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.

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.

OSAT Blog Hop - Shabby Chic

Hello there! I'm back again today with our next One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! This month's theme is Shabby Chic! After doing a Pinterest search, I decided to work with the new Jar of Love Bundle from Stampin' Up! I couldn't wait to get this set, and I'm sure you'll be seeing more creations made with it in the near future around here.

OSAT Blog Hop - May Flowers

Hello and welcome back! I'm back today with the monthly One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop. Our theme this month is May Flowers. Hopefully you're not sick of flower projects yet! But it is spring, so you're probably going to see a few more around here. I have had the Grateful Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Blossom Bunch Punch since last November, and I still hadn't used either of them on a project. So, I pulled them out and decided to show them some crafty love. I've got 3 different cards, and a small gift box to share with you.
