Abundance of Butterflies

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 38 – Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is one of my least used colours in the Stampin’ Up! range. I haven’t used much of it in my card today, but I actually love how it looks with Misty Moonlight.

I took a piece of the patterned paper from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP pack. I cut the piece to fit my White card base.

Floating & Fluttering Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

I stamped the butterfly image twice in Memento Black ink using the Stamparatus, then die cut them both. Placing them on the card I wanted to add a sentiment through the centre at an angle, so I cut a strip out of the centre of the DSP before gluing the two pieces at either end of the card base.

The butterflies are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Misty Moonlight & Granny Apple Green. They are add with dimensionals to the card.

This sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set, is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I coloured some pearls with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Art Gallery and Gilded Leafing for faux scrappy strip technique

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 37 – Pretty Peacock

These projects tonight use the Art Gallery bundle and some of the coordinating products from the suite.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 1

The Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is so pretty and I really wanted to use some but wasn’t sure where to start. I layered it over some of the Fine Art Floral DSP, but this is the reverse side that was less patterned so the gold of the acetate really shines. I cut the acetate to the same size as the DSP.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia sq

The flower is stamped in So Saffron ink and then Versamark for the second layer, heat and stick powder added, melted gently with the heat tool and then the Gilded Leafing added. I have started using a sponge dauber to rub off the excess gold leafing, as I found the oils in my fingers were leaving it a little dull. The leaves are stamped off once in Pretty Peacock so it isn’t so dark. Die cut these images with the coordinating dies. Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Add dimensionals on the back of the stamped images.

Place the square vellum doilies at an angle in the centre of the acetate then stick the flower and leaves on. Turn the acetate layer over and place Tear & Tape only behind where the flower and sentiment are, so it’s not visible from the front. Now place the acetate onto the DSP.

Wrap the ribbon around both layers of DSP & Acetate and tie in a bow. Add glue to the back and adhere it to the card base. Finally add some of the Butterfly Gems to finish it off.

Art Gallery Bundle 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

For my next card I have used the Gilded Leafing to simulate the technique many call, scrappy strip. By simply cutting the DSP to size, then placing 4 strips of Tear & Tape at angles down the paper. Take off the backing paper and add the Gilded Leafing. I use a sponge dauber to brush off the excess.

The Double Oval Punch makes it so easy to create a sentiment and matt layer for your cards; one an oval and the other a slightly larger scallop oval in the one punch!

Sympathy card using Stampin Up Painted Poppies by Kate Morgan Australia 2021.

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

The poppy is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Poppy Parade & Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Linen Thread is wrapped around three times the patterned paper layer and tied in a bow, before gluing it to a Basic White Thick cardstock base.

Week 35 – Pool Party

This birthday card is so much fun, with the donkey kicking up the pile of presents… I can almost hear it laughing!!!

Darling Donkeys Birthday card for Pool Party Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the Darling Donkeys stamp set (FREE product during Saleabration with $90+ order) and the Kangaroo & Company stamp set, where I have used the presents image. I also stamped this image across the background of my card in Pool Party ink.

The donkey and presents are stamped in Memento ink onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus to line them up perfectly, then die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

The images are coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Real Red. The rhinestones are also coloured with the Pool Party Blends to coordinate with the cardstock. The present at the front, is also stamped with little star type images from the Darling Donkeys set.

Love You, Kangaroo

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 34 – Petal Pink

This is such a pretty, peachy pink tone and I actually quite like it.

So for this card, I first selected one of the sheets from the Subtles 6″x6″ DSP that you can get as part of the joining special at the moment.

I used my snips by opening them up and using one blade to rough up the edges of the patterned paper and fold over the top corner, before gluing it to the Petal Pink card base.

I chose the Kangaroo & Company Bundle next, as I hadn’t inked it up since buying it last year, and it was time to have a play with this cute bundle.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to colour the kangaroo, so I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and dragged the Petal Pink inkpad across it. I watched a Facebook Live recently over @theCraftyCarrotCo where they used this technique. I then stamped the Kangaroo image in Soft Suede ink 3 times, using the Stamparatus to get a nice, deep, rich colour, before die cutting it.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hearts in the pouch are also stamped twice using the Stamparatus in Petal Pink on Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies.

I used Stampin’ Seal+ to add the Square Vellum Doilies, then used Dimensionals behind the kangaroo.

The “love’ and ‘you’ are from the Love You More Than dies, cut in Shimmery White cardstock and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Love You Kangaroo by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Last, I added three of the Elegant Faceted Gems, then decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. I stamped in Petal Pink first using the Stamparatus, then moved the cardstock slightly, and stamped again in Soft Suede ink, twice. Doesn’t it give a fantastic offset stamping shadow effect?!!! I added a strip on the same patterned paper down the side, that I used on the front of the card.

Diorama Fancy Fold card with Forever Greenery and Butterfly Beauty

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 33 – Pear Pizzazz

This is a Diorama fancy fold card that will fold into a C6 envelope, however because of the thickness, it is better in a 16cm² envelope.

The base is Thick White cardstock and the front is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

Diorama Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Forever Greenery patterned paper is perfect for the feature background with the Champagne Foil butterflies [Butterfly Beauty Thinlits]. The Layering Ovals Framelits were used to cut the window and the frame.

The bubbles [Beauty Abounds] are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and the sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. This was stamped 3 times using the Stamparatus to get that darker tone.

Colour Creations Showcase – Pacific Point – Many Messages

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 32 – Pacific Point

The Many Messages stamp set is just that – 19 messages in one stamp!!!

Use the Stamparatus to get the perfect imprint and then cut them all out in one go using the Message Die.

Many Messages Bundle for Pacific Point Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

Once you die cut the stamped image, you are left with a negative piece that I keep and place over my card base to use as a template to insert the pieces back onto my card!

Using the die, I also cut some plain white and Pacific Point card, so I had plain die cuts to insert back onto my card. In the next image you can see I placed 3 of the stamped dies first, then placed some of the blue and white ones around it.

Many Messages Bundle by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

I added a few of the sequins from the Whale of a Time Suite with a glue dot for some extra embellishment.

Many Messages Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The background was created with four 2cm strips of DSP and one in Pacific Point card.

The Brights 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper [155228] will be available in the next Annual catalogue (June 2021), but you can get a pack of each of the colour families DSP packs with your starter kit if you join my team during Sale-a-bration on top of the already great value starter kit!

Flower & Field paper is glorious

Love You Always with Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up! Australia 2021.

A Basic Black card base adds to the dramatic and colourful card.

Yes, another of the patterned pieces from the Flower & Field DSP (earn free during Saleabration 2021). This one really does remind me of a lovely field of flowers, and I chose the Poppy Parade card to add some stamped images, finished off with Gilded Leafing!

The DSP is glued to the Bumblebee matt layer before some of the Bumblebee Ribbon is tied around the layers. A double bow of Bumblebee ribbon and the Gingham ribbon is added. This layer is then glue to the card front.

Love You Always with Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021.

To apply the Gilded Leafing, I stamped the floral images using Versamark ink, added Heat & Stick Powder, shook off the excess before melting the powder with my Heat Tool. Add some Gilded Leafing Flakes over the now sticky Versamark and rub it around with your fingers. Many people use a paint brush, but I find my fingers get a much better effect! Die cut the images and add them to the card with Glue.

This particular sheet was perfect for the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch, which I have used the same colour cardstocks to replicate the printed image.

The Bumblebee Ribbon is wrapped around the Granny Apple Green layer and tied in a bow at the front. The sentiment is one of the Many Messages stamp and I used the Stamparatus to stamp them all as they are 1 stamp, before die cutting them all at one.

My card base is Rococo Rose with a matt layer of Old Olive. I cut a strip of Love You Always Specialty DSP and the same in the True Love DSP (coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers). These were adhered to the Old Olive layer and some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon attached at the join using Tear & Tape. The ribbon is folded over the edges and behind the Olive layer. Now this is glued to the card base. I tied a ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots.
