Masking a Mask - Monday Montage


Hey everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I'm excited that its time for another Monday Montage Blog Hop. I have a pretty simple card to share with you, but I think you love the technique!


So, on this card I masked my Dots Decorative Mask. I just used my Stampin' Trimmer to cut a square out of a piece of card stock that was bigger than my card. Then attached it to the back of my mask with washi tape and used a Sponge Dauber to get the dots that I wanted. Now, you don't just have to do squares. Imagine using any of our Framelit Dies for different shapes!


I used the Endless Wishes (so excited that this is in the Holiday Catalog!) stamp set with some Silver Ink for a pretty effect over the Pool Party Ink. If you have been following me lately, you should know by now that I am obsessed with the Handheld Stapler and Mini Staples! It is such an easy way to embellish with a couple of ribbons and a staple!

Stampin' Supplies:
  • Endless Wishes Stamp Set
  • Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pads
  • Silver Encore Ink
  • Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz CS
  • Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks
  • Sponge Dauber
  • Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon
  • Silver Taffeta Ribbon
  • Handheld Stapler and Mini Staples
  • Scrap CS and Washi Tape

Tiny Trick or Treat Boxes - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Yay! It's time for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Everyone always creates something amazing, so I know you won't want to miss anything. Just be sure to click the "Next" button at the end of each post until you have visited everyone. Now, on to my project for this week...prepare yourself for some cuteness overload!


The Tiny Treat Boxes are super small, and anything small is instantly adorable. Then add some polka dots and stripes and OMG! they are the cutest little things ever! It was beyond easy to do too! I just used StazOn and a Sponge Dauber with the Decorative Masks and I was done.


I fell in love with the White & Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim as soon as I seen it in the Holiday Catalog. When I got it, the trim was everything I hoped it would be! The chunkiness of the trim provides some awesome texture and contrasts nicely with the small size of these boxes.


I just did some simple tags using the Ghoulish Greetings stamp set to make these perfect for Halloween. The Silver Glimmer Paper banner attached with a staple adds just enough to make them special! These are super easy to whip up! I think I might make the whole package (there are 25 of them!) like this to take to work and for Trick or Treaters (we only ever get like six). Imagine switching up the colors for any holiday or birthday...they would be great for anything!

Stampin' Supplies:

  • Ghoulish Greetings Stamp Set
  • Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin' Pad
  • StazOn
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Tiny Treat Boxes
  • Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Banner Punch
  • Handheld Stapler with Mini Staples
  • White & Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim
  • Basic Black Baker's Twine

Hello Honey Kindness

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well! Mine has been crazy busy, so I just have a quick post for you today. This is another cute and simple card that features the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.


This card is pretty straight forward to make. I just started by stamping the star burst image twice in Hello Honey and then adding the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss. Just a few small layers of Kraft Card Stock and Mossy Meadow Ribbon completed the card.



I love the new stapler! Attaching the vellum butterfly with a staple is just so cute! The stapler is definitely one of my must have items!

  • Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set

Hello Fall Box

Hey everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? I had a fun filled weekend with some archery, my first ever Tigers game, and of course some stamping! I worked on some really great projects that I am excited to share with you in the coming weeks! For today, I wanted to share with you this little autumn themed gift box.





The Crushed Curry box was made with the new Gift Box Punch Board. This new punch board allows you to create boxes in a variety of sizes in just a few minutes! There is no need to pull out your ruler and figure out measurements. You can decorate these boxes in just about any way! For this one I just made a simple belly band out of the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper.



I embellished the box simply with some Linen Tread, Venetian Crochet Trim, and a Gold Metal Button. All of these elements together scream autumn to me. I fished the box off with a quick little flag stamped with a sentiment from the For All Things stamp set. This would make a great little just because gift as the fall season approaches!

Stampin' Supplies:

  • For All Things Stamp Set
  • Cajun Craze Classic Stampin' Pad
  • Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla CS
  • Color Me Autumn DSP
  • Linen Thread
  • Venetian Crochet Trim
  • Gold Basic Metal Buttons
  • Gift Box Punch Board

You Did It! - CCC#044

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend so far! Since classes started back up, I feel like I have been crazy busy. I did get a little stamping time in yesterday though for the new card challenge over on Catherine & Cathy Create. The challenge this month is "Fun with Masks!" I love the decorative masks in the Annual Catalog, so I instantly reached for them!


I thought it would be fun to pair the stars mask with the Bright & Beautiful stamp set to make a non-Christmas card. I embossed the smaller star image with White Stampin' Emboss Powder right on the Bermuda Bay card base. Then I used the Star Framelit Dies to cut out the star of the layer on top. This creates a fun look of reverse layering. Something different from always layering things on top of each other!


Do you see how the Smoky Slate stars are sparkly??? This is one of my favorite tricks! Instead of just adding Smoky Slate Ink to rubbing alcohol to spritz, I added re-inker to some Vanilla Smooch Spritz. That's right! You can color the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to make any color of sparkly spritz! Just one tip-when using the Decorative Masks, a light hand is better. If you spritz too much, your image becomes blurry.

Stampin' Supplies:
  • Bright & Beautiful and Bravo Stamp Sets
  • Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin' Pad
  • Smoky Slate Classic Ink Refill
  • Versa Mark
  • Bermuda Bay and Whisper White CS
  • White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Embossing Buddy, and Heat Tool
  • Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask
  • Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
  • Stars Framelit Dies
  • Basics Hodgepodge  Clips
  • Blushing Bide Baker's Twine
Now it is you turn to play with masks and join the fun at Catherine & Cathy Create!

Smiles :)
