Thinking of You on the Waterfront — Monday Montage #111

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.

Recently, my husband needed a sympathy card for a friend from his Bible study.  I wanted to make something more on the masculine side, yet still have a card that would convey caring and peace.  Having played with the Waterfront stamp set not long ago, I knew it would be perfect.

This stamp set is so fun to work with because it is so versatile.  And it is so forgiving.  By adding layers of stamped images, it doesn’t matter if you don’t place something exactly as intended.  Nothing has to line up exactly right.

The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

Since I wanted to keep it a manly card, I added some Wood Textures dsp on the card base and added a little line thread as the only embellishment.  This one was an easy one to make.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.




Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Let’s Go to the Beach — FMS324

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!  I hope you all get to eat some chocolate and spend time, whether in person or via technology, with someone you love today.  I also hope you get to spend some time doing what you love today too — like maybe some stamping.  If so, we have a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches that would be a great place to gain some inspiration.  Our good friend from down under, Narelle Farrugia, has a sketch that is sure to inspire you.  Take a look:

I’ve had a stamp set sitting on my shelf for the past month that I hadn’t even opened yet.  I decided it was time to ink it up, and it is so fun!  I stamped several little scenes, that I’ll have to make into other cards in the days to come.  But with the cold weather we’ve been having, I was drawn to scenes of a warm beach.  A girl can dream, right!?!

I started by stamping the images on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The images look like they’ve been watercolored, but it’s the stamps that provide this effect.

A little strip of Tutti-Frutti dsp and a piece of washi tape were added for the sketch elements.  This was all layered on a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, which was stamped with the splatter stamp in the set.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you do with it.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site and see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
