Timeless Talk

CFSwap1I can’t believe convention is over already!  I am exhausted (okay..again…this is an assumption on my part since it is a week until I go!)  and had a FABULOUS time (yep…SURE I will!)

This is my other Control Freak Swap card.  I do LOVE this little set…soooooo much fun!  The base of the card is Crisp Cantaloupe (truly a FABULOUS color!).  I too a piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Argyle embossing folder, layered on Basic Black then added to the card front.  I took the black word print from the Modern Medley (LOVE this dsp)  and added to pieces to the card front.  I stamped the phone on Very Vanilla using StazOn Jet Black, layered on Crisp Cantaloupe, added a Crisp Cantaloupe banner behind it than added to the card front using dimensioals.  I stamped the ‘bubble’ then the greeting using StazOn Jet Black, cut it out and added using dimensionals.  Finally I added a Basic Black Candy Dot to finish it off.

CreateWk2Oh…it’s Saturday again and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 Saturday Challenge!  This week for our subscribers we went a little vintage and for me I used the Timeless Talk and Notable Notions sets!

This week we have a fun color challenge…I bet you can guess it is Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Suede!  If that is what you guessed…you are RIGHT!

The base of the card is Crisp Cantaloupe.  I took a piece of Pistachio Pudding, ran it through the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder, sponged the edges with Pistachio Pudding and added to the card front.  I added a incolor Boutique Details element.  Next I took a piece of Whisper White, scalloped the edge, ran through the Stripe embossing folder then added using dimensionals.  I stamped the frame from notable notions using Soft Suede, cut with the Chalk Talk framelit, punched hole in the top, added a piece of Pistachio Pudding Stretch Ruffled Ribbon, tied with White Baker’s Twine, then added using dimensionals.  The phone is stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe cut out (and LOTS of fussy cutting), a 1/4″ Pistachio Pudding center with a Soft Suede Candy Dot is added to the cent of the phone.  The phone is added using dimensionals.  The greeting is stamped in Soft Suede on Pistachio Pudding, cut into a banner, added using dimensionals then a white button with a Soft Suede Candy Dot in the center was added to finish it off.

CCMC259Happy Thursday Everyone!  And welcome to the Create with  Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  This week we have a fun sketch challenge for you.

The base of the card is Basic Black and I ran it through the dotted embossing folder.  I cut out a Very Vanilla Deco Label Framelit, stamped the greeting in Basic Black and Calypso Coral, then added to the card front.  I added a strip of the music dsp from the Modern Medley pack then added a Large Scallop Basic Black piece.  Next I add a piece of Calypso Coral…for just a pop of color!  I stamped the phonograph using StazOn Jet Black, cut out and added to the card front using Dimensionals to finish it off!

SUOAccessoryOh…it’s time for another SUO challenge and our theme this time is Favorite Accessory!  Oh..this was a tough one because there are sooo many favorite accessories of mine!  But for this one I decided it would be CANDY DOTS…oh my…how fun!  LOVE these!

The base of my card is Natural Cream.  I took the grid print from Soho Subway and added to the base then the number print from the same pack and added.  I took a piece of Early Espresso, cut into a banner and added to the base then a thin strip of Summer Starfruit.  I cut out a Deco Label Framelit from Crisp Cantaloupe, sponged the edges in Crisp Cantaloupe and added using dimensionals.  I stamped the telephone in versamark and embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder, cut out (and yep…I did MAJOR fussy cutting on this!) and added using dimensionals.  The greeting is also embossed with Early Espresso Embossing powder, cut into a banner, sponged with Island Indigo then added with dimensionals.  Finally…for the MUST HAVE accessory…CANDY DOTS in the center of the rotary dial and a couple extra just for fun!

IC394Oh..I so do LOVE this set and matching punch!  It is soooo easy to work with.  As I as looking through the thomaspaul site, I came across this cool pillow and knew I could use my fun set!

The base of the card is Smoky Slate.  I took a piece of Natural White, layered onto Real Red then to the card base using dimensionals.  I cut out three of the Little Leaves sizzlets in Basic Black with the one going off the edge (this is for the CAS-ual Friday challenge of Over the Edge).  I stamped the flower in Smoky Slate and Real Red and punched out.  I punched the smallest flower from the Boho Blossom punch in Real Red and Basic Black, added a Jumbo Rhinestone to the center and added to the center of the flower.  I added these to the card front…the red one is added using a dimensional.  I stamped the greeting using Real Red on Smoky Slate, cut out and added using dimensionals to finish it off.

Wildflower Meadow

Preview 3How this for a fun and easy card!  I just LOVE the Washi Tape!  Anyway…it’s another FUN PREVIEW day on Create with Connie and Mary and another chance to win BLOG CANDY!!!

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight with the corners rounded on the bottom.  I took a piece of Whisper White rounded the corners and layered it on a piece of Night of Navy with the corners rounded.  I added the three Washi Tape designs from Gingham Garden and stamped the greeting from Timeless Talk in Night of Navy.  I used my Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz markers on the Wildflower Meadow background stamp, cut it out and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I put a Basic Rhinestone in the center of the flower for just a touch of bling.
