Bold and Bright for Lara

Happy Thursday! It’s sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary. This is one of those rare times that I already knew who I was making this card for before I started. But first the sketch:

I made this card for my lovely neighbor and friend Lara. I made her a gift and this card will be accompanying it. I got a Silhouette for Christmas and she is my first victim. Haha! I’ll post that picture tomorrow. Lara is not afraid of color or pattern. She mixes combinations that I would never dare to but when she does it her projects come out beautiful! So with that being said, my bright colors combined with different patterns are a tribute to her. 🙂

My flower was made from punching already stamped scraps (you can bet your bippy that I save every snip-it);) with the Pansy and Fun Flower punch. My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, one of the first sets I ever bought!

I used a circle punch on the top of the treat bag so that she can use her fingers to easily pull the message out. And it helps show off the bling-y sequin trim!

Color Repeat?

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!

Look Ma, No Ink!

Ahhh yes, it’s that time again. Sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! I got some goodies in that I just had to use for this card!

Thanks

I knew as soon as I saw the sketch that I wanted to use the Expressions Natural Elements. I also used the new Cherry on Top DSP stack! Love how this is 6×6 too. I used the Petite Petals and the flower from Itty Bitty Accents Punch to make my little flower. My color combo is the new Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

Anywho, Come and play along you can also take a peek at the other designer’s cards here! 🙂
