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!

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!
