Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for our Retirement Fun Fold Party  – showcasing our favorite products from the Holiday Catalog that will be leaving us forever. 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.

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.

Add a Red Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the bow.

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.

      • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
      • 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.
      • Stamp the birch trees (Winter Woods Stamp Set) multiple times in Soft Suede Ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock. Cut to 3″ x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
      • Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 1 1/4″ x 5 1/8″.  Zip through the Big Shot tucked inside the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Use the tip of a petal from the Daisy Punch to notch the ends.  Wrap 3 loops of Linen Thread, securing to the back with Snail Adhesive.  Crinkle the edges.
      • 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.
      • Stamp the sentiment (Big Wishes Stamp Set) in Soft Suede Ink onto a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Trim to size and adhere with 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.

      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?

      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.

      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!
