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!

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!

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!
