This is my first time participating in the One Stamp at a Time (OSAT) Blog Hop. I’m thrilled to join this talented group of stampers. After you read my post, I hope you’ll click through to the next stop on the hop.
Today we’re highlighting products from the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs. I chose the Tutti-Frutti Suite from the Occasions Catalog (p.28-29) and the coordinating Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog (p.14.) These products are chock full of sweet images, sentiments, and embellishments – even self adhesive sequins! And the colors are what I call Happy Colors. Just look at the the colors in the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper:
Here’s what I made:
Tea light holder:
Tea light holder with a lit tea light inside: (Only use a battery operated tea light – never real flame.)
Inside of the card:
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Night of Navy card stock (CS) cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
- Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
- Night of Navy CS cut to 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″
- Whisper White CS cut to 2-5/8″ x 3″
- 2 Tutti-Frutti card bases – 3/8″ cut off one end, and scored 3/8″ from the other end
- Whisper White CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″, then scored 1/4″ from each of the four sides
- Tutti-Frutti DSP cut to 2″ x 4″
- Whisper White CS cut to 1-3/4″ x 3-1/8″
Stamped with the Fruit Basket stamp set:
- bowl in Garden Green ink onto a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS
- 7 strawberries in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
- card sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto the 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS
- tag sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink onto the 1-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Whisper White CS
- a strawberry in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto the inside of a third card base
- a strawberry in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto the front of the envelope
Cut using the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack:
- 7 strawberries from the Whisper White CS scrap
- 3 strawberries from each side of the 2 trimmed card bases, near the bottom
Cut with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:
- one end of the 2″ x 4″ DSP, to create the tag
Die cut using the Eastern Medallion Thinlits:
- a medallion from each side of the 2 trimmed card bases
Cut using Paper Snips:
Colored using a Stampin’ Write Marker:
- darkened some of the strawberry tops in Lemon Lime Twist
- added shadows to the bowl in Lemon Lime Twist
Assembled the card:
- 6 strawberries glued onto the back of the bowl
- bowl of strawberries and the one remaining strawberry adhered to the 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
- 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS glued onto the 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Night of Navy CS
- 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Night of Navy CS glued onto the 3-3/4″ x 5″ DSP
- 3-3/4″ x 5″ DSP DSP glued onto the 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8 Night of Navy CS
- 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8 Night of Navy CS glued onto the front of the card base (this is the untrimmed card base with a strawberry stamped inside)
Assembled the tealight holder:
- burnished all score lines of the 2 trimmed card bases with a Bone Folder
- adhered the 3/8″ section of each card base to the inside of the other card base, to form the four sides of the holder
- burnished all score lines of the 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ Whisper White CS with a Bone Folder
- cut one score line at each corner to create tabs
- glued each tab to the inside of the adjacent side to create a tray for the bottom of the holder
- put the tray inside the holder and glue on all four sides – I found it easiest to drop the tray down into the holder and press it to the bottom, then flip it over and squeeze a little glue between the two pieces.
- applied Tutti-Frutti Washi Tape around the top and bottom of the holder
- NOTE: You can just have the four sides. You don’t have to have the bottom tray, but I think it adds stability and shape to the holder.
Assembled the tag:
- 3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Whisper White CS glued to the blue side of the DSP tag
- 3 self adhesive sequins applied to the tag
- ran 5″ of Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon through the hole
- tied a piece of Whisper White Solid Twine around the ribbon
- attached tag to the tealight holder with a mini white clothes pin from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit
