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!

Hi crafty friends!

I’ve been placed in a time warp and it is Thursday already! Where is the summer going?! Just can’t believe how time is slipping by… But alas, enough whining. It’s time to discuss this week’s sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This was a fun one for me. I haven’t used my oval framelits in awhile so it was fun to get them out and play a bit.

I used Coral Calypso and Basic Black for my go to colors. My flower is Hello Honey which I thought added just the right amount of contrast. I left everything pretty simple because my background DSP is so busy. Working with these colors had me thinking of Halloween! It will be here before you know it! Especially since I’m in this time warp continuum where my time is going just shy of the speed of light!

I gave my sentiment some height by using dimensionals and attached my flower with a glue dot. And that’s all folks! Hope you’ll hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary and view the other designer’s cards and play along! 🙂
