Seeing Hearts with the Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! If you haven’t been to our hop before, you’re in for a treat! We have 27 Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from all over the world collaborating to bring you some wonderful Valentines and Love themed projects. Be sure to read through each, leave a comment, and click the Next Button to hop around to everyone’s post, you really don’t want to miss out!

I first saw this adorable Triangle Treat Box from Beth McCullough over at Stamping Mom. They were so adorable, I had to CASE it, and add my own personal touch. The base is exactly the same as hers, except I added an embossing folder to mine. The embellishments on the front are my own design, and I really love how they turned out!

I used these as party favors at my Galentine’s Day card making class at the beginning of February. We made five Valentine’s Day cards, some of which you can see in my previous posts: Tufted Heart of Gold and I Believe in a Thing Called Love.

These really were fun to make, and I couldn’t stop! I think I made about 10 of them. They are addicting! They are also the first 3D project I’ve made in a long time! I’ve been making so many cards lately, it was really nice to get out of the card comfort zone and do something different. Do you prefer 3D projects or cards? Let me know in the comments!

Beth’s directions were super easy to follow, and she gave lots of great tips on how to construct this box. I’ve included what I learned in my video tutorial below. The Meant To Be Bundle really adds a special Valentine’s touch to the embellishments on this treat box. You can save 10% by purchasing the Meant To Be Stamp Set and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies together in the Bundle.

Eastern Palace Mandala Card and Desk Plant

I love the Eastern Palace Bundle! It makes such BEAUTIFUL cards with the mandalas (medallions). I also wanted to share a cute little card buddy I made, a desk plant! I was going for a succulent vibe, but ended up with green flowers. I still love it so much! It’s the perfect accent to use when photographing my projects.

I participated in the Color Inkspiration Challenge 26 from Facebook for this project. It was a tough one, but I think I did pretty well. I really wanted to make a 3D project for this challenge, but couldn’t decide between that and a card, so I made both! Here are the colors from the challenge:

I really enjoyed these projects, and love how the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon weaves in and out from behind the mandala. It adds a lot of sparkle to this muted card. I also used the Gold Vinyl Stickers from the Eastern Palace Suite which add a nice touch.

For my little potted plant, I used a fun technique that I have made time and time again, because paper flowers are fun! Check out my video below to see how the flowers are made. I also wanted to make the pot for my flowers match the card, so I stamped it and adorned it with the same metallic edge ribbon.

Measurements:

Eastern Palace Mandala Card
Tranquil Tide Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Sahara Sand Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Desk Plant

Easy Pillow Box

Hey Kre8tors! Today I have a really FUN video for you! Need a quick little wrapping for a gift? How about a gift-card delivery vessel? This is the PERFECT little Pillow Box that takes one piece of 6 x 6 designer series paper and DOESN’T require a special die cut or machine! Just a piece of paper, some Tear N’ Tape, and a bone folder!

Of course if you’d like to decorate it you may need a few other items, but the basic Pillow Box takes minimal supplies! I decided to add a “gift-card” to mine before tying the ribbon.

Christmas Mug Gift Wrap

I wanted to make something unique to wrap some tiny Christmas gifts this year, so I made this tall mug from some cardstock! I love how it turned out, and the Christmas Around The World designer series paper really kicks this cup up a notch!

Yes, the ribbon I used may be retired, but there’s a great alternate option noted in the video!

Tag me on Instagram or Twitter with YOUR kre8tions!

Stamping Saturday Session 2

Stamping Saturday Session 2 was a blast! I want to thank all of my subscribers that came over to Facebook to participate with me on the live broadcast!

We made an adorable card out of the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set and the wonderful Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape. And the fun treat case was stamped with Thoughtful Branches, which I think may be all depleted and unfortunately no longer available, but I will be confirming that for certain.

I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you!
