Snip the flower topper image with a Paper Snips. Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Dark Lovely Lipstick, Light Flirty Flamingo, Dark Soft Sea Foam.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the look of white embossing on Crumb Cake cardstock.  The All My Love 12x12 Designer Series Paper sets the color combination for this card.  The color to my stamped images has been added with our lovely Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers.  They are a staple in my craft room and I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them….well, I would watercolor, but I love the blends just as much.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop December 2018

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to my final Scrapbooking Global – Design Team – Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Holiday Happenings.

I decided to use the Merry Christmas Thinlits as they pair well with the Large Letters.

If you’d like to participate in our monthly challenge and hop, you can join in the fun via our Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group!

This scrapbook page is bittersweet.  On December 4th, 2018, just two weeks ago, my Mother-in-law, Karen, lost her battle with Alzheimer’s/Dementia.  Her celebration of life was held on December 16th and this is a photo that we had on display.  Karen is on the left, and her older sister, Bev, is on the right. They shared a room for the last two years and Bev (along with the rest of us) will miss her dearly. 

At her celebration of life, we honored her with her love of snowman.  She had 100’s and loved them because they always had a smile on their face.  The suits wouldn’t have been more perfect for the occasion.

The Letters For You Photopolymer Stamp Set paired with the coordinating Large Letters Framelits Dies makes quick and easy scrapbook titles.  The Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies was the perfect font to finish the Merry Christmas title.  Only 2 weeks left to purchase it as a bundle and save 10%!  

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I thought that the stamp sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All Photopolymer Bundle was perfect for this page.  With Bev in her “Bah Humbug” hat, which makes me chuckle, just gave that sentiment the perfect meaning.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The Make a Difference Photopolymer Alphabet Stamp Set is so easy to use and allows you to customize any word you prefer.  Since this page represents sisters, I kept it simple and left it with one word.

Pals Blog Hop December 2018 : Beautiful Blizzard

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

 Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

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.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper to 3 3/4″ x 5″.   Remove the center leaving about a 1″ thick frame. 
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 5″ then use the background stamps to stamp Versamark Ink and cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick away the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 
  4. Use an Aqua Painter to add a Bermuda Bay watercolor wash onto the Shimmery White.  Remove the excess ink from the embossed images with a paper towel.   Adhere to the Silver Glimmer Paper and card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Use the Blizzard Thinlits Die (currently on sale for $23.80) to crop Silver Glimmer Snowflakes using the Big Shot and Precision Base Plate.  Adhere the snowflakes as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Without removing the cardstock, stamp again using Versamark Ink and cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove excess and set with a Heat Tool.   Cut to 1″ x 3 1/2″.  Wash with an Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay Ink.
  7. Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels as a final touch. 
Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The Silver Glimmer Paper is drop dead gorgeous!  The perfect example of all that Sparkles & Shines!  With the newly designed thinner Glimmer Paper, it is much more die-cut and punch friendly.  Glimmer paper is available in 4 stunning colors:  Gold, Sparkle, Rose & Silver.  

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Rhinestone Basic Jewels is another item from Stampin’ Up! that sparkles.  It is the perfect compliment to the sparkle of the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Tip:  If you want the Rhinestones to color coordinate with your project, use a Stampin’ Blend Marker to dye them the color of your choice. 

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Want an embossed look but don’t have the correct embossing powder?  Stamp the image or sentiment in your choice of ink.  Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image again in Versamark in (it will stamp in the exact spot, just leave the cardstock in place), cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and you have your custom color!

I feel like I am still dreaming!  Being chosen as a member of the 2019 Artisan Design Team is still unreal to me.  I decided to use upcoming products from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs (Available January 3, 2019) to create a page with photos of my Artisan Gift Box that I received in November at OnStage in Orlando, FL.
Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
The “Thank You So Very Much” sentiment (Butterfly Gala Bundle, shown below) seemed to be perfect for my page for showing gratitude to Stampin’ Up! for giving me this opportunity.  The black & white butterflies on the left were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and cropped using the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.  I then stitched them to the designer series paper using my We R Stitch Happy Sewing Machine.
Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - Layout by Design Team Member Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
The colored butterflies were also cropped with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, FREE with a $50 Purchase during Sale-a-Bration (also available January 3, 2019) is gorgeous!  Black and White images on one side (the polka dot pattern on my page) and beautifully colored images on the other (the butterflies around my photos).
