Sneak Peek of Buffalo Check with Baby Bear & Copper accents

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Crumb Cake!!!

I am using the Baby Bear stamp set with the new Buffalo Check background stamp (available 5 September in the Holiday catalogue). I have only used two colours; Crumb Cake and Copper… can you believe that?!!!

Baby Bear is a photopolymer 3-step stamp and I used it with the Stamparatus to get the darkest colour I could for the 3rd image. The 2nd image is inked a couple of times and the 1st image only once, to get the colour variation. The Buffalo Check background stamp I also did with the Stamparatus to get a nice dark colour, reinking about 7 or 8 times!

I used the Versamark inkpad and wiped it along the edges of the checked layer and dipped it in copper embossing powder and heat set. I love how it gives a jagged look and not the perfect layer. I added a copper foil layer using the Layering Squares Scallop framelit before adding the baby bear layer with dimensionals. I love the copper trim bow too. Those metallic brass brads you’ll find on page 198 of the Annual catalogue!

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

35650140_10216367116633139_6605810454600089600_n

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. 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!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

Animal Outings Giraffe welcome card, Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2018.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

Annual Catalogue Stampin Up 2018 Pg48.JPG

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

Animal Outings Rhino & Petal Promenade DSP Stampin Up 2018 by Kate Morgan Australia.JPG

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.

Thoughtful Branches, Hedgehog

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card I saw on Pinterest but I’ve changed it up to use products that I have. It’s using the Thoughtful Branches dies along with a few others that you will be able to identify!

So here is my cute little hedgehog!

Oh my, have you seen this stunning Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder? You have to get it! This is the first time I’ve used it and WOW, doesn’t it give a great effect!!!!

Can you tell that the spikes are created from the tree (less the trunk!) die?

thoughtful-branches-hedgehog-cable-knit-dynamic-tief-diy-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

I have used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Black card, along with Soft Sky.

I was super happy with the look of this one!

Baby Bear double Z fold

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is a double Z fold card which you will find all over the internet, on Pinterest, YouTube, everywhere!!!

Baby Bear, Double Z fold Card #stampinup Cards by Kate @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY  Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY

They are really quite simple to create once you know how. It’s just a matter of having a card measuring 4-1/8″ x 11-5/8″, scored on the long edge at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″.

Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate, @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan DIY

Then I took a 1″ x 11-5/8″ piece of card and scored it at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″ then added a piece of DSP the same length, but 3/4″ wide. Glue this strip onto the card.

Baby Bear Double Z fold Card, #stampinup, Cards by Kate, @cardsbykate @cardsbykatemorgan, DIY

The bear is stamped and fussy cut and added to the 1″ strip with tombo glue. Check out his cute little glimmer bow!

I haven’t added any sentiments to this card as yet, as I don’t have anyone to give it to, but I was thinking of maybe adding a brand new babies name to the front panel. I think that would look very cute!

Elephant Cuteness overload

Dear Crafters,

#stampinup Zoo Babies Card

Today I share a card using the stamp set, Zoo Babies (pg 32 AC) and the Go Wild DSP (pg 144 AC)!

My base is Tip Top Taupe card stock with a layer of Pink Pirouette card and a layer of the Go Wild DSP.

I cut all the pieces of card to size, then punched a 2-1/2″ circle out of the Designer Paper. I tied a knot in some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon and tied it around the DSP as shown.

#stampinup Zoo Babies Card

I stamped the elephant image onto some Whisper White card using Tip Top Taupe ink before punching it out with a 2″circle punch. I used the Confetti Hearts Border Punch to get the tiny hearts!

The sentiment, Congratulations is from the same stamp set, inked in Pink Pirouette and cut with the Word Window punch.

Sweet little deer

Dear Crafters,

Made With Love Baby Girl Card #stmpinup

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge JAI#279.

I am loving using the Go Wild Designer Series Paper at the moment and thought it was perfect to use for this baby girl card using the stamp set, Made With Love.

Made With Love Baby Girl Card #stmpinup

I began with the colour scheme of Tip Top Taupe, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. A variety of circle punches in coordinating colours, helps create the focal point.

I water coloured the image to give it the softness required. Paper Piercing has also added a lovely border around the pink card for added interest.

Balloons galore

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an Inspiration Challenge JAI#265.

What better way to celebrate the birth of a baby girl, than with balloons and hearts. Yes I know, everyone will probably do birthday cards with the balloon inspiration photo, but I wanted to mix it up!

And besides, my cousin had a baby girl last week and it inspired me to try this.

Balloon Framelits Stampin' Up!

I also wanted to share with you something else I have been practicing, and that is my little Sailor’s Knot in the thick baker’s twine. You can see it at the bottom of the card, cute hey!!!!
