Seeing Hearts with the Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! If you haven’t been to our hop before, you’re in for a treat! We have 27 Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from all over the world collaborating to bring you some wonderful Valentines and Love themed projects. Be sure to read through each, leave a comment, and click the Next Button to hop around to everyone’s post, you really don’t want to miss out!

I first saw this adorable Triangle Treat Box from Beth McCullough over at Stamping Mom. They were so adorable, I had to CASE it, and add my own personal touch. The base is exactly the same as hers, except I added an embossing folder to mine. The embellishments on the front are my own design, and I really love how they turned out!

I used these as party favors at my Galentine’s Day card making class at the beginning of February. We made five Valentine’s Day cards, some of which you can see in my previous posts: Tufted Heart of Gold and I Believe in a Thing Called Love.

These really were fun to make, and I couldn’t stop! I think I made about 10 of them. They are addicting! They are also the first 3D project I’ve made in a long time! I’ve been making so many cards lately, it was really nice to get out of the card comfort zone and do something different. Do you prefer 3D projects or cards? Let me know in the comments!

Beth’s directions were super easy to follow, and she gave lots of great tips on how to construct this box. I’ve included what I learned in my video tutorial below. The Meant To Be Bundle really adds a special Valentine’s touch to the embellishments on this treat box. You can save 10% by purchasing the Meant To Be Stamp Set and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies together in the Bundle.

Kre8tors Blog Hop Sympathy Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to my blog. Today is a special edition because it’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the globe get together to inspire you with beautiful projects! This month’s theme is Sympathy. I have experienced quite a few losses in the month of September, so I thought I would honor those people in my own way, by using my creativity to inspire and share with others.

For my Sympathy card, I decided to use Flourishing Phrases, a classic in the Annual Catalog. It is such a versatile set and so beautiful for a card like this. I wanted to use Gray Granite and Mint Macaron, and think this combination is beautiful with this stamp set.

I love using our Whisper White ribbons and baker’s twine because I can dye it any color I need with our ink! I used that technique on this card to match my ribbon with the Mint Macaron. I also used some of the gorgeous basic adhesive backed sequins to add a little bling. Check out my video tutorial below, and don’t forget to hop along to the other demonstrator’s blogs and see their beautiful, heartfelt projects.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Scrap of cardstock for circle template


Materials:

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

March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop with Amazing You

It’s that time again, time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Yay! This month’s theme is Birthdays and I think this project is a PERFECT birthday card/gift because it holds a GIFT CARD! And bonus, it’s a fun fold card with a Double Slider! Woot! I’m so excited to be hopping once again with so many talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! Be sure to click the Next button at the bottom of this blog post to hop along!

I knew I wanted to use two Sale-A-Bration sets on this card, Lots of Lavender and of course Amazing You (for the Birthday portion of the card.) I also knew I wanted to make a Double Slider card. The last one I made was SO long ago, I needed to find some newer dimensions. So I took to YouTube and found Julie Davison’s tutorial. I used her dimensions, and made a few of my own alterations to turn this into a gift card holder.

I made two different color versions. The one featured in my coordinating YouTube tutorial features Berry Burst and Smoky Slate. I LOVE this color combination so much! I also threw in a few pops of Old Olive for the leaves and one of the glitter enamel dots.

The Let’s Celebrate and Amazing You sentiments came from the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and the floral images on the front of the card came from the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I’m so happy with how these cards turned out! What color is your favorite? Don’t forget to pick up these Sale-A-Bration stamps for FREE with a qualifying purchase before they retire! March 31st, or while supplies last!

Measurements:

Smoky Slate Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″, & 8-1/4″
Berry Burst Bases (x3): 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Whisper White Mats (x2): 2-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
Fresh Florals DSP: 4″ x 6″
Berry Burst Scrap: 1″ x 2-1/2″

February 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop with Lots of Lavender

Welcome to the February 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! This is our second hop, and I’m so excited to continue working with so many talented demonstrators in sharing our passion for paper crafting! If you’d like to check out our first blog hop, you can start at 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop – Occasions Petal Palette. Be sure to click the Next button at the bottom of this post to hop over to Amy’s blog to check out her fantastic project! In case you get lost along the hop, there is also a Roll Call list below the Next button.

For my Sale-A-Bration item I decided to use the Lots of Lavender stamp set. This is a GORGEOUS set and it’s really versatile. I’ve used this set on my Clean & Quick Card and thought it came out beautifully, but wanted to step it up a little. So this card was born!

I love how clean this card looks with just two main colors and a pop of an accent color. I used Rich Razzleberry for most of the coloring as well as my accent pieces and cardbase. Lemon Lime Twist was used to color in the leaves and stem. I did use just a touch of the Powder Pink in the ribbon holding the lavender bunch together. Oh, and we can’t forget the Clear Wink of Stella to give it the slightest shimmer.

The Stampin’ Blends are so much fun to color with! I used both the light and dark Rich Razzleberry markers to color in the petals on my lavender bunch. I decided to keep the petals full color and not use the Color Lifter to blend it out. I really like how crisp this looks against the white accents on the card. I also used some beautiful Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White to lace behind the lavender bunch.

Since the Lots of Lavender stamp set doesn’t come with any sentiments, I opted to use the Petal Palette Bundle to add the finishing touches to the card. I used both the label framelit and trellis thinlit to spruce up my sentiment at the bottom of the card. This paired with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits, I thought the card really came together well. I also added a little more pops of green for contrast with the Glitter Enamel Dots. LOVE the bling!

This project was so fun to put together! I hope you enjoy the video tutorial towards the bottom of this post to see how it all came together.
