Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..2019-2021 In Colors!  I paired Terracotta Tile with Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz and the To A Wild Rose Bundle! 

To A Wild Rose Bundle & Terracotta Tile In Color from Stampin' Up! Card by 2019 Artisan Design Team Memeber, Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The  To A Wild Rose Bundle consists of the To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set and coordinating Wild Rose Dies.  Purchase them as a bundle and save 10%!  You can see the bundle in my online store here

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 

Cut a piece of Terracotta Tile Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Use a Stamping Sponge to add Soft Suede Ink to the edges.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4.  Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Birch Stamp in Soft Suede Ink.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the following:  Three Roses – Line Art in Soft Suede, Bottom Layer Terracotta Tile Stamped Off, 2nd Layer Terracotta Tile Full Strength.  Five Leaves – Line Art in Soft Suede, Bottom and 2nd Layer in Full Strength Pear Pizzazz.  Crop with a die-cutting machine and the coordinating dies. 

Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with doubled up Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (left side) and Snail Adhesive (right side).

Color Pear Basic Jewels with a Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend marker.  Adhere to the center of the roses and to the left of the sentiment. 

Create a bow using two piece of Linen Thread.  Adhere with a rolled Mini Glue Dot.

I love the rustic look of color on Crumb Cake.  I tend to navigate to it often, it just speaks to me. What are your thoughts?  Are you a fan?

I highly recommend using the Stamparatus to properly align the three stamps for both the roses and the leaves. It makes it so much easier and takes the frustration out of trying to get the proper alignment.

Linen Thread is the perfect paring to Crumb Cake Cardstock!  I almost skipped the Linen Thread, but I couldn’t go without it…I just had to add a little since is pairs so perfectly!

Be Inspired Blog Hop June 2019: Happy Mail

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Happy Mail!  I decided to make a card for a friend that just had a baby.  I used the Wildly Happy Cling Stamp Set. 

Wildly Happy Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Baby Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Simple images that can be stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends!  

I used the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper as the background with a piece of Vellum Cardstock over the top to soften it up a wee bit more. 

I added some Glitter Enamel Dots and Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine for just the right touch. 

I snipped the elephants with a Paper Snips and cropped two “clouds” with the Pretty Label Punch. 

The line art of these images makes it easy to add color with just the right placement for shading.  I colored the elephants with Smoky Slate Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends. Easy Peasy.

Be Inspired Blog Hop May 2019: Anything Goes

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to my second hop as part of the Be Inspired Design Team!

This month’s theme is…..Anything Goes!  YAY!  I still have a few creations that I made  back in April that I have yet to share with you.  So I decided this was the ample time to get them out there.  Most of them use a few items that are retiring (and maybe already gone) and I will list all current and retiring products for each creation.  I would love to hear YOUR favorite and why! 

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here!  I am so very honored.  I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too!  You can view my PDF Tutorial Library Here.   You can also subscribe to my Newsletter and Blog Updates so you don’t miss out on future posts!

148403 Bouquet Blooms Bundle

The Bouquet Blooms Bundle, as well as the Faceted Dots, from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog are retiring and only available through June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last. 

The dies included in this bundle are fabricated to create a gate-fold card.  Although I opted to make a standard card, I think the gate-fold card is incredible and would wow any recipient. 

The color combinations on this card are some of my favorite.  Coastal Cabana, my #1 go-to Stampin’ Up! color (can you tell from my blog?) paired with Blackberry Bliss are so yummy! The contrast in colors really make a statement.  

A pop of Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, and Soft Sea Foam compliment the main colors of the card.  The line-art images were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.  

Pair it with a sentiment from the Well Written Dies and you have the perfect thank you card for a friend. 

Artfully Aware Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Artfully Aware Stamp Set is carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and I am so excited for that.  I love the images and sentiments in this set, they are so “color friendly”.  An Aqua Painter & Classic Inks or Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers do a fabulous job adding the pop of color these images deserve. 

I used the Grapefruit Grove piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper as the mat of the main image.  This fabulous Designer Series Paper is retiring and only available through June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last.  

The Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon is such a gorgeous ribbon and coordinates with the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper well even though it is a slightly different color.  This ribbon is also retiring on June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last.  

Get these retiring items while you can!  They are an incredible addition to your paper craft collection.

This card also uses the Artfully Aware Stamp Set as well as the retiring Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  Don’t you think the color combinations and designs of this paper are just stunning? I am so happy I have this paper in my collection.  I have used it on several things, including scrapbook pages and handmade envelopes. 

Did you know that the Artfully Aware Stamp Set coordinates with the Support Ribbon Dies?  I love that the line art ribbon stamp can be quickly cropped with the coordinating die or the die can be used on its own with any Designer Series Paper or cardstock. 

The Metallic Pearls, Vellum Cardstock and Be Mine Stitched Dies (heart) are also carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Don’t miss out on all the bundles while they are still 10% off!  You can see ALL the current bundles that will either retire or no longer be available as a “bundle” in my online store here.   Purchase by June 3rd, 2019 before they retire or are no longer available as a 10% savings. 

 

Rooted in Nature by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and Nature’s Root Dies will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, BUT they will not be available as Clear-Mount, Wood-Mount, or as a bundle that saves you 10%!  So if you like the Rooted In Nature Bundle, get it while you can still save!

This Thinking of You Card also uses the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and the Faceted Dots that are soon to be gone for good.  

You can shop all retiring products (that are still available) by visiting my online store here

Don’t forget, Stampin’ Up! is transitioning to only producing Cling Mount and Photopolymer Stamp Sets.  The Clear-Mount & Wood-Mount Stamp Sets will no longer be available as of June 4, 2019.  The Stampin’ Trimmer and Big Shot (including all accessories) are also retiring.  Replacement products are to be released at a later date (TBD).

Be Inspired Blog Hop April 2019 : Watercolor

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header
Let it Ride Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Cards created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Welcome to my first hop as part of the Be Inspired Design Team!

I was so honored to be asked to join this amazing group of talented demonstrators from all over the world.  When I found out the first hop theme was “watercolor” I about jumped out of my chair!  Watercolor is my favorite coloring medium and I have several creations laying around, ready to be photographed and displayed on my blog.   

Let it Ride Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Cards created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

These two cards use images from the amazing Let It Ride Cling Stamp Set, first available in the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I was so happy to find out that this stamp set will be carrying over to the All New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog that begins on June 4, 2019.  Growing up with horses and family that are horse enthusiast, it tugged at my heart strings and I had to make sure it became a part of my collection. 

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here!  I am so very honored.  I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too!  You can view my PDF Tutorial Library Here.   You can also subscribe to my Newsletter and Blog Updates so you don’t miss out on future posts!

Let it Ride Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Cards created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I decided that I wanted to keep these cards neutral in color, so I stuck with Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Wood Texture Designer Series Paper as my color palette.  I love how they turned out and here is a step-by-step overview on how I created them so you can CASE them if you like. 

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.

Layer and adhere with Snail Adhesive, a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a die-cutting machine to crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the trellis die from the Rose Trellis Dies (No Longer Available, sorry). 

Take the wood circle from the Frame Elements and snip it in half.  Adhere to both sides of the trellis die-cut with Mini Glue Dots as shown.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut three 4″ pieces of the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Gently pull apart at the ends, creating a frayed look.  Adhere with Mini Glue Dots or small bits of Snail Adhesive. 

Zip a 3 3/4″ square of the white Wood Textures 6x6 Designer Series Paper through a die-cutting machine tucked inside the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder. Run through the die-cutting machine again, but this time crop out the center of the square with the 2 5/8″ Stitched Shapes Square Die. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. NOTE: Save the outer framed piece for the next card.

Stamp the horse image in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color using an Aqua Painter, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Adhere a wooden heart (Frames Elements) to the DSP with a Fine-tip Glue Pen.

Next up is this square 5 x 5 framed art style card. I stuck with the same neutral colors and rustic looking theme.  It truly is a simple card to recreate, it just takes a bit of work with Paper Snips, which just happens to be a therapy for me!

Let it Ride Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Cards created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.

Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5″ x 5″.  Tuck inside the Subtle 3-D Embossing Folder that has been lightly inked on one side with Soft Suede Classic Ink. Zip it through a die-cutting machine.  Adhere the frame (created from the previous card) to the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Wrap with several lopes of Linen Thread, securing with a bow.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Thread a piece of Linen Thread through a True Gentleman Button, securing with a bow.  Adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot. 

Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Snip apart and to size with Paper Snips. Adhere as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the horse image in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color using an Aqua Painter, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the trees in Soft Suede Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Blend the ink slightly with an Aqua Painter.  Adhere with Mini Glue Dots. 

Any other horse lovers out there?  I highly recommend the Let It Ride Stamp Set.  Also, be sure to snag those retiring items (Frames Elements & Wood Textures 6x6 Designer Series Paper) before they are gone for good!  They are available until June 3rd, 2019 or While Supplies Last.
