OSAT Blog Hop — Creature Comforts with an Animal Outing Expedition



Hello-Hello stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my blog!  I'm so excited for you to hop along the July One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  This month's theme is "Creature Comforts"., what does that mean?  Well, I took it for the word "creature" and pulled out my Animal Outing stamp set and coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits dies.  That works, right?!!  Well, let's check it out.

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.


I've been seeing this layout and technique a lot throughout the internet world, but I've only seen it with two raised panels, not three!!  Of course, I had to do something different and outside the box.  I took one look at those gators giving each other the googlie eyes that I couldn't help but pair them up with the "wild about you" sentiment!


These adorable gators come from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  And, if you haven't heard, there is an awesome sale going on right now...Buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper, Get 1 FREE!!  Guess what?!!  Animal Expedition Designer Series paper is part of this promotion!  YAY!


Two of the colors of cardstock that coordinate with the Animal Expedition paper pack are Call Me Clover and Poppy Parade, which have been embossed with two different embossing folders...Petal Burst and Layered Leaves Dynamic Texture Impressions folder.  They were lined with the new Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon to add a little fun compliment.  Add Stampin' Dimensionals to these layers and set into place leaving space for the fun patterns of designer series paper.  CUTE!!

Animal Outing Pencil Sleeve

I found some pencils at the Dollar Tree that, in my opinion, really matched up well with our Lemon Lime, I bought them!  Haha!!  I thought it would be kind of fun to create a little sleeve holder made from one of the patterned sheets of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to hold them. 


With school starting back up in our area in about 4-5 weeks, I think these would be wonderful meet-n-greet teacher gifts.  Who can resist that cute little gator and bird?  Too cute!



At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next OSAT designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
