December Christmas Inspiration for Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s time to get Komfy, it’s time to get Kozy, it’s time to get Kre8tiv! Welcome back Kre8tors! Today we have a super fun blog hop for you to follow because we are showcasing Christmas Cards! To me, nothing beats a cold, wintery day bundled up inside with some hot coffee, a huge sweater, and craft time! So come hop along with some amazingly talented Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the world and get inspired during our Kre8tors Blog Hop!

I am so in love with these cards, it’s ridiculous! They just seem super cozy to me, and I’m not sure if it’s because it reminds me of a house and Christmas time, or just what it is… Of course I was scouring Pinterest for some inspiration and came across a post from The Paper Collage with a cute little French Door Gatefold Card. I definitely had to CASE it and tweak some aspects to be able to use the materials that I had on hand.

For the red card I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Whisper White Craft Ink for the distressed areas. I used Very Vanilla on the inside and stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobber ink. The greenery on the doors is done with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, and the bow is made out of some Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I added two little silver brads for the door knobs, and YAY! French Doors!

The second card is a little more elegant, with a Whisper White base and metallic accents. You can see how it all came together in my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″ from each end.
Whisper White Panels (2 of each size):

Christmas is Coming ICS Blog Hop

Welcome to another blog hop with the Inspire, Create, & Share crew! We are a group of global independent demonstrators with Stampin’ Up!®️ that love to Inspire, Create, and Share projects with you! This month’s theme is Christmas is Coming and we were tasked with creating a 3D Christmas Gift Idea. I decided to show off how to package a Christmas gift using some amazing products!

My name is Melissa Tennison, and I’d love to tell you about my project today!

I’ve taken our Mini Pizza Box and turned it into the perfect packaging for a small gift such as homemade treats, jewelry or gift cards. I’ve also made a coordinating card to go with our fun little gift box. I’m calling this Rose Gold because of all the shades of glittery, glorious pink and sparkly-ness!

I found my pinspiration for this card from Melissa Stout of The Stamp Doc. Her card was so beautiful, I wanted to make one of my own! I used the Rose Glimmer Paper, and Berry Burst and Smoky Slate for my color scheme. I love using gray as a neutral, and often pair it with bold colors to really make them stand out. I’ve also thrown in a little bit of Champagne Foil to give the border a little bling.

The snowflakes were created using the Blizzard thinlit die. It cuts out SOOOO many snowflakes all at one time! It’s amazing for making a lot of blizzard cards. I added some rhinestones to the centers of my snowflakes, as well as around them. This is one of my favorite holiday cards this year!

For my Mini Pizza Box, I made a belly band out of the Champagne Foil, tied some ribbon around it, and then added some Rose Metallic thread and a snowflake to the top. I scattered a few more snowflakes and sequins on the box, and my packaging was done! It was that quick! Check out my video below to see some awesome tips and tricks for both of these projects!

Smoky Slate Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
