Stampers Showcase Blog Hop Babies

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! The theme is Babies & Children, and I’m super excited about this one because I’m expecting my first baby very soon! 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!

For this card, I decided to keep it super simple and let the coloring really shine through. I stamped the mother and baby fox in Stazon Jet Black ink so that I could use the watercolor technique and prevent the black lines from bleeding.

This image was really fun to color in. I decided to use Pumpkin Pie as the main color, and accent the darker areas of the fox with Cajun Craze. I colored in the little ear insides and the nose with Blushing Bride. The tail and chins I used super light Pumpkin Pie just to keep them from looking too white.

I added a few of the Basic Jewel Rhinestones around the fox to add a little more interest to the card. I love how quick and simple this card was to make, and coloring in the foxes was very soothing.

These clean and quick cards are the perfect baby shower accompaniment, or could make a gift themselves when done in packs of 3 or 5 with some envelopes to go with. You could even add in a package of rhinestones and leave them off the cards so the recipient gets to put them on for fun!

ICS Blog Hop Beautiful Bundles

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today and we have some very fun bundles to share with you! 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’ve decided to showcase the Sailing Home Bundle today, along with a few extra bits from the suite of products that coordinate beautifully. I’ve scoured Pinterest for some layout inspiration and came across Heather Klump’s beautiful project which you can see here. My layout is almost identical to Heather’s, but she used an older Stampin’ Up! set for her focal pieces.

I rarely make square cards, or any card that isn’t the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, but this one really stood out to me. I loved the tile look and the floating accents in the foreground. It was a lot of fun to put together and not as time consuming as I thought it might be.

And I absolutely love the Sail Away Trinkets! They just add a pop of shine. I did color mine with an Old Olive Dark Stampin’ Blend alcohol based marker, but it would look beautiful heat embossed in some copper or gold embossing powder as well.

Check out my video tutorial below to see exactly how this card came together, and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more video tutorials!

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Fancy Folds

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today and we have some very fun folds to share with you! 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!

For my project today, I’ve decided to make a Half Easel Card. What I love so much about this fancy fold is that you have the large canvas of the inside card mat to play with, as well as a pop-up element to make the card a bit more… fancy!

I went with the Rooted in Nature stamp set because it had a large and interesting sentiment I could place on the right hand side of the inner mat, as well as an elongated image that is perfect for the narrow easel on the left.

Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake are the perfect colors for this card! It can be both masculine and feminine, and there are so many design changes that could be made. This will work with a variety of different stamp sets. Use your imagination and show me what you come up with! Tag me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook! @MKre8tions

Here’s my video tutorial to demonstrate how this card is made. Be sure to visit my YouTube channel and click that SUBSCRIBE button! It helps me to continue making videos for you to enjoy!

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 4

Here’s card #4 in my new series, Clean & Quick Cards! I was, of course, browsing Pinterest and saw a printed card similar to the one I made here. It was colorful, and had pops of shimmer with rhinestones, and the sentiment really stood its own ground and made a bold statement in black ink. I loved it so much I had to recreate it for you!

This card is definitely clean & quick, and I can’t wait to show you how easy it is!
