SASummerBlogHopPic2


Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop!! Each Blog will be featuring different product from the Summer Mini. There are 23 amazing stops on this tour! The Blog tour starts at noon EST today and goes through Sunday May 1st!


If you have been following the tour in order you just came from Cindy's Blog Heart's Delight Cards were she featured Itty Bitty Bites didn't she do an awesome job! If your just starting here at my blog just follow around from here. I am stop #6 on the tour. The set I am featuring out of the Summer Mini is Elements of Style! I love this set!!!

1st Project is a Card~

My base is Soft Suede card stock, I used the Cutter Kit to rough up the edges on all of the layers. Next is a piece of Mellow Moss, I stamped the flower in Mellow Moss in the background. I sponged the edges with Mellow Moss. I added a layer of Sahara Sand; using the En Francais Background stamp I inked it in Sahara Sand and stamped on the card stock, I used the scroll imaged from Elements of Style and stamped that in Summer Sun ink. On the bottom of the card stock I used the Eyelet Border Punch. Then I sponged Sahara Sand ink around the edges.

I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the flower in Soft Suede ink; I colored the image in using a Blender Pen and the following ink pads Mellow Moss, Summer Sun, and Soft Suede. Then I stamped the flowers again, colored them, cut them out and popped the up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I then added Crystal Effects to the followers. I sponged Soft Suede around the edges. I placed a piece of Soft Suede card stock behind the Vanilla and then popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. In the upper right hand corner I added a Vintage Brad.

I stamped the saying in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla card stock, I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I punched a Scallop Oval in Soft Suede to place behind it. I then popped that up with a Stampin' Dimensional. On the bottom I added some Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon, tied a bow with Hemp Twine Natural and added a Designer Button Latte to the center. To finish it off I used the Smooch Spritz Log Cabin to give it a shine!

2nd Project 12 x 12 Scrapbook Page~

This is a scrapbook page for my history album of my great, great Aunt. I started by mounting the picture on a piece of Sahara Sand card stock, I used the En Francais  Background stamp I inked it in Sahara Sand and then stamped on the card stock. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. Then I attached it to a piece of Soft Suede card stock. I stamped the flower on the sides using Soft Suede ink. On the left I added the pearls from the Pretties Kit. On the right I added a strip of Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon; at the top I added a Kraft Corduroy Button with a bow from the Hemp Twine Natural. I then hung one Mini Vintage Tags from the button. On the tag I used the En Francais Background stamp, I inked it in Sahara Sand and stamped on the tag. Using a sponge dauber I added Summer Sun ink to the tag. I stamped part of the saying in Soft Suede and then just cut out the Life part and attached with a Stampin' Dimensionals.

Next was the Sahara Sand card stock. I stamped the En Francais image in Sahara Sand ink. I used the scroll part and stamped that in Summer Sun. Using the Tearing Edge I tore the bottom edge. I then sponged Soft Sued ink around the edges. I used the Dusty Durango Marker along with the Color Spritzer to spray Soft Suede around on the page.  I spelled out her name in Mellow Moss card stock using the Big Shot and the SU Timeless Type Alphabet. I stamped the flowers on the letter in Mellow Moss. I cut a piece of Mellow Moss card stock for the next layer. I stamped the flower in Mellow Moss ink and then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I used the Big Shot and Lattice Die and cut out two in Soft Suede to add to the page. Behind that I matted it all on a piece of Soft Suede textured card stock. To finish it off I added one of the hat pins from the pretties kit along with a bow made from the Kraft Taffeta ribbon. Then I took the Smooch Sprtiz Vanilla Shimmer to the hole thing! (NOTE) be sure to cover up your picture before spraying any of the Smooch Spritz.

Directions~

1. You will need a Rectangle Coaster that measures 4" x 5 1/2". Note if you don't have a coaster you can cut heavy chipboard and use.

2. Cut 2 pieces of card stock 4" x 5 1/2" One will be for the front and one for the back. Take the 3/16 Corner Round Punch and round all the corners. Mine was Sahara Sand card stock. I took the Pretty Petals Background Stamp; inked it in Sahara Sand ink and stamped directly onto the card stock.

3. Cut 1 piece of DSP 3" x 4". I used our Sweet Pea DSP.  I took the 3/16 Corner Round Punch and rounded 2 corners only. I snailed it to the Sahara Sand card stock and then using a Sponge Dauber I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

4. Cut 1 piece of card stock 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". Mine was Whisper White I then stamped my sentiment from Define Your Life in Chocolate Chip ink. I then took the Butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly inked in Sahara Sand and stamped onto this piece randomly. I then sponged Chocolate Chip Ink around the edges.

5. I wrapped 1" Double Stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon around the center. I then attached the hole piece to the coaster. I placed the back piece on the back to cover up the ribbon. I added 2 buttons from the Fresh Favorites II at the top left hand side.

6. I stamped one butterfly in Taken w Teal cut it out and sponged the edges with Taken with Teal. I put a Stampin' Dimensional on the back and then added a Designer Button Latte to the center. I then stamped the small butterfly in Old Olive cut it out, wrapped some Linen Thread around it and placed a Stampin' Dimensional to the back.

7. At the top I took an Assortment clip, placed a glue dot on the back added a piece of 1/4 Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon to the top of it and slid my sentiment into the clip then attached to the top of the coaster.

This is a progressive scrapbook page. What does that mean? You start out with a 6x6 page go to a 8 1/2 x 11 page and then to a 12 x 12 page. So I'll start out with the
6x6 page first.

6x6 Page~ The base is Sahara Sand. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. In the corners on the bottom I took the paw stamp from C Is For Cat; stamped in Sahara Sand and then rolled the edges in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped in the two bottom corners. I took the saying inked it in Basic Black and stamped in the center. Next I mounted the photo on Chocolate Chip card stock. I then wrapped Natural Hemp around the bottom and added a Kraft Corduroy Button to the center; tying the hemp through it. To finish it off I took the Photo Corners Punch, punched out a piece in Basic Black and then added a 5/16th Jumbo Brad to the center.

8 1/2 x 11 Page~ The base is Chocolate Chip. I took the fish stamp; inked it in Chocolate Chip and stamped in the upper right hand side three times. I added a piece of Basic Black Card stock to the center. At the top I used some of our On Board Timeless Type Chipboard to spell out my cat's name. Using the Chocolate Chip Craft pad I stamped the paw all over the letters. After it dried I took a Sponge Dauber and inked it with Sahara Sand ink. On the left hand bottom I added 3 Vintage Brads using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing-Tool.  On the right side I punched out another photo corner using the Photo Corners Punch in Basic Black. I set a 5/16 Jumbo Brad in the center. This completes the 8 1/2 x 11 Page.

12 x 12 Page~
The base is Basic Black, I cut a piece of Sahara Sand down to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 to break up the black. Along the edges I stamped the little paw in Sahara Sand ink. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink, I kept the 12 x 12 Page very simple.

Once I put it together I added my extra embellishments to balance out the page. In the upper right hand corner, I stamped the cat in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped it onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock. I placed a piece of Basic Black card stock behind it. To the side of the 6 x 6 layout I added a little tab. To create this tab I took the sympathy saying and using the Basic Black Marker I high lighted the part that said Little Friend. I then stamped onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock. I punched it out using the Curly Label Punch. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and tucked it under the 6 x 6 layout. This completed my page!
