Hello my peeps and a very happy Thursday to you! Today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. The focus this month is on Spring! Who couldn’t use a little Spring?! I know that I’m all about the flowers and bright colors lately trying to hurry it along! If you have arrived here from Martie Hillyer’s blog, welcome! Didn’t she have some fun projects?! I have a card and a 3D project for you today!
First up is the card. I have been really enjoying watercoloring lately so I had to do another floral watercolor card. My card base is Naturals White Card Stock. All of the images are from the Forever Florals Stamp Set. I heat embossed the Lavender on my Watercolor Paper background with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and painted it with Blackberry Bliss Ink. The rest of the flowers are heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Watercolor Paper also. I used Hello Honey and Strawberry Slush Ink to paint the other flowers. They are cut out with Paper Snips and adhered to the card SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Ellen Hutson Zipper Panel Designer Die and is cut out from a piece of Blackberry Bliss. I used some Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere it to the card. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and also adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue. I adhered a piece of craft foam behind the Watercolor panel and then adhered it to the card base. I really do love the look of the white heat embossing with the watercoloring, so soft and subtle and the sequins add just the right amount of bling!
My 3D project uses two of the new Bigz Dies from the 2015 Occasions Catalog. The basket is created from White Coaster Board and cut out with the Berry Basket Bigz L Die. I used some Kraft Card Stock for the scallop and it’s held together with staples from the Handheld Stapler. For the grass I used the Fringe Scissors and some Garden Green. The large poppy is cut out from Real Red and Basic Black with the Bouquet Bigz L Die. I put it together with hot glue and then placed it in the basket. For little extra I cut out a piece of Whisper White with the Handpicked Framelits and stamped the greeting from the From the Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the flower on Real Red with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut it out with my Paper Snips. The bow is a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper also cut out with the Handpicked Framelits. On the front of the basket is a butterfly cut out from a piece of Hello Honey with the Butterfly Framelits and held on to the basket with a Mini Metallic Clothes Pin. I think that this would make a fun centerpiece for any table!
And there you have my card and basket for the OSAT Blog Hop! I hope that you enjoyed them and the rest of the tour. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today. Next up is my talented buddy Eva! I know that you are going to love what she has for you! Have a thoroughly awesome Thursday! 🙂
