Monday Montage Blog Hop

                                                                                      Good evening!  Welcome back to the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop!  There are lots of beautiful projects to share so please join us for the entire hop!  Use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate through the hop.

I have a card to share today.  I love using the stencils that came with the Build a Banner kit so I figured I would use the dots stencil to create the background for my card.  I used a sponge dauber in Versamark ink and then sprinkled heat and stick powder all over the dots.  Once heated with the heat tool- I applied some beautiful silver glitter and used the heat tool again to heat set.

I chose the deck the halls sentiment from the Christmas Messages stamp set.  The sentiment was inked using the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers.  As you can see from the picture- I simply colored the stamp in diagonal lines.  

Since I didn't have a sparkly silver button to add to my card- I decided to create one of my own!  Using a Vintage Faceted Designer Button, I pressed it into the Versamark ink.  I then dipped the button into my Heat and Stick powder, heated it up and added the silver glitter to the button.  Random paper curls and a bow finish off my design.

Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!
