You’ve Been Boo’d

Before you know it Halloween will be here! WOW!  (Then it’s all down hill from there…LOL!!!)  This week the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team is getting into the Halloween spirits with cards that have the word BOO on there.  So…you’ve been boo’d!

This was one of those cards that started as one thing (a simple CAS card with a spider made from a pumpkin) and ended up with this…which I just LOVE!  You just never know where that creative process is going to take you!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pumpkin Pie – 2 3/4 x 5 1/4, run through the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Spooky Nights dsp – striped print – 1 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Spooky Nights dsp – dotted print 2 3/4 x 4, layer onto Very Vanilla – 2 7/8 x 4 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Tangerine Tango – cut out the letter B and two of the long pumpkin (Pattern Pumpkin Thinlets) and add to the card front
  • Decorate the pumpkin with eyes (Basic Black 1/4″ hole punch, Whisper White 1/8″ hole punch) and mouth (Basic Black 1/2 of a 1/4″ hole punch), Old Olive pumpkin stems, leaves and curly thingy, draw eyebrows with black pen
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 1 1/4, stamp greeting , cut into a banner and add to card front using dimensionals

Is that about as fun as it can be?  I thought so!

Beautiful You

So I had this idea for a quick and easy card using one of my favorite sets – Beautiful You!  I wanted to do a ‘watercoloring’ kind of card and since I’m not all that good at watercoloring I used the technique where you wet the paper (LOVE using the Shimmery White for this) then stamping an image (I used one from Happy Celebrations) and let it fun for that watercolor look!  Although this is a quick and easy look…you do have to make sure your ‘watercoloring’ is nice and dry before you do do the stamping on top of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Shimmery White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shimmery White – 3 3/4 x 5, wet the paper and stamp the one image from Happy Celebrations in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party (and finish with Flirty Flamingo again).  Set aside and let dry (I waited over night).
  • Stamp image and greeting using Memento Black, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Take the backing  off 5 small Perfect White Accents and add using Tombow Glue

I’m on a roll with QUICK AND EASY!

The Create with Connie and Mary April Mini Edition is now open!  Our mini sessions include the instructions for 14 projects with full step-by-step tutorials:

  • Each mini session includes TWELVE unique cards featuring three stamp sets, and

Tin of Cards

I was in the mood to do a splatter type card.  I love the new splatters in the Happy Celebrations set but I also LOVE the Gorgeous Grunge set.  The two really work so nicely together.

I started putting these two splatters together and thought this ended up being such a fun card!  I’ve really been into the Peek-a-boo Peach color (note to self…order more cardstock) and paired it up with Real Red and Basic Black for a fun look!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 3 3/4 x 11 folded
  • Real Red Diagonal Stripe – 3 /4 x 3 3/4, add to bottom of card front
  • Basic Black – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2  x 4 1/4, stamp larger splatter using Peek-a-boo Peach, smaller splatter using Real Red and greeting using Memento Black, add to card front
  • Add some Silver Metallic Enamel Stars to finish off

How quick and easy!

Happy Celebrations

When I first saw the Celebrations Duo embossing folders in the Occasions mini I liked them but didn’t jump on them (and the matching set) right away.  Once I got them though, I really have had fun with them.

We used them in my craft group last month and this was one of the cards we made with it!

Here’s the details…

  • Night of Navy – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip – 1 7/8 x 3 1/2, layer the three pieces together on angles then run through the ‘HAPPY’ embossing folder, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 3/4, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut into banner on both ends and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – punch out large balloon, add using dimensionals
  • Draw ‘string’ using Chocolate Chip marker.

How quick and easy!
