouldn’t fit on a card so I made a shadow box to display!

Sorry for the reflection, it is quite difficult to photograph without it and it didn’t look the same not in the frame!

Shadow Box, Foxy Friends, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade, 2016

I started with a whisper white background and cut it to size to fit into the 8″ x 8″ frame.

I stamped all the animals, punched them out with the Fox builder punch and some I had to fussy cut. I created an extra head for each one. Once I glued them together, I added the second head piece with a dimensional for that true 3D effect.

Here are each of the animals closer up!

Check out this little kitty cat with the bell tied around its neck, super cute!
