Sea Street

CCMC305Oh…it’s Thursday again so time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have such a fun challenge this week.

When I saw Connie’s card she had used the Sea Street set which was the same set that I used.  But you can see that although we used the same set and the same sketch…our cards really look NOTHING alike!  How fun!

Here’s the details –

  • Real Red – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Coastal Cabana – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through Night of Nay 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut out two prints from the Maritime dsp using the Starburst framelits and add to card front.
  • ‘Fussy cut’ a strip of the banners and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp octopus using Night of Navy ink and cut out.
  • Stamp hello using Real Red, cut out and add to cut off toothpick.  Add to octopus using a glue dot.
  • Add octopus to card front using a double stack of dimensionals to finish it off.

Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and check out what the design team did with this week’s challenge!
