Another favorite set of mine in the Occasions Catalog is Painted Petals.  I love the small blossoms and soft lines on the images.  Here’s a quick card I put together using it!


Painted Petals


  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Coastal Cabana cardstock, folded in half.
  • On the 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Pool Party, I stamped the trio of flowers diagonally with Coastal Cabana Ink.
  • On the 2 x 4 1/4 strip of Whisper White, I stamped the stems with Mossy Meadow Ink and the tops with Strawberry Slush Ink.  The greeting was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink, then the row of dots is Coastal Cabana again.
  • I thought it still needed a little “sumthin’ sumthin'”, so I tied a bow in the Coastal Cabana Thick Twine and added it to the flower stems with Mini Glue Dots.

See…really quick and easy…a great demo card for your classes, don’t you think?  OK…make sure to stop by Create with Connie and Mary and see our designer’s work…and sign up for the Spring Collection 2015!


Oh yeah!  Way to go BUCKEYES!!!  Woohoo!


Go Bucks!

You can take the girl out of the Buckeye State…but you can’t take the Buckeye out of the girl! I am so proud of the great games they played first again ‘Bama and then against those Ducks!

Also love the card, just want you to know that between you, Mary and Nicole I finally gave up and subbed to the Connie & Mary subscription for the Spring Mini. TOO much!!!! My paypal account has been getting a workout this month!

I will definitely be CASE’ing this one!
