Happy Friday! TGIFC155

WOW! This week has rushed by so quickly.  I cannot believe it is Friday already!  I have been busy helping others with tax prep, using my new products and creating graphics this week. So, although my post is published a little late, at least it has been published!

This week’s sketch is amazing and I was so happy to use the NEW stamp set Animal Outing.  It was an all attendance giveaway at the Milwaukee #OnStage2018 I attended last weekend.

These images are SO STINKIN’ CUTE! I was so excited when I pulled this stamp set out of my #onstage2018 bag.  The artist has made shading a sinch by adding the shaded spots to the image.  You can quickly apply color with an Aqua Painter and it looks completed with one application.

I used my Paper Snips to crop out each of the animal images.  When the catalog releases on June 1st, Animal Friends Thinlits Dies will be available to order so you can quickly crop them out with your Big Shot.

I love the little details that they added to the images.  The koala peeking out of the kangaroos pocket, the bird perched on the rhino’s horn, the little frog sitting on the branch…#smitten.

There is Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set, but since I don’t have it yet, I decided to show off the fabulous Nature’s Poem.  This is part of a Suite of Products (also called Nature’s Poem) that will be available June 1st, with the new catalog release.

The Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper is unlike any other paper Stampin’ Up! offers!  It is almost like a thin white cardboard feel, but it is stamped with beautiful foil images that is almost impossible to capture its beauty through a photo!  Most of the pieces that I used are silver foil, but the small accents are gold.  I highly recommend this paper if you love the shimmer of foil.

It is so hard to photograph that beautiful shimmer of foil!  The photos make my card look more of a gold, but I can assure you that most of the foil is silver and it sure is gorgeous when held in your hand!

#tgifc152 Technique Time: Marker to Stamp

Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc152 Technique Time - Marker Direct to Stamp Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Friday! TGIFC152

It’s Friday and time for a Technique!  This month’s technique is the Marker Direct to Stamp Technique. I do believe that this is the very first technique I learned when I was introduced to the world of stamping and paper crafting. This is such an easy technique but it can definitely add a wow factor to your projects.

Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc152 Technique Time - Marker Direct to Stamp Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Card Details:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″
  2. Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to 5 3/8 x 5 3/8″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.
  5. Cut 6″ of each: Bermuda Bay Stitched Satin Ribbon & Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive.
  6. Add color to the Definitely Dahlia Stamp with a Stampin’ Write Markers, using the brush end.  I colored the inner part of the flower with Lemon Lime Twist and the outer part with Bermuda Bay.
  7. Huff on the stamp several times to moisten the ink, then stamp on Shimmery White Cardstock.
  8. Crop the Happy Birthday Image 3 times (Shimmery White, Basic Black, and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock) by running through the Big Shot, while inside a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.
  9. Add Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay Ink as shown with an Aqua Painter to the Shimmery White Die Cut.
  10. Adhere the 3 die cuts together, slightly offset, in the following order (bottom up):  Black, Lemon Lime Twist & Shimmery White. Adhere to the Dahlia Image.
  11. Run the smaller die from the Bold Butterfly Framelits through the Big Shot with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock.  Adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  12. Add Clear Epoxy Shapes for a final touch.

 

Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc152 Technique Time - Marker Direct to Stamp Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

As I was skimming my shelves loaded with stamps, I was trying to locate a solid image that I haven’t used much!  I found the PERFECT stamp that I had yet to ink-up!  The Definitely Dahlia Background stamp has been one of my neglected stamps…purchased, put on the shelf, and unused.  Well, it finally got its turn to shine! Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist welcomed it to my craft table and I have to say that I love the results, do you?

 

Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp by Stampin' Up! for #tgifc152 Technique Time - Marker Direct to Stamp Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

The Happy Birthday Thinlit Die was the perfect sentiment to coordinate with the large flower.  I cropped it 3 times with my Big Shot, each with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to easily adhere them together to create multi-colored layers.    This really makes the sentiment pop off the card.

The coloring of the flowers was so much fun.  I went over parts of the petals several times with my Lemon Lime Twist Ink, allowing it to dry before adding more color.
