OSAT Blog Hop Fuzzy Buzzy Friends Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to the March 2023 OSAT Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Insects or Animals and although I am totally Bee Crazy, I decided to go with the amazing Rain or Shine Suite!  This Suite features the Playing in the Rain Bundle that coordinates with the Rain or Shine Specialty 12x12" DSP!  I have 4 card ideas featuring primarily ideas using the DSP!

My first card is my favorite!  This DSP is soooo gorgeous!  The texture and shine on the rain drop patterned paper is absolutely beautiful!  

The only struggle with this card was how many images from the DSP could I highlight and still show that amazing raindrop paper in the background!  I added three cut out with stitched circles using the Stylish Shapes Dies.  I added  the "HI" using the Alpha bet A La Mode Dies!  

I used the sentiment with the Playing in the Rain Stamp Set for the inside of my card.

Of course I also had to add a strip of that raindrop paper to the inside.  The sentiment was cut out using the stitched banners from the Stylish Shapes Dies 

M next card features another animal image from the DSP. 

Of course I added more of that Raindrop Paper for the Background.  The focal image from the DSP was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies and was matted using the scalloped circle from the same die set.

Next up, I used the dies to cut out the Bunny and Turtle and added them directly over more of the DSP.

I hand cut a hill using the daisy design of the DSP and layered it over the Raindrop DSP.  Super simple card but the animals are just adorable!

My last card used the daisy design of the DSP as my complete background.

I added the Bunny die cut from the DSP and just added the sentiment cut out using more of the Stylish Shapes Dies for the stitched circle and the banner behind it.  

I hope this gives you some ideas for cards using this awesome suite of products!  I absolutely love everything about this bundle and DSP!!

Have a blessed day!  To continue on, just click the name directly under mine!

OSAT Shabby Chic or Boho Blog Hop February 2023

 Hello and Welcome to the February 2023 One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Shabby Chic or Boho!  I decided to go with Boho for my Card and Tag and used the Plentiful Plants and the Perfect Plants Dies!  

I used a much softer color palette than usual but I really love how it turned out.  The card base was Pool Party, the background was Basic White embossed with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing folder and adhered to another layer of Basic White.  The sentiment was stamped with Pear Pizzazz Ink on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock.

I love the natural tones along with the white crinkled seam binding and linen thread.  I added three adhesive-backed milky dots to finish it off.

The inside turned out super cute as well.  The natural weave layer behind the plant was a die cut from the Share a Milkshake Die Set.

My tag was cut from the Tailor Made Tag Dies.

OSAT Fresh Finds Blog Hop January 2023 Fun Fold Card using the Framed Florets Bundle and Favored Flowers DSP


Hello and Welcome to the January 2023 One Stamp At A Time Fresh Finds Blog Hop!  I'm super excited to be taking some time to stamp and create this year using the new January - April 2023 Mini Catalog and the 2023 SALE-a-bration selections!  Today's card is a Angled Cut Joy Fold Card.

To me the star of this beautiful card is the Favored Flowers DSP!  The card base is a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Basic White Card base scored at 4-1/4".  To get your diagonal cut, you will need to align the top front of the card base at the 4-1/4" score line and the bottom of the front at the outer corner on the blade track at the same time to make your cut.  The angled DSP is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece that is cut the same way.  I added one of the cuts to the bottom flap and the other piece to the inside of the card at the top.  The small top fold card added to the center was also Thick Basic White and measures 3-1/4" x 8-1/2" and is scored at 4-1/4".  The DSP for the front of that measured 3" x 4".  

The card opens by raising the top of the small card and then opening the flap of the angle cut.

I added a piece of the angled cut DSP to the inside of the front flap as well but that's totally optional.

OSAT Blog Hop September Garden Party with Stampin' Up True Beauty Bundle Sept 8, 2022

 Hello and Welcome to the September 2022 One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  If you've already been hopping, thanks so much for continuing on.  If you started at my blog, please make sure that you click the blog roll at the bottom of this post so you can check out all of the fabulous inspiration!  This month's theme is Garden Party with the Color Palette listed below!

We were to use at least two of the colors in this color plaette!  I can tell you how excited I was that I was able to use all of the colors!  Actually the Cajun Craze was just brushed into the already inked up flower stamp with Crushed Curry... but I used it!

What I absolutely LOVE about the True Beauty Stamp Set is the beautiful built in texture of the stamps.  If you aren't a fan of coloring in images, this is the stamp set for you!  I also love the trellis background die that is part of the coordinating die set!  

Also, the font is beautiful on the sentiments!  

For the coordinating tag, I used the Celebrations Tag Dies to the tag.  The tag will hold a gift card or you can attach it to a gift!

For the back of the tag, I stamped the To and From with the coordinating Celebrate with Tags Stamp Set.  This tag bundle is awesome and has so many possibilities!!

Ringed with Nature Bundle - The Polly Brown Card!

 Hi There!  I have a fun card that I made with the gorgeous Ringed with Nature Bundle and Rings of Love DSP!  I call this one my Polly Brown Card  because my BFF, Polly, LOVES toadstools!  She remembers drawing them when she was younger and is always drawn to them!  As soon as I saw this bundle and coordinating Sale-a-bration DSP, I knew I needed it!

How fun is this coordinating DSP?  The wood ring was cut from the DSP and embossed with the coordinating embossing folder!  The stems of the mushrooms/toadstools were cut from more of the wood ring DSP.  The top of the mushrooms were cut out in Basic White.  I used a blending brush and Poppy Parade and Sweet Sorbet ink to color them in.  I splattered them with White Paint to add the spots on them.  I also did some splatters with Evening Evergreen Ink.  The cardbase was Parakeet Party with a Evening Evergreen mat for the DSP layer.  The stitched square is from the Stylish Shapes Dies in Parakeet Party and was also matted in Everning Evergreen.  Of course it wouldn't be a Tina card without some twine, ribbon, or in this case Linen Thread.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina

OSAT Blog Hop - Time to Saleabrate! July 2022


Hello and Welcome to the July 2022 One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop featuring products from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure!  These are products you can get free with a $50 or $100 purchase from Stampin' Up!  If you have already been hopping along, thank you so much for continuing on.  If you are starting at my blog, you will definitely want to take the hop and check out all of the awesome inspiration from some amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators!  

For my card and project today, I used 2 products from Sale-A-Bration.  The first product is the amazing Rings of Love 12"x12" DSP (free with a $50 purchase) for the background of my card and the Belly Band and background of the focal image on my treat holder.  The second product that I used are Tree Lot Dies (free with a $100 purchase)!  I absolutely LOVE these dies and they coordinate with the Trees for Sale Stamp Set in the July - December 2022 Mini Catalog!  

Isn't the background of the beautiful Rings of Love DSP gorgeous!  I love the watercolored look!  

The focal panel was cut from the Rings of Love DSP with a strip of Basic White at the bottom, using a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink using my Stamparatus so that I could ensure I got a good dark sentiment image. The Christmas trees were stamped in Garden Green Ink and the detail stamp was added in Evening Evergreen Ink to match the Evening Evergreen Cardbase.  The poles, sign, and tree bases were all stamped in Soft Suede Ink.  I added the adorable little dog stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink... he totally looks like our Black Lab!

I finished up the inside really simply.  I may add another sentiment inside later!

My Belly Band for the Scalloped Kraft Treat Box was made using more of the Rings of Love DSP along with  Basic White and Rings of Love DSP Stitched Circles from the Stylish Shapes Dies!  

For the treat box, I decided to just use the Tree Lot Dies to make my trees.  I love both looks... stamped and die cut as well as die cut only.  I love the detail dies for the die cut trees!
