Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 67

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

I just got home from OnStage 2016 in Salt Lake City!  It was soooo much fun!  Lot’s of fantastic inspiration and all my creative cells are on fire and ready to make some pretty things 🙂  It was a great week with friends too, laughing and just enjoying time together.

I didn’t make any swaps this year, I just brought a few cards for downline sisters and friends.  I didn’t have a lot of time before my trip to put anything together so I made this simple project the night before I left for Salt Lake.  It is so simple yet sweet and elegant.  The gold embossed image makes it classy yet easy to put together.

The card features the swirly image gold embossed on the Whisper White card stock base.  “Hello” is die cut from Soft Sky card stock and the hashtag is die cut from Island Indigo.  They are connected with a staple.  Silver thread is swirled behind the die cut images and attached to the card front with glue dots.  The final touch are the rhinestones for extra bling 🙂

My second project is a cute gift bag I made for my BFF and roomie in SLC.  I had a little gift for her and I needed something quick and easy to put it in.  No stamping necessary, I just made a cute little topper to add to the top of a glassine bag.

This project features about 3/4 of a Tea Lace Doilie and a small gold Metallic Foil Doilie stacked on top of each other.  Two small banners are punched out of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and Pool Party.  A piece of Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim is folded accordian style under the mini banners.  These are all stapled in a stack to the doilies.  A bow is tied with doubled Whisper White Baker’s Twine and added.  A Metal Rimmed Pearl is added too.  The whole piece is attached to the top of a Sketched Dots Gift Bag.  This went together in a few short minutes and looks soooo cute and extra special!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 66

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!

Yay for April!!!  I really was sick the ENTIRE month of March and I am finally really, truly feeling better after the worst series of crud(s) I’ve had in years!  It feels so good to be doing a little creating instead of sleeping 🙂

This card features the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  The large flower image is gold embossed on velum and then cut out.  Next a couple of flowers were cut out of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  The cut and embossed flowers are layered on another piece of vellum and stapled or adhered with dimensionals.  The sweet sentiment “enjoyyourday” from You’re So Lovely is stamped on a narrow Whisper White banner in Watermelon Wonder.   The vellum is then attached to the Whisper White base with staples.  Some Perfect White Accents and Rhinestones add the perfect amount of bling to the finished card.

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

Well this past week or so I’ve had pneumonia!  Seriously???!??  I have been sick most of March.  I guess I am making up for years of not getting sick…..doing it all up at once.  I am so done with being sick though…..I haven’t done much stamping and I am totes missing it 🙁

This card features the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  The large flower image is gold embossed on watercolor paper and then watercolored with Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron.  After watercoloring, the image is fussy cut.  The background is one of the polka dot images cut out at 4 x 5 1/4 with a piece of vellum layered on top in the exact same size.  The sentiment is gold embossed on a vellum banner and stapled to the flower image.  Final touches are gold thread, a button and small white baker’s twine bow.

Birthday Blooms!

I am soooo excited about the new Occasions Catalog that is being released by Stampin’ Up in January!  I am still enjoying every second of the Holiday Catalog but I cannot lie, I do love new goodies 🙂  This new catalog features lots of fun new stamps and coordinating dies and some really fun new accessories….what’s not to get excited about I ask?

Here is a sneaky peak of a tag I made with a new stamp set and Designer Series Paper that will be available on January 5, 2016.  Happy, happy new year to us 🙂

I am sure you have not noticed that I am obsessed with watercolor, the big flower image in the Birthday Blooms set is absolutely PERFECT for watercoloring.  I white embossed the image on watercolor paper and then used Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow re-inkers to watercolor.  It is lovely!  Super easy to pop on the sentiment embossed on vellum and staple everything to a tag cut out of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper.

Do you want these beauties right now???  As a demonstrator, we can pre-order the Occasions Catalog items on December 3rd!!  Contact me for more information.
