ICS Blog Hop Beautiful Bundles

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today and we have some very fun bundles to share with you! 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’ve decided to showcase the Sailing Home Bundle today, along with a few extra bits from the suite of products that coordinate beautifully. I’ve scoured Pinterest for some layout inspiration and came across Heather Klump’s beautiful project which you can see here. My layout is almost identical to Heather’s, but she used an older Stampin’ Up! set for her focal pieces.

I rarely make square cards, or any card that isn’t the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, but this one really stood out to me. I loved the tile look and the floating accents in the foreground. It was a lot of fun to put together and not as time consuming as I thought it might be.

And I absolutely love the Sail Away Trinkets! They just add a pop of shine. I did color mine with an Old Olive Dark Stampin’ Blend alcohol based marker, but it would look beautiful heat embossed in some copper or gold embossing powder as well.

Check out my video tutorial below to see exactly how this card came together, and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more video tutorials!

July ICS Blog Hop Punch Me Out

Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop! Today we are sharing projects using punches, so I’ve decided to use a few classics from the Annual Catalog. CIRCLES! I’ve used three different circle punches on today’s card and I really love how it turned out!

It’s very similar to the Tunnel Card I made earlier, however on a much smaller scale with not quite as much dimension. Some people call this a porthole as well, like the windows on a ship. What would you call it? Let me know in the comments below!

I really love how soft the Champagne Foil is on this card. It is a beautiful color! It’s very soft, and elegant I think. Silver and Gold are beautiful and have their place, but there’s just something about this Champagne that says “I’m here and I brought the Bubbly, er, MYSELF!”

I accented the 1/2″ Champagne circles with two of the dies from the Detailed Peacocks Dies. I love these little branch dudes. They are so pretty! And I especially love the Champagne foil paired with the Basic Gray. It really makes a lovely combination.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Basic Gray Mat: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
Whisper White Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scraps

ICS Blog Hop – I believe in a thing called love

Welcome to this month’s Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world sharing beautiful projects with you. This month’s theme is “It’s a Love Thing” so I’m going to share a Valentine’s Day card with you!

I’ve used the Meant to Be Bundle for my project today. The bundle includes both the Meant To Be Cling Mount Stamps as well as the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. Purchasing the bundle saves you 10% and is a great value! I paired this set with the Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, and Crumb Cake colors from Stampin’ Up! I absolutely love how Stampin’ Up! can perfectly coordinate their products so that you know everything will match.

The Heart Epoxy Droplets are perfect for covering up glue dots, and for adding fun embellishments in any color to your projects. I’ve used one of our Stampin’ Blends Markers, which is alcohol based, to color in the Heart Epoxy Droplet.

I love how the smaller hearts can be built up in different layers. I used a combination of Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to get varying heights. I’m so pleased with how this card turned out, and it was a favorite at my Galentine’s Day card making class I taught on February 2nd. Be sure to check out one of the other cards we made using this bundle along with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It’s super shiny with the Heart of Gold!

Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop with Lots of Lavender

I am so excited to be part of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop this month! It’s my first month in this hop, and I am surrounded by so many wonderfully talented ladies. This month’s theme was The Sale-A-Bration Continues, with a color challenge! We were challenged to only use colors from this color palette:

I chose to use the set Lots of Lavender, and I added an additional challenge for myself, to make this card masculine! I think it turned out pretty well, what do you think?

I love how the Linen Thread adds a fun accent behind the sentiment. I used Thoughtful Banners for my Happy Father’s Day sentiment, but there are so many great projects you can do with just the Lots of Lavender set!

I also love how the lavender bunch is a 2-Step Stamp, with the main outline and accompanying solid bow, leaves, and stem. I have a special trick for stamping the leaves and stem at the same time that you can see in my video below.

Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post and click the Next button to continue this awesome hop! There are so many wonderful projects to see from the members of the ICS Blog Hop!

Remember, during Sale-A-Bration you earn FREE rewards just for shopping! Every $50 spent earns one free Level 1 reward. Spend $100 and choose TWO free Level 1 rewards or one free Level 2 reward. There’s no limit to how many FREE items you can earn!

Night of Navy Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
