Monday Montage Week #156


Welcome to Monday Montage! We are so excited you are here and  hope you enjoy the projects we have for you today! 

I have two cards to share with you today, one that is stepped up a bit and one that is fairly simple, and I used the same stamps and colors for both of them! 

Without further ado, here they are!





I bought the First Frost Stamp Set and the coordinating dies ages ago, but with all of the holiday stamping I was doing August through December, I have never pulled this set out! I am so glad I finally did, because I love it! I love the depth and texture of the flowers that comes with just inking and stamping once because they are Distinkive stamps. 
What are Distinktive Stamps you ask?  Distinktive Stamps are stamps that give you photo-realistic images that have a special texture for added depth and dimension in a single step! And they are only available from Stampin' Up! Cool, right?



The Birch Background stamp was perfect for this card! And a few Clear Epoxy Droplets added some interest! And I love, love, love the beautiful background die from the Stitched Labels Dies!!


For this card, I used a simple masking technique so that the yellow flowers and greenery look like they are behind the pink flowers!

The New Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Start Today!

Today's the day! The new Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration start today! There are so many fun, new products that are great for many occasions! How many of you are already thinking about Valentine's Day? I am!



This Valentine card is headed to Australia for my daughter, so I wanted to make it early to ensure that is gets there in time!


I used the Heartfelt Bundle #151292 (which includes the Heart Felt Stamp Set and the Heart Punch Pack-bundled to save 10%) from the new Mini Catalog and I paired it with The Gang's All Meer Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set #152294 that I was able to get free with a $50 purchase!

Stampin' Blends were perfect for coloring in the darling meerkats. Here is a close-up of the little cuties:




This card was easy to make and is very mailable-especially if you leave off the bow to make it perfectly flat!


Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! I am so excited for 2020! I think a lot of great things will happen this year and decade! 

To celebrate, here is my first card of the new year!
I saw the Lily Pad Dies that are part of the upcoming Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration offerings, and I thought that the dies could also be used for succulents! I paired one of the lilypad dies with the cup die from the Cup of Cheer dies to make this card. It came together so quickly and I love the modern feel of this card.

The Cup of Cheer dies and the coordinating stamp set, Cup of Christmas, are only available through tomorrow!


And get excited, because Sale-a-Bration starts January 3rd!!

Monday Montage Week #154


Hello and welcome to our blog hop! I can't believe there are only 9 days left until Christmas!! Even though it is a busy time of year, I still try to sneak in some paper crafting! Here is one more Christmas card that I had so much fun making!!





I love the images in the Cup of Christmas Stamp set! And did you know that the cups are reversible?!! You can ink up either side of the die so you can stamp cups with handles on the right or left side of the cup!! And the Cup of Cheer coordinating dies allow you to cut out both right and left handled images! It's amazing!! And there are some great sentiments and accents that are included in this set!

Here is a close up!

I wanted to add some fun little touches to my "cups of hot cocoa". Of course the darling candy canes included in the set were a must, but I wanted some other elements as well. So I cut two pieces of Early Espresso Cardstock with the two tag dies included in the Cup of Cheer Dies. I layered them and and cut off the tops of the tags and turned them upside down to make a chocolate bar for one of the cups. I really wanted whipped cream for the other cup. So I looked through some of my dies from the Holiday Catalog and found the perfect solution! The Trio of Tags Dies has a die that looks like whipped cream! I just used the top portion of the die, and voila!!! The perfect whipped cream for my hot cocoa!

Monday Montage Week #153



Happy Monday Montage to all of you! I am excited that you are joining us today! We are in the middle of winter now it seems (until next week when it is supposed to be 60 degrees, lol). We had a very white Thanksgiving and it was snowing like crazy the day after when we went to pick out a Christmas tree! We picked our tree really fast this year 😁! It seems fitting that I am sharing a quick and easy Christmas card featuring this super cute snowman!



I used the Let It Snow Suite to make this fun card! And it really was so easy! I used the Snowman Builder Punch to punch the snowman right out of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper! I love that Stampin' Up is making there DSP to match so many punches and dies now! And the cute little hat and scarf are from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit-so great, right?!!

Here is a close up!

Monday Montage Week #151



It's time for another Monday Montage Blog Hop! We're so excited you're hopping with us today! I hope you all had a happy Halloween! What was the weather like where you are last week? It actually snowed here!! We woke up to snow last Sunday morning! I'm really not ready for winter, but the snow inspired me to get out a new stamp set and create a wintry scene!





Snow Front is the perfect set to use!! I love the variety of images that come in this set! And I love that Snow Front coordinates perfectly with Waterfront, one of my favorite sets in the Annual Catalog. With these two sets the possibilities are endless for scene building!

Here is a close up!
