Peaceful Poppies Thank You Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Thank you cards are always needed. Someone gives you a gift, someone does you a kindness, or maybe you want to give them as a gift to someone else who would appreciate the work and love you put into your kre8tions. I hope you find these thank you cards inspiring and give them a try!

The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle makes this card super simple. I used a standard Whisper White card base, and then stamped the splatter images from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and cut it out on my die cutting machine using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies.

The poppy accent is from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. So easy to just pop it out of the pre-cut thick card stock sheet and adhere it with a glue dot. There’s also vellum and watercolor pieces with the elements that can really elevate your card game.

Probably one of my favorite items in the Suite Bundle would have to be the Peaceful Poppies Sequins. There are a variety of shapes and colors, and they add the perfect bling to the project. I always like to add them in batches of 3 or 5, and adhere them using some Liquid Glue along with the Take Your Pick tool. It’s super helpful when trying to pick up those tiny sequins!

The black swirl accent in the background is so much fun and reminds me so much of the Swirly Bird set. It adds just the right background element on this card. I stamped the sentiment using StazOn ink in Jet Black. I love how crisp and clean this card design looks.

I really hope you enjoyed this card design. I would love to see you case it! Just tag me on social media. You can find me just about everywhere with @mkre8tions

Mountain Air Bundle Birthday Sunset

Hello Kre8tors! Thanks so much for coming back! And if you’re new here, welcome! I’m glad you found your way to my blog. Today I’m sharing a birthday card I made for my brother using the Mountain Air Bundle.

I knew as soon as I saw this card I was going to make it for my brother’s birthday. I thought a sunset would look so beautiful behind those mountains! I cut them out from Basic Black card stock to give the illusion of a silhouette.

I cut four trees from Basic Black card stock as well, two of the detailed trees and two of the smaller solid trees. I thought those could represent the four members of his family. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using the Label Me Bold stamp set and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Powder on a scrap of black cardstock. This really made it stand out nicely!

I used the masking technique for the sun to get it bright white in the background. I love this technique, and using a sticky note makes it super easy!

Be sure you take a look at my video tutorial to see how this card came together, and the creative process of me struggling to find just the right placement for all these pieces!

Kre8tors Blog Hop Love & Romance

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!

For today’s hop we are celebrating love and romance in preparation for Valentine’s Day! I decided to make a candy box using the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. I took a Snickers bar and made this custom box for my sweetheart for his Valentine’s Day treat.

I used the Label Me Bold stamp set to stamp the For You From Me sentiments and the little hearts on the Whisper White tag adhered to the top of the box. This is a great stamp set, and I love how the sentiments look like labels from a label maker.

The Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon wraps around the box, and the bow is tied separately and adhered using a glue dot. I think this really finishes the box well. This box is not meant to be opened from the edges, it has a small gap between the top flap and the top edge that can be used to sneak the candy bar out.

I also added a faux chocolate bar with a bite mark using some Early Espresso card stock. You can see all the details on how this box came together in my YouTube tutorial below. I also have written out the measurements for my box, although you can easily custom make your own box by measuring the candy bar you would like to use.

Check out my YouTube video tutorial on directions for putting this box together. It was so much fun to create. Be sure to subscribe to my channel. It’s not too late to get in my 5,000 Subscriber Giveaway. Learn more on my Specials page.

February ICS Blog Hop Thinking of You with Honey Bees

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share 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!

Today’s card features the adorable Honey Bee Bundle, yet again! I just can’t get enough of these beautiful little bees! I’m taking a scrap of Whisper White that I had previously cut out some of the images from the Detailed Bees Die Cuts and putting it to work. I was excited at the idea of using this ‘used’ piece of cardstock and turning it into a card.

If you have a piece of “trash” like a cut-out scrap that was partially used for another project, take a before and after photo and use the hashtag #trashtotreasurekre8tions and I will pick a few to feature on my Instagram!

I stamped my sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, and then took the larger solid bee die cut and cut it out. It fits perfectly in this little die cut. I layered that on top of the honeycomb cut out, inset with some Daffodil Delight hexagons from the honeycomb die cut. I also added a piece of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon. Love this ribbon!

I used the FREE Sale-A-Bration item, Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack to put these beautiful teal colored sequins in the shaker portion of this card. I used them in the Hive as well as behind the detailed gold bee die cut. I love the contrast of the teal against the Daffodil Delight.

 

This gold detail bee die cut is absolutely stunning! The wings have incredible detail. I can just see a swarm of these covering a card and looking breathtaking. If you get really ambitious, you can even cut this out from two contrasting colors of card stock and inlay the pieces from one into the other. That would be a master level jigsaw puzzle for sure!

I had also previously stamped and colored in this little bee. I stamped it with Stazon ink and colored it in using the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker from the Brights collection. I inset him behind the cutout on my ‘used’ card mat. I love the look of inset versus popped up sometimes. I think it’s a nice little change. It reminds me of the game Operation. Do you remember that game?

I really love how this fun little shaker card turned out. It’s so bright and cheerful! I really hope you give this one a try. I love that the sequins are behind the detailed bee and the hive. It’s like a two-in-one shaker! The trick is to keep your compartments contained where you want the shaker parts to be placed. The Foam Adhesive Strips are perfect for that job!

I really hope you enjoyed my project for today’s blog hop! Here’s my video tutorial detailing how this card came together.

Painted Poppies DSP Striped Cards

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to share with you TWO cards using the Peaceful Poppies Suite of products! This suite is my FAVORITE from the new 2020 Mini Catalog. It’s packed full of amazing goodies! Have you purchased yours yet? I hope you do, because I don’t want you to miss out!

This first card was inspired by a post from Kimberly Wiener on Pinterest. I loved how hers looked and knew this stamp set would be perfect to CASE her card! I stamped my own DSP and colored them in by hand. This took a long time, but I think it was worth it in the end!

The star of the show on this card are the beautiful poppy stamps from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I used some Stampin’ Blends to color them, and adore how they turned out! They are so vibrant!

I also accented this card with some of those adorable Peaceful Poppies Sequins. Did you know that some of the sequins are flower shaped? They’re too fun and would make amazing shaker cards!

I used the Thank You sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. This font is beautiful on these cards. I love it when lots of products coordinate together, just like every product in the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle!

This is a BONUS card, and an alternative to the lengthy coloring session that is needed for Card #1. This card features some of the Peaceful Poppies DSP, so it goes together much quicker!

I also used one of the die cut pieces from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. They were perfect with the piece of DSP I chose to use, and you can even color over them with the Stampin’ Blends! I added a little bow using the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon from this suite.

And of course, any poppies card wouldn’t be complete without those adorable flower shaped sequins that come in the Peaceful Poppies Sequins! I chose three different colors. What colors would you have used?

Again, the sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Bundle. I just love how the two fonts on this sentiment compliment each other. This is going to make a lovely birthday card for someone special.
