Dainty Flowers Cascading Gatefold Card

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 36 – Pear Pizzazz

Today I have a really fun fancy fold card for you; the Cascading Gatefold card!

The Dainty Flowers DSP is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) reward, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order during SAB (5 Jan- 28 Feb ’23). I have also used the Framed Florets Bundle, so if you purchase this bundle, you can get the papers for free. Believe me, you are going to want these frame dies!!!

Slide the belly band off the card to reveal this cascading feature. The Pear Pizzazz embossed pieces are the Fern 3D textured impressions embossing folder.

Are you wondering where to write your message? Well, on the back there’s plenty of room when you use a White card base!

Cascading Gatefold card Dainty Flowers DSP SAB 2023 by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia back

Handy Tip – if you want to heat emboss in a colour that you don’t have the powder for, use the Stamparatus to firstly ink the stamp in Versamark then the ink pad colour of choice, then add Clear Emboss Powder and melt it with your Heat Tool. This also helps when colouring with Blends Combo (alcohol) markers and prevents bleeding!

The sentiment on the front was stamped three times using the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour. Using Blending Brushes to add ink to the feature oval on the front of the card gives a softer touch.

The Thanks a Bunch stamp set is a Level 1 Sale•a•bration (SAB) item, which can be earned for free with a $90+ product order.

This card idea was case’d from a card by Mikaela Titheridge (UK). I just loved her design and thinking outside the box and turning those carrots upside down to create trees! Here in Melbourne, we sort of missed our Spring season, as it was very wet and cooler than normal. We now have Summer arrive with some crazy heatwaves.

Thanks a Bunch alternate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023.

I took a piece of Thick Basic White card and die cut it using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I did my Balmy Blue watercolour wash for the sky and and stamped the grass in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. The flowers are Poppy Parade. The trees are stamped in Shaded Spruce and the trunks are Soft Suede, using the tip of the smaller carrot stamp! I took two smaller dies and placed them over the image and added a little washi tape to the smaller one to hold it in place. Carefully remove the larger one and run the card through your die cutting machine.

Thanks a Bunch alternate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023 layers

With that slightly larger die, cut a Pear Pizzazz layer. I adhered the centre piece to the Pear Pizzazz layer and then both onto the main stamped panel, before adhering it to a Shaded Spruce card base. On the inside and the envelope, I stamped some grass, flowers and a couple of the smaller carrots for trees! The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut with Snips and added with Mini Dimensionals. I coloured some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with my Dark Poppy Parade Blends Marker and added them amongst the flowers. Do you see them?

Love Cats Tunnel Card

If you saw my Seaside Bay card on Saturday (click here), I said I’d share another card with an extra layer. Well here it is!

The Love Cats stamp set and the Dandy Designs DSP (Level 2 SAB item) are perfect for this fun tunnel card. The cats are stamped in Petal Pink, but before stamping onto Basic White card, I inked up the zigzag stamp from the Stitchery stamp set and stamped it with Calypso Coral ink directly onto the cat image then stamped the cat onto the white card. This is called the Kissing technique, kissing the two stamps together, and can be really effective. Once I stamped the 3 cats, I fussy cut them with Paper Snips.

Love Cats Tunnel card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia, SAB 2023

The sentiment inside the tunnel is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle.

Here is how it looks from the top, once constructed and it folds flat to fit into our C6 envelope!

On the back of the card, I used the die cut circles from the front design, plus the Alphabet A La Mode dies (with Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting) and the ‘birthday’ from the Art Gallery stamp set. I also used a Sponge Dauber to add some ink around the White circle.

Don’t these cats look awesome in this tunnel – just like cats really are playing!

Fitting Florets meets Adorable Owls

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have recovered from the festive season and are looking forward to a big 2023! With the excitement looming with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb) on 5 January, I thought I’d pop by and share some cute cards I’ve made using the Adorable Owls stamp set (Level 1 SAB offering).

The images are stamped in Black Memento ink on Basic White card and coloured with Pool Party, Pale Papaya, Light SU900 & Medium SU500 Combo Blends Markers. They are die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits dies and the scallop circle layer is cut in card.

Fitting Florets meet Adorable Owl by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2023.

The Fitting Florets DSP which I’ve used in the background, will be retiring tomorrow, so if you need it (like I did), you’ll need to get moving and place your order 😆  I adore this particular sheet with the Night of Navy and Polished Pink design. I cut a Basic White layer slightly smaller than the card front, then the DSP slightly smaller again. I cut 4cm off the bottom of the DSP and flipped it over to have the reverse pattern showing. Glue these to the white layer then wrap a piece of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon around and across where the DSP joins. Now it can be glued to the card base.

Sneak Peek of Two-Tone Flora Bundle

Today, I have created a predominantly Basic White card with a gorgeous pop of colour. 

The gorgeous background is a large intricate die that I put Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Basic White card before die cutting. This then creates a sticky back once you remove the backing paper instead of using glue and making a big mess. This is adhered to the card base like a sticker.

Next step was to ink up some of the flowers and I decided to do a tone on tone for each one. The darker tone is the colour at full strength, then the lighter tone is stamped off once or some call it second generation stamping. Colour Combination Old Olive Bermuda Bay Daffodil Delight Fresh Freesia Orchid Oasis Pumpkin Pie Polished Pink

Each flower and the leaves have coordinating dies, so no fussy cutting needed. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive ink. Four of the flowers are popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and the others glued directly to the card.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink using the Framed Florets stamp set, then fussy cut with Paper Snips. Some Wink of Stella was added to the centres of each flower. Some new gold Adhesive-backed Sequin embellishments were added to finish it off nicely. All of these stamps, dies, sequins will be available to order from 5 January 2023, or now if you are a demonstrator, or add them to your starter kit and join to save on all your craft products!

Week 33 – Old Olive

This is our final Colour Creations blog hop for 2022, but I hope you will join us again on 4 January 2023 when we return!

Today, I have used the Cottage Rose Bundle with the coordinating Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper. I have gone with some neutrals in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso with Old Olive. All of the feature images are stamped and die cut from Crumb Cake card. The sentiment and main floral image are stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I really like using the “Best Wishes” sentiment, as it can be for many occasions; birthday, sympathy, farewell, wedding, etc.

Best Wishes card using Stampin Up Cottage Rose Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

I used my Dark Crumb Cake Blends Marker around the edges of the main image so it really stands out! I used a sponge dauber to add Early Espresso ink around the sentiment which is cut using the Double Oval Punch as well as on the tips of the die cut flowers behind the focal image.

The card base is Old Olive. The next layer is a piece of the DSP cut with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangle dies, then I coloured the leaves with the Light Old Olive Blends Marker. I took a Blending Brush and added ink across the whole DSP piece. I inked one side of the Merry Melody 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Early Espresso, placed the DSP inside and ran it through my Emboss machine. Then I used the dauber to add ink around the edges before gluing to the card base. Some printed Vellum Layering Designs was added to soften the background.

A Silver piece of Simply Elegant Trim was pulled apart to separate all the fibres. This was something that Shelli Gardner (cofounder of Stampin’ Up!) shared with us during our recent demonstrator only event and it’s such a neat trick!

It is really hard to photograph, but you can just see the Wink of Stella on the petals of the largest flower.

Week 28 – Melon Mambo

The excitement is really growing now, as I am heading to Sydney on Friday to see all my SU friends at our OnStage event for demonstrators. This is the first time for 3 years (thanks Covid) that we will be able to be there in person, yippee. There’s nothing like getting together in a huge room with 500 fellow crafters – can you imagine the hype?!!!

Anyway, more about that next week, but for now we need to focus our minds on Melon Mambo.

The Sending Smiles Bundle is a beauty. The flowers are stamped with the aid of the Stamparatus, in Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry inks. The leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. Using a Sponge Dauber to add the Rich Razzleberry ink to the edges of the flowers as the final step, gives it a lovely tone. The same was done with the leaves and the Evening Evergreen ink.

The white stamped layer is die cut using the Deckled Rectangle dies. This is adhered to a Gold Brushed Metallic Stitched Rectangle die and this glued onto a Melon Mambo layer on the dramatic, Basic Black card base.

The ‘thanks’ is die cut in Basic Black card and Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock. Before die cutting the Gold, I remembered to add Adhesive Sheet so it can be adhered like a sticker to the black layer. This is glued to the card. Some Glossy Dots Assortment were added at the end.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for inspiration using Merry Merlot.

Week 17 – Daffodil Delight

At first, I was going to use the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, but I wanted to challenge myself a little more by using the Vintage Bottle Punch with the Effervescent Elements inside the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome.

So here is my card…

Shaker Card using Pansy Patch and Vintge Bottle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

A Daffodil Delight card base with a layer of Basic White and then some patterned paper, from the  Wonderful World Bundle that is one of the Sale•a•bration offerings with a $180+ product order until 31 August or while stocks last!

159918

The Vintage Bottle Punch was used to punch this patterned paper ready to insert the dome. Before gluing any of the layers, I stamped a couple of the stems in Soft Succulent ink onto the white card layer so it looks like they are in the bottle. Next I stamped all the images using the following inks; Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen before die cutting them with the coordinating dies. Once I worked out the placement, I glued the leaves and stems in place and added 3 of the flowers with Dimensionals. Now was the scary part, trying to put those Effervescent Elements into the dome without spilling them 😉 You may notice a slight blue tinge to the dome – I actually coloured the inside of it with the Dark Pool Party Stampin Blends Marker!

Pansy Posy in a Vintage Bottle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The sentiment is stamped onto one of the Tailor Made Tags dies in Soft Succulent ink and threaded through some Linen Thread. I tied some Soft Succulent Satin Ribbon in a bow and added it to the top of the bottle with two Glue Dots. I finished it off with some Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Happiness Abounds with Calypso Coral

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 12 – Calypso Coral

Tonight’s card is using the Happiness Abounds Bundle as the focal point, with the Charming Sentiments Bundle and the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper. I started with a piece of Pretty Prints DSP and cut a 1″ strip off the left side. This was flipped over and both pieces glued onto a scrap piece of white card. I ran this through the Stampin Cut & Emboss machine with the Fern 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a strip of Gold Shimmer Ribbon down the join of the Patterned paper and secured the ends on the back. I punched each corner with the Very Best Trio Punch before gluing it to a Basic Black card base. (Oops, look at those punched corners… they are not identical. Apparently we need to turn one side upside down to punch to get the same result). I must remember that for next time as I didn’t even notice until someone pointed it out to me!

Feminine Handmade card using Stampin Up Happiness Abounds & Pretty Prints DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022 for Colour Creations Calypso Coral

Next, I stamped the flowers and leaves in Memento ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies. These are coloured with Blends Combo Markers; Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron & Petal Pink. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres but unfortunately it is really hard to photograph. The flowers and leaves are added to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue and Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted the powder using the Heat Tool. The coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes dies cut out the sentiment and this was added with a Black Dimensional.

I tied a Gold Ribbon bow and added it with Glue Dots and finished off with a few Brushed Brass Butterflies.

On the inside I placed a strip of DSP down the side of the White insert and some leaves.

Tonight I have a feminine floral card using the Wonderful World DSP (part of the Saleabration Free item with a qualifying order). The Basic White layer is die cut with the Split Textures die and a piece of the DSP placed behind it. Some Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow on the front. This is glued to the Blushing Bride card base. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut the floral arrangement from a piece of the patterned paper and add it with dimensionals.

Week 4 – Sweet Sorbet

Tonight we showcase our fourth of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Sweet Sorbet!

This colour reminds me a bit of a retired colour, Strawberry Slush (2013-2015 In Color) although this is slightly darker. I have used Sweet Sorbet with Parakeet Party, another new in Color this year. The Bottled Happiness Bundle (Bottled Happiness stamp set and coordinating Vintage Bottle punch) features on my card, along with two designs from the In Color Designer Series Paper 6×6 Pack.
