Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 98

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.

I just spent an amazing week camping…first a weekend backpacking trip with my girl and her boyfriend and then camping with friends up on Mt. Princeton.  It’s funny how you pare it all down for backpacking and still eat and sleep well…camping from a car?  It’s a whole different story!  I’m always amazed by all the junk we bring and actually use lol!  I feel rejuvenated and my soul is full from spending time in the forest and soaking up the stars at night 🙂

This card seems to express what I felt when I was out in the woods and mountains of Colorado:  “I’m much more me when I’m with you”.

Creative Tips:

  1. Once again, I am rocking the tiny images in the “You Deserve This” stamp set.  I just love how cute these are and I turned them into a larger background image by stacking them in different colors.
  2. Don’t you love, love, love the ombre ribbon????  This card features the Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon but it also comes in Island Indigo and Calypso Coral…must have colors in my craft room!
  3. I love how Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist go so well together for a modern color pop.

Make sure you go “back” if you missed Bree’s wonderful creation or you can loop on around by hitting the “next” button to get to Dani’s amazing work and the rest of the hop!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 97

I love that ad on TV where the two women are talking about her new blue suede couch and she says “I had to have it!”  and then the burglars are in the living room in the dark saying “had to have it!”.  It’s kinda funny, the lady uses her credit card to get her dream couch and the burglars use a crow bar lol.  Well that’s how I feel about this stamp set!  As soon as I saw it in the new cattie, I was like “I have to have it!!!”  Hopefully, no one is gonna break into my house with a crowbar and steal it 😉

Creative Tips:

  1. I didn’t have Powder Pink ribbon on hand when I started this card but I wanted a ribbon-y embellishment to go behind my teepee.  I just used a narrow strip of card stock that I pulled back and forth with my bone folder to bust up the fibers and make it soft and easily looped.  I also used a small piece that was left on the left side under my card front to give another pop of pink.
  2. I absolutely love the tiny images in this set for borders and backgrounds.  I stamped them on a tiny strip of whisper white, it adds a nice bit of interest to the card front.
  3. There are so many fun things you can do with this teepee, I can’t wait to make more teepee projects!
