Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Needlepoint Nook Suite

Needlepoint Nook Suite from Stampin' Up! Card and Holder by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Welcome to the April 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 the Needlepoint Nook Suite from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  

My random thought:  I almost didn’t order this suite…I debated, and debated…but I am so glad I stopped debating…because I love it and all the creations and inspiration from the rest of the 2019 Artisan’s. This suite is retiring on June 3rd, or while supplies last…so if you like what you see, order soon! 

Stamp Review Crew - Inspiring You One Stamp at a Time
Needlepoint Nook Suite from Stampin' Up! Card and Holder by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here!  I am so very honored.  I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too! 

 

Needlepoint Nook Suite from Stampin' Up! Card and Holder by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Needlepoint Nook Suite consist of the Needle & Thread Bundle, Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons, Old Olive Linen Thread & Needlepoint Nook Cardstock Pack.  All are discontinued and only available until June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last. 

The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper is so nice because it offers so many varieties of color combinations.  I decided to use the beautiful and bright piece of stitched Poppy Parade.  Lately my creations have been using a lot of white, so I decided to go with a drastic change and add a nice bright pop of color. 

 

Cut a piece of the Poppy Parade Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 5 3/4 x 10.  Score at 5/8, 5, 5 5/8, .  Fold at the score lines and slide into the Acetate Card Box. 

Wrap an 11″ piece of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon around the Acetate Card Box, adhering end-to-end (so it will be hidden under the focal image) with a Mini Glue Dot. 

Wrap 3 loops of Old Olive Linen Thread around the Poppy Parade Ribbon, securing as shown with a bow. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the leaf images & sentiment in Old Olive Ink, large flowers in Poppy Parade Ink, and smaller flowers in Crushed Curry Ink.  Crop with a Die Cutting Machine, Plate and coordinating dies from the Needlepoint Elements Dies Set (Part of the Needle & Thread Bundle). Layer and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Pretty Label Punch to crop the sentiment (the dies only emboss and stitch).  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie pieces of Old Olive Linen Thread to the center of three Needlepoint Nook Buttons.  Adhere to the center of the flowers with Mini Glue Dots. 

Add Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Flower Sequins as shown.  Color Pearl Basic Jewels with a Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Marker.  Adhere to the center of the flower sequins.

I love all the color options offered in this Designer Series Paper.  Stampin’ Up!’s samples in the graphic below is the perfect example of the multitude of bright or subtle colors you can use with this suite.  I am anxious to create another Acetate Card Box with the blue butterfly design from this Designer Series Paper Set.

Click on the image above to see all the products included in the Needlepoint Nook Suite via my Online Store.  Keep in mind, they are being discontinued at the end of the 2019 Occasions Catalog run (June 3rd) and are only available While Supplies Last.  Snag them while you still can!

The cards that created to slip inside the Acetate Card Box mimic the look and feel of the decor I used on the box.  I stuck with the same colors, shapes and elements, but added a few more options available in the bundle.  Do you see that Designer Series Paper playing peek-a-boo on the sides of the card?  It is the same Designer Series Paper used on the Acetate Card Box but since it was so prominent on the box, I decided to make it subtle on the card.

 Don’t you love that stitched design on the card layer?  So easy to create with the die included in the bundle!

Cut a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″. 

Cut a piece of the Poppy Parade Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Cut a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Wrap with a piece of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon adhering with Snail to the backside. 

Use a Clear Block A to stamp the small flowers in Crushed Curry Ink. Crop with a Die Cutting Machine, plate and coordinating dies.  Crop the additional pieces shown using the dies: label, leaves (Needlepoint Elements) and Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. 

Wrap Old Olive Linen Thread around the Poppy Parade Ribbon, threading and tying via the ends of the label die cut. 

Use a Clear Block G to stamp “friend” in Versamark Ink onto Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Use a Die Cutting Machine and the stitched dies to surround the sentiment.  Crop with the Pretty Label Punch.  Crop a piece of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper with the Pretty Label Punch.  Adhere together with Mini Glue Dots. 

Use a Clear Block G to stamp the “Happiest Birthday” in Old Olive Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Trim to size & flag the end with the Classic Label Punch. 

Assemble all die cuts as shown, adhering with Mini Glue Dots. Mini & Regular Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Clear Block A to stamp the butterflies in Poppy Parade Ink.  Add Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Flower Sequins as shown.  Color Pearl Basic Jewels with a Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. Adhere to the center of the sequins.

Beauty Abounds with the Stamp Review Crew

Beauty Abounds Bundle by Stampin' Up! Pastel Butterfly Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! Stamp Review Crew

Happy Monday Everyone!  

I am so excited that today the Stamp Review Crew is showcasing the fabulous Beauty Abounds Bundle.  I have made a few cards with this set and I just realized that all of them have a watercolored rainbow background!  You can see my previous creations listed at the bottom of this post.

This card I created during my craft retreat last weekend.  I am slowly picking through my creations one by one and getting them shared.  I have so much more to share…stay tuned. 

 

Beauty Abounds Bundle by Stampin' Up! Pastel Butterfly Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! Stamp Review Crew(1)

The colors I used for my background are similar to those you see in my owl.  I used Coastal Cabana, So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo.  I just love that color combination when applied as watercolor, it is so soft and pretty…and reminds me of Spring!

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.  Create a watercolor wash background using an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, and Flirty Flamingo.  Allow to dry completely.  TIP: Use a Heat Tool on low heat to speed up the dry time if needed.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 3″ x 5″.  Duplicate the watercolor wash background used on the Shimmery White.  Allow to dry and add another light layer of color.  After it dries completely, use a Clear Block B to stamp the bokeh images in Versamark Ink onto the Watercolor Paper.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, then set with a Heat Tool.   Adhere to the card with a generous amount of Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a die-cutting machine, plate and “butterfly group” die (Butterfly Beauty) to crop piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Snip the butterflies apart with a Paper Snips (5 individual butterflies).  Adhere 3 of the butterflies as shown with Mini Glue Dots and snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Clear Block C to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Snip apart (as shown) with a Paper Snips and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add small Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots to the center of the butterflies for the perfect added touch. 

Beauty Abounds Bundle by Stampin' Up! Pastel Butterfly Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! Stamp Review Crew(1)

Although the clear embossed bokeh dots are subtle, I thought they added a small touch of wow to the card.  What do you think?  Is it worth the time?

Bella & Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop, card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Embossing your sentiments in white on a dark color cardstock is one of my favorite ways to make a sentiment pop!  The softness of the Smoky Slate is perfect for this cards color combination.
