CreateFA15HopWelcome

Can you believe it…it’s the middle of September already!  Wow…this month is going FAST!  Well, we are continuing our ‘fall’ theme and this week the theme is Fall is in the Air!  Well…to me that means ANYTHING FALL!  LOL!!!  And I’m sticking to it!

Actually I made this card for LAST week’s hop and then I made my other one and decided to use this one for this week instead.

Here’s the details..

  • Rich Razzleberry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Navy/Copper print – 1 x 5 1/2 add to right side of card base
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting using Versamark and copper emboss
  • Copper Foil – 1/8  5 1/2, add to right side of vanilla panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Leaves Thinlit – cut out in Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry and Copper Foil, add to card front
  • Add Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy enamel dots to finish off

I have to say…I absolutely LOVE the navy copper specialty print from the dsp…LOVE…I wish there were more sheets of that in the pack!  There are just so many wonderful new goodies in the Holiday mini!

CCMC424Another Thursday and another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This week is a color challenge:  Delightful Dijon, Emerald Envy, Soft Suede.

Okay…this was an amazing morphing card…started as a sunflower card, turned into a scarecrow card and then ended up here.  I liked the open look of this!

Here’s the details…

  • Delightful Dijon – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, run through the Pretty Paisleys Embossing Folder, use Emerald Envy, Delightful Dijon, and Soft Suede markers
  • Stamp greeting using Soft Suede
  • Soft Suede – 4 x 5 1/4, layer behind Very Vanilla panel and add to card front.
  • Stamp flower 3 times – two with Delightful Dijon and once with Soft Suede, cut out and layer, stamp leaves twice using Emerald Envy, cut out layer behind flower then add flower to card front.

Sure feel like fall to me!  And with the fabulous holiday mini, it’s time for the Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Edition.

Flourishing Phrases

Flourish1Do you LOVE the new Flourishing Phrases set and Flourishing Thinlits?  I do.  I mean I LOVE these!  Often I will just like the set or just like the thinlits but on this one…LOVE them BOTH!  This was also what I used this month (June) for my Create with Connie and Mary June Mini Session Card Set.  LOVE!

Since I was working on my card set for Create, I had some ‘extra pieces’ sitting on top of my desk and you know me…I just HAD to use up those pieces on a card.  (HINT:  for my Create card set I paired up this set with the Playful Palette dsp!)

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Rich Razzleberry – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8
  • Mint Macaron – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, stamp greeting using Rich Razzleberry, layer onto Rich Razzleberry piece and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Very Vanilla – cut out large flourish and add to card front
  • Stamp flower in Sweet Sugarplum and cut out, stamp flower using Rich Razzleberry, cut out small flower, add using dimensional and add flower using dimensionals
  • Add some Sweet Sugarplum enamel hearts to center of flower to finish off

And to get more idea with this set (and FOUR other FANTASTIC ideas)…

Playful Backgrounds

InColorsI LOVE to ‘collect’ sketch ideas and when I’m sort of stuck, I like to use the sketches to get me ‘jump started’.  My favorite kind of sketches though are CAS ones (I know…SHOCKER!)

One of the sites that I just LOVE their sketches (even though I don’t always have time to play along) is CASE this Sketch.  The also have CAS designs but they tend to be very different.  Anyway, awhile back I saved this sketch and it turned out being PERFECT to showcase the new incolors and this fun new set…Playful Backgrounds.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, run through Confetti Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, ink stamp using Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, Emerald Envy and Dapper Demin markers and stamp, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer –  1/8 x 1 5/8, add to card front
  • Add one of each color of the incolor enamel stars to finish off

Now how fun is that?  And speaking of fun…
