Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Flowering Tulips

Today I have the pretty Tulip Fields Bundle [Tulip Fields stamp set & Windmill Fields dies]. Purchase this bundle and you can select an item for FREE during Saleabration!

As soon as I saw this bundle, I knew I had to have it. It reminds me of our day trips to Tesselaar Tulip Festival in Silvan.

My card base is Mint Macaron with some Basic White cloud die cuts. The tulips layers are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather with dimensionals between the layers for depth.

The windmill is cut from the Cork specialty paper for the base and then Soft Suede card for the top layer and the blades. The blades are attached with a brass brad so they can spin!

On the inside, I added a white insert with a simple sentiment (Flowering Tulips stamp set) and some more of the same colour smaller tulip border dies. The sentiment on the front is from the Flowering Tulips set also and cut with the Dual Oval Punch.

CCBH Old Olive: Thank You Flowering Tulips

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 32 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card features the Flowering Tulips Bundle [Flowering Tulips stamp set & Tulips dies].

My card base is Old Olive with a layer of Harvest Meadow DSP (oops it’s retired), but you could use any patterned paper. The next layer is some of the new Vellum Layering Designs but I didn’t glue this down until I had the tulips etc adhered on top of it, so I knew where to add my adhesive so it doesn’t show through.

Flowering Tulips thank you card for Old Olive CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auatralia 2022

The tulips are die cut with the Simply Marbleous DSP (free item during Saleabration with qualifying order), and the leaves with Old Olive card.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink onto Basic White card and die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies, and popped up on dimensionals.

Again, I have added my favourite Brushed Brass Butterflies, as they are the perfect embellishment, especially for a garden scene!

I also made a second card using the Count on Me stamp set and the Inspiring Canopy dies to create this pretty scene. The Thick Basic White card base is coloured using Blending Brushes with Old Olive at the base. I die cut the clouds using the Basic Borders dies and used it to create the clouds at the top with Pool Party ink.

The trees were initially die cut in Thick Basic White card, so I had to colour the trunks with the Crumb Cake Blends Combo Pack. The leaves were die cut in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and adhered with glue and black dimensionals. The Sun is coloured with Daffodil Delight ink and a Blending Brush before die cutting and adhering with glue.

The koalas are stamped and fussy cut with Paper Snips and coloured using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pens. The fox is stamped and coloured using Blender Pens with Cajun Craze ink (a colour I hardly ever used, but is perfect for my fox!).

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Tulip Fields Birthday card

Today I have a gorgeous field of tulips on my card that I think will be extremely popular when the new January – June Mini catalogue becomes available on 4 January! During the first couple of months, Saleabration will also begin where you can earn FREE items with any $90+ product order!

2022 JJ Mini & SAB catalogues

How amazing is this field of tulips card?!!! The clouds are actually some of the Simply Marbleous DSP that is one of the free items you can choose during Saleabration. If you purchase the Tulip Fields Bundle and the Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments, you can get this DSP FREE!

The rows of tulips are stamped in Pale Papaya, Fresh Freshia and Polished Pink and cut with my Trimmer. I glued these to some Crumb Cake card and then cut it down to 7cm x 13.5cm to fit on the card front (10.5cm x 27cm, scored at 13.5cm), leaving a small gap at the bottom to create the illusion of a bike path.

Tulip Fields birthday card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is actually from another new set which is part of the Flowering Fields Suite, called Flowering Tulips. The full sentiment is stamped on the inside of the card, which you can see below, but I wanted to say happy birthday on the front, rather than happier birthday, so I carefully inked up the first part of the sentiment to happ and stamped it onto white card. Then I cleaned the stamp well with my Simply Shammy and inked up the ‘y’ only from the word birthday and because they are clear photopolymer stamps, I could see through it to place it closely to the happ to create happy!!! Once I stamped the full image again, I fussy cut each word with paper snips, before adding with dimensionals to the card.

The fence and bike are die cut from Early Espresso card and adhered with Multipurpose Glue. How pretty are those Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments which are self-adhesive to make them even easier to use!

This is the inside of the card where the full sentiment is stamped and the windmill and trees are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

Sneak Peek of 2022 Mini catalogue product, In The Moment!

Week 26 – Melon Mambo

Tonight I have a little sneak peek of a new stamp set available in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, called In the Moment Cling Stamp Set.

In the Moment stamp set for Melon Mambo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers. I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper (the same piece as the scalloped frame), fussy cut it and glued it to the stamped image. This technique is called Paper Piecing. Once this was done, I felt it needed a lovely blue sky, so I used the Blending Brushes with the Pool Party ink and the cloud shape from the Basic Borders dies to create the sky. I continued this to the bottom of the white card, as this lady is on a top balcony of a Gold Coast highrise apartment on holidays, enjoying a 5 o’clock wine (are you with me?!!) I think all this time in lockdown has me yearning for a holiday 😉

This is the inside with more clouds at the top, a sentiment and some scalloped edging at the bottom using the two patterned papers and the Scalloped Countours dies.

This Ever Eden Specialty DSP has gorgeous gold foil accents (dots) on this piece. The Garden Gems were added to finish it off. The sentiment is from Peaceful Deer stamp set and stamped in Evening Evergreen on Soft Succulent card and die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

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 24 – Magenta Madness

This is a really bold colour and can be a bit overwhelming, so tonight I have toned it right down by colouring this flower using the Wink of Stella directly with the ink from the lid of the inkpad. This gives a watercolour look, but also gives it a beautiful sparkle at the same time (not that you can see it in the photos)!!!

The Prized Peony stamp set has this gorgeous large stamped image that is inked in Misty Moonlight ink.

Prized Peony Feminine Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The patterned paper is called Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and I’ve used the Scalloped Contours dies to the centre piece and the Basic White layer. I made some Faux Resin Dots in Magenta Madness and added some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, tied in a bow.

Did you have a win on the Melbourne Cup yesterday? I don’t follow the horse racing but I am thankful for the day off work and yesterday’s weather was glorious!

Week 23 – Just Jade

This card is created using the product suite, Bloom Where You’re Planted. The Basic Border dies were used to cut either end of the Gray Granite card to create a panel. I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to create the pattern with the same colour ink.

Plentiful Plants Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hanging basket is die cut from the Silver Foil and the bow is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribobn Combo Pack. The foliage is stamped in Just Jade and Soft Succulent. The front plant has Wink of Stella on it, but it doesn’t show very well in the photo. The pot in the hanging basket is stamped in Gray Granite.

On the inside a piece of the DSP is added along the bottom and die cut pot and plant from the patterned paper were added with a stamped sentiment.

Week 21 – Gray Granite

Tonight I am using the Plentiful Plants Bundle which I got for my birthday recently! I don’t have any of the patterned papers that coordinate with it, but I found some leafy designs in the Christmas papers, Painted Christmas DSP that was perfect, along with the In Good Taste DSP.

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The macrame hanging basket was die cut using the In Good Taste DSP. The same pattern is in the background across the card. The pot is stamped in Gray Granite ink and the plants in Soft Succulent ink. The scallop border die is from the Contours dies, set to be a firm favourite!

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 detail

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with my Heat Tool. I added a gorgeous Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon bow and In Color Jewels.

On the inside, I added some more coordinating plants in a plant stand in the bottom corner.
