Happy Scenes

CCMC386With Christmas next week, we at Create with Connie and Mary are taking next week off so that we and our design team can celebrate with holiday with their family and friends!  So MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE from all of us!

For this special two week challenge, we have a very special and festive color challenge for you – Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold!

I had seen a card on Pinterest (of course!) that gave me the idea for this card.  I think it is a perfect card for the colors AND for our two week challenge!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival
  • Black/White snowflake print (Wonderland dsp) – 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, layer onto Gold Glimmer – 2 5/8 x 2 5/8.   NOTE:  I cut out the center of the Gold Glimmer to make it easier to attach the dsp otherwise trouble sticking!  Add to card front using dimensionals
  • Gold Glimmer – punch out 1 1/2″ Circle, add to card front
  • Whisper White THICK – 2 1/2 x 1 1/2, cut out using the Sleigh Ride house strip and add to card front using dimensionals to finish off.

Don’t you just LOVE it?  I do!   Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

Welcome to the beginning of the Christmas inspiration of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  For quite a few weeks coming up, each Saturday the design team is going to have a different Christmas theme inspiration!  Our sixth challenge (and last Christmas CARD one – more Christmas to come though) – this one is…ANYTHING GOES!  Oh…that is both easy AND hard!


Well…well…well…if you thought this was another card class/blog hop card…guess what?  FOOLED YOU!  LOL!!!  This is one I did make for this challenge.

  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 3 1/4, stamp trees using Basic Black Archival, sponge Soft Sky on top portion, use white gel pen to put ‘snow’ on the trees, add dazzling details (make sure you let this dry!)
  • Stamp image again on post it note so you can cut out the bottom portion.  Use this to cut out Dazzling Details glimmer ‘snow’.  Add to bottom of image.
