This week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is “fall colors”. Don’t you just LOVE this time of year in the Midwest with all the leaves changing colors? Although it IS a big cooler than I like!
I know I’ve mentioned that Blackberry Beauty DSP really didn’t appeal to me when I first saw it in the catalog. The color combination is just not one I would have put together. However, once I received it, I fell in love! It is GORGEOUS!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Blackberry Bliss cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.
- A 3-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Blackberry Beauty DSP was added towards the left side.
- Another 2 x 4 piece of Blackberry Beauty DSP was added across the front.
- The branch from Meadow Dies was cut from Rose Gold/Gold Metallic Paper and added to the front.
- Happy Fall Y’All from Banner Year was stamped with Cinnamon Cider Ink on Very Vanilla, then cut with the label from the Meadow Dies. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Simply Elegant Gold Trim was tied in a bow and added to the front with a Mini Glue Dot.
- Three Brushed Metallic Dots were added to the background.
OK, next up on our blog hop is our Create with Connie and Mary website, then on to creative Mary Brown, or head backwards to see Melissa Davies’ fabulous project and see what everyone did with this challenge!
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!
