Good morning stampers and paper crafters! The heat of summer in July is here; and so is our One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop. My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited you've stopped by. 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 project(s), 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!
Our July theme is "Pretty in Pink" and the new 2020-2022 In Color, Magenta Madness sure is purrrrdy! I have to admit that when I first saw the introduction of this color via a Stampin' Up! video, I was like "ewwww", turning up my nose and telling myself 'that pink is too retro for my creative tastes'. Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm eating my words right about now. ACK!
The new Flowers for Every Season Designer Series paper has a number of patterns that include Magenta Madness in it. I love this one with the smaller flower images...made perfect for the die cut from the Hippo & Friends Die set. The letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies set fit quite nicely in there, too. To give the "Happy" die cuts some depth, I added a strip of Magenta Madness cardstock to the back using dimensionals. I had to use Mini Dimensionals that were trimmed to fit for the centers of the "A" and "P".
I chose one of the subtle Bumblebee patterns found in the Flowers for Every Season Designer pack to add a light color that would not clash with the floral pattern. I love how it sits, kitty-wampus, on the card base front so that there's a bit more white showing at skinny angles versus long rectangles.
The "Birthday" sentiment comes from the Well Said stamp set and was inked with Magenta Madness, stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed down with Paper Snips before setting in place with dimensionals. This stamp set is loaded with sentiments! I mean, seriously, there are 51 different images in this 2-case bundle. There's definitely something for every occasion within this set.
To add a little more color to the overall card layout, I added some balloon die cuts (Hippo & Friends Dies) using coordinating colors from the floral pattern — Just Jade, Poppy Parade and Magenta Madness. They each have a strand of Linen Thread that was gathered with a bow to make it look like a balloon bouquet. Lastly, adhere some of the clear gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems pack with Multipurpose Liquid glue. I just love the fun and whimsical appearance of this card! Suitable for any age, don't you think?
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!
