Framed & Festive Christmas Shaker Card

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoThe Heart of Christmas Blog Hop has been brought to you by the Art With Heart team each Monday for 22 weeks when we started in July. Tonight is our final Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2022 and it’s a little sad it’s over. I hope you have enjoyed all the magnificent projects and built up your stash of Christmas cards too!

For our final Christmas blog hop this year, I’ve created a Shaker card!

The Thick Basic White card base with a layer of Storybook Gnome DSP that has been inked around the edges with Night of Navy ink and a Dauber. Doesn’t it give the paper depth and a beautiful edge?!!!

Next, I die cut 3 of the ovals (Framed Florets dies) in Thick Basic White card. I also used this die to cut the snow hill. I glued the snow hill behind one of the frames and then glued another frame behind it so the hill is wedged between 2 layers. I cut a piece of window sheet using the largest decorative frame and another in Thick Basic White. I only needed the inner pieces from these die cuts. Using my Blending Brushes, I inked the White oval starting with Pool Party, Balmy Blue then Night of Navy inks. To get that snow effect, I placed some Craft White ink refill onto an acrylic block and used my Water Painter to add some water and then tap it across the oval. Put it aside to dry. I used Tear & Tape to glue the window sheet behind the ovals, before adding some Foam Adhesive Strip around the frame. I placed some of the small Effervescent Elements inside the frame before peeling the backing paper off the Foam Adhesive Strips and immediately place the blended coloured oval on top. The shaker element is now secure.

I stamped the ‘Merry Christmas’ in Versamark ink onto Night of Navy card, added White Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool. The Framed and Festive stamp set is used for both sentiments. The trees are cut using the Happy Forest dies and glued to the front of the oval. Wink of Stella was added to the centre tree. Some Starry Sky Baker’s Twine was placed behind the oval which is adhered to the card with Seal+.

On the inside I stamped a Night of Navy sentiment and added some DSP to a white insert.

To finish off, I added some Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels to the centre of the snowflakes.

Sending Smiles, Partial Die Cutting 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 26 – Highland Heather

Today is the first time I have inked up the Sending Smiles stamp set, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long. With the coordinating dies, it makes it super easy to cut out many of the images as well as this Partial Die Cutting Technique.

Colour Combination - Highland Heather

Taking a piece of Basic White Thick card stock, I stamped the four flowers across the top. Place the coordinating die for each one and hold it with washi tape so they don’t move. Place it on your die cutting machine (ensure it is straight), and move the top acrylic plate so it only covers the top half of the dies.  This ensures only that only the top section will cut. After removing the dies, place it in your Trimmer to cut between the images in straight line to remove the excess card or you can use a craft knife and ruler. I then cut a strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and glued it behind the cut flowers. I then stamped the leaves and extra flowers, some directly onto the card and some die cut to add extra dimension using Dimensionals.

Sending Smiles Partial Die Cutting card Highland Heather CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I glued this to an A5 landscape Basic White card, ensuring the gold was against the fold. Now I could trim off the excess at the bottom so it would fit into a C6 envelope. Using the Basic Border die, I cut a strip of Gingham Cottage DSP and glued it to the bottom of the card. The ‘sending’ sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Highland Heather card stock using the Stamparatus, as I like to ink it a couple of times. Sprinkle some Heat & Stick powder over, shake off the excess and melt it with a Heat Tool. Now add some Gilded Leaf and press it on to cover the sentiment. I use a sponge dauber to gently rub off the excess. Cut it out with the coordinating die. ‘Birthday Wishes’ is stamped directly to the card.

You can really see the Gilded Leaf on the sentiment below and the Wink of Stella on the flower centres.

On the inside, I used the left over piece of the Gingham Cottage paper from the front and added it to the bottom of the card, with another stamped flower.

I finished it off with some Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape and the Wink of Stella.

Suspended Book Fold 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 21 – Fresh Freesia

Today I have a fun fancy fold design called a Suspended Book Fold card. It looks complicated, but in fact it is fairly easy to create. I am focusing on the Hues of Happiness DSP, with it’s gorgeous purples and floral images.

Fresh Freesia Gorgeous Grape Basic White

and here is my card – look at those layers?!!

Suspended Book Fold card for Fresh Freesia Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

There are two hinges attached to the 5″ x 7″ card base and the top book fold panels, giving it the ‘suspended’ name.

Suspended Book Fold card for Fresh Freesia Colour Creations Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 top side

The top card layer has a strip of Window Sheet which curves to the front and the focal panel is attached to this. I took a scrap piece of white card, approximately 2½” x 2″ and covered it with the die cut (Happiness Abounds dies) images from the Hues of Happiness papers. A simple sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink onto basic white card and glued to the flowers. I added some Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish!

This card does fold flat, but because it is 5″ x 7″, you will need a larger envelope. You may be wondering where to place your written message, well the back of the card has a large space for that!

Dancing Gnomes

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

My Slimline card today has a fun trio of dancing Gnomes!

I layered some Mint Macaron card on the Thick White card base, then a layer of the snowflake design from the Storybook Gnomes DSP.

Dancing Gnomes Slimline card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The mechanism for the feet to swing, is simply a piece of 2cm x 3cm white card with a hole in the centre. See the nose of the Gnome, well that same die was used to cut the hole (keep these die cut pieces to use for the nose by colouring with the Dark Petal Pink Blends Marker). Glue the mechanism to the back of the feet. Place the feet onto the card and hold the gnome above to work out where you need the feet to be. Add a Mini Dimensional in the centre. Remove the backing paper.

Dancing Gnome mechanism by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022    Dancing Gnome by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

Put together the rest of the Gnomes. Flip them over and add 4 x Mini Dimensionals to the back of the Gnome’s hat (as shown), allowing plenty of room for the mechanism to swing behind the beard. Remove the paper backings and add the Gnome over the mechanism and feet. Ta-da, dancing Gnomes!!! I added some arms to each Gnome later, as I felt they were missing. To create those I used the small mushroom die for the sleeves with the nose for the hands.

Decorate the inside to match the front.

Measurements
Card base: 21cm x 20cm, score short edge @ 10cm
Mint Macaron: 20.5cm x 9.5cm (2)
DSP: 20cm x 9cm (front) & 20cm x 2cm (inside)

This card was inspired by a USA demonstrator, Susan Campfield (link below). I loved her card, although I wanted to create a slimline card to fit a trio of dancing Gnomes and I added arms!!!

Torn card technique

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Today’s card is actually very simple to create. You just need some cardstock, patterned paper, glue and a stamp/ink for the greeting, oh and some embellishments if you wish!

Starting with a Thick Basic White card base with layers of Real Red and Basic White, each 5mm smaller than the previous one. Starting with the Real Red layer, carefully tear the cardstock two thirds of the way across the card. Repeat this with the White layer, but make the starting points slightly larger than the Real Red one. Once you are happy with these, glue the Red & White layers together. (many people only do a single layer of the torn cardstock, but I wanted a white base and top layer to stamp on).

Torn Card Technique by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

Now it’s time for some patterned paper to fit behind the torn section. I actually glued the Boughs of Holly designer paper to the back of the layers so I knew it was positioned correctly. Glue these layers to your card base. I actually cut out these two pieces and rolled up the white section only to form the scroll. I tied some Garden Green Ribbon around the scroll and glued it back onto the card. Finally, stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink and add some Iridescent Rhinestones Jewels.

On the inside, I stamped two more sentiments from the same Brightest Glow stamp set!

Hippos in Love!

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 13 – Cherry Cobbler

Tonight I have lots of Sale•a•bration items to share in this cute Hippos in Love card. I began with a Cherry Cobbler card base and I added the dots by creating a template with the Dots & Spots die. I lay this over the card front and used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker. The only problem was that it bled through to the inside of the card, oops. You’ll see how I fixed that later. The white layer is cut with the Deckled Rectangle Dies, then I put my Wink of Stella into my Cherry Cobbler inkpad and using the lid, flicked it onto the card. It gives a beautiful shimmer effect. Using the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper, I die cut the poles and string (Tree Lot dies, SAB item #159938) and glued them to the card.

Hippest Hippos Saleabration card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, Heart of Christmas 2022

The banner is created using the Alphabest Bundle (Alphabest stamp set and coordinating Best Label Punch) and added each one on a Dimensional.

The Hippest Hippos stamp set (SAB item #159921) are stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the following Blends Combo Markers; Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite and the Colour Lifter. These are die cut using the coordinating Hippo dies (Saleabration item #159928) and added with Dimensionals. The solid hearts are also in this die set and cut from Cherry Cobbler card.

Remember I said how the spots bled through from the front of the card, well I fixed it by creating a pop up and added the 3rd Hippo from the set holding another heart! I almost feel like he should be winking!!!!

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.

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.

Irresistible Fancy Z-Fold card

Today’s card is an irresistible Z-fold design using the gorgeous Misty Moonlight cardstock (which is retiring on 2 May). I am really sad about this, but we need to look at the positives and to the 5 new colours we will gain with the new Annual catalogue. The patterned paper is the Heart & Home 12×12 DSP and the image is from the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home stamp set and Flowers of Home dies).

Blessings of Home Z Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 closed

This entire card uses only 1 sheet of A4 Misty Moonlight cardstock. I share all the Metric measurements at the end of this post so you can make one too!

The image is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and then I coloured the image using my Wink of Stella and the following ink pads; Bumblebee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. It is really hard to photograph the glimmer this gives, but by using the Wink of Stella like a paint brush to gently add colour directly from the inkpad, gives the entire image a glorious shine!
