December Christmas Inspiration for Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s time to get Komfy, it’s time to get Kozy, it’s time to get Kre8tiv! Welcome back Kre8tors! Today we have a super fun blog hop for you to follow because we are showcasing Christmas Cards! To me, nothing beats a cold, wintery day bundled up inside with some hot coffee, a huge sweater, and craft time! So come hop along with some amazingly talented Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the world and get inspired during our Kre8tors Blog Hop!

I am so in love with these cards, it’s ridiculous! They just seem super cozy to me, and I’m not sure if it’s because it reminds me of a house and Christmas time, or just what it is… Of course I was scouring Pinterest for some inspiration and came across a post from The Paper Collage with a cute little French Door Gatefold Card. I definitely had to CASE it and tweak some aspects to be able to use the materials that I had on hand.

For the red card I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and Whisper White Craft Ink for the distressed areas. I used Very Vanilla on the inside and stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobber ink. The greenery on the doors is done with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, and the bow is made out of some Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I added two little silver brads for the door knobs, and YAY! French Doors!

The second card is a little more elegant, with a Whisper White base and metallic accents. You can see how it all came together in my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″ from each end.
Whisper White Panels (2 of each size):
1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
1-1/2″ x 3″
1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″
1-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scrap approximately 2″ x 5″

Sunken Images Card with Paisleys & Posies

I really have been loving the Eclipse cards lately, but this is more like the reverse eclipse card that I did with the Painted Harvest stamp set and the alphabets framelits dies. The idea is to have a detailed stamp behind a framelit cutout to make the image appear to be “sunken” into the card. Using different metallic embossing powders is a fun touch to this different card. I can’t wait to play around with this technique and other bundles! What bundle do you have that you think would work well with this technique?

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Gold Arrows Birthday Card

When I was visiting family over the past weekend, I went into a really fun store and picked up the most GORGEOUS mug! It has a teal-blue color on the handle and on the inside, with beautiful shiny gold arrows, and encouraging words in black. I love this new mug so much, I was inspired to make a card to match!

I used the Hello Gorgeous stamp set to create this fun and simple card, with just a few crafting essentials! I had some tough decisions to make while creating these cards, so comment and let me know which is your favorite!
