Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! We are a few members short this week due to the Father’s Day holiday, but I know that you’ll find many fabulous projects to inspire you. Be sure to follow along on the hop by clicking the buttons at the end of this post.
I’m slowly starting to use more of my products from the new catalog. For today’s card, I used the sketch below from Freshly Made Sketches and paired it with the A Little Wild stamp set and Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The paper in the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is heavyweight and features a gold foil design on one side and a pink/vanilla (or blue/vanilla) pattern on the opposite side. It is stunning, to say the least! I cut my larger circles with the Big Shot and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. The smaller circle was cut from the Thick Very Vanilla card stock with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
I stamped the little elephant image in Basic Gray Archival ink onto Blushing Bride card stock, then die cut it with the coordinating die. Some additional shading was adding with the Watercolor Pencils (mainly Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White) along with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. A few Blushing Bride enamel shapes were added as a final touch.
This was such an easy card to create and could easily be done with the Soft Sky paper to make a baby boy card. I can’t wait to play around with this combo some more!
I’ll be linking to 2 different people this week, so be sure to check them out!
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!
I started by adding a 1″ x 5-1/2″ strip of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper directly to the left side of my Whisper White card base. The top layer of Whisper White card stock measures 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and is popped up with dimensionals.
On the top layer, I directly stamped the Playful Backgrounds stamp in Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay. I placed small post-it notes over the smaller areas, inked up with Crushed Curry first. Then, I removed the notes and added the Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo ink. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black archival ink and is from the Crafting Forever stamp set.
The scissors, twine, and stamp images were stamped on a combination of Whisper White card stock and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to add color and highlights to the images. Sadly, there aren’t any framelits for this set, so I had to fussy cut each piece. As a final touch, I added a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots.
I’ve got one more project to share this week that uses the Crafting Forever stamp set. Be sure to bookmark this new site, as my blog address has recently changed. Thanks so much for stopping by!
