CCBH Crushed Curry – You can Count on Me

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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

HOC Week 9 – Whimsy Wonder Peaceful Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have got my inspiration from one of my team members, Amie McIroy, Eager to Stamp who lives in Western Australia.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP meets Peaceful Deer Handmade Christmas Card HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Christmas 2021

I just adore this Specialty paper; the colours and the extra sparkle!

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

My card base is Mint Macaron with a layer of the DSP. A strip of card was cut to size and some White Glittered Organdy Ribbon wrapped across and secured behind, before it was glued to the card. The Label Me Lovely punch was used to punch out the Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card. The pink layer I cut in half horizontally and glued behind the green punch to create the border. Then I ran it through my embossing machine in the Evergreen Forest 3D TIEF and added it to my card on dimensionals. The deer is punched from the Silver Foil and added with dimensionals also.

Count on Me Rainbow Be Dazzling

Today’s project is so colourful and uses a couple of different colouring techniques. The Be Dazzing Specialty Paper is used and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are alcohol based, so it dries quickly when applied to this paper!

I cut the six strips to 14cm x 1.5cm and then coloured them. I applied them to the card base with Seal+.

The Highland Heather scallop circle element is die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies as is the Gold Heart that the bear is holding. The bear is from the Count on Me stamp set, stamped in Memento ink on Basic White card coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pens, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The ‘happy’ is cut from Highland Heather card with some Foam Adhesive Sheet on the back using the Word Wishes dies.

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.

Feels Like Home Cling Stamp set (156607)

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!!!

HOC Week 8 – Whimsy and Wonder Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have made cards using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is just stunning with the holographic accents and the non-traditional colours for Christmas.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

These colours really appeal to me and I couldn’t wait to add them to my order.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies with Misty Moonlight card, I die cut the background label, then added a piece of Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon with some Stampin’ Seal, then one of the Wonderful Snowflakes on a dimensional, then a stamped Mint Macaron tree.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021 inside

Card 2 – For this card, I covered the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal around the edges and a big X through the centre, before I cut 5/8″ x 6″ strips of the patterned paper. I added them from the top of the card and worked my way down using the extra length on either side to help place them and line them up perfectly. Don’t worry that they overhang, as once all the strips are adhered, cut off the excess using the Trimmer or Paper Snips. This is a great way to show all the patterns in a pack of Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card 1 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

The trees are die cut in Basic White, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron. The stars are Blushing Bride and the tinsel is some of the new 12″x12″ Silver Foil. This comes in 3 shades snd this is the middle one, that has a slightly pinkish/purple shade to it.

A Whimsy Christmas

Today’s card uses the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. I just love the holographic accents and the non-traditional colour scheme for Christmas.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP JD21

I have used a Thick White card base, then cut a piece of DSP the same size as the card front. I cut approx. 2″ off one end and flipped it over, then adhered them to the card. This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes, but I still wasn’t happy with the join of the patterned papers, so I cut the edge of the sheet surrounding the Wonderful Snowflakes and used that – waste nothing when it is so pretty!

Whimsy and Wonder Christmas Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

The sentiment and pink tree are stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. The two small thin trees are die cut from Silver Foil and the trees either side are die cut from the Designer Paper and the present is fussy cut from the papers!

The sentiment is die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and added with Dimensionals over a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

CCBH Coastal Cabana – All For Baby card with Decorative Mask background

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 12 – Coastal Cabana

Tonight’s card is using the All for Baby Bundle, which is a recent addition to my supplies. I don’t actually have a lot of baby style stamp sets, but this one is rather cute with the distinctive stamps that create the shading/tone when you stamp the image – how clever is that?!!

All For Baby CCS Coastal Cabana Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Coastal Cabana card base is covered with the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks, new in the Annual Catalogue. They are a great way to add patterns with the Blending Brushes and inkpads without using DSP. I also used the same technique on the Basic White card cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. Although, this time, I left the card in the die and placed the Mask over the top so that it left the gorgeous, crisp, white scallop border. I wrapped around some White 3/8″ (1cm) Glittered Organdy Ribbon and tied it in a bow, before adding the centre panel on dimensionals. The images are stamped in Fresh Fressia and Soft Suede inks, die cut and added on dimensionals. The pegs are die cut from the new Silver Foil 12×12 Specialty Pack and also added on some cut-down dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped another bodysuit and die cut the little pocket in Coastal Cabana card and added it to the corner with a lovely stamped sentiment.

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight’s card is a Fancy Fold card called the Pinwheel Tower card. These have been popular lately and I thought it was about time to give it a go! You will find many tutorials online for this style of card.

The card bases are Evening Evergreen, but the centre is actually made from a piece of the Evening Evergreen sheet from the 2021-2023 InColor 6″ x 6″ DSP pack.

The Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ DSP is one of the items you can choose with any $90+AUD order during Sale•a•bration! It coordinates perfectly with the Penguin Place Bundle which I have also used on this card.

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 11 – Cinnamon Cider

This week I have more Hand-Penned Petals Bundle projects, starting with a Post It Note Holder! These are great little gifts to have on hand to give to family and friends and Cinnamon Cider happens to be one of the colours in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Hand-Penned DSP

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped with Versamark, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set with a Heat Tool. I coloured it with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider. I also used the Colour Lifter to dot on the Cinnamon Cider bloom to give it a little extra texture. Then I die cut it using the coordinating Penned Flower Dies. Some Genial Gems are added as I always love some gems!

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

4 pieces of DSP are placed on the front, the back and two on the inside; one under the post it notes and the other you can see below. A strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper is added to the front and inside panel.

Basic Instructions
Cardstock – 7″ x 3¼”, score each end at 3¼” & 2 pieces 3¼” x ¾” for reinforcement.
DSP – 3″ x 3″ (4 pieces).
Ribbon – 10″ cut in half for the handles.

Card & Envelope – I started with a Thick White card base of 28cm x 10.5cm and fold in half at 14cm. The patterned paper layer measures 13.5cm x 10cm and is adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Hand-Penned Bundle card & envelope for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut the two dies at once with Cinnamon Cider cardstock, as the intricate die fits neatly inside the border one. I also used the border die (usually to die cut the stamped image) with the Gold & Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper. I placed some Seal+ on the back and wrapped some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon across. Dimensionals were added and adhered to the cardbase. Glue the Cinnamon Cider border die cut onto the Gold die cut.

Next I die cut the inticate die in Basic White card and used my Blends markers to colour the leaves and flowers. Glue this inside the border die cut. I also fussy cut some smaller flowers from another sheet of DSP and glued them to the card. I added some Genial Gems to the centres of the fussy cut flowers and on the DSP card base layer.

To finish, I added a strip of DSP inside the card and the Cinnamon Cider intricate die cut.

Then I needed to make a coordinating envelope using  single piece of 12″ x 6″ DSP. How cool is it to have coordinating items?!!!

HOC Week 6 – Loving Peaceful Deer for quick cards

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

For each of my cards tonight, I have used a Thick Basic White card base. I do this often so I don’t need to add extra layers inside my cards to write my messages, as it is already white. I do add some embellishments and stamping but it’s easy when it’s a white card!

Peaceful Deer Quick Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The Peaceful Prints DSP is one of the Sale·a·bration items that can be selected free with any $90+ order between 3 Aug – 30 Sept. The best part is that it coordinates with the Peaceful Deer Bundle (#156391) which is fantastic value at only $62 for the Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set (#156891) and the Deer Builder Punch (#156390). 

Peaceful Prints DSP SAB21

The Stitched Rectangle Dies have made an appearance again. I just love these dies and use them all the time. Some of the stitched layers have been matted onto Evening Evergreen cardstock. I just thought it went so well with this suite and it is a little more subtle than Basic Black. The deer images are punched with the Deer Builder Punch from the patterned paper and adhered with dimensionals!

Peaceful Deer Quick Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021

The Tasteful Labels dies have been used to cut out the sentiments.

The Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper is also a Sale·a·bration item and wow, this is stunning! Just check out that gorgeous glittery effect it gives, but it is even better in real life.

The Real Red Sheer Ribbon (#153535) is added behind the sentiment on this card.

On the inside, I added a narrow strip of DSP and a sentiment. I added Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to each of the cards to finish them off.
