I had an idea of the layout I wanted to use, but it took me some time to get it finalized.  I am hoping my instructions help those that may want to CASE it complete it faster than I.  Stampin’ Up! has done a fabulous job with the coordinating products in the Twinkle Twinkle Suite. I love the Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins and they really make the card.

The card contains 3 new Core Colors”  Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue, and Petal Pink…all part of the Subtles family!  This color combination used in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper is spectacular and is perfect for a baby card or decoration.

I love how the Animal Friends Framelit Dies are made to snip out the piece within the images and not just around the outside. (Frog Branch & Rhino).  It just adds so much depth to the final die cut!

I love images that are watercolored but not quite perfect.  The more artistic the look, the more I love it.  I didn’t spend a ton of time on coloring, just added a few shading areas after the first full coverage application. Do you like to watercolor?  Want to give it a try?  Aqua Painters are my free hoot loot for the month of April.  Place an order of $50+ using this month’s host code and you will receive them in May! Best time to try something, when it doesn’t cost anything!

Coloring with Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers on Crumb Cake Cardstock is dreamy.  They saturate the cardstock nicely, dry quickly and you can easily create depth and dimension.  If you are new to coloring with Stampin’ Blends, I highly recommend trying them on Crumb Cake Cardstock first.  When you master or get the hang of using them on Crumb Cake, then I recommend moving to Whisper White Cardstock.

You can watch the video below to see the Stampin’ Blends in action and to learn some tips and tricks to using them.

Twinkle Twinkle Baby for GDP 095 Theme Challenge

Moon Baby Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Twinkle Twinkle Little Start Watercolor Boy Handmade Card at Stampin' Hoot! by Stesha Bloodhart for Global Design Project 095 Theme Challenge - Kids #GDP095 #baby #cards #stampinup #handmade #watercolor

Twinkle Twinkle Baby for GDP 095 Theme Challenge


Global Design Project 095 Theme Challenge - Kids _ Stesha Bloodhart @stampinhoot Moon Baby SubmissionToday’s card was created for the Global Design Project 095 Theme Challenge: Kids.  My first thought was to use the No Bones About it Stamp Set because what is more kids (boys of course) then dinosaurs? Then I scrolled through the Design Team Submissions and Steffi Helmschrott’s card captured my thoughts and took over..I knew I had to try an attempt at the “no lines” watercolor technique.  Steffi is the queen of this technique and I love everything creation she has shared with us.  So I let Google translate her blog to see how she explained making her card and went to work. Although mine isn’t quite as “no line” as I would have hoped, I don’t think my first attempt turned out all too bad. Next time I will stamp-off twice before stamping my image on the cardstock (this was my last piece of Shimmery White).

Moon Baby Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Twinkle Twinkle Little Start Watercolor Boy Handmade Card at Stampin' Hoot! by Stesha Bloodhart for Global Design Project 095 Theme Challenge - Kids #GDP095 #baby #cards #stampinup #handmade #watercolor

I stamped the images and sentiments (all from the Moon Baby Stamp Set) in Smoky Slate Classic Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. The picture images were stamped-off onto Grid Paper to lighten the look of the lines.  The sentiments were stamped in full force.

The Moon, Baby and Stars were all colored with an Aqua Painter.  The Moon is Smoky Slate, applying heavier color in the corners, edges and around the baby.  Baby’s pajamas are Pool Party, Face and Hand are Powder Pink and Butt Patch is Crushed Curry.  The Stars are also Crushed Curry Classic Ink. I applied a very light layer of Pool Party around the stars to make a twilight sky.

The Card Base is Smoky Slate cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in to make a standard size card. The Pool Party Cardstock was cut to 4 in x 5.25 in and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Shimmery White Cardstock was cut to 3.75 in x 5 in and adhered to the Pool Party with Fast Fuse Adhesive.

I stamped the stars two more times on a scrap piece of paper, colored them and cut them out with a Paper Snips.  They were adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop

Welcome to the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop! You may remember my post from a few weeks ago asking for you to vote?  Didn’t see it? You can by clicking here: A Baby Card with A Little Wild Bundle Well, thanks to all you wonderful people that took the time to vote, it did the trick!  I landed as #2 in the Top Ten and have the honor of hopping along with Kylie Bertucci, Australia’s #1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and the other wonderfully talented winners!

The theme is the same as the contest: BABY!  This worked out well as we just happened to have friends who had a baby on June 23rd. So I decided to make them a special personalized gift to treasure their new arrival. (Note: the photos of baby Will were not taken by me). I wanted it to share the theme of the card so I kept the colors and images the same and just built my layout from there.

I was extremely happy with how well the Letters For You Alphabet Stamps and Coordinating Large Letters Framelits fit onto my page.  I didn’t measure, I just grabbed the frame I liked and everything just happened to fall into place. William Keith worked well since they could share the ‘I’ and they couldn’t have fit the space more perfectly.

The Labeler Alphabet did the trick to add the details of Birth Date, Weight and Length.  I hand cut each statement after stamping it (Soft Suede Classic Ink), as I didn’t want them to be perfect, I wanted more of a newspaper clipped feel.   All Items were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added three rows of Linen Thread to my layout, along with a bow.  1. To Match the Card 2. To Cover My Seam of the Whisper White Thick Cardstock as the background.  The frame opening is 10.5 in x 13.5 in and was purchased from Walmart.

The coordinating Number of Years Stamp Set and Large Number Framelits were perfect to use to show off the weight of 9 lbs. The little flag is also from the same set and I stamped the LBS with the Labeler Alphabets.  All sentiments, letters and numbers were stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink.

All the animals and bees were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  They were then colored with the following Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter:

  • Elephant:  Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette
  • Bear: Soft Suede
  • Hive, Bees and Lion: Crushed Curry and Soft Suede

The animals were cropped out with their coordinating dies and the Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform to hold them in place.
