Celebrate Today

Casology144This is my second post for today so please visit my Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge card here.   It’s also a ‘bright and happy’ card!

I wanted to get one more card posted for this month (been super busy with school!) and say the CAS-ology challenge for FLIGHT.  Well nothing says ‘flight’ to me like some bright and happy balloons!  You might be thinking this looks a little familiar.  I did do a similar card here using this set and the same colors…final look is different!  This card is SOOOO quick and easy!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 x 5
  • Stamp the balloon using Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Pacific Point.  Use markers to draw the ‘strings).
  • Stamp CELEBRATE using Memento Black.
  • Add panel to card base using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

So if you are looking for a quick and easy card for a last minute birthday, it’ a GREAT one to CASE!

Set(s): Celebrate Today
Paper: Whisper White,
Ink: Memento Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Indescribable Gift

SUO121WOOO HOOO!!!  It’s time for another SUO challenge and the theme this time is Mother’s Day card.  Although I no longer need a mother’s day card, I decided to make this in a way that I change the greeting and use it for another occasions later.

I was trolling around Pinterest and saw the flowers done in white with just a touch of pink in there and I thought that was just SOOO pretty!  Yes..I cut out the entire image.  Yes…I am NUTS!!!  But it looks SOOO pretty this way!

Here’s the details…

  • Blushing Bride – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Blushing Bride dotted (Subtles DSP Paper Pack) – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, layer on Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Tie White Silk Ribbon around card and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp flower image using StazOn Jet Black.  Color using Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Blushing bride.  Cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting on Blushing Bride – 1/2 x 2, cut into a banner, sponge around edges using Blushing Bride, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add dazzling details to centers of the 3 large flowers to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see they did with this challenge!

Lovely Amazing You

HopWelcome

WOW…it’s hard to believe but we have come to the end of Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Celebrations!  The design team put together AMAZING card sets for our subscribers!  And since it is Saturday the team is going to once again share a favor using the same set they used for their card set.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from the Create with Connie and Mary site.  Now is a GREAT time to subscribe and get ideas for card classes to take you through the end of this catalog!

I have to say, I did struggle a bit coming up with a favor for this week.  But, since the ONLY stamp from this set that I did not use on my card set was the chocolate saying, I decided to go with that.

How cute this is and so easy to make!  I decided to give you a quick little tutorial in case you wanted to make one too!

DSC03477Pool Party – cut one strip 2 x 11 and score at 5″ and 6″

Cut another strip 5 x 1 7/8.  Score along the 5″ side at 1 1/2 and 4 and along the 1 7/8 side 1/2″ along each side.

DSC03478Use the Ornate Tag Topper punch on BOTH ends of the 11″ piece.

Trim the 1 7/8 x 5 piece as shown in the picture.

DSC03479NOTE:  before putting together, if you want to stamp on it, do that first.

Put the 1 7/8 x 5 piece together as shown in the picture.

DSC03480DSC03481Add to inside of 2 x 11 piece as shown in picture.

When done you have a handy little favor.

 

 

 

DSC03482That PERFECTLY fits 3 Ghirardelli Chocolates.

To decorate mine I cute a piece of Whisper White 1/2 x 3, stamped the greeting using Real Red and Chocolate Chip markers.  Use the Note Tag Punch to punch the left side.  Fold piece of the Beach House Washi and add to back of tag, then tie Whisper White Baker’s Twine in Chocolate Medium Button and add to tag.  Add Beach House Washi on right side and then add Pool Party 1/8 x 1 1/2 cardstock.  Add tag to box using dimensionals.  Tie closed with Real Red 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon.

TSSC361What a fun sketch Mary Jo has for us this time for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  It is such a simple one and you can do so many thing with it.

As we are getting to end of the current catalog, I’m trying to revisit some sets and designer papers that I just didn’t use as much as I would have liked.  I LOVE the Gold Soiree dsp so you put it together with the Crazy About You set and this is what I came up with for today’s challenge.

Here’s the details –

  • Crisp Cantaloupe – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pistachio Pudding – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layer onto Garden Green 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • Gold Soiree dotted print – 1 3/8 x 3 7/8, cut into banner on both ends and add to panel.  Stamp greeting in Memento Black and add panel to card front.
  • Stamp flower 3 times in Calypo Coral, cut out and layer using dimesnionals and add to banner.
  • Add Something Borrowed Embellishment to center of flower to finish off

TSSC361This is such another GREAT sketch…I hope you can join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
