Time for Christmas Cards!

 

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 222!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

It’s only September but it is definitely not too early to get going on Christmas cards! This one is super fast and easy. I used the Gnomes Specialty Paper and was able to make several variations. This one was my favorite though and it was so fast to make but is really beautiful.

Beautiful Canyon

 

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 221!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

Have you seen the “Waterfall Canyon” stamp set? It is a beautiful set that coordinates with another outdoor set, “Mountain Air”. “Mountain Air” is one of my faves! Now you can also get coordinating dies for “Waterfall Canyon”! And what a set of dies! There are over 30 great dies that go with the stamp set. When I was creating my card, I thought I need clouds and birds! My silly self didn’t even look at all the dies in this set and went looking for those in other sets lol! I found clouds and birds in “Waves of Inspiration” and used them. Then I noticed clouds and birds right in the “Waterfall Canyon” set! I had to use a couple of those birds too, they’re just a little further away than the birds from “Waves of Inspiration”.

I also had some fun with watercoloring the parts of my card. I smushed ink pads on a glass surface, spritzed with water and then dragged my embossed images through the ink. It made such a pretty, organic color for the various parts of my card.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 220!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

Have you seen this super cute set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog? This is a freebie when you spend $50. These are just a few of the great phrases in this set. There are some really great sentiments in it…one of my faves is “I’m the worst”. I am definitely using it next lol!

I used all the color ways in the For Everything Fancy Sequins and I used my new favorite technique of randomly dropping them on my card and glueing them where they fell. I love the result!

Camper Fun

 

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 219!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

I’ve been camping a lot the last few weeks so it is only fitting that I create a card with this cute camper! These dies come with the free Tree Lot Dies in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. There are so many cute images in this set, I know I will get a ton of use out of these! I tried something a little different when I added my sequins to this card. I took a little handful of sequins from the “For Everything Fancy Sequins” and dropped them on the card. Then I glued each one down where it fell. I really like how it came out, I’ll be using this technique again! I put my sentiment inside the card this time and left the front clean.

All about icons!

I cannot stop with the Rugged Icon Dies! They are just so much fun! One thing I forgot to mention last week is that when I made the paper piecing mountain I had a bunch of fun outlines left to make more cards with. It’s always a good thing when you can get double duty out of card parts πŸ™‚

The guitar card I was thinking about in bed one night lol. Oooooo I can use with the Merry Melody embossing folder. I love how it came out! I went super simple with the mountain card for my color palette and zhuzhed (Google says this is how you spell zhuzh lol) it up by creating a shaker card. I put some really subtle paper behind the the scene and added the blue and green colored fancy sequins. Those sequins are just the best! I added them everywhere!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 217!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

Oh my goodness these “Rugged Icon” dies are so much fun! I couldn’t help paper piecing the image with all the colors lol. I love how it came out. I added some light sun rays with blending brushes and a quick sentiment. Another must have item in the new catalog are the “For Everything Fancy Sequins”! The colors are simply luscious and there are so many fun things in there to use on projects and in shakers. I will be using these on probably every project from now on πŸ˜‰

It’s time for tea and this suite is the perfect brew of goodies! (see what I did there? lol) My mama is having a tea party and she needed an invite. These are a couple of the options I created for her. The DSP is super cute and really made it easy to create something fun and pretty. Both cards feature the new In Colors; I seriously can’t get enough of these colors!!

I have a pretty bouquet for you today featuring lots of the new colors! Quick blending brush background created first, then I ran the card top through with the Splatters 3D embossing folder. Blending brush again to color the flower bouquet and a quick thanks added to finish it up πŸ™‚

At the shore

It may break my heart for the New Horizons Suite to go away at the end of this month! The New Horizons paper is so yummy! Today’s card is a pretty shore scene and it came together in a couple of minutes. I added some soft color with blending brushes, stamped the birds and added some grass and a fence… super quick!~

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you love this card as much as I do!

A little something to brighten your day!

The Rainbow of Happiness Bundle has the most fun dies! I used the biggest one on my card front to create a peekaboo of the watercolored rainbow underneath. Super quick and simple to create! I used Sweet Sorbet, Daffodil Delight, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide for the watercolor rainbow. I love how simple and pretty it is!
