OSAT Blog Hop - Throwback Thursday

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop, and our theme this month is Throwback Thursday! Our assignment was to take a past project, and rework it with current stamps and products.

OSAT2017

I decided to rework a card set that I shared in this post. Only, this time I'm using the Painted Harvest stamp set. I can't seem to get enough of these sunflowers lately!

I cut three panels of Very Vanilla Cardstock, and then started stamp the sunflowers. The bottom layer is Daffodil Delight. Then second layer is stamped in both Crushed Curry and then Peekaboo Peach. The flower center was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, and then again with just the outer edges inked in Peekaboo Peach. The seeds in the center were stamped in Tangerine Tango. I love this color combo for the flower!

I also stamped the small dot cluster in Versamark, and then heat embossed it in Copper. The greeting is stamped in Tangerine Tango, and some copper sequins and Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon complete the card.

I flipped the card from the original set upside down, so I could place the sunflowers on stems. I started with the three base sunflowers. Then, I stamped two more, cut them out and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals. I actually used the bottom of dragonfly body from the Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set for the stems. I had to stamp it twice for the longest stem.

For this card I used Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and a piece of the Peekaboo Peach Baker's Twine to complete this card.

I love this last card, because it has some more "white space".

I used the Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine and more copper sequins to complete this one.

TGIFC118 - Technique Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another TGIF Challenge, this time featuring the emboss resist technique! There are so many ways to use this technique. After you heat emboss, you can watercolor, sponge or spray your ink over the image, which will resist the ink!

TGIFC118

I chose to watercolor over my heat embossed greetings. I stamped them in Versamark ink, and heat embossed them with clear powder onto Watercolor Paper. I wet the watercolor paper with plain water first, and then colored over it with each of the ink colors (Berry Burst, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango and Lemon Lime Twist) using an Aqua Painter. After doing this, the greetings stay white!

OSAT Blog Hop - Very Vintage

Hello and welcome back! It's July...how did that happen? That means it's time for another One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop, and our theme this month is Very Vintage.

OSAT2017

I have to say that vintage style is not my forte. I used to make more cards in this style, but most of the sets I used have retired! I did pull out a stamp set and dies that I hadn't used yet, so that's a bonus. I pulled out the Best Birds Stamp Set and the Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies for my card and gift bag/tag today.
