Introducing Wild Wheat

2023-2024 AWH Colour Creations header

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.

Week 5 – Wild Wheat

Today brings us to the fifth new In Color, Wild Wheat. I have to admit, this colour does not exactly excite me, but hey, with any luck it will grow on me!

I started this card today by designing the Patchwork Pieces die with some of the 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Packs; Lost Lagoon from the Subtles pack, Melon Mambo from the Brights pack and Wild Wheat from the In Colors pack. Because I was using 3 different colours, meant I would be able to create 3 lots of patchwork pieces. I cut some white card to the size of the large die, which I added Stampin’ Seal to the entire piece, so the patchwork pieces would be able to stick to it.

My Wild Wheat card base (27.5cm x 13cm) is folded in 3, scored @ 9.2cm & 18.4cm.
You can see the Lost Lagoon Bordered ribbon is adhered to the front section of the card only, so it can be wrapped around the card to close it.

The 3 Patchwork panels are adhered to the front, inside and the back panel. The 3rd panel has the Basic White card cut with the Radiating Stitches dies to write your message. These dies were also used to cut the heart and circle. The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is the Wanted to Say dies. The sentiment on the front [Dainty Delight] is stamped in Versamark Ink, White Emboss Powder added before heat setting with Heat Tool. It was added to the card with Dimensionals.

I decided to make a second card, but this time reducing the amount of Wild Wheat. I started by taking a Water Painter and some ink and applying it to some Fluid 100 Water Colour Paper. While it was still damp, I took my Boho Blue Blends Marker and flicking it using the lid of the pen, I added some splatters. I repeated this with the Moody Mauve Blends.

Cheerful Daisies Card for Wild Wheat colour creations blog hop 2023 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

The Cheerful Daisies Bundle and Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper were my features for this card. I die cut the daisies in Basic White card. The centres are cut from the Water coloured paper as are the leaves. I also used the More Dazzle Specialty Paper to cut some extra leaves for sparkle!

The centre panel in the background, is Wild Wheat and I stamped the leaf image in 2nd generation stamping; meaning I inked the stamp, stamped on some paper before onto the card strip. A piece of the dotty design of the Vellum Basics Specialty pack was cut using the Nested Essentials dies and placed over the centre of the 3 strips. I’m not sure if you can see the 2 lines at the top and 2 at the bottom of the white layer? I added these for some extra interest using my scoring blade in my Trimmer.

Introducing Pebbled Path

2023-2024 AWH Colour Creations header

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.

Week 4 – Pebbled Path

Today brings us to the next new In Color, Pebbled Path. I have to say, now that I’ve had a play with this colour, I really like it and I will find myself reaching for it often, I’m sure!

Card 1
To my card base, I have attached a piece of Pretty Peacock patterned paper from the Earthen Eleganance DSP. Next, die cut a piece of Pebbled Path card with the Gorgeous Garden die and glue it to the card.

Pebbled Path Paper Florist Gorgeous Garden card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia Colour Creations Blog Hop 2023

Die cut the petals, leaves, buds from the Paper Florist dies in Bubble Bath, Lost Lagoon & Moody Mauve cards. Using the Bone Folder, curl the petals a little and glue them together.

Tip: when putting the buds together, die cut the buds and leave them on the cutting plate. Take the stem, add glue behind the tops of each and adhere them to the buds for easier lining up!

Glue the leaves to the card before adding the flowers last. I also cut  piece of Linen Thread, pulled it apart so I had a thin piece, tie in a bow and add between the two flowers. To finish, I added some 2023-2025 In Color Dots & Pretty Peacock coloured Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

Pebbled Path Paper Florist Gorgeous Garden card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia Colour Creations Blog Hop 2023 sending love

I wanted only one part of the sentiment (Dainty Delight), so I used the Pebbled Path marker (2023-2025 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers) directly to the stamp then onto White card and fussy cut with Paper Snips. Adhere on dimensionals. On the inside, I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock DSP & another die cut flower!

Card 2
Using similar products, this landscape card features some light watercolouring with Pebbled Path ink & Water Painters on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. I allowed this to dry while I did cut the flowers and glued them together.

Pebbled Path Paper Florist Wanted to say card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia Colour Creations Blog Hop 2023

On my card base, I’ve added a layer of the Bubble Bath piece of White Centre Specialty Paper, then some Vellum Basics Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Wanted to Say dies were used to cut the sentiment.

The leaves are cut from the wateroloured piece and the Pebbled Path piece from the 2023-2025 Luster Specialty Paper. The stamen and the top part of the sentiment are also from the watercoloured piece. The buds and flower centres are Bubble Bath card. I finished off adding some Wink of Stella and some Classic Matte Dots.

Introducing Moody Mauve

2023-2024 AWH Colour Creations header

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.

Week 3 – Moody Mauve

Today brings us to the third new In Color, Moody Mauve. I have two cards today and my first one uses the Patchwork Pieces dies, Radiating Stitches dies, Wanted to Say dies and the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper.

Patchwork Pieces Fresh as a Daisy card by Kate Morgan stampin Up Australia 2023 Moody Mauve

A Moody Mauve card base with a Bubble Bath layer cut with the Radiating Stitches die is added. The heart is also from this same die pack. The next layer is Very Vanilla. The Patchwork dies are cut from Bubble Bath card and again with some Fresh as a Daisy patterned paper. These are adhered alternating to get this beautiful Patchwork effect. The Wanted to Say dies cut both layers of the ‘celebrate’ and how good do they look?!!! I added a double bow of Linen Thread adhered to the heart and some In Color Dots to finish it off.

On the inside, I added a Very Vanilla piece with some of the extra Patchwork pieces and a heart in the corner, still leaving plenty of room for your message. Can you believe that I haven’t used any ink or stamps on this card?!

Patchwork Pieces Fresh as a Daisy card by Kate Morgan stampin Up Australia 2023 Moody Mauve inside

My next card I have used the Countryside Corners dies to make an Easel card. The Cheerful Daisies bundle is a beauty and you can see lots of it used on this fun fancy fold card.

Cheerful Daisies Easel Card by Kate Morgan, Stmpin Up Australia 2023

I have had a few people recently ask me how I created these card bases using these dies, so here you go – I hope you can follow this!

To create the card base, fold your cardbase in half. Take the largest die from the Countryside Corners dies and place the folded edge on top of the die, so the cutting edge is outside the card (see image below). It’s best to use some washi tape to hold it in place.  Carefully place your top acrylic cutting plate and run through your die cutting machine.

Cheerful Daisies Easel Card by Kate Morgan, Stmpin Up Australia 2023 cutting tip

Now you have your card base. Open it up and place it in your Trimmer and using the scoring blade, score a line down the centre of one side (see image below). Fold this in half (valley fold) and this is the top of your card. Cut another piece of card using the same large die. Add glue to the bottom half only of the front panel and attach this extra die cut to create the easel.

Here is a look at it from the side.

On the inside, you can see a layer of Bubble Bath behind the Basic White, a stamped flower and silver foil foliage. The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals so the card front sits behind it creating the easel effect!

Week 2 – Copper Clay

Today brings us to the next new In Color, Copper Clay. This colour reminds me of the orangutan’s at the zoo, so I have gone with the Little Monkey bundle again.  This card is fairly simple, great for a beginner crafter; with some punch art and easy colouring. These two little monkeys are having so much fun swinging from the branch!

Little Monkey Copper Clay card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

A Copper Clay card base, with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock as the matt layer. A piece of Basic White to stamp the tree branch and colour using the In Color Stampin’ Write Marker (Copper Clay) and the leaves are all coloured using Parakeet Party Blends Combo Markers. The outline of the leaves at the bottom are stamped in Granny Apple Green ink.

The monkeys face and ears are punched from Lemon Lolly card that I lightly coloured using a Blending Brush and Copper Clay ink.  How cute are they hanging by their tails from the branch?!!! The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut with Paper Snips and added with Mini Dimensionals.

Introducing Boho Blue

2023-2024 AWH Colour Creations header

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.

Week 1 – Boho Blue

Today brings us to the start of the new In Colors available in the new Annual catalogue before we continue with the remainder of the 50 Stampin’ Up! colours. I hope you will join us each week for some amazing colour inspiration.

2023-2025 In Colors Craft with Kate Moody Mauve, Boho Blue, Pebbled Path, Copper Clay, Wild Wheat

The Countryside Inn Suite was the very first suite to jump into my shopping cart – how stunning are these designer papers?!! They are so much my colours! I have paired Boho Blue with Night of Navy.

Countryside Inn DSP

A Boho Blue card base with a layer of Night of Navy then a piece of the DSP which was embossed with the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder.

Countryside Inn Suite by Kte Morgsn, Stampin Up Australia 2023.

Using the Countryside Corners Bundle, I stamped the image in Boho Blue ink onto white card. Using the coordinating dies, I cut it out and used a slightly bigger die to cut the matt border. Using a Sponge Dauber, ink was applied around the edges of the white card, before gluing it to the matt layer. The Boho Blue Textured Ribbon was cut in half lengthwise so it wasn’t as thick, tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.  I finished off adding a few In Color Dots.

My next card is for Mother’s Day coming on 14 May, although it could really be used for any occasion. Who doesn’t love flowers, right?!! The Dainty Delight dies are stunning and I am introducing two new colours to the Subtle range; Bubble Bath and Lemon Lolly. Add these to Boho Blue and Night of Navy and it’s a glorious combination!

Countryside Corners Dainty Delight card Boho Blue Mother's Day card by Kate Morgn Stampin Up Australia 2023

I have continued to use the Countryside Corners Bundle to create the card layers. The Night of Navy layer was stamped with Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set (initially I had the Navy layer without the white dots, but I added them afterwards, and it was hard not to get the extra powder everywhere). The other two layers are simply stamped tone on tone and a Basic White layer on top.

Then all the fun begins die cutting loads of flowers and gluing them together.  The leaves are glued on first, then the blue flowers and the others are added with Mini Dimensionals.

Countryside Corners Dainty Delight card Boho Blue Mother's Day card by Kate Morgn Stampin Up Australia 2023 side

The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set and some In Color Dots are added last with a white ribbon bow. The inside is decorated in a similar way to carry the theme through, as is the envelope.

Soft Suede: Just Swinging By

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 50 – Soft Suede

Today brings us to the end of our 50 Stampin’ Up! colours. I hope you have enjoyed the journey?!  But it’s not really the end, as we will start again next week with some brand new In Colors available in the new Annual catalogue available on 2 May!!!

Today’s card features a new bundle in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, Little Monkey. This is  photopolymer stamp set and coordinating Punch bundle. I am also mixing things up with Soft Suede that is retiring on 1 May, Lemon Lime Twist is returning to the Bright’s collection and Lemon Lolly is a brand new colour for the Subtle’s collection!

Colour Combination - Soft Suede

A Soft Suede card base with a Lemon Lime Twist layer die cut using the Radiating Stitches dies (Online exclusives product only). The smaller layer also is from this die set and cut in Shimmery White cardstock (sadly retiring soon). Don’t adhere this layer until you’re ready to put it all together.

Little Monkey Interactive card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023

I stamped the tree images twice onto the Shimmery White layer and coloured the trunk with the Light Soft Suede Blends Marker. The leaves I coloured with the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker. The monkey I stamped on a separate piece of Shimmery White cardstock and coloured it with the Ivory & Soft Suede Blends Combo Markers.

Little Monkey Interactive card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 close up

I punched it out along with an extra Soft Suede one, which I adhered them together with glue to make it a little more sturdy. I adhered a tiny 5mm round magnet to the back of the tail. I placed a second magnet on the back of the tree where the monkey will hang from. I didn’t glue it, it just stays there as long as you don’t pull the monkey off the front. I added Dimensionals to the back of the Shimmery White layer and around the magnet so it doesn’t move too far. Remove the paper backings and adhere this layer to your card.

The banana I stamped with Soft Suede ink on the new Lemon Lolly cardstock and fussy cut it with Paper Snips, then adhered it to the monkey’s arm with glue. Lemon Lolly’s the perfect colour!

Here is the little swinging monkey – isn’t it cute?!!! (sorry about the bandaid on my finger)

On the inside, I die cut some Lemon Lolly card with the same die as the front and added some stamping. You can see the envelope is stamped too!

Soft Succulent: Rain or Shine

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 49 – Soft Succulent

Today we focus on one of the 2021-2023 In Colors, Soft Succulent which will retire in 11 days. I sure will miss this one as it is my absolute favourite colour out of the five In Colors due to retire.

The Rain or Shine Specialty DSP and the Fine Shimmer Paper Pack feature heavily in this card. I also used the Raindrops Embossing Folder behind the bunny and a sponge dauber to gently add some ink.

Rain or Shine Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023 Soft Succulent

The main image is fussy cut from one of the DSP sheets and popped up on dimensionals. The fine shimmer paper was cut with the Framed Florets dies for that oval frame.

Here is another view of the card, so you can see how it looks when open. It is a basic Z fold design, but it has 5 strips of Balmy Blue card creating the panels. I added the top and bottom panels first, then the centre one, then the other 2 last so they were fairly evenly spaced.

Rain or Shine Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023 Soft Succulent tunnel view

On the back panel, I added some Basic White card and stamped the sentiment/balloon and used a sponge dauber to apply ink around the edges.

Soft Sea Foam: Seaside Bay

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 48 – Soft Sea Foam

Today I have used the Seaside Bay Bundle with the coordinating By the Bay Specialty DSP.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

Although these papers don’t have Soft Sea Foam in them, it still works well. The card base is Soft Sea Foam and I’ve used the shell stamp inked with Versamark, gold emboss powder added and melted with my Heat Tool. This creates a lovely border, don’t you think?!

Seaside Bay card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023 Sooft Sea Foam

The next two layers are cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies from the DSP. These are glued together and added to the card base with Dimensionals.  The larger bird is die cut from the papers too, how cool is that?! The smaller birds and shell are stamped with Soft Sea Foam ink and die cut. The sea grasses and shells are die cut from Soft Sea Foam and the Gold from the 12″ x 12″ Fine Shimmer pack. The birds are added with Mini Dimensionals and the shells/grasses are adhered with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

Seaside Bay card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023 Sooft Sea Foam small

On the inside, I used the Waves of Inspiration Bundle. I stamped the birds from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and the waves with the Waves dies in the Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer pack.

Seaside Bay card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2023 Sooft Sea Foam insert

You can really see the gorgeous shimmer of all the gold in this photo! Finally I added the sentiment and some Flat adhesive-backed Pearls.

So Saffron: Sweet Waffle Cone

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 47 – So Saffron (retiring soon)

Today I have a sweet card with a waffle cone filled with ice cream and a cherry on top!

Can you believe this colour combination? All three of these colours are retiring at the end of April, but if you want any product in these colours, get it now as they will sell fast!

Colour Combination - So Saffron Mint Macaron Blushing Bride Basic White Craft with Kate

A So Saffron card base has a layer of Basic White stamped with the hearts. The next layer is some Vellum Basics Specialty Paper. The waffle cone is die cut from Kraft cardstock, the perfect colour for a waffle cone, don’t you think?!!

The ice cream was stamped in So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron inks. The cherry was stamped 5 x using the Stamparatus to get a darker shade. The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut using Paper Snips and adhered using Dimensionals. A Linen thread Bow is added with a rolled up Glue Dot.

On the inside, some more hearts are stamped with a heart die cut in the corner. I finished off with some gold Pastel Adhesive backed Sequins.

Friendly Gnomes Love Ya

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 46 – Smoky Slate

Today’s card I wanted to use the Friendly Gnomes stamp set. I stamped the gnome in Smoky Slate using the Stamparatus. Then I stamped over the top with Versamark ink, added Clear Emboss Powder and melted it with my heat tool. This makes it easier to colour to contain the bleeding, when using Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Smoky Slate Mint Macaron White & Silver Foil

My card base is Smoky Slate. I took some Silver Foil and added some Country Gingham DSP in Mint Macaron. Then I cut the circle with the 2″ Circle Punch (which has returned as part of the Online Exclusive products, yay)! This was then glued to the card base.

Conversation Bubbles Friendly Gnomes by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2023 Smoky Slate CCBH.

I coloured the Gnome with Stampin’ Blends Combo (alcohol) markers; Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Basic Black & SU1000. The Conversation Bubbles Bundle was used to create the Luv Ya sentiment.

On the inside I used the Blending Brushes to add Mint Macaron around the edges, stamped the flower and added an offcut of the patterned paper. The flowers were coloured with the same colours as the gnome, but I used the Chalk marker to add the white to the centres.
