DSC01569OH say it ain’t so…it’s the last day of Preview Week for Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Collection! On Tuesday I shared my preview card set using Monstermaniacs and today Connie is sharing a wonderful card set using Backyard Basics.  Okay…I don’t have that set (GASP) so I created this card that sort of LOOKS like it could be in a backyard!  LOL….yep…I’m really doing a stretch on this one!  Don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out her set, download her FREE tutorial, subscriber to Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014, then head to HER site to sign up for BLOG CANDY!

I really love the way this looks!  I had used this for a demo card for a workshop last week.

Here’s the details…

  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Smoky Slate – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp Hardwood background stamp using Basic Grey.  Add to Basic Black 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and add to card front using dimensionals.

CCMC258See…I told you that you would be seeing more of this fun Flower Shop set!  It’s Thursday so time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge and this week it is bright and happy color combo!

This is one of the quick and easy cards!  The base of the card is Daffodil delight.  I took a piece of Whisper White, layered onto Night of Navy and added to the card base.  Next I punched a 2 1/2″ half circle from the new Daffodil Delight dsp (Brights dsp paper pack) and added to the card.  I took a strip of Melon Mambo, stamped my friend from the Six Sided Sampler set, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  Next I stamped the loopy flower using the new style Daffodil Delight pad and quickly covered in Clear Embossing Powder and embossed it.  I love with the new style pads if you move quickly you can emboss with them!  I punched with the Pansy Punch then punch another flower from Night of Navy.  I used two of the petals behind the flower as ‘leaves’.  Next I took a NEW Melon Mambo button and added it to the center of the flower using White Baker’s Twine.  I added the flower to the card front using dimensionals.

IC394Oh..I so do LOVE this set and matching punch!  It is soooo easy to work with.  As I as looking through the thomaspaul site, I came across this cool pillow and knew I could use my fun set!

The base of the card is Smoky Slate.  I took a piece of Natural White, layered onto Real Red then to the card base using dimensionals.  I cut out three of the Little Leaves sizzlets in Basic Black with the one going off the edge (this is for the CAS-ual Friday challenge of Over the Edge).  I stamped the flower in Smoky Slate and Real Red and punched out.  I punched the smallest flower from the Boho Blossom punch in Real Red and Basic Black, added a Jumbo Rhinestone to the center and added to the center of the flower.  I added these to the card front…the red one is added using a dimensional.  I stamped the greeting using Real Red on Smoky Slate, cut out and added using dimensionals to finish it off.

CCMC256BI have this strange feeling that you are going to be seeing A LOT of this set!  This is the new Flower Shop set and matching Pansy Punch (and you can even purchase as a bundle and save!  Well…it’s just a GREAT set!  And speaking of GREAT…so is the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary this week!  Oh and also GREAT…Preview week starts Sunday and Early Bird Special (4 FABULOUS weeks for $19.95 is going on RIGHT NOW!)

The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I took a print from the Soho Subway pack and added to the base.  I stamped my flowers in Summer Starfruit and Island Indigo and punched out.  I laid them on the Very Vanilla piece and pierced some stems where I wanted them.  I took another print from the Soho Subway pack and did a loop for the one side and a banner for the other, attached to the back of the Very Vanilla piece then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I took two of the smallest vintage brads, pressed into the Versamark pad, covered with Early Espresso embossing powder and embossed to make the centers of the flowers.  I added these to the flowers then added them…the Summer Startfruit one is on dimensionals.  The fun banner is stamped in Versmark, embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder, cut out and added to the card to finish it off.

Flower ShopOh my…NEW STUFF!!!  So much fun with NEW STUFF!!!  I think I’m going to have a problem keeping Crisp Cantaloupe in the house…LOVE this color!!!  Anyway…the color combo is from the new color coach, the flowers are from the new set Flower Shop with matching punch and the hi is from Regarding Dahlias…so really ALL NEW STUFF on this card!

The base of the card is Cantaloup Crisp.  I took a piece of Whisper White, stamped hi in Baked Brown Sugar, layered onto Baked Brown Sugar and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flowers in Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, and Pistachio Pudding (for the leaves), punched with the Pansy Flower Punch, and added to the card front.  I stamped the centers in Baked Brown Sugar, cut out and added to the center of each flower.

So I did this card for the clean and simple challenge #244 and the Friday Free 4 All challenge on SCS.
