Sun Prints - Kre8tors Blog Hop/April 2022 - Free For All

 Here is a sneak peak of a few cards made with the new Sun Prints Suite for our Kre8tors Blog Hop this month since the theme is Free For All and anything goes!

I chose this suite to show off for the Blog Hop because this new paper is just beautiful and deserves a feature!!  I will be showing off some of my favorite items from the new catalog over the next two weeks.

 Be sure to check out all of the Kre8tors this month to see what they have made to show off for you. Since the theme is Free for All you get to see all sorts of new ideas as we all share our cards for you.  All of the participating blogger's links are at the end of my post.

Brewed for You - Just Blend It OSAT Blog Hop

 By the title of this post you would think that we are going to learn how to make some craft beer today!  Well, we will not be making beer - but I will be using the new Brewed for You and my Blending Brushes to make some fun cards for you friends and family that enjoy a cold beer.

So these beers were finally crafted by using several different ink colors blended together to show you one of the many ways we can use blending as a technique -  which is what this month's One Stamp at a Time blog hop is all about.

We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, here to show you some great examples of how we have used blending to create some cards and 3D items.  The links to other talented demonstrator's creations will be at the end of my post.  

I created two cards and a gift card holder using a new set that will be available on May 1st. with a beer theme.  I was excited about this set because all of the men in my family are really into craft beers.  Going to a local brewery and tasting a flight of crafted beers is a fun night out for all of us.

Ranunculus Romance - OSAT Blooms Blog Hop

 Spring is just around the corner, and even though nothing is blooming yet here in Ohio (no lie, it is snowing as I type this!) - things are blooming all over my desk as I work on my spring cards. 

I am joining the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop today for their March Blooms Blog Hop.
All of the links to the other creative card makers will be at the bottom of my post.
I chose the Ranunculus Romance Bundle to make my Card and 3D project for my entry into the hop.
I love these flowers but hate their name!!  It is too hard to pronounce and spell!!  But I love all the tight layers of pedals on these beautiful flowers.

Enchanted St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

 Welcome to my magical little corner where we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day today in my 

Enchanted Leprechaun Grove!!

I am joining a fabulous group of ladies led by Debbee of Debbee's Buzz, for a fun St. Patrick's Day Tablescape Hop.  All of the links and sneak peek photos are at the end of this post.

I love how St. Patrick's Day is such a fun celebration even for those who are not Irish and just want to pretend to be for the day!

Kre8tors Blog Hop - February 2022 Theme: Sale-A-Bration

 Welcome to Corner of Plaid and Paisley where we are frolicking through the meadow using the Catching Butterflies stamp set!!

This is all for the Kre8tors Blog Hop - the February Theme is anything from Sale-A-Bration!

We want to remind everyone that there is only a short amount of time left with this sale and the chance to get this Catching Butterflies stamp set free with a $50 purchase.  

I used another Sale-A-Bration item to make the majority of this card, the Sunshine & Rainbows 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. 

How fun is a sky full of hearts!! 

I fussy cut the little girl and her butterflies.  I also stamped her dress on the patterned paper and fussy cut the dress out and layered it over the top of her plain dress.  I colored her body and hair using the new Skin Tone Stampin' Blends plus just a bit of Cinnamon Cider for hair highlight.

There are a variety of dies used here:

Clouds - Give it a Whirl Dies

Sentiment - All Dressed Up Dies Set

Flowers - Pierced Blooms Die Set

And don't forget dress up your envelope !!  It is so fun to get mail that has some excitement on the envelope!

Take some time to peek at what the other blogger's have come up with for their Sale a-bration cards.  There are some more great ideas on how to use those items you can still get for free with purchase until the end of February!!  Up next is Amy!
