Stamper’s Showcase March 2020 Blog Hop – Happy Birthday!

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! This month’s theme is birthdays! I’ve decided to make this fun card that focuses on some simple stamping techniques and basic layering. 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 wanted to take a moment to throw you back to one of my earlier videos that features this same layout and technique. You can see that video on my YouTube channel by clicking here. I love this layout because it’s simple and easy to create with a variety of stamp sets. This card is slightly narrower than a typical card. (Mostly because I didn’t know I had already cut some off the edge before I scored and folded it for my card base!) But I really think the slightly narrower card is fun and it will still fit in our envelopes, so that’s a win!

I started by choosing three colors. Too many colors and it might look too busy. I used Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry. I cut a strip of Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock to use as my guide on where to stamp. I laid down the Crumb Cake card stock over my Whisper White card mat at an angle and moved it slightly when I wanted to stamp one of my images. I repeated this until I had all the background stamped behind the strip of card stock.

Then I stamped my sentiment and omitted the ‘Let’s’ and just stamped the ‘Celebrate You’ onto a strip of Whisper White 1/2″ smaller than the Crumb Cake strip. I adhered the Whisper White strip to the Crumb Cake strip with Snail Adhesive and then popped the Crumb Cake up onto the card mat using some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some lovely crinkled seam binding ribbon in a bow, and scattered some Pearls.

I don’t normally go for these colors together, but I was feeling kind of 70’s today lol What three colors would you have used on this card? Send me a picture via Instagram or Facebook and let me see your creation! You can find me @mkre8tions.

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!

Don’t forget, right now during SAB there are so many ways to earn FREE product! You can either Shop, Host, or Join! I’d love to talk to you more about any of these amazing opportunities, just send me a message or click the images below!

BONUS VIDEO – Weathered Waterfall

I was so excited to get this video filmed and up I decided to film it TWICE! lol The first video was no good half way through because I was burning a candle next to my camera and it made the image wavy. SOOOO, I wanted to film it again and make sure you had the BEST video experience! This time I plugged in my Copper Scentsy warmer and NO WAVY LINES! 😀

I used the Weather Together stamp set on this AWESOME waterfall card. I LOVE this technique so much and this fun fold is sure to entertain the recipient!

I learned this technique way back and wanted to bring it back with a fun twist by telling a story through pictures. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making!
