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.

Colour Creations Showcase: Mango Melody is a Whisky Business

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 24 – Mango Melody

This is a super bright colour and not one I use a lot of, but I recently purchased this stamp set, Whiskey Business during the sale and wanted to ink it up!

I used the Misty Moonlight pages from the 2020–2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper pack and the In Good Taste DSP to create a bench for the images to sit on.

The images are stamped in Gray Granite on White card and coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo. They are fussy cut and added to the card on dimensionals. The ice cubes have Shimmery Crystal Effects added for texture. The sentiment is stamped in the Mango Melody ink on the same colour card and cut up then glued directly to the card.

On the inside I simply added off cuts of the DSP and stamped a simple sentiment.

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!

A World of Good

Now that you have seen the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue, what are your top products that you want to buy or have already purchased? If you are anything like me, I couldn’t wait for 3 June to arrive!!!! 💜

This World of Good Suite was top of my list (along with a few others, hehe) and I love that we have a few more masculine products to select from this year. I really struggle creating masculine cards, but this suite is just fantastic with all the coordinating products to choose from!

The designer paper I have used today is from the one sheet. I just cut one third off, flipped it over and glued it to my card! This is a great way of seeing both sides of the papers.

World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Do you see that feather? Well the die doesn’t emboss all that detail on it, so I just used the stylus from my Simply Scored and added all those lines, freehand!

The sentiment is stamped on Early Espresso card in Verssmark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is new and it is fantastic. You can make 3 different width sizes and 2 different fancy shapes at the ends of the labels and you can make any length, all from the one punch!!!

It is hard to see in this picture below, but the Brass Foiling on the paper is so bright and shiny; it’s a real wow!

Colour Creations Showcase – Balmy Blue

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Today is the first day we begin this new adventure of the Colour Creations Showcase. You may recall we did one of these with the last colour refresh a year or two ago, and it was loads of fun, so every Wednesday we will bring to you, projects showcasing one particular Stampin’ Up! colour. There are 50 colours in the collection and today we begin with Balmy Blue!

For today’s card I am using the stamp set, A Good Man and some of the new designer series paper, World of Good, along with some other new products available in the Annual catalogue.

My colour combination

Balmy Blue Night of Navy Whisper White Early Epresso

The designer paper is given that aged look with the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. It is just perfect for this project, don’t you think?

The image is stamped with Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies. I ran the Saddle Brown Stazon ink pad around the edges of this die cut image (and the Designer Paper) to add that aged look.

On the inside of the card, I added a layer of Balmy Blue and Whisper White card and stamped the sentiment and a heart in coordinating inks.

Breathtaking Bouquet with Pigment Sprinkle water colours!

Have you ever tried water colouring with the Pigment Sprinkles? No, well check out these vibrantly coloured cards!

I placed a tiny amount of pigment sprinkles onto a clear block and used my AquaPainter to add water and start colouring. You can also mix the colours to get a huge variety of colour.

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark on Black and Gold Embossed (heat set) before fussy cutting.

This one has been done the same way, but swapping the flower colours, changes it up so much, along with a different card base.

The sentiment is created exactly the same as the previous card.

Farewell Country Club

I am very sad to be saying farewell to this amazing bundle of products; Country Club suite, and the end of the month. Having parents who are keen golfers, this has been a wonderful addition to my crafting stash!

SITR Country Club Suite 2020 Mini by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia

The centre layer is a piece of 4″ x 4″ white card stock placed in the Stamparatus and stamped in a circle using a template that I made. You can find loads of video tutorials on this technique, Stamp in the Round on YouTube. The mat layer is Terracotta Tile card on the DSP and all layered onto a Garden Green card base.

Have you tried this technique? I adore it!

My next card to share with you focuses on the Designer Papers and the Stamp & Die bundle!

Straight to the Clubhouse

Tonight’s card was super quick to make with just some DSP, embellishments and stamping. By adding a few die cuts to add some interest, this card was done in no time!

Cut the piece of DSP 5mm smaller than your card front, then cut it at 8cm and flip the smaller piece over and glue them to the front of the card! I put some twine across this join with a couple of glue dots holding it down.

These wood elements are so awesome for adding texture to your cards. Simply stamp a sentiment on the shield with Black Stazon ink so it doesn’t bleed (don’t ask me how I know)! This particular stamp is from the A Good Man stamp set.

A Good Man is very masculine

Tonight I have a masculine card using the stamp set, A Good Man!

A Good Man masculine card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019.JPG

I adore these images and just looking at it makes me take a deep breathe and think of relaxing by the seaside, and taking time for ourselves to just breathe.

This is also perfect timing with Father’s Day coming up and the images in this set are just ideal for that special man in your life.

The image is coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers; Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray Combos and Light Crumb Cake for the skin tones and Light Pool Party framing around the entire image to add some depth.

Here is another one I made with a different image.

Masculine Trifold card to sail home

Tonight’s card is a fancy trifold card using the Sailing Home bundle. Purchase this stamp set and coordinating dies together and save 10%.

don’t you just love these colours together? I sure do and they are Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate and a Soft Suede wheel!

Trifold card using Stampin Up Sailing Home Bundle by Kate Morgan, Australia, 2019 Fancy Folds

I love using Designer paper as the card base. When they are double sided, you want to show off both sides of the paper and this is a great fold to do this. Don’t you agree?

I popped up the lighthouse and the anchor on dimensionals for added depth and tied a little piece of twine through the anchor.
