What’s Your Type Favor

HopWelcome

WOW…we have made it to the end of Week 2 and another week filled with FABULOUS Card Sets by our incredible design team!  And since it is Saturday the team is going to once again share a favor using the same set they used for their card set.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from the Create with Connie and Mary site.  Now is a GREAT time to subscribe and get ideas for card classes to take you through the end of this catalog!

Since my set was filled with Geometrical images, I decided that my favor also needed to be ‘geometrical’ in shape so I am sharing another triangle favor like I did before,  And for those of you who are subscribers to Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Celebrations, you know how well this goes with my card set!

Sheltering Tree

CCMC351Oh what a fun sketch challenge we have for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I’m still on a kick using some ‘neglecting’ dsp that I got when the new catalog first came out and I thought the Gold Soiree Specialty dsp would be fun paired up with the Sheltering Tree set for our sketch challenge this week.

Here’s the details –

  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Gold Soiree dsp – 3 prints 7/8 x 4 1/4.  I did all the same size so I could play with how to arrange them.  Add to card front and trim off the one of a diagonal.
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Stamp tree trunk/branches in Crumb Cake, leaves and swish in Pistachio Pudding, extra leaves in Rose Coral Chalk.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Calypso Coral – 1/2 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Calypso Coral Candy Dots to finish off

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

Sweet Stuff Favor

HopWelcome

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Celebrations Week 1 Design Team Blog Hop!  We have had a FANTASTIC week of card sets for our subscribers and on Saturdays we change things up a bit…we each do a favor to match our card set AND we share these publicly!  If you are going forward through the hop, you arrive here from the Create with Connie and Mary site.  Even though it is the end of Week 1 NOW is the time to subscribe and get GREAT card set ideas for finishing up the catalog year!

This week my card set used Sweet Stuff so I used this set for my little favor today!

Wk 1Favor

Isn’t this just the CUTEST?  It is made using the French Fry Die.  I had seen this on Brian King’s blog and he had a link to someone else’s blog that had a video on making this.  In that tutorial you needed to use a full sheet of cardstock to make the basket but I figured out a quicker and easier way to do it and I have a couple pictures to show you.

DSC03440DSC03441Start with the French Fry Die and a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 sheet of cardstock folded.  Lay it on the ‘back’ portion of the French Fry die just cover the rounded top portion.  The FOLD is along the bottom with the open end at the top.

DSC03442DSC03443

This is what you piece cut out.  Next cut the oval in the top for the ‘handles’.  This would be a good time to run through an embossing folder if that is what you want.  I left mine folded and did both sides at the same time…that’s why I picked the chevron…would look right front and back.

DSC03444DSC03445

Fold along all the edges and put together at the sides.

DSC03446And there you have it…a quick and easy basket and the best part…you can get TWO out of each sheet of cardstock!  When you have a lot to do…it’s nice to be able to maximize the use of your cardstock.

 

 

Here’s the details for my little favor:

  • So Saffron – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded.  Cut out using the French Fry box using the tutorial above, punch out the handle, and run through the Chevron Embossing folder and put together as per the tutorial above.
  • Wild Wasabi – 3/8 x 2, stamp greeting using StazOn Jet Black, color using Garden Green marker, cut into a banner and add to basket using dimensionals and glue dots.
  • Stamp flower 3 times using StazOn Jet Black, color center of each flower using Daffodil Delight, cut our and add to basket.
  • Wild Wasabi and White Cotton Twine – tie together into a bow and add using glue dots.
  • Add Dazzling Details to center of each flower and on the words.

Flower Patch

SUOBoy do we have an interesting challenge for the SUO Challenge this time!  The theme is ‘use your team colors’ for a card.  Well if you know me, you know I live in Ohio…Xenia Ohio to be exact.  But if you know where I grew up, you would know that is Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  Knowing that it would be easy to guess I’m showing my team color for the Pittsburgh Steelers – Gold and Black!  Well in this case it is Crushed Curry and Black but that works for me!

Here’s the details –

  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp greeting using Memento Black, layer on Basic Black 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp flowers using Crushed Curry and center and leaves in Memento Black (sorry Jackie!), cut out using framelits, bend flower edges add centers using dimensionals then add to card front.
  • Color some rhinestones using the darkest Daffodil Delight blendabilities (sorry…I know they are not available anymore but I do LOVE them!) and add to centers of flowers and under the greeting.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!

Set(s): Flower Patch
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crushed Curry
Ink: Memento Black, Crushed Curry, Blendabilities: Daffodil Delight
Other: Flower Flair Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

What’s Your Type

CAS319I have been having so much fun playing with the What’s Your Type set…there is just so many different things you can do with this set.

I saw that the CAS challenge is to do a masculine card and so since I had this set sitting out on my desk I thought I’d just go with this for the card today.  I’ve also been using my Candy Dots a lot recently so thought that would be a fun add on for this card.

Here’s the details –

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp solid triangle using Night of Navy and Baked Brown Sugar, stamp striped diagonal triangle using Marina Mist.
  • Stamp HAPPY in Baked Brown Sugar, and birthday in Night of Navy (both from Celebrate Today set)
  • Night of Navy – 5/8 x 5 1/2 two strips and add one to each side of the Very Vanilla panel and add to card front
  • Add Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy Candy Dots to finish off
