CCMC553 Beauty Abounds


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 love these 3 colours together! I'll definitely be using them again. I decided on the Beauty Abounds stamp set for this card. It's a stunning set that requires very little extra work. Here, I just stamped the bokeh circles stamp in Grey Granite, the swirl pattern in Black Memento (then coloured with Blends) and then simply added the butterflies and a sentiment. The finishing touch is a few metallic pearls. Simple!
 
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 Seasons Stamp-a-Stack


This is the second set of cards we are making in class next week:


This layout is an oldie but a goodie. It's one I like to revisit regularly when I need to make a quick batch of cards. All you do is stamp an A4 sheet all over to create a background pattern, and then cut it into quarters. Then, tear 2/3 off the front of your card and place your stamped piece behind it. I used the Painted Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow, Soft Sea Foam, Sahara Sand and Early Espresso. I also added some Polka Dot ribbon or Braided Linen Trim. A piece of vellum soften the design too.

Let me know if you'd like to come along and make these cards next week!

March Stamp-a-Stack Class


There are only a couple of weeks of Sale-a-Bration left (I know, where is this year going??). I have one last Sale-a-Bration class next week, and this is one set of card we are making:


We are using the gorgeous Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper on these cards (a free Sale-a-Bration offering). We are also using a couple of Sale-a-Bration Co-ordination products - the More Than Words stamp set and the Story Label punch.
It's fun to do a fancy fold card every now and then. I especially like this one, because it doesn't use any more cardstock than a regular card!

I still have a couple of spots in class next week (26th or 27th March). Let me know if you'd like to join the fun!

CCMC552 Happy Easter


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:


How adorable is this little bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set from page 30 of the Occasions Catalogue? I've made my card for Easter, but this would also make a sweet welcome baby card.

My colour combination is Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist and Sahara Sand. I coloured the image with a Blender Pen and ink. I cut him out and popped him up on dimensionals. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I simply cut it out with my Trimmer and took a 'bite' out of each corner with the 1/4" Circle Punch. 

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper works so well with this set. I used it on my ducky card recently and I couldn't resist using it again. I also added some Braided Linen Twine for some texture and a touch of rustic charm. I popped on a few Gingham Gala adhesive sequins. I ran the Pool Party layer through the Big Shot with the Subtle embossing folder, and of course used the Stitched Shapes framelits for my 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!

March Blog Hop

 
Welcome once again to the Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This time we have a stamp set challenge! On this hop you will see projects made with Sale-a-Bration stamp sets. There are too many lovely sets to choose from, but I was in a colouring mood, so I went with Lovely Lattice.

I find colouring in and fussy-cutting so relaxing. It's my favourite kind of therapy. I must be in need of therapy because there's lots of both on this card! You can see all the ingredients I've used on this card listed below. I trimmed the Flax ribbon to make it narrower and then singed the cut edge with a lighter to stop it fraying. I also added some tiny pearls (coloured with Blends) to the centre of some of the flowers.

Make sure you check out what everyone else has made. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.
