OSAT Blog Hop - The Great Outdoors!


Hello and Welcome to the June 2022 Edition of the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  This month's theme is the Great Outdoors!  I absolutely love Masculine cards and all things Nature, so this month will be one of my favorites!  If you have already been hopping, thank you for continuing on!  If you are starting with my blog, please make sure that you hop all the way through for some amazing inspiration!!

I absolutely adore the Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set!  It is perfect for masculine cards and has awesome sentiments in great mixed fonts!

I  accented my Crumb Cake card base with Pretty Prints DSP in Bermuda Bay.  Of course I had to add a few splatters with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  The stamp set has amazing art work whether you stamp it on watercolor paper like I did on this card and use a water painter to fill in or create the grounding or stamp as intended as I did on the inside of my card!

The artwork on these Wildlife images is just so well done!  

I love these Peekaboo Treat Bags.  They are perfect for a little treat or to use as a gift card holder as I did.  This Kraft treat bag is perfect for a masculine project because you can add a simple tag using the Tailor Made Tags Dies and you are done!  Sometimes the simplest things are the cutest!

Thanks so much for hopping along!  To continue, please click the name directly under mine on the below blog roll!  Blessings, Tina

Masculine Card with Brewed For You Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

 Hi there!  It's Monday and another chance for a great week!  I finally got a chance to play with the super cute Brewed For You Bundle!  It is sooo much fun!  Here's a card I made with it and I'm sure I'll be sharing a few more in the coming weeks!

The fun fold is super easy to make.  You start with a regular A2 card base but add another fold to the front flap of the card.  Measurements are 8-1/2" x 5-1/4", scored on the 8-1/2" side at 4-1/4" and 2-1/8".  My color combination on this one was Just Jade (retired),  Crumb Cake and Basic White for the cardstock... except for a very small scrap of Early Espresso!  I added some Evening Evergreen DSP.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for all but the foam that was stamped in Smoky Slate.  Of course I used one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies on the front of my Fun Fold Card.   The stitched circle is from the new Stylish Shapes Dies... such a fabulous set!

I added more Crumb Cake Cardstock to the inside to write on.  I love using a light color other than White or Ivory to the inside of a card!  The outline of the glass was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the liquid fill in stamp was stamped in Daffodil Delight.

Have a fabulous week!  Blessings, Tina

More of the New 2022-2024 Stampin' Up! In Colors!

 Hello and Happy Mid-May to you!  I have been loving the new Stampin' Up! In Colors so I thought I'd share a few cards I've made featuring the In Color DSP/Cardstock and Inks.  Oh, and perhaps a few new stamp sets as well!!!

This first card features Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide as well as the Sending Smiles and Charming Sentiments Bundles!  I absolutely love the flowers from Sending Smiles!  It has some amazing sentiments as well but I was really feeling this beautiful birthday sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Bundle on this one!

This pretty Birthday Card is in Starry Sky and Parakeet Party and features the amazing Charming Sentiments Bundle!  Not only did the CharmingSentiments have the amazing sentiment and coordinating die to cut it out... it also had the candle dies for this!

My third and final card for today is in Starry Sky, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide.  It features the Charming Sentiments  and the Ranunculus Romance Bundles.  I love the images from the Ranunculus Romance Stamp Set but the dies are also amazing... including the die that cut the spiral edge from the left side of the focal panel.

You may have noticed a pattern in that all of my cards were at least partially using the Charming Sentiments Bundle.   This stamp and die set are on the top of my Must Have List!  I knew as soon as I saw the catalog that I had to have them!  

Have a blessed week and take time to get crafty if you can!   

Blessings, Tina

Not only do I adore this bundle, but these new 2022 - 2024 In Colors are amazing!!  I used Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party for today's projects!

In addition to the New Cardstock and Ink Colors, I used the In Color DSP and Baker's Twine Combo Pack.  I loved having the twine in all of the new In Colors!  Oh and can I just say I am sooooo happy to have the New Stylish Shapes Dies with their awesome stitched look!

I added a strip of the DSP on the bottom of the Inside layer as well.

I made a little Tea Bag Favor to go with my card.  When I cut the heart out of the little tag, I added it next to the sentiment on the inside of the card.... no since wasting it!

OSAT Blog Hop Blooms with Stampin' Up! Cactus Cuties!


Hi There and Welcome to the One Stamp At A Time March 2022 Blog Hop!  This month we are celebrating Blooms!  There are so many fabulous flower and bloom stamp sets but I chose to use the Cactus Cuties because it's one of my current favorites!  

These pots and cacti are just so cute! 

I loved using the scallop die cut from the Scalloped Contours Dies as a little shelf.  The background DSP is from the Heart and Home DSP pack... I love that one side of each of the patterns has gray and white woodgrain designs!

I finished off the inside very simply.  

For my 3D project I made a lip balm holder..

This little lip balm holder was super easy to make.  Basic Gray cardstock cut 3-1/8 x 2-3/4 and scored on the short side at 5/8, 1-1/4, 1-7/8, and 2-1/2.  On the long side, score at 5/8".  Cut up at the score lines at the bottom 5/8"and miter the edges.  You can use Seal plus or tear and tape to adhere the bottom folds in and along the thin edge of the little box.

You could add a little tag on it to personalize it if you'd like.

OSAT Blog Hop Slim Shady - Slim Line Card featuring the Hello Ladybug Bundle


Good Morning and welcome to the One Stamp At A Time February 2022 Slim Shady Blog Hop!  Do you love the super trendy Slim Line Cards?  If so, you will LOVE all of the Amazing Inspiration that you will get along this hop! I chose to use the super cute Hello Ladybug Bundle along with the Circle Layering Dies, Forever Flourishing Dies and the Medium Daisy Punch on my card today!

I started off with an 8-1/2" x 7" piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock, scored at 3-1/2" on the 7" side for my Slim Line Card Base!  I layered on a 3-3/8" x 8-3/8" panel of Real Red Cardstock.  I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut 4 circles out of the focal panel of 3-1/4" x 8-1/4" piece of Pattern Party DSP.  I used scraps of Basic White Cardstock to stamp two of the Lady Bugs that coordinate with the Lady Bug Builder Punch using Real Red and Memento Tuxedo Black Inks.  I stamped 6 of the Daisy Images onto more scraps of Basic White cardstock and used the Medium Daisy Punch to punch them out.  I offset a layer onto another layer of a daisy to make 3 fuller daises.  I used another scrap of Basic White to stamp the other Lady Bug Image from the set using the same Inks.  Using my Granny Apple Green Dark Blends, I added some ground/grass to the bottom of the walking Ladybug image!  I used the light Pool Party Blends Marker to fill in the background.  The sentiment in one of the smaller circles was stamped with the three small flower stamp from the stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on another scrap of Basic White Cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped over the floral image in Real Red Ink.  I again used the light Pool Party Blends marker to lightly color around the sentiment and flowers.  In a larger scrap of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the large leaf image in Granny Apple Green and again lightly colored around the image in the light Pool Party Blends marker.   Finally I used the Forever Flourishing Dies to cut out some leafy branches in Granny Apple Green.  For one of the circle backgrounds I only colored in a Pool Party Blends background and added part of the leafy branch die to it.  I added all of the background scraps behind the circles with scotch tape to the back of the Pattern Party layer.  Once I was happy with the placement of the inside of the circles, I added the two stamped and punched ladybugs, added some of the Granny Apple Green Leafy Branches and the Double Layered Daisies.  I added three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the Daisies.  A small Brushed Brass Butterfly was added to the sentiment circle and two of the larger Brushed Brass Butterflies was added over the sentiment circle.  To finish off the card front, I used the Black and White Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack along the left side of the card front adding two small pieces of scrap ribbon (Real Red Ruffled Ribbon and Black and White Gingham Ribbon) prior to tying into a knot.  


For the inside of the card, I layered 3" x 8" Basic White Cardstock onto a 3-1/4" x 8-1/4" panel of Real Red Cardstock.  I stamped two daisies in Daffodil Delight onto the bottom of the card front and added a small piece of the leafy branch from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  On another scrap of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped two more Daisies and punched them out with the Medium Daisy Punch to offset layer onto the stamped daisies.  The inside sentiment is from the Sunny Sentiments Stamp Set and was stamped in Real Red Ink.

For my Treat Holder, I used one of the Sweet Little Boxes and added layers of Real Red Cardstock and Pattern Party DSP to match the card.  I added one of the Leafy branches cut from the Forever Flourishing Dies and another of the stamped and punched Lady Bugs to again match the Slim Line Card.  I finished it off by adding a small bow of the Black and White Twine.  All of the products used will be added below the Blog Roll.
