MagnificentMapleI decided I needed to do some stamping today.  With having been gone to Pittsburgh for the long weekend (over Veteran’s day) and then coming back EXHAUSTED and needed to do a BUNCH of work at school, today was my day to play.

I do LOVE to do challenges and when I saw that The Paper Player challenge was CAS leaves…well what can I say…that challenge was right up my alley!

Here’s the details:

  • Whisper White:  4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Extra piece of Whisper White:  4 1/4 x 5 1/2, run through Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, add to card front
  • Whisper White:  2 1/2 x 3, layer on Perfect Plum 2 5/8 x 3 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp Magnificent Maple in Island Indigo and Perfect Plum on Whisper White, cut out and add to panel using dimensionals.
  • Ink Truly Grateful using Island Indigo (truly) and Basic Grey (Grateful) markers on Whisper White. Cut into a banner.
  • Add Smoky Slate large button to banner using White Baker’s Twine.
  • Add banner to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add a couple of rhinestones for that ‘little extra’

CCMC272I think I have mentioned how much a LOVE this stamp and it was just perfect to create a card with a “fall” feel for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge – this week…it’s a color challenge!

This is really a pretty easy card.  The base of the card is So Saffron.  I took a piece of Natural White and stamped the scatter stamp in So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry, and Bermuda Bay.  I layered this on Bermuda Bay then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the Maple leaf using versamark on So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, and Rich Razzleberry, gold embossed, cut out and added to the card front.  I did a banner our of Rich Razzleberry, added a Bermuda Bay strip, stamped the greeting in Early Espresso on Natural White, added a So Saffron button using Linen then, then added this piece the to card front.

WinterBadgeWe are gearing up for our Winter Collection featuring the holidays of December!  It’s beginning to look a little like Christmas!  Connie and I are starting the Early Bird signups for our Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013.  It’s all about Christmas and Winter projects!  It’s not too early to start planning those gifts and decorating and we have lots of GREAT ideas to help you!  See more information over on Create with Connie and Mary!

CC445Yep…I SERIOUSLY LOVE these two set…Magnificent Maple (a la carte) and Gorgeous Grunge.  What can I say!  And together…just PERFECT!  I thought it would work so nicely for the color challenge on  SCS today!  And it is also perfect for the CASology challenge today for ‘autumn’.

The base of the card is Smoky Slate.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the horizontal stripe in Smoky Slate and then the ‘splotch’ in Smoky Slate too.  I layered this onto a piece of Gumball Green and added a thin strip of the Gumball Green. This panel is added to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the leaf in Gumball Green on Whisper White, cut out and added using dimensionals.  Next was stamping the greeting using Gumball Green on Whisper White, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.  Finally it needed just a little more so I added some Basic Rhinestones for that little extra ‘bling’!

CAS239Here’s a very quick card I made for the CAS challenge today.  The challenge was a sketch and I immediately thought of this stamp!

The based of the card is Soft Sky 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 folded.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped the maple leaf in Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip, added some Sahara Sand Gorgeous Grunge and layered on Sahara Sand.  I took two of the prints from Sweater Weather dsp, cut in to banner, added behind the panel and added the panel to the card front.  I stamped the greeting in Chocolate chip to finish it of.  Yep..that was all there was to this…the basics…Stamps, Ink, Paper!

Okay…so now it’s time for my card…I decided to do a pretty simple card!  The base of the card is Whisper White with the bottom right corner rounded.  Then I took another piece of Whisper White, rounded the bottom right corner too and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the Magnificent Maple leaf on Whisper White using Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay, cut out and added to the card front.  I added a thin strip of the Rich Razzleberry.  Next I pulled out my Another Thank You (Photopolymer set), inked with Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry, stamped on Whisper White, cut into a banner and added using dimensionals.  Finally I took a Bermuda Bay button, tied Pumpkin Pie 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon on it then added using Glue Dots to finish it off.
