Painted Poppies DSP Card & HAUL

Hello Kre8tors! Today I’m sharing my Peaceful Poppies DSP Card that I CASE’d from the Mini Catalog and the HAUL that I unboxed in my exclusive customer and team Facebook Group. Want in? Easy! Just become a customer by placing an order or join my team! Now, onto this beautiful and simple card!

The Peaceful Poppies Suite of products is full of amazing colors, images, and embellishments! The card I made for my customers and team members during my Facebook Live video used this gorgeous piece of designer series paper. It made making this card super easy! I just stamped the sentiment, cut it out with the coordinating die cut label, added some color to the pre-cut vellum shapes and glued them on. I also decided to add on some of the adorable gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins. It added a nice touch, I think.

The Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon adds a nice whimsical element behind the sentiment. It’s a lovely ribbon and I can think of a bunch of ways I want to use it in other projects! I’m so excited to get crafting with these materials!

Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate your projects with matching papers and inks. They list each color that is used in the suite so all you need to do is pick the color from the suite you like the best and you know it will coordinate beautifully on your project! I chose the Rich Razzleberry card base, as well as colored in the “happiness” with the Stampin’ Write Marker in the same color. I used my Classic Stampin’ Pad in Poppy Parade for the other parts of the sentiment.

Be sure you check my YouTube video below to see how this card came together, and to see my unboxing of some other great Mini Catalog products and Sale-A-Bration items!

Christmas Gift Tags Day 4

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 4 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed the previous three days, make sure you pop over to the posts for Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 to check them out! Now on to the next tag; my personal favorite! Plus there’s some bonus content, a Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration unboxing! Check out my YouTube video at the end of this post to see all of the amazing products I received.

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

I’m a huge fan of the red buffalo check that I’ve been seeing all over social media and in the stores this Christmas season. It just speaks to me! So I of course had to make a Christmas Gift Tag that coordinated with my decor so it would look extra beautiful under my tree. Thank goodness for Stampin’ Up!’s Buffalo Check background stamp! Now I can make it in any color I want!

I paired this background stamp with the very popular Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating dies, In The Woods. I stamped the large tree and sentiment onto Crumb Cake card stock using the Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad. I really love the look of gray on this card stock, it just gives it a more rustic feel.

After stamping my images, I cut out the tree using the In The Woods Dies and I cut out the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. There are so many different sizes in that die set, it’s perfect for a variety of projects! It just so happened to cut out this sentiment perfectly. Again, as with a lot of my other tags from this week, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to act as my anchor for attaching my ribbon and twine. I really love how it pokes out from the top of the tag.

I really wanted to make this tag super sturdy, so I made sure it had plenty of layers on it. The best part about using lots of layers and dimension on a tag is that you don’t have to mail it! You can build it up as much as you want and it will look stunning on your packages! All of my packages are wrapped in this beautiful lined craft paper, so these tags coordinate beautifully.

These tags were designed to last a long time, so whether you snag that tag back after the recipient has opened their gift, or let them re-use it in their wrapping next year, these tags should hold up really well! And here’s a peek at my inspiration for this tag. I found this adorable basket and wool blanket at Marshalls. The sign came from Wal-Mart, and the flowers were left over from a craft shopping trip to Hobby Lobby where I picked up the materials to make the wreath for my door.

Measurements:

Real Red Cardstock: 2-7/8″ x 3-7/8″
Basic Gray Cardstock: 3″ x 4″ & 2″ x 3″
Very Vanilla Cardstock: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
Crumb Cake Cardstock: Scraps for tree and sentiment

Materials:

Stamparatus

$49.00

Paper Snips

$10.00

Noble Peacock Suite Bundle

Hello Kre8tors! If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re a returning reader, thanks for coming back! Today we are playing with the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle! I’ve CASE’d the Annual Catalog and have filmed a tutorial on how I created this beautiful card. I can’t wait to tell you all about it! Come and have a look!

There are so many different ways to get your goodies. First, you can buy all of the items in the bundle individually, or just pick and choose your favorites. Second, you can purchase just the stamps and dies together in a bundle and save 10%. And the last, and best in my opinion, option is the Suite Bundle! That includes ALL of the amazing products in the suite, PLUS you still save that 10% off the stamps and dies. It’s a GREAT deal if you love all the items in a full product suite. Check out the Materials section for all of the different choices!

The Beads and Baubles Embossing Folder is gorgeous with amazing texture! I’ve used the indented side of the embossing folder on the front of my card base and just love how it turned out!

The Reversible Ribbon makes a beautiful accent behind my Stitched Shape oval alongside the sentiment and adorable daisies from the stamp set. And can we talk about the Peacock Tail? That die cut is so detailed and beautiful!

Measurements:

Blackberry Bliss Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Inner Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Outer Mat: 3″ x 4-1/4″
Vellum: 3″ x 4-1/4″
Scrap White: Approx. 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Materials:

(The first image below is the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle that includes all of the products shown on page 25 of the Annual Catalog. After the sponge daubers, I have included the Royal Peacock Bundle which is just the stamps and dies, and then after that I broke out each item in the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle so you can see everything you get!)

Calligraphy Essentials and MASSIVE Sale-A-Bration Haul with Pam!

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to announce we had a special guest Kre8tor on today’s video! My good friend and fellow crafter, Pam, shared her amazing HUGE haul with us. She took FULL advantage of the Sale-A-Bration promotion by purchasing her one year Paper Pumpkin Subscription, adding a few more items to her order, and raking in the Stampin’ Rewards to earn a TON of free stuff! Be sure to watch the video below to see all of her amazing goodies, as well as her project using the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to watch her video!

You too can earn lots of amazing goodies by pairing your Paper Pumpkin pre-paid subscription with the Sale-A-Bration promotion before it ends on March 31st! Here’s how you can do it:

.1. Head over to my online store and click on the Paper Pumpkin link on the left.

.2. Click on the Prepaid Subscriptions link.

.3. Click the subscription you’d like, and add it to your bag.

.4. Depending on the subscription you choose, you might want to add a little more to trigger the Stampin’ Rewards like Pam did. If that’s the case, keep shopping until you hit $250, then click Checkout.

.5. You’ll be notified how many Sale-A-Bration rewards you’ve earned. Click confirm, and then click on the link to claim your items!

.8. If you are purchasing a hostess exclusive set, simply click Claim Rewards to add it to your cart.

.9. When adding other items, instead of clicking Add To Bag, make sure you click Claim Rewards to use your Stampin’ Rewards. Make sure you use them all up! You can go over a little bit if you find something you can’t live without and you only have a small amount in Stampin’ Rewards left. You can pay the difference.

.10. When you’re ready, simply click Check Out and finish your order.

That’s it! Now all that’s left is to head over to the Paper Pumpkin website, sign up (if you don’t already have an account) and enter in the subscription code that was sent to your email address after you checked out. And of course wait for all your amazing goodies to arrive!
