Floral Cake Sale-A-Bration Crossover

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share a crossover card with you! What makes it a crossover card, you might ask? It combines a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration coordinating product, and a bundle from the Annual Catalog! I think these products work beautifully together, and I’m so excited to share this fun, floral cake card with you!

I knew I wanted to use the Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. This stamp set is gorgeous and perfect for birthdays, Mother’s Day, or just because! I was able to watercolor a piece of Whisper White cardstock with an Aqua Painter and some Pool Party ink before stamping the cake image with my Memento ink pad in Black.

I also stamped a second cake in Memento on a clean piece of Whisper White card stock so that I could color in and cut out the flowers with the coordinating Sale-A-Bration product, Birthday Dies. I love that these dies cut out both the cake and the flowers! It’s a genius way to get double duty from this stamp set! I also cut out some small leaves from a scrap piece of vellum and colored them in using the Soft Sea Foam Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker.

The Bloom & Grow floral image behind this cake was the perfect element to just peek out from behind. I love the greenery sprigs and think it really adds dimension to this cake. I also took the Pool Party Dark Stampin’ Blend marker and traced over the black lines on the cake and pedestal to give the cake a little more definition and shadowing effect. I bunched up some Silver Thread to put behind the cake, and added Rhinestones to the center of the flowers for a little extra bling.

Can you believe that these flowers are colored in with a Pumpkin Pie Light Stampin’ Blend Marker? I think it looks so good! I really didn’t expect the orange to go with the blue and green, but it totally works! I used the Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to lighten up some of the areas of the rose that I thought should have a bit of light on them. Finally I touched up a few of the round greenery leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. Love that bling!

Noble Peacock Suite Bundle

Hello Kre8tors! If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re a returning reader, thanks for coming back! Today we are playing with the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle! I’ve CASE’d the Annual Catalog and have filmed a tutorial on how I created this beautiful card. I can’t wait to tell you all about it! Come and have a look!

There are so many different ways to get your goodies. First, you can buy all of the items in the bundle individually, or just pick and choose your favorites. Second, you can purchase just the stamps and dies together in a bundle and save 10%. And the last, and best in my opinion, option is the Suite Bundle! That includes ALL of the amazing products in the suite, PLUS you still save that 10% off the stamps and dies. It’s a GREAT deal if you love all the items in a full product suite. Check out the Materials section for all of the different choices!

The Beads and Baubles Embossing Folder is gorgeous with amazing texture! I’ve used the indented side of the embossing folder on the front of my card base and just love how it turned out!

The Reversible Ribbon makes a beautiful accent behind my Stitched Shape oval alongside the sentiment and adorable daisies from the stamp set. And can we talk about the Peacock Tail? That die cut is so detailed and beautiful!

Measurements:

Blackberry Bliss Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Inner Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Outer Mat: 3″ x 4-1/4″
Vellum: 3″ x 4-1/4″
Scrap White: Approx. 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Materials:

(The first image below is the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle that includes all of the products shown on page 25 of the Annual Catalog. After the sponge daubers, I have included the Royal Peacock Bundle which is just the stamps and dies, and then after that I broke out each item in the Noble Peacock Suite Bundle so you can see everything you get!)

If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would love to be your Creative Coach! How can I help you?

If your order is over $150, don’t use a hostess code because you qualify for your own Stampin’ Rewards!

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.

Click on the Next button below to hop on over to Su’s blog to see her lovely project! There’s also a Roll Call List below in case you get lost along the way.

Daisy Delight Double Z-Fold Cased Card – What Was That Wednesday

I don’t have a new tutorial for you today, but I’ll be starting a new series on my blog called What Was That Wednesday. I will be showcasing some of my past projects that are my viewer’s favorites! This Double Z-Fold Card that I first posted in June 2017 is my most popular card tutorial I’ve done on YouTube to date with just over 14,000 views. I followed a tutorial from Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa and put my own spin on her versions of this card. She’s from the UK, even though I think I mistakenly said Australia in the video. 😉 I hope you enjoy this What Was That series, and hopefully it’s new for some of you!


I’m so excited to be sharing this card I CASE’d from Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa using the Daisy Delight bundle! *SQUEE!* This is SUCH a fun Double Z-Fold card, and I am SO excited to get to use this adorable Daisy Delight stamp set and punch!

This is a very special card for a very special lady, who will PROBABLY see this post at some point before she’s supposed to see this post…. but I just couldn’t wait to share!!!

It feels SO good to get back in my videos! They may not be frequent, but I am STILL HERE and not going anywhere!!! 😀

I did this as a live broadcast over on my Facebook page, and then uploaded the replay to my YouTube channel, but here are some more photos to enjoy as well!

2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop – Occasions Petal Palette

Welcome to the first ever 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to start this hop along with some very talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! January’s theme is Occasions to celebrate the launch of our 2018 Occasions Catalog! There are some AMAZING goodies in this catalog so be sure to visit each of the links at the end of this blog post to see everyone’s projects!

My project was using the Petal Palette Bundle. I think this is one of my FAVORITE new sets! I am sure I will be getting SO much use out of this bundle! I colored in the roses with our new Stampin’ Blends markers in Rich Razzleberry and our tried and true favorites, the Stampin’ Write markers in Garden Green and Wild Wasabi for the leaves. I did not use the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to blend my colors because I love how the outline looks.

This is set against a background of Basic Gray and Smoky Slate with a few fun little flowers falling down from the top of the card. Life is so much better with you in it and I’m so glad you are here to start off this Blog Hop with us!

Measurements:

Cardbase: Rich Razzleberry 4-1/4″ x 11″, score @ 5-1/2″
Mat 1: Basic Gray 4″ x 5-1/4″
Mat 2: Very Vanilla 3-3/4″ x 5″ (x 2)
Scrap Very Vanilla: Approx. 4″ x 5″

Materials:
