Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Fancy Folds

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today and we have some very fun folds to share with you! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

For my project today, I’ve decided to make a Half Easel Card. What I love so much about this fancy fold is that you have the large canvas of the inside card mat to play with, as well as a pop-up element to make the card a bit more… fancy!

I went with the Rooted in Nature stamp set because it had a large and interesting sentiment I could place on the right hand side of the inner mat, as well as an elongated image that is perfect for the narrow easel on the left.

Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake are the perfect colors for this card! It can be both masculine and feminine, and there are so many design changes that could be made. This will work with a variety of different stamp sets. Use your imagination and show me what you come up with! Tag me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook! @MKre8tions

Here’s my video tutorial to demonstrate how this card is made. Be sure to visit my YouTube channel and click that SUBSCRIBE button! It helps me to continue making videos for you to enjoy!

July Kre8tors Blog Hop Floral

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the July Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month our theme is Floral. I decided to showcase the Bloom and Grow Bundle to demonstrate my version of the “reflection” technique using Vellum paper. I really love how this turned out, and it was so fun to create! Check out my video tutorial on my YouTube channel and be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration!

I really love how soft the reflection portion of this card turned out. I used my Stampin’ Blends to create a vibrant top and a subtle bottom using the Dark and Light Stampin’ Blends in each color.

The stamping process was fun, but I do recommend stamping the floral pattern on your vellum and WALKING AWAY for a good while to allow the ink time to dry. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a smeary mess, which is not fun! Because I colored this with our Stampin’ Blends which are alcohol based markers, I used the water based black ink Memento stamp pad.

Once I had everything stamped and colored, I did a little background stamping with a “second generation” Smoky Slate and started adhering my pieces. I finished it off with some lovely Rhinestones and this card was done! Every time I look at this font I get chills, I just love it so! Be sure to check out my video tutorial below and click that next button to hop along to all of our other amazing floral projects!

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

July ICS Blog Hop Punch Me Out

Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop! Today we are sharing projects using punches, so I’ve decided to use a few classics from the Annual Catalog. CIRCLES! I’ve used three different circle punches on today’s card and I really love how it turned out!

It’s very similar to the Tunnel Card I made earlier, however on a much smaller scale with not quite as much dimension. Some people call this a porthole as well, like the windows on a ship. What would you call it? Let me know in the comments below!

I really love how soft the Champagne Foil is on this card. It is a beautiful color! It’s very soft, and elegant I think. Silver and Gold are beautiful and have their place, but there’s just something about this Champagne that says “I’m here and I brought the Bubbly, er, MYSELF!”

I accented the 1/2″ Champagne circles with two of the dies from the Detailed Peacocks Dies. I love these little branch dudes. They are so pretty! And I especially love the Champagne foil paired with the Basic Gray. It really makes a lovely combination.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Basic Gray Mat: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
Whisper White Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scraps

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!)

Bloom and Grow Simple Thank You Cards

Hello Kre8tors! If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re a returning reader, thanks for coming back! Can we just talk about the Bloom & Grow stamp set for just a sec…. It’s AMAZING! This is the first project I’ve made with it, but I am absolutely in LOVe and have big plans now!

I needed some quick and beautiful thank you cards, and this set made the PERFECT cards! Add a couple simple embellishments, and BOOM, beautiful cards in minutes!

I started with a basic Whisper White card base, and layered a 2-1/2″ square on top. I used the thank you sentiment from the Bloom and Grow stamp set, and added a few of the smaller leaves and twig stamps.

I colored those in with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Duo (light and dark) and then added some Poppy Parade to the little berries. I also used the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend in Dark to color in the Epoxy Hearts. It works BEAUTIFULLY! If you haven’t tried it yet, I suggest you do!

I also added some of our Burlap Ribbon behind the layered square for a little extra OOMPH. I have a little trick for getting the MOST MILEAGE out of your ribbon. Check it out in my video below!

Measurements:

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