Bloom for You

CFSWapSorry I haven’t been posting as much lately…with school starting (and all of the associated craziness that always seems to be part of it) I’ve just been crazy busy!

I realized that I hadn’t posted my last Control Freak Swap and since it sort of matches my card from this past Thursday for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, I thought I’d share it today.  I also wanted to mention that TOMORROW starts the Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Preview Week and I’m kicking it off with a REALLY cool card set!  So make sure you come back tomorrow to see it!

Here’s the details –

  • Cantaloupe Crisp – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5 – use Label Bracket punch to punch the four corners.  Add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add strips of the Sweet Sadie Washi Tape
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4, run through the Fun Frames Embossing Folder, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp Bloom for You Flower two times using Cantaloupe Crisp, punch out with Fun Flower punch.  Stamp center using Basic Black, punch out with 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Use Fun Flower Punch with Pistachio Pudding add to back of flower and add using dimensionals

HolidayCardBadgeOh…I’m just SOOO excited! and I’m REALLY excited because PREVIEW WEEK starts TOMORROW!  We are getting ready for another Create with Connie and Mary Collection!  This time we are doing an ALL CARD collection…how cool is that???

Bloom for You

CCMC317Oh…I’m sooo happy!  It’s Thursday!  Not only does that mean it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge but only one more day and my first week of school will be OVER!!!  Oh my…it has REALLY been A WEEK!!!

Anyway…we have a GREAT sketch for you for our Thursday Challenge and I knew pretty much EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded.
  • Whisper White – 5 x 3 3/4.
  • Sweet Sadie Washi Tape.  I wanted the strips to be all the same width so I added the washi tape to Whisper White then cut each to 3/8″.  I added the strips to the panel
  • Greeting is stamped with Memento Black and panel is added to the card front using dimensionals
  • I did the Fun Frame Embossing Folder with Pistachio Pudding, cut it out and added to the card
  • I stamped the flower twice using Crisp Cantaloup, punch them out, curl the edges and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp center using black, punch with 7/8″ scallop circle punch, add using dimensionals.

Tour de Freaks – July

freakwelcome2013Hello everyone and welcome to the July Tour de Freaks!  Many of Freaks are off at convention (which is just finishing up) but thanks to the wonder of the blogging world whether you are exhausted from a great convention or having a great time at home stamping with friends you are in for a treat.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from the very talented Debbie Henderson and her Debbie’s Designs blog.  I just LOVE her stuff!

And now for my stuff!  I just LOVE the new Bloom for You single stamp and matching punch and decided to feature that in my projects this month.  First up…

Card1If you follow my blog at all you know that I just LOVE CAS (clean and simple) cards.  I like lots of ‘white space’ on my cards and often my ‘white space’ is just that….WHITE!

For this card the base is 4 1/4 x 11 folded.  The next layer is 5 x 3 3/4  I stamped the chevron from the Work of Art stamp in Night of Navy, my friend from And Many More in Garden Green.  The panel is added using dimensionals. The flower is stamped in Crushed Curry – two times – punch out and layered,  the center done with Night of Navy and the ‘leaves’ is the same flower punch in Wild Wasabi.   I colored some Basic Pearls with my Night of Navy (darkest) blendabilities and add to the card to finish off.

Card2So for my next project I used the same make up for the flower.  The card base is Night of Navy 4 1/4 x 11 folded.  I took the Night of Navy polka dotted dsp from the Regals paper pack.   One strip 5 x 1 1/2, middle is 5 x 3/4 and smallest is 5 x 1/2.  These panels are added using dimensionals.  Whisper White is 1″ x 4 1/8 with a 1/8″ Crushed Curry strip on it, cut into a banner, stamp the greeting using Garden Green and add to card front.  Like I said the flower is done the same way as above and added using dimensionals.  Finally I colored some pearls using the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities (middle one) and add to the card front.

ThankYouGift1And now for my 3D item.  We wanted to do a little thank you gift for our helpers at Create with Connie and Mary LIVE last Saturday.  I found these cool memo pad holders at Michael’s and thought they would just be perfect altered and they are just SOOOOO cheery!  The memo pad holder was Night of Navy with the fun white dots on it.  I wrapped a piece of Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon then a piece of the Silver 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon aroun dit.  I make a flower (same as above) EXCEPT for the center I used the ‘dotted’ center from the Beautiful Bunch set on Night of Navy and White Embossed so that it looked like the background.  The pen has a piece of the Crushed Curry Dotted dsp inside.

Now it’s time to head over to Justin’s jk cards blog!  He is sharing his convention swaps with you.
