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!

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!

  1. Hi Justin, I love this set you made. That is a great stamp set. I like your color choices . . . very rich!

  2. HI Justin:

    I think that embossing folder is fantastic and I just received my SU order yesterday with it. I have all kinds of ideas floating in my head for using it but none are as beautiful as what you have prepared for today. This set is fabulous and just perfect for any of my globe trotting friends. The gray, black, silver combination really does make the images stand out and they are beautiful for sure. What a fabulous job you did, I love it.

    You have yourself a Terrific Thursday and have fun at your class tonight and tomorrow night. Can’t wait to see what you make. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO 🙂
