#tgifc222 – Technique Challenge – Shake It Up with Leaf Ribbon

#tgifc222 Technique Challenge - Shake It Up Shaker Card using Animal Outing from Stampin' Up! Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinup

TGIF! It’s Time for a Technique!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week is a technique!  Let’s shake it up with “shaker cards”.   I have only made a select few shaker cards in my years as a crafter.  They just don’t sit high on my radar so I need a challenge like this one to get me thinking!

I didn’t have a lot of options for the “shaker” part, I have some sequins, but I wanted something different.  I spotted the “frame” that I had left over from a previous creation and it sparked a thought…what if I finally unwrapped the packaging on my leaf ribbon and actually used it? I love it, it’s been sitting on my ribbon shelf just begging to be used…so I decided to chop it up!  I cut the individual leaves off the ribbon and used them as my “shaker”…and I LOVE it! How about you?

 

TGIFC222 Shake it Up!
#tgifc222 Technique Challenge - Shake It Up Shaker Card using Animal Outing from Stampin' Up! Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinup

Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4. 

Zip a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock through a die-cutting machine tucked inside the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  

Use the largest Stitched Nested Label Die and the die-cutting machine to crop the opening as shown.  Lightly mark the bottom edge of the card base with the bottom of the opening (to create a guide of where to stamp).

Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the rhino and sentiment onto the card base with Jet Black Stazōn Ink. Use an Aqua Painter and the following classic inks to add color:  Balmy Blue (sky), Soft Suede (ground), Smoky Slate (rhino), Terracotta Tile & Crushed Curry (bird). 

Adhere a window sheet to the back of the embossed cardstock with Tear & Tape Adhesive, ensuring it covers the opening completely.  Adhere Foam Adhesive Strips along the edge of the die-cut opening.  

Cut several leaves off of a strip of Leaf Ribbon.  Lay on the center of the card and adhere the frame (using the Foam Adhesive Strips you just added).

Stamp the giraffe with Jet Black Stazōn Ink. Use an Aqua Painter and the following classic inks to add color:  Soft Suede & Crushed Curry.  Snip with Paper Snips and adhere, tucked under the frame as shown.

Since I was short on time for this post, I decided to keep the card similar to a previous design, just change up a few elements.

#tgifc220 Sketch Challenge – Beautiful Friendship Wedding Card

TGIFC220 Sketch Challenge Beautiful Friendship Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot

TGIF! It’s Time for a Sketch Challenge!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge.  It’s been awhile since I have participated.  I had a bit of creative time so I decided to join in on the sketch challenge this week. 

I don’t often use Blackberry Bliss for a card base color, but it paired well with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  Adding a touch of Vellum Cardstock softened the look a bit more and I think the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set complimented the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

TGIFC220 Sketch Challenge Beautiful Friendship Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot

Cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4 1/4. 

Cut a piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 5 1/8 x 4.

Use a die-cutting machine and the scalloped edge die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies to crop the edges of both the Vellum Cardstock and Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  Adhere together with Snail Adhesive and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the trio of flowers in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto Vellum Cardstock.  Stamp the leaves (three of each) in Granny Apple Green Ink onto Vellum Cardstock.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. Snip with Paper Snips.

Use a die-cutting machine to crop the leaves using the leaf die from the Detailed Bands Dies. Snip in half with a Paper Snips. 

Layer and adhere all images together and to the card with Mini Glue Dots.  

Rub a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the sentiment (Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Use the scalloped edge die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies to crop the sentiment to size.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere Pretty Peacock Woven Thread Sequins as shown.

A little background on Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper:

What’s the next best thing to having one of Claude Monet’s paintings hanging in your home? Stampin’ Up!’s Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper! One of Stampin’ Up!’s product designers, Julie Alusa, went to New York and was so inspired by Monet’s works of art, she decided to paint her own masterpiece. In her own words: “While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.” So now you can have a little taste of Monet with this beautiful Designer Series Paper. Hand-painted and gorgeous, this paper will go great with any project—even if it’s just for yourself!

A little tip for stamping on Vellum Cardstock:  I love the look of stamping on vellum, but ink takes a while to dry and sometimes just doesn’t set.  How to I fix this?  I stamp on Vellum Cardstock with any color of Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink, cover the stamped image with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with a Heat Tool!  Voila,  you now have a colored image that cannot smear and has a little added touch of texture.

#tgifc211 Just a Card #nolayers – Meet To A Wild Rose

To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

TGIF! It’s time for a challenge!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week we are inspiring you with #simplestamping! Just a card, no layers!  #nolayers I don’t know if I have ever made a card that only has one layer, but you know, this was quick & easy to do…and I encourage you to give it a try.  

My card is giving you a sneak peek to an image and sentiment from the All-New To A Wild Rose Stamp Set from the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, which goes live June 4, 2019. If you can’t wait until June 4 to get your hands on this amazing stamp set (which happens to be part of a bundle), add it to a $99 Starter Kit!  See details on the starter kit and joining me, The Hootenannies & Pals Communities, HERE!

 

#tgifc211 Just a Card #nolayers #simplestamping
To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!(2)

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

Stamp the rose outline image and “hello” sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as shown. 

Color the images with the Following Stampin’ Blends:  Light and Dark Petal Pink, Light and Dark Calypso Coral

Voila! That’s it!

To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

I wanted to show how simple a card could be, yet still have appeal to the recipient.  I didn’t spend a lot of time coloring, I could have and added much more depth and shading, but I decided I wanted to keep it simple and complete in under 10 min.  I accomplished that and I promise you can too.  All it takes is Whisper White Cardstock, Stampin’ Blends, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and Stamps.  I didn’t even take the time to edit my card and remove a few of the little smudges, because lets face it, smudges happen….and nothing needs to be perfect.  It is a handmade card that was made from the heart, the recipient will love it even with a tiny smudge or two. 

To A Wild Rose Stamp Set Only One Layer Card #simplestamping #tgifc211 Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot!

Have I inspired you to try #simplestamping #nolayers Just a Card!  I have inspired myself to try more of them.  I can do it, and the recipient will love it all the same.
