Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 153!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

I know we just had Thanksgiving and we still have a few weeks before Christmas but I just had to play with new toys today!  I couldn’t resist the new Tropical Oasis Suite coming in January in the new mini catalog.  We have had a LOT of snow already in Colorado and it is a few feet deep still around my house.  I needed a little tropical in my life 🙂  The first card I made is more for the avid stamper, it has a simple beauty to it but it required a little heat embossing and watercoloring.  I think the final result is stunning!  The second card is more for the casual stamper.  It uses the dies that are in the suite and some simple stamping.  The extra layers and die cuts really elevate a quick and easy card.  Isn’t the little guitar/ukelele thing the cutest ever???

Here’s a little trick I did with the palm trees and the pineapple die cuts.  I stamped both images twice in different colors.  I die cut the images and then trimmed out the top of the trees and the top of the pineapple and popped those up on top of the other die cut with dimensionals.  This gave me extra dimension on the card and I was able to do the stamping with an ink pad instead of coloring the stamps with markers.  I love how it came out!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 152!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

I just got home from OnStage in Las Vegas!  This was a Stampin’ Up event to celebrate the achievements of the last year, see new products coming out in January and mostly to spend time with friends from all over the world!  I went to two extra events before and after the Stampin’ Up official event that were so much fun!  At one of them we swapped table gifts with the girls at our table and everyone made the cutest things!  Part of my table gift was this little trailer.  I saw a trailer made out of the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box die and I just had to make my own!  This one flew to Las Vegas and back with me so it is a little travel worn but no less cute!

I am so in love with the Feels Like Frost DSP!  It is so easy to make something elegant and lush with this paper!  This card has about 5 billion layers but I just couldn’t help myself, I had to keep adding stuff lol!  Ultimately this is not a card I would make a bunch of, but one I would make for someone special 🙂

We held our 12th Annual Stampin’ for a Cure yesterday here in Colorado Springs.  We raised a bunch of money for local cancer patients.  It was a very fun and busy day!  This was the card a designed and sponsored for one of our projects.  It was fun to share stamping with so many newbies 🙂  This card was quick and easy to put together and made our new stampers want to come back for more!

It’s finally October & I am getting my Halloween on!  The little monsters in the Boo to You stamp set are so cute and so much fun to color!  Once I had this little guy colored and cut out, the rest of this project came together quickly.  And his googly eyes?  The cutest!!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 146!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

I have been out of town & I could hardly wait to get back and play with these snow globes!!  So much fun and so versatile!  Today I did a Halloween globe and a more traditional snow globe.  I love them both!  Here are some tips from my experience…make sure you put your globe lower on the card than you think it should be.  I should have put the snow scene globe lower on the card front than I did!  Don’t make that mistake 🙂

It is so much fun to create these little scenes!  I can’t wait to make more…I think you can put just about anything in these little globes.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 145!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

My holiday pre-order arrived on Friday and I could not wait to play with my new goodies!  My card today features the Gather Together stamp set and coordinating dies.  I absolutely love the Tags & Feathers Elements and I used the tree slice and stamped my sentiment on that.  As you can see the sentiment is not very vibrant, I think that is because the tree rings, which are soooo very cute!, don’t allow the ink to saturate the wood piece.  I am going to try embossing my sentiment on my next project and I think that will be better!

Two words….PIGMENT SPRINKLES!!!  These new color crystals are soooo vibrant and beautiful and I absolutely love the colors!  On these cards I only used three colors:  Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green & Gorgeous Grape.  The 1st card is just the Bermuda Bay & Granny Apple Green, the 2nd card has all three colors.  I am loving how pretty these colors are & I know I will be using them often!Band Together Stampin' UpBand Together Stampin' UpBand Together Stampin' UpBand Together Stampin' Up

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 143!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

This suite is AHHHHH-mazing!  The dreaming kids looking to the skies and the future and the sentiments….be still my heart!  And, of course, the fabulous dies!  The adventure die is worth the price of admission lol!  I love it so very much!

This card was quick and easy and really plays off the words in the suite.  I had to add the “awaits” from the retired En Route set.  I needed that word for this card!  I also used the new Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, I just love the built in sparkle!  These new embossing powders are must have tools in your crafting toolbox for sure.Silhouette Scenes Stampin' UpSilhouette Scenes Stampin' Up
