Create with Connie & Mary Server Issues

We are aware that Create with Connie and Mary is currently unavailable.  Typepad has had server issues over the past several days and all their blogs have been up and down.  Typepad is working on the problem and is hoping to have it up as quickly as possible.  Remember, our Card Create-tions 2014 website will be available until NEXT March, so you’ll be able to access all the card set projects until then!

Thanks for your patience!


Blessed Easter

TSSC311Oh…it’s Monday again and time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge and Mary Jo has ANOTHER great challenge for you!

If you remember last week I mentioned that we got to play with the new Blendabilities Markers and that I used the vases I had colored at the Mason Unite and Excite event.  At the event my friend Jackie Susnik won a set of those markers and she picked the Pumpkin Pie set!  Well…on Saturday she and my friend Jo came over to play and I colored a bunch of images.  Don’t be surprised if there is a lot of PUMPKIN on my sit!

Here’s the details for my card…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pumpkin Pie – 3 3/4 x 5 – 2 different prints cut on the diagonal and add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 4.  Stamp tulips using Memento Black Pad.  Flowers are colored with the three Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities and the stems with regular Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive markers (oh…PLEASE let me get these Blendabilities SOON!!!).  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Pear Pizzazz – 3 1/4 x 1.  Stamp hello using Basic Grey, cut into banner.  Add Pumpkin Pie button using Whisper White Bakers Twine.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • The three Rhinestones are colored using each of the three colors in the Pumpkin Pie set and added to the card front to finish it off!

TSSC311What a perfectly delightful sketch!  I just LOVE It!!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
