Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Place inside the Scalloped Stripes Embossing Folder and zip through the Big Shot.
  3. Using the Alphabet Letters from the Pick a Pennant Stamp Set, stamp Happy in between the lines with Basic Black Archival Ink.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Run the triangle pennant die through the Big Shot with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Snip off the ends.
  5. Stamp the dotted triangle into Bermuda Bay Ink then onto the pennant pieces. Adhere to the center of the card with Snail Adhesive.
  6. Stamp the triangle pennant stamp in Fresh Fig ink then onto Whisper White Cardstock. Tip: Before picking up the stamp with a clear block, use the die as a template so that it will perfectly align when you crop it out with the Big Shot.
  7. Adhere the banner, slightly offset so that you can still see the polka dot beneath, with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Cut a 1″ x 1 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Stamp three dotted triangles down the middle in Bermuda Bay Ink.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  9. Stamp the flower in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock (twice).  Use the coordinating stamps to add the Bermuda Bay and Lemon-Lime Twist Color and the coordinating dies to crop with precision.
  10. Stamp the tassels in Bermuda Bay Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Color the circles with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  Crop with the coordinating die and Big Shot.
  11. Crop a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock with the 2 3/8″ scalloped circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits using a Big Shot. Add Snail Adhesive to the back side to adhere Black Metallic Thread and then again to adhere to the card.
  12. Stamp “It’s A Beautiful Day” sentiment (Love What You Do Stamp Set) in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Crop it out with the Stitched Shape Circle Die using the Big Shot and a Magnetic Platform to hold it in place.   Adhere to the Bermuda Bay Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere the flowers as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  14. Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a final touch!

Sunshine & Rainbows for #GDP135 Theme Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone!  Sunshine & Rainbows

I am finally back in the game for the GDP!  This week the Global Design Project has a fabulous theme challenge: Show Me the Sunshine! and living in WI, the sunshine is so very welcome and feels so nice!  I have an array of cards to share with you today!  They were all created using the Sunshine and Rainbows Bundle, which I felt was perfect for this challenge.

Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. Retiring May 31st, 2018. Pizza Box Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Today’s post brings you six creations using the retiring Sunshine & Rainbows Photopolymer Bundle.  I love those little Mini Pizza Boxes and I saw a vision in my mind of a rainbow on the top of it.  I used the largest Layering Circle Framelits Dies to crop out a circle and then I placed a piece of Vellum Cardstock behind it.  I used an array of colors from the Regals Family to create my rainbow.  What do you think?

Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. Retiring May 31st, 2018. Birthday Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

This card is kind of a mirror image of the Mini Pizza Box.  I used the same rainbow of colors but also added some Linen Thread, a small wooden heart from the Hearts & Stars Elements and a shining sun!

I love the sentiments that are included in the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp Set.  The fonts are lovely and I can’t turn down pretty mixed fonts!

Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. Retiring May 31st, 2018. Thinking of You Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

With this card, I created the rainbow using the stamps (instead of the dies).  I stamped it on Shimmery White Cardstock and then used an Aqua Painter to blend the color so it filled in outside of the stamped lines. I then used a Paper Snips to crop out the entire rainbow as a whole.

On this card, I used the large heart from the Hearts & Stars Elements and colored it with Stampin’ Write Markers to mimic the rainbow.  This card makes me thinks of the old Skittles commercial, anyone else think that too?

The unicorn from the Myths & Magic Suite of products pairs perfectly with this Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle, don’t you think? I love the bright and cheery feeling this card portrays.

And last but not least is the card that is bringing on the sunshine!  I created a little shaker card using punches, dies, and vellum, along with the Gold Flakes. Crushed Curry is one of my favorite colors, and I think it works well for the sun!

Sneak Peek Animal Outing Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for #tgifc155 sketch challenge Baby Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC155

WOW! This week has rushed by so quickly.  I cannot believe it is Friday already!  I have been busy helping others with tax prep, using my new products and creating graphics this week. So, although my post is published a little late, at least it has been published!

This week’s sketch is amazing and I was so happy to use the NEW stamp set Animal Outing.  It was an all attendance giveaway at the Milwaukee #OnStage2018 I attended last weekend.

  1. Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut two pieces of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (Available June 1st, 2018) to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.  Adhere together as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Wrap a 24″ piece of Linen Thread several times at the cross-section of the two pieces of Designer Series Paper and secure with a bow.
  4. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the images from the Animal Outing Stamp Set (also available June 1st, 2018) in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.

These images are SO STINKIN’ CUTE! I was so excited when I pulled this stamp set out of my #onstage2018 bag.  The artist has made shading a sinch by adding the shaded spots to the image.  You can quickly apply color with an Aqua Painter and it looks completed with one application.

I used my Paper Snips to crop out each of the animal images.  When the catalog releases on June 1st, Animal Friends Thinlits Dies will be available to order so you can quickly crop them out with your Big Shot.

I love the little details that they added to the images.  The koala peeking out of the kangaroos pocket, the bird perched on the rhino’s horn, the little frog sitting on the branch…#smitten.

There is Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set, but since I don’t have it yet, I decided to show off the fabulous Nature’s Poem.  This is part of a Suite of Products (also called Nature’s Poem) that will be available June 1st, with the new catalog release.

Welcome to the Pals April 2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family-related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Scrapbooking is what got me started in the paper crafting realm.  I love to make a scrapbook layout that reflects back on a memorable moment with my family.  This page shows my husband and son enjoying the view of the lake while dipping their toes in the water, I wish I could see that view every day!

Stampin’ Up! OnStage 2018 Milwaukee Highlights! #OnStage2018

 

I had the honor of being a display stamper at #OnStage2018 in Milwaukee, WI. The photo above shows my display that I created with new products from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (cover shown below). I will be sharing each item on my blog over the next few weeks.  Check back often for updates.

I feel like I have been so distant from my blog, which I guess I have!  I was so busy last week preparing for OnStage in Milwaukee that I just didn’t have the time to hop on my computer and share with you!  I am excited now to be able to share my creations with new products from the Annual Catalog that will go live on June 1st, 2018!

Isn’t the new catalog cover just GORGEOUS!  I have to say, everything inside it is gorgeous as well!  Although I can’t share the inside pages of the catalog, I can share the product that I have in hand and other information.  There is a lot so I don’t want to throw it at you all at once, so I will share throughout this week and the next.

Do you need a copy of the new catalog?  If you have placed an order with me, you already have one scheduled to come to you when they ship.  If you haven’t ordered from me and still want a catalog, please fill out this form: CATALOG ORDER

So, what do you think about the card above?  STUNNING, right?  This was one of the make-n-takes we created at OnStage using all new products.  My favorite items on this card are the Designer Series Paper and the Aged Bronze Leaf Trinkets (my order arrives in just a few minutes, I cannot wait to create with them!)

Another announcement made at #OnStage2018 was a COLOR REVAMP!  I am so excited for this change, I feel it was needed and I cannot wait to have the new colors in my collection to play with!  Here is a look at the new colors and families:

I am most excited for Soft Sea Foam and Gray Granite, but I love all the new colors that are going to be part of the Stampin’ Up! Color Families!

Blue is my FAVORITE color and I am jumping up and down for Blueberry Bushel!  I will be using that color a lot!  It arrives today so I am so excited to see it in person!  Expect a sample of creations using the new In-Colors soon!

We have more color!  Stampin’ Up! has moved Whisper White, Basic Black and Very Vanilla to their own category so we were able to add more colors to the palette!  YAY!

And when we bring in the new, we have to say goodbye to some of the old.  So, here is a list of the colors that are retiring.  Since I use Island Indigo and Soft Sky in my logo and on my blog, I will have to make some changes, but that is ok because I LOVE change.  It keeps things fresh and exciting.

  Now, don’t forget about the retiring items from the Occasions and Annual Catalogs!  They are only available while supplies last or until May 31st!  So print off the retiring lists below and get your orders in so you don’t miss out on those items you have on your wish list!

Don’t freak out! Some things that are on the retiring list are still going to be around, they are just going through a slight change!  New Ink Pad Design!  I will be sharing more with you soon!  Here is a look at what the NEW Ink Pads look like.  Slightly smaller, stackable and reformulated ink!  YAY!

 

Don’t forget, I am offering FREE Aqua Painters for Hoot Loot this month!  Take advantage of that $17 item by ordering and using the host code!
