Perfect!

Hello fine friends! It is color challenge time this week at Create with Connie and Mary! This is such a pretty color combo! Here is what I came up with:

Perfect

My DSP background is from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. I love love love all the designs of this DSP! I ran my top strip of card stock through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb embossing folder. I like how it mimics the honeycomb pattern of the paper. My sentiment is from Perfect Pennants and I used the ever so useful Handheld Stapler to attach a strip of Pool Party.

Seriously, I love that thing! It is powerful enough to staple through some pretty thick stuff and gentle enough for the more fragile. Anywho, thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll pop on over to see the other designer’s cards at Create with Connie and Mary. They will provide you with great ideas and EYE CANDY! 😉 It’s sure to get your creative groove going so come along and play with us!

SPOOKY!

It’s sketch challenge time over at Create with Connie and Mary!

And ok… maybe my card is not so “spooky” per se but I’ll tell you what is. The amount of time I spent deciding whether I should leave the entire Spider Web Doily whole or trim it. It really was nerve rattling. I went back and forth destroying many a web along the way and I eventually went with an altered doily.

Spooky

I couldn’t quite get the three banners from the sketch in my take so I used three Basic Rhinestones. I also used the Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape under the Happy Haunting DSP. If you can’t tell already, I LOVE the new holiday catalog! Let me know if you need a copy and I’ll get one to you!

If  you’re looking for some creative mojo look no further than the other designer’s creations over at Create with Connie and Mary! Happy Crafting!

Hey hey! It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! This week it was a challenge indeed! I struggled because these colors scream BOY to me and I was stumped!

So, truth be told… I have never made a boy card. Ever. I have two girls and we are all flowers and rainbows over here! So I went out of my comfort zone and did things a little different. No flowers. No bling.

Rock

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits for my “you” and the “rock” is from the Crazy About You stamp set. Of course the star here is the Gorgeous Grunge. And that’s it. Easy doesn’t even cut it! But it’s bright and boy-ie and my mind can rest from scrambling on what to do with the color combo!

Unfortunately my blade is dull on my Paper Trimmer but I like the way that it roughed up the edge of the card stock! Ha! Now I don’t feel so bad about forgetting to put blades on my last order! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! If you’d like to see some other great cards using this color combo pop on over to Create with Connie and Mary and if you’re up for the challenge, join in!

Friendly Wishes

 

Hi crafty friends! Here is this week’s sketch challenge with Create with Connie and Mary.

I inverted the sketch and came up with this number:

For my stripes in the background I used a stamp from the Perfect Pennants set. The sentiment is from my new fav Friendly Wishes. My flower was made using the Pansy Punch and I peeled a layer back on the petals to give it some dimension. I also used a Vintage Faceted Button with some Basic Pearls centered in it. Instead of seeing a mustache this week I am seeing a bird’s nest. 😉

My stamped dots are mimicked behind the sentiment with the DSP from the Cherry on Top Stack.  And that about covers it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stop on over at Create with Connie and Mary  and check out the other designer’s cards and play along. It’s guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing!
