It’s time for another round of the Monday Montage Blog Hop!
Today I created a cute card using My Digital Studio. I love how quickly and easily projects come together using the download kits. The colors always look great together and all the stamps, accessories, and DSP are bundled together to take all the guess work out of creating beautiful projects. The kit I used for this project is called Eggceptional Easter. I printed the project through the print service Stampin’ Up has, and then added “real” rhinestones to the front of the card to give it a little extra bling.
On the inside I created a text box over the curly label punch so that I could type the Easter sentiment, and then I added a few Easter eggs that were included in the kit.
Thanks for checking out today’s project. Don’t forget to check out the other beautiful projects featured this week by clucking back or next.
This is a pocket card made using the You’re Lovely stamp set. It also showcases the Watercolor Wonder DSP.
To make the pocket card simply cut your card base 4 1/4” x 11”. Then score at 1” and 5 1/2”. Add DSP of your choice to the bottom of the card, and fold on the score lines to finish the card base. Finish it off by tieing some pretty ribbon around the small folded section at the top.
Here is what it looks like with the pocket pulled out. All that’s left now is adding a little message, and it’s ready to go in the mail!
Today I’m showing you a cute card made using the Banner Blast stamp set offered during Sale-a-bration. I also used the coordinating punch that is being offered.
This card came together pretty quickly. I simply stamped each banner design that I wanted to use on a small scrap piece of Whisper White, and then used the banner punch to punch them out. I also used the banner punch to cut the banner shape on the ends of the Silver Glimmer Paper.
It’s a little difficult to see in the picture but I created a polka dot background on the black layer to replicate the cute pattern on the banner. I simply stamped all over using the eraser end of a pencil and dipping it in Versamark. Then I embossed it in clear embossing powder.
So you may be wondering how you can get this awesome set or punch. All you have to do is place a $50 order and you can pick from a selection of several stamp sets and accessories FREE! How awesome is that!
This card was made using the See Ya Later stamp set, which is one of the free sets you can choose with every $50 of merchandise you order.
The background is embossed with the dots embossing folder on Pool Party Core’dinations Card Stock. Then I used a sanding block to distress the dots. The DSP used on the flag piece is another free option during Sale-a-bration. It’s called Sweet Sorbet. I finished the card off by adding a little zigzag stitching and a small rhinestone.
Right now this set is my favorite set offered for Sale-a-bration. Let me know what sab item is your favorite in the comments.
The image I used is from thestamp set called Love You to the Moon, and the background is embossed with the Arrows embossing folder. Thank you for checking out my project today.

Today I have a super quick card to show you. The best part is that it really doesn’t use very many supplies so it’s great for beginners that don’t have a large stash to pull from just yet.
The main stamp sets I used for this card are Happy Watercolor and Perfect Pennants. I love the watercolor stamp because it looks like I spent time coloring the background, when in reality all I did was stamp the image twice.
For the water coloring I stamped the watercolor image in So Saffron, and then I stamped above it again without reinking the stamp so that in would be even lighter (Giving it an ombré effect).
I added a small flower punch, some bling, and washi tape to finish the card.
Don’t forget to add a little to the inside to give it a special finishing touch.
It’s time for another edition of the Monday Montage Blog Hop.
Today’s card features several items from the new Occasions Catalog.
The flower images used are from the Simple Stems stamp set. I also used Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and Gold Sequin Trim. It’s hard to tell in the photo above, but I embossed the greeting “friend” in gold on the solid gold washi tape. The greeting is from the stamp set called Fabulous Phrases.
Here is a close up of the strip of washi tape that I used to emboss the greeting.

Welcome back to another round of the Monday Montage Blog Hop.
Today I’m sharing a simple card that includes a sneak peek of products from the upcoming occasions catalog and sale-a-bration.
The image used is from the See Ya Later stamp set that will be a FREE set available during Sale-a-bration. I also used Retro Fresh DSP, and it can be ordered from the Occasions catalog in January. Then I added stitching to the DSP, and I finished the card by adding Gold Sequin Trim. The sequins are sooooo addicting! Lately, I can’t seem to make a project without adding them.
I hope you enjoyed this simple card, and please be sure to click one of the links below to continue the blog hop.
Today I have a quick card to share with you. I wasn’t able to get a very good picture, so it really doesn’t show just how pretty the embossing is.
I used the Apothecary Art stamp set, and then I embossed it in gold embossing powder. It was cut using the LabelFramelits. Then I water colored the flowers in Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. The “With Sympathy” is from the stamp set called Loving Thoughts.

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.
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.
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.
For 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.
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.

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.

Today I have a clean and simple Halloween card to share with you.
This card came together pretty quickly. I used the Witches’ Brew Washi Tape, and the background was stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I cut the bat using my silhouette and the itty bitty bat punch download.
Now don’t forget to continue the hop by clicking next or back. There are so many stamped projects to see.

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