Stamper’s Showcase May 2020 Blog Hop Summertime

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I wanted to make a super cheerful and bright card and I think I did a pretty decent job. 😉 I used the Mountain Air Bundle along with the Peaceful Moments stamp set to create this card today. Let’s take a closer look!

We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! This month’s theme is Summertime and when I think of Summer, I think of bright colors, fun times, and being outside! 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!

I absolutely love how these colors play together! They are so bright and cheerful! I wasn’t sure about putting them all together at first, but the Melon Mambo as the focal point on top really lets the Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, and Granny Apple Green play together nicely in the background.

I stamped three trees from the Mountain Air stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I also wanted to use some of that fun Granny Apple Green ribbon, but I just couldn’t decide whether I wanted it on top of or behind the trees. I ended up putting it on top, but what do you think would look better? Leave me a comment and let me know!

I stamped the background with the reverse side of the moon. Technically, this stamp set is considered “reversible” and I wanted a polka dot background, so it worked out great! I also stuck on a couple of sequins for a little more bling. Can you spot the missing sequin? 😂I put down a glue dot, but forgot to stick a sequin to it! Let me know in the comments if you found it!

Check out my YouTube video below showing you step by step how I put this card together. I really hope you enjoyed this card today, and Subscribe to my YouTube channel for lots of great card tutorials!

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:

$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″

Hanging Banners Sketch with Daisy Delight

I love challenges and have been trying so many different ideas in my VIP group. We have been doing sketch challenges which are so much fun because I get to see my VIP’s ideas unfold. There are so many different ideas and possibilities when it comes to sketches. I created the Hanging Banners sketch with the Daisy Delight Bundle, which includes a coordinating punch, in mind. It’s simple, but still so much fun for a quick card. The sentiment can easily be left off this card right up until it’s ready to be gifted, making it a perfect all occasion card. I’m so excited to announce which one of my VIP’s won this challenge, so let’s get to it!

I used the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Daisy Delight suite of products in the annual catalog for this challenge card. I really love how the Gold Glimmer Paper accents the Tranquil Tide colors. I used both Cardstock and the Finely Woven Ribbon on this card. I love how the colors are perfect matches!

The inspiration for this challenge came from a few card designs I saw on Pinterest. I love how simple and fun the banners are hanging from the off-set circle.

The winner of this challenge was one of my downlines, Diane Marra! Her card is so lovely, I absolutely adore the DSP with flecks of gold foil! She changed the alignment to create a portrait card instead of landscape, and I just adore how it turned out!

Whether you are stamping on the circle, or creating a 3D item to pop out, this fun sketch works well for so many different stamp sets! I encourage you to give this sketch a try and share your projects with me! You can post on social media and use #mkre8tionssketchchallenge or tag me with @mkre8tions so that I can see your fun projects!

Measurements:

Very Vanilla Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Very Vanilla for Daisies (x2): Approx. 4″ x 5″
Tranquil Tide Circle: Approx. 3″ x 3″
Delightful Daisy DSP: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Strip: 3/4″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Banners (x2): 3/4″ x 2″

My panda is having so much fun hanging out behind the ferns and leaves in the jungle! I saw a similar card on Pinterest using a different stamp set, and knew I had everything I needed to CASE it with Stampin’ Up! products. I am SO happy with how it turned out! If you can’t get enough of this panda, check out my
Frame Card using the Party Pandas stamp set.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, and Bermuda Bay to color my leaves using the sponging technique. I inked up my stamp in one color, and then sponged the other two colors on the stamp to get the ombre colored effect. This card was so much fun to make!

And this panda from the Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set is just TOO cute hanging out in the jungle scene. The panda holding a balloon from the set was the perfect stamp to use on this jungle card. And the best part is you can earn the Party Pandas stamp set for FREE when you place a qualifying order!

Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop with Lots of Lavender

I am so excited to be part of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop this month! It’s my first month in this hop, and I am surrounded by so many wonderfully talented ladies. This month’s theme was The Sale-A-Bration Continues, with a color challenge! We were challenged to only use colors from this color palette:

I chose to use the set Lots of Lavender, and I added an additional challenge for myself, to make this card masculine! I think it turned out pretty well, what do you think?

I love how the Linen Thread adds a fun accent behind the sentiment. I used Thoughtful Banners for my Happy Father’s Day sentiment, but there are so many great projects you can do with just the Lots of Lavender set!

I also love how the lavender bunch is a 2-Step Stamp, with the main outline and accompanying solid bow, leaves, and stem. I have a special trick for stamping the leaves and stem at the same time that you can see in my video below.

Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post and click the Next button to continue this awesome hop! There are so many wonderful projects to see from the members of the ICS Blog Hop!
