Acorny Thank You

ccmc431Oh…HAPPY NOVEMBER everyone!  WOW…I can’t believe it…the year is quickly coming to and end.  AMAZING!

This week we have a really cool sketch for you and I have to say…I took some liberties with it but  REALLY like the way it turned out.  I’ve seen this ribbon treatment on several cards and this is the first time I’ve tried it.  LOVE the look!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 run through the Pretty Paisleys folder, layer onto Soft Suede – 5 1/4 x 4 and add to card front.
  • Stamp acorns using Delightful Dijon and Soft Suede, punch out, layer acorn tops on acorn bottoms then layer together.
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon – fold like picture and use staple to secure.  Make two and layer behind the acrons.  Add acorns to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Soft Suede
  • It’s a little difficult to see in the picture, but remove back from some Perfect White Accents and add to card front using Tombow Glue.

The design team has such GREAT ideas so head over to Create with Connie and Mary and check out all their great cards!

CCMC379Oh…HAPPY THURSDAY everyone!  It’s a wonderful autumn day here and we have a GREAT color challenge for you on Create with Connie and Mary and it just says FALL to me!  The colors are Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.  Yep…it just says autumn to me.

As I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I saw the retrosketch challenge and I have to say…it really was PERFECT for the card I wanted to do.  The funny thing is that many of the pieces (not all but many) were ‘sitting on top of my desk’ as leftovers from other projects so was easy to finish up!

Here’s the details…

  • Hello Honey – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 11, run through the Woodland embossing folder, add strip of Mossy Meadow – 5/8 x 5 1/2.
  • Add gold foil doily to panel, trim off side and add panel using dimensionals.
  • Very Vanilla – 2″ circle, add to gold foil doily
  • Stamp long Vintage Leave using Early Espresso on Mossy Meadow, cut out and add to card front.
  • Stamp acorn bases solid and strip using Hello Honey; solid top using Mossy Meadow and grid using Soft Suede, punch everything out, layer and add ot card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Tie Gold Cording Trim into Very Vintage Button, add using glue dots.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

CCMC376Oh it’s time for a new Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge and this week…it’s a FUN color challenge:  Perfect Plum, Lost Lagoon, Tip Top Taupe.  How fun is that.

It’s been a while since I did any paper piercing or made a card where it looks like it is skinny but really is a ‘normal’ size card.  So I put those two ideas together…along with my very favorite acorny set and this is what I cam up with.  I just think it’s a fun and happy hall card!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Use the Updated Essentials Ppaper Piercing Pack to make a ‘frame’ and stamp the greeting in Lost Lagoon and Perfect Plum.
  • Tip Top Taupe – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, cut into banner on both ends and add using dimensionals
  • Lost Lagoon – 3 3/4 x 1/2 add to banner
  • Tip Top Taupe striped envelop dsp – 3/8 x 4 1/4, add to banner
  • Perfect Plum dsp (Subtles dsp paper pack) – 3/5 x 3 3/8 add to banner
  • Stamp acorn – solid acorn – Lost Lagoon, striped acorn – Perfect Plum, both acorn tops – Tip Top Taupe.  Punch out and layer.  Add solid/dotted acorn directly onto banner and striped/solid one using dimensionals.

SUO132Okay…this is one of those ‘reject’ cards that I sometimes makes!  What’s a ‘reject’ card…it’s a card I made for a challenge then decided I didn’t like it for the challenge so it going into my ‘reject’ pile.

Now…I’m not saying it’s a bad card…I actually really like it…it’s just I decided it didn’t work as good for the challenge as I wanted it to.  This was for the ‘punch it up’ SUO challenge but since it only used one punch and TON of Big Shot stuff…decided to do something different.  But since I REALLY liked this card…I thought I’d share it with you!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Black Glimmer – 3/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Woodland Embossing Folder, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Tags and Labels Framelits – pick 3 sizes and do Very Vanilla, Hello Honey, Basic Black and layer, cut piece of Hello Honey Striped 5/8″ Ribbon, fold in half and staple to top of tags, add using dimensionals
  • Stamp solid acorn using Hello Honey, punch out, punch out top from Black Glimmer, layer and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp thankful banner in Basic Black, cut out and add using dimensionals!

So…how’s that for a ‘reject’!  LOL!!!  But you know what ISN’T a reject?  It’s the Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session and oh…do we have COOL things FOR YOU!

SUO132Yep…it’s Acorny Thank You AGAIN!!!  I’m just LOVIN’ this set and in these colors.  COOL!!!  Anyway…since it is Tuesday it is time for another SUO challenge – Punch It Up…using punches on your card.

Well…since I’m LOVIN’ this punch I knew I was going to use it then I also used the Banner Triple Punch and the Bow Builder Punch.

I actually had done another card for this challenge then realized the only punch I used was the acorn one so I decided to ‘punch it up’ a little more and did a second card!

Here’s the details…

  • Delightful Dijon – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Delightful Dijon – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, ink the Woodland Embossing Folder using Delightful Dijon, run the cardstock through the folder.
  • Timeless Elegance (bold black/vanilla stripe) – 5/8 x 5 1/2, add to back of panel and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Very Vanilla – 2 x 3 3/4, punch using Banner Triangle punch, stamp greeting using Versamark and black emboss.
  • Black Glimmer – 1 1/2 x 4, punch using Banner Triangle Punch, add behind banner and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp solid acorn using Delightful Dijon, punch out, punch out acorn top from Black Glimmer, layer, add adhesive to the back and then add loops of Gold Cording Trim.  Add using dimensionals.  Add Vanilla Enamel Dot.
  • Boho dsp – Punch out Bow Builder using Bow Builder Punch.  NOTE:  I punched out double and layered so inside of the bow was same as outside.  Add using glue dots.

SatHopFall

Nothing says Fall to me like rich greens, golds and brown and that was the look I went for with this.  My friends Jo and Jackie were over to stamp this past week and had a BLAST making acorn cards (okay…we also managed to BREAK my acorn punch!  No worries…SU already has my new one on its way!).  I love the rich look for this card!

Here’s the details…

  • Mossy Meadow – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Boho dsp – Delightful Dijon print – 1 x 3 1/2, add to panel
  • Stamp greeting using Early Espresso
  • Early Espresso – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add Very Vanilla panel and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Mossy Meadow – cut out oak leaf framelit and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Very Vanilla – stamp striped acorn So Saffron, solid top Soft Suede, solid acorn Delight Dijon, dotted top Early Espresso, punch out layer, add adhesive to the back then loop Gold Cording Trim (LOVE this stuff!)  Add acorns to card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

CCMC373It’s Thursday and you know that THAT means…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week…a REALLY fun sketch challenge for you!

I was looking over the designs from our AMAZING design team and it is incredible how we all start with the same sketch yet our finished cards are all so different!  How cool is that.

I’m lovin’ these little acorns and decided to use those for my card (okay…I had some ‘extras’ on my desk from a project I did for the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Session!  I didn’t want to use the Fall dsp in the Mini but found this print from English Garden pack!

Here’s the details…

  • Kraft – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • English Garden ‘pebble print’ – 2 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Night of Navy – 3 x 5, layer the Lots of Label and oval together and run through the Big Shot at the same time.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White – stamp solid acorn Pear Pizzazz, diamond top Soft Suede, striped acorn Mossy Meadow, solid top Early Espresso.  Punch everything out and layer together.  Loop Gold Cording Trim then add acorns to card front.
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Early Espresso, cut out and add to card front.
