Well it's time for the April OSAT Hop! Can you believe it? I know for me time has gotten away on me. I've had a terrible Fibromyalgia flare up, a flooded office/stamp room, my husband, Frank had a cousin pass away and I had a cousin and an aunt pass away all in the last couple of weeks. It's been a bit overwhelming to say the least, but I am so glad to be back in my office and creating. The weather is looking better too as we've had snow still. That becomes such an ugly word in April. Well let's get rid of the ugly and show some pretty. I used one of my favorite stamp sets in the Occasions catalog. It's called Birthday Blooms.
Can you pick out the Tic Tac Toe items I used on this card? The items are LACE, GLITTER PEN,
Hopefully you can see the Wink of Stella in this close up pic. It's so hard to capture in a photo, but in person Wink of Stella is beautiful and really adds to a project because it is so shiny and glittery. I stamped the big bloom twice and cut one out to layer on top with Stampin'Up! dimensionals to give it whatelse? Dimension of course. I used Stampin'Write markers to color in the image.
Here is my 3D project. I decided on a frame since I have so many that I've purchased and somehow I
never seem to use them up. I love frames and I love the saying I used on this one. The saying if from
the set Hello Life. I've embossed it in black on the Birthday Bouquet DSP. The image was fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals as well. Can you guess the Tic Tac Toe that I use on this one? I used RIBBON, GLITTER AND DOTS. I know technically I used the Wink of Stella, but it's still glitter. I
attached the ribbon with glue dots and added a Blossom Accents in the middle of the bow. I used
glue dots on my ribbon tails to get them to drape like I wanted them to. I think this would make a nice gift and a great reminder to the recipient to do more of what makes them happy.
