Signs of Santa Bundle by Stampin' Up! Holiday Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Those darling little elves from the Signs of Santa Bundle make me go, “ahhhhh, so cute”, each and every time that I see them.  Better yet, they are so fun to color with Stampin’ Blends.  Did you know:  The framelits from the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies crop out both the stamped images and the images from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper? More bang for your buck!

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.

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.

Shaded Spruce is a perfect green for Christmas. I don’t think I used it yet, but it may get a workout now that I see how perfect it is for Christmas cards. I am determined to send cards out this year…:).

Snowflake Showcase

I have been itching to use the In-Color Embossing Powders, so when I started to create this card, I first embossed the tree from the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set using the Call Me Clover Embossing Powder.  It is so vibrant and beautiful, I love it! So after I had the tree created, I decided to flick on color with my Stampin’ Write Marker and then smooched on some.  You can see a tutorial on the smooching technique here. SMOOCHING TECHNIQUE

So, this card was my very first shot at sewing…and I had to do it twice.  The first time through, I didn’t have something set right and all I did was make pierced holes in my card….so, I ran it through again and accepted the finished product, hence the open holes (and the not so straight stitches).  It didn’t deter me though, I shared a card earlier (Alpine Adventures) that has some straight stitches and it worked the 1st time through.
