First Page Thanks — Monday Montage #130

 

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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.

The Occasions catalog went live this past week and I thought I would share a card made with the first stamp set shown in the catalog on the first page, no less.  I think it’s easy to miss because it’s right there on the inside cover on page 2 with all of the catalog info and Shelli’s message.  There are a lot of floral sets in this catalog, but I think this one is my favorite.  It’s simple and pretty, and I knew it would be fun to color.

Markers were my medium of choice this time.  After coloring the image, I fussy cut it out.  I die-cut this beautiful trellis using the Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies and white card stock.  All of this was placed over a piece of vellum paper, which was placed over some of the new Gingham Gala dsp.

A bit of Highland Heather Organdy Ribbon, which is a Sale-a-Bration offering, was used under the sentiment, which is also from the All That You Are stamp set.  It has such beautiful sentiments!

A Sled Full of Presents — Monday Montage #129

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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’m in full Christmas card making mode (aka — panic).  I wanted to play with the fun Alpine Adventures bundle because it is a set where I equally love the dies and the stamps.  I hadn’t used the stamped sled yet, so that was what I used on this card.

I started by making a snowy hill with a die from the Farmhouse Framelits set and some Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

The presents were stamped with Lovely Lipstick, Coastal Cabana, Powder Pink, and Lemon Lime Twist ink, while the sled was made with Gray Granite and Early Espresso ink.

I sponged some Pool Party ink on the card base and added some pretty snowflakes and sequins.

I am playing along with The Paper Players challenge this week.

Framed Thanks — Monday Montage #127

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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 needed to make a few thank you cards and thought the Floral Frames bundle would be a fun one to use, especially since I haven’t used it much since I got it.  It doesn’t have any thank you sentiments, so I pulled out my A Big Thank You stamp set too.

I started with a Petal Pink card base and ran a piece of it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It’s hard to tell from my photo with bad lighting, but there is a pretty linen-like texture.

This bundle has such pretty dies, and it’s fun to arrange them around a focal sentiment.

Spooky Sweets — Monday Montage #125

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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.

Now that we have come to the month of October, it’s time to get serious about Halloween treats.  While I’m not all that excited about Halloween as a holiday, I do enjoy the treat making part of it.

The Spooky Sweet bundle was my set of choice this year.  Here are a couple of simple treats I pulled together with it.

I used a small paper sack for the first treat.  It holds a variety of miniature chocolate bars.  I used a strip of dsp from the Country Lane dsp collection and a scrap of black glimmer paper I found in my scrap pile.  I embossed the bats with black embossing powder to add a little shine.  The orange moon was punched from a piece of Mango Melody card stock.

My favorite accessory in the holiday catalog is the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon.  It is so sparkly and is gorgeous!

For the second treat, I used one of the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and the same supplies as used for the treat sack above.

Leaf Treats — Monday Montage #124

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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.

My husband makes our weekly Costco trips.  He is good about sticking to the list, and he goes, gets what’s on the list, and gets out in about 20 minutes.  When I go, it doesn’t quite work that smoothly.  I take the list and while I’m on my way to snag the first item, I get distracted by something that’s not on the list but for the life of me I can’t figure out why that is.  One hour later and with a cart full of many more items than what were on my list, I am leaving the store wondering what just happened.  So last week when I went in for a rotisserie chicken and croissants, a container full of sea salt chocolate covered caramels (shame on those sample people) ended up in my cart.  After consuming too many of them the past few days, and with many more still in the Costco sized container, I knew I needed to get rid of them.  So I decided to package them up in cute packages and give them to my girls to give to someone at school to brighten their day.

I started by assembling the Kraft Pillow Boxes, which are cute and super easy to assemble.  You don’t even need any adhesive.  I then stamped some of the leaves from Falling for Leaves, which is now available in the Holiday catalog, using Memento black ink on thick white cardstock.  I colored them with my markers, and die cut them with the coordinating framelits.

I was inspired by the color challenge over at The Paper Players this week.  It made me think of Fall, and I added the yellow color in as the color of my choice.  I know purple isn’t really a common leaf color, but hey, maybe it should be!

Blended Seasons Leaves — Monday Montage #123

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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.

Time is running out to grab the Color Your Season bundle.  Have you gotten yours yet?  I wanted to play with the leaves stamp in the bundle and get a little coloring therapy with my Stampin’ Blends.

After stamping the image with Memento ink, I used my aquapainter and applied a light wash of Balmy Blue ink around the leaves.  I then colored the leaves with Stampin’ Blends markers.

Using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, I punched a scalloped trim from Fresh Fig card stock.  A piece of Country Lane dsp, which will be available beginning Sept. 5 in the holiday catalog, was added to the Balmy Blue card base.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Season of Wheat — Monday Montage #122

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine 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’ve been playing around with the Blended Seasons bundle some more.  I love how fun it is to color the images, whether it’s using the watercolor pencils, the Stampin’ Blends, a blender pen and ink pads, or an aquapainter.  Coloring therapy is so relaxing and fun!

I hadn’t used the wheat image yet, so that was what I pulled out today.  My grandparents were farmers in Kansas, and I have fond memories of spending summers with them and “helping” with the wheat harvest.  My grandfather would operate the combine and I would ride with my grandmother in the truck as we delivered the wheat to the elevator.  Those were long, hot and dirty days, but this city girl thought it was so fun to spend time on the farm.

I used Stampin’ Blends markers to color the image.  A blend of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie were used, as well as Old Olive for the leaves  and Crumb Cake for the stems.

A simple watercolor wash using Pool Party and a stamp from Artisan Textures were used to make the background.
