OSAT Blog Hop Welcome to Our Hoilday

Welcome to the OSAT September blog hop!!!  It’s time to say welcome to our Holiday catalog.  Demonstrators have been using products for a month now and it’s time to share with you all. I think this catalog is s stellar on for sure. So many awesome bundles, DSP, tools and so much more.  I chose to pretty much case the card in the catalog because I just loved it. Having a hard time coming up with ideas or feel a little overwhelmed with a set you love, but not sure where to start?  Start with the catalog and that’s what I did here with a few changes.

The dies in this set are “da bomb”!  They not only cut out the leaves, but they emboss at the same time.  You can even use a spritzer and spritz a little water before running through and you get an even deeper impression.  I chose to color in the stamped leaf using our Watercolor pencils and a blender pen.  The large rectangle piece of DSP is popped up with dimensional so this card has lots of texture and dimension. 

For my 3D project I chose to make a little ornament or it could be used as a gift tag.
I cut out several leaves and then had the idea to sponge color onto the die and then cut it out. Can you see the ink on the Crushed Curry leaves?  Such a cool thing!  I put the leaves behind one of the elements from the Tags & Feathers elements. After the leaves were attached to the back of it, I cut out a 2” circle using the layering circle dies to give the back a clean look. I tried stamping the words on the element and could not get a clean stamp. I’m not sure if it was due to the humidity or what so I chose instead to stamp on cardstock and cut it out and pop it up with dimensionals.  

Well thank you for hopping with me and please click on the next name and continue hopping along for some great projects from the Holiday catalog.

Fall is Really in the Air

Fall is certainly in the air today and tonight it’s cool, but it’s still nice to sleep with the windows open. I’ve got another Gathered Together car to share with you.  Similar to yesterday’s, but a little different.

This one I used the new Delicata Copper ink pad on the large leaf. This ink has such a shimmer to it. The picture just doesn’t do it justice.   I have a confession here. I used one of the leaf trinkets on this card and it’s only the second time I’ve used one. Yes, I’ve had them since last year and I’ve been hoarding, but I’m hoarding no more. You’ve heard it here!  Lol!

I thought I’d leave you with a picture of my mantel that I decorated this afternoon.

Can you spy the item that I used Stampin’Up! on?  I had fun decorating this mantel. My daddy made me this almost two years ago. It is above our television since we don’t have a fireplace.  I love being able to change it out for the seasons or holidays or whenever I feel like it. I look at the things I put on it and remember and think about the things that have come from my family and friends. The lantern was from my sister Chele and BIL, Rick. The Fall sign is from my girl Lindsay and the turkey from my bff Vicki. Do you see my crow?  Don’t ask my why, but I’ve been wanting a crow like this for a couple of years now and found it at Hobby Lobby when I visited Linds a couple weeks back. I think he looks cute by the sunflowers, don’t you?

Well it’s time for bed. I know most of you won’t read this until tomorrow so I hope you are having a good Monday!

A Fall Saturday

Just a quick post here. I made this card today and wanted to share.  I love all things Fall, except my seasonal job, but then again I do like the money that brings for the season. 😉

 This Come to Gather suite is a beautiful Fall suite. I’ll be sharing more of this suite in the coming days or at least I hope to.  I think some changes have been done with Blogspot and I’m finally able to upload pictures or at least today. Lol!
