Beautiful Baubles GDP165 Color Challenge

Beautiful Baubles Bundle by Stampin' Up! Holiday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #GDP165 Color Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
Happy Monday Everyone! The Global Design Project has an awesome color challenge for you this week!  I love this color combination, it can fall into masculine and rustic, two of my favorite categories.  I feel the Beautiful Baubles Bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog is getting overlooked and it needs some love.  So…I whipped together this card, paired with Shimmer Paint and Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper for a stunning result. Agree?

Step-by-Step Instructions:
  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Stamp the multi-bulb image (Beautiful Baubles) in Jet Black Staz-On two times at the top. Cut a 5 in strip of Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon & Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon (both low inventory, so order SOON!).  Crop two bulbs with a Big Shot and the Joyous Noel 6×6 Glimmer Paper and slip in between the ribbon.  Adhere the ribbon and bulbs with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the multi-bulb image again (two times) on a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating dies from the Detailed Baubles Thinlits. Color with the brush tip of the Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  Add a touch of shimmer with Champagne Shimmer Paint and an Aqua Painter.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the “deck the halls” sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Snip with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Shimmer Paint!!  An amazing medium that is so easy to work with, it is such a bonus to have it as part of my craft room supplies.  I use an Aqua Painter to apply it on this Beautiful Baubles holiday creation, but you can also use Sponges, Sponge Daubers, Stamps and more to make your creations glimmer!  It comes in four amazing colors!

The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder brings vellum to life.  I love how you can still see through the Vellum, but it isn’t as lost against the white background of this card. I also used it for a few of the die cut greenery mixed in with the flowers.

Spirited Snowmen Trio of Holiday Cards

Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! A trio of Holiday Cards 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 colored cardstock (I used Real Red or Shaded Spruce) to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″. Adhere at a slant with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.  Smooch with Gray Granite Ink. (Click for Smooching Tutorial). Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Using the Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool, stamp the snowman image (Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set) in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Watercolor Paper.  Stamp as many times as needed for desired coverage.
  5. Add color to the snowmen with an Aqua Painter and Classic Inks.  I used Gray Granite (shading), Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso.  I grabbed black ink by touching the Aqua Painter against the brush end of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  Snip the image with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto colored cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess. set with a Heat Tool. Snip apart with a Paper Snips and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add three Red Rhinestone Jewels for just the right touch of bling.
The snowmen from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set are just adorable.  I love the couple and the cute heart tucked in behind the snowmen’s stick arm. The sentiments are the perfect match for the images.  Just a great stamp set all around.
Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! A trio of Holiday Cards by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
I thought Real Red paired perfectly with the snow couple.  The Gray Granite smooched onto Shimmery White Cardstock sets the stage for a beautiful snowfall.  I know it isn’t white, but I needed it to stand out and I feel it did the job well.
