Wishes and Wonder for Monday Montage

I'm so glad to have you visiting today, or tonight, to check out our Monday Montage Blog Hop.  We are all stampers who love Stampin' Up! products and we get a kick out of sharing what we've been creating.  For me, I have loved stamping with the Wonder of the Season Suite of products which include the Wishes and Wonder Stamp Set and the North Pole Wonder Dies.  These stamps and matching dies are just my style.  I've made tons of cards, boxes, tags, and bags with this bundle so I thought I would share just a few.

This first card is rather striking in real life.  It includes no stamping.  Instead I highlighted the Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP.  The paper is gorgeous with it's red and gold foil designs.  I fussy cut this beautiful bell image, layered it on a gold and white text paper, and mounted it on a Basic Grey card base.  WOW, the gold, white, and grey is SO rich.

For the "Merry Christmas" greeting is used the Word Wishes Dies to cut Brass Foil.  I have a huge love for the brass color foil as it is super vibrant.  Do you see the row of triangles at the bottom? That's the edge of  the tag from the North Pole Wonders Dies.  Always look close for multiple ways to use your tools.

I can't say it enough that "I love the look of this card!"  The mix of colors, textures, sparkle, and layout just make me happy.  This is one of those cards that I'm just thrilled with the finished look.

My colors are Misty Moonlight, Basic Grey, Balmy Blue, Whisper White, and Vellum.

All the glitz comes from Wink of Stella, Basic Rhinestones, Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil, and Frost White Shimmer Paint.

I colored the sleigh image with light and dark Stampin' Blends in Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight, Smokey Slate, and Gray Granite.

The Wonder of the Season Suite includes a ribbon combo pack and some gems.  The gems are red and clear with gold flecks and swirls.  They are super pretty.  In the card below you can see the clear gems.  I tied the card with some of the gold cord that comes in the ribbon pack.

I love the simplicity of the color palette of this card.  Smokey Slate, Misty Moonlight, Whisper White, and a touch of gold.  

I wish you a joyful Christmas season and happy time doing a little blog hoppin'.  Your next stop is with the beautiful Julie Warnick.  I'm heading there too to see just what crafty creating she has been doing.
