Facebook Live for 4.21.2021 Bag and Card Featuring True Love Designer Series Paper

Hello!  For my Facebook Live this past Wednesday, I used the True Love Designer Series Paper.  I love designer paper, but I don't always use it.  I love black and white so I bought 2 packs of the True Love paper.  Since I haven't had in person classes until recently, I just haven't used my paper.  I bet some of you also have a lot of designer paper.  We'll make a tri-fold card and a bag today.

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.

OSAT Flowers of Friendship Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

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!

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Three Cheers

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for March.  The theme this month is Three Cheers as we celebrate birthdays.  Everybody has one and it's a great time to celebrate!  

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

It seems so strange, but I got so bogged down designing a card for today.  Birthdays.  It's like the range was just too broad.  I was overwhelmed.  There's a lot going on right now.  I'm going to be a new grandmother within the next week.  It's hard to concentrate.  Enter the man from UPS with a box for me from Stampin' Up!  I have a new stamp set.  Let's use it!  My new set is called Hot Dog.  It's on page 72 of the Jan-June Mini.  I think it's the last new stamp set offered before they to into a review.  Don't miss it.  Dogs and birthdays and so we give them cheers!

OSAT Hot Dog by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Real Red cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I'm using the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper for my card front.  Cut it at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Make sure to pay attention to the orientation of the paper.  Glue to the front.

The next panel is Real Red and measures 4 3/4 x 3 5/8.  The Basic White layer is 4 5/8 x 3 1/2.

I was able to stamp the 3 dogs together using masking.  Stamp the sitting dog in the center first in Memento Black.  Stamp the dog on a sticky note making sure you are using the sticky area.  Cut this out on the line.  Place the cut out over the dog just stamped.  Now stamp the other two dogs. 

To stamp the balloons, make a mask of the heads of the other two dogs.  Add these and stamp.  Stamp again on the stripe designer paper from Playful Pets.  Cut around these and glue to the balloons.

There was just enough room to stamp the saying between two balloons.

To color the dogs, I googled dachshund.  I found the colors I used so I hope the dogs are OK.  I used Cajun Craze combo, Smoky Slate combo, Crumb Cake combo, and Real Red for the collar.

The dog prints are in Memento Black.

Mount the layer on dimensionals.  Add a little of the Real Red ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

OSAT Hot Dog Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp a dog and cut it in half.  Add to each end of the saying.  The hearts were punched with the Dog Builder Punch.

OSAT Hot Dog Treat Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I used the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags.  I didn't realize they were in the catalog.  I need to use these!  I cut a strip of the designer paper 2 7/8 x 12.  Take the bag and flatten the bottom.  If you tape the seam at the bottom flat, it helps with that.  Fold the DSP at 2 inches.  That part goes on the bottom of the bag.  Trim the designer paper even with the top of the bag.  Fill with dog bones.  Straighten the top and staple shut.  Fold down twice about 1/2 inch.  secure with glue dots.  Tie both ribbons from the Playful Pets Trim Combo into a bow.

The tag is a piece of Basic White card stock a little less that 2 inches x 4 1/4.  Cut a piece of the red stripe designer paper the same size and glue together.  Punch one end with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  Stamp a dog on white scrap and color.  Add to the tag with dimensionals.  Stamp dog prints.  Stamp the sayings and trim around them.  Add with dimensionals.  Tie to the bag.

I think I'm going to love the Hot Dog stamp set!  I'm so glad it was delivered right when I needed some inspiration!

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.
