Art with Heart Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

AWHT Blog Hop - Gift Boxes and Bags.jpg

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Tina Gillespie. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

On Saturday 16 November I attended OnStage in Sydney, an event for demonstrators only,  and I created this box for my dear friend Cathy, who picked me up from the airport and allowed me to stay with her and her family on the north shore for 2 nights. We have become wonderful friends through our love of Stampin’ Up! over the last few years and I knew her love for Haigh’s Chocolates, so I wanted to get some for her as a thank you!

I knew it had to be fairly large to fit a couple of packs of chocolates inside, so I started with the base of the box. I placed it on the Simply Scored and placed one pack of the chocolates in the centre to see where the scorelines needed the be. I used a piece of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper, 12″ x 11¼” and scored each side at 3¾”. Cut as shown below and add Tear N Tape.

The lid is a piece of Silver Foil, 6¾” x 7½” and scored on all 4 sides at 1½”. I love the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and it coordinated perfectly with the blues of this project and I know Cathy loves these colours too!

My next project is a Twist N Close Box, inspired by Sam Hammond, UK. I love how this closes up, it is so clever. I’ve used the Daisy Lane Bundle (pg.23 of Annual Catalogue) to decorate it with the Woven Threads DSP.

Here’s what it looks like open and closed from the top view. I plan on sharing these in my 2020 classes.

Easy Daisy Slider Card

Tonight’s Slider card is very easy to create without too much fuss and measurements and link are below.

I am using the Daisy Lane suite for my card. The stamp set and mini daisy punch are available as a bundle saving you 10% and there is a special offer below so make sure you keep reading to take advantage of the 11 free tutorials.

Easy Slider Card using Stampin Up Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019.

I’m using 3 of my favourite new In Colours; Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.

The fern image is stamped in Purple Posy on Seaside Spray cardstock. The medium daisy is all Seaside Spray (ink & card) and the smaller daisies are stamped in the 3 colours on white card and fussy cut. The leaf punch is used with vellum for a softer look.

The circle punch was used to punch the top of the card so you can pull the white card up to reveal the message inside.

Of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the main daisy and over the Smile sentiment.

Water-colouring with Pigment Sprinkles and Daisy Lane

Wow, look at this bright background I’ve created with the new Pigment Sprinkles?!!!

Pigment Sprinkles are watercolour pigment crystals in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours. Mix them with water to make watercolour backgrounds and washes and use them for other water-colouring techniques.  You get 6 jars – 1 of each of these colours: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo.

I used the new Fluid 100 water colour paper (amazing quality) and I went it quite liberally with the Stampin’ Spritzer before sprinkling some of the Pigment Sprinkles on top. TIP: make sure you are light handed as a little goes a long, long way…. jut ask me how I know?!!! Then sit back and watch the instant magic happen! You can also spritz a little more water on if you want a more watercolour look (like the daisies).

Daisy Lane stamp set & Pigment Sprinkles, Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan 2019

The daisies were also created using this same technique but in 2 colours for each size. Allow the water-colour paper to dry completely before trying to punch them out.  The same with the background piece. I actually used my heat tool to quicken up the drying process as I was a little impatient and wanted to keep going. I stamped the stem in Gorgeous Grape ink so it would stand out on the bright background 😉

Use a bone folder to help curve the petals of the daisies before gluing to the card; just gives a bit more life to them.

How gorgeous are those Perennial Essence Centres? So fussy and they are nice and bright to match perfectly with this card.

Blog Hop: In Colours 2018-2021

Blog Hop InColour

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring In Colour theme. Check out the new 2019-2021 In Colours and lets not forget the current 2018-2020 In Colours.

If you would like a copy of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Ros Davidson. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbook page and each of the daisies [Daisy Lane stamp set] in one of the 10 current In Colours. I kept this page very simple in design as I wanted the colours to shine through. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder applied and heat set. I cut it in half with scissors, so I had an even balance above and below the photo. The centres of the daisies is silver glimmer paper and I love that sparkle!

My next project is a card using the Wonderful Moments stamp set and the Mosaic Mood DSP and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the image in Soft Suede as it’s not as harsh as the black ink which most people stamp images with.

Tip: when using Stampin’ Blends markers (alcohol markers) you can actually stamp your images using any of the Stampin’ Up! Classic inks (water based).

This card uses Terracotta Tile as the base and this colour is also in the Mosaic Mood designer papers. Did you see the scallop shaped DSP on the right? I cut around the scallop edge with Paper Snips for extra detail.

The Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers used are: Mint Macaron, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler.

My last project uses the Bird Ballad stamp set, Woven Threads designer series paper and the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing folder. The Frame is the new Seaside Spray card with a strip of Rococo Rose card behind layered with some Very Vanilla Scallop Lace Trim.

The birds are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and some Wink of Stella applied to the chest of each bird for added sparkle.

Colour Creations: Daisies in Pretty Peacock

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

So today I am featuring Pretty Peacock, and what a stunning colour it is. I have used it with Very Vanilla, the 2019-2021 In Colour 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Daisy Lane stamp set. This also coordinates with the Daisy punch and a new Medium Daisy punch is also available now, but of course mine hasn’t arrived yet, so I fussy cut the small daisy images for now!

I used my bone folder to give the petals more dimension, gently curling them up.

Do you notice that gorgeous new In Colour scalloped linen ribbon too? It’s so gorgeous. I also love the font of the sentiment and how cleanly it stamped. WOW! The new Stitched Nested Label dies are a great addition to your die cutting collection.

The stems was stamped on Pretty Peacock cardstock in the same ink and fussy cut.

Are you going to add the Daisy Lane stamp set to your order? You should, it is amazing and can be used for so many different projects.

Colour Creations: Daisy Lane in Rococo Rose

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

I’m a little sad that our AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop has finished, but never fear, we are going to continue for the another 5 weeks showcasing the 5 new In Colours!!!

So tonight we are starting with Rococo Rose, and at this stage I think this one is my favourite colour.

I am loving the Daisy Lane stamp set and I have paired it with loads of new product from the Annual catalogue which started today!!! Yay!!!

My card base is Rococo Rose cardstock with a layer of Whisper White embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.

The 2019-2021 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack is awesome for creating cards and here I have used it by cutting it out with the 1-3/4″ circle punch in each of the designs in the 6″ x 6″ paper stack. The Scalloped Linen Thread is super pretty and I just had to add it to my card.

Daisy Lane in Rococo Rose Stampin Up Australia by Kate Morgan.JPG

The daisy is stamped twice in Rococo Rose ink on the same colour cardstock and punched out using the Daisy punch. I joined them together with Tombo Multipurpose glue and used the bone folder to gently curl the petals for a more realistic look. That gorgeous iced rhinestone in the centre is retired unfortunately, but I love it. The stem was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on whisper white card and fussy cut.

Don’t forget the add some stamped images and/or DSP to the inside of your card!

Here we are with our 2nd last Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Tonight we are featuring our 49th colour; Soft Suede.

I have decided to pull out the new Daisy Lane stamp set which will be available to purchase from 4th June 2019. I also feature the Fable Friends stamp set, one of my favourites that is carrying over into the new catalogue, yippee!!

Daisy Lane Fable Friends Stampin Up Australia Kate Morgan 2019 Colour Creations Blog Hop...JPG

My background is soft suede with another layer of the same colour stamped with the fern image from Daisy Lane in coordinating ink. I also sponged the edges with a dauber and glued it to the base card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue.

The bunny image (Fable Friends) is stamped in soft suede on the same colour card and fussy cut with Snips. Check out the jacket, ears, eyes and nose which are all glittery, as I used my Wink of Stella for some glitz!

Daisy Lane Fable Friends Stampin Up Australia Kate Morgan 2019 Colour Creations Blog Hop.

On each side of the hands, I cut a small sit for the stem of the daisy to slide through. Doesn’t it look like he’s holding it?!!! He is adhered with Dimensionals.

The daisy is stamped with the new  2019-2021 In Colour, Rococo Rose ink on Rococo Rose card stock and cut using the Daisy Punch. I used my bone folder to gently curve the petals up before gluing it to the card and placing a Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.
