Week 9 – Blackberry Bliss

Tonight’s Fancy Fold card colours was inspired by the Awash in Beauty DSP. Using the stamp set, Bottled Happiness, the leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow, the flowers in Calypso Coral and I used a sponge dauber to add some Blackberry Bliss ink to a few flowers before pressing the Stamparatus to the card.

The Vintage Bottle Punch was used to cut the vase with Blackberry Bliss card. I found it was too big so I placed it back in the punch and took more off the bottom. It was still too big, so I repeated that step again and it was just right (sounds like a Goldilocks story, LOL)!

Bermuda Bay Fancy Fold

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 8 – Bermuda Bay

Tonight’s fancy fold card features the Count on Me stamp set, Perfectly Penciled DSP and the Butterfly Kisses DSP. The Perfectly Penciled DSP has Black & White images that can be coloured. I have used Bermuda Bay and Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers.

Count on Me Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

First step is to stamp the outline of the bear onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus and Crumb Cake ink. Re-ink and stamp a second time to get a darker colour, then take the rectangle stamp from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set, ink it up with Crumb Cake ink and stamp over the entire image. This gives the bear a wonderful colour. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut close to the outline stamping. The circle is stamped with the round shape from the Watercolour Shapes stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink, then cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies. The heart is cut using the Give it a Whirl dies in the same Butterfly Kisses DSP. Linen Thread and the In Color Gems are added for extra texture and sparkle!

Week 7 – Basic Gray

Tonight we showcase Basic Gray, a colour I don’t use a lot of, but in actual fact goes well with most colours!

I have made a gatefold card, but scored in different positions so one side is shorter than the other. The Brewed for You Bundle, (Brewed for You stamp set and coordinating Brewed dies) are awesome and I know I will get loads of use from them.

The 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper was used to decorate the front panels. The sentiment and beer glass are stamped in Basic Gray ink and Crushed Curry ink for the beer! I placed three Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels on the feature panel.

Irresistible Fancy Z-Fold card

Today’s card is an irresistible Z-fold design using the gorgeous Misty Moonlight cardstock (which is retiring on 2 May). I am really sad about this, but we need to look at the positives and to the 5 new colours we will gain with the new Annual catalogue. The patterned paper is the Heart & Home 12×12 DSP and the image is from the Blessings of Home Bundle (Blessings of Home stamp set and Flowers of Home dies).

Blessings of Home Z Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022 closed

This entire card uses only 1 sheet of A4 Misty Moonlight cardstock. I share all the Metric measurements at the end of this post so you can make one too!

The image is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and then I coloured the image using my Wink of Stella and the following ink pads; Bumblebee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. It is really hard to photograph the glimmer this gives, but by using the Wink of Stella like a paint brush to gently add colour directly from the inkpad, gives the entire image a glorious shine!

Here is the card when open. What a beauty hey?! Don’t forget to stamp on your envelope too – who doesn’t love a pretty envelope in the mail?!

Base: cardstock 28cm x 10.5cm, score @ 7cm & 14cm. DSP 13.5cm x 10cm and 10cm x 6.5cm

I need to give Sharon Armstrong a big thanks as I initially saw this card design on her Pinterest page, but I needed to redesign to Metric measurements and I used different products.

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Fancy Folds, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Six cards inspired by my recent holiday!

Today’s cards are inspired by my recent week long holiday to Phillip Island. It was great to get away from the city and enjoy the slower pace of seaside living, sound of the ocean and fresh air!

When I got home after not taking any craft with me, I was inspired to get creating. So are you ready to see my projects?!!!

Here are some of the items; Waves of Inspiration stamp set and coordinating Waves dies, Waves of the Ocean Designer 12×12 Papers, 12×12 Blue Foil Specialty Pack, and the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels. The stamp and die bundle will be in the new Annual catalogue released on 3 May, however the other items are limited and available until 3 May if not sold out prior.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

I have also used the Paradise Palms Bundle (Paradise Palms stamp set and Palms dies).

PARADISE PALMS BUNDLE 157719

Card 1 – a simple design with some DSP, then a ring/circle of the Blue Foil cut using the new Stylish Shapes dies #159183 (available 3 May) and popped up on Foam Adhesive Strips. The wave is cut in Basic White card and adhered behind the circle.

The sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point ink and cut out using Paper Snips.

I stamped the birds and grass (On the Horizon) directly onto the DSP in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment and pelican onto Basic White and die cut. Some Pebble Enamel Shapes were added along with some Rhinestone Wave Jewels.

Card 6 – using all the same products as the previous cards, although I did stamp the Palm fronds in Saddle Brown Stazon ink onto the green foil as I knew it would dry being a permanent ink!

Shaded Spruce Blog Hop ~ Paradise Palms 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 42 – Shaded Spruce

Tonight’s Pillar Pop Up fancy fold card is fast becoming my favourite! You may have seen my other version on 14 March using Waves of the Ocean.

This is a standard A5 card, but it has a layer at the front reminding me of a diorama, sitting up on two pillars which fold flat for the card to fit into our C6 envelopes.

Paradise Palms Pillar Pop Up Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022, fancy fold

My card base is Shaded Spruce 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Shaded Spruce frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding the palm tree in front and the grass behind. I also stamped and cut out the trio of palms to glue to the inside.

There are two of these pillars at either end behind the front frame, which are created with the same DSP. These allow the frame to sit flat, leaning to the left or the right.

The New Horizons Designer Paper was the perfect choice with the Paradise Palms Bundle.

Pillar Pop Up Fancy Fold card with Waves of the Ocean

It’s the Labour Day long weekend here in Victoria, so I’ve had an extra day to play with my new goodies that arrived on Saturday!

Today’s card is inspired by Rachel Tessman and you can see her video here. I changed mine up a bit by just using a normal A5 card, rather than the stand she creates. I just adore this style and I can see myself making many more, they just have a real wow and still fit into an envelope to post!

Waves of the Ocean Pillar Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin up Australia 2022

My card base is Night of Navy 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Navy frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding one wave in front and one wave behind and trimming the excess.

Stitched Rectangle Dies Numbers

The pillars are created using a piece of the same DSP. These need to be 3″ tall, so start with a 6″ piece and score at ⅜”, ¾”, 1⅛”, 1½” and cut at 1¾” – then cut in half at 3” to have 2 pieces. Fold these to create the pillars and adhere them to the back of the frame. Rachel lines hers up with the edge of the card, however because I was using an A5 metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

Waves of the Ocean Pillar Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin up Australia 2022 top

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set before die cutting and adhering to the card.

Waves of the Ocean Pillar Pop Up card by Kate Morgan, Stampin up Australia 2022 close up

When adhering the frame to the card, Rachel lines it up with the edge of the card, however because I was using a metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

It folds flat to fit in an envelope and can be folded to the right…
