CCMC632 Forever Flourishing


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 Cajun Craze is not one of my favourite colours. I don't tend to use earthy tones very often, and I only seem to pull out Cajun Craze when I'm stamping autumn leaves! It's quite a strong colour, so here I balanced it out with lots of Very Vanilla and Mint Macaron. 

Here are a few pointers for making this card:
  • Even though I kept the background plain, I added texture with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
  • The die cut leaves are from the Forever Flourishing Dies (partners to the Forever Fern stamp set)
  • The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set
  • I added a touch of gold with a few gold glitter enamel dots, and some gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack 
  • The Mint Macaron and Gold Designer Series Paper is from the Gilded Autumn Specialty 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

Boho Indigo by Kathy


I have another Shoebox Swap card to share with you today. This card was made by me, but not designed by me. All of the Shoebox cards were designed by some lovely ladies in my team for our Stamp Camp weekend retreat. Some designs I changed very little and others I altered a bit (usually because I made a boo-boo that needed covering up!). 

This card is by Kathy Reeves. We used the Boho Indigo Product Medley for this one. The hardest part about this card was deciding which sheets of patterned papers to use! They are all too pretty.

I love how this card opens up:


You can see all the supplies we used listed below. What is a Shoebox Swap, I hear you ask? All the ingredients for making a card are included in each box, including pre-cut cardstock. It's great to be able to sit down and make a card without having to think/plan/design.

Tasteful Touches by Paula


I have another Shoebox Swap card to share with you today. This card was made by me, but not designed by me. All of the Shoebox cards were designed by some lovely ladies in my team for our Stamp Camp weekend retreat. Some designs I changed very little and others I altered a bit (often because I made a boo-boo that needed covering up!). 

I think when everyone opened this box at Stamp Camp, we all knew who the designer was. Our lovely Paula Duke is known for her signature purple! I added a touch of gold to Paula's design, but apart from that I changed very little. You can see all the supplies listed below.  

What is a Shoebox Swap, I hear you ask? All the ingredients for making a card are included in each box, including pre-cut cardstock. It's great to be able to sit down and make 10 cards without having to think/plan/design.

CCMC631 Nothing's Better Than


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 much fun is the Nothing's Better Than bundle? There are endless possibilities with these stamps and dies. This was my first play with this set, but it won't be my last!

I decided to go with Gorgeous Grape for this card (or should that be Cadbury Purple??). I stamped some chocolates in the background and coloured some extra ones to feature on my card. I used Early Espresso ink and a Blender Pen to colour the chocolates and popped them on a piece of kitchen foil. I think they look almost good enough to eat!

The Dainty Diamonds embossing folder is perfect to add just a touch of texture to the Early Espresso strip. 

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!

Some designs I changed very little and others I altered a bit (usually because I made a boo-boo that needed covering up!). 

This card is by Jennie Whitaker. I had fun playing with this one and shifting things around...sometimes I like playing by the rules and sometimes I'm a rebel lol. This is a great masculine card. You can see all the supplies we used listed below.
