Sweetest Thing Card and Candy Jar Decor

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Hi Everyone!  Today I am hoping to inspire you to give your Aqua Painters (item 103954) a bit of a workout!  It is one of the most used tools in my craft room and I hope to motivate you to give yours a try.

Shimmery White Cardstock (item 101910) is the perfect receptor of color from an Aqua Painter. My card base is a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2” x 11” Thick Cardstock (item 140272) cut with the Stampin’ Trimmer (item 126889) to 5 ½” wide x 8 ½” tall, then scored at 4 ¼”, resulting in a card that is perfectly sized to fit a Whisper White Medium Envelope (item 107301).

Use the Big Shot (item 143263), Big Shot Embossing Mat (item 146327), and largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die (item 148551) to create a sandwich to emboss a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and trim to size. Use the large brush tip Aqua Painter to wet the cardstock, first with water, and then with the following Classic Ink Colors: Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147098), Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147052), and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 147087).  Tip: Squeeze your Stampin’ Pad together to transfer ink to the inside cover, which can then be used as your palette to grab color with an Aqua Painter. Allow the cardstock to dry completely, gently bend as needed to return to shape and adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430).

Use a Clear Block D (item 118485) for the jar images & a Clear Block B (item 117147) for the lollipop image from the Sweetest Thing Stamp Set (item 148575). Use 2nd generation stamping (stamp off on scratch paper) to stamp Smoky Slate Classic Ink (item 147113) onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies (item 148524), a Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform (item 130658).

Use the medium brush Aqua Painter to add Pacific Point Ink to jars, starting with color on the left side and slowly spreading it to the right.  Allow to dry slightly and then add more color as needed until you get the desired result.   Add color to the lollipops using the medium brush Aqua Painter and the same colors as the 2nd layer (Pacific Point, Flirty Flamingo, & Crushed Curry).

A Paper Snips (item 103579) works well to remove the muslin and separate the top of the jar (center).  Adhere the newly separated top to the side of the jar with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (item 144108).  You now have an open jar to add your lollipops.

Use the Big Shot to crop a piece of Vellum 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock (item 101856) with the second-largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. Adhere all jars and lollipops to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink (item 102283) onto Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045) that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy (item 103083).  Cover the sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool (item 129053).  Trim closely with a Stampin’ Trimmer and flag the end with a Paper Snips.  Adhere to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the vellum to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals that are hidden behind the jars and sentiment.  Add some Gray Granite Best Route Enamel Shapes (item 146900) for an added touch.

Sweetest Thing Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card and Candy Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

A perfect way to step-up or decorate a jar is by adding a colorful rosette to the front of it.  To create the rosettes, start with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 5” wide.  Add the colors with an Aqua Painter (same steps as the card) and allow to dry completely. Cut six 1 ¼” x 5” strips.  Use a Simply Scored (item 122334) tool to score every ¼”. Fold the score lines, alternating directions every fold. Adhere the ends of two strips together with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).  Form into a rosette and glue together with a hot glue gun Note: 6 strips creates three rosettes.

Crop three pieces of Vellum Cardstock using the Starburst Punch (item 143717). Use the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies (item 141488) to crop the banner from the colored Shimmery White Cardstock.  Adhere the banner to the vellum starburst with Mini Glue Dots (item 103683).  Adhere to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Create the jars, label, and sentiments in the same way as the card (steps listed above) and adhere together and to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine (item 124262) or similar to the jar topper.

I hope I have inspired you to give that Aqua Painter a try!  It does take a little bit of practice, but I feel the results are well worth it!

Best Catch… Happy For You, Dad Masculine Card

Best Catch Bundle by Stampin' Up! Masculine Happy For You Dad Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Best Catch Cling Bundle!

With Father’s Day on the horizon, I decided to create a masculine card with the Best Catch Cling Bundle and coordinating Crackle Paint background stamp. Pair it up with Crumb Cake Cardstock and Soft Suede Classic Ink and you have the recipe for a fabulous masculine creation.  

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies work wonders to create frame elements and more to step-up your paper craft creations.  Do you have them in your stash of craft supplies?

 

Buy the Best Catch Bundle from My Online Store, Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #steshabloodhart #stampinhoot
Best Catch Bundle by Stampin' Up! Masculine Happy For You Dad Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. Crinkle the corners and edges with your fingers or a Bone Folder.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Crackle Paint Background Stamp in Soft Suede Ink onto a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Zip through the Big Shot with the Magnetic Platform and 2nd largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. Adhere the interior cropped rectangle to the Soft Suede with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  4. Crinkle a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2″ piece of Vellum Cardstock and adhere with Mini Glue Dots. 
  5. Take the exterior cropped rectangle, snip and reduce the size by 1/2″. Crinkle and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  6. Stamp the trout, fisherman, and sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform.  Color with Watercolor Pencils and blend with a Blender Pen. Snip the sentiment to size with a Paper Snips. 
  7. Crop the “happy” sentiment using a Big Shot, Well Written Framelits, and Mossy Meadow Cardstock. Crop the cattail using a Big Shot, Catch of the Day Die and Soft Suede Cardstock. 
  8. Snip piece of Linen and Old Olive Linen Thread with a Paper Snips.  Adhere all elements as shown with Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots. and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The images that are a part of the Best Catch Bundle are perfect for coloring with Watercolor Pencils and blending with Blender Pens. I may have overdid it on the card stock crinkle but I couldn’t help myself. The 2nd layer of Soft Suede Cardstock, the Crackle Paint Frame, and the Vellum Cardstock all received a crush in my hand to create a distressed look to match the distress of the crackle paint.
