Kre8tors Autumn Color Challenge

Hello, Kre8tors! I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions. Welcome back to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating Autumn with a color challenge! I’ve provided our hop participants with the following color palette to create their projects. I think they’ve all done an amazing job, what do you think? If you’d like to create your own project using this color scheme, upload a picture of your finished project to social media and tag me on your post so that I can see your wonderful creation and share it with my followers! See the Social Media buttons at the bottom of this post to find out where you can share!

So, our color challenge theme is Autumn, and the photo above is the inspiration for our color palette. I challenged our lovely demonstrators with using at least 3 out of 5 of the colors above, and in addition to those, they are allowed to use black, white, and vanilla. Here’s what I came up with!

As I was perusing Pinterest, I came across a photo that had a beautiful dark background with colorful leaves all over. I clicked on the photo to find out more, however there was no link to follow. The only information that was on the pin said Patsy Collins and Josephs Coat Technique. She did a great job using the photo to show step by step how this technique works. I wanted to recreate her technique using the beautiful Rooted in Nature stamp set. I am in LOVE with how it turned out!

The colors I chose to use are Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Granny Apple Green. We were allowed to use Black and Whisper White as well. I think these colors are so beautiful together! They remind me of Autumn and rainbow sherbet ice cream! Yum!

Check out my video tutorial to learn how to make this fun and colorful background using the Joseph’s Coat Technique!

A Happy Match

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are getting FESTIVE with TWO amazing bundles, and I am so excited to share this project with you! I received a comment on my YouTube channel asking me to CASE the back of the Holiday Catalog. I hadn’t even really taken much notice to the projects on the back page until I read that comment. When I took the time to look at that photo, I realized how AMAZING it was! So thank you so much, Diana, for the suggestion!

This card used a LOT of TLC! I didn’t have any Designer Series Paper on hand, so I decided to ATTEMPT to make my own PLAID! Wow, that was tough. After one failed attempt, I decided to try a different method, and so this DIY DSP Plaid background paper was born! I go into a lot of detail in my YouTube video, link below. Be sure to check it out to see how this card came together!

All in all, using the materials I had on hand, I think this CASE’d card came out very well! What do you think? Are you ready to give this card a try with the materials that YOU have on hand? If you do, take a photo and upload it to Social Media, and TAG me! I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest as @MKre8tions. You can also post a photo to my Facebook page!

One of my favorite things about the Winter Woods Bundle is how unique the framelits are! You are able to create some beautiful dimension and depth with these framelits. Love adding a hint of Wink of Stella to the boughs as well! When pairing the Winter Woods Bundle with the Rooted in Nature Bundle, it does make a Happy Match indeed! These sets work beautifully together! I can’t wait to play more!

Measurements:

Garden Green Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Scored @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White for DIY DSP Plaid: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shimmer White: Approximately 4″ x 4″
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″
Cherry Cobbler Scraps: Approximately 3″ x 2″

Something Spooky This Way Comes

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! This month we are popping up because there is something spectacularly spooky here! The September ’18 Kit, Frights & Delights! This special edition kit is perfect for the Halloween season! It came with three adorable little goodie bags and tags that allowed us a vessel to fill yummy treats and pass around.

Check out my previous post and coordinating YouTube video for when I made these adorable bundles of sweet goodness!

The little bags were way too adorable, and I wanted to save as much of the materials as I could to make them all! But that didn’t stop me from making two fabulous alternate CARDS to share with you today! Two different styles, one is more “vintage-antique-shabby-chic” and the other is “bright-and-fun”! Which style is your favorite?

Don’t forget to check out my tutorial video below to see how these cards came together. Click on the NEXT button to hop over to Candy’s blog where she is going to show you her delicious project!

Fall Inspiration

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are a group of international Stampin’ Up!®️Demonstrators who love paper crafting and sharing. Today’s theme is Fall For All! I’m so excited for this hop because Autumn is my favorite time of year. The air gets crisper, the days get shorter, and it’s the best time to get cozy and snug with mugs of coffee and lit candles! It’s the absolute best!

My project today features two amazing products from the Holiday Catalog. The Winter Woods Bundle and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. These two products are my absolute favorites from this catalog and I am so pleased with how this Fall inspired card turned out.

I’m also using a fun technique that I first saw from fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett, on her YouTube channel. She uses several layers of ink on a stamp to create beautiful, variegated images using the Stamparatus. I thought that technique was so fun, I really had to try it myself and thought this Autumn Card would be the perfect opportunity to bring in some of those gorgeous Fall colors!

There are so many fantastic products in this hop! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this page and click the Next button to hop on over to Candy’s blog to see her adorable project using the Trick or Tweet stamp set!

Fresh Fig Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Score @ 5-1/2″
Fresh Fig Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Birthday Card with Rooted in Nature

Welcome back Kre8tors! I recently found myself needing a birthday card for my grandmother and knew right away I was going to choose Rooted in Nature. This set definitely embodies her spirit with the trees and leaves. Green is a color she’s always been drawn to, so I knew I had to use Shaded Spruce.

I had so much fun CASE’ing this card from Angelique over at Stempelkeuken. She did a lovely job, and when I saw this card I knew it had to be a birthday card for my grandmother! Check out the video tutorial I posted below to see how it all came together!

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Shaded Spruce Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/4″ + Scrap for Leaf Punch
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″
