Petal Palette Birthday!

Hello Kre8tors, I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions and welcome to another Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m really excited about this one because it’s my birthday! How fun that my birthday falls on hop day! To celebrate, our theme is birthdays! So take a moment to enjoy your favorite beverage and hop around to all of the talented demonstrators from around the globe participating in today’s hop!

My card today features my favorite stamp set, Petal Palette! I’ve also thrown in the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits dies, and the new Buffalo Check background stamp. I used the Round Robin technique on my Stamparatus to stamp my circle (or square) of flowers. Love this technique! It’s just another great way to use this amazing stamping tool!

I used Mint Macaron for my card base and the ink on the buffalo check background and Blackberry Bliss as my card mat and ink on my focal image and sentiment. I love this layout design, as it is perfect to use with nearly any stamp set!

When using the Stamparatus to do the round robin technique, you can get very different results depending on the size of your stamp, and where you place it in your template. You can see in the first photo it looks slightly more rounded, and in the second photo it is more square and more spread out. See my video below to find out how I created my focal image on the Stamparatus!

I hope you enjoyed my project and video tutorial today! Please be sure to click the next button below to hop on over Rebecca-Jo’s talented blog to see her fun birthday project!

Birthday Card with Rooted in Nature

Welcome back Kre8tors! I recently found myself needing a birthday card for my grandmother and knew right away I was going to choose Rooted in Nature. This set definitely embodies her spirit with the trees and leaves. Green is a color she’s always been drawn to, so I knew I had to use Shaded Spruce.

I had so much fun CASE’ing this card from Angelique over at Stempelkeuken. She did a lovely job, and when I saw this card I knew it had to be a birthday card for my grandmother! Check out the video tutorial I posted below to see how it all came together!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/4″ + Scrap for Leaf Punch
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″

Ink & Share Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Good morning, Kre8tors! Welcome to this month’s Ink & Share Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share with you an awesome sneak peek from the brand new Annual Catalog that will be available to customers on June 1st!

Without further ado, I introduce to you the beautiful 2018-2020 In Colors!

Blueberry Bushel

Call Me Clover

Pineapple Punch

Grapefruit Grove

Lovely Lipstick

I’ve used three of these five brand new colors on the project I’m sharing with you today! I wanted to make a birthday card for a sweet little 8 year old and saw the perfect opportunity to let these colors shine using Swirly Bird!

I took the paint splatter stamp from Swirly Bird and used Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, and Lovely Lipstick to create a fun background on Whisper White cardstock. I cut out a few swirls out of Basic Black cardstock from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies to create the number 8.

I also took some of our Whisper White Baker’s twine, and dyed it with the Lovely Lipstick ink pad to put behind the celebrate sentiment from Thoughtful Banners. I think all the loops and swirls coordinate perfectly with this theme!

Thanks so much for hopping on over here today! I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoyed seeing it! Don’t forget to hop on over to the other talented demonstrators by clicking on the next button below or using the Roll Call List to help guide you.

Next up is the oh so lovely, Lisa Kmiec! Her creation is just fantastic and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Rose Gold Happy Birthday Card – NO STAMPING

I am ALL about that Rose Gold, baby! I love it! My computer, my phone case, my tablet, my accessory pouch, even my highlighter… if something comes in Rose Gold, I’m all about that! So, I made my take on a Rose Gold Birthday Card using our Happy Birthday Thinlits Die, some gold foil, and Powder Pink cardstock.

One of the great things about this card, NO STAMPING! That’s right, there are absolutely no stamps on this card whatsoever. There’s only big shot die cuts and some adhesive, that’s it! Such a fun card to put together. This would look beautiful in ANY color! I’ve used this Happy Birthday Thinlit Die so many times and love it on all my projects, especially on my Daisy Delight Double-Z Fold Card. There are so many great uses for this beautifully lettered die cut!

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″

Materials:
