A Christmas Card for GDP114 Sketch Challenge

Global Design Project Sketch Challenge 114 #GDP114

Welcome, Welcome!  This week is a VERY BUSY WEEK!  I will have two to three posts almost every day so be ready for lots of inspiration and Holiday Extravaganza Deals!

Global Design Project brings a Sketch Challenge #114!  I hadn’t dug into my Year of Cheer Suite of products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog as much as I would have liked (outside of the snowflakes), so after receiving the Year of Cheer Embellishments from my upline, I decided to use those products for my card.  It is SO HARD to get a good photograph of metallics, I think I must have taken 3 dozen + photos with different lighting, backgrounds etc. I picked the ones I felt showed off the shimmer of the silver the best.  This card reminded me of a White Christmas!

 

Year of Cheer Suite of Products by Stampin' Up! for GDP114. Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. #GDP114 #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #yearofcheer

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11 in and scored/folded at 5 1/2 in.
  • 2nd Layer is Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper cut 1/8 smaller at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Silver 3/8 in Metallic Edge Ribbon was wrapped once around the DSP and adhered to the back with Fast Fuse.
  • Silver 1/8 in Ribbon was wrapped around the card and secured with a bow.
  • I cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 2 1/4 x 6 1/4 in. I then cut six pieces of Silver Foil to 1 in squares with my Stampin’ Trimmer.  I added a strip of Fast Fuse to the back to hold my White Solid Bakers Twine in place while I added the Year of Cheer Charms and tied a bow to secure it.  I then added Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered them, evenly spaced, to the Whisper White Cardstock Strip.
  • I stamped the Merry Christmas Sentiment (from the Half Full Stamp Set) in Versamark onto Whisper White Cardstock. I covered it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool. Then I fussy cut it with Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to all 6 squares and the center of the bursts on the DSP.

A Christmas Wreath for GDP113 Color Challenge

Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set and Leaf Punch by Stampin' Up! Create a Beautiful Christmas Wreath Card for GDP113 Color Challenge. Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #GDP113 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to a Color Challenge with the Global Design Project!  I just love these colors of Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz for Christmas!  So I decided to grab the Leaf Punch and use it to create a Christmas Wreath as I have seen others do.  I love the results and I hope you do too!

Cherry Cobbler is my favorite red.  So rich in color and it tends to coordinate well with so many others. I was leery about what I was going to do with the Pool Party, but it does work well with these colors. I decided to keep it subtle and make the Pear Pizzazz my main focus.

The first thing I did when presented with this color combination was grab my Designer Series Paper binder and made a search for a piece that had a color within this combination.  When I found the piece of Pear Pizzazz from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP Pack, I knew that is what I wanted to use for the start of my design.

The leaves reminded me of the Leaf Punch and I have been wanting to try the wreath that my upline, Mary Fish, first presented about a month ago.  I love the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog and wanted to incorporate it into my design as well. The sentiment ‘Merriest Christmas Wishes’ called-to me and I envisioned it within the center of my wreath. In order to make a wreath big enough to encase the sentiment, I decided to go with a 6 in x 6 in square card.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock cut to 6 in x 12 in and scored/folded at 6 in.
  • 2nd Layer is the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP cut to 5 3/4 in x 5 3/4 in, adhered with Fast Fuse.
  • 3rd Layer is Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut to 5 1/4 in x 5 1/4 in, adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • 4th Layer is Pool Party Cardstock cut to 5 in x 5 in, adhered with Fast Fuse.
  • 5th Layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4 7/8 in x 4 7/8 in, adhered with Fast Fuse.
  • I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Christmas in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink in the middle of the Whisper White Square.
  • I stamped 24 Leaf images from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz on Whisper White and quickly cropped them with the coordinating leaf punch. I then adhered the top leaf to another leaf, lining it up at the intersection of the three leaves and securing it with a Mini Glue Dot.  After gluing them all together, I then shaped it into a circle and secured it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I grabbed the Pool Party 3/8 in. Shimmer Ribbon, created a bow and adhered it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • I added Enamel Shapes in Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party as a final touch!

At Home With You Bundle : Christmas

At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Creates a Cute Christmas Card and Gift Bag by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #athomewithyou #christmascard

Today did not go as planned but I am happy that I still have something to share with you.  The At Home With You Bundle is one of my favorites from the 2017-2018 Holiday Catalog. I have created several projects for the InkBig Academy Design Team that I am going to share with you. Since everything is starting to navigate towards the upcoming Christmas Holiday, I thought I would start out with my Christmas Creations.

At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Creates a Cute Christmas Card and Gift Bag by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #athomewithyou #christmascard

A square card (5.5 in. x 5.5 in.) was the perfect canvas to create this front door scene.  The door was stamped in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  An easy way to create a realistic looking door!  It was then cropped out with the Big Shot coordinating framelits dies, included in the bundle.  All other images were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock and then colored with an Aqua Painter and Classic Inks.

Tip:  Crop out the images with the Big Shot, Coordinating Framelits and Magnetic Platform prior to coloring them.  Nothing more frustrating than coloring a perfect image only to get an imperfect crop cut.

I just love this feature of the At Home With You Bundle!  You can hide the sentiment behind the door that actually opens!  How fun is that?

The “house siding” was created by adding ink to the inside of the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder prior to sending it through the Big Shot and Whisper White Cardstock.

I just love the Striped Treat Bags.  The Gold Foil Stripes are gorgeous and it is so easy to dress up a quick gift bag or last-minute gift giving.  The all the Gold Embellishments and Ribbon that Stampin’ Up! offers, it is easy to coordinate with the treat bag.

The Merry Christmas Sentiment, along with several others included in the At Home With You Bundle, can quickly be cropped out with the Classic Label Punch.  Just enough room remained for me to add a couple Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles.

I love the Gold Metallic Thread to add behind your images.  It just adds so much to a creation with very little effort or $ moola! I thought to add more Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles as the decorations on the tree made it feel more like Christmas!

Star of Light Stamp Set & Dual Embossed Christmas Card

Today I am sharing another card that I created during the 2016 Holiday Season.  The Star of Light Photopolymer Stamp Set and coordinating Starlight Thinlits dies were introduced in the 2016 Holiday Catalog and have carried over to the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  They are a favorite of mine and I plan on creating more in the near future to share with you.

  • Card Base is Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 in x 8 1/2 in and scored/folded at 4 1/4  in.

  • Using a detailed die from the Starlight Thinlits Dies, I gently added Versamark Ink to the die prior to running it through my Big Shot with a foam pad instead of the cutting mat to deboss the image.  I then added Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder to the debossed image and set it with my Heat Tool.  I then used my Paper Snips to cut around my debossed image.
  • I added Copper Metallic Thread to the back of my image prior to adhering it to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Take a Look Back at Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Wishes Card!

Today I am taking a look back to a card I made last year when the 2016 Holiday Catalog came out.  I didn’t have my blog then, so I wanted to share what has to be one of my favorite Christmas Cards made with the Santa’s Sleigh Photopolymer Stamp Set, Coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Framelits Dies and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Most of the items I used on this card are still available, but if they are not, they can easily be swapped out for something else.  I’d love to hear what you think about this card.  Please feel free to leave a Comment Here.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White 12 x 12 cardstock cut to 6 in x 12 in and scored/folded at 6 in to create a square card.
  • I placed the top flap of the card inside the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and zipped it through the big shot to create the look of snow.
  • All images are from the Santa’s Sleigh Stamp Set and were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Watercolor Paper.  I then zipped all images through the Big Shot with their coordinating dies from the Santa’s Sleigh Framelits.
  • I colored each image with my Aqua Painter and Classic Inks:  Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Soft Suede.
  • I took Smoky Slate Classic Ink and grabbed it with my Aqua Painter to add the shading of the ground.  Since this is Whisper White Cardstock, be sure to keep light on the water.
  • I cut the Sentiment with my Stampin’ Trimmer and added the Flagged Ends with my Paper Snips.  I did the same with the DSP behind it, going to 1/4 inch larger in size.
  • I added a wrapping Metallic Thread behind the sentiment.  Note:  The Red is no longer available but you can purchase it in Black, Silver, Gold and Copper!
  • The Bells and Metallic Red and White Baker’s Twine are also No Longer Available but you can swap them out for any current Baker’s Twine and a Boxwood Wreath to wrap around the neck of the reindeer.
  • The final touches were added with Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes of Stars and Dots.
  • The Tree was adhered to the Card Base with Fast Fuse and the rest with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Welcome to an exciting post for me!  During the last Global Design Project Color Challenge, my card was selected as the winner, which means that I take the spot as Guest Designer for this week’s Color Challenge 109 featuring the colors of Old Olive, Basic Black and Gold.  This truly means a lot to me as it is my second go-round as a Guest Designer and I am ecstatic!

I don’t Heat Emboss all too often but when a metallic color is involved, Stampin’ Emboss Powder is the way to go for adding that touch of metallic.  I used Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder pretty heavily in my creation, but I think it worked well in the end.  The embossed sentiment was hard to photograph without it looking a tad on the blurry side, so please excuse my photography, I tried several attempts at making it look clear and soon just accepted it as is. 🙂

This was my first use of the Season Like Christmas Stamp Set.  I am slowly ticking away at my box of ‘unused’ items from my 2017 Holiday Catalog order.  I chose this set because I saw the colors of the challenge in the trees.  Old Olive was perfect for the Pine Needles, Basic Black worked well for the Tree Trunk/Branches and Ornaments/Dots and I stepped up the Snow to shimmering Gold!

I love dimension and add lots of dimension to all my creations.  Stampin’ Dimensionals get a lot of action in my craft room, as well as my Paper Snips.  Fussy Cutting is a therapy for me, it’s soothing and I think it really steps up a paper craft project. So, to give this project dimension, I fussy cut three of the 4-Step Stamping ‘Trees’ from the Seasons Like Christmas Stamp Set. Since the stamps are Photopolymer, they are clear and easy to see through to line-up for each step needed to create the beautiful tree.

I love flagged ends and add them to several of my cards and scrapbook pages.  They are easy to create with our handy Triple Banner Punch, which accommodates three widths (hence the name, triple).  On this project I just used one size, the 1/2 inch. I cropped 4 different flagged ends using different areas of the Merry Little Christmas DSP to build contrast.  I staggered them and glued them with Fast Fuse behind the Gold Foil.

I also took several stars from the Wood Hearts & Stars Elements.  Stamped Versamark on them, dipped them in the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  (I used a tweezers to hold on to the Star while heating it). I added the Gold Embossed Wood Stars to several areas of my card, using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them in place.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Basic Black Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
  • 2nd Layer is Gold Foil cut 1/8 in smaller than the card base at 4 1/8 in. x 5 3/8 in and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tip: With the Stampin’ Trimmer, cut out the center of the Gold Foil that will be covered with the next layer to get the most bang for your buck.
  • 3rd Layer is Merry Little Christmas DSP cut to 4 in x 5 1/4 in and adhered to the Gold Foil with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • I used the largest Stitched Shape Circle Framelit to crop out the Gold Foil circle and adhered to the bottom left corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I cut another piece of Gold Foil to 3 in x 4 in, staggered the flags I created with the Triple Banner Punch behind it and then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Basic Black Cardstock was cut 1/8 in. smaller than the Gold Foil (2 7/8 in. x 3 7/8 in.) . I used the Star stamp from the Seasons Like Christmas to stamp in Versamark and Heat Embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  It was adhered to the Gold Foil with Fast Fuse.
  • I stamped the two sentiments in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock, Heat Embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I cropped one with the 1 3/4 in. Circle Punch and cut the other to size (1/2 in x 2 1/2  before flagging) with my Stampin’ Trimmer.  I flagged the end with my Triple Banner Punch.  I added Gold Metallic Thread behind the circle sentiment and Wood Star Elements, Heat Embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (as stated above), to each piece.
  • The Trees were stamped on Whisper White Cardstock in the following order:  Old Olive for the Pine Needles, Basic Black Archival Ink for the Tree Trunk, Versamark for the Snow (two stamps) adding Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder heated with the Heat Tool and then Basic Black Archival Ink again for the Dots/Ornaments. I fussy cut each one and adhered with Fast Fuse and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Embossed Wood Star Element to the top of the tallest tree.
  • The two pieces on the top left were scraps from making my flagged ends on the bottom left. I staggered them, adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added two Gold Embossed Stars.
