Smokey Kitty ~ CCMC471

Hey there stampers!  It's Create with Connie and Mary color challenge time!  Smokey Slate, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist are our trio this week.  I chose to go with a cute, gray kitty cat and built my card around her.  I based my design on Chris Slogar's cards, the palm tree being one of my favorites ever!  Thanks Chris!
I also love the little hearts in the thought bubble.  This little kitty is saying Love You!  
One thing I realized on my card as I'm typing up my post....I realized the Falling Petals embossing folder is retired.  I really had no idea!  I totally thought it was in the new catalog still!  Oh boy....I better do some more studying of the 2017-18 catalog!

Here's a list of my supplies....
stamps: Foxy Friends, Thoughtful Banners, Eastern Beauty
Ink: Black, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper: Smokey Slate, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, White, Eastern Palace DSP
Accessories: Falling Petals EF, Fox Builder punch, Scalloped circle thinlit, circle thinlit, paper doily

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Two for One! ~ HSS270

Hey guys!  It's time for another Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!  This time we have a color challenge with Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.  I love the soft, pretty color combo.  

I based my card on the sketch from the Inkspired Sketch #62.  My panel is flipped upside down though.  
I also decided to use my new Fancy Foil specialty acetate.  It really is fancy, isn't it?  I can totally dress up any card!

So I actually made two cards.  The above card was my second take.  The first one was alright, but I decided I wanted to give this color combination another go.  Here's the first card I made....

I hope you'll join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments for our two week color challenge!
Thanks for taking a peek!

Country/Rustic Jar ~ CCMC469, WWC130

Hello stampers!  Create with Connie and Mary time again! Isn't this a pretty color combo we have this week?  I've always been partial to navy and pink.  I added in some neutrals in the form of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  I really wanted to use my new Tree Rings background stamp.  I think it's so cool!  And actually this was the first time I've used Pinewood Planks Dynamic folder.  Ironically these two items were some of my number one picks from the new catalog and I'm just now getting around to using them!  Go figure!  I love the country/rustic look of all these elements together.  I wish this look had been a trend when I got married.  I would have been all about it!
I'm also sharing my card with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 130-Anything Goes Feminine.  What could be more feminine than pink and purple flowers?

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Tree Rings, Jar of Love
Ink: Powder Pink, Night of Navy, Fresh Fig, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Versa Mark
Paper: White, Crumb Cake, Vellum
Accessories: Night of Navy gingham ribbon, Everyday Jar framelits, White EP, Pinewood Planks Dynamic folder, paper doily
