mim#110: collage elements

Dawn McVey is hosting this week’s Make It Monday and she has challenged us to create a stamped collage. Even after watching the video a few times, I wasn’t quite sure how to tackle this. I wish that Dawn had shared a few more of her tricks with us as she made her fabulous card. It could be that there were more suggestions in the video, but my very stuffy head made it difficult for anything to be absorbed. (The allergy season seems to have started early here. Ugh.)

When starting this card, I knew that I wanted to make a birthday card and include elements from this tag by Nichole Heady. (It’s the second project.) I pulled out all of my PTI birthday stamp sets along with other sets that would work in a collage and got to stamping.

While uploading my photos, I came across another collage card that I had made for my daughter to send her an iTunes gift card. It appears that I lean toward neutrals with a single color pop when stamping collages.

We are in the midst of some gorgeous spring weather, so it’s time for me to go out and do some yard work. Hope you have some sunshine in your world today.

These are both lovely collages! And your neutral colours, with one pop of bright colour, is a great technique!

Nancy both of these cards are beautiful and they don't need a button or a bow. There is just the right amount of detail. I especially love the musical notes!

Both of these cards are terrific--I like the simple color schemes, when there is so much else going on.

Thank you for your sweet comments, Nancy! I really appreciate your kind words on my blog. Love these collaged cards. Amazing! Need to give this a try!

Hey, Nancy. Can you give me your email address (you can reach me through the "contact me" tab on my blog)? I wanted to respond to you about the comment you left on my blog today, but I can't find an email through Blogger. Thanks!
