My Artisan Instagram Tip: Ink Smooching

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Fable Friends Stamp Set!  Such a cute collection of critters that are fun and easy to color.  

As part of the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team, we are asked (and honored) to supply a tip to fellow stampers that is shared on Instagram by @stampinup.  My first tip was published back in February and I shared how you can use punches to create notches to hold twine and thread.  You can see that post here

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by 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″.

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 x 4 1/2″.  Smooch with Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

SMOOCHING INSTRUCTIONS:  Cut a Window Sheet down to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 or similar size.  Take the edge of a Classic Ink Pad and press it onto the Window Sheet multiple times, criss-crossing the edge to get decent ink coverage.  Use a Stampin’ Spritzer to apply three pumps of water onto the Classic Ink on the Window Sheet.  Carefully flip it over and gently apply to the piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (NOTE: You must use Shimmery White to get the effects shown). Pick it up off the Shimmery White and apply it again (in a different area) until the desired coverage is

obtained.  Set aside and let dry completely.

 

Use the Daisy Punch to crop two daisies of Vellum Cardstock.  Adhere together (alternating petals) and to the smooched cardstock with Mini Glue Dots.  

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 5/8″ x 3 1/2″.  Rub with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiment (Fable Friends) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the squirrel image (Fable Friends Stamp Set) in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Soft Suede (squirrel and daisy center), Coastal Cabana (sailor jacket), Old Olive (daisy leaf/stem), Crushed Curry (daisy petals).  Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere to the strip of Coastal Cabana with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add three Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins as shown.

The smooching technique is so simple and every background turns out different. You can add multiple colors of ink, add more ink for depth, or less for a softer feel.  The possibilities are endless!  Play, play, play and you will get a result that you love.

lilypad lake stamp set by stampin' up! card by stesha bloodhart, stampin' hoot

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Using an Aqua Painter, create a watercolor wash background on a piece of Watercolor Paper.  I used Classic Inks:  Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, & Crushed Curry. After the ink dries, crop out the background using a Big Shot and the largest label die from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.  Adhere to the center of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x  5 1/2″.  Crop the frame using the same Stitched Seasons Framelit Die.  Adhere to the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  4. Stamp the following images onto Shimmery White Cardstock using Stazon Ink:  Sun, Sail Boats, Lilypads, Crane. Crop with a Big Shot and the coordinating dies from the Lakeside Framelits Dies. Also, crop two grass die cuts of Shimmery White Cardstock.
  5. Color the images with an Aqua Painter.  Crane: Smoky Slate, Grass: Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz, Lilypad: Petal Pink, Old Olive, & Pear Pizzazz, Sail Boats:  Smoky Slate & Coastal Cabana, Sun: Crushed Curry & Mango Melody
  6. Adhere all images with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        #tgifc211 Just a Card #nolayers – Meet To A Wild Rose

        To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

        TGIF! It’s time for a challenge!
        Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week we are inspiring you with #simplestamping! Just a card, no layers!  #nolayers I don’t know if I have ever made a card that only has one layer, but you know, this was quick & easy to do…and I encourage you to give it a try.  

        My card is giving you a sneak peek to an image and sentiment from the All-New To A Wild Rose Stamp Set from the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, which goes live June 4, 2019. If you can’t wait until June 4 to get your hands on this amazing stamp set (which happens to be part of a bundle), add it to a $99 Starter Kit!  See details on the starter kit and joining me, The Hootenannies & Pals Communities, HERE!

        To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!(2)

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

        Stamp the rose outline image and “hello” sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as shown. 

        Color the images with the Following Stampin’ Blends:  Light and Dark Petal Pink, Light and Dark Calypso Coral

        Voila! That’s it!

        To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

        I wanted to show how simple a card could be, yet still have appeal to the recipient.  I didn’t spend a lot of time coloring, I could have and added much more depth and shading, but I decided I wanted to keep it simple and complete in under 10 min.  I accomplished that and I promise you can too.  All it takes is Whisper White Cardstock, Stampin’ Blends, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and Stamps.  I didn’t even take the time to edit my card and remove a few of the little smudges, because lets face it, smudges happen….and nothing needs to be perfect.  It is a handmade card that was made from the heart, the recipient will love it even with a tiny smudge or two. 

        To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

        Have I inspired you to try #simplestamping #nolayers Just a Card!  I have inspired myself to try more of them.  I can do it, and the recipient will love it all the same.

        Pals Blog Hop – More Than One Score – Mosaic Mood

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

        Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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.

        Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! WATERFALL Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

        I don’t normally create cards with more than one fold, I like them, they just are not at the forefront of my mind when I sit down at my craft desk.  I jumped on Pinterest to see what was out there, hoping to find some inspiration.  The first card that came up in my search was that of the talented Patty Bennett.  So I grabbed some inspiration from her creation and went to making it my own.  I didn’t look for measurements, I just figured I would come up with a similar card as I went.  I call this card a “waterfall” card, not sure if that is the correct term or not, but I’m going with it! 

        Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock to the following sizes: 

        • 4 1/4 x 11″ – Score and fold at 5 1/2″ (this is your main card base)
        • 4 x 10 1/4″ – Score at 5 1/4 (fold in) and 7 3/4″ (fold out) (this is your “waterfall” base)

        Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″. Adhere to the main card base with Snail Adhesive. 

        Adhere the longest piece of the “waterfall” base to the Soft Suede with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

        Cut a piece of the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper to the following sizes:  

        • 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″ – Adhere to the main card base with Snail Adhesive.
        • 3 7/8 x 2 3/8″ – Adhere to the front flap of the “waterfall” base with Snail Adhesive.

        Use a die-cutting machine to crop two Rectangle Stitched Die Cuts  (2 7/8 x 4″ and a 1 1/4 x 3 1/4″) of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiments (Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set) in Soft Suede Ink.  Adhere the large rectangle with Snail Adhesive and the small rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

        Use Paper Snips to snip three hummingbirds, two flowers, and two butterflies from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

        Adhere as shown, layering with wood Frames Elements (retiring as of June 3rd, 2019 or While Supplies Last) with Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

        Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! WATERFALL Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

        My card features a Sneak Peek to the All-New Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be available in the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, beginning June 4, 2019!  I received this paper at Stampin’ Up! OnStage in April.  It was an all attendee giveaway and I am so happy for that.  I think I would have overlooked its beauty if I had not see it in person.  

        Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! WATERFALL Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

        There are 12 different designs in the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  6 designs contain GORGEOUS embossed images that you can see in the photo above.  All images are “snip” friendly by following the border around the image.  My Paper Snips got a workout for this card, but it gave me my therapy for the day.  

        Create this friend card using the Artfully Aware Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

        Just a note, the wood Frames Elements that are used throughout this card are RETIRING as of June 3, 2019 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!  I usually struggle with the wood pieces, but the Frames Elements have been my favorite and are used on several of my creations.  If you love them, or even like them, get them while you can!

        GDP188 – CASE Brian King – Free As A Bird

        Sneak Peek Free As A Bird Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Thank You Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #gdp188

        Happy Monday Everyone!

        The Global Design Project has a CASE the Designer Challenge this week and the designer just happens to be my good friend and fellow Pal, Brian King!  I love Brian’s clean and simple style that showcases Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper in stunning ways.  I, of course, am always looking for excuses to use NEW PRODUCTS, so I jumped at the chance of using the All-New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog Products from the Bird Ballad Suite!  

        Ok, I know I said on Friday that the Magnolia Lane Suite was my favorite, but I may have to change my mind (and probably change it again)…the Bird Ballad Suite is PHENOMENAL and so my style.  I love all pieces this suite showcases AND I love to color with my Stampin’ Blends…this suite was made just for that!

        Sneak Peek Free As A Bird Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Thank You Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #gdp188

        All items will be available to customers starting June 4th, 2019, when the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live OR you can add them as part of the $99 Starter Kit TODAY! 

         

        Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″. Score and fold at 5 1/2″.

        Cut a piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

        Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 3 1/8 x 4 3/8″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

        Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 x 4 1/4″.  Use the Daisy Punch to notch a slot to hold your Linen Thread.  Wrap the Linen Thread around several times, securing with a bow. Stamp the sentiments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above and below the Linen Thread.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

        Adhere a Bird Ballad Trinket (key) with a Mini Glue Dot (or you can tie it on with Linen Thread).
