KBH June 2020 Masculine Card

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month’s theme is dedicated to the special guys in your life. My dad’s birthday is this month as well as Father’s Day here in the U.S. so I really wanted to make a special card for him! I got to play with the World of Good Suite Collection for this card and love all the beautiful elements!

Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more masculine projects inspiration!

I love all the layers and textures on this card. It’s something totally out of my norm, but I really enjoyed the process of creation. It took over an hour to make, but my video is condensed into about 16 minutes.

I had no idea what I wanted to create when I started and just kind of played around until this idea started forming. You can notice two of the globes on this card, one is from the sticker sheet in the memories and more card pack from the suite collection. The other is also partially from the sticker pack… check out my video to see how I made it!

I love this torn vellum look with the gold fibers. This was so different, but so fun to make! It looks like the world is bursting through the vellum.

The black cardstock with the gold foil grid is also from the memories and more card pack, as well as the Cinnamon Cider DSP. I ran that through the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to give it some texture and then used a sponge dauber to distress.

I am so pleased with this card and can’t wait to give it to my father at his Birthday/Father’s Day party! Can you tell there’s lots of layers to this card? I probably used 30 dimensionals! Okay, maybe that’s a stretch… or is it…? Watch the video and comment on this post or the video with your guess!

I’m also working on my hand lettering. I haven’t used Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write Marker in Basic Black to letter before, but I think with a little more practice it will work beautifully!

A couple additional stickers from the memories and more card pack and this card is done! I love how it turned out! Check out my YouTube video below to see it comes together, and to check out my tricks sprinkled throughout the video! Don’t forget to…

The Kre8tors First VLOG Hop

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the first Kre8tors VLOG Hop! Today we are sharing our projects via YouTube videos! So head on over to my YouTube channel to get started. Once there, click on the description of the video to hop along to everyone’s projects.

I absolutely love CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) the catalogs. Not only can we use our catalogs to find great products to buy, but we can also use it as a design book! There are so many beautiful projects in there, the possibilities are nearly endless!

I chose to CASE one of the cards from the Forever Greenery Suite Collection on page 108 in the brand new Annual Catalog. I was so pleased with how this card turned out. It came together very quickly with all of the coordinating products from the collection.

I love the speckled background. I used the speckled stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamped it onto the embossed background in the same color as my card stock. It gives it a watermark effect and just adds a little texture.

The leaves are all cut out of the designer series paper using the coordinating die cuts. I love that Stampin’ Up! designs their products to all play together so well. It makes crafting so simple and quick!

Watch my video below to see how this card came together.

KBH May 2020 Floral

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month’s theme is FLORAL. I’ve decided to use the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to make a Mother’s Day Card for my mom. Here in the U.S., today is Mother’s Day! So hopefully she doesn’t see this post before I give her this beautiful card!

Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more floral inspiration!

I knew I wanted this to be a bright and fun card that used a lot of purple, so I found this beautiful piece of designer series paper and pulled out the Rich Razzleberry to be my focal piece in the middle.

The sentiments from A Wish For Everything were perfect on this card! I love the mix of cursive and bold fonts together. I stamped both of these in Memento ink on scrap Whisper White Card Stock and then fussy cut them out.

I really loved how this ‘coiled medallion’ gave this card another floral vibe. I used the Nature’s Twine in Rich Razzleberry, and coiled it up on a circle of Vellum. Then I used the Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to loop around the circle to make it look like a daisy. I thought I liked it before adding the ribbon, but now I think I love it! What do you think?

Of course I had to throw in a few of those Peaceful Poppies Sequins. They are so fun and come in such a great array of colors. They really finish off this card well. I’m going to miss them when they retire next month! If you haven’t had a chance to play with them yet, get some before they’re gone!

I’ve made a video tutorial for you to watch and learn how to make that fun twine coiled medallion. Take a peek below, and be sure to hit that subscribe button! It allows me to keep making videos for you!

April 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop Spring

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 spring inspiration! My project today is actually the second part to making this beautiful Tri-Fold Pocket Card! If you haven’t seen the first part yet, be sure to visit the previous post to check it out! Then come back here to find out how to add the bookmarks to the inside and how I decorated mine.

To decorate my bookmarks, I used the same colors that I used when I colored in the designer series paper. I stamped a few of the hearts from the Meant to be Bundle as well as the floral border at the top and bottom of the bookmark. I used some of the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon at the top where I punched the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

On scrap Whisper White card stock, I stamped a few of the larger hearts and then colored those in as well. Some of the striped hearts made great accompaniments to the larger hearts on each of the pockets. One of the things I love so much about this tri-fold pocket card is that each family member can write a sentiment on the bookmarks and really make them their own.

I colored in the hearts using the same colors I used on the DSP. I didn’t bother with shading or blending the colors since the areas I colored in were so tiny. I love that we can use the Stampin’ Blends to blend and to color images. The colors are so vibrant! It’s hard to stop once you start.

I can’t wait to sit down with my family and have each of us write a little sentiment on these bookmarks. I’m hoping that we will all share a fond memory of the person and be able to recall all the good times we’ve had together, with wishes for more good times to come very soon.

Be sure to check out my video tutorial on Part 1 to see how the Tri-Fold Pocket Card came together, and check out my video tutorial for Part 2 below to see how I decorated the inside!

Measurements:

Whisper White Bookmarks x3: 2″ x 5-1/5″

A Wish for Everything Square Card

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! I’m so excited to share a beautiful card with you today. This card features the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper from the second release Sale-A-Bration items. It’s FREE with a $50 purchase. I paired it with the A Wish For Everything Bundle and love how they work together!

I wanted to color in these beautiful flowers, so I used my Stampin’ Blends in an array of colors to make these flowers really pop. I used a combination of light and dark blends to create shadowing effects on the roses and leaves.

This card is not a standard size. Because I was delivering this to someone very special in person, I wanted to make a card size that I wouldn’t typically make since I didn’t have to mail it! It’s fun to give cards in person and be able to have full creative license and not have to stick to rigid guidelines for sending in the mail without extra postage.

I used the beautiful Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and colored in the roses with a variety of Stampin’ Blends markers. It was so much fun to color in the paper and it was very relaxing, too. It’s nice to find something relaxing to do to take my mind off things.

I fussy cut around the edges of the flowers and then glued this piece to the top of my card base. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones around the cluster of flowers for some bling. I used my Stampin’ Blend markers to color in an ombre background, and used that to cut out the word happy with the Word Wishes dies. Then I used the coordinating stamp ‘wishes’ from the A Word For Everything stamp set and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

This card went to a very special family and I’m so glad I could brighten their day with a handmade card. I know a lot of people that could use a little smile right now, so I’ll be making a lot of cards, I’m sure!
