Regarding Dahlias Favor

Dahlias FavorWOW…I can’t believe it!  We are at the end of Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014!  It always seems to go by sooooo quickly and WOW…there were just so many FABULOUS card ideas!

On Saturdays each of the design team creates a small 3D or favor to go along with the set they used that week for their card set.  Can you guess what set I use?  Yep…Regarding Dahlias and I just LOVE this set!  For my 3D I made a little seed packet holder.

Here’s the details…

  • Gumball Green – start with piece approximately 6 x 7 1/2.  Fold up 2 1/2″ flap.  Lay the cardstock on the Oval Accents Die so that the fold is along the bottom…that will help hold the packets in.  Cut out with the die.
  • Island Indigo – 1 1/4 x 6.  Lay in the same place as the fold was and cut.  Run through the Chevron Embossing Folder.
  • Whisper White – 5 x 3/4.  Punch with Scallop Edge Punch, a add behind the Island Indigo piece and then add to Gumball Green base.  Tape sides (where the round bump is) to form the pocket.
  • Stamp Dahlia on the Green/Blue flower dsp using Versamark, black emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Punch out Whisper White Label Bracket punch.  Punch out a silver glimmer Modern Label punch, split in the middle and add to each side.  Stamp greeting using Versamark on Pistachio Pudding, black emboss, punch with 1 3/8″ circle punch, add using dimensionals.  Add piece to favor front using dimensionals.
  • Add Island Indigo Candy dots to the Silver Glimmer ends.
  • Fold 2 seed packets so they fit nicely in the favor, add to pocket and you are good to go!

Check out what the rest of the design team did for their favors this week!

Regarding Dahlias

CAS268For the CAS challenge the theme is to CASE Fionna51.  I got no further than the very first card in her gallery!  Check it out here.  I’ve seen so many cards with the panel on an angle like this and couldn’t way to make one too!  I did change several things…different color scheme, different image, different location of the sentiment, added the banner and the button and instead of the pearls I used candy dots and put them in a different location.  Oh…I just love the way it looks!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Modern Medley dsp – 3 3/4 x 6.  Lay at an angle on the card front, trim off and attach.
  • Stamp the flower image on Very Vanilla using Versamark, black emboss, cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Versamark on Cherry Cobbler 5/8 x 4, black emboss, cut into a banner and add to card front.
  • Punch out Basic Black 7/8″ Scallop Circle, add Very Vintage button using Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add two Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots to finish off.

The reason I decided to use this set is I just happened to have the dahlia stamped, embossed, cut out, and ready to go on top of my desk from working with this set for my Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions set this week.

Regarding Dahlias

DahliaI’ve been busy working on my cards for my World Card Making Day Event…and as I’ve been working on cards I’ve had some ‘rejects’ along the way.  This is one of my ‘rejects’.  I decided that even though a card was a reject, it was still a card I like so I decided I’d share some of these rejects on my blog.  Here’s my first one.

This was based on a card I found on Pinterest.  It used non-SU supplies.  I kept the layout and used my SU stuff!  The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took a print from the Epic Day dsp pack and added it to the card base.  I stamped the Dahlia in Pool Party on Whisper White and then cut down and up until I got to the flower then trimmed around the left side of the flower.  I added a strip of Basic Grey behind it then added the panel to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped hello, you using Basic Grey on Pool Part, cut into a banner, added a Cherry Cobbler Button using white baker’s twine then added the banner to the card front using dimensionals.

Regarding Dahlias

TSSC269Oh…I do LOVE this set!  The flower is just sooo striking!  I’m really having fun playing with this set and it’s one of the sets being featured on Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013.  My FAVORITE thing to do with this set is to emboss it with Black Embossing Powder and then color it in!  The Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge was perfect for using this image!

The base of the card if Strawberry Slush.  I too a piece of Pistachio Pudding dsp, added some of the fun Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffled Ribbon behind it then added to the card front.  I added a thin strip of Strawberry Slush cardstock across is.  Next I stamped the Dahlia in Versamark on Whisper White, black embossed then colored in using Strawberry Slush marker and a blender pen.  This is layered on Pistachio Pudding then added using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting with versamark, black embossed, punched with the Artisan punch then did another one in Strawberry Slush, cut in half, layered behind then added using dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestones for just a touch of bling!

TSSC269Well lookie there…I actually followed the sketch pretty closely!  I know you want to play join us and we’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Clean & Simple

CAS226Oh my favorite three words…CLEAN AND SIMPLE!!!  And I always look forward to the CAS challenge on SCS and love when I can play along!  This week the challenge was an inspiration challenge from Pintrest.  You know the whole thing about CAS is just that…to keep it clean and simple but it is more than just stamping a image on a folded piece of cardstock…there has to be those little extras…well, at least for me!

This was SOOO quick and easy to make.  The base is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, stamped the greeting from Regarding Dahlias (one of the sets we are using this week on Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013) in Basic Black.  I then score two lines add added this to the card front using dimensionals.  I decided the inspiration colors were Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise and punched out the medium flower from the Boho Blossom Punch in each of the colors.  I snipped between the ‘petals’, folded up the petals then added to the card front.  I love grounding bright colors like this with a little bit of black so the center of each flower is 1/4″ Basic Clack Circle and then just a little rhinestone in the center of each to finish it off.
