OSAT Blog Hop Down on the Farm


Welcome to the OSAT July Blog Hop!!!! Can you believe it's July already?   I know I can't.  Seems like we just finally got summer weather here in Michigan, but what could be a better theme than down on the farm.  While we are not farmers, we do live in the country and our place was once a working farm.  We are surrounded by corn in the fields this year and I love that because it helps cut down on the wind.  I knew immediately what stamp sets I wanted to use with this theme, but it took e a little time to come up with my projects, but I'm happy with how they turned out and I hope you are too.  So here we go!!!!


I actually used three stamp sets on this card.  I first chose the cow from Over the Moon set and then picked the pig from This Little Piggy and last, but not least I had to use Barn Door.  I have a list and links to all the items used at the end of this post.  I did fussy cut the cow and the pig, but I think it was worth it in this case as I was able to pop them up on Dimensionals to make them really pop. I then layered it all on our beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series paper.  This paper is so beautiful and versatile.  It can be country with the wood grain sheets or elegant and vintage with the beautiful flowered sheets.  Take a look at the sheets by clicking on the product link below.


For my 3D project, I chose one of our simple white pizza boxes and again that beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  The sheet that you cut apart and can use the individual pieces worked great on covering this box.  Wouldn't this box and its sentiment be perfect to give to someone that you care about?


I used the various words from these sets to come up with my sentiment.  The This Little Piggy set has the words attached to the images, but I quickly changed that by cutting them apart so that I can mix up the words with the different images and that's what made this so easy to do.

 

I truly hope you've enjoyed these projects as much as I enjoyed making them for you! Be sure and click on the list below to follow the hop.

OSAT Blog Hop Fabulous Florals

Welcome to the OSAT May blog hop........Fabulous Florals!!!  I'm glad you've stopped by and I hope you enjoy my projects.   I decided to mix some of the retiring along with some of the new to come in my projects.  So you'll be getting a sneak peek at the new, but also a reminder of what is leaving us.

The beautiful Petal Promenade DSP is sadly retiring.  This paper is just gorgeous!!!  I love all the shades of pink and the great designs of the special sheets as well. Don't forget I'll be listing all the products used at the end of this post.  I started with my 3D project first this time because I had this little glass candle jar that I had saved after burning the candle.  I just can't stand to throw useful things away.  I started with covering the jar with the DSP.  That in and of itself made it pretty.  I then proceeded to use the Floral Essence stamp bundle to make a flower for the front of it.  This set is so pretty and I'm sure you'll want to get your hands on it come June 4.  The bundle includes the punch for the flower that I made and the leaves are punched with our current leaf punch.  How cool is that?

You could put a number of things in this, but I chose to use it for my SU watercolor pencils.  I think adding that Vanilla Lace ribbon just finished it off.
I used the bone folder to curl the flower petals and give the flower more dimension.  The centers of the flowers are the Share What You Love artisan pearls.  These little lovelies will be retiring as well.  I will be sad to see them go.  While they are the colors of the retiring In Colors, I have found them to work with so many of the other colors. It's almost like they are chameleon like when you put them with other colors than the color they are.  I just might want to stock up on a couple packs of these and I don't usually buy retiring items as a demonstrator.
My card is pretty much like my 3D project.  I used all the same things and added the Story Label Punch for the sentiment.  I like to layer my sentiments when at all possible and that's what I did here.  I punched a label with Soft Sea Foam and cut it in two right up the middle, lengthwise.  I then adhered half to each side of the stamped white punched out piece.  It doesn't completely frame it at the top, but that's not a problem.  I use this technique quite frequently.  

Don't you just love this DSP?  Maybe I should get some extra of this too?  How about you?
Well thank you again for stopping by and I hope you will keep on hopping by clicking on the next person in the list below.

Blessings,
Renee

Floating Frame Technique

Hey there stamping friends.  I've got a new technique card for you today.  I've been busy getting things made for a vendor event on Saturday and I've been using up a lot of stuff sitting around on my desk, but I've also been sneaking in some new stuff that will be in the new catalog on June 4 as well.
This technique is called a floating frame.  I remember doing something very similar years ago when I wanted to use up bits and pieces of things.  I guess as they say there really isn't anything new, but many stampers have been making these cards lately so in true form I used what I had laying around and made my own version.


Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings,
Renee
