October Control Freaks Blog Hop ~ Gratitude
Monday Montage 82

Monday Montage 81



Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop!  Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring projects.  Be sure to visit all the stops....you don't want to miss anything!



So do you ever bite off more than you can chew?  I'm sitting in my studio, wondering where I can find a few extra hours this week or if there would be any way to clone myself.  Even though I am slightly overwhelmed with all of the things I need to get done, I can't help but be grateful for all the good things that have come my way.  I'll be giving this special card to someone that has definitely been a blessing in my life this year.  It features the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and an abundance of Fall colors.




For the layout, I used a sketch from Mojo Monday.  The sketch featured lots of layers, so I knew it would be perfect to pair the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Layering Circles & Squares Framelits Dies.  I was still able to maintain a lot of white space to keep the card clean & simple.




I stamped the leaf accents in Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, and Soft Suede.  Immediately after stamping, I used a tiny bit of ink with the Clear Wink of Stella brush to add some shimmer and additional color to the leaves.  The Petals & Paisleys bundle features so many stamp and die combinations.  The possibilities are endless!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  You'll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
