Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 62

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’s blog.  I am sure we all have something special to share today!

Today is an exciting day!  The Denver Broncos are in the Super Bowl and I can barely think about anything else 🙂  I’ve been super nervous about this game since they won the championship!

So today is a good day and I thought this sweet stamp from the Happy Home set was the perfect way to express it.  This card was quick and easy, although I did struggle a bit with the sentiment.  It seemed to be too big for the stamped images but as soon as I cut it up it balanced perfectly with the sweet boy and his dog.  I added a few pops with my embellishments and some vellum clouds from the Sky is the Limit Sale-a-Bration set.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 40

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 fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog.  I know we have some super cute goodies for you today!

I am clearly obsessed with watercoloring these days!  I just can’t stop playing with the soft affect of watercoloring with our re-inkers.  Today’s project features a lovely watercolored flower as it’s centerpiece.  It was so easy peasy!  I white embossed the Blended Bloom on watercolor paper and painted away.  We did this project in my stamp club on Friday night and every flower was as individual as the artists painting them!  So fun!

The rest of the card features some fun embellishments from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, the cute pom pom ribbon and ribbon from Sale-A-Bration.  Once the painting was complete, the rest of this sweet card came together in a jiffy!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 35

Hello friends! Welcome back to our first Monday Montage Blog Hop of 2015! 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 share our beautiful inspiration with you today!

Soooo excited to share a card featuring some super fun stuff from Sale-a-Bration and the new Occasions Catalog!  I just love this little birdie from the Sale-a-Bration set “A Happy Thing”.  I colored it with my most favorite toys, my Blendabilities 🙂  I also used the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series paper behind my little birdie.  I sponged the striped piece and then cut it into a circle behind my birdie.  I added some background stamps from Butterfly Basics out of the the Occasions Catalog and some pops of Cherry Cobbler to set the whole creation off.

I hope you love as much as I do!  And remember, the wonder Irresistibly Yours and A Happy Thing are free with a $50 purchase…what could be better than that!

You make me happy when skies are gray…

You’ll never know how much I love you….please don’t take my sunshine away!

Such a cute song and what a cute stamp!  AND another Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is one of my faves!  I wanted to use the stamp and the Sale-A-Bration twine for this card and as soon as I made that decision, the card whipped together in no time!

I have been using the Pool Party Twine and the Crisp Cantaloupe Twine lots but I had not yet used the Summer Starfruit so I just had to use it too!  This card is so simple, a few cute layers and embellishments and voila!  A sweet card for a sweet friend or family member!  I also used the Starburst Framelits which I must say, I cannot get enough of!  I want to use them for everything!
