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!

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.

Bloom and Grow Simple Thank You Cards

Hello Kre8tors! If you’re new here, welcome! If you’re a returning reader, thanks for coming back! Can we just talk about the Bloom & Grow stamp set for just a sec…. It’s AMAZING! This is the first project I’ve made with it, but I am absolutely in LOVe and have big plans now!

I needed some quick and beautiful thank you cards, and this set made the PERFECT cards! Add a couple simple embellishments, and BOOM, beautiful cards in minutes!

I started with a basic Whisper White card base, and layered a 2-1/2″ square on top. I used the thank you sentiment from the Bloom and Grow stamp set, and added a few of the smaller leaves and twig stamps.

I colored those in with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Duo (light and dark) and then added some Poppy Parade to the little berries. I also used the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend in Dark to color in the Epoxy Hearts. It works BEAUTIFULLY! If you haven’t tried it yet, I suggest you do!

I also added some of our Burlap Ribbon behind the layered square for a little extra OOMPH. I have a little trick for getting the MOST MILEAGE out of your ribbon. Check it out in my video below!

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Layering Square: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop – Masculine Cards

Welcome back, Kre8tors! Today we are hopping with the International Ink. Stamp. Share. Monthly Blog Hop and today’s theme is Masculine! I hope you enjoyed Linda’s wonderful project and be sure to scroll down to that next button to hop on over to Deb’s blog for some awesome inspiration! I’m really excited about this theme because I don’t often think to make cards for the guys in my life, but I always seem to need them! I was so excited to play with the Painted Seasons stamp set so I decided to use the pinecone and fern from the set on my card.

I knew I wanted to use some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this masculine card, and I had lots of scraps! So I decided to cut up 4 different patterns and use them as panels in the background.

I stamped the pinecones and fern from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration set, and cut them out by hand, also known as fussy cutting. I love how detailed this stamp set looks! I stamped the ‘Thanks’ from the Thankful Thoughts set that can be found in the Annual Catalog.

I popped up all the panels using dimensionals, a LOT of dimensionals. Watch the video to see just how many I used! I finished it all off with some Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake and boom! Done! This was a fast and simple masculine card!


Measurements:

Early Espresso Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/2″
DSP: 4 @ 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Mats:4@ 1-3/4″x2-3/4″
Dark Strip: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Light Strip: 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″

Materials:

Split Coloring Technique REDO with the Stamparatus

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back, so good to see you again! Today’s video is a remake of one of my earlier cards, the Split Coloring Technique. When I originally made this card, I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the placement on the colored in card stock and the base card stock. I received a request from Kay Capps to show how to make this card using the Stamparatus. I thought that was a brilliant idea, so here it is! Thanks for the suggestion, Kay!

I knew I wanted to use the beautiful Poppy Parade as my base color this time because I just so happen to have the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend markers which make coloring in so easy and fun! I paired that with Old Olive, which is a beautiful green that compliments just about any color.

Positioning the stamps was really easy, and fit beautifully together with the images from Petal Palette. I adore this set, and am so pleased with how well it works with this technique on the Stamparatus! I’m eager to make more of these cards, and play around with different placements.

Be sure to take a peek at my video tutorial, which shows you just how I achieved the look on this beautiful card. This video is slightly different from my others in the way I narrated my actions with a voice over. If you decide to watch it, let me know what you thought!

Measurements:

Poppy Parade Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, cut after coloring
