Mitten Mitten

Happy Thursday! Welcome to a Create with Connie and Mary new sketch challenge.

Today we have some beautiful colors to inspire you –

When I looked at these colors, I had thoughts of warmth and softness. So that is what I translated onto my card –

libbystamps, stampin up, SSmitten Mittens, Colorful Seasons, Smitten Mittens Bundle, Many Mittens, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, Layering Circles Framelits, CCMC

Don’t these look like really soft cozy mittens? Amazing how you can invoke this in a card design!

To start off, I used the Smitten Mittens bundle to create this card. I stamped the mittens and trim on a sheet from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (it’s actually the same sheet, just front and back!). Added the sentiment and stamped the snowflakes for a little dimension.

When it was finished, I felt it needed a little something, so I added the baker’s twine to the mitten edges.

Everyone on the Create with Connie and Mary Design team create some lovely cards! Go check them out.

When we inspire you, you can link up you card on our Facebook page!

Stampin’ Up Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Smitten Mittens, Colorful Seasons (snowflakes)
  • Framelits – Many Mittens, Layering Circles

Oh, Joy!

Quick post to start you week off creatively!

Instead of designing for one of my teams I’m on – I’m playing with someone else’s challenge!

Today, it’s for a long time love of mine, Freshly Made Sketches.

,

They always have clean, simple designs that are very easy to create with. I was drawn to this one.

libbystamps, stampin up, Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments, Quilted Christmas 1/4 Ribbon, FMS311

I went with colors of red and green. Perhaps Christmas colors, but the sentiment could evoke really anything! Of course, adding the wreath and the ribbon makes this totally Christmas!

libbystamps, stampin up, Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments, Quilted Christmas 1/4 Ribbon, FMS311

The up close of this mini wreath because it sooo sweet! A great addition to the card, don’t you think?

Glimmery Christmas Greetings

Hi Thursday friends! Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge!

What an awesome layout to get inspired by! A great starting!

I went with a Christmas themed card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Merry Patterns, Card Front Builder Thinlits, Merry Music Specialty DSP, Classic Label Punch, Winter Wonder EF, CCMC

Photographing this just does not do it justice!

I started by flipping over the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper and framelit cutting the trees. I did this to have the trees angled like this. It matched the sketch a little better. I placed that on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper. It’s reversed of what we normally would do.

libbystamps, stampin up, Merry Patterns, Card Front Builder Thinlits, Merry Music Specialty DSP, Classic Label Punch, Winter Wonder EF, CCMC

The other elements I just built after I created the focal point. I like the size of this sentiment from Merry Patterns. It fit the card nicely.

Everyone had a different take on our new sketch this week. Check out the other Design Team cards at Create with Connie and Mary. Link up your cards from the sketch on our Facebook page.
