Merry in Gold — Monday Montage #1


Welcome to our first Monday Montage!  We had so much fun doing the Artisan Finalist Blog Hop that we decided we should get together a couple times a month and do more blog hops.  So the ten of us who were finalists for Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Award, but not chosen for the design team, will be showing you various projects together.

One of the products in the Holiday catalog that I couldn’t wait to try was the Expressions Thinlits Dies.  So I used them to make this Christmas card:

Merry BannersI also used the new Gold Foil Sheets to cut out the “Merry”.  Isn’t that stuff beautiful!

I hope you’ll continue on the blog hop and go check out Breelin Renwick’s  beautiful creation.  You can also work your way backwards by starting with the talented Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, just make sure you work your way fully around the blog hop circle.

  1. Oh, I’ve been wanting those thinlits! I love how this card showcases some of the great designs on the DSP and the “Merry” looks so stunning with the gold foil sheets. I would love to CASE this one (I gotta get those thinlits first)!

  2. What a great card! The simplicity of the banners combined with the elegance of the “merry”. What a wonderful combination. I am looking forward to your new blog hop. Thanks for always inspiring!!!!
