What’s Your Type

CCMC314I am just soooooo lovin’ this set!  I know when they showed it to us during the catalog preview I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.  Since it was ‘sitting on top of my desk’ since I had done this card on Saturday and this card on Tuesday, I figured it would work perfectly for the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary.  Hmmm…I think I was right.  I think this just turned out sooooo cute! and would be perfect for a more masculine or especially for a teen card!

Here’s the details -

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Tangelo Twist dotted dsp (Confetti Celebrations) – 1/2 x 5 1/2 and add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 – stamp the diagnoal line triangle in Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay and Basic Grey
  • Stamp the greeting using Basic Grey

Hi There

CAS283What a fun CAS challenge this week.  The challenge is to use scraps of ribbon.  Okay…this is something that I have TONS of scraps and I hardly knew where to begin!  I just LOVE the rainbow colors of the ribbon and it is perfect for the rainbow challenge on casology!

Wanting to stay in the CAS style I decided to pick some of my matching chevron ribbon pieces and use them to make a nice little ribbon banner border.  This card was so quick and easy to make!

Here’s the detail -

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Basic Black ink
  • Add 6 pieces of Chevron Ribbon that have been cut into banners.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals

Yep that really is all there is to it!

What’s Your Type?

IC451I wanted to do a little stamping this morning so I was checking out the inspiration challenge over on SCS.  The website is called LEIF and I found this inspiration here.

As soon as I saw this vase I though about the new What’s My Type? photopolymer set and figured it would just be so easy to do the triangular background with it.  I was RIGHT!  I really wasn’t any problem at all making the background to match the vase in the inspiration piece!

Here’s the details…

  • Pistachio Pudding – 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 folded
  • Whisper white – 4 x 4, stamp the triangle on the piece in Pistachio Pudding then trim down.  My square ended up 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Wrap a piece of the Pistachio Pudding Twine around it then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting on Whisper White using Garden Green, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.
  • Punch out 3 Crisp Cantaloupe flowers using the Itty Bitty Accessory Punch Pack add to card front.
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to finish off.
Set(s): Flower Patch, What’s Your Type
Paper: Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloup

Other: Pistachio Pudding Twine, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Traveler

CCMC313Aaaaah…it’s Thursday!  Boy…it’s been a busy week around here for me.  Lots of school work…and I actually don’t have any classes I’m teaching right not.  It’s the getting ready for Fall term that is killing me!  LOL!!!

But it is Thursday so that mean it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have a cool sketch for you!

When I was working on one of my projects for Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2014, I combined the Traveler set and the Flashback dsp and I just LOVE these two things paired up together.  As I was trying to figure out what to do for this sketch, I started to play around with this combo again and quickly remembered why I like the combination!

Here’s the details -

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Real Red – 4 7/8 x 3 5/8, layer onto Basic Black 5 x 3 3/4 and add to card basic using dimensionals.
  • Hello Honey – 3/4 x 4 7/8.  Take 2 x 3 1/2 strip of the camera print and add to the strip.  Next take 2 x 2 strip and add to bottom of the strip.  Take 2 x 2 piece of the Basic Black strip, cut top and bottom of the diagonal, add to strip to cover up the overlapping pieces.
  • Wrap Coastal Cabana twine around panel securing to the back.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp camera in Pool Party, greeting in Memento Black, cut with Circle Framelit, overset layer onto 2″ Hello Honey Circle and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add 3 sizes of Basic Metal Buttons (TOTALLY NAKED!!!!  EEEK!)  using glue dots.

Don’t forget to head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and see the great cards by the Design Team.

Set(s): Traveler, Hip Notes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Hello Honey, Real Red, Pool Party, Basic Black, Flashback dsp
Ink: Memento Black, Pool Party

Kinda Eclectic

TSSC324Can you believe it…it’s Monday again and time again for the Teachnostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  As soon as I saw the challenge I knew EXACTLY what set I would be using for this.  I decided to use the colors from the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2014 Saturday Challenge!  I thought they would work GREAT with the set.

The leaves are a little fussy to cut out but I do think that having the one cut out and tucked behind the strip works out and gives a little extra dimension.

Here’s the details -

  • Lost Lagoon – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, stamp the Hardwoood background in Lost Lagoon
  • Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the starburst in Sahara Sand and the leaves in Mossy Meadow.  Stamp the greeting in Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow.  Layer on Mossy Meadow 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.
  • Stamp leaves again in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White, cut out and add to card.
  • Strip is 3/4 x 3 1/2 Lost Lagoon and stamp dotted strip using Lost Lagoon and add to panel.
  • Add large Basic Metal Button using Whisper White Bakers Twine and add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

TSSC324See the sketch really is perfect for this set!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
