Gift Bags!  I really dislike spending money on expensive gift bags, so I am one to either re-gift or buy a cheap bag and decorate it myself.  Stampin’ Up! makes a really cute Copper Dotted Treat Bag!  They are perfectly sized for a small gift such as jewelry, Stampin’ Up! embellishments, and cookies! YES!  These babies are FOOD SAFE!

Stamp Review Crew - Inspiring You One Stamp at a Time

  • Floral Essence Stamp Set #149450
  • Perennial Flower Punch #149522
  • Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper #149100

Come Sail Away Suite by Stampin' Up! _ Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!(1)

The gift bag above was created as follows:

1) Rub a piece of Vellum Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  This removes the static from the cardstock and will ensure the Stampin’ Emboss Powder only sticks to the stamped areas.

2) Use the Stamparatus to stamp the flowers in Versamark Ink (qty 6) onto the Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Crop with the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch. 

3) Use Stampin’ Blends (Premium Alcohol Markers) to color the backside of the cropped flowers.  I used the Light & Dark of the Night of Navy, Petal Pink, & Pineapple Punch.  The alcohol dries quickly on Vellum and lightens quite a bit.  I recommend several layers to obtain a nice depth of color.  Connect two sets of petals together with a Copper Metallic Brad.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  NOTE:  I doubled up the dimensionals on the center flower to make it pop a bit higher than the other two. 

4) Rub a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiments (“for you” – Itty Bitty Greetings) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Trim the center sentiment to 1/2 x 2 1/4.  Trim the “for you” to 3/4 x 2.  Flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Fold and add to the top of the Copper Dotted Treat Bag with a Mini Library Clip.  Adhere the center sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

  

The gift bags I am sharing with you today only use the Floral Essence Bundle from the Perennnial Essence Suite.  You can see the bundle in my online store by clicking the link here:  FLORAL ESSENCE BUNDLE

Floral Essence Stamp Set & Copper Dotted Treat Bags July 2019 Artisan Blog Hop Stesha Bloodhart

The gift bag above was created using the following steps:

 1) Rub a piece of Vellum Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  This removes the static from the cardstock and will ensure the Stampin’ Emboss Powder only sticks to the stamped areas.

2) Use the Stamparatus to stamp the flowers (qty 3) and leaves (qty 6) in Versamark Ink onto the Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Crop the leaves with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Snip the flowers with Paper Snips. 

3) Use Stampin’ Blends (Premium Alcohol Markers) to color the backside of the cropped flowers.  I used the Light & Dark of the Blackberry Bliss,  Rococo Rose, & Pretty Peacock.  The alcohol dries quickly on Vellum and lightens quite a bit.  I recommend several layers to obtain a nice depth of color.  Add Copper “button” Metallic Brads to the center of the flowers. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  NOTE:  I doubled up the dimensionals on the center flower to make it pop a bit higher than the other two. 

4) Rub a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiments (“for you” – Itty Bitty Greetings) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Trim the center sentiment to 3/4  x 2 3/8.  Trim the “for you” to 3/4 x 2.  Flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Fold and add to the top of the Copper Dotted Treat Bag with a Mini Library Clip.  Adhere the center sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

A little background on Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper:

What’s the next best thing to having one of Claude Monet’s paintings hanging in your home? Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper! One of Stampin’ Up!’s product designers, Julie Alusa, went to New York and was so inspired by Monet’s works of art, she decided to paint her own masterpiece. In her own words: “While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.” So now you can have a little taste of Monet with this beautiful Designer Series Paper. Hand-painted and gorgeous, this paper will go great with any project—even if it’s just for yourself! 

The card below was created using the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  Isn’t is gorgeous?  It definitely takes the creation up a notch and the work is done for you!  Don’t have it in your DSP stash?  What are you waiting for?

Free As A Bird Trio of Wedding Creations

Bird Ballad Suite Trio of Wedding Creations by 2019 Artisan Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot for SCT Blog

I recently had the honor of creating projects for the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog!  I was so excited to be part of an amazing publication.  You can see the post on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Blog here.

The Bird Ballad Suite is my favorite product suite from the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and perfect for a trio of wedding creations. The images from the Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set are so cute and color friendly!

All three projects use the same watercolor technique for each image. I like to use the Stamparatus to stamp multiple images at once and to ensure I get full coverage when stamping on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.

Each image was stamped in Jet Black Staz On Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and colored with a medium brush tip Aqua Painter and the following Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink Pads:  Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay.

After allowing the images to dry, they were then snipped with Paper Snips

Free as a Bird Journal & Pillow Box Gift

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

Hi Everyone!  Today I am sharing with you two creations with one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual catalog. I love coloring birds with a variety of coloring mediums.  The two creations below used the new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (item 149612), which is heavenly to color and fussy cut!

I decided to stick with a Crumb Cake palette and opted to use the new Pressed Petals Journal (item 149588) and the returning Kraft Pillow Boxes (item 147018) as my canvas.  Petal Pink pairs perfectly with Crumb Cake, and the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (item 149592) just so happens to have a Petal Pink design that was befitting.

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

My Kraft Pillow Box was wrapped with a 2 x 6 ¾” piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, adhered together with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).  I then wrapped two pieces of Very Vanilla 3/8” Scalloped Lace Trim (item 149593), facing opposite directions, and secured in place with Mini Glue Dots (item 103683). Using a Stamparatus (item 146276), I stamped all images from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set (item 149468) in Jet Black Stazōn Ink (item 101406) onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  TIP: Using the Stamparatus allows you to stamp the image multiple times (I stamped them twice) until the desired ink coverage is obtained.

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

I used an Aqua Painter (item 103954) and the following Classic Ink Stampin’ Pads to add color to the images:  Crumb Cake (item 147116), Early Espresso (item 147114), Pear Pizzazz (item 147104), Mossy Meadow (item 147111), Coastal Cabana (item 147097), Mango Melody (item 147093), and Calypso Coral (item 147101).  After coloring each image and allowing them to dry completely, I think snipped the images with a Paper Snips (item 103579).  I assembled and adhered them as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430) and Mini Glue Dots.

I rubbed a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock (item 119686) with an Embossing Buddy (item 103083), then used a Clear Block A (item 118487) to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink (item 102283).  I then covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), flicked the cardstock to remove the excess and set it with a Heat Tool (item 129053).  I snipped it with a Paper Snips and adhere with a snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (item 144108).

I then added several Gold Metallic Pearls (item 146282) to flower centers and two Bird Ballad Trinkets (item 149594) as a final touch.

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

My Pressed Petals Journal was adorned with so many fabulous products. First, I adhered a 3 x 5 ¼” piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to the back of a 4 x 5” Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper with Snail Adhesive. I then wrapped it with two pieces of Very Vanilla 3/8” Scalloped Lace Trim (facing opposite directions) and secured in place with Mini Glue Dots.  This adhered to the Pressed Petals Journal with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to 3 x 4” and adhered it to a 3 1/8” x 4 1/8” piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.  I added watercolor wash background using an Aqua Painter and Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.  After allowing it to dry completely, I wrapped two loops of Linen Thread on the right-hand side, securing it with a bow. I then adhered it to the journal with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

I cropped a piece of Vellum Cardstock (item 101856) using a die-cutting machine and the 3 ¼” wide Stitched Nested Labels Die (item 149638). I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals, strategically placed so they remained hidden behind the birds. I stamped, colored and snipped the images the same as I did with the Kraft Pillow Box (above).

I rubbed a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy, then used a Clear Block G (item 118489) to stamp the “Enjoy Today” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp Set (item 149298) in Versamark Ink.  I then covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flicked the cardstock to remove the excess and set it with a Heat Tool.  I snipped it with a Paper Snips and adhered with Snail Adhesive.

Again, I added several Gold Metallic Pearls to flower centers and three Bird Ballad Trinkets as a final touch.

I hope I have inspired you to create little handmade gifts embellished with phenomenal Stampin’ Up! Products.

Artisan Blog Hop June 2019 : Come Sail Away Suite

Come Sail Away Suite of Products by Stampin' Up! Home Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Welcome to the June 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 Come Sail Away Suite of Products from the  all-new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  

My wall art showcases the amazing elements from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.  The photo was taken several years ago on Lake Tainter, during one of our many evening cruises on the pontoon. Sunsets on the water are the best! I love that I now have a piece of wall art that reminds me of how beautiful nature can be.

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! 

 

Come Sail Away Suite by Stampin' Up! _ Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!(1)

The Memories & More card pack made these wall hangings a quick and easy collaboration.  The sticker elements were easy peasy to apply, I just peeled (added Stampin’ Dimensionals on some) and placed where I wanted them.  Other elements were snipped from the Memories & More cards and Designer Series Paper.   You can watch a video below showing the amazing products that are included in the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.

Come Sail Away Suite by Stampin' Up! Wall Art by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Sail Away Trinkets and Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine add the perfect enhancements to a paper craft project.  They are subtle but eye-catching…does that make sense?  Lol! 

My large wall art hanging plays off the blues of the water in my photo, the color of the elements I used pairs perfectly, don’t you think?  The photo below shows the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and how it compliments the Memories & More Card Packs.  The mat below my photo is the first piece of Designer Series Paper shown on the left.  

With the small wall art hanging, I decided to play off the color tones of the wood.  Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede pair together and “Set Sail In the Direction of Your Dreams”.  A perfect sentiment snagged from the coordinating Sailing Home Stamp Set.

        I decided that I wanted to create a project that used the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint.  So I grabbed a piece of canvas I had been saving for a rainy day and started painting it.   It looked beautiful, definitely has a gorgeous shimmer.  I decided that I wanted to keep the theme of the kit, so I added a couple swashes of Night of Navy and Melon Mambo Ink.  

        Everything is Rosy Product Medley Artisan Design Team Blog Hop May 1 2019 - Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

        Ultimately, I wanted this to be a frame for a single photo.  So I added the Rose Gold Foil Sheet and framed it with flowers created from the dies and Designer Series Paper. 

        Use a paint brush to cover a 12 x 12 canvas with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint.  Add Night of Navy and Melon Mambo brushstrokes as desired. 

        Adhere a 6 x 6 piece of Rose Gold Foil to the center of the canvas with a hot glue gun.  

        Use the dies & a die-cutting machine to crop large and small flowers of the Everything is Rosy Designer Series Paper.  TIP: I cropped 4 sheets at a time to speed things up. It worked well.  Adhere the small flower to the large flower with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere the Rose Gold Adhesive-Backed Mirrored Embellishments to the center of the small flower.  Adhere to the outside of the Rose Gold Foil with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        Stamp the large leaves in Versamark Ink onto the Rose Gold Foil.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Crop with a die-cutting machine and coordinating dies from the kit.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Mini Glue Dots. 

        Stamp the sentiment (Everything is Rosy Stamp Set) in Night of Navy Ink onto a Rose Gold Foil Die-Cut Label.  Adhere the floral Rose Gold Die-Cut Label to the left side with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere a flower made from Designer Series Paper as shown.  Take the small rose gold foil dots that were removed from the label edge and adhere them to the label with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  TIP:  Use the Take Your Pick tool to easily move the small dots around and set them into place.  Adhere the “gift label” to the center of the Rose Gold Foil with a Mini Glue Dot.  (This allows the recipient to easily remove and replace with a photo). 

         

        Birthday Wands:

        Cut four 1″ x 6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper.  Score at every 1/4″.  Fold on the score line, alternating direction at each fold.  Adhere two pieces together via the ends with Tear N Tape.  Form into a rosette and adhere with a Hot Glue Gun. TIP:  I crop a small circle of cardstock and use that to add my hot glue and then place my rosette on top of it.  

        Crop a large and small flower using the dies (Everything is Rosy) & a die-cutting machine.  Adhere together with a Mini Glue Dot.  Add a Rose Gold Adhesive-Backed Mirror Embellishment to the center.  Adhere to the rosette with hot glue. 

        Cut several strips of ribbon (Night of Navy/Rose Gold Metallic Edge & Melon Mambo Ruched) at various lengths.  Adhere the ribbon and the stick (I used a skewer) to the rosette with lots of hot glue. 

        Below are the creations that I made for my Everything is Rosy Presentation at the 2019 Minneapolis OnStage. Scroll through to view the 3 x 3 cards I created to fit neatly inside the Mini Pizza Box.
