Saturday Blog Hop – Pocket Cards

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is “Pocket Cards”…so many different kinds of pocket cards, it will be interesting to see what the Design Team comes up with!

So my pocket card uses the Oh So Succulent Bundle!

 

 

Here are the details on this card:

  • The base pocket envelope uses the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit (SO glad this is staying) and the Succulent Garden Designer Paper.  LOVE this pattern and I’ve been hoarding it.  But this will be my mom’s Mother’s Day card, so finally decided to cut into it.
  • A 1/2″ coordinating piece of DSP was placed across the front.
  • The Succulent was cut from Old Olive cardstock and the tips stamped with White Craft Ink, then sponged with White Craft Ink on the edges.  The very tips were also sponged with Rich Razzleberry Ink.  The layers are all attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots, then placed on the front of the bag.
  • Inside the bag, a 3-1/4 x 4 piece of Whisper White was stamped with the succulent image in Memento Black Ink and Old Olive Ink inside.  A strip of coordinating DSP was added to the bottom.
  • The Whisper White layer was added to a 3-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.
  • Happy Mother’s Day from Oh So Succulent stamp set was stamped with Memento Black Ink.

Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team pocket card creations this week! I can’t wait to see what they chose to do with this blog hop challenge! Next up is our Create with Connie and Mary website to find out more about our new JUNE MINI SESSION, then onto Mary Brown or head backwards to Melissa Davies!

Saturday Blog Hop – Spring Flowers

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is “Spring Flowers” this week!  It is SO nice to see the grass greening up, the daffodils and early flowers in bloom, and the trees starting to bud out.  I love this time of year…although my allergies do NOT.  Must be something with the flowering trees to cause my itchy eyes and nose!  lol!

 

 

I love the Succulent Framelits all on their own and have used them for SEVERAL of my Create projects.  Only the greeting is stamped!  Here are the details on this card:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Peekaboo Peach cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 2 x 4 piece of Sahara Sand Neutrals Designer Paper was adhered across the bottom of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • A length of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was placed across the front and adhered in the back to hide the seam.  I am going to MISS that ribbon when it retires!
  • Cut two of the medium larger flower shapes of Succulents with So Saffron cardstock, then the two smallest sizes from Peekaboo Peach cardstock for the center.  Adhere all together, then add to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color a Perfect White Accent with Black Sharpie Marker and add to center.
  • Cut another of the medium larger flower shape of Succulent from Pear Pizzazz cardstock, then cut of two petals (twice) for the leaves.  Tuck and adhere under the flowers.
  • Stamp the Happy Mother’s Day greeting from Oh So Succulent with Memento Black Ink.

 

I’m SO happy with how this turned out and can’t wait to give it to my mom for Mother’s Day this year!
