Love the Shimmery Dashing Deer!

Today, the Stamp Review Crew is bringing you inspiration for the FABULOUS Dashing Deer Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog!  I paired it with the beautiful, shimmery, Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and Galvanized Metallic Paper. Combined, these products make one GORGEOUS Christmas Card.

I have seen so many great creations using the Dashing Deer Bundle.  Last week I created my first double gate-fold card using this set (shown below).  I went with a non-traditional colored Christmas card for today’s creation.  Tranquil Tide mixed with Gray Granite, lovely!

The Galvanized Metallic Paper has just the perfect matte finish to match the shimmer from the First Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I used Jet Black StazOn Ink so that I would have to heat set the ink with a Heat Tool (to prevent smearing).  StazOn is fast-drying, but I still recommend setting it aside for a minute to ensure it is fully dry prior to cropping the image.

Mixing and matching the various Stitched Shaped Dies that Stampin’ Up! offers is always my go-to when I want to make a card with many elements and layers.  Sometimes I overdo it and add a few too many…but that is my style and I am sticking to it :).

There are so many different embellishments offered that would work well with this card.  The Metallic Pearls and Share What You Love Artisan Pearls were a perfect match for this card.  I decided to solely use the Silver Metallic Pearls, but I think the Tranquil Tide Artisan Pearls would have been a fabulous choice as well.

Stamp Review Crew Features Buffalo Check

Buffalo Check Stamp Set & Alpine Adventures Bundle by Stampin' Up! Northwoods Christmas Card created by Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Buffalo Check Meets Alpine Adventure!

As promised in my previous post this week, the Buffalo Check Stamp Set is pairing up with the Alpine Adventure Bundle for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! Two of my favorite items from the 2018 Holiday Catalog!

Buffalo Check Stamp Set & Alpine Adventures Bundle by Stampin' Up! Northwoods Christmas Card created by Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black 12x12 Cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 12″.  Score and fold at 6″.
  2. Cut a piece of Wood Textures 6x6 Designer Series Paper to 4 1/2″ x 6″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock to 5″ x 6″.  Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Stamp as many times as needed to get desired coverage.  (3 times works for me).  Trim the cardstock down to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Note:  I followed the outside lines of the dark check rows all the way around and the result is a perfectly sized top-layer for a card base.
  5. Cut a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.  Adhere to the buffalo check cardstock with Snail Adhesive.  Cut an 18″ piece of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon. Wrap around as shown and secure with a bow.
  6. Stamp two feet buckles & snow shoe images in Versamark onto  Wood Texture Designer Series Paper. Cover with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a Heat Tool.  Crop with the coordinating framelits from the Alpine Sports Thinlits Dies.
  7. Crop two runner sleds with a Big Shot and framelit die.  Cut one down so you have the “wood” pieces as shown.
  8. Press the “Merry” element and one of the runner sleds into a Versamark Ink Pad.  Cover with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a Heat Tool.  Repeat until you have the desired coverage.  Adhere all images and elements as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp the “Christmas Greeting” sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a heat tool. Snip apart with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

The Buffalo Check Background Stamp and the Alpine Adventure Bundle are a match made in heaven…throw in the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper and you have 3 Peas in a Pod!  This card makes me want to cozy up to a warm fire wrapped in a fluffy-soft buffalo plaid blanket (which I just ordered about 10 min ago, lol!)Buffalo Check Background Stamp by Stampin' Up!

The Festive Farmhouse Elements look fabulous embossed in Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Just press the element into a Versamark Pad, cover with any color embossing powder and set with a Heat Tool!  Need more coverage?  Repeat the process until the desired thickness is achieved.  Mine has two layers, which covered the element perfectly and gave it a little pop!

Repeat the embossing technique with the runner sled.  After you finish with embossing, crop another runner sled in the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, snip out the “wood” pieces with a Paper Snips and adhere with Fast Fuse.

Did you know that Fast Fuse is back and offered with a deep discount on the clearance rack?  I am stocking up again, are you?

Country Home is such a gorgeous set. I love the fonts they used, it reminds me of one I used on my images last year.  We attended a wedding on Saturday and they used rustic milk cans as the decor, it was amazing and made me think of this stamp set.

Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets are the perfect accent to pair with the Country Home Stamp Set. The Galvanized Metallic Paper has the same matte look as the frosted so I chose to use them on this card.

The Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies, part of the Rooted in Nature Bundle, help to quickly cut almost every image included in the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.  The only image that I had to fussy cut with my Paper Snips is the wood slab, everything else that I stamped was quickly cropped with my trusty Big Shot and the coordinated dies.

Sahara Sand is the perfect color for sand dollars and Old Olive is the perfect color for sea kelp.

You can see everything offered in the Sea of Textures bundle below.  Note: I do have little fish in my scene, they are just pretty small and hard to spot.  I considered them as my shakers in my shaker card frame.

Using a Sponge Dauber to add color to die cuts makes them look just a little more real.  I added color to all of my die cut nets to make them look just a little more worn.

It was easiest to create a canvas to build my scene on.  I didn’t want things moving around much after I sealed it up, so I adhere them in place with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
