Easter & Spring Cards with Fable Friends

Fable Friends Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Easter & Baby Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

 

Fable Friends…what can I say!  ADORABLE!  They scream Beatrix Potter and make me want to read her fabulous stories.  

The images are fun to color and easy to snip (or crop with a basic shape die)…and that little squirrel will be inked up next.

The mixed fonts of the sentiments are perfectly paired and can easily be cropped with the Tailored Tag Punch or stamped right onto the card, creating the same simple effect.

GDP180 CASE the Designer – Stesha Bloodhart

Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

 

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

The GDP is this week is Case the Designer…and that designer just happens to be yours truly!  I am so honored to have my creation as the inspiration to this weeks challenge.  I hope that you play along.  You can use any part of my card as the inspiration for the CASE (Copy and Share Everything)…color, design, stamp set, anything that inspires you!

GDP180 Case the Designer
Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to 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 Botanical Butterly Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the vases, flowers, shelf (Varied Vases), and sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as the outline and the following for colors:  Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody.  Crop the vases with the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.  Snip the flowers and shelf with Paper Snips. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim the sentiment to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch. 
  5. Add three Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamels Dots for an added touch.

Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I decided to CASE my card by using the new coordinating Vibrant Vases from the 2019 Occasions Catalog, the same colors for the vases and flowers, and same layout. The 2nd layer is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.  The Designer Series Paper is AMAZING and the black and white designs are the perfect touch to so many creations…I highly recommend this Designer Series Paper. 

Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I I love that the Vibrant Vases Stamp Set is two-step stamping at it’s best.  The background colors have a subtle texture that makes adding color to your creations so easy.  They don’t need to be perfect to make the the vases pop.

Sweetest Thing Card and Candy Jar Decor

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Hi Everyone!  Today I am hoping to inspire you to give your Aqua Painters (item 103954) a bit of a workout!  It is one of the most used tools in my craft room and I hope to motivate you to give yours a try.

Shimmery White Cardstock (item 101910) is the perfect receptor of color from an Aqua Painter. My card base is a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2” x 11” Thick Cardstock (item 140272) cut with the Stampin’ Trimmer (item 126889) to 5 ½” wide x 8 ½” tall, then scored at 4 ¼”, resulting in a card that is perfectly sized to fit a Whisper White Medium Envelope (item 107301).

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use the Big Shot (item 143263), Big Shot Embossing Mat (item 146327), and largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die (item 148551) to create a sandwich to emboss a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and trim to size. Use the large brush tip Aqua Painter to wet the cardstock, first with water, and then with the following Classic Ink Colors: Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147098), Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147052), and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147087).  Tip: Squeeze your Stampin’ Pad together to transfer ink to the inside cover, which can then be used as your palette to grab color with an Aqua Painter. Allow the cardstock to dry completely, gently bend as needed to return to shape and adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430).

Use a Clear Block D (item 118485) for the jar images & a Clear Block B (item 117147) for the lollipop image from the Sweetest Thing Stamp Set (item 148575). Use 2nd generation stamping (stamp off on scratch paper) to stamp Smoky Slate Classic Ink (item 147113) onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies (item 148524), a Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform (item 130658).

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use the medium brush Aqua Painter to add Pacific Point Ink to jars, starting with color on the left side and slowly spreading it to the right.  Allow to dry slightly and then add more color as needed until you get the desired result.   Add color to the lollipops using the medium brush Aqua Painter and the same colors as the 2nd layer (Pacific Point, Flirty Flamingo, & Crushed Curry).

A Paper Snips (item 103579) works well to remove the muslin and separate the top of the jar (center).  Adhere the newly separated top to the side of the jar with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (item 144108).  You now have an open jar to add your lollipops.

Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Vellum 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock (item 101856) with the second-largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. Adhere all jars and lollipops to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink (item 102283) onto Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045) that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy (item 103083).  Cover the sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool (item 129053).  Trim closely with a Stampin’ Trimmer and flag the end with a Paper Snips.  Adhere to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the vellum to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals that are hidden behind the jars and sentiment.  Add some Gray Granite Best Route Enamel Shapes (item 146900) for an added touch.

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

A perfect way to step-up or decorate a jar is by adding a colorful rosette to the front of it.  To create the rosettes, start with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 5” wide.  Add the colors with an Aqua Painter (same steps as the card) and allow to dry completely. Cut six 1 ¼” x 5” strips.  Use a Simply Scored (item 122334) tool to score every ¼”. Fold the score lines, alternating directions every fold. Adhere the ends of two strips together with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).  Form into a rosette and glue together with a hot glue gun Note: 6 strips creates three rosettes.

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Crop three pieces of Vellum Cardstock using the Starburst Punch (item 143717). Use the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies (item 141488) to crop the banner from the colored Shimmery White Cardstock.  Adhere the banner to the vellum starburst with Mini Glue Dots (item 103683).  Adhere to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Create the jars, label, and sentiments in the same way as the card (steps listed above) and adhere together and to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Add Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine (item 124262) or similar to the jar topper.

I hope I have inspired you to give that Aqua Painter a try!  It does take a little bit of practice, but I feel the results are well worth it!

From #ArtisanDesignTeam member Stesha Bloodhart (@stampinhoot): “Utilize various Stampin’ Up! Punches to create artistic notches to hold Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread, and thin ribbon securely in place. The Daisy and Classic Label Punch are just two of the many options available. Think outside the box and the possibilities are endless.” Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle…LOVE!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. Use an Aqua Painter to create an ombre background with Mint Macaron (top and bottom) and Soft Sea Foam Ink (middle).
  3. Use the Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, and Butterfly Beauty Thinlit Die to crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock.  Use the Big Shot Die Brush to gently remove the die-cut from the die.  Adhere with small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 
  4. Use the Daisy or Classic Label Punch to create an artistic notch (right side) to hold two loops of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.  Secure the twine with a bow (left side).  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Stamp the sentiments in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Snip to size with a Paper Snips. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you ever struggle to keep your Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread neatly in place, grab a punch and get creative.  Adding a little notch to your cardstock makes tying and positioning so much easier…and it adds a nice artistic flair…BONUS!

Climbing Roses Embossed Thank You Card

2019 Occasions Catalog

Climbing Roses Bundle by Stampin' Up! Thank You Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #2019artisan

This thank you card was created using the Climbing Roses Bundle from page 9 of the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  A gorgeous image that looks stunning when heat embossed.  I rarely reach for Very Vanilla Cardstock, Whisper White is my go-to card color…but Very Vanilla is the perfect pairing for this set. 

Climbing Roses Bundle by Stampin' Up! Thank You Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #2019artisan

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  2. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Use the cap & brush end of Melon Mambo & Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers to speckle the card stock.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the Thank You sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Old Olive Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool.  Crop with a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and the coordinating Rectangle Stitched Framelit Die.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the floral image in Versamark Ink onto Watercolor Paper that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp again if full coverage was not obtained the first time.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Crop using the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating framelit die. Color with an Aqua Painter and the following classic ink colors:  Old Olive & Mossy Meadow (greenery), Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, & Merry Merlot (flowers), Soft Suede, & Early Espresso (white space).  Apply lighter inks around the edges, allow to dry and add darker inks for depth and shading.  Adhere loops of Rose Metallic Thread with Snail Adhesive. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Add three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls for a final touch. 
Climbing Roses Bundle by Stampin' Up! Thank You Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #2019artisan

Heat embossed images are so much easier to color as the embossed lines tend to help guide your brush from seeping over the sides. The Watercolor Paper, classic ink colors and an Aqua Painter filled with H2O are all you need to create a wonderful work of art.

I used the following ink colors:  Old Olive & Mossy Meadow (greenery), Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, & Merry Merlot (flowers), Soft Suede, & Early Espresso (white space).  Apply lighter inks around the edges, allow to dry and add darker inks for depth and shading.

I created the splatters on the card by taking the cap off of a Melon Mambo and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker and flicking the brush tip against the cap towards the card.  An easy way to add an artistic flair to your creations.
