Nothing's Better Than Monday Montage

Welcome to another Monday Montage Blog Hop.  I am happy you are here at Seeinginkspots to see some stamp projects.  These two card designs feature the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set and matching Dies.

To start, I gave myself a "pumpkin spice" theme to spark my stampin' mojo.  I flipped through the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP to find colors that fit my theme  From there I grabbed ink pads to match the papers:  Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Poppy Parade, and Early Espresso.

For the coffee mug swirled watercolor look I used a tiny ramekin painted with water to stamp the rings.  I love how they look like a mug left a ring on the table.  Because of the retro style of this stamp set I designed this coffee card to look like a diner menu.

There is lots of sponging and splattering to base the Thick Whisper White Cardstock base.  Then I used the small sparkle image in the set to add a hint more of color to the background.  I will say that tiny little stamp is adorable.

For this slim line layout I definitely must have been craving a candy bar.  By the way, Twix is my favorite.

The highlight of this card is the embossed "chocolate" squares.  To get that look you need a Silicone Mat and your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  The trick is to put your die cut upside down when you run it through your machine.
