Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 1 and Kre8tors Blog Hop Mini Catalog

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration! Now, onto a very beautiful and special project using the Honey Bee Bundle and some GORGEOUS Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!

I CASE’d this project from page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. I have already CASE’d one of them in a previous post, and will be CASE-ing the other in an upcoming post. I wanted to share this card with you because it uses some of the amazing gold foil papers from the Golden Honey Speciality DSP. When I first saw this paper, I knew I HAD to have it! There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it! And you bet I will be spending additional SAB rewards I earn on MORE!

This was a simple card to make, but it offers SO much! The stunning black background with the pops of Coastal Cabana… the delicate gold foil bee under the simple and small ‘Hello’ sentiment… the subtle hint of Coastal Cabana in the honeycomb under the gold bee… this card is packed full of beautiful details!

The best part about this paper? It’s absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase! Just $50 in product will earn you a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. So that means if you purchased the Honey Bee Bundle, that gorgeous Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you can get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! Ask your demonstrator for details, or if you don’t have a demonstrator or are new to Stampin’ Up! go ahead and send me a message! I’d love to help you out!

The best part about CASE-ing the catalogs and flyers is that on some pages, Stampin’ Up! tells you exactly what you need to create these projects. On page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer, they give you a list of products you will need to create three beautiful projects. I followed that list to create this card, however I wasn’t able to get my hands on the beautiful Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon when I made this card, so I substituted for the Metallic Baker’s Twine that came in the Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack, which is also a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Check out my video tutorial below to find out how this beautiful card came together. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great tutorials!

I loved it so much, I had to CASE it! At first glance, I wasn’t sure how she made the background on the inside of the card, but then it hit me! It’s just some designer series paper… COLORED IN! The actual paper has a white background, but with the help of a few sponge daubers, et voila! You can customize it to your color palette!

Welcome to Sale-A-Bration!

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to 2020 and to Sale-A-Bration! This is such an amazing time of year, because you get FREE products for shopping, hosting, or joining Stampin’ Up! I wanted to get our brand new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Flyer launched with a fun project using the Honey Bee Bundle.

This bundle is perfect for a variety of cards, and coordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I am CASEing the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Flyer, and creating three projects for you that use this set along with that FREE paper! So be sure you follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and find me on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

This card was a lot of fun to make. I tweaked it slightly to make it a standard size card instead of the square size that was shown in the SAB Flyer. It turned out beautiful, though I did have a hard time chopping up that gorgeous gold foil specialty designer series paper. But that’s what it’s for, right?!

I substituted a FREE SAB product, the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins, for the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon as I don’t have any of that beautiful stuff quite yet… but 3 spools are on their way to me! If you were to purchase the Honey Bee Bundle, one spool of that Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you would qualify to get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! For more details, visit my online store.

There are also amazing perks for hosting a party (virtual) or joining my team. I would love to talk to you about the benefits of each option, and what extra goodies you get during SAB!

For now, let’s take a peek at what you need to make this awesome card! Check out my video tutorial below, and please let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

Happy New Year and let’s Sale-A-Brate!

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″

Honey Bee Bundle Shaker Card

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome to 2020! I’m so excited to get this year started off with some crafty inspiration for you! Today I’m using the Honey Bee Bundle from the new Mini Catalog, which will be live for customers on January 3rd, along with Sale-A-Bration! What is Sale-A-Bration, you might be asking if you are new to Stampin’ Up!? It’s a wonderful time of year where you get FREE items for shopping!

Before we dive too far into Sale-A-Bration, let’s take a look at this amazing Shaker Card using the Honey Bee Bundle from the Mini Catalog. I cut out the honeycomb using the die from the Detailed Bee Dies, and inlayed it onto the same cutout from a piece of Whisper White cardstock. There is a piece of Window Sheet behind the honeycomb die cut, that acts as the window to our shaker card.

I used the sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack which is a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can start earning Sale-A-Bration items on January 3rd if you’re a customer, or go ahead and pre-earn NOW if you’re a demonstrator. Head over to my online store for more details! Or join my team to get your hands on these products ASAP!

I absolutely am in love with these bees! I’m normally not a bee person, but these bees are the perfect blend of not too cutesy with not too realistic. The shading on the wings is incredible, and they are so easy to color and cut!

The other stamps and die cuts in this bundle are perfect to create a plethora of projects! I’ll be coming out with MANY more, so be sure to follow my blog and subscribe to my YouTube channel!

This shaker card was inspired by Sandra Budde, a fellow Demonstrator, from Germany. She created a tutorial in German, but I absolutely had to make this card for myself, so I went ahead and made a video tutorial to share with you.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Scraps for Bees
Window Sheet: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Shaker Card Background: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Daffodil Delight Scrap for Honeycomb: Approx. 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Basic Black Scraps for Sentiments

Sea of Textures Birthday Card

Hello Kre8tors and welcome! Today I’m sharing the birthday card that I made for my niece, who just turned 2! I wanted to make a special card for her that matched the wrapping on her gift. The colors I chose were Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, and Basic Gray. I love these neutrals together and think they made a beautiful card.

I CASE’d this card from the lovely Stamp It Up With Jaimie. You can see her original card by clicking here. I did change a few things such as the colors, but stuck mostly with the same overall design. I really loved the simplicity of the card, and the clean look it has.

I had to add a little sparkly shimmer so I used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and painted the octopus to make him shine. I also threw in a few of the Basic Jewels Rhinestones for a little more sparkle. I really enjoyed how this card turned out! What do you think?

Measurements:

Basic Gray Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Night of Navy Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ (+scrap)
Whisper White Inner Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Materials:
