OSAT Blog Hop - Chick Ewe Out!


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing my projects with you from this months One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Chick Ewe Out!  This is proved to be a super fun theme to play with, and I had a lot of fun creating my two projects for you this month.  I used the Welcome Easter Stamp Set from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  I also used some "uneggpected" products as well.  Plus my card for this months hop has an eggcellent surprise.   Here's a look at my projects this month.  

Tips & Tricks: 

To start I designed my card before I figured out my dimensional project.  I started out with a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  I then added a piece of the Dinoroar Designer Series paper; the one with the eggs on it.  I then added a super skinny mat of Whisper White and then another mat of Pretty Peacock cardstock on the outside.  I then added it the card base.  I then added a strip of the Woven Thread Designer series paper to a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  On top of this I added some of the Pretty Peacock Scalloped Ribbon along this piece before adding it to the card base.


Next I stamped the chick and the sheep from the stamp set and colored them in with my watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to smooth out the color.  I then cut out two of the eggs using the egg die from the dino die set.  I added a little color around the edges with my Pineapple Punch Blends.  I stamped the Sweet Friend sentiment on the front of one of the eggs.  I then joined the two eggs with a brad to secure the two pieces together.  Add by doing that it allows the egg to do this.  


Cute right!  Well, I think the 3d project is as cute as the card.  I used the purse die from the Dress to Impress Dies and some Pineapple Punch Cardstock to cut out the purse.  I then cut out one from the same pattern as the card and cut out along the inside of the stitched lines and trimmed it down just a little from the top so that it would fit on the side of the front.  I added a couple of the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots to look as a closer.  Then added the little bunny to the front for a fun unexpected touch.

Hello everyone I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far!  Remember this is hump day and the middle of the work week so not much longer.  I am here with you to share this weeks Facebook Live Mini Class with you and a few tips and tricks along the way.  This week I am featuring the Welcome Easter Stamp Set and will be sharing with you a three different ways to color images.  I actually shared one tip with your earlier today if you missed my post from this morning you can click here and check it out.

During this weeks Facebook Live Mini Class I am going to be making three projects with you to get you ready for  Easter and I am going to share with you three ways to add color to your projects. I based today's class off of the card I shared this morning.  On my post this morning I shared a card using my watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color in the images.  Here's a look at that card.

This Week's Projects: 

For my first project tonight I tried to come up with a way to add color to an image without really having to color.  So I thought about using another stamp set to fill in the color or using one of the Best Dressed Note Cards.


For my next project I made a regular A2 size card using the bunny from the stamp set.  I used the Easter Blessings stamp from Itty Bitty Greetings for the sentiment.  I watercolored the main image of this card with ink and a blender pen.  I thought it was a fun little card and quick way to add some color.  You can go as simple or use as much coloring you would like.  


My finial project for the night was this cute little easter box using the sheep image from the Welcome Easter Stamp Set.  To color my little Ewe I used stampin' blends in Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, and Highland Heather.  This is a really easy box to put together and is a quick project to make to fill with Easter Treats.

Have a Wonderful Easter - Welcome Easter Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute card using the Under My Umbrella and Welcome Easter Stamp Sets.  I created a super cute Easter Card for today's project and I made it rain in the background.  Basically because it seems to rain every Easter here where I live.  At least for part of the day anyways.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks:  

To start off I stamped all the images in Tuxedo Black ink and heat set the ink so that I could do a little coloring with my watercolor pencils.  I used both sets of watercolor pencils for the coloring, and once I had everything colored I used my blender pen to moisten the pigment of the pencils to give it a watercolor look.  Once the watercoloring was complete I cut out all the little animals and used the Umbrella Punch to punch out the Umbrellas.  


Next I used the grass die from the Special Day Die Set and the flowers from the Sending Flowers Dies (both are part of the Coordinating Product Release) to cut out the grass and the flowers for my cards.  After that I took a piece of Whisper White and did a little ink blending for the background sky.  After that I took the Basic Pattern Stencils (the Clouds pattern) and stenciled on some darker blue at the bottom of each cloud and whisper white craft ink on the top to add a little variation.  Then I stamped some rain drops in Balmy Blue ink and attached the grass die cut.  I added a little grass that that I stamped to this area to add a little extra to it.   


To finish off my card I added the cut out animals and umberas along with the flowers to the card front.  To make it so the tulips were not floating in air I added stems to each with my granny apple green stampin' write marker, and some of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the center of the flowers.   I added the sentiment on a piece of whisper white cardstock stamped in Balmy Blue and cut it out with \the banner die from the Sending Flowers Dies.  

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful day.  If you need any of the supplies I used to create this card you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the supply list below.  Make sure you join my this afternoon on my Facebook page for this weeks Facebook Live mini Class featuring the Welcome Easter Stamp Set.
