Whimsy & Wonder has been my favourite

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 28 – Mint Macaron

I just adore this gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper with it’s shiny accents and I have used it in different ways on this card. A strip matted on some Polished Pink cardstock down the centre then a die cut piece behind the sentiment. Both of these are cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The presents are cut from the patterned paper too!

The word Joy was stamped multiple times and I just eyeballed it. You could probably use the Stamparatus to line them up properly if you wanted to.

Here are a few more designs using this same suite of products; the first few are the same design with various patterned papers from the same pack. Very easy for making multiples of and just add different embellisments.

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.

Eden's Garden Collection Handmade Christmas SITR card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

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.

Christmas Arrange a Wreath on a fancy brick wall

First I want to make sure you are aware of the Merry & Bright Online Extravaganza tomorrow – for 1 day only on 24th November – save 10% off most of the Annual catalogue products. Click here to view the PDF of all the details of what is on sale, including bundles where you are already saving 10%!

The Arrange a Wreath Bundle is such a wonderful product and you can create so much with it. Today, I have a Christmas Wreath on a fancy brick wall, a background of the In Good Taste DSP.

The Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Wreath are such gorgeous colours together and the Real Red flowers just pop!

The sentiment is stamped on a die cut from the Tasteful Labels dies. It was a bit too big, so I moved the die and cut again to make it shorter! I love how we can do this to make our sentiments fit perfectly.

The little So Saffron pearl embellishments are a retired product, but they were the perfect colour for my project. You could also colour the plain Basic Pearls with an alcohol Blends Marker to colour it any tone you like!

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight & Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Bright Magenta Birthday

Tonight I am featuring this stunning Designer Paper, Flowers for Every Season with the NEW in Color, Magenta Madness. Oh my, the bright and cheery colours here make my heart so happy!!!!

Magenta Madness Feminine Handmade card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

The Well Written dies were cut multiple times and glued together to add some depth and so they pop up from the card a little. Those butterflies are die cut in Brass Foil and add a gorgeous shine. The centres of the flowers have the Bumblebee coloured Enamel Dots!

Behind the die cut images, you can see the whisper white layer, but can you also see the vellum layer behind it? I felt it was needed so the sentiment didn’t get too lost on that amazing designer paper.

For my card tonight, I am using the lovely new In Color, Just Jade along with a couple of other colours from the patterned paper I have selected.

Favourite Stampin Up AC 2020-21 products Craft with Kate

I started with a white square card base and layered some Just Jade card & patterned paper before stamping on the white card using the Stamp in the Round (SITR) technique.

The centre circle features can be cut from the centre of the two larger layers before gluing them down to the base card to get the most out of your products. The sentiment can also be stamped on the larger Jade card and fussy cut. This was stamped in Versamark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set before fussy cutting. This circle feature in the centre is popped up on dimensionals and a couple of 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots scatted across the card to finish it off.

Smile for Lovely You

This Lovely You Bundle was also added to my shopping cart as soon as I was able to order it during our demonstrator pre-order period. I just love the smaller floral images, especially because they are perfect for creating the Stamp in the Round style of card (SITR).

By creating a template to use in your Stamparatus, you can stamp an image, rotate the cardstock 90o and stamp again. Continue this process and you end up with a stunning design all in perfect position.

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.

World of Good SDSP

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?

A Good Man masculine card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020 s

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.
