It’s time for Create with Connie and Mary’s Inspiration Monday!!! It’s a fun geometric inspiration this week! I love the colors and thought immediately of Lovely Lipstick! My next thought was that the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper would be PERFECT for this challenge…and Mary had the same thought, although our cards came out totally different!
So, here is what I came up using our newest In Color, Lovely Lipstick and a brand new small greeting set, Itty Bitty Greetings to replace Teeny Tiny Wishes…yeah!!!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lovely Lipstick cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- At the bottom of the base, a 1 x 5-1/2 piece of Lovely Lipstick In Color Designer Paper was added.
- The Delightfully Detailed Laser panel was cut and added to a 3-1/2 x 5 piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, then added to a 3-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic Black cardstock.
- The greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White and punched with the 1″ Circle Punch, then layered on a 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle punch of Basic Black. It’s popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and place in one of the circles of the panel.
Really! That’s all there is to it!!! So simple, but dramatic with the laser-cut detail on there, isn’t it?
OK…go check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Challenge this week 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!
