SUO SpringSpring is in the Air!  And Spring is in the Air over at the SUO Challenge as the Design Team shares some spring with everyone!

Yep…you got it…another quick and easy card from me!  What can I say…I’m ADDICTED to CAS!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, stamped the greeting in Basic Black, Basic Grey and Summer Starfruit.  Next I took a strip of Sahara Sand, cut into a banner, added the Needlepoint Border then added to the card front.  Finally I stamped the umbrella in Summer Starfruit and cut out, the handle in Basic Black, cut that out, added together then added to the card front using dimensionals.

So…go over to the SUO challenge and get inspired by the Design Team!

Set(s): Rain or Shine
Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Basic Grey
Other: Needlepoint Border, Dimensionals

Create Spring Sat Challenges 012I can’t believe it!  We have come to the end of another edition of Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013!  AMAZING!!!  That is all I can say…AMAZING!!!  What incredible projects but only our subscribers can see them!  (Yes…you can still join and have access to all the project at once!)

For our final challenge we have one just for the design team and it is a sketch challenge.  I LOVE the umbrellas in Rain or Shine set so that is what I used.  The base of the card is Daffodil Delight and I used the fun Clouds Embossing Folder on it.  Next I took a strip of the umbrella dsp from the Sparkle and Shine dsp, rounded the corners and added to the card front.  I added an oval in Whisper White for a little accent then a strip of Pacific Point.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Black on Marina Mist, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  The top of the umbrella is Melon Mambo and the handle is Basic Black, cut out and added using dimensionals.  This would cheer anyone up who was having a bad day!

CAS 001Yep…using this set again!  I think it is probably my all time FAVORITE from the new Spring Mini!

I haven’t been able to do any challenges recently because I went home to be with my sister who had to have some major surgery.  It went well and she will be in rehab for several months to come.  So I’m back home and ready to start stamping again!

The CAS challenge is one of my very favorites and this week it is a fun sketch challenge.  I used lots of cool stuff from the new Spring mini for it.

The base of the card is Whisper White and I ran it through the Chevron Embossing Folder.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Island Indigo, Pool Party, Basic Grey and So Saffron.  I added tags using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits (Island Indigo, Pool Party, So Saffron) and added a white brad to each before adding to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the one umbrella using Pool Party and Basic Grey and the Other using So Saffron and Basic Grey, cut out, added a Bitty Punch flower and white brad then added to the card front using dimensionals.  Yep…nice and easy!

But for today we have the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge! And today is a GREAT sketch challenge for you!  I just LOVE the umbrellas in the Rain or Shine set…you can make such happy cards with them and that is what I did today.

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight.  I took a piece of the umbrella dsp from the Sunshine and Sprinkles dsp pack.  I punch a half circle in the top of the card so that I could add some Melon Mambo polka dotted scallop ribbon.  I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using the Pacific Point and Melon Mambo.  I did the top of the umbrella in Melon Mambo and the handle in Basic Black, cut them out and added using dimensionals.  The panel was then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestones for some ‘raindrops’.

MelissaWelcome to the second day of Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013 Preview Week!  This is our last week of our Early Bird Special where you can sign up for $29.95…that’s $5 off the regular 5 week subscription price of $34.95!  Well today we have ANOTHER fun project featuring items from the spring mini by one of our very talented designers. Here’s a little sneak peek of the DELIGHTFUL project our talented designer did for you today.

Preview Cards 010In honor of her project (that by the way has a full tutorial with it) I made this card.  I love the clean look to this.  The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece and ran it through the Clouds Embossing Folder.  I tied a piece of the Real Red Stitched Grosgrain around it.  Next I added a layer of Whisper White using Dimensionals.  I too another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Primrose Petals and Basic Grey.  I then pierced the large heart.  I stamped the umbrella top in Pool Party and the handle in Basic Grey and cut out and added using dimensionals.  I then stamped the two ‘raining hearts’ in Real Red.

So…just a fun little card for today.
