CCS Flirty Flamingo – Forever Fern Wreath

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 16 – Flirty Flamingo

This is such a pretty colour combination for tonight’s card using the Forever Fern Bundle in a wreath style card.

The leaf images are stamped 6 times in each colour on whisper white card and die cut. I arranged them in a wreath and popped them up on dimenionals for some added height. The sentiment is stamped and die cut and has a double layer of dimensionals under it, so it sits up higher than the wreath.

The white layer the wreath sits on, is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder for some added interest.

On the inside, I placed two extra stamped/die cut leaf images in each colour and a small strip of DSP that was left over from another project.

Measurements:

Whisper White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, folded in half
Flirty Flamingo: 10.5cm x 10.5cm
Gorgeous Grape: 9.4cm x 9.4cm
Whisper White: 9cm x 9cm

Double Fan Fold card

Week 15 – Early Espresso

Do you immediately think masculine when you see the colour, Early Espresso?! I usually do, but when I looked at the patterned papers and saw that Early Espresso is in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and it being the start of Spring, I had to go with flowers for tonight’s card!

Colour Combination - BB OO EE GF

This Double Fan Fold card was inspired by Sam Calcott, UK. I did change up my measurements slightly, but the design is practically the same. I do love a fancy fold for its wow factor and I think this really makes a statement.

The card base is Early Espresso as is the centre background layer, embossed with the Greenery TIEF. There is also a Gold Foil layer behind it.

I love the three medium daisies down the front of the card and each one is made up of 3 layers; Early Espresso, stamped Bumblebee and plain Bumblebee with a Gold Foil accent in the centre from the Poppy Moments dies. The leaves are also from this die set.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Classic Label Punch was used to cut it out and then it is popped up on black dimensionals. 

You may me wondering where you write a message to send this to someone? I cut a piece of white card to the same size as the Gold Foil layer on the front, then glued it to the back of the card.  This card also folds flat to fit into an envelope.

   

Here it is open flat so you can see all the angles.

Dressed to Impress Fancy Fold 3D Pop Up card

Today is a fun 3D fancy fold design that I saw on YouTube with limited instructions, so I went about making my own with metric measurements.

The Dressed to Impress stamp set and coordinating All Dressed Up dies are fabulous products and I still had plenty of this gorgeous patterned paper left and it was perfect to use for this card. This would look great with the Flowers for Every Season DSP too! Maybe that will be my next one, now I have the measurements figured out. 😉

The Stitched Shapes dies are awesome for creating a frame for this centre piece on the front of my card. The stamped images are coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and the sentiment, I have used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

Open the card and this pops out with two windows – how cool is that?

Colour Creations Showcase – Cherry Cobbler

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cherry Cobbler!

I am using the Prized Peony Bundle for this card, with the Dainty Diamonds and Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folders for beautiful textural interest.

A classic colour combination often used for Christmas, but also works with anything floral related.

Just look at the texture from those embossing folders in the background and on the leaves, and the gold heat embossing on the petals for gorgeous shine!!!! The addition of the scalloped lace trim adds a touch of softness.

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight & Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Bright Magenta Birthday

Tonight I am featuring this stunning Designer Paper, Flowers for Every Season with the NEW in Color, Magenta Madness. Oh my, the bright and cheery colours here make my heart so happy!!!!

Magenta Madness Feminine Handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Well Written dies were cut multiple times and glued together to add some depth and so they pop up from the card a little. Those butterflies are die cut in Brass Foil and add a gorgeous shine. The centres of the flowers have the Bumblebee coloured Enamel Dots!

Behind the die cut images, you can see the whisper white layer, but can you also see the vellum layer behind it? I felt it was needed so the sentiment didn’t get too lost on that amazing designer paper.

Blended Peony on Just Jade

Here I am back again with another card using the Prized Peony bundle and another 60th birthday card!

This time I have stamped the large image and coloured it with Blends Combo Markers; Magenta Madness, Petal Pink and Just Jade.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

Look at that incredible embossed Just Jade layer, using the Greenery Textured Embossing Folder. The Vanilla layer is also embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder for a more subtle look. I love the addition of the lace trim, giving it a lovely feminine touch, to tie in the background layer.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

154056o02  154056o01

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony Magenta Madness by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blackberry Bliss

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blackberry Bliss!

My card tonight was inspired by Jennifer Frost who shared this background technique, although I need lots more practice at it!!!! 😉

It was a fun way of creating a more abstract background to my card.

Colour Creations Showcase - Blackberry Bliss - Dressed to Impress by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

I started with some Purple Posy card stock and began swiping the Highland Heather inkpad across the card, top to bottom, mainly around the edges. Then to build up the colour, I went over it with Rich Razzleberry then Blackberry Bliss ink.  It creates such a fun texture and I’m sure it will look different every time.

Then I stamped the parfum and flowers in Memento ink onto Purple Posy card, die cut them out and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella.

The larger leaves are die cut with the new Forever Flourishing dies, but I stamped the floral image across the leaves in coordinating colour to give it some interest. This same floral image has been stamped in the top left and bottom right corners of the background card in Blackberry Bliss ink for a subtle impact.

I stamped the dots in Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set them. I tie in the white, I also added two smaller leaf dies and a white bow. The perfum and roses are popped up on dimensionals.

Smile for Lovely You

This Lovely You Bundle was also added to my shopping cart as soon as I was able to order it during our demonstrator pre-order period. I just love the smaller floral images, especially because they are perfect for creating the Stamp in the Round style of card (SITR).

By creating a template to use in your Stamparatus, you can stamp an image, rotate the cardstock 90o and stamp again. Continue this process and you end up with a stunning design all in perfect position.

I used the retired wood grain papers on this card, but I have some of the new In Good Taste papers arriving very soon, which are out of this world, amazing! I cannot wait to share some projects with you using those new papers.
