Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop

Hello Friends! Today some demonstrators taking Kylie’s Demonstrator Training are participating on a blog hop; there is no specific theme for this hop, but I assure you it will be full of great projects and ideas that will inspire you. 


As usual, I recommend that you have a pen and paper as you go thru the blog hop, so that you can jot down all the different products that you like and start building your shopping list.


I decided to share a Halloween Card as soon we will be celebrating Halloween and therefore we need to get ready.. I enjoy making cards for this holiday, and this year Stampin’ Up! designed a lot of cute products for Halloween projects, so I am super excited to play with some of these products to create Halloween cards.


The card that I am showing here is featuring the Toil and Trouble designer series paper and I paired it with foxy friends stamp set as well as the fox builder punch. Is he not the cutest raccoon disguised as a witch?


Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a cute halloween card, where I show you tips and tricks for designing cards using Stampin Up's Toil and Trouble DSP! You‘ll love how quick and easy this is to make! www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #handmadecards #friendshipcards #Halloweencards


The witch hat was fussy cut from the designer series paper, however you could also die cut it using the cauldron framelits die from this suite! there are several images on the Toil and Trouble DSP that can be cut with the framelits set. 


I used the Spooky Bats Punch to get those cute bats on this card, and the star is from the takeout framelits dies. You can see more details from the close up picture below.

And as usual I added wink of stella to some elements of the card to highlight them, in this card I added it to the bats and the star.


The sentiment is from the itty bitty greetings, in case you were wondering 🙂

Card making made easy for Halloween with Toil and Trouble Suite

Hello Friends! Do you make Halloween cards?? I love to make this type of cards! and October is the month to make Halloween cards, as well as treat holders! During this month I will be posting several projects for Halloween, so make sure to keep visiting my blog 🙂


The card I am showing today features the Toil and Trouble designer series paper!! I got to be honest but this year Stampin’ Up! did fabulous work designing the Halloween products! You will fall in love with all the different products available for this holiday!


The Toil and Trouble designer series paper has lots of images that can be fussy cut or even better can be die cut with the Cauldron Framelits Dies! so if you don’t like fussy cutting you can use the framelits from this suite to cut several of the images.. 


There are some images that does not have dies to cut, however I love watching TV on a relaxing afternoon and fussy cut several of the images all at once, so that next time I am on my crafting room I can just put my mind into the designing of my cards or just assembling cards if I am doing multiples of the same.. so I find that fussy cutting is actually relaxing.. 🙂

The Pumpkins in the designer series paper do not have framelits to die cut them, so all of these were fussy cut, the witch hat does have a framelit, however I fussy cut it as well 😉


Now did you see the bats on this card??? You guess it! there is a new punch to cut bats! this is the new Spooky Bats Punch, and it cuts three different bats!

If you see close to the bats you can see that I added wink of stella to the bats as well as the star, so it has a glimmery look!! I absolutely love Wink of Stella! I can truly say that it makes any project look 1000 times better 🙂 


If you are wondering where did that star came from, this was a die from the Takeout thinlits set! which make a cute little treat holder that looks like a takeout box and it has several images that can be cut so you have little treats for multiple occasions, I recommend the takeout treats bundle as it would be perfect to make little gifts for so many occasions, like Birthday, Valentines, Halloween, Christmas, Teachers gifts, Showers, graduations, etc!! multiple options I promise you will not regret add this bundle to your collection!

The Joy of Sets Blog Hop

Hello Friends!! Today I am participating on The Joy of Sets Blog Hop which is focusing on products out of our Holiday Catalog, so be sure to check everyone’s blog as I am sure you will enjoy watching all the holiday projects and I know you will get tons of inspiration for your next creation!


I always recommend that you have a pen and pencil available as you go thru the blog hop as I know that there will be items that you will want to get, so write it down and start making your shopping list 🙂  – you can read below about my ordering incentive if you choose to place an order with me 🙂


For this blog Hop I decided to go with a Halloween project!! I love this holiday and since it is soon to arrive, lets get ready for it!! don’t you agree?? 


The card I am showing today features the Toil and Trouble designer series paper, I love the colors on it and I love that you can die cut some of the designs on this paper with the framelits on this suite!! More and more Stampin’ Up! is coordinating the bundles with the designer series paper, so not only can you cut the stamped images but you can also cut the images on designer series paper!! how clever is that!! 

At the time I was making my card I had not received yet my framelits so I did have to hand cut a lot of the designs but quite honestly it wasn’t that bad of a task, so it is manageable, so don’t stress about fussy cutting.. 


The background was stamped using the buffalo check stamp set! this has become one of my favorite stamps for real!! you can use it for all occasions!! no kidding, I have used it so much that you would not believe it!! 


Some ideas for the Buffalo Check stamp set – You can do tone on tone (stamp in the same color as the cardstock you are using) or you can make combinations, like the one I did on my card below it is using a darker color than the cardstock, also you can do like crumb cake, greens or reds shades of cardstock and stamp the buffalo check on early espresso and you will get a background perfect for like Christmas cards or masculine cards, or you can do whisper white cardstock with light colors and it would be perfect to like baby shower cards, so again the options are infinity! 
So if you don’t have this stamp set, I highly recommend that you add it to your shopping list! you will love it.. 


The Halloween cards that I made on this week’s FB live did have the background made with the Buffalo Check stamp set, you can check these cards HERE


   
The sentiment and the star came from the takeout box bundle, this one is a great bundle as it makes a little treat box, and the coordinating stamp set has stamps that would go perfect for valentines, Halloween, Christmas or any other occasion, this is another great bundle that should probably need to be on your shopping list! you won’t regret it!
  

You can watch the video tutorial below, where I go over measurements, tips and tricks on how to make this card. You will see that this card is so easy to duplicate!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, make sure you visit all participant blogs on this hop, you will not regret it, the previous blog is the one from Jenifer Arent and the next blog is the one from Andrea Parr, you can click on the arrows to take you to both of these blogs!

How to make a quick and easy card for the men in your life

Hello Friends!!, Here is another card featuring the Truly tailored suite!!,  as I have mentioned in past blog posts, this suite is perfect to create masculine cards perfect for the men in your life!!! 


The stamp set has a coordinating punch, and when you get them as a bundle you save 10% on both items, please note that the punch is not retiring but the stamp set is retiring at the end of May, so don’t let it go, if this is on your wish list!


This suite has the Truly Gentleman designer series paper, and it truly coordinates perfectly with this suite!, I love the colors on this paper pack and it is just so easy to design masculine cards with this pack!! the colors are just great!! there is also a corduroy ribbon in night of navy that coordinates as well perfectly with the whole suite!

This time I used as well the foxy friends and the fox builder punch for this card, I got to say this is not my design, I used Pinterest as my inspiration and I found a card made by Mary Bush, and while this card is not exactly the same as her design, her card was my inspiration for this card.
