2018 August Kre8tors Blog Hop

It’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world share their projects and ideas with you! We have been hard at work on the August hop and are so excited to share this month’s theme: WATER!

That’s right, we are featuring OUR interpretations of the theme, water. It could be in the ocean, a beverage, weather related, or just about anything else that has to do with water. One of my favorite seasonal transitions is from Summer to Fall, and living in the United States in the state Oregon, I love the rain! I can’t wait for it! I know, most people aren’t fans of the rain, but I’m very ready for it! 🙂

The card I decided to make features a fun fish bowl in a mason jar! I wanted to blend two of my favorite sets together, Jar of Love and Sea of Textures. Jar of Love is a classic that has been with us for a little bit now. There are coordinating framelits dies to cut out the fish, jar, and so many more shapes and jar sizes!

I combined this with the brand new Sea of Textures stamp set with coordinating framelits dies, Under the Sea. I used that set to cut out the coral and background foliage. I also stamped the “thanks” from this set.

I love using Window Sheets to get a really fun 3D effect for my “fishbowl”. I stamped directly on the window sheet to make the jar, and then popped up my fish and coral using layered dimensionals. I added a few sequins to finish it off and hide the dimensionals. I love how it turned out! What do you think? Check out the video below for more details on how this came together!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Window Sheet: Approximately 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″
Whisper White Scraps for fish and coral
Tropical Escape DSP Scraps for foliage

What Was That Wednesday – Jar of Love Bouquet

For today’s What Was That Wednesday, we are reminiscing with an annual catalog fav, Jar of Love! This Jar of Love bouquet card is so sweet, so easy, and so pretty! I originally posted it in June 2016 and it has been one of my most watched videos on YouTube.

Don’t mind my stumbling over my words and the length of the video, I think I’ve improved a bit. 😉

This beautiful card features some of the 2016-2018 In Colors like Peekaboo Peach & Flirty Flamingo. I love how the linen thread looks around the tiny mason jar on this card, too. Be sure to give this video another glance if you haven’t already checked it out!

Measurements:

Peekaboo Peach Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Scrap: Approx. 4″ x 5″

This card was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest from Lynn Dunn. I loved her idea so much, I had to recreate my own version using Jar of Love. To see some of my other projects using this stamp set, you can check out this link, or this one, or even this one here!

I’m so excited for the products in the brand new Occasions 2018 Catalog, especially this gorgeous Silver Baker’s Twine I’ve added behind the Stitched Shapes Circle. I can never get enough metallic bling on my cards! I hope you enjoy this beautiful card! I sure did have a blast making it!

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 13 – Jar of Love Flower Circle

This Flower Circle card is so much fun to make! There are a lot of beautiful colors that compliment each other surrounding a simple sentiment. I love Jar of Love for this card because you can fit large and small stamps snug all around the circle to really make the shadow of it pop. Jar of Love can do so many things! From Mason Jar bouquets, and Fireflies, to adorable little Fish, this set can do a little of everything.

Step it up a notch with a stitched shape circle framelit and some pearls. Either way, flat or stepped up, this card is super cute and really fun to make! What other stamp sets can you think of that would look great with this style card?

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″

Love Card

To those that watched my Mystery Card video, I’ve taken some of your suggestions and implemented them in this new card, which would be a perfect card for that special someone in your life.

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Rectangle 1: 1-1/4″ x 2″
