Stampin Dreams Blog Hop: Beginner, Casual, Avid

Welcome to the January Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Our Theme this month is Beginner, Casual, Avid. You are currently visiting Jan Musselman from the USA. I hope you enjoy the projects I chose to share with you today. We were challenged to show you our take on the three different types of stampers/crafters.

So the 1st type as you may already know is
Beginner. Someone who is new to stamping will want a simple design that when they have finished will make them say, "I made that"  with a sense of accomplishment. My examples for these projects use the Piece of Cake stamp set and coordinating Cake Builder Punch.
Card Base - Gray Granite Cardstock
Card Front - Whisper White Cardstock
Die Cuts - Thick Whisper White
Happy Birthday - Gray Granite Ink
Piece of Cake Die Cuts - Tuxedo Black

The 2nd type is the Casual Stamper. Enjoys going to the workshops once a month. Likes to learn new techniques. I did a stepped up
version of the 1st project.

Card Front Mat - Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
Piece of Cake Die Cut Mat - Vellum Cardstock
Colored the Die Cuts with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends. Added some Cherry Cobbler colored Rhinestones.

The 3rd type is the Avid Stamper. This project has built upon both of the previous projects. I have added some Vellum Leaves and some Crystal Glimmer Paper Berry Branches.

I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day.  Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!

2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Occasions/Sale-A-Bration Tic Tac Toe

Welcome to the 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who Love What we do and Share what we love. This months theme is all about the new Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs. And to make things even more fun we are playing Tic Tac Toe.

I chose the left vertical line. My project needed to be a 3D Item that has Heat Embossing and Sequins. My 1st choice of the Sale-A-Bration items was the Hello Cupcake stamp set. It is just adorable.

I started off with a treat holder. I wanted to try the cute little gift bag with a flap closure. I thought it would be fun to put some Strawberries & Cream Lindor Truffles in it. My Great Grand Daughter is going to love this. I could have stopped right there, but, I didn't.

I was cruising through some of my favorite blogs when I saw the sketch on Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge Blog that would be perfect for the Hello Cupcake stamp set.

So I decide to make a card to go with my Treat Holder.  This is a top folding card. So the Crumb Cake Base is 4 1/4" x 11, scored at 5 1/2". The Card Front is a piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock. The large Stitched Rectangle is cut from All My Love DSP. The small Stitched Rectangle is Lovely Lipstick Cardstock. Heat Emboss the sentiment with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Cut a Stitched Shapes Framelit Circle from Vellum Cardstock.
Cupcake Bottom - Stamped with Crumb Cake Ink on Whisper White.
Cake - Crushed Curry Ink stamped on Whisper White.
Icing - Flirty Flamingo Ink stamped on Whisper White.
Heart Pick - Lovely Lipstick Ink on Whisper White.
Sprinkles - Lovely Lipstick Ink. ( Heat Emboss all ink on the Cupcake pieces) Pop up the Cupcake on the Vellum Stitched Circle with Dimensionals. Add Iridescent Sequins.

The Mini Gift Bag Treat Holder with a Flap closure is not a new idea. There are many Tutorials out there. I wanted something that would hold a few Strawberry Lindor Truffles. This was the one I settled on. The one I chose came from Scrap Sprinkle Crop. Then added some Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and some All My Love DSP. Heat Embossed the sentiment with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Then finished with a few Iridescent Sequins. I managed to get 3 Truffles into it.

Then I thought it should have been a Cupcake Holder. So, I made one of those too. LOL. Again, there are many tutorials for cupcake holders. I found one that was small, for homemade cupcakes, and wouldn't you know it, I did not bookmark it and now it cannot be found. I apologize, If you see this post please contact me so that I can give you credit for this adorable box. 

So essentially I wound up with a suite of items based on the Sale-A-Bration Hello Cupcake stamp set.
There is also a new Gift Card Holder, but that will wait for another day.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what is possible with the Hello Cupcake stamp set and want to earn this set yourself. All it takes is a $50 purchase (before tax & shipping).  Now it is time to wander on to the next blog. I a sure Sandra has something great to show you.

Extraordinary Hop - Sale-a-bration / Spring/Summer & Occassions

Welcome to the GSF Extraordinary - Sale-a-bration / Spring/Summer & Occassion's Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from all over the world who Love what we do and Share what we love.

The card I am sharing with you today is one of three FREE card kits that you can receive with the purchase of the Meant To Be Bundle. The Meant To Be stamp set and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits can be purchased as a Bundle with a savings of 10%. And with that purchase you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product as well. How sweet is that?

I started off by creating a background by stamping a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used the smaller Heart stamps in the Meant To Be Bundle and the Forever Lovely Bundle. I used Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo inks and stamped off (Stamp on scrap paper 1st) occasionally to achieve different shades of these colors. I die cut the Crumb Cake Rectangle with the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I stamped the "Happy Valentine's Day" with Lovely Lipstick. Next I stamped the larger Floral Heart in Flirty Flaming and die cut it with the coordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelit heart. The smaller Heart is die cut from the All My Love DSP. There are 2 different sized hearts that you can die cut directly. That cute little die has stitching and a scalloped edge too. Then I also die cut the Heart Spray in the new Sale-A-Bration Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. I stamped the Inside Layer (another 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White Cardstock piece) sentiment with Lovely Lipstick Ink. That sentiment is from Forever Lovely stamp set. I adhered the Card Front to the Lovely Lipstick card base with Liquid Glue. I adhered the Inside Layer to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue. I adhered the Crumb Cake Stitched Rectangle to the Card Front with Liquid Glue too. Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen I adhered the Heart Spray to the Stitched Rectangle. The hearts are popped up on Mini Dimensionals. The last item is an Iridescent Sequin.

Ok let me show you the group shot of the Free Card/3D Kits you can receive if you purchase the
Meant To Be Bundle. 2 Beautiful cards and a Treat Holder. You can see the details of this offer by clicking on the link Here.
