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.

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.

Happy Wishes SAB Card

The Sale-A-Bration set Happy Wishes is making its debut in my collection on this beautiful card! I’ve used some delicious Watercolor Paper with an Aqua Painter and three main colors; Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, and Powder Pink. Adorned with gold accents of glimmer paper and foil sheets, this is one luscious card! I can’t wait to show you how this card came together!

I submitted this card for two different color challenges. Both challenges had the same color scheme, and I’m so excited with how it turned out! The first challenge is from TGIF Challenges and is a color challenge that required participants to use Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, and Powder Pink. I used all of these colors on the watercolor paper, and also brought out the Sweet Sugarplum more with a mat and my main stamped image. Check their challenge out by clicking the icon below.

I also decided to add bits of gold. And by bits I mean LOADS! I love how sparkly and shiny this card is with the added Gold Glimmer Paper, Gold Foil Sheets, Gold Vinyl Stickers, and Gold Sequin Trim.

And adding the gold accents was PERFECT for the next challenge from Sunday Stamps. They also had a color challenge and gave us a palette of beautiful swatches to work from. To visit them, click on the image below! There are some amazing projects to inspire your creativity!

I really think this card is one of my new favorites! It has a little bit of everything, especially that BLING! I want to give a HUGE thank you to one of my downlines, Ma, for making this card possible with her generous gift of the Happy Wishes stamp set! Thank you, Ma! ❤

I used a fun technique with the Stampin’ Write Markers to get the splotches on the background. See the video below for details. You can get this Sale-A-Bration set for FREE with a qualifying purchase! This set is part of Stampin’ Up!’s brand new Level 2 Sale-A-Bration rewards! Learn more by clicking HERE.

Delicate Daisy Delight Card

Can we just talk about this card for a second? I’m in LOVE with it! Daisy Delight has always been one of my favorite sets, but it wasn’t until I REALLY started to play around with it that I realized just how much use I would get out of it.

This card features Powder Pink with Basic Gray and that color combination is really grabbing my attention! Not to mention sprucing it up with some BRAND NEW products from the Occasions 2018 catalog! I’ve added the beautiful Silver Baker’s Twine behind the sentiment for a little extra bling.

Background Bits Card

I love the Background Bits stamp set with this beautiful little flower. Coloring rubber stamps with our Stampin’ Write Markers gives a very beautiful effect to stamping. I’ve also used our Whisper White Craft ink paired with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to create a statement that really POPS against the Basic Black cardstock. The pearls are a nice touch that really turns this card into an elegant creation.

Rose Gold Happy Birthday Card – NO STAMPING

I am ALL about that Rose Gold, baby! I love it! My computer, my phone case, my tablet, my accessory pouch, even my highlighter… if something comes in Rose Gold, I’m all about that! So, I made my take on a Rose Gold Birthday Card using our Happy Birthday Thinlits Die, some gold foil, and Powder Pink cardstock.

One of the great things about this card, NO STAMPING! That’s right, there are absolutely no stamps on this card whatsoever. There’s only big shot die cuts and some adhesive, that’s it! Such a fun card to put together. This would look beautiful in ANY color! I’ve used this Happy Birthday Thinlit Die so many times and love it on all my projects, especially on my Daisy Delight Double-Z Fold Card. There are so many great uses for this beautifully lettered die cut!

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
