CCMC463 Colorful Seasons

It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge! It’s a Case the Catalog challenge again this week!


For my “case the catalog”, I chose to use the layout again this week…along with the delightful Colorful Seasons stamp set.  There are just SO many things you can do with this one set!  But I especially LOVE the large “just breathe” stamp!  Again, so many uses for it…cheer someone up, or just because!  This card I think is much prettier than it photographed, too!



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.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Soft Sky, placed slightly on an angle.
  • Next is a 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Paper on an angle.
  • A strip of Navy Gingham Ribbon goes across the front and is secured in the back of the Soft Sky layer.
  • Just breathe was stamped with Night of Navy ink on a 1-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece of Whisper White, then angled on the front of the card.
  • The large leaf was stamped with Night of Navy Ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the small leave was stamped with Lemon Lime Twist Ink on Whisper White, both were cut with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, a few small Rhinestones were scattered on the front for a little bit of bling!

SUOC176 Colorful Seasons

The theme this time on SUO Challenges is “Out in the Garden”. Love the Colorful Seasons stamp set because of all the seasons represented.  And, when I think of a garden, I think of a nice chair and beautiful flowers.  I combined both on my card and used the new In Color, Berry Burst!  My Stamp Clubs loved this card last month!



Here’s my card:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Berry Burst cardstock, a 2-1/4 x 4 piece of Fresh Florals DSP was adhered along the bottom.
  • On the 3 x 4 piece of Whisper White, the tree limb from Colorful Seasons was stamped in Early Espresso Ink and the flowers in Berry Burst Ink.
  • The greeting from Colorful Seasons was stamped with Early Espresso Ink towards the left side.
  • The chair was cut with the Thinlet from Early Espresso cardstock and added to the front.
  • The drink was stamped with Berry Burst next to the chair.

That’s it!!!  SUPER simple, but yet love the look!  What can you do with the Out in the Garden theme? We love to see! And don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team for SUO Challenges did this week with this theme! I’m sure they will have some great ideas!
