Favorite Holiday Mini Item

Happy Fall everyone!  WOW…I can’t believe it is already September and even better…the Holiday Mini is LIVE!  Since the mini is LIVE we thought it would be a great time for the design team to use their Favorite Holiday Mini Item.  Now that is tough one and I decided to go with my Favorite Holiday Mini Item right now!  That would have to be the CAT Punch!

Now before I get into any details I have to tell you…this is a BIG card!  The finished size is 4 1/4 x 8 1/2!  I REALLY wanted to do 3 cards and I really wanted to do 3 frames and well, this was the size the worked!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 8, stamp greeting using Memento Black, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Spook Night dsp (stripe) – 1 x 8, add to card front
  • Using Oval Stitched Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits cut out 3 frames – Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Tangerine Tango.  Add the Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango ones to card front (the two sides)
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 8, add to card front
  • Add Cajun Craze Frame using dimensionals
  • Punch out 2 cats from the black print dsp and 1 from Basic Black; add using dimensionals
  • Add some Black Rhinestones and Gold Metallic Shapes to finish off

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – cut out ONE of the window box pieces, cut the top piece in half (to make the back panel) and then run through again to add the slits, put together.
  • Flirty Flamingo – stamp greeting using Memento Black, punch out using the Classic Label Punch
  • Whisper White – Stamp the little flower/leaves from the That’s the Tag set, cut out with matching timeless Tags thinlit, add to tag, color with Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz makers, add tag using dimensionals
  • Tie bow using Flirty Flamingo Runche Ribbon, add using glue dot

All that’s let is to fill it up with grass and Easter goodies!  And speaking of goodies…

Indescribable Gift

SUO121WOOO HOOO!!!  It’s time for another SUO challenge and the theme this time is Mother’s Day card.  Although I no longer need a mother’s day card, I decided to make this in a way that I change the greeting and use it for another occasions later.

I was trolling around Pinterest and saw the flowers done in white with just a touch of pink in there and I thought that was just SOOO pretty!  Yes..I cut out the entire image.  Yes…I am NUTS!!!  But it looks SOOO pretty this way!

Here’s the details…

  • Blushing Bride – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Blushing Bride dotted (Subtles DSP Paper Pack) – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, layer on Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Tie White Silk Ribbon around card and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp flower image using StazOn Jet Black.  Color using Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Blushing bride.  Cut out and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting on Blushing Bride – 1/2 x 2, cut into a banner, sponge around edges using Blushing Bride, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add dazzling details to centers of the 3 large flowers to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see they did with this challenge!

Poinsettia

PoinsettiaHappy Day 4 of the Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013 Preview Week!  Today we have an AWESOME project (and of course more BLOG CANDY)!  How do you fin out what it is?  That’s easy…just visit us at Create with Connie and Mary!

Since the person sharing a project is the ‘queen of clean!’ I just had to do a CAS (clean and simple) card for today!

The base of the card is Whisper White and I ran the front through the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.  I took another piece of Whisper White, added the Oval Designer Frame and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting on Old Olive using versamark and white embossed, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  I made the poinsettia using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive cardstock and the ornament punch from the Merry Mini Punch Pack and some Basic Pearls.  I added this to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

WinterBadgePreview Week HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!!!  And tomorrow I have such a cool project for you complete with full downloadable tutorial AND BLOG CANDY!  Connie and I are starting the Early Bird signups for our Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013 but Saturday is the LAST DAY!  It’s all about Christmas and Winter projects!  And we KNOW how you LOVE Christmas!  It’s not too early to start planning those gifts and decorating and we have lots of GREAT ideas to help you!  See more information over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Happy Thanksgiving!

A very a happy Thanksgiving to one and all!  Just a quick post here as I’m sure you all are busy with all the food prep.  I used the Sweet Sunday sketch…what a GREAT sketch!

The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  I took another piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I took 4 of the prints from the Howlstooth and Scareybones dsp, rounded the opposite corners of each (they are 1 3/8″ square punch) and added to the card front.  Nest was a strip of Basic Grey cut into a banner, two of the Little Leaf sizzlets in Very Vanilla then I stamped the greeting in Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie, punch with Modern Label punch and added using dimensionals.  Finally I added some Basic Rhinestones for a little bling.
