Hello

sunshineOh…I was so excited when I heard that this fun SAB set is still available!  YIPPEE!!!!  I LOVE this set and started working with it WAAAY too late!

So…we have such a FUN sketch challenge for this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Check out my card here.  Then I saw the Way to Use it Challenge on SCS is Sensational Celestial Delights – use sun, moon, stars on your card AND for the Paper Players Rain or Shine challenge.  WELLLLL…what can I say, but the GREAT sketch with this fun set and even better the sunburst thinlet and this is what I came up with!

Here’s the details…

  • Kraft – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Shine On Specialty dsp – cloud print – 3 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Basic Black – 1 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer Washi Tape – add strip to card front
  • Whisper White – 2 x 6, lay on an angle and trim sides, stamp hello with Versamark and Silver Emboss, stamp little sunshine in Basic Black, add strip to card front
  • Daffodil Delight – 4 x 3, cut out an oval then cut out using the Sunburst thinlet, stamp the dotted line (Sunburst Sayings) using Versamark and Silver Emboss, add to card front using dimensionals

How fun is that!  And you know what is REALLY fun?  The Create with Connie and Mary March Mini Session starts TOMORROW and here’s a hint…I used the Sunburst Sayings and matching thinlet for my set!  Here’s the information…

CCMC397It’s Thursday and you know what that means…it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week…oh…what a FUN sketch challenge we have for you!

Okay…so as always there’s a story to go with this.  This is actually my second card for the challenge.  I had spent a weekend working on cards for challenges and made a card for this sketch.  It wasn’t that there was anything wrong with it, I just wasn’t super happy with it (don’t worry…will share it another time) so decided to make another card for the challenge.  Now THIS is a HAPPY card!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • It’s My Party dsp – black print – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to bottom of card
  • It’s My Party dsp – Melon/star print – 3 x 4 1/4, add to top of card
  • Whisper White – 2 x 5, lay on card front and trim to fit, now stamp happy birthday using Melon Mambo and Basic Black markers, stamp to you multiple time using Melon Mambo, add some ‘strings’ from Balloon Builders (or just draw on) using Basic Black.
  • Add strip of Silver glimmer washi tape (SAB), add panel to card front.
  • Punch large balloon from Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Silver Glimmer, use white gel pen to add details to Basic Black and Melon Mambo balloons, layer and add using dimensionals, stamp another string, cut out, add behind black balloon.
