This week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is our Favorite New Accessory from the Annual Catalog! This could be Designer Paper, Bling, or whatever accessory they wanted to use! I chose to use the new 2022-24 In Color Glimmer Paper! Wowzers! SO much sparkle!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Tahitian Tide cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was added on top.
- Three 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strips of Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis Glimmer Paper were added to the background.
- a 1-1/4 x 4 piece of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the greeting from Happiness Abounds in Orchid Oasis Ink.
- A 1/2 x 4 piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock was cut with the spiral strip die in the Bloomin’ Happiness Dies and adhered under the Basic White along the top. It was ruffled a little to give it some texture.
- Two of the flowers from Happiness Abounds stamp set were stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with a sponge dauber and Tahitian Tide Ink. The two leaves were stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with a sponge dauber and Parakeet Party Ink. They were cut with the Bloomin’ Happiness Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of In Color Matte Dots were added to the background.
Look at all that GLIMMER and it has a pretty ombre look, too!! 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!
