Wild About Flowers

CCMC366Woo hoo!  it’s Thursday again and we have another FABULOUS challenge for you for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

This week we have a cool color challenge for you – Perfect Plum, Mint Macaron, and Sahara Sand and since I’m on a Wild About Flowers ‘kick’ lately, I thought this color combo would be PERFECT for it!

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Neutrals dsp – Sahara Sand diagonal print – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 3 x 2 3/4 and 3 x 3/4.  On the larger piece, stamp stem using Mint Macaron, flowers using Perfect Plum, and greeting using Sahara Sand.  Round bottom right corner and add to card front using dimensionals.  Round bottom left corner of narrow piece and add using dimensionals.
  • Tie Whisper White Bakers Twine in Sahara Sand and Perfect Plum buttons and add to card front.

Didn’t that turn out cool?  I thought so!  Speaking of cool…we have just released the Create with Connie and Mary July Mini Session.

Tour de Freaks July Hop

freakwelcome2013Welcome to the July Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!  Although we usually have our hop on the 20th of the month, since many of our participants were in Salt Lake City enjoying the Stampin’ Up! convention so we delayed out hop just a little bit!

But we are here now and ready to share our ideas with you!  This month is a ‘free for all’ so you’ll be getting a little bit of this an a little bit of that!

If you are going forward through the hop, you arrived here from Melissa Davies Rubberfunatics blog!  What GREAT projects!

I am just absolutely wild about the Wild about Flowers set so I decided to use it for my projects.  I have a cute little card and matching mini gift bag for you!

CFJUL15-1I remember seeing a very cool card made by our very own, very talented Wendy Weixler using some ‘frames’ as the background so I used that idea as a ‘theme’ for my cards.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8, run through the Butterflies Embossing Folder and add using dimensionals
  • Cut out frames from Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black…I layered I think 5 different square framelits so I’d have different size frames to play with.  Add frames to card front.
  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  Stamp stem using Mint Macaron, flowers using Watermelon Wonder and greeting using Memento Black.
  • Mint Macaron – 1 x 3 5/8, cut into banner on both sides, add behind stamp panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cut out Itty Bitty Butterfly from Incolor Envelope dsp add to card front.
  • Add some Basic Black Candy Dots to finish it up.

CFJUL15-2So next up I made a cute little gift bag using the Gift Bag Punch board.

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 6 x 10 piece, punch and score.  I folded along the score lines then ran through the Butterfly Embossing Folder.  Put together.
  • Add a Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black frame.  I used the smaller ones that I had cut out.
  • Whisper White – 1 5/8 x 2 1/8.  Stamp stem using Mint Macaron, flowers using Watermelon Wonder and greeting using Memento Black.
  • Incolor Envelope dsp – Watermelon Wonder piece – 3/4 x 2 3/4, cut into banner on both ends, add behind stamp panel and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Watermelon Wonder – punch out Itty Bitty Butterfly, add Basic Black Candy Dot and add to stamp panel.
  • Tie top of bag using Watermelon Wonder 1″ Lace Ribbon.

Here’s the two projects together…

Wild About Flowers

MNTOh…what an easy theme we have for the SUO challenge this time…it’s your favorite new stamp set.

This was another of my ‘must have’ stamp sets with my first order and then did I play with it????  NO!!!!  So I really wanted to play with it, I REALLY needed a make and take for a group of wonderful ladies AND I needed to do my SUO challenge card so I put them all together and this is what I got…so quick and easy and a GREAT way to showcase this set!

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Mint Macaron – 3 3/4 x 5, run top 2/3 through the Elegant Dots Embossing folder.
  • Watermelon Wonder Envelope dsp – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to panel then add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 and run though the Lots of Label framelit.  Cut it down so it is 3 1/4′ long.  Stamp stems in Mint Macaron, flowers in Watermelon Wonder and sentiment (Tin of Cards) in Memento Black.  Add piece to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.
