Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop! We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.
Some of my neighbors have already started decorating for Halloween, and while I can’t quite start that yet, I thought I could make some Halloween cards that I’ll put in some care packages for my college students next month. I’ll probably have to send this one to my son because when we moved my daughter into her apartment in Michigan a few weeks ago, one of her neighbors had a bat flying around in her apartment. It kinda freaked my daughter and me out. Fortunately, she hasn’t been visited by one of these flying creatures in her own apartment, but I don’t want to remind her of the possibility.
I love the simple line-art images in the Turnovers stamp set. The bat in this set is much cuter than the live one we saw in Michigan. This set has you covered for multiple holidays — Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. And it’s a clever set — if you turn the stamp over, it will color in the images for you. I didn’t do that with this card because I wanted to color in the images with my markers, but that is an easy option if you choose it.
This card was started with stamping the pumpkins and bat on some Whisper White card stock and coloring them with my alcohol markers. I then cut them out with my paper snips. I used a Stitched Shapes die to cut out the circle from the same card stock and blended in some Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss inks. That was placed on a Rich Razzleberry scalloped circle.
I placed that on a strip of Metallic Mesh Ribbon, which is a fun embellishment that I am looking forward to wrapping Halloween treats with. The dsp is from the Magic in This Night pack.
You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog. I always love seeing what she makes! If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog. Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.
If you should happen to get lost in the blog hop links, here is a list of all of those participating:
