CCMC442 Avant Garden

It’s Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  Isn’t this a pretty color combination?  Of course, with yellow and green, my thoughts turned immediately to flowers!!!

 

Here’s my inspiration using these colors:

 

 

The details are:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Pacific Point cardstock was embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.
  • A 2-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Party Animal Designer Paper was placed across the front.
  • The Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelit is cut from Whisper White and the greeting stamped with Pacific Point Ink.
  • The Avant Garden flower was stamped three times with Crushed Curry on Whisper White and the center with Emerald Envy Ink, then hand-cut out and placed on the heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The six leaves were stamped with Emerald Envy Ink on Whisper White and hand-cut, then tucked under the flowers.

OK…go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  We also have some news on how the challenges will be done going forward!  So check us out!

Avant Garden

I recently participated in a swap and used the beautiful Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Avant Garden.  Since I’m tired of winter already, I cheered myself up by using some bright spring colors, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz!

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • In two corners of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Peekaboo Peach, the speckle stamp was stamped several times with Peekaboo Peach Ink.
  • A 3 x 4 piece of Succulent Garden Designer Paper was added on top with a 1/4 x 4 strip of Basic Black cardstock across the front.
  • The largest Stitched Shapes circle was cut from Whisper White, then stamped the Avant Garden flower head with Peekaboo Peach Ink, the center with Memento Black Ink, the stem and leaves with Pear Pizzazz Ink.
  • The greeting from Avant Garden was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
  • Some Linen Thread was tied in a bow and added to the stem with Mini Glue Dots.

 

I think it turned out SO pretty!  Want one for yourself?  This stamp set is available for FREE with a $50 order during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration sale!  Always a favorite time of year for me!  Click on the photos below to order from my online store!

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – It’s a Sale-A-Bration

Well, it has been a LONG process, but finally think my dad will get to go home today!  His quadruple by-pass surgery was December 6th…it has been a whole month of slow progress, setbacks and rehab.  He still has a lot of strength to gain back and will need home health nurses and PT/OT people to come to the house for a little while before he starts his formal cardiac rehab.  But…we are very thankful!  Thank you for your prayers!

 

WOOHOO  Sale-a-Bration has begun and the new Occasions Catalog is live!  How many of you would say this is your FAVORITE time of year?  Love getting FREE product with a $50 order, don’t you?  Stampin’ Up! has an awesome lineup of SAB products this year, too!

 

It is Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! This week’s theme is “It’s A Sale-A-Bration and  Design Team could choose to use what product to use!

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Peekaboo Peach cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, I drew a pencil line across towards the top.  I lined up the flower image and stamped three times across the top of the line with Peekaboo Peach Ink and twice under the line (flower upside down).
  • The centers were stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Ink.
  • The sprinkles were stamped off with Tip Top Taupe Ink.
  • The 1/8″ Whisper White Ribbon in the Occasions Catalog was placed across the front down the pencil line and adhered in the back.
  • The greeting from Avant Garden was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White and cut with the second from smallest Layering Oval Framelit, then adhered to the second from smallest scallop Layering Oval of Basic Black cardstock.  They are popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

SUPER easy card, but I really love how it turned out!  Continue on the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop to check out the details for our January Mini Session on the Create website, then continue around to Mary Brown’s and the Design Team’s blogs to see what they have done for you this week…or go backwards to see Melissa Davies’ card! Enjoy!
