Eastern Beauty

Happy Thursday everyone!  Yep…it’s that time again…time for more inspiration from the very talented ladies over at Create with Connie and Mary.  This week it is a FUN sketch!

This is kind of a fun day for me today.  My office over at school has been packed away (and taken away…it’s empty now) and the soonest we move to our new ‘digs’ is Monday.  Meanwhile, today they took down our course management system that we do all of our course prep and work in so essentially I have a 2 day vacation!  COOL!!!  Just a little happy dance over here!

Here’s my card for the challenge – I changed it from a square to a horizontal one!  Here’s the details…

  • Dapper Denim – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 5, run the right 2/3 of the piece through the Garden Trellis embossing folder, add to card front
  • Eastern Palace dsp – cut piece 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, layer piece of Lemon Lime Twist – 1/2 x 5 1/4 behind it than add to card front
  • Cut out one of the larger Eastern Medallions from Dapper Denim and small one from Lemon Lime Twist – stamp matching imagine using Dapper Demin, layer using dimensionals and add using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – stamp dotted circle and greeting using Dapper Denim punch out using 1 1/4″ Circle punch, add using dimensionals

Eastern Beauty

Can you believe it…it’s another Tuesday and time for another SUO Challenge.  Our theme this time is patriotic colors so I went with good old red, white and blue!

I hadn’t realized when I went to make my card that Stampin’ Up! retired all the stars!  GEEZ…who’s in charge???  What WERE they thinking???  I did finally find this small one in the new Wood Crate thinlet set.  But REALLY…why retire BOTH Framelits AND punches.

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp medium circle in Real Red and small circle in Dapper Denim, layer onto Dapper Denim 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front at an angle.
  • Silver Glimmer – 3/8 x 4 1/4 add to card front
  • Whisper White – 7/8 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Dapper Denim, cut into banner and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut star in Real Red, Dapper Denim, Silver Glimmer, layer and add to card front using dimensionals.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Favorite New Incolor

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  Did you know that TOMORROW the Create with Connie and Mary June Mini Edition will open?  No…REALLY…it is TRUE!  So make sure you scroll down to the end of my post and click on the link to head over to Create with Connie and Mary and subscribe today!  We have GREAT projects for you!

So this week our theme is Favorite New Incolor.  Okay…this was a bit tough.  For me, it seems like every OTHER year I really get into the new incolors.  Guess what?  This year is NOT that year!  LOL!!! (But…I do LOVE last years!)  Part of it might be that I haven’t played with them much yet so maybe they will grow on me.  But for today’s challenge I decided to go with Berry Burst…it’s a fun color.  I kept things pretty simple…

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp the little star thingy three times using Berry Burst, layer onto Berry Burst 3 3/4, 5, ad to card front using dimensionals
  • Berry Burst – cut out the one large Eastern Medallions, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out one of the medium circle medallions – add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Berry Burst, punch out using 1″ Circle Punch
  • Berry Burst – cut out a small scallop circle from the layering circle framelits, add the punch out greeting, add using dimensionals
  • Add some Silver Metallic Enamels dots to finish it off.

See how simple that was?  The nice thing about this design…you could truly make in an ANY color!

And remember the Create with Connie and Mary June Mini Edition will open TOMORROW – WOO HOO!
