Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 1 and Kre8tors Blog Hop Mini Catalog

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration! Now, onto a very beautiful and special project using the Honey Bee Bundle and some GORGEOUS Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!

I CASE’d this project from page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. I have already CASE’d one of them in a previous post, and will be CASE-ing the other in an upcoming post. I wanted to share this card with you because it uses some of the amazing gold foil papers from the Golden Honey Speciality DSP. When I first saw this paper, I knew I HAD to have it! There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it! And you bet I will be spending additional SAB rewards I earn on MORE!

This was a simple card to make, but it offers SO much! The stunning black background with the pops of Coastal Cabana… the delicate gold foil bee under the simple and small ‘Hello’ sentiment… the subtle hint of Coastal Cabana in the honeycomb under the gold bee… this card is packed full of beautiful details!

The best part about this paper? It’s absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase! Just $50 in product will earn you a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. So that means if you purchased the Honey Bee Bundle, that gorgeous Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you can get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! Ask your demonstrator for details, or if you don’t have a demonstrator or are new to Stampin’ Up! go ahead and send me a message! I’d love to help you out!

The best part about CASE-ing the catalogs and flyers is that on some pages, Stampin’ Up! tells you exactly what you need to create these projects. On page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer, they give you a list of products you will need to create three beautiful projects. I followed that list to create this card, however I wasn’t able to get my hands on the beautiful Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon when I made this card, so I substituted for the Metallic Baker’s Twine that came in the Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack, which is also a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Check out my video tutorial below to find out how this beautiful card came together. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great tutorials!

How to “Deconstruct” (CASE) a Card

Today’s tutorial is all about “Deconstructing” cards so that you can CASE any card without having the measurements. I’m going to show you how I “eyeball” it and my secret for CASEing cards without instructions. I love to flip through our catalogs and brochures to find inspiration to craft my projects. I CASE a lot of cards, sometimes with directions, but most of the time I wing it. I think of it like a puzzle, and find it fun! What are some of your best tips for re-creating a project you’ve seen? Let me know by commenting on my video or on this post!

I’d like to challenge you to figure out the measurements on this card yourself! Write down your guesses, and then watch the video above to see if you were close!

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!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″
Smoky Slate Scrap: Approximately 1/2″ x 3″
