Outside of the fussy cutting, this card was quick and easy to create!  I needed that, as I didn’t start on it until 6:45 pm and I finished with time to spare!

When watercoloring the vases, start with a light layer on the entire image.  Let dry completely, then add more color for depth.

Pals Blog Hop August 2018 – Cut It Out

Welcome to the Pals August 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits, and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

 

Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Birthday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for Pals Blog Hop August 2018 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Cut it Out! Lilypad Lake Birthday Card

Since the Lilypad Lake Bundle has die cuts that coordinate with all the stamped images, I decided to use that set to create a birthday card for the Pals Blog Hop: Cut it Out!  The largest die cut from the Limited Release Stitched Season Framelits creates a framed card scene that makes the card stand out.

Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Birthday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for Pals Blog Hop August 2018 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Using an Aqua Painter, create a watercolor wash background on a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I used Classic Inks:  Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, & Crushed Curry. After the ink dries, crop out the background using a Big Shot and the largest label die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  Adhere to the center of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x  5 1/2″.  Crop the frame using the same Stitched Seasons Framelit Die.  Adhere to the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  4. Stamp the following images onto Shimmery White Cardstock using Stazon Ink:  Sun, Sail Boats, Lilypads, Crane. Crop with a Big Shot and the coordinating dies from the Lakeside Framelits Dies. Also, crop two grass die cuts of Shimmery White Cardstock.
  5. Color the images with an Aqua Painter.  Crane: Smoky Slate, Grass: Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz, Lilypad: Petal Pink, Old Olive, & Pear Pizzazz, Sail Boats:  Smoky Slate & Coastal Cabana, Sun: Crushed Curry & Mango Melody
  6. Adhere all images with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Birthday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for Pals Blog Hop August 2018 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The card is fairly simple to create, I recommend using a fair amount of water when creating the watercolor wash background.  I applied the ink at an angle, adding a bit more ink to spots that I wanted a little deeper tone.

Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Birthday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for Pals Blog Hop August 2018 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

When coloring the images with an Aqua Painter, you want to use very little ink and water, adding ink to areas to create a shading effect, little by little. I like to cover the image very lightly with the base color, then slowly add more ink to spots that I think might have a shadow cast.

You can also use Shimmery White Cardstock as the base for your watercolor wash background.  I tend to gravitate towards Watercolor Paper as it absorbs more water and I can get a bit more of a washed look.

I wasn’t able to get a post written earlier this week for the GDP147 Theme Challenge: Country/ Farm Life! I had my card all ready but I just didn’t have the time for a post until now.

The Heartland stamp set is the perfect stamp set for this challenge and one that is great to color with Stampin’ Blends!

Heartland Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the #gdp147 Theme Challenge Country / Farm Life #steshabloodhart #Stampinhoot

I love these images, they remind me of my childhood.  My grandparents had a dairy farm and we had a small horse farm.  The “H” tractor and the neighbor’s geese are still fresh in my mind.  Coloring these images takes me back…but also makes me miss my father and grandfather.

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an awesome sketch challenge for you this week! My MIL turned 79 on Friday so I used this sketch to make a card showcasing all of her favorite flowers, which are all a part of the In Every Season Stamp Set. I used a piece of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE sale, as part of my card base!

I love the Smooching Technique and this time I used a lot of ink on a little surface.  I covered the entire image with my first application of ink, let it dry completely, then added a few more dark spots for detail.  I love the way it looks, so pretty!

Celebrate You Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy 4th Everyone!  Be safe out there!

Every year since my husband and I have been together, we gather with his family to celebrate the oldest nephew’s birthday.  This year he turns 19 years old and has graduated from High School!  There may not be many more gatherings with him off to college and starting a life of his own.  Happy Birthday, Johnny!

Celebrate You Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:  

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Zip through the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″.
  4. Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  Cut at an angle up to 2 7/8″ or to your preference.  (Note: I didn’t measure this cardstock. I grabbed a scrap piece of Bermuda Bay, covered the Whisper White until I got the angle I was going for, then cut the top and sides to match the Whisper White).
  5. Cut a 1/2″ x 3 3/8″ strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock and Bermuda Bay Striped Ribbon.  Adhere (Snail Adhesive) to the back of the Bermuda Bay Cardstock (as shown) to match the angle. Snip the ends to line-up with the cardstock edge.
  6. Adhere to the Whisper White and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Using the Big Shot, crop the following pieces of cardstock using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies:  Celebrate – Shimmery White, Amazing – Lemon Lime Twist & Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, You – Bermuda Bay
  8. Color the Celebrate as shown with an Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink.
  9. Adhere the Celebrate and You with snipped to size Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, crop 1 large balloon and 2 small using your choice of Designer Series Paper.  I used Bermuda Bay 6x6 and Animal Outing.
  11. Stamp the Banner (Birthday Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Bermuda Bay Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Lay the Happy Birthday sentiment to match the curve of the banner, then pick up with Acrylic Block G.  Mask the “to the” with Washi Tape. Ink with Lemon Lime Twist.  Remove Washi Tape and stamp within the banner.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform & Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.
  12. Adhere 3 small pieces of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine to the back of the balloon bottoms. Tie pieces together, securing with a simple knot.
  13. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  14. Add three Glitter Enamel Dots as shown.

Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist are one of my favorite color combinations.  I think it works well for a young adult, not too girly but bright and cheery to set the mood!

I LOVE coloring an ombre effect with Shimmery White Cardstock and an Aqua Painter.  This is my 4th time using this technique and it’s still not getting old!  Have you tried it yet?

Making slant cuts brings another dimension to a card.  I need to implement that more often in my creations, it is very pleasing to the eye!

GDP144 : Meet Very Vintage Hostess Set

Very Vintage Hostess Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the #gdp144 Case the Designer Challenge. Handmade Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Ok, so I am a little late to the game!  Very Vintage gets it’s debut on my blog today!

The Global Design Project is casing the extremely talented Charlet Mallet this week!  I wasn’t able to get my project done in time for the Monday Go Live deadline, but I couldn’t let the chance to CASE Charlet pass me by. I decided to ink up the Very Vintage Hostess Set and create a quick birthday card!

I have to say that Grapefruit Grove is becoming one of my favorite colors!  I continue to grab it for my creations and I love the soft feel it portrays. I wasn’t active when Mossy Meadow was an In Color, so I am happy that I get the chance to use it on my creations now!  It is a beautiful green with a vintage feel.

I normally do not mix Vanilla and White cardstock, but it worked well on Charlet’s card, so I decided to embrace it and use it on mine as well.  I think it makes the focal image pop!
