April 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Spring Color Challenge

Welcome to the Kre8tors Blog Hop. As usual, I am excited to be a part of this creative group of demonstrators! Our theme for this month is “Spring Color Challenge”.

This beautiful picture is the inspiration for this month’s challenge.

For the challenge, we were to use at least 3 of the following colors from the picture. The colors are:

Granny Apple Green
Daffodils Delight
Mango Melody
Highland Heather
Gray Granite

My Project

I decided to use Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather. I really love these colors! I made two variations of this card for the hop. I love how both of them turned out. The stamp set is one of my favorites from the occasions catalog called All that You Are. I stamped the large flower in stazon on whisper white card stock. Using wink of Stella I watercolored the flower in Daffodil Delight, the leaves in Granny Apple Green and the small flowers in Gorgeous Grape. I took a close-up of the flower and hopefully you can see the shine and sparkle from the wink of Stella. The watercolor panel was then glued to a piece of highland Heather card stock. Both panels were cut using the rectangle framlits from the occasion‘s catalog. For the card base, I used thick whisper white and covered the entire front with the Gingham Gala DSP in Highland Heather with the small checks facing up. Then, I adhered the flower panel at an angle to the card with dimensionals. The Happy birthday was stamped in Granny Apple green and cut out using the 1 3/8 circle punch I sponged around the edge of the circle in Granny Apple Green as well. The Happy birthday was attached to the top left corner. The large butterfly is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I punched it out with the matching butterfly duets punch, and colored it in wink of Stella using Daffidil Delight and Granny Apple Green ink. It was adhered to the bottom right corner with a dimensionals.

For my next project, Imdid something similar but this time I Stamped the flower with Stazon on Highland Heather cardstock. I used a chalk marker to define the lines in some of the areas. I colored the leaves with green, the buds in yellow and added a touch id Gorgeous Grape to the small flowers. I added Wink of Stella to all the images. I love how it soaked into the paper and darkened the large flower! I layered this panel on a piece of Highland Highland Heather embossed with the country floral embossing folder.

Sale-a-brate the Occasion in 2019

Hello crafty peeps!

The Occasions catalog is here! It is chock full of new products and ideas just in time for many of the events and holidays that happen around this time of year. In fact, did you know that Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day hold the title for the highest number of store bought greeting cards? It’s true! My question is why buy a mass-produced card that can be quite pricey when you can make your own personal cards and gifts to give to others? It is more meaningful, because it is handmade from you! In addition to all the great new products to choose from, they coordinate wonderfully with items from the current annual catalog as well. Then, it gets even better because you can earn FREE items from the Sale-a-bration brochure. Stampin’ Up goes all out January through March. You can earn a LOT of free stuff during this time of year. 

Check out all the fun videos below and then be sure to attend my catalog tours and Facebook Live Events.

July 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Card Sketch Challenge

Hello!

Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month, the theme is a card sketch challenge. The object is to create samples that have the elements of the sketch, while adding our own interpretation.

Here is the card sketch for the month of July.

Picture of card in portrait orientation. There is a standard card base (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) with a slightly smaller layer.. Top middle is a square, there is a strip near the bottom of the square in portrait orientation that is slightly wider than the square. It has banner tail on the right end. On top of this strip and on the bottom right of the square, thee is a starburst (or circle).

I am so excited to be a part of this creative group of Demonstrators. I hope you will be inspired by all the unique creations! My card samples feature some new products and new colors from the annual catalog, along with some old faves.

My “Guy” Card

I have a lot of trouble making cards for men. This card was inspired by my husband, so I will be giving it to him. He is a very creative person and really has great ideas. Let me know what you think.

I stamped on a paper bag using the Hardwood background stamp. I like the rustic look. I used the boots from the Country Livin’ stamp set and the “Love You” comes from the Enjoy Life stamp set. I used Soft Suede for all the stamping and sponging. I also used the masking tape technique on the square and the banner. If you don’t know about this technique, it is very easy and a lot of fun. If you want to learn how, join me TODAY – Sunday, July 8, at 2 PM central time on my Facebook page, Wallflower Greetings
