Art with Heart Team Creative Showcase - Sketch



Welcome to the Monthly 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 to the right.  The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways the the Art with Heart team.

I have chosen to use some of my lovely Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to create a very quick and easy card.  I have used a piece Best Dressed Designer Series Paper as my background as it went so well and then teamed it with a couple of different size banners and then punched out starburst in Whisper White and then added the large magnolia which I had carefully fussy cut out.

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

CASEing the Catty - #CTC270 Flourish Dies




This week we are CASEing the Catty is the first week of CASEing your favourite retiring punch or die.  I have chosen to feature the Flourish Dies which have been a go to set with the matching Flourishing Phrases stamp set (unfortunately the stamp set has already sold out).

You maybe starting the blog hop here, so welcome or you may be coming from the very talented Lauren Meiklejohn.

I have made the decorated box pictured on the left into a card using the beautiful Old Olive and Whisper White Designer Series Paper from the retiring Magnolia Lane Suite as my background.

I have layered lots of die cut flourishes in the Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White with the leaves cut using the Leaf punch (which is also retiring and I will miss a lot).  I have finished it off with a flourish in Soft Sea Foam and some trim, sequins and the white embossed sentiment.

CASEing the Catty - #CTC267 Ornate Garden




I am loving the staying at home in isolation for crafting but luckily I am still working Monday to Thursday otherwise I think I would really miss my friends and catch ups for coffee and cake.

You maybe starting the blog hop here, so welcome or you may have come from Sandra Collett.

This week is the second week of being inspired by the flowers of the Ornate Garden Suite.  I have chosen to use the two cards on the left for my inspiration.

I have decided it's time to cut up my designer series paper from the Annual Catalogue and Mini Catalogue and create with them before they all retire with the new Catalogue which will be unveiled to Stampin' Up! demonstrators this week!  It's not too late to join my team and see it first on Friday morning.

My cards both feature the Parisian Blossom Speciality Designer Series Paper, I hope you can see the champagne foil in the close up photographs of the cards, as it's just so beautiful.  I have teamed this up with the Ornate Layers Dies and sentiment from Peaceful Moments and some Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue (it is just so easy to make bows with).

Stamp Set:  Peaceful Moments
Cardstock:  Pool Party, Petal Pink, Whisper White, Parisian Blossom Speciality Designer Series Paper

In Colour 2018-2020 Retiring List Coming Soon



Wow, 2020 is flying by even with all the self isolating, but what better time to spend crafting in our homes and getting our products safely delivered to our homes by the very busy Australia Post workers.

Don't forget that the retirement list from the Annual Catalogue will be released on 24 April and all the In Colour 2018-2020 items will be discontinuing ready for the new colours to be released with the new Annual Catalogue.

A must have is the reinkers for your ink pads, as they disappear very fast once the retirement list is announced and you really don't what to miss out.

ORDER ONLINE  during April with Host Code SJDC3RNX for a special gift from me.

Art with Heart Team Creative Showcase - Mother's Day


Welcome to the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team Monthly Creative Showcase.  The theme for this month's showcase is Mother's Day.  Under the current conditions Mother's Day this year is going to be completely different to any other Mother's Day celebrations.


I have been doing some fussy cutting during the isolation time and I love these beautiful birds from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I have mounded a piece of the bird cages from the Designer Series Paper and then featured the two birds with a sentiment embossed in white on a strip of Basic Black cardstock for a stand out feature.

The Art with Heart Team are hoping to share a little Mother's Day love and inspiration with you tonight.

Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper

CASEing the Catty - #CTC266 Create an Easter Card with the Sketch




We are into the Easter Week and it's the second week of Creating an Easter Card with the sketch below.

You maybe starting the blog here, so welcome or you may have come from Monique Fielder.

As we are in different circumstances with the Covid-19 and social distancing our church services have been live streamed via Facebook and whilst watching this morning, this card was being designed in my head and it just came together with ease.  The shades of purple were influenced by the paraments in church which are in lent and the lead up to Easter.

I have used a die from the recently released Ornate bundle as my background to some foliage stamped in shades of purple with the cross being my centrepiece in front of the tomb with the beautiful sentiment of "GOD IS LOVE".

I wish you all a happy and safe Easter week, the world is definitely in termoil, but share some love and #sharesunshine to others in your community and all over the world.

Why not send a card to show that you are thinking of your friends and family even though you are not seeing them in person you are giving them a hug of love in their hand.

Stamp Set:  Hold on to Hope
Cardstock:  Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
Accessories:  Ornate Layers Dies, Tulip Builder Punch
