Two for One Color Challenge ~ CCMC497, SIP137, TTTC034, SUO194


Hello there stampers!  Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary Challenge 497 - a color challenge.  This is such a fun combo, don't you think?
I added a couple of other challenges in the mix to help me along with my designer card--
For Stamp Ink Paper Tic Tac Toe Challenge #137 I chose to use Sequins, Flowers and Embossing.  For Tic Tac Toe Challenge 34 I used Die Cut, Emboss, and Floral. 


 I'm also playing along with SU Only Challenge 194 which challenges us to CASE something out of the current catalogs.  I chose to case the box from the Foil Frenzy Suite on the bottom left hand side of page 76 in the big catalog. I turned mine into a card, of course!

I also made this card using the CCMC Color Challenge and the SUO challenge.  I used the water-colored image on page 16 as my CASE inspiration.

Coffee Cafe Love ~ HSS284, PP380, FF0001



Hey there stampers! Today's card is my design leader card for Hand Stamped Sentiments 284 Sketch Challenge.  I used The Paper Players Color Challenge 380 and and brand new challenge blog called Festive Friday...in fact this is their very first challenge!  I'm so happy to play along!
I chose to go with Coffee Cafe to make my fun Valentine's Day card.  I used some retired Quilted Christmas DSP as the background for the yummy cup of coffee.  Even though this was intended for Christmas I love how it can be incorporated into a Valentine's Card easily!  Red gingham is classic!  
I also incorporated lots of hearts in different sizes and textures.  I think it's pleasing to the eye.  A little bit of paper doily adds some charm.  I popped the heart sentiment and the beans up on dimensionals as well as the gingham square.

Come play along with us at HSS.  This sketch is so versatile and I'm excited to see everyone's creations!

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Coffee Cafe, Merry Cafe
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark
Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White, Quilted Christmas DSP
Accessories: heart EF, Red bakers twine, Coffee Cups Framelits, White EP, paper doily

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Wooden Petal Palette ~ CCMC496


Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Create With Connie and Mary sketch Challenge #496.  I love the simplicity of this sketch.  I felt like playing around with the Wood Textures DSP and the little bird from Petal Palette.  I just love coloring with my Stampin' Blend markers!  I used the Crumb Cake dark and light, plus Bronze.  I think the colors really look good with the wood paper.  I jazzed things up with some foliage die cuts and leaf punch in black.  The white background is embossed with Pinewood Planks Dynamic Texture folder.  I topped everything off with a few black sequins and a couple rhinestones in the center of the flowers. 





I hope you'll be able to join us this week!  Share your creation on the Create with Connie and Mary Facebook page.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Sponge Blended Happy Birthday ~ CCMC495


Hello stampers!  Today's card is for the newest Create with Connie and Mary color challenge.  
I thought these colors would blend together beautifully, so that's the idea I went with. I sponged Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry together on a scrap of white cardstock and then used the Happy Birthday thinlit die and cut out this awesome sentiment.  I paired it up with Black and white to help the colors pop.
I stamped the rose bunch from Petal Palette on the background panel.  


I added a bit more color by adding some iridescent sequins, some Calypso Coral ribbon and mini sequin trim.


Here's the inside of the card.  This sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
