OSAT Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the July 2020 OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Pretty in Pink, so we’re featuring the amazing pinks in the Stampin’ Up! color line up. As usual, I couldn’t choose just one, so I used them all: Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Rococo Rose, Melon Mambo, and Magenta Madness. I cut strips of card stock in all the colors and arranged them in a sort of pinwheel design for the front of the card. The sentiment I cut using the Playful Alphabet Dies, Whisper White Card stock, and the new Foam Adhesive Sheets. I stamped the frame from the Swirly Frames stamp set and heat embossed it in white. For the tag, I covered one side in the same strips, and cut the top with the Fancy Tag Topper Punch.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops! I can’t wait to see what all the blog hop team members have for us today!

  • Magenta Madness CS layer cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4-5/8″ x 3-3/8″ 
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″

  • Whisper White CS cut to 2″ x 6″
  • Flirty Flamingo CS cut to 2″ x 1-1/4″
  • Melon Mambo CS cut to 2″ x 1″

Stamped with the Swirly Frames stamp set:

  • frame in Versamark ink onto the strip layer, then heat embossed in white (after the strip layer was assembled)*

Cut using the Playful Alphabet Dies:

  • Whisper White CS applied onto a Foam Adhesive Sheet, then die cut the sentiment

Cut using the Fancy Tag Topper Punch:

  • top of tag

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • drew an X at the center of the smaller Whisper White CS layer as a guide for the CS strips
  • strips glued onto the smaller Whisper White CS layer, starting in the middle and working my way out
  • trimmed away the excess strip bits around the edge of the layer
  • stamped and heat embossed the frame in white*
  • peeled the backing off the die cut letters and applied them onto the strip layer, inside the white embossed frame
  • 3 Magenta Madness enamel dots applied around the sentiment
  • strip layer glued onto the larger Whisper White CS layer
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Magenta Madness CS layer
  • Magenta Madness CS layer glued onto the front of the Whisper White Thick CS card base

Assembled the tag:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • glued assorted pink CS strips onto one side of the tag at an angle
  • trimmed excess strip bits from all edges
  • glued the 2″ x 1″ Melon Mambo CS piece onto the bottom of the other side of the tag, and another skinny strip next to it
  • glued the 2″ x 1-1/4″ Flirty Flamingo CS piece onto the top end of the tag, and another skinny strip next to it, leaving a large white space to write on the tag
  • cut top end of the tag with the Tag Topper Punch
  • tied a piece of Magenta Madness ribbon through the hole in the tag
