julie previewHere we go with more announcements on the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013!  What is it?  Well…you’ll have to go to the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what we have in store for you today!  But…I’ve given you just a little snippet to make you curious!

Preview Cards 008So here’s my card featuring item’s from the Spring mini and SAB brochure!  The base of the card is Whisper White 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I then took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting in Tangerine Tango.  I made the banners (from the Sycamore Street SAB dsp using the banner framelit in Hearts a Flutter and added these to the card front.  Next I wrapped around the 1/4″ Tangerine Tango and Pool Party SAB ribbon and added the panel to the card front using dimensionals.  The Island Indigo Scallop heart is from the Hearts a Flutter framelits.  The Pool Party heart is from the Hearts Framelits.   This is added using dimensionals.  I punch a 7/8″ Scalloped Circle punch from Whisper White, snipped between the bumps, added a Tangerine Tango button (SAB) using Whisper White Baker’s Twine. This is added to the heart using dimensionals.

challenges 001Happy SUO challenge day!  If you follow our challenge blog, you know that we had to postpone our challenge a week as our challenge ‘mom’ has been ill.  But WE’RE BACK and ready to play!

This is my 2nd post of the day…check out my other one here.

So our challenge this time is ….NEW STUFF!!!  In some ways that kind of theme is fun because I LOVE NEW STUFF…but, well, ummm…if you tend to get a lot of NEW STUFF at once, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to decide!

Here’s a little bit about my card.  The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Hexagon Embossing Folder, cut into three panels and added to the card front using dimensionals.  Next I did the leaves in Lucky Limeade, daisy in Daffodil Delight and smaller flower in Midnight Muse.  I cut these out with the matching framelits and added everything to the card front.  The blue flowers are up on dimensionals.  I stamped HELLO in Midnight Muse on Daffodil Delight, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  I used some of the new BIG Rhinestones to the center of the flowers to finish it off.
