Gold Mini Pizza Boxes!  The PERFECT pairing to the Christmastime is Here Suite! 

The Gold Mini Pizza Boxes were a tad brighter than I wanted them to be, so I distressed it with a sanding block.  I absolutely LOVE the result!  It is almost a matte finish and it pairs well with the Gold Foil Sheets. 

I wrapped the outside of the Gold Mini Pizza Box with the gorgeous Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon, securing it with Mini Glue Dots and a bow. 

The largest of the Rose Dies cuts out both the stamped image and the image from the Christmas Is Here Designer Series Paper.  The Stampin’ Up! colors in the Christmastime is Here Suite are: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade & Gold Foil! 

Many of the images from the Designer Series Paper are fussy cut friendly. I fussy cut several pieces for my five 3×3 cards shown below. 

Make sure you have some Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on hand!  I used them for the sentiments and accent pieces on both the Gold Mini Pizza Box decor and the 3×3 cards.  

The Gold Glitter Enamel Dots were added to each piece as the final touch!

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 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.

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.

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. 

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

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.

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.

Tie a bow of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Adhere with a rolled Mini Glue Dot.
