Picture Perfect Birthday

A happy Thursday to one and all!  Oh thank goodness we are almost to the end of the week!  No really…it might have been a short one but dang…I’m EXHAUSTED!

This week we have a fun color inspiration for you and I have to say…this one was a bit of a ‘head scratcher’ for me!  I decided to go with birthday (since that set was sitting on top of my desk for my project for the Connie and Mary Collection this time) and it worked!  Our colors this time were Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Marina Mist (a color I pretty much NEVER use!)

Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Basic Black 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Using your Stitched Circles, cut out and open larger and closed smaller (HINT: do them at the same time) from Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Marina Mist.  Add to card front
  • Gold Foil – 1/8 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out Stitched Circle, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp candles in Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Marina Mist, fringy thing in Memento Black and Flame in Crushed Curry, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Calypso Coral – stamp greeting in Memento Black, punch out with the Classic Label punch, add to card front
  • Add some Gold Enamel Metallic Stars to finish off

If you are looking for some great ideas for the Sure Do Love You bundle in the occasions mini, you can still order the tutorial that is the First of the Connie and Mary Collections!  Once you order, you automatically receive the tutorial.  This collection has 3 cards – one is a fun fold, and a cool little Valentine treat holder!  All the information about the collection and to order is found here.

Picture Perfect Birthday

It’s time again for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Inspiration.  This week it’s time for a color inspiration and WOW…is this one every fun and BRIGHT!

When I think of fun and bright, I think of birthday!

I just started playing with the Picture Perfect Birthday set and I though tit would be fun to use the colors to make fun bows.  This really is an easy card to make.  I did use the darker version of each color to make the bow highlights but the main colors are the inspiration ones.

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 4 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp bows as follows Berry Burst/Rich Razzleberry accents, Peek-a-boo Peach/Pumpkin Pie accents, Bermuda Bay/Island Indigo accents, greeting – Memento Black, confetti – Versamark and silver emboss
  • Berry Burst – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, layer behind Whisper White panel
  • Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon, fold a piece, cut ends on an angle, staple to top of panel, add panel to card front using dimensionals
