Welcome to the Stamp It Group Easter Blog Hop
On March 1st, I issued 6” x 6” OSW (One Sheet Wonder) challenge to the team members of Kim’s Paper Krafters. I thought it would be fun to add that to this month’s blog hop. its a technique that has been around for awhile and often forgotten.You can create your own template or find many on Pintrest.
I added a 1/2” strip of Mint Macaron at 6” long to ensure perfect length to cut even with the card base. In playing with my layouts, I found I did like a thinner strip. You could also use ribbon or other paper.

Welcome to Stamp It team Valentines Blog Hop.
Thank you for stopping by today. It’s definitely been a busy time these last several months and all things considered, I’ve lost my crafting mojo. It was definitely good to play a little bit. Using only current product, I had to be a little creative. Boy, I sure do miss the large letter dies. Surprisingly I made it happen.
Firstly, my card base in Flirty Flamingo is standard A2 (5 1/2“ x 8 1/2“ scored at 4 1/4” on the 8 1/2” side) From the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack I chose two different patterns. The first for a layer on my card base (4” x 5 1/4”) has the real red scribbles. From the side in Real Red with Blushing Bride hearts, afterwards, I cut 1/2” x 2” strips for my letters.
For the center of the E and foot of the L, I cut one strip in half to be 1/2” x 1” For the “O” you can basically do whatever your creative mind thinks of. First I thought of the postage stamp punch, then the Apple Builder, I mean there are sometimes worms in Apples. Worms/slugs ‘the apple of your eye’ you get it. 🙂 I chose the Heart Punch Pack and fussy cut my snail.
All of a sudden I realized I had used NO STAMPS on this card. This is pretty #simplestamping if you will. Great start for a child, especially if you might not want to get the inks out.
