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!

Lovely As a Tree Classic Layered Card

Today I wanted to get back into a classic set from the Annual Catalog. Lovely As a Tree is one of Stampin’ Up!’s longest running and best selling stamp sets. This beautiful set features a variety of trees and small accent stamps, and can be used for just about any occasion!

I fussy cut the small pine cone and pine branch stamps to accent my layered sentiment, and used a glue dot to hold it together. Then tied some linen thread around the layered pieces for added interest.

To make the scene cohesive and look like one long stamp, I used my Stampin’ Write marker in Basic Gray to mimic the lines of the stamps and connect the hills under the trees. You can’t even tell it isn’t a connecting image!

For the little bird and the sentiment, I used the Sitting Here stamp set. I love using layers on my cards, and think that this double layer with the sentiment raised is a nice touch to add dimension to the card.

Measurements:

Old Olive Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Basic Gray Mat #1: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Very Vanilla Mat #2: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Basic Gray Sentiment Mat #1: 1″ x 3-3/4″
Old Olive Sentiment Mat #2: 3/4″ x 3-1/2″
Very Vanilla Sentiment Mat #3: 1/2″ x 3-1/4″

Advent Tree Calendar

As a continuation from yesterday’s video where I showed you how to make a box, today we are putting that box to use. . . 25 times!

I’ve constructed an Advent Tree Calendar out of the boxes and am so excited to show you how I did it! This is NOT my original design, I first saw these last year when my Mother gave one to me as a gift.

I love how this turned out using the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Real Red Cardstock. I hope you join me in making one!

I used a computer program to make a template for the numbers. I printed them in red ink onto the Whisper White Cardstock. I punched them out using the 3/4″ Circle Punch, and adhered them to the red circle on each box with a glue dot.

The template for the numbers can be found HERE!

***AT THE TIME OF FILMING, THE CANDY CANE LANE DSP IS ON LOW INVENTORY*** Make sure you order some of this fantastic paper before it goes on back order! (10-13-2016)
