Happy Birthday, Everyone

CCMC364Happy Thursday everyone!  As you are reading this I’m in Pittsburgh (PA) visiting with my sister.  I decided to go on the visit sort of ‘last minute’ so I was trying to get some of my challenges done so I could get them ready to post.  So I sat down to do my card for this challenge (Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge) and I made a really cool card!  I went  upload it into the Create blog only to discover it wasn’t the right challenge!  OOPS!!!  So then I had to do another card.  I was sort of short of time before I left so I decided to go CAS.  Well…I did one card using the right colors but wasn’t my favorite so I did this one which I like (don’t worry…I’ll show my reject tomorrow!).

Here’s the details…

  • Watermelon Wonder – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Black – 3/4 x 5 1/2 and add to the bottom of the card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp larger grunge stamp using Crushed Curry and the smaller one using Watermelon Wonder.  Stamp greeting using Momento Black.
  • Add panel to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Color some of the Perfect White Accents using a black Sharpie, let dry and add to card front to finish off!

Yep…it really is that easy!  And speaking of easy…are looking for some GREAT card and 3D ideas using sets in the new catalog?  Then check out the NEW Create with Connie and Mary Mini-Session!

  1. I love your clean and simple card! I find that sometimes my best cards are made when I have very little time, and it looks like that worked for you too 🙂
    Placing the spatters behind the sentiment is perfect.

  2. The simplicity of this card is awesome! The splatters really pack a punch of color!

  3. Brilliant clean & simple card!! I just love it!! 🙂

  4. The spatters are a great way to show off the challenge colors with that big greeting. Love the simplicity of it!

  5. The splatters look great behind the bold black sentiment – sometimes the quickest cards are the best ones! Hope you enjoyed your trip Mary.
