CCMC459 Rustic Leaves


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

I spy with my little eye...some brand new framelits, stamps and DSP! I've been playing with some new goodies from our 2017-18 Annual Catalogue....only 7 sleeps to go and you can get your hands on them too.
  • I've gone for a rustic feel and used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. This 6"x6" paper stack has every type of wood pattern and colour you could possibly wish for. I know I'll be using these a LOT.
  • I've used a Delicate White Doily for the medallion element.
  • The gorgeous detailed leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Aren't they stunning! I've die-cut one in Soft Suede and one in Early Espresso. I've also die-cut 2 solid leaves in vellum, and sponged the edges to place behind the detailed leaves.
  • The sentiment is from the co-ordinating stamp set Colourful Seasons. The font in this set is just beautiful. I've stamped it in Early Espresso
  • I've pulled out an old favourite Timeless Textures to stamp the edges of my Sahara Sand card
  • The vertical banner is Copper Foil Sheet, which I've lightly sanded to give a distressed look
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!

Farewell Mint Macaron


I made this card design in a few different colours, but this Mint Macaron version was definitely my favourite. It's a simple design but the Acetate and splashes of gold make it feel special. The butterfly has been punched from the doily centre (waste not, want not!) and the Metallic Enamel Shapes finish off the stamped flowers perfectly.
Farewell, Mint Macaron!

Dapper Eastern Palace


Dapper Denim, Very Vanilla and Gold makes for an elegant colour combination. There's very little stamping on this card....the Designer Series Paper and Gold Vinyl stickers do all the work. How amazing do these beautiful stickers look? There's lots of layered circles on this card and it's hard to tell from the pic, but it has lots of dimension. I've also angled the main piece to make it more dynamic. It's a good trick to have up your sleeve to take a simple card to the next level, without adding anything more.

May Stamp-a-Stack Classes


These are the cards we made in this month's Stamp-a-Stack Class. We used a mixture of Retiring and carrying-over products. I focused on a couple of retiring bundles. The products in these bundles are in our new catalogue, but not at the 10% off bundle price. So, if you love them, get them before the end of May!
We also said goodbye to some In Colors - Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon and Tip Top Taupe. These cards also feature Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum, which are hanging around for another year.

TIP: the Badge punch makes a great scalloped border!

Eastern Palace with a Twist!


A Lemon Lime Twist, that is! Put on your sunglasses because this new In Color is *bright!*
I love it though! We've never had a colour this neon and I know I'm going to have lots of fun with it.
Here I've paired it with Dapper Denim (from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper) and I think they work really well together.
Can you spot the pretty gold border? It's one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers. It adds just the right touch of glam.

Black and White Builder Birdcages


Our Occasions Catalogue is coming to an end, and I'm going to miss the Builder Birdcage stamp set. I love the whimsical birdcages, and the cute little birds and accessories. I made these cards for a couple of special people :) I've gone for black and white, with a splash of colour - one in Rich Razzleberry and one in Real Red.

CCMC458 Swirly Scribbles Catalogue CaSE


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnienadmary.com.
This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:  

One of my favourite things about having a new Catalogue is that it is full of inspiration and ideas to copy. This card is pretty much an exact copy of the one on page 171 of the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue. I've just changed the colours for our challenge ones and switched the sentiment.
  • I've used the Swirly Scribbles stamp set and co-ordinating dies (get them as a 10% off bundle by purchasing before June 1!)
  • The sentiment is a sneak peak from a new stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous. You're going to see a lot more of this one!
  • The ink spatters are from the Timeless Textures stamp set
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!

Ombre with a Flourish


Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum make a perfectly sweet pairing on this ombre card. The pretty graduated effect is so easy to achieve with the ombre inkpads. These are available in 4 colours, and they are on the Retiring List, and are 20% off at the moment!
The Flourishing Phrases Bundle is also on the Retiring List...the stamps and dies will be in our new Annual Catalogue, but not at the 10% off bundle price.
One of my favourite parts of this card are the little snippets of vellum. They add such a soft, delicate touch.

Eastern Palace with Tassels


More fun with Eastern Palace! On this card I've made use of the stickers and the mini tassels that are part of the bundles. Now, I must confess, when I read that we had new vinyl stickers, I wasn't too sure. I needn't have worried because these are really high quality and add an instant touch of glamour. The border strips on this card are stickers. They work really well with our Gold Foil Sheets too!
The mini tassels come in 3 colours and are just stunning. This one is Fresh Fig (new In Color) and I've attached it to the medallion with some gold thread. The gorgeous deep green is Tranquil Tide (can you tell I'm loving the new In Colors already?)
