CCMC544 Butterfly Gala

 
It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:

 
I think I'm a little bit in love with this card. Coastal Cabana, Black and White is one of my favourite colour schemes ever. The new Butterfly Gala Bundle is just to die for too. And that black and white gingham paper...I think I need a whole pack of just that sheet! It's a Sale-a-Bration design in the Botanical Butterfly pack. Thankfully the whole pack is pretty awesome - there's a black and white design on one side of every sheet.
 
This card came together really quickly, thanks to photopolymer stamps and a matching punch. Even the colouring was quick and easy with my Blends. I used Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay, since there's no Coastal Cabana. I'm so glad the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is hanging around. That combination of sheer and sparkle is so pretty.  I added a bit more sparkle with the Rhinestone jewels.
 
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!

Happiness Blooms Suite


Dave and I are back from our New Zealand cruise, ready to get stuck into the year!

Happiness Blooms is one of my new faves from the Occasions Catalogue. You can see it on pages 24-25. This card was a make-and-take at a recent Demonstrator Training event. I made a few changes though, just to make it my own. The colours I've used are Lovely Lipstick, Call me Clover and Night of Navy. The sentiment is from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set on page 16.

You'll be seeing a lot more of this set from me! I hope you're having a lovely day.

Made to Bloom Kit


This is the other kit I plan to work on during my Cruise. This one is an all-inclusive kit, so all I need to take is some adhesive. The stamps, inks and everything else I need are already in there. It makes 12 cards and matching envelopes. And then at the end, I still have the stamp set to use on other projects.
I love making cards when all the hard work is done for me! This would make a great gift too. Check it out in the video:

CCMC543 Hoppy Hoppy Birthday

 
It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:
 
This was my first play with the So Hoppy Together Sale-a-Bration set. You can earn this set for free when you place an order for $90 or more during January, February or March. I know these cute frogs are going to be very popular! 
 
For this card, I took the froggy on a unicycle and snipped him off it. Then he was ready to hold a bunch of balloons. The balloons are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set, and I've punched them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I used my Blends to colour everything in, and drew the balloon strings by hand.
 
The sentiment is from 2 different sets - "Hoppy" from So Hoppy Together and "Birthday" from Piece of Cake. The Designer Series Paper I've used is from the Occasions Catalogue - called Happiness Blooms. I've also used a piece of the new Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon. A few of the new Heart Epoxy Droplets finish it off nicely!
 
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

Classic Garage Suite


I'm always excited when we have some new masculine products to play with. The Classic Garage Suite definitely fits the bill. You can find it on page 42-43 of the Occasions Catalogue.

We made this little Pizza Box at a recent Demonstrator training event. It's the perfect size to fill with a few treats. We used the Classic Garage DSP and co-ordinating Geared Up Garage bundle. You can see the products listed below.

Thanks for visiting!

Incredible Like You Kit


Dave and I are taking his Mum on a 12-day Cruise around New Zealand at the moment (thanks to scheduled posts, I can keep my website updated!). In my luggage I have packed this kit, so I can craft while I cruise. I love the kits for crafting on the go. All I need to pack is the kit, the stamps, a couple of inkpads and some adhesive. I'll have 16 cards ready to go, and a pretty Polypropylene Storage Envelope to keep them in.

The best thing is, when you order this kit and the stamps, you are only $15 away from qualifying for a free Sale-a-Bration item! What are you waiting for? Shop here

Check out how pretty these are in the video:

CCMC542 Amazing Day

 
It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:


I haven't had many opportunities to play with my new goodies yet, but I did ink up some new stamps for this challenge! This set is from the Occasions Catalogue and is called Incredible Like You and I've paired it the All My Love Designer Series Paper, and taken my colour scheme from there. The colours are Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam.
 
I've used the Leaf Punch from the Annual Catalogue, punched from Soft Sea Foam cardstock. To give the leaves some texture, I stamped them repeatedly with the small leaf from the stamp set. I used my trusty Stitched Shaped framelits for the oval.
 
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!
