Friendly Wishes

CCMC363bBoy…has this been a CRAZY week!  Connie and I have been super busy getting ready for our second Create with Connie and Mary LIVE event and WOW…do we have some super cool projects for our folks to make!  My friends who are going to be helpers came over to my house yesterday to make their projects so they will be able to help others…oh what fun!

This is also for the casology challenge – repeat!

Speaking of fun…we have a super fun and easy sketch for you for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week.  I decided to go pretty simple on my card and do a masculine twist!

Here’s the details…

  • Lost Lagoon – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 7/8 x 3 7/8, stamp solid triangle in Night of Navy and Lost Lagoon, stamp diagonal striped triangle in Soft Suede.
  • Ink greeting with Night of Navy and Soft Suede, stamp on card front.
  • Layer onto Soft Suede 4 x 4 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Color some Perfect White Accents using a Navy Sharpie and add to card front on diagonal striped triangles.  Add white ones to the solid triangles.

Yep…it’s that quick and easy!

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

What’s Your Type Favor

HopWelcome

WOW…we have made it to the end of Week 2 and another week filled with FABULOUS Card Sets by our incredible design team!  And since it is Saturday the team is going to once again share a favor using the same set they used for their card set.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from the Create with Connie and Mary site.  Now is a GREAT time to subscribe and get ideas for card classes to take you through the end of this catalog!

Since my set was filled with Geometrical images, I decided that my favor also needed to be ‘geometrical’ in shape so I am sharing another triangle favor like I did before,  And for those of you who are subscribers to Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions Celebrations, you know how well this goes with my card set!

What’s Your Type

CAS319I have been having so much fun playing with the What’s Your Type set…there is just so many different things you can do with this set.

I saw that the CAS challenge is to do a masculine card and so since I had this set sitting out on my desk I thought I’d just go with this for the card today.  I’ve also been using my Candy Dots a lot recently so thought that would be a fun add on for this card.

Here’s the details –

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, stamp solid triangle using Night of Navy and Baked Brown Sugar, stamp striped diagonal triangle using Marina Mist.
  • Stamp HAPPY in Baked Brown Sugar, and birthday in Night of Navy (both from Celebrate Today set)
  • Night of Navy – 5/8 x 5 1/2 two strips and add one to each side of the Very Vanilla panel and add to card front
  • Add Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy Candy Dots to finish off

What’s Your Type

SUO103It’s time for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is Geometrical Shapes.  Now I guess that could mean either the card is a geometrical shape or that you can use geometrical shapes on your card.  Hmmm….can you guess which way I took it to mean?

I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy this new set – What’s Your type?.  It is filled with just that …geometrical shapes so you can really have fun creating unique ‘backgrounds’!

Here’s the details –

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 x 5 1/2.  Stamp the large solid circle Crushed Curry, diagonal lined triangle Smoky Slate, chevron Memento Black, small solid circle Real Red.
  • Now cut this into strips.  I did 1″, 1/4″, 3/4″, 3/8″, and then the last piece is 5/8″.  Add dimensionals to the back of each strip and add to Basic Black – 3 7/8 x 5 1/2 and add to card front.
  • Silver Foil – 1/4 x 4 1/4 and add to card front
  • Crushed Curry – 1 x 3 3/4.  Stamp greeting using Memento Black and add to card front using dimensionals

How simple is this?  I love the look of the geometrical panel cut into thinner strips.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!

Set(s): What’s Your Type?, Remember This
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Crushed Curry, Silver Foil
Ink: Memento Black, Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry, Real Red

What’s Your Type

CCMC314I am just soooooo lovin’ this set!  I know when they showed it to us during the catalog preview I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.  Since it was ‘sitting on top of my desk’ since I had done this card on Saturday and this card on Tuesday, I figured it would work perfectly for the color challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary.  Hmmm…I think I was right.  I think this just turned out sooooo cute! and would be perfect for a more masculine or especially for a teen card!

Here’s the details –

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Tangelo Twist dotted dsp (Confetti Celebrations) – 1/2 x 5 1/2 and add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 – stamp the diagnoal line triangle in Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay and Basic Grey
  • Stamp the greeting using Basic Grey
  • Add panel to card base using dimensionals
  • Punch out arrows from Basic Grey using the What’s Up punch and add to card using dimensionals.

Don’t forget to head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and see the great cards by the Design Team.
