Beautiful Day Sneak Peek for GDP117 Color Challenge

I stamped the Butterfly in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Watercolor Paper.  I used my Heat Tool to dry and set the ink more quickly.  I then added a few drops of color from my Stampin’ Ink Refills into my Watercolor Paint Tray Palette, grabbed my Aqua Painter and started adding color.  I wanted to make sure to leave some white space in each section of the wings and I really like the effect.

#tgifc37 Sketch Challenge – Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day Stamp Set from 2018 Occasions Catalog for TGIFC137 #tgifc137 Sketch Challenge #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot #beautifulday

It’s Friday!  Time for another TGIF Challenge!  This week it’s a sketch, which made for a quick and easy card! I decided to dig into my stash of items from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog, available January 2, 2018! #tgifc137

The Beautiful Day Stamp set consists of 5 stamps.  3 Images and 2 sentiments.  The flower and butterfly images are perfect for coloring with the New Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  I used the Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry,  Light Night of Navy and Light and Dark Old Olive on my flower.

Such a simple sketch that can be used to portray stunning results.  I sometimes have a hard time keeping my cards simple, so it is nice to have a sketch to follow that keeps me from going over and above….making my followers feel the design is out of their reach…I promise you, this one is well within your reach!

The Designer Series Paper I used on my card is from the Petal Passion Suite of Products, also from the upcoming 2018 Occasions Catalog! It may be my 2nd Favorite DSP of all times (Wood Textures is my #1). It is Double Sided and Black & White ready for you to add any color you need.  SO versatile.

When coloring the flower with the Stampin’ Blends, I started with the Light Night of Navy, adding it to the inside lines to create the look of shadows and depth. The next color I added was the Dark Rich Razzleberry, leaving white on the outer edges. Next, I used the Light Rich Razzleberry, filling in the remaining white areas and also going over the previous colored areas to help blend out the hard lines.

My strips of DSP were cut to 1 in x 4 3/4 in and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I didn’t like the amount of space between my DSP Strips and Card Base so I added a 2nd Layer of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to give it a bit more dimension.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with Basic Black Archival Ink, the fussy cut it out to get just the “Happy Birthday” portion of the sentiment.

I felt the Black Rhinestone Jewels were the perfect accent to finish up my card.  These are retiring so if you have your eye on them, order them NOW as I don’t think they will last through January 2, 2018.

Creating Kindness Blog Hop; Because We Care

Let's Play Hockey Holiday Extravaganza Christmas Banner for Creating Kindness Blog Hop Special Guest Designer Stesha Bloodhart #creatingkindnessbloghop #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

Welcome to the Creating Kindness Blog Hop! I was so honored to be asked to participate in this month’s hop as a guest designer! I hope I can inspire those who visit my blog!  The theme of this month’s hop is Because We Care : Cards to Charities.  Although my main share is not a card, it is a part of the backstory of my ‘charity’ of choice.

Creating Kindness Blog Hop - Guest Designer - Stesha Bloodhart #creatingkindnessbloghop #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot

In the months of October through March, my schedule get’s extremely busy!  I work several hours a day volunteering my time to the River Falls Youth Hockey Association.  I have two sons; Preston, Age 8 (almost 9) and Parker, Age 5 (soon-to-be 6) who skate at the Mite Level.  Although some hours are required as part of your association dues, I put in over and above what is required.  I am the manager of the Mites, Levels 1-4, which consist of 100+ skaters.  It involves communication, participation fee collection, registrations, etc.  I create handmade handouts for the Learn To Skate participants. I am also part of the Tournament Committee; I collect baskets for event raffles, find vendors for events and make sure the hockey rink is decorated with style 🙂 (my featured creation).

This year I donated a collection of handmade cards, mini pizza boxes and gift bags (shown above) to be part of the first basket raffle. Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of my basket before I dropped it off?  Luckily a good friend of mine was the lucky winner and she was kind enough to take a photo and thank me.  Most of the cards shown above have been posted on my blog, so feel free to check out my gallery for up-close images.

This weekend is our home Mite Jamboree called the Holiday Extravaganza (hence the sign).  We have approximately 300 skaters (400 total) coming to our rink to participate in a weekend of fun!  We have Santa making an appearance, a craft table for the kids and lots of ice time.  I will spend my day Friday at the rink decorating with Christmas Decor and a few of my handmade pieces.

The Mini Pizza Boxes and the Trim Your Stockings Thinlits Dies were the perfect addition to my holiday themed rosettes.  I LOVE ROSETTES, can you tell?

I love the Letters For You Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coordinating Large Letters Framelits.  I have used it on so many of my creations, it is just perfect for a variety of cards, scrapbook pages, and decorations.

I created 3 different sized rosettes.  The largest rosette is two 12×12 pieces of cardstock, cut in half, scored at 1/2 inch intervals and joined together (4 pieces).  The 2nd largest rosette is a 12×12 piece of cardstock, cut to 3-inch x 12-inch, scored at 1/2 inch intervals and joined together (3 pieces). The smallest rosette is a 12×12 piece of cardstock cut to 2-inch x 12-inch, scored at 1/2 inch intervals and joined together (2 pieces). All items were adhered together with a glue gun.

For the banner pieces, I cut cardstock to 2-inch x 4-inch then flagged the ends with my Banner Triple Punch. I saved the piece that was punched out and used it as the topper to my banner pieces. I added the Season of Glitz Mini Bows to the top of the banner as well.

I used the snowflake die from Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Set.  I used the Stitched Shaped Oval Die to crop Vellum to place over the top of the snowflake, then added the cropped Letters for You to create “Holiday Extravaganza).  All items were adhered with Mini Glue Dots.
