CCBH Calypso Coral – In the Round In Symmetry

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 9 – Calypso Coral

Tonight I am using the In Symmetry stamp set, but I don’t have the coordinating designer paper yet, it’s on its way. It doesn’t really matter though, as I have come up with my own colour combination!

Colour Combination - Calypso Coral

I covered my Thick Basic White 5″ x 10″ (folded in half) card base with a piece of the Calypso Coral paper from the Subtles 6″ x6″ DSP pack. Then I cut a layer of Basic Black card to 4¼” x 4¼” and the Thick Basic White layer is 4″ x 4″ to stamp on, using the Stamparatus and the Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique to get the lovely uniform pattern.

I stamped the four Calypso Coral flowers again on some scrap card and fussy cut them out to layer on top with dimensionals for extra depth, before adding a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel to each one. On each of the hearts I added some Wink of Stella. Before gluing the Black and White layers together, I swiped the Calypso Coral inkpad around the edges of the white card.

Week 8 – Cajun Craze

Well, here we are at Cajun Craze, my least used colour in the range! I really struggle with this colour and to me it would be great tone for Terracotta pots, but of course I do not have any stamp sets of this kind!

My next idea is chocolate or coffee, I mean who doesn’t love either of these?!!!! The Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies were the go, along with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment to be stamped on. I had all these done but nothing in the background. I tried lots of different papers, but nothing seemed to work, then I stumbled across this paper from the In Good Taste papers (on sale this month!) and I think it works beautifully, a bit like a tablecloth.

Check out those fancy chocolates with the gold gilded leafing on them. Yep, very fancy chocolates!

and the perfect sentiment for the inside 😉

CCBH Bermuda Bay – Stained Glass Technique

Week 4 – Bermuda Bay

Both my cards today use the same colour combination but using different products!

Colour Combination - Bermuda Bay

Card 1 – This single layer card ins just stamping and a little bling, as you always need a little bling! This card uses the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and the Biggest Wish stamp set for the sentiment.

Hand-Penned Petals & Biggest Wish single layer card #simplestamping by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The images are stamped onto Basic White card layer. Once I finished stamping, I ran the edges of the card along the Night of Navy inkpad for an instant border. Glue this to the card base then finish off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Card 2 – I had a go at a Stained Glass Window Technique – simply using alcohol markers (Stampin’ Blends) to colour the back of the window sheet that has been stamped on the front with Stazon Black ink with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set! The card base has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die.

The frame is die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies a few times and gluing them together for some depth. Then using some Foam Adhesive Strips to add space from the Shimmery White card behind.

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 45 – Seaside Spray

Seaside Spray is from the 2019-2021 In Color collection. It is one of my favourites and I am sure going to miss it when it retires on 3 May.

Pierced Blooms Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Hydrangea Hill DSP is embossed with the Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and glued to a white card base. I die cut a variety of flowers and leaves using the Pierced Blooms dies in Seaside Spray, Soft Sea Foam and Purple Posy cardstock. The vellum layer is die cut using the Flowering Vine dies.

Pierced Blooms in Seaside Spray Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment panel is stamped (Beautiful Friendship stamp set) and die cut. After cutting, turn it over still in the die and run a stylus around the edge to give it that extra embossed edge. Fold some ribbon behind the sentiment and add some dimensionals at either end to adhere it to the card.

To finish, I added some Faux Resin dots, Rhinestone Jewels and Butterfly Gems.

Vine Design Feminine card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 44 – Sahara Sand

Sahara Sand is from the Neutrals collection.

I have used the very pretty Vine Design Bundle for my card tonight and teamed Sahara Sand with Rococo Rose and White. Rococo Rose is one of the outgoing InColors and I sure will miss it. How gorgeous does it look with Sahara Sand?!!!

I love to use a white card base, so I designed my card front onto a Rococo Rose A6 piece of card.

I die cut the large rectangle die (Flowering Vine Dies) in Sahara Sand and cut it in half so I could glue half at the top section of the card front and half at the bottom.

Vine Design Sahara Sand Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The leaves are stamped onto a piece of white card. I stamped the small flowers onto some scrap white card and die cut them with the coordinating dies, adding a small rhinestone to the centres.

I glued the stamped white layer onto some Rococo Rose card and then onto some Sahara Sand card to add some layers. Once these were glued together, I wrapped around some Rococo Rose scalloped trim at one end and tied in a knot. I added the edges from the dimensionals pack around the back and placed it in the centre of the card.

Vine Design Sahara Sand Colour Creations Showcase Feminine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 sq

I stamped and die cut the sentiment, trimming off the left edge with Paper Snips so it could slide in under one of the flowers.

Each of the small flowers are added with a mini dimensional and I also added some of the cute Butterfly Gems that coordinate perfectly.

Love You Rococo Rose

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 42 – Rococo Rose

Rococo Rose is another one of the InColors which will sadly retire soon when the new Annual catalogue is released and 5 new InColors will be introduced. I really like this soft blush colour and it works beautifully with the colours I’ve used today.

Pierced Blooms Love You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I die cut many of the flowers with the Pierced Blooms dies in the various colours before working out exactly how I was going to put this card together. Once I had all the pieces, I thought it would look pretty cool in a wreath style, but as they are fairly large blooms, I needed to have a larger Thick Basic White square card (12.5cm²).

The flowers are placed on dimensionals and then I went back and added some foliage underneath.

The ‘Love You’ is from the Forever & Always Bundle. I stamped them in Rococo Rose on white card and die cut the ‘love’ with the coordinating die and the ‘You’ I just used paper snips.

You can see I added more of those cute Butterfly Gems and some Wink of Stella to the So Saffron die cuts for a little sparkle.

Vine Design card with a handy tip for your die cut sentiments

This Vine Design bundle is rather cute and I’m glad I purchased it recently.

I used some of the Paper Blooms DSP (free during Saleabration with qualifying order – ends tonight) as the background. I die cut the leaves in Night of Navy cardstock and stamped 8 of the flowers in Night of Navy ink onto Rococo Rose card, then die cut them out.

Vine Design Thinking of You card by Kate Morgan, Stampin' Up Australia 2021

The sentiment is stamped in Rococo Rose ink and die cut. Can you see that extra embossed edge around the sentiment? I share my handy tip below:

The sentiment and flowers are popped up on dimensionals and placed some retired metallic pearls in the centres of each flower. The Butterfly Gems are super pretty and I had to add a few of them too!

Fine Art Floral Suite with Gilded Leafing

The Fine Art Floral Suite is stunning and all these gorgeous products coordinate to make your crafting experience more pleasurable.

I love this particular piece of patterned paper, with all the pink tones. I have used the Petal Pink 5/8″ organdy striped ribbon, just a hit of it between the two DSPs.

The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo/Mossy Meadow ink. Then I used Versamark ink, added Heat & Stick Powder and used the Heat Tool to melt it, before applying the Gilded Leafing.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Art Gallery with Gilded Leafing

AWHT Creative Showcase

Tonight’s card is simply stunning with the addition of the gold gilded leafing – WOW, this stuff is just to die for!!!

The Art Gallery Bundle has this gorgeous two step stamped flower which I have inked in Pool Party and then the second layer is stamped in Versamark. Add Heat and Stick Powder, shake off the excess, then heat it with a Heat Tool. This melts the powder so you can then add some of the Gilded Leafing flakes. I use my finger to rub it around over all the sticky powder. I find this the most effective way of adding it efficiently. A little tip with the Gilded Leafing – do not use when you have a fan on, the windows open if it’s breezy outside or it you are about to sneeze. Ask me how I know, LOL. It is so light, it flies everywhere!!!

Art Gallery Bundle and Flower & Field DSP by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021

The sentiment is from the Many Messages Bundle – a wonderful stamp set (all sentiments on 1 stamp) and the die cuts out each one individually in one pass on the Cut & Emboss Machine! Use your Stamparatus to ink up the stamp for a perfect impression.

Art Gallery Bundle and Gilded Leafing by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021
