OSAT Blog Hop | Bring on the Birthdays

Welcome, friends! I am so excited to be participating in another round of the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! This month is all about the birthday's! It's such a great topic because it leaves everything open and up to those in the blog hop, and I have to say, I am excited as ever to share my projects with you this week!

For this month's projects I had a special friend in mind (whom I won't mention by name because I don't want to ruin the surprise!). She is a classic soul who likes pretty things (but honestly, who doesn't?), so I created this special gift just for her.


I just LOVE how elegant this turned out! Night of Navy and Silver Glimmer Paper are literally a match made in paper Heaven!


For the card itself, I went with a no-bulk Shaker Card. This means that when I created the window, I did not use any foam adhesive strips, but rather our Tear & Tape Adhesive instead. With this technique, there is still a little give for the sequins to move around, but I love that some of them also stay in place - especially at the top!


For this card, I used the Well Said Bundle (Well Said Stamp Set and coordinating Well Written Framelit Dies). You'll find this bundle on page 27 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. It the perfect time to purchase this bundle if you haven't already because you only have until March 31 to earn your FREE Sale-A-Bration products!


I stamped right on top of the Window Sheets for this card using StazOn Ink. This can be tricky to do because sometimes you aren't presented with a full, clean image. I tend to mostly use my Photopolymer stamp sets because then I am able to match the image or words back up with the stamped image to get a clean sentiment in case it does't work well the first time.


The window itself was created using the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies, which is also in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue (and one of my favourite products ever!).


You may notice that the 'birthday' sentiment is raised up pretty high. This is because I adhered the Silver Glimmer Paper to some white foam for added dimension. I recently saw Jennifer McGuire do this in one of her videos, which whom inspired this card design.


You'll want to make sure that if you do use two window sheets to create a full 'window', that you will need to create a little note card on the inside of the card as shown below. This will allow the sentiment and images on the front of the card to be shown, but also provide a space for you to write your birthday message.


As much as I love the card, this little basket full of bling is probably my favourite thing! My friend Dawn Bourgette made one a little while ago and I just had to make my own. It's just so elegant and suits the gift so well! I first lined the inside with half of a sheet of white tissue paper and then set the bracelet and two sets of earnings on top.


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!



I used Night of Navy Cardstock for the basket as well, and then used the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to add the elegant detail all around. I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere it and that worked nicely for this purpose.


Here is a close-up so you can see more detail.


The handle is held on by a heart-shaped brad that I had on hand, which worked perfectly for this project.



I am honestly thinking I'll just make one for myself just because! Hehe. Oh, and you can't really tell from the photos, but I added a hint of Wink of Stella glitter on the white leaves throughout.


I do hope you loved today's projects. If I inspired you to create your own version, I'd love to see it! Just use the hashtag #sweetpaperstudios when you post it online so I can take a look!
