ICS Blog Hop Beautiful Bundles

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop today and we have some very fun bundles to share with you! 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’ve decided to showcase the Sailing Home Bundle today, along with a few extra bits from the suite of products that coordinate beautifully. I’ve scoured Pinterest for some layout inspiration and came across Heather Klump’s beautiful project which you can see here. My layout is almost identical to Heather’s, but she used an older Stampin’ Up! set for her focal pieces.

I rarely make square cards, or any card that isn’t the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, but this one really stood out to me. I loved the tile look and the floating accents in the foreground. It was a lot of fun to put together and not as time consuming as I thought it might be.

And I absolutely love the Sail Away Trinkets! They just add a pop of shine. I did color mine with an Old Olive Dark Stampin’ Blend alcohol based marker, but it would look beautiful heat embossed in some copper or gold embossing powder as well.

Check out my video tutorial below to see exactly how this card came together, and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more video tutorials!

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Fancy Folds

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today and we have some very fun folds to share with you! 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!

For my project today, I’ve decided to make a Half Easel Card. What I love so much about this fancy fold is that you have the large canvas of the inside card mat to play with, as well as a pop-up element to make the card a bit more… fancy!

I went with the Rooted in Nature stamp set because it had a large and interesting sentiment I could place on the right hand side of the inner mat, as well as an elongated image that is perfect for the narrow easel on the left.

Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake are the perfect colors for this card! It can be both masculine and feminine, and there are so many design changes that could be made. This will work with a variety of different stamp sets. Use your imagination and show me what you come up with! Tag me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook! @MKre8tions

Here’s my video tutorial to demonstrate how this card is made. Be sure to visit my YouTube channel and click that SUBSCRIBE button! It helps me to continue making videos for you to enjoy!

Negative Image Special Reason Card

I am absolutely IN LOVE with the Special Reason bundle in the new Occasions catalog. There are so many great cards and projects that can be made!

This project was CASE’d from the Occasions catalog but I altered it slightly to a smaller size and used the small flower instead of the larger one. I love the Calypso Coral and Peekaboo Peach together, it’s such a lovely combination!
