Monday Montage Week #188

 

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! I missed the last blog hop because it was Spring Break and there was a lot going on with the kids out of school and no time to stamp. So I am extra excited to hop today! And I used the cutest bundle for the projects I'm sharing today! 


It was so much fun to create with the Hey Chick Bundle! The Hey Chick Stamp Set is adorable, and the dies are out of this world amazing! I mean, look at the corn stalks, the chicken wire and the little coop! And there is also a die for little corn kernels to scatter on the ground for the darling chickens! I mean, CORN KERNELS!!! So. Dang. Cute. 

Here are the close-ups: 



In case you are wondering, the clouds in the sky on the card are made from one of the stencils that I received in the March Paper Pumpkin Kit! The stencils are so much fun!! I used Stampin' Blends to color in the chicken on the card, and Water Color Pencils to color the crazy haired-or feathered rather-chicken on the Reese's treat holder. You can see the supplies I used below. Just a note-This bundle is not carrying over into the new Annual Catalog. So, snatch it up while you still can! But, good news! The awesome Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon on the treat holder will be in the new catalog!!

Here is a photo of the bundle:

World of Good Quick Masculine Cards!

Hello all!
I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! I know I am! My son just left for Prom!! I can't believe he is old enough to date, let alone go to prom! He looked so handsome in his tux! Now here's hoping I get some pictures of him with his date!

The other reason today is so great is because I was able to squeeze in a little time to make some cards! And they were so quick and so inexpensive! Did you know that Stampin' Up! is having a Last Chance Sale on products from the current Annual Catalog? The new Annual Catalog goes live May 4, 2021, so it's out with the old to make room for the new! And while there are so many beautiful products coming in the new catalog-I literally can't wait until May 4th-there are some fabulous products that are retiring 😔. And one of the suites that is retiring is the World of Good Suite. 

The World of Good Suite is so great for masculine cards! And some of the products in the suite have been discounted for the sale-and I mean discounted A LOT!! For example, the World Map Dies that coordinate with this suite are $31.00 retail and right now they are $7.75!!!! Can you believe it? And another hidden gem in the suite is the World of Good Memories and More Card Pack! The retail price is $11.00 and it is a great deal at that price. But right now they are selling for $4.40!!!! That is an incredible deal! And while the card pack is meant for scrapbooking, it is also perfect for making cards! And making them quickly and with very few supplies!

I sat down and made 4 cards in less than an hour! And there are still so many more cards that I could make from this pack!

This is what I came up with!


I mainly used supplies from the Memories and More Card Pack! I didn't even stamp on them except for the splatters on the Discover Card! And you could use a Water Painter or even a paint brush or old toothbrush to get the splatter look!  Now did I mention the Card Pack is only $4.40? And I know I could get many more cards out of the pack! And if you add stamps and/or dies, you could get even more variety! I added coordinating cardstock for the card bases, the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and some retired gold twine that I had left over (but just so you know, we will be getting some gold and silver trim in the new Annual Catalog!). And that is it! 

Here is a look at my desk right after I finished the cards! You can see the bunches of supplies still left over underneath my cards!



And here are close-ups of each card!



These masculine cards are great for many occasions-especially graduations!! And it's that time of year to be thinking of the graduates in your life! The World of Good Memories and More Card Packs are only available while supplies last, so don't wait! Get a pack today! Below are the links to all of the World of Good Products. The sale prices aren't listed, but when you click on them you will see the sale price. You can also click here to see all of the products on the Last Chance Sale!

Hot Dog Birthday Card!


Good morning!

I have a cheerful card to share today that I made for my daughter's upcoming birthday! When my daughter was 8 months old, we decided to get a puppy. While I don't necessarily recommend getting a puppy when you have a baby, my daughter has grown up with our little mini dachshund and she loves him dearly.  When I saw the Hot Dog Stamp Set, I just knew I needed to have it! 

So, without further ado, here is her birthday card!


Isn't this a fun card? And the stamp set is adorable! Here is a closer look at this set!

There are so many different directions you can take this stamp set to make cards/projects for a variety of occasions! If you are a dog lover, you need this set! This set is so versatile that I also made a valentine for my older daughter using this set and pieces from the January Paper Pumpkin Kit! 


Paper Pumpkin makes it easy to make cards quickly! Most of the work is already done for you! I used Stampin' Blends to color in the images in the first card, and the watercolor pencils to color in the puppers on the second card. 

I hope you enjoyed these cards! If you would like to see more projects featuring the Hot Dog Stamp Set, check out @stampinthroughthecatalog on instagram. They are featuring this stamp set in their stories today!
