Suite Sayings

AprilCardClass2Happy Thursday!  I’m sooooo happy it is Thursday.  Not only is it time for a GREAT new Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge but tomorrow is GRADUATION and that means I’ll be on my summer schedule AND more time for stamping!

Oh and speaking of MORE TIME FOR STAMPING…tomorrow is the arrival of NEW STUFF for that stamping!  WOO HOO!!!

This great card was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest (of course) and I put my own spin on it.  We did this for my card class in April.

Here’s the details…

  • Sahara Sand –  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Sahara Sand – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, run through the butterfly embossing folder, add strip of Elegant Eggplant – 5/8 x 4 1/4 along the right side and add panel to card front.
  • Whisper White – cut out using Lots of Labels, stamp greeting using Basic Grey Archival, add to card front
  • Mossy Meadow (oh will miss this) – cut out leaves then stamp with leaf image using Mossy Meadow
  • Elegant Eggplant, cut out flowers (the smaller ones are a double layer
  • Sahara Sand – cut out centers
  • Layer everything together and add to card front
  • Add Perfect Accent to the centers to finish off

Isn’t this a GREAT card!  Love the pretty colors!  Speaking of GREAT…make sure you head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out the information about out the Create with Connie and Mary May Mini session sign up now!  While you are there, also check out the GREAT inspiration from our talented design team!

Birthday Blooms

CCMC400Happy Thursday everyone!  Thursday are just good because it is time another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  They are also such fun and this week we have a cool color challenge!

Today was one of those days were I needed to come up with a ‘quick’ card for today’s challenge so I went with things that were partially done or sitting out on my desk.  Yep…so much of my designing comes from whatever is sitting out on my desk.  I was inspired by the piece of dsp from the Going Places dsp.  Even though this looks like it is a tall in skinny card, because the strip hangs over the end on each side, it really is a standard sized card.

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Lost Lagoon – 1/2 x 3 1/2, add to the bottom of the card
  • Sahara/Vanilla Stripe print – 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 add to card front
  • Hello Honey – 1/2 x 4 1/4, cut into banner on both ends, add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Sahara Sand
  • Flower – Lost Lagoon, Center – Hello Honey, Dot – Very Vanilla, Leaf Sahara Sand – stamp in Sahara Sand and sponge edges.  Layer everything together and add to card front

Yep…that really is all there is to it.  it is always great when you can pull something together at the last minute!

Head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out the create design team creations!
