Crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock using a die-cutting and embossing machine and the 4 x 2 5/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die.  Use a Paper Trimmer to cut 1/2″ from the bottom.  Adhere the two pieces of Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Edge Ribbon to the seam you just cut.  Adhere to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock with Snail Adhesive, ensuring it is even on all sides.

Birch Background and Nature's Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I am continuing with my #madforplaid obsession!  If you joined us for the last hop showcasing Winter Woods, you would have seen more creations using the Buffalo Check Background stamp that I have incorporated into this Still Scenes snow globe featuring a northwoods feel.

Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Real Red Cardstock. Note: It may take a few applications to get good coverage on the black ink.

Cut down to 4 x 5 1/8, following the edges of the check pattern.

Use a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop the following pieces using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies::

  • Crop the Buffalo Check piece for the Snow Globe Shaker Dome using the coordinating die, saving the cropped die-cut.  Adhere the Snow Globe Shaker Dome to the backside. Add Snowflake Sequins, set aside. 
  • Crop the tree scene in Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and Garden Green Classic Ink.  Add Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and activate with a Heat Tool.
  • Crop the bears in Basic Black Cardstock. Adhere to the trees with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere to the cropped die-cut from above (Buffalo Check).  Position and tape in place behind the Snow Globe Shaker Dome. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  • Zip through a piece of Basic Black Cardstock tucked inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Crop three pieces with the die for the snow globe base.  Adhere them together with Snail Adhesive. Wrap with Linen Thread. Tie a bow of Linen Thread and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere below the Snow Globe Shaker Dome with Mini Glue Dots. 

Stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Christmas) 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. Crop with the Classic Label Punch, snip the ends to obtain a straight edge. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

So, who else loves Buffalo Check as much as I do?  and I love it as a Snow Globe with a mom and baby black bear.

Do you struggle with masculine cards?  I hear that a lot, but masculine cards are some of my favorite to create…it may be because of the way I was brought up (horses, hunting, and more) so they come easier to me, not sure, but I truly hope I am inspiring others to help create more masculine creations.

Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Good News!  The True Gentleman Buttons are back in the CLEARANCE RACK and marked down to $2.80!  What a steal!  I used them on both of my card creations as they pair so well with the Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets.

Wrap 4 loops of Linen Thread around one of the pieces.  Adhere a True Gentleman Button (with Linen Thread) with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Crop the Merry with a Big Shot and Basic Black Cardstock.  Snip Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to size and adhere to the card.

Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Sailing Home

Sailing Home Bundle from Stampin' Up! Graduation card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot for Stamp Review Crew #stampinup

Set Sail Graduation Card!

I was in need of a graduation card and as I skimmed the New Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog for a stamp set or bundle that fit the bill, I realized the sentiments from the Sailing Home Bundle would work perfectly!  I had created the 6×6 card base a few weeks back and just never finished it. 

So, when I sat down to create for the Stamp Review Crew hop, I started with a 6 x 6 canvas and graduation card in my mind.

 

Sailing Home Bundle from Stampin' Up! Graduation card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot for Stamp Review Crew #stampinup

Cut a piece of Night of Navy 12 x 12 Cardstock to 6 x 12.  Score and fold at 6″.

Cut a piece of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 4.  Use a Stamping Sponge to apply Seaside Spray Classic Ink.

Temporarily adhere both pieces together with a small piece of washi tape and zip through a die-cutting machine tucked inside the High Sea 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere  together and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the lighthouse, 1 large, and 2 small sailboats in Night of Navy Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Stamp the sentiments in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Night of Navy 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.

Crop all images, sentiments, and die-cuts with a die-cutting machine and the coordinating dies from Smooth Sailing Dies.

Adhere all as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut a 3 inch piece of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.  Fold in half and adhere together and between the Night of Navy and Shimmery White Cardstock with Mini Glue Dots.

 

Sailing Home Bundle from Stampin' Up! Graduation card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot for Stamp Review Crew #stampinup

What do you think?  Does this work as a graduation card?  Do you like blue tones?  My favorite colors are Teal (Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay) and Blues (Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel).  What are your favorite colors?

Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Good Morning Magnolia!

Perfect Parcel Die & Magnolia Lane Suite From Stampin' Up! Gift box from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Good Morning Magnolia – Perfect Parcel Gift Box

Ok, so I know I said it was coming soon, but it didn’t happen as soon as I thought.  FINALLY, I have made a creation using the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle, Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack,  Perfect Parcel Die, and the Story Label Punch. 

Don’t they make an amazing team?  I love the colors of the Magnolia Lane Suite and I am so happy that they have Stampin’ Blends to match.  NOTE: Petal Pink Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends are currently on back order with an estimated stock date of August 19th!

Perfect Parcel Die & Magnolia Lane Suite From Stampin' Up! Gift box from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Crop two pieces of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, a die-cutting machine, and the die from the Perfect Parcel Dies.  NOTE:  Since the Designer Series Paper I used had hard lines, I made sure to crop the two pieces side-by-side to ensure they lined up properly when the box was assembled.

Fold each scoreline and set the fold (burnish) with a Bone Folder.

Add adhesive (I prefer Tear & Tape, but Multipurpose Liquid Glue works well too) to the tabs and the backside of the flap, as shown:

 Adhere the center tabs together, making sure to line up the score lines on each piece.

Fold the box as shown below, line-up the score lines, and adhere.

Adhere the flaps (adhesive added in Step 3) to the adjacent piece as shown.  Once adhered, gently push in on the center of the box until it “snaps” and the box shape forms. You may have to do a little adjusting. 

Flip the box over to the top side and fold in the flaps and top pieces as shown in the photo.  

Tuck the flaps into the tabs on each side

Now that your box is fully assembled, it should look like this:

Now it’s time to decorate:

Wrap the center of the box with both the 3/8″ Linen Ribbon and Mossy Meadow Linen Thread. I put a simple knot in the Linen Ribbon and did a double bow of Linen Thread that I adhered with a Mini Glue Dot. 

Stamp the small magnolia flower (Good Morning Magnolia) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Color with Light & Dark Petal Pink and Light & Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.  Crop with a die-cutting machine and the coordinating die from Magnolia Memory Dies. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment (Good Morning Magnolia) in Jet Black Stazōn Ink onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock.  Allow to dry, then crop with the Story Label Punch.  Use the Story Label Punch to crop one more piece of Vellum Cardstock and a piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  Use two Silver Metallic Basic Brads to hold the three pieces together.  (I doubled up on the vellum so that the sentiment was easier to read).  Adhere to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Perfect Parcel Die & Magnolia Lane Suite From Stampin' Up! Gift box from Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The photo below gives you a good view of how tall the box is.  The finished box size is 3 1/2″ x 2 1/8″ x 1 3/8″, which just so happens to fit a gift card perfectly tucked inside along with something small. 

Be sure to hop along (back or foward) to see all the amazing creations that the Stamp Review Crew has created using the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle!

Free As A Bird Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Gold Metallic Pearls add such a pop to the flower centers, don’t you think?  How can such a little thing present such an added touch?  Do you have the Metallic Pearls in your embellishment stash?  Mine have been getting quite the workout.  I will need to replenish them soon!

Use a paper trimmer to cut piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Adhere a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5.  Apply a watercolor wash with an Aqua Painter and Calypso Coral Ink.  Use the Aqua Painter to apply water splatter to the dried watercolor wash, soaking it up with a Paper Towel after 30 seconds.

Zip a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock through a die-cutting machine, tucked inside the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  Crop with the largest Stitched Nested Label Die. Score the top portion right at the edges where the point meets.  Adhere the flap to the backside of the watercolor wash piece with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the front side with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the following images in Jet Black Stazōn Ink onto the new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper:

    • Large Bird
    • Birds On Branch
    • Two Larger Flowers
    • Two Small Flowers
    • Two Flower Buds
    • Three Leaf Stems

Color the images with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Ink Colors:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, and Calypso Coral. Snip all images with a Paper Snips. Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive, Mini and Regular Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add Gold Metallic Pearls to flower centers and the Nested Label as shown. 

Rub a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the two sentiments (Genuine Gems & Itty Bitty Greetings; Note, I masked the “sent” on the sent with love stamp so that only “with love” stamped.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip the “so sorry” to size with Paper Snips. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Cut the “with love” to 3/4 x 2 (leaving the sentiment near the top).  Flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Free As A Bird Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by 2019 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I previously created a journal and pillow box gift using the Free As A Bird Suite as part of my 2019 Artisan Design Team Corporate Blog Post.  I shared these creations (below) on a blog post here.  When I created those, I colored several of the images from the Free As A Bird set.  I used those to quickly create the card I am sharing with you today.  I decided to use white as my canvas instead of the crumb cake I used previously.  

When I created the flagged sentiment for the top of the card (with love), I masked the “sent” using washi tape, so that when I stamped the sentiment it only displayed “with love”.  You have so many more sentiment options when you are able to mask a part of the stamp.

The new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper is a dream to work with.  It colors nicely and cuts like butter, which makes it easy on the hands.  Have you tried the new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper yet?
