Lovely Inside & Out

Of all the things in the catalog that I got, my very favorite is the daisy punch.  I also LOVE how the words layer for the set Lovely Inside and Out.  I put those together with the new Leaf Punch and this is what I came up with…nice and easy!

I love the look of white, yellow, grey and black together and decided to keep things nice and simple for my card.  I think it is really a striking card and hope it would brighten someone’s day!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whole Lot of Lovely dsp (Crushed Curry print) – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out Scallop Circle from the Layering Circles framelits, stamp FRIEND using Crushed Curry and FOR A GREAT in Memento Black.  Add to card front.
  • Crushed Curry – punch out 2 daisies, layer
  • Basic Black – punch out 3/4″ circle add to center using dimensionals
  • Smoky Slate – punch out 3 sets of leaves, add behind cards and add daisy to card front.

Happy Thursday everyone!  DANG…It’s AUGUST already!  Where did my summer go?

But the good thing about August and my Holiday Mini order will be here TODAY and I can wait!  And the good thing about Thursday is it’s time for more inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary!  This week we have a fun color combo for you – Fresh Fig, Powder Pink, and Night of Navy.

This was one of those things that sort of ‘grew’ from things on top of my desk!  You see…for the August Create with Connie and Mary Mini session I used the Ribbon of Courage set for my card set  LOVE!!!!  I had some pieces sitting there on my desk and some things were sitting on top of other things and well it gave me this fun idea!

Lovely Inside and Out

So…are you enjoying the new catalog?  This is always such a fun time of year as everyone gets NEW stuff and those creative juices start to really flow.

One thing that is always fun about the new catalog is seeing the new incolors.  I love that now we have the new incolors for 2 years at a time instead of just 1.  Sometimes it takes me awhile to ‘warm up’ to colors and when we only had them a year, by the time I was finally liking them, they were gone.  For me it seems like every other year I REALLY like the incolors.  Should I mention that I LOVE last year’s incolors?  This is going to be one of those years that it takes me a while to warm up to them.  This is for the Fab Friday 114.

One thing I like to do when I get the new incolors is to make a card for my stamping group using all the colors on one card.  Sometimes this is easy (aka LAST YEAR) and sometimes this is REALLY DIFFICULT (aka THIS YEAR!).  But I did manage to do it and and here’s the card I came up with.  Overall not too bad.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp ‘flower’ in Powder Pink, FRIEND in Lemon Lime Twist and FOR A GREAT in Fresh Fig, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp ‘flower’ in Berry Burst and two ‘leaves’ in Tranquil Tide, cut out flower using Layering Circle framelit and cut out leaves by hand, layer and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

Also remember TODAY IS THE DAY!  The Create with Connie and Mary June Mini Edition has just OPENED – WOO HOO!
