At Home With You Bundle : Christmas

At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Creates a Cute Christmas Card and Gift Bag by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #athomewithyou #christmascard

Today did not go as planned but I am happy that I still have something to share with you.  The At Home With You Bundle is one of my favorites from the 2017-2018 Holiday Catalog. I have created several projects for the InkBig Academy Design Team that I am going to share with you. Since everything is starting to navigate towards the upcoming Christmas Holiday, I thought I would start out with my Christmas Creations.

A square card (5.5 in. x 5.5 in.) was the perfect canvas to create this front door scene.  The door was stamped in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  An easy way to create a realistic looking door!  It was then cropped out with the Big Shot coordinating framelits dies, included in the bundle.  All other images were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock and then colored with an Aqua Painter and Classic Inks.

Tip:  Crop out the images with the Big Shot, Coordinating Framelits and Magnetic Platform prior to coloring them.  Nothing more frustrating than coloring a perfect image only to get an imperfect crop cut.

I just love this feature of the At Home With You Bundle!  You can hide the sentiment behind the door that actually opens!  How fun is that?

The “house siding” was created by adding ink to the inside of the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder prior to sending it through the Big Shot and Whisper White Cardstock.

I just love the Striped Treat Bags.  The Gold Foil Stripes are gorgeous and it is so easy to dress up a quick gift bag or last-minute gift giving.  The all the Gold Embellishments and Ribbon that Stampin’ Up! offers, it is easy to coordinate with the treat bag.

The Merry Christmas Sentiment, along with several others included in the At Home With You Bundle, can quickly be cropped out with the Classic Label Punch.  Just enough room remained for me to add a couple Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles.

I love the Gold Metallic Thread to add behind your images.  It just adds so much to a creation with very little effort or $ moola! I thought to add more Metallic Enamel Shaped Circles as the decorations on the tree made it feel more like Christmas!

I love how the photo above shows all the true beauty of the Striped Treat Bags!  They are just perfect for Christmas Gift Bags!

Oh So Eclectic Bundle – Missing You Friend

Oh So Eclectic Bundle by Stampin' Up! for Missing You Friend Card by Stesha Bloodhart with Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Oh So Eclectic Bundle: Missing You Friend Card!

As I am preparing for my journey to Salt Lake City next week for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage, I will be sharing a few projects from the archives since time is of the essence. My share for today is one that I created for the InkBig Academy Design Team using the Oh So Eclectic Bundle from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Don’t forget to check out the stunning Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper to pair with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle!

The bright In-Colors of Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst give good contrast against the Basic Black Card Base.  The pieces of Lemon-Lime Twist Cardstock behind the flowers were all zipped through the Big Shot with the dies from the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.  The dies that I used are not made to cut through the cardstock.  One embossed the cardstock and the other just cuts the slots.  So I grabbed my Paper Snips and snipped around the edges so that I could place the pieces on my Basic Black background.

The flowers were easily cropped out with the Big Shot and coordinating dies.  I recommend using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets along with the Black Cardstock to easily adhere them to the colored flower bases and leave minimal to no adhesive residue.  I used the Glitter Enamel Dots in various colors in sizes to “frame” the fussy cut sentiment of “Missing You Friend”.

Welcome to the September 2017 Pals Blog Hop

Pal Blog Hop 2014 Badge Fresh Fig

Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Merry Patterns Hostess Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the Pals 2017 September Blog Hop! #merrypatterns #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafts #christmascards #christmas #stampinup

As you can see by my card creation, ‘My Favorite Holiday’ is Christmas!  I was so excited when Stampin’ Up! announced the release of the Hostess Only Set “Merry Patterns”!  I instantly fell in love with the images and had to have it!  I just got my order on Monday and couldn’t wait to start creating with it!

Merry Patterns Hostess Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the Pals 2017 September Blog Hop! #merrypatterns #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafts #christmascards #christmas #stampinup

I stuck with my go-to watercolor wash background which was created with Shimmery White Cardstock, an Aqua Painter, and Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. I spray the Shimmery White Cardstock with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer first so that the ink spreads evenly and doesn’t soak in immediately. After I let the first application of water and color dry, I add another in just a few areas.  Then I grab a lot of color with the Aqua Painter and gently tap it while holding it over the cardstock to get the dark splatters.  This time I also grabbed my Whisper White Craft Reinker and added splatters of white on top of the Cherry Cobbler.

A Foil Snowflake (one of my favorite items in the 2017 Holiday Catalog) was flipped on its backside and colored with a Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Marker.  I love that you can make a snowflake of any color to coordinate with the project of your choice.  All images and sentiments I used on this card are from the Merry Patterns Stamp Set.  I stamped them on Whisper White Cardstock using Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry and Basic Black Archival Ink.  Stampin’ Up! has done a wonderful job making it easy to add color in this 2-step stamp set!

Here is a clear look at everything that is included in the Merry Patterns Stamp Set. My first intention was to use the deer as I am smitten over it, but in the end, my card was better without it…so he will just present himself on a later creation!

Scrapbook Sunday : Painted Autumn DSP Sneak Peek

Scrapbook Sunday : Painted Autumn DSP Sneak Peek

Welcome to Scrapbook Sunday!  Today is the last day of my paper craft retreat and I am sharing with you a page that I created while here. It is made with the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog set to release on September 1st.  The pumpkins are all fussy cut (gasp)…but it was relaxing and so worth it!

The base is a piece of Early Espresso 12×12 Cardstock from the Best of Neutrals Cardstock Pack.  I then took a full sheet of Shimmery White Cardstock and added Early Espresso and Soft Sky Classic Ink with an Aqua Painter to create a soft background. I used my go-to Letters for You Stamp Set and coordinating Large Letters Framelits Dies to create the PUMPKIN heading. The ‘patch pick’ was stamped with the Brushwork Alphabet Stamp Set and fussy cut with the Paper Snips. Both headings were stamped with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals (regular and mini).

The pumpkins came from the Painted Autumn DSP and were fussy cut with Paper Snips, grouped together to form a patch and adhered with Fast Fuse and Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves in this section were stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock with Garden Green Classic Ink and then quickly cropped out with the coordinating Leaf Punch. (Painted Autumn DSP and the Painted Harvest Bundle will be available to order on September 1st, 2017).

The side border is made up of a 2 inch strip of Painted Autumn DSP, a stretched piece of 1/4″ Copper Trim glued down with Fast Fuse Adhesive. I then took a 1.5 inch strip of Early Espresso Cardstock and ran it through the Ticket Tear Border Punch.  I adhered it to the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added fussy cut pumpkins and and Soft Sky Stamped Leaves.

I added flagged pieces of Very Vanilla Cardstock to share details of the photo.  I hand lettered the information with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  This was a Kindergarten Field Trip that I chaperoned with my oldest son Preston.  It was a lot of fun and I have more photos to put on pages and share.

Although cutting out all the pumpkins did take some time, I am loving the end result!

Painted Harvest Bundle Sneak Peek: Day 3

Well, here we are with Day 3 of the Painted Harvest Bundle Sneak Peek and the excitement is still building!  I LOVE the non-traditional colors used on these sunflowers!  Melon Mambo on the left and Soft Sky on the right, both with Early Espresso accents.  I think the Soft Sky is my ultimate favorite so far; I have always been a huge fan of a blue and brown color combination.

The card base is made with the new Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock and the second layer is Very Vanilla Cardstock cut a 1/4 in smaller.  All images outside of the leaves that go with the Leaf Punch are fussy cut with a Paper Snips.
