CCMC493 Flying Home


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:

I must admit that I am guilty of not using Marina Mist very often, so it was fun to be challenged with it. It's really pretty with Old Olive and Calypso Coral.
  • I CaSEd the layout for this card from page 41 of the Occasions Catalogue.
  • The stamp set is Flying Home, also on page 41. I coloured the image using Blender Pens and ink, and used the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut it out
  • The sentiment is from A Good Day on page 14. I popped a little piece of the shimmery Sale-a-Bration ribbon behind it.
  • I used the Sweet Soiree Specialty paper in the background.
  • It's hard to tell in the photo, but I've added a touch of sparkle using some of the Glitter Epoxy Dots on page 33.
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!

CCMC492 Petal Passion


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:

One of my favourite suites in the Occasions Catalogue is Petal Passion. I love the elegant watercoloured look.
On this card I've used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper for the striped background, plus I also snipped out the large flower from one of the sheets. I then coloured it using my Blends in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.
I've used the Petal Palette stamp set for the sentiment, and the co-ordinating Petals and More thinlits dies for the beautiful intricate border element, and to cut out the sentiment. I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for a bit of sparkle.
I used Fresh Fig for my background colour. I felt that the deep tone suited the other elements.

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!

Tickled Pink Piggy


It's always fun when you discover that a sentiment designed for one stamp set (flamingos) works equally well for another (piggies!). I couldn't resist making a card combining the two.
TIP: I made my own faux-embossed cloud background by adhering white cloud diecut shapes to a white piece of cardstock and then running it through the BigShot.
I watercoloured my little piggy using ink and an aqua painter. The Fresh Florals paper adds a splash of soft Powder Pink to the bottom half of my card, and I've finished it off with some Soft Sky Classic Weave ribbon.
I think this piggy does indeed look 'tickled pink'!

Pretty Petal Palette


I made a couple of these cards for a couple of very special birthdays. I made it in a few different colours, just for fun. I CaSEd the design from page 22 of the Occasions Catalogue (my favourite page!). It's always great to have a new Catalogue to borrow ideas from :)
I coloured the image with my Blends, and did a light watercolour wash using ink and aqua painter behind the image.

CCMC491 Picture Perfect


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:

How lovely and summery are these 3 colours? So bright and cheerful! Perfect colours for my first make of 2018.
  • I've used some new products from a brand new suite - it's called Picture Perfect Party and it's lots of fun. The stamps are from a set called Picture Perfect Birthday, and the patterned paper is a 6"x6" stack called Picture Perfect Party.
  • I've also used some of the Sale-a-Bration Shimmer Ribbon on this card. You can earn this 3-pack for FREE by ordering $90 worth of products. I've used Bermuda Bay, and the other 2 colours are Calypso Coral and Basic Grey. All 3 are different widths, so there's lots of opportunity to create different looks
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!

CCMC 490 Myths and Magic Mermaid


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:

More new stuff! One of my favourite new Suites in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue is Myths and Magic. It is so much fun to play with!
  • For this card, I've predominantly used the Designer Series Paper in the suite. It is a specialty paper, and has touches of sparkle on it. Even the mermaid image is punched from the paper.
  • I've added extra dots of sparkle using the Glitter Epoxy Shapes (also in the Occasions Catalogue).
  • The Ruffled Embossing Folder adds some gentle waves to the Lemon Lime Twist background.
  • The Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Party Pandas set (a Sale-a-Bration set that I know everyone is going to fall in love with). I've punched it with the Classic Label punch
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!

Painted Sunflowers


I'm so glad this Painted Harvest stamp set is on the Carryover List! That means you can still order it, and it might even appear in our next Annual Catalogue. The bundle, however definitely won't be, so now is a good time to grab that!

Who says sunflowers have to be yellow? I think they look just as pretty in Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party!
