Sneak Peek Blessings of Home

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 25 – Mango Melody

Tonight I am sharing a sneak peek of the new Heart & Home Collection; including the Blessings of Home stamp set, Flowers of Home dies, Heart & Home DSP and Classic Matte Dots which will be available in the new January–June 2022 Mini Catalogue available early in the new year. I was very fortunate to attend the OnStage (virtual) event last weekend for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators only. This was one of the Collections that we could preorder last month to use during the event. Mango Melody is not one of the colours in the suite, but I thought it actually worked quite well with this particular patterned paper.

IMG_7050

Mango Melody is a very bright colour and not one I use a lot, but by using it with the watercolour technique, can create a softer tone. This is the only ink colour I used on these petals and Garden Green for the leaves and stem. The outline is stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Watercolour Paper. Some Wink of Stella was added to the centre of each flower.

IMG_7052

On the inside I added a layer of Mango Melody card under the white layer with an offcut of the same DSP from the front.

IMG_7053

The Square Vellum Doilies over the Garden Green die cut centre piece (Scalloped Contours dies) adds a layer for the image to really stand out. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody ink on white card and end ends cut at an angle before popping up on Mini Dimensionals.

Farewell Purple Posy

With the new Annual catalogue launching on 4th May, we will say farewell to 5 InColors.

2019 - 2021 In Colours

Following on from Monday’s post, I am sharing my love with the Pansy Patch Bundle again. Purple Posy is a brilliant trio with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. You may notice some of the new In Colors too, in Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya!

I was inspired by the pansies that I have growing in pots in my outdoor area. I love the pops of colour these gorgeous, delicate blooms provide.

IMG_4407

My card base is Gorgeous Grape, the layer is Purple Posy and the Layering Circles dies are Highland Heather. The white layer is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The large pansy is die cut from the three purples and a Pale Papaya centre. The smaller pansies are stamped in the Pale Papaya using the Stamparatus. The outline is stamped twice to get that lovely darker tone and the centre is stamped off once for a much lighter tone. The leaves are done the same way with Soft Succulent ink.

On the inside a single pansy is stamped and a small strip of Purple Posy card down the left side, with plenty of room to write a birthday message.

Sneak Peek with Pansies Galour!

With the new Annual catalogue launching on 4th May, I thought I would share some sneak peek items to get you as excited as me. I am in love with the Pansy Patch Bundle, in fact the entire Pansy Petals Suite!

The designer paper has all of the new In Colors and more. You will also see the Basic Borders dies in use on each card – these are a must have item to add to your supplies – I just love them and know I will use them heaps.

Meet Pale Papaya and the gorgeous Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Each of these cards has a strip of DSP on the inside, which shows through to the fronts of the cards. The InColor ribbon is so beautiful, as are the InColor Jewels. The pansies on the front are cut from the DSP with the dies.

Here is Fresh Freesia with Blackberry Bliss and both the new greens for the stems and leaves.

Soft Succulent is my favourite of the greens and here I have also cut a second border in the Evening Evergreen.

I adore these gold Bumblebee Trinkets too!

This is how I decorated the inside of each card, with a strip of DSP and narrow strip of the card base colour.

Are you loving this suite as much as me? I can’t wait to play some more with different colour combinations of these pansies.

Creative Showcase Sketch

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the May Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase May 2020 Sketch

Now let’s get started!

Today’s card uses the Ornate Garden Suite and the Peaceful Poppies Suite of
Products, all which will still be available in the new Annual catalogue starting 3 June!

Olive Balmy Navy White Flirty

The front of the Balmy Blue card base is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, before a layer of Old Olive card, die cut with the Ornate Layers dies. A Piece of DSP is added, long with other elements you can see.

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

This centre feature is the ornate style stamp set image stamped onto some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and die cut in a circle. I’ve coloured the image, gently in a dabbing motion so as not to ruin them, with Stampin’ Blends Markers. How pretty does it look?!!

Trifold card using Stampin Up Ornate Garden & Peaceful Poppies Suites by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

On the inside I have the same image stamped on Whisper White card stock, coloured the same way and fussy cut. This is glued to the Champagne Foil Sheet, die cut with the gorgeous Ornate Layers dies. The Navy card is embossed with the new Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

But then you open it again to reveal the inside of the card!

How did I do that? The card consists of 2 standard card bases, but the Navy one is flipped over and opens in the opposite direction and is glued behind the Balmy Blue card base!

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Handmade Cards, Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Do you know someone who loves golf?

Wow, it’s almost the end of another decade 😲 Where has the year gone? Did it disappear as fast for you too?!!!

Tonight’s card is another sneak peek of the Country Club Suite – but this is a quick and easy one to recreate. Simply using a piece of the Country Club Designer Series Paper, cover the front of the card.

Masculine card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front

To make the collar, I used the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle dies, and placed it on an angle so the bottom section of the die is at the corner of the card and the centre. Once you have this piece cut, use it as a template to cut the other side exactly the same size. The centre piece with the buttons, I just used the same die cutting a couple of times to get a narrow piece. Glue this piece down before the collar. The buttons are the small golf ball dies in Whisper White card stock!

The gold clubs are die cut in Garden Green card stock.

Stamp the envelope and the inside of the card to tie them all together.

Merry Christmas with a twist!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday and you were able to have a quieter day today to recover!

Tonight I have another sneak peek for you with the Country Club Suite available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

My parents have been very keen golfers for many years and all my Dad wanted for Christmas was a handmade card. So, when this suite arrived just before Christmas, I knew I had to use it, but with a twist to make it a Christmas card.

Christmas card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front.jpg

No the tees, golf balls and grass are not upside down LOL, they were deliberately placed like this to look like Christmas baubles hanging down from some greenery!!!

See those golf balls? They are wood elements and I embossed them! Yes, I ran them through my machine using the large golf ball die to get those dimples on the balls!!! Give it a go, the outcome is so cool.

Colours: Garden Green, Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy

On the inside, I carried the theme through and added the golf image by colouring it with Stampin’ Write Markers direct to the stamp to get the colouring of the grass, tee and ball!

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tropical

Tonight I have another sneak peek for some Tropical goodness available in the new Mini Catalogue starting on 3 January 2020!!!

The Tropical Oasis Suite is one not to miss. You can see loads of this suite used on this card; the Timeless Tropical stamp set, In the Topics dies, Coastal Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Tropical Oasis Trinkets and the Braided Burlap Trim!

Tropical Oasis Suite by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia. Mini catalogue 2020

How gorgeous is that Coastal Weave embossing folder?!!! Oh my, I just adore it! I sponged the edges of this layer with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

The Braided Burlap Ribbon is soft and at the ends, I pulled it gently so that it started to unravel for a more coastal feel. I tied one of the trinkets to it with some Linen Thread.

The Hibiscus flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink and then I used a Blender Pen to gently move some of the colour around. This method was also used on the leaves (Garden Green ink). The centre of the flower is coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker with some Wink of Stella on the stamen.

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

Tonight I’m sharing a sneak peek of one of the bundles in the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue; Piece of Cake stamp set with coordinating Cake Builder punch!

If you would like to get your hands on some of these new products before next year, you can do so by joining my team and adding this to your starter kit. Ask me how!

Piece of Cake for Colour Creations Mango Melody Blog Hop, Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2019

My card base is Mango Melody and I randomly stamped the cake image on the same ink colour across the front of the card. I stamped the same image on Whisper White card and punched it out with the Cake Builder punch. I also stamped the flowers and fussy cut them to add to the top of the cake. I applied Wink of Stella to the flowers and the flowers on the cake. Not sure if you can see that in the photo?!

The stand is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold emboss powder. I coloured part of it with the Stampin Write Marker. I layered some Coastal Cabana card and white card with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. These layers were all sponged around the edges with a dauber.

The sentiment is stamped and the Classic Label Punch to cut it out and add with a dimensional.

Convention Gifts

Dear Crafters,

Well as you know I am back from Convention and now I wanted to share with you the little gifts I made for my two roomies!

Convention Gifts

I started with some A5 notebooks which were spiral bound and covered them with DSP. I knew that one of my roomies favourite colour is blue and the other loves oranges and purples, so they are the colours I chose!

Convention Gift  Convention Gift

I also added some DSP to the biro, by pulling out the ink and sliding in the dsp around it.

Convention Gift  Convention Gift

I also made some scissor bling for each of them that they can put on their scissors when they return home! There is nothing worse than not being able to identify your own scissors when crafting with a group of friends.

I know both the ladies loved their gifts and even used their pen and notebook to write their wish list when we received the catalogue on the first day of Convention!
