Hello friends! I am so honored to be back today to share some more cards showcasing some gorgeous stamps this month. Nicole from Sweet Stamp Shop invited me to design with her new release this month, and I am so happy that she did!The reveal was on Nov 14th, and I shared some cards for that here, but I am also going to share some more cards today. First up, I'll showcase Monogram it-Stationery and Monogram Alpha with you; done in two super trendy ways!
Reindeers are totally trending right now, in fact I am thinking of adding a feminine gold one to the nursery decor. Monogram it-Stationery has a great reindeer image with cute little foliage details at the top! For this card I wanted to show you that reindeer don't have to be a Christmas only motif; with the right colors you can make a card for any time of the year.
I stamped the reindeers in bright pink, red, lime and green and created a diamond pattern. I added a few pearls to the antlers for texture and used the Monogram Alpha set to create a custom sentiment. I liked this design so much, I had to make a second card!
This card uses the same reindeer stamp, but also the leafy garland, and has some more masculine colors like lime, gray, dark blue and turquoise.
The Monogram Alpha set is so easy to use! To get perfectly straight lines, I put a little washi tape down after lining the card up on my grid cutting mat, and then stamped-instant sentiment!
On this card, I used the Speedy Greetings set and the adorable matching flair. This is a fun mini set with some cute little images like trees, reindeer and speedy little car.
I stamped the tree and sentiment on the card, and then adhered the coordinating flair to give it dimension. I used patterned paper that coordinated with the colors, but wasn't necessarily Christmas based because I didn't want this card to look to "themey."
My final card is a lovely thanks card from the "Both of Us." I am so happy that the Monogram it-Stationery set includes this stamp. Sometimes it's nice to have a thank you card that includes both you and your husband, especially for joint gifts. First, I die cut a crest from the Silhouette store, and then masked the banner and sentiment stamp. After that, I masked a floral and leaf arrangement on top.
I added the ribbon stamps at the bottom of the crest. To adhere the crest, I trimmed a little from it where the banner overlaps so you could see the "from both of us" sentiment and lastly, I stamped thanks with alpha stamps from the Monogram Alpha set.
