Monday Montage 24


Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop!

As you are reading this, I am traveling home after a whirlwind week at the Stampin' Up convention.  Swapping cards is always a highlight and I couldn't wait to meet up with the Monday Montage girls to swap.  For this week's hop, I am sharing the card that I created.

Hello1I used 3 of my favorite stamp sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Work of Art, and And Many More.  Seriously, I can't believe how much I used these 3 sets on my swaps this year.  I would consider them must-haves!


The chevron cut out was created with the Chevron Border punch.  The "hello" cut out was created with my ecutter using the Moments Ago stamp brush set—another must-have for all you digital divas.

I used bits and pieces of the Flower Pot designer series paper to make this card pop.  Now is the time to stock up on Designer Series Paper–it is Buy 3, Get 1 Free until the end of this month!


I'll leave you with a convention photography tip…….the perfect place to take photos of swap cards: place them on the back of the toilet in your hotel bathroom.  Near perfect lighting and neutral colors!   It's amazing all the things I learned this week and I can't wait to share more with you once I get home.


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit all 10 stops on the Monday Montage Blog Hop and have a fabulous week!


Happy Stampin'

    What e- cutter do you use? I’m looking to purchase one to work with mds… And I’m having a hard time wading through the technical info on all the cutters out there! Thanks! Btw, your card is adorable!
