TGIF! It’s Time for a Product Spotlight! 

Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time to spotlight a Stampin’ Up! product!  Mosaic Mood or Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper!  BOTH are part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Sale that runs through September 30, 2019!

  1. Cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.
  2. Cut a 2nd piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock to 3 7/8 x 5 1/4.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 3 3/4 x 5 1/8.  Curl two opposite corners.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Zip a piece of Vellum Cardstock through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  Crop with the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels Die.  Brush with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
  5. Stamp the mermaid (Magical Mermaid) in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Color the tail and hair with an Aqua Painter and the Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, and Melon Mambo Pigment Sprinkles.  Color the body with an Ivory Stampin’ Blend, being careful to not touch the Stāzon Ink as it will bleed.  Set the ink with a Heat Tool.  Brush small areas with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. PIGMENT SPRINKLES TIP:  I sprinkle a tiny bit of each color onto a Clear Block, then grab the color from the block, as needed, with an Aqua Painter.
  6. Snip mermaid with Paper Snips, adhere to the vellum die-cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals hidden beneath the mermaid.
  7. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Add 6 multi-sized Woven Threads Sequins, adhered as shown with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

It is hard to capture all the shimmery goodness on this card in a photo!  The Wink of Stella and the Shimmer White Embossing Powder really make this card shine!  The deep colors of the Pigment Sprinkles bring out the gorgeous colors of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

My Artisan Instagram Tip: Ink Smooching

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Fable Friends Stamp Set!  Such a cute collection of critters that are fun and easy to color.  

As part of the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team, we are asked (and honored) to supply a tip to fellow stampers that is shared on Instagram by @stampinup.  My first tip was published back in February and I shared how you can use punches to create notches to hold twine and thread.  You can see that post here

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 x 4 1/2″.  Smooch with Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

SMOOCHING INSTRUCTIONS:  Cut a Window Sheet down to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 or similar size.  Take the edge of a Classic Ink Pad and press it onto the Window Sheet multiple times, criss-crossing the edge to get decent ink coverage.  Use a Stampin’ Spritzer to apply three pumps of water onto the Classic Ink on the Window Sheet.  Carefully flip it over and gently apply to the piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (NOTE: You must use Shimmery White to get the effects shown). Pick it up off the Shimmery White and apply it again (in a different area) until the desired coverage is

obtained.  Set aside and let dry completely.

 

Use the Daisy Punch to crop two daisies of Vellum Cardstock.  Adhere together (alternating petals) and to the smooched cardstock with Mini Glue Dots.  

Cut a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock to 5/8″ x 3 1/2″.  Rub with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiment (Fable Friends) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the squirrel image (Fable Friends Stamp Set) in Jet Black Stāzon Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Soft Suede (squirrel and daisy center), Coastal Cabana (sailor jacket), Old Olive (daisy leaf/stem), Crushed Curry (daisy petals).  Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere to the strip of Coastal Cabana with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add three Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins as shown.

Here is my tip that was published on Instagram by Stampin’ Up! on May 21st:  

• @stampinup From #ArtisanDesignTeam member Stesha Bloodhart (@stampinhoot):
“Create a quick but gorgeous smooched background using a Classic Ink Pad, Window Sheet, Shimmery White Cardstock & a Stampin’ Spritzer.” Swipe left to see! #ADTtipsandtricks#stampinup #handmadecards#papercraft #crafting #cardmaking#card #watercolortechnique#watercolorwash

Fable Friends Stamp Set byStampin' Up! Coastal Cabana Ink Smooching by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The smooching technique is so simple and every background turns out different. You can add multiple colors of ink, add more ink for depth, or less for a softer feel.  The possibilities are endless!  Play, play, play and you will get a result that you love.
