Peaceful Poppies Thank You Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Thank you cards are always needed. Someone gives you a gift, someone does you a kindness, or maybe you want to give them as a gift to someone else who would appreciate the work and love you put into your kre8tions. I hope you find these thank you cards inspiring and give them a try!

The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle makes this card super simple. I used a standard Whisper White card base, and then stamped the splatter images from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and cut it out on my die cutting machine using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies.

The poppy accent is from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. So easy to just pop it out of the pre-cut thick card stock sheet and adhere it with a glue dot. There’s also vellum and watercolor pieces with the elements that can really elevate your card game.

Probably one of my favorite items in the Suite Bundle would have to be the Peaceful Poppies Sequins. There are a variety of shapes and colors, and they add the perfect bling to the project. I always like to add them in batches of 3 or 5, and adhere them using some Liquid Glue along with the Take Your Pick tool. It’s super helpful when trying to pick up those tiny sequins!

The black swirl accent in the background is so much fun and reminds me so much of the Swirly Bird set. It adds just the right background element on this card. I stamped the sentiment using StazOn ink in Jet Black. I love how crisp and clean this card design looks.

I really hope you enjoyed this card design. I would love to see you case it! Just tag me on social media. You can find me just about everywhere with @mkre8tions

Mountain Air Bundle Birthday Sunset

Hello Kre8tors! Thanks so much for coming back! And if you’re new here, welcome! I’m glad you found your way to my blog. Today I’m sharing a birthday card I made for my brother using the Mountain Air Bundle.

I knew as soon as I saw this card I was going to make it for my brother’s birthday. I thought a sunset would look so beautiful behind those mountains! I cut them out from Basic Black card stock to give the illusion of a silhouette.

I cut four trees from Basic Black card stock as well, two of the detailed trees and two of the smaller solid trees. I thought those could represent the four members of his family. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using the Label Me Bold stamp set and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Powder on a scrap of black cardstock. This really made it stand out nicely!

I used the masking technique for the sun to get it bright white in the background. I love this technique, and using a sticky note makes it super easy!

Be sure you take a look at my video tutorial to see how this card came together, and the creative process of me struggling to find just the right placement for all these pieces!

Stamper’s Showcase All You Need is Love

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m Melissa Tennison and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Oregon, USA. We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase 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!

The projects I’m sharing with you today are a couple of masculine cards featuring brayer colored hearts and silver heat embossing. I have never played with brayers before, but after making these brayer colored hearts, I think I’m in love!

For the first card, I put down a silver foil mat, then cut out a heart using the Be Mine Stitched Dies. I also brayer colored a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Pretty Peacock and Mango Melody. Then I cut some smaller hearts out of that.

I heat embossed my sentiment in silver embossing powder on a piece of vellum. Behind the vellum is a small strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to accentuate the sentiment.

I had quite a few pieces left over, so I decided to make a second card. For the large heart, I used the die cut from the previous card and heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder.

Then I used the leftover brayer colored hearts and staggered them using dimensionals and glue dots. I love how these colored hearts turned out! Have you used a brayer before? I highly recommend you give it a try! It’s so much fun seeing the colors roll and blend. Take a peek at my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Card Bases: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Silver Foil and Pretty Peacock Mats: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat for Card 1: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Pretty Peacock Strip for Card 1: 1-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
Vellum Strip for Card 1: 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Scrap Whisper White for Hearts

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!

June Kre8tors Blog Hop Dads & Grads

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you are joining us for this Dads & Grads themed hop! Be sure to scroll down to the Roll Call List to hop along to the next demonstrator for some wonderful inspiration!

I am SUPER excited about my project today because it’s colorful, fun, and DIFFERENT from anything I’ve done! The bundle I’ve used is called Sailing Home and includes the cling mount stamp set along with the Smooth Sailing dies. This sea-worthy set was the first item I purchased from our new annual catalog, and I’m so glad because it’s been amazing!

I tried to replicate the sailor’s knot in the stamp set on the front of my card for a little added something. This is a very special card for a very special man in my life; my father. He’s been my true North, for sure! Teaching me right and wrong, showing me how to be independent and strong.

He is also a fan of tie-dye, so I thought the vibrant and colorful background was perfect for him. This card features a technique that I haven’t used before. I’m not sure if it has an official name, but let’s just call this the Partial Die Cutting technique.
