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.

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 - 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.

Oh So Succulent Projects

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a couple of additional projects made with the Oh So Succulent stamp set. When I first received this set, I spent some time looking through the main catalog for items to use as containers for the plant images. This was one of my favorite projects using my favorite container discovery! To start, I stamped the plant image with black ink onto a Petite Cafe Gift Bag. Next, I cut banners from Sahara Sand Cardstock and Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (the gold polka-dots), and a piece of the white Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon from the Combo Pack. I stamped the plants in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmer White Cardstock. Next, I inked the solid plant image with Mint Macaron with some Bermuda Bay in the center (from a marker), spritzed with water and then stamped over the outlines. I hand-trimmed the plants since I didn't have the die set when I made this sample.
