Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 94

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, Dani Dziama’s sweet designs.

Why is it time to celebrate?  New catalog time and that calls for a big celebration!!!  I’ve been head over heels for this cattie since the minute I saw it.  I think I am most smitten with the new In Color Lemon Lime Twist…it gives a sweet pop of color and adds a punch to almost any color combo.  My card today features my favorite color combo Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay 🙂

Happy Celebrations Stampin' Up

Happy Celebrations Stampin' Up

Creative Tips:

  1. You get this fabulous de-bossing effect with the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder which carried over to the new catalog…yay!
  2. I used the rock and roll technique with my ink pads to make my celebrate pop.  I inked up the giant ink splat image from Happy Celebrations in Lemon Lime Twist and then I added Bermuda Bay just around the edges by “rolling” only the edge of the stamp on the pad.  I love these colors mixed up like this!
  3. How do you make your doilies go with absolutely anything?  Watercolor them to coordinate with your color scheme.  My doily is watercolored in Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay to match the rest of my card 🙂
  4. A quick pop of color with the scallop edge in Lemon Lime Twist (a side of one of the Layering Squares Framelits) and the ribbon/doily topper in the corner make the card sing 🙂  And how about the super cute Glimmer Enamel Dots???  Be still my heart!

Make sure you go “back” if you missed Bree’s wonderful creation or you can loop on around by hitting the “next” button to get to Dara’s amazing work and the rest of the hop!
