Kre8tors Blog Hop: Spring Color Challenge


Welcome to April's Kre8tors Blog Hop! As you hop through the list of blogs, you will find projects from Stampin' Up! demonstrators from various countries with different levels of experience, sharing what we love - creating!  This month we are featuring a color challenge.  At the end of my post you will find the full list of participants.  Just click on the 'next' button to continue on the hop.


I used the Needle & Thread Bundle. This bundle immediately caught my eye in the Occasions catalog.  Long before I discovered stamping, I did a lot of needle work (sewing, embroidery, cross stitch, etc.).  So this bundle was a must-have addition to my stamp collection.

I am in love with the color combination Melissa gave us this month!  It is perfect for the flowers in this bundle.

Even though my card looks pretty plain at first glance, there is actually a lot going on.  I used the die set to create an stitched focal center that is framed with a Highland Heather frame cut with the Rectangle Stitched dies.


I then stamped various flowers and leaves from the stamp set using the color combination to create a floral cluster for the bottom corner of the frame.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray ink on Gray Granite cardstock.  Of course every card I make needs just a little bling so I added a few (or more) rhinestones to finish it off.

Dog Builder Punch Silhouette and Negative


A few days ago I was playing with using punches and dies without the coordinating stamp sets. These are the first two cards I made (and my favorites!).  They were so quick to put together.


For the first card, I simple punched out the dog Basic Black cardstock and adhered him to a Crumb Cake circle.  The heart was punched from Read Red cardstock and I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add a little shimmer.  I wanted something more than a plain background so I used the Tufted Embossing Folder to add texture.


For the second card I die cut a circle around the punched shapes.  It is attached to a crumb cake circle with Dimensionals so that the background texture doesn't show through.  I used a sentiment from All Things Thanks and stamped it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  It is punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Here are the other cards I made with the same silhouette & negative idea:


These cards use the Tea Time Framelits.  These dies are not currently available but will be with the release of the new catalog on June 4th.  I used the Share What You Love DSP and Tea Together Stamp Set.

For the last pair of cards I used the Tropical Chic Bundle and Tropical Escape DSP.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I truly appreciate each and every visit!

Colour Combo Blog Hop


Welcome to this month's Colour Combo Blog Hop! As you progress through this hop you will see projects made by Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world. Every project uses this month's color combination: Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. I love this soft pastel combination. It's perfect for spring and Easter projects.


I decided to use the Tropic Chic bundle for this card.  I normally use bright, bold colors with this set, but decided to see how it would look with this soft combination. I used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz as the main colors and saved So Saffron for the more background elements. I'm very happy with how this card turned out.


This card has lots of dimension to it!  The fern-like leaves were die cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  They are glued to the back of the stitched So Saffron circle and then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  This makes them stand off of the card a little bit.  The flowers were stamped in Blushing Bride and the leaf in Pear Pizzazz before cutting with the coordinating dies. The flowers were attached to the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I finished off the card by adding a few small rhinestones for just a little bling.
