It's time for the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop for February and this month we are focusing on the amazing Free products you can earn during Sale-a-bration. Visit blogs from all over the world featuring amazing projects to inspire you created by talented demonstrators using Stampin' Up! products.
I decided to showcase the often overlooked Mixed Medallions Card Kit (item #147183) which contains supplies to create 8 beautiful trifold cards plus envelopes. You can choose to create these wonderful cards as shown in the directions or you can do as I did, and have a little fun embellishing to make your own unique creations.
As you can see, there are a variety of cute embellishments provided that are easy to pop out and attach to the cards to decorate. There is also a variety of sentiments, not just in English but also in German and French. Putting these cards together is a fun and stress-free way to spend an afternoon.
I just love the color combination for this kit which includes Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand and White. I decided to add a little bling for a little extra sparkle.
With the Berry Burst card base, I added a layer of the Turquoise Glimmer paper from the Myths & Magic 6"x6" Glimmer Paper Pack (item #145601) using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch (item 3119861) under the Calypso Coral Scalloped circle die cut and the sentiment from the kit. I also used the Tree Builder Punch item #138295) to punch out a the small flower from the Turquoise Glimmer Paper and attached it to the Calypso Coral die cut from the kit with a glue dot.
I embellished the center of the flower with a small Basic Pearl (item # for a touch of bling and added it to the card front. I added two of the flower die cut shapes from the kit and embellished the center of the Sahara Sand flower with a Basic Pearl (item #144219)that I colored using the Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blend Marker (item #144580). I love how it coordinated perfectly with the Turquoise Glimmer paper and finished off the flower.
As you can see, I didn't need to add a lot to give the card a different look and it didn't take a lot of time to complete. Don't you just love creating beautiful cards that are so simple to put together.
When it came to embellishing the Sahara Sand Card, I wanted something a little more elegant and understated. For this card, I decided to use the Gold Foil (item #132622) and I used the 1 1/8" Scallop Circle (item #146138) which is a new punch from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. I attached it to the center of the card with glue dots and then layered the sentiment for the kit on top using Mini Dimensions (item #144108).
I also punched out a small flower from the Gold Foil, once again using the Tree Builder Punch. Can you tell that I love using punches? They are great for creating quick, simple yet beautiful cards.
The other flowers were created from the die cuts in the kit and I embellished the centers of two of the flowers with Basic Rhinestones (item #144220). Once again, with just a few simple supplies, I was able to dress up this tri-fold card and transform it into something different.
