A Sympathy Card & a Sneak Peek at the Petal Palette Bundle.

I was in need of a sympathy card and although I was not excited about what I was creating it for, I was excited that I could play more with the Petal Pallete Bundle from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog set to launch on January 2, 2018.  This set makes my heart go pitter-patter and I sure hope that it does the same for you!

  • Card Details:
  • I went with my favorite Crumb Cake Cardstock as my card base.  I cut it to 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.
  • I cut the 2nd layer to 4 in x 5.5 in.  I added two strips of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim to the vertical edges (with Snail Adhesive) and then wrapped two strips of the Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon horizontally (also with Snail Adhesive).  I adhered it to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I ran a strip of Old Olive Cardstock through the Big Shot with a die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies, part of the Petal Palette Bundle. I adhered the center to the top of the Ombre Ribbon.
  • I stamped the Bird and Rose images in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink then cropped them with the coordinating dies and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. I gave them a little pop off the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals as the adhesive.
  • I added the sentiment and a few Pearl Basic Jewels as a final touch.

Petal Palette Stamp Set and Suite of Product by Stampin' Up! from 2018 Occasions Catalog Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #petalpalette

I have had so much going on this week!  My boys, ages 8 and 5, are Mites in Hockey.  We have 104 Mites and I am the Team Manager…this takes up several hours of my day 🙂 I love doing both paper crafting and working with the Mite Families.  I have had my Product Purchase Premier (pre-order from my OnStage adventure) sitting here for a week and I haven’t been able to even sort through it.

I saw a card created by my friend, Charlet Mallett, and just had to get this stamp set out and start creating projects with it!  I have to say, it is going to be on my all-time favorites list of products.  Stampin’ Up! knocked it out of the park with this one!

The stamped images portray a soft watercolor feel and they are so fun to color in with my new Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers.  Those markers have gotten quite the workout in my craft room since they arrived! If you haven’t added them to your collection yet, ORDER THEM ALREADY! 🙂

Aren’t the images and font just drop-dead gorgeous?  I MUST KEEP CREATING  projects with this Suite.   You will see a lot of it in the upcoming days, weeks and months!

The Petal Passion Embellishments are BEAUTIFUL!  I used the leaves on this card, but there is a cute flower with a pearl in the middle that is going on something soon!  Great job SU!

Petal Palette Stamp Set and Suite of Product by Stampin' Up! from 2018 Occasions Catalog Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #petalpalette

I started my card by stamping the floral image directly on the card base…and my obsession with fussy cutting took over and I just had to snip it out and adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I just couldn’t help myself.  It looked gorgeous on the card base, but I crave that dimension.

Good things to come tomorrow!  Make sure to stop back to read about the Year-End Promotions, Demonstrator Pre-Order and so much more!  Stay Tuned!

Today is the FINAL DAY to earn the Free Wink of Stella Glitter Brush!  See my HOOT LOOT page for details!

You’ve Got This – Fortieth Birthday and Stampin’ Blends

You've Got This Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for a Fortieth Birthday Card using Stampin' Blend on Crumb Cake see details at Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #40thbirthdaycard #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

You’ve Got This – Fortieth Birthday and Stampin’ Blends

The time has come to start creating birthday cards that will be in abundance soon, as my High School friends/classmates (and myself) close in on the age of 40!  My cousin and one of my closest friends turned 40 years old yesterday! Her husband threw her a surprise birthday party this past Saturday, which we were more than happy to attend.  It was a successful surprise and I was able to catch up with family I hadn’t seen in awhile.

You've Got This Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for a Fortieth Birthday Card using Stampin' Blend on Crumb Cake see details at Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #40thbirthdaycard #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

I needed to make a card, but I didn’t want to do the traditional 40th Birthday in black.  I wanted to have black incorporated into the card, so I found the perfect piece of paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper Pack.  I decided to mute it by placing a piece of Vellum over the top of it but letting it peak out the edges.  I also decided to soften it by using Crumb Cake as the Card Base and accent piece.

The flower from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set was also stamped on Crumb Cake using the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then colored with the Fabulous New Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I highly recommend using Crumb Cake with the Stampin’ Blends. It softens the colors and blends so very nicely. I used Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie.  After coloring, I snipped the edges with my Paper Snips.

The Stitched Square was quickly cropped with the Big Shot and die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, one of my very favorite in my collection :).  After cropping it out, I then added Cherry Cobbler Ink using the Color Smooching Technique.  I adhered it to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals, over the top of the Linen Thread I had wrapped around the layers adhered to the Card Base.

After adhering the You’ve Got This Flower to the Crumb Cake Square (also with Stampin’ Dimensionals) I stamped the Happy Birthday, from the Milestone Moments Stamp Set, with Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then stamped the Fortieth in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock and Heat Embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I trimmed it down and flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.

I added a few Black Rhinestone Jewels, my favorite accessory, to the card to finish it off.

Cheery Chirps for Global Design Project 110 Sketch

Cheery Chirps Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! in the 2017 Holiday Catalog used for Global Design Project 110 Sketch Challenge #GDP110 #steshabloodhart #stampinhootGlobal Design Project 110 Sketch Challenge

Welcome to my very first post as part of the Design Team for the Global Design Project Challenge Blog! I was so excited (and honored) when I received a phone call asking me if I would like to become part of the Team!  The Design Team is second to none and I can’t believe I am now a part of it!  YAY! Happy Dance 🙂

This week the challenge is a sketch.  I love sketches as they make it so much easier to design a card when you have something to create from, a starting point.

The Cheery Chirps Stamp Set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog was on my wish list from day one.  Thanks to a friend and fellow demonstrator, I now have some images to work with and create beautiful images.

I have been practicing with my New Stampin’ Blends (available to customers on November 1st) and thought they would be great to use on the Cheery Chirps Images. They did not disappoint and I am starting to get the hang of them.  I still have a lot of playing and learning to do, but I am loving them so far.

If you follow my blog, you know that I am a sucker for Whisper White Card Bases with a 2nd Layer of Whisper White adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This card follows suit and uses my go-to start. Here are the rest of the details of this card:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
  • 2nd Layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4 1/8 in x 5 3/8 in, stuck a piece of Linen Thread behind it. then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Note: I would recommend tying the Linen Thread around the DSP instead of the 2nd Layer.
  • I took a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP and cut 2 Strips to 1 1/2 in x 4 1/4 in and adhered them to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I used the “Watercolor Splash Technique” (also known as Ink Smooshing) on Shimmery White Cardstock with Old Olive Ink, then cropped it out with my Big Shot and Stitched Framelits Circle Die. BONUS: Download a Step-by-Step Technique Guide on Watercolor Backgrounds here:  Watercolor Background Technique Guide
  • The Cheery Chirps were stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink on Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  The were colored with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Light and Dark Calypso Coral, Light Cherry Cobbler, Ivory, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake. The were fussy cut with my Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the card for the ‘final touch’. I opted to leave the sentiment for the inside of the card.

My next attempt with Stampin’ Blends will contain more shading and dimension within the colors. I have some practice and reading to do before then but keep coming back to see more inspiration using the Stampin’ Blends!  Want more details on the Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers Available November 1st?  Click Here for Details

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, my Big Shot and a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP to create the bag.  I then cut a strip of the same DSP to 1 1/2 inch Wide x 4 Inches Long.  Then I punched a circle with my 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, scored a fold line at 3 inches and then glued the bottom inch to the inside of the Mini Treat Bag. There are so many cute thinlits that come with the Mini Treat Bags, you can see them all in the photo below.

I used the Largest Stitched Circle Framelit to crop out the Circle to use as a template to build me tag scene.  All Images are from the Half Full Stamp Set.  The Wine Glasses and Holly are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock and colored with the all New Stampin’ Blends (available to order November 1st).  I used the Dark Cherry Cobbler for the Wine and Berries and Light and Dark Old Olive for the Holly Leaves.  I fussy cut all images with my Paper Snips and adhered them with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here is a closer look to all the wonderful images and beautiful font sentiments that come in the Half Full Stamp Set, available in Clear or Wood-Mount.

I wanted a note for the inside of the Mini Gift Bag so I cut a piece of Cherry Cobber Cardstock to 3 1/2 in x 5 1/4 in. Then I added Whisper White ( 3 1/4 in x 5 in.) and Old Olive (3 in x 4 3/4 in) Cardstock layers.  I stamped the Tag and Wine Bottle with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock, fussy cut the images with my Paper Snips and colored them with my New Stampin’ Blends(available to order November 1st). I used Dark Cherry Cobbler and Light and Dark Old Olive, the same as the outside of the gift bag.

I finished off both the outside of the gift bag and inside card with Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon and Black Rhinestones Jewels.
