Textured Speech Bubble Valentines — Monday Montage #12

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  Grab yourself something warm to drink, scoot up your chair, and have fun looking through all ten blogs.  All you have to do is click on the “Next” button at the end of each post.

I decided to play with the super fun speech bubbles in the new Word Bubbles Framelits Dies set.  There are several fun shapes in this set, and they coordinate perfectly with the cute Just Sayin’ stamp set.  Rather than use the coordinating stamp set, I chose to play around with negative images in the speech bubbles — more specifically, hearts since it’s getting close to Valentine’s Day.

Textured Speech Bubble HeartsOn this first card, I used the small heart punch and the smallest die in the Hearts Collection Framelits for the negative images.  I also pulled out some Pink Pirouette Core-dinations card stock and used the Decorative Dots embossing folder, which is available only during Sale-a-Bration, and sanded it a little bit.  I wish I’d remember to use this stuff more — I love it!

I Freakin' Love You ValentineOn this next card, I used the Arrows embossing folder on regular Pink Pirouette card stock, and I used the Yippee-Skippee stamp set for the sentiment.  Once I got the Smoky Slate 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon arranged the way I liked, I used a stapler to hold it down, and then covered that with the button.

I think you’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog to see what awesome creations she’s made this time.  If you prefer to work backwards, you can click the “Back” button and go visit Wendy Weixler’s fabulous blog.  Either way, you should be able to work your way through all of the other nine blogs.
