Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 8

mondaymontage banner revised Oct 13

Hello friends! Welcome back to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog. I can’t wait to see what they have to share this week, you won’t want to miss it!

This week I am sharing the “Believe” banner that I made for my mantel.  Unfortunately, by the time I tried to photograph it today, it was really too dark to take pics!  But I wanted you to see how pretty it is hanging from the mantel, the rest of the pictures are lit much better and feature the details.  Another disclaimer on all the pics, with all the different pieces it was very hard to get pics with everything in focus!

This banner was soooo easy, peasy!  I just cut the banner shapes out of burlap and then I stenciled the letters on with the stencils in the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit and white acrylic paint.  After that I made bunches of snowflakes with the Festive Flurry stamp set and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies.  I stamped some with Gold Metallic Encore Ink and some were gold embossed.  I stamped them on Whisper White and Vellum.   A few I just cut with the framelits out of Whisper White and painted with White Frost Shimmer Paint (front the clearance rack).  I also gold embossed the deer silhouette from the Remembering Christmas stamp set.  I had to cut him out by hand but I think the results were totally worth it!

I hope this inspired you to make something beautiful for your home for the holidays.  My decorating will probably be fairly minimal this year.  I still have another big craft show in December and will also be out of town some in December….so not much time for decorating!

I do love my deer heads and I just have to share this guy decorated up for the holidays:

I also hope you are enjoying our creative inspiration as much as I am!  I continue to be awed by the skill and creativity of my fellow friends on this hop!  Be sure to come back every other Monday to see what we have up our sleeves for you!

Make sure you go “Back” if you missed Bree Renwick or you can loop on around by hitting the “Next” button to get to Dani Dziama and the rest of the hop!
