Stamp a Bag

CCMC374Oh…what a fun color challenge we have for you for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge.  The colors are Watermelon Wonder, Calypso Coral, and Blushing Bride.  What a pretty color combination!  I decided to do a little ‘ombre’ look.  I just LOVE these large dots from the Stamp a Bag set and it was just what I needed for what I wanted to do!

Here’s the details…

  • Watermelon Wonder – 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 6,  stamp 2 rows of dots in Watermelon Wonder, 2 in Calypso Coral and 2 in Blushing Bride.  Add strip of Silver Glimmer 5 3/8 x 1/4.  Layer onto Basic Black 2 7/8 x 6 1/8 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut out happy from Hello You Thinlits from Basic Black and add to card front.
  • Punch out some flowers from Basic Black add to card front.
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to the centers of each flower.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

Happy Birthday, Everyone


Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop where the FABULOUS designers pick a theme and we each off a project based on that theme.  For the month of August we are going to be having fun with the new incolors.  This week we are taking a look at WATERMELON WONDER!

Now I will say I do like most of the new incolors.  Can’t say they are my absolute FAVS but not bad.  Only really one I don’t like all that much…oh, but will save THAT for another week.  Don’t worry…you’ll be able to figure THAT one out!

And so this week is watermelon wonder and I do like watermelon…both the color and the fruit!  LOL!!!  Here’s my card…


I decided for this week to keep it pretty simple with a CAS card.  I have to say…I HAD to have this hostess set because I LOVE the big happy BIRTHDAY – it just makes me smile.  And then I just HAD to have the Stamp a Bag set for the row of dots…what can I say…it’s just SO ME!  So you put those two things together and well…the card pretty much made itself!  LOL!!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK cardstock (LOVE this stuff!) – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded and round the bottom right corners.
  • Incolor Envelope dsp (Watermelon Stripe) – cut two pieces 1/2 x 4 1/2, add on a diagonal, crossing them and trim off ends
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp row of dots in Watermelon Wonder, greeting in Memento Black, round bottom right corner and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • And since it is a birthday card…add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off!

I TOLD you it was quick and easy!  LOL!!!
