Monday Montage #126 Mini Pillow Boxes





Hello there stampers!  Welcome back to another edition of Monday Montage.  I don't know about you but I'm super excited to see what everyone has created this week!

Tonight I'm sharing some of the items I created for my upcoming Craft Show at the St. Mary's Church in Monroe, MI on Saturday 10/20/18.

These little cuties were created with the template I shared last fall.  CLICK HERE FOR TEMPLATE.  Simply print the template out- cut out and trace onto your choice of Designer Series Paper or Card Stock and embellish as you wish!  


These measure just under 2-1/2" long and will fit exactly one Hershey's Miniature (or Lindt Swiss Premium Chocolate bar).  They may be tiny but they are adorable!


These were embellished with a 1-1/4" Pumpkin Pie Circle, a 1-3/8" Basic Black Scalloped Circle, the moon from the Twinkle Builder Punch and a scrap of Mango Melody.   The cat is from the Cauldron Framelits Dies.  The sentiment is from the Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set and was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.  A tiny Linen Thread bow was added to finish them off.

OSAT Blog Hop Ghouls, Goblins & Gourds

Hey there stampers! Welcome back for another fabulous One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  It's time for some Ghouls, Goblins & Gourds!  

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  I love to decorate and be festive.  I also love to create Halloween cards and treat boxes for our trick or treaters!  Nothing too scary though!  Just a little Trick or Tweet!


This little set was created using the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set as well as the Spooky Sweets Stamp Set and coordinating Spooky Bats Punch.  The tiny little bird is just the sweetest!  He's decked out in a white sheet and carrying a little pumpkin trick or treat bag.


The adorable ghost background comes from the Toil & Trouble DSP.  Surprisingly I'm not a fan of purple but I adore Gorgeous Grape!  It's so cute when used for Halloween! 


The treat box was created using the Takeout Thinlits Dies and some Vellum.  I stamped the Vellum using the misty image from the Spooky Sweets Stamp Set.  The Bats were stamped in Gorgeous Grape and cut out using the coordinating Spooky Bats Punch.   I then filled it with Halloween themed Hershey Kisses.  

I hope you have enjoyed my projects for today!  Be sure to follow along on the hop!

Happy Halloween!

Good afternoon stampers!  Today I have the sweetest little Halloween project to share.  A few weeks ago a fellow demonstrator (Jacque Williams) had shared an adorable tree that she had created.   Now if you know me- you know that I MUST make the items I fall in love with.  This little tree was no exception!  The trees that Jacque shared were Christmas Trees.  Since I LOVE Halloween- I thought I'd make a Halloween tree!


Isn't it just the cutest?  It measures just slightly over 5" tall.  For the branches on the tree- I used the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and Basic Black Card Stock.  My tree base is an empty wooden spool of thread that has been embellished with a piece of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock that has been stamped using the Buffalo Check Stamp Set.

First Frost

Good evening!  Tonight I had the opportunity to play around a bit with a few of my new toys from Stampin' UP!.  I was immediately drawn to the First Frost Stamp Set and coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies as well as the amazing Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  
Just in case you're wondering what's so "special" about the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP- let me just assure you that it is nothing like a DSP we have ever had before.  It's shimmery, it's lightweight and it is absolutely gorgeous!  Pictures in the catalog do not do this suite justice.  It is definitely a must see in person!


Like most things- I have managed to find a favorite.  For this suite- my favorite would be the amazing DSP that I used for the striped background.  It's Gray Granite and it's super sparkly!  For the roses- they were stamped in Blushing Bride (leaves were stamped in Mint Macaron) and covered in Wink Of Stella to add some shimmer.  If you don't have Wink Of Stella- that's ok- you can get a similar effect by using the new Shimmer Paint's from the Holiday Catalog.  

Here's a close up of the main focal image.  So pretty!

So Santa!

Hello there stampers!  Have you chosen all of your favorites from the new Holiday Catalog?  I thought I did but I keep coming across more and more that I simply must have.  One of those sets is called So Santa.  It is so cute!  I love it mostly because of the beach themed Surfer Santa but the Santa on the Scooter is a close second!  


The card I created above depicts the first idea I had for this stamp set.  If you look really closely in the picture you'll notice some wonky sewing in the watercolor wash background.  Stampin' Blends in all colors are the perfect combination for this fun non-traditional Christmas card.


 Here's a better view of the wonky sewing.  I love it!  Super cute and oh so fun!

Monday Montage #124: Spirited Snowmen




Hello there stampers!  Welcome back to another edition of Monday Montage.  I don't know about you but I'm super excited to see what everyone has created this week!

I have an uber cute card created with one of my favorites from the new Holiday Catalog.  It's called Spirited Snowmen and it's sure to melt your heart!  This set is absolutely adorable!


It's even cuter when paired with the brand new Buffalo Check background stamp.  For my card- I inked the Buffalo Check stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamped it onto a piece of Lovely Lipstick Card Stock.


The snowmen image was stamped in VersaMark onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and then heat embossed with the Heat Tool and White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  The image was then watercolored using the following ink colors and an Aqua Painter:  Lovely Lipstick, Balmy Blue, Shaded Spruce, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, Mango Melody and Bermuda Bay.  Since the snowmen were heat embossed using White Stampin' Emboss Powder- I outlined them with a darker shade of Balmy Blue to make them stand out better.  So cute!
