One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Where the Wild Things Grow

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for February.  We are all about plants today.  About this time we are all beginning the think that maybe possibly spring could be coming.  We want to think spring and plants whether it's close or not.  Apparently Phil saw his shadow even though it was snowing big time.  Six more weeks of winter.  But I digress.  Plants. 

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


My absolute favorite plants thing right now in the Stampin' Up! world is the Pierced Blooms dies.  These dies have such beautiful stitching on the flowers and leaves.  Here is my card for today.

In Bloom Flower & Field Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base is Bumblebee cut to 4 1/2 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  Cut an additional layer of Bumblebee 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card front.

Run some Linen Thread around the card 2 times and tape in the center of the front.

Use the Layering Squares dies 3rd largest scallop to cut a square of Shaded Spruce.  The Stitched Shapes dies 2nd largest square is used to cut a square from the bumblebee dotted paper from the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

The Pierced Blooms dies are used for the flowers.  Colors used are Shaded Spruce and Just Jade for the leaves and Basic White for the blooms.  Lay the blooms on a foam mat and press down in the center.  I used the wrong end of a retired paper piercer.  This gives some dimension to the flowers.  Glue.

Add a Linen Thread bow with a rolled up glue dot.

I'm most excited about my sampler using the dies and the Flower & Field designer paper.  Here goes!  This is a picture without the frame.  Glare, you know.

In Bloom Flowers & Field Sampler for OSAT by Jo Anne Hewins

The frame is from Ikea.  It is 9 x 9.  I must admit I haven't been to Ikea in a long time.  I guess they still sell these but I don't know.  I used the backing from one of our specialty papers and cut to 9 x 9.  The background paper is from the Flower & Field paper cut the same.

The scalloped squares are the same size as the card.  The colors used are So Saffron, Shaded Spruce, and Cherry Cobbler.  The Stitched Square is the same size as on the card.  Various patterns from Flower & Field were used.  Scalloped squares were added to the background with dimensionals after all were completed.  The squares were added to the scalloped squares with dimensionals.   All of the decor for the squares are cut with the Pierced Dies.  Use lots of dimensionals.  Use your Bone Folder and a foam mat to add dimension to the flowers and leaves.

Colors used for the flowers and leaves are Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, Basic White, Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, Bumblebee, Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, and So Saffron.

Pearl Basic Jewels were used to embellish.

To adhere I used a straight edge to measure from the diagonals and marked to find the center of the background.  I lined the background up with my grid paper to help get everything straight.

Here is a close up of each square.  The first is pretty much the same as the card.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for January Say Hello To Simply Succulent

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for January, 2021.  We are introducing some of the new products Stampin' Up! has to offer in the new Jan-June Mini and in Sale-a-Bration!  There are so many great stamps, dies, bundles, embellishments, designer paper.  Wow!  Stampin' Up! has knocked it out of the park!

Image may contain: text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

I would love to introduce you to the Simply Succulent bundle.  It is amazing!  The stamp set has great sayings with a mixed font that is just so pretty.  The Potted Succulent dies have one die that makes a large cut out background the size of the card.  There are also dies that cut out the stamps, a couple extra plants, and some for sayings.  It's a great mix.

OSAT Jan Simply Succulent by Jo Anne Hewins

For my card I started with Thick Basic White cut to 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

Cut a piece of Basic White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Cut the largest die from this piece.  After cutting I noticed that the side borders were a little wider than the top and bottom.  I wanted them all to be the same, so I trimmed each side a tiny bit.  Adhere the cut out to the card front.  To do this I pulled out the Silicone Craft Sheet.  Use a piece of a Stampin' Sponge to add the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the cut out.  Be careful not to move the cut out during this procedure or you'll have glue over the front as well as the back.  I ended up trimming the sides of the card to the same as the cut out.  It's probably 4 1/8 instead of 4 1/4.  The white on white is truly beautiful!

Stamp the pot and the largest succulent plant group on Basic White with Memento ink.  Color the pot with the Cajun Craze Combo blends.  To color the succulents use Soft Sea Foam combo, Old Olive combo, Granny Apple Green combo and the Light Rich Razzleberry blend.  Cut these pieces out with the Potted Succulents dies.  

OSAT Jan Simply Succulent Blends by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut another plant using the dies from Pear Pizzazz.

Assemble all the parts on the card with dimensionals.

OSAT Jan Simply succulent Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Add a bow of Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot.

Stamp the saying from Simply Succulents in Old Olive.  Cut out with the Potted Succulent dies.  Add a dimensional to each end and add across the pot.

OSAT Jan Simply Succulent Treat Box by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D project I used one of the Love You Always Treat Boxes found on page 11.  These boxes are so sturdy. 

Cover the box with Old Olive Designer Series Paper from the Regals 6 x 6 stack.  Cut to  4 1/8 x 5 7/8.  Add adhesive and start at the bottom of one side of the slide on lid.  Crease as you get to the corners so that everything lies flat.  The paper will cover the two sides and top but not the bottom of the box.

Wrap Linen Thread around the box twice and tape down where the saying will go.

Stamp the saying in Old Olive on white and cut out with the dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Stamp and color the smaller succulents until you have happy with how many you have and how they will look.  Add some with dimensionals and glue some.

Finish with a bow of Linen Thread added with a glue dot.

Little Treat Box Dies Santa Treat Holder

Today I have a 3D Christmas item for you.  This one uses the Little Treat Box Dies.  When I first started stamping, punch art was a big thing that I loved.  Today I have used what I'm calling Die Cut Art.  I'll explain as I go.  But first, let me say that the Little Treat Box Dies are retiring.  Here is my box.

Little Treat Box Dies Santa Die Cut Art by Jo Anne Hewins

I do have a video for this box later in this post.  For this box you'll need a piece of Real Red card stock that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Cut the box with your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  The die will cut the box and emboss the lines that you need to fold.

You will need to trim one of the arch sides.  Line up on the trimmer and cut at 1 1/4 inches.  I find it easier to use the measurements on the right side of the cut line on the trimmer.

Score the folds with your Bone Folder.  Put the tabs of the front and back so that they go to the outside.  The box sides will cover that up and it makes the inside of the box smooth.  Glue the front of the box (short side).  

Next cut a little less that 1/4 x 4 1/2 inch piece of Basic Black card stock.  Making it just a little less than 1/4 allows it to fit through the slide from the Antique Corners &b Slides Elements.  Slide it through to the middle of the black piece.  Put a glue Dot behind the slide and attach in the middle of the front.  Fold the card stock around and to the back of the box.  Attach the ends with glue dots.  Now add glue to the box and glue up the rounded side.

Punch out two circles with a regular hole punch.  Lay them each on a glue dot, and then adhere to the front of the box above the belt.

Little Treat Box Santa Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The face for Santa begins with the Layering Circles dies.  First cut a Whisper White scallop circle that is approximately 2 inches in diameter.  Now cut a circle out of Petal Pink that is around 1 1/8 inches in diameter.  Glue this circle to the white in the center but a little more to the top.

The hat is cut using the Stitched Triangles dies.  Cut from Real Red using the 3rd largest isosceles die.  Trim a little from each corner using your snips.  Figure out where you want the hat to bend and fold.  I found it easier to make a score line with my trimmer and then fold.  Use a regular hole punch to punch the ball for the end of the hat from white paper.

The trim on the hat is found in the Dino dies.  Can you believe that!  It's a die for the spikes down the back.  Cut from Whisper White.  You will need to trim the sides.  Hold up to your hat to determine exactly how big you need it.  You do want this piece to adhere above the stitched line on the hat. (I have a video).  Add the hat to the top portion of the Petal Pink face.

For the mustache, use the Poppy Moments dies.  Cut from Whisper White.  Add a punched Real Red circle behind the mustache so that it looks like a bit of mouth underneath.  Add all to the face.

Finish up with colored pearls.  These pearls were left from the old type of pearls we used to have that had some very tiny and some large pearls.  Color the eyes with a Dark Basic Black blend and the nose with the Dark Real Red Blend.  Give it several coats and allow time to dry.  Then add to the face.  

The face is added to the box with dimensionals.  It does stick up above the arch from the back.

I hope you'll try this.  It's pretty easy to make.  Add the treat of your choice.  I added Hershey Kisses, but they were a tight fit.  I got 5 in there.

Candy Cane Holder with Real Red Braided Trim by Jo Anne Hewins

This candy cane holder was cased from the August-December Mini catalog on page 42.  It's so easy to look right over the sample in the catalog.  This is a great cheap and quick little something just to say you are thinking of someone.

Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper:  green diagonal 3 x 4 1/2.

Whisper White:  3 x 4 1/2.

Measure one inch from each end of the patterned paper and make a mark.  Use this as a guide to use the Classic Label Punch.  Use Tear & Tape around the outside of the green paper and add to the white base.  Put in the candy cane.

Trimming the Town DSP:  tree paper 2 x 4

Whisper White 2 x 4, you'll also need a scrap for the snow approximately 1 x 2.  Add the two pieces together and punch one end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  Add snow.  Cut house and tree from designer paper with the Home Together dies.  Add with dimensionals.  The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Punch with Classic Label Punch and trim the ends.  Add with dimensionals.

Tie to the candy cane holder with the Real Red Braided Trim.  Curl ends of the trim using your Bone Folder.

Candy Cane Holder CASE from Aug-Dec Mini by Jo Anne Hewins

The second project uses the Mosaic Gusseted Cellophane Bags from the Annual catalog.  Fill with the treat of your choice.  Mine is Santa Hats Hershey Kisses.  The bag is tied with the Real Red Sheer Ribbon.

Snow Wonder Shaker Tag and Mosaic Gusseted Cello Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

The tag is a shaker tag made the really easy way.

Thick Whisper White:  2 pieces needed at 2 3/4 x 4 1/2, this will actually need to be a little shorter than that.  You want to be able to push the paper all the way to the end of the Clear Envelope that is found in the Annual catalog.

Stamp the snowman from Snow Wonder in Memento Black and color using the Light Real Red, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light Pool Party, Dark Granny Apple Green, and Dark Smoky Slate Blends.  Trace around the figure with the Light Pool Party and then add snowflakes using the same stamp set.  Stamp off.

Slip the card into the clear envelope and add some of the Snowflake Sequins.  I was generous.  Cut off the extra part of the bag not needed.  Pull the bag around to the back of the card and tape shut.

Now decorate the other piece of Thick Whisper White and then adhere it to the back side covering up the yucky back.

Punch a little hole and add to the bag with some twine.  I used twine from an old Paper Pumpkin kit.

NC Demo Blog Hop for November Celebrating Christmas

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for November.  We have a fun hop celebrating Christmas colors whether they are traditional or just a little quirky.  You might have just come from Tracie's blog.  Great project, right!  If you are just starting here, then I do hope that you will visit everyone!  You'll be glad you did!

Join us blog

So we are thinking about the colors that say Christmas to us.  You probably aren't surprised, but I am a traditional person.  This picture really speaks to me.

Christmas Color Combo 4

If you have been to my house, you will see so much green.  It's my favorite color.  I love a classic simplicity.  Now I've never decorated my house like this, but I would love to!  My card is also inspired by Laurie Meier.  She demonstrated a slimline  card with a slider closure recently for the group.  I adapted her card to my design.

Slim Line Slider Card by Jo Anne Hewins

If I had a magic wand, I would wish this card could give me a big hug and just envelop me.  To me it says Peace on Earth!  The returning Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is so pretty.

A slimline card fits into a regular business size envelope.  This kind of card has become popular over the last months.  I've been meaning to try one.  The card base is Thick Very Vanilla.  It is cut to 8 x 8 1/2.  Put the 8 inch side at the top and score at 2" and at 6" (2 inches from each side.)

Since this is a slider card, there needs to be a tiny space where the sides do not quite meet so there is room.  I did trim just a tiny bit to achieve this.

The Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is cut to 1 7/8 x 8 3/8.

Slim Line Slider Card Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For the slider mechanism, you'll need two pieces of Very Vanilla 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  You will also need 2 pieces of typing or thin paper paper the same size.  I used the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder for one of the vanilla papers.  Place the card stock so that the design of the folder is centered.  Score the other vanilla paper in the center at 1 3/4.  Fold the 2 pieces of typing paper in half as well.  It might be easiest to watch the video to assemble.  I think my words would probably be confusing.  Pictures speak clearly, I hope!  I'll just go ahead and add the video here.


To decorate the slider, cut 2 wreaths using the Wreath Builder dies.  One wreath is in Garden Green card stock and the other is from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  Glue these down in the center with the patterned paper on the bottom.  Off set the wreaths.  I did add some mini dimensionals under some of the leaves to make them have dimension.  

Add a bow using the Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Ribbon Pack.  I used a glue dot.  

The flower is cut using the Wreath Builders dies.  I cut two from Very Vanilla.  Punch a 1/2 inch circle of So Saffron card stock and add between the layers.  Off set the flowers.  Add the flower with a glue dot.

Add some of the Red Rhinestones!

The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp the saying in Real Red on Very Vanilla paper.  Fussy cut around the saying and clip a notch of each end.  Curl with a Bone Folder and then add to the slider with glue dots.

Wreath Builder Christmas Tag by Jo Anne Hewins

I also added a Christmas tag to match the card.  Cut Very Vanilla to 2 x 5 1/2.  Use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder again.  Make sure to center the designs.  The rest of the tag is made very similar to the card slider.

Cut the saying apart and add to the tag.  I added the pieces with glue dots.

Pair these together to make a striking ensemble.
