Honey Bee Bundle SAB Part 1 and Kre8tors Blog Hop Mini Catalog

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration! Now, onto a very beautiful and special project using the Honey Bee Bundle and some GORGEOUS Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!

I CASE’d this project from page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. I have already CASE’d one of them in a previous post, and will be CASE-ing the other in an upcoming post. I wanted to share this card with you because it uses some of the amazing gold foil papers from the Golden Honey Speciality DSP. When I first saw this paper, I knew I HAD to have it! There was no ifs, ands, or buts about it! And you bet I will be spending additional SAB rewards I earn on MORE!

This was a simple card to make, but it offers SO much! The stunning black background with the pops of Coastal Cabana… the delicate gold foil bee under the simple and small ‘Hello’ sentiment… the subtle hint of Coastal Cabana in the honeycomb under the gold bee… this card is packed full of beautiful details!

The best part about this paper? It’s absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase! Just $50 in product will earn you a free item out of the Sale-A-Bration flyer. So that means if you purchased the Honey Bee Bundle, that gorgeous Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you can get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! Ask your demonstrator for details, or if you don’t have a demonstrator or are new to Stampin’ Up! go ahead and send me a message! I’d love to help you out!

The best part about CASE-ing the catalogs and flyers is that on some pages, Stampin’ Up! tells you exactly what you need to create these projects. On page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer, they give you a list of products you will need to create three beautiful projects. I followed that list to create this card, however I wasn’t able to get my hands on the beautiful Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon when I made this card, so I substituted for the Metallic Baker’s Twine that came in the Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack, which is also a Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.

Check out my video tutorial below to find out how this beautiful card came together. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more great tutorials!

Welcome to Sale-A-Bration!

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to 2020 and to Sale-A-Bration! This is such an amazing time of year, because you get FREE products for shopping, hosting, or joining Stampin’ Up! I wanted to get our brand new Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Flyer launched with a fun project using the Honey Bee Bundle.

This bundle is perfect for a variety of cards, and coordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I am CASEing the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Flyer, and creating three projects for you that use this set along with that FREE paper! So be sure you follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and find me on Facebook so you don’t miss out!

This card was a lot of fun to make. I tweaked it slightly to make it a standard size card instead of the square size that was shown in the SAB Flyer. It turned out beautiful, though I did have a hard time chopping up that gorgeous gold foil specialty designer series paper. But that’s what it’s for, right?!

I substituted a FREE SAB product, the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins, for the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon as I don’t have any of that beautiful stuff quite yet… but 3 spools are on their way to me! If you were to purchase the Honey Bee Bundle, one spool of that Ruched Ribbon, and an adhesive, you would qualify to get the Golden Honey Specialty DSP for FREE! For more details, visit my online store.

There are also amazing perks for hosting a party (virtual) or joining my team. I would love to talk to you about the benefits of each option, and what extra goodies you get during SAB!

For now, let’s take a peek at what you need to make this awesome card! Check out my video tutorial below, and please let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

Happy New Year and let’s Sale-A-Brate!

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop – Masculine Cards

Welcome back, Kre8tors! Today we are hopping with the International Ink. Stamp. Share. Monthly Blog Hop and today’s theme is Masculine! I hope you enjoyed Linda’s wonderful project and be sure to scroll down to that next button to hop on over to Deb’s blog for some awesome inspiration! I’m really excited about this theme because I don’t often think to make cards for the guys in my life, but I always seem to need them! I was so excited to play with the Painted Seasons stamp set so I decided to use the pinecone and fern from the set on my card.

I knew I wanted to use some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this masculine card, and I had lots of scraps! So I decided to cut up 4 different patterns and use them as panels in the background.

I stamped the pinecones and fern from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration set, and cut them out by hand, also known as fussy cutting. I love how detailed this stamp set looks! I stamped the ‘Thanks’ from the Thankful Thoughts set that can be found in the Annual Catalog.

I popped up all the panels using dimensionals, a LOT of dimensionals. Watch the video to see just how many I used! I finished it all off with some Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake and boom! Done! This was a fast and simple masculine card!


Measurements:

Early Espresso Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/2″
DSP: 4 @ 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Mats:4@ 1-3/4″x2-3/4″
Dark Strip: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Light Strip: 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″

Materials:

Glue Dots

$5.25

ICS Blog Hop Hello Cupcake

Hello Kre8tors! Thanks so much for joining me today for the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! This month we are SALE-A-BRATE’ing with some amazing products you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase! I’ll be showcasing the Hello Cupcake stamp set and teaching you how to put these adorable cards together! Be sure to scroll to the end of the post and click that Next button to hop along to the other wonderfully talented Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators that are collaborating in this hop!

For my project, I decided to CASE the Sale-A-Bration brochure. There are a lot of amazing projects and inspiration waiting to be crafted! I used the Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration set and created these two cards. I used every color from the 2017-2019 In Colors to stamp on both of these cards. Can you name all 5 colors without peeking at the products? If you love those colors, snag them quick! They will retire this year, and may start selling out as we get closer to the end of the current Annual Catalog!

The first card has a Soft Sea Foam card base and features a watermark effect with the sprinkles stamp. I achieved this look by using the same color Stampin’ Pad to stamp the sprinkles. I also used Powder Pink, Berry Burst, and Soft Suede.

The banner is one of my favorite parts on this card! It’s so easy to make and whips up in no time with a little scoring and a little snipping. See how I made it by watching my tutorial at the end of this post, or by visiting my YouTube channel.

The second card I CASE’d from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure is this adorable miniature card. It measures 3-1/2″ square and features the cupcake again, only this time I used Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig.

I added some washi tape behind the cupcake, and stamped my sentiment in Memento ink on a piece of Vellum cardstock. I fussy cut out the frosting, however if you purchase the Sale-A-Bration Coordination item, Call Me Cupcake Framelits, you won’t need to fussy cut! I also added a couple frosted epoxy droplets and boom! This card was finished!

I really hope you enjoyed my projects today! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to click the next button below to hop along to Darla’s awesome project.

January KBH Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world getting together to bring you some beautiful handcrafted projects. Today we have a challenge to follow! The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, also known as Noughts & Crosses.

I’m also opening this challenge up to YOU! That’s right, just create your project using three of the items in a row, column, or diagonal line from the graphic above and post your creation on social media using the hashtag #kre8torstictactoejanuary and I will pick someone to be featured in the next Kre8tors Blog Hop post. Submit your projects using this hashtag on social media by Sunday, February 3rd!

We were tasked with using products from the brand new 2019 Occasions Catalog or Sale A Bration Brochure. If you’d like to see this catalog and flyer, ask your demonstrator for copies. If I’m your demonstrator, or you don’t yet have one, click on my Catalogs link to check out the electronic copies.

I decided to use the Meant To Be Bundle which includes the all new Cling mount stamps along with the coordinating Framelits Dies. I absolutely love the stitching around several of these die cut pieces and can’t wait to show off my Galentine’s Day project samples for you! Coming soon!

I decided to complete a diagonal line on our Tic Tac Toe Challenge graphic, using Sequins, a Punch, and Ribbon on my card today. The colors I featured are Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron. these two colors compliment each other so well, and I really love how the Grapefruit Grove matches the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins I used.

I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out each line on the sentiment to give it a little more interest over the stamped heart. And finally I used our Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake to really tie all of these elements together. I can’t find the original designer for this card, so if it looks familiar to you, leave me a comment and let me know who I can credit for the inspiration!

Check out my Video Tutorial below to see this card come together, and to learn more about Sale A Bration, how it works, and what you can earn! Plus I have a bonus #simplestamping project featuring the Hello Cupcake stamp set I earned for FREE!
