HOC Week 12 – Bay Window Fancy Fold Card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking 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 and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have a Bay Window fancy fold card. It may look quite complicated but it is actually very easy to make and doesn’t it look impressive?!!!

My card base is Fresh Freesia and the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty paper was added in two small strips down each side on the front of the card.

The images on the front of this card have been fussy cut from one of the sheets of the DSP. The penguin on the right side has been punched out of the sheet of DSP using the Penguin Builder Punch. I also punched out another penguin in Thick Basic White card and glued it behind to add more strength before placing three dimensionals behind it and adding it to the card. This is how the card sits up, by placing the edge of the card behind the penguin.

The Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments was coloured on the shiny side using the Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Marker and glued to the card.

The sentiments are from the Christmas to Remember stamp set. I fussy cut a fox to place on the inside with the sentiment.

CCBH Early Espresso – Blackberry Beauty Pop Up Card & 3D Dahlia Sympathy Card

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 16 – Early Espresso

Early Espresso is a very dark brown and not one that I tend to go to often, so I had to really think about what I was going to create. I received a sample of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP as part of a team share and noticed that Early Espresso was one of the colours! Winning!

So tonight, I have projects using the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper. These papers are gorgeous with the gold foil accents. I am also using the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack which has these lovely gold foil embellishments, including the tag.

The sentiment (Forever Fern stamp set) is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which coordinate perfectly.

But open this card and a surprise awaits!

Pieces of the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack were used on the inside pop up box as well as the Meadow Dies to cut some of the stunning Be Dazzling Specialty paper (free choice during SAB).

My next card is a Sympathy card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

The Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder is used on the base card. The Stitched Rectangle Dies cut from some In Good Taste DSP was placed on an angle in the corner.

The vase is created from the cloche image from Sweets & Treats stamp set, stamped onto Basic White card. The Blending Brushes with Early Espresso ink was applied over one of the stencils from Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks. Once the pattern was on the cloche, I removed the mask and lightly brushed more colour so the white wasn’t so stark. Using Paper Snips, cut it out, turn it upside down and glue to the card. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool. This was then cut into three separate words and added with Mini Dimensionals.

The flower was stamped four times and the leaves twice with Black Memento ink onto Basic White. These were fussy cut (see below image) and then coloured using the Blending Brushes and Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia inks. I also used the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Markers on the petals, before adding some Wink of Stella. Next was to add dimensionals behind the petals and lining them up on top of each other!

Count on Me Rainbow Be Dazzling

Today’s project is so colourful and uses a couple of different colouring techniques. The Be Dazzing Specialty Paper is used and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. These are alcohol based, so it dries quickly when applied to this paper!

I cut the six strips to 14cm x 1.5cm and then coloured them. I applied them to the card base with Seal+.

The Highland Heather scallop circle element is die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies as is the Gold Heart that the bear is holding. The bear is from the Count on Me stamp set, stamped in Memento ink on Basic White card coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pens, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. The ‘happy’ is cut from Highland Heather card with some Foam Adhesive Sheet on the back using the Word Wishes dies.

HOC Week 6 – Loving Peaceful Deer for quick cards

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking 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 and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

For each of my cards tonight, I have used a Thick Basic White card base. I do this often so I don’t need to add extra layers inside my cards to write my messages, as it is already white. I do add some embellishments and stamping but it’s easy when it’s a white card!

Peaceful Deer Quick Card 2 HOC by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia Christmas 2021.

The Peaceful Prints DSP is one of the Sale·a·bration items that can be selected free with any $90+ order between 3 Aug – 30 Sept. The best part is that it coordinates with the Peaceful Deer Bundle (#156391) which is fantastic value at only $62 for the Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set (#156891) and the Deer Builder Punch (#156390).

The Stitched Rectangle Dies have made an appearance again. I just love these dies and use them all the time. Some of the stitched layers have been matted onto Evening Evergreen cardstock. I just thought it went so well with this suite and it is a little more subtle than Basic Black. The deer images are punched with the Deer Builder Punch from the patterned paper and adhered with dimensionals!

The Tasteful Labels dies have been used to cut out the sentiments.

The Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper is also a Sale·a·bration item and wow, this is stunning! Just check out that gorgeous glittery effect it gives, but it is even better in real life.

On the inside, I added a narrow strip of DSP and a sentiment. I added Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to each of the cards to finish them off.
