CCMC365Boy…time sure does FLY by and I can’t believe it is already Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge.  This week we have a fun, and simple, sketch for you.

You know the funny thing about this sketch is that pretty much everyone on the design team followed it pretty closely using either the oval or the circle.  Meanwhile I (who actually designed this sketch) didn’t!  Funny how that works out sometimes!

Here’s the details –

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Bermuda Bay – 3 3/4 x 5, run through the Boho Chic Embossing folder and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/8 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Boho dsp – 1 3/4 x 3 1/2, cut in to a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Gold Glimmer – cut out 3rd to smallest star and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting on Very Vanilla using Blackberry Bliss, cut out and add using dimensionals.

Yep…a VERY quick and easy card…my favorite kind!

SUO125Oh…this is another card that I made recently that I just LOVE!  It’s time for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is “Cutting Edge” – use a decorative edge on your card.

Well since no longer have the edgelits, I had to get a little creative in coming up with a unique edge.  I decided it would fun to use the Deco Labels (just cutting along the bottom) to create my edge.  After I cut it into some Soft Sky…it sort of reminded me of clouds so my card pretty much created itself!  The clouds are made from the new Tree Builder punch.  I cut them out of Whisper White.  Then the ones that I popped up I ran through the Decorative Dots embossing folder.

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Soft Sky – 4 x 5 1/4, slide the bottom edge into the Deco Label Framelit and just cut the bottom.
  • Whisper White – punch out 9 ‘clouds’ using the Tree Builder Punch. Add 5 directly to the Soft Sky.  Run 4 through the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, add to card front using dimensionals.  Trim overhang off then add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Lost Lagoon on Whisper White, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to finish it off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!
