Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  
  2. Cut a piece of Botanical Butterly Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the vases, flowers, shelf (Varied Vases), and sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as the outline and the following for colors:  Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody.  Crop the vases with the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.  Snip the flowers and shelf with Paper Snips. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim the sentiment to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch. 
  5. Add three Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamels Dots for an added touch.

I decided to CASE my card by using the new coordinating Vibrant Vases from the 2019 Occasions Catalog, the same colors for the vases and flowers, and same layout. The 2nd layer is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.  The Designer Series Paper is AMAZING and the black and white designs are the perfect touch to so many creations…I highly recommend this Designer Series Paper.

I I love that the Vibrant Vases Stamp Set is two-step stamping at it’s best.  The background colors have a subtle texture that makes adding color to your creations so easy.  They don’t need to be perfect to make the the vases pop.

Happy Monday Everyone!

I am so excited to be back in the swing of things and joining the Global Design Project Team after what seems to be a very long hiatus.  

I returned just in time!  This week we are CASEing the amazingly talented Shawn De Oliveira!  I had the opportunity to  meet him in Florida at OnStage this past November. It is also so nice to finally meet the virtual friends you make doing this gig we all share and love so much!

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 Grapefruit Grove Foil to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 7/8″ x 5″.  Using 2nd generation stamping (stamp off on scrap paper first), stamp the grass image 3 times in Mossy Meadow Ink and 2 times in Soft Suede Ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to pull some color towards the bottom of the card.  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 
  4. Cut a 4 1/2″ piece of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Pull apart so that the fibers resemble a herringbone.  Adhere to the card with Mini Glue Dots. 
  5. Stamp the rooster in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.

The Paper Snips can be a crafters best friend…at least they are mine!  I love to fussy cut images and make them pop off the page with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Fussy cutting is a therapy to me, I know to some it creates stress, for me, it relieves it.  Stampin’ Up! does a great job with creating dies and punches that coordinate with stamps, making it quick and easy to crop and image.

The Braided Linen Thread carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalog and I am so very happy that it did!  It adds so much to a creation and was the perfect addition to this card.

Simply Thankful for Country Home

Country Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Handmade Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for GDP161 Color Challenge #gdp161 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has a beautiful fall color challenge for you this week!  I jumped on the chance to use my Country Home Stamp Set again…one of my FAVORITES. I went with a non-traditional color for my milk can, but I love the finished product. How about you?

Country Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Handmade Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for GDP161 Color Challenge #gdp161 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Old Olive Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/2″. Using the Smooching Technique (tutorial here), create the background using Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry Classic Inks.
  4. Zip the cardstock through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine tucked inside the Tin Tile Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the milk can and flowers (Country Home Stamp Set) in Jet Black StazOn onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and colors listed above.  Snip out the images with a Paper Snips.
  6. Cut a thin strip of Chicken Wire.  Color the white side with an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  Adhere with a small amount of Snail Adhesive.
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to clear the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Snip with a Paper Snips.
  8. Adhere all images with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Look at those AMAZING fonts in the sentiments of the Country Home Stamp Set!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

The watercolor images can easily be created by using Shimmery White Cardstock, Jet Black StazOn Ink, and an Aqua Painter.  Add color in levels.  Higher levels of water, covering the entire image, let dry completely.  Repeat, decreasing water usage and concentrating on shading areas. This results in a great watercolor effect created with ease.

I just LOVE the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the 2018 Holiday Catalog!  It adds a subtle dimension that makes the handmade card or creation jump up a level.  Pair it with the fun Chicken Wire Element and you have a recipe for fabulousness.

The last few days I have been showing some love to product from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  With new catalogs coming out shortly after the Annual Catalog is launched, I feel like some of the products do not get the love they deserve.  Painted Harvest is one of my favorite stamp sets.  When it debuted in the 2017 Holiday Catalog, I created so many cards that I absolutely loved.  Since fall is now upon us, I figured what better what to bring it back!

The Bright Copper Shimmer Paint is THE BOMB!  It brings a creation to a whole new level…and it is so easy to use.  Just give it a shake, grab a Sponge Dauber, dab it into the cap (adding more paint to the cap if needed) and apply directly to the stamp.  After you are finished stamping, wash the stamp off with a mild detergent and then condition with Stampin’ Mist!

GDP157 Color Challenge – First Frost Congrats

First Frost Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Congratulations Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #gdp157 Color Challenge. #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Monday Everyone! GDP157

The Global Design Project has a gorgeous color challenge for you this week!  Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, and Grapefruit Grove. They are colors that appear in two of my favorite suites of product:  Frosted Floral and Nature’s Poem.  Since Frosted Floral is in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and currently my Suite of the Month Special, I decided to inspire you with another congratulations card using the First Frost Bundle.

First Frost Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Congratulations Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #gdp157 Color Challenge. #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock to a 4″ square.  On a Silicone Mat, mix a dollop of Shimmery White Embossing Paste with a few drops of Mint Macaron Ink Refill.  Cover the cardstock with the Brick Decorative Mask and spread a thin layer of paste with a Palette Knife. Let dry completely then zip through the Big Shot with the large die from the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies.
  3. Create several large loops of the Silver Metallic Thread around your hand, remove and adhere to the back of the embossed piece.  Adhere to the cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Use the greenery dies from the Frosted Boquet Framelits Die Set and crop several pieces using Mint Macaron Cardstock. Set aside.
  5. Color the large rose stamp center with a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker and the outside with the Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker.  Spritz lightly with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer.  Stamp 3 times onto Shimmery White Cardstock (without reinking, spritz if needed).  Crop with the Big Shot and coordinating die.
  6. Stamp the largest stemmed flower in Grapefruit Grove.  Cut apart to only utilize the ends.
  7. Stamp the berry image in Blackberry Bliss onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Crop with the rectangle die.
  8. Stamp the “congratulations” sentiment in Mint Macaron Classic Ink and snip with a Paper Snips.
  9. Piece and adhere (with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Snail Adhesive) all pieces together as shown.
  10. Add Faceted Dots for a final touch.

Adding your color of ink to the Shimmery White Embossing Paste makes it so versatile. I love how well the shimmer stands out even after adding drops of Mint Macaron to it.  It dries quickly and is so easy to use…do you have it in your craft room?

First Frost Bundle by Stampin' Up! Handmade Congratulations Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #gdp157 Color Challenge. #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

All the pieces from the First Frost Bundle pair so well together.  I can easily build a focal point by piecing together the die cuts.  I cut them down as needed since I was placing them behind the larger pieces…fewer runs through the Big Shot really saves time when creating.
