OSAT September Blog Hop – Throwback Thursday!

Home / American Crafts / OSAT September Blog Hop – Throwback Thursday!

We have had nice Summer like weather for the past two days, it got up into the 80’s and was nice and sunny too! I went over to see my friend Sue during the day to help with some of the Etsy orders! If you haven’t checked out her store you can by clicking HERE! There is a ton of fun stamping goodness with more being added all the time! When I got home around 5:00 Taylor stopped by for a bit and then I went over to see Heather. We ran up to IKEA to get a few things and then sat and chatted in her backyard. Tonight I’m headed into Manhattan to see Kinky Boots with my friend Kim. She got the tickets for my Birthday! That should be loads of fun! 😀

For my projects 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. If you have arrived here from the talented Marisa Gunn’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Throwback Thursday Theme! I base my card on one that I did a while ago. You can see it below…

To start I stamped the images from the Essentials by Ellen Mistletoe & Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Solar White 80lb and colored them in with Copics. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I adhered some of the images with Tombo Dot Runner and 3M Foam Tape. The greetings for both the card and tag are cut from Gold Glitter Card with the Essentials by Ellen Holiday Words Dies. I adhered the Peace to the card with more Foam tape and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to complete it.

My tag is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tag Die from more Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Again I added the images with Dot Runner and 3M Foam Tape along with the Joy and a few more Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins.

They coordinate but don’t match exactly and I like that you can do that with just a change of the greeting!

  1. Love your cards today, Justin, with the gold glitter words and beautiful poinsettia. Very pretty. You will love Kinky Boots. We saw it a couple of years ago and loved it. Saturday we are taking a bus trip to NYC to see Hello, Dolly! We got our tickets last November and it’s finally here!! Have a great time extending your birthday celebration!

  2. So beautiful! I love the poinsettia, holly and mistletoe from the Ellen Hutson set! You need to stop enabling me! I’m telling myself over and over that I have enough stamps..lol

  3. Wow! I absolutely love both, even though I can’t bear to think about Christmas. these stamps and dies are gorgeous.

    Hopefuly we should see summer this weekend. It has been fall here, 40’s overnight, freezing, and mornings heavy fog. Only in Chicago.

    enjoy your b-day gift

    1. Thank you Linda! I love them too and agree that’s it’s a little too early!
      I hope that you get some nice weather back! We have been really lucky here! I’m still in shorts and flip flops!
      The play was awesome! 🙂
