Stylish Christmas

Happy Thursday everyone!  Connie and I and our design team are going to be taking a break next week so everyone can celebrate Christmas!  But we will be back right after the holiday! It’s time again for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have an awesome sketch inspiration…

Did a little minor tweak with the sketch and this is what I came up with…

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5, layer piece of Silver Glitter 1/2 x 4 3/4 behind the panel and add to card front
  • Silver Glitter – 3/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp two poinsettias in Pool Party and two set of leaves in Pear Pizzazz, cut everything out, layer and add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting in Versamark, silver emboss, cut out, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Silver Metallic Pearls to finish off

And now for something NEW (and totally cool!)…

Preorder has begun for the Occasions Catalog and demos are able to purchase the stamp set, Bloom by Bloom! (Customers can order beginning January 3!) These newest tutorials feature the FANTASTIC Happiness Blooms Suite of products! We fell in love with the bright, bold colors and retro flower look and are excited for you to see what we did with them! We have three cards (one a special fold) and a wonderful organizing project, all designed by Connie and Mary! See details HERE!

IM49 – Dashing Deer

 

Welcome to the first Inspiration Monday of December! What an awesome photo inspiration we have for you this week…check it out…

I love the rich jewel tones in this picture.  This one was really a challenge for me as I wanted to do a Christmas card and normally with colors like this, I would have done an ornament but don’t have any ornament set.

Here’s what I came up with…

I sort of went with some of the colors, and sort of an animal and then the circles that are part of the peacock feathers.  What can I say…I was inspired!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sea Foam – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Soft Sea Foam – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Blackberry Bliss, add to card front
  • Soft Sea Foam – 2 1/8 x 3 3/4, run through the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Frosted Floral dsp – Blackberry Bliss print – 2″ circle and 1 1/4″ circle
  • Frosted Floral dsp -Old Olive print – 1 3/4″ circle and 1 1/4″ cirlce
  • Silver Glitter – THREE 3/4″ circles, add all the circles to the card front
  • Shimmery Paper – cut out reindeer, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots to finish it off

Christmas Favor

Happy December 1st everyone!  It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop. This week we are featuring Christmas Favors or small Christmas Gifts…I guess mine is a little of both. Although it is difficult to tell from this picture, this is a hot chocolate packet holder…it is a very quick and EASY favor or gift!

Here’s some general details…

  • Poppy Parade – 3 3/4 x 11, fold in half, round the corners and stamp the snowflakes in Poppy Parade
  • Santa’s Workshop red/green bow print – 2 1/2 x 8 1/2, put packet of hot chocolate in the piece of folded Poppy Parade, then wrap the dp around it.
  • Garden Green Stitched Satin Ribbon – okay…we used to sell this so you might have some in your stash – I had mine leftover from the Sincerely Santa Project Kit, wrap around the holder, tie in a half knot, add full size candy cane, then another half knot and bow to finish off
  • Garden Green – 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Versamark, white emboss, cut in to a banner, add to wrapper front under bow.

I just LOVE simple projects!

And guess what…these still time for our final Holiday Mini collection…
