Step by Step Tutorial Button

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use a Bone Folder to distress the edges of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 4 1/4. Cut at an angle to create a 2 1/4 wide piece. 

Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove any excess then set with a Heat Tool. 

Use a Sponge Dauber or Stamping Sponge to add Night of Navy Classic Ink.  Remove the ink from the embossed snowflakes with a Paper Towel. 

Use an Aqua Painter or brush to flick specks of water onto Night of Navy Ink.  Let sit for 1 min, then dab with a Paper Towel. 

Staple a loop of Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon as shown. 

Distress the edges with a Bone Folder.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment first in Night of Navy Ink, then again in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Snip closely with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and So Many Snowflakes Dies to crop three snowflakes from a piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.  Adhere as shown with Mini Glue Dots. 

Embellish with Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems & Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments. 

Snowflake Splendor Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Stampin' Seal Gift by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

Did you know that multiple dies from the So Many Snowflake Die Set perfectly crop images from the Snowflake Splendor Designers Series Paper?  The snowflakes adorning on my 3-1/8 x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Box were quickly cropped from the DSP. 

I also discovered that the 3-1/8 x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Boxes are a perfect gift box for our Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Seal+ refills! 

Snowflake Splendor Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas 3x3 Gift Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

I love that you can stamp a sentiment, then snip it apart to piece it as needed on your project!   It doesn’t have to be perfect!  Handmade creations are fabulous with a few flaws, at least I think so! 

This 3×3 card also fits snuggly into the 3-1/8 x 3-1/8 Acetate Card Boxes.

Quite Curvy Bundle from Stampin' Up! Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot!
Step by Step Tutorial Button

Begin with an 8 x 8 1/2 piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock. 

Score and fold at 4 1/4.

Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiments as shown in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a 4 x 8 piece of Whisper White Cardstock. 

Use the Curvy Dies, along with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the following:  2 1/2 x 8 & 1 1/2 x 8 pieces of Terracotta Tile Cardstock.  1 1/2 x 8 piece of Gray Granite Cardstock.  1 1/4 x 8 piece of Whisper White Cardstock. 

TIP: You will need to run the piece through twice to get a full-length cut.  I cut the largest piece of Terracotta Tile first, then I made sure to keep my curves the by same laying it out next to the previous cut before running it through the machine. 

Stamp the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Crop with the coordinating Curvy Dies. Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green, Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral,  Smoky Slate, Gray Granite, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay. 

Layer and adhere all pieces together as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Adhere loops of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon and Terracotta Tile 1/4″ Ornate Garden Ribbon to the card with Mini Glue Dots. 

Color a felt flower from the Boho Indigo Product Medley Kit with a Bermuda Bay Dark Stampin’ Blend.  Remove the wood center and replace with a Pearl Basic Jewel.  Adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot. 

Add Pearl Basic Jewels to the curvy die-cuts as shown.

Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: In the Pines Bundle

Create these cards using the In the Pines and Snow Wonder Bundles from Stampin' Up! 2020 Artisan Blog Hop, Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Welcome to the In the Pines Bundle Artisan Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team is sharing creations made with the In the Pines Bundle from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog! 

I decided to do what I do best!  RUSTIC!  I started with Crumb Cake Cardstock as my canvas and created my pine pieces from there. 

Do you love the outdoors?  Sunsets through the trees?  Snowman glistening alongside the pines?

Create these cards using the In the Pines and Snow Wonder Bundles from Stampin' Up! 2020 Artisan Blog Hop, Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I love a sunset peeking through a forest so I decided to make a card that brings it to life!  

Stampin’ Blends on Crumb Cake give a soft feel that works well for rustic creations.   The trees were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored with Light and Dark Mossy Meadow, as well as, Old Olive Dark Stampin’ Blends.

The sun was colored on a 1-1/2″ circle of Whisper White Thick Cardstock so that it popped a bit more from the background.  I roughed up the edges with a Bone Folder and stapled on a double bow of Linen Thread to the upper left corner.

My late Mother-in-Law whom we lived with and cared for was a huge snowman collector…or I should say she had a lot of friends and family that loved to buy her anything and everything snowman.  She said they are always “happy” and have a smile on their face.  So whenever I see stamp sets with a snowman, I just have to have them to honor her.   The Snow Wonder Bundle was no exception.  

It pairs so well with the In the Pines Bundle too!

On this card, I wanted to show the variety of tree dies available with the In the Pines Bundle.  All images and die-cuts outside of the sentiment were colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The tree in the back was stamped, colored then cropped with the “outline” tree die.  I love the effect that it creates.

Our Adventures Journal with Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

OUR ADVENTURES JOURNAL!  This journal really makes the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper shine!  The Designer Series Paper pack really does a fabulous job tying all four of my creations together!  The color palette is one of my favorites.  

The Trimming the Town Suite does not include sentiments, but you have an extremely large selection of Stampin’ Up! sets that pair perfectly.  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies along with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to bring this journal to life. 

 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Wrap the binding of a composition notebook with a 2 1/2 x 10 piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper, adhering with Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Adhere two 7 x 10 pieces of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to the front and back cover with Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Trim the corners to match the curve of the notebook using Paper Snips. 

Cover the seams with Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Twill Ribbon, adhering in place with Tear & Tape Adhesive. 

Adhere Poppy Parade Cardstock to Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the Playful Alphabet letters.  Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Stamp the sentiment (Peaceful Moments) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Adhere to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop with the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die.   Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Use Paper Snips to cut two large and three small pine trees from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, then crop with the coordinating Home Together Dies. Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Embellish with All the Trimmings Embellishments.

Warm Wishes From Our House to Yours Slimline Card & Coordinating Envelope by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

SLIMLINE SPLENDOR!  I love slimline cards, they are so fun to make especially when creating a scene. I immediately imagined a slimline card when I saw the dies that came in the Home Together Set!  Have you tried a slimline card yet?  Sometimes they can be a challenge as there is a lot of canvas to cover….but keep them simple and they are not as hard as they look!

I love to make coordinating envelopes!  I admit that I hate to measure and cut…so I wrapped the Designer Series Paper around my card, made a few scores on where I needed to fold and cut, then assembled it from there.  I will do my best to give good measurements and steps so you can create one too!

Stamp the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Crop with the coordinating Home Together Dies.

Color with Stampin’ Blends: Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Basic Black,  and a Color Lifter.

Adhere to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. 

Stamp the sentiment (Poinsettia Petals) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool. Trim to 2 x 5/8.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Absolutely Adorable Mini Coffee Cup Holiday Gnomes!

Gnomes made with Mini Coffee Cups from Stampin' Up! Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Say What?  Gnomes made with Mini Coffee Cups? 

 
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! 

I love adorable gnomes just as much as I love cute little owls.  I know, I’m a dork, but I own it and love it all the same. 

I will do my best to give step-by-step details so that you can recreate them or at least a version with your own personal style.  

Gnomes made with Mini Coffee Cups from Stampin' Up! Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

All products used on my Mini Coffee Cup Gnomes are from Stampin’ Up! and links to those products will be listed/linked at the end of my post for your convenience.  Keep in mind that these were created as I went, using trial and error.  There may be a better, more efficient way to create them, but I am sharing how they came to life, while watching a Twins game on a Sunday afternoon in my living room :).

How to Assemble the Hat:

  • Cut off the “small lip” of the Mini Coffee Cup cover with Paper Snips so that it is a flat surface. Add a strip of Tear & Tape adhesive to the remaining “lip”.
  • Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 9 x 12. Form around the Mini Coffee Cup cover until it is in the shape of a cone. Adhere the edges together with Tear & Tape Adhesive and the center to the Mini Coffee Cup cover.
  •  Cut a 1 1/2 x 11 strip of coordinating Designer Series Paper and wrap around the cone hat, about 2″ from the top, adhering the ends with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Wrap Gold 1/16″ Cord around the coordinating Designer Series Paper adhering to the back side with Mini Glue Dots that have been rolled between your fingers to remain hidden.
  • Cut several 1*1/2″ to 2″ pieces of Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Shred to individual threads.  Tie together through the middle with a piece of thread to create the poms for the top of the hats. Adhere to the top of the hat with a hot glue gun.
  • Thread 4 Gold Jingle Bells onto a piece of Gold 1/16″ Cord.  Tie around the top of the hat (the male).

How to Assemble the Bodies & Beard & Braids, Etc:

  • Bodies: Wrap the coffee cups in coordinating Designer Series Paper, adhering with Stampin’ Seal+ or Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Female: Use the All Dressed Up Dies and coordinating Designer Series Paper to cut the pocket, straps and buttons for the “bib overalls”.  Adhere with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Beard: Cut a roll of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim into various lengths from 2″ to 4″.  Gently pull the fibers so they start to come apart.  Adhere in layers to the top of the coffee cup with Tear & Tape or hot glue.
  • Braids: Cut a roll of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim into 5″-6″ pieces.  Split into two groups.  Tie the top with Linen Thread.  Braid as shown.  Tie at the bottom with Linen Thread and then double wrap with Real Red 3/8″ Braided Linen Trim, securing with a bow.  Adhere to the top of the cup with Tear & Tape Adhesive or hot glue.
  • Noses: Crop pieces of Petal Pink Cardstock using the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Use the stylus end of a Take Your Pick tool to create the depth around the edge of the noses.  Adhere with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Feet: Crop pieces of coordinating Designer Series Paper with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. Snip the end tie end off with Paper Snips.  Adhere together with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere to 1″ x 6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper that have been rolled into a circle (to form the legs) together and to the cup with Tear & Tape or hot glue.
  • Earrings: Tie Gold Jingle Bells to Gold 1/16″ Cord.  Adhere up under the hat with Mini Glue Dots or hot glue.

With Christmas Gnomes come Christmas gifts…and those gifts just happen to be succulent plants set in Mini Coffee Cups decorated to match! The coffee cups were decorated using the coordinating Warm Wraps Dies.
 
I created the bow with the help of an old Stampin’ Up! Flyer called “Paper Bows: Six quick steps for making pretty paper bows”.  I scanned the instructions on the inside so that you could see how easy it was to create the bows above.

The photo above represents most the of the materials I used to create my Mini Coffee Cups Christmas Gnomes and coordinating succulents gifts. Just add your choice of Designer Series Paper and a Paper Trimmer and you have the recipe for cuteness.

I just had to add a coordinating slimline card to the mix!  The Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set is what gave me the idea of the Mini Coffee Cup Christmas Gnomes.  It was a must-have from the 2020 Mini August – December “Holiday” Catalog.  

Begin by cutting a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 8″ x 9 1/4″.  Score and fold at 4″.

Cut a piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to 3 3/4″ x 8 1/2″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. 

Crop three circles from a 3 1/2″ x 8 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock as shown using a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Magnetic Plate, and the 2 3/8″ & 2 5/8″ Layering Circle Dies.  

Place a 3 1/2″ x 8 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock under the negative space of the circles you just cropped.  Use a Stamparatus to lineup the stamps within the circles.  Remove the top piece and stamp the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Stamp the 3rd gnome onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock. 

Color the images with the following Stampin’ Blends (Light & Dark): Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, Ivory and Color Lifter. 

Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal.  Adhere the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut the 3rd gnome with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Mask and stamp the sentiment in sections with Versamark as shown.   Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess, set with a Heat Tool.  Crop with the Classic Label Punch.  Snip the ends to size.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.
