Bargello Technique with Fable Friends & All My Love DSP

Today, my card uses some left over strips from the Bargello Technique from an ATC card swap share I took part in during January with the Art With Heart Team.

How stunning is this colour combination of Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lpstick and White?!!!

I stamped the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set in Memento black ink and coloured her using Stampin’ Blends markers. I cut her out with paper snips and popped her up on dimensionals on the layering ovals. I added two little pearls to her coat. Isn’t she the cutest?!!!

The pearls in the top corner were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card. I adore this Lovely Lipstick ribbon which is part of the All My Love Combo pack.

Colour Creations: Daffodil Delight

AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop

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

I made this card for my nephew who turned 4 last week. Happy Birthday Mitchell ♥

I love Daffodil Delight with Blueberry Bushel together. I also love this new Buffalo Check stamp! How good does it look? I reckon it makes the perfect shirt for my pocket. I don’t have the Pocket Framelits, so I had to make my own. Once I got the shape right, I embossed it with the Subtles TIEF and then used my paper piercing tool to create the stitching. How good does it look? I wonder why there is a tab to pull with “LOOK’ on it?

I would have loved to see his face when he pulled the tab! Unfortunately I couldn’t be there to see him as they live in Paynesville, Gippsland, but I’m assured he was amazed to find some cash!

I think this sentiment is perfect for a 4 year old… isn’t every birthday the biggest occasion when you are a kid?!

Unicorns for a special birthday girl!

Hello Crafters,

Yesterday it was my little girls birthday and she turned 9! She has this fascination like every other 9 year old girl, with unicorns, so check out this card I made especially for her. She loved it! I got loads of inspiration from various Pinterest pages.

Unicorn birthday card using Stampin Up Tropical Chic by Kate Morgan Australia.

The Tropical Chic bundle was perfect for the flowers and I stamped them in the gorgeous bright colours of the inkpads shown in the image above onto Shimmery White card for that added sparkle. The coordinating dies made it super easy to cut them out.

The eyes I cheated and printed off the internet. I have to admit, I did try and failed twice trying to draw them by hand, so I went to the trusty old computer and found these cute whimsical eyelashes! The ears I cut out by hand too as was the Gold Glimmer horn, but these were much easier to do. I added some Wink of Stella to the pink centres of the ears.

The two small hearts were punch from a heart border punch from my retired stock, but it’s so handy for these types of projects. The sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and inked with Powder Pink ink before cutting with the Classic Label punch and trimmed at one end. I added it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Happy Dino-rrific 6th Birthday!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a 6th birthday card using the No Bones About It stamp set from the Annual catalogue. This is a photopolymer set, so it is completely clear to see exactly where you are stamping, which you need to create this card!

You see the card base is Emerald Envy with a large circle die cut in the centre.

Next I decorated the inside of the card with washi tape, and glued the layer down. Then I closed the card and stamped the solid image of the dinosaur through the circle to centre it.

I then die cut a large circle of window sheet, slightly bigger than the one used on the front of the card and glued it to the front. I then die cut the black scallop circle using 2 of the Layering Circles Framelits dies to create a border which is glued on top again to hide the edges of the window sheet.

Then I stamped the skeleton of the dinosaur on the window sheet with Archival black ink, so as to line it up perfectly.

Here you can see the layers of how the card opens with the window sheet on the front and the solid image stamped on the inside of the card!

The sentiment was stamped on white card and I used the Everyday Label punch to cut it out. It was too big, so I cut it down further by placing it back in the punch and making it smaller. The Leaf punch was used and added with mini dimensionals.

Here’s the inside of the card. I added the large number 6 die cut in silver foil. I used up some of my retired washi tape with the current Myths and Magic washi tape for some added sparkle!

Today I share my favourite Sale-a-bration product, and hands down, it has to be this bright and colourful Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz. Here are the colours:

Bubbles & Fizz DSP.jpg

I wanted to show you all the different designs, so what better way to do it, than with the herringbone technique!

Bubble Over Suite Bubbles & Fizz DSP Stampin Up Saleabration 2018 by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia..jpg

I sliced the DSP into 1/2″ x 12″ strips. I took a piece of scrap card cut to 4″ x 5-5/8″ and covered it in Fast Fuse. Then I began placing the strips starting with the Lemon Lime Twist bubbles one across the centre. I kept adding strips in different directions, cutting them off at the edge of the card. This creates an amazing background!

The Stitched Shapes Circle Framelits, break up all the straight lines and helps take the eye to the feature of the bottle like a target.

I die cut the large bottle in white card from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies. I used a sponge dauber to add some Lemon Lime Twist ink to it, applying more at the bottom and lighter at the top. Check out those gorgeous Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes on the bottle. I even used some of the extra strips to decorate the inside of the card!

For my next card, I have used the same Designer Series Paper with the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure with the Trifold Shutter card technique.

I coloured the images using a blender pen and ink pads; Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate. The Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to die cut the shoes image.

As you can see, this DSP can be used in many different ways, not just with the Bubble Over Suite!

Happy 7th Birthday Nicola!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another project using the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle and the Large Number Framelits. Sorry for the reflection, it has been quite gloomy here in Melbourne and very difficult to photograph!

This card was made for a gorgeous little girls 7th birthday party that we attended on Saturday.

Foxy Friends, Kitty Cat, 7th Birthday, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade

I started by applying some of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to the background of the card and then a grass was added. I cut a strip of cucumber crush card and used the fringe scissors to create this.

I stamped the cat & punched the pieces out with the Fox builder punch. The stump and the mushrooms were stamped and fussy cut.

Can you see the Stampin’ Write Marker lines on the Banner and the 7? How did I draw that line so evenly around them, you ask? Well, when I die cut the images, before I took them out of the die, I traced that line around the inside of the die and did small dots, then I removed the card from the metal dies. Clever hey?!!!!!

I had great fun creating this card for Nicola’s 7th Birthday party on Saturday!

I am Robot

Dear Crafters,

Robot Boys will be Boys #stampinup

Today I share a card for the boys using the stamp set, Boys Will Be Boys!

My base is Tip Top Taupe card stock with a layer of Whisper White card stock, then some Go Wild DSP.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad onto Watercolour paper and coloured with an Aquapainter and Inkpad. I rounded only 2 diagonal corners of the watercolour paper and the opposite on the Tip Top Taupe card behind it!

Robot Boys will be Boys #stampinup

I added some Candy Dots and ribbon for detail.

They’re entirely transparent for perfect image placement, and they adhere well to our clear blocks. You’ll only need one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately). The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

But guess what? I’m not using the letters today, well actually just not as they are intended!

Check out this little fella ~ does he remind you of anyone in particular? Yes, the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Layered Letters Hungry Caterpillar

I have used our new In Colours to create this card.

The base card is Cucumber Crush with a layer of Watermelon Wonder.

Layered Letters Hungry Caterpillar

The stamped images (solid circle) are using the same colours with Tip Top Taupe on Whisper White cardstock.

His eyes are punched out with the circle punch and the dot from the ! is used to create the eyeballs and the nose!

His legs are the ends of the I and the antennae is the letter V!!!!

Layered Letters Hungry Caterpillar

On the inside of the card, I stamped 3 plums in Perfect Plum ink (of course) and the stems are top half of the letter L.

Let me know what you think of this card!

This is not my original idea, but CASED from Carolina Evans of Studio Evans!
