Hello! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. We have a pretty color combination for this week…could be used for a variety of seasons! I went with WINTER as the colors are in the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper!
Not much stamping on here…mostly cutting out directly from the Penguin Playmates DSP again!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Just Jade cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Fresh Freesia cardstock is embossed with the Wintery Embossing Folder on the left side.
- A 1 x 5-1/4 strip of stripe Penguin Playmates DSP was added to the right side and a 1/8 x 5-1/4 strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock to hide the seam.
- A circle was cut from Just Jade with the Layering Circle Dies and the snowflakes from Snowbuddy Better stamp set stamped in the background with Just Jade Ink.
- A piece of Basic White was torn and trimmed with the Layering Circle Die for a snowbank, and adhere to the bottom of the circle.
- It was layered on a slightly larger Scallop Circle cut from Misty Moonlight.
- The snowman was hand-cut from the Penguin Playmates DSP and added to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting from Snowbuddy Better stamp set was stamped with Just Jade Ink on 1/2 x 2 piece of Basic White cardstock and the end cut at an angle. It was tucked under the snowman with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
- A trio of Subtle Shimmer Sequins were added to the background.
SO MUCH FUN! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials. See more details here!
Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
