Sure Do Love You, Always

Happy Thursday! So tickled to be with you and Create with Connie and Mary today!

We have a cool new sketch to inspire you –

Isn’t this fun?? I was sooo excited to be able to play! I used some new products that will be available in January (just a few days away) –

libbystamps, stampin up. CCMC, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Sure Do Love You, Sure Do Love You Bundle

Lovely card, right??

I used a new Designer Series Paper, Painted with Love Specialty, notice the gold in it? It’s very pretty! The images are stamped. And yes, they are sort of edgy the way they are stamped to! I love this!

I think this is going to be a great set to have!

The Design Team members created some wonderful cards using this sketch! Check them out on the Create with Connie and Mary blog. Create a card and link it up on our Facebook page!

Heartfelt Thoughts

Hello my stampin’ friends! Time to share another card inspiration for Create with Connie and Mary! This week – a color challenge!

Such wonderful, soft colors full of feeling!

I decided to try out a new Sale-a-Bration stamp, Heartfelt Blooms. It was just the perfect stamp for these colors that evoked a mood –

Panda Party Brings Joy

Welcome stampers! Glad you stopped by! Sharing a cute card designed for Create with Connie and Mary today. It’s Thursday –  we have a new challenge –

So, this is a really cool sketch! Aren’t they all??

I knew immediately I wanted to use a new Sale-a-Bration set, Party Pandas, but I also wanted to create with Christmas items before they retire.

Well, why not combine both?

libbystamps, stampin up, Watercolor Christmas Project Kit

Isn’t this A D O R A B L E ?????

I thought so!!!! I stamped the pandas (and, YES, I fussy cut them) and I stamped the word joy (and, fussy cut that too). I placed them on a strip of plaid.

Notice my favorite shiny product?? Yep – the foil envelope liners for the strip behind the plaid and the letter ‘string’. Did I mention, I just love this over the top shine!?!? As I have said – use your stuff!  

This is a fun, joyful, happy card! It’s those Pandas I tell you!

The other designers at Create with Connie and Mary created some nice cards too! Check them out on our blog! Want to try the sketch for yourself? You can link it up on our Facebook page! We’d love to see your creations!

Going back to the card for this week……I was inspired by a box of 1940’s reproduction ornaments I picked up on Friday. Fun, fresh, interesting colors! And, lots of glitz!

libbystamps, stampin up, Oh What Fun, Winter Wonder EF, CCMC, Silver Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil

I started with a Silver Foil panel, adding different sized strips of Powder Pink, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, and Berry Burst. I embossed that panel with the Winter Wonder folder them heat embossed the sentiment.

libbystamps, stampin up, Oh What Fun, Winter Wonder EF, CCMC, Silver Glimmer Paper, Silver FoilThe rhinestones were a nice touch of added bling – as if the Silver Glimmer paper wasn’t enough!

This is a sweet, fun, nostalgic card for me. I think it will go well with all the ornaments I just bought! I can’t wait to gift them together!

Go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. I know you’ll be inspired!

Comforting Cozy Quilt

Happy Thursday my friends! I’d like to share Create with Connie and Mary newest challenge –

Wonderful colors!

I’ve made lots Christmas cards lately, so I changed it today –

libbystamps, stampin up, Work of Art, Christmas Quilt, Quilt Top Embossing Folder, CCMC

The holiday season can be rough for some people. This is a perfect card for someone who’s having a bit of trouble during the holidays – don’t over look them.

I started with the Work of Art stamp set, (remember that one???) and stamped the lines in So Saffron. I paired the quilt lines with the ‘star’ shapes from the Christmas Quilt stamp set. Old and new!

The finishing touch was embossing the piece with the Quilt Top, also from the Holiday Mini.

The other Design Team members at Create with Connie and Mary created some wonderful cards using these colors. Check them out! If we inspired you, create a card and upload to our Facebook page! We’d love to see you there!

Stampin’ Up Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Work of Art, Christmas Quilt
  • Card Stock – So Saffron, Tranquil Tide
  • Ink – So Saffron, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral
  • Other – Quilt Top Embossing Folder

Bubble & Fizz

Hello my Thursday friends! Here to check out the new challenge for Create with Connie and Mary? You know we always have a great one!

Clean. Simple. Fun!

I’ve been really itching to play with new products………so, I did for this challenge –

I loved this combination of the Bubble Over bundle (stamp set and framelits) from the upcoming Spring Mini and the Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz from the upcoming 2018 Sale-a-bration. It’s a great combination.

Another great combination is the Design Team at Create with Connie and Mary! Check out their creations using this new sketch – then create something of your own and link it up on our Facebook page. We love to see how we inspire you!

You’ve Got This

Sharing a card today that I made for a childhood friend of mine – yes, I actually had a card I needed to create for someone!

The card speaks for itself –

libbystamps, stampin up, Labeler Alphabet, Ribbon of Courage, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon

I’m not very eloquent with words at a time like this, so, hopefully a card will convey what my words can not.

Her husband made her a binder with ‘Team Cheryl’ on it which was my inspiration for the card.

I designed the card first. I’m entering it into some challenges to spread the word. Make a card for that friend you know who needs it.
