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″

Rooted in Nature Crate Container

Welcome to the Ink & Share Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping with so many talented
Stampin’ Up!®️ Demonstrators from around the globe! Today’s hop is featuring anything but cards. So what does that mean? Well, it could be boxes, scrapbook layouts, place cards for table settings, just about any paper craft that isn’t a card! I love this theme and am excited to share my project with you!

Don’t forget to click that Next button at the bottom of this post to hop around to all of the talented demonstrators participating this month!

I can’t get over how ADORABLE this Crate Box is! I was scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration on the Rooted in Nature Bundle and stumbled across Nadine’s Stampin Club. She posted this gorgeous box, and I believe it was inspired by Sabine’s Kreativecke. Thank you ladies, for your amazing talent and for sharing this wonderful project with the world!

So, in my video, I highly encouraged viewers to come to this blog post so that they could see the list of measurements. I think it’s a lot easier to cut paper for a project when it’s all in one, neat list. So, below are the measurements and the materials I’ve used on this project today. Don’t forget to scroll all the way down to check out the video tutorial and then hop around to all of the other wonderful demonstrators on this blog hop by clicking on the Next button!

Measurements:

Crate – Early Espresso 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (cut 2 pieces from Wood Crate Die)
Wrap – Old Olive 3-3/8″ x 9-3/4″ (length is approximate if you score as I did in the video)
The first two score lines on the wrap are 1-3/4″ & 3-1/2″
With the crate on the wrap, fold and score around crate for snug fit.
Very Vanilla DIY DSP Panels:

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″
Silver Foil Scrap
