Jumping Boxes Tutorial

Hello Kre8tors, welcome to my blog! Today I’m sharing a SUPER FUN interactive project with you. Jumping Boxes! These are SO neat! I was a little intimidated at first, I didn’t know how they worked or how difficult they would be, but the truth is if you can use scissors and have a rubber band,
you CAN make these! Scroll down for a video tutorial, FREE PDF tutorial, and template!

My husband made a pair of beaded stitch markers for my mom for Mother’s Day and asked me to make a little package to put them in. Well, I didn’t want a plain ol’ boring box. I wanted something FUN! And FUN is exactly what I made! These jumping boxes are so neat, they just jump right out at you when you open the matchbox style box.

The boxes fold completely flat and once they are released, the spring open with the rubber band mechanism. Pretty neat, huh?! Not to mention, the Peaceful Poppies suite makes this box look good!

I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP, Elements and Sequins to decorate the outside of the box. The sentiment is from the stamp set A Wish For Everything. I really love how easy and quick the decorations came together. These products are perfect for fast creations! They are all retiring, so hopefully it’s not too late to grab yours if they are still in stock by the time this blog post goes up!

Along with my husband’s gift box to house his present, I wanted my gift to my mom to match, so I used some of our DSP and wrapped up my gift. I used the beautiful Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to finish it off. Along with this matching card, which you can see here, and her gifts were done!

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.

Peaceful Poppies Thank You Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Thank you cards are always needed. Someone gives you a gift, someone does you a kindness, or maybe you want to give them as a gift to someone else who would appreciate the work and love you put into your kre8tions. I hope you find these thank you cards inspiring and give them a try!

The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle makes this card super simple. I used a standard Whisper White card base, and then stamped the splatter images from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and cut it out on my die cutting machine using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies.

The poppy accent is from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. So easy to just pop it out of the pre-cut thick card stock sheet and adhere it with a glue dot. There’s also vellum and watercolor pieces with the elements that can really elevate your card game.

Probably one of my favorite items in the Suite Bundle would have to be the Peaceful Poppies Sequins. There are a variety of shapes and colors, and they add the perfect bling to the project. I always like to add them in batches of 3 or 5, and adhere them using some Liquid Glue along with the Take Your Pick tool. It’s super helpful when trying to pick up those tiny sequins!

The black swirl accent in the background is so much fun and reminds me so much of the Swirly Bird set. It adds just the right background element on this card. I stamped the sentiment using StazOn ink in Jet Black. I love how crisp and clean this card design looks.

I really hope you enjoyed this card design. I would love to see you case it! Just tag me on social media. You can find me just about everywhere with @mkre8tions

Mountain Air Bundle Birthday Sunset

Hello Kre8tors! Thanks so much for coming back! And if you’re new here, welcome! I’m glad you found your way to my blog. Today I’m sharing a birthday card I made for my brother using the Mountain Air Bundle.

I knew as soon as I saw this card I was going to make it for my brother’s birthday. I thought a sunset would look so beautiful behind those mountains! I cut them out from Basic Black card stock to give the illusion of a silhouette.

I cut four trees from Basic Black card stock as well, two of the detailed trees and two of the smaller solid trees. I thought those could represent the four members of his family. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using the Label Me Bold stamp set and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Powder on a scrap of black cardstock. This really made it stand out nicely!

I used the masking technique for the sun to get it bright white in the background. I love this technique, and using a sticky note makes it super easy!

Be sure you take a look at my video tutorial to see how this card came together, and the creative process of me struggling to find just the right placement for all these pieces!

June Kre8tors Blog Hop Dads & Grads

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you are joining us for this Dads & Grads themed hop! Be sure to scroll down to the Roll Call List to hop along to the next demonstrator for some wonderful inspiration!

I am SUPER excited about my project today because it’s colorful, fun, and DIFFERENT from anything I’ve done! The bundle I’ve used is called Sailing Home and includes the cling mount stamp set along with the Smooth Sailing dies. This sea-worthy set was the first item I purchased from our new annual catalog, and I’m so glad because it’s been amazing!

I tried to replicate the sailor’s knot in the stamp set on the front of my card for a little added something. This is a very special card for a very special man in my life; my father. He’s been my true North, for sure! Teaching me right and wrong, showing me how to be independent and strong.

He is also a fan of tie-dye, so I thought the vibrant and colorful background was perfect for him. This card features a technique that I haven’t used before. I’m not sure if it has an official name, but let’s just call this the Partial Die Cutting technique.

Want to see how it’s done? Check out the video below, and then come back and hop along to see more amazing inspiration for this Dads & Grads themed hop!
