Monday Montage #128





Hello there stampin' friends!  Welcome back to another edition of Monday Montage.


I have a super cute Christmas card to share today.  This card was created using the Santa's Workshop Specialty DSP.    This DSP is one of my favorites!  It's just so stinkin' cute!  There are santa's, elves, stripes, and so much more!

  
This little elf is just adorable!  He's pushing a cart filled with Christmas presents from Santa.  Are you on the nice list?  Or have you been naughty?  😂

To color the elf- I use both the Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends and the Ivory Stampin' Blend.  Even though the green in the DSP is Garden Green- the Shaded Spruce still looks awesome!

Monday Montage #127





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 the last of my Halloween Cards.  These 2 were created as part of an order and they are super cute!


The first one is my favorite.  But only because it has a mummy cat!   I sometimes think my cat is trying to dress up as a mummy.  She loves to unroll the toilet paper LOL.


The second card features a cute little party animal!  It's a puppy in a witches hat.  What a fun disguise!

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!

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!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop: Love You To Pieces

Hello there and welcome back for another Fancy Friday blog hop.  I'm hopping with my fancy friends today- all are either current or former members of the Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team.  For our projects today- we are featuring a bundle our choice from the current Annual Catalog.

For my project- I chose the Love You To Pieces bundle.  This sweet bundle was one of my "must have" sets.  I'm not sure exactly why but I'm just drawn to it.  It's so cute and lots of fun!  


As you probably guessed- the Love You To Pieces bundle consists of a super fun stamp set filled with various puzzle pieces and sentiment stamps.  The coordinating Puzzle Pieces Thinlits Dies are a perfect fit for several of the stamps!  There's even a mini heart shape that cuts out into a puzzle!  I have used it on my sentiment above!


As you can see in the pictures- I may (or may not- LOL) have gotten carried away just a little bit with the Wink Of Stella.  LOVE me some Wink of Stella!

Monday Montage #123 Nothing Sweeter




Hello there stampers!  Welcome back to another edition of Monday Montage.

  As a demonstrator I was able to preorder from the new Holiday Catalog.  Normally I would have shared weeks ago however I'm trying something new.  I've decided that since customers cannot purchase from the Holiday Catalog-  I would wait to share the new products until closer to the date the catalog goes live.  Even though the Holiday Catalog doesn't go live until September 5th- I've decided to share now!

The first stamp set I purchased from the Holiday Catalog was called Nothing Sweeter.  This stamp set is just adorable.  It totally reminds me of cookies and I LOVE to bake!  Especially cut out cookies!


I totally love that this stamp set also has coordinating Framelits!  They are called Sweetly Stitched Framelits Dies and they are amazing!  Check out the stitched hearts below!  Super fun, right?


I could have just layered the hearts one on top of the other but what fun would that be?  So I "baked" a cookie and frosted it instead!  Embossing Paste makes the best icing!  (just don't eat it!)


I just love this sweet card ❤  It's so fun!  Super cute too!

Monday Montage #122 Pocket Money




Hello there stampers!  Welcome back to another edition of Monday Montage.

I have a cute project to share tonight.  A few weeks ago I made a card that had a really intense Prussian Blue Brusho background and a lot of people made reference to me that it looked like denim.  So....I figured why not and now here is the denim!


The Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp Set and coordinating Pocket Framelits Dies were the perfect pair for these jeans!  To create the card- I made a Prussian Blue Brusho background and a Prussian Blue pocket.  Using VersaMark ink- I stamped the stitching onto the pocket and heat embossed it with the Heat Tool and the White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  A little HBD tag was added under the right side of the pocket.


A little pocket money was stamped in Pool Party ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Using the Layering Circles Collection Framelits and the Big Shot- I cut out the larger scalloped circle and the sentiment circle.  The sunglasses may be my favorite part of this card.  They were created by stamping the sunglasses image in Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Petal Pink card stock.  After I cut them out using the sunglasses framelit and the Big Shot- I colored the lenses in using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I layered it on pretty thick and they took at least 30 minutes to dry but they are super cute!


Such a cute and fun way to give a birthday gift!
