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.

Butterfly Gala by Stampin' Up! Handmade creations by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The colors that I used on the butterflies were inspired by ribbon that I had received on a gift from one of my downline. Pacific Point, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist, & Pineapple Punch pair well together for a bright and colorful butterfly.

Heat embossing sentiments has been my go-to technique for so many of my recent creations.  The White Stampin’ Emboss Powder & Basic Black Cardstock against a Whisper White card base really makes it pop. Slant the end for a subtle but completed feel. 

Butterfly Gala by Stampin' Up! Handmade creations by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins paired perfectly with the bold colors used in the butterflies.  With both flat and iridescent options in the package, they can add just the right touch to any creation.

I created a full-sized and 3x3 note card to show how one butterfly can really make a statement. The diagonal striped black and white peeking out from behind the card front is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and can be earned FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31st or While Supplies Last).

3x3 note cards are the perfect size to slip inside a lunch box, bathroom bag, or backpack.  Add a little note to show a loved one you care.

The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are easy to decorate and accommodate so many different gift options, they are ideal for so many occasions. I filled these with my kiddos leftover sour patch kids with matched the colors of the butterflies.

A Little Wild with the Stamp Review Crew

A Little Wild Stamp Set and Little Loves Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Hello There, Honey Bear!

The stamp set, A Little Wild, is the feature of today’s hop with the Stamp Review Crew!  This is one of my FAVORITE sets from Stampin’ Up!  I have made several creations with this set, all which will be listed at the bottom of this post.  

I love to watercolor these images, they have so much open space, you can easily add the color with an Aqua Painter. 

A Little Wild Stamp Set and Little Loves Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Step-by-Step Instructions:

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″.

Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 3/16″ x 5 7/16″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Use an Aqua Painter to watercolor wash a background of Balmy Blue & Mossy Meadow Classic Inks.  Stamp with grass image as shown using Mossy Meadow. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the bear, hive and bees in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Use an Aqua Painter to watercolor with Soft Suede (bear & hive), and Mango Melody (bees). Crop with a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating dies from the Little Loves Framelits. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (snipped to size). 

Stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink onto Soft Suede Cardstock 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 Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

A Little Wild Stamp Set and Little Loves Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

What I love about this set is the front and back images of the animals.  The coordinating die cuts them as a foldable tag to adorn a gift, but I love to use my Paper Snips to separate it into two pieces and use the backside on the inside of the card.  SO STINKIN’ CUTE!

If the A Little Wild Stamp Set and coordinating Little Loves Framelits Dies doesn’t adorn your craft shelves, what are you waiting for!  I think this set may just be one of my most loved and used sets.  I hope it sticks around for a long time!  I haven’t had enough of it yet!

I thought the Heart Epoxy Droplets were the perfect embellishment for this card.  Subtle but meaningful. I love all epoxy and enamel embellishments. They add just the right touch to finish off any card or paper craft creation.

Another sentiment stamped on dark cardstock and heat embossed in white.  Such a great contrast to the white background of the card and draws the eye to the perfectly coordinating words.

Sale-A-Bration! 

Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of year!  Free items with every $50+ purchase, and amazing item at that.  I have definitely gotten the most use out of the Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets, as well as the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I love how light reflects off the foil sheets to make a rainbow of colors that please the eye.

Humming Along Bundle and Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets by Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampreviewcrew #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. Start with a piece of Grapefruit Grove Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.
  2. Cut a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock to 3 5/8 x 5 1/8.  Adhere strips of Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to the edges with Snail Adhesive. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and adhere to a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet.  TIP: Only add Snail Adhesive to the edges of the Laser-Cut Paper.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love that hummingbird from the Humming Along Bundle in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  This one was colored with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and cropped with the Big Shot and coordinating dies.

149712 Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets by Stampin' Up! Free With a $50 Purchase During Sale-A-Bration

I also used the gorgeous Petal Pink Beautifully Detailed Laser-cut, Specialty Paper, also from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  The edge uses the border pieces cut to size and the 3 1/2 x 5 size piece just adds the right contrast to the Foil Sheet. There are so many Laser-cut options available in the pack of paper, definitely worth having in your craft room.

Humming Along Bundle and Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets by Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampreviewcrew #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I cut pieces of Grapefruit Gove cardstock to layer under the focal points and add some depth.  Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove compliment each other well.

Did you know, the Heart Epoxy Droplets are sized to fit perfectly over several of the hearts in the heart image, as well as the hearts that are easily cropped out with the die-cut from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I absolutely love how Stampin’ Up! ensures their products coordinate well and you get the best bang for your buck!

Grouping a mixture of textures and colors together creates a fabulous focal point that wows the recipient.  I love to group in a corner of my card and leave some “white space” in the diagonal corner, it is pleasing to the eye.
