All three cards were created as follows: 

1) Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

2) Stamp a silhouette image from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set onto Whisper White Cardstock in a coordinating color. Snip with Paper Snips. 

3) Use Paper Snips to cut the section of the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper into card-sized sections.   Adhere to the card with  Stampin’ Dimensionals and trim off any designer series paper that hangs over the edges.

4) Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a coordinating piece of cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy (removes static). Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Use Paper Snips to closely trim the sentiment to size, then adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

5) Use a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop the sentiment die-cut (Sweet Silhouette Dies) in Whisper White Cardstock and a coordinating color.  Adhere together and to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Pals Blog Hop: It’s the Sentiment That Counts!

Pals Blog Hop July 2019 Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  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.

Create this card using the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

My hubby’s 46th birthday was on Monday and I made him this card using the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. This stamp set was inspired by 2 million dollar sales acheiver, Mary Polcin.  I had the honor of meeting her at the April 2019 Minneapolis OnStage, where we both presented.  Her presentation was introducing the 1200+ demonstrators in attendence to this stamp set.  The sentiment meant everything to her and it means the same to me.  ” You are BRAVER than you believe, STRONGER than you seem, SMARTER than you think, and LOVED more than you know. A.A. Milne”

Everyone needs to hear these words every now and then, and I thought it was a good time for my hubby to hear them. 

Create this card using the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

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

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4.  Apply Night of Navy (sky) and Mossy Meadow (ground) Classic Ink as shown with an Aqua Painter.  Allow to dry completely.

Gently rub the Night Navy portion with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiments (Rustic Retreat & Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Versamark Ink onto the Night of Navy portion as shown.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 

Squeeze some ink from a Whisper White Craft Refill onto a Clear Block B.  Grab with an Aqua Painter, trying not to squeeze out water, and flick onto the Night of Navy portion until you obtain the coverage desired. 

Stamp the cabin and tree line (Rustic Retreat) in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Ink Refills:  Mossy Meadow (trees),  Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, & Sahara Sand (cabin). Snip with Paper Snips and adhere as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you would prefer the splatter of white (stars) were a little brighter colored, you could flick with Versamark Ink and cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I would just recommend covering the areas you are planning on placing the sentiment covered so that the sentiment can be applied to a clean area and remains readable. 

Mini Curvy Keepsake Baby Shower Treats by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Just remember, when you watercolor, it isn’t necessary to stay within the lines and keep the edges clean.  Of course, it is always personal preference, but I like the look of going outside the lines.  A little imperfection can make a project feel a little more handmade.

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an awesome sketch challenge for you this week!  Simple and easily duplicated, this sketch can work for so many different stamp sets and shapes, truly endless possibilities.  

#madforplaid I LOVE PLAID! Buffalo check and classic plaid designs speak to me on so many levels.  The gorgeous gold foil accents that have been added to the Wrapped in Plaid 6×6 Specialty Designer Series Paper really push the beauty of the paper to the top!

GDP206 Sketch Challenge
Perfectly Plaid Bundle by Stampin' Up! Christmas Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Stitched Shapes circle die and the Stitched Labels edge die pair well together and fill the requirements of the sketch challenge well. The deep colors of Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce make for a great traditional colored Christmas Card. 

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

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Adhere a 1  1/2 x 5 1/4 piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock as shown with Snail Adhesive.

Crop a 1 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock through a die-cutting and embossing machine with the Stitched Labels edge die.  Adhere to the Shaded Spruce with Snail Adhesive. 

Zip a 1  1/4 x 5 1/4 piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

Crop the following circles with a die-cutting and embossing machine:  Shaded Spruce – 2 5/8 Layering Circle Die, Whisper White – 2 3/8 Stitched Shapes Circle Die, Cherry Cobbler – 2 1/8 Layering Circle Die.  Adhere together with Snail Adhesive and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Pine Tree Punch to crop two pieces of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  Adhere one with Snail Adhesive and one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment (Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set) in Versamark ink onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler 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 so only the ‘Christmas Cheer’ remains.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add three Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown.

Be Inspired Blog Hop: Embossing

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Embossing!  I decided to pair up both dry embossing and embossing powder…I even thought about Embossing Paste, but I will leave that for another creation.   

Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Bird Ballad Suite is ranked #1 (in my books) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I do believe it is the suite that I continually gravitate to when I sit down to create.   You can purchase the suite, or as a stamp and die bundle to save 10%!  You can see the entire suite of products in my online store here

Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

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

Watercolor wash a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, and Terracotta Tile Classic Ink with an Aqua Painter.  Allow to dry completely, then add another layer.  Allow to dry completely, then add a few water droplets.  Let the droplets sit for approximately 30 seconds, then remove with a paper towel.  Cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Tuck inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine.  Then, tuck inside the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and zip through again. Adhere to a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock with Snail Adhesive. 

Use a Daisy Punch to create the notches (top and bottom) to hold the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  Triple wrap the Whisper White Baker’s Twine, securing with a bow at the top. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Crop a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels Die. Cut to 3 1/2 wide (at the point).  Rub with an Embossing Buddy, then stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Greetings) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Use Paper Snips to snip the images from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Adhere one to the Vellum Nested Label and the other direct to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Vellum to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals that are hidden behind the bird image. 

Add 6 Coastal Cabana Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown. 

Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

My first thought on this card was to only emboss the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder…but I decided that didn’t give the Watercolor Paper quite the texture that I was looking for, so I decided to zip it through again using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the look of them both together!  So happy I stumbled across it. 

Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Everything I used on this creation is available to purchase NOW, except for the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels that will be available on September 4th, 2019 when the Holiday Catalog is available to customers.  You can purchase them NOW as part of the Extra, Extra Starter Kit Special!  Get $155 worth of product for just $99 + Tax!  YAY!

TGIF! It’s Time for a Technique Challenge!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for a technique!  Splatter!  My son has a birthday party today and I thought the Smooching Technique would be a perfect “SPLATTER” background for an 8 year-old that LOVES sports.  I paired it with the For the Win Stamp Set and alas, a perfect sports card for a sports lovin’ kiddo.  I even made it the school colors of Blue and Gold.

Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Birch

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Birch! I love, love, love the Birch Background Stamp!

The Stamp Review Crew, a ground of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Birch background stamp!  This stamp pairs with so many different sets and is perfect for masculine creations.  In today’s card, Birch paired with Nature’s Beauty, a sneak peek of a new stamp set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Nature’s Beauty is the “making a difference” stamp, which means for every stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 towards mental health organizations.  How amazing is that?  I don’t know if there is a family out there that hasn’t been affected, in some way or another, by mental health, so what a better way to help raise money for a cause and earn an amazing stamp set as well!

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I love the sepia look and I think the Birch Background stamp is stepped up by adding a little water and giving it a sepia feel. What do you think? 

Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Adhere a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Soft Suede to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Birch stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Use an Aqua Painter to add water to the lines of the Birch stamped image.  Cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 

Use the landscape die (In The Woods Dies) and a die-cutting machine to crop 3 1/4 x 4 piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Stamp the grass with a Clear Block A and Soft Suede Ink onto the two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water from an Aqua Painter.  Adhere together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the deer (Nature’s Beauty) and bushes in Soft Suede Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Add water with an Aqua Painter.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Soft Suede Ink 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 to size with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

What do you think?  Anything you would change or do differently? Do you like the watercolor look?  I love to hear your thoughts!

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

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.
