Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 32nd colour; Night of Navy.

My card tonight uses the colour combination: Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay & Mossy Meadow.

We received this stamp set, Incredible Like You, at OnStage as an all attendee giveaway and I really wasn’t sure about it. But, the only thing to do is open it up, find some coordinating colours and stamp and it turned out okay!

I do love the Flirty Flamingo/Calypso Coral combination of the flowers. Don’t they look great?!! I stamped them on Whisper White and fussy cut them. The bottom one I added with dimensionals rather than glue and I placed a small piece of the Flirty Flamingo ribbon behind it.

On the inside I added the sentiment in Night of Navy and some more flowers in the corner.

Let the Good Times Roll

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a card that took a little while to create and understand how it actually worked when putting it together. When you see it, you will be amazed, but I have to admit there was some frustration at the beginning!

I’m using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue.

I started with an A5 piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock = 8¼” x 5⅞” folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Firstly, I will share with you the inside of the card before the front, and you will see why in a second. This is the most amazing 3D pop up card you will have seen in a while!

Let the Good Times Roll Feminine inside

What kid would not get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out. I have lots of colours as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Here is the front of the card:

Let the Good Times Roll Feminine

Now a few tips I have found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last 

Climbing Orchid by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!

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.

Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Washi Tape

Card for the coffee addict!

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits dies, and the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

I made this card for one of my closest friends for her birthday last week. We try to get together weekly for coffee, so I thought this was kind of appropriate 😉

Angela also loves blue, so what better colours to use than Soft Sky, teamed with browns with white.

I love this coordinating Designer paper and the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape, which you can see two thin strips of the gold; one across the centre of the ribbon and the other on the coffee cup.

The inside of the card has this sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

How cool is it that the images on the Designer Series Paper can also be die cut with the coordinating dies!!! I love this new feature of Stampin’ Up!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous & Petal Garden

Dear Crafters,

This week my team received their shares that we organised, including Designer Series Papers and some ribbons from the new Annual catalogue, and boy, they are just stunning in real life! Here is mine 😉

2017-2018-stampin-up-annual-catalogue-dsps-and-ribbons.jpg

So, today I have a very simple, but pretty card using loads of new Annual catalogue product, including the Petal Garden DSP, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Pretty Label Punch and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous &amp; Petal Garden DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Rowville. Feminine Birthday Card DIY

I just adore this paper! I love every pattern in the pack and that is rare for me, but they are just stunning. I can’t wait to create some more projects with these papers. Here they are:

Petal Garden DSP

Oh and that shimmer ribbon is divine and adds a touch of softness. You know, I would never have put Pool Party and Old Olive together as a colour combination, but somehow, it just works!

I have used two of the new In Colours; Lemon Lime Twist & Powder Pink. Aren’t they just stunning together?!!! The stamp set is called Happy Birthday Gorgeous and I randomly stamped the flowers over the top layer of white card.

the happy birthday sentiment is die cut from the Happy Birthday Thinlits die in the gold glimmer paper.

Birthday Blast

Dear Crafters,

Today my youngest daughter has a birthday party to attend and this little 7 year old loves pink apparently. That was the first step in deciding what colours to use, and next decision was what stamps and/or dies to use.

I haven’t yet inked up my Birthday Blast stamp set, so I got that our and the coordinating edgelits, Star Blast.

stampin-up-birthday-blast-and-star-blast-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017-front

Oh, and check out the Blushing Bride Glimmer Star Blast!!!

stampin-up-birthday-blast-and-star-blast-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-melbourne-occasions2017-flat

See the stars scattered around the card? Well those came out of the edgelits and I wasn’t going to waste them!  I added some Wink of Stella to the stamped stars.

Birthday, Stampin' Up!

Beautiful You Bokeh

Dear Crafters,

 

Today I have the Beautiful You stamp set featuring once again! Do you think I like this stamp set? No, I adore it!!!

I also love this Designer Series Paper, Falling in Love.

The Watercolour Pencils make colouring very easy with the AquaPainter.

feminine-card-using-falling-in-love-dsp-beautiful-you-stamp-set-by-kate-morgan-independent-demonstrator-occasions-2017

and those sentiments, they are just adorable! I have stamped them onto vellum and glued them to the card using Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive.

Those Stitched Shapes Framelits add the extra touch, especially with the scallop circle die behind in vellum!
