CCBH Bumblebee – Pierced Blooms in a natural arc

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 7 – Bumblebee

I really love the layout of this card, its simplicity, but also the natural wood textured paper (In Good Taste DSP – which is on sale this month)!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Thick Basic White card was die cut using the Basic Borders die to create that gorgeous stitched curve. Two pieces of A6 DSP were glued together and placed behind the curve to create the card front. By doubling up the DSP, it not only made it more sturdy, but the inside compliments the front of the card! Just Jade and Magenta Madness are the other two card stocks for the floral images. The sentiment is stamped in Bumblebee on some scrap card and die cut using the die from the Pierced Blooms dies. While the card is still in the die, turn it over and use the stylus from the Simply Scored to run around the inside edge. This gives that gorgeous raised edge around the sentiment!

Pierced Blooms & Basic Borders Dies card for CCBH Bumblebee by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

To create the splatters, I placed some Bumblebee ink onto an acrylic block and squeezed my Wink of Stella into it, to make it juicy then tapped it against my fingers to get the splatters, of course with an extra glitter effect.

I made some faux resin dots with a hole punch and some fine tip glue.

On the inside you can see the same DSP as the front. I also added two small different size strips of card for extra colour and some more Stitched Blooms!

I saw this idea from The Paper Papillon and decided to case it but changed up the colours and papers to make it my own.

CCBH Basic Gray – Hand-Penned Petals and Floating Butterflies

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 3 – Basic Gray

Tonight I am using the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle for this card, but I am not using the colours in the Designer Paper that coordinates in the suite. I have created my own colour combination and isn’t it super pretty?!!!

Colour Combination - Basic Gray

Card 1 – My card base, first layer and the die cut pieces are all Basic Gray card. The layer has those stripes across it and I created that by scoring every 2cm on my Trimmer with the scoring blade!

Once I had them done, I used the Basic Gray inkpad and ran it around the edges to get that depth of colour.

Hand-Penned Bundle for Basic Gray CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set) in Basic Gray ink and filled in using the other coloured inkpads. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This is fussy cut with Paper Snips and added to the card with dimensionals.

On the inside, I added another stamped image and die cut the top and bottom with that pretty scallop edge die in the same Penned Flowers Dies. To finish off I added some faux resin dots in coordinating colours that I made using a hole punch and Fine Tip Glue (allow to dry overnight on a Silicone Mat before adding to your card with Multipurpose Glue)!

Card 2 – Many of the products on this card are about to retire and are on sale! If you want to get these items, be quick, because once they are gone, they are gone. The Floating & Fluttering Bundle and this gorgeous Love You Always Specialty DSP are both heavily reduced in price.

Berry Blessings Wreath builder Card

I love the patterned paper that can be earned free during Sale-a-bration 2021 with a $180AUD product order. You also get this stamp set too!!!

I love blueberries and this was the first card I had to make with the Stamp in the Round or Wreath builder technique using the Stamparatus.

Berry Blessings Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia

The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green and the Blueberries are Pacific Point with Night of Navy outline.

Berry Blessings Saleabration 2021 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia angle

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink to coordinate with the matt layers. The Double Oval Punch is a fantastic addition to my craft supplies and I know I will use it heaps, especially when you can cut both ovals at once!

Monthly Creative Showcase: Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is simply stunning with the addition of the gold gilded leafing – WOW, this stuff is just to die for!!!

The Art Gallery Bundle has this gorgeous two step stamped flower which I have inked in Pool Party and then the second layer is stamped in Versamark. Add Heat and Stick Powder, shake off the excess, then heat it with a Heat Tool. This melts the powder so you can then add some of the Gilded Leafing flakes. I use my finger to rub it around over all the sticky powder. I find this the most effective way of adding it efficiently. A little tip with the Gilded Leafing – do not use when you have a fan on, the windows open if it’s breezy outside or it you are about to sneeze. Ask me how I know, LOL. It is so light, it flies everywhere!!!

Art Gallery Bundle and Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment is from the Many Messages Bundle – a wonderful stamp set (all sentiments on 1 stamp) and the die cuts out each one individually in one pass on the Cut & Emboss Machine! Use your Stamparatus to ink up the stamp for a perfect impression.

Art Gallery Bundle and Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The stem is inked in Just Jade ink to coordinate with the Gingham Ribbon, part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

The gorgeous floral patterned paper is one of the items you can choose for FREE with a $90+ order. This 12″x12″ paper is called Flower & Field, and check out the other patterns in the pack!

Peony Peek-a-boo card

Today I have created a fancy fold card using the Prized Peony Suite. These stunningly soft colour tones are so feminine and appealing to the eye, especially with the vellum square doilies for added texture.

I coloured the blooms with Stampin’ Blends Markers; Petal Pink and Old Olive.

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight & Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Colour Creations: Terracotta Tile Floating Frame

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

Tonight’s AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop features Terracotta Tile, the 3rd of our new 2019-2021 In Colours.

This is the Floating Frame Technique that you may have seen everywhere, as it’s been the most popular technique since earlier this year (Google it and you’ll find loads of videos on how to make them).  I was also fortunate enough to have some fellow demonstrator team mates in Auckland early for OnStage Live who were able to purchase a roll of the Glad Press & Seal product to make these projects (it’s not easy to get here in Australia).

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019

I decided to fussy cut all the images of a sheet of the Mosaic Mood DSP one evening during our family movie time 🙂

I love the fact that we actually get 2 cards from this technique too!

Doesn’t it look effective?! I love this technique but make sure you have time and not be in a rush. I added some rhinestones and glitter enamel dots to the spaces for some extra sparkle and interest.

This second card doesn’t have a sentiment yet, as I will add the appropriate one at the right time.

Floating Frame technique using Stampin Up Mosaic Mood DSP by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.

If you are going to have a go at this technique, be warned, you need to have loads of dimensionals and patience! Getting those backings off the dimensionals takes time, hehe.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set, inked with Terracotta Tile.

Colour Creations: Tranquil Tide with Cling Wrap Technique

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 50th and final Stampin’ Up! colour; Tranquil Tide.  I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this blog hop each week and thank Catherine for coordinating it all year long! xx

This card uses the Cling Wrap technique and the Rooted in Nature Suite of products.

The cling wrap technique is using some cling wrap or even an old plastic bag from the supermarket, scrunch it up and drab it into an inkpad and then dab onto the cardstock. Repeat this process with a couple of other colours. I have used Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana & Soft Sea Foam onto a small piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Once I had the coverage I wanted, I stamped the image & sentiment in Black ink.

Rooted in Nature for Colour Creations Tranquil Tide Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019..

Then I placed the card into my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it on the diagonal. No special measurement, just sliced it twice. I glued it onto some tranquil tide card leaving a small gap between each section, before mounting onto some black cardstock. Doesn’t it give a great effect?!!!

The 1/2″ Woven Ribbon (retired) was the perfect addition for my Tranquil Tide card.

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

Rooted in Nature for Colour Creations Tranquil Tide Blog Hop by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2019.

Once the card was finished, I added some Wink of Stella (my favourite product!) over the tree image and added a couple of rhinestones.

On the inside I had to add a layer of tranquil tide then some whisper white to be able to write on. It looked a little plain, so I added a small strip of the same DSP.
