Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 25, 2014 @ 7:00 AM |

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend! Today I'm joining along with the October Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's hop theme is to pick one of the non-traditional color schemes offered and create a holiday project. I opted for a bright non-traditonal color scheme for me:
and I made a VERY clean and simple card using a combination of PTI stamps:
I just love that layered Christmas tree ~ I think it has such a country charm :)

Hi there! I'm so happy the weekend is here! Today I have a few cards to share featuring a variety of Pion Design papers. First up are two similar Christmas cards: one red and one blue, both made using various pretty patterned papers from the Siri's Kitchen 6x6 collection. Don't be fooled by the name! Many of the papers within this collection are quite versatile.

Dream everyday...Guest Designing 20

Mona Pendleton | @ 9:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Today I have the honor of being a guest designer for the talented Kasia Krzyminska on her blog. I am sharing a layout featuring one of the many beautiful stencils that she has designed: The Trapezoid Flower:

I scrapped a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken more than 14 years ago. Time sure does fly! I created lots of texture using  The Trapezoid Flower stencil along with molding paste:
Once the molding paste was dry, I added color using various paints and inks. I added a bit more detail using fun stamps from Kasia's Stamp Set 3:
I embellished with die cuts, flowers from my stash and a resin birdcage:
The title is a combination of a chipboard piece from my stash and a stamp from Kasia's Stamp Set 3:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Stuck?! sketch challenge:
Kasia's products used:

Many thanks for stopping by! If you have a chance, please be sure to stop by Kasia's blog for more details regarding my guest designing and for some amazing inspiration from Kasia!
