Beautiful Blizzard Holiday Card

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back, so glad you are joining me today for some craftiness on this blustery day! I am so glad that my family shares my love and passion for stamping and crafting. My mother is one of my biggest supporters, both emotionally and financially. She has quite the collection of Stampin’ Up!®️ products, so we often get to “borrow” each other’s things. I did just that with this Beautiful Blizzard set.

She purchased this set, with no real projects in mind. Sometimes those are the BEST purchases, because then you can be inspired by so many other wonderful crafters. My mother handed me this set and said, show me what I can make. So, I took to Pinterest and came across Krista Driessen’s Beautiful Blizzard card. She inspired me to CASE her card, and it’s absolutely stunning!

The only color that I used from her original project was Soft Sea Foam. The other colors I incorporated include Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, and Coastal Cabana. I also threw in some Linen Thread, Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins, and Rhinestones. I totally love this clean and quick card and can’t wait to make my Holiday cards with this design and loads of colors!

Some of my most favorite cards are often the simplest. I love the cards that involve a lot of stamping, like this design. There are lots of beautiful stamps in different colors, and then a pop of accents here and there. It’s flat, with the exception of the raised sentiment, though that could be stamped flat on the card base and would look beautiful as well. Take a peek at my video tutorial to see how my version of this card came together!

The Beautiful Blizzard stamp set can be bundled with the Blizzard Thinlits Die to save you 10%! Be sure to stay tuned as my next project will feature both of these amazing products!

Whisper White Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″

Elegant CASEd Card with Winter Woods & the Stamparatus

Today we are using some “Pinspiration” for this gorgeous and elegant CASE’d card using the Winter Woods Bundle. I know, I know… maybe you are getting a little tired of seeing the Winter Woods Bundle in action, but I can’t help it! It’s such a fun set to play with! And this elegant card was CASE’d from a card by Mary Fish of Stampin’ Pretty. Her card was so gorgeous I had to recreate one of my own!

I used Smoky Slate for the card mat, and Gray Granite for the stamped images. Silver Foil accented the sprigs behind the Stitched Shapes Framelit and a bit of Linen Thread tied it together well. The vellum makes a beautiful, soft accent to really enhance the elegant qualities of the card.

You know how much I like my bling, so I decided to add a few Rhinestones to the sentiment. All in all, this card turned out well and was so much fun to put together! I used this card in my Winter Woods Bundle class that I held a few weekends ago. It was a huge success, and everyone loved the background featuring the amazing Stamparatus! See it in action in my video below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Smoky Slate Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White for Stamped Trees: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″
Vellum: 2-3/4″ x 4″
Whisper White for Sentiment: Approximately 3″ x 3″
Silver Foil for Sprigs: Approximately 3″ x 6″

A Happy Match

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are getting FESTIVE with TWO amazing bundles, and I am so excited to share this project with you! I received a comment on my YouTube channel asking me to CASE the back of the Holiday Catalog. I hadn’t even really taken much notice to the projects on the back page until I read that comment. When I took the time to look at that photo, I realized how AMAZING it was! So thank you so much, Diana, for the suggestion!

This card used a LOT of TLC! I didn’t have any Designer Series Paper on hand, so I decided to ATTEMPT to make my own PLAID! Wow, that was tough. After one failed attempt, I decided to try a different method, and so this DIY DSP Plaid background paper was born! I go into a lot of detail in my YouTube video, link below. Be sure to check it out to see how this card came together!

All in all, using the materials I had on hand, I think this CASE’d card came out very well! What do you think? Are you ready to give this card a try with the materials that YOU have on hand? If you do, take a photo and upload it to Social Media, and TAG me! I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest as @MKre8tions. You can also post a photo to my Facebook page!

One of my favorite things about the Winter Woods Bundle is how unique the framelits are! You are able to create some beautiful dimension and depth with these framelits. Love adding a hint of Wink of Stella to the boughs as well! When pairing the Winter Woods Bundle with the Rooted in Nature Bundle, it does make a Happy Match indeed! These sets work beautifully together! I can’t wait to play more!

Measurements:

Garden Green Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Scored @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White for DIY DSP Plaid: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shimmer White: Approximately 4″ x 4″
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″
Cherry Cobbler Scraps: Approximately 3″ x 2″

Birch Trees Christmas Card

Hello Kre8tors! I have finished three projects so far using the Winter Woods Bundle. I have to say this bundle is by far my favorite from the Holiday Catalog. It’s so versatile! All three of these cards are so completely different, yet they are all from the same stamp and die set!

This is probably my favorite card, out of the cards I’ve made so far using Winter Woods. The birch tree background was so much fun to do on the Stamparatus! I could make so many of these! I didn’t use the same technique that Stampin’ Up!®️ used when they created this project as a sample in the Holiday Catalog. I do think I got pretty close to their results, however! Next one I make, I am definitely adding some Clear Wink of Stella to the birch trees!

Be sure to check out my video tutorial below, or on my YouTube channel, to see how it came together! I filmed this during a live Facebook tutorial. I go live quite often in my VIP Stamp Lounge, exclusive for my customers and team members. If you’d like to join us over there, simply place an order with me or join my team! I’d love to talk to you more about the different reasons why this will be the best choice for you!

Already have a demonstrator, or are a demonstrator? Not a problem! Follow my business page on Facebook to say hi when I go live over there!

Measurements:

Cherry Cobbler Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Cherry Cobbler Background Strips: 2-1/2″ x 5″ (Cut in half lengthwise after embossing)
Cherry Cobbler Strip for Sentiment: 1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Whisper White for DIY DSP: 3″ x 5-1/2″ + Scrap for Pretty Label
Vellum: 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″

Holiday Catalog Preview with the Ink & Share Blog Hop

Today is all about the Holiday Catalog, which launches for customers on September 5. Be sure to scroll down to the Next button and hop along to the other talented demonstrators participating, you won’t want to miss out!
I am so excited to share my project with you, so let’s dive in!

The first bundle I knew I had to get from the Holiday Catalog was Winter Woods. I am all about that #treelife living in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, USA). Trees just call to me, and this set practically begged me to bring it home! I knew I wanted to CASE the catalog and I did just that!

I sponge daubed the tree in Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover for a variegated effect. I used some beautiful vellum for accent trees, and linen thread for the bow. I love how it turned out! If you want to see some behind the scenes on how this card was made, check out the video below!

Don’t forget about Bonus Days! Every $50 you spend in August, before shipping and tax, you earn a $5 coupon redeemable in September! That’s 10% cash back! Grab some of the supplies that I used on this card now, and you can use your Bonus Days coupon next month towards the Winter Woods bundle!

Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
DSP Accent: 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
