I love the look of white embossing on Crumb Cake cardstock.  The All My Love 12x12 Designer Series Paper sets the color combination for this card.  The color to my stamped images has been added with our lovely Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers.  They are a staple in my craft room and I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them….well, I would watercolor, but I love the blends just as much.

#GDP156 – Stitched All Around Wedding Card

Stitched All Around Bundle by Stampin' Up! Best Wishes Wedding Card by Stesha Bloodhart Stampin' Hoot! for #GDP156 Case the Designer

Happy Monday Everyone!

The Global Design Project has an amazing challenge for you this week!  CASE = Copy and Selectively Edit the talented designer Kerstin Kreis.  Although my card looks quite a bit different than hers, I took my inspiration from the flowers (Love What You Do) and using an embossing folder for my background (Tufted).

I had a wedding on Saturday for my cousin and their colors were Navy Blue and Dark Gray…so I based my card on the colors for the wedding and went from there.

GDP156 Case the Designer Challenge

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Run through the Big Shot tucked inside the Tufted Embossing Folder.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Run a piece of Night of Navy through the Big Shot with the largest Stitched Square Framelit Die and the Stitched Heart Die.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the background stamp in Night of Navy onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Crop with the Stitched Label Framelit Die.  Add Snail Adhesive to the backside and adhere loops of Silver Metallic Thread. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Crop a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper with the Stitched Label Framelit Die.  Stamp Best Wishes in Night of Navy Ink and set with a heat tool.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the flower from the Love What You Do Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Color with Night of Navy Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.  Snip with Paper Snips.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add Silver Metallic Pearls as a final touch.

The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a statement all on its own.  It really stands out on the Galvanized Metallic Paper.  All the stitched goodness paired together on the card pulls your eyes in and keeps them occupied.  The Stitched All Around Framelits and coordinating stamp set are at the top of my list for must-haves. Do you have them?

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!

Cake Soirée Wedding Card for GDP123

Cake Soirée for GDP123

Cake Soirée Wedding Card for GDP123 Theme Challenge by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome to another Global Design Post, GDP123. This week is a theme challenge of New Beginnings, so I broke in my new Cake Soirée Bundle and created a wedding or shower card with that fabulous cake. I wanted to use my Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon, so I decided to use Berry Burst as my main color. I hope you like my creation.

Cake Soirée Wedding Card for GDP123 Theme Challenge by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Card Details:

  1. I cut Berry Burst Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11 in. with my Stampin’ Trimmer, then Scored/Folded at 5 1/2 inches for a standard sized card that fits perfectly in our Medium Sized Envelopes.
  2. I then cut Vellum Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 in, adhering it to the card base with two Stampin’ Dimensionals that will hide behind the main focal image. Prior to adhering the Vellum, I took my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, squeezed it and then shook it over the Vellum to add specks of shimmery goodness.
  3. I stamped the Cake Image on Shimmery White Cardstock with Versamark Ink, I then added Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder which I set with my Heat Tool.  I zipped it through the Big Shot with the coordinating framelit cake die to quickly crop it out.  I colored the flowers with my Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker and the greenery with my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.
  4. I stamped the Best Wishes Sentiment on Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Gray Archival Ink and then snipped it out with my Paper Snips, adhering it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals cut in half.
  5. I ran Silver Foil Sheets with Framelits Dies through the Big Shot to create the Cake Stand.  I just LOVE the beautiful detail!  Easily clean up the image by running the Big Shot Die Brush over the top of it.
  6. I took a piece of Berry Burst and Whisper White Metallic Edge Ribbon, cut off the Metallic End so that I could shred/pull apart the fibers to place behind my cake image.  The fibers adhered to the back of the cake with Fast Fuse adhesive and the entire image adhered to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. The final touches were made by adding Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins in Berry Burst and Rhinestone Basic Jewels strategically on the Vellum.

 

 

Cake Soirée Wedding Card for GDP123 Theme Challenge by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

I was on the fence in regards to ordering this bundle as I do not make many wedding cards, but I am so glad that I did!  I love the beautiful floral images and that CAKE! I am not a baker or a cook, it’s just not my thing, but if I was, I would want to make artistic cakes with lovely details, just like the one in this bundle!  I LOVE all the details dies that come with it to create that WOW factor.

Cake Soirée Wedding Card for GDP123 Theme Challenge by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

At OnStage in Salt Lake City, Sara, the CEO, showed us how to “shred” the ribbon to make a beautiful fiber element to place behind your main focal image.  This is the second time I have incorporated it into my project and I just LOVE the look, soft and pretty!  I encourage you to give it a try, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Fabulous Flamingo for GDP Sketch Challenge 090

Global Design Project Sketch Challenge 090 #gdp090 #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Fabulous Flamingo for GDP Sketch Challenge 090

When I saw this sketch challenge over at Global Design Project, I immediately thought of the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set and how I could use it to compliment this design!  #GDP090

Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Featured on My Blog, Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart, Also Global Design Project Sketch Challenge 090 #stampinup #fabulousflamingo #gdp090 #cards

I am pretty happy with the results because I was able to incorporate a lot of new product into the card. Although you can’t see a lot of it, the Shimmer Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz is DIVINE!  The entire Shimmer Ribbon line may be my favorite, but it’s hard to say because I haven’t even used 1/16 of my newly arrived ribbon supply!

The color combination is very similar to last weeks GDP Color Challenge.  This time I coordinated with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (my top pick for DSP in the New Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog). I picked Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Pear Pizzazz as my ink colors on my stamped and watercolor images. The Flamingo (3-Step Stamping) and the sentiment are both from the new Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set.

I ran the largest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit through the Big Shot to cut the oval.  Ran it through the Big Shot again in between the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add texture.  Then I added watercolor to the “debossed” areas with Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White Cardstock.  The “Tickled Pink for Sentiment” was also stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink and then the end was flagged using the Paper Snips to get it just the right length for the area.
