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!

    Be Inspired Blog Hop: Embossing

    Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

    Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

    This month’s theme is…..Embossing!  I decided to pair up both dry embossing and embossing powder…I even thought about Embossing Paste, but I will leave that for another creation.   

    Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    The Bird Ballad Suite is ranked #1 (in my books) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I do believe it is the suite that I continually gravitate to when I sit down to create.   You can purchase the suite, or as a stamp and die bundle to save 10%!  You can see the entire suite of products in my online store here

    Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

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

    Watercolor wash a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, and Terracotta Tile Classic Ink with an Aqua Painter.  Allow to dry completely, then add another layer.  Allow to dry completely, then add a few water droplets.  Let the droplets sit for approximately 30 seconds, then remove with a paper towel.  Cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Tuck inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine.  Then, tuck inside the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and zip through again. Adhere to a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock with Snail Adhesive. 

    Use a Daisy Punch to create the notches (top and bottom) to hold the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  Triple wrap the Whisper White Baker’s Twine, securing with a bow at the top. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    Crop a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels Die. Cut to 3 1/2 wide (at the point).  Rub with an Embossing Buddy, then stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Greetings) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

    Use Paper Snips to snip the images from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Adhere one to the Vellum Nested Label and the other direct to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Vellum to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals that are hidden behind the bird image. 

    Add 6 Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown. 

    Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    My first thought on this card was to only emboss the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder…but I decided that didn’t give the Watercolor Paper quite the texture that I was looking for, so I decided to zip it through again using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the look of them both together!  So happy I stumbled across it. 

    Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Everything I used on this creation is available to purchase NOW, except for the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels that will be available on September 4th, 2019 when the Holiday Catalog is available to customers.  You can purchase them NOW as part of the Extra, Extra Starter Kit Special!  Get $155 worth of product for just $99 + Tax!  YAY!

    Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Birch

    Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Birch! I love, love, love the Birch Background Stamp!

    The Stamp Review Crew, a ground of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Birch background stamp!  This stamp pairs with so many different sets and is perfect for masculine creations.  In today’s card, Birch paired with Nature’s Beauty, a sneak peek of a new stamp set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Nature’s Beauty is the “making a difference” stamp, which means for every stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 towards mental health organizations.  How amazing is that?  I don’t know if there is a family out there that hasn’t been affected, in some way or another, by mental health, so what a better way to help raise money for a cause and earn an amazing stamp set as well!

    Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    I love the sepia look and I think the Birch Background stamp is stepped up by adding a little water and giving it a sepia feel. What do you think? 

    Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

    Adhere a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Soft Suede to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Birch stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Use an Aqua Painter to add water to the lines of the Birch stamped image.  Cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 

    Use the landscape die (In The Woods Dies) and a die-cutting machine to crop 3 1/4 x 4 piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Stamp the grass with a Clear Block A and Soft Suede Ink onto the two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water from an Aqua Painter.  Adhere together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Stamp the deer (Nature’s Beauty) and bushes in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water with an Aqua Painter.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Soft Suede Ink 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. Snip to size with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

    Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    What do you think?  Anything you would change or do differently? Do you like the watercolor look?  I love to hear your thoughts!

    Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Do you struggle with masculine cards?  I hear that a lot, but masculine cards are some of my favorite to create…it may be because of the way I was brought up (horses, hunting, and more) so they come easier to me, not sure, but I truly hope I am inspiring others to help create more masculine creations.
