Interlocking Gatefold cards using different designer papers for different looks!

Hello Crafters,

These are some of the cards we made during my class last Thursday. The first card uses the Petal Promenade DSP, it is stunning! This creates a very soft and feminine card with the Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride colour palette.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls coordinate so well with these papers and the Share What You Love stamp set. The flower images are coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella for added shine. This sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. Wouldn’t this be the perfect wedding card?

The next card is using the Garden Impressions DSP; making a bright and bold Interlocking card.

This is such a fun card to make and I love how different DSPs can make the same style card, look so different.

Happy birthday, Gorgeous

I made this card for a dear friend who was a work colleague for many years, but left a couple of years ago. It was her 60th birthday which also happened to fall on Father’s Day, so happy birthday Sarah!

Did you see the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the front? It is from the new Holiday catalogue, but it looks fab on this non-Christmassy card. It will be one we can use on lots of different projects, thanks Stampin’ Up!

The lady is stamped in Petal Pink ink and her dress is coloured with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen and the hat was dipped in some Melon Mambo ink to pick up a bit of coordinating colour! The sentiment is stamped over the top afterwards in Melon Mambo ink so it didn’t smudge.

As you open this card, it reveals more of the Garden Impressions Designer Paper which coordinates so well with this elegant lady, don’t you think?!! I can see her at a wonderful garden party!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. It is perfect for the fabulous Sarah.

Colour Creations: Coastal Cabana with Bella & Friends

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Coastal Cabana!!! I have to say, I was so excited that it returned with the colour revamp this year. I just adore it ♥

I got inspiration from Tina Rappe for this card, but changed it up to suit our Australian paper sizes. I also made one for my daughter’s 12th birthday with the Pretty Kitty which you can see here. This was one of the cards I taught at my last card class too!

Today I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set with the Garden Impressions DSP which is a stack of 6″ x 6″. This pack doesn’t actually have Coastal Cabana as one of its colours, but I thought this coordinated quite well anyway.

The front panel is embossed using the Basket Weave TIEF. I thought it was perfect for this card, as I imagine most puppies having a basket to sleep in!

The puppy is coloured with the Watercolour Pencils; Coastal Cabana, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Real Red then used the Blender Pen to blend and smooth out the colour.

I had a small strip of the Designer Paper left over, so I added it the centre layer where I will add my message. The ribbon is a retired one from a Sale-a-bration freebie from a few years back!

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. 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 of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.

Pretty Petal Promenade with an Interlocking Gatefold Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a feminine card using the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP. Have you seen these papers? They are actually just like a photo, which is how Stampin’ Up! created them!

I love the softness of the petals and the colouring of these roses, but I also think it may be overpowering as a full layer on a card. So I have cut it into 2 panels to adhere to the front of the card in this fancy fold style.

Petal Promenade DSP with Share What You Love by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia.

It is a gatefold card, but when you open it, the oval layers interlock!

I saw Dawn Griffiths make one of these, but of course I needed to alter the paper sizes for A4, rather than US sizing, so went back to my trusty file to find a gatefold card that I had made many years ago and adapted it.

Here it is open. I have stamped the image again and coloured the petals with the Wink of Stella, the same as the front!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a bench fold card that uses the Varied Vases bundle from the brand new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. This is a wonderful bundle which has 34 photopolymer stamps in the set and a coordinating punch to cut out the images. The best part is that it’s only $68.25 for the bundle!

The Wood Textures DSP is also carrying over into this new catalogue, which is wonderful news. This rarely happens but it has been so popular and it coordinates with so many of our wonderful products.

This was the card I made for my mum for Mother’s Day this year ♥

Thinking of You Fancy Fold with Nature’s Poem DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share my own design Fancy Fold card using Designer Series Paper!

No more hoarding DSP in my house this year, I need to use it and this style is perfect. You can use any of the Designer papers in the Stampin’ Up! range to create all types of cards and the best part is you can get 2 cards from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″!

Each card measures 12″ x 6″ scored at 1¾”, 4¾”, 7¾” and it fits into our C6 envelopes.

Fun Fold Nature's Poem DSP, Rooted in Nature Stampin Up Thinking of You Card by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018

Here it is fully open. The first fold is glued down to the front of the card. Depending on the reverse design of your paper, it can give a striking effect as seen here. This also makes the card stronger. I didn’t want to put a large piece of card in the centre to write the message for two reasons, I didn’t want to cover up that gorgeous paper and secondly I cut it down to fit behind the large sentiment when the card is closed.

Just look at those leaves ♥ I am so in love with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats! Not only did I emboss the leaves on the white message piece, but also embossed them in coordinating coloured card and then die cut them to add even more texture to the front of the card.

Fancy Folds for the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop!

AWHT Blog Hop September 2017 Fancy Folds.jpg

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art with Heart Team blog hop where we are focusing on fancy folds. You will find loads of creative inspiration tonight, showcasing different folding techniques and projects. Don’t be afraid of trying some Fancy Fold cards; they may look intimidating, but in fact, they are not that difficult to create.

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!

For my projects today I am using the Best Birds stamp set with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I love how striking this Designer Paper is too and I knew it had to be a focal point. #cutitnothhoardit

Fancy Fold Card #1

For my first card today, I am sharing a fairly simple fancy fold card, a Double Z Fold.

The card base is Pool Party card = 11⅜” x 5⅛” and score at 2¾” & 5½”. Trim off a 1″ strip from the bottom of the card which will create the double z fold. You just flip that strip over, so the shorter end is on the right as shown. Then you decorate as you like.  Here is my colour combination using the coordinating colours in the Designer Paper!

Fancy Fold Card #2

For my second one, I have a more advanced fancy fold card. I am sharing a style that I think is amazing, but I’ve never found it in Australian cardstock sizes, so I created my own A5 Gatefold Shutter card. It took quite a bit of time to figure out all the correct measurements, but I am super happy with the outcome. Now I have mastered it, I can whip them up in no time at all!

When you take off the belly band, the centre diamond opens to reveal a secret message inside!

Kids love this style of card, they think it’s like magic when it opens up. They look difficult to make, but if you follow the instructions, they are actually quite easy.
