Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 126!!!!

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!

Colorado seems to have skipped right on past fall this year.  It started snowing on my birthday last week and we have had an ongoing snow storm since late last night too!  I was expecting a lot more snow the way they made it sound but it’s really just been super cold with random on and off light snow.  Regardless, winter is definitely coming!!

I thought the Beautiful Blizzard set was perfect for today’s post.  This was my project for our World Card Making Day event, Stampin’ for a Cure, last Saturday.  We had a great turn out and we raised over $4600 for our local Komen Affiliate!  It was a great day 🙂

This card is so super easy to make and looks absolutely stunning!  The cool background stamp is so easy to use…I chose Balmy Blue stamped off, then I went back in with full strength Balmy Blue for the sprinkle image.  After adding a few snowflakes from the Blizzard thinlets die, I spritzed the whole thing with shimmer paint mixed with alcohol.  I don’t think you can see it very well in the photos but this shimmer mist adds a beautiful shimmery look to the card.  I loved watching the stampers fall in love with this technique last weekend!  A quick greeting with the luscious Merry Merlot and the card is done!  I absolutely adore the fonts and sentiments in this set too!  Makes me happy pants 🙂

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 125!!!!

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!

Today I stamped virtually for hours with one of my besties in Virginia, Debbie Keane!  We had so much fun, stamping and gabbing 🙂  I finally pulled out one of the sets in the Holiday Catalog that I have really wanted to play with is Winter Woods and it did not disappoint!  I love all the fun things you can do with this suite.  I went very simple on this card with mostly tone on tone white and some color pops with Balmy Blue and Merry Merlot.  I can tell these are going to be go to colors for me…they are so beautiful!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 124!!!!

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!

There are so many sweet sets and suites in the Holiday Catalog, I can’t decide on a favorite!  I am enjoying every set I play with though!  The weather here is starting to feel a little bit like fall so I thought this was a good choice for today’s post 🙂

I absolutely love shimmer paint and I am super excited it’s back with some amazing new colors!  I painted two of the detailed leaves die cuts with the Vegas Gold and they look soooo beautiful!  This brought the bling and the wow factor quickly and easily 🙂

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 122!!!!

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!

My camper project is finished…finally!!  My paper crafting has sorely suffered the last few weeks while I focused on camper renovations.  It’s a good thing I worked so hard to get those done though, whatever neighbor of mine was annoyed by the camper was calling the HOA several times a day!  Seriously, some people have too much time on their hands!

I was really sad that my holiday pre-order isn’t here yet when I sat down to stamp today!  I’ve been seeing everyone’s cute holiday projects & I really wanted to make something with new goodies from the Holiday Catty 🙂  So I was feeling a little dejected when I was picking a stamp set to play with…then I saw Sea of Textures and I got so excited!  I haven’t used this one yet (I know, I know, ridiculous!  This one is so fun too!) so I pulled it out and started playing.  I love how this came out and I can’t wait to create some more fun projects with this beauty!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 121!!!!

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 had a crazy summer this summer!  I have a giant craft project in my driveway right now that is taking all my free time.  My mom & I bought an old pop-up camper and I have been renovating it.  It has been sooooo much fun but a serious amount of work!  My HOA has been less than friendly about the trailer so I am trying to get everything done before they send me another letter or threaten a fine!  Ugh, they are so picky lol!  I’ll post pics as soon as it’s done, it is coming out so cute!

The camper project has cut into my paper crafting the last few weeks though!  I have a cute, summery card to share today that features embossing paste AND Brusho!  Oh my!  Brusho color crystals provide such saturated color, they are a natural for adding color to embossing paste.  You can control the depth of color with the amount of color crystals you add, so you can go subtle or very intense!

On this project I used Gamboge and Brilliant Red together, I love the color I got!
