November 2018 Kre8tors Hop: Birthday!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I am on my way back from Stampin' Up OnStage in Orlando where I got a sneak peak of some great new upcoming products, but first it's time for another round of the Kre8tors Blog Hop!

This month's theme is all about birthday's!  I feel like so many of my friends have November birthday's so this is a perfect theme!  I wanted to choose something from the Annual Catalog to work with and our kits are the perfect choice with their variety of many sentiments to choose from.  

With the holiday's right around the corner, our kits make wonderful gifts for any skill leveled crafter!  I chose to work with the Lots of Happy Kit but wanted to alter it to make it my own with the addition of a few added products.



I started out with the Gold Foiled-Edged Cards and Envelopes package and with the Flirty Flamingo watercolor pencil from the kit, I created a light watercolor wash on the card.  Since this paper is not watercolor paper, I didn't want to go too heavy on the water to ensure the card didn't curl or pill.  Next, with the white plain background and striped background, I layered them together and adhered to the base.

The flowers are so easy to color with the watercolor pencils included and I filled them in and blended together with a Blender Pen.  I layered using pieces from the kit and created an altered project that fits right in with the original design of the kit!  Everything I used but the Foil-Edged card, Aqua Painter, and Blender Pen was from the kit.

Make sure to continue on with our hop to see all the other great projects.  Next up is Sandra Mastello showcasing her birthday project!  Her blog can be found HERE or by clicking the next button below!

Global Stamping Friends - Circle Themed!

Happy Friday everyone!  I am so very excited to leave for Stampin' Up Onstage in Orlando this weekend but first it's time for another round of the Global Stamping Friends hop!
Our hop theme is all about circles this month!  Circles can be added to any project in a multitude of ways but for my project, I knew I needed to use our wonderful circle punches!  We have a great variety of punch sizes to choose from but I focused on the 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" sized punches and the new Happiness Surrounds stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase!
I started my project off with a Blackberry Bliss card stock base and layered using Gray Granite card stock.  Next I used the Subtle embossing folder and embossed a piece of Petal Pink paper.
For the circles, I used the 1 3/4" punch and Blackberry Bliss card stock and using the 1 1/2" punch, I used the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and layered the circles together.  Using the Happiness Surrounds stamp set, I used Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla card stock and finished with an Artisan Pearl.

Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop - Christmas is Coming!

Happy Wednesday!  November is here and it's time for another round of the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  Because of Stampin' Up OnStage Convention during our normal hop time, we are coming to you early this month!

With Halloween over, the holiday season has finally descended upon us!  We are celebrating the season early by bringing you our Christmas is Coming theme.  For my project, I wanted to use the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set.
 
This project is all about traditional Christmas!  I started with a Tranquil Tide card stock base and layered using Merry Merlot card stock.  I love the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper!  It has soft accents of copper throughout the paper to give it some extra special shine.
I used the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" ribbon across the card and using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I used the Copper Foil Sheets for a circle background and Soft Suede card stock and coordinating ink finish off the sentiment.  This is a perfect card to make for sending to loved ones for the Holiday season as its simple and quick!

We Create Blog Hop 11 - Gratitude

Happy November!  I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by and how it's time for another monthly hop with the We Create Bloggers!
Image may contain: text
The month of November is all about giving thanks here in the US and that is exactly what we are doing for our projects this month, showing our gratitude!  Thank you cards are my favorite cards to create as you can really showcase your gratitude to someone by making them a handmade card.

I wanted to use a stamp I haven't used in a while for my project this month.  I found a similar design to this on Pinterest by Brandy Cox but I wanted to change it up for this hop.  The Love What You Do stamp set is perfect for creating thank you cards!
Gratitude cards can be in any color scheme you want and I like my cards to be bright and bold!  I started with a Bermuda Bay card stock base.  Using my Stamparatus, I used the hinge step technique and moving down the steps, I stamped the sentiment with Melon Mambo ink.  This card was so simple to make and would be great in a variety of color schemes!
For the flowers, I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in the petals with Lemon Lime Twist ink and stamped the thank you sentiment once more in Lemon Lime Twist.  The Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon is a perfect choice to tie everything together!
