Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  I am so excited to be back after our extended holiday break.  There are tons of new products to share from the Occasions catalog. but I thought I would kick off the year with a few Valentine’s Day projects.  Today’s card features a layout from Freshly Made Sketches and more of the gorgeous Painted with Love suite of products.

I started by layering the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper onto a Whisper White card base.  A strip of paper featuring gold foil and a square of white vellum card stock complete the background of the card.

For the focal point, I die-cut 2 hearts from the Painted with Love Designer Series paper with the Big Shot and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.  I stamped the Valentine greeting in Melon Mambo ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut with the heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  A small amount of mini gold tinsel trim was placed behind the hearts as an accent.

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  Thanks for taking time out of your busy holiday schedule to join us.  We’ve got some great projects for our final blog hop of the year, so be sure to visit all 9 stops.

I think I can officially call myself a “dance mom”.  We spent all day yesterday in rehearsal for Bella’s holiday recital and today was the big performance.  I decided to work backstage for this show and it’s really amazing to watch it from that vantage point.  My inspiration for today’s card comes from one of Bella’s costumes and this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I felt like the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set would be the perfect set to use on a Thank You/Christmas card for Bella’s ballet teacher.  The background was created using the Prussian Blue Brusho Crystal Colour over a piece of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I simply sprinkled a small amount of Brusho onto the paper, spritzed lightly with water, and allowed it to dry.  It creates a beautiful effect, don’t you think?  The Brusho Crystal Colour will be available in January.  I also added a few mini silver sequins for sparkle.

The ballerina image was stamped in Black Mememto Ink, colored with Stampin’ Blends, and fussy cut.  A wash of Wink of Stella was added to her tutu to give it a subtle shimmer.

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!

We’ve had a busy holiday weekend that included lots of friends, family and food.  I know many people spend this weekend putting up holiday decorations, but we’ve decided not to do much this year.  We’ve got a lot of activities and travel the entire month of December, so we simply won’t be around enough to enjoy a fully decorated house.  However, I do enjoy creating a few decor items with my stamping supplies.

JOY decor piece

I started by spray painting some wooden letters that I purchased at the craft store a few months ago.  Once they were dry, I traced the shapes/letters onto the Merry Little Christmas Designer series paper.  After carefully cutting out each shape, I adhered them to the wood pieces with Mod Podge.   It takes a little time to dry, but once it was dry, I carefully sanded the edges for a smooth finish.

The focal point is very similar to this card I shared recently, except I used the Watercolor Wishes stamp set for the greeting.

Event though this piece is small, I think it will bring a lot of Holiday cheer into my stamping space and home.

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!

I have just returned from an AMAZING trip to Salt Lake City for OnStage 2017.  It was great seeing old friends, learning new stamping techniques, and of course, swapping.  I only participated in one organized swap, but I received some great samples.  Today, I’m sharing a swap that I created using the A Little Wild stamp set and matching framelits.

I colored the bear image with the new Stampin’ Blends.  These markers are so much fun and really easy to use.  You can also see it used on the beehive and tiny bees.  All of these images are included in the A Little Wild stamp set and the framelits make cutting them out a snap!

 A Little Wild Spinner

I’m not sure what the technique is called for this card, so for now, I’m just going to call it a floating spinner.  The front and back images of the bear are attached together with fishing line in between.  When you open the card, the bear spins around in the opening.  Pretty cool, huh?  If you’d like to see a tutorial on this card, leave me a comment at the end of this post.

Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop!

I’ve got a quick and easy project to share with you.  We made this adorable set of mini  cards and coordinating mini pizza box in my card club this month.  This project would be perfect to give to a coffee-loving friend along with a gift card.  I kept the cards very simple, so you could whip this up in a matter of minutes!

 

For the base of the cards, I cut Whisper White card stock to 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″, scoring at 2-3/4″ to create a 2-3/4″ square card.  The layers of Designer Series Paper are cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ to fit over the entire front of the card.  This size of card fits perfectly in our 3″ x 3″ envelopes available in the Holiday catalog.

Cafe Cards

There are 4 cards featuring coffee cups with sentiments from the Coffee Cafe and Merry Cafe stamp sets.  Between both of these sets, you can easily have cards for almost any occasion throughout the year.  The outside of the mini pizza box was embellished with a Delicate White Doily and some 3/8″ Garden Green ribbon.

Cafe Cards Minis

The possibilities with these mini pizza boxes and coordinating cards are endless!  You could easily whip a few of these up for Christmas gifts and add a gift card to make it even better.
