CCMC-OCC6 – Rue Des Fleurs

Wow…can you believe we've come to the end of the Occasions 2012 Edition of Create with Connie and Mary!  It has been SO fun unveiling all the Design team projects every day.  And WOW!!!  Some really great ideas…we hope you thought so, too!  I can't wait to make up some of their ideas myself!  We'll be back soon for the New Catalog 2012 Edition!


Our last Challenge for the Occasions Edition is for the Design Team Members…we used a fabulous sketch!  I know I'll be using this one again!



I used Rue Des Fleurs for my card, one of the sets we've been featuring this week in the Occasions Edition!  I'm really liking this set, but the corset is one of my favorites!



I started with a base of Pool Party and sponged around the edges with Soft Suede Ink.  I cut a piece of the Attic Boutique Designer Paper for the background and layered it on Soft Suede.  I stamped the corset from Rue Des Fleurs in Soft Suede, then lightly colored the flowers in Pool Party and So Saffron.  I used the Labels Collection Framelit to cut it out and layered on the larger size of Soft Suede.  The edges were sponged again with Soft Suede.  I added the string of pearls for the top and the bottom and bent them to fit the curve of the label.  This was popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I punched the flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch in So Saffron and Soft Suede and layered them together, using a brown Glimmer Brad in the center.  Finally, I stamped Thanks for the same set in Soft Suede on a pennant piece.  I love the vintage feel to this card…and I don't "do" vintage very often!  lol!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team did with this sketch this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Very cute card Connie. I love this stamp set also and like how you snuck some punch art flowers in the mix!
