Oh So Eclectic

Can you believe it…it’s another Thursday so time for some more inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary.

We once again have a ‘CASE the Catalog’ inspiration and this time we are using a card from page 18.  LOVE the CAS look of the sample and decided to go with the layout (and most of the design team did too!).  I just got my NEW STUFF yesterday.  Unfortunately there was a problem with the set I planned to use (waiting for a replacement) so went this with new set instead!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded, stamp the small images in Peek-a-boo Peach
  • Naturally Eclectic – pick two prints – one 4 1/2 x 1 1/4 and the other 4 1/2 x 3/4, layer and add to card front
  • Emerald Envy – 4 3/4 x 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp solid leaf in Lemon Time Twist and outline leaf image in Old Olive, do two, cut out and add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Night of Navy, punch out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch
  • Pumpkin Pie – punch out 1 3/8″ circle, layer greeting onto it and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

The Create with Connie and Mary June Mini Edition will be available in just a couple days!  WOO HOO!
