Free as a Bird Journal & Pillow Box Gift

Stesha Bloodhart _ Corp Blog Post_ Free As A Bird_Stampin' Up!

Hi Everyone!  Today I am sharing with you two creations with one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual catalog. I love coloring birds with a variety of coloring mediums.  The two creations below used the new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (item 149612), which is heavenly to color and fussy cut!

I decided to stick with a Crumb Cake palette and opted to use the new Pressed Petals Journal (item 149588) and the returning Kraft Pillow Boxes (item 147018) as my canvas.  Petal Pink pairs perfectly with Crumb Cake, and the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (item 149592) just so happens to have a Petal Pink design that was befitting.

My Kraft Pillow Box was wrapped with a 2 x 6 ¾” piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, adhered together with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).  I then wrapped two pieces of Very Vanilla 3/8” Scalloped Lace Trim (item 149593), facing opposite directions, and secured in place with Mini Glue Dots (item 103683). Using a Stamparatus (item 146276), I stamped all images from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set (item 149468) in Jet Black Stazōn Ink (item 101406) onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  TIP: Using the Stamparatus allows you to stamp the image multiple times (I stamped them twice) until the desired ink coverage is obtained.

I used an Aqua Painter (item 103954) and the following Classic Ink Stampin’ Pads to add color to the images:  Crumb Cake (item 147116), Early Espresso (item 147114), Pear Pizzazz (item 147104), Mossy Meadow (item 147111), Coastal Cabana (item 147097), Mango Melody (item 147093), and Calypso Coral (item 147101).  After coloring each image and allowing them to dry completely, I think snipped the images with a Paper Snips (item 103579).  I assembled and adhered them as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 104430) and Mini Glue Dots.

I rubbed a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock (item 119686) with an Embossing Buddy (item 103083), then used a Clear Block A (item 118487) to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink (item 102283).  I then covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132), flicked the cardstock to remove the excess and set it with a Heat Tool (item 129053).  I snipped it with a Paper Snips and adhere with a snipped-to-size Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (item 144108).

I then added several Gold Metallic Pearls (item 146282) to flower centers and two Bird Ballad Trinkets (item 149594) as a final touch.

My Pressed Petals Journal was adorned with so many fabulous products. First, I adhered a 3 x 5 ¼” piece of Early Espresso Cardstock to the back of a 4 x 5” Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper with Snail Adhesive. I then wrapped it with two pieces of Very Vanilla 3/8” Scalloped Lace Trim (facing opposite directions) and secured in place with Mini Glue Dots.  This adhered to the Pressed Petals Journal with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to 3 x 4” and adhered it to a 3 1/8” x 4 1/8” piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.  I added watercolor wash background using an Aqua Painter and Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.  After allowing it to dry completely, I wrapped two loops of Linen Thread on the right-hand side, securing it with a bow. I then adhered it to the journal with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cropped a piece of Vellum Cardstock (item 101856) using a die-cutting machine and the 3 ¼” wide Stitched Nested Labels Die (item 149638). I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals, strategically placed so they remained hidden behind the birds. I stamped, colored and snipped the images the same as I did with the Kraft Pillow Box (above).

I rubbed a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with an Embossing Buddy, then used a Clear Block G (item 118489) to stamp the “Enjoy Today” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp Set (item 149298) in Versamark Ink.  I then covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flicked the cardstock to remove the excess and set it with a Heat Tool.  I snipped it with a Paper Snips and adhered with Snail Adhesive.

Again, I added several Gold Metallic Pearls to flower centers and three Bird Ballad Trinkets as a final touch.

I hope I have inspired you to create little handmade gifts embellished with phenomenal Stampin’ Up! Products.

Be Inspired Blog Hop June 2019: Happy Mail

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Be Inspired Blog Hop!

This month’s theme is…..Happy Mail!  I decided to make a card for a friend that just had a baby.  I used the Wildly Happy Cling Stamp Set. 

Wildly Happy Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Baby Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Simple images that can be stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends!  

I used the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper as the background with a piece of Vellum Cardstock over the top to soften it up a wee bit more. 

I added some Glitter Enamel Dots and Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine for just the right touch. 

I snipped the elephants with a Paper Snips and cropped two “clouds” with the Pretty Label Punch. 

The line art of these images makes it easy to add color with just the right placement for shading.  I colored the elephants with Smoky Slate Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends. Easy Peasy.

Artisan Blog Hop June 2019 : Come Sail Away Suite

Come Sail Away Suite of Products by Stampin' Up! Home Decor by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Welcome to the June 2019 Artisan Blog Hop!

The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!  This blog hop will feature creations using the Come Sail Away Suite of Products from the  all-new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  

My wall art showcases the amazing elements from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.  The photo was taken several years ago on Lake Tainter, during one of our many evening cruises on the pontoon. Sunsets on the water are the best! I love that I now have a piece of wall art that reminds me of how beautiful nature can be.

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I truly want to thank you for being here!  I am so very honored.  I do my best to provide inspiration as well as step-by-step instructions to my creations so that you can make them too! 

 

Come Sail Away Suite by Stampin' Up! _ Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!(1)

The Memories & More card pack made these wall hangings a quick and easy collaboration.  The sticker elements were easy peasy to apply, I just peeled (added Stampin’ Dimensionals on some) and placed where I wanted them.  Other elements were snipped from the Memories & More cards and Designer Series Paper.   You can watch a video below showing the amazing products that are included in the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.

The Sail Away Trinkets and Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine add the perfect enhancements to a paper craft project.  They are subtle but eye-catching…does that make sense?  Lol! 

My large wall art hanging plays off the blues of the water in my photo, the color of the elements I used pairs perfectly, don’t you think?  The photo below shows the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and how it compliments the Memories & More Card Packs.  The mat below my photo is the first piece of Designer Series Paper shown on the left.  

With the small wall art hanging, I decided to play off the color tones of the wood.  Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede pair together and “Set Sail In the Direction of Your Dreams”.  A perfect sentiment snagged from the coordinating Sailing Home Stamp Set.
