Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Happy Birthday Card

Artistically Inked Bundle by Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Magenta Madness Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

 Beautiful Pop of Pink with Artistically Inked!

My sister-in-law had her birthday on Saturday.  She just happens to LOVE hot pink and Magenta Madness does the trick!  I created this card with her in mind.  I think Basic Black is Magenta Madness’s BEST FRIEND.

I absolutely love the depth and definition that you get when using the Distinktive Stamp Set Collections from Stampin’ Up!  EASY PEASY!  Just keep in mind, to get a good image with the Distinktive stamps, use an ink pad that is not overly saturated.

Step by Step Tutorial Button

For this trio of cards, I used all the same supplies, just changed up colors and positioning. I used the following colors for cardstock and classic inks:  Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, and Cinnamon Cider.   

Begin by using a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use the Paper Smooching technique to add the coordinating color of ink to a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  

Zip a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 piece of Vellum Cardstock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. 

Use a Stamping Sponge or Blending Brush to add the coordinating color of ink to the Vellum Cardstock.  Use a Heat Tool to set the ink. 

Take a Versamark Ink Pad and apply directly to the Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere to the Shimmery White with Stampin’ Seal. 

Wrap with Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, securing with a bow.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal. 

Use the 2-1/4, 2 and 1-1/2″ Circle Punches to crop pieces of Vellum Cardstock.  Position and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the images in Versamark Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Crop with the coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Color with coordinating ink and Water Painters. 

Stamp the “special delivery” image in Versamark Ink onto coordinating colored Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Cut out with Paper Snips. 

 Use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to crop two pieces of coordinating cardstock.  

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

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in coordinating classic ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Trim to size with a Paper Trimmer. 

Color Pear Basic Jewels with the coordinating Dark Stampin’ Blend markers.  Embellish as shown.

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.

Pals Blog Hop : In the Pines Masculine Birthday

Pals-Blog-Hop-275x275-1

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Buffalo Check, In the Pines, Coming Home and More from Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Today just happens to be my hubby’s birthday so the featured card was made especially for him.  We love cabin life, relaxing in the outdoors, fresh air, lake life you name it.  With the weather comes the resurrection of my buffalo plaid collection, as well as my Buffalo Check Background stamp! I paired it with the In the Pines Bundle, the Coming Home Bundle as well as sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays and  Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets.  

Buffalo Check, In the Pines, Coming Home and More from Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  Use a Paper Trimmer to cut down to 4 x 5 1/4.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder.

Double wrap the bottom with Linen Thread, securing with a bow as shown.

Stamp the trees (In the Pines), Cabin (Coming Home), Happy Birthday (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.

Use the 2-Step Stamps to add the Mossy Meadow Ink to the pine trees.

Color the cabin with a Water Brush using Soft Suede and Mango Melody Classic Inks.

Crop the trees and cabins with the coordinating dies (Pines Woods, Home Together) and a Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.

Trim the Happy Birthday sentiment to size (1/2 x 2 1/4) with a Paper Trimmer.

Adhere all pieces as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Seal. 

Stamp the sentiment (Peaceful Moments) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock (twice).  Color with a Mango Melody Dark Stampin’ Blends. Crop one with a 2″ Circle Punch.  Snip the “Joy” out of the 2nd with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Seal.

Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Winter Woods

Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Winter Woods! I absolutely LOVE this Stamp Set and coordinating dies!

The Stamp Review Crew, a ground of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set!  This stamp set has a coordinating die set called Into the Woods.  Although the cards created below are not new, they are my most popular Pinterest Pins for a year’s running.  Since I ran out of time to create something new (story of my life these days it seems) I decided to re-share these creations in case you may have missed them the first go-round. 

Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Good News!  The True Gentleman Buttons are back in the CLEARANCE RACK and marked down to $2.80!  What a steal!  I used them on both of my card creations as they pair so well with the Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets. 

  • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5″ x 2 1/2″.  Stamp the Birch Trees in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Using the Stamparatus, stamp the Buffalo Check in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as many times as needed for desired coverage.  Cut down to two 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, using the check pattern as a guideline.  Crinkle/distress the edges. Wrap 4 loops of Linen Thread around one of the pieces.  Adhere a True Gentleman Button (with Linen Thread) with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Crop the Merry with a Big Shot and Basic Black Cardstock.  Snip Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to size and adhere to the card.

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.
