CCMC296NOTE:  It has been brought to my attention that you can now get this set, WOOD MOUNT ONLY from the Clearance Rack in the ONLINE STORE.  The cost is $11.99.  If you are interested in this set, I would recommend you quickly purchase it because, as with all clearance items, once they are gone, they are gone.

Happy Thursday everyone and Happy Preview Week for Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014!

First I want to say something about this set (I used it for my preview card set here and now again today).  When I created my card set and this card, this set was available.  On TUESDAY when my card set was published, this set was still showing in the online store.  Sometime on Tuesday night, SU removed it.  We did not receive notification that the set was discontinuing.  Had I know this I would not have used this set for my preview set OR for this card.  My apologies to those of you who saw my cards, attempted to order the set only to find it gone and SU is NOT planning on making more!  Sad…it’s a REALLY adorable set!

Here’s the details for my card…

  • Summer Starfruit – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5 layer on Pacific Point 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
  • Smoky Slate dsp (neutral paper pack ) – 2 3/4 x 4, add to panel
  • Pacific Point dps (brights paper pack) – 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, add to panel.
  • Wrap Summer Starfruit twine (SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack) around panel and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Watercolor paper – stamp monster using StazOn Jet Black, color with Pacific Point and Summer Starfruit markers and blender pen.  Cut out with Circle Framelit, layer on 2 1/2 Basic Black Circle then add to Summer Starfruit Starburst piece using dimensionals.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black and Pacific Point Markers.  Punch out with 7/8″ Scallop Circle punch, layer on 1″ Summer Starfruit circle and add to card front using dimensionals.
