Above the Clouds Easel Card


I really enjoyed making this card! It combines a few of my favourite things - Seaside Spray, gingham and banners. Add a hot air balloon, some sparkly embossing paste and an Easel card and this is what you get:

All those banners have been punched with the Triple Banner Punch, from the In Color Designer Series Paper. And those raised, sparkly clouds just make you want to touch them! I decided on a
Grapefruit Grove hot air balloon, but added a Seaside Spray heart to tie it back in with the rest of the card. I decided to make this an Easel card. I popped the sentiment on the Pretty Label Punch, raised with Dimensionals so that it holds the easel in place.

CCMC569 Mosaic Mood


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
During July we are CaSEing the Annual Catalogue. Each week there will be a picture from the new catalogue, and we can be inspired by either the stamp set, layout or the colours. This is our project for Week 2:

 
I had fun making this one! I used the same idea as the inspiration pic, but used a different set of Designer Series Paper. I cut my image from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper has mosaic tile designs and floral imagery with shiny, transparent accents. I cut out some roses and 3 little bees too. Of course the perfect background pattern is the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder. I also used the Mint Macaron Textile ribbon from the same suite. My sentiment is from the Well Written Dies and Well Said stamp set, layered on to a piece of vellum.

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

More Bird Ballad Birthdays


The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper would have to be one of my all-time favourites. You can do so much with these patterns. These cards have been made almost entirely from the paper - the only stamped part is the sentiment (from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set).
Here's a closer look:


I simply punched out a circle from the paper, making sure my birds were where I wanted them, and then positioned it on a Whisper White Stitched Circle. Some more panels of the DSP to frame it, and some Lace Trim and Linen Thread for embellishment.

These cards will be going in the mail for some special birthdays this month!

CCMC568 Daisy Lane


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
We have something different for the month of July, to celebrate the release of our new Annual Catalogue! Each week there will be a picture from the new catalogue, and we can be inspired by either the stamp set, layout or the colours. This is our project for Week 1:

 
I've taken my inspiration from the colours and Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. The colour scheme is Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I used the Daisy Lane bundle. I'm loving the new Medium Daisy Punch. It's the perfect partner for the large Daisy Punch. I stamped my daisies first and then punched them out and sponged the edges. I also used the punches for the leaves. I curled the petals with my bone folder and also added an extra layer to the centres and fringed the edges.

The Pressed Petals Paper has beautiful pressed flower photographs, and on the reverse side, there are some lovely textural patterns - this hessian is one, and so is the script. I've accentuated the hessian with the Subtle Embossing Folder, and some extra sponging.
How divine is that Rococo Rose Gathered ribbon? It's in the inspiration pic and I couldn't resist using it on my card too. It's hard to see in the pic, but I've also used the Rose Metallic Thread behind the daisies.

I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Bird Ballad Birthday


I made some of these Bird Ballad birthday cards for some special birthdays recently. I used my favourite new In Color, Seaside Spray. It's the prettiest grey-blue shade, just perfect for this row of birdies. I coloured the image using Blends, and cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels. I used another smaller nested Crumb Cake label to frame it. I popped a bit of Silver Thread behind it for a bit of sparkle.
The background piece has had some texture added to it, courtesy of the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder (Note that all Carryover 3D Embossing Folders (pages 198-199) are temporarily unavailable to order. Those marked with an "N" (new) are available).
The sentiment is from Varied Vases. I pull this one out a lot - it is a lovely font and size.

Above the Clouds CaSEing


CaSE stands for Copy and Share Everything. If this card looks familiar, turn to page 8 of the Catalogue and you'll see why. I copied it almost exactly, apart from a couple of the supplies which I don't have (yet!!). And then while you're at it, turn to page 89, and you'll see a card very similar to this one:


The Above the Clouds Bundle is great for making quick and simple cards like this one, or slightly more elaborate ones like the first card. Stamp, punch and you're done! And it makes cards for all occasions, for recipients of any age or gender. You can't ask for much more than that!
