Blended Seasons Sneak Peek — Monday Montage #120

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.

There is a new bundle that will be coming out soon (August 1) called Blended Seasons.  It is a stamp set that has images from all four seasons and coordinating framelits, including some new stitched label-style framelits.  I couldn’t wait to play with it, so here is the first card I made with the bundle.

I started out by adhering one of the patterns from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Papers.  I love the detail on these sheets, and they make easy work out of creating a pretty background.

I stamped the floral image from Blended Seasons onto some thick Whisper White card stock and colored it with watercolor pencils.  As part of this promotion, there will also be a new collection of watercolor pencils available!  I used a blender pen to blend the colors, and then cut out the flowers.

Some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Linen Thread were added as embellishments.

A Birthday Celebration — Monday Montage #119

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 birthday card for my Dad, and I always seem to struggle with masculine cards.  So I decided to pull out the Picture Perfect Birthday set.  Birthday candles and confetti are always perfect for guys and girls, right?

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base and added in some fun, bright colors such as Lemon Lime Twist, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party.

I was inspired by the current challenge at The Paper Players, which is:

It is their 400th challenge!  That definitely deserves a celebration!  And they are having a big one for the next couple of weeks!  Lots of prizes and inspiration at their blog — go check it out.  The Paper Players is one of the first challenge sites I ever participated in, and I have used their weekly challenges as starting points for many of my cards over the years.

Hand Delivered X 3 — Monday Montage #118

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.

One of my favorite stamp sets in the new catalog is a hostess set called Hand Delivered.  You can mix and match the images to create a card that is perfect for the occasion, and it’s a fun set to color.  When I sat down to use it the first time I had a hard time deciding which images to use first.  So I decided to try three of them at once.

For all three cards, I started by sponging on some ink for a background and then adding some splatters.  While this set does not have coordinating framelits, all of the images are easy to cut out with a pair of paper snips.

I colored all of these images with Stampin’ Blends markers.  A few metallic sequins were added as embellishments.  All of these cards were made with Whisper White Note cards and are sized at 3-1/2″ x 5″.

My middle child will be a Senior this year.  I thought I would get ahead of the game while I had this set out and make a card for her first day when she goes back in August.  She is in an IB program, so her Senior year will be a hard year.  I think any encouragement will be appreciated by her.

Detailed with Love Birthday Combo — Monday Montage #117

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 love the pretty, feminine paper in the Garden Impressions dsp stack.  It pairs beautifully with the Detailed with Love stamp set.  I used the two products to make a little birthday ensemble — a gift box using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and a 3″ x 3″ card.

The card base is made from Petal Pink card stock.  This is one of the new colors, and it is such a pretty shade of pink.  It’s almost a little peachy.

I used one of the border strips in the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper packs, and applied it as a top and bottom border along the dsp strip.  I also cut some leaves from another sheet from this specialty dsp and colored them with a Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker.  Some Blossoms Elements were added as embellishments, as was a little bit of metallic ribbon.

For the cute little box, I used the same dsp, ribbon, and stamp set.  This was super quick and easy to whip up.

Sneak Peeks — Monday Montage #116

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.

We are now less than two weeks away from the launch of the new catalog!  Yippee!  I need to start making my list ready and plan out what will go on my first order.  It’s better than making a Christmas list when I was a kid.

I have a sneak peek of a new stamp set, Swirly Frames, that will be available on June 1.  It has some fun geometric shapes that can be used to frame images or sentiments, or they can be used as the focal images on cards.

The sentiment on this card is from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies.  I think this stamp set is great for masculine cards.  Geometric shapes are always great for them.

A color combination of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Night of Navy was used.

On this next card, I paired the square shape with a sentiment from the Detailed with Love stamp set.

 I love the color combination of Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pool Party.

These cards are all quick and simple, and are easy to mail.

This last card also uses the Celebrate You Thinlits dies.

Lining up the rectangles is easy to do with the Stamperatus.

I’ve used a color combination of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Island Indigo, and Melon Mambo on this card.

More Sneak Peeks — Monday Montage #115

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 have a couple of sneak peeks for you today from the upcoming new Annual catalog.  These new products will be available June 1.  They all feature a new set of Thinlits dies, Springtime Impressions.

On this first card, I die-cut the pretty corner floral image from Whisper White cardstock and used a sponge dauber to add color.  This was easy and quick, as I wasn’t trying to be exact with my placement.  I was aiming for more of a watercolored effect.

The sentiment is from a new stamp set that will also be released with the new catalog, called Detailed with Love.

Another die in this set is a beautiful butterfly.

I also die-cut this from Whisper White card stock and added color with a sponge dauber and ink, concentrating on applying more ink to the center of the butterfly.

The medallion images and sentiment come from the Detailed with Love stamp set.

Here is a little box that was decorated with this butterfly.  I used some Rose Glimmer Paper that will be available in the new catalog as well.  The leaves are from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits set.

 I also used a little Petal Pink Rhinestone Gem in the center of the butterfly that will be available in the new catalog on June 1.  They come in different gem shapes and are such a pretty pink.

The new catalog is only one month away!  What do you think of these new dies?  I do love how detailed they are.

A Couple of Sneak Peeks — Monday Montage #114

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 have a couple of sneak peeks for you today from the upcoming new Annual catalog.  These new products will be available June 1.

Both of these cards feature a stamp set called Detailed with Love and some dsp called Garden Impressions, which has beautiful floral and watercolor prints.

There are several beautiful sentiments in this set.  I love the mix of fonts and the sweet messages.  For this card, I used Berry Burst ink to stamp the sentiment and cut it out with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.  The little flowers come from this stamp set too, and were cut out with my paper snips, and Pearl Basic Jewels were placed in their centers.  I looped some Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon under the focal image.

How about that paper?!  I love the pretty colors.  If you look closely, you can see some of the new colors (the background is Soft Sea Foam, and there are some splashes of Mango Melody and Shaded Spruce).

This next card uses the same stamp set and dsp.  I looped some Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon (it’s retiring, so stock up now) under the focal image.

The little flowers are from a new die set, Springtime Impressions Thinlits.  This thinlits set has some beautifully detailed dies, and this one is the smallest.  I’ll have some other cards that feature the other dies on another day.

To add a little interest to the sentiment panel, I took a sponge dauber and applied a little So Saffron ink.  The flower centers were finished with some Clear Faceted Gems.
