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!

February ICS Blog Hop Thinking of You with Honey Bees

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! 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!

Today’s card features the adorable Honey Bee Bundle, yet again! I just can’t get enough of these beautiful little bees! I’m taking a scrap of Whisper White that I had previously cut out some of the images from the Detailed Bees Die Cuts and putting it to work. I was excited at the idea of using this ‘used’ piece of cardstock and turning it into a card.

If you have a piece of “trash” like a cut-out scrap that was partially used for another project, take a before and after photo and use the hashtag #trashtotreasurekre8tions and I will pick a few to feature on my Instagram!

I stamped my sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, and then took the larger solid bee die cut and cut it out. It fits perfectly in this little die cut. I layered that on top of the honeycomb cut out, inset with some Daffodil Delight hexagons from the honeycomb die cut. I also added a piece of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon. Love this ribbon!

I used the FREE Sale-A-Bration item, Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack to put these beautiful teal colored sequins in the shaker portion of this card. I used them in the Hive as well as behind the detailed gold bee die cut. I love the contrast of the teal against the Daffodil Delight.

 

This gold detail bee die cut is absolutely stunning! The wings have incredible detail. I can just see a swarm of these covering a card and looking breathtaking. If you get really ambitious, you can even cut this out from two contrasting colors of card stock and inlay the pieces from one into the other. That would be a master level jigsaw puzzle for sure!

I had also previously stamped and colored in this little bee. I stamped it with Stazon ink and colored it in using the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker from the Brights collection. I inset him behind the cutout on my ‘used’ card mat. I love the look of inset versus popped up sometimes. I think it’s a nice little change. It reminds me of the game Operation. Do you remember that game?

I really love how this fun little shaker card turned out. It’s so bright and cheerful! I really hope you give this one a try. I love that the sequins are behind the detailed bee and the hive. It’s like a two-in-one shaker! The trick is to keep your compartments contained where you want the shaker parts to be placed. The Foam Adhesive Strips are perfect for that job!

I really hope you enjoyed my project for today’s blog hop! Here’s my video tutorial detailing how this card came together.

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!

Honey Bee Bundle Hive Card

Hello Kre8tors! Just a few more Honey Bee projects to inspire you before I jump into some other amazing Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration projects. Be sure to follow my blog, and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss a thing!

This card was CASE’d and tweaked slightly from the 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s so beautiful and soft with the So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam color palette. The Very Vanilla card stock lends to these tones beautifully as well. I especially love the little hive die cut on top of the bee hive.

The bee and flowers were stamped with a fun technique using the Stamparatus that will allow you to stamp lots of small die cut pieces quickly, using a precut template. Check out my video tutorial below to see how I did it!

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 scattered some of those Frosted Epoxy Droplets around the card for a little more dimension and interest. I really love these embellishments, they really make a big impact on a little card.

Measurements:

Soft Sea Foam Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Very Vanilla Bottom Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Very Vanilla Top Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″

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!
