Be Inspired Blog Hop : Graduation!

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Retirement or Graduation! I have a few graduation cards to make this year (it’s been awhile), so I decided to share one of them! 

Create this graduation card using the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

My graduation card is for our nephew, Evan.  I created it using his school colors.  It features two stamp sets that are retiring on June 2, 2020!

  • Lined Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set  |  Item 145908
  • Capture the Good Cling Stamp Set (No Longer Available)

It also uses two stamp sets that are carrying over into the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!

  • Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set   |  Item 149379
  • Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set  |  Item 146667

As you can tell there was a lot of fussy cutting!  If you don’t like to fussy cut images, then this card is not for you!  Hopefully other elements of the card inspire you! 

 

Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper & Parisian Beauty Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!(1)

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4.  Use a Stamping Sponge and the following Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks to create the ombre background: Merry Merlot & Mango Melody.  Use a Stampin’ Up! Heat Tool to dry/set the ink. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Clear Block A & B to stamp the “Congrats Evan” using the Lined Alphabet and Merry Merlot Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock as shown.  Color with Light & Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the “2020” using the Family Party Stamp Set and  Merry Merlot Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Be Inspired Blog Hop : Feeling Festive

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Feeling Festive! …and what is more festive than Jolly Ole Saint Nick? I absolutely love the Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle and I wish it was given the love I feel it deserves.  I shared a previous creation that I colored with blends.  Today’s card is colored with Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter!

Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan

The  Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle consists of the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp Set and coordinating Jolly Season Dies.  Purchase them as a bundle and save 10%!  You can see the bundle in my online store here

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 

Cut a piece of Real Red 6×6 Designer Series Paper  to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4.   Adhere to the card as shown with Snail Adhesive. 

Zip a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Crop a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with the 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 Stitched Nested Label Die.  Crop with a Paper Trimmer at 3 1/8.  Adhere the larger piece as shown with Snail Adhesive.   Adhere the smaller piece as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Santa in Jet Black Stazōn Ink.  Crop with the coordinating Jolly Season die.  Color with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand.  Color with the following Stampin’ Write Markers: Basic Black (blend with an Aqua Painter after coloring), Shaded Spruce, & Cherry Cobbler (presents & candy cane). Color his face with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop the “Jolly” (Jolly Seasons Die) in Basic Black Cardstock.  Use a Paper Snips to cut off the “to be”.  Adhere to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Stamp the sentiment (Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set) 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, then set with a Heat Tool.  Snip to size with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive. 

Tie a bow of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot that has been rolled between your fingers. 

Add a Red Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the bow.

 

Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan

Since we do not have a Classic Ink in Basic Black, I like to color my images with the brush tip of a Stampin’ Write Marker, then blend the black together with an Aqua Painter.  It works like a charm! 

Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan

A touch of Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread always steps-up a card with very little cost.  If you look back on my creations, I think almost every one of them has twine, thread, or ribbon!
