Fancy Two-tone Flora 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 39 – Pool Party

Today’s card shows off the large background die that is part of the Two-tone Flora Bundle. I die cut if from a piece of Fancy Flora DSP which also coordinates as part of this suite of products. I did add Adhesive Sheet to the back of the DSP before die cutting, so I could easily add it to my Night of Navy card base.

Two Tone Flora and Fancy Flora DSP card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

Because the background is so busy (a good busy!!) I added some Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty DSP, die cut with the square from the Stylish Shapes dies and added with Dimensionals. With the lovely shine, it also draws the eyes to the focal flowers stamped in Pool Party and Night of Navy inks. The leaves are stamped off once and then onto white card with the Navy ink and the others are stamped in Versamark on Navy card and White Emboss Powder added & set with my Heat Tool. Some of the Gold Simply Elegant Trim was pulled apart to have those curly pieces for a little extra texture.

On the inside, a white insert with some navy card and the DSP from the front of the card. I haven’t added any sentiments to my card, as it could be used for many occasions. I’ll add that when I know who will be receiving this card!

Some Wink of Stella is added to the party hat and eyes of the owl. Polished Pink In Color Jewels were added for more sparkle. The Basic White insert is stamped with Polished Pink ink and a narrow strip of DSP added across the bottom.

My next card also uses the Adorable Owls along with the Dainty Delight Bundle. The Basic Border Dies were used the cut the edge of the front of the card, before dry embossing it with the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder.

I die cut the Polished Pink flowers and the Gold Foil centres and the leaves. Two of these were cut and joined together to create the wreath effect. The flowers are popped up on Mini Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted using the Heat Tool. Then it was die cut using the banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. This was also added on Dimensionals. The owl is stamped and fussy cut using Paper Snips and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Markers; Pool Party (Dark), Pale Papaya (Dark), SU500, SU600 & SU700. Some of the Fine Tip Glue was added to the eyes for extra shine!

Share a Milkshake Pop Out Gatefold 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 37 – Petal Pink

This fancy Fold design is very easy to create with a few scorelines and two cut lines to create the card base (template at the end of the post).

The belly band holds the card closed and the Something Fancy dies have these 2 nesting dies which were perfect to layer for the front of my card, with the Share a Milkshake stamp set and coordinating dies. The Gingham Cottage DSP is so pretty to decorate the panels and the Country Floral Lane DSP on the belly band and inside the card.

Feminine Share a Milkshake Pop Out Gatefold card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023

The spoon and the bowl are die cut from Silver Foil, perfect for serving this sweet treat.

When the Belly Band slides off, you get a beautiful surprise inside. It opens right up and the centre pops forward. The thinner central panels at the top and bottom can either fold backwards…

or forward like this (which I prefer) but I guess the recipient can decide 😉

Look at the textured white centre panel with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder? How pretty is that?!!!

Here is the template

I was initially inspired by a similar card by Mixed Up Crafts on YouTube, but hers was a much bigger style. I wanted mine to fit into our C6 envelope, so set about making my own template.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using Polished Pink.

Dainty Flowers Cascading Gatefold 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 36 – Pear Pizzazz

Today I have a really fun fancy fold card for you; the Cascading Gatefold card!

The Dainty Flowers DSP is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) reward, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order during SAB (5 Jan- 28 Feb ’23). I have also used the Framed Florets Bundle, so if you purchase this bundle, you can get the papers for free. Believe me, you are going to want these frame dies!!!

Slide the belly band off the card to reveal this cascading feature. The Pear Pizzazz embossed pieces are the Fern 3D textured impressions embossing folder.

You can pull the cascading section forward to sit nicely to display.

Are you wondering where to write your message? Well, on the back there’s plenty of room when you use a White card base!

Cascading Gatefold card Dainty Flowers DSP SAB 2023 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia back

Handy Tip – if you want to heat emboss in a colour that you don’t have the powder for, use the Stamparatus to firstly ink the stamp in Versamark then the ink pad colour of choice, then add Clear Emboss Powder and melt it with your Heat Tool. This also helps when colouring with Blends Combo (alcohol) markers and prevents bleeding!

The sentiment on the front was stamped three times using the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour. Using Blending Brushes to add ink to the feature oval on the front of the card gives a softer touch.

The Thanks a Bunch stamp set is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) item, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order.

This card idea was case’d from a card by Mikaela Titheridge (UK). I just loved her design and thinking outside the box and turning those carrots upside down to create trees! Here in Melbourne, we sort of missed our Spring season, as it was very wet and cooler than normal. We now have Summer arrive with some crazy heatwaves.

Thanks a Bunch alternate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023.

I took a piece of Thick Basic White card and die cut it using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I did my Balmy Blue watercolour wash for the sky and and stamped the grass in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. The flowers are Poppy Parade. The trees are stamped in Shaded Spruce and the trunks are Soft Suede, using the tip of the smaller carrot stamp! I took two smaller dies and placed them over the image and added a little washi tape to the smaller one to hold it in place. Carefully remove the larger one and run the card through your die cutting machine.

Thanks a Bunch alternate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023 layers

With that slightly larger die, cut a Pear Pizzazz layer. I adhered the centre piece to the Pear Pizzazz layer and then both onto the main stamped panel, before adhering it to a Shaded Spruce card base. On the inside and the envelope, I stamped some grass, flowers and a couple of the smaller carrots for trees! The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut with Snips and added with Mini Dimensionals. I coloured some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Poppy Parade Blends Marker and added them amongst the flowers. Do you see them?

Seaside Bay and Adorable Owls

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 34 – Pacific Point

Tomorrow the excitement continues with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb), where you earn free product with every $90 that you spend! Do you have a list of products that you have your eyes on? Tonight, I’ll share a suite that I fell in love with straight away when I saw this new catalogue we received at our event in Sydney in mid-November.

The By The Bay Suite has a Seaside Bay stamp set & dies bundle, Balmy Blue & White Ribbon, Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls embellishments and some stunning By the Bay SDSP with gold foiling and Pearl Coating on it!

My card tonight, I’m using the designer papers and the Seaside Bay Bundle.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

I started with a Pacific Point 29cm x 10.5cm card base, folded in half at 14.5cm. I cut 3 strips of different papers that measure 14cm x 3cm and glued them to the card front.

Seaside Bay card for Pacific Point CCBH by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023

I die cut the shell twice in Gold Foil and glued them together. The sentiment is stamped on Basic White card and a banner cut on the left using Paper Snips, before sponging Pacific Point ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. This was glued to the card and the shell on top with a Flat Adhesive-backed Pearl added.

On the inside, I added a Basic White card insert, sponged the edges and added an offcut of the DSP and some Pacific Point card to the bottom edge, along with a couple of smaller Gold Foil shells.

Week 33 – Old Olive

This is our final Colour Creations blog hop for 2022, but I hope you will join us again on 4 January 2023 when we return!

Today, I have used the Cottage Rose Bundle with the coordinating Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper. I have gone with some neutrals in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso with Old Olive. All of the feature images are stamped and die cut from Crumb Cake card. The sentiment and main floral image are stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I really like using the “Best Wishes” sentiment, as it can be for many occasions; birthday, sympathy, farewell, wedding, etc.

Best Wishes card using Stampin Up Cottage Rose Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

I used my Dark Crumb Cake Blends Marker around the edges of the main image so it really stands out! I used a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso ink around the sentiment which is cut using the Double Oval Punch as well as on the tips of the die cut flowers behind the focal image.

The card base is Old Olive. The next layer is a piece of the DSP cut with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies, then I coloured the leaves with the Light Old Olive Blends Marker. I took a Blending Brush and added ink across the whole DSP piece. I inked one side of the Merry Melody 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Early Espresso, placed the DSP inside and ran it through my Emboss machine. Then I used the dauber to add ink around the edges before gluing to the card base. Some printed Vellum Layering Designs was added to soften the background.

A Silver piece of Simply Elegant Trim was pulled apart to separate all the fibres. This was something that Shelli Gardner (cofounder of Stampin’ Up!) shared with us during our recent demonstrator only event and it’s such a neat trick!

Week 32 – Night of Navy

Today, I have some very simple masculine cards for you to show how you can create three card bases from three pieces of different DSPs. I’m using the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper with a Night of Navy card base and Basic White matt layer (5mm smaller than the card base).

IMG_8737

Take three different patterns of paper and cut down to 12.5cm x 9.5cm.  Place all 3 pieces together in your Trimmer at an angle. There are no right or wrong measurements here. Just as long as you cut twice holding the patterned papers together. Once they are cut you can place them down ensuring one piece of each pattern is on each card. Glue them to your white layer.

IMG_8738

I am sharing a sneak peek of some new alphabet dies, Alphabet A La Mode, that are coming in the New Year and they are a must have item!

Craft with Kate Morgan tip for using Alphabet dies, Stampin Up Australia 2023I placed some Adhesive Sheet behind some Navy and White card scraps to allow the die cuts to become stickers without the mess of using glue. Using the H, B, 2 & U dies, place them in a row together – grab some washi tape to hold them in place. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s easier this way when cutting 3 times!

Peel the backings off the dies to reveal the sticky side and place them onto your cards.

IMG_8739

Finally I added some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. There were 3 colours, so I grouped them on each card. I think these are more masculine than many of the other embellishments.

On the inside, I placed a Basic White piece of card with a strip of the DSP across the bottom.

Here they are side by side

Week 30 – Mint Macaron

Initially I created a fancy fold card for this post, but as I began to type, I realised I had used a retired SAB designer paper, oops. I’ll share that card with you tomorrow!

Today’s card is created using a new stamp set, Beautifully Happy, that I received at our recent demonstrator event, OnStage. This stamp set is a Sale•a•bration item that can be earned free with a qualifying order in Jan/Feb 2023. It is a distinktive stamp, meaning it gives a photo realistic style with lot of depth and dimension without needing two or three step stamping.

Sneak Peek of SAB Beautifully Happy & Framed Florets by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 Jan-Apr Mini

A Mint Macaron card base with a layer of Gingham Cottage DSP which has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die through my die cutting Machine. The Framed Florets die is cut in Basic White and Orchid Oasis ink applied with a Blending Brush. A double bow of Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon is added with a Glue Dot.

Sneak Peek of SAB Beautifully Happy & Framed Florets by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 Jan-Apr Mini.

The floral image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Mint Macaron, Orchid Oasis and Mango Melody inks. I used Paper Snips to fussy cut the image and applied Mini Dimensionals to add it to my card. The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut also and added the same way with Mini Dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the flowers (it doesn’t show in the photos). Some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels are added for some extra sparkle!

On the inside I added a Basic White layer with an offcut of the Stitched Greenery embossed Gingham Cottage DSP.
