OSAT Blog Hop: Hello My Name Is

Good morning stampin' friends!  Today's projects were created for the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop.  Our theme this month is Hello My Name Is...we are introducing some new products from the Annual Catalog!
I chose to create with the adorable Happier Than Happy Stamp Set and coordinating Happy Forest Dies.  When I first saw the Happy Forest Friends Product Suite in the new Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog- I knew I had to have it.  It is so cute and let's face it- the Happy Forest Friends DSP is pretty stinkin' awesome!  The color palette for the DSP is so pretty- with Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Old Olive, Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate.  Colors that I use individually but had never used together before.    

My card is a 5" square card created using a Thick Basic White Base.  There is a top Basic White layer that has been embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.  I distressed the edges  to junk it up a bit before adding a top layer of Happy Forest Friends DSP.  I feel like I cheated because the only thing stamped on this card is the sentiment!

My coordinating project is treat box made using the Cracker & Treat Box Dies.  The Cracker & Treat Box Die makes creating this little favor a cinch!  Simply cut it out and adhere together.  Embellish as you wish!
I hope you have enjoyed my projects for today!  Please be sure to join us on the rest of the hop by following the links below!

Monday Montage: Happy Birthday

Hello stampin' friends! Welcome back for the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Today's card features the gorgeous True Beauty Stamp Set and coordinating Organic Beauty Dies.  If you haven't seen this suite- I suggest checking it out!  It is on page 67 in the new Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.

The stamp set itself is gorgeous!  There are several floral and greenery images as well as sentiments.  To create my card- I used the trellis image die as a stencil and filled it in with Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  (Be sure to wash the die immediately or it will be ruined as the Embossing Paste hardens fairly quickly.)  After the Embossing Paste was dry- I layered several stamped floral and leaf images to create a bouquet.  For the sentiment- I chose the  Happy Birthday sentiment from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set.  

Here's a closeup of the flowers.    The color palette is Polished Pink, Calypso Coral, Merry Merlot, Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue.  This is definitely not one of my usual color combinations but I love how it turned out.  It's so pretty!!!
