Best Dressed Suite Bundle (English)

Be as bold as your lipstick with the Best Dressed Suite Bundle! Someone once said, “Life is too short to wear boring clothes.” It’s also too short for boring cards.

Cup of Cheer Dies

The Cup of Cheer Dies were first introduced in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  The dies carried over, but the coordinating Cup of Christmas Stamp Set retired.  I LOVE that there is yet another REVERSIBLES stamp set (Rise & Shine) that has been made avaialble to coordinate with these dies.

I wanted to create a tad outside the box when using the All Dressed Up Dies.  Instead of creating a purse/tote, I decided to go with a cute backpack!  I know, I barely stepped outside the box, certainly didn’t jump :).

I kept it clean and simple, just added a few elements to make it resemble a backpack.

 

  1. Use the All Dressed Up dies & a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop the following pieces of Basic Gray Cardstock: purse body x 2, long strap x 3, pocket x 1, buckle strap x 1.  
  2. Use the 2 3/8″ Circle Stitched Shapes Die to crop a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock. 
  3. Zip two pieces of Smoky Slate Cardstock through a die-cutting and embossing machine, tucked inside the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  TIP: Take advantage of the 3D Embossing Plate to make it easy creating your sandwich.  Crop the two pieces with the purse die, making sure to line the largest opening properly over the embossed lines. Snip out so just the large piece remains. 
  4. Crop a button and two buckles (All Dressed Up Dies) of Smoky Slate Cardstock. Thread Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine through the button holes and adhere a Whisper White Best Dressed Tassel to the backside of the button. 
  5. Assemble the backpack as shown in the pictures, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and/or a strong glue of choice to adhere the pieces in place. 
  6. Snip out the two perfume bottles from the Best Dressed 6×6 Designer Series Paper and tuck them inside the front pocket of the backpack. 

Rise and shine and start stamping! Use the Rise & Shine Stamp Set to create cards and other projects with hot morning beverages and greetings that are sure to warm anyone’s heart. This stamp set is a Reversibles** set, so some of the stamps are two sided with an image on each side of the stamp for more creative options.

Earn this stamp set FREE March 3–March 31, 2020, during part two of our Sale-A-Bration promotion! Ask your demonstrator about the coordinating dies. This stamp set is also available in French. **Patent Pending.

I love how the Best Dressed 6×6 Designer Series Paper set the color combination for this card.  Petal Pink is one of my FAVORITE colors of all time.  It is so gorgeous and coordinates with so many different colors!

The Rise & Shine Stamp Set is perfect for the casual to avid crafter.  The reversibles stamps are user friendly and allow you to create mugs of many directions.  I recommend pairing the set with a Stamparatus.  The solid stamps get the best stamp image when even pressure is applied. 

 

  1. With a Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  (this is your card base).
  2. Layer and adhere a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock as shown. Triple wrap with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Tie a double bow of baker’s twine and adhere it with a Mini Glue Dot. 
  3. Crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Stamp the mug in Smoky Slate Classic Ink, first onto scratch paper and then onto Whisper White Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Color Vellum Cardstock with a Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  Crop with the filigree die from the Cup of Cheer Dies.  Adhere as shown with Mini Glue Dots. 
  6. Stamp the heart tag from the Rise & Shine Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink, first onto scratch paper and then onto Whisper White Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies. Thread a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine that has been separate to two threads.  Tuck the ends inside the mug,  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate Ink onto a 3 1/2 x 3/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  8. Add Silver Metallic Pearls for a fun, yet soft, touch of bling.

Stamp Review Crew - Inspiring You One Stamp at a Time

When I saw the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Bundle in the 2020 Mini Catalog, I immediately thought of a shaker card.  So, when the first challenge announced for the Stampin’ Fancy Friday was Shake It, I knew exactly what set I was going to use. 

Don’t you think it is a fabulous option for a shaker card?  The shakers represent the honey and do so perfectly!

 

Fancy Friday Shake It February Challenge _ Stesha Bloodhart_Stampin' Hoot! Stampin' Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team_Honey Bee Bundle

If you follow me, you know that I love to use an Aqua Painter on 90% of my creations.  This Honey Bee shaker card is no exception.  

Step by Step Tutorial Button

 

  1. With a Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  (this is your card base).
  2. Cut a piece of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere to the card base with Snail Adhesive. 
  3. Cut two pieces of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. Zip one through a die-cutting and embossing machine, two times, cropping out the honeycombs.
  4. Place the honeycomb die-cuts back in place (as shown) and add the watercolor wash with an Aqua Painter and Crushed Curry Classic Ink.  Allow to dry completely.
  5. Flick ink from a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker onto the card. 
  6. Use a Stamping Sponge wedge to lightly add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the honeycomb die-cuts and the rest of the Shimmery White Cardstock. Adhere to a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Window Sheet. 
  7. Adhere Foam Adhesive Strips around the backside of each honeycomb die-cut. Note: You can easily curve the strips to neatly adhere around the honeycombs.  Add Iridescent Sequins.  Adhere the 2nd piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to the Foam Adhesive Strips and then to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  8. Stamp the hive in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to add depth by adding Crushed Curry around the edges and towards the middle.  Crop with the coordinating die-cut.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  9. Stamp the three bees in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Add Crushed Curry with an Aqua Painter. Crop with the coordinating die-cuts.  Adhere with Mini Glue Dots. 
  10. Stamp the sentiment 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. Trim to size and adhere with Snail Adhesive. 
  11. Adhere black and gold sequins (Peaceful Poppies Sequins) with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen. .

January 2020 Artisan Blog Hop – From My Heart Suite

From My Heart Suite Bundle from Stampin' Up! Creations by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!
Today the Artisan’s are featuring projects made from products of the From My Heart Suite on pages 8-10 of the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog!

Stamp Review Crew - Inspiring You One Stamp at a Time
From My Heart Suite Bundle from Stampin' Up! Creations by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop Card

My creations consist of three parts:  The Shadow Box, the Valentine’s Cards and the Heart Foil Tin.

The Heart Foil Tin is filled with Legos and a note asking my boys to create something for me that can adorn my desk during the day!  I can’t wait to see what they come up with.  

The cover is wrapped in Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon and secured with Mini Glue Dots and a bow.  

I adhered a full Heart Doily, white side up, to the top of the cover with Mini Glue Dots.  I then took a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily and used a Paper Snips to remove the scallops around the edge so that I could layer it on top of the white.  The straight-edge Heart Punch was used to quickly crop the heart from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered it to the center of the doilies with Snail Adhesive. 

The final touch was to glue several From My Heart Faceted Gems with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen. 

 

The shadow box frame I have had in my stash to use when it worked.  It just happened to work perfectly some floating hearts!  

I took 4 Flirty Flamingo Heart Doilies and 8 Real Red Heart Doilies and scored them through the middle.  I cut three pieces of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine to the needed length and adhered them to the center of 4 Heart Doilies that I glued together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

I positioned the the red doilies within the frame and secured them with a small dot from a hot glue gun.  I created three pom poms from baker’s twine to pretty up the bottom and hide the glue.  You could make them for the top too, I just didn’t feel it necessary. 

I found photos of my boys that I liked and cropped them with the straight-edge Heart Punch.  I adhered them with Mini Glue Dots. 

For the Flirty Flamingo Heart Doilies, I adhered them together, but wanted to add the arrow image from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.  I stamped the arrow twice in Smoky Slate Ink, cut them out with Paper Snips, then glued them together.  I created a small slit through the center of the doilies so that I could slide my arrow through.  I secured it in place with a Mini Glue Dot. 

I finished with stamping the “Happy Valentine’s Day” heart in Real Red Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I cropped them out with the coordinating Heart Punch and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots.

The cards I created were quick and simple.

Here are the Step-by-Step Instructions on how I created cards:

  1. With a Paper Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  (this is your card base).
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Cut a piece of From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere to the card with Snail Adhesive. 
  4.  Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 2 3/4 x 4″. Stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the lower right corner. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  5. Crop two scalloped and two straight edge hearts of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Add a watercolor wash of Melon Mambo Classic Ink to the scalloped hearts and Real Read Classic Ink to the straight-edge hearts.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp two arrows in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Mini Dimensionals. 
  7. Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add From My Heart Faceted Gems to the card and arrow. 

The From My Heart Suite is just $88.25 and can be added to an order with one easy item code, item 153931.  If you love to create Valentine-themed projects, then this suite if perfect for you!

Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

It’s a Beautiful Day for a Beautiful Day Stamp Set!

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop!  Today we bring you a stamp set that has been around for a bit, but it is ‘beautiful’ and so great to create with.  My post will be short and sweet (it is my oldest’s birthday today and we are heading to the Wild Hockey Game as I type this).

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the butterfly in Stazon Ink onto Vellum Cardstock.  I had to stamp it twice for complete coverage and the Stamparatus allowed me to easily do that! 

I snipped it out with Paper Snips, then flipped it over and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sea Foam, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, and Night of Navy…All Dark as Vellum Cardstock mutes the colors. 

I adhered it to the card with a single Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My card also uses a brand new 3D Embossing Folder from the 2020 Jan-June Mini Catalog called Parisian Flourish, which is part of the Parisian Blossom Suite of products.  

When using 3D Embossing folders, it always gives a better embossed image if you spritz the cardstock with a bit of water using a Stampin’ Spritzer prior to zipping it through the die-cutting and embossing machine.  Use the 3D Embossing Plate for ease of creating your sandwhich.

I love how the sentiments pop when you heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock. Snipping the sentiment with Paper Snips is my favorite way to display it!
