Celebrate Today

CCMC369Can you believe it?  It’s THURSDAY already.  And of course that means it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

This sketch might be a little challenging to you!  I had used another card I made. Now the problem is…when I do that, I have THAT card in my head and it can be difficult for me do a different card!  What can I say!  I do like the way this turned out though even though it is so different from the other one I made!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Boho dsp – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to bottom of Very Vanilla piece
  • Stamp HAPPY using Bermuda Bay and Birthday using Blackberry Bliss.
  • Cut three different prints from the Boho dsp – 7/8 x 1 3/4, cut into banners, layer, add behind the Very Vanilla panel then add to card front.
  • Stamp balloon string on card using Delightful Dijon.
  • Stamp Balloon on Very Vanilla using Blackberry Bliss, cut out, stamp the flag using Island Indigo, cut out, stamp banner using Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay, cut them out, layer everything and add using dimensionals.

Isn’t that fun?  Speaking of fun…

CCMC364Happy June everyone!  Oh cool…it’s time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge and I just LOVE the sketch!

For me this is such a tough time to create because although I have SOME new stuff…I don’t have MUCH new stuff – LOL!!!  What can I say.  So for the sketch this week I decided to use the new Cherry on Top dsp and pair it up with the fun balloon from Celebrate Today which is in the new catalog.

Here’s the details –

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Cherry on Top dsp – 3 pieces 3 3/4 x 3/4, 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 and 3 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp solid balloon using Bermuda Bay and Watermelon Wonder on Whisper White, cut out, add Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the back.
  • Stamp HAPPY balloon using Crushed Curry on Whisper White, stamp birthday in Memento Black, cut out, add Whisper White Baker’s Twine to back.  Layer the balloon using dimensional, tie the baker’s twine together in a knot and add to card front.
  • Add White Candy dots to finish it off.

Bohemian Borders

New3This is a reject.  No seriously…it is.  Now there really isn’t anything wrong with this card but it ended up in my reject pile.  What is my reject pile?  It’s cards or projects I made for a particular reason then I decided I didn’t like it for that reason.

I did this card for an upcoming challenge but after it was done, although I liked it…I thought I could do better for the challenge so into the reject pile it went.  I decided though I would share it because the Bohemian Borders is just such a fun set to use.

Here’s the details –

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • In a random pattern, stamp outside of diamond element using So Saffron, middle diamond element in Hello Honey, and inside diamond element using Lost Lagoon
  • Stamp HAPPY in Hello Honey and birthday in Lost Lagoon.
  • Layer panel on Lost Lagoon – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and add layer to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Island Indigo Candy Dots to finish it off.
Set(s): Bohemian Borders, Celebrate Today
Paper: Whisper White, So Saffron, Lost Lagoon

Other: Brights Candy Dots, Dimensionals

Here’s the details –

What’s Your Type

CAS319I have been having so much fun playing with the What’s Your Type set…there is just so many different things you can do with this set.

I saw that the CAS challenge is to do a masculine card and so since I had this set sitting out on my desk I thought I’d just go with this for the card today.  I’ve also been using my Candy Dots a lot recently so thought that would be a fun add on for this card.

Here’s the details –

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp solid triangle using Night of Navy and Baked Brown Sugar, stamp striped diagonal triangle using Marina Mist.
  • Stamp HAPPY in Baked Brown Sugar, and birthday in Night of Navy (both from Celebrate Today set)
  • Night of Navy – 5/8 x 5 1/2 two strips and add one to each side of the Very Vanilla panel and add to card front
  • Add Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy Candy Dots to finish off
