A Wish for Everything Square Card

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! I’m so excited to share a beautiful card with you today. This card features the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper from the second release Sale-A-Bration items. It’s FREE with a $50 purchase. I paired it with the A Wish For Everything Bundle and love how they work together!

I wanted to color in these beautiful flowers, so I used my Stampin’ Blends in an array of colors to make these flowers really pop. I used a combination of light and dark blends to create shadowing effects on the roses and leaves.

This card is not a standard size. Because I was delivering this to someone very special in person, I wanted to make a card size that I wouldn’t typically make since I didn’t have to mail it! It’s fun to give cards in person and be able to have full creative license and not have to stick to rigid guidelines for sending in the mail without extra postage.

I used the beautiful Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and colored in the roses with a variety of Stampin’ Blends markers. It was so much fun to color in the paper and it was very relaxing, too. It’s nice to find something relaxing to do to take my mind off things.

I fussy cut around the edges of the flowers and then glued this piece to the top of my card base. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones around the cluster of flowers for some bling. I used my Stampin’ Blend markers to color in an ombre background, and used that to cut out the word happy with the Word Wishes dies. Then I used the coordinating stamp ‘wishes’ from the A Word For Everything stamp set and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

This card went to a very special family and I’m so glad I could brighten their day with a handmade card. I know a lot of people that could use a little smile right now, so I’ll be making a lot of cards, I’m sure!

5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special & Giveaway

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so very excited to finally be posting my 5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special! I’ve been posting my video tutorials on YouTube since 2016 and am so excited to be hitting this milestone. Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement over the years. This community is so wonderful and I’m so lucky to have all of you supporting me in doing what I love!

Be sure to head over to my Specials page for your chance to enter to win 1 of 2 Stampin’ Up! Tote Bags!

I have a VERY special project and tutorial for you today. I was definitely inspired by the Coastal Crafter, Emma Goddard’s beautiful cards using the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, from the second release, with a qualifying purchase. She is a member of the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team. You can check out her beautiful work by visiting her website and following her on Instagram.

I decided to use her card as a baseline to create mine. The background has a very geometric characteristic, so I’m calling this technique the Geometric Cut technique. You can see how I go about it in my YouTube tutorial, which you can watch below or on my channel.

I started by using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad to color in the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper using a variety of techniques ranging from sponging, daubing, watercoloring, and direct to paper. I love how each one of them turned out, and am excited to play around with more techniques soon.

After I had my DSP colored in, I cut all the pieces I needed from the Gold Foil and Basic Gray card stock. Then I used the Geometric Cut technique to cut each of the three main papers the exact same way so they would come back together like a puzzle piece when I swapped them around.

After building my background, I worked on stamping, embossing, die cutting, and adhering all the little pieces to the front of the card. I am in LOVE with the Honey Bee Bundle and thought it would be PERFECT for this rose gold style card. I’m going to use these as the Thank You cards I send to my customers this month!

I also added some Rose Gold Metallic Thread and Champagne Rhinestones for a little extra pizzazz! These additional elements have the perfect touch to finish off this WOW card, I am just so in love with it. I think it might have something to do with my love for anything and everything Rose Gold!

Check out these other images. Just give them a click to see a larger photo.

Painted Poppies DSP Striped Cards

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share with you TWO cards using the Peaceful Poppies Suite of products! This suite is my FAVORITE from the new 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s packed full of amazing goodies! Have you purchased yours yet? I hope you do, because I don’t want you to miss out!

This first card was inspired by a post from Kimberly Wiener on Pinterest. I loved how hers looked and knew this stamp set would be perfect to CASE her card! I stamped my own DSP and colored them in by hand. This took a long time, but I think it was worth it in the end!

The star of the show on this card are the beautiful poppy stamps from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I used some Stampin’ Blends to color them, and adore how they turned out! They are so vibrant!

I also accented this card with some of those adorable Peaceful Poppies Sequins. Did you know that some of the sequins are flower shaped? They’re too fun and would make amazing shaker cards!

I used the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. This font is beautiful on these cards. I love it when lots of products coordinate together, just like every product in the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle!

This is a BONUS card, and an alternative to the lengthy coloring session that is needed for Card #1. This card features some of the Peaceful Poppies DSP, so it goes together much quicker!

I also used one of the die cut pieces from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. They were perfect with the piece of DSP I chose to use, and you can even color over them with the Stampin’ Blends! I added a little bow using the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon from this suite.

And of course, any poppies card wouldn’t be complete without those adorable flower shaped sequins that come in the Peaceful Poppies Sequins! I chose three different colors. What colors would you have used?

Again, the sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Bundle. I just love how the two fonts on this sentiment compliment each other. This is going to make a lovely birthday card for someone special.

Peaceful Poppies Speckled Card

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back for another poppies card! I am really in love with this one, and think the colors are so vibrant, they just POP! I hope you enjoy this card, and CASE it! (Copy and Share Everything). If you do CASE it, please share it on social media and tag me using @mkre8tions, I would love to give you a shoutout on my social media for CASEing my design.

I’ve used several of the products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite, which can be purchased in a Suite Bundle to save you time from having to enter ALL the item numbers in separately on an order. Keep scrolling for more info on that!

I started with a standard Whisper White card base, and then stamped some of the splatter images onto the base. I cut out a large poppy from one of the sheets in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper pack. This poppy is so vibrant and full of beautiful colors! I loved how it popped against the white.

Using the coordinating dies, I cut out the accent piece from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock. I also stamped the largest poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White, then speckled on some color using an Aqua Painter and a flicking motion. I also added a couple of the vellum leaf cut outs from the Peaceful Poppies Elements.

I dotted some of our liquid glue around the card and speckled on some of those gorgeous Peaceful Poppies sequins for a little bling! I adore all of the products in this suite, they are all so much fun to play with! Have you picked up yours yet? I’d love to give you even more inspiration when you do!

The last few finishing touches were to add some of that beautiful Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I cut a small piece and then folded it in half to look like the bottom of a banner ribbon, and adhered it using some mini glue dots. I love how the ribbon adds a little extra to this card.

Painted Poppies DSP Card & HAUL

Hello Kre8tors! Today I’m sharing my Peaceful Poppies DSP Card that I CASE’d from the Mini Catalog and the HAUL that I unboxed in my exclusive customer and team Facebook Group. Want in? Easy! Just become a customer by placing an order or join my team! Now, onto this beautiful and simple card!

The Peaceful Poppies Suite of products is full of amazing colors, images, and embellishments! The card I made for my customers and team members during my Facebook Live video used this gorgeous piece of designer series paper. It made making this card super easy! I just stamped the sentiment, cut it out with the coordinating die cut label, added some color to the pre-cut vellum shapes and glued them on. I also decided to add on some of the adorable gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins. It added a nice touch, I think.

The Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon adds a nice whimsical element behind the sentiment. It’s a lovely ribbon and I can think of a bunch of ways I want to use it in other projects! I’m so excited to get crafting with these materials!

Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to coordinate your projects with matching papers and inks. They list each color that is used in the suite so all you need to do is pick the color from the suite you like the best and you know it will coordinate beautifully on your project! I chose the Rich Razzleberry card base, as well as colored in the “happiness” with the Stampin’ Write Marker in the same color. I used my Classic Stampin’ Pad in Poppy Parade for the other parts of the sentiment.

Be sure you check my YouTube video below to see how this card came together, and to see my unboxing of some other great Mini Catalog products and Sale-A-Bration items!
