Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2020 – Anniversary

Hi and welcome to Stamping Flair and the monthly Kre8tors Blog Hop. I’m a little bit sad because it’s the last time we’ll be hopping together for the time being. Thank you to Melissa Tennison who has worked so hard putting this blog hop together each month. I’ve had so much fun being a part of it. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

However, we still have all the fun of this month. So make sure you check out all the blogs for lots of inspiration. Our theme is anniversaries. Usually I would create a floral, feminine card but this time I created more with my partner in mind. So my card took on a more masculine feel. 

I started by sponging Granny Apple Green and Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel. Then I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Taking my Versamark ink pad, I roughly ran it down the ends of the cardstock and poured the Gold Embossing Powder over it. I brushed off any excess to achieve a streaky look then heat embossed it. 

The sentiment is the die from the Love You More set and it actually says ‘Love you more than’. I just used the words ‘ Love you’ which I die cut from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper

I hope you have been inspired by my creation. Please leave me a comment as I would love to hear from you. Next on our hop is Annette Elias. Click on the Next button to see her lovely project.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Masculine

Hi, 

I’m back for another blog hop this weekend and what fun I’m having getting to try out different products in the catalogue. The Kre8tors Blog Hop this month is all about masculine themed projects.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

I think our new catalogue has an extensive range of products to create with that would suit men’s cards, scrapbook pages, gift wrapping or gift items. One of these is the elegant World of good suite with it’s brass foil accents. The Designer Series Paper is just beautiful.

On my card I have combined the DSP with some cards from the coordinating World of Good Memories & More Card Pack. This pack comes with 50 double sided cards, 6 specialty cards with brass foil, 4 sticker sheets and at $19.25 it is great value. 

World of Good memories and more Stampin' Up handmade card

The only stamping I did on this card was the sentiment, letting the beautiful design of the paper shine. As a finishing touch, I added the Faux Suede trim and the Antiqued Corners which are part of the suite. 

Create a quick masculine card using the World of Good Memories & More card pack

Memories & More card packs make really quick and effective cards and are a great addition to your craft stash.

You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. All products that I’ve used on this card are listed at the end of this post.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Floral

Hi Friends,

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair today. You may be a regular here or if it’s your first time, I am so glad you are here. We’ve got some fun floral projects to share with you in the Kre8tors Blog Hop today.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

I couldn’t go past the Ornate Garden suite. As I thought about what to create, I realized I hadn’t really posted much with this suite so it was about time! The Specialty Designer Series Paper has pretty florals with some gold foil designs. Some sheets can even be coloured in, giving you many options. This card is very simple to recreate but looks quite elaborate. Those Ornate Frames are just so pretty you really can leave the elements of the suite to do the work for you. 

The Whisper White panel in the centre has been embossed with the Ornate Floral embossing folder which is so detailed and pretty. The Flirty Flamingo flowers have been separated from one of the Ornate Borders dies. By doing this, I was able to a lovely sprig for my card. 

The Ornate Garden suite is an early release from the new Annual Catalogue and is available for purchase right now. You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith in Australia. Products required to make this project are listed at the bottom of this post.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Spring

Hello and welcome to our Kre8tors Blog Hop this month. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. We have just finished Easter, however where you are, you still may be celebrating this wonderful occasion. I hope you have a lovely day. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Our theme this month is Spring. In Melbourne we are getting into chilly Autumn right now so I drew on some bright and cheery colours as we need all the cheering up we can get at the moment. The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has some fun colour choices as well as some pretty, fahion-inspired patterns.

Both these cards use the same measurements and a very simple layout. I used the flowers from the Easter Promise stamp set to create my focal image for the Lovely Lipstick card. I have used Stampin’ Blends to colour it in. If you haven’t tried Stampin’ Blends, I encourage you to give it a try. This is such a simple colouring tool to use and blending is very easy. A ribbon bow, sentiment and a quick card completed.

I created the same card with different paper and the Dressed to Impress stamp set and it just changes the look.  So how do high heel shoes and handbags tie in with the Spring theme? I thought of the Spring racing carnival in Melbourne where women love to dress up so that was my inspiration for this card. The sentiment is from the Label me Bold stamp set. I’ve been using this set increasingly as it has sentiments to suit different occasions and some nice background-style images.

Thank you for checking out my cards today. I hope you give these quick make cards a try and look forward to seeing you back soon. Click on the Next button to see what Annette Ball has in store for you.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Green Monochromatic

Hi stampers,

It’s great to have you stop by today. If you are following the hop, you will probably be coming from seeing Anastasia’s lovely project. If I’m your first stop, please go through all the blogs as we all have some great inspiration for this blog hop with an interesting theme of Green Monochromatic.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

In Stampin’ Up! we are spoiled with the range of colours we have to work with and for this challenge there was an abundance of greens to choose from. This is the green palette I chose. 

The first image I had was a ladies pretty dress and I chose the Wonderful Moments stamp set as it was one of the more recent sets I had got and I was keen to get it inked up.

I started off by stamping the little flowers from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set which can be earned free with a $90 order. 

I stamped the lady over the flowers as I felt this looked more natural than trying to stamp the flowers on top of the dress. I then coloured the dress with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. For the final touch, I added some sparkle from the Wink of Stella brush all over the skirt. It just makes this skirt look so pretty and sparkly. My 16 year old daughter, Cassidy, saw it and said she’d love to wear a dress like this.

The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper was a late addition and I think it is perfect for this hop with all the green hues in it. I die cut the panels with the Stitched Rectangle dies. For the Whisper White embossed panel, I extended the die by partially die cutting and then turning and realigning to cut the rest of the panel. This gives me a longer panel than the actual die size.

The additional flowers are from one of my favourites in the Mini Catalogue – the Botanical Prints Product Medley. I coloured and die cut 2 of the bouquets, cutting one in sections to fit over the sentiment. This would make a lovely graduation card.

I hope you have been inspired by my card to try out some monochromatic projects and would love for you to leave me a comment. All products I have used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love the opportunity to help you along your creative journey.
