Best Catch… Happy For You, Dad Masculine Card

Best Catch Bundle by Stampin' Up! Masculine Happy For You Dad Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Best Catch Cling Bundle!

With Father’s Day on the horizon, I decided to create a masculine card with the Best Catch Cling Bundle and coordinating Crackle Paint background stamp. Pair it up with Crumb Cake Cardstock and Soft Suede Classic Ink and you have the recipe for a fabulous masculine creation.  

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies work wonders to create frame elements and more to step-up your paper craft creations.  Do you have them in your stash of craft supplies?

 

Buy the Best Catch Bundle from My Online Store, Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
Best Catch Bundle by Stampin' Up! Masculine Happy For You Dad Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. Crinkle the corners and edges with your fingers or a Bone Folder.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Crackle Paint Background Stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Zip through the Big Shot with the Magnetic Platform and 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. Adhere the interior cropped rectangle to the Soft Suede with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Crinkle a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2″ piece of Vellum Cardstock and adhere with Mini Glue Dots. 
  5. Take the exterior cropped rectangle, snip and reduce the size by 1/2″. Crinkle and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Stamp the trout, fisherman, and sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform.  Color with Watercolor Pencils and blend with a Blender Pen. Snip the sentiment to size with a Paper Snips. 
  7. Crop the “happy” sentiment using a Big Shot, Well Written Framelits, and Mossy Meadow Cardstock. Crop the cattail using a Big Shot, Catch of the Day Die and Soft Suede Cardstock. 
  8. Snip piece of Linen and Old Olive Linen Thread with a Paper Snips.  Adhere all elements as shown with Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots. and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The images that are a part of the Best Catch Bundle are perfect for coloring with Watercolor Pencils and blending with Blender Pens. I may have overdid it on the card stock crinkle but I couldn’t help myself. The 2nd layer of Soft Suede Cardstock, the Crackle Paint Frame, and the Vellum Cardstock all received a crush in my hand to create a distressed look to match the distress of the crackle paint.

Amazing Life with the Stamp Review Crew

Amazing Life Bundle by Stampin' Up! Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Up!

Whoops, I did it again!  This past weekend, and the 4 prior, I have been indulged in hockey mom activities…lots of fun, but no time to check off my papercraft obligations.  I had to pull out of the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop, but neglected to delete my scheduled post….so, it published and pushed with no content…sorry peeps. So I took a few minutes today, to get something up…something quick.

If you want to see what the Stamp Review Crew created, you can do so by clicking the button below and following the links in the post.

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, part of the Amazing Life Bundle, are such a treasure to have in your craft supplies.  They are so versatile and work with so many different sized images and sentiments.  Snag them while you can, you won’t be disappointed. 

I chose to go with a Spring color theme for my card.  Shimmery White Cardstock, Pool Party, and Petal Pink. So soft and perfect for this time of year. The sun was at peak level when I took my photo, so you can really see the shine and shimmer of my favorite card stock.

Butterfly Beauty Thinlits and a Punch Tip from Me!

From #ArtisanDesignTeam member Stesha Bloodhart (@stampinhoot): “Utilize various Stampin’ Up! Punches to create artistic notches to hold Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread, and thin ribbon securely in place. The Daisy and Classic Label Punch are just two of the many options available. Think outside the box and the possibilities are endless.” Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle…LOVE!

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. Use an Aqua Painter to create an ombre background with Mint Macaron (top and bottom) and Soft Sea Foam Ink (middle).

  4. Use the Daisy or Classic Label Punch to create an artistic notch (right side) to hold two loops of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.  Secure the twine with a bow (left side).  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Stamp the sentiments in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black 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 to size with a Paper Snips. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you ever struggle to keep your Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread neatly in place, grab a punch and get creative.  Adding a little notch to your cardstock makes tying and positioning so much easier…and it adds a nice artistic flair…BONUS!

Vellum Cardstock is one of my go-to products, it adds a softness that speaks Spring, which after these last few weeks of Wisconsin getting pummeled with snow and cold, I am welcoming with open arms.
