"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
blog.  I always LOVE Melissa's projects.  If you get lost on the hop you can always come back and you will find the list here.

Blessings,
Renee

Internet/Computer Issues........Again!

Seems like my computer problems are never ending. Had our service provider out here today and they promised me they are going to get this fixed. Something is eating our bandwidth up and they are not sure what it is. They stopped and picked up my computer and they are going to get to the bottom of our issues. I can use my phone and my iPad mini so I'm not completely off grid, but doing things on the computer is so much easier for me. Anyway I wanted to do a quick post yet tonight. My BFF Vicki came over today and we stamped. We haven't done that in so long and it was good to spend the day with her. Here is one of the cards I made.




Very simple using the Thoughtful Branches bundle.  Only availwble this month. Order yours soon.

Blessings,
Renee

"OSAT Blog Hop - Dog Days of Summer"

It's blog hopping time with the OSAT group. I know I've been a little slack in the blogging.  Lots of things going on and will update about all that in another post, but right now I need to share with you my projects for the August Hop.......Dog Days of Summer!  Dog days of summer means to me that they are long, hot, lazy days and all a person feels like doing is lying down, maybe sip a drink and just be lazy like a dog. My card gives that feel, I think.   I didn't put a sentiment on it, that may come later when I use it, but for now it's just a lazy dog day of summer card.


I used the Sitting Here stamp set along with some pieces/parts from Kinda Eclectic and Sheltering Tree.  I made my porch using the Hardwood background and punched it out with the new Classic Label Punch.  After the Word Window punch was retired I was devastated because I used that one so much, but the Classic Label is even better.  You will notice all the little details on the card......yeah they  were a little fussy, but it's the therapy of fussy that I needed at the time I was making it.  I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sun for a little pop and sponged the background with what else, but Soft Sky.  This card looks much better IRL.  I guess I need to do some adjustments to my photo area.  I need better lighting I think. 

 For my 3D project, what better than some treats for my grand puppy.  He loves his treats, but he's also just as satisfied with ice cubes.  Yes, ice cubes!  When he is here and hears the sound of the refrigerator and someone getting ice he is all over it.  I didn't think the ice cubes would work in the box though. *wink*  I added a ball that I got him while we were on vacation.  I used the SU punch board to make my box.  It is a finished size box of 4" x 4" and it so easy to make with the punch board.  I used the new Sweet & Sassy heart thinlits and also the Large Letter Framelits.  I stamped the rest of Captain's name with the new Labeler Alphabet.  This is a must have stamp set.  It's little tiny letters that are great for stamping onto cards and also scrapbooking.  It has two styles of the alphabet and you can mix and match if you prefer.  There are even duplicates of some of the commonly used letters.  The best thing is that they are photopolymer and you can see exactly where you are stamping.  The tag was made in one shot.  I ran the paw pieces through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder for some texture and stamped the box with Gorgeous Grunge.
Here is a picture of Grammy's Captain, my Captain.  This was the last time he was here in July.  His mom wanted to take him upstairs to bed and that's when he decided to jump up on Grammy and Gramp's bed.  He seemed to be saying I'll stay here mom.  I like Grammy and Gramps bed.  He is only 7 months old and such a sweetheart.  He has a lot of energy and wears me out, but we love him.  We sure miss having a dog in the house, but visits from Captain are good enough for now.  I think we're too old to start the doggy thing again and will stick to just our kitty cat.  Sabby (the kitty cat) agrees.  LOL!  He hides for the weekend when Captain and his mommy come visit.  

Well I hope you enjoyed your nice little visit here and you continue to hop onto the ever talented Wynne Grob's blog.

If you find yourself lost on the hop, you can always come back here and find the complete list of hoppers.
Blessings,
Renee
