OSAT Blog Hop - Birthdays Bash!

Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop for September with a theme of Birthdays Bash!  If you are hopping along with us, I hope you enjoyed the great projects from Jeanna!

For my card and project I decided to use some new Stampin' Up! holiday catalog DSP for non-Christmas.  My big brother has a birthday coming up next month, so I thought he would like a card and gift card envelope using this paper.

The card base is Thick Whisper White, the black mat layer is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", and the Crumb Cake layer is 4" x 5 1/4".  The Crumb Cake cardstock was run through the Big Shot and embossed with the Woodland TIEF.  The sentiment is from Guy Greetings and stamped in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  It was cutout using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies and popped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then used the Leaflets Framelits Dies to cut out various leaves out of the Warmth & Cheer DSP.  A little bit of linen thread was used to finish off this card!

My project is a gift card envelope.  It also used the Warmth & Cheer DSP and Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.  The little circles on the envelope are in Basic Black.  I punched a whole in them and the DSP to put the copper brads through.  I then used the Leaflets Framelits Dies to cut out a leaf out of the Warmth & Cheer DSP.  The sentiment is from Guy Greetings and stamped in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  It was cutout using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies  I punched a little whole in the tag.  Linen thread was then used to close up the envelope and attached the leaf & sentiment.




I hope you have enjoyed my card & project!  Your next stop in the hop is from my friend, Anna!

ICS Blog Hop Technique Time


Welcome! It's ICS blog hop time! Our theme is ‪Technique Time!  I decided to do the ghosting technique!  It is where you first stamp your image in Whisper White craft ink and then stamp your image on top in your regular stamp ink color.  


A good friend of mine has a birthday upcoming later this week, so I thought her birthday card would be perfect for this ghosting technique as I know she loves Fall.  The card base is Very Vanilla cardstock, the mat layer is Cajun Craze at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4", and the Crumb Cake layer that I stamped on is 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".  The sentiment is Very Vanilla cardstock size 3/4" x 3 1/4", and the Happy Birthday is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set stamped in Cajun Craze ink and popped with Stampin' Dimensionals. 


The leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set are first stamped in Whisper White craft ink on your Crumb Cake cardstock.   I then stamped over them in Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry.  My one tip is to make sure you clean off your stamp when stamping the Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry if it gets Whisper White craft ink on it, so that you don't get Whisper White craft ink on your other ink pads. 


Thanks for stopping by my post in the ICS blog hop!  The next stop in your hop is the fantastic is Terri with the Triple Time Stamping Technique.

ICS Blog Hop Fabulous Framelits


Welcome! It's ICS blog hop time! Our theme is ‪Fabulous Framelits!  I had to use my most favorite new framelits from Stampin' Up! the Everyday Jars!!  Here in the lower midwest we are in the middle of peach season.  Just last week I went to an orchard to pick some, and now I need to find some great recipes for peaches.  Peaches & canning were the inspiration for my card!




The card base is one of the new in colors, Emerald Envy.  The next layer is Whisper White cardstock with the peaches in Peekaboo Peach & Tangerine Tango.  The peaches were inked in Peekaboo Peach and then the Tangerine Tango was added with a sponge dauber.  The other wonderful combination for peaches I found out from another demonstrator is Peekaboo Peach with an accent of Flirty Flamingo.  The leaves were inked in Emerald Envy.  For the jars I stamped a bunch of just the peaches on Whisper White cardstock.  The jars were stamped in Tempting Turquoise on top of the cardstock of peaches and then cut out with the framelits.  The lids are Pacific Point ink on Pacific Point cardstock.  The sentiment is from Sheltering Tree and stamped in Emerald Envy on Peekaboo Peach.  It was cut out with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.  The inside of the card needed a jar of peaches too!



Thanks for stopping by my post in the ICS blog hop!   
The next stop in your hop is the fantastic, Andrea!
