OSAT Blog Hop — Silver Bells and Sea Shells

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  My name is Lori Mueller ( and I want to welcome to my blog and the October One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  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.


This month's theme is "Silver Bells and Sea Shells".  I'm not quite sure if the thought behind it is geared towards the ringing bells and destination weddings on a beautiful beach or if the direction was related to winter and the upcoming Christmas holiday.  It's funny how one theme can have more than one interpretation.


The way I look at it, my card doesn't reflect either one of those ideas.  Crazy, but I'm liking it.  I looked through all of the colors in the Stampin' Up! color families and decided to go with Poppy Parade simply because I haven't used it in a really long time.


There's a new stamp set and Thinlits die set in town!  WOOT!  The sentiment comes from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and the larger snowflakes are part of a huge lot of thinlits called Snowfall Thinlits Dies.  There are 20 different dies in this set.  **squeal**


I struggled getting a photo showing off the large Poppy Parade snowflake that was clear embossed.  After the image cooled, I sprinkled Yellow Brusho Crystals over the embossed image and the rest of the Watercolor Paper.  Once you spritz the crystals with the Stampin' Spritzer, you'll want to set it aside for several minutes to dry.  The sentiment is punched with the 1" Circle Punch and is popped up on a Balmy Blue snowflake die.



The only silver on the card is the Silver Metallic Thread that is behind the Balmy Blue snowflake.  I did splatter some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using my Aqua Painter, but again, it is really hard to see.  Trust real life, this card shines.  I hope you like my version of Silver Bells and Sea Shells...nothing remotely like it, huh?!!  Teehehe!
