Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an awesome sketch challenge for you this week!  The Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper, part of the Animal Expedition Suite of products, from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, is front and center!  I love how the images can easily be snipped out and become the focal point of your creation.

I needed quick and easy as I didn’t have a lot of time for this creation!  I love that the images are colored and ready for you!

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  • Cut at a slight angle, 2 1/2″ from the fold down to approx. 1 1/4″ on the other side.
  • Cut a piece of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper (Giraffe Spots) to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Adhere to the backside of the angled card front with Snail Adhesive.
  • Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around as shown and secure with a bow.
  • Using a Big Shot and Stitched Circle Framelit Die, crop a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Flip the Designer Series Paper around and snip out the sloth, giraffe, and chameleon with a Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Using Washi Tape, mask the Big Time of the “thank you BIG TIME” sentiment stamp. Ink it up in Soft Suede ink, remove the Washi Tape mask and stamp onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Repeat these steps, only this time use the Washi Tape to mask the thank you portion.  Use a Paper Snips to snip apart the sentiment and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Soft Suede is one of my favorite neutral colors!  It coordinates well with the animals from the Animal Expedition Suite, so I used it for my color base, You can click on the image below to view all the items that are included in the Animal Expedition Suite, in my online store!

The monotone green card is very pleasing to the eye.  I used the returning Mint Macaron (happy dance) and the fabulous Tranquil Tide!  I think they pair perfectly!

Giving your focal points an extra pop by adding Dimensionals is always a must on my creations.  If you are not a fan of fussy cutting, you can sure stamp the image right on the Watercolor Paper and it will still look fabulous!

#tgifc160 Thinking of You Card with Wood Texture DSP & Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC160

It’s Friday and time for an Inspiration Challenge!  This week’s inspiration is All About Wood!  My FAVORITE (I probably say that about a lot of stuff) Designer Series Paper is the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper 6x6 Stack!  I love the variety of options and it fits my rustic personality to a T.

When the theme is “All About Wood”, I can’t NOT use my favorite Designer Series Paper.  I am also giving you a sneak peek into how well it works with the Springtime Thinlits Dies (available June 1st, 2018).  What do you think?

#tgifc160 Theme Challenge - All About Wood
#tgifc160 Thinking of You Card with Wood Texture DSP & Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

  3. Cut a piece of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock to 5 5/8″ x 5 5/8″.
  4. Cut a piece of Wood Texture Designer Series Paper to 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Adhere to the Grapefruit Grove with Snail Adhesive.  Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around (2 times), securing it with a bow.
  5. Cut a 6″ piece of Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine.  Pull apart the threads. Tie to the middle of the Linen Thread Bow.
  6. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Crop a piece of Wood Texture’s Designer Series Paper with a Big Shot and the floral thinlits dies from Springtime Impressions. Add Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots tot he center of the flowers as shown.  Adhere to the card with snipped to size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Crop the butterfly using Grapefruit Grove Cardstock, a Big Shot and the die from Springtime Impressions, Add 3 Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots to the body of the butterfly.  Adhere as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.,
  9. Stamp the Thinking of You sentiment from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set in Grapefruit Grove Ink onto the White Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.
  10. With a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, highlight the right side edges of the sentiment (for depth).
  11. Add a few more Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots for a final touch!

One of the sneak-peeks from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (available June 1, 2018) that I am sharing with you today, is one that sits in my Top 10 must-haves.   The Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, which I used on the card in this post.  It is also available as a bundle, which includes the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set, along with the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies.  Purchase as the bundle for a savings of 10%!

#tgifc160 Thinking of You Card with Wood Texture DSP & Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The details of the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies makes creation a stunning card as easy as 1-2-3.  The dies do the work for you, creating a beautiful focal point by just zipping it through the Big Shot with a piece of Designer Series Paper.

#tgifc160 Thinking of You Card with Wood Texture DSP & Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I do believe that Grapefruit Grove, an All-New 2018-2020 In Color, will be my new favorite.  I love how it paired with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  It is also available in several new Embellishments and as a color in Designer Series Paper Packs.  I highly recommend adding this color to your collection.

#OnStage2018 Milwaukee Display Board Samples – Day 8

Love What You Do Stamp Set and Share What You Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Care created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I have been so busy playing with retiring goodies that I haven’t had time to share my remaining creations from my Onstage2018 Milwaukee Display Board Samples.  Today’s card (as well as many of the others) uses the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Love What You Do Stamp Set.  The Early Release Bundles are still available for you to scoop up and add to your collection!

Share What You Love Suite of Product Early Release
Love What You Do Stamp Set and Share What You Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Care created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Stamp the floral images (Love What You Do Stamp Set) in Basic Black Archival Ink (or StazOn) and stamp on the Watercolor Paper as shown.
  3. Tip: When stamping on Watercolor, I recommend using the All-New Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool to ensure you can get a good image.  Stamping on Watercolor Paper usually takes two+ impressions to get complete coverage.
  4. Color the Watercolor Paper and images using an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Island Indigo (retiring May 31st, 2018), Fresh Fig and Crumb Cake (background).
  5. Cut a piece of Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to 1″ x 5 3/8″. Adhere it to the Watercolor Paper with  Snail Adhesive.
  6. Wrap Linen Thread around the seam three to four times, securing it with a bow.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Crop a piece of Fresh Fig Cardstock with a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and the following dies:  Largest Scalloped Square Layering Framelit with the Stitched Shape Square Framelit nestled inside. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Stamp the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Using 2nd Generation Stamping (stamp off on scrap paper first), stamp the background image in Fresh Fig as shown.
  9. Crop out the sentiment using a Big Shot and Stitched Circle Framelit.  Adhere some Linen Thread to the back with Snail Adhesive, then adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Thread and tie Linen Thread through two Fresh Fig Flower Buttons (available June 1, 2018).  Adhere with Mini Glue Dots.

I love the watercolor background that I acquired using an Aqua Painter and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  I used very little water to get the background to look “brushed” and it took a few coats.  Watercolor Paper is very fun to use but can take some practice to get the hang of.  Practice, practice, practice.

If you have not ordered the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, I have to ask, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  Stunningly beautiful (one of my fav adjectives) pearlescent goodness that shimmers in the dimmest or brightest of lights! I cannot wait to share my final display sample with you soon!  It shows off every piece, front and back.  I am just trying to figure out how best to do it!
