Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 76

Hello friends! Welcome back to the 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 wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

My card today features the Affectionately Yours Suite Stamp Set Love & Affection.  I pulled one of the colors of the suite and made a two-tone card featuring Whisper White and Mint Macaron.  The results are elegant and beautiful yet pretty simple to put together.

The Whisper White base is stamped randomly with an image from Gorgeous Grunge in Mint Macaron before it is embossed with the Floral Affection Textured Embossing Folder.  The two flower images from the Love & Affection set are heat embossed in Copper and watercolored with Mint Macaron to give a soft, sweet color.  After the paper dries the images are fussy cut.

The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaron on Whisper White and die cut with a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits collection.  A piece of Mint Macaron is banner cut and layered over a paper clip with a tiny piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim.  The sentiment die cut is stapled to the banner as shown in the pic.

The cut flowers are layered with dimensionals to the card front with swirled Copper Metallic Thread underneath.  The sentiment is attached to the card front with the paper clip.  The finishing touch are sweet pearls added to the flowers and sentiment.
