Monday Montage Week #216

  

Do you struggle with masculine cards? The struggle is real for me sometimes! So today, for the Monday Montage Blog Hop, I am featuring some masculine cards that can be made for any occasion. I made them for my dad and father -in-law for Father's Day, but these cards would be perfect for birthdays, retirement, thinking of you etc!


Aren't these cards so great?! The Rugged Icon Dies are wonderful for masculine cards! I love them! The mountain scene die is to "die" for!!!

Here is a close-up of the card I made for my dad:


Both cards have the same basic layout, but I wanted to add the fishing pole die to my dad's card because fishing is his favorite hobby. Don't you love the little rainbow trout?

And here is a close-up of the card I made for my father-in-law:


On both cards I used the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and tore the edges of the cardstock. I inked it all up with a Sponge Dauber and Soft Suede Ink to make the woodgrain standout. The sentiment is from the He's All That Stamp Set-another great set for masculine cards!

Monday Montage Week #215

 

Hello Monday Montage Blog Hoppers!! Thank you for being here! Can you believe the January-June Mini Catalog is coming to an end? It's always is difficult when awesome products retire, and this time is no different. I am excited for the fantastic new products, but sad to see some go. One of the bundles I will miss is the Cactus Cuties Stamp Set and coordinating punch. So, I decided to give them a last hurrah! And this is what I came up with!


Isn't this a darling bundle? I absolutely love it! The cute little cacti and pots are so adorable! 

Here is a close-up of the first card!



I used the two little sprig stamps to create the background on Petal Pink Cardstock, and the round pot image to create the stripes on the Mint Macaron strip of cardstock. The bow is made by taking apart the threads of the white Bakers Twin and then tying a bow. It gives it a fun, different look!

And here is a close-up of the little notecard.



This simple, little card came together really quickly and would be a perfect tag or note for a gift. 

And here is a bonus project! Did anyone else see strawberries in this bundle?


What do you think of the strawberries? While I was making the first two cards, I kept thinking that the bundle could be used to make some strawberries, so I whipped up this little note! I think it works! Do you agree? It's always fun to find unexpected ways to use these fantastic products! It makes them more versatile!

Monday Montage #214

 

It's that time again! Time for the Monday Montage Blog Hop! And you know what else it is time for? Graduations! I have already been to one graduation, and this week I will be going to four more! My son is graduating from High School as well as one niece, two nephews and my son's two best friends. So, I am in need of graduation cards! Are you in the same boat? Well, I have two down and four more to go! 


Have you seen the meme May-cember? If you haven't, look it up! My life is pretty hectic this time of year with all of the end of the school year activities, and even more so with the many graduates in my life. So, I needed to make a fairly quick card that I could duplicate. The Slim Sayings Bundle was just what I was looking for! All I need to do is change up the school colors!

Here is a close-up!


For the graduation cap, I just cut two squares. One in the school color, cut at 1-3/4", and one in Basic Black just slightly bigger. The Basic Black square makes the cap show up a little better. The tassel is made with embroidery floss and a retired brad that wasn't quite the right shade of green. But not to worry! I pulled out my Shaded Spruce Blends and colored the top of the brad! I finished it off with a few classic matte dots.

Monday Montage Week #213

 

Hello! Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! And happy mother's day to all of the wonderful women hopping with us! Today I am sharing the mother's day projects that I made for some important women in my life! Even though mother's day has come and gone, these cards can still be made with a variety of sentiments to suite your needs! 

I had so much fun playing with new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, and some products that are retiring soon! Here are some close-ups:

These cards feature the brand new Hues of Happiness Suite on pgs. 108-109 in the May 2022- April 2023 Annual Catalog! I am so in love with this suite! It jumped out at me during my first look at the new catalog, and I mean like it seemed to jump off the page! I love the fabulous stamp set and dies, the beautiful DSP and the richly colored Glossy Dots-it is all so gorgeous!! I know I will be making many more projects with this suite!

This card features the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle-a solid favorite of mine from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I mean, those boots!! How can you not love them? And the Pebbles Enamel Shapes are pretty great too! These fantastic products will only be available through June, so get them before they are gone!

I also made a few quick tags using the cute little flower and leaves stamps from the new Cup of Tea Stamp Set. This stamp set is part of the super fun Tea Boutique Suite on pgs. 12-13 of the new catty. I can see a lot of possibilities with this amazing suite as well!

Monday Montage Week #211

 

Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! We are so glad you are hopping with us today! Warmer days are more frequent now and I actually saw a ladybug the other day! So, to celebrate, I pulled out my Hello Ladybug Stamp Set and Ladybug Builder Punch and made a cheerful birthday card!

This is such a fun bundle! And the daisy image in the stamp set is the perfect size for the Medium Daisy Punch! On this card I punched and layered multiple images for full, dimensional flowers. And the ladybug is so cute all punched out with the Ladybug Builder Punch and little vellum wings peeking out from underneath! 

Here is a closer look:

Stampin' Write Markers were perfect for adding some color to the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Celebrate You Stamp Set and the In Color Jewels were a nice finishing touch!

Monday Montage Week #210

 

Hello! I'm so glad you are here today for the Monday Montage Blog Hop! The weather is getting warmer and spring is finally on it's way! So, to celebrate all things spring, I made a couple of simple note cards with butterflies and flowers! 

These cards are different than a lot of the ones I make because there is very little stamping on these cards. I only stamped the sentiments. The rest of the images are made with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks! 

Here is a closer look:

There are single flowers and a bunch of flowers that you can make with these masks! And the best part is, you can use the masks to layer different colors to give detail and depth to your images! They are so fun and versatile! For the floral card I used Sponge Daubers to layer the colors.

This card was so simple to make! I used the Blending Brushes to add the ink to this card, so easy and so beautiful! Just add a sentiment and you are done! I kept these cards simple, but you can add embellishments for a little more bling if you like!
