Magical Dragon Day — Monday Montage #107

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 hope you’re having a happy 2018!  We’ve had a quiet and cold Christmas break here at our home.  All of my kids go back to school this week.  My son left this morning to go back to his university, and I have to say it was almost as hard to say goodbye today as it was when we left him at his dorm for the Fall semester.  Watching my babies grow up is hard!  But he loves it, and he is excited to go back.  That makes it a little easier for this momma, I guess.

I think my favorite suite in the new Occasions catalog is the Myths & Magic suite.  I knew my daughter would love it, as she is a huge Harry Potter and Disney fanatic.  So this is the first stamp set I knew I had to play with.

I colored the image with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends markers.  I then added a little bit of Wink of Stella on parts of the dragon to add a little sparkle.  The dsp also has some added shine, as this is a specialty dsp pack where many of the patterns have a little something extra.

Elf Holiday — Monday Montage #106

 

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.

As I scramble to finish Christmas preparations, I have another Christmas card to share with you.  I love this cute image of this shy elf, and he’s so easy and quick to color, so he’s perfect for last minute Christmas cards.

I added a couple of pieces of dsp from the Quilted Christmas dsp pack and the Merry Little Christmas dsp collection to add some festive color to the card.  A little Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper snowflake  was cut using one of the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.

A Happy Bird Hello — Monday Montage #105


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 wanted to play a little with the Color Me Happy stamp set, which has some great, easy images to color.

 

I started by stamping the floral image randomly around where I wanted to place the focal image.  I used Powder Pink ink on the same color of card stock.   I then cut out two stitched shapes squares — one from Night of Navy card stock and the other from vellum.  The sweet little bird was stamped on Thick Whisper White card stock with Memento black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends markers.

Some navy enamel dots and pink sequins were added as embellishments, as well as some silver metallic thread.

Christmas Cheer Lantern — Monday Montage #104

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.

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been enjoying playing with the Seasonal Lantern bundle.  This bundle comes with a detailed die for the lantern and another die for the stamped lantern.  My last card used the detailed die and this card uses the stamped lantern image.

I paired the lantern with some dsp from the Merry Music collection and the Merry Little Christmas collection.  The sentiment was stamped on Basic Black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder.

A Poodle Day — Monday Montage #103

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.

Once Stampin’ Up! announced that they will soon be offering alcohol markers again, I couldn’t wait to dive in.  Demonstrators were allowed to pre-order them on October 1st, and everyone else can on November 1st.  I have been having fun playing with them, and love that you don’t have to be a coloring expert or artist to use them successfully.

I needed to make a birthday card and I have rarely stamped any of the adorable images in the Birthday Delivery stamp set because I thought they’d be hard to color.  But now that I have the new Stampin’ Blend markers, I decided to give it a go.  And it was easy!  I love these things!

I started by stamping the image with Memento black ink and let it dry a few minutes.  Then I used the two Smoky Slate markers, Cherry Cobbler markers, Pink Pirouette markers, and Pool Party markers to color this sweet poodle.

I applied some very lightly dyed Pink Pirouette embossing paste onto the card base and adhered some ribbon and trim pieces down under the focal image.

One thing I did learn is that the markers do bleed just a tiny bit, so the Color Lifter marker is a great investment for those times where your color ends up a little outside the lines.

Fall Themed Treat Boxes — Monday Montage #102

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.

Now that it is officially Fall, I’ve been inspired to make Fall and Halloween themed treats.  I love the leaves in the Colorful Season Bundle, so that is what I decided to start with.  And since the Painted Autumn dsp has such beautiful Fall colors, I had to grab a sheet of that too.

I started by wrapping a strip of Painted Autumn dsp around a Clear Tiny Treat Box.  I then adhered a piece of burlap ribbon and the leaves, made with Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso card stock.  Some Crushed Curry Baker’s twine was wrapped around the box, and I tied on a tiny tag made with the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies (I cut off the bottom) with some Linen Thread.  The stamps on the tag came from the last Paper Pumpkin kit.

Falling Leaves and Birthdays — Monday Montage #101

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.

Now that it is officially Fall (in the calendar sense only here), I thought it was appropriate to start making Fall themed birthday cards.  It seems like we know a lot of people with October birthdays.  I love the beautifully detailed leaves in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, so I cut some out in Fall colors (Lemon Lime Twist, Cajun Craze, and Tangerine Tango).  There is no stamping on this card — just die-cutting.

I cut the sentiment with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die from Whisper White card stock and sponged on some Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive inks.  On the background, I sponged some Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry inks and added some Cajun Craze splatters.

The dsp strips are scraps from the Painted Autumn collection.  A few copper metallic sequins were added for embellishment, and I was done.
