ISS Blog Hop Anything Goes

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing my Quick DSP Card using the Forever Greenery Suite Collection. These cards can be made quickly and they are relatively flat, which is great for mailing!

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!

This card features the Forever Fern stamp set, the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies, the gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, and the beautiful ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. I absolutely love all the shades of green on this card!

I love doing a “z” style ribbon fold behind my sentiments. I think it adds just the right amount of texture. This ribbon stands out well against the designer series paper layer, and the stripes compliment the fern images nicely.

I achieved the variegated look on my ferns by inking my stamp in a lighter color, and then going over the edges with a sponge dauber and a darker color. This is a great technique to play with!

I finished this card off with a few pearl accents and love how it turned out! It’s so simple and easy to make. Using the beautiful designer series paper really adds some fun to the background.

The Kre8tors First VLOG Hop

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the first Kre8tors VLOG Hop! Today we are sharing our projects via YouTube videos! So head on over to my YouTube channel to get started. Once there, click on the description of the video to hop along to everyone’s projects.

I absolutely love CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) the catalogs. Not only can we use our catalogs to find great products to buy, but we can also use it as a design book! There are so many beautiful projects in there, the possibilities are nearly endless!

I chose to CASE one of the cards from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection on page 108 in the brand new Annual Catalog. I was so pleased with how this card turned out. It came together very quickly with all of the coordinating products from the collection.

I love the speckled background. I used the speckled stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamped it onto the embossed background in the same color as my card stock. It gives it a watermark effect and just adds a little texture.

The leaves are all cut out of the designer series paper using the coordinating die cuts. I love that Stampin’ Up! designs their products to all play together so well. It makes crafting so simple and quick!

Watch my video below to see how this card came together.

ICS Blog Hop Hello New Colors

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share the brand new In-Colors with you today! Every two years, Stampin’ Up! does a mini color refresh with the In-Color collections. This year the new set debuted, and I’m so anxious to share them with you!

We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today! 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!

There are five brand new, beautiful colors that we will play with today! I wanted to make a card layout that would work well for all the colors. I decided to stick with a solid white background, and add the pops of color to make each one really stand out. I also was excited to play with a brand new bundle from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection.

Although the new In-Color ink pads are not quite available, I was still able to make this fun card using my Versamark stamp pad and some White Stampin’ Emboss powder. Heat embossing sentiments is a GREAT way to get color and words on your card without the words blending into the background.

I also really love how the Stazon in Jet Black can help to accentuate the colors. I stamped one of the greenery images on Whisper White card stock, then cut it out with the coordinating dies. I placed it on top of the designer series paper, but behind all of my other elements to really help them stand out.

Making multiple cards of the same layout in different colors is one of my all time favorite ways to craft! Not only do I get a bunch of cards at the end, but I get to see how each color works with my design. If you haven’t tried “assembly line” crafting yet, you might want to consider giving it a try!

Check out my YouTube tutorial to see my In-Color packages I put together for some of my customers as well as my process for designing and assembling these beautiful cards. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you never miss a tutorial!

ISS Blog Hop May 2020 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be sharing a sneak peek of the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog with you today! I received my pre-order and wanted to make a card using the Forever Greenery Suite Collection. Come and see what I made and watch my YouTube tutorial to see an unboxing of my pre-order!

We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today! 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 play with this suite collection right away, and there’s no better way to get started than to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the catalog! I started off with a standard card base in Whisper White. Then I chose a background piece from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I noticed on the card in the catalog from page 108 they glued this piece gold side down. As much as I didn’t want to do this, I did it anyway, and I really do love how it turned out!

Next I embossed a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock with one of the embossing folders from the Greenery set. I trimmed it down to a thin 1/2″ banner. I stamped two leaf images in Pear Pizzazz, one full ink, and one without re-inking for a lighter image. This is called second generation stamping. I then stamped four of the rounded leaves/berries in Pretty Peacock using the same method.

I picked out a few more pieces from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to include in my arrangement. After getting my placement down, I adhered all the small cut pieces using a combination of liquid glue and glue dots. Then I added the banner.

The gold hoop is attached to the back of the sentiment with tear and tape adhesive, then Stampin’ Dimensionals pop it up off the background. I died some of the trim from the Trim Combo pack using my Classic Stampin’ Pad and a Sponge Dauber, and then tied it into a bow to add to the top.

I’m so pleased with how this card turned out! CASEing the catalog when you need some inspiration, or just a quick crafting session is a great way to get started. Check out my YouTube tutorial below for specifics on this card and to see my preorder unboxing!
