October 2018 Kreators Blog Hop: Autumn Color

I don’t know about you, but this is definitely my favorite time of year. It is also one of the busiest for me. As a result, I have been MIA for quite some time. My apologies!! However, I am once again participating the the Kreators Blog Hop. I am so happy to be in this blog hop with so many talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrators!

October 2018 Autumn Color Challenge

October 2018 Color Challenge - Autumn

This month, we are inspired by this beautiful photo and have been challenged to create projects using at least three out of four colors featured in the photo. The four colors represented in the photo are:  Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Gray Granite. Check out what I came up with and then hop to the next person in the list below.

Luminaria Card

In the Southwest, it is a Christmas tradition to decorate with Lumarias. A Luminaria is a Christmas lantern consisting of a votive candle set in a small paper bag weighted with sand and typically placed with others along a driveway, sidewalk, or rooftop as a holiday decoration. Now days, there is a less dangerous way to do this by using battery operated candles. Either way, they are beautiful! Last weekend, I participated in a fundraiser for cancer research in honor of a team member who recently passed away. For one of my projects, I came up with a Fall Luminaria card. I decided it would be fun to do one for this challenge as well. I took several pictures of card, which two sided. Unfortunately, my camera does not shoe the real WOW factor of this card. In real like, it is very pretty.

For this hop, I chose to use Soft Suede, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie. When you compare my project to the photo above, they look quite different. The photo is very vibrant, while my card represents these colors in a muted way. I think both are really pretty but have a very different vibe. However, let me know what YOU think. 🙂

If you would like the PDF for how I made this card, please contact me and I will be glad to send it to you! Here is a list of what I used for this project.

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
