Thank God It’s Friday! 

Welcome to another TGIF Challenge Post, #tgifc142. This week is a sketch challenge and I was excited to pull out my All-New Barn Door Bundle! This is another of my favorite bundles in the 2018 Occasions Catalog! I love rustic decor and my style of paper crafting I think carries that through…and being you can make it into a slider card, make it so much more fun!

The Barn Door Bundle is geared to be one of the best sellers from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  It is on-trend with home decor and I couldn’t be more eager to continue to play with the bundle to see what else I can create. Stay tuned, as I will be sharing several more creations soon.

This Barn Door was colored with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Light and Dark Crumb Cake & Bronze.  I colored the entire image with the Light Crumb Cake.  Then I colored accents for a shaded look with the Bronze. I went over the entire image again with Dark Crumb Cake, then blended with Light Crumb Cake.  Next time I will attempt a weathered look with Watercolor Paper, Classic Ink, and my Aqua Painter.

Sure Do Love You Bundle and Heart Happiness Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalog Card Created for the January 2018 Pals Blog Hop Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #palsbloghop #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Card Details:

Card Base:  Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11 in. Scored/Folded at 5 1/2 inches for a standard sized card that fits perfectly in our Medium Sized Envelopes.

2nd Layer: Real Red Cardstock cut 1/16 smaller than the Card Base (4 3/16 in x 5 7/16 in) and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

3rd Layer: Watercolor Paper cut 1/16 in smaller than the 2nd Layer (4 1/8 in x 5 3/8 in), Smooched with Water and the All-New Brusho Watercolor Crystals in Brilliant Red.

Embellishments: Brusho Colour Crystals, Gold Metallic Thread, Gold Glitter Flakes, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder

Stamp Sets: Sure Do Love You Stamp Set / Bundle, Heart Happiness Stamp Set.

Ink: Brusho Colour Crystals in Brilliant Red, Real Red Classic Ink Pad, Versamark Ink Pad

Tools & Adhesive:  Aqua Painter, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Trimmer, Big Shot, Lots to Love Boxed Framelits, Paper Snips, Clear Stamp Blocks A & D, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Fine-Tip Glue Pen

Creation Details:  I first used the Brilliant Red Brusho and added it to a small pool of water.  I then took my stamp and used that pool as an ink pad.  After stamping those two images on Watercolor Paper, I let them dry, then added a Tear and Tape Adhesive to the center stripe.  I used the adhesive as my canvas for adhering the Gold Glitter Flakes, then quickly cropped the hearts with my Big Shot and Coordinating Framelits Dies.

The ‘Always’ heart sentiment was stamped with Real Red Classic Ink, then touched with an Aqua Painter to add a watercolor look.

I stamped the remaining images in Versamark Ink on Vellum, then heat embossed with my Heat Tool and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  All images were quickly cropped with the Big Shot and Framelits.

This was my first time playing with the Brusho Crystal Colours and so far I am liking them.  Very easy to use and so versatile, you can create so many different looks with one product.  I will be doing some tutorials in the near future on how to create different looks with the Brusho.

To create the background look on this card, I first added splashes of water by squeezing my Aqua Painter and flicking the drops randomly across the watercolor paper.  I poked two holes in the top of my Brusho Brilliant Red and GENTLY tapped the container to allow the crystals & powder to lightly cover the Watercolor Paper.  Larger drops of water from my Aqua Painter were added but I didn’t achieve the look I was going for so I joined the large droplets of water to create a wash background.  I then took a paper towel and soaked up the extra color.  This was not necessary, but I wanted to see what the result would be.  I was happy with it so continued with the creation of my card.

The All-New Gold Glitter Flakes add so much pop to your creations!  I decided I wanted specs of gold on the watercolor paper, so I added drops of glue with my Fine-Tip Glue Pen and then dropped some of the Gold Glitter Flakes into it.  I am loving the results and cannot wait to use it again!

Welcome to another Global Design Post, GDP1120. This week we Case the Designer – Krista Frattin. I love Krista’s style and was excited to case her card.

Sometimes it is hard to design masculine cards when so many of the products are geared towards feminine audiences. Stampin’ Up! did a fabulous job creating a suite of products that are geared towards the men in our lives.  I was so excited when I saw these products in the 2018 Occasions Catalog, I just knew I had to have all of it!  Truly Tailored Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018 Occasions Catalog Available in Clear or Wood-Mount. #trulytailored #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

This birthday card was quick and easy to create!  The punches make for swift cropping of elements.  The paper snips make it simple to piece apart sentiments for eye-catching layouts.  The all-new Night of Navy 3/8 in Corduroy Ribbon and True Gentleman Buttons add the perfect touch for a masculine feel.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog for GDP117 Color Challenge #gdp117 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

I stamped the Butterfly in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Watercolor Paper.  I used my Heat Tool to dry and set the ink more quickly.  I then added a few drops of color from my Stampin’ Ink Refills into my Watercolor Paint Tray Palette, grabbed my Aqua Painter and started adding color.  I wanted to make sure to leave some white space in each section of the wings and I really like the effect.

#tgifc137 Sketch Challenge – Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

It’s Friday!  Time for another TGIF Challenge!  This week it’s a sketch, which made for a quick and easy card! I decided to dig into my stash of items from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog, available January 2, 2018! #tgifc137

The Beautiful Day Stamp set consists of 5 stamps.  3 Images and 2 sentiments.  The flower and butterfly images are perfect for coloring with the New Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  I used the Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry,  Light Night of Navy and Light and Dark Old Olive on my flower.

Such a simple sketch that can be used to portray stunning results.  I sometimes have a hard time keeping my cards simple, so it is nice to have a sketch to follow that keeps me from going over and above….making my followers feel the design is out of their reach…I promise you, this one is well within your reach!

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

The Designer Series Paper I used on my card is from the Petal Passion Suite of Products, also from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog! It may be my 2nd Favorite DSP of all times (Wood Textures is my #1). It is Double Sided and Black & White ready for you to add any color you need.  SO versatile.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

When coloring the flower with the Stampin’ Blends, I started with the Light Night of Navy, adding it to the inside lines to create the look of shadows and depth. The next color I added was the Dark Rich Razzleberry, leaving white on the outer edges. Next, I used the Light Rich Razzleberry, filling in the remaining white areas and also going over the previous colored areas to help blend out the hard lines.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

My strips of DSP were cut to 1 in x 4 3/4 in and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I didn’t like the amount of space between my DSP Strips and Card Base so I added a 2nd Layer of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to give it a bit more dimension.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with Basic Black Archival Ink, the fussy cut it out to get just the “Happy Birthday” portion of the sentiment.

I felt the Black Rhinestone Jewels were the perfect accent to finish up my card.  These are retiring so if you have your eye on them, order them NOW as I don’t think they will last through January 2, 2018.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday
