Holiday Happy — Monday Montage #34

Monday Montage Banner -- OctoberWe have another Monday Montage Blog Hop ready for you.  There are ten of us participating, and all you have to do is click on the links at the end of each post to work your way through all of the participants.

Holiday Happy with White StarsI started this card by spreading some embossing paste (non-SU) over the Stars Decorative Mask and then sprinkling some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the stars before they dried.  While that was drying, I colored this fun stamp from the Mingle All the Way set using Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers.

I love the sparkle that the glitter adds and the texture from the embossing paste.

Holiday Happy with White Stars Close UpYou’re ready to hop on over to the ever-creative Breelin Renwick’s blog to see her fabulous work.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, I won’t judge, and you can see the super talented Wendy Weixler’s work.  Either way, be sure to work you way through all ten blogs.

A Thanksgiving Snapshot — FMS162

It’s Wednesday, and it’s time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week we have the fabulously talented Kim Singdahlsen as our hostess, and look at what she has for us:

It’s a great sketch, I tell ya.  When I first saw it I thought of all of those cute Project Life cards in the Seasonal Snapshot collection.  I decided to make a Thanksgiving themed card before I run out of time.

A Seasonal Snapshot of FallI love how easy it is to make cards as well as scrapbook pages with these cards and embellishments.  I also used the Mingle All the Way stamp set for this card.

A Seasonal Snapshot of Fall Close UpWe hope you’ll be able to make your own card using this sketch.  We love to see what you make.  You can check out what the design team made using the sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches site.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Happy — FMS155

Time is flying by!  It’s already time for another challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week our fabulously talented Kiwi friend, Karren Johnson, is our hostess.  I was so excited when I saw that this sketch features a tag.  I love making tags!

I pulled out the Mingle All the Way stamp set and colored it with my Stampin’ Write markers.  I love the fun fonts on this set.

Holiday HappyThe dsp strip on the side comes from the Nordic Noel dsp package.  I love the blend of traditional and non-traditional colors for Christmas in this package.

Happy Holiday Close UpWe have had such great participation lately, and I hope that you’ll help to make that continue.  We love to see what you do with the sketches.  Please stop by and see what the design team made this week at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  It’s always fun to see how we come up with such different cards and styles using the same sketch.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Stuffed ThanksgivingI recently won the Mingle All the Way stamp set as a door prize at a Stampin’ Up! event.  It has lots of cute sentiments that work great as focal elements.

I paired it with the Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating dies and added some (lots) splatters and Candy Dots.  The washi tape is from the Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape collection.
