OSAT Blog Hop Fresh Finds

 Welcome to the first OSAT blog hop for 2023!!!  Can you believe it's 2023? I thought that year would be a long time off since I turn 60 this year.  It just blows my mind!!!  I don't feel like I'm that old, well except or when I stand up some days.   LOL!  Anyway welcome to the hop and I hope you enjoy yourself.  Aa always the list of  the monthly hoppers and all the products used will be at the end of this post.  If you get lost at anytime you can always come back here to find out where you are at in the hop.  So let's get started!

When I saw the Love Cats stamp set, I knew I had to have this set.  I have a black Maine Coon cat named Sabby and he is just an adorable cat.  So gentle and kind and the sweetest cat I've ever had.  I started my project with the stamp set and the sweet Country Floral Lane DSP and went from there.  I then used the new Something Fancy dies to cut the kitty cat out.  The floral later is popped up on dimensionals so when I adhered the die cut piece I only put dimensionals on the right hand side of the die cut.  The black gingham ribbon (LOVE IT!) and the Iridescent Pastel Gems brings the whole thing together.  Oh and for a touch of texture I used the Painted Textures 3D die. And yes Sabby has been known to get into this similar position at times, minus the heart of course. LOL!

For my 3D project this month I pulled out a small notebook from my Dollar Tree notebook stash and kept with the same stamp set and theme.  Who doesn't love a new notebook at the beginning of a new year?!?! I just love this sheet of DSP so I covered my notebook with it and then made a book binding piece of sorts using the absolutely gorgeous Fine Shimmer 12 x 12 from the new mini catalog as well.  This paper is soooooo pretty!!!!  You'll need this paper for sure.  It comes in a pack of 6 single sided sheets with two each of Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia and Gold.  I used the Soft Succulent to pull out the Soft Succulent in the DSP.  If you'll notice closely there is a little kitty peeping from the top of this notebook. Yes, I had to make a little bookmark to match,

I sandwiched the bookmark between a piece of the DSP and a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock after using an exacto knife to cut around his tail and legs.  The next pictures will give you more of an idea how that looks.  

Well I would like to thank you for stopping by and I sure hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I did making them.

OSAT Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop


Welcome to the October 2022 OSAT Blog Hop!!!!  I know I haven't hopped for a couple months.  My health has not been the best and sometimes you just have to put yourself first.  I'm finally learning that at the age of 59-1/2.  I guess I'm a slow learner. LOL!  I'm so happy to be here this month and it's FALL!!!  I don't know about you, but fall is my favorite time of the year.  It's usually very busy for me with my business and my seasonal job, but it's still my favorite and all the colors, smells and sights for fall.  Now onto my projects.  Here's my card.
I used the Hello Harvest bundle to make both of my projects.  When I saw this bundle, I knew right away that I had to have it.  The stamp set is so pretty and the dies are just awesome!  The dies at first can throw one off, but after seeing my card you will know exactly how they are used.  The two dies to make the pumpkin are actually dies that not only cut, but emboss as well.  How cool is that?  The stem has embossing on it as well as does the tow dies I used to make this big pumpkin.  You can use one die to make a smaller pumpkin or you can use the second die and make an even bigger pumpkin.  I use my oh so favorite dies Split Card Textures for the background.  If you don't own these dies, I highly recommend that you get them.  They are so versatile and add such a pop to any project.  I then die cut some of the stamped leaves from the set and added those along with my saying that I fussy cut.  To finish off my card I added some of the Gold Festive Pearls.  You may have missed these in the holiday catalog, but you will find on the end of my post here all the supplies I used to make my projects.  You can just click on the pictures and it will take you to my store.
Up next is my 3D project.  I just purchased the Tailor Made dies (I know, what took me so long?) and I had the idea of somehow using them to make a treat package.  I searched online for something along that line and I just couldn't find what I wanted.  I wanted simple and simple is what I created.  I will upload the picture for this as well.  It's nothing fancy at all.  I took the largest tag and scored it up 1" from the bottom on two tags and I then added this piece to the tags using Tear & Tape.  If you have questions please feel free to ask.

My projects are super simple and I think even a beginner paper crafter could make these given the right tools.  You will find all that info at the bottom after the blog list.  Thanks for stopping and I hope you'll continue on to the next blog.  Enjoy your day.
