Are you loving Counting Sheep?!

Today’s project features two of the Saleabration items that can be selected free with qualifying orders, and the best part is, they coordinate!!! The Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep dies to cut them out and the extra fence, sun, balloon, clouds, flag and party hat!

Counting Sheep Cling Stamp set (156591) Saleabration 2021   Sheep Dies (156600) Saleabration 2021

Here is my card – I’ve used the Basic Borders Dies to cut the clouds (Basic White) and the rolling hills (Mint Macaron). The Blending Brushes adds some extra colour to the hills, using Mint Macaron and Pacific Point inks. The sky is also coloured with the Blending Brushes and Pacific Point ink.

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!

Hats Off for the Biggest Wish

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.

Wow, we have come to the end of the colours and what a wonderful year it was, with some amazing inspiration from our team!

Week 50 – Soft Suede

Soft Suede is from the Neutrals collection.

Colour Combination - Soft Suede Real Red Crushed Curry Basic White

I randomly stamped the background images (Biggest Wish stamp set) onto a Soft Suede card base in the same colour ink. The cap (Hats Off stamp set) is stamped onto Real Red card in Soft Suede and die cut with the coordinating Hat Builder dies. The patch is Soft Suede card and the lightening bolt is Crushed Curry card.

The patch is added with dimensionals, as is the cap to the card base.

On the inside I stamped with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede ink and added a Real Red Star die cut to carry over the colours from the front!

To finish off the front, I added some Crushed Curry faux resin dots to incorporate a little more interest.

Scenes under the Sea

Now it is October, we have a new Tutorial Bundle for you – some of the Art with Heart team ladies, including myself have put together 8 step by step tutorials to give you loads of fabulous ideas for using current Stampin’ Up! product. Each bundle contains 8 tutorials combined into a PDF package including colour photos, a supply list, measurements and comprehensive step by step instructions. Click here for more details. This bundle is $12AUD worldwide or free with a minimum $50 order from me in October 2020 (Australia only).

Scenes under the Sea

Here is another Whale of a Time Suite card which is very simple, just adding a couple of elements.

My card base is Balmy Blue with a piece of the designer paper creating the backdrop. This paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

The whale is punched from another sheet of DSP with the Whale Builder Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper is added above the whale spout and also some of the seaweed at the bottom. It just reminds me of looking down into a clear blue ocean with the element of shine and sparkle the water gives. I used the Forever Flourishing dies for these – who would have thought!!

This is such a simple card but this DSP creates the scene for you!

Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

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.

Let the Good Times Roll on Australia Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share this card using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue. You may remember I shared one earlier in January that was a feminine one, but today is my dads 70th birthday and I thought this was an appropriate card for him, as it brought back wonderful memories of the times he would take me on the rides at the theme parks while my mum & sister looked on in terror!!!! Dad & I loved them!!!

The base card measures 8¼” x 5⅞” and is folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Stampin Up Let the Good Times Roll Masculine card

Are you ready to see the magic happen as you open up the card to reveal the 3D pop up inside?

Let the Good Times Roll Masculine inside card Stampin Up

Who wouldn’t get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out so no more fussy cutting! I have used lots of colour as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Remember, here are the tips I found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Birthday card for the boys!

Dear Crafters,

Can you believe there are only 2 more days left of 2017?

Where on earth did this year go??? It all happened so fast and with Christmas done and dusted, it’s time to start thinking about Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue.

Today’s card is full of fun colour and uses the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set available in the Occasions catalogue starting in 3rd January!

What kid doesn’t love a party blower on their birthday? I know for sure that they are a hit amongst my girls and I’m sure little boys are no different!

Masculine card using Picture Perfect Birthday, Stampin' Up! by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia, DIY

I have used some beautiful bright colours for this card; Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party & Tempting Turquoise.

This stamp set is photopolymer, so lining up the stamps to create the party blowers is actually not as hard as it may seem. I just love this colour combination for boys and all the stamps in this set, make it so easy to create such a fun card.

I have made this card with my nephew in mind. His birthday is in January and he loves blues and greens, so perfect for him.

It’s a Roller Coaster Ride!

Dear Crafters,

Who doesn’t love a bright and colourful kids birthday card?!!! Today I am using the Let the Good Times Roll stamp set, with the coordinating Thrill Ride Pop-up Thinits dies (available in a bundle) from the upcoming Occasions catalogue due for release in January, and check them out!

Here is the front of the card. These little roller coaster cars are so cute with the birthday balloons hanging from them as they travel along the track.

but open the card and this is where the magic happens….

Check out the pop up on the inside!! Isn’t it amazing?! I have to admit, this card did take a bit of time to create, as it was quite fiddly and time consuming, but it is so worth it. You just need to take your time and keep manipulating the pieces to get it right. Make sure you score along the bottom of the roller coaster and along the edges on either side of the tracks with your bone folder, to make it easier too.

This card does fold flat to fit into a C6 envelope and can be mailed!!!

You’re sweet!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have some more cards using the Cool Treats Suite.

ice-creams-birthday-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions-2017-handmade-card-diy

There is nothing better than an ice cold treat when the sun is shining, especially today…. a public holiday in Melbourne!!!

ice-creams-birthday-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions-2017-handmade-card-diy-2

I love how the framelits cut inside the stamped image, so as not to leave a white border around the edges of the ice treats.

And here is another card with an ice cream using the same colour combination!

ice-cream-birthday-card-by-kate-morgan-stampin-up-demonstrator-australia-occasions-2017-handmade-card-diy

I love how quick and easy these cards are to make using a little stamping, die cutting and some Designer Papers!
