February 2019 KRE8TORS Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us for another Kre8tors Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Valentines/Love.  I hope you hop along to all of the great projects!  My cards are for my grandchildren's Velentine's Day Cards and feature the Hey Love Cling Stamp Set!  The skunk is my favorite......I think he's so stinkin' cute!

I created a pop out strip of hearts for the inside.  My grandkids like a little movement on the card that I give them.

Now, before I go on to the details, I want to show you a different version of this card.  I used Stampin' Blends to color the skunk.  The first one, I used Basic Black Dark and Smoky Slate Dark.  The hearts were colored with Real Red Dark.  The next card, I used Basic Black Dark and Light for the skunk.  It's a little hard to see the skunk's adorable face with total black.  What do you think?

Here are the details:
  • Let's start with the inside of the card......Basic Black Cardstock Base (8-1/2" X 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4") and Whisper White (8" X 5", scored at 4")
  • To attach the white smoothly to the black, put adhesive on 3 sides of the white away from the fold.
  • Align the score lines, centering the white piece.
  • Attach the side with adhesive.  Then, fold white cardstock and put adhesive on the 3 sides away from the score line.
  • Next, fold the black cardstock over, pressing onto the white starting at the score line and pressing to the outside of the card.
  • Next, take a piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper 1-1/2" X 8-1/2".  Score it at 2-1/8", 4-1/4", and 6-3/8".  If you are using a Stampin' Up! trimmer, it is best to score it at 2-1/8" and 4-1/4" from one end.  Then, flip it to the other end and score at 2-1/8".  Fold paper as shown.

  • Attach strip to inside, first on one side then, the other side.  Stamp the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • Using the Support Ribbon Framelits, cut hearts out with Real Red Cardstock.  Attach to strip.

  • Now, for the card front.  Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (4" X 5-1/4")
  • Using the Banner Triple Punch, create banners with the following cardstock:  Whisper White (2" X 3-3/4"), Real Red (2" X 5"), and Basic Black (1-1/2" X 4-3/4")
  • Stamp the skunk and sentiment from the Hey Love Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Color as desired with Stampin' Blends.  Embellish with a piece of Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon.

Kathy, I absolutely love how you've shown us the INSIDE of your card and that you've given it so much love! That fun pop up band is so awesome! I like the lighter colored skunk for sure. :) Thanks so much for hopping with us and sharing your fantastic project!

Wonderful card design. The little skunk is so cute and I just love the bold combination of red, white and black. :)
