Floral Cake Sale-A-Bration Crossover

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share a crossover card with you! What makes it a crossover card, you might ask? It combines a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration coordinating product, and a bundle from the Annual Catalog! I think these products work beautifully together, and I’m so excited to share this fun, floral cake card with you!

I knew I wanted to use the Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. This stamp set is gorgeous and perfect for birthdays, Mother’s Day, or just because! I was able to watercolor a piece of Whisper White cardstock with an Aqua Painter and some Pool Party ink before stamping the cake image with my Memento ink pad in Black.

I also stamped a second cake in Memento on a clean piece of Whisper White card stock so that I could color in and cut out the flowers with the coordinating Sale-A-Bration product, Birthday Dies. I love that these dies cut out both the cake and the flowers! It’s a genius way to get double duty from this stamp set! I also cut out some small leaves from a scrap piece of vellum and colored them in using the Soft Sea Foam Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker.

The Bloom & Grow floral image behind this cake was the perfect element to just peek out from behind. I love the greenery sprigs and think it really adds dimension to this cake. I also took the Pool Party Dark Stampin’ Blend marker and traced over the black lines on the cake and pedestal to give the cake a little more definition and shadowing effect. I bunched up some Silver Thread to put behind the cake, and added Rhinestones to the center of the flowers for a little extra bling.

Can you believe that these flowers are colored in with a Pumpkin Pie Light Stampin’ Blend Marker? I think it looks so good! I really didn’t expect the orange to go with the blue and green, but it totally works! I used the Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to lighten up some of the areas of the rose that I thought should have a bit of light on them. Finally I touched up a few of the round greenery leaves with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. Love that bling!

CASEing the Catalog: Facebook Live Replay with Petal Palette

Yay! I got a beautiful box of goodies last night and decided to open it LIVE on my Facebook page. Those that were able to join me live got to see these two gorgeous cards come to life using, you guessed it, the Petal Passion Suite of products straight from the Occasions Catalog! Woo!

The first card we put together was CASE’d and modified slightly. The sample in the catalog showed a square card, but I wanted to make it a standard size, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I was VERY surprised at how beautifully the Lemon Lime Twist stamped on Pool Party cardstock! It turned out BEAUTIFUL!

Using one of the Petal Pairs Embossing Folder on Whisper White cardstock, and tearing the edges adds a little dimension to this beautiful card. I also really liked how the Organza Ribbon looks tucked slightly under the embossed piece. The white embossing on the Basic Black cardstock really POPS and stands out in an elegant way. Not to mention blinging it up a bit with the Petal Passions Embellishment and some Rhinestones!

This isn’t my “typical” color scheme, but I was pleasantly surprised with how it all came together and how much I actually LOVE this beautiful card! I just want to keep making them! I can’t stop! Seriously! I might need assistance…

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Pool Party Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Strip: 2-1/4″ x 5″
Basic Black Circle: 2-3/8″ (Stitched Shapes Framelits)

For the second card, I got to dig into the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and my new Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive along with the Color Lifter! I still have some playing around to do with the Blends, but I really like how the Color Lifter softened the edges of the coloring.

I also used the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes to add some “dew drops” to the flowers. I LOVE the glitter! The Stitched Shapes Framelit circle I used was slightly larger than the one they used in the catalog, but still looks beautiful on this non-standard sized card.

I love how we can cut apart sentiments to create personalized sayings, like the For You on this card. I stamped two different sentiments and cut out the words I wanted to use.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5″ x 6″, score @ 3″
Petal Passion DSP: 3″ x 5″
Whisper White Circle: 2-3/4″ (Stitched Shapes Framelits)
Whisper White Scrap: Approx. 4″ x 4″

Gold Arrows Birthday Card

When I was visiting family over the past weekend, I went into a really fun store and picked up the most GORGEOUS mug! It has a teal-blue color on the handle and on the inside, with beautiful shiny gold arrows, and encouraging words in black. I love this new mug so much, I was inspired to make a card to match!

I used the Hello Gorgeous stamp set to create this fun and simple card, with just a few crafting essentials! I had some tough decisions to make while creating these cards, so comment and let me know which is your favorite!

BONUS VIDEO – Weathered Waterfall

I was so excited to get this video filmed and up I decided to film it TWICE! lol The first video was no good half way through because I was burning a candle next to my camera and it made the image wavy. SOOOO, I wanted to film it again and make sure you had the BEST video experience! This time I plugged in my Copper Scentsy warmer and NO WAVY LINES! 😀

I used the Weather Together stamp set on this AWESOME waterfall card. I LOVE this technique so much and this fun fold is sure to entertain the recipient!

I learned this technique way back and wanted to bring it back with a fun twist by telling a story through pictures. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making!
