Week 31 – Mossy Meadow

The front of this card has a simple layout of Polished Pink Matt behind the Awash in Beauty DSP. These two layers are glued together, run them through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn 3D Textured embossing Folder, before gluing to the Mossy Meadow card base. The sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink, Silver Emboss Powder added before being Heat set and cut out with the coordinating dies. The Black Mini Dimensionals are added and a Sweet Sorbet Ribbon Bow placed behind it. Silver Festive Pearls added last to tie in with the Silver embossing!

Week 29 – Merry Merlot

Today’s card was inspired by Amy Shihinski (in Canada), but I needed to change it up to suit our Metric measurements here in the South Pacific. If you wish to see Amy’s measurements, there will be a link at the end of this post.

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday on Sunday. He accompanied me to Sydney so I could attend OnStage on Saturday with 500 crafty friends, he spent the day wandering around Sydney by himself and had a wonderful time. Not sure why he wouldn’t attend OnStage with me, LOL!

Anyway, I carefully carried this card all the way to Sydney in my luggage to surprise him on Sunday morning.

I have used the Brewed for You Bundle and the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Brushed Metallic Foil.

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 front.

The stamping is all done in Black Memento, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot inks and die cut using the coordinating Brewed dies. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint was added to the beer glasses and heated with the Heat Tool to activate.

Here is the real wow of this card when you open it!

Masculine 3D Shutter Card Brewed For You by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

You may notice that the sentiments and the beer glass look a little different on the inside, as they were not going to fit on the card. Never fear, I just adapted. The glass wasn’t going to fit as it was too tall, so I cut the top off down to the beer level and added the froth! The sentiments across the centre panels, I had to carefully ink up individual words, covering the ones I didn’t want, covered with some washi tape (remember to remove the tape before stamping onto the card though!).

Here are my measurements (metric):
Merry Merlot A5 card base: 14.8cm x 21cm, scored in half @ 10.5cm
Basic White Card insert: 20cm x 14cm (see image below)
Merry Merlot Matt layers: 4.5cm x 4.5cm (8), 2cm x 3.5cm (4), 4.5cm x 3.5cm (2)
Lights Aglow SDSP layers: 4cm x 4cm (4)
Gold Foil layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 1.5cm x 3cm (4)
Basic White layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 4cm x 3cm (2)

Week 28 – Melon Mambo

The excitement is really growing now, as I am heading to Sydney on Friday to see all my SU friends at our OnStage event for demonstrators. This is the first time for 3 years (thanks Covid) that we will be able to be there in person, yippee. There’s nothing like getting together in a huge room with 500 fellow crafters – can you imagine the hype?!!!

Anyway, more about that next week, but for now we need to focus our minds on Melon Mambo.

The Sending Smiles Bundle is a beauty. The flowers are stamped with the aid of the Stamparatus, in Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry inks. The leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. Using a Sponge Dauber to add the Rich Razzleberry ink to the edges of the flowers as the final step, gives it a lovely tone. The same was done with the leaves and the Evening Evergreen ink.

The white stamped layer is die cut using the Deckled Rectangle dies. This is adhered to a Gold Brushed Metallic Stitched Rectangle die and this glued onto a Melon Mambo layer on the dramatic, Basic Black card base.

The ‘thanks’ is die cut in Basic Black card and Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock. Before die cutting the Gold, I remembered to add Adhesive Sheet so it can be adhered like a sticker to the black layer. This is glued to the card. Some Glossy Dots Assortment were added at the end.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Merry Merlot.

Texture Chic Trifold Shutter 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 27 – Mango Melody

This Trifold Shutter card is quite easy to make, but it’s all the layering pieces that takes the time to cut and glue together. I am using the Perched in a Tree Bundle with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper.

My card base is Mango Melody, the matts are Basic Black and the patterned papers as mentioned above.

Trifold Shutter card using Stampin Up Texture Chic & Perched in a Tree Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

I stamped the bird in Black Memento ink onto Basic White card.  I placed the coordinating die over the top and held it down with some washi tape. Before cutting it out, I used my blending brushes to add the colouring; Mango Melody, Pool Party & Petal Pink. This was so that the white border around the image remained white once it was die cut!

I covered the bird with Wink of Stella to stand out even more. Lastly I added some gold Festive Pearls.

The branch is cut from Evening Evergreen card and the floral spray was cut from Basic White card and Petal Pink ink added with the blending brushes. The leaves were coloured the same way and then I added small amounts of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue, allowing it to almost dry, before adding the Gilded Leafing.

The next panel has the sentiment stamped in Memento Black ink and cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. The Basic Black layer is one size rectangle larger. I had a small strip of the patterned paper left over, so I used my Paper Snips to cut banners at either end and glued it to the black layer. The sentiment layer is added on Mini Dimensionals.

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.

Week 25 – Gray Granite

Today’s masculine card features the Brewed for You Bundle and He’s the Man DSP. I started with a Gray Granite card base 21cm x 14cm scored @ 6.5cm, 10.5cm. I stamped the ‘hey, there!’ (Charming Sentiments stamp set) multiple times down the left hand side using the Stamparatus. I was going to use the hinge technique, but it was going to be too far apart, so I placed some grid paper under the card and used the Squares to line up my stamping. I moved the card up 2 more squares and stamped again and repeat. Open the card flat and die cut the circle (Stylish Shapes die), centred along the first scoreline. Now you can glue the left panel to the inside of the card.

Cut another circle in Basic White card and glue it to fit inside the front of the card. The He’s The Man DSP is used on right side and the reverse of this side. I cut a very thin strip of Brushed Metallics card in the Gold and glued it down the edge of the DSP on the front.

The wine glasses are stamped and die cut and the red wine is created by using a Blending Brush and Merry Merlot ink. The glass on the inside is empty with the sentiment ‘Another round for your birthday’!

Week 24 – Granny Apple Green

When it was time to create with Granny Apple Green, the colour reminds me of freshly cut grass.
I recently purchased the Beautiful Shapes dies which includes this tiny hexagon, and it reminded me of a soccer ball, perfect for my masculine card!!

Birthday Soccer Card with Beautiful Shapes Granny Apple Green CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The hardest part in creating this card, was cranking the cardstock/die through the machine multiple times until I had enough hexagons to create my soccer ball pattern. These were added with Stampin’ Seal to a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock. Once they were all adhered with a small gap between them, I cut it down to size to fit onto the Basic Black layer which was glued to the card base.

The coordinating dies cut it out before adding it with Dimensionals!

Week 22 – Garden Green

Today I am using the Grassy Grove Bundle. The torn paper technique, recently shared with a member of The Crafty Carrot team, is super effective. I’ve used it in the background with Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape & Soft Succulent.

Grassy Grove with Torn Background card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The dies were used to cut out the tree layer in Garden Green cardstock, before dry embossing it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. The I took a Blending Brush and added colour to the top half to give it a little more depth. The tree layer is added to the card with Mini Dimensionals/Adhesive Strips.

The deer are die cut from some Brushed Metallic cardstock and added with Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.

Grassy Grove with Torn Background card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 side

On the inside I added some stamped tree images and a sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set. onto a Basic White insert.

Here is a surprise card to share with you, as I have extra time this week while on school holidays. The Stitched Greenery die creates the beautiful background with the Hues of Happiness DSP doesn’t need anything extra, as it is stunning on its own!

The Very Vanilla card is 10.5cm x 24.9cm, score at 8.3cm & 16.6cm. The sentiment is from the Blessings of Home stamp set. This is a very easy card to create with a few basic products.

Week 20 – Flirty Flamingo

Today I really wanted a dramatic look, so I started with a Basic Black card base. I took an acrylic block, and added some White Craft ink refill. Using the Water Painter brush I squeezed some water onto the ink and flicked it onto the card base.

I took a piece of the Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and applied inks using Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo. Once I had a lovely mix of colour, I used the Water Painter again with just Melon Mambo ink and flicked it over the watercolouring. Place this aside to dry.

Butterfly Wings watercolour card for Flirty Flamingo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The Brilliant Wings dies were used to cut out the butterflies, which were adhered to the card using Multipurpose Glue just along the body so the wings could sit up.

The sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink onto black card. I added Silver Emboss Powder and heat set it. Cut it out with the coordinating Sending dies. I tied a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim in a big bow and placed it on the centre of the largest butterfly, then added the sentiment over the top on Black Mini Dimensionals.

To finish off, I coloured some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends Marker. Some Black and White Pearlized Enamel Effects were also added in groups of three for extra interest.

On the inside a Flirty Flamingo layer with a Basic White layer were added with another water coloured butterfly.
