Chalk Talk

CCMC261Oh…the fun we had at Convention!  We hope that you all enjoyed the two week challenge!  Such pretty cards in the gallery!  Well…now it is time for another sketch challenge and it’s a pretty easy one.

The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I used a really print from the Venetian Romance print, layered on Very Vanilla and added to the card front.  I took a piece of Pistachio Pudding, pierced the frame in there, added the Finishing Touches Edgelits in Island Indigo and added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Grey and Island Indigo on Very Vanilla, punched with the Wide Oval punch and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I used the Bitty Punches to make the little flowers in Island Indigo with Pistachio Pudding leaves.  I added these using dimensionals.  Finally I added Basic Pearls to the center of the flowers to the Pistachio Pudding panel to finish it off.

You want to make sure you check out the AWESOME cards from our Design Team…they are THE BEST…so head over to Create with Connie and Mary now.

CreateWk4closedOh…say it ain’t so!  We have come to the end of Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013!  But remember…all the projects feature items in the NEW CATALOG so they are good ALL YEAR LONG…it’s not too late to join!

This week the design team is leaving you with one last piece of inspiration…a color challenge – Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Daffodil Delight.  I made mine into a Gift Card Holder.

CreateWk4OpenThe base of the card is a piece of Bermuda Bay 4 1/4 x 9 scored at 1 1/2, 5 3/4.  Fold up the bottom 1 1/2″ piece and adhere on the sides to form the pocket.  I added a strip of Whisper White that I had used the Adorning Accents Edgelits on.  Then I ran a piece of Daffodil Delight through the Chevron Emboss Folder and add that on top.  I wrapped a strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock around it, wrapped a piece of Chevron Ribbon then tied on a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.  I stamped the image from Chalk Talk using Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White, cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits, added Bermuda Bay Candy Dots then added the label to the band to finish it off.
