TGIF! It’s Time to be Inspired!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for a “Sweet” color challenge!  Highland Heather, Soft Sea Foam, and  So Saffron speak SPRING!…and maybe a cupcake? I gravitated towards my Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and the All-New Coordinating Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies (released today, for a limited-time, while supplies last!). What do you think of my “sweet” pastel colored cupcake?

I love the simplicity of this card.  It is not difficult to create, so special techniques, just your basic papercrafting.  Will you give it a shot?  CASE it using a different color scheme?  I would love to see your version of my creation 🙂

Happy Monday Everyone!

I am so excited to be back in the swing of things and joining the Global Design Project Team after what seems to be a very long hiatus.  

I returned just in time!  This week we are CASEing the amazingly talented Shawn De Oliveira!  I had the opportunity to  meet him in Florida at OnStage this past November. It is also so nice to finally meet the virtual friends you make doing this gig we all share and love so much!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece Grapefruit Grove Foil to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 7/8″ x 5″.  Using 2nd generation stamping (stamp off on scrap paper first), stamp the grass image 3 times in Mossy Meadow Ink and 2 times in Soft Suede Ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to pull some color towards the bottom of the card.  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 
  4. Cut a 4 1/2″ piece of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Pull apart so that the fibers resemble a herringbone.  Adhere to the card with Mini Glue Dots. 
  5. Stamp the rooster in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Color with an Aqua Painter and the following inks:  Real Red (comb), Grapefruit Grove & Cajun Craze (cape & saddle), Pacific Point & Night of Navy (tail feathers & breast), Mossy Meadow (grass).  Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Jet Black StazOn ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform & Smallest (long & skinny) Rectangle Stitched Framelit Die.  Snip down to 2″ long, tuck behind the rooster and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Paper Snips can be a crafters best friend…at least they are mine!  I love to fussy cut images and make them pop off the page with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Fussy cutting is a therapy to me, I know to some it creates stress, for me, it relieves it.  Stampin’ Up! does a great job with creating dies and punches that coordinate with stamps, making it quick and easy to crop and image.

The Braided Linen Thread carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalog and I am so very happy that it did!  It adds so much to a creation and was the perfect addition to this card.

Humming Along with #tgifc193 Color Challenge

Humming Along and Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the #tgifc193 Color Challenge

TGIF! I am finally back to play along!
Now that the holiday’s have past and we are wrapping up the final items from my MIL passing, I can finally start playing along / designing for blog challenges again.  I didn’t get a lot of time to work on this post, but at least I was able to finish a project and get it on my blog!   This color combination is fabulous and I decided to ink up my new CLING stamp set, Humming Along! What a beauty, don’t you think?

Humming Along and Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card Created by Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for the #tgifc193 Color Challenge

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 Whisper White Cardstock to 3 7/8 x 5″.  Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and hummingbird image in 2nd generation (stamp on scrap paper prior to the cardstock) Smoky Slate Ink, as shown.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Stamp the flower image in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and ink from the cover of Stampin’ Pad. (Mango Melody and Lemon Lime Twist). Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and coordinating framelit die.  Stamp another image, color and snip out the center.  Adhere to the center of the flower and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Stamp the Happy Birthday in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip to size (I use a Paper Snips) and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Add three Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots as shown.

In hindsight, I would change up my 2nd layer to Whisper White Cardstock, instead of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Since I changed my layout to only the flower having a pop of color, the Shimmery White Cardstock was not necessary.  It looks good, but it would have looked better with the bright white on bright white.

The Humming Along Cling Mount Bundle is a new to the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Don’t have a copy of the catalog?  You can download a copy here or order a FREE paper copy here.  This bundle retails for $42.25, add some beautiful ribbon or a favorite embellishment to your order to bump it to $50 and you qualify for a FREE Level 1 Sale-a-Bration Item AND my January Hoot Loot (any item $10 or less).  You can view the Sale-a-Bration flyer here or order a FREE copy from me here. 

Adding color to Shimmery White Cardstock with an Aqua Painter and some ink from the cover of a Stampin’ Pad is an easy way to make a stamped image pop!  The flower was colored with Mango Melody and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I just love that pop of pink!

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
I feel like I am still dreaming!  Being chosen as a member of the 2019 Artisan Design Team is still unreal to me.  I decided to use upcoming products from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs (Available January 3, 2019) to create a page with photos of my Artisan Gift Box that I received in November at OnStage in Orlando, FL.
Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
The “Thank You So Very Much” sentiment (Butterfly Gala Bundle, shown below) seemed to be perfect for my page for showing gratitude to Stampin’ Up! for giving me this opportunity.  The black & white butterflies on the left were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and cropped using the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.  I then stitched them to the designer series paper using my We R Stitch Happy Sewing Machine.
Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
The colored butterflies were also cropped with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, FREE with a $50 Purchase during Sale-a-Bration (also available January 3, 2019) is gorgeous!  Black and White images on one side (the polka dot pattern on my page) and beautifully colored images on the other (the butterflies around my photos).
