May Kre8tors Technique Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m really excited for this hop because it’s all about techniques! Each of the wonderful demonstrators that are participating with us in this hop have showcased either a stamping, inking, or folding technique of some sort. This is a great opportunity to see some amazing projects and perhaps learn something new! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of each post and click that Next button to hop along to everyone’s projects!

The technique I’m showcasing sort of sneaks up on you when you open the card. The front of the card looks pretty normal, very clean, not a lot going on. Very simple. Beautiful on it’s own, but then you open it…

And all of that dimension and detail fill the card! This technique is called the “Inside Tunnel Card” and I learned this from watching fellow crafter Jennifer McGuire on YouTube. Her ideas are so creative, I love to CASE them using Stampin’ Up! products. One of the best parts about this card is that it folds FLAT so it can be mailed easily!

I featured First Frost on this card for all the imagery, and the sentiments are both from Tea Together. This card of course is for my wonderful Mother, and she’s going to be receiving it TODAY! So I hope she’s not watching the video or following her Facebook feed today! But in case she is, then I’d like to say, Happy Mother’s Day!

Kre8tors Blog Hop Bye Bye SAB

Hello Kre8tors! So glad you are joining us for the March Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are saying Bye Bye to Sale-A-Bration! That’s right, at the end of this month, the SAB Sale will be over! Say it ain’t so! Take advantage of the final few weeks to get your hands on some FREEBIES just for shopping. As always, scroll to the bottom of this post, click that Next button, and hop around to get inspired by some amazing projects!

For my projects, I decided to use the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog and I paired it with the coordinating SAB Tea Time Framelits Dies. The framelits dies are absolutely FREE with a $100 purchase. By purchasing the items you need to create this card and tea wrap, you will qualify to get the framelits for free!

I CASE’d the Sale A Bration Brochure to make the skinny card, but I didn’t have all the same supplies they used on their sample. But that’s not a problem! Just use what you have on hand! I changed the sentiment and used the same one from the Tea Together stamp set. I also didn’t have the Designer Series Paper, so I used my Buffalo Check stamp instead and it turned out great!

I really like the technique for stacking the tea cups inside each other. Be sure to check out my YouTube video at the end of this post to see how I achieved the look.

I paired this adorable little tea wrap with this SAB project. I was able to get two cards and one tea wrap from one sheet of standard card stock. There’s almost no waste! I love this little tea wrap. It would make a fun little table setting gift for a fun event or tea party.

You can also flip the tea holder inside out and use it as a little easel stand to display your tea bag! I love it when a project does double duty! I can’t wait to hand these adorable little matching paper crafts to my friends and family! They are perfect for any tea drinker! (Hint: Not a tea fan? Leave off the sentiment and put in a packet of instant coffee or a small brick of chocolate!)

I hope you enjoyed these fun projects today! Be sure to check out the video below, and take advantage of those Sale-A-Bration items while they are still here! Click the next button below to hop on over to Sue’s amazing project! And as always, thanks for hopping!
