Make a Splash Stampin' Rewards Exclusive Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

I used the Stamparatus to stamp images and sentiments from the following stamp sets: Sailing Home, Lined Alphabet, Itty Bitty Greetings, and Make a Difference.

Using Versamark Ink, I stamped on either a piece of Vellum Cardstock or Night of Navy Cardstock (as shown).

Once inked, I covered the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, shook off the excess, then set the stamped images with a Heat Tool.

After I finished embossing all of the images, I cut them out with the Smooth Sailing and Layering Alphabet Dies. I also used Paper Snips.

 

I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the spine of a composition notebook and Whisper White Cardstock to the front and back.
 
A Stamping Sponge helped add the layers of Night of Navy ink as shown.
 
Tip: Use a circular motion for the best effect and coverage when applying ink with a sponge.
 
I then used a Night of Navy Neutrals Stampin’ Write Marker to flick splatters of ink across the notebook.
 
I also flicked Versamark Ink Refill with a brush, covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set it with a Heat Tool.
 
Most items were adhered using the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals Combo Pack, while a few were adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I created my own coordinating envelope to slip the card inside. I doubled up on the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to make it sturdier.
 
I added the steering wheel from Sail Away Trinkets, silver Metallic Brads, and Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine to securely close the envelope.
To create the handmade envelope, I cut my 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper down to 8″ x 10″.
 
I scored it at 2-1/4″ and 6-3/4″. I then adhered the various selections of Designer Series Paper together using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
 
After that, I cut 1/4″ away from each side down to the 6-3/4″ score line (shown in the photo below). I folded the remaining tabs in and adhered them to the inside of the envelope to create the pocket for safekeeping of the Father’s Day card.
I wanted my card to be slightly more elongated than a regular-sized card, so I used a piece of Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock to create my 4-1/4″ x 6″ card base.
 
I used the same techniques as I did on the composition notebook to create the card base. I again embossed the sentiments and images.
 
I hope this gives you some inspiration to create some special gifts for the father and/or father figure in your life.

Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Make a Splash

Make a Splash Stampin' Rewards Exclusive Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

Welcome to the 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team has so many over-the-top, amazingly stunning creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs! 

This blog hop features RETIRING Stampin’ Rewards Exclusive Stamp Sets, also known as HOST sets. These sets can only be “earned” with a qualifying order or workshop of $150 or more! You can read more about these exclusive stamp sets below.  The stamp set I am featuring is from the 2020 Jan – June Mini Catalog called “Make a Splash”.

When I first saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create something with watercolor and test my ability to “Make a Splash”.  It was actually much easier than I anticipated. All I needed was my handy Aqua Painter, some Jet Black Stazon Ink, a few Stampin’ Up! Classic Stampin’ Pads, and the fabulous Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.   

I wanted the watercolor to be the star of the show, so I kept the rest of the card fairly simple.  The cards took about 15 – 20 min each to create, so you can easily sit down and make a stack of cards and send one to each of your friends. 

 

My card bases were created with Whisper White Thick Cardstock.

  • The single bowl card base is a standard sized 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 
  • The double bowl card base measures 6 x 4 1/4.

I stamped all line images using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper sized the same as the card bases. 

TIP: Use a Stamparatus so that you can re-stamp the image if you do not get good coverage the first go round. 

I used an Aqua Painter and Balmy Blue Classic Ink to watercolor the water in the bowls and the splashes. 

The countertop lines were stamped using parts of the “water line” from the stamp set.  The countertop is colored with Gray Granite Classic Ink. 

I waited for them to dry completely before stamping the fish in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink. 

I stamped the crab in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, then used a Paper Snips to snip him out (as well as the other fish and fish bowl).  They were all positioned and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

I distressed the edges of the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with a Bone Folder before adhering it to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock of the same size with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then adhered it to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

Stamp the sentiments (We’ll Walrus Be Friends & Make a Splash) 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!  Trim the sentiments to size with Paper Snips or a Paper Trimmer. 

Adhere to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 5/8 x 5″.  Use the splatter stamp (Painted Poppies) to stamp in Gorgeous Grape ink multiple times.  Use an Aqua Painter to create a watercolor wash from the stamped images.

  5. Adhere the three black pieces from the Peaceful Poppies Elements as shown with Snail Adhesive.

Crop with the coordinating dies and a die-cutting and embossing machine.  
  7. Add color with an Aqua Painter and Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

EASY PEASY!  See those flowers?  They were quickly cropped from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (Coordination Product) using the Small Bloom Punch!  Small Bloom Punch?  The Small Bloom Punch can only be EARNED for FREE with a qualifying purchase of $100 or more during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion.

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).
