March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I simply adored this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. It was SO adorable with a shabby-chic and vintage vibe. I only made one of the two designs from this month’s kit, and fell in love right away! I wanted to share a few photos of the card I created, and a quick time-lapse video from putting together this card and envelope.

The colors from this month’s kit were so well coordinated, as it is with all of Stampin’ Up!’s products. I really love the pink and purple colors together mixed with the gorgeous neutrals of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. These colors really complimented the project.

The card was very simple to put together. I used the included stamps for the corner images on the pink background as well as the sentiments on both the card and the envelope. (The card is on the right, envelope is on the left.) The floral and leaf images were already printed on paper. All I had to do was pop them out and glue them down! This kit also included some beautiful Fresh Fig ribbon and pearl embellishments.

I love how easy it is to have a monthly kit delivered to my mailbox. Every month, I have at least 8 projects that I can create quickly and share with my family and friends. The kit includes everything I need to make beautifully coordinated cards or other fun projects. Plus, signing up for a 3-month or longer subscription in March also earns Sale-A-Bration rewards! So it’s a perfect time to get started with this amazing kit!

To learn more, head over to my Paper Pumpkin site, or contact me to talk one on one about how you can use this amazing subscription to jump start your monthly creativity escape!

March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop with Amazing You

It’s that time again, time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Yay! This month’s theme is Birthdays and I think this project is a PERFECT birthday card/gift because it holds a GIFT CARD! And bonus, it’s a fun fold card with a Double Slider! Woot! I’m so excited to be hopping once again with so many talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! Be sure to click the Next button at the bottom of this blog post to hop along!

I knew I wanted to use two Sale-A-Bration sets on this card, Lots of Lavender and of course Amazing You (for the Birthday portion of the card.) I also knew I wanted to make a Double Slider card. The last one I made was SO long ago, I needed to find some newer dimensions. So I took to YouTube and found Julie Davison’s tutorial. I used her dimensions, and made a few of my own alterations to turn this into a gift card holder.

I made two different color versions. The one featured in my coordinating YouTube tutorial features Berry Burst and Smoky Slate. I LOVE this color combination so much! I also threw in a few pops of Old Olive for the leaves and one of the glitter enamel dots.

The Let’s Celebrate and Amazing You sentiments came from the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and the floral images on the front of the card came from the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I’m so happy with how these cards turned out! What color is your favorite? Don’t forget to pick up these Sale-A-Bration stamps for FREE with a qualifying purchase before they retire! March 31st, or while supplies last!

Smoky Slate Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″, & 8-1/4″

ICS Blog Hop Last Chance SAB

Hello and welcome to the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Last Chance Sale-A-Bration, because this awesome promotion ends on March 31st! I’m using the Happy Wishes Level 2 set on this awesome Shutter Card! Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects in this month’s hop by using the Next button at the bottom of this post.

This was my first time making a shutter card, and I LOVE it! It’s so much fun to make a card with such a different twist. I couldn’t believe how simple this technique was, I want to make loads more!

I started this card by stamping the “best” stamp from the Happy Wishes set in Crumb Cake and then I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the leaves, dots, and flowers. I adhered that to a Crumb Cake oval, and then added some ribbon loops behind with the Finely Woven Ribbon.

I stamped the “wishes” stamp on Whisper White and then cut that out with a small circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. This card came together so quick once I cut all the pieces. To see more details, check out my video that has all the instructions for you to make a shutter card of your own!

Measurements:

Powder Pink Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 2-1/8″ & 6-3/8″
Tranquil Tide Banners (x2): 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″, score @ 1/2″
DSP Outside Panels (x2): 1-7/8″ x 5-1/4″
DSP Inside Panel Mat: 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Inside Panel Base: 3″ x 5-1/2″
Scraps: Crumb Cake, Whisper White

Hanging Banners Sketch with Daisy Delight

I love challenges and have been trying so many different ideas in my VIP group. We have been doing sketch challenges which are so much fun because I get to see my VIP’s ideas unfold. There are so many different ideas and possibilities when it comes to sketches. I created the Hanging Banners sketch with the Daisy Delight Bundle, which includes a coordinating punch, in mind. It’s simple, but still so much fun for a quick card. The sentiment can easily be left off this card right up until it’s ready to be gifted, making it a perfect all occasion card. I’m so excited to announce which one of my VIP’s won this challenge, so let’s get to it!

I used the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Daisy Delight suite of products in the annual catalog for this challenge card. I really love how the Gold Glimmer Paper accents the Tranquil Tide colors. I used both Cardstock and the Finely Woven Ribbon on this card. I love how the colors are perfect matches!

The inspiration for this challenge came from a few card designs I saw on Pinterest. I love how simple and fun the banners are hanging from the off-set circle.

The winner of this challenge was one of my downlines, Diane Marra! Her card is so lovely, I absolutely adore the DSP with flecks of gold foil! She changed the alignment to create a portrait card instead of landscape, and I just adore how it turned out!

Whether you are stamping on the circle, or creating a 3D item to pop out, this fun sketch works well for so many different stamp sets! I encourage you to give this sketch a try and share your projects with me! You can post on social media and use #mkre8tionssketchchallenge or tag me with @mkre8tions so that I can see your fun projects!

Measurements:

Very Vanilla Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Very Vanilla for Daisies (x2): Approx. 4″ x 5″
Tranquil Tide Circle: Approx. 3″ x 3″
Delightful Daisy DSP: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Strip: 3/4″ x 5-1/2″
Gold Glimmer Banners (x2): 3/4″ x 2″
