Monday Montage #133

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

I'm so excited that my Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog order came!   It actually arrived on Friday but not until super late so I haven't really had a lot of time to play.  Normally I don't wait forever to place my order but this time around I was just too busy to order it sooner.  I've been making gnomes to sell for my husband's Red Cross fundraiser (he needs to raise $10k for the Red Cross so that he can run the Boston Marathon).  Though they are super cute- they do take some time to create.  Interested in purchasing a gnome to help us reach the $10k goal?  Click this link HERE to see the details!

My favorite stamp set from the Occasions Catalog is Tea Together.  It's super cute and can be used to create literally any type of card for any occasion. It was my intention when I first started this card to create something that would fit along the lines of #simplestamping.  As you can see- #simplestamping did not go well for me.  This turned into an avid crafter card pretty quickly!

  My color scheme was Basic Black, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam.  Yes- even though the leaves are dark- they were created using a Soft Sea Foam Reinker and an Aqua Painter.  The gorgeous rose was created using several layers of Lovely Lipstick.

Can you see the beautiful Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder imprint that I used on the Rectangle Stitched Framelits?  It's so pretty!

To complete the card- I added a bow created from the 1/8" Grosgrain Lovely Lipstick Ribbon.  No card can ever be complete without a little bling so you'll also see some Rose Metallic Thread and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to use the links below to navigate through the hop!  Click the BACK button to see what the fabulous Cheryl Curtis has created or click the NEXT button and head on over to the amazing Elizabeth Price's blog.
