Sale A Brate The Occasion OSAT Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back! It’s time for the first One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop of 2018. Our theme is Sale-a-Brate the Occasion, and we’re featuring projects and products from the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

For my card set today, I used the Fruit Basket Photopolymer Bundle. I love the cute little fruit stamps with matching punches.

For my first card, I stamped the pretty bowl in Pool Party and Bermuda Bay. Then, I stamped a few pineapples above the bowl, and two more to punch out. I adhered the punched pineapples with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Have you seen the pretty sequins in the new catalog? They come in beautiful, bright colors and are already attached to glue dots for easy application. I love them! I used some Pool Party Baker’s Twine and Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched Ribbon to add more texture and complete the card.

Next, I played with the little strawberries, and stamping the basket in Bermuda Bay ink and then filling it in with strawberries.

I punched three out to adhere with dimensionals, and used Pool Party Baker’s Twine and the red washi from the Tutti-Frutti Washi Tape pack to complete this card.

Well, that is all for me today. But, please move on to the next stop on the hop at Andrea!

TGIFC136 - Color Scheme


Hello and welcome back! It's time for a color challenge this week at the TGIF Challenges blog. It's a color combo that lends itself to holiday projects, so I created a set of Christmas tags.

TGIFC136

Last week's challenge was about the ombre technique, so I decided to use that too. Did you see the projects last week? They were amazing, weren't they?

TGIFC127 - Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello and welcome back! I'm back with this week's TGIF Challenge, and it's a fun tic-tac-toe challenge. Our assignment was to select three items in a row, column or diagonally to make our project with. I chose the middle column, so I'm featuring "not a card", Designer Series Paper and Halloween.

Fancy Friday - 3D Gifting Fun!

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the September Fancy Friday Blog Hop with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team)! This month we're featuring 3D items, for gift giving and many other reasons. You're in for a creative treat, so be sure to circle all the way around the hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Susan's blog, my friend from New Zealand. Wasn't her project so cute?!

I had the idea to make some ornaments using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes in the diorama style. I used both the Hearts Come Home Bundle and the Night in Bethlehem Bundle.

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.

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!

OSAT2017

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 - Flower Power

Hello, and welcome back! It's time for the April One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop. This month our theme is "flower power", so get ready to see bunches of pretty projects. (See what I did there?!)

OSAT2017

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.
