ICS Blog Hop Fabulous Fall

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today! The theme this month is Fabulous Fall and I am BEYOND EXCITED about this one! I love everything Fall! Colder weather, cozy snuggles, glowing candles, warm beverages… Ahhh! So much YES! Join us as we celebrate my favorite season with some beautiful Fall inspired projects!

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 decided to take a Christmas set and turn it into my Fall inspiration for this blog hop. I used the Tidings All Around bundle from the brand new Holiday Catalog (which is live TODAY!) with some of our brand new In Colors to create this wonderful wreath.

The sentiment “I am thankful for you” came from a classic set, Painted Harvest, which is available in the Annual Catalog. It’s a beautiful set, one which I almost used for this month’s project, but I opted to challenge myself and see how I could turn a Christmas stamp set into a Fall project.

The wreath was cut from some Pretty Peacock cardstock, and the branch and “wheat” top accents are done with Early Espresso and Terracotta Tile. I really love the punch of rusty-orange the Terracotta Tile lends to this project. I think it really ties together the colors and screams Fall!

I’m so THANKFUL that you stopped by to see my project today! Don’t forget to hop along to Audra’s blog to see what exciting project she has created for you! Click the Next button below!

August 2019 Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Holiday Catalog

 

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! 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!

This month we are sharing Holiday Catalog projects! The new catalog will be available for customers to order from on September 4, so we hope you enjoy all of this cheerful inspiration to fuel your wish list! I decided to pre-order the Toile Tidings Suite Bundle, which came with not one, but TWO stamp sets with coordinating dies, two rolls of Ribbon, one pack of DSP, one pack of Gift Wrap, and some Glitter Enamel Dots. This bundle of products is perfect for coordinating multiple projects as well as all of your holiday cards!

I just love the cardinal, and wanted to make sure my first project was with him. I absolutely ADORE this bird, and think he came out really well. I watercolored the branch he sits upon, and a little bit of him as well. You can check out how I put this all together in my video tutorial below.

I CASE’d (Copy And Share Everything) the catalog to make this card, and so glad I did because I learned a lot about how to best use these products and what tricks I can use on my future cards. The bow turned out beautiful! There are so many different bow tying methods, but this one is my favorite. I show you how I achieve this bow in my video tutorial.

Winter Woods Wreath Card & Holiday Catalog Showcase

Hello my lovely Kre8tors! I’m super excited for today’s post, because it’s ALL about that HOLIDAY CATALOG! YAY! It’s finally live to customers! Demonstrators have been able to pre-order for the last month, but YOU, my lovlies, are able to get your hands on these products right now!

Download a copy of the Holiday Catalog on my Catalogs page!
Or just head straight to my online store to shop right now!

Over in my VIP Stamp Lounge on Facebook for my customers and team members, I went live to show off the beautiful Holiday Catalog, and we made this adorable wreath card from the Winter Woods Bundle, CASE’d straight from the Holiday Catalog. I love how it turned out, and can’t wait to make more!

I’d love to have you join us in my VIP Facebook group! All of my customers and team members are invited to join and participate in card challenges, live videos, sneak peeks, and more!

This video was soooo long, I had to break it into two parts! Part 1 is the Holiday Catalog Showcase where we walk through each page together, and I point out some very handy tips!

Part 2 is all about that Winter Woods Bundle! Watch me CASE the Holiday Catalog and make a beautiful wreath card using the small pine boughs from this set. I had to get creative, as I didn’t have all the same supplies that were used, but that’s half the fun!

Holiday Catalog Preview with the Ink & Share Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Ink & Share Blog Hop, where a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the globe come together to share loads of inspiration with you! Today is all about the Holiday Catalog, which launches for customers on September 5. Be sure to scroll down to the Next button and hop along to the other talented demonstrators participating, you won’t want to miss out!
I am so excited to share my project with you, so let’s dive in!

The first bundle I knew I had to get from the Holiday Catalog was Winter Woods. I am all about that #treelife living in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, USA). Trees just call to me, and this set practically begged me to bring it home! I knew I wanted to CASE the catalog and I did just that!

I sponge daubed the tree in Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover for a variegated effect. I used some beautiful vellum for accent trees, and linen thread for the bow. I love how it turned out! If you want to see some behind the scenes on how this card was made, check out the video below!

Don’t forget about Bonus Days! Every $50 you spend in August, before shipping and tax, you earn a $5 coupon redeemable in September! That’s 10% cash back! Grab some of the supplies that I used on this card now, and you can use your Bonus Days coupon next month towards the Winter Woods bundle!

Measurements:

Blueberry Bushel Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
DSP Accent: 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Scrap Whisper White for Tree
Vellum: Approximately 3-3/4″ x 5″
