Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop – Be Mine

Hey Kre8tors! Welcome back for a fun blog hop! The Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are featuring alternate projects for the January 2019 kit, Be Mine Valentine! This was a super cute and awesome box that coordinated with the Animal Expedition Suite from the Annual Catalog.

I really liked this kit because it let us put together Pillow Boxes that we can fill with treats! 3D projects are so much fun, especially when Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy with this monthly subscription box!

When I create alternate projects from my Paper Pumpkin kits, I really like to try and use only the supplies in the kit. I was able to do that with this kit and I really like how it turned out. There are so many ways to use the contents of this kit, so be sure to hop around to all of the awesome ideas from my fellow demonstrators who are in this hop! Click the next button below!

Spring is in the Air with Ink Stamp Share

Welcome back to the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop! January’s theme is our beautiful Spring/Summer Catalog that just launched. It’s called the Occasions Catalog and is full of amazing and beautiful things! One of my favorite bundles is the Meant to Be Bundle featured right at the beginning of the catalog.

I gained my inspiration for this card from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Cindi Clarke. I stumbled across her Pinterest pin and fell in love. I did quite a few tweaks to really make this card my own, and added the pink striped heart, side flourish, and removed the mat layer she used. I also chose to use our Gold Foil.

One of my absolute favorite features on this card has to be the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gives a beautiful quilted look to your project. The Gold Foil really takes well to this embossing folder and holds the shape beautifully. I rounded my heart slightly to make it look a little “poofier”. Take a look at my video below to see how it’s done!

This is one of the cards I am offering my Galentine’s Day participants. We are making 5 Valentine Cards with envelopes. I’m really excited to show my students this fun project! Stay tuned for my other videos in the series by subscribing to my YouTube channel!

January KBH Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world getting together to bring you some beautiful handcrafted projects. Today we have a challenge to follow! The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, also known as Noughts & Crosses.

I’m also opening this challenge up to YOU! That’s right, just create your project using three of the items in a row, column, or diagonal line from the graphic above and post your creation on social media using the hashtag #kre8torstictactoejanuary and I will pick someone to be featured in the next Kre8tors Blog Hop post. Submit your projects using this hashtag on social media by Sunday, February 3rd!

We were tasked with using products from the brand new 2019 Occasions Catalog or Sale A Bration Brochure. If you’d like to see this catalog and flyer, ask your demonstrator for copies. If I’m your demonstrator, or you don’t yet have one, click on my Catalogs link to check out the electronic copies.

I decided to use the Meant To Be Bundle which includes the all new Cling mount stamps along with the coordinating Framelits Dies. I absolutely love the stitching around several of these die cut pieces and can’t wait to show off my Galentine’s Day project samples for you! Coming soon!

I decided to complete a diagonal line on our Tic Tac Toe Challenge graphic, using Sequins, a Punch, and Ribbon on my card today. The colors I featured are Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron. these two colors compliment each other so well, and I really love how the Grapefruit Grove matches the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins I used.

I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out each line on the sentiment to give it a little more interest over the stamped heart. And finally I used our Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake to really tie all of these elements together. I can’t find the original designer for this card, so if it looks familiar to you, leave me a comment and let me know who I can credit for the inspiration!

Check out my Video Tutorial below to see this card come together, and to learn more about Sale A Bration, how it works, and what you can earn! Plus I have a bonus #simplestamping project featuring the Hello Cupcake stamp set I earned for FREE!

December Christmas Inspiration for Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s time to get Komfy, it’s time to get Kozy, it’s time to get Kre8tiv! Welcome back Kre8tors! Today we have a super fun blog hop for you to follow because we are showcasing Christmas Cards! To me, nothing beats a cold, wintery day bundled up inside with some hot coffee, a huge sweater, and craft time! So come hop along with some amazingly talented Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the world and get inspired during our Kre8tors Blog Hop!

I am so in love with these cards, it’s ridiculous! They just seem super cozy to me, and I’m not sure if it’s because it reminds me of a house and Christmas time, or just what it is… Of course I was scouring Pinterest for some inspiration and came across a post from The Paper Collage with a cute little French Door Gatefold Card. I definitely had to CASE it and tweak some aspects to be able to use the materials that I had on hand.

For the red card I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Whisper White Craft Ink for the distressed areas. I used Very Vanilla on the inside and stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobber ink. The greenery on the doors is done with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, and the bow is made out of some Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I added two little silver brads for the door knobs, and YAY! French Doors!

The second card is a little more elegant, with a Whisper White base and metallic accents. You can see how it all came together in my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″ from each end.
Whisper White Panels (2 of each size):
1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
1-1/2″ x 3″
1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″
1-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scrap approximately 2″ x 5″


Materials:
