January KBH Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello Kre8tors, and welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world getting together to bring you some beautiful handcrafted projects. Today we have a challenge to follow! The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, also known as Noughts & Crosses.

I’m also opening this challenge up to YOU! That’s right, just create your project using three of the items in a row, column, or diagonal line from the graphic above and post your creation on social media using the hashtag #kre8torstictactoejanuary and I will pick someone to be featured in the next Kre8tors Blog Hop post. Submit your projects using this hashtag on social media by Sunday, February 3rd!

We were tasked with using products from the brand new 2019 Occasions Catalog or Sale A Bration Brochure. If you’d like to see this catalog and flyer, ask your demonstrator for copies. If I’m your demonstrator, or you don’t yet have one, click on my Catalogs link to check out the electronic copies.

I decided to use the Meant To Be Bundle which includes the all new Cling mount stamps along with the coordinating Framelits Dies. I absolutely love the stitching around several of these die cut pieces and can’t wait to show off my Galentine’s Day project samples for you! Coming soon!

I decided to complete a diagonal line on our Tic Tac Toe Challenge graphic, using Sequins, a Punch, and Ribbon on my card today. The colors I featured are Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron. these two colors compliment each other so well, and I really love how the Grapefruit Grove matches the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins I used.

I used the Classic Label Punch to punch out each line on the sentiment to give it a little more interest over the stamped heart. And finally I used our Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake to really tie all of these elements together. I can’t find the original designer for this card, so if it looks familiar to you, leave me a comment and let me know who I can credit for the inspiration!

Check out my Video Tutorial below to see this card come together, and to learn more about Sale A Bration, how it works, and what you can earn! Plus I have a bonus #simplestamping project featuring the Hello Cupcake stamp set I earned for FREE!

Stained Glass Technique – January Paper Pumpkin Alternate with Petal Palette

One of my favorite things is when a project comes together from a flicker of an idea. This Stained Glass card was inspired by the January Paper Pumpkin Kit, Heartfelt Loves Notes. After putting all of the beautiful Valentines Cards together from this kit, I had a few pieces left over. Specifically the left overs from punching out all the labels. When I saw that piece, I immediately thought it would be perfect for a window! So I had to whip this beautiful card together.

I used several pieces from the Paper Pumpkin Kit including the label negative piece, metallic edged ribbon, Rich Razzleberry Enamel Dots, a piece from the card bases included in the kit, and a stamp from the included stamp set.

The stained glass was so much fun to make! I started by using some images from the Petal Palette stamp set and heat embossed them using Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on vellum. Then I layered it with the label negative piece.

The Stampin’ Blends are perfect for coloring ribbon, like the included Metallic Edge Ribbon from January’s kit. It’s almost addicting how fun it is to color the ribbon with our blends! I just want to color the whole spool!

This card was so much fun to put together, I think I may be using this technique quite often to build some truly inspiring cards! I love using bits and pieces from the Paper Pumpkin Kits to make alternate cards, like my Love Notes Sketch Card.

Measurements:

Rich Razzleberry Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Vellum: Cut to size depending on your stained glass frame.
(Approx. 3-1/4″ x 4-7/8″)

Love Notes Sketch Copper Inspired

I recently discovered two amazing challenges that I’m excited to participate in for the first time! I’ve used pieces from the January 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit to create this fun alternate Valentines Day Card. It has beautiful copper accents on a fun Flirty Flamingo water-colored and embossed background.

The first portion of this card was inspired by The Paper Players’ Clean & Simple Challenge: Love Notes #PP377 I loved all the different challenge cards the other crafters came up with and am excited to submit my first challenge card with them. Learn more by clicking the image below.

I’m also excited to submit my first challenge with the Global Design Project. They had a sketch challenge this week, #GDP122 I really liked this sketch, and knew I wanted to incorporate my Paper Pumpkin pieces with this. Learn more about their challenges by clicking on the image below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my project! I hope you enjoyed, and be sure to watch my coordinating video tutorial to see how mine came together.

Petal Palette Masculine Card

Almost ALL of my cards are usually pretty feminine, but I was pretty proud of myself when I came up with a masculine card for Petal Palette.
I think one of the biggest reasons I think this is a great guy card is the Night of Navy cardstock.
I’m sure that if I were to make this with, say, Berry Burst it would be another story.

I really like how the Linen Thread is looped behind the sentiment and how easy it was to shorten the label that comes in the thinlits that coordinate so perfectly with this stamp set! The branches are so beautiful and contrast nicely on the Crumb Cake cardstock.

So many times I often forget to give the inside of my cards lovin’ too, but not on this card! I made sure to use one of the gorgeous sentiments from this stamp set on the inside of my card.

Measurements:

Night of Navy Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Crumb Cake Outside Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Very Vanilla Inside Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Love Card

To those that watched my Mystery Card video, I’ve taken some of your suggestions and implemented them in this new card, which would be a perfect card for that special someone in your life.

I really love this Sweetheart embossing folder and wanted to make it work on a card. I think this is the perfect application for it! Of course I had to slip in some shiny with the Real Red Glimmer paper.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Rectangle 1: 1-1/4″ x 2″
Rectangle 2: 1-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
