OSAT May Clean and Simple Blog Hop

Hey there!  It's that time again for the OSAT blog hop.  This month's theme is clean and simple.  I knew what I wanted to make, but wasn't sure what stamp set I'd use.  Well lo and behold my new catalog preorder came a day earlier than was scheduled so I had to use my new goodies.  I hope you like my projects.

I've always liked the idea of making a border by hand and that was the first card I knew I wanted to make.  Then I got the idea that maybe I should make a set of clean and simple cards, so that is what I did and made a quick and easy holder for them as my 3D project.  I'm sorry I won't be able to link to any of the products because they won't be for sale until the debut of the new catalog on June1.  All products or than the butterfly embossing folder and the envelope punch board (holder) are sneak peek items.

The new SU In Colors are beautiful and there are some great new products coming so please stay tuned.  Click on the next button below and you will be taken to the wonderful blog of Wynne Grob

Blessings and enjoy the hop!

OSAT April Flower Power Blog Hop

Welcome to the OSAT April blog hop.  Our theme this month is Flower Power.  I decided to use my favorite set Oh So Succulent.  This set is unfortunately on the Stampin'Up! retirement list.  I'm so sad.  I love this stamp set and the matching framelits.  This will for sure stay in my private collection even though I can't demo it past May.  If you haven't gotten this set be sure to do so before they are gone for good.

Now onto my projects. I chose to use various images from the stamp set to make my own background paper for my card. This is always a fun technique.  You can take a full sheet of cardstock and stamp till your heart's content or until you think it looks just right.  Yeah, sometimes you can go a little overboard if you don't stop yourself.  LOL!  I like to pick it up after I've stamped a few images just to see what it looks like.  I chose our current in colors for this project.  I have them listed on the bottom of this post.  I went for a very simple design and layout.  Sometimes I see such awesome works of art when it comes to cards, but realistically I think when people need to mass produce cards or only have a limited time to stamp they want some quick, simple, cute ideas and I think this card fits the bill.

For my 3D project I actually started out with some flowers that I had previously die cut awhile ago.  I started layering them and before I glued them down I took my Wink of Stella pen and went to town on them.  If you haven't guessed by now I'm a shiny girl.  I like sparkles.  After that I started to glue them down.  Once they were glued down I realized it needed something in the middle so I pulled out the Falling in Love embellishments and added one to the middle.  Then it was like ok, I have a flower, whatever shall I do with it and then I spied a package of 4" gold paperclips I had picked up with the intention of making something with them. I hot glued the flower to the paperclip and on the back to cover up the glue I used a 1-3/4" circle.  I then glue on the loops of the 1/4" very vanilla satin ribbon and added another circle to finish it off.  I didn't photograph the back so if you'd like to see that please let me know and I can post a pic of the back.  This will make a great bookmark or you can use it as a regular paper clip to keep organized in a pretty way.

I seem to always have a hard time photographing the Wink of Stella, but I think this time it turned out pretty good.

Well thanks folks for hopping along with the OSAT blog hoppers.  I hope you've enjoyed the hop.  You can click on the next button to go to Jennifer Hills blog

"OSAT Blog Hop – Birthday Bash”

Welcome blog hoppers!  It's that time again.  Time for the OSAT blog hop and what could be a better theme than birthdays?  Yeah, my birthday is this month.  I like to affectionately call this the month of me. 😀  I think that everyone's birthday month should be all about them,  So I was happy for this month's hop.  My 3D project this month is actually something I've been wanting to make in like forever and I'm super happy with how it turned out.  I hope you like it.

I purchased the Succulent Bundle and I'm now just getting around to using it. Winter is not my friend and I haven't been feeling the best.  Won't go into all that, but I'm glad I was able to finally play with this bundle.  It has so many possibilities.  It has a lot of Clear Wink of Stella on it.  Have you tried Wink of Stella?  It is one of the best things ever.  Gives you glitter without the mess. It is hard to photograph and I apologize for that.  These look more like flowers, but you will see in my 3D project that they can be succulents as well.

Now onto my 3D piece.  I bought some frames that my dad had made that he put in our garage sale a couple of years ago.  Yes, I did say bought.  That's for you dad in case you are reading this.  He likes to tease us about how we come "shopping" at their house, but I really did pay him for them when we divided up the cash.  There we got that taken care of. 😆  Well they sat in the basement for a year after that, then the following year I painted them, but still didn't get anything made with them and then this past Fall, Frank put the chicken wire on them for me and TADA!!!!

I am so happy with how it turned out.  I knew what I wanted to do, but it took me awhile from the conception in my head.  I'm sure I'm the only one that this happens to.  😉

Yes there is Clear Wink of Stella on these.  I so wish it photography better.  I sponged the succulents with Sweet Sugar Plum and that didn't seem to be enough so I added some Old Olive.  I hot glued them to the frame that I had sanded a bit to make it a little distressed. Oh and then I glued some Spanish moss around them to finish it off.

Here is a close up of the banner pieces.  I used the 1-1/2" space on the banner punch for the Emerald Envy back layer and then I ran it through the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Embossing folder.  The top layer was stamped using the Beautiful Banner stamp set (I got this specifically in mind for this project) and then the letters were stamped with the Layered Letters set.  They were stamped with Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.  I will have the list of all products used on the bottom of this post if you are interested.  

Well I hope you've enjoyed my projects and will continue on around the hop to see what everyone else has come up with.  Oh and by the way.............Happy Birthday to me!!!!  Yes, I do think my birthday should be a national holiday.  My mom always made our (me and my two sisters) birthdays so special that I've always liked my birthday.  While I know some don't like to celebrate their birthdays it sure beats the alternative. 😉
