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!

Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 2

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Part 2 of our Sale-A-Bration series using the Honey Bee Bundle from the 2020 Mini Catalog along with the coordinating Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper! There are so many projects you can make using these products together! Here’s another one I CASE’d from the Sale-A-Bration Flyer! This is a small gift card holder that perfectly fits an Amazon, or any type, gift card.

This bundle is perfect for a variety of cards and projects, and coordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I am CASEing the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Flyer, and creating three projects for you that use this set along with that FREE paper! So be sure you follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and find me on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

I substituted a FREE SAB product, the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins, for the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon as I don’t have any of that beautiful stuff quite yet… but 3 spools are on their way to me! If you were to purchase the Honey Bee Bundle, one spool of that Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you would qualify to get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! For more details, visit my online store.

There are also amazing perks for hosting a party (virtual) or joining my team. I would love to talk to you about the benefits of each option, and what extra goodies you get during SAB!

For now, let’s take a peek at what you need to make this awesome gift card holder! Check out my video tutorial below, and please let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

I can’t wait to ‘Sale-A-Brate’ every moment with you!

Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 1 and Kre8tors Blog Hop Mini Catalog

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration! Now, onto a very beautiful and special project using the Honey Bee Bundle and some GORGEOUS Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!

I CASE’d this project from page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. I have already CASE’d one of them in a previous post, and will be CASE-ing the other in an upcoming post. I wanted to share this card with you because it uses some of the amazing gold foil papers from the Golden Honey Speciality DSP. When I first saw this paper, I knew I HAD to have it! There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it! And you bet I will be spending additional SAB rewards I earn on MORE!

This was a simple card to make, but it offers SO much! The stunning black background with the pops of Coastal Cabana… the delicate gold foil bee under the simple and small ‘Hello’ sentiment… the subtle hint of Coastal Cabana in the honeycomb under the gold bee… this card is packed full of beautiful details!

The best part about this paper? It’s absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase! Just $50 in product will earn you a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. So that means if you purchased the Honey Bee Bundle, that gorgeous Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you can get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! Ask your demonstrator for details, or if you don’t have a demonstrator or are new to Stampin’ Up! go ahead and send me a message! I’d love to help you out!

The best part about CASE-ing the catalogs and flyers is that on some pages, Stampin’ Up! tells you exactly what you need to create these projects. On page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer, they give you a list of products you will need to create three beautiful projects. I followed that list to create this card, however I wasn’t able to get my hands on the beautiful Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon when I made this card, so I substituted for the Metallic Baker’s Twine that came in the Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack, which is also a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Check out my video tutorial below to find out how this beautiful card came together. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great tutorials!

Honey Bee Bundle Tufted and Stitched Card

Hello Kre8tors! Are you getting tired of bees yet? I certainly am NOT! This bundle has so much to offer with a HUGE variety of design possibilities! However, I do have some brand new sets on the way, so don’t worry, there will be lots of other projects coming soon! Be sure to follow my blog, and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss a thing!

This card features an oldie but goodie, the Tufted Embossing Folder! This soft, pillowy background is perfect for the “stitched” design of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP that I’ve cut out using the largest Stitched Circle Die.

The best part about this designer series paper (aside from the gold foil inlays?)… it’s a FREE item with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can earn Sale-A-Bration items for FREE right now! Head over to my online store for more details!

The bold, dark bee stamped on vellum in Stazon Jet Black ink really makes a statement on this card. It pairs so well with the soft colors of Crushed Curry and Balmy Blue. I also love the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy. I’m having fun pairing two colors, one from each end of the spectrum (one dark and one light blue) plus a complimentary color such as yellow. I think the color palette just works together!

The other stamps and die cuts in this bundle are perfect to create a plethora of projects! Did you see my Shaker Card post? BEE sure to go and check that one out, you don’t want to miss out! I’ve already made tons of cards using this set. You can check them out in my Mini Catalog Playlist on my YouTube channel!

I also dotted a few of those beautiful sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo pack. Did you know that you can get those for FREE with a qualifying purchase? That’s right, during Sale-A-Bration they are FREE when you spend $50. Check them out in the materials section below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Scraps: Approx. 4″ x 5″
Vellum Scrap: Approx. 3″ x 3″
Golden Honey Specialty DSP: Approx. 4″ x 4″
