Tranquil Tulips Bunch


There are some beautiful sets in the Stampin' Rewards section of the Catalogue (page 220-223), but I think my favourite would have to be the Tranquil Tulips stamp set. I made a bunch of these customer thank you cards in a few different colours, but these 2 were my favourites - Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum. It's a 2-step stamp set, which gives the flowers lots of dimension.


I've angled my layers and used the new Quilt Top embossing folder on the Tranquil Tide cardstock. Fresh Fig narrow ribbon is the perfect embellishment (I've attached it with a glue dot).

CCMC480 Merry Patterns


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:
 This was a fun sketch, but I've strayed a little from the design, and haven't taken it too literally
  • I switched out the circle background element for some diamond shapes, courtesy of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits dies. These dies are so versatile and I think they work really well on a Christmas card.
  • Peeking behind the diamond cut-outs is the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, sponged with Crumb Cake ink
  • All of the stamps on my card are from the Merry Patterns stamp set (available FREE until the end of this month with a $450 order).
  • I've used a markers - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler - to colour in my Reindeer's jumper and antlers
  • the pretty blingy silver stars are from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack
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!

Every Good Wish Stamp-a-Stack


This is the second set of cards we are making in this week's Christmas card class. The Merry Music Designer Series Paper is so pretty. Here I've paired it with some deep, rich colours - Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. It's always a shame to have to stick down one side of the paper, so here I've folded it over and tucked a decorative border under the folded edge.

The Every Good Wish stamp set also adds a bold splash of colour, and a sentiment all in one. I've stamped it on some Stitched Squares. The stitched detail means that you can get away with matting it on another colour.

Hopefully everyone will enjoy making these in class this week!

Hearts Come Home Stamp-a-Stack


As soon as I saw the Hearts Come Home Bundle in the Holiday Catalogue, I knew it was going straight on my must-have-now list (does anyone else do that? When I browse a new Catalogue, I write out 3 lists - must-have-now, must-have-soon, and must-have-later....and then sometimes I ignore them and just buy it all NOW lol)

I love little village houses and scenes, and I love the detail in these dies. I've kept these cards pretty simple, so that the dies can shine. Pool Party and Whisper White is such a gorgeous colour scheme for Christmas, especially when you add a touch of sparkle. It's difficult to tell in the pic, but I've applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter with Multipurpose Glue, just to the roofs of some of the houses, the trees and around the edges of the ovals. So pretty!

We'll be making these cards in my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Class this week.

CCMC479 Medallion with a Twist


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:
These colours should be right up my alley, and I was doing fine except that the Garden Green kept throwing me off. I have to admit, it's not my favourite shade! As you can see, I've kept it's impact to a minimum. Lemon Lime Twist, on the other hand, I've let shout from the rooftops!
  • I've tinted my Embossing Paste with Lemon Lime Twist ink refill, and then used the stunning medallion Decorative Mask.
  • The Pretty Label Punch and Label Me Pretty stamp set made quick work of my sentiment.
  • The Everyday Label Punch frames it nicely.
  • The Soft Sky Classic Weave ribbon lends a delicate, pretty touch. A silver Metallic Enamel heart adds just a touch of bling.
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!

Birthday Memories Stamp-a-Stack


If I ever need to whip up a quick card, I always reach for Designer Series Paper. In this case, for my Stamp-a-Stack Class, the Birthday Memories paper. It has such gorgeous designs, that all I needed to add was a punched sentiment. I've used a few different sentiment sets on these cards and we'll be exploring a few different ways to use the Everyday Label punch too.
