One Stamp At a Time

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.

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.

OSAT Blog Hop -- All About Men

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop, where it's all about the men. You'll see lots of projects for males of all ages, so make sure you circle all the way around the hop. You might have just arrived from Rick's blog, so welcome!

I ordered some new sets from the Stampin' Up catalog, but they were full of flowers, gemstones and other things that don't fit our theme! So, I chose to use the Happy Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set again, which made it into the new catalog from the Occasions Catalog.

OSAT Blog Hop - Clean and Simple

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the May One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop, and our theme this month is "clean and simple". You might have just arrived from Jennifer Hill, and I know you enjoyed her amazing projects.

I decided to make a set of cards today, and used the lovely Chase Your Dreams Stamp Set. The images of the buildings in this set are beautifully illustrated, so I thought they would be perfect suited for our clean and simple theme.

I decided to use the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set, but to use the smaller flower and the stem of leaves. I've made a card and a gift bag to share today.

OSAT Blog Hop - Birthday Bash

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop. This month's theme is birthday bash. Everyone can use more cards and other items to help celebrate birthdays, right?

OSAT2017

I decided to ink up a set that I've had sitting around for a while called Sweet Cupcake. I picked a sweet spring color combination, and made a card and small gift box.

OSAT Blog Hop - No Rules New Year

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm back with the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop. Our theme this month is No Rules New Year. I decided to share some more of my samples from the Oh So Succulent stamp set from the new Stampin' Up Occasions catalog. This is so versatile!

I'll start with a Mother's Day card. It's never to early to start creating for upcoming occasions, right? I stamped the various plant images in Archival Basic Black ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock, and then watercolored them with Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay, a little bit of Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive and Tip Top Taupe. Since some of the images are so small, it doesn't take very much ink to color them. I love the different color variations that watercolor gives though. The back 4 images were stamped onto a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock to add more depth. The card base is Mint Macaron and the layer for the flower panel is Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock.

Hello and welcome back! I'm back again with our One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop. This month our theme is Let It Snow, so you're sure to see many great ideas for the upcoming holidays! I made two cards and two gift cards using the Stitched with Cheer and Festive Season Stamp Sets. I also used the Softly Falling and Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

OSAT Blog Hop - Dog Days of Summer

Hello and welcome back! Today is our monthly One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop, and our theme this month is the Dog Days of Summer! I think some on the hop will also share some ideas for Back to School projects, so you'll have lots of interesting things to see. I went with the summer theme, and inked up a new set I have called Pop of Paradise. I colored the pineapples with a few different colors of yellow and green markers, spritzed them with water and then stamped. This gives the fruit lots of variations in color, and it gives the card more interest I think.
