Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Birch

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Birch! I love, love, love the Birch Background Stamp!

The Stamp Review Crew, a ground of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Birch background stamp!  This stamp pairs with so many different sets and is perfect for masculine creations.  In today’s card, Birch paired with Nature’s Beauty, a sneak peek of a new stamp set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Nature’s Beauty is the “making a difference” stamp, which means for every stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 towards mental health organizations.  How amazing is that?  I don’t know if there is a family out there that hasn’t been affected, in some way or another, by mental health, so what a better way to help raise money for a cause and earn an amazing stamp set as well!

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I love the sepia look and I think the Birch Background stamp is stepped up by adding a little water and giving it a sepia feel. What do you think? 

Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Adhere a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Soft Suede to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Birch stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Use an Aqua Painter to add water to the lines of the Birch stamped image.  Cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 

Use the landscape die (In The Woods Dies) and a die-cutting machine to crop 3 1/4 x 4 piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Stamp the grass with a Clear Block A and Soft Suede Ink onto the two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water from an Aqua Painter.  Adhere together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the deer (Nature’s Beauty) and bushes in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water with an Aqua Painter.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Soft Suede Ink 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. Snip to size with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think?  Anything you would change or do differently? Do you like the watercolor look?  I love to hear your thoughts!

Do you struggle with masculine cards?  I hear that a lot, but masculine cards are some of my favorite to create…it may be because of the way I was brought up (horses, hunting, and more) so they come easier to me, not sure, but I truly hope I am inspiring others to help create more masculine creations.

Artisan Blog Hop August 2019 : Shimmer Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper

Artisan August 2019 Blog Hop _ Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper_Bride & Wedding Gift Set

Welcome to the August 2019 Artisan Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!  This blog hop will feature creations using the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from the  2019-2020 Annual Catalog. 

My trio of bridal/wedding creations were inspired by a birthday invitation that I received in the mail the day that I sat down to create!  It was gorgeously done in blues, grays, and roses…I just had to give it a shot.

The wedding card above was created as follows:

1) Cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 7 1/8 x 7 1/8.  Score and fold at 3 5/8.

2) Smooch a 7 x 3 1/2 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Smoky Slate Classic Ink. (You can see my instructions regarding the smooching technique here).  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

3) Use Paper Snips to cut the sections of the FULL 12 x 12 Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper into individual sections.  Use the following Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the VANILLA side (not the shimmer):  Light & Dark Smoky Slate, Light & Dark Night of Navy, Dark Balmy Blue.  Adhere to the card with snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

4) Stamp the sentiment (twice) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy (removes static). Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Snip one full sentiment to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Use Paper Snips to closely trim the “congratulations” of the 2nd stamped sentiment, then adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

5) Use a Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend to color several multi-sized Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  Adhere to the card and flowers as shown.

Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from Stampin' Up!

The Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Pack comes as 6 sheets; 3 with a full 12 x 12 design and 3 with distinct patterns that can be cut to size and used as card fronts.  My three creations only utilize pieces from the full 12 x 12 design.  Several of the Artisan’s in the hop will also showcase designs from the distinct patterns, so be sure to have a peek.

Pals Blog Hop: Wildly Happy Mini Curvy Keepsakes

Pals Blog Hop July 2019 Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Mini Curvy Keepsake Baby Shower Treats by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

I have several new 2019 Holiday Catalog products tempting me, so I decided to create something that I could use as a sneak peek paired with something current.  It resulted in Mini Curvy Keepsake Baby Shower favors.  The Mini Curvy Keepsake box is available to customers on September 4, 2019 when the Holiday Catalog goes live.  I paired it with the currently available Wildly Happy Cling Stamp Set and Stitched Labels Dies. I happen to think they pair perfectly, you?

Mini Curvy Keepsake Baby Shower Treats by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Cut a piece of Perennial Essence 12 x 12 Vellum Cardstock down to 6 x 6 pieces, then zip through a die-cutting machine with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Die. Fold at the score lines, tuck a little something inside and assemble (easy peasy). 

Use a Clear Block B to stamp the “little one” sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Crop with the stitched heart die from the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies as shown.  Adhere, with a Mini Glue Dot, to a circle die (Stitched Labels Die) of Whisper White Cardstock.  Tie to the handle of the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, securing with a bow. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the bunny images in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter, So Saffron, and Petal Pink Classic Ink…with a touch of Smoky Slate.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add a Frosted Flower Embellishment, as well as the small Pearl Basic Jewels, as shown.  Colored with Dark So Saffron and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends as needed.

The Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies are perfectly sized for tiny treats, such a a single Ferrero Rocher, a Lindor Truffle, or similar.  What will you tuck inside?

I love the softness of the Vellum Cardstock. I colored the bunnies and added the embellishments to coordinate with the Perennial Essence 12 x 12 Vellum Cardstock.  Since the cardstock is 12 x 12, you can get 4 Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes out of one sheet!  YAY!
