Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Card

Hello Kre8tors! So sorry I’ve been missing over the last week. It’s been hectic, baby, food poisoning, life changes… It’s been a lot! But I’m so happy to have found the time to make my husband’s grandparents a very special card for their 60th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make it super special, so I totally decked it out with all the bling! I’ve read that 60th is diamonds, so I wanted to get this card as sparkly as possible!

I don’t keep a very large stamp inventory, but I wanted to use something that was just right for this very special occasion. I decided to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with the coordinating die cuts. I’m so happy I chose this set, because it was perfect! I love the cute little Mr & Mrs tag hanging from the bouquet, as well as the Happy Anniversary sentiment.

I decided to use the Tufted embossing folder for the Whisper White Card Mat on top. I really liked how the Tufted folder looks with the solid white and Blueberry Bushel foil framing the sentiment cut out window. I think the embossing really makes the rhinestones stand out at each of the intersections.

I used a scrap of glimmer paper and more of that gorgeous Blueberry Bushel foil to cut out the flowers and bouquet pieces. I wanted to keep with a monochromatic theme, so I just used the blue foil along with clean white papers. I tied the little bow on the Mr & Mrs Tag and adhered it to the bouquet using a mini glue dot. I used a combination of dimensionals, glue dots, and snail to get this card ‘stuck’ together.

The rhinestones added just the right amount of bling to this card. I wanted this card to feel extravagant for this very special milestone. Every intersection on the Tufted embossing folder has a rhinestone, unless that intersection is covered by the bouquet. For the foil on this card, I wanted to maximize the foil I had, so instead of cutting one piece that measured 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, I cut a 3″ strip to cut out the blue frame, and then I cut 1/2″ strips from the remaining 3″ strip to frame the edges. This gives the appearance of a solid card mat behind the white mat, without having to use a lot of foil.

I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink, and this card was finished! It actually came together very fast once I knew what I wanted to do, and cut out all the pieces! This card was inspired by a Pinterest pin from Lou Kitzelman. You can see her project here.

Kre8tors Blog Hop October 2019 Fall

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more Autumnal inspiration!

My absolute favorite season is Fall/Autumn. It’s when the leaves change from bright green to red, yellow, and orange, the air starts to get crisp, but the sun is still shining. I love it! So I took my love for Fall and the changing leaves as my inspiration for my Fall inspired card.

Of course I had to use the Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating dies to create this lovely card. That stamp and die set is so versatile and is perfect for SOOO many different occasions!

Stamping the leaves in so many different colors was highly addictive! I stamped enough so that I could make two cards. I always love to stamp a little extra to use later. It’s a big time saver!

I used the Tufted embossing folder on the background for a more plush look behind my falling leaves. I love the white mat on the white card base because the colors of the leaves and the texture of the background really stand out!

 

I used the Delicata Celestial Copper ink for the sentiment and I can’t believe the amount of sparkle! It’s perfect for this card! The copper really compliments the Fall colors of the leaves. I’m so happy with the way this card turned out! Be sure to check out my YouTube tutorial to see how it all came together AND to hear about a giveaway for my 5,000 YouTube subscriber milestone!

 

Also, the new trimmer is here! It’s currently only available to demonstrators, and new recruits can add it to their starter kits! If you’d like to join my team, click on the Join My Team link at the top of the page! The customer date is TBD, so keep checking back for more information.

Seeing Hearts with the Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! If you haven’t been to our hop before, you’re in for a treat! We have 27 Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from all over the world collaborating to bring you some wonderful Valentines and Love themed projects. Be sure to read through each, leave a comment, and click the Next Button to hop around to everyone’s post, you really don’t want to miss out!

I first saw this adorable Triangle Treat Box from Beth McCullough over at Stamping Mom. They were so adorable, I had to CASE it, and add my own personal touch. The base is exactly the same as hers, except I added an embossing folder to mine. The embellishments on the front are my own design, and I really love how they turned out!

I used these as party favors at my Galentine’s Day card making class at the beginning of February. We made five Valentine’s Day cards, some of which you can see in my previous posts: Tufted Heart of Gold and I Believe in a Thing Called Love.

These really were fun to make, and I couldn’t stop! I think I made about 10 of them. They are addicting! They are also the first 3D project I’ve made in a long time! I’ve been making so many cards lately, it was really nice to get out of the card comfort zone and do something different. Do you prefer 3D projects or cards? Let me know in the comments!

Beth’s directions were super easy to follow, and she gave lots of great tips on how to construct this box. I’ve included what I learned in my video tutorial below. The Meant To Be Bundle really adds a special Valentine’s touch to the embellishments on this treat box. You can save 10% by purchasing the Meant To Be Stamp Set and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies together in the Bundle.

Spring is in the Air with Ink Stamp Share

Welcome back to the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop! January’s theme is our beautiful Spring/Summer Catalog that just launched. It’s called the Occasions Catalog and is full of amazing and beautiful things! One of my favorite bundles is the Meant to Be Bundle featured right at the beginning of the catalog.

I gained my inspiration for this card from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Cindi Clarke. I stumbled across her Pinterest pin and fell in love. I did quite a few tweaks to really make this card my own, and added the pink striped heart, side flourish, and removed the mat layer she used. I also chose to use our Gold Foil.

One of my absolute favorite features on this card has to be the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gives a beautiful quilted look to your project. The Gold Foil really takes well to this embossing folder and holds the shape beautifully. I rounded my heart slightly to make it look a little “poofier”. Take a look at my video below to see how it’s done!

This is one of the cards I am offering my Galentine’s Day participants. We are making 5 Valentine Cards with envelopes. I’m really excited to show my students this fun project! Stay tuned for my other videos in the series by subscribing to my YouTube channel!

Be sure to click the Next button and hop along to Eva’s amazing project! There are so many lovely demonstrators showing off tons of awesome products, you really don’t want to miss any of them!
