TSSC307Oh…it’s time for another FUN sketch for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  This is just such a fun and easy card.

I will have to say…I was being a little lazy with this one.  You see, I had made THIS CARD using the same set and colors and I liked it soooo much (okay and ALL the stuff was sitting on top of my desk!) that I decided it would be absolutely PERFECT for the sketch challenge today!  I do have to say…I really like these colors with this set!

Here’s the details

  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Stamp the largest flower in Pool Party, the leafy image in Pistachio Pudding and the smaller flower in Basic Black.  Layer onto Basic Black 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut piece of Pool Party 1 x 3 5/8.  Stamp greeting using Basic Black.  Add Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffled Ribbon behind it then a 1/8 x 3 5/8 strip of Basic Black along the top.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Finish card off by adding some Basic Rhinestones.

TSSC307See…fun and EASY sketch for you today!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

DSC01571Can you believe it…Sale-a-bration is almost OVER!!!  WOW…that is so hard to believe!

I thought today I’d share a card we did as a make and take this past week.  There is a little story to this card.  I decided I wanted to use this set so I picked these colors, and sat down to design the card.  Finished it…HATED it!  So picked a different set and designed the card.  Not in love with it but I needed to be done fussy so decided to go with it.  I was working on getting all the make and takes cut out and looked at the original panel I made (on the card I HATED), had a totally different idea so sat down and designed a THIRD card…this one!  I have to say…this one made me happy!  So I cut out the pieces and we were good to go!  Folks did like this one and it was nice and easy!  (I like that too!)

Here’s the details….

  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Basic Black – 2 3/4 x 4 1/2, add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 1/4.  Stamp the largest flower in Pool Party, the leaf thing in Pistachio Pudding, and the small flower and greeting in Basic Black.
  • Wrap some Pool Party Twine (SAB) around the card.  Add dimensionals to the back and add to card front.
  • Add some dimensionals to each side of the twine where it crosses then add the Boutique Detail.

See…nice and easy!  And speaking of nice and easy…it’s easy to sign up for the Create for Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014!

CCMC289Hello everyone and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have a GREAT sketch for you!  We have having a quite a ‘winter’ here and I WANT IT TO BE OVER!!!!  So…so help it along some…I decided flowers were in order!

I absolutely LOVE the Sweet Sorbet SAB dsp…it is just so PRETTY!!!   When I was looking at the sketch and trying to figure out what to do I say this paper just sitting there saying…’pick me!!!  pick me!!!’…so I did!

Here’s the details…

  • Crisp Cantaloupe – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Sweet Sorbet dsp Flower Print – 4 x 4.  Add piece of Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon on an angle then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White 2 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Stamp leafy image from Petal Parade using Pistachio Pudding and small flower using Crisp Cantaloupe then the greeting from Peachy Keen using Basic Black.  Layer onto Pool Party 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Banner is Pistachio Pudding print 7/8 x 1 3/4.  Flag is Crisp Cantaloup print 3/4 x 1 5/8.  Add flag using dimensionals.
  • Punch out Basic Black Flower (smallest) from the Boho Blossom punch.  Take a piece of the Summer Starfruit Twine (Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack SAB), fray the edges, add behind the flower then add to the flag.  Add Pool Party Candy Dot to the center of the flower to finish it off.

I just LOVE the pretty soft colors on this.  And you will LOVE what the rest of the design team did with this sketch so check it out!

DSC01426It’s time to Sale-a-brate!  This past week on Create with Connie and Mary Spring Collection 2014 the fabulous Design Team has been using the SAB products for their projects.  Oh…the inspiring ideas!  (DANG and now I have to buy more stuff so I can make them all!)  But only our subscribers can see these fun projects…it’s not too late!

On Saturdays we have a challenge for everyone and this week it is a soft color challenge inspired by the YUMMY SAB dsp Sweet Sorbet.  You know me…I LOVE white so decided to keep my look very soft.

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, layer on Sahara Sand 3 3/4 c 5 and add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 2 x 3 3/4, punch top with Scallop Tag Topper and corner round bottoms.  Stamp the sort of ‘leafy’ image with Pistachio Pudding.
  • Stamp the larger flower with Crisp Cantaloupe and the smaller on with Sahara Sand, cut out and add to tag.  I used a dimensional under the Sahara Sand one.
  • Add tag to the card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 7/8 x 3 1/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black, cut into a banner, add Crisp Cantaloupe Stretch Ruffled Ribbon along the bottom and add to tag using dimensionals.
  • Make a bow with a double layer of the Crisp Cantaloupe Twine and add to top of tag using a glue dot.

Oh…I just love the soft, pretty look of this!
