OSAT Blog Hop April 2021 Say What - Emphasis On Sentiment


Hi There Crafty Friends!  I'm super excited to be with the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop Team with a Say What Project!  This theme is all about the sentiment and I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to concentrate on for today's card!  I always need Thank You card and my very favorite stamp set "Ornate Thanks" is the perfect set for all types of Thank You sentiments!  I love Photopolymer Stamp Sets especially for sentiments!  This is one set I'll keep forever!

I used my Stampartus to stamp some diagonal sentiments tone-on-tone with just the right placement on my Pool Party background.  After I was pleased with the background stamping, I cut the panel with one of my stitched rectangle dies and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.  That layer was matted with the soon to be retired Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  Next, I used one of my Blending Brushes to ink blend some Pretty Peacock at the top of a strip of Pool Party Cardstock creating a Ombre effect by blending darker at the top of the strip.  Using the Playful Alphabet Dies I cut "THANKS" out once on the Ink Blended Strip and twice more in scraps of Pool Party so that I could build up the word to stand out more on my background.  I used Multipurpose Adhesive to adhere the layers of letters together and then used a T-Ruler to get a straight placement of the letters to adhere to the card panel with more of the glue.  Once all letters were placed, I added some Spritzes of Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for some fabulous Shimmer!

Here's a close of that Shimmery goodness!!  So pretty!  If you haven't tried the Shimmer Paint.. you really need to jump on the band wagon!  So Pretty!  I finished the matted layer off by adding some of the beautiful Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon around the panel tying it a bow on the right side of the card.  The panel was then added to the Pool Party A2 Cardbase with Dimensionals.  Last but certainly not least, I added three of the gorgeous Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.

Finally, I added a little treat holder...

I used the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP along with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies.  The label was punched in Pretty Peacock Cardstock with the Label Me Fancy Punch.  I added a Pool Party Tasteful Labels Diecut stamped with a sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set.  The little flower was from the coordinating Hydrangea Dies.  I added the tag with some Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon and a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem in the middle of the flower.  Super simple and so cute!
