OSAT Blog Hop: #simplestamping


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing my project for this month's One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop.  This month's theme is about Simple Stamping.  For my projects today I picked the All Adorned Stamp Set (a 2nd Release Saleabration Item) and the Meant to Be Stamp Set (from the Occasions Catalog) along with the matching Be Mine Stitched Framelits.  Here's a look at my projects.

I started by creating the base of my card.  I used one of the large stitched hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits and cut out a heart out of the 4 1/4 x 11 thick whisper white cardstock that I planned to use as my card base.  I stamped the out side of the card using three of the heart stamps from the Meant to Be Cling Stamp Set.  Next I closed the card and stamped the sentiment from the All Adorned Stamp Set in the center of the heart opening.

I varied the sizes of the hearts along with the placement so that it would draw the eye around the card and create interest.  For the inside of the card I added a strip of the All My Love Designer Series paper and two 1/4" strips of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  These little touches help to tie in the paper and color of the gift bag.  Here's a closer look at the inside.

For the 3d project this month I created a stitched gift bag.  This gift bag looks a lot harder then it really is.  This gift bag is actually very simple to create but looks so much harder than it is.  Here's a look at the gift bag.

This is a medium version of the gift bag and uses to pieces of cardstock along with some designer series paper.  I recycled the stitched heart from the card base and used it on the front of the bag.  I repeated the same stamping from the inside of the card.  During my Facebook Live last night I shared how to create a smaller version of the stitched gift bag.  You can watch the video below about how I created the bag.  The smaller version in the video only uses one sheet of cardstock.

Meant to Be Popped Up Heart Card

Meant to Be Cling Bundle, All My Love Designer Series Paper, Balmy Blue Stampin' Blend Dark, Heart Epoxy Hearts, All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, Rick Adkins

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today, I am going to share with you a card that features products from the All My Love Suite from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  With Valentine's Day right around the corner now's the perfect time to make those last minute cards for your loved ones.  And, why not make it a card that's very special.  My card today is one of those type cards.  It has a special feature that shows that special person just how much you really care.  This simple looking card on the outside has a little special love on the inside.  I know that you are wondering what the inside looks like so I am going to share it with you now.

Tips & Tricks: 

This card looks a lot harder than it really is, and if you have followed my blog you know that's how I roll.  I love cards and projects that look complicated but are quite easy.  I started out with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4) as my card base.  I actually started this card on the inside instead of working on the outside design first.  I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelit dies to cut out a stitched edged heart in Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I used the second die marked in the pictured to cut out the smaller heart from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  I cut 3 hearts to use.  I cut the Lovely Lipstick heart in half and then scored the flirty flamingo cardstock heart and the designer series paper hearts in half.  I folded and burnished the hearts on the score lines.  I then took the designer series paper hearts and glued them to the cardstock hearts.  At this point it was time to put the outside heart pieces together.  I took the center hearts and glued one side to half of the lovely lipstick heart.  Then I glued the other side to the other piece the lovely lipstick heart.  Once they were all together I set them aside to dry.

You can see in the above photo how the heart on the inside stands out from the card base.  Before adding the hearts I had to stamp and add a few pieces of Whisper White Cardstock.  Actually I used two pieces on the inside of the card.   The inside measurements are 3 3/4 x 5.  At this point I could add the heart in the center that would pop up.  

Before adding the card front to the card I had to add a little ribbon from the All my Love Ribbon Combo pack so that I could close the card.  For the outside of the card I added a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock (4 x 5 1/4).  I layered a piece of the all my Love Designer Series Paper (3 3/4 x 5) on the outside.  I added one more Lovely Lipstick heart with the same designer series paper heart on the outside.  I added a sentiment banner (of whisper white) with the sentiment I love our life together.  Depending on what sentiment you put on the inside you could easily make this a wedding card or any other love themed card.  \
