Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop! We are a group of ten 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.
I haven’t done much stamping lately so I decided to make a simple card to get back into the stamping groove. Another thing that often helps me is to use a sketch. I like the one over at CAS(E) this Sketch, so I decided to go with it:
In keeping with my goal of simplicity, I decided to use some washi tape and scored some lines for the design elements in the sketch. I also used a stamp set with a coordinating punch — doesn’t get much simpler than that!
The die-cut sentiment was cut from some Real Red card stock using one of the Lovely Words Thinlits dies.
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 Melissa Stout’s blog. Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.
Enjoy your Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
It’s time for another new sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week we are celebrating our 300th sketch challenge! Wow! That’s a lot of sketches! I feel like we just celebrated our 200th sketch, and now here we are at 300. You don’t need to remind me that time flies. My oldest is about to move over 600 miles away as he goes to college. We are moving him into his dorm on Sunday. As I have been helping him pack all of the things he’ll be taking with him, I can’t help but wonder how we could be at this point in his life already. I have shed some tears this week and I’m sure there will be plenty more shed as I make that 9 hour drive back home on Monday. But he’s ready, even though I’m not. Yep, time flies.
But back to our 300th Challenge. We have a special prize for one lucky participant this week. One random winner will receive all of the cards created by the design team using the sketch below.
I pulled out a stamp set I hadn’t used yet called Lemon Zest. I love that it has a coordinating punch, which makes it so easy to use. I paired it with some dsp and created a background with some embossing paste and a stencil. You can see the supplies listed below.
I scooped out a little bit of embossing paste and mixed in one drop of So Saffron ink before spreading it over the stencil. So easy! And I love how quickly it dries.
We hope you’ll join us and play along with this special challenge this week. Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration (and for one lucky winner).
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
