OSAT Blog Hop - Oh My Pumpkins and Pie

Oh My Pumpkins and Pie.  It's the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop!!!  Where has the time gone?  Fall is just a crazy time for me.  I'm sort of hoping that next year may be a little different, but we shall see. I'm so glad you've decided to hop with me today.  I love Fall, so this was a great theme for me.  You may have come by the way of the talented Tina Riddle's blog, so welcome.  If you get lost on the hop you can always come back here and see the list at the bottom for the complete list of hoppers.

Now to today's projects.  I am so tickled with how these projects turned out and I can't wait to share them with you.  Here is the inspiration for my card.  

These are ceramic pumpkins that I purchased 7 years ago, while we were displaced, after our house fire.  I just needed something pretty that was mine to put in the bedroom while we stayed with my parents.  That was a hard time being displaced for seven months and not having your own stuff around you.  When I saw the theme for this month's hop I knew I wanted to use these as my inspiration.  These sit on top of my refrigerator every Fall and remind me of all that God brought us through during that time.

I wish you could see the Wink of Stella on the leave designs.  It's so sparkly.  I used the swirl behind the pumpkin from the Star of Light stamp set in the holiday catalog.  The ribbon is also from the holiday catalog.  I don't have a current Happy Thanksgiving set so I used the Labeler Alphabet to stamp the sentiment.  Our photopolymer stamps are so great for lining up easily.  The pumpkin top and the leaves are from the recently retired Thoughful Branches thinlits.  I will have a complete list on the bottom if you want to know exactly what was used.

Now for my 3D project.  I think I really outdid myself, if I do say so myself.  I've wanted to do this with the Cutie Pie thinlits from the first time I saw them and now I finally have.  What do you think?  Would you like a slice?

I hope you've enjoyed these projects.  I had a lot of fun making them to share with you.  Now hop on to my friend Andrea's blog.  She has some cute projects to share.  I know because I may have seen a peek.

"OSAT Blog Hop - Birthdays Bash!"

Hi my stamping friends!  It's the OSAT blog hop today and everyone has some awesome projects to share with you.  If you started at the beginning of the hop you may have gotten here by the way of the ever so talented Sara Levin's blog.  This month's hop is a Birthday Bash and I've got a couple of cute projects that could be used for a birthday for most anyone.  Well maybe not your dad or your hubby or any one of the manly sort, but everyone else would be a go.

I decided I wanted to use the new set I got last week called Live, Love, Grow because it has a cloche in it.  I love cloches and if you could see my house you would know that to be the truth.  There is just something about them that I've always loved.  I wasn't sure why, but when I went to California I discovered it runs in the family.  My aunt and my cousin have collections too.  Here is the one I got while I was in California.  Of course I had to pick up a couple of hedgies while I was there too. *wink*

Here is my card using the cloche.  The set doesn't have a stand so I free-handed a stand with my basic black marker and cut it out.  It was super easy and I don't think you could tell it wasn't a stamp.  I thought I'd bring out my other new stamp set Pretty Kitty to put under the cloche since I hadn't used this set yet.  I added some clear Wink of Stella to the kitty and then an enamel heart to finish it off.  Oh, and the bow was a die from the Mini Treat Bag set and the lace from the Flourish die set.

For my 3D project I wanted to keep with the same theme and colors so I made a little wrap around cover for a little paper cup that I had on hand.  I did my own measurements for this and it really was quite simple.  I used two strips of heavy weight white cardstock that measured 2" x 7-1/4".  I scored each at 2", 4-1/2" and 6".  I over lapped them in the middle and glued.  The ends were punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch that is exactly 2" wide.

You can see the Wink of Stella better on this close up shot.

Well thank you so much for stopping by and please continue onto the awesome Melissa Davies
