Step by Step Tutorial Button

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

Use a Bone Folder to distress the edges of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 4 1/4. Cut at an angle to create a 2 1/4 wide piece. 

Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove any excess then set with a Heat Tool. 

Use a Sponge Dauber or Stamping Sponge to add Night of Navy Classic Ink.  Remove the ink from the embossed snowflakes with a Paper Towel. 

Use an Aqua Painter or brush to flick specks of water onto Night of Navy Ink.  Let sit for 1 min, then dab with a Paper Towel. 

Staple a loop of Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon as shown. 

Distress the edges with a Bone Folder.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Seal. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment first in Night of Navy Ink, then again in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Snip closely with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and So Many Snowflakes Dies to crop three snowflakes from a piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper.  Adhere as shown with Mini Glue Dots. 

Embellish with Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems & Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments. 

Snowflake Splendor Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Stampin' Seal Gift by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

Did you know that multiple dies from the So Many Snowflake Die Set perfectly crop images from the Snowflake Splendor Designers Series Paper?  The snowflakes adorning on my 3-1/8 x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Box were quickly cropped from the DSP. 

I also discovered that the 3-1/8 x 3-1/8″ Acetate Card Boxes are a perfect gift box for our Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Seal+ refills! 

Snowflake Splendor Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas 3x3 Gift Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

I love that you can stamp a sentiment, then snip it apart to piece it as needed on your project!   It doesn’t have to be perfect!  Handmade creations are fabulous with a few flaws, at least I think so! 

This 3×3 card also fits snuggly into the 3-1/8 x 3-1/8 Acetate Card Boxes.

Merry & Bright with Red & Green Foil Sheets

Merry & Bright Mini Pizza Box and Slimline Card with Red & Green Foil From Stampin' UP! Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I always have the best intentions to use all my supplies on hand…I mean, why else would you buy them, right? LOL! 

I have a lot of specialty papers in my stash that never get the love they deserve, so I decided to give some love and attention to the Red & Gold Foil Sheets (Item 153510) from the 2020 August – December Mini Holiday Catalog! 

Bright Slimline Card using the Joy Dies from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!
Bright Slimline Card using the Joy Dies from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Slimline cards are all the rage right now and I absolutely love the look…but they can be tricky to design and fill up.  I create the size that I want, regardless of whether it fits in a #10 envelope.  

This one is a tad smaller than a “standard” slimline. 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 6 3/4 x 8.  Score and fold at 3 1/2.

Cut a piece of Green and a piece of Red Foil to 8 x 1/2. Adhere to the bottom of the card stacked as shown.

Crop several circles of Green and Red Foil using a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, along with the following dies:

  • Layering Circle Dies (Smaller Sizes)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies (O & 9)
  • Wreath Builder (Circle)

Adhere and trim as shown with Stampin’ Seal, Mini Glue Dots & Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the three layers of “Bright” in Whisper White, Green & Red Foil. 

TIP: Adhere the Red Foil to an Adhesive Sheet prior to cropping it so that it can easily be adhered to the Green Foil.

    Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle & Snow Globe Scenes Dies from Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! Pals Blog Hop

    Ok, I have to confess, my creation for today’s blog hop is not a fun fold.  Fun folds are not my forte and I decided that I am going to focus on the “retiring” portion of the hop instead.  So….today’s creation uses the following retiring and carryover products: 

    RETIRING: Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle

    CARRYOVER:  Still Scenes Bundle. 

    The Holly Jolly Christmas Bundle is available until January 2, 2020 or While Supplies Last, whichever comes first!  The Still Scenes Bundle has made 

    Copper Tea Tins from Stampin' Up! 3X3 Card holder created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team Member

    Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock  to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

    Use a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Use an Aqua Painter along with Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry Ink to create the night sky background. Note: I first apply water to the Shimmery White Cardstock, then I apply Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry Ink in an upward motion.  Set aside to dry completely.

    Use the edge die from the In The Woods Dies along with a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Note: You will have to crop two pieces and piece them together. I covered the crease with a set of trees.  Add a light shadow of Smoky Slate Cardstock with an Aqua Painter.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Stamp the group of trees (Holly Jolly Christmas) three times in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Color with an Aqua Painter and Shaded Spruce Ink. Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Crop the church (Snow Globe Scenes Dies) using Shimmery White Cardstock.  Shade with Smoky Slate and add lights with Crushed Curry Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter. Adhere together and to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Crop a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. Add shading with an Aqua Painter and Smoky Slate Classic Ink.  Adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional. 

    Crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the die from Jolly Seasons Dies.  Add glitter with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive (to the moon) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Stamp “Believe” 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 and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    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!

        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.
        • Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the pine tree, deer and sentiment onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Crop the pine tree and deer with the coordinating framelits and a Big Shot.  Snip the sentiment to size with a Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        • Using the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock.  Note: It may take a few applications to get the desired coverage. Cut to 5 1/4″ to 4 1/8″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
        • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 3 1/8″ x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        • Add Linen Thread to the center of a True Gentlemen Button then secure to the corrugated cardstock as shown.
        • Stamp two trees (Winter Woods) in Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock. Crop with a Big Shot and the coordinating framelit die.
        • Crop two twig images with the framelit and Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Adhere all as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        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.
