Silly Goose - OSAT Blog Hop Fuzzy Buzzy Friends

 Welcome to a fun post where I am featuring the Silly Goose Stamp Set for the OSAT Blog Hop this month.

This month's theme is Fuzzy Buzzy Friends!  Our challenge was to make two projects with anything that would include animals or insects!!

When I saw the Silly Goose stamp set in the January- April mini catalog it made me laugh. 

Honestly, I immediately thought of my son who is a teacher - since they can no longer give hugs - he always says to his students - fist bumps only!! So the two ducks giving "Goose Bumps" sold me!!

I used the new bumpy embossing folder that is one of the new Online Exclusive products-Basics 3D Embossing Folders - (where there are three different embossing folders bundled together)  I hope you can see the texture in my photo - It deserved to go with the goose bumps!  The colors I used are Balmy Blue for the base, Pacific Point for the embossed layer, a layer of black and the Basic White.  I stamped the image and just colored with my Stampin Blends - I don't think you have to be perfect with your coloring - I think it looks more like a sky with some lines and different shading to the Balmy Blue coloring.


For my 3D project I made a box for a mini Grey Goose Vodka bottle -  What better to go with the THANKS goose stamp.   I pulled out some of the Sun Prints DSP to cover the box - this is beautiful paper but I could not help thinking that this particular piece kind of reminded me of the mess the geese leave on our dock!!  We live on a little lake and the geese are not always our friends!

But since we live on this little lake - the guys are often helping each other out - pulling the boat lifts in, repairing boats, etc. and it is always nice to give a little thank you.  So this box was meant to be very masculine but fun because they don't really want gifts!

I started with a full sheet of Thick White Card stock 8 1/2" X 11"  - see the directions above as how to score it and then cut into the edges to form the flaps.   
 I made an insert piece out of the blue measuring 5 3/4" by 5 1/2"  Scoring on the longer side at 1 1/2", 2 3/4"& 4"  Make a mountain fold out of the middle scored pieces (they should each be 1 1/4" wide and glue those together to make your divider.
I made a belly band with the grey DSP from the same pack, Sun Prints.  The tag has three layers - black, Pacific Point and Basic White - cut twice to size with the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  I colored my Goose with Stampin Blends and added a few Enamel Dot Essentials at the corners. 
We have a small group hopping today so I hope you take the time to see what the other talented card makers have come up with!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
