Colour Combo Blog Hop: March 2020

Hi Everyone! I’m so happy to be able to participate in this monthly Colour Combo Block Hop! It helps me to see colors that I wouldn’t normally use working together.

To create the pattern on my stitched rectangles I used a baby wipe wrapped around a clear block. I dotted ink along the edge of baby wipe and brushed it over whisper white cardstock. Then I die cut and arranged them on my card front. I love this technique for when I can’t find DSP that coordinates with my project.

Colour Combo Blog Hop: January 2020

Welcome to the first Colour Combo Blog Hop of the new year! Thank you so much for joining us this month. If you’ve come here from Sandra’s blog make sure you continue on the hop and leave love with each creator.

I’ve been trying to participate in as many challenges and blog hops as I can to help build traffic to my blog, but mostly to help me use my stash of supplies! I’ve always been a craft collector and more recently I’ve started to be more of a crafter!

I created this card using a brand new bundle from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog called So Sentimental Bundle. The stamp set has a bunch of really great sentiments and the dies (called Stitched So Sweetly Dies) have the stitched scallop rectangles and the stitched labels. I know that I will be using this stamp set and these dies for so many cards!

Below is the list of all the items I used to create this card! If you click on one it will take you to my store. If you don’t already have a demonstrator in the US I would be delighted to help you.

To Every Season: Fall

Welcome to the 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be joining this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators for my first blog hop with them. This month’s theme is Fall.

I used the To Every Season Bundle to create my fun fall themed card. Below you will see all of the products that I’ve used today including the Basic Patterned Masks I used to create the ombré polka dot background. I love these masks for creating unique coordinating backgrounds. Stampin’ Up! does an awesome job creating coordinating products for us to create with, but sometimes a custom color creation is necessary…enter the Basic Patterned Masks or the Pretty Party Decorative Masks!

I used Crushed Curry, Mango Melody, And Pumpkin Pie ink to make these polka dots pop! I also added a little Wink of Stella to a few of the dots because I can’t have a card without sparkle. I can definitely see more cards with this technique in my future.

Thank you for hopping to my site and checking out my creation! If you saw something you love, please contact your demonstrator to place your order. If you don’t have a demonstrator and you are located in the US, I would love to help you! Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments!

World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day! Join me and other crafters around the world in card making to prepare for the first annual Card Sending Week led by Stampin’ Up!

I started making these cards when I saw them in our Stampin’ Success magazine sent to all demonstrators. I had all of the items they used and I thought these would be great cards to send to all of my crafty friends!

I made 10 cards in total and it took me several months to finish my project even though it probably only took a few hours! I’ll be sending them out next week!

Paper Pumpkin: June Kit

I know I said the next project I would share would be my Colour Combo Blog Hop submission, but I really wanted to say something about Paper Pumpkin! I have to admit I’m hot and cold on Paper Pumpkin. Some months I love the kit the way it is intended to be create and others the kit/box floats around my craft room unloved.

The June kit was one of the kits that I just didn’t know what to do with. I started scrolling one of my favorite #Hashtags on Instagram and was blown away by the crafters who found a way to create with the contents of the June kit!

That #Hashtag I love so much is #artisandesignteam! It’s where all of the carefully hand selected Artisan Design Team Members creations can be found all on one screen!

I CASE’d Lauren Alarid’s A2 cards and couldn’t be happier that I had this kit on hand! I’m even thinking about ordering a refill so I can CASE all the other alternative projects I am seeing posted by other talented crafters!

I added the Subtle 3D embossing texture to both cards and changed the embellishment on the Coastal Cabana card, but otherwise they are exactly the same. I’m so grateful for the Artisan Design Team for sharing their creativity!
