It’s a Blog Hop!

HopWelcomeWelcome everyone to the first every Create with Connie and Mary blog hop! If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Connie Babbert’s Inkspired Treasures.  I just LOVE her cards!

CCMC296The Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Preview Week is coming to a close (tomorrow is our last day) and since this is one of the sets I will be using for the collection, I decided to use it for the HOP!  This is just such a fun little set to play with!  Hmmm….did you notice I used the same colors as the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge this week – Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point and Smoky Slate?  Those were such fun colors and I thought they would be perfect for some stars!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, run through Arrows Embossing Folder and add to card front.
  • Stamp the banner using Pacific Point, cut out and add to the card front overhanging some.
  • Stamp stars in Summer Starfruit and Pacific point.  Cut out and add to card fornt.  I did one more of the big star in Pacific Point and embossed in Smoky Slate.  I cut out the middle star and added using dimensionals.
  • Punch out two Smoky Slate stars and add to card front.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
