Playing with Blossoms


I'm hoping you're not totally sick of seeing this stamp set featured on my blog! I'm certainly not sick of using it.

Here, my colour combination is Soft Sea Foam, Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Petal Pink.
I've stamped on a Stitched Rectangle and popped a co-ordinating panel of DSP (from Playing with Patterns) behind. It's difficult to tell in the pic, but my flowers have shimmery petals (thanks to Wink of Stella) and shiny centres (thanks to Shimmery Crystal Effects).

I love this sentiment from the Boho Indigo Product Medley. I know I'll be using it a lot!

Thanks for stopping by!

Simple Greenery


Just a quick one from me today... now that I'm working most weekdays, my weekend to-do list is just too gigantic (and, sadly, mostly filled with mundane tasks like washing, grocery shopping and cleaning). I did manage to fit in a little crafting time though!

I use this type of layout a lot - 3 panels of DSP (these are from Forever Greenery), and a sentiment mounted on top. I used the Stitched Rectangles for a bit of extra detail, and finished off with some In Good Taste elements.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a great weekend!

CCMC619 Boho Indigo


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 1:


I didn't stray too far from the sketch at all for this one. I used the same layout and stamp set, but used a totally different colour palette - Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla.

All of the patterned paper, and the dry embossed paper comes from the Boho Indigo Product Medley. You can get the whole Medley, including stamps and dies for $122, or just the refill for $40 - this will get you the paper, die-cuts and paper flowers.

My stamped flowers are Painted Poppies...who says poppies can't be blue? I stamped in Misty Moonlight and gave them a light watercolour wash with a Water Painter and ink.
The stamped sentiment is from the Boho Indigo Medley, and I've punched it out with the Story Label punch. 

I always like to add a few finishing touches to a card. In keeping with the Inspiration card, I popped on some twine under the punched sentiment (from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo pack), and a few Rhinestones scattered on the card.

I was happy with how this one came out. I hope you like it too! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Textured Blossoms


The Blossoms in Bloom stamp set has very quickly become my go-to when I need to make a quick card. I'm trying it out in a few different colour combos. This one is Rococo Rose, Bumblebee and Just Jade. After I'd stamped I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder to give it a fabric-like texture.
I only added some ribbon and a sentiment to finish it off.

CCMC618 Whale of a Time


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've been itching to play with the Whale of a Time Suite in the new Catalogue, and this was the perfect opportunity. I created my underwater scene using a sheet of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. I stamped some extra little schools of fishies on there in Pool Party ink. Mama whale and her baby are also snipped from the DSP. The Whale Punch cuts out the stamped Whale image AND images from the DSP too. Very handy!

For my colour scheme, I've taken colours from the DSP. The colours I wanted to accentuate are Pretty Peacock and Granny Apple Green, so I chose them as my cardstock colours. I also added some texture with the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder.

How perfect is this sentiment? So cute! 

This was such a fun card to make! Now I need to use all the other underwater creatures in the Suite. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Forever Greenery


I always love having new patterned papers to play with. This year there are lots of gorgeous patterns to choose from. I've used one of my new favourites on this card - Forever Greenery. As you can see, the colours are right up my alley!

With paper this beautiful, I didn't need to do much else on this card. I used 2 pieces, and left a small gap between them. I finshed off with a punched sentiment and a pretty bow.

Thanks for stopping by!
