Darling Donkeys on your birthday

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 35 – Pool Party

This birthday card is so much fun, with the donkey kicking up the pile of presents… I can almost hear it laughing!!!

Darling Donkeys Birthday card for Pool Party Colour Creations Showcase by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

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.

Colour Creations Showcase – Coastal Cabana

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Coastal Cabana!

This is such a beautiful colour and it always makes your projects beam with happiness. Today is my youngest daughter’s birthday, and I made this card for her. This is birthday #2 in lockdown!

I used Coastal Cabana as my card base and Coastal Cabana features heavily in the Playing with Patterns Designer Paper.

This is my first time creating with these Stitched Triangle dies and I just love them, especially with this patterned paper. Die cutting many triangles in each of the 3 designs and placing them onto the card with dimensionals so they have some extra height.

I also used the Well Written dies for the sentiment, banners and the butterfly which are glued on top of the triangles on the front of this card.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside with a strip of coordinating patterned paper and in this case, a wonderful sentiment using the Family Party stamp set! I also added a couple of the Purple Posy Butterfly Gems for added interest. Aren’t they sweet?!!!

Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique with Timeless Tulips

This is not a colour combination I would usually choose, but I got my inspiration from the patterned paper, Plaid Tidings DSP.

Colour Combination - MM MM GAG WW

Timeless Tulips Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Technique: rub your inkpads onto your craft mat, next to each other but not touching, covering about the same size area as your paper. Spritz with water. You can used a bone folder or palette knife to blend the colour into each other. Place a piece of White tissue paper on top and let it absorb the colour. Carefully lift the tissue paper and place it onto some paper towel to dry.

Place some adhesive sheet onto a piece of white cardstock and remove the wax layer so the entire sheet is sticky. Scrunch up the tissue paper, open it up and stick it to the card. Punch out your tulips with the Tulip Builder Punch.

The Mango Melody card is embossed with the Wrapped in Texture TIEF and the Melon Mambo card base is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The white circle is cut using the Stitched Shapes dies, stamped and added to the card with dimensionals for some height.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set, before fussy cutting it out and adding it with Mini Dimensionals. Add some glittered enamel dots and a ribbon bow to finish.

Colour Creations Showcase – Calypso Coral

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Calypso Coral!

I love the Whale of a Time Bundle and on this card, I have teamed it up with the High Tide & Well Said stamp sets and the Well Written Dies!

I used the Rock n Roll technique to stamp the whale on whisper white card before cutting it out with the Whale builder punch. The other image were stamped on the Nested Stitched Label die cut and the whale added with dimensionals!

To create the background, I used the “light beam” stamp from the High Tide stamp set and repeatedly stamped in different colours, cleaning the stamp quickly on the Simply Shammy between colours.

Just Jade Birthday

Just Jade, one of the 5 new In Colors, is so pretty and I can see that I will be using it lots over the coming months. It is a true green and will go with almost every other colour in the Stampin’ Up! collection. Here is how it compares to the other greens:

Just Jade Comparison

I ordered the new In Color Designer Paper pack and thought I would show you all the different patterns available in the one pack of paper. I have cut 4 strips and adhered them to a layer of white card.

Just Jade

I took a length of ribbon, tied a bow in the centre of it and then wrapped the ends around the card and glued them behind. This layer was then glued to the Just Jade card base, then decorated with the die cut word sentiments, sprig punches and a stamped fussy cut bird. This image is coloured with Blends Markers and popped up on dimensionals.
