Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 57

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 Dara Gloden’s blog.  I am sure we all have something special to share today!

It’s been cold and snowy all Thanksgiving weekend here in Colorado.  It’s really beautiful!  I have enjoyed looking at the snowy wonderland out my windows and I was inspired to make yet another project with the Wonderland Stamp Set this week! This time I used non-traditional colors in blue tones, I think this adds to the snowy effect.

The trees are stamped several times in Island Indigo Classic Ink, Soft Sky Classic Ink and Whisper White Craft Ink.  Lot’s of sparkle is added with Two-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  The sentiment if from the Jolly Christmas Stamp Set.  Final touches include some Vanilla Seam Binding, a snowflake and a pearl.  Super simple and elegant.

A friend of mine climbed the Manitou Incline today and sent this pic from the top….it looks snowy and peaceful, just like my card 🙂  Isn’t that an amazing view?  Colorado at it’s very best.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 56

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 fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog.  I am sure we have some super cute goodies for you today!

I just got “home” from Onstage 2015 in Tampa.  I’m actually in Florida for another week, so home is my bestie’s in Pensacola, it’s going to be an amazing week of crafting and talking and laughing and crying 🙂

My project today is a card I posted at the event.  It’s a beauty featuring the Wonderland stamp set, I just love the trees in this set and the antlers….oh those antlers!  Love, love, love!

I stamped the trees in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive, stamping each color three times randomly so they got lighter and lighter.  I gold embossed the sentiment and the cute antlers on vellum.  I added the gold foil star die cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, a button and gold thread.  This made a beautiful and elegant card that came together really quickly and easily.

Onstage 2015 was really fun!  We, of course, talked and talked and talked and talked and laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed.  We got into crazy shenanigans with the rest of the Stampin’ by the Sea girls at the event and then at dinner in Ybor City…on Saturday night…uh, this was very adventurous!  lol

The absolute highlight of the day was Kimberly’s selection to the 2015-2016 Artisan Design Team for Stampin’ Up!  I could not be more excited for her!!!  She is the most creative and talented stamper I know and I can’t wait to see what she creates this year for Stampin’ Up!
