Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Challenge

It's Saturday and on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition, we have another sketch challenge for our subscribers!  It is a FUN one this week!  It's not too late to join!  You will still have access to all the projects we've done so far…plus the ones that we will still do!  We've had some AWESOME projects for you to use in classes or stamp camps.  Or..customer to make for themselves or gifts!  Our projects stay up for almost a year after the session is over so you can refer back to them!  Check out how to subscribe on Create with Connie and Mary…or click on the PayPal button along the right side of my blog!

This week Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition has been featuring the products in the Botanical Gazette Suite, plus Plane & Simple!  Well, I guess I didn't get the memo to use Nature Walk…cause each of the other Designers did!  But…that's ok…mine stands out, right?  lol!



This color combination came from the Color Coach!  I'm really loving that little tool…gets me out of my "box" of using colors!  I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered on Baja Breeze that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I added a strip of Pumpkin Pie and then a piece of Love Letter Designer Paper.  I wrapped the 1 1/4 Night of Navy Strip Ribbon from the back of the Pumpkin Pie, then tied a knot at the end with Linen Thread.  I did secure it with a Stampin' Dimensional so it didn't move around.


Finally I stamped the Argyle pattern from Stampin' Up!'s Plane & Simple stamp set in Pumpkin Pie for the "runway".  I stamped the plane in Baja Breeze on scrap Very Vanilla and cut it out.  It is popped up with Stampin'  Dimensionals on the front of the Very Vanilla panel.  Last, I stamped Happy Father's Day from Plane & Simple in Night of Navy Classic Ink.


I think this set makes wonderful masculine cards!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition Design Team did this week!  They did a FABULOUS job!
