July 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop Card Sketch Challenge

Welcome Kre8tors to another Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you have joined us! Whether this is your first time hopping with us, or you’re a seasoned hopper, you are in for a treat! This month, the members of KBH from around the world are bringing you inspiration in the form of a sketch challenge! This is one of my favorite sketches and I’m so glad to bring it back to debut some awesome products from the new Annual Catalog!

Here’s a copy of the sketch challenge that was issued to the members of KBH. You might recognize this sketch from a previous post involving some super cute pandas from Sale A Bration earlier this year.

I decided to use the beautiful Sea of Textures stamp set to re-create this sketch challenge. I am SO in love with how it turned out! I used Berry Burst for the frame and Octopus with a Crumb Cake card base, and whisper white scrap pieces.

I really love all the different nautical textures in this set, like the fish scales and fishing net. I also just can’t get enough of that octopus! I just think he’s so different and fun!

Be sure to watch my tutorial to see how this card came together, and scroll down to the big ol’ NEXT button to hop along to Lisa’s project. I love how she interpreted this sketch challenge! Thanks so much for hopping with us, and we will see you soon!

Crumb Cake Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Welcome, Kre8tors, to the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! I’m so excited to share an alternate project from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, Broadway Star. I absolutely adore the colors in this kit! Green, Pink, and Gold… what more could a girl ask for?!

This alternate card was a lot of fun to put together, and it was so quick! I used the envelope for the card mat by cutting it down to 4″ x 5-1/4″. I also used an additional piece of Basic Black cardstock for the card base, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

For the main embellishment, I took one of the Broadway Billboards and put two cakes on it, along with some of the sticker candles. It would look super cute if you added a few pearls to the cakes!

I stamped the Congrats sentiment in Lovely Lipstick, and then wrapped the bakers twine around the card mat twice and finished it off with a bow. I used a mini glue dot to hold the bow in place.

And finally for the inside, I added one of the Whisper White banner stickers along with a Gold Foil Hooray sticker. I just love how it shines!

I hope you enjoyed this alternate project today! Don’t forget to scroll down and watch my video tutorial for this card. Scroll all the way down to the pumpkin icon and click it to continue hopping with the rest of the demonstrators for this Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop!

Kre8tors June Blog Hop Featuring New Annual Catalog

Welcome to the June 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Today we are all about celebrating the amazing, brand new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog! This beautiful book is full of amazing ideas and products to make the next crafting year totally AWESOME! I am so excited to show you my project and I hope you hop around to all of the other talented demonstrators taking part in this month’s hop by clicking the Next button at the end of this post!

To check out the new catalog, be sure to visit my Catalogs page where you can download a pdf copy of this stunning 240 page book, chalk full of amazing ideas and inspiration!

For my project, I’m diving right in to the beautiful hostess exclusive set, Very Vintage. This stamp set is GORGEOUS! I love the vintage aspect, and the floral element is so pretty and delicate. It almost reminds me of something you would see on fine china.

Both of these cards are made in a similar layout, but the colors make them both VERY different! For the muted, brown and mint card I used Crumb Cake and Call Me Clover. For the bright, red and black card I used Basic Black and Lovely Lipstick.

Look on the page that features hostess exclusive stamp sets to see the sample that I CASE’d from the Annual Catalog. I didn’t have all of the same materials that were used in the catalog sample, but I think I did pretty darn well!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really like how the muted tones turned out on this card. I stamped off the Call Me Clover before stamping it onto my card mat to get a more mint green instead of the vibrant green it actually produces with full ink. There’s something about brown and mint green that I just love!

The red and black are also beautiful and, in my opinion, very elegant. It’s really hard for me to choose a favorite color scheme between these two because they both offer something very different. Which one is your favorite?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the sentiment, both the border stamp and the “You’re a blessing” stamp are from the Very Vintage set and make a very adorable accent to pop up this card. I also really love the little bee that comes with this set. He makes such a but accent and really blends in nicely to the muted background. I used the 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon along with the Pearls for a little bling on the muted card, and swapped out the Crumb Cake for the Whisper White ribbon on the Red and Black card.

Measurements:

Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap for sentiment

ICS Blog Hop Introducing the New In Colors

Hello and welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for June! So glad you could join us for this exciting hop to introduce the brand new 2018-2020 In Colors! There are so many wonderful demonstrators on this hop, so I hope you make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post and click that Next button to keep the hop going!

Introducing 5 brand new colors to the Stampin’ Up! Family. Here are the In Colors for 2018-2020!

I really wanted to play with one of the brand new stamp sets from the Annual Catalog too, so I decided to stamp this adorable octopus from the Sea of Textures stamp set in each of the new colors! I love how this stamp turns a clean and quick card into a fun set using each of the colors.

I was surprised just how bright the Pineapple Punch was! It shows up fantastically on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the Stamparatus to get the same placement for my sentiment on each card.

The Stamparatus made it so easy and quick to stamp these 5 cards. I can’t wait until Christmas card season arrives so that I can use this handy new tool to whip through all those cards!
