Spooky Sweets Bundle by Stampin' Up! Halloween Mini Pizza Box Gift Packaging by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #tgifc178 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC178

It’s Friday and time for a Theme!  This month’s theme is Holiday Prep. Since the next holiday coming up is Halloween, and one of my favorites, I decided to create a little Spooky Treat Mini Pizza Box.  Gorgeous Grape is my favorite purple and works perfectly for Halloween.

Spooky Sweets Bundle by Stampin' Up! Halloween Mini Pizza Box Gift Packaging by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #tgifc178 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Open a Mini Pizza Box and use a Sponge Brayer to apply Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Use a Heat Tool to set the ink.
  2. Cut a piece of Black 5/8″ Organdy Glittered Ribbon and wrap around the Mini Pizza Box, securing with a bow.
  3. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut two 1 1/4″ x 6″ strips of Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Zip through the Big Shot in between the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  Fold along the embossed stripes, alternating fold direction. Connect the ends with Tear n’ Tape.  Push together to form a circle and set with a hot glue gun.  Adhere to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Cut a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 1″.  Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Adhere to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Sponge on Daffodil Delight Ink until you have desired coverage.  Stamp the background stamp in Gray Granite over the right half the moon (resemble cloud cover).   Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Crop a piece of the Black Foil Sheets with the Spooky Bats Punch.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add 3 Black Faceted Dots for a final touch.

It has been FOREVER since I created a 3-D Item…I get caught up in cards and forget how fun they are to create.  The Mini Pizza Box is perfect for a quick and easy gift package for any occasion.  Color coordinate it to your liking by adding ink with a Sponge Brayer and setting it with a Heat Tool.

I love creating rosettes and the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes it that much easier (thanks to a tip from Artisan and friend, Connie Collins). Don’t have the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder?  The Simply Scored Tool works well and doesn’t limit you on the sizes of your rosette.  A hot glue gun is the best adhesive to keep the rosette neat and tidy.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  2. Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Add two strips of Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers 3/4″ on center from the edge.  Cut 4 pieces of Coastal Cabana Tea Room Ribbon to 6″ long.  Adhere (as shown) securing the ends on the backside with Snail Adhesive.

I have a feeling this Beautiful Baubles Bundle is going to be a sleeper set, but I knew I had to have it when I laid eyes on it.  I hadn’t used the new shimmer paint yet, and had an idea to create a bulb in copper…so my card was born…and Bermuda Bay and Copper just happen to be a favorite combination of mine!  All you have to do is take a peek at my jewelry 🙂 .

Beautiful Baubles Bundle by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc177 Sketch Challenge, Christmas Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls were the perfect addition to the bulb.  Tranquil Tide was close enough to Bermuda Bay (watercolor) that even though it was not an exact match in color, they still coordinated well.

#tgifc176 Color Challenge – Meet Country Home

TGIF! It’s time to meet Country Home!
Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s time for some amazing color!  Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana, and Pumpkin Pie make for a fabulous country color feel!  I immediately thought of the new Country Home Stamp Set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog when I saw the challenge!

#tgifc176 Color Challenge, Early Espresso, Coastal Cabana & Pumpkin Pie
Country Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Simply Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart for the TGIF Challenge #tgifc176 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Using a Stamparatus and Early Espresso Ink, stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.  Cut down to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim the excess edges with a Paper Snips so they line up with the card base.
  3. With a Paper Snips, cut a Chicken Wire Element to 7 loops wide.
  4. Stamp the sentiment (from the Country Home Stamp Set) in Early Espresso onto Coastal Cabana Cardstock two times.  Snip the Thankful out, closely, with a Paper Snips. Adhere over the top of the 2nd stamped image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Crop, slight offset, with a Big Shot and the large Stitched Oval Framelit Die.  Adhere to the Chicken Wire and card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the Milk Can & Flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Soft Suede Combo, Bronze, Smoky Slate Combo, Pumpkin Pie Combo, Light Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay. Snip out with a Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Color 3 Frosted Droplets with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere as shown.

If you haven’t noticed, I love to fussy cut…I would say it is my therapy.  So this card I decided to fussy cut the milk can and floral image, and also snipped the thankful from the sentiment!  I gave it a pop by adhering it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I highly recommend the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool)!  It helps ensure you get a perfectly stamped image by allowing you to stamp multiple times..  I stamped the Buffalo Check image three times to get the coverage I needed.

Country Home Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Simply Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart for the TGIF Challenge #tgifc176 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Country Home is a photopolymer stamp set that is part of the Country Lane Suite of products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Pairing it with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp is a match made in heaven!  I am a country girl at heart and also #madforplaid so both of these stamps sets speak to me in so many levels.

Here is a closer look at the Country Home stamp set.  So many beautiful sentiments put together with gorgeous fonts.  The images are so much fun to color!  I cannot wait to play with this set more!

I know I may OVERLOAD you with photos of my creations, but I want people to CASE my work!  I feel that many photos with different views help to see how a creation was put together and makes it easier to recreate it yourself.  What are your thoughts?  Do you like all the photos or do you think it is overkill and takes up too much space?  I love your opinion, give it to me straight!  Comment Here

#tgifc170 Inspiration : Tropical Chic on Repeat

Tropical Chic Bundle by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc170 Repeat After Me Inspiration. Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC170

It’s time for some Inspiration!  Repeat After Me…Tropical Chic is fun to repeat!  Tropical Chic is fun to repeat.

I decided to repeat the fronds and flowers from the Tropical Chic Bundle.  The color inspiration came from the Tropical Escape 6x6 Designer Series Paper, which is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Sale that ends in just a few days, on July 31st!

Tropical Chic Bundle by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc170 Repeat After Me Inspiration. Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  2. Cut a piece of Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 3″.  Using 2nd generation stamping (stamp off on scrap paper prior to stamping on the Shimmery White) stamp the fronds in Lemon Lime Twist Ink alternating top and bottom as you stamp.  Don’t be afraid to overlap the fronds, it will be covered with the 2nd layer.
  4. Add depth by using an Aqua Painter to add darker areas of Lemon Lime Twist Ink to the fronds. A clear block works great as a palette to hold a drop of ink refill to color with.
  5. Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink as shown. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the smaller palm frond 3 times onto Shimmery White Cardstock using the same techniques as above.  Crop them out with a Big Shot and coordinating die cut.  Adhere to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Using the same technique as above, stamp the flower 4 times in Petal Pink Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Add Flirty Flamingo using an Aqua Painter.  Crop with a Big Shot and coordinating die cut.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals, trimming the flowers flush with the end using a Paper Snips.

Lemon Lime Twist, Petal Pink, and Flirty Flamingo are a lovely color combination that you can find in the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Only 4 days remain on the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Sale.  You can see all the details on my Amazing Monthly Specials Page found here:  Click to View July Specials

 

Tropical Chic Bundle by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc170 Repeat After Me Inspiration. Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

By using the 2nd generation stamping technique (stamping off on scrap paper prior to stamping on the cardstock), and then adding a bit more color with an Aqua Painter, you get a nice watercolored look!  Lemon Lime Twist is one of my favorite colors for watercoloring as every layer of color adds a lot of depth.
