Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite New In Color

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Our Favorite New In Color” this week.  Hands down…my favorite new In Color is Lemon Lime Twist!!!  I love the neon greens!  In fact, I still have Kiwi Kiss and Lucky Limeade in my collection!  So, I was VERY happy to see our new Lemon Lime Twist color!

 

My dad’s 80th birthday was on June 2nd, so I made this card for him (and lost it for a while in the move!)  I thought I was going to have to recreate it.  But, then we finally found my box of finished cards…whew!  Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White was embossed with the Oh My Stars embossing folder.
  • A length of Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon was wrapped to the back and adhered.
  • The Whisper White layer was added to a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 layer of Basic Black for a nice border.  Then added to the base card.
  • The number 80 was cut with the Layered Numbers Framelits from Basic Black cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals right above the ribbon.
  • The dotted balloon was stamped twice with Lucky Lime Twist on Whisper White and the Hooray with Memento Black Ink, then punched with the Balloon Builder Punch and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The strings were hand-drawn with the Basic Black Marker (wished I would have used the fine tip!!!)
  • Another bit of Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was tied in a knot, then cut and added as a bow on the strings.

That’s it!  Love how easy it is to personalize our cards for someone very special!  OK…check out what the rest of the Design Team and their Favorite In Color cards by taking our Saturday Blog Hop!

CCMC461 Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Yeah!!!  My FIRST card created in my new home!  Wow…it has been a process, for sure!  My poor husband has about worn himself out helping me find things buried in the basement!  But, I’ve finally found enough stuff that I can make cards again!  lol!  Still need to order my cabinets, they will take 8 weeks to get installed…and that is on an expedited schedule!

 

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

 

 

I chose to use the layout as my inspiration this week!  The new Powder Pink In Color is so soft and pretty!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Powder Pink, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The open scroll flower from Happy Birthday Gorgeous was stamped with Powder Pink Ink randomly in the background.  I also used the speckles from Timeless Texture stamp set.
  • A 1-1/2 x 4-1/2 piece of Powder Pink Fresh Florals was added to the front, with a 1/2 x 4-1/2 piece of Fresh Fig Cardstock partially behind it.  A 1/4 x 5 strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper was placed across the front.
  • It’s Your Day from Happy Birthday Gorgeous was stamped with Fresh Fig Ink on Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch.
  • Another flower was stamped with Powder Pink Ink on Powder Pink cardstock, then cut out.  Two leaves were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist Ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and cut out.  They were added to the front of the label.

That’s it!  Pretty simple!  Check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  And while you are there…don’t forget to sign up for our JUNE MINI SESSION that is starting soon!
