Stitched All Around & Handwritten Card

I used two new stamp sets and three new colors on today’s card. The Handwritten background stamp has so many different words in it’s adorable font, that it’s perfect for many different projects. The sentiment is from the Stitched All Around stamp set. Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, and Pineapple Punch join to make this card bright and cheerful.

Lay it Out with Best Route for OSAT Blog Hop

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

This month on the OSAT Blog Hop, we are featuring scrapbook page layouts. I think a lot of people think of Stampin’ Up! products as only for card making. Of course, they do make amazing cards, but they can also be used for scrapbooking, or memory keeping. I’ve used the Best Route suite to create a scrapbook page and coordinating cards .

I spent last weekend in Minnesota with some dear friends. We live all over the US and we get together every June for a long crafting weekend. We take turns hosting, and this time it was Christine’s turn, who lives in Minnesota. She found a lovely old house by a lake, and it has a big craft room with lots of tables and chairs. The peonies were blooming in abundance. And we had some amazing food. The onion straws at the 5-8 Club were delicious, as were the Juicy Lucys!

Here’s what I made:

Here you can see the enamel shapes. I used the blue arrows with the journaling to point toward the photos. And each photo has a map marker.

You can also see that my handwriting is turning into an old lady’s scrawl! It has a lot of angles and points where it used to be more rounded, which is indicative of arthritis. Just FYI.

  • Blueberry Bushel card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″

Very Vintage Tissue Box Cover

I can’t seem to get enough of the Very Vintage host stamp set. Especially the large floral image I’ve used today…..and the last few days. At least today’s project is a little different in that it isn’t even a card. It’s a tissue box cover. I like to make at least one whenever a new catalog comes out. 

A tissue box cover comes in really handy when you want to match the decor of your room, or when you order a case of what you think are solid color boxes of tissues but instead receive a case with cartoon characters on them. Nothing against the cartoon characters, but they aren’t what I had planned on.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 9-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, then scored at 4-1/2″ and 9″ (2 pieces)
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 6-9/16″ x 6-9/16″, and scored 1″ from each of the four edges

Stamped with the Very Vintage stamp set:

  • floral image into Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • stamped image using a scalloped oval die
  • a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS using a large plain oval die
  • a scrap of Whisper White CS using a plain oval die and a larger scalloped oval die
  • a hole in the Bermuda Bay box top using a plain oval die
  • NOTE: the box top is wider than the Big Shot platform, so I folded in two opposite sides and used them to center the die

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner of the Bermuda Bay box top to create tabs

Assembled the cover:

  • folded and burnished the score lines with a Bone Folder
  • glued the skinny tab on each Coastal Cabana piece onto the inside of the other one, to create the main box
  • glued the tabs onto the inside of the adjacent sides of the box top
  • glued the die cut Whisper White oval frame around the hole in the box top
  • the stamped image onto the die cut Bermuda Bay CS oval
  • slipped the box top over the box, gluing the inside of the box top sides to the outside of the box sides
  • glued the Bermuda Bay CS oval onto the front of the box, centering it between the bottom edge of the box top and bottom edge of the box

Another Very Vintage & Enjoy Life Thank You Card

Yesterday I shared a sweet thank you card I made using the Very Vintage host stamp set and the Enjoy Life stamp set. You can see it here.  Today’s card is the one I was making when I made the mistake that led to yesterday’s card. I had stamped the floral image from the Very Vintage stamp set once, and put another piece of card stock in the Stamparatus to stamp a second one. I forgot to re-ink the stamp so I got the lovely stamped off image on yesterday’s card. Today’s card has the full strength inked image, so the card base is Blueberry Bushel, instead of the soft Petal Pink I felt the stamped off version warranted.

 

Here’s what I made:
