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

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 😉

Sneak Peek Blessings of Home

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 25 – Mango Melody

Tonight I am sharing a sneak peek of the new Heart & Home Collection; including the Blessings of Home stamp set, Flowers of Home dies, Heart & Home DSP and Classic Matte Dots which will be available in the new January–June 2022 Mini Catalogue available early in the new year. I was very fortunate to attend the OnStage (virtual) event last weekend for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators only. This was one of the Collections that we could preorder last month to use during the event. Mango Melody is not one of the colours in the suite, but I thought it actually worked quite well with this particular patterned paper.

IMG_7050

Mango Melody is a very bright colour and not one I use a lot, but by using it with the watercolour technique, can create a softer tone. This is the only ink colour I used on these petals and Garden Green for the leaves and stem. The outline is stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Watercolour Paper. Some Wink of Stella was added to the centre of each flower.

IMG_7052

On the inside I added a layer of Mango Melody card under the white layer with an offcut of the same DSP from the front.

IMG_7053

The Square Vellum Doilies over the Garden Green die cut centre piece (Scalloped Contours dies) adds a layer for the image to really stand out. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody ink on white card and end ends cut at an angle before popping up on Mini Dimensionals.

Feminine Magenta Peony

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 24 – Magenta Madness

This is a really bold colour and can be a bit overwhelming, so tonight I have toned it right down by colouring this flower using the Wink of Stella directly with the ink from the lid of the inkpad. This gives a watercolour look, but also gives it a beautiful sparkle at the same time (not that you can see it in the photos)!!!

The Prized Peony stamp set has this gorgeous large stamped image that is inked in Misty Moonlight ink.

Prized Peony Feminine Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The patterned paper is called Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and I’ve used the Scalloped Contours dies to the centre piece and the Basic White layer. I made some Faux Resin Dots in Magenta Madness and added some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, tied in a bow.

Did you have a win on the Melbourne Cup yesterday? I don’t follow the horse racing but I am thankful for the day off work and yesterday’s weather was glorious!

Week 23 – Just Jade

This card is created using the product suite, Bloom Where You’re Planted. The Basic Border dies were used to cut either end of the Gray Granite card to create a panel. I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to create the pattern with the same colour ink.

Plentiful Plants Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hanging basket is die cut from the Silver Foil and the bow is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribobn Combo Pack. The foliage is stamped in Just Jade and Soft Succulent. The front plant has Wink of Stella on it, but it doesn’t show very well in the photo. The pot in the hanging basket is stamped in Gray Granite.

On the inside a piece of the DSP is added along the bottom and die cut pot and plant from the patterned paper were added with a stamped sentiment.

CCBH Highland Heather – Sparkly Playful Alphabet

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 22 – Highland Heather

Tonight I am focusing on using the Playful Alphabet dies as my focus. I chose the Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers and the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP pack, which is the purple in the background. The Pale Papaya panel lightens the card up a little more with the coordinating colour ribbon.

Playful Alphabet Feminine Handmade card for Highland Heather CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I just adore this piece of floral paper and the Scalloped Rectangle die is perfect for gorgeous feminine cards.

Before die cutting the letters, I placed some adhesive foam sheet on the back of the Highland Heather cardstock before running it through with the dies. This way, you just peel the backing off the foam and adhere each letter to the card (lining them up with a ruler). I really like how they are right justified and it also makesd it easier to get the spacing just right 😉

As you can sort of see in this photo, I added some Wink of Stella for extra sparkle to each of the letters.

On the inside, I added the extra piece of the floral paper (which I did cut the centre out of for the front). Then I added some white card to write my message.

CCBH Gray Granite – Plentiful Plants

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 21 – Gray Granite

Tonight I am using the Plentiful Plants Bundle which I got for my birthday recently! I don’t have any of the patterned papers that coordinate with it, but I found some leafy designs in the Christmas papers, Painted Christmas DSP that was perfect, along with the In Good Taste DSP.

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The macrame hanging basket was die cut using the In Good Taste DSP. The same pattern is in the background across the card. The pot is stamped in Gray Granite ink and the plants in Soft Succulent ink. The scallop border die is from the Contours dies, set to be a firm favourite!

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 detail

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with my Heat Tool. I added a gorgeous Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon bow and In Color Jewels.

On the inside, I added some more coordinating plants in a plant stand in the bottom corner.

Is that a bear in there?!

Week 20 – Granny Apple Green

Today’s card has a very general, but pretty theme, and could be used for so many different occasions, as there are no sentiments or DSP on it!

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink. Anyway, enough mumbling on, here is my card!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The narrow strip at the bottom of the Granny Apple Green Stitched Greenery layer, is some of the ‘darker’ Silver Foil sheet. The bear was stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the Crumb Cake & Polished Pink Blends Marker Combo Packs, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The Gold Thread wrapped around the card has retired (oops), I was sure it was still available. Anyway, you could use any metallic thread you may have. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the larger flowers for more sparkle.

I finished it off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels that I adore and almost finished my pack. I might have to add some more to my next order!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 sq

I love how the piercing in the background and the Pierced Blooms die cut images go together so well. This card was inspired by Nikki Spencer who used different flowers and colour combination, but I loved the layout!

Layering Circles cards

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 19 – Gorgeous Grape

Today I have two cards using the Layering Circles Dies that I have been wanting to try for a while now. But let’s talk about this gorgeous purple tone and the colour combination I have chosen, inspired from the Hand-Penned Suite!

Colour Combination - Gorgeous Grape Blushing Bride Mint Macaron

By cutting the following Layering Circles Dies, two cards can be made:
1⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)
1⅞” (2 x Blushing Bride)
2⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)

Each of these circles are cut in half and then layered on top of each other to create these simple designs. This first card is put back together in a circle shape!

Layering Circles card 1 with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Cover the join with a sentiment (stamped on Tasteful Labels dies) and some Gold & Mint Macaron ribbons. I also added some die cuts in Gold Shimmer Vellum to add for a little extra shine.

Layering Circles cards with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

My second card is pretty much the same, but I have offset the two half layered circles. I love the effect this gives and a totally different look.

Layering Circles card 2 with Hand Penned for CCBH Gorgous Grape by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Add the sentiment across where the two halves join and I also added a stamped flower and ribbon bow.

CCBH Garden Green – Unique Corner Punch Layout

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 18 – Garden Green

Tomorrow is the last chance to earn FREE product as the Saleabration period ends. Tonight I am using one of these products, the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, my favourite SAB item!

Be Dazzling Specialty Paper Saleabration 2021 Kate Morgan Australia

The Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the coordinating Hand-Penned DSP have been favourite products from the 2021-22 Annual catalogue.

Unique Corner Punch Layout using Stampin Up Hand-Penned by Kate Morgan, Australia 2021 SAB

I started with a Thick Basic White Card base, 10.5cm x 28cm folded in half at 14cm. The next Garden Green layer is 13.5cm x 10cm.

The Hand-Penned DSP is 13cm x 9.5cm. Take the Label Me Lovely punch, and insert it into one corner of the DSP with the point meeting in the centre of the punch.

Label Me Lovely Punch

Now do the same on the opposite corner. Flip your punched designs over and place back where you punched them from. Now glue these to the Garden Green layer before decorating with a centre piece.

This is the largest of the Stitched So Sweetly dies with a Be Dazzling die cut from the Penned Flower dies. The sentiment, Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, is fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

It was a difficult decision to decide which way to glue down my DSP design, so I repeated the process, but the opposite papers. So here is my second card.

Unique Corner Punch Layout using Stampin' Up Hand-Penned by Kate Morgan, Australia 2021 SAB

I decorated this one very similar to the first, but added some Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and a different sentiment. This sentiment and the background image on the Garden Green die cut, are both from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

The Be Dazzling leaves and scallop border are also from the coordinating dies.

Which one is your favourite?

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 17 – Flirty Flamingo

Tonight I have a Triple Point fancy fold card with the In Symmetry stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry DSP. This looks quite complicated, but in actual fact it wasn’t that hard to create. I wanted my card to fit into my envelopes that I make (see Tutorials page), so I made my card base 10.5cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm. I also used two pieces of DSP 10cm x 10cm.

Triple Point Fancy Fold card using Sweet Symmetry DSP 2021 by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

I made this into a birthday card for my close friend, Angela, hence the sentiment on the front of the card!

When the card is open, there is plenty of space to write your message. I stamped this sentiment using the Sweets & Treats stamp set.
