OSAT May Flowers Blog Hop


Hey there!! Happy Thursday to you!!! It is the second Thursday of the month and we should all what that means by now! It is the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop! If you got to by way of Alisa Tilsner her creations are always so lovely!
I have to be honest I am not sure how I pulled it all together for this hop. You see, this past Saturday we had an EF2 Tornado hit here in Wray, Colorado. Well not only did it hit in Wray it hit the property that we live on and destroyed a friends house up north! This all happened while we were in Nebraska!!! It was pretty scary not knowing what were going to come home to even though we knew that our house was okay! It has made for quite an interesting week! What was my silver lining you ask? MY Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Catalog PRE-ORDER came!!!! So everything I have for you is NEW!!! Wooty WOOT!

So my creations this month started with the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit! This kit is absolutely adorable. I just love the colors!!! It comes with the cute cellophane bag and the striped box shown here but it also has a tiny acetate box and a gift bag to create as well! The colors really caught my eye on this. It is the NEW Emerald Envy and Peakaboo Peach as well as Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Whisper White with Gold Accents.

So to coordinate with the Perfectly Wrapped Kit, I started my card with a vivid base of Emerald Envy. To keep with the scheme of things I matted the Black and White striped paper from the NEW Pop of Pink DSP with the Peakaboo Peach. My Scribbles are a new Thinlit! They are called Scribbles Thinlits. I used the precision plate to cut these out. They came out of the dies with ease using our Die Brush! I created my flower using two of the dies to adhere this to the NEW Flirty Flamingo card stock I used spray adhesive then fussy cut the outer edge. I stole the leaves from my Perfectly Wrapped kit and added them to my flower. My Gold border on the left hand side was also from the scribble thinlits simply cut from our Gold Foil paper! To adhere these I used a two way glue pen. Ooops I almost for my banner!! Obviously it is new too! It is a great little bundle available in the new catalog! The stamp set is called Thoughtful Banners and coordinates with the new Duet Banner Punch. This bundle is going to be super versatile! I stamped the banner outline with Emerald Envy ink and the sentiment with our Archival Black! What card of mine wouldn't be complete with some lovely sequins that I still have from the Hello December kit!

These are the Perfectly Wrapped Projects stamped with the Perfectly Wrapper stamp set! If you look below I gave you a closer look at the beautiful flower!

Phew! Seems like a lot of work right? Honestly, half a day with all the items made!
