Monday Montage Hello Beautiful

Hello stampin' friends! Welcome back for the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Today I'm sharing a card that I created using the Abstract Beauty Product Suite form the January-June Mini Catalog.  This suite is so fun to use!  The stamps have cute sayings, the dies are fun geometrical shapes and the DSP is gorgeous! 

To create this card- I cut 2 layers of DSP from the Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP.  I roughed up the edges of both DSP layers using the blade on my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card base in an offset manner.   Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies- I cut out 5 rectangular DSP panels which staggered and adhered to the top layer.  I then added a medium sized circle image in coordinating DSP (this was the largest open circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies) to display the sentiment.  

Thanks for stopping by!    Please be sure to click the links below to navigate throughout the hop!  BACK will take you to Cheryl Curtis and NEXT to Elizabeth Price.

TGIF Challenges: Sketch Challenge #tgifc355

Hello Friends! Today I'm playing along with the TGIF Challenges Design Team. Today we are sharing projects created based on the sketch above.  I don't know about you- but I love sketch challenges because it takes the guesswork out of creating.   
The design is already planned so grab some stamps, inks, card stock, embellishments and create away!

I used my favorite DSP Sunshine & Rainbows for this bright fun card.  Not gonna lie- I'm gonna be pretty sad when Sale-a-bration is over and we can no longer get this fabulous paper.  I LOVE it!

For this card- I used several different dies.  The Border Basics Dies were used to create the clouds beneath the rainbow.  The Give It A Whirl Dies were used to create the larger clouds at the ends of the rainbow.  The Brilliant Rainbow Dies were used to create the rainbow and smaller clouds.  

To add interest to the bright background- I distressed the edges and zig zag stitched a border all the way around.  

Why not join in on the fun and create a card of your own?  Simply create a card using the above sketch and submit it on the TGIF Challenges blog using the guidelines below!
