Among the Branches

ClardClassRedWhiteSilverThis is a card we did at my October Christmas Card Class.  I had originally made this for the Red/White Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop but then decided that the added silver didn’t match the challenge so I did a different card.  (You can check it out here.)    I really liked this card though and it is a GREAT Christmas card…especially if you need to do A LOT!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 3 1/2, run through the Woodland Embossing Folder, then stamp snowflake using Cherry Cobbler, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cherry Cobbler diagonal striped dsp – 1 1/4 x 4, cut into a banner and add to card front.
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 4 1/2, cut end at a diagonal, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – cut out using the Window Framelit (oops…retired!), add using dimensionals
  • Stamp image on Whisper White, using Cherry Cobbler, punch out with 2″ Circle Punch, add to card front.

Do you know what time it is?  It’s time for the November Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session!  AND this month we have something special so read to the end!

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop.  The last two weeks the team has done Halloween cards and this week we each have a little Halloween Treat for you!  Fun, Fun, Fun!

HalloweenTreat2I have not used the Square Pillow Box Thinlit yet so when I knew this week was going to be a small Halloween Treat, I knew right away I would use that!  I also had not used my Among the Branches set much yet so I put those two things together for my treat for you!

Here’s the details…

  • Blackberry Bliss – cut out two of the Square Pillow Box thinlit, run through the Woodland embossing folder.
  • Next stamp the eyes using versamark and gold emboss.  Put box together
  • Wrap a piece of the absolutely YUMMY Very Vanilla 1 1/4 Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, to using Gold 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, trim ends.
  • Stamp Spooky circle image on Very Vanilla using Tangelo Twist, color in eyes using Basic Black Marker, cut out using Circle Framelit.
  • Gold Foil – punch out 2″ circle, layer under the spooky circle leaving more gold showing at the gop.
  • Black Glimmer – punch out 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle, layer spooky in this than add to pillow box using dimensionals.

No THAT is easy!  And you know what else is easy?  Signing up for the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Session!

Among the Branches

HelloAutumnOh…I couldn’t wait to share this card with you all.  It is just SO ME!!!

As I was working on the new banner for the Create with Connie and Mary site (you know…we are getting ready to open the September Mini Session on Sept 13th…WOOO HOOO!!!), I picked the colors of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon to give our banner a ‘fall’ feeling.  LOVE IT!  Well anyway, as I sat down to stamp, I had these colors on my brain and wanted to play with the new Among the Branches set.  This idea popped into my head.  Oh my…it is just so CAS and SO ME!

Here’s the details (don’t blink…it’s definitely quick and easy!)…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the branch (tree trunk) in Sahara Sand then the leaves in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon.  Stamp greeting (Cheer All Year) in Rich Razzleberry.
  • Add layer to card base using dimensionals
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.

Viola…a CAS card for fall (oh…it is just SOOOO ME!!!)  And since  I made this to make the new Create with Connie and Mary Banner for our NEW session…here’s the details…
