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!)

If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to be your Creative Coach! How can I help you?

If your order is over $150, don’t use a hostess code because you qualify for your own Stampin’ Rewards!
If your order is less than $150, use my current hostess code 72QWMXAZ when you place your order to get a thank you card from me at the beginning of next month! Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.

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!

.6. Shop for your Sale-A-Bration items by clicking the links, selecting your items, and adding them to your bag.

.7. Once you’ve added all your Sale-A-Bration items, don’t forget to redeem those Stampin’ Rewards you racked up! Click on the Learn More link at the top of the page to learn more about how your Stampin’ Rewards work and to see the hostess exclusive stamp sets you can purchase with your Stampin’ Rewards.

.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!

I really loved all the stamps in this stamp set. The fonts are beautiful and all the extra little accent stamps are super fun! I was so inspired to get creative after playing with this set, I went on to make two different alternate cards, which you can see next week during the Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop! For now, check out my video that I filmed live in my Facebook Group, Melissa’s VIP Stamp Lounge.

Supplies Haul & Occasions Samples

Oh boy Kre8tors, you’re in for a real surprise today! Not only do I have a super long chit chat video for you to enjoy, but I’m sharing TWO amazing projects with you using products from the Occasions catalog! I’m so excited about these! Let’s get started!

This card was made using the Floral Romance Suite products on page 11 from the Occasions Catalog. I used almost all the products in this suite, except for two! I started with a piece of Petal Pink from the Floral Romance 12″ x 12″ Cardstock Pack, which includes the three colors that coordinate with the Specialty Designer Series Papers.

I love that this cardstock comes in a larger size, perfect for 3D projects such as boxes. I decided to cut my piece down to a standard card base. I then cut a card mat and ran it through the Big Shot Die Cutting and Embossing Machine with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gave this card such a huge pop!

I fussy cut by hand some of the leaf bunches from the vellum sheet in the Floral Romance Specialty DSP pack. I didn’t cut as many as I wanted, because I was making this card during a live Facebook video and wanted to cut down the time. It is still gorgeous with fewer pieces! I also cut out some sprigs of plain vellum using the coordinating Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies.

Curious how to see my live videos and sneak peeks? Simply place an order with me, or join my team! You will then gain exclusive access to my closed VIP Stamp Lounge on Facebook! You can also follow my public business page on Facebook to see updates and other news!

I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Fig and cut it out using this beautiful detailed oval from the coordinating die set. And finally, after gluing it all down, I added the beautiful Floral Romance seal. These seals are great because it adds so much flair and they come on the sheet sticky, ready to go!

Floral Romance Measurements:

Petal Pink Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Petal Pink Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Scrap
Vellum Scrap
Floral Romance Specialty DSP: Decorative Vellum Scraps

Floral Romance Materials:

Big Shot

$110.00


 And now for our SECOND card of this post! We are featuring the Amazing Life Bundle with those INCREDIBLE and AMAZING Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies! You HAVE to see what these babies can do! Be sure to head over and check out my corresponding YouTube video!

This card was super simple, takes very few materials, and was so much fun to put together! I started with one color, Bermuda Bay, and added some Whisper White cardstock. I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to cut out a frame and the center portion. Then I used my Stamparatus to place my images in the coordinating Classic Stampin’ Pad color.

I adhered the outer frame down with our Snail Adhesive and I popped up the center piece with some of our Stampin’ Dimensionals. The last few finishing touches included tying a bit of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the center piece and placing a few Basic Jewel Rhinestones. That’s it! Super simple, really quick, and fun!

Amazing Life Measurements:

Bermuda Bay Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Frame & Center: Start with 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Use Largest, 3rd Largest, and 4th Largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits

Amazing Life Materials:
