Be Inspired Blog Hop May 2019: Anything Goes

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to my second hop as part of the Be Inspired Design Team!

This month’s theme is…..Anything Goes!  YAY!  I still have a few creations that I made  back in April that I have yet to share with you.  So I decided this was the ample time to get them out there.  Most of them use a few items that are retiring (and maybe already gone) and I will list all current and retiring products for each creation.  I would love to hear YOUR favorite and why! 

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here!  I am so very honored.  I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too!  You can view my PDF Tutorial Library Here.   You can also subscribe to my Newsletter and Blog Updates so you don’t miss out on future posts!

148403 Bouquet Blooms Bundle

The Bouquet Blooms Bundle, as well as the Faceted Dots, from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog are retiring and only available through June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last. 

The dies included in this bundle are fabricated to create a gate-fold card.  Although I opted to make a standard card, I think the gate-fold card is incredible and would wow any recipient. 

The color combinations on this card are some of my favorite.  Coastal Cabana, my #1 go-to Stampin’ Up! color (can you tell from my blog?) paired with Blackberry Bliss are so yummy! The contrast in colors really make a statement.  

A pop of Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, and Soft Sea Foam compliment the main colors of the card.  The line-art images were colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.  

Pair it with a sentiment from the Well Written Dies and you have the perfect thank you card for a friend. 

Artfully Aware Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Artfully Aware Stamp Set is carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and I am so excited for that.  I love the images and sentiments in this set, they are so “color friendly”.  An Aqua Painter & Classic Inks or Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers do a fabulous job adding the pop of color these images deserve. 

I used the Grapefruit Grove piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper as the mat of the main image.  This fabulous Designer Series Paper is retiring and only available through June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last.  

The Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon is such a gorgeous ribbon and coordinates with the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper well even though it is a slightly different color.  This ribbon is also retiring on June 3, 2019 or While Supplies Last.  

Get these retiring items while you can!  They are an incredible addition to your paper craft collection.

This card also uses the Artfully Aware Stamp Set as well as the retiring Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  Don’t you think the color combinations and designs of this paper are just stunning? I am so happy I have this paper in my collection.  I have used it on several things, including scrapbook pages and handmade envelopes. 

Did you know that the Artfully Aware Stamp Set coordinates with the Support Ribbon Dies?  I love that the line art ribbon stamp can be quickly cropped with the coordinating die or the die can be used on its own with any Designer Series Paper or cardstock. 

The Metallic Pearls, Vellum Cardstock and Be Mine Stitched Dies (heart) are also carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Don’t miss out on all the bundles while they are still 10% off!  You can see ALL the current bundles that will either retire or no longer be available as a “bundle” in my online store here.   Purchase by June 3rd, 2019 before they retire or are no longer available as a 10% savings. 

 

Rooted in Nature by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Rooted In Nature Stamp Set and Nature’s Root Dies will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, BUT they will not be available as Clear-Mount, Wood-Mount, or as a bundle that saves you 10%!  So if you like the Rooted In Nature Bundle, get it while you can still save!

This Thinking of You Card also uses the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and the Faceted Dots that are soon to be gone for good.  

You can shop all retiring products (that are still available) by visiting my online store here

Don’t forget, Stampin’ Up! is transitioning to only producing Cling Mount and Photopolymer Stamp Sets.  The Clear-Mount & Wood-Mount Stamp Sets will no longer be available as of June 4, 2019.  The Stampin’ Trimmer and Big Shot (including all accessories) are also retiring.  Replacement products are to be released at a later date (TBD).

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. 

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

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.
