The Geared Up Garage Bundle is perfect for a masculine paper craft creation.  I decided to stick with two cards to inspire you.

 

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″. 

Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″. Use a Clear Block B to stamp the nut trio in Versamark Ink randomly onto the DSP.  Cover with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the gear die (Garage Gear Thinlits). Press the Versamark Pad directly onto the cardstock, but be care to not cover the entire die cut. Cover with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip the die cut in half.  Adhere as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a piece of Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to 2 x 4 1/8″.  Wrap the left end with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine, thread through a key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements and secure with a bow.   Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the 2 3/8″ Stitched Circle Framelit Die. Cut a 90 angle in the bottom right.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the “Best Dad” image in Pumpkin Pie Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Blend with a Blender Pen.  Crop with the Big Shot and coordinating die.

Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the coordinating die (sign frame).  Press the edges into a Versamark Pad, cover with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Stamp the car image in Jet Black Stāzon onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating Garage Gear Thinlit Die.  Color with an Aqua Painter, Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie Ink.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Add 6 Basic Black Best Route Enamel Shapes for the final touch.

The Classic Garage Metal Elements are so fun and can easily be added to a creation with the help of a Mini Glue Dot.

Pear Pizzazz! Such a pretty color and so expressive when used in watercolor. The Shimmer Ribbon is gorgeous and I don’t grab it enough.  The clear Frosted Flower Embellishments added the perfect touch to complete the card.

    Pals Blog Hop: Spring has Sprung!

    Pals Blog Hop February 2019 Stesha Bloodhart. Stampin' Hoot! #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

    Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

    Better With You Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    As I scanned my shelves lined with stamp sets, I was hoping one would catch my eye that I had yet to ink up…lets just say, there are a lot more of those sets then I want to admit…but, since the birds will soon be returning to us in Northern Wisconsin, this one called to me…and I am so happy that it did. 

    Step-by-Step Instructions:

    1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
    2. Cut a piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″.  Zip through the Big Shot tucked inside the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. Adhere to the card, slanted slightly to the left, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
    3. Cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5″.  Adhere, slanted slightly to the right, with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
    4. Use a Clear Block D to randomly stamp the background image in Jet Black Stāzon ink onto the right side of a 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″ piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Use an Aqua Painter to add Soft Suede Ink, starting on the left side and filling to the right to keep the shadowed look.   Use the Classic Label Punch to notch the top and bottom of the cardstock at 1/2″ in from the right side. Wrap with one loop of Linen Thread, securing with a bow. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
    5. Thread a True Gentleman Button with Linen Thread and adhere as shown with a Mini Glue Dot. 
    6. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the bird and sentiment in Jet Black Stāzon ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  Crop the sentiment using the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and Bunch of Labels Framelit Die. Snip the flagged end off the right side and adhere,  tucked under the Linen Thread as shown, with a Snail Adhesive.  TIP: Only adhere the right side so that you can pop the left side up like a flag. 
    7. Color the bird using an Aqua Painter and the following classic inks: Blueberry Bushel, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, and Crushed Curry. Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

    Better With You Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    I find my inspiration for my watercolor images on Pinterest.  This bird was close to the first one that popped up in my search feed and I knew immediately that I wanted to use the same colors on my creation.  Blueberry Bushel, Cajun Craze, and Soft Suede are colors like work well with an Aqua Painter.  Depth can be obtained rather easily if you keep the water amounts low.  What do you think?

    Better With You Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    I love the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies..they are so versatile and make sentiment cropping a breeze.  I probably use this flagged banner the most and it just happened to fit this sentiment to a T.  Love when that happens, don’t you?

    Better With You Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Vellum Cardstock adds the perfect touch of softness to match the watercolor image. Adhere the layers slanted slightly for a touch of artistic feel. I love, love, love this. 

    GDP180 CASE the Designer – Stesha Bloodhart

    Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

     

     

    Happy Monday Everyone!

    The GDP is this week is Case the Designer…and that designer just happens to be yours truly!  I am so honored to have my creation as the inspiration to this weeks challenge.  I hope that you play along.  You can use any part of my card as the inspiration for the CASE (Copy and Share Everything)…color, design, stamp set, anything that inspires you!

    GDP180 Case the Designer
    Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Step-by-Step Instructions:

    1. Use a Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.  
    2. Cut a piece of Botanical Butterly Designer Series Paper to 4 x 5 1/4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 
    3. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5″.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    4. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the vases, flowers, shelf (Varied Vases), and sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as the outline and the following for colors:  Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody.  Crop the vases with the coordinating Vases Builder Punch.  Snip the flowers and shelf with Paper Snips. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim the sentiment to size and flag the end with the Tailored Tag Punch. 
    5. Add three Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamels Dots for an added touch.

    Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    I decided to CASE my card by using the new coordinating Vibrant Vases from the 2019 Occasions Catalog, the same colors for the vases and flowers, and same layout. The 2nd layer is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase.  The Designer Series Paper is AMAZING and the black and white designs are the perfect touch to so many creations…I highly recommend this Designer Series Paper. 

    Vibrant Vases Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Celebrate card created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    I I love that the Vibrant Vases Stamp Set is two-step stamping at it’s best.  The background colors have a subtle texture that makes adding color to your creations so easy.  They don’t need to be perfect to make the the vases pop.
