We’re back with another Monday Montage Blog Hop for you this evening. There are ten of us participating, so just click on the buttons at the bottom of each post to follow along and work your way through each post.
I recently got the Petite Petals stamp set. Unfortunately, the coordinating punch is on back order, so I’m still waiting to receive it. I just did things the old fashioned way — cut out the flowers by hand. I don’t mind that though. Cutting is a little therapeutic for me. I think just about all things paper-crafting related are therapeutic for me!
I kept both of my cards for today super simple. My kids have been on Spring Break this week, so my stamping time has been very limited. I love cards with lots of layers and embellishments, but sometimes I love simple cards too.
I found that Little Leaves Sizzlits die in my supplies a couple of weeks ago, and now I can’t seem to stop using it. I’ve used it on both cards today. I LOVE this sheet of Watercolor Wonder dsp. It adds a little bit of interest to an otherwise neutral background.
On this card, I wanted the chevron background but I wanted to mute it a little bit, so I brushed on some Gesso with a paintbrush to tone it down just a little. If you could reach through your computer and touch it, you’d find that this adds a nice texture as well.
You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog by clicking the “Next” button below. She always inspires me, and I love looking at her blog. If you’d rather work your way backwards, you can go visit Wendy Weixler’s blog. Her creativity is always impressive and I always say, “Wow!” when I look at her blog.
Enjoy your Monday! Thanks for stopping by!
