Thanks for checking in on the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

I’m really in the Christmas spirit these days.  I’ve started listening to Christmas music and watching all the great Christmas movies that are starting  to appear on tv.  So of course, my stamping projects are Christmas themed.  I spent the weekend at a crafting retreat and decided to make a variety of cards using the Endless Wishes photopolymer set.  Here are some of the cards I created.

Bermuda Bay Endless Wishes

This card is stamped in Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush, and Coastal Cabana. I also added a little piercing under the greeting, and of course I had to add some splatters from Gorgeous Grunge.

Simple Endless Wishes

This is a clean and simple card I created with Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, and Pool Party.  Then I just added a small strip of  Winter Frost DSP.  I think it would also be really cute to add some Island  Indigo Baker’s Twine to the card as well.

Gold Embossed Endless WishesFor this card, I stamped the images in Versamark and embossed them in gold embossing powder.  I also used Gorgeous Grunge to add some splatters above the greeting.  I really like this card, but if I were to it again I would probably stamp the creating on the card base so that it is easier to see.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards. Don’t forget to click back or next to check out the awesome projects these other talented ladies have to share with you.

Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

I’m sharing a super quick Christmas card today.  I decided to pull out the stamp set called A Banner Christmas to create it.  It’s the first chance I’ve had to play with this set, so I really enjoyed deciding what to make with it.

I used my trusty (and often ignored) stamp-a-ma-jig to create the design at the bottom of the card so that I could get the image lined up perfectly.

Thanks for joining me for another round of the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

I’m so excited to share this card with you today.  It features the new Thinlits Card Dies.  I fell in love with these the first time I used them!  They are super quick and easy, but you wouldn’t know by just looking at the finished card.

In addition to the Thinlets Card Dies, I used the Snowflake Soiree stamp set.  The greeting and sentiment are from the More Merry Messages stamp set. If you are wondering why you can’t seem to find these sets in the catalogs, it is because they are two of the few carry over sets only shown in the online store.  I also used the new silver ribbon, and Winter Frost DSP stack from the Holiday catalog.

Now be sure to click either the back button or the next button in order to see everyone’s fabulous projects.

Thanks for joining me for the Monday Montage Blog Hop.

Today I’m showing you a cute and really simple Christmas card.

Joy to the World

I had a sketch in mind when I sat down to make this card, and I knew I wanted to use the 2 1/2” circle punch.  I decided to use the Joy to the World stamp set for the greeting.  If you take a look at the set you will notice that the Joy to the World stamp is all one line, so to make it fit within the circle I chose to use markers instead of an inkpad.  I colored the “Joy” part of the stamp in Cherry Cobbler and stamped it on the cardstock.  Then I cleaned the stamp and colored “to the world” in Old Olive and stamped it just beneath “Joy”.

 I hope you enjoyed this project.  Be sure to check back in soon for some cute Halloween treat ideas.

Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.  I’m so excited that the Design Team Finalists will be continuing a blog hop every other Monday.

Today I’m showing you Christmas card.  I know you must be thinking but it’s only August, however, I start designing holiday projects in early July or August.  Past experience has shown me if I don’t start early, then it never gets made.

Special Season Christmas Card

Special Season Card Inside

The tree image on the front of this card is from the Special Season stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped it on Brushed Silver card stock, and then embossed it with Silver embossing powder.  This card is stunning in person.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice.  For the inside of the card I used Ornament Keepsakes and More Merry Messages. These two sets are on the carry over list that aren’t shown in the current catalog.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 10 My Digital Studio Christmas Tags

» 4 September, 2012 » 3-D Projects, Christmas, My Digital Studio » 4,295 comments

12 Days of Christmas is going by so quickly.  I can’t believe we are already on Day 10! Today I wanted to show you how to make some very cute and simple gift tags using MDS2.  I used the Snow Festival DSP Download (paper 2).  Immediately when I saw this sheet of paper, I knew it would be perfect for making some quick tags.  I opened a new document selected this paper.  Then I added the flag punch to most of the squares that don’t already have a journaling box.  Next I added the to/from stamp from A Cute Christmas stamp brush download.  Then you just print the page and cut the tags apart.  The four squares that don’t have a to/from stamped will be stamped on the back.  They were to large to add the stamping on the front.

» 30 August, 2012 » 3-D Projects, Big Shot, Christmas » 915 comments

I made these gift tags using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits.

I stamped the ornaments in Old Olive and Real Red, and then I cut the ornaments using the framelits.  I added some White Baker’s Twine to the tags.

I created a topper, placed the tags in a medium cello bag and placed the topper on the cello bag.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 6 Holiday Catalog Ornament

» 27 August, 2012 » 3-D Projects, Big Shot, Christmas, Video Tutorials » 0 comments

Today I’m sharing my take on the holiday ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalog. I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits. Instead of using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive like the cover, I chose to use Baja Breeze and Early Espresso. These are my favorite colors. I wear a lot of chocolate and aqua clothes & my room is decorated in these colors. Needless to say, there was no question about what colors I wanted to use to make this ornament.
