Pop Up Z Fold Block Card

This Pop Up Z Fold Block card uses the Sending Smiles Bundle with the retired Rings of Love DSP, a Level 1 SAB patterned paper pack from Jan-Feb 2022.

I saw a card by Lisa Curcio, which is where I got this idea and you can see her imperial measurements here. My metric measurements are listed below and mine fits into a C6 envelope!

Pop Up Z Fold Block Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

My card base is Night of Navy with Mint Macaron matt layers and the Rings of Love DSP. The Sending Dies were used for the ‘sending’ die cut which I used Adhesive Sheet on the back of the card before cutting, so it acts as a sticker! This is so much easier than getting glue everywhere with such intricate dies. I used a Sponge Dauber to apply some Mint Macaron ink around the Basic White layer to soften the edges before adding the stamp/die cut sentiment. Some Festive Pearls were added to finish it off.

Pansy Patch Shaker 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 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.

On the inside I added a white layer with a small strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock to the bottom edge and added another stem and flower.

Sahara Sand Blog Hop ~ For the Record, who loves donuts?!!!

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 41 – Sahara Sand

Tonight’s sweet donut card is made using the For The Record stamp set. I stamped the record in Sahara Sand ink onto the same colour card and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. I cut a second circle the same size for the icing. I used snips to fussy cut the edges to create a more natural icing then stamped the sprinkles from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I used the ‘O’ from the Playful Alphabet dies to cut out the centre. I used the Stitched with Whimsy dies on the card base, running it through the Cut & Emboss Machine, then used my Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw over the marks to create faux stitching!

For the Record Donut and FAux Stitching by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

I stamped the sentiments in Sahara Sand ink onto Basic White card and used my paper snips to cut the banners on each end. These were popped up on Dimensionals. Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels are added to finish it off.

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.

Count on Me Sheep card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia SAB 2021

The Balloon is die cut on Poppy Parade card, the sun and party hat on Daffodil Delight card. The hat is stamped first with the Pacific Point ink and the dots coloured with Wink of Stella. The sheep is stamped in Gray Granite ink, but I stamped off once for a lighter shade!

Snail Mail to the rescue

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

FREE SHIPPING TODAY ONLY – WEDNESDAY 17TH MARCH 2021 – on all product orders over $45.00!

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 40 – Real Red

Real Red is lovely bright red, but it is not a colour I use a lot of. My first instinct was to stamp and colour a rose, but wanted to try something completely different. I had a sample of this Snail Mail DSP which has Real Red listed as one of the colours. Because I don’t have anything else from this suite, I decided to really focus on the papers. One sheet has lots of larger snails, so I cut one out with my paper snips.

My card base is Real Red with a Basic White layer. The patterned paper is one sheet, but I cut a third off and flipped it over for a bit of contrast and I quite like the sentiments in the speech bubbles. The Ornate Borders die is used to add some interest between the two pieces of DSP.

Snail Mail card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Once again I used a Square Vellum Doilie to soften the bold patterned paper.

Are you wondering where I got the mushroom? I made it myself using the Ice Cream Builder Punch for the hood (Real Red & Blushing Bride), a 1/8″ circle punch for the dots and cut the white stem by hand!

The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is stamped in Real Red and I used my electric cutting machine to cut it out or you can use paper snips to fussy cut.

Week 39 – Purple Posy

Purple Posy is lovely soft purple and one of the InColors which will sadly retire in the next few months when 5 new InColors will be introduced.

I cannot stop using these Pierced Blooms dies. They are just fabulous!

My card base is Purple Posy with a layer of Highland Heather then a Basic White piece, dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D TIEF.

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

I love this colour combination: Rococo Rose – Purple Posy – So Saffron – Soft Sea Foam

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink and cut out with an electronic cutting machine if you have one, or simply fussy cut with Paper Snips. The sentiment and the flowers are popped up on dimensionals and everything else is glued with Multipurpose Glue.

How cute are those little Butterfly Gems – they come in all the 2019-2021 InColors.

On the inside I added another flower die cut and strips of card like on the front of the card!

Week 35 – Pool Party

Using the Darling Donkeys stamp set (FREE product during Saleabration with $90+ order) and the Kangaroo & Company stamp set, where I have used the presents image. I also stamped this image across the background of my card in Pool Party ink.

The donkey and presents are stamped in Memento ink onto Basic White card using the Stamparatus to line them up perfectly, then die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

The images are coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Real Red. The rhinestones are also coloured with the Pool Party Blends to coordinate with the cardstock. The present at the front, is also stamped with little star type images from the Darling Donkeys set.

Summer Theme for our final Monthly Creative Showcase 2020

AWHT Creative Showcase

Monthly Creative Showcase: Summer Theme

Tonight’s card is based on what Summer time means to me – hot days, school holidays, lazy days at home and boy, am I looking forward to the end of the school year!!!

This card is a bit of a mix of Melbourne and our holiday to Hanuama Bay, Hawaii, where we snorkelled with turtles!

The bright beach boxes are a true Melbourne icon and I have made mine in Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point and Real Red. The sand is So Saffron card as my base, with the wave patterned paper glued at the bottom and the top section is Shaded Spruce with Coastal Cabana behind for the palm trees. This was cut using the Friendly Silhouette dies.

That little turtle is cut out of the Whale of a Time DSP and the waves are also part of this paper stack. The Whale of a Time Sequins & shells are added with a glue dot.

While in isolation, it has been wonderful to have our travel memories, and to dream of one day going on another fantastic holiday.
