Pals Blog Hop : In the Pines Masculine Birthday

Pals-Blog-Hop-275x275-1

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Buffalo Check, In the Pines, Coming Home and More from Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Today just happens to be my hubby’s birthday so the featured card was made especially for him.  We love cabin life, relaxing in the outdoors, fresh air, lake life you name it.  With the weather comes the resurrection of my buffalo plaid collection, as well as my Buffalo Check Background stamp! I paired it with the In the Pines Bundle, the Coming Home Bundle as well as sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays and  Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets.  

Buffalo Check, In the Pines, Coming Home and More from Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  Use a Paper Trimmer to cut down to 4 x 5 1/4.  Distress the edges with a Bone Folder.

Double wrap the bottom with Linen Thread, securing with a bow as shown.

Stamp the trees (In the Pines), Cabin (Coming Home), Happy Birthday (Itty Bitty Birthdays) in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.

Use the 2-Step Stamps to add the Mossy Meadow Ink to the pine trees.

Color the cabin with a Water Brush using Soft Suede and Mango Melody Classic Inks.

Crop the trees and cabins with the coordinating dies (Pines Woods, Home Together) and a Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.

Trim the Happy Birthday sentiment to size (1/2 x 2 1/4) with a Paper Trimmer.

Adhere all pieces as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Seal. 

Stamp the sentiment (Peaceful Moments) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock (twice).  Color with a Mango Melody Dark Stampin’ Blends. Crop one with a 2″ Circle Punch.  Snip the “Joy” out of the 2nd with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Seal.

Only a few days left to purchase the Truly Tailored Bundle!  The stamp set is retiring, but the punch will still be available with all-new coordinating products to go with it!

Unfortunately, the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper has already been sold out and is no longer available! I recommend using the Wood Textures Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack in its place!  Still a great masculine feel with lots of different textures and designs to mix and match.

How about that Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon belly band right below the sentiment?  Such a masculine feel with a soft touch. Love this ribbon and it’s a last-chance item and is available until May 31 or while supplies last.

Adding a touch of ribbon to any project gives it a stepped-up feel!  I used the Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon behind my focal element.  The ribbon is a last-chance item and is available until May 31 or while supplies last.  It is currently discounted to $4.20, a steal!

These masculine cards use a couple colors that are retiring!  Chocolate Chip makes for great masculine color with an outdoor feel.  Scoop the Chocolate Chip products up quickly before they disappear!

Truly Tailored Bundle by Stampin' Up! From the 2018 Occasions Catalog Masculine Card Trio by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The Last Day of April 2018 is Truly Tailored!

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Truly Tailored Bundle!  The Truly Tailored Bundle is part of the True Gentleman Suite of Products from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  Most of the items in the True Gentleman Suite are retiring on May 31st, or While Supplies Last!  It is one of my most favorite Masculine Themed Bundles and outside of the Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Bundle, they are all up for last-call!

Truly Tailored Bundle by Stampin' Up! From the 2018 Occasions Catalog Masculine Card Trio by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Note: These are the instructions for all three cards, change up the Cardstock, Designer Series Paper, and Ink Color as desired.
  2. 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″.
  3. Cut Very Vanilla Cardstock in the following sizes:  5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and 4 3/8″ x 2 5/8″.
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper in the following sizes: 5 1/4″ x 4″ and 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″.
  5. Adhere the large Very Vanilla to the card base with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere the large Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere the smaller piece of Very Vanilla to the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Cut a 9-inch piece of Night of Navy 3/8″ Courdoroy Ribbon.  Wrap around the bottom edge of the card and adhere the ends to the backside with Snail Adhesive.
  8. Cut three 9-inch pieces of Linen Thread. Adhere two over the middle of the Courdoroy Ribbon, adhering to the backside with Snail Adhesive.
  9. Thread the third piece of Linen Thread through a True Gentleman Button and secure with a bow.  Adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot.
  10. Stamp your choice of sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set two times, in your choice of color, onto Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I used Night of Navy, Emerald Envy, and Chocolate Chip.
  11. Punch out one sentiment using the coordinating Tailored Tag Punch, adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Use the 2nd stamped sentiment to crop out the image with a Paper Snips. Adhere as shown with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I am so excited that Stampin’ Up! is introducing new buttons (I missed my buttons) and that the True Gentleman buttons with a rustic feel are carrying over to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Linen Thread is the perfect match for adding the finishing touch to the True Gentleman Buttons. If you order one, be sure to order the other! I promise you will not be disappointed!

The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper has wonderful color combinations to help create a masculine card for that man in your life.  The cards I created show off its versatility and how you can mix and match all designs (front and back) without it looking too busy! I have showcased 6 of the 12 designs available in this Designer Series Paper Pack!

The sentiments in this stamp set are so fun!  To A Classy Kind of Guy, You’re A Fox, and Lookin’ Sharp are just a start.  There are three other sentiments available suited perfectly for the men in your life!   This stamp set is only available through May 31st, 2018, so if it is on your wish list, buy it soon, before it’s gone!

Country Livin’ Adventure for Global Design Project 103 Theme: For Him

Global Design Project 103 Theme: For Him

Today I am fighting mixed emotions…my two boys, Preston (8) and Parker (5) went back to school.  I have excitement from my newly gained freedom to work and craft…then sadness as I realize I lose treasured time with my boys as they start 3rd Grade and Kindergarten!

My excitement continues as I get to start off their school year by playing along with Global Design Project 103 that has the current challenge of one of my favorite THEMES: FOR HIM.  I love masculine creations!  The color tones, content and embellishments are just so fun for me to create with!

Card Details:
  • Card Base is Smoky Slate Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in to make a standard A2 sized card.
  • I put Basic Gray Cardstock inside of the Hexagon’s Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and zipped it through the Big Shot.  I then took a Paper Snips and selectively cut out around the hexagons to piece it the way I wanted for the card.
  • I took the White Wood Textures DSP and applied Smoky Slate Classic Ink to it with a Sponge Brayer and then cropped out the DAD using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I also cut out the DAD again in Basic Gray to make a 3-D or layered look.
  • I took another piece of the Wood Textures DSP and zipped it through the Big Shot inside of the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and then I cropped out an oval with the largest Stitched Oval Shaped Framelits Dies.
  • A mat was created with Smoky Slate Cardstock and the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
