Kre8tors Autumn Color Challenge

Hello, Kre8tors! I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions. Welcome back to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating Autumn with a color challenge! I’ve provided our hop participants with the following color palette to create their projects. I think they’ve all done an amazing job, what do you think? If you’d like to create your own project using this color scheme, upload a picture of your finished project to social media and tag me on your post so that I can see your wonderful creation and share it with my followers! See the Social Media buttons at the bottom of this post to find out where you can share!

So, our color challenge theme is Autumn, and the photo above is the inspiration for our color palette. I challenged our lovely demonstrators with using at least 3 out of 5 of the colors above, and in addition to those, they are allowed to use black, white, and vanilla. Here’s what I came up with!

As I was perusing Pinterest, I came across a photo that had a beautiful dark background with colorful leaves all over. I clicked on the photo to find out more, however there was no link to follow. The only information that was on the pin said Patsy Collins and Josephs Coat Technique. She did a great job using the photo to show step by step how this technique works. I wanted to recreate her technique using the beautiful Rooted in Nature stamp set. I am in LOVE with how it turned out!

The colors I chose to use are Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Granny Apple Green. We were allowed to use Black and Whisper White as well. I think these colors are so beautiful together! They remind me of Autumn and rainbow sherbet ice cream! Yum!

Check out my video tutorial to learn how to make this fun and colorful background using the Joseph’s Coat Technique! Don’t forget to hop around to all of the very talented demonstrators that are part of our wonderful Kre8tors Blog Hop! They’ve all worked very hard on these projects!

Something Spooky This Way Comes

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! This month we are popping up because there is something spectacularly spooky here! The September ’18 Kit, Frights & Delights! This special edition kit is perfect for the Halloween season! It came with three adorable little goodie bags and tags that allowed us a vessel to fill yummy treats and pass around.

Check out my previous post and coordinating YouTube video for when I made these adorable bundles of sweet goodness!

The little bags were way too adorable, and I wanted to save as much of the materials as I could to make them all! But that didn’t stop me from making two fabulous alternate CARDS to share with you today! Two different styles, one is more “vintage-antique-shabby-chic” and the other is “bright-and-fun”! Which style is your favorite?

Don’t forget to check out my tutorial video below to see how these cards came together. Click on the NEXT button to hop over to Candy’s blog where she is going to show you her delicious project!

Fall Inspiration

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are a group of international Stampin’ Up!®️Demonstrators who love paper crafting and sharing. Today’s theme is Fall For All! I’m so excited for this hop because Autumn is my favorite time of year. The air gets crisper, the days get shorter, and it’s the best time to get cozy and snug with mugs of coffee and lit candles! It’s the absolute best!

My project today features two amazing products from the Holiday Catalog. The Winter Woods Bundle and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. These two products are my absolute favorites from this catalog and I am so pleased with how this Fall inspired card turned out.

I’m also using a fun technique that I first saw from fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett, on her YouTube channel. She uses several layers of ink on a stamp to create beautiful, variegated images using the Stamparatus. I thought that technique was so fun, I really had to try it myself and thought this Autumn Card would be the perfect opportunity to bring in some of those gorgeous Fall colors!

There are so many fantastic products in this hop! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this page and click the Next button to hop on over to Candy’s blog to see her adorable project using the Trick or Tweet stamp set!

Measurements:

Fresh Fig Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″
Fresh Fig Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Gold Foil: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Scrap: 4″ x 5″

Rooted in Nature Crate Container

Welcome to the Ink & Share Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping with so many talented
Stampin’ Up!®️ Demonstrators from around the globe! Today’s hop is featuring anything but cards. So what does that mean? Well, it could be boxes, scrapbook layouts, place cards for table settings, just about any paper craft that isn’t a card! I love this theme and am excited to share my project with you!

Don’t forget to click that Next button at the bottom of this post to hop around to all of the talented demonstrators participating this month!

I can’t get over how ADORABLE this Crate Box is! I was scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration on the Rooted in Nature Bundle and stumbled across Nadine’s Stampin Club. She posted this gorgeous box, and I believe it was inspired by Sabine’s Kreativecke. Thank you ladies, for your amazing talent and for sharing this wonderful project with the world!

So, in my video, I highly encouraged viewers to come to this blog post so that they could see the list of measurements. I think it’s a lot easier to cut paper for a project when it’s all in one, neat list. So, below are the measurements and the materials I’ve used on this project today. Don’t forget to scroll all the way down to check out the video tutorial and then hop around to all of the other wonderful demonstrators on this blog hop by clicking on the Next button!

Wrap – Old Olive 3-3/8″ x 9-3/4″ (length is approximate if you score as I did in the video)
The first two score lines on the wrap are 1-3/4″ & 3-1/2″

Kre8tors Blog Hop Sympathy Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to my blog. Today is a special edition because it’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the globe get together to inspire you with beautiful projects! This month’s theme is Sympathy. I have experienced quite a few losses in the month of September, so I thought I would honor those people in my own way, by using my creativity to inspire and share with others.

For my Sympathy card, I decided to use Flourishing Phrases, a classic in the Annual Catalog. It is such a versatile set and so beautiful for a card like this. I wanted to use Gray Granite and Mint Macaron, and think this combination is beautiful with this stamp set.

I love using our Whisper White ribbons and baker’s twine because I can dye it any color I need with our ink! I used that technique on this card to match my ribbon with the Mint Macaron. I also used some of the gorgeous basic adhesive backed sequins to add a little bling. Check out my video tutorial below, and don’t forget to hop along to the other demonstrator’s blogs and see their beautiful, heartfelt projects.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Scrap of cardstock for circle template
