Welcome to the OSAT, One Stamp at a Time, Blog Hop for April. We are celebrating Spring! I'm Jo Anne Hewins from the USA. I'm so happy you are here!
Spring is finally here. Seems like it's been a long time coming! This is a wonderful time of year even though we have lots of pollen, I'll take the warmer weather!
This is the perfect time to pull out the Daisy Punch! I'm going to start with my 3D project this time.
I admit that I made these daisies for another project and I had some left over. I thought they made a perfect frame for spring. Each daisy has three layers of Whisper White. Use your Bone Folder to curl the petals. I curled the petals of two layers up and one layer down. The sandwich is layer down, layer up, layer down. I used glue dots between each layer. Don't be afraid to play around with the petals and get them the way you want them. The center of the flowers is punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.
This frame came from Michaels. It is 6 x 6. The background paper is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper in Balmy Blue. Add the daisies with dimensionals. The stems are a 1/8" wide strip of Mint Macaron from the same paper stack. Add the Foam Adhesive Strips to the back. The leaves are punched out with the Lemon Builder Punch. Add with a glue dot at the base and a mini dimensional out at the tip.
The Well Written Framelits were used to make the word spring. I did have to piece together several words. I got the s and p from the word sympathy, the g from the word groom, and the ri and n from the word friend. Just cut the letters apart and then put them together for the word spring. I used Shaded Spruce cardstock for this. The Time comes from the stamp set Happy Birthday, Gorgeous. Cut this out with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Hint: Keep up with the dot from the i.
Here is the card that accompanies my frame. The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11. Score this at 5 1/2 and fold.
The front of the card is covered with Balmy Blue paper from the Subtles paper that is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Add a daisy to the card. The stem and leaves are made the same as in the frame. No foam adhesive was used here.
The word friend is from the Well Written Framelits.
I think these make a cute pair!
Thank you for taking the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop. I hope you will continue to see all of the projects for spring! Again, I'm Jo Anne Hewins.
