Happy Friday! TGIFC168

It’s Friday and time for a Sketch Challenge with the TGIFC! The Sea of Textures Bundle was one of my first purchases from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I hadn’t used the bundle yet, and when I saw the sketch, my mind immediately went to the images from the stamp set.  It is a fun bundle to play with and I look forward to using it on future creations!

The color combination was inspired by the Tranquil Texture Designer Series Paper. The mixture of Regal and Subtle Colors is pleasing to the eyes.  I don’t think I will ever tire of this combination!

One of the sneak-peeks from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (available June 1, 2018) that I am sharing with you today, is one that sits in my Top 10 must-haves.   The Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, which I used on the card in this post.  It is also available as a bundle, which includes the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set, along with the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies.  Purchase as the bundle for a savings of 10%!

The details of the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies makes creation a stunning card as easy as 1-2-3.  The dies do the work for you, creating a beautiful focal point by just zipping it through the Big Shot with a piece of Designer Series Paper.

#tgifc160 Thinking of You Card with Wood Texture DSP & Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I do believe that Grapefruit Grove, an All-New 2018-2020 In Color, will be my new favorite.  I love how it paired with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  It is also available in several new Embellishments and as a color in Designer Series Paper Packs.  I highly recommend adding this color to your collection.

#tgifc159 Sketch – Lilypad Lake Sneak Peek

Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #tgifc159 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! It’s Time for TGIFC159

A sketch challenge is on the TGIFC Blog and waiting for you to play along.  A simple sketch that packs a punch! I decided to use the All-New Lilypad Lake Bundle (available June 1st, 2018).  Since we often spend time at our friend’s lake home, this one called to me and it was the first one that I ordered for my collection.

When I saw this sketch, I immediately saw waves behind the point…then rather quickly, my card creation was born!

Thank you to all who commented on my blog for last week’s anniversary celebration!  Patty Schultz, you have won yourself some goodies for taking the time to show some love.  Please email me your address and I will get your goodies in the mail.

 

Lilypad Lake Bundle by Stampin' Up! from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! for #tgifc159 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Take the “waves” stamp, ink it up in Blueberry Bushel Classic Ink and stamp 3 rows on the bottom. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 4″ x 4 1/2″.  Lightly draw a line across the backside at 1 1/2″ up from the bottom and then at 2″ down the middle.  Then draw diagonal lines as shown below to create your cut template. Cut with a Stampin’ Trimmer or Paper Snips.  Wrap the Medium  Night of Navy Baker’s Twine around twice and secure with a bow.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. Stamp the Congratulations sentiment in Pineapple Punch Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
  2. Stamp the sun image in Pineapple Punch Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter.
  3. Stamp the sailboat image in Blueberry Bushel Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
  4. Crop all three images with the coordinating dies from the Lakeside Framelits (part of the Bundle), using a Big Shot and Magnetic Platform.
  5. Adhere the double sailboat image and sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the sun and single sailboat with Snail Adhesive.

Since the sketch was simple, I decided to keep the card simple as well.  You can definitely step it up to your liking but I am digging the simplicity, kind of like the lake…beautiful, yet simple.

The You’ve Got This Stamp Set is one of my top picks from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog Retiring Stamp Sets!  I love it and am kinda sad to see it go, but I am happy to share one last card with you!  Berry Burst and Lemon-Lime Twist are the perfect colors for this flower, don’t you think?

When I watercolor with an Aqua Painter, I first cover the image with a very light coating of the color I am using.  Then I go back after allowing to dry and apply shading to the areas that I want to be darker.  I haven’t had any formal training with watercolor techniques, I just use what I feel works for me. I hope you like it?
