CCBH Flirty Flamingo – Triple Point fancy fold 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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 15 – Daffodil Delight

The Hand-Penned Petals Bundle is the focus of tonight’s card, along with the very pretty Hand-Penned DSP. As you can see my card base is Daffodil Delight.

Hand-Penned DSP

Inlay Technique Fancy Fold card using Hand-Penned Bundle for Daffodil Delight CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Penned Flower dies which are part of this bundle, were used to die cut the floral images. The Gold Foil one is adhered behind the front panel and the Basic Black background adhered to the front of the panel. I die cut the intricate die in Basic White card, as well as Blushing Bride,Daffodil Delight & Gold Foil. I removed the inside pieces and placed them inside the white die cut for the inlay technique. I used my Blends Markers (Highland Heather, Mint Macaron), to colour the leaves and smaller flowers.

The Word Wishes dies are are used to cut the sentiment on the card front. I cut it multiple times, 4 times in Basic Black card and once in Gold Foil and glued them all together.

Stamp the floral image on the white panel with Daffodil Delight ink and the sentiment in Memento Black ink. You can place the white panel on the back or the inside of the card. I chose to glue it to the back to cover up where my panel joined the card base. The flowers have Wink of Stella on them for a gorgeous shine!

CCBH Crushed Curry – You can Count on Me

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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

Count on Me Window Card CCS Crushed Curry Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia inside

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

CCBH Crumb Cake – Delicate Dahlias and Feels Like Home

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 13 – Crumb Cake

I have chosen a soft colour palette for tonight’s card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This is one of the free items in Sale•a•bration brochure with any $180+ order. This stamp set has the outline for the flower and also a full image stamp to colour inside the lines. I found using the Stamparatus was much easier to line the stamps up!

Delicate Dahlias Photopolymer stamp set (156601)

Colour Combination - Crumb Cake

My card base is Blushing Bride, embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the outline of the dahlia flower onto a post-it note and cut it out with Paper Snips, on the inner edge of the stamping. Then I took an A5 piece of Basic White cardstock and stamped one of the dahlia flowers then placed the post-it note over the top and stamped the second flower and the third flower using the same process.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

I stamped the outline of the flowers in Crumb Cake and the centres are Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card and cut out with Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is smaller than the punch, so I placed it back in the punch and took more off each end. I used a sponge dauber to softly add ink around the edges.

Delicate Dahlias Sympathy Card SAB Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia closeup

The wood frame is the In Good Taste DSP and die cut using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the smaller Stitched Rectangle Die again to cut out the stamped flowers to insert into the frame. The frame and the sentiment are all added to the card base on dimensionals.

Card 2 is for Father’s Day! Have you made your cards yet?!!! Father’s Day is not far away, as in Australia, we celebrate it on 5th September. As I need to mail my cards (possibly both this year if we are still in lockdown), I needed to get them in the mail this week. So for my card tody, I am creating a fancy fold with the Feels Like Home stamp set.

Open the front of the card to begin revealing your centre message panel.

and the next to reveal the message inside with some In Good Taste DSP on the side panels. These sentiments are from the Hats Off stamp set.

Here is a close up of the image on the card front, stamped with Versamark Ink with White Emboss Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool. I was thinking of colouring it, but I loved the crispness of the white against the Crumb Cake, so I left it. The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Feels Like Home Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up SAB Australia 2021

Basic measurements:
Crumb Cake Card: 10.4cm x 14cm & 9cm x 9cm
Crumb Cake Card: 10.5cm x 28cm, scored at 10.5cm & 21cm
Thick White card: 13.5cm x 10cm & 10cm x 10cm
In Good Taste DSP: 10cm x 10cm & 10cm x 6.5cm (2)

Update: Want to hear a funny story? Actually, it’s not funny at all and I want to cry. We have a 5 month old puppy, Arlo, who loves to chew… well, he got to my card (that was in an envelope) and this is all that’s left of it, along with the chewed up paper/envelope 😢 Back to the drawing board to create another one for my dad, grrr. Lucky I still have a week to get it made and that I had photographed this one already!!!

CCBH Coastal Cabana – All For Baby card with Decorative Mask background

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 12 – Coastal Cabana

Tonight’s card is using the All for Baby Bundle, which is a recent addition to my supplies. I don’t actually have a lot of baby style stamp sets, but this one is rather cute with the distinctive stamps that create the shading/tone when you stamp the image – how clever is that?!!

All For Baby CCS Coastal Cabana Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Coastal Cabana card base is covered with the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks, new in the Annual Catalogue. They are a great way to add patterns with the Blending Brushes and inkpads without using DSP. I also used the same technique on the Basic White card cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. Although, this time, I left the card in the die and placed the Mask over the top so that it left the gorgeous, crisp, white scallop border. I wrapped around some White 3/8″ (1cm) Glittered Organdy Ribbon and tied it in a bow, before adding the centre panel on dimensionals. The images are stamped in Fresh Fressia and Soft Suede inks, die cut and added on dimensionals. The pegs are die cut from the new Silver Foil 12×12 Specialty Pack and also added on some cut-down dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped another bodysuit and die cut the little pocket in Coastal Cabana card and added it to the corner with a lovely stamped sentiment.

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 11 – Cinnamon Cider

This week I have more Hand-Penned Petals Bundle projects, starting with a Post It Note Holder! These are great little gifts to have on hand to give to family and friends and Cinnamon Cider happens to be one of the colours in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Hand-Penned DSP

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped with Versamark, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set with a Heat Tool. I coloured it with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya & Cinnamon Cider. I also used the Colour Lifter to dot on the Cinnamon Cider bloom to give it a little extra texture. Then I die cut it using the coordinating Penned Flower Dies. Some Genial Gems are added as I always love some gems!

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 side

4 pieces of DSP are placed on the front, the back and two on the inside; one under the post it notes and the other you can see below. A strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper is added to the front and inside panel.

Post It Note Holder using Hand-Penned Bundle for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 open

Basic Instructions
Cardstock – 7″ x 3¼”, score each end at 3¼” & 2 pieces 3¼” x ¾” for reinforcement.
DSP – 3″ x 3″ (4 pieces).
Ribbon – 10″ cut in half for the handles.

Card & Envelope – I started with a Thick White card base of 28cm x 10.5cm and fold in half at 14cm. The patterned paper layer measures 13.5cm x 10cm and is adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Hand-Penned Bundle card & envelope for Cinnamon Cider CCS by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut the two dies at once with Cinnamon Cider cardstock, as the intricate die fits neatly inside the border one. I also used the border die (usually to die cut the stamped image) with the Gold & Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper. I placed some Seal+ on the back and wrapped some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon across. Dimensionals were added and adhered to the cardbase. Glue the Cinnamon Cider border die cut onto the Gold die cut.

Hand-Penned Bundle card & envelope for Cinnamon Cider CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Next I die cut the inticate die in Basic White card and used my Blends markers to colour the leaves and flowers. Glue this inside the border die cut. I also fussy cut some smaller flowers from another sheet of DSP and glued them to the card. I added some Genial Gems to the centres of the fussy cut flowers and on the DSP card base layer.

To finish, I added a strip of DSP inside the card and the Cinnamon Cider intricate die cut.

Then I needed to make a coordinating envelope using  single piece of 12″ x 6″ DSP. How cool is it to have coordinating items?!!!

Week 9 – Calypso Coral

Tonight I am using the In Symmetry stamp set, but I don’t have the coordinating designer paper yet, it’s on its way. It doesn’t really matter though, as I have come up with my own colour combination!

Colour Combination - Calypso Coral

I covered my Thick Basic White 5″ x 10″ (folded in half) card base with a piece of the Calypso Coral paper from the Subtles 6″ x6″ DSP pack. Then I cut a layer of Basic Black card to 4¼” x 4¼” and the Thick Basic White layer is 4″ x 4″ to stamp on, using the Stamparatus and the Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique to get the lovely uniform pattern.

In Symmetry card for CCBH Calypso Coral by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped the four Calypso Coral flowers again on some scrap card and fussy cut them out to layer on top with dimensionals for extra depth, before adding a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel to each one. On each of the hearts I added some Wink of Stella. Before gluing the Black and White layers together, I swiped the Calypso Coral inkpad around the edges of the white card.

Week 8 – Cajun Craze

Well, here we are at Cajun Craze, my least used colour in the range! I really struggle with this colour and to me it would be great tone for Terracotta pots, but of course I do not have any stamp sets of this kind!

My next idea is chocolate or coffee, I mean who doesn’t love either of these?!!!! The Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies were the go, along with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment to be stamped on. I had all these done but nothing in the background. I tried lots of different papers, but nothing seemed to work, then I stumbled across this paper from the In Good Taste papers (on sale this month!) and I think it works beautifully, a bit like a tablecloth.
