OSAT Blog Hop On the Red Carpet

Welcome to my blog and the OSAT blog hop.  This time of year is so exciting!  New products coming and we are giving you a sneak peak at some of them.  My order of new catalog items hasn't come yet, but I do have the awesome Love What You Do suite that is available to everyone this month.  I am totally in love with this sweet.  I've chosen to use a couple of the returning In Colors that will be in the regular line. So without more explanation I will just get to sharing my projects.  Up first on the Red Carpet is...................................My card!

 I used the beautiful embossing folder as my focal point on this card and highlighted it with sponge daubers and inks.  I used the DSP in this sweet as well as our old/new In Colors Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaroon and Mossy Meadow.  I know, can you believe they brought those back?  I am absolutely thrilled and so are a lot of my customers.
I had to use the lace ribbon that carried over on the bottom of this card because I just think it goes so well with this suite.

I was at a loss what to do for my 3D project, but if you've followed me long enough you know that frames are one of my favorite things to make.  I happened to have this frame set sitting on my desk from a recent Dollar Tree visit.  I loved that there were two frames hinged together.  I'm thinking the small frame would work great for a photo, but I didn't have one on hand to use.  I think I will take a picture with my class ladies and put it in there, but for now stamping the flower from the stamp set works.  I'm sorry the flowers look so dark because they really aren't in real life.  I cut the flowers in the big frame from the DSP and attached them with dimensionals and added some of the beautiful new colored pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you will continue on with the rest of the hop to see some amazing projects.

OSAT Blog Hop Pocket Full of Posies

Welcome to my page and the OSAT April blog hop.....................Pocket Full of Posies!!!  I knew what set I wanted to use for this months hop because it's a set I haven't used in ages and I was very worried it was going to retire on me so I thought I'd use it.  Then the retirement list came out and it made the cut.  Yay!!!!  I wanted to use Flirty Flamingo since it would be retiring and lo and behold they are adding Flirty Flamingo into our regular core colors in the color revamp.  Yay!!!! again!!!!!  So let's get to looking at my projects.  I won't go into a lot of detail since I think most of it is pretty much self explanatory, but if you have questions even after looking at the list of supplies at the end please feel free to contact me.  You can always do that by looking in the sidebars of my blog or header info on my Stampin'Up website.

Don't you just love the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP?  There are so many beautiful patterns in that paper

This little box could hold some jewelry, a gift card or any small gift and the box will give it a big wow!

OSAT Don't Go Breaking My Heart Blog

Welcome to my blog and the OSAT Don't Go Breaking My Heart blog hop!  I must admit that I haven't really been in my stamp room in the last couple of weeks so this hop helped me to do just that. I've been struggling with a Baker's cyst behind my knee and for a week I was actually in a brace and was on the couch for one week and then it's been an on and off thing with it.  I'm seeking a second opinion with a ortho surgeon before I have physical therapy.  Anyway it's all been very discouraging since my stamp room is in my basement and I haven't been able to navigate the stairs too well.  I was happy to get back to the stamps, ink and paper and it was my first chance at using some new product from the Occasions catalog.  I didn't realize how nice this Painted with Love Specialty DSP was.  The hardest part about using it was which piece to choose first.  I love the gold accents on this DSP and the heavier weight.
On both my projects I chose to use the Sure Do Love You bundle on page 19 of the Occasions catalog.  On the card I wanted to add some texture so I ran the hearts I cut with the framelits through a couple of different embossing folders.  I also used the Simple Stripes embossing folder for the the base of the card.  To finish it off I used the Love mini tinsel trim.  I can tell you that I am in love with this stuff.  I'm already on my second rolls of this shiny trim.  As a side note I already had a Powder Pink heart that was cut out and I decided I wanted to stamp the words so I pulled out my new handy dandy Stamperatus tool.  Yes, I was one of the fortunate ones to have been part of the demonstrator team that brought this tool to market so I was able to purchase and receive mine early.  Believe me you are going to love it when you can order and get your hands on one.  It will be available in the next catalog.  I stamped the words perfectly on that heart.  No more wasting time and paper trying to get that perfect placement that some stamps can require.

I made this cute candy box using the Lots of Love Box Framelits.  It was super simple to make and I cute the cardstock and DSP all in one fell swoop so my hearts lined up.  I covered the inside of the heart with acetate so that the candy stays in.  Wouldn't this be a cute way of giving a treat to a friend, family member or even a co-worker?  I will list all the products I used at the bottom of this post for you.

Please be sure to take the rest of the hop by clicking on the person's name after mine in the blog roll below.  I know there are going to be some amazing projects.
