Masculine Fun Fold 3D Shutter 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 29 – Merry Merlot

Today’s card was inspired by Amy Shihinski (in Canada), but I needed to change it up to suit our Metric measurements here in the South Pacific. If you wish to see Amy’s measurements, there will be a link at the end of this post.

I made this card for my hubby’s birthday on Sunday. He accompanied me to Sydney so I could attend OnStage on Saturday with 500 crafty friends, he spent the day wandering around Sydney by himself and had a wonderful time. Not sure why he wouldn’t attend OnStage with me, LOL!

Anyway, I carefully carried this card all the way to Sydney in my luggage to surprise him on Sunday morning.

I have used the Brewed for You Bundle and the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Brushed Metallic Foil.

The stamping is all done in Black Memento, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot inks and die cut using the coordinating Brewed dies. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint was added to the beer glasses and heated with the Heat Tool to activate.

Here is the real wow of this card when you open it!

You may notice that the sentiments and the beer glass look a little different on the inside, as they were not going to fit on the card. Never fear, I just adapted. The glass wasn’t going to fit as it was too tall, so I cut the top off down to the beer level and added the froth! The sentiments across the centre panels, I had to carefully ink up individual words, covering the ones I didn’t want, covered with some washi tape (remember to remove the tape before stamping onto the card though!).

Here are my measurements (metric):
Merry Merlot A5 card base: 14.8cm x 21cm, scored in half @ 10.5cm
Basic White Card insert: 20cm x 14cm (see image below)
Merry Merlot Matt layers: 4.5cm x 4.5cm (8), 2cm x 3.5cm (4), 4.5cm x 3.5cm (2)
Lights Aglow SDSP layers: 4cm x 4cm (4)
Gold Foil layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 1.5cm x 3cm (4)
Basic White layers: 4cm x 4cm (2), 4cm x 3cm (2)

Elegant Quatrefoil Tile Fancy Fold design

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

My fancy fold card is elegant and looks difficult, but it is actually quite easy to make.

Starting with a Cherry Cobbler card base with 2 scorelines (either end) and dry embossed with the Quatrefoil Tile Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (I folded the end tabs to the front and embossed it like that so it fit into the folder).

Decorated Pine Fancy Fold card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auatralia 2022.

A piece of gold Brushed Metallic cardstock is placed inside the card (centred), then run the Stampin’ Seal adhesive along the right hand side only. Fold the right front panel down to adhere.

Dry emboss an extra strip of cardstock and add Stampin’ Seal on the back. Holding the card closed, adhere it to the centre on the Gold Foil.

Add some Basic White card stock to the inside and stamp your sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink.

Cut a piece of the Lights Aglow Specialty DSP into a 3″ x 3″ square and adhere this to a piece of 2⅞” x 2⅞” cardstock for added stability. Add Stampin’ Seal to the back (ensuring only to add to 2/3s from the RHS). The left side panel sits under the diamond (on top of the gold) to stay closed!

Decorate the diamond feature with a Gold foil bell, a bow and some pine needles from the Decorated Pines dies. Finally, I added Wink of Stella to the holly in the sentiment and some Pearlized Enamel Effects in red to the berries.

Believe in the magic

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

My card designs today are very simple, but with Vanilla and Gold, they have loads of shine!

Colour Combination - Cobbler Succulent Vanilla Gold

Card 1
The Lights Aglow Specialty Designer paper in the background has the gold accents. Then I also swiped my Versamark ink pad around all edges, sat it in some Gold Emboss Powder, removed any excess before heat setting it. Doesn’t it look great without adding bulk of an extra layer of card.
I repeated this same process on the centre panel. The Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set was used with the Stamparatus to line up the sentiment, although being photopolymer, the images are clear so you can line them up easily. The outline is Gold embossed and then I used my Soft Succulent ink for the solid image.

Here you can see the gold embossing better in the sentiment and around the edges, also the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the hat and the Fine Tip Glue on the lights!

Card 2
This card features more of the Lights Aglow Specialty DSP, with the panel down the left and the Christmas tree is cut from my favourite design. I thought it was perfect as I didn’t need to decorate the tree!

The card base is dry embossed with the Wintry 3D folder.  Some Gold Shimmer Ribbon is wrapped around the Vanilla DSP, then a bow tied on the front. This panel is adhered with Stampin’ Seal. The tree is added on Dimensionals as is the star on top. The base is die cut from the gold Brushed Metallic cardstock and glued to the card – just look at that detail?!!! It is so gorgeous in metallics!

The sentiment from the Trees for Sale stamp set are stamped in Versamark ink, gold emboss powder added and then melted with my Heat Tool. I used my Paper Snips to cut around the words, then glued to the tree.

Trimming the Tree cards

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with coordinating dies! Tonight I have two cards using the Trimming the Tree Bundle (save 10%). The Trimming the Tree stamp set is already in the catalogue, but the Tree Trimming dies are exclusive to the Perfect Partners promotion and are only available while supplies last during September (they will not be available in future catalogues).

Card 1 – I have added a layer of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Thick Basic White card base. I placed the tree stamp onto the Stamparatus plate and inked it up with Mint Macaron. I also took a sponge dauber and some Garden Green ink and daubed some around the edges before stamping onto Basic White card. Using the coordinating dies, cut out the tree and some of the little bows from 2022-24 In Color Glimmer paper.

Trimming the Tree Christmas card for Heart of Chistmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The base is die cut from Kraft card. The Fabulous Frames dies were used to cut the 4 corner pieces from Gold Foil. The vellum was run through my Cut & Emboss machine in the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. Doesn’t it look amazing?!

Glue the Gold Foil pieces to the vellum layer and add the tree on dimensionals. Place glue on the back of the vellum behind all the pieces added so it doesn’t show through once dry. Adhere this to the card. I finished off with a Gold & Vanilla Satin edged ribbon bow adhered with a glue dot.

Card 2 – The card base is Evening Evergreen. The patterned paper in the background is from the Lights Aglow Specialty DSP with a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the join. Adhere this to the card base.

Trimming the Tree Lights Aglow Christmas card for Heart of Chistmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

The tree is die cut from a piece of the Gingham Cottage DSP with a Distressed Gold Specialty paper star and basket. The bows are die cut from the 2022-24 In Color Glimmer paper. The sentiment is stamped onto Basic White card in Mint Macaron ink and die cut. The tree and sentiment are added on dimensionals.

Diamond Christmas Tree

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Now here’s a different style Christmas card, using diamonds to create the Christmas tree!

Diamond Christmas Tree card using Stampin Up Lights Aglow SDSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

This card is a 5″ x 5″ square design and I added an extra panel to the front which the diamonds are adhered to (the join is behind the patterned papers). The sentiment (Brightest Glow) is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and set using the Heat Tool. Using Paper Snips, I cut the banners at each end. I added this with Black Dimensionals.

Christmas Spanner card

Spanner Panel card using Stampin Up Tree Lot Dies by Kate Morgan, Australia Heart of Christmas 2022

I have lots of patterned papers on this fancy fold card and I love all the metallic foil highlights on them; Boughs of Holly DSP, Lights Aglow SDSP, Metallic & Shimmer SDSP and the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I’m not sure if you can tell that there is some Vellum behind the windows on the caravan?!

Spanner Panel card using Stampin Up Tree Lot Dies by Kate Morgan, Australia Heart of Christmas 2022 front

When you open the front panel you have this spanner effect. The sentiment and die cut circles (Stylish Shapes dies) are 1 size smaller than the ones of the front of the card; this is so they hide neatly behind the top layer.

Then open the centre panel to reveal the next layer for your message. I have used the Wink of Stella on the Holly leaves and added Pearlized Enamel Effects in red for the berries. Both sentiments (Very Best Occasion stamp set) are stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.
