Otterly Awesome

Today I want to share one of the cutest stamp sets that will be availableto earn for FREE from 4th January 2022 during Saleabration with a $90 product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

Awesome Otters is a cling set of 6 stamps; 4 images and 2 sentiments. I have also used another SAB item in the patterned paper, Simply Marbellous 6″ x 6″ DSP. It was perfect for the water effect I wanted on this card!

Awesome Otters card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The Picture This die was used to die cut the circles. I sat it over the white base card to work out where to stamp the otters. Once I had stamped and coloured them (Watercolor Pencils & Blender Pen), I glued the DSP to the card front. The smaller circles I replaced but on a dimensional rather than gluing.

Aren’t they otterly adorable?!!!

On the inside, I stamped and coloured another adorable otter and placed a strip of DSP down one side.

Peaceful Deer Masculine card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The Deer Builder Punch is so easy to use with the Silver Foil. I added one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind it on two strips of the Whimsy and Wonder Specialty DSP (unfortunately this has sold out, but you could use any patterned paper really).

The sentiment is stamped on an offcut piece of Basic White cardstock and and snip the ends to reflect a banner.

Week 28 – Mint Macaron

I just adore this gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper with it’s shiny accents and I have used it in different ways on this card. A strip matted on some Polished Pink cardstock down the centre then a die cut piece behind the sentiment. Both of these are cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The presents are cut from the patterned paper too!

The word Joy was stamped multiple times and I just eyeballed it. You could probably use the Stamparatus to line them up properly if you wanted to.

Here are a few more designs using this same suite of products; the first few are the same design with various patterned papers from the same pack. Very easy for making multiples of and just add different embellisments.

Poinsettia Christmas

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 27 – Merry Merlot

Tonight we are featuring this gorgeous deep tone, which reminds me so much of a rich glass of red wine!!

Poinsettia Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My card base and poinsettia flowers are Merry Merlot with Evening Evergreen leaves (these are die cut with the same die). The twigy pieces are cut from the Snowy White Velvet Sheets and the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Papers. I used the White Chalk Marker to add dots to the petals.

Poinsettia Christmas card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 detail

The background layer is Shimmery White cardstock (for extra sparkle), dry embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D TIEF in the Cut & Emboss Machine. Two corners rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch.

The Tailor Made Tag dies cut out the sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) and I curled it around a pen before adhering it to the card on dimensionals.

The inside is decorated in a similar way with two corners rounded, a simple sentiment stamped with a poinsettia in the bottom corner.

Gingerbread Cookies for Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening since early July, I have taken 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 for the final time this year and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team. I cannot believe where these last 22 weeks have gone, but I have enjoyed every minute of creating Christmas projects for you.

Do you love gingerbread cookies at Christmas time? I do, and that is exactly what I have added to my card… well, not the real thing, but what looks like the cookies I make and ice with my children every year!!!

Gingerbread Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Gingerbread dies and Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with some Heartwarming Hugs DSP create some cute cards for the festive season. The Kraft paper creates the perfect cookie with some Basic White and Real Red icing on top!

The sentiment (Peaceful Deer stamp set) is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink to coordinate with the card base.

Sneak Peek of 2022 Mini catalogue product, In The Moment!

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 26 – Melon Mambo

Tonight I have a little sneak peek of a new stamp set available in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, called In the Moment Cling Stamp Set.

In the Moment stamp set for Melon Mambo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers. I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper (the same piece as the scalloped frame), fussy cut it and glued it to the stamped image. This technique is called Paper Piecing. Once this was done, I felt it needed a lovely blue sky, so I used the Blending Brushes with the Pool Party ink and the cloud shape from the Basic Borders dies to create the sky. I continued this to the bottom of the white card, as this lady is on a top balcony of a Gold Coast highrise apartment on holidays, enjoying a 5 o’clock wine (are you with me?!!) I think all this time in lockdown has me yearning for a holiday 😉

This is the inside with more clouds at the top, a sentiment and some scalloped edging at the bottom using the two patterned papers and the Scalloped Countours dies.
