New Review for the 06-2020 OSAT Blog Hop

OSAT header

Its a New Review for the 06-2020 OSAT Blog Hop! Today we are featuring brand new products from the brand new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I used the Many Layered Blossoms Dies and the PPPS Technique by Kylie Bertucci of Australia to create my card. I used three of the new In Colors: Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, and Just Jade.

What is the PPPST? Paper Piecing Press n Seal Technique. Press n Seal plastic wrap is slightly sticky on one side, and it makes paper piecing from intricate die cuts so much easier! It’s available in your local grocery store.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great new projects! Use the line up below if you get lost.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Cinnamon Cider card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • sentiment in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Just Jade CS

Cut using the Many Layered Blossoms Dies:

  • a piece of Bumblebee CS using the large outline die
  • a piece of Just Jade CS using the same die
  • NOTE: before removing each die cut from the die cutting machine, burnish a piece of Press n Seal over it to keep all the pieces in place

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • removed the outline piece from the Bumblebee CS die cut
  • onto the back of the Bumblebee CS die cut, applied Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the large flower petals, and glue onto the other pieces
  • pressed the whole thing in place onto the front of the card base, then very gently peeled back the Press n Seal
  • removed the outline piece from the Just Jade CS die cut, applied glue onto the back, and glued it around the Bumblebee CS pieces (A pointy tip, like a Take Your Pick Tool, is very helpful.)
  • tied a piece of ribbon in a bow and adhered it onto the sentiment using a Mini Glue Dot
  • adhered sentiment over flowers (I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional at the left end, and glued the rest of it onto the large petals.
  • 3 pearls applied onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

What I would do differently:

  • After looking at the photo, I think the bow seems a bit large. I would probably make it smaller.
  • Maybe I’d emboss the background, probably with the Subtle embossing folder.
  • Maybe I’d heat emboss the sentiment in white.
  • How would you change this card?

What’s better in winter than a cup of hot cocoa? Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new Cup of Christmas Bundle (Cup of Christmas stamp set and Cup of Cheer Dies) and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can use it as a Christmas card, but it’s really an all occasion winter themed card.

Harvest Hellos for ICS 09-2019

It’s time for the ICS 09-2019 Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Fabulous Fall. What could be more fabulous that going back to school? I know, not everyone feels that way, but when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get back to see my friends. I enjoyed school. And the beginning of the school year was special because I got a new notebook, paper, pencils, etc. and some new school clothes. My project for today is a welcome back to school card. I used the Harvest Hellos bundle (Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch.) I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock for the apple. The star background is from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. All the new holiday products are now available to order!

New Wildly Happy Card for June 2019 IRBH

Inking Royalty Blog Hop June 2019 "New"

I’m Wildly Happy that it’s time for the Inking Royalty June Blog Hop! This year we’re featuring one word each month. June’s word is NEW, which is appropriate since this is the month when the new annual catalog went live. I imagine a lot of us will be using new products for our projects – I know I am!

As soon as the new catalog went live, I couldn’t wait to get the new Wildly Happy stamp set on page 101. It has some of the sweetest images in the whole catalog. 

Wildly Happy stamp set © Stampin' Up!

I especially love the elephants. I learned a lot about these magnificent creatures when I visited the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand a couple years ago. One of the elephants I saw was using her trunk to pull down bamboo trees – very big bamboo trees. The pattern of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper I used for the background on this card reminds me of bamboo leaves. It looks like mommy and baby are nuzzling in a cozy bamboo forest. So sweet!
