Share Sunshine Blog Hop!

#sharesunshine COVID-19 Relief Fund Stampin' Up!

Today, a group of Stampin’ Up! Artisan’s have decided to share some sunshine with creations using the sentiments and images from the Share Sunshine PDF!

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts.  Help us make a difference today!

The download will be charged in US dollars; your financial institution will convert the charge into your currency based on current exchange rates.

I love that so many of the sentiments and images from the Share Sunshine PDF coordinate with a variety of Stampin’ Up! punches!  The entire page of sentiments were quickly and easily cropped with a punch.

 

  1. Begin by cutting a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2 to create your card base. 
  2. Cut a piece of Botanical Prints Designer Series Paper (part of the Botanical Prints Product Medley) to 3 x 5 1/2. 
  3. Wrap with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine that has been pulled apart to two-strand pieces.  Secure with a bow as shown.  
  4. Cut a piece of Best Dressed 6×6 Designer Series Paper to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Adhere together and to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  5. Crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the 2 7/8 Stitched Shapes Circle Die.  Adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  6. Crop the heart with the Heart Punch (part of the Heart Punch Pack).  Color the hearts with Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends. 
  7. Cut the “from a distance” sentiment to 3/8 x 2 1/2.  Flag the end with the Classic Label Punch.
  8. Adhere both sentiments to the card with standard and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Mini Glue Dot near the end of the flagged sentiment to make it look like it was waving in the wind. 
  9. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image (A Good Man) in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Color with the following Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs: Soft Suede (hair), Smoky Slate (shirt), Balmy Blue (jeans), Daffodil Delight (hair), Lovely Lipstick (shirt), Night of Navy (jeans), Ivory (skin). 
  10. Adhere with doubled-up Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Make a Splash

Make a Splash Stampin' Rewards Exclusive Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

Welcome to the 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team has so many over-the-top, amazingly stunning creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs! 

This blog hop features RETIRING Stampin’ Rewards Exclusive Stamp Sets, also known as HOST sets. These sets can only be “earned” with a qualifying order or workshop of $150 or more! You can read more about these exclusive stamp sets below.  The stamp set I am featuring is from the 2020 Jan – June Mini Catalog called “Make a Splash”.

When I first saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create something with watercolor and test my ability to “Make a Splash”.  It was actually much easier than I anticipated. All I needed was my handy Aqua Painter, some Jet Black Stazon Ink, a few Stampin’ Up! Classic Stampin’ Pads, and the fabulous Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.   

I wanted the watercolor to be the star of the show, so I kept the rest of the card fairly simple.  The cards took about 15 – 20 min each to create, so you can easily sit down and make a stack of cards and send one to each of your friends. 

 

My card bases were created with Whisper White Thick Cardstock.

  • The single bowl card base is a standard sized 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 
  • The double bowl card base measures 6 x 4 1/4.

I stamped all line images using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper sized the same as the card bases. 

TIP: Use a Stamparatus so that you can re-stamp the image if you do not get good coverage the first go round. 

I used an Aqua Painter and Balmy Blue Classic Ink to watercolor the water in the bowls and the splashes. 

The countertop lines were stamped using parts of the “water line” from the stamp set.  The countertop is colored with Gray Granite Classic Ink. 

I waited for them to dry completely before stamping the fish in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink. 

I stamped the crab in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, then used a Paper Snips to snip him out (as well as the other fish and fish bowl).  They were all positioned and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

I distressed the edges of the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with a Bone Folder before adhering it to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock of the same size with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

Stamp the sentiments (We’ll Walrus Be Friends & Make a Splash) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool!  Trim the sentiments to size with Paper Snips or a Paper Trimmer. 

Adhere to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
