OSAT Blog Hop – Throwback Thursday

Hi there.  Welcome to the September OSAT Blog Hop!  Maybe you came here by way of the talented Melissa Davies’ blog or you started out right here.  Either way, welcome, I am glad to have you. This month’s hop theme is Throwback Thursday.  The idea was to find an old card or project that we made and use is as inspiration for a project today.  I searched back in my pictures and found a card I had made just over five years ago, just one month before becoming a demonstrator:Since this photo was snapped way before I was sharing much on social media of my cards so, I get a pass for how crappy it is, right?  Phew, good.  I remember getting this flower stamp set, it was a promotion and you got it FREE when you made a purchase one month.  Any flower is perfect for this stamping technique call triple stamping.  This technique video was published the month before I made the card above…I wonder if I watched it back then?

I decided to pull out the stamp set that I have been obsessed with lately, Painted Harvest.  Do you have it yet?  Oh, the pretty projects that come from this set:This stamp set is full of watercolory stamp goodness.  I have been obsessed with the sunflower stamp and decided it was a fabulous option for this Throwback Thursday project.  A great color combo was where I needed to start:

This color combo turned into this:I am seriously dying for these sunflowers.  I mean SERIOUSLY!  I started out using Soft Suede to stamp the flower centers.  Next I used Crushed Curry for the larger portion of the flower and Cajun Craze for the smaller, more detailed flower stamp.  The stamped layers are Very Vanilla and the card base and mats are Dapper Denim.There is so much dimension in these stamped sunflowers yet they are still dainty, soft.  I love the way that the images just spill over one layer to another.  That is the magic of the triple stamping technique.I paired the card with one of my favorite new items out of our Holiday Catalog, the Mini Pizza Boxes.  You get 8 of them for just $6!  They are perfect for small treats or a collection of 3×3 mini cards and envelopes!

Hope you enjoyed today’s projects.  Next on the hop is Jessie Holton.  I can’t wait to see what they put together for us today.  Click the next button to find out right now:

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop – August 2017 Giftable Greetings

It’s time for another installment of A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! If you haven’t hopped with us before, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have taken the monthly subscription kit, Paper Pumpkin, and turned it into something other than it was designed for. If you want more details about Paper Pumpkin or subscribing, you can check it out here.

If you came here from my sweet friend Monika Davis or you just started on my blog, welcome.  We hope you enjoy the projects and make some of them yourself.  So sit back, enjoy, and make sure you visit all of the blogs to check out what the other artists made for you!

This month’s kit is phenomenal!  I seriously love it JUST as it is, so I wasn’t willing to start working on a project until I was already done making the kit.  I had to only use the leftovers…adding in a few supplies from my stash.  The kit comes with the supplies to make eight (8) all-occasions cards.  The best part?  The kit also includes a gorgeous box, with an acetate lid, to bundle all of the cards up into, for gift giving!  Adorable!

Since I could only work with the leftovers, I went to my paper stash and grabbed a Thick Whisper White card base and a sheet of Calypso Coral.  From there I worked with the stamps, a few inks and the Layering Ovals framelits to come up with these:

I created an ombre look by using the flower stamp from the kit, along with the Stamp-a-ma-Jig and a few stamped off ink colors: Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Powder Pink.

I used some leftover bits of the kit striped ribbon to accent the “Congrats” sentiment.  I cut both the sentiment and the Gold Glimmer paper using the Layering Ovals framelits.  The card was finished off with some leftover Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and a couple flower and leaf accessories, also from the kit.

I decided that this little congrats card needed a little bag to pair with.  Something just the right size for a gift card, a cute pair of earrings, a friends favorite sweets or a slew of other things.

This bag was made using the Gift Bag Punch Board and some of the kits remaining pieces. I did add the gold glimmer oval and the Gold Binder clip that is holding it all together!  This little label is swoon worthy…

That’s all of the fun I have over here today!  Now it’s time to hop on over to Kelly Acheson’s blog and she what she has in store for us today.  I am sure it won’t disappoint!  Click the next button to see her creation:

Help Me Celebrate My 5 Year Stampiversary!

I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years since I started getting a discount on my favorite coordinating craft supplies!  August 26th is my “Official” 5 Year Stampiversary so I thought, why not have a MONTH LONG Stampiversary Celebration?  Doesn’t that sound fun?  Of course it does…

If you don’t know how I ended up with this gig, which I lovingly call my “Side Hustle” these days, check out my “About Me” page HERE.  Over the five years, it grew to what it is today.  I currently hold three regularly scheduled events every month and also offer hostess events and team events.  To add to that, I never thought that I would be on my way to earning my first Incentive Trip!  (If you are new to this term, Stampin’ Up! sends their top demonstrators on a trip of a lifetime every year.  They recently returned from Thailand!).  When I learned where the 2018 Incentive Trip was headed to, I knew that I had to earn that trip!  We will be headed to Alaska!

I can’t wait to earn that trip and take my husband along with me.  There are two months left to qualify and I will be working hard!  I am on track but still have plenty of work to do.  But most importantly, before work, we must get back to this celebration I referenced in the title of my post!  I want to give YOU presents for helping me make it to my 5-Year Stampiversary, to say Thank You!

It was a struggle to figure out what this celebration was going to be.  There were so many options.  We could have a party…no…no party.  I went through a list in my head then thought, every anniversary needs presents…and I noticed that the traditional gift for a fifth anniversary is WOOD!  Stampin’ Up! has so many fun and amazing wood themed products, too.  So here is the WOOD that you can get for celebrating my Stampiversary along with me:So that is how we celebrate together!  With WOOD!  I am so thankful for each and every one of you that has been a part of this amazing journey!

Here’s the fine but important print:

  1. This is a promotion by and through One Crafty Sister, only.
  2. There are no substitutions.
  3. To participate in the Stampiversary Special EMAIL your order to [email protected]
  4. Freebies for over $50 orders will be shipped directly to you with your product order by Stampin’ Up!
  5. You Mini-Sampler will be mailed separately from me.

So off to gather all the fun wood for presents!  Can’t wait to send you yours!

xxoo

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop – July 2017 Positively Picturesque

It’s time for another installment of A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! If you haven’t hopped with us before, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have taken the monthly subscription kit, Paper Pumpkin, and turned it into something other than it was designed for. If you want more details about Paper Pumpkin or subscribing, you can check it out here.

Maybe you came here by way of the super talented Carolynn Sander, or you just started here at my blog. Either way, welcome. We hope that you enjoy the projects and make some of them yourself. So sit back, enjoy, and make sure you visit all of the blogs to check out what the other artists made for you!

This month’s kit is a great, all cards, set that is good for so many occasions and they are super trendy.  I see options to just say hello, send congratulations, tell someone that you love them and more.  I visualize welcome new baby cards in there as well.

I was dying to make an itsy bitsy teeny weeny 3D project to go along with a LOVE card. I have been wanting to make a mini milk carton but I didn’t have a tutorial on hand. I have a couple go to experts in miniature 3D’s so I did some investigatory research for the perfect tutorial. I found it on Sam Donald’s YouTube channel. You can see it here.

I started out with a base of Soft Sky cardstock, and using the tutorial I shared above I made the mini carton. It was REALLY easy! Do you recognize the design of the Designer Series Paper? Maybe you don’t because it is the inside of the envelopes that come in the kit! I cut them out with the square Stitched Shapes framelit and adhered them on all 4 sides of the carton.

I used a sponge dauber to color the LOVE wood accent, which was part of the kit. I didn’t want it to be too dark so with the sponge dauber I could control the amount of ink that soaked into the wood. What you can’t see in the pictures is that I have it all shiny with Wink of Stella!

I masked one of the stamps to get the “you,” all by itself, for the little sentiment banner, and paired it with “friend”. Sealed with the Library Clip and finished off with a Lemon Lime Twist Bitty Bow, it’s ready for gift giving!

Seriously, can’t you see a dozen of these at a party or shower, one at each seat? Favors at a wedding, you name it, the opportunities are endless! I can’t wait to put some sweet treats or a dainty present in this adorable carton! What do you see fitting down in there?

Well, now it’s time to hop on over to Rick Adkins’s blog and she what he cooked up for us today.  I am sure it won’t disappoint!  Click the next button to see his creation:

Sharing Some Christmas in July for GDP096

Hello!  Welcome to my creative blog, One Crafty Sister.  Today I am taking part in the Global Design Project challenge GDP096.  The challenge this week was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) the talented Tanja Kolar:

You could choose to use the same stamp set, the colors, or the layout, whatever inspired you from this beautiful card of Tanja’s.  I loved the layout and it immediately made me think of a new stamp set that I needed to play with!

The Carols of Christmas bundle, which will be in our Holiday catalog coming September 1st, is going to be released one month early, making it available on August 1st!!  It is wonderful for stunning simple or elaborate Christmas cards.  My favorite part is that it has nice, large sentiments for the front of your card.

The large sentiment, Deck the Halls, was stamped in Tranquil Tide.  I thought it had just enough green in it to make for a fun and modern color combo, paired with Cherry Cobbler.  The sentiment was cut out on the Big Shot with the largest of the stitched square dies and layered with a Cherry Cobbler scalloped square.

How did I get that little banner on top?  I stamped the sentiment again on a scrap, with Cherry Cobbler.  Then I trimmed away the Deck and the Halls.  I was left with a little strip.  I then used the Classic Label punch to create the flagged ends!

Everything was popped up on dimensionals, including those adorable little ornaments hanging down from the sentiment.  Best part about these ornaments?  They are just one stamp and one die cut, to stamp and cut all three at the same time!  Super easy and hassle free!  They were finished off with tiny pears.

So what do you think?  Do you just love that big bold sentiment?  You can get that stamp set for FREE through the end of the month by purchasing the Starter Kit!  Not just that but $72 of bonus product in addition to selecting $125 for just $99 plus tax (no shipping).  Your Starter Kit gets you a minimum 20% discount on anything and everything through the end of the year!

Don’t forget, also, that there is only one more week of Bonus Days!  Shop in July and receive a $5 Bonus Days coupon (one $5 coupon for every $50 you spend) to shop in August!

My customers also receive a special treat in the mail for all online orders.  Use the following Host Code on orders less than $150.  If your order is $150 or more you will receive your own Stampin’ Rewards and the Host Code is not required.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment so I know you were here!

Happy Stampin’,

Jennifer xoxo
