Monday Montage #230






Hello stampin' friends! Today I have a sweet Valentine to share!  It was created using the Conversation Bubbles Dies and the Love For You Dies.  That's right- a card with no stamping!  


Isn't it cute?  I don't often make cards that don't involve stamping but I had this idea in my head and couldn't resist putting it on paper. To create this look- I first cut a bunch of conversation bubbles using the Conversation Bubbles Dies.  Then I carefully arranged them onto a Basic White top layer and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.


I used a stapler to attach the tiny ribbon to the card layer.  Three tiny Sweet Sorbet  hearts (from the Conversation Bubbles Dies) were added around the Love You sentiment to add interest.  
The card was finished off by adding Heart Pearls.

OSAT: Fresh Finds

 


Welcome to the first OSAT Blog Hop of the year!  Join us as we share out creations made with items from the brand new January-April Mini Catalog.  My card features the Country Bouquet Stamp Set as well as the Country Floral Lane DSP.  In addition- I have also used the Dandy Designs DSP (Sale-A-Bration Catalog) and the Alphabet A La Mode Dies.


Making Valentines has been a tradition of mine forever!  It's fun to create heartfelt messages for those we love.  This card features a playful color palette that's perfect for anyone!  Sweet Sorbet, Kraft, and Coastal Cabana.   Each heart was constructed using the Heart Punch Pack and the centers were popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 


Each letter was cut using the Alphabet A La Mode Dies, Basic White Card Stock and Foam Adhesive Sheets.   The card was embellished with a Coastal Cabana Baker's Twine Bow.  This twine can be found in the Three Twine Combo Pack.

Creation Station


 Welcome to the first Creation Station Hop of the new year!  We are focusing on Sale-A-Bration products this month as in just a very few short days- the Stampin' UP! Sale-A-Bration event will be live!  There are so many amazing new products this time around!  I chose the Thanks A Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set for my project.    


Did you know that carrots come in a variety of colors?  Yep.  It's true!  In addition to orange- they can also be purple, red (though they appear more pinkish), white and yellow.  How FUN!

For this card- I have created several "varieties" of carrots using the following colors:  Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzelberry, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron.  Each carrot was stamped once with full strength ink, then again after it was stamped off.  The leafy tops of the carrots were stamped in Granny Apple Green- some at full strength and some stamped off.  


To add a bit more color- I flicked ink splatters using a Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker all over the carrot layer.  The THANKS sentiment was stamped onto a small Coastal Cabana Card Stock 
scrap and adhered atop a Parakeet Party Baker's Twine Bow.

Thanks for stopping by today- up next on our hop is Sara Nell Langland.  Happy New Year!!!

Monday Montage #226: Sneak Peek!!!






Hello stampin' friends!  Today I have a sneak peek from the upcoming January-April Mini Catalog.  The bundle I'm using is called Sweet Citrus.  In this bundle- there is the Sweet Citrus Stamp Set and the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder.  It. Is. Amazing.


The Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder is just gorgeous!  The embossing folder itself has a lot of texture and the images come out looking amazing.  I love the definition that this simple step creates.  As the embossing folder is a hybrid- there are also dies that cut out the images as well.  


To create the citrus pieces- I first stamped the rinds in Daffodil Delight Ink.  Then I stamped the centers in Daffodil Delight Ink- stamped the color off one time and then used a Stampin' Blending Brush to add a little hint of Polished Pink Ink.  
The leaf images were stamped using Soft Seafoam Ink.

Monday Montage #224






Hello stampin' friends!  Don't you just love the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set?  I've only owned it a few short weeks but it's become a favorite!  It comes in a few different ways- in a product bundle (stamps/dies) or the suite- which includes a ton of awesome products!  
Today- I have used the stamp set and coordinating Boughs Of Holly DSP.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous!  The colors are so rich and vibrant!  When paired with only Basic White- they pop!


This card measures 4-1/4" square.  I embossed a 4" square Basic White layer with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder and curled the upper left corner.  The beautiful poinsettia image was fussy cut from the Boughs of Holly DSP and layered upon the rectangular holly leaf frame.

Monday Montage #223






Hello stampin' friends!  Welcome back to another Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Today I'm sharing a super fun Halloween Card.  This card was created using the Sequins Dies and the Scary Cute Bundle (Scary Cute Stamp Set and coordinating Scary Silhouettes dies).


This card was super simple to create.  I began by die cutting 8 Basic Black and 8 Pumpkin Pie sequins (I used the Sequins Dies-the second to the smallest size that has 6 in a row).  Next- I arranged them in a square onto a piece of Basic White Card Stock.  Using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker- I added some black ink specks.


I cut 2 small and 1 medium size bats using the Scary Silhouettes Dies and adhered them to 3 Pumpkin Pie Sequins.  I then wrapped a piece of White Baker's Twine (Baker's Twine Essentials Pack) around the card front in between the bottom 2 layers of sequins and tied a bow to the left side of the card.  Next- the Halloween Happiness sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a Basic White scrap and cut apart.  It was adhered just just above and in between the bottom two rows of sequins.  Embellished with some Pearl Basic Jewels.

Monday Montage #222






Hello stampin' friends!  Welcome back to another Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Today's card features one of my favorite Product Suites:  Hues of Happiness.  
I love this suite because of the bright happy colors.  They remind me of warm weather, sunshine and all things summer.  Sadly summer is coming to a close but that's ok- this set is timeless!


The striped circle is actually a floating element.  If you've not tried this technique- I recommend it!  It's simple and really adds a fun element to the project.  Below is a close up- it's actually difficult to get the full effect of it as in between the stripes looks metallic but it's not.  The stripes are actually on a Window Sheet.
