Happy Friday! TGIFC145

It’s Friday and time for a Color Challenge with the TGIF Challenge Blog.  The color palette is pinks:  Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, and Powder Pink. I thought they went perfectly with Petal Palette Bundle.  I hope you enjoy my creation.

Card Details

  • Cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11 in, score and fold at 5 1/2 in, creating a card sized to fit perfectly into our Medium Envelopes.
  • Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5 in, add subtle color by smooching Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride and Powder Pink to the Shimmery White Cardstock.
  • Run Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink Cardstock through the Big Shot with the intricate floral dies.  Cut each piece in half, then, using the adhesive of your choice, adhere them to the back edge of the Shimmery White Cardstock.  Then adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Card Base.
  • Stamp each image in Basic Gray Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  I stamped the following quantities:
    • Bird – Qty 1
    • Large Flowers – Qty 1
    • 5-Flower Stem – Qty 4
    • 2-Flower Stem – Qty 4
    • Foilage – Qty 4
    • Sentiments – Thank You – Qty 1,  For Everything – Qty 1
  • All images were colored with an Aqua Painter & Pear Pizzazz, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride and Powder Pink Classic Ink
  • I added Fast Fuse Adhesive to the back of the Large Flower Image, then strategically added the remaining pieces, adhering to the Shimmery White Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sentiments were fussy cut/snipped with my Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added 4 Glitter Epoxy Shapes as a final touch to the card.

Bird Banter for the GDP122 Sketch Challenge

Toucan of Appreciation for GDP122!

Bird Banter Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalog for GDP122 Sketch Challenge by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #gdp122

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome to another Global Design Post, GDP122. This week is another sketch challenge and it’s a fun one!  The rest of the design team has knocked it out of the park, so many absolutely stunning creations!

Yesterday I created a card for The RemARKable InkBig Blog Hop using this same set.  Since I had cardstock pieces already cut (leftovers from that card) I decided to use the same color palette, just changed it up a bit.  The colors are so bright and bold, such a change from my normal style of rustic and earth tones.

The sentiments in this set have puns that make it so much fun!  The bird images are so fun to color!  I highly recommend adding it to your collection!  My card from yesterday was colored with Classic Ink Refills and the Medium Aqua Painter.  Today’s bold look was obtained from using the Stampin’ Blends!

Pinterest is my friend, I use it on a daily basis.  The bird was colored to match a photo from searching “Tropical Birds”.

A Simple Thanks With At Home With You

A Simple Thanks With The At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Created by Stesha Bloodhart, See Details at Stampin' Hoot! #athomewithyou #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #thankyoucard

I don’t often create simple cards, but sometimes simplicity is perfect.  I also love papercrafts with a rustic feel and this portrays that feeling well.  Day One of OnStage in Salt Lake City has come to an end…I am happy to be off my feet and in a cozy bed :).  It was so much fun seeing people that I often chat with online.  It’s nice to finally put a voice to a face and meet everyone that is as passionate about this craft as I am. We were showered with gifts, ideas and lots of exciting news that I cannot wait to share with you when I can,

A Simple Thanks With The At Home With You Bundle by Stampin' Up! Created by Stesha Bloodhart, See Details at Stampin' Hoot! #athomewithyou #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #thankyoucard

This card was fairly quick to create.

  • I cut my standard, go-to, card base of 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5 1/2 in. in Whisper White Cardstock.
  • I then cut the 2nd Layer of Whisper White 1/4 in smaller than the base, wrapped a piece of 5/8 in. Burlap Ribbon around it and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I ran a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock through my Big Shot with the Stitched Shaped Oval Framelit. I added Fast Fuse Adhesive to the backside and then added loops of Linen Thread to it before adhering to the 2nd Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the images from the At Home With You Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock and colored them with Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter.  They adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • Pumpkins:  Pumpkin Pie and Always Artichoke
    • Planter: Crumb Cake and Early Espresso
    • Flowers:  Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Always Artichoke
    • Sign: Crumb Cake
  • I added three Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shapes to the card as the final touch.

Tip: After adding the first layer of color with an Aqua Painter, wait for it to dry and add a second layer of color to get dimension.

Grateful for the At Home With You Bundle

At Home With You Bundle Autumn Scene and Grateful Sign by Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #stampinup #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

Currently, I am in the air, on my way to Salt Lake City for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Event.  Three days of gatherings with other fellow demonstrators to view upcoming products, learn business tips and tricks and have fun.  I have met so many wonderful people virtually and now I finally get to have the chance to meet them in person! I will try to bring you posts as I am away, but they may be scarce depending on the fun factor of Salt Lake.

Today I bring you another card using the At Home With You Bundle from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. This was created for the InkBig Academy Design Team and I am excited to now share it with you!

At Home With You Bundle Autumn Scene and Grateful Sign by Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #stampinup #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

I rarely create cards with one layer, but the amazing Embossing Paste gives enough definition that I feel multiple layers are not needed. For this card, I mixed the Embossing Paste with a few drops of Crumb Cake Classic Ink. I wanted the brick wall to coordinate with the Crumb Cake 3/8 in Classic Weave Ribbon, which was wrapped around the Card Front and secured with a knot.

At Home With You Bundle Autumn Scene and Grateful Sign by Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #stampinup #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

I stamped the images with Basic Black Archival Ink and added color with my trusty Aqua Painter.  The colors used are as follows:

  • Door, Sign, and Planter: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede & Early Espresso
  • Sunflowers: Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, & Early Espresso
  • Pumpkins: Pumpkin Pie & Always Artichoke

All images adhered to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals

Painted Harvest Thankful Card for GDP112

Painted Harvest Bundle by Stampin' Up! for a Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart for GDP112 #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #GDP112

Welcome to another week with the Global Design Project.  This week is CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) THE DESIGNER and it happens to be the extremely talented Connie Collins!  We were given the beautiful Fall pumpkin card shown below to CASE and I was more than happy to oblige.  I had already stamped and cut the sunflowers for another project I was unable to complete so I decided to use them for mine.

GDP112 Case the Designer Connie Collins #GDP112

Every time I look at Connie’s card I see more detail than I had before.  I just now noticed the Perfect White Accents that she has removed the backing on to add an array of clear enamel circles. Love it, never thought of that!

Painted Harvest Bundle by Stampin' Up! for a Thankful Card by Stesha Bloodhart for GDP112 #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart #GDP112

Here are the details of my card:

  • The stamp set I used is Painted Harvest, which is part of a bundle that includes the wonderful Leaf Punch. Be sure to purchase the bundle to save yourself 10%.
  • The Card Base is Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock.  I cut it to a standard size of 4 1/4 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.
  • The 2nd Layer is Early Espresso Cardstock cut 1/4 in smaller than the Card Base at 4 in x 5 1/4 in. It adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The 3rd Layer is Very Vanilla Cardstock cut 1/8 in smaller than the 2nd Layer at 3 7/8 in x 5 1/8 in. It adhered to the 2nd Layer with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • The Sunflowers were stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock with the following Classic Ink Colors:  Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso.  Each Sunflower was fussy cut with Paper Snips, placed strategically on the 3rd Layer.  As it found its place on the edges, I snipped off the overlap and found a new home for the snipped pieces to fill in the 3rd Layer with Sunflowers. I then stamped the leaves and ferns with Early Espresso.  I quickly cropped the leaves out with the coordinating punch and fussy cut the ferns. I found their home and adhered them with Fast Fuse.
  • I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso on a strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock cut to 1 in x 3 1/4 in.  The end was quickly flagged with the Banner Triple Punch. I then cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to 1 1/8 in x 3 1/2 in and snipped the end to complement the top layer.
  • I took the 1/4 in copper trim, pulled it apart to create a piece of mesh and layered it underneath the sentiment prior to adhering it to Top Layer.  I added several loops of Linen Thread to the end, securing it with a bow.
