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 🙂

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!

This stamp set and embossing folder along with these colors just make me happy pants!!  I love the bright cheerful colors, they make me feel like spring may actually be coming even though we just had a snow storm in Colorado this week lol!

Creative Tips:

  1. The circle image is stamped in several colors (Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst).  It is stamped full strength and then stamped off once and twice.  It gives a nice layer of dimension to have all these different colors popping off the card.
  2. The “Happy” is stamped first in Lemon Lime Twist on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and then embossed with the embossing folder.  I love the look of this.
  3. Splatter and rhinestones and the new beautiful glitter enamel dots add the finishing touch.

All products depicted are not yet available, they will ALL be available on June 1, 2017!!!  Whoop!!!
