Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 153!!!!
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 know we just had Thanksgiving and we still have a few weeks before Christmas but I just had to play with new toys today! I couldn’t resist the new Tropical Oasis Suite coming in January in the new mini catalog. We have had a LOT of snow already in Colorado and it is a few feet deep still around my house. I needed a little tropical in my life 🙂 The first card I made is more for the avid stamper, it has a simple beauty to it but it required a little heat embossing and watercoloring. I think the final result is stunning! The second card is more for the casual stamper. It uses the dies that are in the suite and some simple stamping. The extra layers and die cuts really elevate a quick and easy card. Isn’t the little guitar/ukelele thing the cutest ever???
Here’s a little trick I did with the palm trees and the pineapple die cuts. I stamped both images twice in different colors. I die cut the images and then trimmed out the top of the trees and the top of the pineapple and popped those up on top of the other die cut with dimensionals. This gave me extra dimension on the card and I was able to do the stamping with an ink pad instead of coloring the stamps with markers. I love how it came out!
