Bubbly Super Bowl Fun!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 109!!!!

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, Elizabeth’s beautiful work.

Oh my word!  The Bubble Over stamp along with the free Sale-A-Bration paper and the coordinating dies (Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies) are so much fun!  I thought it would be fun to make something with this set for Super Bowl Sunday although my “drinks” look pretty tame and not really Super Bowl party worthy lol 🙂  The best part about this suite of products?  You can get the paper totally free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration!  It features my absolute fave colors Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay…yummy!!

Creative Tips:

  1. I cut the bottles out of vellum and colored them with Calypso Coral Blend from the back to get my color coordinated “liquid” in the bottle.
  2. Dimensionals and glue dots adhered all the parts together and gave the card front tons of dimension!  For the straw, I added a glue dot near the bottom and then slid it “into the bottle”.  It was the last thing I added to the card.
  3. Guess what silver foil is perfect for??  Bottle caps!!  That bottle cap die is the cutest evah!

Today I was working on a bunch of stuff and needed something simple & sweet for my post.  I received this beautiful stamp set for free in November at Onstage and it was time to ink it up!

Creative Tips:

  1. The flower/leaf image is stamped in Memento Ink so that I could use Stampin Blends on it.  I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive and then fussy cut the image.
  2. The other colors in the paper, ink and ribbon?  Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist of course!  I love how these colors pop and they work perfectly with the colors of the blends.

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, Elizabeth Price’s beautiful work.

Most of Christmas is put away and my family celebrations are behind me now!  What a crazy few weeks it was at the end of December!  I had the week between Christmas and New Year’s off and I planned to do all kinds of crafting but that ended up not really happening…we had 4 different nights of rolling Christmas and I just plain didn’t have time lol!  It was wonderful to just be lazy and spend lots of quality time with family & friends 🙂

It’s time to get going with 2018 projects and, of course, the first thing on my horizon is Valentines Day.  I haven’t had a sweetheart in years but I still absolutely love the season of hearts and arrows and always enjoy creating with our “love” themed suites.  Today I got out “Sure Do Love You” and the coordinating framelits and I.am.in.LOVE!!!!  I have lots and lots of ideas of fun things to make with this suite of products 🙂

At first this little box had me confused!  I was thinking, where is the other piece??  Once I figured it out though, it is so easy to use and so cute!  I’m going to make a quick video of how to put this together so stay tuned for that!  Next I need to make some cute cards to go into my little box 🙂

Creative Tips:

  1. I used Daffodil Delight (Dark) Blends to create “gold rhinestones”…this works so well!
  2. I white embossed the sentiment on Shimmery White Paper and then watercolored it with Berry Burst.  I LOVE how this came out!  It gives a lovely pop of color to the creation which is otherwise primarily white and gold.
  3. I am also totes in love with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack….for some reason I had not opened this gem yet.  (I know…seriously??!?)  I love this stuff!
