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.

Star of Light Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Starlight Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up! For a Christmas Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Here are the card details:

  • 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.
  • 2nd Layer is a Copper Foil Sheet cut to 4 in x 5 1/4 in and adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • 3rd Layer is Bermuda Bay Cardstock cut to 3 3/4 in x 5 in and adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • 4th Layer is Very Vanilla Cardstock cut to 3 1/2 in x 4 3/4 in.  I stamped the image and sentiment with Versamark Ink, added Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered it to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • 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.

Global Design Project 109 Color Challenge – Guest Designer

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!

If you would like to view my previous post that was picked as a winner, you can do so by clicking on the link below!

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.

You’ve Got This Stamp Set Shows It’s Beauty

You've Got This Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens and Aqua Painters #you'vegotthis #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafts #fussycutting

You’ve Got This Stamp Set Shows It’s Beauty

You’ve Got This! One of my favorite sayings.  What better way to encourage someone that is trying something new, starting a new job, etc. Words of encouragement go a long way, use them often in your vocabulary.  Make it a challenge to yourself to use a word of encouragement, make a brighter day for someone you know.

You've Got This Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens and Aqua Painters #you'vegotthis #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafts #fussy

Today we are enjoying a beautiful day on the lake!  My boys are super excited for the plans we have for today and tomorrow! Fishing, tubing, four-wheeling, campfires and time with friends.  We couldn’t ask for more perfect weather!

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Crumb Cake cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
  • Melon Mambo makes a debut as the 2nd layer to coordinate with the flower petals. 4.125 in x 5.375 in is the sizing and its adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Crumb Cake shines as the top layer.  It is cut to 4 in x 5.25 in and adhered to the Melon Mambo with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • I stamped the flower from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set in Versamark, added White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted it with the Heat Tool. White Embossing on Crumb Cake Cardstock is my absolute FAVORITE!  I used Watercolor Pencils (Old Olive and Melon Mambo) to add the color and then I used a Blender Pen to smooth it out.  It didn’t have enough dimension for me so I grabbed my trusty Aqua Painter and added a little bit of water and Melon Mambo to give it a tad more of a watercolor look.  Tip: Because I used Crumb Cake as my palette, you need to limit the water to ensure the cardstock doesn’t pill.
  • I grabbed a bit more Melon Mambo with my Aqua Painter, gave the brush a squeeze and then shook my Aqua Painter over the top of my creation give it the splatter effect.
  • I stamped the “You’ve Got This” sentiment in Versamark and then embossed in White.  I fussy cut around the letters as closely as possible.  I adhered it to the bottom corner of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a few sequins from the Metallic Sequins Assortment to finish off the card.

3-D Thursday – Ribbon of Courage Gift Bag

The start of a something new!  3-D Thursday! From now on, every Thursday I will be featuring a 3-D Project on my Blog! 1st Up: Ribbon of Courage Gift Bag!

Today’s project is a Striped Treat Bag (Available as a Pkg of 10) decorated with the All New Ribbon of Courage Bundle.  They are cute little bags that can be filled with just about anything! They are perfect for jewelry, cookies, candy, etc.

I love that the Ribbon of Courage Bundle can be used in more ways than one.  You can recognize the courage of those that have served our country or remember / bring awareness to those that have fought or are currently fighting a battle with cancer.  I used the color orange, which brings awareness to Blood Cancer.  My Grandpa, whom I was very close to, fought a battle against Blood Cancer.  I also have a fellow demonstrator that has recently been diagnosed and is just starting her battle.  So this post is dedicated to all those that have been affected, in some way or another, by Blood Cancer.

Treat Bag Details: 

  • I was about to write that I didn’t have a single bit of fussy cutting on this treat bag, but then I noticed the sentiment.  I did fussy cut the around the letters, but you sure could use a circle punch or circle die to frame the sentiment to make it easier.
  • I stamped all images and the sentiment in Versamark, added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and did the magic with the Heat Tool.  I then colored the images with Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • The Ribbon and Heart Stamped images (from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set) were cropped with the coordinating Framelit Dies.
  •  All other images were cropped with the dies from the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies using Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Lemon-Lime Twist Cardstock and Gold Foil.
  • I added the Metallic Enamel Hearts and the Gold Binder Clip as a final touch.

Birthday Blooms Card for Global Design Project 097

Birthday Blooms Card for Global Design Project

Global Design Project Color Challenge 097 Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi by Stampin' Up! #GDP097

Global Design Project Color Challenge is front and center on my blog today! #GDP097.  I had just created a card with a very similar color combination of Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo and Garden Green, but used the You’ve Got This Stamp Set (it will be featured on my blog in the days to come).  So, I decided to use a similar layout, the new color combination of Crumb Cake, Berry Burst and Wild Wasabi but changed the stamp set to Birthday Blooms.

The Birthday Blooms Card uses another stamp set that I had on my list of sets that I needed to show some love.  I think Birthday Blooms works perfectly for this color combination and the use of White Embossing Powder for the line detail.  It works well against the Crumb Cake Cardstock background!

Birthday Blooms Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for Global Design Project 097 Color Challenge Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi find at Stampin' Hoot, Stesha Bloodhart #GDP097 #stampinup #colorchallenge #birthdayblooms #embossing #flowers #cardmaking #handmade #imadethis #demonstrator #fussycutting

Card Details:

  • Card Base Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.
  • Berry Burst Cardstock is cut to 4 1/16 in x 5 3/16 in and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Crumb Cake was used again and cut to 4 in x 5.25 in.  I added Berry Burst Classic Ink to an Aqua Painter, squeezed it and then shook it over the top of the card to get the ink splatter effect.
  • I stamped the Floral Images from the Birthday Blooms stamp set on Crumb Cake Cardstock in Versamark Ink. I then added White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated with the Heat Tool. After cooling, I fussy cut each image with my trusty Paper Snips!  Did you know you can get a set of Paper Snips free during the Month of July? Click here for details.(Christmas in July)
  • I added color to the flowers using Blender Pens.  Blender Pens are great to obtain a watercolor look on paper that is not so watercolor friendly, such as Crumb Cake. The Rose Petals are colored with Berry Burst and the leaves are colored with Wild Wasabi.  Tip:  The Crumb Cake Cardstock grabs the color quickly and hangs on tight to it.  So, you want to add the color first to the areas that you would like darker, then work your way out.  (I always started on the tips of the leaves first). You do not want to stay in one area for too long, otherwise the cardstock starts to pill (if you look closely you can see it a bit on the large rose).
  • I stamped the sentiments in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock and added the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to make them pop.  I fussy cut with the flow of the sentiments, I think they look lovely this way!
  • The Dear Friend sentiment was adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive, the flowers and other sentiment were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The final touch was added by strategically gluing (with a fine-tip glue pen) various sizes of Metallic Sequins to the card front and adding a few flowers to coordinate the envelope.  Although Crumb Cake Envelopes are no longer available, you can easily create one with Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board.

A Remarkable Foil Frenzy Gift Bag

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 108 Fabulous Florals #SIP108 #stampinup

I finally did it!  I decided that today was the day I was going to make a 3-D item to share with everyone.  I have been wanting to use the FoilFrenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper again so, I did a quick google search for “Gift Bags from 12×12 Paper” and I quickly found a tutorial on how to create one. I didn’t bookmark it and I can’t find it again, so unfortunately, I cannot give credit where credit is due.  It has very easy instructions so I will recreate them and share them with you soon!

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #108 just happens to be Fabulous Florals!  So I decided to play along and link up my creation!  This is my first time playing along with Stamp Ink Paper and I am excited for a new challenge!  Hop on over there and check out the SIP Designer Submissions and others playing along too!

Take a look at some more photos of my Remarkable Foil Frenzy Gift Bag!  There are some fun ones at the bottom of this post!

I stamped the flowers and greenery from the Remarkable You Stamp Set onto Whisper White Cardstock in Versamark Ink and then added Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder, heated it with the amazing 2-Stage Heat Tool to melt it and make an amazing outline of the images.  When you heat emboss images, it makes it so much easier to stay “in the lines” when you color with Stampin’ Write Markers.  The flowers were colored with the brush end of a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker and for the greenery I used my favorite color, the all new Lemon-Lime Twist.   I let the ink dry and then added another layer of color for some depth and dimension.

If you follow me, you know I love to Fussy Cut…so of course, I grabbed the Paper Snips (a must for fussy cutting) and snipped them out.  I had three sets flowers and three sets of greenery.  The greenery has a shoot coming out the right hand side and that wasn’t working for me.  So I cut those three shoots off the main branch and added them to my layout as needed to make it look full.  They were all adhered together with Fast Fuse Adhesive and adhered to the bad with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Remarkable You Stamp Set has several large images.  They are great for coloring with any medium.  Watercolors, Pencils, Markers, etc. You can see another one of my creations with this set here on my Pinterest Board : Cala Lilly Card. I colored the Cala’s with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter.

I had the flowers and greenery adhered to the bag and needed to add a sentiment somewhere.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted it up top on the flap that I added or somewhere else.  I decided to first stamp the images with Versamark, Heat Emboss the Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then cut to size and flag the end (using the Banner Triple Punch).  I was playing around with where it would fit best and it just kinda fell into place in that bottom left corner.  The greenery shaped the sentiment, so it was the perfect placement.   I added a few Copper Metallic Sequin Assortment with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to finish it off.

I have to share a few photos with you of the other paper crafter in our house.  My 5-year old Parker loves to make cards with me and watch me like a hawk.  I take my photos on our flooring in front of our patio door (it gives off the best natural light for photos).  He dropped to the floor and made sure to pop in on some of them, so I just had to include them in my post.
