May 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop Goodbye Occasions Catalog


Welcome!
It's already time for another Kre8tors Blog Hop.  This month, we are saying goodbye to the Occasions Catalog.  Check out all of the wonderful cards from around the world.  I have the list of demonstrators with their links at the bottom of this blog.  First, let's check out my card.

 

 
I have a confession to make........I cased most of this card from Sue Miller......yes, I made some changes, but the basic design is hers.  I have been super busy.......out of town guests.....grandson's birthday party out of town.......granddaughter's softball games.......my workshops......AKC hunt tests with my husband and chocolate lab.....plus everyday life!  Anyhow, the deadline for this blog hop quickly approached.  I knew what sets I wanted to use (Magical Day Bundle and Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle).  I knew it was going to be a card for my granddaughter's 10th birthday.....she loves unicorns and rainbows.  I knew it had to be a fancy fold.....my grandchildren expect WOW! cards from me!  Then.......inspiration left!   I turned to Pinterest!  I found Sue's card.  I made color changes......my rainbow and unicorn are brighter.  I shifted things slightly.  I used embossing paste combined with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter for the clouds, and I changed the first sentiment.  I made it my own!  :)
 

 
Here are the details:
  • Soft Sky Cardstock (4-1/4" X 11", scored at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2") and Whisper White (4-1/4" X 11", scored at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2"), use the Rainbow Builder Framelits to cut off the top of each piece to look like clouds.
  • I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Embossing Paste combined with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter to create the background of clouds on the Soft Sky Cardstock.
  • I cut the rainbow with the following cardstock:  Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, and Perfect Plum.  I stamped the unicorn with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored his mane and tail with the coordinating Stampin' Write Markers.
  • The Hope Your Day Is Magical sentiment is from the Magical Day Stamp Set.  The second sentiment is from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.  I stamped the sun with Daffodil Delight Ink.

 
  • Pop up the sun and unicorn with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 
That's all for today!  The items used for this card are shown at the very end.
