September 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop Brides and Babies

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Brides and Babies! That means our blog hop group could make a card that had something to do with brides, weddings, bachelorette, etc. or babies like a welcome baby card, baby’s birthday card, etc.

Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more inspiration!

I have TWO weddings and FOUR babies (one of which is mine!) happening in my life within the next year, so it was a tough choice on projects. Because I just made a baby card a few posts back, I decided to focus on the soon-to-be brides in my life and make a card and tag set to send with their gifts.

I searched Pinterest for some inspiration and came across Artisan Design Team Member Narelle Farrugia’s post using First Frost and was absolutely in awe! The colors and design were so gorgeous, I knew that I wanted to make it as exact as I could! If you haven’t seen her designs, definitely check her out by clicking here.

The colors I chose are Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, and Basic Gray. These colors work wonderfully together! The bright colors against the neutrals really is what made me fall in love with these designs. Take a peek at my video below to see how these projects came together!

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 3

Here’s a Star Ornament card for the third card in my series Clean & Quick Cards. I really like how clean this card looks. It takes very few materials and can be made out of virtually any punch or framelit that gives a solid shape.

I also really like how the silver foil shines through. I used Calypso Coral but any color would look fantastic with this card!

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Silver Foil: 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″

Poinsettia from Scratch

I wanted to replicate a pattern on my leggings, but didn’t have the poinsettia punch so I improvised! It’s a bit of a mish-mash, but I think for what I had on hand it came out pretty well. I used a LOT of different framelits and thinlits to get this beautiful Christmas flower, so be sure to check below for all the materials used.

I love finding inspiration for my cards in unexpected places, and I think finding inspiration from a clothing item is so awesome! It’s a color combination that I would have NEVER put together myself, so I’m glad I got out of my comfort bubble to give this a go!

Measurements

Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap Pieces – Large enough to cut out assorted pieces
