Welcome back to the Monday Montage blog hop! Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring paper craft projects. Be sure to visit all the stops….you don’t want to miss anything!
Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you, like it did on me? I think Father’s Day is going to do the same thing! As I was creating my project for tonight’s blog hop, I decided to use the sketch below as my inspiration and feature the Nailed It stamp set. Nailed It will be retiring at the end of this month and is still (as of this writing) available. However, many of the other items on my Father’s Day card for tonight have already sold out. I’ll still share it at the end of this post, but I wanted to create something that would get you excited about the upcoming new catalog!
As you may know from my previous post, I am very fond of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I love all of the greetings and the 2-stamp flowers are adorable. Using the sketch, I paired the stamp set with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to give the card a rustic feel. I really like how it turned out, don’t you?
I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut it with the Layering Circles Framelits. Next, I created a frame from Lemon Lime Twist card stock by die-cutting the same circle and an outer circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The flowers were stamped in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, and Crushed Curry inks. Unfortunately, there isn’t a coordinating set of framelits for these flowers, so I had to fussy cut them. It may look complicated, but it only took a few minutes.
I finished off the card by adding some Glitter Enamel Dots. This product has been SO VERY POPULAR with demonstrators during the preorder. I know you’ll want them, but there may be a slight delay for them to be back in stock. Don’t worry! I’ll keep you posted. I definitely want more for myself, too.
So, now that you’ve seen the masculine version of the sketch, which one do you prefer? Leave me a comment below to let me know your pick.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I just know you are going to love it. It’s a 2-step stamping set with a wide variety of images and greetings that will be available in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog beginning June 1st. I created a very simple card today using this layout from CAS(E) this Sketch.
Lately, I’ve been using the Thick Whisper White card stock for all of my clean & simple cards. It gives the card a little extra “oomph” and makes it seem more substantial. I started by stamping the greeting in the lower right corner with Basic Black archival ink. Then, I went on to build the floral background around it.
I stamped the stems & leaves with Lemon-Lime Twist ink, a new In Color for 2017. The larger flower stamp is created with 2 stamps. First, I stamped the more solid image by stamping off the ink first before stamping the card to create a lighter shade. Then, I stamped the detailed stamp full-strength over it. The larger flowers were stamped with Berry Burst and Crushed Curry inks. I filled in with some Bermuda Bay, Powder Pink, and stamped-off Lemon-Lime twist flowers and swirls.
The final touch was a few of the new Glitter Enamel Dots. These come in a package of 160, and feature ombre shades of Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Berry Burst, and Old Olive. I can see that these will become a new favorite of mine!
