Gently Falling

CCMCFALL13-02Oh what a wonderful week we had on Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection 2013!  This is one of our favorite weeks because it is our Card “Create”tions week where EACH designer picked a Halloween or Fall set and made 4 different cards with it.  Can you guess what I picked?  Yep…Gently Falling!

The base of the card is Soft Sky.  I took a piece of Chocolate Chip then added a piece of the Soft Sky Plaid on the bottom and added to the card front.  I cut out a Deco Label from Very Vanilla, stamped thanks! (Lots of Thanks, added a Crushed Curry print and a Chocolate Chip Herringbone print behind it then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the maple leaf outline on a Sahara Sand print, Crushed Curry print and Soft Sky print from the Sweater Weather dsp pack, embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder, cut our and added to the card front.  I added a couple of Sahara Sand Candy Dots to the card to finish it off.

CCMC267Happy September everyone!  We have another month of fun challenges for you at Create with Connie and Mary AND we are kicking it off with a fun sketch challenge combined with making a pocket card!

As soon as I thought of doing a pocket card I thought right away of using the envelope liners.  It worked out PERFECTLY!!!

For this card I used the middle envelope liner (in the set of three).  By playing with the paper size I was able to get my final pocket card to measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 so perfect for a regular sized envelope!

CCMC267openThe pocket card was made using dsp from Sweater Weather.  I added a Chocolate Chip herringbone print banner with strip of the Soft Sky Polks Dot on on it.  I stamped the greeting using Versamark on Very Vanilla, embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder, punched with 1″ Square Punch, layered on 1 1/4″ Square Punch, then 1 1/2 Scallop Square Tangerine Tango Punch.  I used the Crushed Curry marker to highlight ‘so much’.  I added this using dimensionals.  The inside card is Very Vanilla and I used the same envelope liner to shape the top.  I sponged using Chocolate Chip.  I added a strip of the Chocolate Chip Herringbone print along the bottom and a strip of Tangerine Tango cardstock.  The leaves at the top – maple: tangerine tango solid, oak: Soft Sky solid, outline: versamark and Early Espresso Embossing Powder.  Crushed Curry button, Linen Thread.  Maple on the bottom – same print as the pocket, outline versamark and Early Espresso Embossed.

GentlyFallingOh I LOVE FALL!!!  And the Preview Week for Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection 2013 is in FULL SWING!!!  Today we have TWO…yes…that is TWO opportunities for you to get BLOG CANDY!!!  How you might ask?  Well…visit Create with Connie and Mary to find out!

Now a little about my card…before you leave.  Honestly…this actually started out as a ‘normal’ fall colored card…you know browns, oranges, yellows etc.  Not sure what happened…but as you can see…I didn’t quite end up there!  LOL!!!  That happens to me..A LOT!  But I do LOVE these colors and they do still make me think of Fall…this set is a GREAT Fall set…so as you are working on cards for the next couple of months…don’t forget to pull this one out and use it!  The other thing is that I wanted to use some of my ‘neglected’ colors and I managed to use three of them here!

The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant.  I took a piece of Whisper White, rounded the opposite corners then stamped the large solid maple leaf with Sahara San, the solid oak leaf with Marina Mist and the then the open maple leaf with Elegant Eggplant.  I cut ran it through the script embossing folder (you can’t see it in the picture but it looks really cool in real life), cut into panels and added to the card front.  I cut a Whisper White Deco Framelit and added using dimensionals.  I did the Autumn Accents Oak leaf in Marina Mist, ran through Argyle Embossing Folder and sponged with Marina Mist.  The small leaf is Elegant Eggplant, ran through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and sponged with Elegant Eggplant.  Then the oak is stamped solid in Sahara Sand and outline in Elegant Eggplant.  These are added to the decor framelit.  Next I stamped the greeting in Elegant Eggplant on Sahara Sand, cut into a banner, added a button using white baker’s twine than added the banner to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added a couple of rhinestones to the leaves.

Gently Falling

CCMC250So I was looking at the color challenge for Create with Connie and Mary and was wondering what could I do that would be a little different.  When I think of this set I mostly think of autumn but thought it would look nice in these colors and have to say…LOVE IT!

The base of the is Whisper White and I rounded the bottom corners.  I stamped the larger leaf in Pool Party, the smaller leaf in Calypso Coral, then the outline leaf in Basic Grey.  I added a piece of the Pool Party dotted dsp along the top.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting in Basic Grey and Calypso Coral.  I added a strip of Basic Grey along the top, a Base Grey Large Scallop edge along the bottom, tied a piece of Calypso coral Ruffled Ribbon around it than added the panel to the card front.

And there you have it…a nice simple card!  You should see what the Create with Connie and Mary Design team did with these colors and you can just click HERE!
