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!

ISS April Blog Hop Color Challenge

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today! This month’s theme is a color challenge. We’ve been given Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, and So Saffron to play with and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

I’m so excited to share my card 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!

I made my first card using only the four inks and the Music From The Heart stamp set and although I had followed the directions explicitly, I wasn’t sure I was quite happy with the outcome. It’s cute for a quick, #simplestamping card. But as Ariel best put it, “I want more”. Sooo….

I decided to take to Pinterest, where I get so much of my inspiration, and I saw a beautiful Color Blocking Technique pin from Jennifer McGuire. I decided to give it a try and am SO pleased with the results.

There are two techniques on this card: Color Blocking and Emboss-Resist. I used my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool to stamp poppies and leaves all over a card mat. Then I cut the card mat apart, as noted in my template and in the measurements section below.

Then I used sponge daubers to color in each section, blending two colors together. The inks resist against the embossed areas, leaving behind a gorgeous background.

I stamped a small sentiment on the outside between two of the pieces and added some of our Basic Jewels Rhinestones for a bit of bling and shimmer. And Ta-Da! Beautiful card that I think follows the color challenge rules quite well.

Check out my video tutorial below. Please be sure to head to YouTube directly and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already! It helps me out so much and allows me to keep making videos for you to enjoy!
