Monday Montage #108

Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop. I'm so happy you joined us!  Be sure to visit all 9 stops to see what other amazing designers have created to share with you.

For my projects tonight I have chosen to use the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and two of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog-  Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You.  Since I love to make Valentine's- I thought it would be the perfect time to start!

For the card- I began by using a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Petal Passion DSP.  I then sewed along the edges.  You'll notice that on both the left and right sides of the card I sewed a zigzag pattern to add interest.

I love all the little details in the gold heart above.  It's a solid stamp however if you look closely- you'll see that the heart itself is made up fo lots of little hearts connected together to form a larger heart.  

For the little milk boxes- I am not the original creator of those.  I CASED The Paper Pixie.  She created a mini video tutorial and shared it on her page. If you need the tutorial- be sure to click above.   
The little milk cartons are so simple to create and SUPER cute! 

On some of the hearts- I used the Heart Happiness Stamp Set and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to create smaller hearts (but with patterns).  To do this- I simply stamped the larger striped heart and cut out a small heart from the center of the stamped image.

Here's a close up so you can see just how tiny they are!  I made a bunch for my co-workers for Valentine's Day.  I LOVE them because you can get 8 from one sheet of 12" x 12" paper.  That makes them pretty inexpensive when needing to make multiples!
