ICS Blog Hop Fabulous Fall

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today! The theme this month is Fabulous Fall and I am BEYOND EXCITED about this one! I love everything Fall! Colder weather, cozy snuggles, glowing candles, warm beverages… Ahhh! So much YES! Join us as we celebrate my favorite season with some beautiful Fall inspired projects!

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 decided to take a Christmas set and turn it into my Fall inspiration for this blog hop. I used the Tidings All Around bundle from the brand new Holiday Catalog (which is live TODAY!) with some of our brand new In Colors to create this wonderful wreath.

The sentiment “I am thankful for you” came from a classic set, Painted Harvest, which is available in the Annual Catalog. It’s a beautiful set, one which I almost used for this month’s project, but I opted to challenge myself and see how I could turn a Christmas stamp set into a Fall project.

The wreath was cut from some Pretty Peacock cardstock, and the branch and “wheat” top accents are done with Early Espresso and Terracotta Tile. I really love the punch of rusty-orange the Terracotta Tile lends to this project. I think it really ties together the colors and screams Fall!

I’m so THANKFUL that you stopped by to see my project today! Don’t forget to hop along to Audra’s blog to see what exciting project she has created for you! Click the Next button below!

Passion for Punches ICS Blog Hop

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to another fun project! Today we are hopping with the ICS Blog Hop, a group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe. This month’s theme is Passion for Punches, so I decided to make a beautiful Fall Wreath card using the Leaf Punch that coordinates with the stamp set, Painted Harvest.

I have been ready for fall since Spring started! I am definitely a Fall baby, and love everything about the season. I’m so excited for the smell of the Bath & Body Works candle, Leaves. I’m excited for Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING! I’m excited about the cool days when the sun is still shining, otherwise known as sweater weather. So, to reflect my amazing mood right now, I wanted to share some bright, vibrant Fall colors on this gorgeous Fall Wreath card.

The sentiment I used was from Rooted in Nature and I love every, little, thing about this set! First of all, it comes in a BUNDLE with the stamp set AND the framelits, so you can save 10%!!! Second, this stamp set has not one, but TWO cases full of beautiful, nature inspired stamps. I really love it when a stamp set has both beautiful images as well as coordinating sentiments and sayings.

I also am so in love with a stamp set that coordinates beautifully with OTHER sets! Rooted in Nature pairs really well with Painted Harvest, the set I used when creating the focal point of my card. Combining old classics with new favorites is a huge benefit! If you want to see how I put this beautiful wreath together using the “paper gasket” method, click on the video link below!

Ink & Share Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to the first Ink & Share Blog Hop! The theme for the first month of this hop is Sale-A-Bration! That’s right, you are about to view SO many wonderful ideas on ways to use these amazing stamp sets and products that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase. I’ll be showing you the adorable Party Pandas paired with an annual catalog favorite, Painted Harvest. Be sure to scroll all the way down and click on the Next button to keep on hopping! Now, let’s head into the jungle!

My panda is having so much fun hanging out behind the ferns and leaves in the jungle! I saw a similar card on Pinterest using a different stamp set, and knew I had everything I needed to CASE it with Stampin’ Up! products. I am SO happy with how it turned out! If you can’t get enough of this panda, check out my
Frame Card using the Party Pandas stamp set.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, and Bermuda Bay to color my leaves using the sponging technique. I inked up my stamp in one color, and then sponged the other two colors on the stamp to get the ombre colored effect. This card was so much fun to make!

And this panda from the Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration set is just TOO cute hanging out in the jungle scene. The panda holding a balloon from the set was the perfect stamp to use on this jungle card. And the best part is you can earn the Party Pandas stamp set for FREE when you place a qualifying order!

Painted Harvest Double-Z Fold

This is a take on a classic favorite, using the new Painted Harvest suite of products! I love how the sunflower adds a pop of color to this beautiful card!

The Double-Z Fold card is so versatile and this template can be used with virtually any stamp set with a featured image and sentiment. The Happy Birthday Thinlit is a fun additional to the front of this card.

Zipper Pull Gift Card Surprise!

AHHH! I’m SOOO excited about this amazing Zipper Pull card! It’s so clever and I have to give props to my fellow demos for having such amazing engineering minds to come up with this! All you need are a few dies to make this card come to life when you “unzip” it!

I originally saw this on Stampin’ Up!’s Facebook Demonstrator group and dropped everything I was doing to make my own. I can’t tell you how clever my fellow demonstrators are and I’m so excited I get to share in that creativity with them!

I hope you enjoy this fun project and I’d love to see what you come up with next! Join me over on Facebook to share your kre8tions!
