Accented Blooms Beautiful Hello Card

Accented Blooms Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Hello Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

This was the first time I inked up the Accented Blooms Stamp Set and I LOVE it!  I created this card during my retreat back in October, so I went with fall-themed colors, do you like?  I think it would look just as beautiful in holiday colors such as Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, & Daffodil Delight!

Accented Blooms Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Hello Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  Smooch with Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight Ink.  (See smooching instructions here)
  4. Create a notch at the top left with the Daisy Punch to hold the Linen Thread in place.  Wrap three loops and secure with a bow. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the floral image in Versamark Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove excess, then set with a Heat Tool. Color with an Aqua Painter and the following classic ink colors: Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green. Snip closely with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the “Hello” sentiment in Soft Suede Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Blend with an Aqua Painter.  Crop with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add 5 Rhinestone Basic Jewels, colored with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends Marker for the final touch!

One of my favorite techniques is embossing with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and watercolor in the image.  Having the lines embossed makes it so much easier to color the image and stay within the thin lines.

I love that we can color most all embellishments with our Stampin’ Blends to make them custom to match our creations.  I must say, I am kind of obsessed with coloring them.  It just makes them so versatile to have in any color I need.

Stampin’ Blends are my DOUBLE Hoot Loot for the month of November. Place an order of $50+ with my host code (right sidebar of my blog) and you receive TWO, yes TWO Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs of YOUR CHOICE! An $18 value!

3 More Signs of Santa Cards to Inspire You!

Signs of Santa Bundle by Stampin' Up! Holiday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Those darling little elves from the Signs of Santa Bundle make me go, “ahhhhh, so cute”, each and every time that I see them.  Better yet, they are so fun to color with Stampin’ Blends.  Did you know:  The framelits from the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies crop out both the stamped images and the images from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper? More bang for your buck!

Sign’s of Santa is part of the Santa’s Workshop Suite of Products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  You can view all products from the suite in my online store:  Shop the Santa’s Workshop Suite Now!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  2. Cut a piece of Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4 1/8″ x 1″.  Adhere to the left edge with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″.  Color the top half with a Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. Stamp Merry Christmas in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as shown. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the images shown (Signs of Santa) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and Coordinating dies from the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies. Color with the following Stampin’ Blends (Light and Dark Call Me Clover, Light and Dark Poppy Parade, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Mango Melody, Light Smoky Slate, Ivory, and a Color Lifter).

Stampin’ Blends Tip:  Color the edges with the Dark Stampin’ Blend, then add a bit of color with the Light Stampin’ Blend, pulling towards the middle.  Use the Color Lifter Stampin’ Blend to create a look of shimmer from a light source.  Add additional color as needed for depth.

I’m Back!….with some EXCITING News! 2019 Artisan!

Hello, Hello my Hoot-a-riffic Peeps!

I have just returned from a week of fun in Orlando.  3 days of celebrating 30 years with Stampin’ Up! at On-Stage and 4 days of Disney with my husband and two boys!  I AM EXHAUSTED but going strong on adrenaline with everything I get to share with you!

Back in August 2018, I received a very exciting phone call, one that I was NOT expecting!  My DDM (Demonstrator Development Manager) Shannon West, along with members of the Concept Art Team had called to tell me the exciting news that I had been chosen to be a part of the 2019 Artisan Design Team.  I was so excited but fretting about how I can keep this amazing secret from all my family & friends for 3 MONTHS…but, I did it.  I only told my husband and surprised my friends, family, and stampin’ family at OnStage when they announced it to over 6,000 demonstrators that were in attendance.

I received the amazing box of goodies shown above.  Inside the box contained a GORGEOUS Tiffany & Co. charm bracelet and my own, personalized, Artisan Design Team Stamp that I get to use on all my creations.  How exciting is that?  How about a closer look :).

Here is the list of the entire 2019 Artisan Design Team (from all over the world) that I will become close friends with over the next year.

We were spoiled with goodies that I will be sharing with you very soon via a video and blog post.  So, watch for it!  There are exciting changes coming that you do not want to miss!
