Color Repeat?

CCMC364

Hello Friends!

It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Clearly I did not look ahead when I posted last week’s challenge card or I would have chosen a different color scheme! But I did change it up a bit. My last two cards have been ink free so I decided to stamp it up a little. Get it? Stampin’ Up?! HAHAHA! Cheddar moment! 😀

I used the Butterfly Basics set along with a little flower from Friendly Wishes that I inked with the Stampin’ Write Markers. My thread is actually a strip I unraveled from the Burlap Ribbon. It’s got a bit more umph than the linen thread if that makes sense!

Happy1Thanks for stopping by and if you’re looking for inspiration be sure to check out the rest of the designer’s cards and play along at Create With Connie and Mary!

Hey Gang! It’s another sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This was a fun one to work with.  I wrestled with my color combo but finally came up with this number. Naturally, there is some pink involved. Ha!

This is a Strawberry Slush and Basic Gray duo. I used the Hardwood background stamp on the gray with Craft Stampin’ Ink and topped it with the In Colors DSP. I want us all to have a moment of silence… in hopes that Strawberry Slush will be continued! Oh my, I LOVE it!

The stamps sets I used are Crazy About You and For Being You. I used the Banner Punch and trimmed it with the Paper Snips. The Pansy punched DSP is topped with a Basic Metal Button and Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

I hope you’ll play along with us this week! It is certain to get your creative mojo flowing! Click here to join in the fun!

 

Scrappy Note Cards n’ Box

Hello There! Are you a paper hoarder like me? Does any of this paper look familiar to you? It may not because it is quite a few years old and it has been sitting in my secret stash of scraps.  I just cannot purge. It is too much to bare! So… I decided to use them! These cute note cards are all made from scratch paper, even the card stock was scratch. I hereby announce that not one single sheet of 8.5 x 11 card stock was cut!

The stamps are all current though. We have the Four Frames, Petite Pairs, and Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I made a little gift box for someone and put a couple of these cute numbers in there. I took the pic of the box in a hurry with my cell phone and the picture is so awful that I put it in black and white. It’s just so busy with the counter top, paper, ribbon, and reflection from an empty box of cupcakes. 😉

CCMC283 – Sketch Challenge

Hello

HELLO!

It has been a loooong time since I posted and shared. I bet you can guess what one of my New Year’s resolutions is! 😉 But trust me, I have an excuse. I just found out that we are expecting! So there ya have it, big news on the home front!!

I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I have a new swap coming up and I was needing some inspiration so I decided to try the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge (CCMC283 – Sketch Challenge).

It got my mojo going and I came up with this “hello love” card using the new stamp sets Perfect Pennants and Banner Blast. Also, the Banner Punch is going to be in the next annual catalog so get yours while the gettin’s good!
