Flourishes Stamps and PageMaps 49

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, May 31, 2012 @ 10:51 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Several designers from Flourishes Stamps teams have joined along with Becky Fleck of PageMaps today! In case you are not familiar with Becky, she has an amazing site (click HERE) with loads of various sketches along with wonderful inspiring samples!
Shown below, is the fun sketch that I was given to create with:
and here's my interpretation:
To create this card, I stamped one of the beautiful label images from Flourishes Country Charm Labels with VersaMark ink, heat embossed using white embossing powder then cut using a Spellbinders Grommet Tags die then stamped a sweet sentiment from Flourishes Hydrangea on the tag. I finished off the card with 3 beautiful blossoms made using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies. The pretty patterned paper used is from the Pink Paislee London Market collection.
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for the complete list of designers who created cards as well. Be Sweet :)

So Sweet...Guest Designing 36

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 30, 2012 @ 8:36 PM | , ,

Hello! Here today to share the last two layouts of four that I made as the May Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club using items from the Main Kit. First I would like to thank Pam Rangel, Owner of the My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club for the wonderful opportunity! The May Main Kit contains many pretty products from the Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee collection.

First up, is a layout featuring a pretty photo of sweet Meredith
surrounded by many flowers. The yellows ones shown below are included with the kit and the others were homemade by me using various punches. 
My fourth and final layout shown below features a photo of my dear Great Niece, Madison and my four legged furry buddy, Griffin :) The decorative header and colorful bouquet on the tag are from the Spring Jubilee press on pack and all the butterflies are Spring Jubilee Chipboard Stickers  ~I  just love all the detail and color in those items which are all included in the Main Kit!
Thanks so much for looking! I hope you enjoyed my layouts. For complete details, please be sure to visit the My Creative Scrapbook Kit site and for inspiration, the My Creative Scrapbook Kit gallery. Be Sweet :)

birthday wishes... 51

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 29, 2012 @ 6:10 PM | , ,

Hi there! I have several friends who will be celebrating their birthday's this month so here I am with another Birthday card to share. I played along for the first time with the PTI Make It Monday inspiration which is to create a Pocket Card. I dusted off the PTI Sending You stamp set and had lots of stamping fun!
Shown below is what the card looks like when inside the pocket. I didn't even use a single piece of patterned paper! I stamped both the pocket and tag with the beautiful blooms and leaves images 
and used a Sizzix embossing folder for the card background:
For color inspiration, I played along with the current ColourQ challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I played along with the current retro sketches challenge:

Hi there! Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend if you celebrated! I'm here with an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. This week, I am the hostess and would like to challenge all of you to create a Thank You card card or tag.
I made a rather clean and simple Thank You card. I stamped the beautiful sentiment from Flourishes Hydrangea stamp set on a piece of pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden collection added a decorative die cut border using a combination of Spellbinders  Classic Decorative Inserts Four and Classic Edges Two die templates.
I finished off the card with some glittery rolled roses made using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die templates.

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all who celebrate! Many thanks to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives both past and present to protect the U.S.A. Do you have any fun plans? Scott and I are currently in San Diego for the long weekend. I taught my first card making class at Paper Tales today and met five lovely ladies who seemed to have as fun as I did :) I'm looking forward to meeting a few more ladies during tomorrow's class.

I made this card in celebration of Memorial Day using the newly released fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Declaration collection along with stamps from PTI that have never kissed an ink pad until now! 
The Pink Paislee Declaration collection is a versatile collection full of a variety of patterns that may easily be used to create all sorts of themed projects!

Thank you sew much...WMS May Blog Party 58

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 23, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | ,

Hi there! Welcome to the May Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party! This month's theme is to create a project using felt and cozy fabrics.
I made a heart shaped pillow using cozy, flannel fabric, (which by the way is slim pickins this time of year in the desert with temperatures soaring above 100 degrees), along with a few felt rolled roses.
The tag was made using a combination of stamps. The label is from Very Vintage Labels No. 4 that was cut using a Spellbinders Labels Fourhttp://spellbinderspaperarts.com/products/p-143-labels-four.aspx die and the sentiment is from Sewing Box - Hugs.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed creating it! Off to be inspired with all the other cozy fabric and felt projects! Be Sweet :)

Other products used:
Dies: Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, Sizzix rolled rose die, MFT rolled rose die, Vagabond

beauty...guest designing 32

Mona Pendleton | @ 12:51 AM | , ,

Hello! Popping in to share one of the four layouts I made for my May Guest Designer position with My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club. This layout features sweet Meredith and pretty Pink Paislee paper from the Spring Jubilee collection which is from the Main May kit.
 I combined manufactured flowers that are included in the May Main kit along with various homemade flowers made with cardstock and punches. One of the requirements for creating the projects for My Creative Scrapbook, was to only use punches ~ dies were not permitted. So I hauled in a box of punches from the garage and went to town punching away!
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to check out My Creative Scrapbook for complete information. Be Sweet :)
