One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for April Say What?

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for April!  This month we are all about the sentiment.  

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

I often get all caught up in the decor of a card.  The sentiment might be of less interest.  Let's face it, though, the sentiment is the meat of the card.  It's the why!

I just got some of the new products in my Stampin' Up! preorder and I just had to try out a few things.  If you are not a demonstrator, you can't get these yet unless you decide to join in the fun.  I know this is a teaser, but I can't help it.  All is available on May 4th.  With that said, here is my card.

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Card by Jo Anne Hewins

You might recognize some, or all, of our new In Colors.  They are gorgeous!

My card base is Soft Succulent cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over the front of the card in the same color ink with the largest flower from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set.  When stamping concentrate on the edges of the card front.  If the stems appear a little wonky in the center, don't worry.  The panel will cover that.

For the panel, start by stamping the sentiment in Soft Succulent in the center of your Basic White card stock.  Now cut out with another of our new products called the Scalloped Contours dies.  I used the third one in from the outside.  It has scallops around the outside and beautiful stitching on the inside.  Add using the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  It's so easy and supports the entire panel.

To make our flowers, we'll be using the Flowers and Leaves Punch.  It coordinates with the Flowers of Friendship stamp set to make the Flowers of Friendship bundle.  For the flowers we will use 3 other new In Colors, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, and Polished Pink.  Cut a strip of each color about 1 3/4 inches side.  Stamp each flower in the same color ink.  For the larger flower, stamp with the petals in the shape of a +.  For the smaller flowers, stamp with the petals in an X.  This will help when punching.  Pleasantly I found that the punch will work no matter which petal you have at the top.  Punch multiples of each.  I used them for the front of my card, inside the card, and on my 3D item front and back.  Color in the centers of the flowers with the coordinating Dark Blend.

Place the flowers around the sentiment.  Glue these down.  I did add a few flowers sticking out from behind the panel of the card.  Sometimes I had to trim them to get them to fit.

Stamp the large and small leaves on the new Evening Evergreen in the same color.  Pay attention to how these leaves will need to face in order to punch them out.  I used thin strips of the card stock to feed through the punch.  Fit the leaves wherever you feel they belong.  When done add some dimensionals under part of flowers or leaves that extend beyond the white panel.

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  It's all the new In Colors and the Flowers of Friendship bundle.

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I used the All Dressed Up dies.  Cut 2 of the pocketbook dies in Soft Succulent.  On the large space for each side, stamp the large flower stem in Soft Succulent.

For the flowers on this project, use a Bone Folder to curl the petals.  Add each flower with glue dots.  I started with glue, but that got a little messy.  Add leaves around the flowers.  I decorated the front and the back of the purse the same.  For the front make a tag.  Stamp the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship on Basic White.  Cut out with the smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies.  Attach to the purse with glue dots.  Finish up with a bow using the Fresh Freesia In Color Ribbon.  Add with a glue dot.

I have a stash of shred in my cabinets.  They are mostly from the Dollar Tree, but some is from sales I find.  I had this color that matches the Fresh Freesia color pretty well.  My purse is empty, but just think of the things you could place inside.  Possibilities!

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Bag Side View by Jo Anne Hewins

At first I didn't think the In Colors would go well together.  Well, they do!  My projects make me think of spring!

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Bag and Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I hope you enjoyed this project and peek into our wonderful world of color coming soon!  I think you'll love the Flowers of Friendship bundle, too.  The Scalloped Contours dies are also part of a bundle.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I would love to be your demonstrator if you don't already have one.  Let me earn your business!
