Feminine Magenta Peony

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 24 – Magenta Madness

This is a really bold colour and can be a bit overwhelming, so tonight I have toned it right down by colouring this flower using the Wink of Stella directly with the ink from the lid of the inkpad. This gives a watercolour look, but also gives it a beautiful sparkle at the same time (not that you can see it in the photos)!!!

The Prized Peony stamp set has this gorgeous large stamped image that is inked in Misty Moonlight ink.

Prized Peony Feminine Card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The patterned paper is called Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper and I’ve used the Scalloped Contours dies to the centre piece and the Basic White layer. I made some Faux Resin Dots in Magenta Madness and added some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, tied in a bow.

Did you have a win on the Melbourne Cup yesterday? I don’t follow the horse racing but I am thankful for the day off work and yesterday’s weather was glorious!

Week 23 – Just Jade

This card is created using the product suite, Bloom Where You’re Planted. The Basic Border dies were used to cut either end of the Gray Granite card to create a panel. I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to create the pattern with the same colour ink.

Plentiful Plants Bundle by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The hanging basket is die cut from the Silver Foil and the bow is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribobn Combo Pack. The foliage is stamped in Just Jade and Soft Succulent. The front plant has Wink of Stella on it, but it doesn’t show very well in the photo. The pot in the hanging basket is stamped in Gray Granite.

On the inside a piece of the DSP is added along the bottom and die cut pot and plant from the patterned paper were added with a stamped sentiment.

Sweet Strawberry clean design

Today’s project is a simple and clean design with loads of white space, which I love!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set hasn’t seen a lot of love this year and it was time to ink it up again.

Sweet Strawberry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

The only cardstock I have used is Thick Basic White. the first layer has an embossed border which was created using the Simply Scored. The fancy layer is cut using the Contours Dies and the circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the image onto the Contour die with Sahara Sand ink, then onto the circle. This was coloured using Blends Combo Markers; Soft Succulent and Flirty Flamingo. Then I placed the circle facedown onto the Simply Scored and scored every 1/8″ to add some texture. Glue this to the card. I stamped one of the flowers again, coloured it then fussy cut it and added it to the card with a mini dimensional and a coloured rhinestone. The sentiment was also fussy cut and added on mini dimensionals. To finish I added a double linen thread bow and extra rhinestone jewels.

Here is a closer look at the centrepiece

A simple but elegant design, don’t you think?!!!

The owl is one of the preprinted pieces from the Pack and it is popped up on dimensionals. A small tag is die cut and ‘thanks’ stamped on it and placed just below, as though the owl is delivering an important message!

Peaceful Place card using half sheet of DSP

Today’s card uses the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Silver accents are stunning for Christmas sparkle. The tree on the front is die cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP using the Christmas Trees dies!

Peaceful Place DSP & Whimsical Trees card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2021 front

For this card, I used a 12″ x 6″ piece of the DSP and scored it in half at 6″ and then from each end at 1-7/8″. Fold these ends into the card and adhere.  This is a very easy way of showcasing both sides of these gorgeous patterned papers!

The Basic White insert measures 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″, folded in half lengthwise. Adhere this to the centre of the card and this also gives the card a little more strength, as the patternd papers are quite thin.

The sentiments, from the Christmas to Remember stamp set are stamped in Mint Macaron ink. The presents are fussy cut from the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP!

Sweet Symmetry Criss Cross Card

Today’s project uses In Symmetry stamp set and the coordinating Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  This is called a Criss Cross card, a fancy fold design that is fun and quite easy to put together.

Sweet Symmetry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

Take a piece of the Sweet Symmetry DSP and cut it in half (beware of your pattern). Place in your Trimmer and score at 3-3/4″ and 8-1/4″. Work out which side of the paper you want on the inside or outside and fold as desired. I wanted the brighter pattern on the outside for this one!

Sweet Symmetry card

Now place some Multipurpose Glue along the bottom sides and up the sides to the cut edge. Fold these over to seal your envelope.

Some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon is wrapped around and tied in a bow at the front.

The Tasteful Labels dies were used to cut a piece of the DSP for the matt layer behind the sentiment. The Label Me Lovely Punch was used to cut some Basic White card.  I placed the punched piece back in the punch but with the straight sides now at the fancy end, so I got the fancy border all the way around!

Sweet Symmetry card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021 close up

The Basic White insert measures 4″ x 5-5/8″. All the stamping is done using Bumblebee & Just Jade inks. Some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the stamped flower to embellish.
