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!

Passion for Punches ICS Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to another fun project! Today we are hopping with the ICS Blog Hop, a group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe. This month’s theme is Passion for Punches, so I decided to make a beautiful Fall Wreath card using the Leaf Punch that coordinates with the stamp set, Painted Harvest.

I have been ready for fall since Spring started! I am definitely a Fall baby, and love everything about the season. I’m so excited for the smell of the Bath & Body Works candle, Leaves. I’m excited for Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING! I’m excited about the cool days when the sun is still shining, otherwise known as sweater weather. So, to reflect my amazing mood right now, I wanted to share some bright, vibrant Fall colors on this gorgeous Fall Wreath card.

The sentiment I used was from Rooted in Nature and I love every, little, thing about this set! First of all, it comes in a BUNDLE with the stamp set AND the framelits, so you can save 10%!!! Second, this stamp set has not one, but TWO cases full of beautiful, nature inspired stamps. I really love it when a stamp set has both beautiful images as well as coordinating sentiments and sayings.

I also am so in love with a stamp set that coordinates beautifully with OTHER sets! Rooted in Nature pairs really well with Painted Harvest, the set I used when creating the focal point of my card. Combining old classics with new favorites is a huge benefit! If you want to see how I put this beautiful wreath together using the “paper gasket” method, click on the video link below!
