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,

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.

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.

Give Thanks – October Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop, Line-up of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Showcasing Paper Craft Creations, Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #bloghop #stampinup

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for October 2017. This month our theme is Give Thanks!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Stesha @ Stampin’ Hoot! or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Basket of Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop Give Thanks Theme #basketofwishes #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

I decided to use the stamp set:  Basket of Wishes for my ‘Give Thanks’ themed card.  I thought it would be fun to try out the new Stampin’ Blends (available for purchase November 1st).   I was intimidated by the small details but soon learned that I didn’t have to be.  As long as I used the brush end with light pressure on the detail, it was easy to get the depth with shading I was going for.

Basket of Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop Give Thanks Theme #basketofwishes #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

The Stampin’ Blends I used to color the basket and autumn harvest are the following:

  • Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Bronze
  • Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light and Dark Daffodil Delight

You can download the complete list of Stampin’ Blends available November 1st HERE.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 in x 8 1/2 in and scored/folded at 4 1/4  in.
  • 2nd Layer is a Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4 in x 5 1/4 in and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • 3rd Layer is Wood Textures DSP cut to 3 5/8 in x 5 1/8 in and adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • I did the Watercolor Smooching Technique (I call it Watercolor Splash)on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Soft Suede and Early Espresso Ink.  Then I cropped it out with my Big Shot and a Stitched Framelits Circle Die.  I adhered it to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Note: Download the Watercolor Splash Tutorial Here:  Watercolor Splash Tutorial
  • I took a piece of 1/4″ Copper Trim, pulled it apart and adhered it to the Stitched Circle with a strip of Fast Fuse.
  • The basket and sentiment were from the Basket of Wishes Stamp Set.  I fussy cut each image with my Paper Snips, trimming the sentiment to say ‘Giving Thanks’.  I adhered both of them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added Black Rhinestone Jewels as a final touch to the card.

The Painted Harvest Bundle Takes a Spin with Elegant Eggplant and Sparkly Silver!

The Hoot N’ Easy Friday and Scrapbook Sunday Features are taking a break as I spend a much needed 3-day weekend with my Husband and Boys.  I still wanted to give you glimpses of creations I have made in the past month, but hadn’t had a chance to share on my blog.  Today’s post features the Painted Harvest Bundle from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

I rarely use shades of purple in my creations and I am not sure why as I sure do love the effects, especially when paired with the array of glimmery silver products Stampin’ Up! has available.  I did lots of layers on this card, something I rarely do, but again, need to more often.

If you are not up to fussy cutting out the Sunflower, the Starburst Punch does the job quickly and it still looks amazing.  I love the watercolor look of the sunflower and wanted a background to match.  So I pulled out my trusty Aqua Painter and created a watercolor wash background and I think it did the trick and finished off the card beautifully.
