OSAT Blog Hop Sale A Brate the Occasion

January 11, 2018 25 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I am once again one of the designers for the OSAT Blog Hop!  I’m thrilled to return to the team.  Today our theme, OSAT Blog Hop Sale A Brate the Occasion is inspired by the two new catalogs that are just over a week old.  If you’re like us — you couldn’t wait to begin to play with some of the new products.  We’ve got loads of inspiration to share, so make sure you check out all of the blogs in today’s hop.

OSAT Blog Hop Sale A Brate the Occasion

 

OSAT Blog Hop Sale A Brate the Occasion using the free Happy Wishes Stamp set

For my creations today, I used the FREE* Happy Wishes Stamp Set.

I love the font — it has the feel of a handwritten note.

And, I love the sentiments themselves — so very versatile!

OSAT blog hop Sale a Brate the Occasion with Happy Wishes card in Flirty Flamingo from theartfulinker.com

I used a Flirty Flamingo cardstock base.

Then, I added a Whisper White layer

followed by a layer of Sweet Soiree Specialty designer paper.

Next, I adhered a strip of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon.

You’ve got to see the ribbon in person to really appreciate the subtle shimmer.

For my focal image, I stamped the large sentiment from Happy Wishes in Flirty Flamingo.

Then, I cut it out by hand.

After layering it onto a piece of Basic Black, I cut it out a second time (yes, really).

After stamping “anniversary”, I added three small pearls inside three small sequins.

At the top, I finished the card with some faux drops.

To create these, I drew various sized dots with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then, I topped each dot with a dome from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

    Great fussy cutting Sara, the sentiment really pops with the black mat. Thanks for the tip on creating faux drops too

      Thanks Pam! The pearls and sequins combo are what happens when the thinking goes something like –“it needs just one more something”.
