WWYS #90: Paisleys & Posies

Hey everybody and happy Monday!  I'm back today with another What Will You Stamp challenge and this week we are featuring Paisleys & Posies. I've been sick lately (pneumonia) and haven't been able to get my stamp on... which means I am way behind on all of my projects. I had to create today's card on the double so that I could turn it in for my design team contribution. Thank goodness for Stampin' Ups! amazing card kits! I pulled out my Cottage Greetings kit which I love-so why haven't I put it together yet-and used pieces from the kit to make my card. Here's what I came up with.

I really like this sentiment from the Paisley & Posies set. I can think of more than a few people in my life who deserve this card. I used one of the 5"x5" card bases from the set along with the wooden background piece and preprinted flower piece. I stamped the sentiment and layered it over a beautiful copper foil piece cut using the Paisley Framelit Dies.


Here's a look at the whole Paisleys & Posies stamp set. If you have a few minutes please head over to the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the design team has come up with. 


Thanks for stopping by my blog and have an amazing day! If you have any questions please let me know.

OSAT Blog Hop: Let It Snow


Good Morning and welcome to this month's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop! Today we've got eighteen fabulous crafters from around the world sharing "Let It Snow" themed cards and projects with you. You may be starting the hop here or you may have just hopped over to my blog from the super talented Marisa Gunn! Either way thanks for stopping by! Now let's get to it-here's my card...

I decided to use a set called Snow Place and make a shaker card with some mica flakes and snowflake sequins that I found at my local Dollar Tree.

It's hard to tell in the picture but this cozy little penguin has a hat that sparkles with Dazzling Details glitter. 

I made two versions of my card and on each one I oriented the embossed background in a different direction. I think I like this second orientation better as it adds more interest to the top of the card. On the first card I used silver ribbon and a twine bow.  On this second card I used Pool Party ribbon and a retired snowflake embellishment from last year's Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog. Yeah, it's retired, but just too pretty to leave wasting away in my stash of beautiful things. I am preparing for a big holiday craft fair so I'm using the fair as an opportunity to create with some of my retired but absolutely beautiful products.

For my projects I made candy bar holders that I plan to sell at the craft fair too. I've made over twenty of these in different designs and I'll show you just a few of them today... All of the stamp sets that I've used are from the current holiday catalog and I just love them!



I wanted to make some of these that were specifically for the Christmas holiday. 

Here's another Christmas one. I love the sentiment on this one!

This one could be used be used for most of the winter holidays (not just Christmas) or even just for some fun treat gifting.

Here's a close up of that sentiment that I absolutely love. I added some holly berries and leaves and watercolored them to add some pretty color without overwhelming the sentiment.

On the bottom I made sure the recipient knows that this is a "Special Delivery." Pretty much if you're getting candy it's a special delivery.

And this is what the lucky person who receives this treat box will find inside... Chocolate!



Here are a few more... The cool thing is that most small candy bars fit in these boxes. I've Kit Kat bars inside some of them too.


That's all for today folks! Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoyed what I had to share. Please keep on hopping along with the OSAT crew to see all of the incredible projects the rest of the designers have made. Just click the next button to continue on to Renee's blog!

Have an amazing day!
