You’ve Got This – Fortieth Birthday and Stampin’ Blends

The time has come to start creating birthday cards that will be in abundance soon, as my High School friends/classmates (and myself) close in on the age of 40!  My cousin and one of my closest friends turned 40 years old yesterday! Her husband threw her a surprise birthday party this past Saturday, which we were more than happy to attend.  It was a successful surprise and I was able to catch up with family I hadn’t seen in awhile.

I needed to make a card, but I didn’t want to do the traditional 40th Birthday in black.  I wanted to have black incorporated into the card, so I found the perfect piece of paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper Pack.  I decided to mute it by placing a piece of Vellum over the top of it but letting it peak out the edges.  I also decided to soften it by using Crumb Cake as the Card Base and accent piece.

The flower from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set was also stamped on Crumb Cake using the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then colored with the Fabulous New Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I highly recommend using Crumb Cake with the Stampin’ Blends. It softens the colors and blends so very nicely. I used Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie.  After coloring, I snipped the edges with my Paper Snips.

The Stitched Square was quickly cropped with the Big Shot and die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, one of my very favorite in my collection :).  After cropping it out, I then added Cherry Cobbler Ink using the Color Smooching Technique.  I adhered it to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals, over the top of the Linen Thread I had wrapped around the layers adhered to the Card Base.

After adhering the You’ve Got This Flower to the Crumb Cake Square (also with Stampin’ Dimensionals) I stamped the Happy Birthday, from the Milestone Moments Stamp Set, with Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then stamped the Fortieth in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock and Heat Embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I trimmed it down and flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.

I added a few Black Rhinestone Jewels, my favorite accessory, to the card to finish it off.

Eastern Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Colored with Stampin' Blends for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #easternbeauty #stampreviewcrew #stampinblends

Welcome to another blog hop with Stamp Review Crew!  Today’s featured stamp set is the beautiful Eastern Beauty!

So I am a little obsessed with the New Stampin’ Blends and try to incorporate them into as many projects as I can….cause, let’s face it, I just can’t get enough of them!  So when I grabbed the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set, I envisioned something that I could color…and so my card was born!

The focal point of my card uses three stamps from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set. Tip: Make sure to use Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and Whisper White Thick Cardstock when using Stampin’ Blends.  I started with the flower petal-like image and then added the dots around the outside.  Once that was complete, I grabbed the largest circle framelit die from Layering Circles pack and quickly cropped it out with the assistance of my Big Shot and Magnetic Platform. I decided that the inside of the petal-like image needed a little boost, so I added the additional image.  You can see them in the product photo below.

I colored the focal point with the following Stampin’ Blends (from the middle of the image, out): Light Pumpkin Pie, Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Pool Party, Dark Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay, Dark Bermuda Bay, Light Calypso Coral, Dark Calypso Coral.

I used Bermuda Bay Cardstock as my base, cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.  I then layered Basic Black Cardstock cut 1/8 in smaller at 4 1/8 in x 5 3/8 in., adhering it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I took Shimmery White Cardstock and added Bermuda Bay Ink using the Paper Smooching Technique.  (Download the Tutorial Here). I added the focal point, laying Calypso Coral 1/8 in. Sheer Ribbon behind it, prior to adhering it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then stamped the two sentiments in Basic Black Archival Ink and added Black Rhinestone Jewels as a final touch.

At Home With You Bundle : Christmas

At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Creates a Cute Christmas Card and Gift Bag by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #athomewithyou #christmascard

Today did not go as planned but I am happy that I still have something to share with you.  The At Home With You Bundle is one of my favorites from the 2017-2018 Holiday Catalog. I have created several projects for the InkBig Academy Design Team that I am going to share with you. Since everything is starting to navigate towards the upcoming Christmas Holiday, I thought I would start out with my Christmas Creations.

At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Creates a Cute Christmas Card and Gift Bag by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #athomewithyou #christmascard

A square card (5.5 in. x 5.5 in.) was the perfect canvas to create this front door scene.  The door was stamped in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  An easy way to create a realistic looking door!  It was then cropped out with the Big Shot coordinating framelits dies, included in the bundle.  All other images were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock and then colored with an Aqua Painter and Classic Inks.

Tip:  Crop out the images with the Big Shot, Coordinating Framelits and Magnetic Platform prior to coloring them.  Nothing more frustrating than coloring a perfect image only to get an imperfect crop cut.

I just love this feature of the At Home With You Bundle!  You can hide the sentiment behind the door that actually opens!  How fun is that?

The “house siding” was created by adding ink to the inside of the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder prior to sending it through the Big Shot and Whisper White Cardstock.

I just love the Striped Treat Bags.  The Gold Foil Stripes are gorgeous and it is so easy to dress up a quick gift bag or last-minute gift giving.  The all the Gold Embellishments and Ribbon that Stampin’ Up! offers, it is easy to coordinate with the treat bag.

The Merry Christmas Sentiment, along with several others included in the At Home With You Bundle, can quickly be cropped out with the Classic Label Punch.  Just enough room remained for me to add a couple Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles.

I love the Gold Metallic Thread to add behind your images.  It just adds so much to a creation with very little effort or $ moola! I thought to add more Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles as the decorations on the tree made it feel more like Christmas!

The Perfect Pumpkin Scrapbook Layout for GDP111 Theme: Family Time

Global Design Project 111 Challenge - Theme: Family Time #GDP111I love creating scrapbook pages and try to make a weekly Scrapbook Sunday post but haven’t had time to fit it into my schedule.  So when I saw this week’s theme of Family Time for Global Design Project 111, I knew I had to create a layout using that super cute Pick-A-Pumpkin Bundle. I usually spend an immense amount of time on my layouts, this one took me about 2 hours.  I may go back and add a few more details here and there, but I think it looks clean and simple.

We had so much fun visiting the corn maze that featured the Minnesota Wild.  We are huge hockey fans and were so excited to find a Fall Festival that had oodles of activities for the kiddos and a theme close to our hearts.  I have lots of pictures to feature on scrapbook layouts and I am happy that I got started on them…

I use the Letters for You Stamp Set and Large Letters Framelits Dies on almost all of my scrapbook pages.  It is a must-have for anyone who scrapbooks and it’s all the craze for the current Eclipse cards that have taken the Stampin’ Up! community by storm.  You can see my Eclipse Card here: 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

Oh So Eclectic LovelyTri-Color Watercolor

Today I share with you another card created with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle for the InkBig Academy Design Team!  This one I wasn’t sure about, I struggled with whether I liked it or not.  But, the more I look at it, the more it grows on me.  I like the colors, the way they pop!  So, I decided to share it with you and get your thoughts! 🙂

Oh So Eclectic Bundle by Stampin' Up! for a Tri-Color Watercolor from Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #ohsoeclectic

Here are the card details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 in x 8 1/2 in and scored/folded at 4 1/4  in.
  • 2nd Layer is a Watercolor Sheet cut to 4 in x 5 1/4 in and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the colors of Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze with an Aqua Painter.  1st Layers of color were added with lots of water, allowed to dry completely then color was added again with less water and more color.
  • The leaves were stamped with Always Artichoke Ink onto Watercolor Paper and then cropped out with the coordinating framelits dies from the bundle.  They were adhered to the 2nd Layer with Stampin Dimensionals.
  • The flowers were all stamped in the coordinating background colors, with Always Artichoke in the middle.  They were cropped out with help from the Big Shot and the coordinating framelits dies.  They were adhered to the 2nd Layer with Stampin Dimensionals.
