Thailand Trip Achievers Blog Hop -- Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration
Sealed with Love Valentine Envelope Treat Pouch

OSAT Blog Hop -- Better Together with Love


Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  It's hard to believe that it is February already, but the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop is right on time for our monthly show-n-tell!  I am so happy and thankful for your visit today. This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from Melissa Davies's blog. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of each post.

The theme for our hop today is a "Love or Wedding" them.  In my mind, they kind of go hand-in-hand, don't you think?  I love it when my crafting projects just so happens to line up with the OSAT blog hop.  The first project (my card) is actually a spin-off from the 2nd project.  I can't wait for you to see!


Creative Tips:

  • Working with the wedding colors, the card base is Blushing Bride cardstock, measuring 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2".  Add a 1" strip of Blushing Bride Designer Series paper and adhere directly to the cardbase.
  • The piece of Marina Mist cardstock was embossed with Falling Petals textured impressions folder.  How cool is it that this folder looks more like little hearts?...perfect for a wedding or love theme.  :)  This layer was popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals before adhering to the card front.



  • The focal image is a Stitched Circle die cut and stamped randomly using one of the images from the Avant Garden stamp set in Marina Mist and Blushing Bride inks. NOTE:  You can get this stamp set for free with a $50 purchase in my store.  **squeal**
  • Love Sparkles stamp set is filled with fun sentiments...the Celebrate sentiment was inked using Archival Basic Black ink and clear embossed and heat set onto Vellum cardstock.
  • DID YOU KNOW? that you can click on any images I include related to the project to see an enlarged version?  Yep!  I do this so that you can see the details of my projects a weeee bit better. As I get older, I'm finding myself pulling out what I call my "granny glasses".  haha


Bridal Shower Letters for You Banner:  This next project was a special request from a friend whose daughter is planning a destination wedding, thus the phrase "Traveling from Miss to Mrs". I had soooo much fun creating this little gem.  One of the details provided to me before starting this project is that the wedding invitations have a world map incorporated into them.  It's a good thing I still had a couple packs of the retired Typeset Specialty Designer Series paper because those sheets with the world map on them was put to good use.  Haha!!



Creative Tips:

  • My favorite tool in the whole wide world got lots of use to create this banner...the Big Shot is amazing!  A list of dies includes the Banners Framelits, Large Letters Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, and Layering Ovals Framelits.
  • It's projects like these that I am very thankful to Stampin' Up! for our ribbons and twines come in larger quantities.  The Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon from the Falling in Love Suite in the Occasions catalog was perfect for stringing the banners.
