TGIFC333 Sketch – Fun Fold with Cute Halloween

Batty For You Flamingo, Basic Gray and Basic Black Card for #tgifc333 Sketch Challenge Stesha Bloodhart

TGIF! It’s time for a sketch challenge! 

Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects using the sketch shown below. 

I have been pinning over those adorable bats on the Cute Halloween 6×6 Designer Series Paper. I love the colorful graphics with this paper and that they made the opposite side black and white.  It is one of my FAV Halloween Papers that Stampin’ Up! has released.

Be the funhouse this Halloween: Turn ho-hum trick-or-treat sweets into a delectable surprise with Frightfully Cute Bundle. This bundle includes the Frightfully Cute Stamp Set and the Frightful Tags Dies. Mix and match stamped images with die-cut shapes and tag pieces. Images are sized perfectly to fit on small chocolate bars or other sweets for trick-or-treaters.

FRIGHTFULLY CUTE CLING STAMP SET
Use the images on their own, or layer them to create a Halloween scene. Have fun mixing up the sentiments whether you’re feeling punny or you want to go for a more traditional Halloween greeting—this set has it all! Bold images make it easy to stamp in a single color, or stamp with VersaMark ink for a tone-on-tone look. Keep tags simple, or if you’re feeling fancy, add ribbons and embellishments until your project is frightfully cute.

FRIGHTFUL TAGS DIES
Create cute Halloween-themed tags and paper embellishments with the Frightful Tags Dies. This die set includes tag pieces and traditional Halloween imagery that can be mixed and matched for endless options. Layer the tree, stars, and fence images to create a small Halloween landscape. The owl image looks cute perched in the tree or on the fence. Or use the images on their own for simple tags. Some dies include embossed details, giving the die-cut piece more depth and dimension. The owl piece embosses some feathers, the tree embosses some bark details, and the hat embosses a buckle and some shading.

my step by step free hootorial

Begin with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock.  Score at 2 1/4 and 6 3/8.  Fold both towards the center of the card (gatefold). 

Adhere a 4 7/8 x 3 5/8 piece of Basic Gray Cardstock to a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Adhere to the top gatefold flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Cut three 3/4 x 4 7/8 pieces of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.  Adhere to the Basic Gray 1/2 inch in from the side, then 3/4 between each strip. 

Use the brush end of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to flick/splatter color onto the card. 

Use the Frightful Tags circle die, along with a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop both a Basic Black and a Basic White piece of cardstock. 

Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto the white circle die-cut. Adhere together and to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Stamp the sentiment to the bottom inside flap of the gatefold. 

Cut a 1 x 11 strip of Basic Black Cardstock.  Wrap around the card base as shown, creating a belly band.  Note: they will not connect together. 

Crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the Seasonal Labels Die (1 7/8 x 3 3/8) & Ribbon Slots Die. Thread Black & White Gingham Ribbon through the die-cut slots and around the belly band.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the right-center and left-center sides (you do not want to add dimensionals to the area that will contain the opening of the belly band; the belly band needs to slide).  Adhere to the belly band. Secure the ribbon with a bow. 

Crop a piece of Basic White card stock with the 2 1/8 x 2 3/8 Seasonal Labels Die. Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut the bat images from the Cute Halloween 6×6 Designer Series Paper.  Adhere all as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue (small bat on the circle die-cut cannot be popped up).

Embellish with Matte Black Dots.

#tgifc332 Color Challenge with Gorgeous Leaves Bundle

Create this slimline card using the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

TGIF! It’s time for a color challenge! 

Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects using the following color inspiration: 

Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, and Mossy Meadow. 

These colors inspired me to create a fall-themed card using one of my FÅV bundles from the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog: Gorgeous Leaves Bundle. 

Gorgeous Leaves Die Bundle 158609 by Stampin' Up! Order Online with Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

The Gorgeous Leaves Bundle includes the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set and the Intricate Leaves Dies.

GORGEOUS LEAVES CLING STAMP SET
Add a touch of nature to your handmade cards and scrapbook pages using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Layer the leaves over the background images for a dimensional look, or use the background images alone to add visual texture. You can easily create a border by stamping the trio of small leaves in groups.

INTRICATE LEAVES DIES
You can cut out a treeful of leaves in no time when you use the Intricate Leaves Dies. Use the open dies to cut out stamped images, or use the detailed dies to create quick accents. You’ll use these dies all year long—just change the color of cardstock to reflect the changing seasons. You can also layer the detailed dies over cardstock or patterned paper so the bottom layer peeks through.

#tgifc331 Inspiration Challenge – Wild Cats

Wild Cats Hello Card Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! (1)

TGIF! It’s time for an inspiration challenge! 

Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects inspired by “a walk on the wild side”.  

I will admit, this Suite did not call my name.  I wasn’t going to purchase it so I waited until I had rewards to get it for free.  I do love that you can snip the images from the In the Wild Designer Series Paper (and even crop a few with the coordinating dies).  Fussy cutting is a therapy for me…so I love to continue to cut until I get a pretty good scene going. What about you?  Do you have a love or hate relationship with fussy cutting?

In the Wild Suite Collection - 155515 $57.50 by Stampin' Up! Order Online with Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

It’s a jungle out there and this In the Wild Suite Collection has everything you need to let your imagination run wild. The all-occasion sentiments are ideal for handmade greeting cards and gift packaging. Add some big cats and jungle foliage for a positively purr-fect finish. 

The In the Wild Suite Collection includes:

  • Wild Cats Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Big Cats Dies
  • In the Wild Designer Series Paper
  • Animal Print Embossing Folder

Product colors: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Evening Evergreen, Merry Merlot, Soft Succulent

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

Adhere a 5 x 4 piece of In the Wild Designer Series Paper to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop three 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 pieces of Basic White Cardstock and one 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of In the Wild Designer Series Paper with the Layering Diorama Dies. (I used the 3rd and 4th largest dies and rotated the cardstock as needed to offset the die-cuts). 

Use a Paper Snips and the coordinating Big Cats dies to crop the images from the In the Wild Designer Series Paper. 

Layer and adhere all pieces as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Stampin’ Seal. 

Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a 1 1/4 x 1/2 piece of Evening Evergreen Cardstock.  Cover with white Basics Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess powder.  Set with a Heat Tool. 

Staple a loop of Soft Suede 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the left of the sentiment.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Embellish with 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

TGIF! It’s time for a sketch challenge! 

Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects inspired by the sketch below.  I love to watercolor birds and knew that I just had to have the Happy Holly-Days Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2021 July – December Mini Catalog.  In my mind I could see it on a Crumb Cake card base, so I started with that and worked my way into a beautiful Happy Christmas Card.

With this variety of greetings, you can customize your Christmas cards for everyone on your list. And when the holidays are done, you can use the bird on springtime or Easter creations.

    HOLLY BORDER PUNCH
    Build a beautiful festive border with the Holly Border Punch. Create an elegant holly border along the side of a card or scrapbook page. Punch an envelope to create a charming peek-a-boo element for your Christmas cards. So many possibilities with one punch!

    I love Baker’s Twine, but I love Linen Thread even more…so I tend to pull apart the Baker’s Twine to get the look of Linen Thread in the color I am after.  You can also color the Linen Thread with Stampin’ Blends if you do not want to mess with making the  Baker’s Twine thinner.

    In Color Challenge - Stampin' Fancy Friday

    Soft Succulent is my favorite new In-Color, with Pale Papaya a really close 2nd. I have used them the most since their release. My color combo is Soft Suede, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent.⁠

    Created with the Art In Bloom Bundle (I love the NEW Hybrid Embossing Folder), Blending Brushes, and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends.⁠

    Begin by using a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

    Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

    Use Blending Brushes to add Sof Sude and Soft Succulent Classic Ink to a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Shimmery White Cardstock

    Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. 

    Use a Water Painter to splatter water onto the embossed piece. Let sit for 30 seconds.  Dab dry with a paper towel. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Zip another piece of Shimmery White Cardstock through a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder, only this time, add the coordinating Bloom dies.  NEW!  The Hybrid Embossing Folders are made to hold the coordinating dies so that you can crop and emboss all in one run through your machine!

    Use Stampin’ Write Markers to add color to the flower centers (Soft Suede) and lines (Pale Papaya).  Use a Sponge Dauber to add Soft Suede to the edges of the flowers.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Classic Ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Crop with the coordinating Bloom die and a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Adhere as shown with Dimensionals. 

    Embellish with the coordinating Genial Gems as shown.

    ART IN BLOOM PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET
    Build your own flower garden with the Art in Bloom Stamp Set. Stamp the delicate floral images on card fronts to create your own handmade cards. Stamp the line art images first, then stamp with the solid washed images to quickly add a watercolored look. Add one of the all-occasion sentiments included in this set or another one of your choice; the images in this set will work with many sentiments.

    BLOOM DIES & HYBRID EMBOSSING FOLDER
    One product, many uses. Use just the dies to cut images. Or use just the embossing folder to emboss cardstock. Or use them together to cut AND emboss at the same time! The delicate floral imagery looks beautiful on so many projects—handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. Try embossing a card front, then adding die-cut flowers in a different color for effortless coordination. 1 embossing folder, 9 dies.
