Spring is in the Air with Ink Stamp Share

Welcome back to the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop! January’s theme is our beautiful Spring/Summer Catalog that just launched. It’s called the Occasions Catalog and is full of amazing and beautiful things! One of my favorite bundles is the Meant to Be Bundle featured right at the beginning of the catalog.

I gained my inspiration for this card from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Cindi Clarke. I stumbled across her Pinterest pin and fell in love. I did quite a few tweaks to really make this card my own, and added the pink striped heart, side flourish, and removed the mat layer she used. I also chose to use our Gold Foil.

One of my absolute favorite features on this card has to be the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gives a beautiful quilted look to your project. The Gold Foil really takes well to this embossing folder and holds the shape beautifully. I rounded my heart slightly to make it look a little “poofier”. Take a look at my video below to see how it’s done!

This is one of the cards I am offering my Galentine’s Day participants. We are making 5 Valentine Cards with envelopes. I’m really excited to show my students this fun project! Stay tuned for my other videos in the series by subscribing to my YouTube channel!

Fall Inspiration

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are a group of international Stampin’ Up!®️Demonstrators who love paper crafting and sharing. Today’s theme is Fall For All! I’m so excited for this hop because Autumn is my favorite time of year. The air gets crisper, the days get shorter, and it’s the best time to get cozy and snug with mugs of coffee and lit candles! It’s the absolute best!

My project today features two amazing products from the Holiday Catalog. The Winter Woods Bundle and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. These two products are my absolute favorites from this catalog and I am so pleased with how this Fall inspired card turned out.

I’m also using a fun technique that I first saw from fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett, on her YouTube channel. She uses several layers of ink on a stamp to create beautiful, variegated images using the Stamparatus. I thought that technique was so fun, I really had to try it myself and thought this Autumn Card would be the perfect opportunity to bring in some of those gorgeous Fall colors!

There are so many fantastic products in this hop! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this page and click the Next button to hop on over to Candy’s blog to see her adorable project using the Trick or Tweet stamp set!

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit Broadway Star

Welcome back, Kre8tors! I have been sitting on the June Paper Pumpkin kit for a few days now, but I finally busted it open and guess what?! I FILMED IT! So here’s a fun new video for you to enjoy featuring the two different card styles from Broadway Star!

The colors in this month’s kit are SO beautiful! I absolutely adore green and pink together. In fact those were the colors of my original logo when I first started Melissa’s Kre8tions! Take a look!

Okay, that’s enough nostalgia for now! Let’s get into the good stuff! I really hope you enjoy this month’s kit, and be sure to check back on June 30th where I will be hopping with the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop crew to show you some fabulous alternates from this kit!

Don’t forget, this kit coordinates beautifully with the Broadway Bound suite in the Annual Catalog. Head over to my online shop to take a peek!

Rose Gold Happy Birthday Card – NO STAMPING

I am ALL about that Rose Gold, baby! I love it! My computer, my phone case, my tablet, my accessory pouch, even my highlighter… if something comes in Rose Gold, I’m all about that! So, I made my take on a Rose Gold Birthday Card using our Happy Birthday Thinlits Die, some gold foil, and Powder Pink cardstock.

One of the great things about this card, NO STAMPING! That’s right, there are absolutely no stamps on this card whatsoever. There’s only big shot die cuts and some adhesive, that’s it! Such a fun card to put together. This would look beautiful in ANY color! I’ve used this Happy Birthday Thinlit Die so many times and love it on all my projects, especially on my Daisy Delight Double-Z Fold Card. There are so many great uses for this beautifully lettered die cut!

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″

Materials:

Don’t forget to use the current hostess code C994BZVS when you place your order to get a thank you card from me at the beginning of next month! Your support means a lot to me and helps me to continue doing what I love, which is making videos for you to enjoy.
