Happy Friday! TGIFC172 Sketch Challenge

I pulled out some new and some old, but all current products, for this TGIFC172 Sketch Challenge.  Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set and Blossom Builder Punch gets the dust brushed off of it and joins forces with Tea Room Designer Series Paper and Ribbon.  Throw in a little Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and you have a perfect combination.

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

Sahara Sand is the perfect color for sand dollars and Old Olive is the perfect color for sea kelp.

You can see everything offered in the Sea of Textures bundle below.  Note: I do have little fish in my scene, they are just pretty small and hard to spot.  I considered them as my shakers in my shaker card frame.

Using a Sponge Dauber to add color to die cuts makes them look just a little more real.  I added color to all of my die cut nets to make them look just a little more worn.

It was easiest to create a canvas to build my scene on.  I didn’t want things moving around much after I sealed it up, so I adhere them in place with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

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

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.
