Paisleys and Posies

It’s time again for another inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week we have a cool color combo for you!

This one was a little tough for me because I am pretty much in the Fall mode and these colors:  Powder Pink, Pool Party and Night of Navy just didn’t say fall for me.  I decided to go with the Paisleys and Posies.  I really like this thinlet…there is just so much you can use it for.  I kept it night and simple…you know me!

Here’s the details…

  • Powder Pink – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whole Lot of Lovely dsp – 1 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, layer onto Night of Navy 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 3, add to card front
  • Powder Pink – cut out 2 of the leaf image
  • Pool Party – cut out 1 of the leaf image, layer the three pieces together and add to card front
  • Night of Navy – cut out the small flower thinlet, add to card front
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off

Make sure you head over to Create with Connie and Mary and see what our AMAZING design team did this week!

Paisleys & Posies

paisleyleavesI LOVE leaves…no…really I do!  It is right up there with trees.  I LOVE trees.  Okay the fact the trees have leaves, well, that probably have something to do with it!

I was looking for a challenge to join in and saw the challenge on The Paper Players was leaf and what can I say…I just HAD to join in the fun!

Well…then to figure out what leaf to use….hmmm…my new favorite set (Paisleys & Posies) had TWO leaves in it…JACKPOT!!! So I got to work and this is what I came up with!

Here’s the details

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Mint Macaron print – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to bottom of card front, wrap piece of Delight Dijon 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the card front (ends are under the panel on the front).
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2, stamp dotted paisley using Versamark and gold emboss, layer on Rich Razzleberry – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 3/8 x 1 3/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black, cut into a banner and add to card front
  • Stamp large leaf 3 times using Momento Black, color using Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron markers, cut out (sorry…no framelit for this one, have to cut out!), layer and add over end of banner
  • Add some Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to finish off

Paisleys & Posies

img_3389I don’t know WHY I did’t want to get this set.  I LOVE it!  When I first saw it my thought was…WAAAY too fussy and those of you who know me know I don’t do fussy .

But then after seeing so many cool things using this set, well I did HAVE to have it.  If you haven’t check out my other cards you can see a super simple one here and a fancier one here.

This is another simple card and think it is a great card for fall.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, wrap piece of Mint Macaron Mini Striped Ribbon, stamp greeting using Momento Black, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Cajun Craze – cut out using two of the paisley framelits layered together; stamp using the dotted paisley, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Mint Macaron and Basic Black – cut out ‘fancy’ leaves and add to paisley
  • Delightful Dijon – stamp medium ‘flower’, cut out with matching framelit and add to paisley to finish off

See…wasn’t that simple?  And speaking of simple…it’s that time again.  The October Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session will be opening soon and it’s not too late to subscribe.  It features all things from the NEW Holiday Mini – COOL!
