CCMC493 – Friendships Sweetest Thoughts

Thursday already?  You know what that means!  Time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It’s a pretty color combination again for you to try!  Our Challenge Team rocked the colors this week!  (Of course, they rock the challenge every week, don’t they?)

Here’s what I made.  I love using the new Stampin’ Blends…they make coloring SO fun!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Marina Mist cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • A 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Sweet Soiree Designer Paper was added to the left side of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • Some 1/8″ Silver ribbon was added to hide the seam and secured in the back.
  • The flower card from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink and watercolor colored with Marina Mist Stampin’ Write Marker and AquaPainter.  The Calypso Coral and Old Olive areas were colored with Stampin’ Blends.  An extra birdie was added above the card.
  • The greeting was a little too big for the oval so I turned it at an angle.  I think it looks more like a retro orb and pretty cool!  I used Memento Black Ink.
  • A bow of 1/8 Silver Ribbon was tied around under the greeting oval.


Love how it turned out!  Check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – NEW Stuff!


It’s time for a new Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we will be featuring NEW STUFF!  We certainly have LOTS of options with the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs going live in a few days!  Woohoo!!!  I have DOUBLE new stamp sets that I used on my card…one from the Annual Catalog that I just purchased and one from the Occasions Catalog!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, the Marbled Background Stamp was inked with Soft Sky Ink and stamped and adhered to the base.  I love that this looks like Designer Paper!
  • A length of new Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon was placed across the 2-3/4 x 4 piece of Soft Sky cardstock and adhered in the back, then added to the front of the card.
  • Thinking of You from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts was stamped with Memento Black Ink along the bottom.
  • The Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts image was stamped with Memento Black Ink on scrap Whisper White and colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.  It was cut with the oval Stitched Shapes and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimentionals.


OK…make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations by continuing on with the blog hop!  I’m sure they have some FABULOUS creations!  Next up is our Create with Connie & Mary website with a FABULOUS new look and then Mary Brown and her creative design!
