OSAT Blog Hop with Tutti Frutti

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

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 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:

  • bowl

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

Tissues for a Spooky Night

I like to decorate my whole house for Halloween. I even want the tissue boxes to be Halloweeny. The Spooky Night Designer Series Paper with witch hats on it seemed perfect for a cute and festive, yet spooky tissue box cover. And it’s so easy, you just won’t believe it. It’s almost like wrapping a gift. This is one of the vertical cube-like tissue boxes (about 4-1/2″ on each side and 5″ tall) but you can certainly apply the same method to the long, horizontal boxes. 

 

Here’s what I made:

Festive Halloween Tissue Box cover made using Stampin' Up! Spooky Night Designer Series Paper by Stamp Candy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 12″ x 4-1/2″
  • DSP cut to 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″
  • DSP cut to 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ for the top

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • Selected three sized of oval dies, the smallest of which was almost as big at the hole in the top of the box
  • Pumpkin Pie card stock (CS) cut with the middle sized die, then the center cut out with the smallest die
  • Basic Black CS cut with the largest die, then the center cut out with the smallest die
  • cut a hole in the center of the 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of DSP with the smallest of the three dies

Assembled the cover:

  • Be sure not to make the cover too tight, or it will be too difficult to remove it and put it on a new box
  • the two 4-1/2″ strips of DSP wrapped around the box and glued together at both ends – be careful not to glue the DSP to the box itself, unless you want it to be permanent, instead of a removable box cover
  • the 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of DSP centered on top of the box and folded down the sides, then burnished the creases with a bone folder
  • cut one crease line at each corner with Paper Snips, then put it back on top of the box with the first DSP pieces wrapped around the sides of the box – be sure the sides pieces go all the way down to the bottom of the box
tissue box cover - top, #stampcandy

top piece of tissue box cover, fold dotted lines and cut solid lines

  • glue the folded over bits of DSP to the sides, tucking the corner pieces under the adjacent side.
  • adhered ribbon with Tear & Tape, being sure to cover the seam where the two pieces of DSP meet.
  • Pumpkin Pie CS oval glued onto the Basic Black CS oval, lining up the center holes
  • Basic Black CS oval glued onto the top of the DSP box cover, lining up the center holes

A Happy Little Garland from the Wood Words Bundle

Once again, I used one of my favorite color combinations (Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight,) this time to make a garland using the Wood Words Bundle (Wood Words stamp set and Wood Crate Framelits Dies.) Each dangly ornament is made from three pieces of the same shape scored down the center and glued together.

This is very easy to make and will brighten up any space.

 

Here’s what I made:

Wood Crate Shelves for a Baby’s Room

Today’s project may look involved, and it is, to be honest, but I had a great time making it. When I was asked to create a display board for the new Wood Textures Suite at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in April, I looked around for ideas other than just putting treats in a crate. I looked online to see what people do with crates, and by far the most popular thing was to stack them to make shelves. So I decided to do that. I made the crates out of pastel colors of card stock, thinking if this were in a baby’s or child’s room, the crates may have been painted. The items on the shelves are toys, plants, and a few parents’ items.

 

 

Today’s project is also a part of Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlight for June. The theme this month is Baby, and I thought this project would be perfect.

The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop next month, so please vote for my card. You can do that by clicking on this button:

 

Here’s what I made:

I didn’t take a photo of this project until after I had returned from OnStage, so please forgive any parts that may have been mashed or warped from transporting it or from folks handling it.

  • 9 crates assembles with glue
  • crates glued to each other and onto paneling
  • attached items to inside of crates with strips of CS in each crate color. I folded each CS strip into a triangle for a “stand” and glued it to the back of the item and to the bottom of the crate (see photo below)

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop!  We are excited to share some super-fun creations with you today!  This month’s Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that feature each artist’s take on the spookiest time of year – Halloween.  What fun!  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

This is the hop I’ve been waiting for! Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of Halloween. My husband and I throw a party every year and invite all our friends. Some people fly cross country for it. We’ve even had folks cross an ocean for it!

We always have a costume contest, and I like to make the awards. A few years ago I found some little plastic skulls with spines on stands in a bargain bin somewhere (probably Target or Michael’s.) They were super cheap and I knew I would be able to use them at some point, so I got them. This is their year. The party theme is Circus, so I’m making creepy little clown trophies out of them.

Here’s how I did it:

I made the hat from a piece of paper from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack and Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine. I’m the first to admit that I am an abysmal pompom maker, but for this project I don’t think it matters so much. The loops of twine along the bottom of the hat are also messy. I think it adds to the creepiness of the overall look. The hat is put together, and attached to the skull, with Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots, and Tear & Tape adhesives.

I used the 1″ Circle Punch to cut a piece of Real Red card stock and attached it to the nose with 4 layered Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the bowtie, I used the Bow Builder Punch to cut a piece of Basic Black card stock. I photocopied the pieces at 300%, and cut out the larger pieces. I used these to cut out the bowtie pieces from a piece of Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper. I assembled the bow with Fast Fuse, and attached it to the spine with Mini Glue Dots.

I haven’t made the tags yet for each award: Scariest Costume, Prettiest Costume, etc. I’m still trying to decide exactly what I want to do. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
