Monday Montage #216

It's Sunday evening, Father's Day and Monday Montage ... not to mention the weekend is over already! But my fellow Monday Montagers and I still home some fun and pretty things to share with y'all ... so c'mon along!

Customizable newspaper front pages ... how cool is this??? I cut some 1" strips from the Regals DSP to use as the backdrop to this birthday front page ... so much fun! I added a couple of pieces of 3/4" Frayed White Ribbon and a handful of Champagne Rhinestones and VOILA! This one came together pretty quickly, even with a bit of fussy cutting.

The rhinestones add just enough bling to the birthday candles and the headline ... perfect for a happy birthday celebration!

Stamps: Breaking News
Paper: Whisper White,Regals DSP
Ink: Black Memento, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Blackberry Bliss, Real Red
Accessories: White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon, Champagne Rhinestones

Here's a blog roll just in case you get "stuck" trying to hop around ...

Ahhhh Monday ... it's back to work and the daily routine again! I really hope I get to do some fun crafting squeezed into it somewhere!

Favorite In Colors with the Freaks - 2022 Edition!

It's time to play with the Control Freaks one again! Did you see Melissa Davies ' ADORABLE card?? Check it out if you haven't ... I LOVE IT!! This month we are highlighting our favorite new In Colors ... and the choice for me was very easy!

I am a GREEN freak (as well as being a Control Freak!)!! Parakeet Party is right up my alley!!

When I was about 5 years old my sweet mama painted my bedroom pink ... and my furniture was antiqued green ... which means I have always loved the combo of green and pink together. Hence, my card!

Stamps: Sunny Splash
Paper: Whisper White, Polished Pink, Basic Black
Ink: Polished Pink, Parakeet Party, Versamark
Accessories: Tailor Made Tags Dies, Beautiful Shapes Dies, Black & White 1/4" Gingham Ribbon, Glossy Enamel Dots, Parakeet Party Bakers Twine, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Artistic Mix Decorative Masks

Swimsuits and gingham are such a good combo, don't you think? I'm not sure if the Baker's Twine bows are a little too much, but I decided that they were ok!

Next up? Cindy Elam! Her cards are beautiful!!

Monday Montage #215

It's Monday Montage time again, my friends!! I have done more crafting this week than I have during any other week in a loooooong time! (I'm participating in a 7-day scrapbook challenge on Instagram and it's been keeping me busy!).

I got to dig into a few of my fun new goodies ... and used some DSP that retired with the last mini catalog ... couldn't help myself!

I am LOVING the amount of fun, new masculine sets in this year's catalog! Having been on MANY week-long canoe trips with my hubby, I KNEW that this set was a MUST HAVE! It's just SOOOO good! This is where I couldn't resist using the Waves of the Ocean DSP that came out in the last mini catalog and retired last month.  It is just too-too perfect for this set!

I colored the canoe with my Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends and the guy's hat and oars with the Bermuda Bay Blends.  I also used the Blue Foils DSP behind the Waves DSP ... it's just such a great combo!

I tucked a little big of black and white Gingham Ribbon under the edge (and can see from the photo that I didn't press the top layer down all the way before I took the photo ... YIKES!)! I'm pretty happy with how this turned out!

Stamps: Adventurous Journey
Paper: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Waves of the Ocean DSP
Ink: Black Memento, Versamark, Granny Apple Green; Stampin' Blends - Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Whisper White Embossing Powder, Gingham Ribbon

Here's a blog roll just in case you get "stuck" trying to hop around ...

Feeling QUITE happy with the turn in the weather ... I'm thinking we may FINALLY be coming out of snowy weather and COOOLD temps and moving into SUMMER!! YAY!!
