OSAT July Blog Hop – Shabby Chic

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

I just can’t say enough about how lovely the weather has been here! And down by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store there is a breeze all the time that is just heavenly! Lots got accomplished at the store today! My friend Sue came by to help me, she so awesome! We got everything cut for Card Class. I made a custom stamp for someone with my Mint! That was fun! When I got home my little buddy Daniel was at my Parent’s. I had dinner and then he and I played with his trucks and made it rain grass on them which he thought was pretty awesome! I’m sure that when he starts doing that at my Brother’s house I will hear about it! LOL! He went to see his sister yesterday, here is a little picture of that…

Daniel & Tristan

I think that he will make a very good big brother! He even combed her hair while he was there! The rest of the evening was pretty quiet, just how I wanted it to be! ūüėÄ

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 my good friend¬†Dena’s¬†blog, welcome! This month we have a Shabby Chic¬†theme! Not really a style that I’m good at but¬†I’m up for¬†trying anything! I have two cards and a fun little box to share with you!

Both of the cards use most of the same elements. They both have bases of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock covered in a piece of Early Espresso. The patterned paper on both is the same too, it’s from Blue Fern and is from the Timeless Collection. The flowers on both cards are from the Altenew Botanical Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed on Tim Holtz Watercolor Card with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I used¬†Dusty Concord, Pumice Stone and Bundled Sage Distress Inks and a Waterbrush to color in the flowers and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. On the first card I adhered a piece of the Timeless Paper to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner after distressing the edges. A Tea Lace Paper Doily is then adhered to the left side. On top of that is another piece of the Timeless Paper under a piece of Gold Mirror Card that I cut out with the Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Accent Nestabilities. My flowers are adhered with Foam Tape and Dot Runner. For the greeting I heat embossed the hello from the Altenew Halftone Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in more Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and cut it and piece of Fun Foam out with the Coordinating Die. It’s adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. A scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Amethyst Sequins finishes the card.

OSAT July Blog Hop Card 2-WM

The second card also has a piece of the Timeless Paper adhered with E-Z Runner. I cut another piece to 3 1/2″ x 4″, distressed the edges and adhered that with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few loose loops of May Arts Twine are adhered under the flowers on this card. My greeting is from the Altenew Painted Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold on a piece of Early Espresso with the right side flagged. Some Foam Tape adhered that to the card and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card.

OSAT July Blog Hop Card 1-WM

My box is cut from the same Blue Fern Timeless Paper using the Spellbinders Makers Mart Month 4 Die Set. I then used some more of the dies to cut feathers out of Gold Mirror Card and leaves out of green card stock. They and a flower that I found at the store along with a piece of the Twine that I tied into a bow are adhered to the top of the box. A super fun and simple project to make!

OSAT Blog Hop – Summer Lovin’

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

What started out as a nice sunny morning turned into November! LOL! Around 1:00 it started to pour and got really windy! I choose to wear shorts and flip flips today, bad choice! I did manage to get a few projects done at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! It was a good day to be crafty at work! When I got home I had some dinner at my parent’s, my mum had gone over to see our neighbor whose husband had just passed away. They have been friends for a while and she is a very nice lady. My Dad and I chatted for a bit and then I came home and Taylor was here napping on the couch with binge watching Secrets of Magic on Netflix through her eyelids! Around 9:00 I ran up to BJ’s to get some stuff for work and bumped into Sue and her husband Joe. We talked for a while waiting on line. I miss seeing Sue! When I got back home I finished up my card and then typed my post before calling it a day. I have my Stamping 101 Class tonight, that should be 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 my good friend Andrea’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Summer Lovin’¬†theme!¬†Ahh, Summer love, I have had one of those, I miss it!

First up I have a card. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of My Colors Slate. I adhered a strip of My Colors Mini Dot Prairie Hearts Paper down the left side. Some Gold Mirror Card is cut out with the Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents Dies using my Artisan X-Plorer, I also embossed the die cut and then adhered it to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. My flowers and leaves are form the Altenew Vintage Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are stamped in Arctic, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue and Sapphire Crisp Ink for the flowers and Morning Frost, Evening Gray and Moon Rock Crisp Ink for the leaves using my Mini MISTI. I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered them to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder on a piece of 46lb Vellum. I trimmed it out with my Scissors and adhered it to the flower with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. I was going to add some sequins but I thought that it looked nice just the way it was!

The other project I have for you is a box¬†that I made using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I used the same Card Stock, Dies and Stamps to create it. I love the coordination with the card using the same stamps and shapes! It’s also a lot of fun to dig through Renee’s stash and use things that I normally wouldn’t get to use!

OSAT Blog Hop – May Flowers!

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

I had a busy day yesterday! I had to run out to Riverhead to get some documents, it’s an hour from me and thankfully Sue came along for the ride! We were in and out so that was good. The weather was absolutely gorgeous here too! Nice bright sun and temps in the 70’s! We stopped and looked at few things at a store and then had some Sonic for lunch! When we got back to my house Sue took a bunch of stuff home to work on for me and then I went over to see my parents and little Daniel. He has a cold that he got from his cousin! Those little ones do like to pass around the germs don’t they?! I stopped back at my house and then headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to watch the store for Renee while she went and spent some time with her grandkids! I got to FaceTime with Andrea for a bit and I worked on some stuff while I was there. Today I’m going to meet Bill for lunch and then get a bunch more stuff done. Hopefully it will be nice again! I did enjoy my time in the convertible yesterday!

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 after seeing Megan’s¬†fabulous projects, welcome! This month we have a May flowers theme! More flowers! LOL! I have been on a flower kick lately, thankfully I have some new ones for you today!

First up is a card that uses some Altenew goodies! The card base is Neenah Solar White cut to 4″ wide with the front covered with a piece of Black 110lb. My flowers are from the Altenew Painted Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Hero Arts Bubblegum and Raspberry Jam Ink for the flowers and Simon Says Stamp Jellybean and Green Apple Ink for the leaves. The outlines of all of them are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and arranged them on my card. Some Press ‘n Seal is used to pick them up. I added some Foam Tape and Tombo Mono Adhesive to the back and then pressed them to my card and peeled off the Press ‘n Seal. The little black and white leaves are tucked in and adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. You can see how nice and easy it is here…

I stamped the butterfly from the Altenew Painted Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bubblegum and Raspberry Jam and used the Coordinating Dies to cut him out too. Some more Foam Tape holds him in place. My greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I love the loose artsy feel of the flowers and butterfly and I think they really pop against the black!

Next up is a fun tag! I painted a Wooden Tag with some Black Acrylic Paint while it dried I heat embossed a Wood Rose with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. My greeting is heat embossed in more Gold and is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set. I adhered the rose to the tag with Multi-Matte Medium and then tied a piece of American Crafts Pink Twine though the top! I think the tag would make a very nice package decoration and then whoever you give it to can keep it and use as for a little home decor!

OSAT Blog Hop – Toc-Tac-Toe!

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

It was definitely a little nicer here yesterday! Warmer and sunny all day! We are supposed to get up into the 70’s over the weekend finally! My little trip to the Dr. with Brian yesterday morning was a lengthy one! We got there at 8:15 and by¬†the time that he was finished it was 11:15! I had a nice little nap in the car so it was all good! We stopped by the deli on the way home and I had lunch with him and Kim. Once I got back to my house I managed to get a little crafting done. Heather came and got me at 4:30 so we could make a quick run to BJ’s. I had dinner with my parent’s and then headed over to Heather’s. We had a nice evening and watched some YouTube videos and a few movie trailers. Today I need to get my laundry done! It’s been three weeks! I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that I have enough clothes for three weeks to wear or to wash! LOL!

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. This month we have a Tic-Tac-Toe board! Love Tic-Tac-Toe, you get a really nice variation in the projects that way!

OSAT Tic-Tac-Toe

If you have arrived here from my friend¬†Dena’s¬†blog¬†welcome! I love her projects!!¬†I have a¬†card and a little tag¬†for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is my card. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock for the base and covered that in a piece of Desert Storm 80lb. My frame is a piece of Woodgrain Card Stock from Ellen Hutson that I cut out with the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts. A generous coating of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is added to it and then it’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. My flowers are Solar White 80lb and Cucumber Crush that I cut out with The Ton Petal Cut Peonies Dies. They are all coated with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then adhered to the card. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed on Vellum with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and adhered to the card with Tombo Vellum Adhesive. The card needed a little more sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! I love that Woodgrain Card Stock, I have had it for a long time but just recently “found” it!

OSAT March 2016 Blog Hop - Card-WM

No on to the coordinating tag! The front is cut from the same Woodgrain Card Stock using the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts along with a piece of Fun Foam. The set also comes with a solid tag¬†without the circle cutout and that’s what I used to cut out the Acetate and the backing from another piece of Desert Storm 80lb. I assembled the layers adhering them together with Scor-Tape filling in the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on a piece of Cucumber Crush that is cut out with another die form the same set. I adhered it to the card with Foam Tape and tied a piece of Lawn Fawn Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings String though the top.

OSAT Blog Hop – Spring has Sprung!

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

I had a lovely two days in Manhattan! My time at The Ink Pad was fun as it always is, I of course picked up some more goodies! LOL! It’s rough sitting there looking at all of the awesome things that they have without leaving with something! I want to thank my amazing¬†friend Kim for her hospitality as always and I look forward to seeing her again on Friday! She’ll be at Card Class and then I’ll be squatting at her place yet again! She really is just the best! Today I’m off to see my friend Sue for Etsy fun and then it’s IKEA and Thirsty Thursday with Heather and the gang later on!

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. This month we have a Spring is Sprung¬†theme! It’s quite timely for here in NY, it was 76 degrees yesterday!!¬†If you have arrived here from¬†Megan’s¬†blog¬†welcome! Isn’t she clever?!¬†I have a¬†card and a little terrarium¬†for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is my card and that starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front in a piece of Lawn Fawn Mermaid Card Stock that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts. I used the same size Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Noble Fir and Solar White 80lb. On the Noble Fir I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Lawn Cut and on the Solar White I used the Puffy Clouds Border Lawn Cuts. I also cut out a piece of Solar White with the Picket Fence Border Lawn Cut.. The fence and grass are adhered with Multi-Matte Medium and the clouds with E-Z Runner. I stamped some images from the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends and Gleeful Gardens Photopolymer Stamp Sets in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with my Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts and all are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner with the exception of the fairy who is adhered with Foam Tape. The greeting is stamped on the clouds with Onyx Black and some Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Sparkling Clear Sequins are added to make it look like the fairy is sparkling some happiness on the greenery! I have to say that I’m really liking the Lawn Fawn Card Stock, nice bright and bold colors with a good weight to it and the fun spring scene is just fun!

OSAT March Blog Hop Card-WM

Next I have my little terrarium! I was inspired by the ones that I saw on the Lawn Fawn Blog a few weeks ago! All of the images are from the Fairy Friends and Gleeful Gardens Photopolymer¬†Stamp Sets, again colored in with my Copics and cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I took a styrofoam ball and trimmed off a piece and then wrapped it in some Green Felt adhering it with a Hot Glue Gun. I always forget how hot the glue is until I’m reminded by it sticking to my finger and giving me a nice blister! The pain we endure for crafting! LOL! The “grass” is then adhered to the lid with more hot glue. I used Floral Wire¬†adhered to the backs of the images to attach them to my “grass” and then screwed the lid closed. I think it’s a really cute piece of decor and will look neat on my kitchen table!

OSAT Blog Hop – Love is in the Air

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

It’s Thursday already?! Another week is just flying by! Yesterday I FaceTimed with Andrea while we worked on our projects for today’s hop. In the afternoon Taylor and Kiera brought Winston back and we watched some movie trailers on the Apple TV before I headed over to run some errands with Heather. When I arrived at Heather’s our friend Tom was there, he is working on a project with Starbucks not too far from Heather so he had stopped by on his way home. We chatted for a bit and then Heather and I headed out to BJ’s, Target and Petco. We had some dinner at Bellagio in Farmingdale, another great local Italian restaurant. I helped haul all of Heather’s goodies into the house and we laughed about silly stuff for a while and then I headed home. Another good day!

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. This month we have a timely Love is in the Air theme! I do enjoy a little Valentine!¬†If you have arrived here from¬†Dena’s¬†blog¬†welcome! She always has some great stuff!¬†I have a¬†card and a little home decor shaker¬†for you today so let’s get to it!

The card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Echo Park Hello Winter 12×12 Paper that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn 4 Bar Stitched Rectangles and adhered on an angle with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The frame, Polaroid Camera and Greetings are from the Lawn Fawn #awesome Photopolymer Stamp Set and are all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used Copics to color in the camera along with the Hedgehogs that are from the Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Photopolymer Stamp Set. The¬†coordinating Lawn Cuts cut all of them out. The inside of the frame has some Audrey Blue Ink that I applied with Mini Ink Blending Tool and across the bottom is a piece of Cucumber Crush that is cut across the top with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders. I adhered all of the images and greeting along with a few hearts that are cut from Real Red with the Lawn Fawn Hearts Lawn Cuts to the card with Foam Tape. A little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and Glossy Accents is added to the hearts and camera for a little more dimension. I love that little camera and the Hedgehogs are just too cute!

OSAYT Feb Blog Hop Card -WM

The second item that I have for you is a little heart shaker ornament. I cut out the heart from Ivory 110lb along with some Fun Foam and Acetate with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hearts Stackables Lawn Cuts. All of them are adhered to each other with Scor-Tape. Before adhering the back side on I filled the heart with Martha Stewart Iridescent Hearts and Stars Glitter and added the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon so I could hang it up. The coffee cup (I think my all time favorite stamp!) is from the Lawn Fawn Love You a Latte Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I stamped the little red heart from¬†the set in Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red and adhered the cup to the acetate with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder in Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. I used a tiny piece of Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere that in place. Finally a few of the sequins from the Crate Paper Hello Love Sequin Assortment are adhered to the outside of the heart with Bling Glue Dots. I do really love that little coffee cup and the double acetate makes it so you can see thought the shaker part which I think is really neat!

OSAT Blog Hop – No Rules New Year

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

Another week almost done! Yes, I’m still freezing, but we won’t talk about that anymore! I got up late again yesterday but still managed to get my laundry started before I went over to Heather’s to finish up her Mac issues. She made some delicious panini for lunch along with a salad. We watched some old Janet Jackson videos on YouTube before I came back home and FaceTimed with Andrea while I worked on my projects for today’s post. I will be spending most of the day at Scrap-A-Latte prepping for class, it’s tonight and tomorrow. FUN!

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. This month it’s No Rules for the New Year! We could make anything that we want!¬†If you have arrived here from¬†Dena’s blog¬†welcome! She had¬†some great projects, didn’t¬†she?!¬†I have a¬†card and a fun gift card holder¬†for you today so let’s get to it!

First we’ll cover the card. I played with some more Stampin’ Up! goodies, there was one whole page in the Occasions Catalog that I just had to have! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the World Traveller Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss¬†a piece of Crumb Cake and then used my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to bring out the detail. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The plane is from the Sky’s the Limit Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration and the greeting is from the Going Global Stamp Set. Both are¬†heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on Vellum. I cut the plane out with my Paper Snips and the greeting out with one of the Circles Collection Framelits. The plane is adhered with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape and the greeting with Multi-Matte Medium. Some Pretty Pink Posh Onyx Hazel and Ruby The Makery Shine & Sparkle Sequins finish off the card. I love that embossing folder and the plane is just so cool!

OSAT January Blog Hop-Card-WM

Now on to the gift card holder. I cut out a piece of paper from the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack with the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits and assembled it with Scor-Tape. The plane and greeting are both from the Going Places Stamp Set. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing powder right on the envelope and the plane is heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum on Solar White 80lb and cut out with my Paper Snips. I adhered the plane to the holder with Foam Tape and it’s finished! The perfect place to put a little something in for a birthday or just about any other occasion!

OSAT Blog Hop – Gratitude

OSAT Header

Hello! I hope that you are all enjoying your¬†week! I had a productive day with Sue and listing things on Etsy. I finally set up my store too and you can visit it HERE. I have just a few cards up on it for now but will be adding more in the future! After that I came home and spent a little time with Taylor before getting ready to go out with Sandy for dinner at Friday’s. We had a lovely time and it was great to catch up with her. She brought over her new MacBook for a few lessons and she will be an expert in no time! It’s so nice and thin, she got the space gray one, really beautiful! She left around 10:30 and I watched a little TV before calling it a night.

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 Gratitude!¬†If you have arrived here from¬†Marisa¬†welcome! She had¬†some great projects, didn’t¬†she?!¬†I have a¬†card and a fun gift card holder¬†for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is the card. I used some Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock for the base. My background is a piece of Kraft Card Stock that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wood Embossing Folder. A partial circle is cut out from the lower right with the Sizzix Circles Framelits and Fun Foam and SNAIL adhere it to the card. The leaves are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Catkin, Green Apple and Green Leaf Ink using the Hero Arts Holiday Pine Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set, they are cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. I adhered them in the circle with SNAIL. For the 25 I used some Gold Glimmer Paper and the Papertrey Ink By the Numbers Dies. I also cut out a piece of Fun Foam and adhered it to the back with Multi-Matte Medium before adhering them to card with the same. The thanks is cut from Solar White 80lb and also adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. I love the Kraft with the pops of Green and Gold, makes for an elegant yet understated thank you card!

Next up is the coordinating Gift Card Holder. I used the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Die to cut out a piece of Kraft Card Stock. The front is stamped with the “Vintage” Woodgrain Background Stamp. Some Scor-Tape is used to adhere the box together. The stamped images and numbers are the exact same as the ones that I used on the card. I adhered the leaves with SNAIL and the numbers are adhered with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I love the pillow box from Lawn Fawn, it’s sized to perfectly hold a gift card!

Hello! I hope that you are all having a good week! I had a nice day yesterday hanging out at The Ink Pad in Manhattan with Anna. You get to meet some really interesting people in a stamp store in the West Village! It was another beautiful day, the sun was shining and it was nice and warm! When I got home I had a sandwich with some ham, cheese and Salad Cream that I brought back from England, delicious! Then it was time for TV and bed!

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 Halloween! If you have arrived here from Raquelle Clifton welcome! She had some great projects, didn’t she?! I have two cards and a fun treat bag for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is a super simple card, probably the simplest card that I have ever made! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black. I used a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Something Wicked 6×6 Paper Pad and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. A few Pretty Pink Posh Charcoal and Sparkling Clear Sequins and done! It’s not often that you can find a piece of pattered paper that doesn’t need anything else! Love the sparkly mustache and top hat on the skull too!

The second card has the same base and also a piece of Black covers the front. A simple piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb Card Stock is the background with a “Vintage” Paper Pumpkin stamp for the greeting. My candies are from the Exclusive Simon Says Stamp with Waffle Flower How We Roll Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Jellybean Ink and Stampin’ Up! Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin’ Ink with the outlines stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut them out with the Coordinating Die and adhered them to the card with SNAIL and Foam Tape. I love those brightly colored candies!

OSAT October Blog Hop Candy Card-WM

Last but not least is my treat bag! I used the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die and some Black 100lb Card Stock for the bag itself. Before I assembled it I cut out a circle from the front with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Dies and adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the inside. Some 1/4″ Score Tape is used to assemble the bag. My ghost is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, he is form the Lawn Fawn Booyah! Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Booyah! Lawn Cuts to cut him, the bow tie and bag out. Some Foam Tape adheres him to the card and the bow tie to him, a little dab of Multi-Matte Medium adheres the bag. For the BOO I used the Lawn Fawn Owen’s ABC’s Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamped them in Tangerine Tango and cut the out with the Coordinating Dies. Some more Foam Tape adhered them to the treat bag. Fill it with some candy and you’re all set for your trick or treaters!

OSAT Blog Hop – Back to School

OSAT Header

Hello everyone, happy Thursday to you! The weather here yesterday was again nice! Sunny and not too hot with a little shower in the evening. The shower did produce a double rainbow though!

Double Rainbow

Pretty cool huh?! Last night I was at Scrap-A-Latte with Michael prepping for tonight and tomorrow night’s classes. After we had some Chili’s for dinner and watched some TV. Today I’m participating in the sixth¬†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 Back to School!¬†If you have arrived here from¬†Eva Bussom’s blog, welcome! My friend Eva always has some great projects, doesn’t she?!¬†I have one¬†card for you today so let’s get to it!

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the entire front is covered in a piece of Crumb Cake. Next up is some Daffodil Delight and on top of that is a piece of Real Red that I embossed with the Lucky Starts Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. They are both adhered to the card at an angle with SNAIL. My library card and date stamp are from the Lawn Fawn Check This Out Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The greeting is from the Lawn Fawn My Lucky Charm Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the library card with SNAIL and Fun Foam and the date stamp with Foam Tape. A few Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars are randomly adhered with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. I like the simplicity of the card, it’s a fun way to wish any student a great year at school!
