OSAT Blog Hop — April Spring Fling

Hello stampers and paper crafters!  My name is Lori Mueller ( and I want to welcome you to my blog and the April 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 "Spring Fling", and oh, how I wish Spring would come around and plant itself solid.  But, noooo, we have more cold weather, sleet and snow in the forecast today.  YUCK!


I've been having lots of fun playing with a stamp set and framelits dies bundle that has not received any attention from me since it arrived in my craft stash.  YIKES!  The Hold on to Hope stamp set was designed by a million dollar achiever, Brandi Cox, and coordinates with the Cross of Hope set of framelit dies.  Several of the images rendered different Spring-like color choices...Mango Melody, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo.


I came across a really cool technique that is new to me called "Floating Frame".  The benefit of this technique is that you can create two different card layouts with the one arrangement.  You can click on the images to get a closer look at how the butterfly and flower images "float" on the stitched Pear Pizzazz oval using Stampin' Dimensionals.


To add a some light texture to the arrangement, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.  The Grapefruit Grove strip of Gingham Designer Series Paper gives it a vintage/country ambiance.  I just love how this turned out...the butterflies actually look like they are 'floating' around the oval ready to land on one of the beautiful flowers.

I did a Facebook Live online demonstration assembling the 'floating frame' card together.  It is an unedited video, but you can see how the process is done and apply the same steps to the card I am sharing with you today.  If you enjoy online stamp classes, please Like and Follow my business Facebook page so that you'll receive notifications for all my Live events...Sunday Stampin' Dreams.  I'd love to have you join me as I share what I love to do...stamp and papercraft! 


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!
