Stampin’ Fancy Friday! Two Stamp Challenge

Poinsettia Petals and Beautiful Autumn Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

It’s a Stampin’ Fancy Friday Design Team Creation: Two Stamp Challenge!

How much do we love Stampin’ Up! stamps? 😍😍 DOUBLE! So this month we offered a challenge to combine two different stamps together on the same fancy project! Could be words from a stamp set mixed with the images from another? Could be an Annual catalog stamp with a Mini Catalog stamp? What stamps would you put together? ⁠

Now go get out your current favorite stamps and start creating! Tag us or use #stampinfancyfriday when you share. ⁠

HOW STAMPIN’ FANCY FRIDAY WORKS: We’ll be posting a challenge on the first Friday of every month over on Instagram and Facebook. And then we’ll show you our team projects as the month progresses. We can’t wait to have you around so any time you’re inspired by our challenge, tag us in or use hashtag #stampinfancyfriday. Ok, it’s time! Go follow us on Instagram and Facebook – @stampinfancyfriday. Stay inspired. See you there!

 

Stamp Review Crew - Inspiring You One Stamp at a Time

For my Stampin’ Fancy Friday Design Team Creation, I decided that I love the beauty of the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and the gorgeous typography of the Beautiful Autumn sentiments…so pairing those two stamp sets together makes for one STUNNING card!

Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty #tgifc280 Color Challenge

Warm & Toasty from Stampin' Up! for the #tgifc280 Color Challenge. Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! (2)

 

TGIF! It’s Time for a Color Combination Challenge!

Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for a color challenge!  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Suede!  

My 8 year-old son begged for me to purchase the Warm & Toasty Stamp Set.  Before he left for school this morning, he asked if my creation today could be something using that set…so, this warm wishes to you card was assembled. Isn’t that reindeer adorable?  One of my favorite colors to use with Stampin’ Blends is Soft Suede.  You can get such a variation in depth of color!

Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz are not available as Blends, so I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to add those colors to the reindeer and bear.  You can still get great color depth, you just have to have a light touch and shade the proper areas.

Warm & Toasty from Stampin' Up! for the #tgifc280 Color Challenge.  Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Begin by using a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/2.

Fold a 1 1/2 piece of Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon and staple it to the upper left-hand corner of a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, along with the curvy edge die from the Home Together Dies set, to crop the Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, and Pear Pizzazz cardstock pieces. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the three images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Cut out closely with Paper Snips.  Color with the following:  Light & Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend, Color Lifter, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Cut with Paper Snips. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments.

Separate a piece of Black/White Baker’s Twine (Playful Pets Trim Combo) so that you just have white thread pieces.  Tie in a bow and adhere with a Mini Glue dot.

Grace’s Garden & July Pals Blog Hop!

Pals July 2020 Blog Hop Badge

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Card made with Grace's Garden Stamp Set & Garden Gateway Dies by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2020 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I just returned from 4 days on the lake!  Lots of tubing, skiing, and just floating around.  We all got a little too much sun and looked liked tomatoes even after applying sunscreen every few hours.  It was hot and sunny, but lots of fun was had.  I am exhausted but happy to find some time to break in my Grace’s Garden Stamp Set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies.  

This card definitely morphed several times from my original creation.  I even photographed and thought I was done, but then decided to change it up again.  A few things were added to cover up the previous layout (2 birds instead of one, additional flowers to cover up previously stamped images….) so maybe not exactly what I envisioned, but I am happy with it.  Lots of bright flowers to make you smile.  

Card made with Grace's Garden Stamp Set & Garden Gateway Dies by Stampin' Up! Card created by 2020 Artisan Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/2.  Tear about 1/4″ off the bottom, then distress both the top and bottom edge with a Bone Folder. 

Create a notch on the right-hand side with the Classic Label Punch.  Separate some Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine (part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) and use the white to triple wrap around the DSP, securing to the left-hand side with a bow. 

Cut a 3″ piece of Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon, fold it in half, then staple it to the center of the baker’s twine bow. 

Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the images (Grace’s Garden) in Jet Black Stazon onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Color with the Fine-Tip Water Painter and the following Classic Inks:  Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Smoky Slate.

Zip each image through a die-cutting and embossing machine with the coordinating Garden Gateway Dies.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess powder, then set with a Heat Tool.  Trim closely with Paper Snips. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere three Clear Flowers for Every Season Gems with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen for the final touch.
