CCMC388 Flowering Fields

It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  It’s a beautiful color challenge that we are sure you will like!  Come play along!


I used the Sale-A-Bration set, Flowering Fields, for my card:


CCMC388 Flowering Fields


Here are the details to create it:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
  • A 2-3/4 x 4 piece of Wildflower Fields Designer Paper (another SAB selection) was layered onto a 3 x 4 piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and placed on the front.
  • A 1/8 X 4 strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock was adhered across the top portion of the DSP.
  • The same size Lots of Label Framelits was cut from Whisper White and Blackberry Bliss.  The Blackberry Bliss one was adhered to the front as shown.
  • On the Whisper White, the Flowering Fields flower image and butterfly were stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink, then watercolored with Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay Markers and AquaPainter.  Before adding it to the front, two 3/4″ Circles were punched from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered behind the Whisper White label, along with Silver thread wrapped in a circle several times and adhered.  The label was popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, Celebrate You from Suite Sayings stamp set was stamped in the lower right corner with Tuxedo Black Ink.

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Anything Sale-A-Bration


Wow!  Christmas is OVER…how did that happen?  I love seeing family and friends, but also enjoy the week after relaxing and getting back to normal.  We still have another Christmas coming up with my oldest son and his family since they were at her folks this year, so we have that to look forward to.

This week’s theme is Anything Sale-A-Bration…well, we have an awesome selection to choose from this year!  It starts on January 4th…not too much longer to wait!  Here’s what I did using the stamp set, Flowering Fields.


Flowering Fields

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Wisteria Wonder, folded in half.
  • The Pear Pizzazz layer was cut to 3-3/4 x 5.
  • In the center of the 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 layer of Whisper White, the image from the SAB set, Flowering Fields was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink several times in a fan like shape.  The leaves and flowers were colored with Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder Markers.
  • A 1″ x 3-5/8 strip of the heart pattern in Have a Cuppa Designer Paper Stack was adhered to the bottom of the Whisper White.
  • The window sill from Hearth & Home Thinlets was cut twice from Crumb Cake cardstock, then the top of one trimmed off.  The edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink, then adhered the top band to the bottom full window sill for some dimension.
  • You’re in my thoughts from Watercolor Wishes was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink in the upper right corner.
  • Finally, a double strand of Linen Thread was tied in a box and adhered to the base of the flowers with a Mini Glue Dot.
