Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 76

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.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

My card today features the Affectionately Yours Suite Stamp Set Love & Affection.  I pulled one of the colors of the suite and made a two-tone card featuring Whisper White and Mint Macaron.  The results are elegant and beautiful yet pretty simple to put together.

The Whisper White base is stamped randomly with an image from Gorgeous Grunge in Mint Macaron before it is embossed with the Floral Affection Textured Embossing Folder.  The two flower images from the Love & Affection set are heat embossed in Copper and watercolored with Mint Macaron to give a soft, sweet color.  After the paper dries the images are fussy cut.

The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaron on Whisper White and die cut with a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits collection.  A piece of Mint Macaron is banner cut and layered over a paper clip with a tiny piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim.  The sentiment die cut is stapled to the banner as shown in the pic.

The cut flowers are layered with dimensionals to the card front with swirled Copper Metallic Thread underneath.  The sentiment is attached to the card front with the paper clip.  The finishing touch are sweet pearls added to the flowers and sentiment.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 75

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.  As always, we have some amazeballs inspiration to share today 🙂

This is a set I had to have as soon as I saw the new catalog!  I am a total sucker for anything involving a globe and the sentiments and the fonts are so fantastic!  I just lurve 🙂  This set is great for graduation, a Bon Voyage, a new home or camper…..it lends itself to several fun occasions.

I’m sharing two cards that are similar yet different using the set.  The first features the globe image white embossed on watercolor paper and then water colored in Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim.  One of the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge is gold embossed on the Dapper Denim card front.  The globe stand is stamped in Archival Black on the card front.  The sentiment is gold embossed on vellum and stapled to the globe (my typo said “blob” lol!).  The last step is adding the gold thread under the globe, random rhinestones and enamel dots.

Places You'll Go Stampin' Up

We made the second version in my stamp club a few weeks ago.  This is a little simpler version of the same card recipe.  First up,  the globe image is stamped in archival black on Dappper Denim scrap and cut out.  The card front for this one is Whisper White, the Gorgeous Grunge splatter is stamped across the front in Dapper Denim ink.  Again, the globe stand is stamped in Archival Black.  One of the other sentiments in the set is gold embossed on vellum and stapled to the globe.  The heart is punched out with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch in Real Red, it adds a nice pop of color to the card.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 74

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.  As always, awesome projects will be shared today!

I just love everything about the “In This World” stamp set.  I love all the detail, the delicate images and sketchy feel.  This is another set I have been super excited to play with and finally had the chance to ink up!

Okay…looking back at my posts I almost always say “this card is easy peasy”….uhhhhh not saying that today lol!  This card has quite a few steps and parts but it’s actually a little easier than it appears and soooo worth the extra effort 🙂

The card front is on watercolor paper.  The first stamped image is the door in Archival Black, next step:  watercoloring in Early Espresso and Soft Suede.  The funky (I love this image sooooooo, soooo much!) gear, blueprint image is heat embossed randomly in White EP next.  It is drop in watercolored in Calypso Coral and Marina Mist.  Another fantastic effect are the splatters.  any splatter image will do, I think I used the one in Painter’s Palette.  Its stamped in Early Espresso first before the watercolor ink is dropped in, then again after the watercoloring is dry.  This technique gives you some images that are washed out and some images that are crisp.  The overall effect?  Delish!

The butterfly image is stamped in archival ink twice:  once on the card front in the location you want it to be and then a second time on watercolor paper scrap.  The second image is watercolored in Calypso Coral, Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  The butterfly is much more saturated in color to make it pop from the card.  Next, it is cut out and popped up on dimensionals with gold thread swirled underneath.  The last little details are the sweet, tiny banner at the top and the pearls scattered across the card front.

This beautiful set has been calling to me since it came in the lovely brown UPS box!  As soon as I saw this set, I saw this card in my mind and knew I just had to make it happen!  The bridge is stamped in Archival Black ink and the sun ray image is stamped over it in Versamark and embossed in clear embossing powder.  The sunrise is watercolored in Watermelon Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Perfect Plum and Dapper Denim.  The sentiment is stamped in Peekaboo Peach and punched out with a 1 1/2″ circle punch.  A few added touches:  Wink of Stella added to the sun rays, the adorbs little birdie, gold thread and the banner punched with the Duet Banner Punch.

Ohhhh how I love playing with new crafty goodness 🙂  The new cattie is out and although I have not been able to spend as much time crafting the last couple of weeks as I would have liked, I have gotten a few sweet moments to make some cute things.  2016 has been the year of health problems for me and I am just hoping that I have turned a corner now and everything is on an upswing!

Today’s card features another new fave stamp set “Pop of Paradise” …. I’m talking serious cuteness factor!  I can’t get enough of the adorbs Flamingo.  This card flew together really quickly…tee hee!  (do flamingos actually fly??!)  I gold embossed Ms. Flamingo and fussy cut her and the rest of the card is easy layering of the other elements.

On our last hop I wrote that the Sunburst Thinlit was retiring…uhhhh bad info on my part!  It’s in the new cattie, yay!!  This sweet set is going away though and it has been one of my faves.

This card features nearly the entire Going Places product suite from the soon to be retired Occasions Catalog.  A piece of Sahara Sand is stamped with an image from Timeless Textures and then embossed with the World Traveler TIEF.  The globe from Going Global is gold embossed on Sahara Sand and cut out with a Circle Thinlit.  The sentiment is gold embossed on Very Vanilla and punched out with the Washi Label Punch.  A 1/4″ piece of Going Places Designer Series Paper is cut into a banner shape.  All pieces are adhered to the card front as shown in the pic, with gold thread, a doily and rhinestones adding additional interest.
