5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special & Giveaway

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so very excited to finally be posting my 5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special! I’ve been posting my video tutorials on YouTube since 2016 and am so excited to be hitting this milestone. Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement over the years. This community is so wonderful and I’m so lucky to have all of you supporting me in doing what I love!

Be sure to head over to my Specials page for your chance to enter to win 1 of 2 Stampin’ Up! Tote Bags!

I have a VERY special project and tutorial for you today. I was definitely inspired by the Coastal Crafter, Emma Goddard’s beautiful cards using the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, from the second release, with a qualifying purchase. She is a member of the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team. You can check out her beautiful work by visiting her website and following her on Instagram.

I decided to use her card as a baseline to create mine. The background has a very geometric characteristic, so I’m calling this technique the Geometric Cut technique. You can see how I go about it in my YouTube tutorial, which you can watch below or on my channel.

I started by using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad to color in the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper using a variety of techniques ranging from sponging, daubing, watercoloring, and direct to paper. I love how each one of them turned out, and am excited to play around with more techniques soon.

After I had my DSP colored in, I cut all the pieces I needed from the Gold Foil and Basic Gray card stock. Then I used the Geometric Cut technique to cut each of the three main papers the exact same way so they would come back together like a puzzle piece when I swapped them around.

After building my background, I worked on stamping, embossing, die cutting, and adhering all the little pieces to the front of the card. I am in LOVE with the Honey Bee Bundle and thought it would be PERFECT for this rose gold style card. I’m going to use these as the Thank You cards I send to my customers this month!

I also added some Rose Gold Metallic Thread and Champagne Rhinestones for a little extra pizzazz! These additional elements have the perfect touch to finish off this WOW card, I am just so in love with it. I think it might have something to do with my love for anything and everything Rose Gold!

Hanging Banners Sketch with Daisy Delight

I love challenges and have been trying so many different ideas in my VIP group. We have been doing sketch challenges which are so much fun because I get to see my VIP’s ideas unfold. There are so many different ideas and possibilities when it comes to sketches. I created the Hanging Banners sketch with the Daisy Delight Bundle, which includes a coordinating punch, in mind. It’s simple, but still so much fun for a quick card. The sentiment can easily be left off this card right up until it’s ready to be gifted, making it a perfect all occasion card. I’m so excited to announce which one of my VIP’s won this challenge, so let’s get to it!

I used the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Daisy Delight suite of products in the annual catalog for this challenge card. I really love how the Gold Glimmer Paper accents the Tranquil Tide colors. I used both Cardstock and the Finely Woven Ribbon on this card. I love how the colors are perfect matches!

The inspiration for this challenge came from a few card designs I saw on Pinterest. I love how simple and fun the banners are hanging from the off-set circle.

The winner of this challenge was one of my downlines, Diane Marra! Her card is so lovely, I absolutely adore the DSP with flecks of gold foil! She changed the alignment to create a portrait card instead of landscape, and I just adore how it turned out!

Whether you are stamping on the circle, or creating a 3D item to pop out, this fun sketch works well for so many different stamp sets! I encourage you to give this sketch a try and share your projects with me! You can post on social media and use #mkre8tionssketchchallenge or tag me with @mkre8tions so that I can see your fun projects!

Measurements:

Very Vanilla Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Very Vanilla for Daisies (x2): Approx. 4″ x 5″
Tranquil Tide Circle: Approx. 3″ x 3″
Delightful Daisy DSP: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Strip: 3/4″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Banners (x2): 3/4″ x 2″

Petal Palette Split Coloring Technique Card

Okay, it’s no surprise how much I am digging on Petal Palette. I really hope you’re a fan of this stamp set, because I’ve made a couple projects with it so far (Wedding Card and a Top Secret Project TBA), and I have a LOT more planned. I think the split coloring technique looks awesome with this set!

If you’re not a fan of the basic black strip across the card, you could certainly use ribbon. That would look LOVELY! I can just picture this card in all sorts of color combinations!
What color would you use?

Measurements:

Rich Razzleberry Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Basic Black Strip: 1/2″ x 5-1/2″
