Week 26 – Melon Mambo

Tonight I have a little sneak peek of a new stamp set available in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, called In the Moment Cling Stamp Set.

In the Moment stamp set for Melon Mambo CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The main image is stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers. I stamped the image again onto some patterned paper (the same piece as the scalloped frame), fussy cut it and glued it to the stamped image. This technique is called Paper Piecing. Once this was done, I felt it needed a lovely blue sky, so I used the Blending Brushes with the Pool Party ink and the cloud shape from the Basic Borders dies to create the sky. I continued this to the bottom of the white card, as this lady is on a top balcony of a Gold Coast highrise apartment on holidays, enjoying a 5 o’clock wine (are you with me?!!) I think all this time in lockdown has me yearning for a holiday 😉

This is the inside with more clouds at the top, a sentiment and some scalloped edging at the bottom using the two patterned papers and the Scalloped Countours dies.

Ever Eden SITR Christmas card

Tonday I have a square card featuring the Eden’s Garden stamp set, Ever Eden Specialty DSP and the technique, Stamping in the Round or Wreath Builder stamping, using the Stamparatus. I used Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Gold Delicata inks.

This Ever Eden Specialty DSP has gorgeous gold foil accents (dots) on this piece. The Garden Gems were added to finish it off. The sentiment is from Peaceful Deer stamp set and stamped in Evening Evergreen on Soft Succulent card and die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

Easy Tidings of Christmas card

Tonight is a very simple card with Tidings of Christmas designer paper, Red and Green Foil die cuts and a stamped sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. Sorry about the fuzzy/rough edges of my cardbase, think I may need a new blade on my Paper Trimmer 😜

Holly Jolly Christmas by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The Seasonal Labels dies have both these fancy layering labels and the Red Foil one was die cut from the centre of the large background Red Foil layer so as not to waste it (it gets covered up)!

Encircled in Beauty Christmas Bauble

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am using the Encircled in Beauty dies to create my Christmas bauble.

Encircled in Beauty Christmas Bauble by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Using the various dies in this pack, I alternated the sizes between Basic White and Silver Foil (the purple toned sheet).  There is also one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind the sentiment layer, can you spot it?!!

The sentiment is from Peaceful Deer stamp set and is stamped in Smoky Slate ink to coordinate with the card base. I used a Sponge Dauber to add ink around the edges of the patterned paper layer, Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Soft Succlent ribbon tied in a double bow with some Genial Gems finished my project off beautifully.

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 21 – Gray Granite

Tonight I am using the Plentiful Plants Bundle which I got for my birthday recently! I don’t have any of the patterned papers that coordinate with it, but I found some leafy designs in the Christmas papers, Painted Christmas DSP that was perfect, along with the In Good Taste DSP.

Plentiful Plants Bundle for Gray Granite CCBH by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The macrame hanging basket was die cut using the In Good Taste DSP. The same pattern is in the background across the card. The pot is stamped in Gray Granite ink and the plants in Soft Succulent ink. The scallop border die is from the Contours dies, set to be a firm favourite!

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with my Heat Tool. I added a gorgeous Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon bow and In Color Jewels.

On the inside, I added some more coordinating plants in a plant stand in the bottom corner.

CCS – Nothing’s Better than Chocolate!

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour for our Colour Creations Showcase is Crumb Cake!

Nothing’s Better Than Chocolate during lockdown 2.0, so tonight I have a yummy card to share with you!

Nothing's Better Than Chocolate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020 Colour Creations Showcase Crumb Cake

Whether you like dark, milk, white or some other variety, there is usually some flavour that you can enjoy when it comes to chocolate. Well, my preference is dark, but this card features more of a Top Deck style block! Using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for my chocolate layers and the Dainty Diamonds TIEF to give a bit of a classy and more exclusive effect to my block. Every piece of card to create this chocolate has been sponged around the edges to give a real depth to it. Yes, it took some time, but it is so much more effective and pleasing on the eye.

Nothing's Better Than Chocolate card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020, Colour Creations Showcase Crumb Cake

The inside is also decorated with a piece of chocolate as well as some stamping and more layered die cutting!

The piece of foil adds to the authenticity of a real block of chocolate being ripped open.

Stamparatus Storage with Monogram Tag

Dear Crafters,

I’m popping in this morning for this brief post, as I’m heading to Sydney this morning for the OnStage event tomorrow at Luna Park!

I won’t be able to share all the excitement until Tuesday when the spoiler alert ban is lifted, but I’m certain there will be lots of new product and gorgeous goodies in the upcoming Annual catalogue, a copy of which I will get my hands on tomorrow!

Today I share something I have created for Bev who is going to Sydney with me. We usually make swaps (card fronts) to take to these events to swap with other demonstrator friends, but I completely ran out of time with work being so busy and with Easter on top of that 😦

You may remember I posted earlier in the week with a different form of storage for the Stamparatus to sit on your desk, you can see it here if you missed it, but today I have this idea for travelling with your Stamparatus!

Luckily I managed to get my hands on a couple of these toiletry bags from Kmart which are the perfect size and storage idea to fit our new Stamparatus. I’m guessing there will be many others who rush out and purchase one, and they only come in black, so I needed to find a way to make them our own, and what better way than with a Monogram tag!

Shrink plastic Monogram tag for Stamparatus storage using Stampin Up Large Letters, Bloomin Love by Kate Morgan, Craft with Kate, Australia.JPG

First of all, I die cut the 3rd largest die from the Lots of Labels Framelits and cut the shape from Shrink Plastic (or shrinky dinks), then punch a hole at one end. It’s critical you do this before heating and shrinking it! Next, stamp your images. I’ve used Basic Black archival ink for the large letter and Pumpkin Pie ink to stamp the heart from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. Then let the magic begin as you heat it with your heat tool and watch it shrink!

Here’s a closer look.

and here is the toiletry bag open…. it actually could hold 2 Stamparatus if you had them, as an easier way to transport them to Workshops outside of your home!

and once I made Bev’s, I had to make one for myself, of course!  I love butterflies, so I stamped them in Bermuda Bay ink. The small mobile phone lanyards were purchased on eBay.
