Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper & Small Blossom Punch by Stampin' Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop_Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Here are some Step-by-Step Instructions on how I created the complete card:

 

  1. With a Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  (this is your card base).
  2. Cut a piece of the striped Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (the backside of the blooms) to 1 x 5 1/2″.  Adhere to the left edge of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper  to 4 x 5 1/2″.  Add a Watercolor Wash of Blushing Bride Ink with an Aqua Painter. Allow to dry completely.  
  4. Use a Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to flick drops of color onto the watercolor washed area.
  5. Use the Small Bloom Punch to crop 20 – 25 flowers from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  Be sure to crop the ones on the edges as well, no need to waste any of it!
  6. Adhere the blooms as shown with Mini Glue Dots or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 
  7. Cut a piece of Blushing Bride card stock to 2 x 4 1/2″.  Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Rub with an Embossing Buddy and stamp the sentiment (Here’s to Strong Women Stamp Set) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. 
  8. Cut a piece of striped Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper to 1 x 4″.  Adhere to the flagged sentiment with Snail Adhesive.  Trim the excess with Paper Snips. 
  9. Separate a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine so that you are using only two threads.  Wrap around the flagged sentiment, securing with a bow as shown. 
  10. Add clear Frosted Flower Embellishments to some of the blossoms and one to the flagged banner. 
  11. Add small Pearl Basic Jewels to both the center of the blossoms and to the center of the Frosted Flower Embellishments (use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere them).

Breathtaking Valentines with Stampin’ Up! Products

BREATHTAKING VALENTINES!
 
As part of the AMAZING Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team, we are honored to be asked to create projects for the corporate Facebook Page!  You can find these posts in the Notes Section here: Stampin’ Up! Facebook Notes.
 
You can see and share this specific post here: Stampin’ Up! Breathtaking Valentines
 
Step by Step Tutorial Button
 
These two love-themed cards showcase the beauty of Lovely Lipstick ink (item 147140) when applied to Shimmery White Cardstock (item 101910) or Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (item 149612) using an Aqua Painter (item 103954).
 
I used the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp (item 151612) in Versamark ink (item 102283) on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Once inked, I covered the image with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), gave the page a light flick to remove excess powder, and set it with a Heat Tool (item 129053). Repeat these steps again so that you have enough images to cut and fit on your card.

I then cut six flowers from the embossed image. I adhered them to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper that I watercolor washed using an Aqua Painter and Lovely Lipstick ink. I adhered them as shown using SNAIL Adhesive (item 104332) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430), doubling up where a little more dimension was needed. I also layered the watercolor paper on Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045), then adhered it to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White Thick Cardstock (item 140272) card base.

I adhered just a few Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (item 148805) to the card for a little pop of color in the corners.
 
For the sentiment, I cut three “Forever” die cuts from Basic Black Cardstock using the Sweet Silhouette Dies (item 149541) and adhered them together using bits of Snail Adhesive. I pressed the die-cut sentiment into a Versamark Pad, covered it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130), and set it with a Heat Tool. I then adhered it to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755).

For my second card, I used the same colors and techniques and just changed the background to a heart theme.
 
First, I applied an ombre watercolor wash of Lovely Lipstick ink to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock using an Aqua Painter. I then cut it using the Detailed Hearts Die (item 151440). I carefully removed the die-cut from the die, leaving some of the hearts in place. I used a Stamping Sponge (item 141337) to add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the die-cut and adhered it to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.
 
 
Next, I used the straight-edge heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack (item 151292) to crop two hearts from my ombre-colored cardstock. I layered them together, then adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
 
I layered the Shimmery White Cardstock on Basic Black Cardstock, then adhered it to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White Thick Cardstock base.
 
I cut and assembled the sentiment just as I did with the previous card, but this time adhered it using snipped-to-size Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few scattered Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots for a final touch and pop of color.

Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set & Coordinating Birthday Dies Cake by Stesha Bloodhart _ 2020 Artisan Design Team

I love the look of a watercolor image against White Embossing, don’t you?  I stamped the Happy Birthday To You image in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (rub that baby with an Embossing Buddy first), covered the stamped image with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Give the piece of cardstock a little flick to remove the excess powder, then grab a Heat Tool and set the powder in place!  

Here are some Step-by-Step Instructions on how I created the complete card:

  1. With a Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  (this is your card base).
  2. Cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside a Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  4. Put a drop of Whisper White Craft Ink Refill onto an Acrylic Block.  Grap with an Aqua Painter that is filled with water.  Flick the Aqua Painter so the white sprays onto a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2″ piece of Night of Navy Cardstock. Let dry completely or set with a Heat Tool.   Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  5. Crop a piece of Vellum Cardstock using the largest Stitched Circle Die.  Zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside a Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Snip a touch off the edge with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Use the sprig and leaf dies (Birthday Dies Coordination Product) to crop 6 of each with Vellum Cardstock.  Adhere as shown with Mini Glue Dots. 
  7. Use a Stamparatus to stamp the birthday cake image (Happy Birthday To You) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy. Cover the stamped image with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Flick the cardstock to remove the excess powder, then set the Stampin’ Emboss Powder with a Heat Tool.  Crop the cake with the coordinating die (Birthday Dies) and a die-cutting and embossing machine.  Color the image with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Blueberry Bushel, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  8. Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Happy Birthday To You) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy. Cover the stamped sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Flick the cardstock to remove the excess powder, then set the Stampin’ Emboss Powder with a Heat Tool.  Snip closely with Paper Snips.  Adhere to the card with snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  9. Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown for the final touch!

SEE THAT?  That is the smooth edge of a die-cut cake!  How did I get that phenomnally cut die-cut?  With the NEW Birthday Dies (Item 153590) from the Coordination Product Release!

HOW DO YOU GET THEM? If you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, you can add them to a demonstrator order TODAY!

I just LOVE the softness of a blue & gray color combination, especially when watercolored.  Pair that with White Embossed Edges and you have a recipe for a project full of stunning beauty.
