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.

Ombre Heat Emboss Technique

Yes, today is Wednesday. I know, I normally air Melissa’s Kre8tions Live! on my YouTube channel. No, I am not going live today. I’m in the process of moving, so I’m bringing you a regular, good ol’ fashioned tutorial!

This is a technique I learned from watching our CEO Sara Douglass at OnStage in Brisbane, AU! No, I wasn’t actually there. But as a Demonstrator, I was able to watch the replays online! Woohoo! If you want these perks too, ask me how to get in on the fun!

This is such a fun technique, I’ve decided to call it the Ombre technique, though I don’t know if it has a real name. . . It makes such a gorgeous sentiment though!

Kre8tiv Kwickie – Re-Inkers

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Kre8tiv Kwickie!

This time we are discussing Re-Inkers! I love a fresh, juicy stamp pad when stamping. Use re-inkers to refresh your stamp pads as needed.

Stampin’ Up! carries re-inkers for all of their stamp pads, with the exception of the Ombre pads. Just head to my online store and type in the name of the color, or the word ink, and you can shop around for the colors you need.
