OSAT Blog Hop | Purses, Poppies, and Paris

Well hello there, friend! Happy New Year! I am excited to kick off the new year with a One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop! It's time for new beginnings as they say so today we're showcasing Purses, Poppies, and Paris! This is to say that we're showcasing all things from the new Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up!

There are some great new products in the new Mini Catalogue and once again Stampin' Up! does not disappoint! Today I am using the brand new Forever Blossoms Bundle for which I was able to make a beautiful wedding gift in the form of a handmade card and matching money wallet. What's also great about this is that when you purchase this bundle, you also get to pick a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! What is Sale-A-Bration? Read on my friend and you will soon find out!

If this is your first time stopping by my blog, I want to thank you for being here! I do my best to provide you with inspiration, tips, and tricks, so I hope you find it helpful. You can view my Video Library HERE. You can also subscribe to my newsletter and blog updates so you don't miss out on future posts!

Here are the project details:

1. Forever Blossoms Bundle (153781). Both the stamped images and the sentiments come from the Forever Blossoms Bundle. Here's a closer look at this gorgeous set.

When you purchase this beautiful bundle in my online shop, you qualify for a free Sale-A-Bration item. There are two reward level options.

2. Colour Combination. I used Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.

3. Watercolour Pencils. I used the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Watercolour Pencils, along with an Aqua Painter, to colour in the flowers and leaves. The floral stem is coloured lightly with the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil only (no Aqua Painter was for this part).

4. 3D Effect. I stamped, coloured, and die cut two extra flowers to overlay on top of the floral stem to create a 3D look. I think this turned out super pretty and looked great given the 3D florals at the bottom of the card.

5. The Small Details. The scalloped edge on the Money Wallet was created with a die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and the 'Always and Forever' band was created using the Everyday Label Punch.

Here is a closer look at the Money Wallet:

I just loved how these two projects came together, don't you? I can't wait to gift them to a happy couple!
