Rev Up the Fun

CFSwap2Oh…having such a GREAT time at convention!!!  (and although I’m writing this before I left…I’m still sure I’m having a GREAT time at convention!)

Today we are having our Control Freaks swap.  At some point during the convention the Control Freaks get together and do a swap just between us.  I LOVE swapping with this group…such a talented bunch of folks (oops…almost said ladies but we do have some gentlemen too now!)

For our swap we each do 2 cards and this is the first of the two I did (I’ll show you the other one of Sunday so stay tuned for that!  I do love 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 cards and both of mine were that size.  The base of the card is Real Red.  I took a piece of Bermuda Bay added the Basic Grey Chevron strip then the two dsp banners  I then added the panel to the card base.  Next I punched out a 2 1/2 Whisper White circle, stamped the tire tread using Smoky Slate then the greeting using Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral.  I used my new Circle Framelits to cut out a Basic Grey Circle, added the Whisper White circle and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the motorcycle in Real Red, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I just LOVE the new Candy Dots so I added Whisper White, Basic Grey and Real Red ones to finish it off.

CreateWk3Oh…Week 3 of Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 has ended (still one week to go) and we had such a great time with Guys and Gals…using sets to make both masculine and feminine versions of the project!  But remember…those can only be seen if you are a subscriber!

This week is a sketch challenge…LOVE those! and here’s my card.  The base of the card is Pool Party.  I took the arrow print from I Am Me dsp, added strips of Real Red along the top and bottom and added to the card front.  I cut the Basic Grey label with the Deco Label Framelit, added a Pool Party banner with a strip of Calypso Coral on there, stamped the greeting using Basic Grey, cut out with the oval framelit then added to the card front using dimensionals.  I then stamped the motorcycle in Real Red, cut out and added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off!

You want to make sure you check out the AWESOME cards from our Design Team…they are THE BEST…so head over to Create with Connie and Mary now.

TSSC271What I love most about this set is that really you can easily do it as a girl or a boy kind of card or project and when you pair it up with the fun I Am Me dsp…it can’t get any better than that!  I couldn’t resist using these for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!

The base of the card is Real Red.  I took the fun multicolored arrow print, layered it on a piece of Basic Grey then scalloped the edge.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey and Real Red on Pool Party, added to the layer then I added two thin strips of Calypso Coral (this wasn’t on the sketch but I really liked it on there).  I stamped the motorcycle in Pool Party, Real Red and Calypso Coral, punched with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch, Layered on the 1 3/8″ Square Punch then added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

TSSC271Isn’t this just a great sketch…so many options!  It’s fun for both smaller images and larger ones where you use just part of it!  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!

CAS228Talk about a CHALLENGE!  The CAS challenge on SCS is to do a single layer card with masking.  At first I thought…no…can’t do that.  Then I decided to take on the challenge.  I’m glad I did…what a fun card this ended up being!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I stamped the motorcycle in StazOn Jet Black, masked it then stamped the tire tread in Smoky Slate, punched a 1 3/4″ Circle from a piece of card stock and used the open area to sponge in So Saffron and Crush Curry.  I removed the masks then stamped the greeting using Crushed Curry and Basic Black.  Yep…that’s all there is…easy as can be!

summerpromoAnd speaking of easy…it really is THAT EASY to subscribe to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013!

IC383Oh…now THIS is a bit different for me!  I got this set just for the fun of it (okay and I MIGHT be using it for one of my projects for Create with Connie and Mary) and I couldn’t resist using it for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS this week.

My inspiration piece is here and I went with the colors…you all know I do LOVE these colors together!  I also did this for the Stampin’ Celebrations Inspiration Challenge.

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight.  I took a piece of Whisper White, added a piece of the Basic Grey Striped Washi Tape, layered on Basic Grey.  Next I added the thin Basic Black strip.  I stamped the greeting in Basic Black on Daffodil Delight, added to the panel (with the end hanging over a bit) then added this panel to the card front on an angle using dimensionals.  I inked the car using Daffodil Delight and Basic Black, cut out and added using dimensionals.  Finally I used some of the new Basic Grey Candy Dots – one on the banner and then in the center of each tire.
