Good morning, stampers and paper crafters! Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop. My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm super excited to have you visiting me today. 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. We've got some amazing projects to share with you!
This month's theme is "Chick Ewe Out" (or, anything with animals related to Easter). I chose to bring out one of my favorite stamp sets with cutie-pie critters — Fable Friends. When I played with this set last year, I had only stamped cards using the adorable little bunny. So, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to ink up one of the other critter images to create a cute little Easter greeting card.
I wanted to create with a vintage tone, so I focused on soft subtle colors of greens and yellows with neutral tones of browns and tans. The Pleased As Punch designer paper (a new Coordination product release) was matted with Soft Suede cardstock and attached to a Whisper White Thick cardbase. Before I adhered the designer paper, I mixed up some White Embossing Paste with one dribble of So Saffron Reinker to add a bit of texture using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. Then 'flicked' some ink using my Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blend marker.
The little squirrel from Fable Friends stamp sentimate was inked with Memento and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die. LOVE that set of dies! I used a variety of Stampin' Blends colors to bring the squirrel to life delivering Easter wishes (see product list found at the bottom of this post). The sentiment also comes from the Fable Friends set, inked with Memento and matted with a coordinating Layering Scallop Circle in So Saffron.
I love the look of Linen Thread as an accent behind the focal image. Both the image and sentiment were set into place using Stampin' Dimensionals. The Iridescent Sequins give it just the right amount of bling that doesn't steal the show.
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, cute 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!
