All That Glitters is… Monday Montage #7

Monday Montage Banner -- October

It’s time for another Monday Montage blog hop!  I hope you’ll make your way through all ten stops on the hop, and that you’ll get some great ideas and inspiration along the way.

I have really been enjoying working with gold and white this holiday season.  I think it looks so elegant and festive.  I’ve made two cards for you with this color combination.  I used fiber paste with the polka dot Build a Banner Simply Create Kit stencils on both of the cards.  I just love the texture it provides!

Gold Snowflake 2

On this first card, I used white and gold embossing powder on vellum card stock for the snowflake.  I also used some of the gold Smooch Spritz, which Stampin’ Up retired, but I’m having a hard time letting go.

Gold StarOn this second card, I used gold embossing power on the Christmas Star stamp.  The sentiment comes from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamps.

I hope you’ll continue your way along the hop path, and go visit the very talented Breelin Renwick’s blog.  If you prefer to venture backwards, you can go visit the amazing Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, you can make your way to all ten blogs.

I Love Pink and Gold — Monday Montage #6

Monday Montage Banner -- October

We have another Monday Montage Blog Hop in store for you this evening!  I hope you’ll follow along the blog hop trail and see what all of the designers have made.

I have made a new discovery — I love pink and gold together!  I made a couple of Christmas cards using these two colors together and I threw Coastal Cabana into the mix too for a nice contrast color.

Snowflake WishesI love the look of gold embossing, and used that on both of the snowflakes.  I also threw in some sequins.

Another discovery I made is that pink and gold do not photograph well together on my camera.  Here’s a picture of my other card.  Please forgive the terrible picture.  It looks so much better in real life.

Well, you’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s fantastic blog.  If you’d rather work your way backwards (you, rebel!) you can do that too and hop on over to Wendy Weixler’s amazing blog.  Either way, just work your way through the nine other blogs to see the treats they have in store for you.
