Painted Poppies DSP Striped Cards

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share with you TWO cards using the Peaceful Poppies Suite of products! This suite is my FAVORITE from the new 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s packed full of amazing goodies! Have you purchased yours yet? I hope you do, because I don’t want you to miss out!

This first card was inspired by a post from Kimberly Wiener on Pinterest. I loved how hers looked and knew this stamp set would be perfect to CASE her card! I stamped my own DSP and colored them in by hand. This took a long time, but I think it was worth it in the end!

The star of the show on this card are the beautiful poppy stamps from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I used some Stampin’ Blends to color them, and adore how they turned out! They are so vibrant!

I also accented this card with some of those adorable Peaceful Poppies Sequins. Did you know that some of the sequins are flower shaped? They’re too fun and would make amazing shaker cards!

I used the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. This font is beautiful on these cards. I love it when lots of products coordinate together, just like every product in the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle!

This is a BONUS card, and an alternative to the lengthy coloring session that is needed for Card #1. This card features some of the Peaceful Poppies DSP, so it goes together much quicker!

I also used one of the die cut pieces from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. They were perfect with the piece of DSP I chose to use, and you can even color over them with the Stampin’ Blends! I added a little bow using the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon from this suite.

And of course, any poppies card wouldn’t be complete without those adorable flower shaped sequins that come in the Peaceful Poppies Sequins! I chose three different colors. What colors would you have used?

Again, the sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Bundle. I just love how the two fonts on this sentiment compliment each other. This is going to make a lovely birthday card for someone special.

Don’t forget, right now during SAB there are so many ways to earn FREE product! You can either Shop, Host, or Join! I’d love to talk to you more about any of these amazing opportunities, just send me a message or click the images below!

Peaceful Poppies Speckled Card

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back for another poppies card! I am really in love with this one, and think the colors are so vibrant, they just POP! I hope you enjoy this card, and CASE it! (Copy and Share Everything). If you do CASE it, please share it on social media and tag me using @mkre8tions, I would love to give you a shoutout on my social media for CASEing my design.

I’ve used several of the products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite, which can be purchased in a Suite Bundle to save you time from having to enter ALL the item numbers in separately on an order. Keep scrolling for more info on that!

I started with a standard Whisper White card base, and then stamped some of the splatter images onto the base. I cut out a large poppy from one of the sheets in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper pack. This poppy is so vibrant and full of beautiful colors! I loved how it popped against the white.

Using the coordinating dies, I cut out the accent piece from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock. I also stamped the largest poppy from the Painted Poppies stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White, then speckled on some color using an Aqua Painter and a flicking motion. I also added a couple of the vellum leaf cut outs from the Peaceful Poppies Elements.

I dotted some of our liquid glue around the card and speckled on some of those gorgeous Peaceful Poppies sequins for a little bling! I adore all of the products in this suite, they are all so much fun to play with! Have you picked up yours yet? I’d love to give you even more inspiration when you do!

The last few finishing touches were to add some of that beautiful Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I cut a small piece and then folded it in half to look like the bottom of a banner ribbon, and adhered it using some mini glue dots. I love how the ribbon adds a little extra to this card.

Don’t forget, right now during SAB there are so many ways to earn FREE product! You can either Shop, Host, or Join! I’d love to talk to you more about any of these amazing opportunities, just send me a message or click the images below!

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.

Split Coloring Technique REDO with the Stamparatus

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back, so good to see you again! Today’s video is a remake of one of my earlier cards, the Split Coloring Technique. When I originally made this card, I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the placement on the colored in card stock and the base card stock. I received a request from Kay Capps to show how to make this card using the Stamparatus. I thought that was a brilliant idea, so here it is! Thanks for the suggestion, Kay!

I knew I wanted to use the beautiful Poppy Parade as my base color this time because I just so happen to have the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend markers which make coloring in so easy and fun! I paired that with Old Olive, which is a beautiful green that compliments just about any color.

Positioning the stamps was really easy, and fit beautifully together with the images from Petal Palette. I adore this set, and am so pleased with how well it works with this technique on the Stamparatus! I’m eager to make more of these cards, and play around with different placements.

Be sure to take a peek at my video tutorial, which shows you just how I achieved the look on this beautiful card. This video is slightly different from my others in the way I narrated my actions with a voice over. If you decide to watch it, let me know what you thought!

Measurements:

Poppy Parade Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, cut after coloring

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!
