Animal Expedition Suite of Products from 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #gdp142

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an awesome sketch challenge for you this week!  The Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper, part of the Animal Expedition Suite of products, from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, is front and center!  I love how the images can easily be snipped out and become the focal point of your creation.

I needed quick and easy as I didn’t have a lot of time for this creation!  I love that the images are colored and ready for you!

Animal Expedition Suite of Products from 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #gdp142

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  • Cut at a slight angle, 2 1/2″ from the fold down to approx. 1 1/4″ on the other side.
  • Cut a piece of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper (Giraffe Spots) to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Adhere to the backside of the angled card front with Snail Adhesive.
  • Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around as shown and secure with a bow.
  • Using a Big Shot and Stitched Circle Framelit Die, crop a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Flip the Designer Series Paper around and snip out the sloth, giraffe, and chameleon with a Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Using Washi Tape, mask the Big Time of the “thank you BIG TIME” sentiment stamp. Ink it up in Soft Suede ink, remove the Washi Tape mask and stamp onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Repeat these steps, only this time use the Washi Tape to mask the thank you portion.  Use a Paper Snips to snip apart the sentiment and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Soft Suede is one of my favorite neutral colors!  It coordinates well with the animals from the Animal Expedition Suite, so I used it for my color base, You can click on the image below to view all the items that are included in the Animal Expedition Suite, in my online store!

I went with the New 2018-2020 In Colors as my color palette.  I used Lovely Lipstick as my main color with Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch as my accent colors!  This family of In Colors is so bright and cheery, definitely a needed addition to the Stampin’ Up! color families.

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.
