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.

Beautiful Blizzard Holiday Card

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back, so glad you are joining me today for some craftiness on this blustery day! I am so glad that my family shares my love and passion for stamping and crafting. My mother is one of my biggest supporters, both emotionally and financially. She has quite the collection of Stampin’ Up!®️ products, so we often get to “borrow” each other’s things. I did just that with this Beautiful Blizzard set.

She purchased this set, with no real projects in mind. Sometimes those are the BEST purchases, because then you can be inspired by so many other wonderful crafters. My mother handed me this set and said, show me what I can make. So, I took to Pinterest and came across Krista Driessen’s Beautiful Blizzard card. She inspired me to CASE her card, and it’s absolutely stunning!

The only color that I used from her original project was Soft Sea Foam. The other colors I incorporated include Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, and Coastal Cabana. I also threw in some Linen Thread, Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins, and Rhinestones. I totally love this clean and quick card and can’t wait to make my Holiday cards with this design and loads of colors!

Some of my most favorite cards are often the simplest. I love the cards that involve a lot of stamping, like this design. There are lots of beautiful stamps in different colors, and then a pop of accents here and there. It’s flat, with the exception of the raised sentiment, though that could be stamped flat on the card base and would look beautiful as well. Take a peek at my video tutorial to see how my version of this card came together!

The Beautiful Blizzard stamp set can be bundled with the Blizzard Thinlits Die to save you 10%! Be sure to stay tuned as my next project will feature both of these amazing products!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″
Smoky Slate Scrap: Approximately 1/2″ x 3″
