Frosty Friends

Okay…so I was needing to make a card for my November Creative Crew assignment on SCS to use the colors in the Festive dsp pack and I wanted a unique layout for the card.  Then I was looking at Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and thought I like the overall look but was going to take a couple ‘liberties’ with her sketch.  You know…that’s the nice thing about sketch challenges, they can be a place to start!

This is such an easy card.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  I took strips of dsp from the Festive dsp paper pack and cut the in ends into different banners and added to the card front.  Next I took a piece of watercolor paper, stamped the Frosty Friends in versamark and embossed with the Early Espresso Embossing Powder and colored in with my Island Indigo (no … really …it’s in there… it’s the birds), Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade and Crumb Cake markers, layered a Cherry Cobbler Large Scallop Edge under it, a Cherry Cobbler strip on the top and then wrapped a piece of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon around it.  This is added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler markers on Very Vanilla, punched with the Large Oval Punch, layered onto an Early Espresso Scallop Oval Punch piece then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the little tree from the Merry Minis using Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso, punched with the Merry Mini Tree Punch and added using a dimensional.  Now if you would like to see all the ‘Creative Crew’ creations for November, check them out here.

Frosty Friends is such a great little stamp!  Do you want some GREAT ideas for holiday and winter cards that you can’t see anywhere else?  Then check out Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions.  Click on the badge on the right to learn more!

Merry Mini Favor

I hope you have enjoyed my week of the Merry Mini set.  Well since the week is not over, I still have ONE MORE for you.

This is a fun little favor that I made to go with my card set.  We did this as a mnt at my workshop in October.  I got the idea from p 10 of the Holiday Mini.  It really is such a simple favor.  The base is the Fancy Favor box.  I score down 1 1/4” from the top and cut out all but the flap.  I added a piece of Whisper White under the flap so the decoration shows.  I did the 1 1/4” Scallop Circle in Champagne Glimmer and a 1” Whisper White Circle.  I stamped merry Christmas using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade and punched out using Word Window punch.  I stamped the tree using Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso, punched with the mini Christmas tree punch and added using dimensionals.  I used half of a Velcro tab for the closure.

Merry Minis – Last One!

So…I did want to show each of the individual cards in my Merry Minis card set for the Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Edition.  Check out Create with Connie and Mary to learn more!

I will have to say, of the three I made with this set, this one was my favorite!  First I LOVE Pool Party as a Christmas color and then I just LOVE the CAS (clean and simple) look of this!  The base of the card is Pool Party, I took another layer of Pool party, stamped the greeting and embossed with silver embossing powder, layered on Whisper White then used the Festive paper piercing template to pierce an ornament on there.  I added the ornament ‘string’ just be doing straight lines.  I added this panel to the card front using   I stamped the flourishy little ornament using Pool Party on Whisper White three times, punched with the ornament Merry Mini punch and then 3 Silver Glimmer ornaments too.  I made itty bitty bows from the Pool Party/Whisper White Baker’s twine and glued them on the ornament.  Okay…you wanted to know WHERE I used the SILVER GLIMMER PEN????  Well I used that to draw the ‘strings’ from the ornaments to the Merry Christmas Greeting.  Look closely!

Merry Minis

On Monday I posted a card from my Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions set which used the Merry Minis set.  You all LOVE it so I thought I’d share another of the three here today.

Here is one of the other cards I made for my Merry Minis card set.  This is pretty basic just using the fun tree image from the Merry Mini set and I just LOVE the cute tree dsp from the Snow Festival set.  Once I finished this card and was looking at my finished card I thought to myself how CUTE this would have also been if I had used the ornament stamp image (and matching punch of course) and that cute ornament paper in the Snow Festival paper pack.  Now wouldn’t that be CUTE?  Well if you would like to do that and would like to know all the supplies and measurements for this card ( so you can recreate it), check out my post on Create with Connie and Mary.  There I have a downloadable file with all the information for this card including the measurements!  Yep…it’s all there.

Oh…while you are there…check out Connie and my new adventure…Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!  Three fun filled weeks filled with cards, cards and even more cards!
